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 […]

Gems and white doves: The Supermoon and it’s charge (of the light brigade).

Umbilika’s purpose is not solely dedicated to the raising of children in the traditional sense, but also deeply connected to the raising of Consciousness per se.  The two go very much hand in hand. Parenting FOR and Parenting (bringing forth) A New Reality, is central to its’ passion. Being the bridge between outworn ideologies and new paradigms is paramount. It is clear that recent events culminating in the surprise outcome of the US elections have sent a tectonic wave of shock that is reverberating across the whole of the World and through all of us leaving us feeling bewildered, shattered and even homeless.  The Refugee Crisis has hit us all. What we thought was safe has been bombed.  The masses are suffering from […]

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 […]

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 […]
