Working On Ourselves So We Become Better Parents

Working On Ourselves So We Become Better Parents

When I was thinking about what message I want to share with you today it was clear there's a huge focus on needing to release, go inward and expand beyond all the timelines at play, taking place collectively and individually. 

As the quickening continues creating an incredible amount of swirling unstable energy many of us can feel the energy of excitement or uneasiness in the air. (It all depends on what you are tapping into and your viewpoint.) 

A true metamorphosis is an individual's journey and I feel many of us are on this journey right now individually but also collectively. I myself have been through a crazy rollercoaster of releasing the past few years, from processing loved ones behaviors, being present through the final years of a loved ones journey, being surrounded by the very young and the very old, and by going through my own very real health scare, I have witnessed multiple timelines and experiences. 

When we work on our inner selves and our own personal growth our outer circumstances begin to change. Chaos can often ensue as you're stirring up stuck beliefs, stuck energy, old baggage and negativity. We are watching this play out on the world stage right now. 

There are four areas I want to draw your attention to as we all go through the next few years of transformation.

What kind of a parent do you want to be?

Guest post from Christina Fletcher

A child sees an ornament or beautiful item at a store, and in her own curiosity and wonder reaches up to touch it, to feel it, to know it.

As a parent, we see it from the other angle… will the ornament break, will the store person get stressed, will our child do something wrong… will we “get into trouble” or even just embarrassed?

The mirage of thought traffic that goes through our heads at that moment is almost bottlenecked, often resulting in a snapping remark of “Don’t Touch” or grabbing a child before fleeing out the door.

We then feel guilty or awkward, knowing within that we might have repressed our child’s own sense of curiosity.

As parents, we often forget that we are also still people as well. We carry with us baggage from our own childhood, from beliefs of how we should act, how our children should act and often we don’t pack light. From the moment we sit with our children in our arms for the first time, we can feel pulled in all directions, scrambling to uncover what we really think and feel: Who are we each in this role of a parent, what is important to us, what do we want our children to know for sure?

The Five Commandments That Wake Me Up Each Day By Dr. Shefali

Recently Dr. Shefali shared The Five Commandments That Wake Me Up Each Day in her newsletter. With permission, we are sharing it here with you. Yes, it's that good! Enjoy!! 

Dearest Conscious Parents and Friends!

If there was one question I contemplate on a daily basis, it would be this:

What is the true purpose of our existence?

I believe that if we are not fulfilling our purpose as sentient beings then we are foregoing the most valuable opportunity of being birthed in this form.

Sure, fancy dinners and jazz festivals are super fun! So are travels and fast cars.

But isn’t life more than this?

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.

Children Learn By Example

As parents sometimes we forget how much our children are learning from watching us.

They are little sponges watching our every move and expression.

They feel the energy that we vibrate each and every second.

They hear and mimic the words we say.

So be sure to check in with yourself !

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.

Demonstrating to your children how to be in the present moment.

Demonstrating to your children how to be in the present moment.

A lot of children have the ability to stay in the moment, but if you have a child that has a hard time focusing and being present here are some tips.

  • Fully listen when you are in the middle of a conversation with your child. Turn off or remove distractions. Keep eye contact while talking with someone, especially your children. Show the ability to be able to listen without interrupting with an immediate response.

Identity - Growing Up With Labels

IdentityDefinition on
The Sense of Self, Providing Sameness and Continuity In Personality

We've all seen the studies and heard the horrible stories, the ones where someone's life long career suddenly ends and within a few days they've dropped dead or committed suicide.

I don't bring this up to have a somber conversation. I tell you this to have a discussion and shed some light on a topic I don't feel receives enough attention.

The way we humans are wrapped up in our identities. The multiple roles we play as humans in a life time.

These roles are important and help shape our outer form, but when we tie everything we are into these roles and they suddenly change, the walls can come crashing down. Sometimes the change is planned and sometimes it's unexpected.

Let me give you an example. Jerry lives next door, he's been a logger for 25 years. Due to change in supply and demand for wood Jerry no longer can rely on his profession to pay the bills. He feels like it is the end of the world. He's a master at what he does. He's put his blood, sweat and tears into his profession. Over time it has became his identity. Everyone around his little town knows him and how he's won the local lumberjack contest several years in a row.

Life is precious and can be gone in an instant. Do not waste a minute of it.

Guest post by Erin Taylor, author of 

Yes, you read that right. I was hit by a drunk driver last night. Thank God I walked away without a scratch, but needless to say, it was pretty scary. As you know well by now, I tend to write through my experiences in order to process them, so this will likely be a long but chocked-full post. Please read on if you will….

I was on my way to a school to meet my friend and colleague Sue DeCaro so that we could present part one of our Conscious Parenting series when the accident happened. I was in rush hour traffic on a very busy road. I was probably the 20th car stopped at a red light when out of nowhere, a car slammed into the back of my car. I called Sue right away to ask her to come pick me up where we were so that she could bring me to the workshop (because yes, I truly am that committed to the work that I do!). She immediately turned around to come to me.

As Conscious Parents, We Must Accept The As-Is Of A Given Situation

Guest Post By Erin Taylor Author of,  

Leaving the grocery store this morning, I noticed a mom holding the hands of her two young children as she waited to cross the parking lot to get to her car. With the amount of information one can glean from a very short observation of another, it appeared that the mom seemed relaxed and peaceful, as did her two children.

As I reflected on this woman's demeanor, it got me to thinking about how I used to feel as mom of very young ones, and I believe that more often than not, I looked anything like this mom today; for I remember very often feeling stressed and unhappy, with a furrowed brow and all. I am certain that people who saw me must have wondered why I looked so tortured and miserable. This was unsettling to me, especially as a mom who had suffered the death of her first-born daughter. How can parenting be so difficult and stressful? Why is it so hard? And I felt guilty for not enjoying it more than I did, especially given my life experience.

Do your children talk about seeing angels or spirits?

Children are sometimes very intune and open to other realms. They often see their guardian angels or other spirits nearby. It is important to listen to them when they express an interest to talk about these topics with an adult. Children that are scolded or dismissed with what they are trying to express about what they see or feel may shut down if they feel no one is listening. By creating an open dialogue and listening you are setting the foundation of trust and allowing your child to be able to talk with you about other important topics as they grow older.

If your child has an imaginary friend or speaks about an angel, ask them what their friend looks like, sounds like or feels like? What does their angel say to them? Are they comforted or afraid of their friend?

"Children are great at opening our minds to possibilities we never knew existed."

How do you feel about them talking with their guardian angels? Are you open minded, close minded, or conditioned by your beliefs? There are documented cases all over the world of human beings being able to communicate with their guardian angels. There are many documented cases where an angel intervened in a sticky situation. We personally believe we all have guardian angels, guides and connections from beyond the 3rd dimension. We just need to ask for their assistance.

Some of the most common known angels and ascended masters to work with children are:
*Archangel Gabriel *Mother Mary *Diana *Archangel Michael *Archangel Metatron
*Damara *Jesus
*Kuan Yin and *Saint Francis

Doreen Virtue has an amazing informative book that lists in details Archangels and Ascended Masters and exactly what they can assist you with.  Remember they are here to assist us on our earthly journeys. We just need to ask for their help.

Children are great at opening our minds to possibilities we never knew existed. We encourage you to keep an open mind during your parenting process. You never know what vital life lesson your child will bestow upon you.
