Speaking from the Heart
Do you ever feel like
* no matter how much you try to take care of yourself
* put into practice the things you see in others blogs and Facebook posts
change your life for the better
You feel stuck?
I completely understand how that feels. When I had my first child, all I knew was how I was raised. I was raised with spankings, guilt and yelling. These were the parenting tools that I had. I didn’t want to use them, but they were all I had. I felt so lost, unheard and unable to change.
But that all changed when I took a step to get more support. NO matter how many blogs I read, books I read, people I talked to, it wasn’t until I invested into myself and really got the support that I needed that my life completely changed.
One of the tools that I learned when I stepped into the support that I really needed to become the mom I wanted to be was learning new communication tools.
My favorite is what I call Speaking from the Heart:
Speaking from the heart requires an awareness of our needs and feelings in the moment. When we express a request from anyone make sure to use “I feel”, “I need” or “I am” in the message. Letting those around us be aware that we have a need, desire or request helps those we are talking to feel connected and more willing to help.
When we take away the blame, guilt and energy of everyone else but our own feelings, needs and desires, there is nothing to get mad at. The other person is only hearing what is within your heart. It helps clear the air, be really heard and create the space for authentic communication.
If this is the only tool you put into practice in the new year, you will have drastic transformation with all the relationships in your life. I know that I have!
I also want to let you know that I will be hosting a free Workshop on Wednesday December 13, 2016. I would love to have you join!!! You can accept the invitation through the event in the Magical Mothering Facebook Group.
If you can’t attend live there will be a recording that will be accessible to those that say that are going 🙂 So mark going even if you can’t be there live.
We will be going over the 3 steps to creating a life from invisible to empowered. So many women I work with have a hard time moving forward and creating their magical life, because they have lost who they even are!
Do you ever feel like you don’t know who you are anymore?
Do you feel like you used to have so many passions, excitement and know who you were, but now feel like you live for everyone else in your house?
I love being a mom, but I lost myself in the first few years of my mothering. I gave my all to everyone else and was so depleted I didn’t even realize until I felt like I was drowning!
It doesn’t have to be that way! There is a way to get the support to create a life where you are on fire, passionate and want to create the life of your dreams (and know the steps to actually get there!)
Looking forward to hearing how speaking from your heart helped this week! And I hope to see you at the live call!
I am off with a sprinkling of fairy dust and flick of my magic wand,
