A Missing Key to harnessing The Power to Create Your Reality

“You have the power to create your own reality” is a phrase I have heard often…and often because I grew up with people who were oppressed by very real things in life, such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, POVERTY, mental illness, neglect….I have often rejected this idea. It felt too similar to the victim blaming […]

Real Love is Messy sometimes

It was messy….

Although the afternoon began well, with my daughter giving me the sweetest Valentine’s card ever…melting and opening my heart…

a few very small conventional candies later (that I allowed from the bag of way too much sugar brought home), both of my children were exhibiting the very real emotional/behavioral consequences of processed […]

Who is parenting your child?

the king :)

The Bigger Picture: Keeping our Children Close

I am really enjoying my re-read of Gordon Neufeld and Gabor Mate’s book, Hold Onto Your Kids. In this book, they describe how children’s excessive attachment to peers sabotages their development.

The Boss of Me!: (Re)Claiming Authentic Power

Today, I offered Maya a bite of my sandwich so she could try the sauce. She made a face that looked like ‘I don’t want to,’ but she didn’t say anything, so I said, “Oh you don’t have to.” She laughed and said with confidence, “I know I don’t have to take a bite if […]

Getting Ready for Baby Three: the unexpected sweetness of change

My journey thus far with my children has been the greatest gift in my life; a daily, heavenly communing with bright souls I love so much. I am very satisfied with my two children. Which is partly why we took so long to commit to having a third child. And we weren’t the […]

Redefining Santa for a New Generation

You better watch out, you better not cry,

You better not pout, I’m telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town!
