2012 – A Time of Change?

There’s been quite a bit of talk about 2012 and whether some dramatic change is going to face the world, the planet, each of us individually. I wanted to share a few thoughts about what I know, what I’ve read and what I personally choose to believe about this subject. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, keep reading! The Mayans were an ancient civilization that created a calendar (the Mayan calendar) which has been right about major shifts, climactic events over the past 5000 years on planet Earth. The calendar ends on the 21 December 2012. Hmmm. This has led many to question what might happen after that? Why does the calendar end then? Some have gone to extremes to say it’s the end of the world. (There’s an app in the iPhone store that counts down the days till then.) Astronomers factually state that on that same day, there is an alignment of planets that only happens every 26,000 years and could cause dramatic shifts in our Earth’s climate or poles, or magnetic fields. So, those two elements are what we know. Here is what I believe. The energy of 2012 is already happening now. Everyone can feel ...

Parenting Kids Through Times of Change

We live in transitional times. Each of us is affected by change, whether it be a job change, a relationship change, a financial change or even a health-related change. Kids feel these changes, too. They witness them closely. For example, often they are involved in the case of a divorce, a death or a move. I’ve found a few insights that can really make a difference when parenting children during these types of life events. Plus, my personal belief is that teaching them about change is one of the most fundamental life skills to impart to them to be prepared for the years when they’re growing up. Parents need to get comfortable with change, then your children will be comfortable, too. Kids are a lot less fragile through change than their parents are. Kids often simply reflect how you are feeling, so if they are acting out, it’s because you may have some emotions that aren’t being expressed. If they are anxious, it’s because you are, too, at some level. Think about it, at any moment, you are either being a warning or an example for your kids, how you eat, how you communicate, how you behave, everything you do. They see ...

Fabulous declaration!!

When someone says, "We're saying the same thing." Say, "We are not saying the same thing." When someone says, "Don't question, just have faith."
