One Woke Mama -Episode 019 – What I’ve Learned About Baby Sleep

One Woke Mama -Episode 019 – What I’ve Learned About Baby Sleep

Posted August 07, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama -Episode 019 – What I’ve Learned About Baby Sleep In Episode 019 I share what I’ve personally learned about Baby Sleep. After two children with poor sleeping and settling behaviour I’ve tried everything and experienced so much more. This is not a practical exploration on HOW to get your baby to sleep better, there is enough information out there from the ‘experts’. No, this is a deep dive into the psycho-emotional-spiritual aspect of baby sleep and how, i feel, at the very core of the challenge is YOU – the mother. As I’ve discovered is the case for me. Through my children’s sleep patterns I was presented a huge mirror, a powerful reflection – showing many unhealed parts of me. Taking me to my edge, over and over. It quickly showed me that the years of meditation and self development work were a beautiful balm, but they had only touched the top layer of healing. I had to go deep. In this episode I share: My personal experience with both babies. I share how my spiritual practices stopped working for me and how I knew then that I had to dig deeper into healing. The many factors that come into play from behaviour, development, teething, growth spurts, sickness etc. Sleep training Rafael and how I involved him in the process of discussion and decision I explore what the common denominator was between both children and their sleep patterns I touch on birth, genetics and how these effect sleep How it all comes back to the nervous system What a dysregulated, over active nervous system means emotionally through the lens of a baby (and your sub conscious too!) How babies take on our story and programming through their interconnectedness to our energy, nervous system, emotions. Why sleep training won’t always work and what needs to happen to ensure it does Why it all comes back to you, the mama!

One Woke Mama – Episode 018 – It’s time to show up for your tribe

Posted August 04, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood One Woke Mama -Episode 018 – It’s time to show up for your tribe In Episode 018 I explore the layers or tribe, the village and support. I dive into the tribe online. How our society has carved out a different way for us to connect and how it has also changed the village vibe that we all so need and crave. I also look at the importance of letting others parent our children and support us through that shared experience of parenting. When our children have an extended circle of aunties, uncles, grandparents, neighbours to share the load we can see how that shapes who they are, teaches them about the world, about compassion and also about connection. It also allows us to rest in and accept the support of others and to fully embrace the truth that we aren’t meant to be all things to all people – particularly our children. I also shine a light on where and how you might be co-dependant and weighed down by expectations that your partner or other close family member must support you and be everything to you – in every way. Which is unrealistic, disempowering and ultimately leaves you insecure about your ability to cope and handle motherhood. I explore and ask: How does tribe benefit us? How does it benefit ourselves? How do we cultivate and find our tribe considering the way our society is now structured? How do we face up to our co-dependancy and expectations of another’s support? How do we take back ownership for our needs and cultivate our own version of the village? How do we call in our own tribe? Are you waiting for your tribe to find you or is it time for you to show up for your tribe? +++ Show notes: Click here to join my EFT Masterclass (live round commences August 11th) – The Alchemy of Emotional Freedom My new online masterclass that will teach you the powerful, yet simple tools of EFT combined with Chakras, White Light and Essential Oils.

One Woke Mama – Episode 015 – Mama, You Are Meant To Fall Flat On Your Face. That’s How You Grow.

Posted July 21, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood Mama, You Are Meant To Fall Flat On Your Face. That’s How You Grow. In Episode 015 I talk on the power and importance of embracing the falls and struggles we experience during our Motherhood journey. There is no linear experience where you start at the beginning, complete a obstacle pathway and find yourself at the holy grail, the miraculous end point where you ‘know” everything and have nailed this motherhood thing. Nope, it’s a rolling experience – it is an never ending ride of highs and lows. And mostly, we do alot of navigating blindly through the dark, falling often, stumbling and tripping. We might sail through for a while cruising along and things are going well until another upleveling is required. We are taken to our edge to face our own inner wounds through our children (perhaps their tantrums trigger you, or their incessant talking, or constant winter sickness…) And there we find ourselves face down in the dirt again. WHY am I sharing this? Not to paint a bleak picture. No quite the opposite… to actually show you how beautiful this journey of growth is. You get to repeatedly grow yourself up!

One Woke Mama – Episode 013 –  The Contrasts of Motherhood – from surrender to stillness and from new beginnings, starting up and taking action.

Posted June 28, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood The Contrasts of Motherhood – from surrender to stillness and from new beginnings, starting up and taking action. I am constantly in this push and pull within motherhood. I am in constant negotiation with the many different energies and attitudes and experiences that motherhood has called out of me. Are you, too? It is something that I have to stay with – to stay in the centre of these contrasts. And I want to shine a light on these contrasts to bring value and appreciation for all sides of this multifaceted experience. There are so many ways that motherhood takes shape. It cannot be one thing, it cannot be one thing forever… it will always shift and morph and change. In Episode 012 I  talk you through the contrasts that I have experienced and sometimes experience within one day – actually, definitely experience within one day. From the deeply surrendered experiences to the action-packed, taking charge energy. Starting up Versus Slowing Down. From embodying the Divine Feminine energy of presence, power and flow to the Divine Masculine where we take action, and move forward, solving problems and getting shit done. Tune in to hear more about these contrasts and how we can make all sides of the motherhood journey work for us.

