Answering the Question, "Why Won't You Go to Sleep?"

Answering the Question, "Why Won't You Go to Sleep?"

If there’s one question I’ve heard time and time again from the parents I work with it it’s this - Why Won’t My Child Go the **** to Sleep? The f-bomb is often dropped because by the time parents reach me, they’ve already passed through the stages of trying to remain all zen and peace-like. I’m about to share with you one of the secrets I share with these families that makes a shift and brings a sense of calm back to bedtime.

When you have a child who simply won't go to sleep, no matter how much money you’ve spent on room darkening shades and white noise machines, this question haunts you well into the morning hours.

These questioning thoughts turn into, “What is wrong with my child”, and then to, “What is wrong with me?” Sometimes, when feeling really vulnerable, parents admit they question if being a parent is what they really wanted.

What My 3-Year-Old Taught Me About Generational Healing, Posted on Huffington Post Parents

{Originally posted on Huffington Post} As I spoke these words to my husband, "I can't do this today. You deal with him," I cringed. Please no, I don't want that to be my truth. I give so much of my soul to my children and like all parents, my wish is that I can guide them to be their best selves.

SHIFTING TV: Women Supporting Women in this Parenting Journey with Katie Chiaravolloti

There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t feel intense gratitude for my friends and the women I walk with on this path of parenting. And yet, finding this support did not come easily to me. Allowing feelings of shame and blame kept me from being real and open to others. Accepting that others parent differently than I and being ok with all the ways we are raising children opened up the way to more meaningful relationships and finding real support.

That’s why I am so invested in everything Katie Chiaravolloti says. Because it touches a place deep within as she explores how we can find empathy for ourselves. So that we can have emotionally honest conversations with our partner, children and those around us.

When I am struggling, is it really ok to express it?

What’s coming up is Katie’s journey as she stepped into her light and power over years of transformation. As she learned to be in it, this life, with herself and her family even when times are despairing.

Then she takes us to the root of knowing our authentic self and how being empathetic allows us to have real conversations.

Last, it’s the piece that when women come together, we are so powerful. As we remember the old ways, the sitting in circle and the healing that happens, we are opening up to new energy, new ways, to live on this path of parenthood.

I ask of you, what does support look like to you? How are you empathetic to your situation and your path? And what parts are you now willing to accept in yourself, and in that reflection that comes from others? Please share below your story.

As your story will surely touch the heart of many.

Much gratitude for reading, for sharing, for watching, for being here on this journey with me.

ShiftingTV - Essential Oil Care for Your Family with Courtney Stern

Are you secretly wishing for magic potion in a bottle to cure your woes? To ease your ailments? While I can't promise you magic, I can promise you, there's an oil for that.

When I first met Courtney I just knew she was bringing it to the table. She’s genuine, funny, and really cares about educating parents on essential oil use. One of the best quotes of the night taping with Courtney was offline and it's, "when your child doesn't feel well, they don't act well". This was a shiftable moment for me. Now when my son (or less often, my daughter) is acting out of character, or acting out at all, I stop and ask myself, could he be feeling off? And the answer is often, "yes". I've experienced the shifts originated with essential oil use with my 3 year old and it's brillant!

This episode is a must watch if you are looking to shift some emotions or bring your body back into balance.

EPISODE #1: ESSENTIAL OIL CARE FOR YOUR FAMILY

In this episode, Courtney teaches us how essential oils can get us back into balance and feeling well. Stick around to see how her three year old feels empowered using oils, the safety and ease of oil use and there's also a great tidbit on getting through seasonal allergies... and so much more!

My gut tells me if you’ve already been using essential oils in your life, you have some great stories to share on your success. So I ask of you, comment below and share. It just may be the story to move someone else on their own journey of healing. Together, as a community, we can shift into a higher vibration.

Much gratitude to you for your energy and time. If you gained some insight or shared your success story in the comments, don’t stop there. Send this video to any friends and family you think could use this as a shiftable moment. #theshiftthatmatters
