"Quantum science tells us that the consciousness that makes up the “you” and “I” of the world is truly interconnected to all other things. We are not separate at all. We participate, consciously or unconsciously, in a universe that is constructed of a vast field of consciousness, of thought. That as participators in this universe we can, with our thoughts, feelings and beliefs, change our world. We can alter what we are participating in simply by thinking about it; whether we are in the location of the object of our thoughts or not. We participate, across time and space with our mind and the unseen energy our thoughts create."

 

~ Suzy Miller – Excerpt from “Awesomism: A New Way to Understand the Diagnosis of Autism”

 

Family & Parenting


 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We found this video so pleasing, especially since we reviewed Dr. Shefali's book The Conscious Parent in 2010 and hosted a live chat with her in March 2011. It's so magical to us that conscious parenting is finally taking center stage. Like we've said before we've raised our children this way starting 30 years ago. Since Dr. Shefali appeared with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday it is now getting the recognition that we feel is needed for our children, parents and society.

 

Family & Parenting


by Margaret Paul, PhD

Do your children see you as happy and peaceful, or do they see you as angry, depressed or overburdened? Learn how important it is to good parenting for you to learn to take emotional responsibility for your own feelings...

 

Editor's Note: In this article, Margaret Paul, discusses a form of giving feedback to our children that is more valuable and effective than traditional praise. There is alot of information on 'avoiding praise' nowadays, and this approach gives parents something helpful that they can do instead, to empower children and preserve their excitement about learning.

 

Family & Parenting


by Lou Harvey-Zahra

The earth – helped by her two friends, the warm sunshine and tickling rain – grows the food that we eat to stay alive. The earth looks after us and we need to look after her. The earth is our home and holds treasures of life: plants, insects and animals! Our own garden is a wonderful and amazing place...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Lou states in Part 1 of her article, "As parents we need to ask the question: 'What legacy are we leaving for our children?' 'What about our children’s children?' No longer can companies and governments clear old growth rainforests, dredge the seas of all life, and pump toxic waste into our water ways, without a cry of 'no!' from protesters and protectors of our planet for the future generations." Again, in Part 2 she provides great ideas on becoming green and living a more sustainable life.

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: Sir Ken Robinson addresses the historical development of our educational system and why reform is essential for the future.

 

Family & Parenting


by Lou Harvey-Zahra

As parents we need to ask the question: “What legacy are we leaving for our children?” “What about our children’s children?” No longer can companies and governments clear old growth rainforest, dredge the seas of all life, and pump toxic waste into our water ways, without a cry of “no!” from protestors and protectors of our planet for the future generations...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: We were drawn to this article because of the simple yet important tips Lou provides on becoming green and living a more sustainable life. She also speaks about carrying on a legacy for your children and your children's children. Lou does a fantastic job of giving us ideas on how we all can reduce our carbon footprint.

 

Family & Parenting


by Simon Paul Harrison

The tools and techniques to support children in re-connecting with their birthrights of child-like wonder, love for learning and natural creativity are so simple yet so powerful. The difference that one individual can and does make for children is staggering. Everyone has these gifts to give...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: In the spirit of how this article is written, the possibilities of a new mindset of how we raise and teach all children could become a blueprint for a happier way of living. Simon Paul Harrison's book The Truly Alive Child For those who seek a grander vision for our children is a must read for any parent on a conscious parenting path.

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: WOW! Just WOW! This is a must see, especially if you have a son. It reminds me of the quote "the way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice" by Peggy O'Mara.

 

Family & Parenting


by Sylvia Poareo

A client asks, “How can I help my child have good self esteem, when I don’t?”

The fact that she can recognize that this is a problem is the first step!  So often, parents, particularly those that have personal histories to heal, focus intensely on helping their children to have the confidence they don’t.  However, we cannot teach self-esteem...

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you haven't had the pleasure of listening to Eckhart Tolle or reading his work after watching this video we are sure you'll become a fan! We encourage you to search him out more.

 

Family & Parenting


by Bruce Buccio

How do you view and define discipline as a parent? Finding the right balance that works with your child is your prerogative, within reason of course. What would happen if you were to start reasoning with your child with rationale and good understanding of the issue as if you were ... mentoring...

 

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Bruce Buccio provides healthy conflict resolution examples between parent and child. One of the reasons we really appreciate this article is the guilt free examples Bruce provides. Bruce teaches parents how to be in control of their emotions at the time of conflict instead of their emotions controlling them.
