Imprinting Trauma On Our Children

Imprinting Trauma On Our Children

As adults and parents to our children as much as it is feels our duty to help them each day with various tasks or through different challenges. Especially when young, it’s our responsibility, too, to do the emotional work on ourselves, so we don’t worry about Imprinting Trauma On Our Children or sufferings onto our children. 

Not only are they watching our every move, reactions/knee jerks and how we treat people, but they can *feel* our nervous systems inside each room of the house, even when we’re not there…

Whatever we don’t work on now (especially that which we are conscious that limits us), we continue to press our potentially limited current and/or past reality into our today families and into *their* future family…

Family first, to me, means the above.

It’s doing the work on our ourselves that pays dividends FOR them.

Our San Francisco Rickshaw Tour

Our San Francisco Rickshaw Tour

We are born adventurers —

This was a striking building which houses women and mothers who have left abusive situations.

Spending two hours this week on Our San Francisco Rickshaw Tour in The Mission to check out all the art in the area (recommend checking out the Airbnb experience with Kai) was a sweet string of colorful moments with Nolan.

The image at the top of this building (and throughout the whole of it) — wow.

I’ve carried a child, but the power of the art for me was connecting to my own mom, as she knew…she knew the story of those inside.

So much of our lives, lessons and understandings start right here in our first womb homes and it’s inspiring to know we can use our experiences (and the experiences of those who have gone before) to create the home within and with others that today we most want.

There’s vibrant life stuff at every turn, rickshaw or no rickshaw. But rickshaw! [Highly recommend Our San Francisco Rickshaw Tour. It was halk full of deep story, meaningful art for our time and even seat warmers.]

Mayan Ruins, Women’s Voices

Mayan Ruins, Women's Voices

Mayan Ruins, Women’s Voices. Connection. According to the Mayan calendar, known as the calendar of human life, 2021 is the year about wind, one that comes in and clears the old…

Connected to that, this year is also about communication, a wind from our mouths so to speak, sharing what it is that we need to say…to those we love or to the world.

The number associated with this year, the number nine, also represents women.

2021, then, the Mayan calendar says, being about the rising voice of women.

Here I am above with Josh and Nolan at some of the most important Mayan ruins in Guatemala two years ago (me = proudly Guatemalan).

They have their stance and I have mine.

And, maybe, rather simply, this tells a good chunk of the whole story…with the female voice comes a distinct wisdom, tone, clarity, connectivity, a distinct strength and ability to kick up a wind that finally changes what has been asking to no longer stay the same.

Success Is In Your Relationships

Success Is In Your Relationships

The work I do holds one core thing or theme at its candlelit center: everything in life is about the relationship you have / hold to it.

Everything in our lives comes back to relationship.

In brand identity work, though it might seem separate, much of what is helpful in growing businesses (or getting clear of the expression of that business out in action in the world) is to look at each of our relationships…

Connected to that, relationships to the people in our life, whether “good” or “bad”, as well as the relationship we have to the past, present or future can be / be-come our identity.

Specifically, the relationship we have to loss, death, heartbreak or disappointment of any kind is a relationship that can get in *between* our human relationships and creative success if we don’t look at each one of them long (look at each one of them loooong)…

No relationship in our lives…the relationship(s) with our kids, partner, friends, not even those with clients will go as deep or last as long if we don’t get on the other side of our traumas or hurts…it’s not possible.

Want more of anything else that you think has little to do with relationship? Nurture a better one (relationship) with how you feel, where that truly comes from and proceed accordingly!
