This is a GREAT one for the kids! My oldest woke up a big grumpy this morning. Nothing major, just a bit meh. She didn't want porridge, she didn't want cereal, toast, anything. The thing is, we all have off days, kids and adults. Me letting her just get on with it wasn't helping either. So we sat down and I told her mind was a bit like the weather. The thoughts and emotions will pass. So I asked what the weather was like in her head and she said STORMY ☔🌪️⛈️⚡We talked about how feelings, like the weather, will pass. She sat and ate her porridge on her own and sure enough the weather did pass 🌤️☀️🌡️🌨️🌤️🌈
Same applies in labour. The moments of difficult emotions will pass. Soon that wave 🌊 will have passed and you'll have a moment of calm. Sometimes just acknowledging them is enough to move the weather along.
If you're pregnant and keen to learn more, I'm holding afternoon hypnobirthing workshops on 17 February and 17 March in #teddington. We go through ALL the hypnobirthing essentials - it's not a full antenatal classes but I've done some fabulous mini courses with private clients who haven't had time for a full course, aren't sure if it's for them or are already doing another antenatal course ❤️. You still get FULL access to the client resources area of my website which has loads of resources, videos/recaps from me, exercises to do at home, signposting to other sources of information. It's really comprehensive (or it will be when it's live!!) The mini course maybe just requires a little more homework from you 🤓 but you will come away feeling totally 💪 😊 🙌🌈 about birth. Places filling up already!
If you're keen to find out more about my @mindfulmagicmovement Mindful Magic kids classes, let me know and I'll send you all the details before they go on my website ☀️ I'm SO SO excited about these classes. They are really fun, creative, interactive, with some fab but gentle messages to take away 😊
