Young Child:

“The best thing I learned was stay calm and curious instead of fast and furious.”


“A thought is like a seed, it grows into a feeling that opens up inside you. Now you decide to let it go, or keep it … You always have a choice. It’s true for you and for me.”


“Understanding Mind + Consciousness + Thought is something that will stay with me forever and I will pass it on to others. I am so glad that I have learnt this valuable lesson at such an early stage in my life because now I will be able to apply to my life throughout my journey after high school.”


I have been a psychologist and educator for 40 years. What a joy it is to have these books, and the companion volumes for teachers, available to help kids of any age. Christa, Jane, and Kathy point children within to their greatest resource, their innate wisdom. Kids who use MGI will learn what it means to access their own wisdom, or guide inside, which will lead them to having ever more love and compassion in their lives. It will help them experience more deeply the joy of living! MGI is very user friendly, invites participatory learning, and utilizes stories and metaphors to illustrate their points. I loved MGI and think it can be helpful for kids of any age!

Excerpt from MGI Foreword:

“Trust me, having the Three Universal Principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness shared with your students, which is the purpose of My Guide Inside, is the most precious and life changing gift possible!

These Universal Principles will introduce your students to their true nature and the inside-out nature of experience. My Guide Inside points students to the ever-present internal guidance of wisdom. For the rest of their lives whenever they are faced with challenges and uncertainties these lessons will be PRICELESS!”
