You get so frustrated with your child.
You love them and yet, you get so angry with them
Sometimes, you truly dislike them and that fills you with deep guilt.
And no matter what you do, you cannot seem to get them to mind you.
They seem so prickly, so ready to attack you or they seem so immune to you, no matter how angry you get – It is like you are speaking to a brick wall where nothing penetrates and so you keep trying and you feel more and more frustrated and disrespected… and guilty.
This is not how you envisioned your parenting would be.
And yet, here you are.
You on one side, your child on the opposing side and nothing seems to break the wall down between you.
YOu just cannot understand why they persist in being sooo darned difficult.
And you want to punish them, to FORCE THEM to see the error of their ways but it ain’t working.
Nothing you try is working
And you feel more and more distant from this child.
Stop for a moment, my love.
When last did you pay attention to your own heart?
When last did you pay attention to your own self?
I know, I know, I KNOW – what in the world has this to do with what is happening out there with your child?
If you cannot reach your own inner child, my love, you can be absolutely sure that you will never be able to reach your external child.
At some point in your life, you made the decision that it was safer to shut yourself down and well, my love, this is the fruit – a lack of connection with your own child.
You want to understand what is going on within your child, then get back in touch with your own heart, your own inner child.
NO, that does not mean you are going to be navelgazing while doing nothing practical about your relationship with your physical child. Neh, that is just the way of wimpy spiritual people.
For us, powerful ones, we know that the work occurs on the 2 fronts.
The inner work AND the outer work.
It is NEVER one or the other.
It is a willingness to face your own inner tensions that you have learnt to repress, suppress and pretend are not there.
It is only as you are willing to go deep within yourself, that you will begin to figure out the stuff happening within your child.
And I know it scares you to face yourself.
YOu might break and you have such a powerful act going on, right now, you don’t want to upset that.
Well, do you care to have a better relationship with your child or not?
The choice is yours.
You can keep blaming them for their silliness and childish inability to see things your way or you can take yourself to task and get to healing both your inner world and your outer relationship.
What will it be?
It is time to flick the switch to a free, fulfilled, financially abundant, love-drenched life.
Much Amazing Love
