Lose the label, find the child. Reframing Aspergers.

  “It’s time to take joy in everything that our kids are.”- Dan Pearce. Single Dad Laughing So you have a child with Aspergers. If you are looking for sympathy you’re in the wrong place.  If you are looking for empathy and a way to release yourself and your child from destructive victim energy, you’re right on time; you’re perfectly aligned. Diversity is everything. It brings beauty, it builds love, it facilitates change; it’s a crucial part of evolution. Believing that divergence is a problem is the real problem. Buying into the idea that there are ‘norms’ is destructive and unhelpful. Choosing to re-frame differences is empowering, it breeds acceptance (especially self-acceptance), it cultivates tolerance and literally creates new worlds and enhanced, enlightened […]

Love is all we need: The narrow isthumus of love and fear.

You cannot say you truly love your child and fear for them. This is a hard one I know.  In my early years of parenting I was all about their protection.  That was my job surely? I was the mother who got all riled up if there was any morsel of injustice or potential danger in the room.  I was the mother who was compelled to fight my corner whether it was in the classroom with the teacher, in the doctors office, with the media, or even with my spouse.  I was passionate. I was I thought, brimming with full bodied love for my precious ones. And then one day I had an epiphany.  It was a little biblical; a bolt of […]

Solstice Spiralling. The three C’s: Crystalline grids, Cetaceans and Children.

” The light of the Sun which illuminates the whole Universe, which is present in the moon and in fire likewise- Know that splendour to be mine.’ – Krishna.  The Bhagavad Gita This is the perfect quote to encapsulate the current Solstice, Planetary and evolutionary processes at work right now. We have just moved fully into the Solstice.  For Northern climes it indicates the longset day of the year and for the  Southern Hemisphere we have the shortest day. Spiritually it is a marker in the year for change.  In addition, for the first time in 70 years we have a full moon; a Strawberry Moon too, in the firey but intensely spiritual constellation of Sagittarius. Arrows tipped with fire are poised on […]

All they need is love. Mirror, mirror on the wall….

All they need is LOVE.. A trite, over worn statement perhaps, but almost maddening in its’ simple truth. Parenting was never meant to be hard. We made it so. So what IS this love that we say our children need?   It’s in the ruffling of their hair as you go past them doing their homework.   It’s in the learning to let go of judgment even when it masks itself as good intentioned.  Judgment isn’t the work of love. It breeds division, destruction and distance.   It’s in the seams of the costume for the school play you work on into the late hours of the nigh,t even when you can’t sew.   It’s in the breast that you offer the […]
