Embracing | Allow Your Child to be Free

20120405-082719.jpg

The children desire freedom! And every particle of their being from their Source says, “You are free. You are so free, that every thought you offer, the entire Universe jumps to respond to it.” And so, to take that kind of knowledge and try to confine it in any way, defies the Laws of the Universe.

You must allow your children to be free, because the entire Universe is set up to accommodate that. And anything you do to the contrary will only bring you regret. You cannot contain those that cannot be contained. It defies Law.

One definition of “heal” in the dictionary is “To become whole and sound; return to health.” What a gift we can give our children if we can just allow them to maintain their wholeness in the first place, allow their spirits to take their own form without all the constraints that traditional parenting and schooling place upon a human being.

To be whole, to be sound, balanced, joyful, curious…these are the things I wish for my children. The focus on academic topics and grades seem so irrelevant when contrasted to the really important tools for this life’s journey.

I tried to teach my child with books.
He gave me only puzzled looks.
I tried to teach my child with words –
They often passed him by unheard.
Despairingly I turned aside, “How shall I teach this child?” I cried.
Into my hand he put the KEY.
“COME,” he said, “AND PLAY WITH ME.”

*Knowing Your Desires Helps Manifest Them*

(a self-portrait/wish-list type of thing)

I am wanting excitement.

Not even in the win the lottery / world travel / adventurous / Chippendales at Disney World sorta way…

Just an internal alivement of everything being thrilling. That’s all 🙂 just excitement within all that I do, see, hear, feel, experience. Shouldn’t be too hard to obtain!

Appreciation rampage!! I love being excited about so many things ~ my sweet family, home life, projects, ideas, creating, connecting, seeing, doing, accomplishing, laughing, loving, relaxing, living & having fun.

It really is all good – if I say it is.

When I look for the best in everything, the positive return finds me. When I look for fun, enjoyment shows up. And when I set my intentions for love, the friend to arrive is…

*Bliss*

*Knowing Your Desires Helps Manifest Them*

I am wanting… what I always want, the same old damn things –

{be healthy}
{being}
{birthday bliss}
{calm parenting}
{continuation}
{energy}
{flexibility}
{holiday cheer}
{improvement}
{light heartedness}
{me}
{nothing}
{peace}
{quiet}
{refreshment}
{routine}

STILL working on them, every day.  I temporarily catch hold of one, enjoy it & lovingly watch it slip away… the chase begins again.  My ambitions take turns capturing my attention… keeping me busy all day.

Lots of fun.  Lots of Love.

And, you know it,

Lots of  *Bliss*

Goddess Mama Mantra

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.

The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;

For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

– Khalil Gibran, from The Prophet

Whatcha Wanting {flexibility}

*Knowing Your Desires Helps Manifest Them*

(a self-portrait / wish-list type of thing)

I am wanting flexibility. In my back. As soon as possible. I am wanting to stretch and stretch and move and release and feel a flow of energy that is pain-free.

I am wanting this flexibility because I love having flexibility in my life and schedule and mindset ~ so it just makes sense to have it in my body as well. Because when our body, our mind and our spirit come together as one, it is truly a physical experience of…

Good thoughts to think:

I know that Life always supports me.

I trust the process of life. All I need is always taking care of. I am safe.

I release the past. I am free to move forward with love in my heart.

I love and approve of myself. Life supports and loves me.
