“ 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 do not belong to you…” Kahlil Gibran
Children come into this world with their own soul and life path, we are simply here to love and guide them on their journey as well as support, nurture and help them find their own authentic way of expression and being.
When we have not made peace with our selves, our childhood and wounds we tend to project and try to fix what was done or not done to us through our own children. Don’t put your wounds onto your children it isn’t theirs to take on, it’s yours to be healed and cleared by you. This is expressed perfectly in Rabindranath’s quote, “Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time. “
We unconsciously repeat over and over , passing down through generation after generation the same story until one brave person from the tribe says , “ ENOUGH” I am going to do it different not only for me but for my children and the generations that follow. I am going to rip up my unhealthy roots and plant new ones that will create a healthy foundation to grow from.
We are at a crucial time, the state of the world is in crisis and it’s hands are in the future of our children. We must first heal our selves by becoming strong and solid in our own foundation. When we are not whole and grounded in our authentic selves we tend to look outside ourselves trying to fill the voids for what we lack from within. Once whole and complete we then can manifest and live from a place of truth instead of fear or lacking. No person, thing or child will ever be able to fix that wounded part of you … ONLY YOU CAN .
