Feelings and living to your fullest expression



Our emotions are a gateway, they govern so much...but underneath there are often wounds, and when someone touches on them we sometimes say they "made us feel" a certain way.

When we tune into taking responsibility for our feelings, and choose to explore and feel them deeply, only then can we fully express our brightest selves.

Expecting children to 'behave' or even be in a position to be able to learn, when they are struggling with anxiety, stress or early childhood trauma is not viable. 
 
I invite you to think back to a time when you were stressed, tired, or in mental or emotional turmoil or distress.  Where you on your game? Were you receptive to learning? Or were you paralysed. Trapped in your head, going over and over things in your mind? Did you maybe snap at people, or lose control of your emotions. Were you easily angered? Could you focus or concentrate, or did the room seem to too small for your feelings and you just had to get the hell out? Did you sleep or eat well?
Did you want to go out and socialise with your friends and play loads?
 
I could be wrong, but I suspect not. 
 
If your child is hyperactive, melting down and seems unable to be still, focus or concentrate, follow instructions or is simply lashing out at others, it could be time to stop judging...

Is your chid using attention seeking behaviour? This means they are literally crying out for your connection, understanding and positive attention. When we bring our judgement, we kill any chance of being able to help them. The goal is secure, confident and resilient children and love for kids is spelt T.I.M.E.

The power of the mind and the power of music. A killer combination.

If I asked you what you wanted for your child, I know you would want your child to be happy, but I also bet you would want them to believe in themselves.  But what is a belief and why are they so important?

Our belief’s are the very essence of who we are. They are the stories we tell ourselves about who we are, what we are capable of and who we think we're going to be. And these stores are planted in our minds in early childhood. Between the ages of 2 and 7, our children are in a hyper learning phase called the imprinting stage, which is  essential for our survival. Our brainwaves are in theta, which is much slower than when we are adults and it makes us highly suggestible, but it means that we are absorbing everything around us and accepting it as fact.  It's one of the reasons that childhood is so magical. We believe everything. But that’s the good stuff and the bad stuff.  This programme is then what we use on a largely unconscious basis, to run ...
