“Where do fairy tales live?” Children have asked me this question many times. “They live in the same place where we all live. We have one common House, our Earth.” I answer ed and asked. “What do you think?”
I have heard many answers that have amazed me at the depth of understanding and continue to teach me the value of childhood . . . “Fairy tales live near us, we just need to listen carefully to hear them. I hear them, and they are very beautiful!” This answer from a 4-year-old boy. “Where do you listen to them?” I asked him. He answered by placing his hand on the heart. “It is here ” . . .
Those wonderful words continue to inspire me to create fairy tales for families and to communicate the role fairy tales in our life.
“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” ― Albert Einstein
“Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” ― C.S. Lewis
I want to share with you a selection from my book “Magic Fairy Tale for children & parents” >
We create our own happiness in our life by choosing what we feel . . . When we understand and consciously choose our best feelings, we create our own Emotional Happiness. It is the foundation of harmonious and happy life.
Feelings – Emotions – Thinking – Actions – Result*.
How can fairy tales support our best feeling and why do I create them?
Fairy tales give us an awareness of the possibilities. The breadth of these possibilities is created because in a fairy tale there is magic.
My Fairy tales help to develop a palette of our best feelings by interacting with nature to create the basis for our best emotions.
Fairytale heroes help teach our children to create and consciously choose their best feelings and emotions. My heroes model how better outcomes occur when positive feelings are chosen.
Fairy tales help to develop a pro-active position in life: I can always improve what has happened to me and I can always find a way out of my difficult situation.
Fairy tales develop a ‘master’s’ position promoting leadership qualities. All that I have in life is the result of my choice. I always have the right to choose and I can always choose to be happy.
Fairy tales show the strength and importance of moral qualities such as kindness, gratitude, generosity, love, the ability to create, believe in yourself and follow dreams. These are the qualities that your child needs for the foundation of a successful and happy personality.
With love Olga Verasen
