Spiritual Parenting

Dear friend,

spiritual parenting, parenting with awareness

Spiritual parenting is based on the intention to love, support and guide our children to what is best for them on all levels – body, mind, emotion and spirit. We divinely create these beautiful beings with Goddess’s grace, birthing them into the world.

Loving my three children has been the easy part of parenting for me these last thirty-four years. Spiritual parenting them has been quite a challenge, though. It involves much praying, asking for guidance from the Divine and understanding the inspired message of Kahlil Gibran in “Children” from the book “The Prophet.”

We cannot hold onto our children nor impose our visions upon them as they have their own paths, their own visions. Spiritual parenting teaches me to let go of my own limiting beliefs about what I think is best for my children.


Spiritual Parenting, Parenting with Awareness

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, “Speak to us of Children.”
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
Spiritual Parenting, Parenting with AwarenessYou are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

As I read “Children” once again I am reminded to let go and allow my arrows to live their lives, sometimes fall on their face, be there to comfort them and to cheer them on as they soar once again with the grace of their own Higher Power leading the way. Thank you beloved Father, Mother God for blessing me with three arrows, my teachers.

Intuitive Readings Seattle – Reiki Healing Seattle – Meditation Seattle 

For more than 29 years I have been helping many people from all walks of life and across the world, including India, China and England. Some clients prefer to come see me in person for an Intuitive Reading. However, the majority of my clients call me for phone sessions.

Intuition is unlimited as God is unlimited so it doesn’t matter whether you are in the same room with me or in Hong Kong! My intention is the same – to serve as a channel of clarity and healing to assist you in all areas of your life. Doing this work makes me truly happy and I blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

When you set up an Intuitive Reading in Seattle or a phone session with me, it’s best to write down your questions ahead of time. This helps focus your intention on what it you want guidance for in your life.

At the beginning of your Intuitive Reading, I go deep into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for you. The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures and the information received is spiritual in nature, yet practical for every day life.

I encourage all of you to:
