My adorable four and a half year old boy started preschool last week. He attended a little pre-school before the pandemic- but only two mornings a week, so this full-day, every-weekday preschool is a new experience for him- and for me.
I keep reminding myself of the teachings of several of my guides- "children have their own internal guidance". I know that my son made a pre-life plan of what he wants to experience here in his life- that he chose his time of birth, his family, his physical body, and his mental faculties. My Hypnosis clients are reminded of this plan during our sessions, and I myself remember very vividly my own womb-regression experience.
I look at my little boy, and even though he feels like an extension of myself, my little creation- I know that he has an inner being that is guiding him on his path- and that I can't, and shouldn't- try to replace that guidance. I should only complement it. He was conceived in my womb and I nourished him- but I didn't actually "create him". He always WAS, and now he decided to incarnate once again here on earth. I chose to be his mom, and he chose to be my son. Lucky us ;0)
Knowing what I know doesn't mean I'm not at times a "helicopter mom". After all- I"m human and I certainly have my shortcomings. So what I try to do is simply to remain conscious of reality- who my son is and who I am- and what our roles are in each other's lives. My clients who are parents often face similar issues. They try to influence their children's lives and steer them in their desired direction. It is often necessary for the PARENTS to do their inner work- so that they learn the difference between appropriate parental guidance- and inappropriate intervention and control. Many people didn't have an example of healthy parenting and a healthy family dynamic- so it is natural that they need to learn a new way of relating to their kids. And for those of you reading who want to heal their own wounds and become better parents- Hypnosis is here to help guide you to a healthy family dynamic!
