Transform your child’s mindset
Mum Heather Rose has created a simple way to help children believe in themselves
When a video of her son, Isaac, 10, reading a Law of Attraction book went viral on Facebook, an idea hatched in Heather’s mind.
The video was watched by over 5,000 people. Heather was contacted by hundreds of parents who said that, like Isaac, their children were struggling with confidence and a lack of self-esteem.
This inspired Heather to set up Mindset and Me, which creates affirmation cards for kids, with messages such as ‘I am brave’ and ‘I am strong’.
Since the company was launched in April, it has helped hundreds of children develop their sense of self-worth and believe they can achieve anything they want to.
Heather was introduced to the Law of Attraction by a mindset coach three years before starting the business.
She has since used daily affirmations in her own life to erase years of negative thoughts about herself.
A positive step
‘I was bullied at school, told I was fat and ugly and would never amount to anything or find love. Life didn’t get any easier as I got older and consequently I had terrible low self-esteem and even attempted suicide once when I was 16,’ she explains.
‘Isaac was diagnosed with ADHD and autism when he was five and I was really worried about him having a tough start in life like I had done, and the effect it would have on his confidence.’
After finishing her training in mindset and positive affirmations, Heather used her new-found knowledge to re-evaluate how she looked at her own life, as well as build her belief in herself. It made such a difference to her private life and her job running an online cosmetics business.
‘My entire outlook on life was improving but about a year ago Isaac was having a bad time and struggling with confidence. So, I bought him a Law of Attraction book designed for children, and he loved reading it. That’s why I shared the clip online.
‘Isaac and I began making our own children’s positive affirmation cards and I noticed how his outlook and behaviour improved dramatically.’
Now Heather says Isaac is like a different child – even his teachers have noticed. He’s started being kinder and finding it easier to concentrate.
‘Mindset is everything, it can help children develop and learn not to give up. We want our children to be confident, resilient and develop high self-esteem,’ says Heather.
Isaac adds: ‘Affirmations make me be positive, do good things and I feel happier.’
‘His outlook and behaviour
‘ONE NIGHT when I was six, I was in bed playing with my doll when I noticed the figure of an old man kneeling beside me. I wasn’t scared, and he disappeared after a second or two,’ recalls Christine Tadman, from Great Yarmouth.
‘Since then I’ve been fascinated by the idea of an afterlife and I find it comforting to think we may not be alone in this world. During difficult times, I’ve felt there has been someone or something guiding me.
‘Once when I needed help,
I heard a whisper of guidance in my ear, even though no one was nearby. I felt a cold, but not uncomfortable, presence. A few days later, my friend passed away. Also, I’m always finding small white feathers around my flat and in my handbag.
‘Then I came across the book Angel Wings by Jacky Newcomb. It contains stories from people who have had contact with angels. It was a revelation as they mirrored my feeling that I am being supported by something I don’t completely understand. It’s made me feel very liberated, and able to be myself.
The book has also given me the confidence to discuss my thoughts with friends and family.
‘In future, if I feel I’m being guided by an angel, I will be happy to act
