WEEK ONE: RED

Self Mastery. Control. Emotional Intelligence.

Guardian of the Root Chakra, Lam is the Pod focused on trust and grounding.

Exercises to Promote:

Self Mastery. Control. Emotional Intelligence.

WEEK TWO: ORANGE

Exploration. Compassion. Independence.

VAM’S STORY

Guardian of the Belly Chakra, Vam is the Pod focused on emotions and feeling.


 When we feel an uncomfortable emotion, we label the emotion as “bad”. We use this tactic to prevent ourselves from feeling anything that may be “wrong”, instead of giving ourselves permission to feel what we feel. Practice giving yourself the space to be true to your experience without focusing on how you “should” feel or what is a “right” response. Remove the shame & be more confident in your interaction with the world.

Exercises to Promote:

Happiness. Enthusiasm. Self Assurance.

SIGHT

COLORING PAGE

Take some time to check in with your little one today by bringing VAM to life with color! Download a special VAM coloring page for your little one to print and enjoy. 

Ask them about the colors they are using, and if they mind you joining in! Let them guide your color selection and where they want you to color, building trust and open communication in even the most simple of activities.

SOUND

POEM

Is your child having some trouble navigating their internal landscape?

 

Sit together to listen to this poem. Then, use this opportunity to start a conversation:

“How are you feeling?” Listen to your child’s response, thank them for sharing, and tell them it is ok to feel how they feel. Conversations like these will become easier the more you have them and will do more than just build your child’s confidence, they will strengthen your relationship as well!

SENSORY SNACK ACTIVITY

BIKE RIDE

Take advantage of the warm summer weather and go on a bike ride adventure with your little one! 

Give your child the opportunity to guide the adventure by presenting them with options, “Would you like to go left or right?” “Would you like to pause here to smell these flowers or take a rest under the tree’s shade?” 
By giving them the opportunity to exercise their autonomy, you are also giving them the space to feel comfortable making decisions and expressing preferences.

WEEK THREE: YELLOW

Personal Power. Self Esteem. Motivation.

 

RAM’S STORY

Guardian of the Solar Plexus Chakra, Ram is the Pod focused on confidence and self esteem.

When we experience emotions that we worry won’t be acceptable to others, we may rewrite how we feel. We may share that we feel one way when we really feel another. Nonacceptance is an uncomfortable experience, feeling we can’t be who we really are is more uncomfortable. Giving ourselves permission to feel how we feel & the freedom to express those feelings in complete vulnerability is a powerful & joyous celebration.

Exercises to Promote:

Personal Power. Self Esteem. Motivation.

SIGHT

COLORING PAGE

Coloring an image the way we want may be one of the most simple ways of exercising our will.

Print out this coloring page of RAM for your little one and be sure to give them a rainbow full of options to play with.

 

What is RAM up to? Invite your little one tell RAM’s latest story by filling the RAM coloring page background.

Is RAM playing outside near the trees? Or is RAM soaring in the sky? It’s up to your little one!

SOUND

POEM

We all need reminding that it is ok to feel how we feel. Listen to the RAM poem with your little one and consider the times you have rewritten your own feelings for others. How did that feel?

 

Invite your little one into the discussion by sharing some of your experiences and asking them what makes their tummies ache. Then, share RAM’s wisdom and repeat after RAM, “I’m willing and able, my core fire is stable! My own power is secure, I know what I know and I am sure!”

SENSORY SNACK ACTIVITY

ROLLER SKATE

Rollerblading is experiencing a resurgence in popularity—time to introduce rollerblading to the next generation! 

Put on your safety pads and roll through your neighborhood with your little one. 
What haven’t you seen or noticed before?

Ask your little one what they notice. You will be surprised at what they share with you!

WEEK FOUR: GREEN

Exploration. Compassion. Independence.

 

YAM’S STORY

Guardian of the Heart Chakra, Yam is the Pod focused on love and compassion.

Love can be an interesting thing to navigate—whether it be love for others or for ourselves. We may not always allow ourselves feel love or show love (if we even know how). YAM reminds us that love starts from within and is an all-encompassing act of acceptance and compassion for others, and also for ourselves. When we don’t feel joy, when we are hurt or sad, we may be inclined to bury that  discomfort deep within ourselves to avoid feeling what we feel.

Burying discomfort, means we are not accepting our whole feelings. Consider opening yourself to exploring it, understanding it, accepting it, and then embracing it. Let yourself lead from a place of compassion, again, not just for others, but and also for yourself. Open yourself to love. And radiate from it.

Exercises to Promote:

Exploration. Compassion. Independence.

SIGHT

COLORING PAGE

Give your little one a rainbow palette and have them fill YAM’s world full of color. As they color, play the “Rose and Thorn” game. Have them share the roses in their lives, the positives. Then, ask them about the thorns,  the little pricks or triggers that feel uncomfortable.  Explore the thorns with them. What is it about these thorns that instill uncomfortable feelings?

 

Is there a way to explore how to make that thorn into a bud (or a new opportunity to be your most whole self)? Take some time to also share with them a couple of your own “Roses,” “Thorns,” and “Buds.” They may have some insights you haven’t considered!

SOUND

POEM

Does your little one need an extra little snuggle today? Listen to YAM’s poem and hold them tight.

 

Then, practice YAM’s deep belly breaths, in and out. Keep deep breathing as a calm settles in. Repeat YAM’s mantra, “I practice and embody unconditional love,” and follow with some more YAM deep belly breaths. Note the change in your little one’s energy. Are they feeling better? Offer them the opportunity to select the next step—more cuddles, more breathing, more spoken affirmations, and/or more listening to YAM’s poem. Remind them that this is a daily practice, and that navigating these feelings is not bad—just a part of being human.

SENSORY SNACK ACTIVITY

SOCCER

Take advantage of the cooling weather and fresh air and play a little kick ball with your little one.

 

It doesn’t have to be a complete game of soccer—it can be as simple and running up and down the length of a local field, kicking the ball back and forth between one another.

Ask them to show you how far they can kick their ball and be amazed by their ability to channel their energy into a single direction!
