Why rhythm works…

When I first heard the word rhythm I had no idea what was being said. We often hear weekly schedule or plan but the concept of rhythm was foreign to me. So let me take a moment to explain. Rhythm differs from a schedule because there is a flow. A schedule says this is what happens at such and such time, rhythm flows from one moment to the next. So when we look at all the components of a week and a month, we want them to flow and have a rhythm so that we can dance, not a rigid time schedule or plan that has no room for flow. Monthly rhythm has so much to do with preparation. Once we do prepare and start implementing this takes so much off our mental capacity. We actually have more time to think and create, instead of always trying to think only in the moment.

You are not Alone

4 years ago I remember feeling so alone in my journey. I felt like an alien. We had just moved back into a house after living off grid in a trailer and then a shed for the 5 months. My youngest was 5 months old at the time and we practiced elimination communication with both of the kids, which meant they were diaper free most of the time. My son was extremely sensitive to going indoors which was the only place that offered gatherings for children, so I found it very difficult to connect with other mothers, and almost impossible to connect with like minded mothers.

Magical Listening

The Mundane to Magical card this week is Magical Listening.
Magical Listening will create the ears to hear what is said as well as what is not. The willingness to stop and reflect what we are hearing will transform the way we listen. Listen fully with an open heart and mind when someone else is speaking, letting go of all personal judgements and thoughts to fully hear all they are saying.

How do you spend time with the Trees?

Tree time
Take time to be in nature every day. Whatever the weather may be, enjoy it! Step out each day to see and feel how much variation and fun can be discovered. Mother Earth creates each day anew for us to discover and find hidden treasures. Taking the time to establish the ritual of tree time will bring a longing to our children, and us, to stay connected to the Earth. Creating a healing within ourselves and a transformation to Mother Earth.

Finding your Rhythm

When I discovered rhythm of a wonderful side affect of the type of homeschooling that I had discovered, my whole life transformed. But it literally took me years to implement, understand how to make it work for me and to stop feeling guilty when it didn’t work.
