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?

“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.
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.
