Through Eyes That See…

Just in my belief that he was able to communicate from the womb, I opened up a whole portal of higher levels of relating. We bonded so much in this way.
Do you remember the old saying “children should be seen and not heard…?” Growing up, this was in full effect in my house. I can remember feeling frustrated at times that no one seemed to value my thoughts or ideas… simply because I was a “child” so how could I KNOW.
Well things certainly have changed! When my son Ahser was in my belly I communicated to him all the time. I spoke to him very intelligently and even listened for his responses. (don’t worry I never heard voices – I’m not crazy!) Just in my belief that he was able to communicate from the womb, I opened up a whole portal of higher levels of relating. We bonded so much in this way. I would ask questions of him before going to sleep and then these questions would be answered within my dreams.
This bond between us deepened once he was born. He didn’t talk at all for that first year. Still, I saw so much in his alert eyes, so I always HEARD what he had to say without him having to form words. It was pretty awesome! Nursing him for close to two years played a BIG part in our telepathic union. Even now, at nine-years-old, we both really GET each other.
My friend, acclaimed writer, Nadyne Hicks has written a novel which gives parents a window into the world of a child’s mind. Showing just how important it is for a parent to really listen to their child.
Nadyne will be joining us this coming Tuesday for 5 minutes right at the start of our class to share the great impact of this book! She will also be raffling away one free copy. All you need to do is LIKE her FACEBOOK page and you will be included in the raffle on Tuesday.
I read this book in about 2 days! A real page turner. As a parent, it made me cry to see all the ways we can potentially fail our children…
