The basis of aligned parenting.
You cannot feel worry and love at the same time.
You cannot think negative thoughts about someone and be an uplifter to them at the same time.
You cannot offer help or solution to anyone if you are not connected yourself.
This is the basis of Aligned Parenting.
But be easy on yourself.
You will not be aligned every moment of every day. You will not aways be connected to who YOU truly are. You will not always be in a place of positive perspective. Sometimes you will be tired, exhausted, and weary. Sometimes you will be tapped out while still having to serve, be present, and deal with the what-IS reality of children. Sometimes you will want to nap, to meditate, to take a walk by yourself, to just get away and you will not be able to.
So when you can, as often as you can, remember.
Remember that your child has an Inner Being and their Inner Being is always guiding them.
Remember that no emotions are bad, they are all evidence of a strong guidance system that is working. (Although we can help children learn to how to take safe action–or not take action at all–from a place of disconnection.)
Remember that you are allowed to have your journey too.
Remember that lists of positive aspects about your child are the greatest gift you can give them–and you.
Remember what my Quero Apache teacher says: think twice and speak once.
Remember that your child is closer to Source because they are younger and they may have an insight you have forgotten.
Remember that your child was born into a vibrational reality of this world that was asked for by generations before them–they are the future.
Remember that you can say, "I'm sorry".
Remember that you can always choose. And choose. And choose again.
Remember that your fears do not have to be their fears.
Remember that if you are worried about their choices and actions your first job is to ask yourself, "Does my Inner Being agree with me about my thoughts about this?"
Remember that when you are in the three-abundance mindset you will not be
1. worried about their stuff or your stuff (property abundance mindset)
2. worried about what job they will get in the future or how they will support themselves or even how many crayons they use (money abundance mindset)
3. worried about how and when their life is unfolding (time abundance mindset)
Remember that if you feel inspired to not use all the crayons and it feels good to not use all the crayons, that is not poverty mindset that is abundance mindset.
Remember to know the difference.
Remember that you can only teach in three ways:
Remember to let yourself be where you are, and know that where you are is constantly changing and that's as it should be. You can't stop growing, and neither can they.
And did you know?
Being a Law of Attraction parent is a conscious journey through YOUR life.
Your vibration about a topic is where you last left it and your child will touch so many topics that you thought you had left behind.
So no matter what...
No matter what the day, the week, the month, the year brings...
Remember that you can always, always, always, get to where you want to be as a parent from where you are if you care about how you feel, if you decide, and if you allow the emotional journey by doing the work.
What is the work?
The work is being more deliberate about how you want to feel, no matter what anyone else is doing.
Even if that person is your beloved, loved, loved, loved, loved child.
What an opportunity for clarity, for laughter, for alignment, for satisfaction, for harmony, for joy, for appreciation, for the feeling of love, and for the thing we all came to this Earth for–your child included–the expansion that comes from knowing what we don't want, deciding what we do want, and letting it in.
No matter how old we are.
