Falling in Love


All over again....

Falling in love seems so simple for some of us, but keeping that loving feelings can be challenging. Too many times when conflict arises we focus on what is wrong, and bring up over and over again some history that hurt us. Forgiveness is the key in all loving relationships, to forgive is not to condone, but is to release the hold that negative experiences have on your present serenity.

Remembering the good will make you feel a lot better than remembering the hurt, and will bring the peace you need to solve whatever conflict you have in your relationship.

Make a list of all the things you love about your partner, all the good memories you have of your life together, and embrace the feelings that come up when you recall them. Now all you have to do is transfer this love to whatever area of your relationship you'd like to improve, and then see the law of attraction work for you. Let love mend the disagreements or conflicts you are experiencing. Wake up each morning remembering why you fell in love with this particular person and use that to fuel your state of mind. Use this exercise for every relationship that needs mending.

Baby's Basic Human Right - 

The Right to Self-Expression



There is only one way for a baby to communicate to the world :  crying, that is what most people call it.  I prefer saying baby's talking.  Babies usually talk when they are hungry, startled, thirsty, tired, wet, have to burp, want to be held, wonder where you are, are just lonely, or want to tell you something. You will quickly learn what your baby is trying to tell you, if you shift your belief from "My baby cries she is in distress and I have to fix it." to "

My is talking, I might not understand exactly what she wants but I WILL LISTEN?" 

The baby has a right to self-expression.


Responding to your baby's talking every time she does, will not spoil her; it will however build a trusting relationship between her and you.


At birth you will want to hear your baby's voice as an indication she has taken her first breath, don't try to shush her or even saying things like "don't cry, it's ok," use empathy and listen to her very first expression. You could use something like "Wow is that your voice? Please tell me more." Psychologist Erik Erikson's stages of psychosocial development suggest that trust and mistrust are the first building blocks of personality. According to Erikson, choosing one versus the other, trust or mistrust, is the result of our first learned experiences in the womb, at birth and throughout the non-verbal life of a child.


Babies cry, or 'talk' a lot so the best thing is to offer is empathy and an attentive ear.  Babies have only one way of communicating - it sounds like crying - and if every time they attempt to talk we try to shut them down they will get the wrong message.  


In my work as a postpartum doula, I've noticed that sometimes when babies cry they just need your attention. Of course I encourage to always attending to a baby crying, in fact I am not a big supporter of anyone who tells you to let you baby cry to self-soothe or sleep on her own.  But when I respond to a baby who is crying instead of shushing or bouncing him on a ball to quickly quiet him, I rather approach the crib, or chair and simply empathize. I say something like, "I hear you, I am here, tell me more. Did you wake up scared?" "You seem very upset, tell me how you feel?" Invariably the baby hearing and feeling empathy calms down.
