22nd September is our wedding anniversary. Seven years ago, John and I said "I do" in front of our closest and dearest in a little Italian town, Furore, located in the Amalfi Coast.
It was an incredibly magical day, and we have both evolved and changed since then.
The woman John married isn't the same woman that's writing this.
The man I married isn't the same man with who I'm celebrating our...
A few evenings ago, I did a Masterclass "Meet Fear, with Love", and in it, I shared the 5 most common habits we do that impact our relationships and parenting - that aren't aligned with Love.
1. Feeling as though we have to "fix" the other person, or that there is something wrong here that we have to "fix" - and therefore are responsible for making someone else feel better.
Avery is missing his cousins and close group of friends, so I decided to run start running some mindfulness classes so they can all connect.
Yesterday was our first class, and I shared about "Big Feelings".
This is a group of 3 - 6-year-olds.
I asked them, "Who here has felt mad or angry before?"
They all raised their hands.
"Who here thinks that they are a...
Growing up, I never wanted to be my mother - and I did not want to marry someone like my father.
My parents had their issues, and while I had compassion for their journeys - in my mind, I kept thinking, "No way would I be my mother or put up being in a relationship with someone that would treat me the same way my father treated my mother."
Consciously we know what isn't good for us and are aware...
Following on from last week, I want to share about Intuition, Parenting, and the Pandemic.
Intuition plays a big part in knowing that we are living from a place of Love.
Intuition is all about making choices that align with our Highest Self.
However - most of us have Intuition as a concept, an idea, a feeling - and it's not a one size fits all.
The outcome is always the same "To trust...
There is 1 question that will reveal your patterns.
It is the reason why you don't feel safe in relationships or feel safe to be loved or feel safe to be abundant.
It is the reason why you have "imposter syndrome" and feeling like a fraud.
It is the reason why you can't ask for what you need, don't know how to navigate conflict, and numb yourself - or push people away when you need them.
I'm 16 years old.
It's a regular scene in our home. My brother (13 years old) and I are sitting at the top of the stairs listening in on our parents arguing.
My parents are screaming and yelling at each other.
However, on this particular day, it's escalating.
"WHY DON'T YOU LOVE ME?!" Yells my mum through her tears at my dad.
In her hand is a knife. She has put it to her neck.
"I'm going to kill...
Last week I shared about "Choosing Love".
This week, I want to share the other side of the story.
It proved to be a balm to many adult children who grew up feeling unseen, unheard, and misunderstood. If you missed it, you can read it here.
For the parents of adult children where the relationship is testing, my previous post would have cut really deep.
It may have triggered old wounds,...
John and I are on our walk.
"How are you feeling about your parents?". He asked.
If you've been following for a while, you may know the story.
Late last year, my parents disowned me - it was over a misunderstanding.
I was given an ultimatum.
"Stop doing what you're doing (i.e. teaching and writing on how to heal from generational patterns), or you lose us as parents."
I chose what was most...
Forgiveness is big.
Without a relationship to "forgiveness", we don't have a relationship to Love.
Without understanding forgiveness, we are hindered in the way we love.
Have you ever made a mistake?
Here's the "truth" of what you need to accept about being human.
We're always going to make mistakes. There will be times when we fall short. There will be moments where we wish we did...
