Building Self-Esteem And Confidence

We are honored to have one of our recent articles published on Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life.

Conscious Parenting Building Self-Esteem And Confidence

Key conscious parenting goals; qualities you want your children to have. High self-esteem, strong foundation, creative spirit, integrity, compassion, connection, respect for self, others and the environment. Instill a love for life. It is important to support your children’s endeavors no matter how creative they get. Remember they are children and their ideas will change many times. By encouraging them you are building their self-esteem and confidence. In turn feeding their mind, body, and soul. Be open to saying “yes” or at least hearing out their ideas. Encourage them to draw, speak their mind, ask questions, play musical instruments, try sports, sit quietly and read a book or play in the dirt. Every child is so unique and their sensitivity levels are vastly different. That’s why it is so vitally important to parent each child on their own individual level. It would not be wise to raise all your children the same way. They all have different needs and wants, it is up to you to be the conscious parent, allowing an organic conclusion to form and take place without you the parent having to be in constant control. It’s about allowing spiritual growth on this earthly playground.

Teaching Children How To Love Themselves. Help your children work through their feelings and teach them the importance of positive self-talk. Show them how to appreciate the little and the big things in life. Self-esteem is being developed throughout their life. By teaching them how to love and take care of themselves when they are little you are helping them to build a positive self-image, instill confidence and build your child’s inner strength.

Click Here To Read Entire Article. Please comment and share on the original article if our conscious parenting messages resonate with you. We'd love to write more for their parenting audience and need your support to show conscious parenting is an important topic. 

Together we can all support the inner light of the children and the parents choosing to walk a conscious parenting path.

Namaste, Carol and Stacy

The Laughing Witch by Andrew Newman

"To All Who Laugh" it says in the book, which means this book must be for everyone!
Because who doesn't love to laugh?

The visuals in this book radiate fun and happiness. Children will not only embrace what they are hearing but what they are seeing as well.

who lived here before:
I welcome your wisdom;
Your love I adore."

You believe everything on each page! Valuable simplistic kindness and priceless verbage!
To receive and to give back is such an important tool to use through all human's lifetime.

6 Ways To Include Intuition In Your Parenting

Our intuition is always giving us signs.” ~ Author Eileen Fisher

We wanted to share with you a few ways you can include intuition in your parenting.

1. Ask your child how a particular situation made them feel.

2. After a bad day at school, ask them to describe it to you so you can help them process their feelings.

3. Show your children how to listen, feel, see, and experience their connections.

Music Is An Expression Of The Soul

In today's societies, closed minded choices are consistently being made through-out our school systems and communities, where greed rules the outcome of what is on the artistic menu.

There are those that see no value in the arts. children who are exposed to the arts are able to express themselves beyond boundaries and confinements. When music is involved it expands their consciousness on so many levels. Anything can be enhanced with the involvement of music.

It awakens a vibration from within that helps them to connect with their raw organic feelings from past, present and future. It can portray an essence of who they are and what their needs may be through movement from dancing, audio from singing, alignment from vibration and contentment from stillness.

Open the floodgates and nourish your child's soul with the expression of music.

Homeopathic Remedies For Bug Bites and Stings

One thing we like to keep in our first aid kits are various homeopathic remedies so we are never caught off guard while camping, traveling or enjoying the outdoors.

"Homeopathic is a system of medicine who's principles are even older than Hippocrates. It seeks to cure in ordinance with natural laws of healing and uses medicines made from natural substances: animal, vegetable, and mineral." ~ Homeopathic Medicine At Home (We really recommend having this book on hand along with your remedies)

If Homeopathy is new to you we encourage you to learn more about it. Our two families have used it for years and years. We love the results, it works well for us and there's no side effects. Disclaimer we are not doctors, we advise you to follow your intuition and if you feel you need to check with your doctor then please do so. Follow the directions on the bottle.

Bug Bites - Carol's son Josh is a delicacy to mosquitoes. They love feasting on him. We have found through the years if he keeps Thuja on hand when he is out hiking or fire fighting if he needs to he can takes a few to alleviate the itch and discomfort from his bug bites and help keep the mosquitoes at bay.

Bee, Hornet and Wasp Stings - Apis, Calendula, Hypericum, Ledum & Cantharis.
Note: On bee, hornets and wasp stings: If victim is allergic to insect stings rush to nearest hospital emergency room. Meanwhile, give Apis in the highest potency you have (Homeopathic Medicine At Home)

Spider bits - Carbolicum acidum, Crotalus horridus, Echinacea, Lachesis and Oxalicum Acidum.
Note: On poisonous spiders apply an ice pack to the bite to slow the spread of poison and rush victim to nearest hospital emergency room. Meanwhile, give one of the remedies mentioned here. Once again this warning is from Homeopathic Medicine At Home.

If you use homeopathy in your home what are your favorite remedies?

Stacy Toten On Intentional Conscious Parenting

Our focused listening from within, can really tune in our sensitivities, bringing us a wealth of insight about ourselves and the world around us. Listening, I mean really listening to your child can provide valuable information about them as individuals. Some children have a hard time expressing themselves. If you raise them in an intentional conscious way you will sense this and be able to talk about and walk them through their issues and fears that may arise or that they may be trying to hide. As parents this would be a good time to read between the lines, trust your feelings and help them to vocalize their concerns. This is a choice we as humans have to listen quietly from within and act on our intuition.  We are all born with this so why not enhance this valuable tool so that our children can utilize it their whole lives. One way it can be described is as our inner guidance system. It comes completely intact when you are born, you just need to acknowledge and utilize it by listening, staying in touch with your feelings and intuition, trusting what's coming through you and knowing that your angels and guides are always with you.

The more you acknowledge and develop this tool it just becomes second nature to you.
