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 did you feel most like yourself today?
A simple question to ask… and an empowering discussion to have with your children when they first get home from school.
Between dealing with their peers and trying to keep up with the demands of a busy, rush around day, a child can often feel caught up in the action of it all.
When we simply ask them to look back and see how they felt about themselves, especially with the positive focus, then we are laying breadcrumbs for them to tune in to their truest version of themselves.
You may find they felt the most connected during a game, or when they did well on a quiz. It may be that they felt most like themselves during a quiet moment in the library when no one seemed to notice them.
But noticing that moment will help turn on a light to their inner awareness, helping them learn how to be authentic, how to be present and how to be the best version of themselves they can be.
And then… invite them to ask you the same question.
When did you feel most like yourself today?

“We do not remember days, we remember moments.” – Cesare Pavese #moments #remember #wisdom #inspire #quote #inspirational
We plan, worry, organize and visualize the ultimate outcomes with grand design. Yet, when we look back we realize that it is only the moments, the spontaneous seconds of connection, cuddles and laughter that we remember best. We remember the feeling of the moment, the sense of awareness and presence. We rarely remember the full day or the circumstance leading up to the beautiful memory.
Therefore, stress less and be more. For memories are being created within every moment of every day and your children will remember the subtlest of moments which took no planning at all. They are simply created by your presence, your smile and your love.

“One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.” – William Feather

What would life look like if you couldn’t “fail”?

We can list our to-dos, we can see goals and push for the next achievement. We can pile on pressure and feel like each new task is a momentous undertaking. Yet, with a simple shift in perspective, the mountain of work becomes an adventure and the next achievement becomes simply another stepping stone on the great ride of life.

How we see what we do each day, matters. Our perception, our focus and our attitude creates the difference between struggle and opportunity.
Life is an adventure, with the ability to choose your own outlook. When you wake up each day ready to embrace the opportunities that lie ahead of you, you’ll find that doors open differently than when it is simply about hard work.
Embark on the adventure, and you may just find eagerness, curiosity and fulfillment ahead.