One Woke Mama – Episode 012 – When We Tidy And Fuss To Much Instead Of Being Present And Connected

One Woke Mama – Episode 012 – When We Tidy And Fuss To Much Instead Of Being Present And Connected

Posted June 23, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood When We Tidy And Fuss To Much Instead Of Being Present And Connected Oh my, the chaos of the kids can be overwhelming. You know what I’m talking about right? With a now moving and climbing toddler and a 4.5 yo that wants to draw and do more focused work – the clash of their needs. Their demands of me, my body, my attention and my service. I find I flit around the house tidying up around them, packing up, clearing, putting on laundry. Keeping busy. Yes, getting things done. Important things that keep this ship afloat. The breakfast, the supplements, the clothes and shoes and jackets and boots. But if I’m honest, some of this – alot of this – is a coping mechanism. A way to stay distracted and to avoid the exhaustion in my bones, keep the frustration at bay, to forget that the connection with myself is unthreading with every day in motherhood that I forget to (or can’t) tune into me and my needs Distraction. So I’ve been watching this within myself. With a sense of fascination. With a sense of curiosity. If we can’t hold ourselves in the energy of observation and curiosity then we’ll spiral into despair and disappointment and our ego will take hold and start labelling everything as bad, horrible, not good – including self judgment and all that comes with that. So whilst holding myself in this awareness state I’ve started to question what would happen if I did things a little differently? Not everyday – no need to add more things on my ‘must perfect’ list. But just to trial a new way of showing up. A more embodied way, present, out of my head and totally ok to feel whatever I am feeling without reacting and without distracting. What would happen if I let the toys pile up?www If I let them be and completely run amuck? What would happen if I slowed up? Showed up. Or didn’t, just held space? What does non-attachment and surrender look like during the mundane daily moments of my life? What does it feel like to observe and just be without taking action – fixing, repairing, fussing? Which is a form of laying my anxiety on my children by suffocating their space and their experience.

One Woke Mama – Episode 010 – Yes, there is a word for the transition of motherhood. Matresence with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz

One Woke Mama – Episode 010 – Yes, there is a word for the transition of motherhood. Matresence with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz

Posted June 09, 2019

One Woke Mama – The journey of awakening through motherhood This interview with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz from Happy Mama has been a conversation on the cards for some time. Amy is one of my closest friends and this chat is a direct insight into how we ‘talk’ – the type of reflection, exploration and discussion that we have, mama to mama. We dive into Matresence, the ‘word’ that encapsulates the mind altering, body reshaping, soul uncovering journey that is the transition from maiden to mother. I cannot describe to you the relief and excitement I felt when I first heard the word Matresence. And I know Amy shares the same relief, joy and connection to this container that allows us to be seen, known, heard and fully understood as women who are in deep transformation in every way. Yes, there is a WORD that describes the transition from maiden to mother. The depths of transformation that a woman experiences once she becomes a mother knows no bounds, limitations or a time-frame. And it is a rite of passage that is just as important and powerful as any other – birth, adolescence, menstruation, marriage, death. But it is not a passage that is honoured nearly enough. This conversation with Amy Taylor-Kabbaz from Happy Mama on the transitory experience of Matresence –  where our identify complete shifts and the old girl/woman falls away – is a mind blowing conversation filled with powerful insights, a new paradigm, and a wisdom that will hold you through motherhood. This word, this anthropological term will shift your perspective and help you ditch self judgment around the space you are in. Listen to Episode 010 In this episode we cover: Where the term Matresence came from. What Matresence actually means. An understanding of the analogy of Matresence and how it relates to Adolesence How Matresence affects everything within and without you How Matresence acknowledges this massive identify shift. How valuing Matresence helps women accept and embrace their experience Holding space for each other, mama to mama, society to women Why this word rang so true for Amy What Amy has been trying to figure out for a decade Some of Amy’s KEY feelings experienced in her own transitional journey. Amy’s personal struggles with journeying from maiden to mother. How Matresence is a ‘thing’ and why we need to give women permission to experience it as it is How rituals help us in our Matresence season Why it is so important and necessary for us women to be more educated on this stage of life. How society as a whole could  benefit from including ‘matresence’ in our thinking/understanding/conversation. Why understanding Matresence changes our experience of motherhood and beyond. What we lose by NOT embracing this season of Matresence. What does Amy ultimately want to see when it comes to Matresence in the wider community. What Amy is currently working on – when it comes to your Mind, Body, Soul What Amy is most grateful for from motherhood has delivered you How we can support Amy and her work in the world Show Notes Connect with Amy Amy Taylor-Kabbaz is a writer, producer, speaker and mother to three young children. After more than a decade covering breaking news and current affairs for the ABC around the country, her ‘traditional’ career took an unexpected turn when she found herself lost, overwhelmed and diagnosed with a thyroid condition after the birth of her first daughter. 11 years – and two more babies – later, she is now the author of the best-seling ‘Happy Mama: the guide to finding yourself’, the host of the ‘The Happy Mama Movement’ podcast, runs numerous online programs for mothers all over the world, is an international award-winning coach, the creator of the #1 itunes meditations for children ‘Bedtime Explorers’, and is currently working on her next two books, to be published with Hay House international.
