My Soul Teacher Lesson #3: More Gratitude, Less Stress

My oldest shouted, "Mommy I want some breakfast." "What do you want?" I asked. He answered with, "Just some plain toast." While I was preparing the toast, he kept asking if the toast was ready. I urged him to wait a few more minutes. He began growing impatient and I began to get slightly annoyed. After I put his toast on a plate and broke it up into small pieces, I grabbed an apple to cut for myself. Mid slice he walked over and said, "That's a big apple. I want some. The whole thing." I looked over, saw that he had not touched his toast yet, and responded, "Eat what you just asked for and then you can have your own apple. " Then came the drama, "No! No! No! I can't want that toast anymore! I want some apple!" He stomped his feet, folded his arms, frowned, and gave a whole performance. Bec...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #2: Get Free

My husband was holding our baby boy a few days ago and he made the observation, "He still hasn't stretched his legs all the way out." My husband tried to hold baby boy away from his body to help him stretch his legs out. His legs stretched a little but quickly curled back up. My baby's legs had been curled since he began to outgrow my womb. This limited the movements that he could make signaling that his days were coming to an end in the womb and he would soon be entering the physical realm. Now that he's out of the small space in my womb, he has plenty of room to stretch and experience new levels of freedom. Yet he's still comfortable curling his legs in and bending his knees. After observing and taking these moments in, I gained clarity on what I needed to receive.  My baby had grown ...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #1: “Blank Canvas, New Beginnings”

Last night my three-year-old asked me if he could paint. Me being a fan of creating when your heart speaks to you, quickly pulled out some newspaper, a pack of poster paint, a brush, and let him do his thing. While he was painting, he made a "mistake". I love abstract art and I see "mistakes" as beautiful. However, he was really upset and didn't see the mark that he made as something that he was proud of. I tried to come up with a solution and said, "It's okay. Just try again and paint it the way that you want to. Just do it over." He pouted and folded his arms not buying what I had to say. Then suddenly he said, "I paint it white!" He put his brush into the white paint, painted over the small spot that he didn't like, and said, "All better!". After that he painted over the white spot he m...

Due Date or Divine Timing?

My due date for delivering my baby boy was two days ago. Guess what? I'm still pregnant! How could that be? I'm 40 weeks and two days in. Due dates are 100% accurate right? Wrong! Due dates are assigned by man. This concept of time doesn't just apply to labor and delivery though. I see it applied everywhere with deadlines and the unrealistic expectations that we place on ourselves to reach our goals. How often do we find ourselves stressed and pressed to reach a goal because we're obsessed with a specific date and time to do it? How many of us feel like we should cross x, y, and z off of our lists before we reach a certain age? What if I told you that we put those burdens on ourselves by constantly living in this mental place that we think we should be doing more or that life should be hap...
