Mr Rogers always manages to put it just right!
Isn’t this the truth? When we love someone and allow it to simply flow, unconditionally, without judgement, we create a magical connection between our hearts and them. There is nothing more simple or move divine than connection between hearts. <3 So, breathe deep, and allow the love to flow effortlessly, embracingly.
The world is large and chaotic and a child can often feel their dreams might be inadequate or insignificant. Whenever a child shares the smallest dream, quest or perception, tread softly. For when they hand us a stone, they see it as a jewel, and how we treasure their dreams is how they grow confident in their infinite possibilities. – Christina Fletcher
“The belief that children must be punished to learn better behaviors is illogical. Children learn to roll, crawl, walk, talk, read, and other complex behaviors without a need for punishment. Why, then, wouldn’t the same gentle guidance, support, and awareness of developmental capabilities that parents employ to help their little ones learn those complex skills also work to help them learn to pet the cat gently and draw on paper instead of walls?” LR Knost #children #inspire #wisdom #quote #inspiration #lrknost
Our children reflect us. Often our focus creates an energy that then fills our space, our home or our day. A stressful moment can be picked up by a child within an instant.
This doesn’t mean we look to blame ourselves for the chaos of the day. Rather, if our children are acting frantic, we can tune within before trying to “fix” them. Before, we start rushing and hurrying in every direction trying to figure out what’s wrong, we can go within, calm our inner selves, and in doing so, become the calm in the storm. – Christina Fletcher, Family Alchemist

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.
