A Call for Love | are you available?

A Bell You Shall Be | a meditation for parents is my most popular post to date.  This is interesting on several fronts, and most especially because it is closest to my heart and it is profoundly simple.  It is not some great intellectual piece, it has zero research to substantiate it, and carries a message that every conscious parent is trying to hear.  Here’s an invitation to you to capture the essence and expand on the premise of A Bell You Shall BeRead the rest of this entry »

A Bell You Shall Be | a meditation for parents

When conditions are sufficient, you manifest peace.

My Dearest Children,

It is your nature to reflect reality as-it-is.  When conditions are sufficient, you manifest peace.  When conditions are insufficient, you manifest ill-ease. Read the rest of this entry »

Recipe for Love

"Don't say no; Go with the flow." ~ Henry's favorite intention

If feeding love grows happy kids (revisit Feed Love | Grow Happy Kids), then let’s exchange some recipes for love.

One of my favorites is Deepak Chopra’s, The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents.  He takes big, cosmos concepts and states them in 7 simple statements of intention.  The idea is that this makes it easy to share with our children.  The truth is:  this makes it easy for us to learn and then role model to our children.  Read the rest of this entry »

Increase Your Child’s Trust Account

Whether the value is known or not, every parent has a trust account with their children.  If conscious parenting calls us to awareness with action, then it may be time to read the balance statement of our children’s trust account - is it overdraft or increasing in value? Whatever the current balance, there are mindful steps we can take to plant, restore, and grow trust. Trust can improve the quality of every relationship, and is an essential ingredient to grow a garden of plenty. Read the rest of this entry »
