Welcome

I Believe you are here for a reason

That this is part of an answer your soul has been calling for; a new path to the connection that you seek.

I believe....

I believe that our daughters chose to co-create this life together with us. Whether biological, adopted, by marriage or however she has come into your life, at one point your soul and her soul chose to connect earthside for this journey you are on. 

I believe....

I believe the light shines where the cracks are. Your daughter will trigger and re-trigger wounds that need to be healed within you from your own journey in order to breaks cycles and empower her and yourself. Lean into the triggers, they are your road map.

I believe....

I believe that our daughters are our greatest teachers that their actions and behaviors are often a mirror to the wounds that we need to heal within ourselves, these lessons can often feel like rejection, anger, sadness, pain and fear. We need to see past the pain to the root lesson in order to change it. We need to FEEL in order to heal.

I believe....

I believe that emotional intelligence is the foundation of empowerment. When a girl is able to sit with an emotion in her body, identify the feeling and root cause, she will then be able to use the tools we give her to work through that emotion to the outcome she is seeking in a healthy way. Healthy emotional intelligence leads to a decline in risky and unhealthy behaviors.

I believe....

I believe that intuition is  a gift and a personal roadmap we are all given but society has taught us to turn it off or rationalize it away. The more we teach girls to listen to their bodies and the whispers of their heart the faster she will stand in her own power.

I believe....

I believe the stories we tell ourselves will come true, that we co-create with the universe and that our thoughts have power. Want to change your story? Change your thoughts. You think the twos are terrible, that is what you will see. You think your teenage daughter will push you away and not want to talk to you, that is what you will see. What would it look like if we reversed these stories the world tells us is true and instead created stories filled with connection and love? How would you show up differently?

I believe....

I believe that Strong Personal Identity is a foundational tenet to becoming a powerful girl but in order for our daughters to develop this WE have to heal our own stories and wounds in order to be able to create a healthy detachment to allow our daughters to develop and show up as WHO they are and not who we hope they will be. 

I believe....

I believe that Independence is a foundational tenet to becoming a powerful girl but society conditions us to be co-dependent, especially women. The sooner we start practicing and allowing our daughters autonomy and independence the more powerful she becomes because she learns what she is truly capable of. The ability to allow the independence and autonomy that girls need relies heavily our our ability to face and heal our own fears and insecurities as the two are connected.

I believe....

I believe that Leadership is a foundational tenet to becoming a powerful girl but that many people confuse leadership with loudness or bigness. Leadership for each girl can look different, sometimes it is quiet like a whisper and sometimes is is loud; neither is stronger than the other. In order for a girl to lead others she must first learn to lead herself, and that relies on her developing a Strong Personal Identity and Independence.

I believe....

I believe that motherhood is a cyclical journey. Sometimes we have to pull back to a cocoon, reconnect with ourselves and heal in order to move forward. I call this “Motherhood Metamorphis” and we will all go through several of these cycles on our journey, emerging changed each time. With community and the right support these changes can become transformational.

This week on the podcast we are looking at the link between social media usage and the HUGE spike in mental health issues in girls. We look at some reasons why this is occurring and dive into technology usage, cell phone contracts, resources to help you navigate wherever you are on your journey and more.

From podcast episode #180 "5 Things that can BUILD UP or BREAK DOWN trust with your daughter". The trigger is the roadmap of healing you need to be who your daughter needs you to be. The path you choose to take will determine whether you continue to clash with your daughter or heal and connect. Which road will you take? Will you choose the transformation? #spiritualparenting #motherhood #DivineFeminine #tiredmom #generationaltrauma #GenerationalHealing #Raisingpowerfulgirl #girlmom #mentalhealth #conversationswithmydaughters #teengirls #emotionalhealing #podcast #personaldevelopment #womenwhopodcast ...

Sometimes we find ourselves holding onto things just to be right because the is why we know or how we were raised and it causes opposition with our daughters. Sometimes what we need to do is take a step back and see if this is really something you need to hold onto or something that needs to be changed. The opposition is an opportunity for self reflection, “Is this really what I want, Does this match my values and what I want for a relationship with my daughter, how important is this too me, WHY am I actually doing this”……

How do I get my daughter to stand up for herself? To a bully? To an mean girl? To an abusive partner? To an innapropriate boss? And so forth? Honing her voice starts at home, in a space created to allow her to practice boundaries and speak up for herself but those that love her most in the world...

" You need to be the safe place. You need to be the safe place like physically and the safe place emotionally. You cannot be a safe place emotionally if you are not feeling safe in your own body. And if your nervous system is dysregulated, you do not feel safe in your own body."

I pulled this card right before I recorded this weeks podcast episode and I can't tell you how fitting it was. If you ever listen on ONE of my podcast episodes this is the one, #180 is probably the most powerful and profound one with tons of information to change you and your daughters relationship...

They are watching everything you do, who you are and how you show up in the world! Are you modeling the behavior you wish to see in them? My daughters were watching tv the other day and I walked by and saw a girl in a beautiful dress and I said, “Wow, that dress is beautiful”. My youngest one said, “You should have seen the other girls dress. It was a black and white ball but she showed up in a Red dress instead because she didn’t want to wear white”. My eldest says back, “yeah mama she was showing some real Maria F (my name) vibes, she doesn’t care what people think, she wears what she wants and isn’t afraid to be different from everyone else, she is awesome!” I was stunned, shocked and surprised. This was one of the most important lessons I have been trying to instill in my daughters. Strong personal identity, strong sense of self, the ability to show up authentically in a world that wants you to conform, being comfortable with standing out. How did I do it? How did they learn this? I have lived this way for a long time, getting stronger and more confident with each passing year. The black sheep, the feather ruffler, the outcast. Labels that have been thrown at me that I have chosen to EMBRACE instead of letting it squash me. Its my everyday interactions, how I communicate with people, how I show up, how I advocate for myself, how I advocate for my daughters, how I communicate with those around me and the boundaries I set. It’s living this authentically that is giving my daughters permission to step up and do the same. How do we empower our daughters? We do this by doing the work ourselves because they are watching us. What path are you clearing for them to step into? #raisingmothers #raisingapowerfulgirl #girlmom #womensupportingwomen #womenempowerment ...

I adore Brene Browns work. If you haven't read any of her books I highly reccomend it, actually her audio books are even more amazing because she authentically narrates them. I run through her books once a year, they are such a huge reminder to stay vulnerable to be adaptable to change, to discard perfectionism, to apologize to my girls when I mistakes which I do often and show them that vulnerability is a superpower. It was actually Brene's Work that gave me the courage to start my podcast over 5 years ago and show up authentically and vulnerably share my stories with others in the hopes of creating community but helping even just 1 mom out there not feel alone. I have so many fun things for connection and community this year that I'm excited to share. <3 #raisingapowerfulgirl #daringgreatly #parentingpodcast #womenwhopodcast #girlmom #gentleparenting ...

Teaching your daughter to be her own hero is as simple as playing the hero of the story. Teach your daughter she doesn’t need to be saved but that she can be her own hero. Daddy here doesn’t need to save his princess, in fact he knights her and dubs her “Arya the Brave” and so the story is created in her own mind that she is her own hero #beyourownhero #raisinggirls #girlmom ...
