The relationship with our children

All I had ever thought before entering motherhood was about to be shaken and stirred. It provoked a deep awakening within my own being.

I have come to know that we have the exact child(ren) we are meant to have. Their divine being called us into their spiritual path, just as we called them into ours. They are there to help us awaken our own inner child, to mirror back to us all our unmet needs and conditioned beliefs from our own childhood and ultimately to rise to our highest most authentic self.

The relationship with our children is also meant to trigger unresolved wounds and suppressed memories and feelings from our own childhood, so that we may integrate those fractured aspects of our being and become more whole. To parent our children well, we must begin to parent our internal child well first; otherwise we will end up repeating the exact same pattern and style of parenting that our parents demonstrated towards us.

Conscious parenting turns the traditional parenting paradigm upside down. Instead, it teaches us to see our children as our “spiritual teachers”. Through their mirroring of our projections, they invite us to raise ourselves and our inner child whose unmet needs are still within. They allow us to recognize where we have yet to grow before we can truly and consciously raise our own children.

When we choose to embrace the mindset that our children are our equals and our teachers - we honor their soul essence as separate from ours. In this way we liberate them, we empower them to use their voice, speak their truth, honor their thoughts, involve them in choices, listen to their feelings and teach them of their inherent worthiness.
