The Happy Mother

I saw this quote earlier this morning on Facebook and it made me realize just how much my motherhood journey has pushed me to grow – but also how long it took me as a mother before I realised just how important a role my own happiness and wellbeing was to both my being a parent, as well as to the happiness and well being of my daughter. Being a happy mother over a perfect one was something that only came to me much, much later in the game…

There’s something about the way our kids know, without us having to say a word, when something’s going on with us – whether we’ve had a day from from hell, are holding back tears, or are so stretched and stressed that the smallest thing sets us off… regardless of how well we think we’re hiding it.

They don’t need our words to know. They can feel our energy.

And it influences the way they act and feel too. Don’t believe me?

Be Patient. Be Kind. Be Compassionate.

I want to chat about something that has been on my mind a lot this week, not so much a rant but more a sadness at how women treat each other online, let’s call it cyber-bullying, and particularly mothers.

Something I see happen almost daily is criticism, judgment, and downright bullying happen on the posts of women, and the trolling comes from other women (read moms). And to be honest, I’m appalled, it makes me really sad to see how so many women are so quick to critique the life of another.

This morning a saw a post of a woman who shared an image of her an her little family having arrived at their vacation destination- my first impression was how happy and excited they all looked despite having been on a plane for all those hours, with a tot, and probably jet lagged. The mom wrote about their flight with almost 2 year old and how well things went, but the car seat rental company had sent a faulty seat and they were hoping it wasn’t going to set the tone for their family vacay (she did mention that they had contacted the co and a new seat was being delivered to the airport). I empathized.

Flower Therapy for Kids

flower therapy for kids“…I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body.” ~ Eckart Tolle. 🌺

Hey Momma’s 🙋🏻If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know how much I love gentle, healing energies of Flower Therapy! 🌸If you’re new here 👋Flower Therapy is a form of energy healing done by bringing the unique colour and essence of a particular flowing into the space of the Chakra, or area of our body, that it vibrationally corresponds too. ✨Flower Therapy is a form of both active and silent meditation, from subconsciously selecting the flowers you want to work with, to placing them mindfully on your body and laying quietly while they work their magic! 🌈

Flower Therapy is an amazing holistic exercise that we can do with, and for, our littles; helping to release excessive energies that may be building up in their systems, grounding and connecting them, cleansing and restoring their natural balance (especially when they’ve been around too many electromagnetic frequencies) and energizing them with all those gorgeous high vibes! 💫Kids are naturally more dominant in their lower four chakras, especially from birth to 7 years, making them more in touch with their natural connection to the Earth, but is great for kids of all ages! 💚

So how do you go about doing this?

~ Allow your child to pick a flower for each Chakra (or the colours of the 🌈) , using white or purple for the crown (check previous flower Therapy posts for suggestions).

~ Let me spend as long as they need for this process, they will be attracted to the flower that they need (same applies for you momma!!)

~ Depending on the age of your little, you can have them lay the flowers on their body making a rainbow from their feet up to their head, or they can play with them as they sit quietly with them self.

~ If they are younger, ask them to make patterns or pictures with their flowers – what they create is not important, it’s the process of mindfully having the flowers in their personal space.

~ If they are older, ask them to lay down with the flowers in place, to close their eyes and imagine the rainbow lights from the flowers filling their body, starting with red and ending with their head.

~ When they are finished, they will know, ask them if they saw anything in their imagination, or felt any sensations in their body, if they had any emotions come up or memories while they were laying there. This is a subtle way of introducing them to being conscious of their thoughts, emotions, energies and physical body.

flower therapy for children ~ While your child is choosing their flowers, pay attention to the flowers, and colours, they reach for first! This will give you some insight into which areas, and chakras, need work.

Children are growing and learning (about themselves, others and their world), experiencing new things, overcoming challenges and disappointments, creating and pushing boundaries, loving and being loved, exploring independence but wanting security…. and all of these natural process’ can influence their energetic (and emotional) health. Giving them the tools to help them through these areas and challenges teaches them to;
~ Be conscious of them self, and others
~ Take time to care for them self and respect that others require the same
~ Be empowered and self-heal

Doing this activity with your little is a great way to spend QT with them, and get some beautiful, natural healing in at the same time 🙂 Questions? Pop them below.

Don’t teach your kids to anticipate disappointment.

holistic-parenting-wherehumrestsHey Guys! I know there are a few people who may completely disagree with this but…

Why the heck do we teach our kids to not expect good things happening to them, and instead teach them to not hold expectations for they will only end up disappointed!

I know I was taught this, maybe not by my parents but my teachers, friends, older adults I looked up to and society!! All this does is create a sense of fear within us, and we grow up focusing on the lack rather than what we do have!

If we want to manifest that which we truly desire, we have to truly BELIEVE that we will get it… but how can we believe this if we’re taught to believe the opposite as a child?

Just something to think about, Lovelies.
