Attachment is the entire fundamental piece to parenting.
It's your power and it positions your child exactly where they need to be,
to be parented and develop fully in the healthiest way.
You have to you know and understand how we were made,
how your body functions, how your nervous system is wired, how you're supported through attachment to parent.
They tell us parenting should be natural and instinctive.
Not today, not when we’re so disconnected from our own bodies and intuition.
We were conditioned away from that a long time ago and we’ve lived our lives and now see the world through the wrong lens. We live in our heads and we look outside ourselves for the answers.
So it is within you. It’s how you’re literally made. You have all the power to parent, you just have to know how it works.
You need this fundamental information to access your power.
When this relationship is established with your child they’ll be receptive to your parenting
and you’ll be in position to do the job.
When it all makes sense, it all makes sense. And you can make your life reflect this natural perfectly laid out plan for you.
You just have to work with it, not against it.
Which you’re currently doing if you don’t know the fundamentals of attachment and your body.
Everything we’re told to do is in total opposition.
This is the safety you’re missing. This is what your body needs to actually show up and parent.
Right now you’re doing your best, but it’s based off NOTHING!
When you know there is an actual way this is supposed to happen.
That it's supposed to work, if you just take your place. You’d happily do that right?!
It’s all you have to do. Know your role and step into it.
This is the foundational information that never changes.
You’ll have the awareness to know what’s going on, to know when things are off
and you’ll know what to do for both of you anytime.
This is empowerment. You won’t need anyone or anything else truly.
You’ll know how to keep and strengthen attachment.
You’ll know what needs support or attention so that you’re not wasting your life on band-aids.
When we know we’re supported. We are safe to parent. We can rest in that and shine from there.
Everything you need to focus on comes from the basic concept that you are human
and you are nature and if you want to reach your fullest potential the only way is to honor and follow its plan.
This is basically the foundation of being human. Safety, survival, relationship and connection.
Learn this and you'll essentially learn how to be human and along with that have your power to parent another human!
