Sometimes when I am in a moment of quiet contemplation or meditation, I have the most inspired download of juicy ideas.
At the times when I am most desiring peace and for my mind to slow down its activities, I am flooded with insight.
I love that when I create some space to get still and silent, the Universe says
‘here you go honey-ponder this’!
Recently whilst settling into my meditation, I started thinking about the time a mama has for her spiritual practise and how the whole idea of this changes when raising little ones.
Life as a full time mama is busy with a capital B.
Gently and lovingly guiding a little soul is a beautiful yet often exhausting journey with many ebbs and flows.
To be always fully present, kind and compassionate can be a challenge regardless of what the moment presents.
To do this with my 3 year old when she is in the midst of a mini meltdown at the end of a long day forces me to draw on every spiritual practise I know to get us through the moment relatively unscathed, and, ideally, with me left feeling that I have honoured both our needs without stepping out of alignment with my own personal brand of parenting philosophy.
