OUR LIFE IS OUR PRAYER... It is our gift to the Universe. When our Souls leave this world, the memories we have made will be our legacy to our loved ones. We owe it to ourselves and everyone around us to be happy and to spread that JOY around. Sprinkle it everywhere. Smile. Be grateful for all the love in your life and in your heart. Mamma, your ripple effect is ever in motion, so make it a glorious one. Bask in the light and feel drenched with love.

Sparkly orange nails to welcome in Autumn. My favourite season. Pumpkin spice and all things nice 🎃🍂🍁
.
My nails are usually bare, broken and unloved. If I have a spare 15minutes I usually spend it working; whether that’s my actual work, working around the house, or working on our never-ending pile of life admin. To take 15 minutes out to paint my nails feels self-indulgent. Especially when I know in a few days I’ll have to spend more time taking it off when it starts to chip. Painting my nails was something I always did pre-children, but something I rarely do after. Special occasions aside. I’ve decided to change that now though, because looking at the bright colours makes me feel happy and happiness is something we could all use more of. Time isn’t wasted if you enjoy wasting it 😉 -I heartily recommend you do more of it!

🍁 Happy Monday lovelies! Wishing you all a warm beginning to the Fall season.
.
I feel the temperatures cooling, the leaves are starting to change colors, the energy all around is definitely more yin and calmer now.

🍂 How are you marking your personal transition with this new Fall season? What energetic changes do you hope to make within your own internal spirits, as well as inside your family home?

#mondaymantra •
I mentioned that I’m reading a book called Body Kindness recently and this quote has been on my mind a lot lately. It’s the perfect affirmation for the start of a new week! 🙌🏻
•
Sure, there are things that I’d like to change about my body, but even so, I’m so grateful for the body that I have! •
It allows me to move in ways that I enjoy - like yoga, hiking and walking. I’m relatively healthy. AND it has helped me create four amazing babies! Those are some pretty great things to be happy about. 💗

Do you you like to have an affirmation or mantra that you focus on each week? If so, what’s one of your favorites?

#mindfulmamamonday💗 I feel like Spring is the perfect time to kick off this post series. Spring represents new life and as you became a mother you not only created a new life, you also became reborn. It can take a long time to figure out what the new you looks like; it can feel like the old you doesn't fit anymore. And no one really talks about that or supports you through it. But you don't need to feel afraid, you don't need to rush to figure this new life out. You just need to be aware and be present and it will come - you just need to allow it the space to be. <3
This week my focus has been on choosing my motherhood mantra or intention for the coming year. This may change week to week, day to day but my totally focus for this year is "I AM PRESENT". Setting an intention is such a good way to come back to your Self and to refocus and stay calm. There are so many that apply to motherhood but this is mine and it feels so right. <3
I have so much more to say on the rebirth of the mother and mindfulness in your motherhood journey so I'll be writing this much more in depth over on my blog soon! .

We had our annual primary program at church today. It’s pretty much my favorite Sunday of the whole year! 💗 The kids sing songs and share about what they’ve learned in primary all year - and it’s so fun to see so many cuties all smushed together at the front of the chapel. •
I was reminded again today that these days are short. Our oldest is officially too old to participate, and this was probably the last program that one of the adorable little ones  in the front row belonged to us. •
But watching our younger three sing and smile and share made my mama heart swell with love for them and the gospel. •
Happy Sunday, friends! 💗😘💗

Becoming a mother is a huge transition. One of the biggest you can experience. 
Becoming a mother of young adults is also hard. Letting go, trusting, respecting and celebrating individuality and differences. Inside what I want to know is that I will always share the closeness that I have grown with my children as they increasingly live their own rich lives. I am enjoying all the points where we meet and align and respecting the points where we don’t. It’s exciting and scary but true love is always freedom and not control. It’s the big T WORD again-TRUST! 
I thought I would share this “Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable” -The prophet

