One Woke Mama – Episode 050 – Consciously Choosing How You Direct Your Internal Energy

One Woke Mama – Episode 050 – Consciously Choosing How You Direct Your Internal Energy

Posted May 17, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 050 – Consciously Choosing How You Direct Your Internal Energy I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before but I’m deep into Somatic Coaching training and Breathwork training. And there has been this beautiful, common teaching over the last couple of weeks around our INTERNAL AWARENESS. Let me start here by highlighting something. As a mama, I can see that we often, without intending too, pull our children out of the body and into their head. We almost demand that they THINK through their feelings, emotions, experiences. We demand that they use their mind CONSTANTLY to discern, understand, grow. Of course, the mind is powerful and necessary. It’s how we learn many important skills. We use our mind constantly. However, the problem with our obsession with the mind and our constant encouragement to our children to use their mind is that it prevents us from learning how to listen to the other cornerstones within our internal awareness – Emotions AND Felt Sense/Sensation. Then, these children (just as we have) will inevitably grow into being quite heady. Disconnected from body, from heart. From trusting their emotions, their physical sensations, their intuitions. What’s almost comical about this, as my teacher Dan Brûlée highlights (and many other teachers I’ve had when learning about the brain/neuroscience/trauma) children are predominantly in their right brain/sub conscious mind for the first few years. It’s actually incredibly challenging for them to constantly be in a thinking state. Feeling states are their normal. Yet we push them to jump into their head and overload them with mental information. We present what is right, wrong, normal, abnormal. We teach our children (can you see this in yourself) that the mind is the guide, the leader, the default place for our attention. I’m pondering now on how different the world might be if we were all taught to honour our internal awareness from all sides – our thoughts, feeling sensations and emotions. How that would change our sense of wholeness, aliveness and the SHAPE of who we are in mind, body, spirit, soul. How we make decisions, show up in the world, connect with source energy, connect with our world and those in it. All thoughts, feeling sensations and emotions are forms of energy. We have the ability to choose where our attention goes to within our internal awareness which is made up of our thoughts, feeling sensation and emotions. You can choose to get stuck in the loop. Or you can choose to interrupt that cycle, that loop, otherwise it will spread and overwhelm. What if you can chose, despite the pain, or despite the incessant thoughts, or despite the overwhelming emotion to bring your attention gently elsewhere. To choose another way through. To calmly notice without judgment. Breathe. Drop the tension. Shift your awareness. Take the story out of it. You are not denying, ignoring or suppressing the pain, the emotions, the experience. No you are just choosing, consciously, where to bring your focus and attention on your internal awareness and therefore your outward daily experience. Just as I attempt to do when supporting my children through their experiences. You are exploring feelings and thoughts and even sensations that unconsciously drive your behaviour.

One Woke Mama – Episode 048 – What does it look like to emotionally hold yourself?

One Woke Mama – Episode 048 – What does it look like to emotionally hold yourself?

