Hi Friends, When I created The Family Alchemists in 2018, I had a really big vision and mission of connecting people to the resources they need to grow. I have so many amazing professionals in the Conscious Parenting space as friends and was determined to help them...

How Recovery Principles Pave the Way to Conscious Parenting

Applying the 12 steps to my parenting helped me practice boundaries, communicate with integrity and ultimately BE loving and tolerant.

Conscious Communication Skills

In times of great social change, we look for the things we can control. We may not be able to predict the future for ourselves or our teens, but we can control how we communicate. The way we communicate reveals what we value and how we value it. I longed to connect...

How to Save a Marriage

So, you’re an empath married to a guy that treats you like a queen – most of the time. But those times he’s angry? You question if you’re more like your mother than you thought. You worry that his behavior is going to hurt your kids and that you’re being irresponsible...


When I have a chance to actually discuss the topic with clients, it is very simple to explain my view of spirituality, understand my clients’ perspective, and come to a common ground semantically (and often philosophically). I notice I regularly attract people who...

Helping Your Kids During Coronavirus Social Distancing

Dear Brave Ones: Of course, we’re scared. That means it’s the time to be gentle and compassionate with ourselves and others. Can you imagine how scared our kids are? Their routines have been disrupted and they miss their teachers and friends. They have less control...

Out of the race

From the moment we are born, we are part of a race we never wanted to be in, we are measured by milestones and compared endlessly with any peers we share our life with. We are numbers in charts and checkmarks in lists of accomplishments, in other words, we are what we...

Mindful Parenting Through the Everyday Stresses

In the fast paced world of parenting where decisions are made in between spilled cereal, constant questioning and smartphone apps, it is no wonder the word mindfulness is becoming as necessary in a parent’s vocabulary as the word nap-time. And yet, for many,...

What our children ask of us

Our children ask so little really. Listen to my discoveries and ideas. Look through my eyes to understand my world. Feel my love, joy, frustration, pain. Hold my hand, my heart and me close. Be careful with me and understand me. I may feel off sometimes, when the...

Elf on the shelf, Magic of well-behaved kids?

I was already familiar with conscious parenting when the Elf on the Shelf became popular a few years ago, I found out about it when my kids were toddlers and I heard stories about him moving every night and being a fun addition during Christmas time. I was excited to...

When our kids are little, they need us to be there for them to meet their basic needs, our days are filled with never-ending feedings and diaper changes, we are also lacking sleep and more often than not we barely have enough time to think about our own well-being. We check our to-do lists and are constantly focus on doing, doing, doing, we end up focusing on the urgent and often forget about the important, to just BE.

The most valuable gift you can ever give your kids is to slow down, stop for a moment and between those little daunting tasks, delight in your child’s presence, be present without an agenda, for just a moment let your child know I See You, I Hear You, You Matter. Out of all the things you could ever offer your child, there is one thing he is looking for from the moment he is born, he wants a connection with you. Above all else, connection is the way your child feels loved.

Offering the gift of your presence will set the child on a path where he knows he is worth loving, he will love himself and naturally, he will know how to love others. Hold your children tight tonight. Their pure light needs to be protected so it doesn’t diminish but on the contrary becomes brighter and brighter from the relationship with you. Cherish all the lessons your children came here to teach you, motherhood could be the catalyst for your evolution.