BABY WISDOM-Have you ever thought that actually babies are the greatest teachers in the world? They are always present in the moment. They trust. They grow through connection. They eat, sleep and play. They are not afraid to communicate their needs and they are open hearted. All these things are such amazing qualities that we all have at birth. Where do they go and how do we learn to forget them and close ourselves? Many of us spend years trying to return to the emotional state we had as babies. Let’s celebrate the wisdom of babies. Rather than teach them, let’s learn from them. I think we can learn a lot. Love creates love ❤️💫❤️ pic @expectful

Morning gratitudes ✨

Each morning I write down 3 gratitudes, a daily reminder of what I have and value vs. what I lack. The cute journal and pen keep me motivated 😉

Today’s gratitudes:
1️⃣ a gorgeous AZ sunrise 🌅 🌵 
2️⃣ delicious morning snuggles with Olivia
3️⃣ a weekend ahead full of quality time with my family + a little “me time”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you grateful for today?

Watching the sunrise, thinking about the wheel turning to Mabon. My favorite holiday. Feeling melancholy about how different it looks this year. Despite not having a big meal or ritual I’m focusing on all the things I do have to be grateful for and hopefully by next year this place will feel like home and we’ll be settled in. *art by Margaret Ellis*

It’s world reflexology week this week so I thought I would share a little foot map of your baby’s foot so you can see the different areas that you can stimulate with massage or gentle pressure. We use reflexology in our baby massage routine to help enhance wellbeing and it’s so easy to do on babies. It’s great to try when you are holding your baby in your arms. #reflexology #babyreflex

Friday night neighborhood hangs. I grew up in a country neighborhood, but there weren’t many kids to play with so I was lonely often. I’m so grateful that’s not a problem here 💕

I used to love playing with these things when I was a kid. Elliana asking me to play again was like taking a step back into that space.... that place where I would play just to play. Laugh just to laugh. And be just to be. Fully immersed in each moment...✨finding freedom in unbridled presence✨ Unpopular Opinion: Kids are more mindful then most adults🌸 #sweetellianarose #bigislandlove #consciousparenting #mindfulmothering

We'll never get tired of saying it.... community is the most necessary component of mothering. ⠀
⠀
Because of newer cultural norms, our default mode is often to isolate when things get rough. We struggle alone; feeling helpless as the very struggles we are facing threaten to overwhelm us. ⠀
⠀
But it's not just about asking for help (this is good, obviously) but really about mothering in close community. We need to share life with other families. To breastfeed (and feed our children) with other mothers. To have friends who have seen our children at their worst; and us too. Who love us anyways. Who would be the first to notice if you seem out of sorts. ⠀
⠀
We wouldn't struggle so much to ask for help if the help was already there.⠀
⠀
Do you feel like you have community? A close knit circle that you can count on day or night? Other mothers and families who you share space with regularly - not in a "quick, clean the house someone's coming over" kind of way?⠀
⠀

🚗 👶🏽 Getting a baby travel system can be a nightmare as there are SO many models at varying prices. .

It’s good to be mindful of your needs - will you be going in the car a lot? Are the pavements around your home smooth or bumpy (Like most of the ones on mersea!!)? .

recommendations from other mums are good, and I was lucky enough to test six of the latest systems for the October issue of @motherandbaby magazine - out now! I tested models by @silvercrossuk @icandyworlduk @babyjogger @tuttibambiniuk @joie_global and @mybabiieofficial 
Find out which one won!! 🥇

