One Woke Mama – Episode 035 – Re-parenting your inner child through disallowed joy, excitement and fulfillment

One Woke Mama – Episode 035 – Re-parenting your inner child through disallowed joy, excitement and fulfillment

Posted January 12, 2020

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 035 – Re-parenting your inner child through disallowed joy, excitement and fulfillment Let’s talk about Inner Child work. We all have inner child wounds. We have many “inner children’ within – different versions of ourself at different ages and stages, split off and caught/frozen in that energy, attitude, behaviour, feeling, wounding. This is true for all of u. Whether we have experienced trauma that is classified as a major life event, something that completely redirected the path of your life – we call this BIG T Trauma; something happened that was too much too soon or too fast. Or even if you experienced those everyday, small T trauma experiences… the daily hurts and unmet needs. Let’s not feel distressed about that – these inner children are beautiful teachers and guides. They want to be brought up and healed. And it’s not something you can force. When that part of you is ready to reveal itself, come to the surface and be seen, it means you are now ready to face it and provide healing. That’s why for so many of us motherhood triggers many of our inner shadows. The child or many versions of the child within you, comes to the surface via the experience of parenting your own children. It’s spectacular. Often so challenging and at times painful, but beautiful nonetheless. Why? Because we get to reparent ourself. In doing so. We heal that wounded child within and redirect the course of our life, how we show up daily, our experience of motherhood, womanhood and LIFE. From there this redirects and shifts how YOU PARENT your own child. Shaping a more positive pathway for your little one, and in doing so positively shaping the impact your child has on this world.

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 034  – Why we cannot avoid struggles and challenges, but we can show up spiritually in the face of hardship. Bushfires are raging through our country and many of us, especially those in the spiritual/self development world are faced with how to SHOW up, take action, pay attention and yet still be a “spiritual being having a human experience…” Firstly, spiritual bypassing is not the way. We cannot ignore what’s going on in the world, in our homes and families and around us by only focusing on being LOVE and LIGHT only. We can take action in some way, privately or publicly. In a small way or a big way. Whatever way feels good and true for you. As a coach, I never,  ever say to my clients that doing spiritual work, raising your vibration, focusing on love and light will leave you immune to suffering, hardship, struggle. For many reasons: 1. Your personal soul journey might experience growth through struggle. 2. Struggle leads to gold that can be mined, always. 3. Human experience is to dive into all sides – shadow and light. That’s what you’re here for. 4. You cannot prevent struggles and challenges happening to those around you, your community, your world. And if you think you are immune to it, i’m sorry, you’re wrong. Even as mamas we witness this daily – we cannot protect our children from every struggle and hurt and challenge. We aren’t meant to – that’s how they grow. As a Coach, there is something I do focus on – how can I help you learn, practice and be armed up with spiritual, energetic, emotional, mental, physical tools to support yourself through hard times. To level up. To manage your energetic boundaries, to ground yourself, to calm your nervous system, to pray, to meditate, to clear your blocks and beliefs and fears. The Relationship with coach and client is like a guide or map reader in the driver of a car. You drive. you are the driver, always, but I am there to give you the directions. To suggest the short cut, or perhaps even the long road to where you want to go. Navigate the bumps and the confusing roads ahead. Keeping you cool and calm and collected when you feel lost.  And also just holding space for when you lose your shit and encouraging you to pull over and pause. We can use our spiritual tools to navigate hard times. To face our challenges. To be present, loving and high vibrational AND positive despite the shadow we feel we are in. That’s how we find the light again. Listen to Episode 034: Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.

One Woke Mama – Episode 030 – Rage, Resentment and Releasing it with a daily anger practice

One Woke Mama – Episode 030 – Rage, Resentment and Releasing it with a daily anger practice

Posted November 24, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 030 – Rage, Resentment and Releasing it with a daily anger practice Rage and resentment comes up at different times during our motherhood journey. Sometimes we are triggered by our children, or we are depleting and run down, lacking self care, or deep in the trenches with sick children. We can feel tapped out and then what follows is a leaking out of emotions and feelings we’ve tried to suppress. And it can sometimes get ugly. Our own stories come up to play – the Martyr or Victim roles (or both) and the ego emotions connected to it all. I explore how resentment shows up, why it shows up, how it can leak out of us and the following guilt and shame that comes with that out pouring of rage and resentment. In this episode I dive further into how we can cultivate a daily ANGRY practice that actually serves us to release these pent up emotions in a safe, harmless way – not directed on others but simply allow the body to release it, instead of storing it. I share why this is so important for our own health, wellbeing and how we show up and be in the world. I also share why an angry practice will bring you back into presence, connection, nervous system regulation, sanity!

