Halloween! MUAWAHAHAHHA!!!

How many of you shop at the last minute for costumes and do the school with a book thing, then drag you kids around the neighborhood forging for Hershey's chocolate and getting bubble gum?! lolol, I know right, I do that! I learned a few tricks of the Halloween trade over the years that really work. I shop for the following year the day after Halloween! I found costumes 2 weeks after Halloween for 45 cents this year! Many of the books that matched the costumes such as Harry Potter, Where The Wild Things Are, Disney Princesses and Tinker Bell were also on sale. I also found that by having a neighborhood Halloween party the kids aren't as needy for candy on the night of Trick-or-Treating. Honestly, they had more fun at the party then they did forging for candy. It also gave the opportunity to teach them about the holiday itself. What it is about, the different ways it is celebrated in other countries and why. Like the Day of the Dead parades in many South American countries such as Mexico and Sowen Feasts in many European cultures. Bring the fun back to All Hollows Eve and learn a little about spiritual celebrations with your family too.

When do you start connecting with your child?

I am asked that alot, when do you start trying to connect? Many feel they start connecting while the baby is still inside the womb. For some reason I feel it is after. I have always cuddled with my children as soon as they come home, infact as soon as they are born! I know Doctors recommend not having the baby in the bed but I can't imagine not having the baby next me. There is a sense of security for both. They know they are safe and protected when they can feel your heartbeat. I know they are safe and protected because they are in my arms next to me. Two of my six children even wound their hands in my hair from day one to make sure I didn't get away from them! hehe!! When you sleep you are an open tuner, and when your are thinking of one and the other thinking of you at the same time when sleeping it only seems natural you would bond. I feel it more of a natural maternal instinct really. Many of us are so caught up in the modern way of mothering we have ventured a little too far from our beginnings, the way it was, maybe the way it is supposed to be. We are so into baby beds, baby bouncers, baby swings, anything to occupy the baby without touching them. We are losing the connection, that first bond based on touch, smell, and security. I know you can still get that even when they are a little older by napping together, but I do feel much is lost in the deeper connection when you occupy the baby instead of occupying yourself with the baby. I'm sure many of you have the problem of having to work outside the home as soon as a month after giving birth. I commend the Europeans for extending that maternity leave to 6 months. I feel it is very important to be with them as much as possible. I to have had to go back to work outside the home soon after, but I also made all my time available when I was home. Try a baby sling, it fits around the neck and back of the Mother and holds the baby close to you without tying up your hands. You can get a lot done around the house or even shopping and you and baby are still connecting, still together. Then there is breast feeding! You can't get a more intimate connection then that. It's a time when mother and child are connected in a way that others can not intrude upon. The baby feels secure and cared for and the mother, well, she feels relief! Need I say more? hehe Lets face it, nature never intended for us to get out of bed every 3 hours to make a bottle and sit in a chair to feed the baby. Sometimes I feel science goes a little too far with their extreme safety measures. I try to stay as close to how nature intended as possible. There is a reason for it, like sleep, like bonding, like sharing the immune system. The benefits of nature strongly out weigh the science and gadgets. I feel this kind of connection can happen for anyone that wants too be totally in their child's head. It creates a natural bond, and instinctual bond as it was intended by nature for the survival of a child. A bond that will last a lifetime.

Psychic Connections

Being a psychic and a Mom, of coarse I have a connection with my children. I know when to worry and when it is something not so important. I feel their fear when they scrap their knees, ok, well, that might not be so cool. But I have noticed as they get older they have a connection with me as well. I guess it works both ways. My oldest children finish my sentences now. Sometimes we don't even finish whole sentences because we know what is being said and the answers too! It is kind of cool sometimes. People who know us think we are strange, and people who don't know us think we are even stranger. Even better they knew the perfect gift for Mom on Mothers Day, SLEEP! I noticed I'm not the only one. Other Psychics I know seem to be able to connect with their children as well, and with their parents too. I never realized it until recently. I guess I always thought it was normal. I never gave it much thought when I was young. How my Mother and my Grandmother and I would spend our Sunday mornings cooking and laughing, yet we barely spoke a word and clearly understood the conversations. Amazing what one can learn from simple observations of their life when posed with a question, better yet, the depth that can be realized when we apply it to those around us too. What is it like being a psychic and a Mom? Interesting, fun and unique!

Are you psychic? And a mom?

hahahah! Psychic, yes.  It's a great tool to have as a Mom.

I started them young with cutting the deck to see if they are telling the truth or not.

Sure kept mine honest and still works today! Now they come to me and ask me to cut the deck to see if they are being told the truth by friends and so on.

Astrology too, by knowing their charts you can help them develop their natural talents and when older direct their career choices in areas of high interest and talent to ensure their success. It's also very helpful with giving them advice and guiding them through those painful adolescent years socially and emotionally.

I must admit it sure makes it less stressful at times so I can enjoy them and their milestones to the max!