Can’t get over how beautiful she is 😍 although very deceiving as she’s currently trying to fight her nap time 🤦🏼‍♀️ and not that you can see in the photo, but her jumper actually says ‘not tired’ 😳 she’s learned how to take her dummy out of her mouth but can’t put it back in yet, so when she’s tired she plays with it and takes it out but also can’t fall asleep without it 😩😂 we’ve got our beautiful best friend coming over today, we’ve decided to stay indoors and hide away from this horrible wind! Still slowly getting better and better after our  rubbish start to the week! Sofia’s back to being her happy self after her jabs and I’m on the mend from antibiotics. Happy Thursday!😬 (edit: it’s actually Friday as I have just been told.. you can see what having a baby has done to my brain 🧠🙅🏼‍♀️🤣)
Can’t get over how beautiful she is 😍 although very deceiving as she’s currently trying to fight her nap time 🤦🏼‍♀️ and not that you can see in the photo, but her jumper actually says ‘not tired’ 😳 she’s learned how to take her dummy out of her mouth but can’t put it back in yet, so when she’s tired she plays with it and takes it out but also can’t fall asleep without it 😩😂 we’ve got our beautiful best friend coming over today, we’ve decided to stay indoors and hide away from this horrible wind!

Did you know that your baby’s brain creates 1 million connections every second! The brain develops from 30% to 85% in the first 3 years of life. That’s why enriching experiences for babies are so important as they wire babies brains. Baby massage stimulates all your baby’s senses and touch helps your baby understand his body and what it is capable of. All kinds of touch help build babies brains. Grow babies brains with love

DO THE WORK- I was feeling a bit sorry for myself this week. I have been trying very hard to reach some personal health goals and introduced some really different lifestyle changes to achieve it. Four weeks in, nothing has changed. In fact I have moved in the other direction. It was very tempting to give up and go back to what I know, that does not get me to my goal BUT is not the worst place to be. Then TRUST kicked in. PATIENCE came in too. LOGIC also played a role. If you are doing what you need to do to achieve what you want to achieve sometimes you have to just trust that it will happen. Not when you click your fingers but when it all comes together. I don’t control that time. I am used to working hard and getting where I want to be. That formula is not working right now. So....I decided - do more of what you know WILL get you there and let go of wanting it all now. If you have a system and it’s based on truth, then you just have to let go! This is a biggy for me. It’s uncomfortable and challenging but also teaching me a lot! Ultimately you just got to do the work and trust!

I have been in full creation mode for the last few days writing courses for Malawi and making new resources. I made these cue cards which are part of a bigger series of cards to share with parents in our classes to give them the confidence to bond and connect with their babies. Not everyone feels naturally at home as a parent or with their baby so I created these series of cards for my teachers to help get to some of the core issues around maternal and infant mental health. Our courses are not just about baby massage and yoga-they are about teaching love. Love creates love ❤️💫❤️

Oh baby-wearing how you got me through that first year and then some with both my boys. I was able to still function and get things done, they felt secure and close to mama, and lets face it chasing after one child while hoping the other one stays safe is a plan of nightmares. Head over to @its_april_again to read about her babywearing journey. If you wore your kiddos tell me below how it played a role in your life? ☀️

Shop news!‼️ Please read carefully ‼️ I’ve experienced an increase in exchange requests due to ordering items too small. While I understand that we cannot always measure the child before purchasing, exchanges add to my list of items to complete. { I highly recommend measuring your child before purchasing and adding 1 inch for necklaces and .5 inch for bracelets/anklets. } I need to increase my time line for exchanges to be fair to current open orders. Exchanges will now take up to 2 weeks to process before shipping the item back to you. This two week time period does not begin until the item has been received by me in the same condition received by you. Also, customers will now be responsible for shipping fees for exchanged items. Previously I have incurred these costs but it has gotten to be a much larger cost for me as they add up. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and can understand why these changes were necessary. Thank you!⠀

I bought a set of natural wood semi circles, hoping E would like to build more with her rainbows. When she unwrapped them she declaimed then “not fun” and “boring” so I passed her a piece of rainbow and asked what she could do with them both... she stacked them together and repeated and built the tower (swipe) all by her self. She populated it with all sorts of animals calling it a “jungle tower.”
The next morning I set up this ball run for her to find. 
The semi circles are no longer “boring”, they are now “good.”

