What is Goulding SleepTalk®? Jen Richards, Matrix ReJeneration
Imagine if you knew the secret to programming into your child the belief that no matter what happens in life, they are smart enough, funny enough, strong enough, good enough, everything enough to conquer any challenge that comes their way, and that they can live in the spectacular heights of their true potential.
What would you do to know that secret?
What would it mean to the health and wealth of your child to give them the gifts of resilience, persistence, confidence, happiness and the belief that no matter what, they are unconditionally loved? Imagine what this would do to their actions and the results they achieve in life. Just take a moment to ponder this.
It seems miraculous, doesn’t it?!
There is, however, a tool to give a child these gifts, a tool so easy and simple to use it seems a shame that every parent doesn’t know it.
That tool is called Goulding SleepTalk®.
Goulding SleepTalk® is a two-minute strategy parents use with children under the age of 12. It’s an auto-suggestion technique that’s used to speak with the child’s subconscious mind while they sleep. All our beliefs are stored in our subconscious mind, and it’s from these beliefs that we act for the rest of our lives. We will all achieve in life, without a doubt, according to the self-image of who we believe ourselves to be.
In the foundational years of a child’s development, especially between the ages of 0 to five, a child’s logical, conscious brain is still developing. There is no ability to rationalise or think systematically. Their minds are like blank computer hard drives, downloading information from their environment and storing their beliefs and perceptions as truths, regardless of whether they are or aren’t. The hard drive where these beliefs are stored is the subconscious mind.
For example, when children hear phrases such as “When will you learn to think”, “You’re so naughty”, “Shut up”, “How could you be so stupid?” even if said in jest or even if it’s a slip of the tongue, their perception of these phrases will be recorded as truth by the subconscious mind. These perceptions can lead to beliefs of “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not loveable”. Once a belief is made, behaviours and actions of the child will stem from such beliefs. These beliefs can be at the root causes of tantrums, behavioural issues, bed wetting, chronic illness, sibling rivalry, asthma, allergies, anxiety, night terrors and many, many more issues.
At around the age of seven, our conscious minds start to become concrete and we can logically think. We will think, however, according to our beliefs and self-image, which have already almost fully been created.
Maybe you can you think of some childhood events that have formed your own belief systems. Things that were said to you, a run-in with another child/adult, the divorce of parents, a movie you watched. How have these events shaped your life?
What’s vitally important to the future success of children, to their ability to prosper and cope with challenging situations, is to fertilise their minds with a strong dose of love, confidence and positivity from as early an age as possible. To fill their mind’s “hard drive” up with empowering beliefs.
The Goulding SleepTalk® technique is the tool to do this. It works directly with the subconscious mind and allows positive beliefs to become the dominant conviction from which a child will act on a daily basis. With the beliefs of love and confidence, just imagine how this would improve your child’s anxiety, frustrations, persistence, resilience and happiness.
Only treating the external behaviours of a child is not the solution that will lead to the long-lasting health of children. It’s the consistent tending to the gardens of their minds that will make the greatest difference.
In the words of my teacher, Joane Goulding, “Children are our future and we must realise this with a sense of urgency; if we are to care for their future, we need to care for them now.”