Posted May 03, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 048 – What does it look like to emotionally hold yourself? As a mama, I’ve been on a quite a journey, over the last 5+ years, in learning how to emotionally hold space for my daughter, and now my son. I’m not going to pretend that I’ve nailed this. It’s still a huge work in progress. My daughter is the child that challenges me the most. I frequently feel triggered by her emotional outburst, her reactions, her big feelings. She takes my nervous system to the edge and I’m often left feeling dysregulated and quite shaken. She requires a recipe – that I’ve yet to perfect. However, in my exploration of how to both honour her feelings, support her to feel those feelings yet inspire her to be brave, self-motivated, able to process the experience and grow from them, I’ve come to learn a few basic tools in how to emotionally hold space for her. The irony, in all of this learning, has been that most of what I’m learning to do with and for Soleil and Rafael, I’ve been teaching to my clients and learning for myself. The core of this is – how do we emotionally hold space for ourselves when we are feeling a lot. When there is rage bubbling up. Or shame, guilt, frustration. Or even apathy, boredom, exhaustion.  I want to share with you what I not only do for my children (as much as possible, yet I do frequently get somewhat derailed and have to get back on track), I also apply these tools to my clients, and most importantly myself. So whether you are a mama or not, everything I’m about to share – these simply, reflective tools – can be powerfully harnessed to support you to emotionally “HOLD” others, your clients, yourself. 1.Begin with awareness. Tune into the mind and body connection. Check in with your body. Notice sensations and feelings. Anchor into your body. Breathe. Big deep breaths. SIGH. Exhale with relief. YAWN. Slow the breath down. Make it rhythmical. Then come inward. Before you even go into any cognitive awareness, just  tune in to the sensations and feelings coming up and try and describe the sensation and where it’s felt. E.g I feel unsettled in my tummy. My heart is pounding. My body feels jittery. My head is achey. 2. Name what you feel, name what you notice. This leads to the ability to ultimately process and release these feelings. Can you name those sensations as feelings? Can you label them? Understand what’s underneath them? What do you FEEL. What’s the emotion? Now you are going to sportscast those sensations into FEELINGS. Acknowledge without judgment. This Qs below can be applied for children AND for yourself. This is a powerful and simple practice where you allow the feelings to exist. You are aware of them without moving, yet, to change them. What do you FEEL? You’re really angry right now I can see how angry you feel right now You really didn’t like it when…. You feel hurt about….. and you really wanted…. I’m noticing how flat and switched off you feel… I wonder if you are feeling scared? I can sense that you feel frustrated/annoyed… You are making it safe (for yourself and others) to feel SAFE in ALL of the feelings present. 3. Seek help, take action – through practices to change what you’re feeling. To move to the other side of what you are processing. Ask yourself or your child; what do you need right now? What would help you to feel different/better? Is there something your body is asking to do? What about your breathing? How can we breathe differently right now? Do you need to stay inside, go outside? +++ You’ll know for yourself and/or for your child when you are getting to the other side. The body will change shape, posture will open up, breathing will shift and regulate, smiles will return. There will be a clear shift in the sensations in the body and a clear grounding that returns. And in real time – only 20 minutes before recording this – I’ve had to use this practice on myself. I had to notice and become aware of the sensations. Label them and sport cast my own emotions. Then explore how I could help myself. Ultimately it was movement, breathing, mantras, meditation. I needed to shift some stuck and heavy energy.

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 047 – The Catastrophising Mind and How to Quieten The Mental Chaos with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz The world we live in right now is doing at great job at inducing fear. Which leads to loads of catatrophising in the mind. Not to mention that MOTHERHOOD, all on its own, lends itself to mental chaos, a loud over active mind. This episode is a previous interview from my private Om Mama Love program where Amy and I discuss how to quieten that mental chaos and alleviate the catastrophising mind. A perfect conversation for our current global climate +++ About Amy: Amy Taylor-Kabbaz is an internationally awarded life coach, best-selling author, award-winning journalist and creator of ‘Happy Mama’.

Posted April 19, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 046 – The Power of Sacred Circle and Altars The power of altars and sacred circles. Ritual and precious space to mark our passage through time, seasons, life. To honour our experience and reflect on what ha unfolded, to always learn from it, grow within life, be part of it, rather then swept up by it all To reflect on our inner world and outer experiences. To drop our duties, responsibilities and roles and to exhale into connection, divine love, support, transformation and healing. Jungian analyst and writer Jean Shinoda Bolen, says “When women come together and make a commitment to each other to be in a circle with a spiritual center, they are creating a vessel of healing and transformation for themselves, and vehicle for change in their world”. Sacred Circles and creating our own altars provides us with a point of divine reference, a place to softly land, to release, to be soothed and held, loved and supported as we reflect, transform and heal. +++ Listen to Episode 046: Show notes: To attend my next LIVE VIRTUAL Sacred Circle please join the Practical Magic, Spiritual Medicine Membership Group HERE  A monthly membership group to nourish, soothe, support and uplift.