Sometimes it’s easy to overlook the simple things-“Together with the practices of breastfeeding, baby carrying, and co-sleeping, infant massage is part of a wider “caretaking-package” which involves a set of behaviors necessary to satisfy the child’s needs for contact, holding, communication, and feeding; these needs are simple and primitive but often unrecognized (Balsamo, 2007). Love creates love ❤️💫❤️

IF YOU WANT THE RAINBOW, YOU'VE GOT TO DEAL WITH THE RAIN.... Urggghhhh! We have been sick as dogs!! Short, sharp, 24hr thing that spread like wildfire to 5 out of 6 of us. Whooooooaahh. Feeling that ill and looking after your babes, who are feeling that ill, is indeed a superpower. On the plus side, all we could do was snuggle, puke and watch (in a stop, start, kind of fashion 😷) a "Fault in our Stars", a beautiful, life-affirming film. The sickness struck me on Monday night, has been grim, but I awoke this morning with delight that my energy had returned. ENERGY, what a beautiful thing. A life-force. One that we take for granted most of the time. A force that our children demand and we demand of ourselves. I have been rendered helpless with it's lack and am so grateful for it's return! When you have felt spectacularly bad, it so utterly wonderful to feel normal again. 🤗 Today I am rejoicing in the beauty of my energy. Today that is my rainbow & Mammas “if you want the rainbow, you've got to deal with the rain" John Green- The Fault in our Stars.

Babies love singing (even my voice which is saying something 😂) and sensory play,  they love you narrating what you are doing or even telling or reading a story too!  They find you so interesting and your voice so comforting. Of course all of this is deepened by always responding to their cues. 
Total quality time and a life long skill

Toddlers and yoga! Yes it requires patience and songs and rhymes and games but it’s such a lovely way to connect and this stretch “Brain circles” can help with coordination. Use songs and stretches to play with your little one. Keep that natural flexibility flowing. I don’t know if you have guessed but this is gorgeous Ollie who has been in our baby massage videos for the last 2 years and he still loves to play! Love creates love ❤️👌❤️

🌸 I am the founder of Blossom & Berry. I have the most incredible network of inspiring teachers across the world creating connected relationships between parents and babies through nurturing touch.
🌸I am a co founder of Love Support Unite charity helping to empower vulnerable  babies and mothers in poverty and Malawi and teach vital touch and nurturing care in orphanages around the world.

I am all these things plus a wife and a daughter and a best friend and just me. 
All these things I love and enrich my life on every level. Love as at the core and in all do. Love creates love ❤️💫❤️

Cloth diapering is one of those things that gets a little more challenging as babies get older...bigger poops, more pee, and mobility! It’s still so worth it for us though - and it’s one of the things that has helped me stay really mindful while mothering!

Now that we are back into the swing of the school year our Tuesday - Thursdays seem to be jam packed. Filled with swimming, soccer, Owen’s preschool, driving Aleks to and from school this mama taxi service is fully booked! The good thing is that the middle of our weeks seem to pass in the blink of an eye, so we get to the weekend in record speed lately. 😅 Hopefully our weekends will not take any cues from our weekdays and try to stay a little bit slower. ☀️⠀

There are moments when I stand back and question why I created such a momentous shift in my sexuality and, inextricably related to this, my career, at this point in my life.
This often happens during moments when my life seems TOO full, and I feel like I`m trying to spin 30 plates in the air all at once.
As a single mum, of two young children, I wonder, occasionally, what life would have looked like if I`d discovered the path of sexual awakening, and the coaching work I do, at an age before children.
...
...
And then reality and perspective hit me.
I see the purpose in the perfect timing within which this has all occurred for me.
...
...
Through the blessing of already being a mother, I`m gifted with direct experience of what it means to shift the cultural narrative around sex.
I get to reset the context of how we, as adults, convey a healthy perspective regarding sex and our bodies, through my mothering.
As I continue to unpack the layers of negative belief systems within myself, accumulated from an outdated cultural paradigm, I am humbled to witness the impact that this has on my young children.
Within my family, I get to rewrite that cultural story.
And I get to see the shame-free joy that a child has when she or he expresses ownership of their body and pleasure.
I`m able to feel the simplicity and innocence of having open conversation with my kids, about relationship, intimacy and the human body; Answering their questions without shame or judgement.
...
...
And I get to see what can be possible for our culture, when the distortions around sexuality are released.
I`m gifted with a hint of the embodied, honoring, joyful, shame-free community of people, that I desire for this planet.
...
...
May the next generation be closer to that reality.
I will do all I can to be a part of that shift.

