The continuation of connection

Siri Arti explores the ups and downs of family connection

Concious Parenting

Ihave written many articles on family connection and its dual opposite, disconnection. My self-inquiry is the possibility of keeping the connection continuous; a never-ending flow of love bombs and nurture in action. But in reality I understand that energy is in a constant state of change. Sometimes I’m so in love with my two children, and in a good place myself, so the connection is natural and effortless. Then, there are challenging times, where stress has me up against a wall, with my teenagers pushing me to face yet another ‘first-time’ scenario. During these periods, if I’m not mindful of my behaviour, I can react by taking a giant step backwards and simply disconnect. Who knows why this happens: protection, exhaustion, overwhelm, denial, there can be many reasons that feed my desire to run. Right now, it’s 27 degrees outside and I’m sipping a chilled glass of wine thinking just how wonderful my life is. My son is visiting his dad; my daughter is out with friends; my pup is lying at my feet, all is well in my world. I feel totally connected, to the universe, my children and myself.
