Introducing EFT (tapping) to children with music.

parenting wellbeing Jun 22, 2020
 

Are bedtimes a struggle? Do your children have strong emotions that they find difficult to handle? Maybe EFT, or tapping could be the answer.  EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a bit like acupressure for the emotions and is a fantastic thing to do with and teach younger children. It gives them a tool to be able to release negative energy and allows them to take control of their emotions.  EFT works by tapping on certain meridian points around the body, which stimulates them and can help to regulate anger, stress or a poor self image.  Raindrops is a wonderful song for calming children down at bedtimes, encouraging children to become present and of course to do tapping with. Which is why in my work, I pair this song with an expert workshop for parents and children, from the Amazing Tappy Jo, a A Master EFT Practitioner who has spent years using tapping within the education sector with children.  You can find the song"Raindrops" on all major record providers, or...

Raising a Child with a Positive Mindset

mindset music parenting Jun 20, 2020

So you want to raise a child with a positive mindset and healthy self image, right?  And you understand a little about the subconscious mind and how the  programming we receive in the first seven years of life go on to form the hard drive that we use to run the rest of our lives on a 95% unconscious basis? Ok, so we’re on the same page. Then throw in the power that music has go straight into the unconscious mind and you might just start to get a little bit excited at the thought of what is possible for your children, when we combine powerful affirmations, positive parenting and language with music!  Then supercharge it with the incredible energies of love and FUN and then ...  and only then, will you have an idea of why I do what I do. And it's why I did a little TEDx talk about it, " Inspiring Confidence & Self Belief in Children through Music." Feel free to check it out at the link below. You see, it really is all about how we see things and how that...

Raising children who are honest, kind and brave

Most people want to raise a confident child, but this of course starts with the parent and their ability to respond, instead of react.  For when we become aware of our subconscious programming and we start to step out of that and stop reacting on autopilot, we can start to take responsibility for our own triggers and understand what they are telling us and resolve them. Only then can we truly parent with intention for the outcome we want, which is to raise a child who is honest, kind and brave ... because we are ultimately being those things ourselves.

Remove the word "don't"

communication parenting Jun 15, 2020

Bringing your attention to your language is vital when we want to raise children who are positive and solution focussed. Younger children cannot understand the word don't.  It's a double negative.  Instead, focus your words on the outcome you want.

Single mum transforms her life and empowers others through music.

If you’d have told me 6 years ago that I would be full time single parenting, homeschooling, relocating, doing a TEDx talk and would be running an online business doing something I loved, I would have laughed in your face.  I was a big hot mess. I’d just come out of a long term abusive relationship, my kids and I were all over the place and I was singing “Wheels on the bus” in a village hall to preschoolers. But here’s the thing ...  I knew I was capable of more. When I decided to take my music sessions online just to escape my physical location, I had to face all of my fear, doubt and insecurity. Did I nail it all? No! I still have many fears, I just got really good at facing them. I grew strong. I learned techniques and mindset. I took control of my racing thoughts and I did a shed load of work on my emotional health. And then suddenly, wheels on the bus just wasn’t going to cut it anymore. I knew I had to teach children what I’d...

Solution focussed children

 

When we consciously shift our children from the problem to the solution, we create a habit. A habit that starts to teach our children to start to shift out of the problem and on to the solution, which is essential for a healthy mind and wellbeing, for what we focus on expands.

Racism, like most hatred, is taught in early childhood

music parenting Jun 05, 2020

The events of the last week have bought me to despair. The ignorance, the hatred, the apathy, have all left me reeling.  And yet hatred in the main, in my humble opinion, has to be carefully taught.  Young children in playgrounds with other children, do not see colour.  They do not see labels and they do not see race.  They just see other children.  

The way that we, as parents talk about, judge and label and treat others within earshot of our children, is absorbed by the child during the imprinting stage.  Before age 7, our children are in a hyper learning phase, essential for their survival and it means that they are absorbing everything and accepting it as fact.  This is where our children's beliefs systems are formed.  These beliefs go onto become the default programme, that they will use to run the rest of their lives on a largely unconscious basis.  It influences all thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It forms part of who we...

Would you want your child to follow their dreams?

mindset wellbeing Jun 03, 2020

Have you ever had a dream so big that when you tell people about it, they look at you like you’re batshit crazy?  Have you ever felt so afraid of changing your life that you don't even know where to start?  I know have.  When I told people about my idea to start a musical programme to encourage a healthy internal world and self belief in parents and children with music, some people told me that I should be more realistic. Or that maybe I should go back to work. Or that maybe I should start smaller. 

I know they meant well and they probably had a point.  I mean, I was a full time single mum to two young boys and I was already running another small business, struggling to just get by and juggle everything life threw at us as it was. How would I find the time or resources to build such a dream? I had no songs...no website, no insta.  No nothing.. Nor did I know how to build any of that stuff... I mean, I just ran music sessions for kids in a village...