One Woke Mama – Episode 029 – The Final Frontier; healing my pelvic floor and finding the Forgotten Feminine within.

Posted November 03, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 029 – The Final Frontier; healing my pelvic floor and finding the Forgotten Feminine within. Episode 029 explores what I call the Final Frontier in my post partum healing journey – healing the pelvic floor, pelvic organ prolapse and on a more spiritual and energetic level coming to face The Forgotten Feminine. I share, quite vulnerably and candidly my journey with Pelvic Organ Prolapse – I explain what it is, what I did and didn’t know what POP, my journey of healing and how it’s led me to face the disconnection of my inner feminine energy and power. This was a very raw, in real-time, authentic conversation about where I currently am on this journey of healing. There are tears shed as I speak the truth of my inner divine feminine and her sadness at being cut-off, numbed out, ignored and disconnected. This is a conversation that all women need to hear. Please tune in, listen with love, compassion and respect. And share it along to your mama friends. Listen to Episode 029: Show notes: I mention the work of Christine Kent – The Whole Woman. I also share the core technique – Hypopressive P.s google away but be careful of what you read. This is still an underground technique although based on an ancient yogic breath, there is not a lot of ‘official research’ – which doesn’t bother me at all, but be wary when you go down the rabbit hole! And here is where I did my Hypopressive workshop in Sydney – Core Tone Fitness I also purchased and occasionally use this Pelvic Floor trainer – KGoal I did the Mutu System program for deep core healing and re-activation I also highly recommend you visit a holistically minded pelvic floor physiotherapist and do so regularly during pregnancy and postpartum Get my Om Mama Love Meditation Bundle HERE 12 Meditation Track and 12 Affirmation Cards – $49 Join The Alchemy of Emotional Freedom Online EFT Masterclass LIVE Round commencing November 11th Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.

One Woke Mama – Episode 027 – Resourcing Yourself And Stretching Your Window Of Tolerance

Posted October 20, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 027 – Resourcing Yourself And Stretching Your Window Of Tolerance A comment from a friend got me thinking about why some women, some mothers, need more space, time and tools to refuel and re-centre and why others don’t?  I explore how we are each hardwired a little differently – how the base line state of our nervous system affects how we process and handle experiences in life – such as the relentless and sometimes exhausting days within motherhood. Motherhood forces us to stretch and grow. Some of us find this stretching process to be a gentle one. Perhaps we are don’t find daily life so taxing, others like me can find it really depleting. In this episode I explore WHY we might be different – embodiment, the state of our nervous system, history of trauma affecting our individual window of tolerance and our own stories, beliefs and patterns that shape our being within the world. I also share how we can stretch ourselves to cope and to be in a more resilient, grounded, centred and peaceful state. Using resources, wellness practices, tools and Somatic exercises we can ‘arm’ ourselves up to expand our bandwith, to spend more time in the Optimal Arousal Zone – the space that is centered between the extremes of our nervous system.

One Woke Mama – Episode 025 – Connection. Nervous System Regulation. Childhood Wounds And Trauma

One Woke Mama – Episode 025 – Connection. Nervous System Regulation. Childhood Wounds And Trauma

Posted October 07, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 025 – Connection. Nervous System Regulation. Childhood Wounds And Trauma The way we connect with our children – through our eye contact, voice, body language – can have a huge impact on how they learn to regulate their own nervous system. They are plugged into OUR energy field, our nervous system. And a chemical reaction ensures that their own PHYSICAL body responds to future experiences and challenges based on how we connect with our children, how we personally show up to experiences and challenges and how regulated we are in our nervous system. In today’s episode I dive into a mixed bag – looking at the power of connection, that oxytocin exchange and how it does more than just make us FEEL GOOD, the way we teach our children how to regulate their nervous system and therefore how we do the same for ourselves. I share examples and personal stories before diving a little further into childhood trauma and wounding – and how WHAT we learn as children about being in the world, showing up with our own regulated or dysregulated nervous affects how we COPE with experiences, challenges and difficult situations. This is an important conversation for us mamas because it shows that we can simply create a supportive and empowered container to hold our children through the inevitable challenges of life, and in learning to do this for our children we learn to heal our own wounds and traumas.

