When something painful happens it can feel like spiritual bypassing, or a negating away from depth of a situation when we say that through pain we grow.
Often, it can simply feel like a way to brush aside the pain or grief we need to go through.
But life will always be full of painful experiences or upsetting situations and on the other side of those experiences we will always have a deeper clarity of who we are, who we want to be and what we desire most.
Just as it can feel like bypassing to shift to the growing perspective, it can also fall into spiraling if we focus too much on the pain we are living through during the off times. We need to create a flow through painful experiences… because there will never be a life that doesn’t have some. Therefore, trust that the wrestling through them, will give new perspective and new growth. That by working through each challenging moment, you’ll learn more about yourself and others. That through tragic experience you expand your ability to love and feel and live. And that through all experience, growth and new perception will always follow.
With all of this, remember as well; You can feel the pain and the love at the same time. You can feel a range of emotions that will carry you through to the next step. You can breathe through this experience to give birth to the next that may very well be just around the corner.
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.
