Life As A Conscious Mom

Life As A Conscious Mom


Friday Wisdom is shared from Christine Agro’s Conscious Living Wisdom Cards (Special Moms’ Edition) Each Deck has 42 cards and a booklet that offer insight and guidance for parenting consciously.

Insight Card #14 in The Conscious Living Wisdom Cards (Special Moms’ Edition)


Today I drew the INSIGHT Card.

I love this card. In the ‘For Your Child’ text below you’ll see why. I believe that our kids can have the best and most clear insight. It’s free from prejudice and programming and it often comes from a place of true inner knowing or connection to  the higher senses. With Caidin there have been many of these moments. He will say something that is so crystal clear and so poignant it can take my breath away.


What Would Ever Possess A Child To Be So Mean?

I was recently teaching a class to my Advanced 12 Month Conscious Awareness group and we were looking at the energy and information that we carry related to how others see us and interact with us.

As we were exploring I was reminded of my older brother’s favorite chant when he was little “You’re stupid, fat and ugly” which was usually followed by a ‘thunder thighs’ comment.


For whatever reason, I was able to know in my own right that I was not stupid, but on the body image side, I bought in hook, line and sinker.

To this day, I still see larger thighs, no matter what they actually look like. What’s interesting is that I can know that they are not huge, but when I look in the mirror, they look gigantic. I just ignore the mirror image.

But what possess people, young or old, to say things like this?


6 Things We Can Learn From Glue

Caidin got a bag full of foam bits and beads at a birthday party. It’s been sitting in our ‘catch-all’ draw for several months now, but a few nights ago (as a bedtime delay tactic) he got it out and asked me if he could put it together. I asked him what he would need to do it and he said ‘just some glue.’

‘Ok, but this is your project,’ I said. ‘Ok, Mom.’ He worked through piecing together quite a bit before he called me for some help.


When I got to the construction scene, I found some green object completely saturated in glue. It made me laugh. Kids love to use a lot of glue. I said, ‘well, first of all, this is too much glue. You only need a little for things to stick.’ ‘Really?’ he asked incredulously. He was also upset because the green foam was barely visible through the massive coating of glue. I suggested he get a damp paper towel so that we could wipe off most of the glue. When I told him that the glue would dry clear, he was surprised.


9/11 Becomes A Conversation About Tolerance and Freedom

Although I promised I would be back this week with Tuesdays Naturally, I would rather share my morning conversation with Caidin which was about the attacks on the United States, September 11th,  2001.  It started out a conversation about actions and evolved into a conversation about tolerance and freedom.

We have talked about September 11th in the past, but each time we discuss it, Caidin has greater awareness and much more of his own information so each time, the conversation is different.

Today Caidin wanted me to tell him again what happened. I went through the story of the planes being flown into the World Trade Towers, and about the two additional planes that were headed for Washington D.C.

Where Have I Been?
It’s such a simple question, but such an involved question. December was a particularly challenging month for Caidin and it made me stop and reflect on this blog. I love sharing information, insight and guidance and my ‘way’ has always been to share real life stories. I think they help y

The NRA Wants Armed Gunmen In The Schools
I'm sorry, but when, how, why and in what world, does the NRA have any say into what happens in our schools. Their push to put armed gunmen in schools is unfathomable to me. Schools take considerable precautions today, ones we wish they didn't have to. But really, if a school system feels the
