HundrED shortlisted this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
Our subconscious programing is pretty well formed before the age of 7 and our way of being stems from the perception of those early years. Children take in messages either literal or perceived and if painful, they then see the world this way. As they grow up they relate to the world based on these painful experiences. What Magical U does is to help children release these negative experiences.
How does your innovation work in practice?
Magical U addresses holistic education by creating a safe time and place where kids can share their emotions. The online course gives parents, teachers, and professionals a tool kit to understand the interconnection of feelings and events at the same time it gives the opportunity to heal and choose how to feel.
We see and remember in pictures, emotions become attached to those pictures and many of those pictures are then remembered subconsciously as traumas.
Playing Magical U allow kids to understand their feeling and empower them to choose how to feel. They can now choose what to do with this feeling, release it and replace it with how they prefer to feel. A Magical U game takes only 20 minutes and changes the emotion of the child instantly.
Magical U is based on several different tried and tested modalities. We combine NLP, Meridien Therapy, Visualization, EFT, and more, taking the best of each and creating a unique game that is powerful, effective, simple, easy, and fun.
How has it been spreading?
Currently we are working with self-reported change that is part of the Magical U process. We have worked with hundreds of children, individually and in group, ages 2 - 16. Individual responses vary from very dramatic positive change in the child's feelings and behaviour to smaller changes, with 95% of children experiencing feeling better, more relaxed, open and happy.
To date we have trained over 250 Magical U Practitioners in several countries around the world. This includes teachers, counsellors, psychologists, kindergarten owners and teachers, Health Care Professionals, Medical Doctors as well as business owners and parents.
If I want to try it, what should I do?
