The more we affirm words, the more they become our truth. In our first seven years, our belief system is created. This is stated by many childhood psychologists and these years stem who we are as a person. Therefore if we tell a child enough times that they are smart, beautiful and powerful (which we all are) during the early years, they will know this as truth for the years to come. Sadly so many of us are not being told this, and these negative imprints are the biggest injustice to what we are capable of, effecting us in our adult years.
Here are 6 Benefits to why every child needs a Sunchild Affirmation deck:
Builds resilience and self-esteem
Life is full of challenges, high and lows. We, of course, as parents want to protect our children from any pain and suffering. But we can't be there for every fall, and often the falls make us who we are today. The SunChild deck allows a child to have the knowing that they are like the mountain in the world standing tall and strong so that no pebbles can ever knock them down. Through the I am statements which we repeat to a child, we are building both the resilience and self-esteem. This leads to whatever happens in life; your child will have a deep knowing they are supported as they hold the tools for life challenges.
Connecting the child back to natures support
With more children being diagnosed daily with ADHD and anxiety, it is such an importance to get children amongst nature. Especially with the massive rise of technology, gaming and social media. Not just for their physical but also social and mental health. When outside, we are instantly happier and connecting back to Self. So many studies, which are backed up by science, state how much a lack of sunlight can cause depression and many other illnesses. But the love for the outside has to be inspired within us when we are young. This is why Sunchild's ethos is to be outdoors, and our thought of the day always comes back to connecting the child to mother earth.
Grow knowing we hold everything inside to create a life full of happiness
I am statements becomes the child lenses of how they see themselves in the world. When we tell our children that they hold the light within enough times, they will start to believe it as truth. By giving children this knowledge, we are reminding them daily of their natural state of bliss. They can grow confidently with a strong sense of Self, believing that they are beautiful, fulfilled and loved, just the way they are.
Speaks directly to the level of consciousness the child is at
When creating the SunChild deck, I wanted to create an affirmation deck that children of all ages could connect to. Our cards hold three layers. The I am statement, which becomes the children magic word of the day. A clear image of nature and help illustrate the meaning of the cards. And finally thought of the day which connects the child to have a deeper understanding, that they are nature capable of anything. This means that however, old your child is they will always take what they need for the deck. 0-3 may just connect with the beautiful images and be inspired with a love for the outdoor. 3-5 will take the I am statement see that affirmative words as their own and which they can hold in their pocket all day. And an older child will understand that they are that mountain standing tall and strong so in life, nothing can pull them down. SunChild uses words and images that speak directly to the child making our affirmation deck is so unique.
Consciously created using recycled paper and love.
SunChild deck was created using only love every step of the way. When creating the deck, I always came back to what would myself as a child need, the answer is love, and if I needed to hear that, then so many other children must. The cards are consciously created taking the Vedic wisdom and putting it in language children could resonate with. The art has all been handpainted every step of the way, as when something is homemade, it holds a higher vibration, and we can feel how much love has been put into the making. We used only recycled paper, as our ethos is to love our plant and donate 5% of profits to 'Feel the Magic' charity.
Empowering children to have the best start in life
Childhood trauma can affect so many adults, as so much of who we are today stems from the impression in childhood. This is why we must empower and support children from the start so that they have the tools they need to support their wellbeing later on in life. If we were taught when we were young how to be grateful and love ourselves no matter what, how much better would our life be? SunChild's affirmation cards plant the seed of empowerment when we are young, and allow children to grow to believe in themselves, knowing that they are capable of anything!
This is why it is so vital to use affirmation deck like SunChild so children can grow knowing just how incredible they are and can keep their light shining out in the world! Rather than doing the work in their adult life to come home back to their truth, they will innately grow knowing they are pure light, supported always.
I believe in my heart that we are all born of pure light. With the magic of a SunChild deck and repeating the affirmations daily to your little one we together can keep that light shining.
With love, light and above all support,
