2-4 years meditation



Thanks for dropping by.  We are going to guide you through basic and simple meditation techniques that you can practice with your child. Very soon he/she will become content and will look forward to meditating each day. Let’s start with a five-minute meditation that you can do anytime of the day. However we advised to meditate twice a day in the morning and in the evening.

meditate with your kid

Daily meditation steps for your child

First sit down comfortably with your child on the floor. We suggest you sit behind your child so it is easier to guide him.

Then raise your own Kundalini. Now follow this same procedure on your child to raise his Kundalini. While you do so, you can sing the Kundalini song to make it more fun:

Uppy, uppy, uppy Mother Kundalini, one.
Uppy, uppy, uppy Mother Kundalini, one, two.
Uppy, uppy, uppy Mother Kundalini, one, two, three

bandhanThe next step is to give to your child a layer of vibrations that will provide him protection. This protection is known as “bandhan”. Imagine drawing a rainbow with your right hand from the child’s left hip, over the top of his head and down to his right hip and back again. Back and forth is considered one time. Just as there are seven colours in the rainbow and seven chakras in the subtle system, you do this seven times to give your child a full bandhan. You can sing the meditation-childrennames of each chakra if you like:  Mooladhara, Swadhistana, Nabhi &Void, Anahat, Vishuddhi, Agnya and Sahasrara or you can sing a colour of the rainbow for each bandhan:  “orange rainbow”, “yellow rainbow”, “green rainbow”, “red rainbow”, “blue rainbow”, “white rainbow”, “all the rainbows”! (These colours are the actual colours of each chakra).

Now you are ready to start meditating. Please ask your child to close his eyes for a little bit.

meditation and playThen say out-loud “Kundalini please let me feel your magic power”. This magic power refers to the energy and happiness your child can feel when you  repeat the affirmation.

To strengthen your child’s Kundalini, put your right hand over your child’s sacrum bone area and then raise your hand up along his spine until you reach the top of his head. With this motion you are lifting the Kundalini energy to help it stand all the way up. Do this seven times.

You can sing this song as you lift your child’s Kundalini:

Dear Mother Kundalini, Kundalini, please come up, please come up, please come up.
Mother Kundalini, Kundalini, please come up, and open up my Sahasrara.

Once you have finished singing the song, please ask your child to be quiet for a bit and in this short time he will feel the manifestation of the kundalini and experience the joy of it.

To finish off with the meditation please raise you and your child’s Kundalini and give yourselves a bandhan.


Learning the 3 channels of energy.

3 channels of energyIn this chapter you will learn about the channels of energy that are inside of us. Please read this link the three channels of energy to understand how the three channels work and how they can be balanced.

1. Moon Channel

left side - moon channelmoon

The Moon Channel is blue and it rises along the left side of our body. It takes care of how we feel about ourselves and how much we love our mommy and daddy and our friends.

2. Sun Channel

right side -swadisthan


The Sun Channel is yellow and it rises along the right side of our body.  It takes care of our activity, for example when we move our hands and legs, play with pots and pans and run around!

3. Lotus Channel

sushumna channellotus

The Lotus Channel is white and it rises along the center of our body. It keeps us in the present moment, so we can feel happy and be spontaneous no matter what we are doing, like playing, singing, reading and going down the slide at the playground.


Learn how to balance the channels of energy:
Now it is time for us to learn how to balance the channels. But before take your time to read the following link balancing the channels , it will help you to have a better understanding of this session.

Balancing the Moon Channel:

Sometimes the channels go up and down, like a seesaw. You know the Moon Channel is a little down when you feel a bit of a warm breeze on your left hand. To help steady the Moon Channel you can put your left hand on our lap and your right hand on the ground and meditate like that for a few minutes.

Balancing the Sun Channel:

If you feel a little bit of a warm breeze on your right hand that means the Sun Channel is a bit down. To steady the Sun Channel meditate for a little while with your right hand on your lap and your left hand up and towards the air behind you. The air will pull all the not nice things out of your Sun Channel.

Balancing the Lotus Channel:

If you feel both hands are a little bit warm, then you can put both hands on the ground when you meditate. Mother Earth will help you by sucking out all the yucky things from your Lotus Channel.

Wake up little boy.
Wake up little girl.
It’s time for meditation.
We hope you have slept very well through the night.
It’s morning meditation.
Our Mother is waiting – joyful and bright ‐ to give everyone of us her morning light.

Open up your hands and feel the cool…
Open up your hands and feel the cool vibrations.
Open up your hands and feel the love.
Our Mother’s love is there for you

and you  and you and you and you
And aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaall of us.

Divine inspiration

Reading a poem to your child at any time of the day will uplift his soul. Here is an inspiring poem written by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, the founder of Sahaja Yoga:

I want to be smaller,
Like a dust particle
Which moves with the wind
It goes everywhere,
can go,
Sit on the head of a king
Or can go
And fall at the feet of someone
And it can go
And sit everywhere
But I want to be a particle of dust
That is fragrant,
That is nourishing
That is enlightening.

We hope you enjoyed learning about Sahaj meditation for babies. In the next chapter you will learn about how to continue meditation with 4-6 years old.

    Hi, we have a CD with this music and use it from time to time for a meditation with the kids (1.5 and 3 yrs). I’m always amazed at how long they can keep their attention with it. Also in the car it feels like a more useful time spending with them as opposed to what is otherwise available…
    Keep up the good work!

    Dear Priya,

    below a few links that you can use:

    For children’s music you can go to http://www.kundala.de/english/shop/. The CD from 2010 is in English and fantastic.
    On YouTube you can also find a guided meditation for children which works very well here:

    There is also specifically some fantastic music by the Australian group ‘Music of Joy’. You can preview a lot of their music directly from our website, and buy the music via download or CD from their website at: http://www.musicofjoy.com.au.
    Another quality Sahaj group is Nirmal Bhakti and you can find their website and ordering details at http://www.nirmalbhakti.com/.

    All the best,