One Woke Mama – Episode 024 – Just because your partner parents differently to you doesn’t mean they are wrong

One Woke Mama – Episode 024 – Just because your partner parents differently to you doesn’t mean they are wrong

Posted September 16, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 024 – Just because your partner parents differently to you doesn’t mean they are wrong The latest One Woke Mama episode dives into how we often parent differently to our partners, and how that might just be ok. In fact, perfect. Perhaps your partner, in his/her opposite parenting isn’t wrong, but actually offers something that you cannot offer to your child/children. I’ve been aware of and working on my judgements of my husband doing parenting differently to me. And all the ways that shows up. Including how I sometimes try and “teach” him my way – on a bad day this can look like me making suggestions of other things he could do or say to my daughter particularly. What is this born from? It’s fascinating when I sit back and review it objectively. And when I feel into my body, during the very moments when I’m reacting and attempting to parent him, I can see that I am in a state of control. I am controlling his parenting because on some level I don’t trust his parenting. I don’t trust his parenting because we come to believe that our way is the only way, is the right way. That only WE could possibly know what’s right for our child. After all we are their mother, right? And the fascinating thing about not trusting someone else and how they parent is that underlying that lack of trust is a deep fear – a fear of not doing the best for our child. a fear of completely fucking them up. A fear of seeing them hurt, damaged, broken. Or in some way unfulfilled in their potentially, emotionally abused. But the truth is, we can’t avoid the hurts and challenges they will face, whether at our own hand (we are human and learning on the job) or at the hands of others, or simply life it self. We can however equip them to cope, to manage, to show up, to feel, to process, to learn and grow from it all. Listen in to learn how I have come to a place of peace with the differences in my partner’s parenting.

One Woke Mama – Episode 021 – Why it’s OK to say NO to your children

One Woke Mama – Episode 021 – Why it’s OK to say NO to your children

Posted August 27, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama – Episode 021 – Why it’s OK to say NO to your children As mothers saying NO to our children is not something we are always comfortable with. When we are programmed to believe we are responsible for their ever need, want, desire – their emotional, mental and physical well being – then practising the art of saying NO to your child may not initially be an easy process. I share how I’ve slowly learned the power and importance and art of saying NO to my children (in certain times and situations) and why it’s necessary. Saying No to your child will teach them many things. It Teaches them to honour their capacity. To respect other ppl and be a citizen of the world. Becoming more Empathetic. Teaches them they are OK just sometimes other ppl can’t be there for them and this in turn teaches resilience… But it’s important as a mama as well to be able to hold our energy and our boundaries, to be strong in our decisions and to do some from a place of love and respect. Honouring their needs, seeing their desires but also honouring your capacity to provide and hold space for those needs. It teaches us mamas to constantly be self-referencing and looking after ourselves, not just in automatic pilot mode – putting their needs first and forgetting our own. I do a lot of checking in with myself – if I’m capable of holding space for my children and connecting I do, fully, but I’m also not afraid to tell her if I don’t have the capacity right now to be what she needs or offer what she wants. I’ll give her a framework/guidance as to what and when I can meet her needs. We talk about mamas love bucket inside that’s a bit empty so I need some quiet, yoga, meditation, tea or whatever so I can come back online and ready to serve and be fully with her. She gets it. Other times I crack it and then use it as a way to teach authenticity, showing up as my raw human self and all my flaws. “I’m sorry I snapped honey. I can see I’m a bit tender, off and worn out today… it wasn’t nice to snap at you. It didn’t feel good to do that but I can see I need xxx and you need yyy… let’s find a way together.” Saying NO offers a lot of growth, for all parties involved. Tune in to learn more and discover for yourself how and why saying NO can empower you. Listen to Episode 021: Subscribe: Itunes | Soundcloud Beautiful one, thank you for being here and listening.
