Welcome! Thank you for visiting my page. It is my intention to support families through the awakening process so that they can better support their gifted child.
As a parent raising a gifted, highly sensitive & highly creative child, sharing what I have learned along this journey is my passion. These unique children and their parents have become very important to me, they hold a special place in my heart and in my life. It is said that passion grows out of an emotional experience or connection. My passion is supporting the social, emotional, and educational needs of gifted, highly sensitive, highly creative and other unique children. This starts with awakening the parent!
As parents, we have to wake up if we're going to stand up for our kids. Awakened parenting is an act of radical love that begins when we embrace our child exactly as they are and see them for exactly who they are.
WHAT IS GIFTED? AREN'T ALL CHILDREN GIFTED? I believe all children are special and have unique gifts to offer the world, but not all children are gifted. “Giftedness may manifest in one or more domains such as; intellectual, creative, artistic, leadership, or in a specific academic field such as language arts, mathematics or science.” as defined by National Association of Gifted Children. I would add spiritual to this list. Some of the most often observed characteristics of the spiritually gifted are empathy, integrity, introversion, autonomy, vision, commitment, and moral courage.
WHAT IS AWAKENED? We live most of our lives in misery, smiling on the outside, but in turmoil within, only finding happiness in short bursts when something good happens externally. When we live this way, it affects all those around us; family, friends, co-workers, etc.
It is time to start questioning the inner pain and turn to something beyond our eyes your SOUL, this is when the awakening begins. It is a process of healing your past pain, learning to love yourself, moving to a space of unconditional love, lifting your vibration, being in the space of gratitude, that you begin living life with a new sense of awareness.
Sometimes you need someone who can see the big picture, someone that has walked the path before you and can show you the way, that is me!
Once you, as the parent has awakened it is easier to support your child to be successful and live their best life.
Watch for local (Minnesota) and online opportunities to learn the action steps I used to become an awakened parent. I will also be sharing tools that I have used to help my now 18-year-old Daughter move from low vibration (depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation) to now living a high vibration life of thriving as a gifted adult. Our children deserve to live their best life!