One Woke Mama – Episode 045 – Our children don’t need us to save them, they need us to save ourselves

One Woke Mama – Episode 045 – Our children don’t need us to save them, they need us to save ourselves

Posted April 12, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 045 – Our children don’t need us to save them, they need us to save ourselves I’m in a season of deep learning. Over a year ago I attended workshop, on a whim, with a woman named Nancy Valentine. It was a little different to what I was used to, but yet at the same time I was profoundly comfortable in the space. Nancy activates energies, calls on magical beings and works with different realms in a way I can’t really describe. I remember feeling incredibly grounded at this event. And that I was receiving something, very gentle, that I was absolutely meant to. Following that workshop, literally the next day, a big light bulb went off. I ended up enrolling in not ONE but three trainings on Trauma, Somatic Healing and furthering my EFT skills. And since there, I have been in a BIG cycle of unleveling. On a cognitive, intellectual plane – there has been so much study! But also there has been a huge upgrade process on an emotional, energetic and spiritual plane. This year alone I have completed a breath work training, I have in the middle of a Mary Magdalene and Rose Teaching Online Retreat. I am part of an Embodied Leadership Mastermind and soon I begin an Embodied Transformaton 5 month training with some of the world’s leading somatic therapists, neuroscience geeks, embodiment experts. I can’t get enough of podcasts, energy healing sessions, sacred ceremonies, my own personal healing work. I’m blessed to be surrounded by soul sisters who willingly and intuitively contact me with healing they’ve downloaded for me. I’ve had mentors and guides on my journey who have contributed to my own awakening and growth in such profound ways and still do! I’m not sharing ANY of this to gloat. This cycle is the other side of what felt like overwhelming stagnancy for many years, in fact from when I first birthed my daughter and myself a as a mother. There wasn’t much time and space for anything else. And truthfully, I was not MEANT to deep dive into ANYTHING other than being IN motherhood, being in the lessons of motherhood. Sitting in the shadows and inner child wounds that came forth through motherhood. Birthing myself as a WOMAN and Mother was all consuming. And still is. This cyclee I am in now is just freaking YUM. Because I’m ready for it. And it’s part of what feels like a reshaping. A slow burning over the embers of life, scorching me and forging me. Alchemising who I am now into who I am becoming. No small, thing, right! It’ll end. Soon. Presently, though, this pandemic has provided me with the inner space to go hell for leather with this season of deep learning and growth. I’m just feeling so blessed and in love with life and all it has to offer right now. So why the heck am I sharing all of this? Well, in amongst all this learning has been one thread I want to share with you. It began during mentorship with Maryanne Sea (please check out the two previous chats I’ve done with this incredible woman). One element of my growth with her – specifically centred on my soul embodiment here in this human vessel – revolved around the dynamic between myself and Soleil (Rafael too, but for brevity sake I’ll focus just on little S). We were clashing. I was struggling to enjoy our relationship. I felt triggered by her, disconnected at times and simply overwhelmed. In one of our sessions Maryanne tuned into Soleil and received, what was at the time quick a shocking message, yet also incredibly authentic and felt true in my heart. Soleil made it very clear that she felt suffocated by my attempts to be everything to her, to hold her through life, to provide her with the support and love she needed. She wanted me to back off. Let me be clear here, this is all energetic. I was not literally suffocating her, or being in her face. But energetically she could sense my clinging to her – out of fear of not doing right by her. Of hurting her, or not providing the emotional support she needed. And her beautiful soul was asking me to step back. To loosen that energetic grip. In fact both her and Rafael sent this message through. “Mama, you do you. Look after you. Put yourself first. Worry about YOU and in doing that, we are OK. We are good. We will get what we need” Let that land. Do you first. Recently, I was listening to this AMAZING chat with Brene Brown and Glennon Doyle (MSUT LISTEN!) and Glennon summarised this in one perfect line: “Our children don’t need us to save them. They need us to save ourselves”. THAT is how they learn how to be in this world and how to be their full, authentic selves. You want your children to be resilience? Be resilient within yourself. You want your children to embody self worth? Embody worthiness within yourself. You want your children to experience love? Love yourself. You want your children to feel supported? Support yourself. You want your children to know how to follow their truth? Follow yours.  You want your children to know they are deeply cared for? Care for yourself. So that’s what I’ve done. I’ve put my needs back up on the top of the pile. I’ve prioritised my self care. I’ve been unapologetic about the work I want to do in the world, about the time I need to go inward, about the space I need to breathe, about the love I feel for myself. I’ve owned it all. And our relationship has become deeper, richer, more profound. The channel of love between myself and my children is WIDE OPEN and buzzing with vibrancy. +++ Listen to Episode 045 Show notes: Join Practical Magic, […] Read more
