If you are excited about the Law of Attraction and how consciously applying it betters your life, you’ve probably wondered if this is something you could teach to your child. What is the right age for kids to learn this principle, and the wonderful practice of visualization?

A child can be taught to visualize as early as age 4 or 5, and the Law of Attraction can be understood by some kids at that age while others will better comprehend it at age 7 or 8. Intellectually understanding how the law works takes a certain level of cognitive development, but intuitive understanding it is possible at a much earlier age. This is why a very young child can visualize, and be practicing the Law of Attraction with great success, long before they can pronounce the term or explain it in words.

And of course, explaining it isn’t as important as living it. Visualization, the key strategy at the heart of LOA, is a skill that kids take to like ducks to water. In fact, learning to visualize is much easier for children than for most adults. That’s because visualization operates on the principle of imagining, and children imagine all day long. It’s a skill they are born with, and one they tend to forget as they grow up. That’s why it’s important to teach them the power of visualization while they are young enough to imagine spontaneously.

If you teach them that skill early, they become established in it and confident of their ability to make their wishes come true years before the world tries to talk them out of the importance of imagining. Having experience with the creative power of their mind through visualization, they will be resilient to influences that tell them imagining is frivolous.

If you aren’t confident of your own ability to explain the concept of Law of Attraction and to guide your child through the steps of visualizing, get a good children’s book on the subject and give it to your child. Review it yourself first, so you can answer basic questions as your child works through the process.

Don’t think you have to be an expert with all the answers before you can share what you know about visualization with your little one. You can learn together, mastering the fine points and sharing your successes. Because of your child’s natural ability to imagine, you may very well find that much of the time your child is teaching you.

The important thing is to make a start, to make a commitment to convey this most important knowledge that empowers your child to create her life and reality through her own conscious choice. It is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child, and it will bless her life forever.
