Parenting from the Heart

‘Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you’

Kahlil Gibran

As mothers and fathers we only want the best for our children.

Parenting from the Heart


To ensure they are treated equally and fairly.

I still struggle to think rationally the moment they bring home a story of injustice.

Is it really possible to detach and lovingly let them find their way?

Or is natural to become the ferocious bear in the forest?

I may not have mastered becoming the observer as our children’s journey unfolds but I’ve definitely begun the decluttering of their ancestral baggage.

I love my inner child

Through my own self reflection and healing, I’ve cleared some of my stuff and the stuff of family before me.

Our children are naturally tied up with our tribal story and their struggles can often be an unhealed part of us as parents.

So what can we do when we feel at a loss at parenting and worried about our precious offspring.

Inner Child Healing is the best parenting tool anyone of us can gift to our children.

I mean our own Inner Child Healing

Clear the decks, journey within, ask …..

Where do I lack confidence?
How do I model anxiety?
Where am I angry?
How can I show resilience?
What were my experiences of …..
What’s mine to take back?
Where do/did I experience frustration?

The body carries story and memory, therefore that unprocessed part of our life can be energetically seeping through to them.

As we do the work and empty ourselves, we create space for them to flourish as unique individuals.

But let it begin with us ❤️

Learning to love ourselves deeply will empower us to respond to them without judgement and criticism.

Shifting from fear to trust, creating space for the loving resilient warriors within to emerge 🥰

Whatever the problem, the solution is love, begin with self 💕 love

Let’s learnt to live and guide our children so they learn to trust and believe in themselves.

To happy homes, happy hearts and peace of mind 🙏

All we can do is our best 🌹
Much love
