The beginning of the book explains how to look through the eyes of children and realize your own limiting beliefs. Vicki talks about our foundation and that as children we didn’t come with blueprints, so our parents built our foundation with the best of their abilities. She explains that we can mend the cracks in our foundations by using her seven principles. Additionally, we can make sure our children foundations are built strong with those same principles.
The second part of the book is all about the seven principles and real life people who needed to use the principles. The seven principles are: love yourself, feel your feelings, quiet the mind, tune in, remove toxic thoughts, speak your truth and plug in. Although they seem like common sense practices, she explains that we aren’t using them as much as we should be. Every chapter includes stories about people who weren’t using them and how she helped them overcome struggles with that specific principle.
The final part of the book is all about you and your children. She takes you through multiple ways (her toolbox) to incorporate these principles in your children and your lives. She challenges you to take a look at how you are behaving and change yourself for the better.
Overall, this book is a must read for anyone having, raising and/or working with children. Additionally, I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to rebuild their foundations and connect with to their inner child.
FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.
Naming ’7 essentials’ for being emotionally and spiritually healthy adults, Savini places a great emphasis on our responsibility to teach these essentials to the young in our lives by modelling not simply by telling. Which means we have to do the work, too! With carefully selected personal stories interwoven with her anecdotal research as a life-long learner and teacher, Savini opens the reader’s mind to the possibilities that lie within our reach. And she always brings it back to our children and students who are the real beneficiaries of a healthier planet.
Though not a parenting books by conventional means, I highly recommend this book as a MUST-READ for those of you navigating the sometimes tricky terrain of parenthood; it’s an engaging read that prods at important issues we may be accustomed to sweeping under the rug. The second half of the book, focusing on the 7 essentials, offers quick and practical exercises that will add to your experiences with these pages.
Grab this book for yourself, your siblings, new and seasoned parents and of course, your favourite school teachers. They will all benefit personally, and so will the children they influence, consciously or unconsciously.
I am both a parent as well as an educator, and I have worked with children in many different settings. I felt like Ignite the Light would be something that I would be able to relate to as well as be able to use as a tool when working with children. Upon finishing Ignite the Light I had a little bit of a mixed review. A part of me absolutely loved some of the beautiful passages in the book as well as Savini's life experiences she shares. While reading Ignite the Light, I found myself underlining many parts of the book that were so powerful and insightful when working with children.
Another part of me felt like there was a lot of repetition in the book amongst the different sections. I also felt the book didn't flow in a way that made the author's thoughts feel organized. Now, with that being said, I do feel like Vicki Savini offers a lot of valuable wisdom throughout her book that would benefit anyone who has the privilege of working with children.
