Meditation Jar

Stormy Stewart Recipe

By Stormy Stewart karlyn255


A Mind Jar is a meditation tool to use whenever a child feels stressed, overwhelmed or upset. Imagine the glitter as your thoughts. When you shake the jar, imagine your head full of whirling thoughts, then watch them slowly settle while you calm down.

Also great for just quieting your mind

Eric is a list maker and he is systematic about using it. On the other hand I will make a list and leave it at home.
