 “When someone shares something of value with you, and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.” ~Chinese Proverb

I have an intense fear of sharing my opinions or experiences. I am afraid of upsetting people or making them feel that I am trying to influence them so I err on staying quiet and trusting that my actions will speak louder. Yet this proverb has given me a bit of courage to share some things that sadly I feel judged upon.  Here is a list of things that have been shared with me and my family have benefited immensely from:

  • natural, conscious, peaceful, respectful, positive, attachment, child-honoring and trust-based parenting
  • Home birth
  • breastfeeding (throughout the night and extended)
  • co-sleeping/ family bed
  • no circumcision
  • baby sign language
  • cloth diapers
  • elimination communication
  • unschooling  http://www.naturalchild.org/guest/earl_stevens.html
  • yoga
  • meditation
  • Zumba
  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing  http://www.emdr.com/general-information/what-is-emdr/what-is-emdr.html
  • Individual and Couples Counseling
  • Reading self-help books
  • Mindfulness
  • the practice of Non-violence (in thoughts, actions, words) http://www.cnvc.org/
  • Vitalistic chiropractic care
  • acupuncture
  • herbalist
  • real food
  • trauma-informed care
  • neuroscience
  • epigenetics
  • essential oils
  • fasting
  • radical acceptance

This list is not exhaustive and what works for some will not work for everyone. I believe there are many ways to the same end point (equifinality) so there really is no wrong or right way. What matters most is being able to tune into your heart amongst all the noise of other’s opinions and egos, to follow your light, having an open mind, and that you make well-informed decisions that best meets your needs in compassionate and respectful ways. It’s how you do it and not specifically what you do.

What “LIGHT” means to me…

“But it will always be that the prophet is the first victim of his own message, and only later do people say, ‘Oh, now I understand.'” ~Joseph Girzone Joshua: A Parable for Today
