Parenting the Child You Didn't Expect While You Were Expecting: The Hero's Journey of Parenting Self-Guided Course
Welcome to the next part of your journey, where we will dive in deeper with tools that will help you to begin making shifts with what you may be noticing so far. All of the tools that I share are going to be shared separately however in real, everyday life implementation of them, they are meant to weave together and with practice, can create empowering changes within seconds.
Intro to Three Power Tools:
Mind and Body Connection
When one embarks on a Hero’s Journey like the one that we are on with our children, some interesting things happen - the warrior in us takes over and gives our thinking mind a lot of power, disconnects us from what we might be feeling in our body and pushes down any emotion. This all comes from a well-meaning place and might be necessary at first in order to carry on with the necessities of daily life, however, this all keeps us from connection to ourselves, our wisdom and all that our children are here to teach us.
The tools you are about to receive will help you take back your power, learn to listen to what your body is telling you and allow the release of emotion that has been waiting patiently to be felt. The warrior will get nervous about this and that is okay. It might make you feel vulnerable and that is okay. Be kind and loving with yourself. Go slowly if that feels good. Pause when necessary but also trust that this is all just a reclaiming process to take back the power and connection you’ve had all along, it’s just been kept buried like a treasure until you were ready. Since you are here, I can only assume that now is the perfect time.
While I describe each of these tools separately, in practical application, they all weave together, each one with it’s own purpose to help you to be more connected to what is actually going on and what is needed in the present moment to care for yourself and your child.
