The promotion of psychic development in children significantly contributes to their mental and emotional health, fostering a life rich in self-awareness and self-love. The Veronica Moya method is an innovative approach that combines meditation and intuition to empower children from a young age, helping them cope with the challenges and stresses of life. 

The practice of mindfulness and meditation proves instrumental in bolstering mental health, guiding children to handle stress and reduce anxiety effectively. By focusing on the present moment, adopting these practices nurtures emotional resilience and strengthens the bond with one’s inner world, thereby cultivating a promising future abundant with purpose and well-being. In doing so, they also improve mental health for a more balanced life. 

The Veronica Moya Method 

The Veronica Moya method is based on the fundamental philosophy of enabling and motivating children to trust their inner voice, recognize their genuine talents, and achieve their utmost potential through meditation and mindfulness practices. This method is especially beneficial for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), as it teaches them to find the wisdom within to manage challenging emotions. 

The Veronica Moya method includes: 

  • Games that stimulate the mind 
  • Relaxation exercises 
  • Meditation  
  • Psychic development exercises. 

All of these are designed to hone their intuitive abilities, which can be a wonderful gift for children. 

Benefits of Psychic Development 

Encouraging psychic development in children brings about numerous benefits such as: 

  • Amplified imagination 
  • Intensified intuition 
  • Improved empathy 
  • A deeper understanding of their surroundings 

This, in turn, can contribute to the development of confidence and self-belief, helping them manage negative emotions. 

Moreover, psychic development can result in increased self-awareness, self-love, and self-reliance, which can encourage emotional fortitude and mental well-being. Research has shown that two children scored in the moderate range for depression on the RCADS scale, suggesting that fostering psychic development can help them become emotionally resilient and better equipped to handle life’s challenges. 

Mindfulness and Meditation for Psychic Development

Mindfulness and meditation act as fundamental instruments for psychic development, facilitating children’s connection with their authentic selves while offering guidance from their innate wisdom. Research has demonstrated that higher levels of mindfulness are associated with: 

  • Decreased levels of stress, anxiety, depression, and negative affect in children during the COVID-19 pandemic 
  • Even brief mindfulness practice enables children to control their anxiety and boost concentration 
  • Fostering potential enhancement in academic performance and overall well-being 

Various techniques can be employed to facilitate everyday awareness, such as deep breathing, body scans, and guided imagery. These practices can help children become more aware of their thoughts and emotions and subsequently make informed decisions regarding their behaviors. 

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy 

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a form of psychotherapy that integrates cognitive therapy and mindfulness practices. Research has shown its effectiveness in reducing anxiety and enhancing attention in children, which can contribute to their psychological development. 

In a study conducted with fourth through sixth graders, mindfulness training revealed the following benefits after 8 weeks: 

  • Decrease in anxiety 
  • Improvement in attention 
  • Greater emotional stability 
  • Better ability to cope with daily difficulties 
  • Improved decision-making skills 

Techniques for Practicing Mindfulness 

Deep breathing, body scans, and guided imagery are valuable techniques for cultivating mindfulness in children. Deep breathing can reduce stress levels, increase concentration, improve recollection, promote self-awareness, and cultivate a sense of serenity. A body scan involves focusing on each part of the body in turn and observing any sensations or feelings that may arise. 

Guided imagery, on the other hand, involves using the imagination to create a tranquil mental image, such as a beach or a forest, and concentrating on the specifics of the image to relax and decrease stress. By incorporating these techniques into their daily routines, children can develop their psychic abilities and foster a deep connection to their inner selves. 


Supporting Intuitive Growth in Children

Promoting intuitive growth in children is vital to their mental and emotional health. Providing a secure environment for children to explore and express their intuition leads to self-confidence and a robust sense of self. Parents and educators can foster an environment for children to explore and express their intuition by modeling intuitive living, demonstrating active listening, and acting with their hearts. 

To further support intuitive growth, parents and educators should encourage self-expression and provide free, unstructured time for children to explore their inner world. These strategies can help children develop a deep connection with their intuition and psychic abilities, empowering them to face life’s challenges with confidence. 

Encouraging Self-Expression 

Art, storytelling, music, and similar creative outlets serve as potent mediums for older children to intensify their bond with their intuition and psychic abilities. Parents and educators can facilitate self-expression by providing opportunities for children to engage in artistic, narrative, and musical activities. 

By encouraging self-expression, children can develop a stronger relationship with their intuition and psychic abilities. This, in turn, can lead to improved problem-solving skills, decision-making abilities, and a greater understanding of different perspectives, all of which are important aspects of intuitive development. 

Providing Free Unstructured Time 

Permitting children to engage in unstructured playtime, free from technological constraints or organized activities, fosters creativity and intuitive growth. Free unstructured time provides children with the opportunity to explore their imagination and the simple pleasures of life, fostering an environment where their intuition can thrive and they can develop a purposeful life. 

Parents can promote unstructured time by encouraging independent play, providing age-appropriate toys for open-ended play, and planning unstructured playdates and outdoor activities. By finding a balance between screen time and unstructured play, parents can ensure that children have enough time to develop their creativity and intuition. 

Addressing Challenges and Misconceptions 

Children might encounter several obstacles while developing their psychic abilities, including overwhelming sensations due to increased sensitivity or skepticism and disbelief from others. To help children cope with these challenges, parents and educators must tackle them by understanding the spiritual world, establishing a safe exploration environment, and employing cognitive restructuring and mindfulness techniques rooted in cognitive sciences. 

Common misconceptions about psychic development in children include the belief that only ‘gifted’ individuals can develop psychic abilities or that psychic abilities are not real. By educating and providing accurate information about psychic abilities, parents and educators can debunk these misconceptions and foster an informed and open-minded perspective on psychic development in children.

Incorporating psychic development into school curriculums can provide children with the tools they need to navigate their emotional and mental landscapes, fostering a generation of self-aware and empowered individuals. Advancing spiritual and moral growth, improving attention and concentration, developing mindfulness and self-awareness, and promoting holistic development are just a few of the advantages of including psychic development in educational programs. 

Incorporating psychic development into school curriculums guarantees that children are provided with the essential support and guidance for developing their intuition and psychic abilities. This can lead to improved academic performance, better mental health, and overall well-being, setting the stage for a brighter future for our children and the world as a whole. 


In conclusion, unlocking psychic development in children through mindfulness and meditation can lead to a generation of emotionally resilient, self-aware, and empowered individuals. By understanding the importance of psychic development, embracing the Veronica Moya method, and incorporating psychic development into school curriculums, we can create a brighter future for our children and the world.
