It’s often not what we say, but the feeling space, energy, and intention of what we’re thinking and feeling that our children pick on. That is why they seem to mimic us, read our minds and absorb our moods and focuses.
It’s also how they will pick up our beliefs and even habits and patterns from us.
Ever wonder why sometimes you “sound like your mother”? We too absorbed and adopted the intentions and vibration patterns of our childhood.
But, all it takes is a choice; a decision to create a change.
Are you believing what you wish to believe? Are you living what you wish to pass on to your child? Are you resonating with your ideal home FEELING space?
It’s alright for it to be a work in progress… for even in the trying for better, your child will pick up on the shift and know that you wish only the best for the entire family one feeling space, and vibration, at a time.
Change begins from within.
One of the greatest gifts we can have from our children is the ability to see the world through their eyes. When we shift to the perspective of a child, we can feel the freedom, wonder, magic and simplicity that they see and in doing so, we create a more beautiful life for ourselves, and for them.
It’s not about us! Our children are always on their own personal journeys and adventures, and however easy it is to think that they are trying to “drive us up a wall” or do things on “purpose”… they aren’t. They aren’t consciously creating frustration. Rather their exploring, their play, their perception, their invention, and their sense of limitless potential is their focus… and in that sense of freedom, sometimes we feel frustrated in our lack of control or focus. Go easy.
See the world from your child’s perspective and you’ll soon discover, their view of the world can be wondrous, and a little conversation, a little playful dialogue, can create a huge shift in co-creation together.
Christina Fletcher is a Spiritually Aware Parent Coach and Energy Healer who specializes in helping parents become heart centered and aligned to their highest vision of their parenting and of themselves. Through her background and training in religious and self development studies, as well as spirituality and conscious parenting, Christina helps parents dive past the “shoulds” created from their upbringing and society, and release beliefs that hold them back to create authentic, connected relationships with their children, and themselves. Using mindset techniques, practical spiritual tools such as simple meditation, the law of attraction and positive focus, as well as her training and gifts as an energy healer, Christina gives space for a mom or dad to drop into the feeling of satisfaction, alignment and relief, so they can tune in to what their children truly need and work from a centered perspective. She gives practical and spiritual advice on how to tune into a child’s perspective as well as concrete tools to pass on self awareness and mindful living to children as young as 3, so authenticity, emotional awareness, communication and connection can be the foundation for the whole family. Christina is a homeschooling mom of 2 daughters, (ages 16 and 15) and a 9 year old son. She is happily married to her husband Jeff. When their girls were born 10 months apart, Christina parented as she thought she “should”. Scheduled feeds, nights of pacing the floor with crying babies, and getting mad as they got older, she knows what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and in tears through those early years. It wasn’t until her girls were 3 and 4 that she decided her happiness mattered and that she wanted to have fun again. The change transformed everything, creating a powerful relationship with her children which is stronger than ever now that they are teens. When she was pregnant with her son, she became passionate about creating a spiritually aware pregnancy, and her connection with her son prior to his birth was crucial through some family tragedy taking place at that time. This later became the topic of her first book. Christina is passionate about helping parents create deep relationships with their children, from birth until fully grown. But she also knows that deep relationships with others can only be formed from a deep relationship with yourself, so through courses, coaching and her writing, she offers tools for the entire family so they can truly become self aware and present as everything they really are.
