10 Resources To Support You Along Your Parenting Path.

Parenting is not always easy. It comes with triumphs and tribulations. We wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. We were born to be parents. It definitely wasn't always easy, even as our children get older it's not always easy. Once a parent, always a parent. Your roles shift and change as your children grow up into adults, you may still want to take their pain away, protect them from poor choices and guide them, but there comes a time when you have to step back and let them navigate their own path.

Inquiring minds want to know what Annie Burnside has been up to.

We asked Annie for an update on what she's been up to and this was her reply.

"Beyond working on my second book, I have become a contributor to a brand new company that launched October 6th called "30SecondMom." It offers 30 second written and video tips from a group of international mom contributors for moms on their mobile phones. U.S. Cellular is our first large sponsor. It's very exciting, and I am honored to be a part of it to share conscious parenting in such a progressive format." Annie Burnside

Interview With Annie Burnside M.ED Author Of Soul To Soul Parenting.

We recently had the privilege of interviewing Annie Burnside, M.ED author of Soul To Soul Parenting. Enjoy!

1. What is the title of your book? Tell us a bit about it.
Soul to Soul Parenting: A Guide to Raising a Spiritually Conscious Family provides a framework for parents who desire to infuse greater spiritual awareness into everyday life within their own family. It offers 22 methods and 15 universal, life-affirming themes to get started, including many tools—such as books, music, movies, and activities.

2. Tell us a little about your background.  
Always a reflective child, I grew up in Norfolk, Virginia, but have lived in the Chicago-area for the past eighteen years. I graduated from DePauw University in Indiana and received my Masters in Education from DePaul University. I am a former elementary school teacher who took ten years off to raise my three children, now ages 14, 12 and 10. I re-entered the workforce as a professional soul nurturer—one who helps others awaken to their own truth in all aspects of life by providing the tools and encouragement to look more closely at their inner world.

3. You call yourself a soul nurturer; can you explain that title? 
Officially, I have been a soul nurturer for over five years. I created it as a career as soul nurturing has always been the most natural aspect of who I am. A soul nurturer helps others awaken to their own truth in all aspects of life by providing the tools and encouragement to look more closely at their inner world. She assists others in viewing their life from an expanded perspective by helping them to remember their divine, creative, intuitive, eternal nature and how to integrate this knowing into their life choices. A soul nurturer's primary role is to inspire others to listen to the voice of their own soul so that direct divine connection can become fully accessible within daily reality.

4. Is this your first book? Yes!

5. What led you to write Soul to Soul Parenting? 
Spiritual development/personal growth has been my greatest passion since I was nineteen. As it has brought such joy , purpose, gratitude and liberation to be truly comfortable within my own skin, I desired to take my children with me on the journey. I began to break down my spiritual insights and teachings into digestible bites for my own children, and conscious parenting became the most important aspect of what we offered them. Other parents noticed and started asking for guidance so I began speaking on the topic locally. Soon it became apparent that there was a book inside of me ready to emerge.

6. What was the most challenging part of writing the book?  
The most challenging part of the entire process was finding an agent and then the publisher. Through referrals I found an agent, and he found my publisher. It took several months for both. I trusted the process and through many rejections and rewrites uncovered much about myself that I will always cherish. The whole process has been very empowering.

7.  For you Annie, what is the difference between soul to soul parenting and traditional parenting?
I feel that soul to soul parenting seeks to move beyond simply the physical realm to understand the child from an energetic (soul) perspective, too. The current human suit is viewed as only one aspect of the child’s totality as an eternal, infinite spiritual being on one leg of his/her journey. From this widened vantage point, everything is different—there is a core belief that there is so much more to the child and all of life than what meets the eye, and the parent becomes willing to allow  that larger perspective in regards to life choices, priorities, thoughts, words and deeds. In other words, in soul to soul relationships, one feels for the underlying texture of all that occurs rather than simply the rational, socially acceptable aspect of it.

8. Why do you think conscious or soul to soul parenting is on the rise now? 
I think conscious parenting is on the rise because more and more parents themselves are becoming self-aware and honoring their authenticity. Due to the joy, freedom and empowerment derived from such interior knowing, parents desire, above all else for their children, self-realization and comfortability within their own skin. There is a growing belief in the world today that enlightenment is very possible for all who deeply desire it. Many parents are seeing that the family unit offers a magnificent opportunity for personal growth in both the parent and the child, simultaneously. We are wonderfully clear mirrors for one another, and parents are beginning to utilize family relationships as the gift that they truly are as we   move into wholeness. Parents desire a safe place for children to work through challenges and release negative emotions as they occur rather than stuff down, deny or save for later creating a tremendous amount of unnecessary baggage and psychic debris. Instead there is a growing shift to help children live true as soon as possible so that children can get on with what they came here to offer the world in their own special way. Essentially, as parents become more conscious, they cannot help but desire that for their children. The grandest hope for their children is not that they fill their lives with endless accomplishments that require a total focus on doing, but rather that they come to know themselves experientially as a unique part of the divine whole through an increasing number of moments of pure being—illumination.

9. What are you reading right now
I am reading The Soul’s Journey: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born by Robert Schwartz, a fantastic book about the soul agenda 
of which we are often not consciously aware of until we choose to dig a little deeper through self-exploration and inner work. This book, like so many others in the metaphysical field, dramatically shifts the way we perceive ourselves, our children, and the world at large opening us to new possibilities. I have been reading parts of it aloud excitedly to my family, and my fourteen year-old daughter will 
be reading it next.

Thank you Annie for sharing an insight into who you are and your inspirational new book with us!

The Universe's Birthday Cake By Annie Burnside M.ED

While we were reading Annie's new book Soul To Soul Parenting . One of our favorite chapters among many was Oneness and Individuation.

In this chapter Annie shares this beautiful analogy:

"This analogy was taught to me by my spiritual mentors and is a great way to explain to children, in simple terms, the far-reaching concept of oneness. First, we have our children imagine the biggest, grandest birthday cake ever. We call it the Universe's Birthday Cake. On this cake, there are trillions of beautiful candles aglow with individual flames. The individual flames are all made of the same fire and come from the same source. Each flame represents an individual soul and the whole cake represents God. You see different aspects of the cake depending on your point of view. When you look at the cake from close up, you recognize all of its individual parts, but when you look at the birthday cake as a whole from a slightly different perspective, you can see the one powerful light that emanates from the cake. This all encompassing glow, which is the one true light shining so brightly from the cake, is God; and we, as the individual flames, are each as essential, unique part of the overall glow, that is the creator." ~ Annie Burnside, M.ED
