Guided Meditation For Kids: Finding Joy in Obedience

Hi there, kids! Today, we’re going to imagine a fun and happy journey together. We’ll learn how listening and following rules can make us feel good inside.

Find a comfy spot to sit or lie down, close your eyes, and let’s start.

First, let’s take some nice, deep breaths. Breathe in through your nose, hold it for a moment, and then breathe out through your mouth. Let’s do that three times. 

Breathe in… and out.

Breathe in… and out.

Breathe in… and out.

Now, imagine you are lying on a soft, fluffy cloud. The cloud is warm and comfy, and it’s carrying you gently through the sky. 

Think of a place where you feel happy. It could be at the playground, in your room, or maybe at your favorite candy shop. Picture yourself there, with all the things that make you smile.

In your happy place, imagine meeting a new best friend named Din. Together you are going to explore how following rules can make us happy and healthy.

Hi new best friend! My name is Din, I am a little birdie and I live in a beautiful forest with many other birds. Every morning, we would fly around the forest looking for delicious seeds and fruits from the trees. Dins’ favorite fruit is a big juicy red apple! 

All the birdies are allowed to eat all the seeds and fruit they wish in the forest, except there is one BIG tree in the middle of the forest that nobody is allowed to eat from. This big tree creates Blue apples that look shiny and tempting. 

One day, a big bully came up to you and Din and said. “I bet you are not brave enough to eat a blue apple!” This bully was laughing and making fun of Din because Din is a really good birdie that always follows the rules. This bully’s name is Steve. 

Din looks at you kind of sad. 

What do you think Din should do?

Din was curious and started walking closer to the big tree. 

Then suddenly a voice from the sky spoke right to you and Din. “Din you are a good birdie. Don’t let Steve pressure you into breaking the rules. You are so special with so many gifts and talents, continue to obey the rules of the forest and you will be very very blessed.”

Din stopped right away, grabbed your hand and started walking away from the big tree. 

Steve on the other hand didn’t hear the voice. And because he wanted to prove to you and Din how much of a bad bird he was, so he flew right to the big tree, plucked a blue apple and gulped it in front of you and Din.

Right away Steve fell to the ground and turned into a stone.

That’s what bad birds do, they turn to stones and become pebbles on the ground.

Din felt so special that a voice protected him from breaking the rules. Now Din can continue living with so much joy in his beautiful forest with friends and family.

Think about Din’s story. Sometimes, we may feel pressure to do the wrong thing, just like Din there may be temptation. But when we listen to people who care about us, like our parents, teachers or God, we feel happy and safe.

Remember kids, it’s always good to follow rules. They are there to protect you and keep you safe. Don’t be like Steve thinking he was better than following the rules, because now he is a pebble but Din is thriving and living his best life.

Now, imagine the happy feeling that surrounds you when you are also thriving because you followed the rules and obeyed your parents and teachers. When you listen and follow rules, you spread happiness around you. You make your home, school, and all your places filled with joy and love.

Take one more deep breath in… and out. Wiggle your fingers and toes. When you’re ready, slowly open your eyes. Remember, just like Din, you can find joy in listening and following rules.Thank you for joining us in this meditation. 

We hope you feel loved and Safe. 

Until next time, stay calm and centered.
