Parenting involves many volcanic moments. Times when we may need to blow our tops, but we often don't choose to.
Instead, we hold in all that emotional turmoil until it feels like a pound of bricks on our shoulders. In the middle of one of these moments we think there’s no way out. But we do have the power to choose how we respond and to change our mind sets.
Having a go-to mantra, whether simple or complex, can be a powerful tool to bring a positive shift for ourselves and our children.
The easiest mantra is to remind ourselves:
“Stop and breathe.”
Then consciously focus on your feet and ground yourself. A longer activation statement I've learned through Infinity Healing is very powerful:
“Let's command the light of consciousness to activate change and generate healing immediately.”
Whatever mantra you choose should be repeated several times while allowing the breath to flow completely through your body. You can enhance this by either smelling or dipping your hands into pine essential oil mixed with water.
By expanding our self-awareness we can create freedom within any situation. Parents CAN utilize creativity and the power of intention to release all that does not serve the family!
