In one way or another the way we were parented affects the way we parent. It’s unavoidable. We either recreate old patterns or swing the pendulum so far to the opposite extreme from what our parents did, that we feel like we’re flying by the seat of our pants. Often we do both, and either way we will beat ourselves up for recreating the stuff that hurt us deeply as children, or we doubt our parenting choices as we try to do something so radically different that we’re not even sure WHAT is the right “way.”
If we are able to get clear enough of mental chatter we CAN parent intuitively – meeting the needs of each individual child and helping them learn and grow peacefully to their full potential. The more childhood “baggage” we can release, the clearer and clearer we can get, allowing us to hear that Inner Voice of Wisdom that is telling us what our children need and how we can best help them.
There are many ways to clear away the baggage and release old patterns that don’t wish to create with our children. The Work by Byron Katie is one of the most powerful, yet simple, tools to achieve this.
Let’s show up for our children by showing up for ourselves! In this workshop session at the Radiant Living & Learning Retreat Daphne Osunlade Edwards will lead us through an inquiry process using The Work on how we were or weren’t parented. Let’s end our internal war, hurt and shame of our OWN childhoods by working to release our stories about our primary caregivers. Doing this simple, yet profound process can help us get a few steps closer to being the parent we want to be for our kids. We are all a work in progress!
