How to Break Generational Cycles and Give Your Children the Lives They Deserve

Ahhhh!!! I’m SO excited about the episode today that I can barely contain myself! As a conscious mom, I really think a lot about how I treat my kids, what I say to them, and how I impact them on a daily basis. Some days I suck. Most days I’m pretty damn amazing. No matter what kind of day I am having, I am sometimes painfully aware that I’m passing unconscious patterns down to my own children (and making massive changes as well). This very topic is NEAR AND DEAR to my heart! I LOVE to help moms break dysfunctional patterns that have been passed down for generations. In your parent-child relationship (and your partner relationships), you continuously play out the SAMEContinue Reading

Tips to Empower Your Child to Talk to “Mean” Friends

Does your child have a friend that you just wish would go away? You know that one…the one that says mean things to her, leaves him out when playing with others, or turns others against her. Well, unfortunately one of my children did have THAT friend in 1st grade and it was painful to watchContinue Reading

How to Raise Spiritual Children (when you don’t follow organized religion)

There are some things you may not know about me, but the cat is out of the bag, now (see video)! I was raised Catholic but even as a child, I never subscribed to their belief system. I have nothing against Catholicism or any other organized religion for that matter. Many people I love go to Church every week and I respect them and their beliefs. You see, I believe that having faith in something can help you through the hardest of times and I struggled for years to find mine. I AM a spiritual woman. I meditate, I’ve been reading Oracle cards for myself for over 20 years, I have a special altar in my bedroom with Goddesses, rocks, and meaningful objects placed upon a beautiful silk scarf, and I attend women’s circles, fire ceremonies, and full moon gatherings when I feel called. As I’ve raised my own kids, I’ve thought a lot about what values I want to instill in them and how I can help them believe in the greater good within themselves. I have no interest in attending or taking them to church, but if they ever ask to go, I will certainly allow them to explore this option and their own belief systems. I want my kids to believe in themselves, in love, intuition, and in power of the mind. I used to wonder what other spiritual women (who were not part of organized religion) did to incorporate spirituality into their own children’s lives. And now I know…because I’m  one of them. Years ago, I began doing my own version of this and it is working very well for our family! Today’s video is very vulnerable for me as I take you into my family’s spiritual life. Maybe you’ve been wondering how you can raise spiritual children, too, or you just need a few new ideas to incorporate positivity into their lives. Lindsay Pera is an amazing Mystic, colleague, and friend of mine. We spent some time chatting about the different rituals and the little things we do to raise consciousness within our own children. Enjoy! Please comment at the end of the video because I’d love to know what YOU do as well!Continue Reading
