A Mother’s Message to Her Child: I Will Wait For You

As I was meditating today I was listening to Mumford & Sons, “I Will Wait” and a thought occurred to me: parenting is very much a waiting process. It is like the unfolding of a flower. My son is a seed that was planted and has sprouted. I long to see the flower that he blossoms into. At that very moment it occurred to me that my son has been waiting for me to blossom! He has grown with me from shedding my selfish ways into taking ownership of being a parent and not just any parent, but one who advocates for him.

I don’t usually run in the mornings, I usually walk and meditate. Today was different; this morning was filled with mosquitoes outside and I didn’t want to have a miserable experience, I wanted to enjoy. As I was running I was thanking myself, my body, God for the capability to run. I used to run anywhere from 2 to 4 miles per day. It was my way of releasing the day.

When I first met my husband he ran seven to ten miles a day. As simple as this thought may sound, it was rather empowering:

When my husband and I ran together he slowed down because he was a faster runner and he could do the seven to ten miles. He was never resentful that I couldn’t keep his pace. He wanted to enjoy time with me so he ran at my pace. He never passed judgement thinking, “Wow, you’re too slow what’s wrong with you? Why can’t you keep up?” It was always about our time together enjoying each other wherever we were.

I realized, in today’s highly demanding society where everything is about getting it now, we are doing that exact thing to our children.

Special needs or not, we are demanding a lot of our children. We are demanding them to grow up sooner than they should. We are demanding that they have an understanding of our world instead of us understanding they are just adapting to their own and ours.

We need to take a step back and realize that our children are the seeds that we planted in the soil, our family. That we are the gardeners tending to them making sure that they get the proper fertilizer, learning. That the weather conditions don’t drown them out or wilt them, that they don’t lose themselves in society’s perspectives of who they are. That we prune them at the right time so that they become stronger for who they are meant to be not for who we want them to be.

We also need to recognize that we have a very symbiotic relationship with our children. That as we become better gardeners tending to our children, it is their beauty they reveal that brings us joy. As we revel and soak in their beauty, we share our tenderness and there is the reciprocation. It is a simple yet profound energy exchange.

Why Do We Need Energy Work?

Why do we need #energy work? Because we are all energetic beings and we all understand that we go through days where we have more energy and other days where we have barely any to get through. To me it just seems simple that we would all need energy work… an understood thing.
But as I have done more sessions and individuals process differently, I thought I would share what came to me in a session I did recently. It came to me in more layman terms so I am going to share just like that….
Let’s say you are preparing to move. Part of the mental process is to let go of your old space and prepare for the new one. Although it sounds pretty simple it’s not. Preparing for a move takes energy, which when in the process, can be rather draining because it’s one more thing to do on top of working, taking care of our family and ourselves. Whether it is a big or small move, moving takes time, preparation and organization.
 When you are moving you have to decide what you are going to take with you and what you are going to discard or giveaway. Because you want your new place to feel like you…but better! So you pack everything that you want to take with you and you sort through and decide which items bit by bit are not coming with you. Usually, when moving, you are in the midst of a balancing act. First comes taking care of family then work and caring for yourself then moving, though not always in that perfect order. But moving nonetheless is happening whether it is in the forefront or in the background. It is stressful even if it might be to a bigger more beautiful home, it still is stress.
The same thing happens during my energy work sessions for my clients. The client has decided that they need and are ready to move forward however that may be for them in whatever life circumstance they are experiencing. It is an appointment that they make with #Divine and I am strictly the facilitator helping them let go of what they no longer need so that they can move forward being true to themselves and therefore feeling lighter. Essentially, they become the new home. They still have their basic traits and basic core of who they are, but without the unnecessary weightedness of and necessary burdens they have taken on throughout their life.
It is always amazing to be witness to someone else’s #transcendence. To see where they were and where they are now and for them to acknowledge how their perspectives change. Or they witness how their bodies change because they are processing life differently which is affecting them on a mental, emotional, spiritual and therefore physical level. More so, how alleviating them from their densities, they are now affecting their world positively and #enlightening others around them. 
That is why we all need energy work. That is why I enjoy doing what I do.
Thank you @Oprah for your wonderful quote.
