Where did we pick up that we have to everything ourselves and asking for help shows a sign of weakness. F that.
I just started a fundraiser on FB and it freed up something inside of me. Even if I raise $20 beans the experience is priceless with the immense gifts it has already given to me.
It taught me that it's ok to ask for help infact it's giving people a great opportunity to practice generosity which in turn brings even more resources to them ten fold back. That's how the universe works. You show the universe that you know you are abundant so you practice generosity and the universe reflects that back to you.
If we are in scarcity and align our actions towards that belief system then we will block our abundance and keep the scarcity of "I don't have enough" vibe in our field.
Asking for help is actually a great blessing and opportunity for one another.
I once tipped a musician money and chocolate and the next day I got double in sales.
Let's practice generosity! It feels so good!! believe me.
I invite you to see where you are at with asking for help? 🍃

This is what playing with the SnuggleBuddies PeaceMakers Collection (not on the market yet) looks like an action. •
SnuggleBuddies get kids thinking and talking about their memories and feelings, nurturing emotional intelligence! These adorable plushes have four “mood emojis” (angry/scared-red, happy-yellow, sad-blue, and calm-green) connected by silky ribbons that tuck into a pocket on the backside of each animal. •
Kids can pick their favorite PeaceMakers animal friend to snuggle or collect all seven. 🐻 🦊 🦁 🐦 🐬 🦉🐘 ✨
Listen to this 4 yo cutie (snuggling with Violet Elephant) as she tells me a story and then tells me her feeling word to go with her memory. •
SnuggleBuddies launch via Kickstarter on Sept 12 —- and you won’t want to miss all the crazy fun we have planned for our community. •
PS: tell me, if you know our seven PeaceMakers animals...which is your fav?!

'"Radical Cram School” consists of six “Sesame Street”-style episodes that tackle timely issues such as racism, misogyny and bullying in a child-friendly context. The series casts nine kids, with eight identifying as girls and one as gender fluid.
The idea behind “Radical Cram School” came when co-producer Theodore Chao, a professor of Education at Ohio State University, realized that his nine-year-old daughter and her friends “were internalizing the racist and misogynistic rhetoric surrounding the 2016 Trump campaign.” The series title is a “social justice twist” on “cram schools,” or high-intensity tutorial centers that are popular in Asian communities. “While the subject matter skews mature, the kids’ unscripted reactions are hilarious and heartwarming,” the producers said in a press release. “This series is geared towards kids of color (and grown kids of color), parents and educators who want to engage kids in conversations about identity and social justice, fans of comedy, and activist communities.” “Grounded in academic research and crafted with comedy, ‘Radical Cram School’ sparks the kind of conversations not happening in school to explore topics such as structural racism, misogyny, feminism, gender identity, income inequality, and how to practice self-expression to transform negative experiences.” Coproducer Kristina Wong said, "I was inspired by the Radical Monarchs in Oakland– an alternative to the Girl Scouts whose curriculum centers on the experiences of their Brown and Black girl members. ‘Radical Cram School’ gives young Asian American girls a similar space to process their experiences and learn how to be allies to other social movements.”' (NextShark)

Me paso rápido por aquí para enseñaros este libro 📖🌳🧘🏻♀️que hace tiempo quería enseñaros, y es que nos tiene 😍 desde que lo compramos!. ..
🤔💬 A raíz de Post de los minerales y piedras 💎 para meditar con niños me preguntáis mucho por cómo lo hacemos con Bichillo en casa y aunque me gustaría un día escribir un Post con nuestra experiencia a largo plazo (porque esto es como un jardín, no salen las flores de un día para otro) os voy contando truquillos... y este es uno!.
El libro es finito, tiene unas ilustraciones preciosas y delicadísimas y viene con 4 ejercicios de Mindfulness para hacer con los peques desde muy peques (con explicación para los papis) y crear consciencia sobre esas pequeñas-grandes cosas: la respiración, el cuerpo, la nutrición, los centros de energía, las “raíces”... Lo tenemos hace ya unos 6 meses, es uno de los favoritos!!.
Resumiendo, me parece una herramienta 🔝🔝🔝 para empezar a introducir a los niños de una forma muy muy simple, en un estilo de vida consciente, con presencia y autoconocimiento.
⁉️⁉️ Os dejo link de Amazon en el perfil. (Yo, desde que lo compré en una librería un tanto especial, no lo he vuelto a ver... y es una pena porque es maravilloso!)

