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.

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.
