My journey with parenting began when I became a step-parent. It was one of the hardest stages of my life. It opened up all my childhood wounds that I didn’t know I had. I thought I had worked through that, and then I had my daughter after 12 years of marriage. Again, I thought I was well mentally and emotionally prepared. But, I was wrong. I didn’t realize that I was still functioning under old paradigms and belief systems that first, I didn’t know I operated under and second had me in continuous survival mode. I began to dig deeper and committed to give my daughter a richer more authentic perspective on life.
For the first three years of her life I was not the parent I imagined myself to be. I was disconnected from what I wanted and what my daughter needed from me. I kept going only thinking that I knew what I wanted and needed. I then had 2 miscarriages and was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease, which meant that I would have a hard time carrying a full term pregnancy. Again, it was not what I expected my life to be like. Through conscious parenting I can now see these circumstances with grace. I am grateful for them because they have slowly lead me to find a deeper connection and understanding of who I am, and where I am in my life as a parent and an individual. Through my own self work I have been able to grow and fully embrace these stages with my own inner wisdom and understanding that this was my path of evolution.
Finding a new way to parent and a new way to connect to my child, myself, and others has allowed me to evolve into who I am NOW. Looking back, it is as if little bread crumbs have always been laid before me to follow this path. I am fortunate to have continued the direction towards self discovery…the path to fully embracing who I am.
I will be the first to say that this path of self discovery takes time, much effort, commitment,, but mainly the willingness to let go of what doesn’t serve you, acceptance of what the present moment is showing you, and patience (lots of it) every step of the way. Acknowledging and integrating all of who your are leads to greater awareness, flexibility to flow with life, and conscious choices. You can continue on the same path, the path that you think that was given to you. Or you can take the path that you embrace and choose as your own.
Because of my own self work, evolution, and experiences into becoming more aware of who I am not only as parent, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and all the other labels that are attached to Mayra; I have been inspired to be the bridge of connection to nurture your inner growth and allow a safe space for your higher consciousness to blossom. Once gaining this new found relationship, there is no way of going back. It’s fully having the sense of trust that everything is working for you and not against you. Not only as a parent, but as a passionate being, I want to guide you to the possibility of change.
Higher self awareness evolves your thinking to actively choose a different path from a place of authentic connection,, this leads you to your active participation and co-creation in every part of your life.