In the authors note, Francesca Sanna tells us that she created this story as a “collage of all [migrants and refugees] personal stories and the incredible strength of the people within them”. As I read this book, I was reminded of these lines from Warsan Shire’s poem titled Home:
"you have to understand,
no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land." An absolutely beautiful story. #thejourney #francescasanna
Kids have shit days too.
We must allow them to be in bad moods, mess up and learn to do better each time they react in a negative way. We have to get to the root cause of each action.
Some of these children have been here more times than some adults walking this Earth.They have infinite amounts of wisdom inside. And each handles their anger and pain differently.
Let's give these little humans permission to feel exactly what they feel within the Now. The less they suppress and bypass now, the less shadow work they will have to do later.
P.S. Who the hell doesn't want to bite or kick someone on a daily. Haha
Save the Soil, Save the World 🌎 Smiling Mama over here when you realize your kids are beyond conscious of permaculture principles, what they eat, & the importance of soil 🌱 We have seedlings growing in the garden & as we were observing, I looked around to find Zaya kissing the plants. Love nature, love yourself 💚
There’s a fear people have that being respectful to children in the way we raise them will “spoil” them.
Just pause for a moment to sit with just how fear based this notion is.
In truth, there is nothing permissive about being an adult who is able to regulate our own emotions such that we are able to raise our children from a responsive place in the brain —- our prefrontal cortex —- as opposed to from a more primitive, reactive place in the brain —-our brain stems —- where fear and anger run the show.
Taking our own (to the best of our human ability that is), hostility and violence out of the equation in the way we discipline children does not result in permissiveness.
It results in discipline as opposed to punishment and clear, firm, consistent, loving and respectful connection.
The sort of connection that can heal past wounds, create resilience children, and bring peace to this one planet we all share.

Our daughter has been spending a lot of time with her grandparents recently. It is very rewarding to see that relationship develop. She brings out sides of them that I rarely see. When that happens I find my view of them challenged and I am reminded how my daughter is my guide in this world as much as I am hers. Mindful parenting, I believe, is often merely about recognizing the gifts our kids bring us day after day. #consciouscuts #littleguru #storiesforbeing #consciouskids #edieart #parenting #mindfulparenting
The wonders of a child’s imagination are boundless. There is no question about that when you spend even moments with any toddler. Yet, studies show that young children actually prefer helping with real tasks, over pretending.
In a recent article in Developmental Science, children were read two different stories about sharing. One group was read a fictional story, illustrated with animals sharing, while the other group was read a story arted with human characters. Afterward, the group who listened to the human character story shared more stickers on average than the children who heard about the animals. Findings show that preschoolers more easily apply knowledge learned from realistic stories to the real world, as opposed to information encountered in fantasy stories.
Anyone with children who has ever taken laundry out of a dryer, or unloaded the dishwasher can attest, children want in on the action. It’s important that we indulge them any opportunity that we get. A few ways I do this are; Ask them to help sort the laundry into tops/pants/etc. Let them spray a water bottle onto the bathroom mirror or sliding door as I clean. Unloading the plastic plates and cups from the dishwasher. Dumping ingredients into a bowl and stir while we bake cookies.
Children in this sensitive period of their life crave real experiences. It’s easy to ignore their pleas when, yes, it will take you double (ahem, if not triple) the time to let them help. If we are mindful each day to engage our children in realistic learning, they will be that much more capable of handling tasks on their own!
What are some ways you encourage your child in realistic play time?

Postpartum phase can be overwhelming, emotional and a very challenging process.
You (or your loved one) can be fully supported during this period-it takes some open mindedness and pre-planning.
Open Mindedness: Knowing that there will be a phase once the baby arrives that will be unlike anything you have ever experienced & how is possible to move through that stage with ease and grace—and in a place of non-judgement. Neither judging yourself and what you are going through, nor judging another woman’s postpartum experience.
Pre-planning: There are tools and a practices you can implement now that you'll be able to thread into our day to feel more at peace and centered.