There are moments when I stand back and question why I created such a momentous shift in my sexuality and, inextricably related to this, my career, at this point in my life. This often happens during moments when my life seems TOO full, and I feel like I`m trying to spin 30 plates in the air all at once. As a single mum, of two young children, I wonder, occasionally, what life would have looked like if I`d discovered the path of sexual awakening, and the coaching work I do, at an age before children. ... ... And then reality and perspective hit me. I see the purpose in the perfect timing within which this has all occurred for me. ... ...

SAFE SPACE-Creating a safe space for your baby and yourself is so important. Safety and security allows us to expand and grow. Your body and arms are the perfect safe space for your baby and that’s why your baby longs to be cuddled, held and touched by you. Your touch and body creates the safe space. As a new mother, you also need a safe space to grow and develop feeling supported, heard and held. That’s what baby massage and yoga classes do-create a space to explore your feelings, share and connect. The early days of parenting are overwhelming for mothers and babies. Create a safe space for you both and then emerge when you are ready. Don’t rush, don’t pretend it’s all okay. Allow yourself to feel safe and supported and then the confidence to expand will come. Love creates love ❤️💫❤️ pic credit @expectful

Thank you for all the love this week. This is the start of a very exciting time for us. So happy to be here with you and share the importance of slowing down and creating connection and memories through massage. Amy xo

Wednesday and Thursday this week at MINDFUL MOTHERING we are talking about trusting yourself.
Stop over researching everything and trust your gut. Trust your intuition. Trust yourself.
Shall I save you a spot on the couch??

Over the past week it has been such an emotional time in the studio and tears were shed.
I’ve worked on so many loss pieces and we were blessed enough to have stories shared to us through little notes and photographs, some of which were so painful to even imagine the heartache behind, like this beautiful Alina ring which holds a young woman’s ashes ❤️
Please know that when you send your photographs and stories I treasure them dearly & package them all away to keep forever. There’s something very special in connecting someone’s story to what I am physically creating with. Whether it is elation and joy, struggles and perseverance, or pain and heartache, it all matters and each and every one touches us deeply.
We are grateful for every single one of you who has allowed us to work with these materials which holds meaning so deep.

#mondaymantra #mondaymotivation  Comin’ at ya! You can do hard things!
•
Over the weekend I was reflecting on some of the hard and/or scary things that I’ve done over the last year, and I’m feeling super proud of myself! •
I don’t always feel very brave on a daily basis, but when I think of all of the times that I have challenged myself to step out of my comfort zone, or done something that scares me, I’m able to remind myself that I am in fact BRAVE! •
What are some of the brave things that you’ve done lately? Little or big . . . they ALL count! 💗

A couple of mine are in the comments. 😊

Today I get to visit with this little lady + her mama + her new baby sister! It’s always a great time when I get to spend the afternoon with Molly from @ever.little. Things are very relaxed and I don’t feel like I have to be anyone but my crazy self! I’m going to monopolize all of her time while she’s on maternity leave. Hopefully she won’t mind! 🤣 Now what kind of tasty treat should I snag along the way for us to snack on?⠀

{ Amber teething jewelry has long been prized for its abilities to soothe even the crankiest of teething tots. When amber (a fossilized resin) is worn close to the skin it is warmed by body heat and releases therapeutic properties enjoyed by children and adults alike. Wear all the amber with love friends! ☀️ }⠀

This is another one of my favourite books. Think there is a right way to parent? Reading this made me totally understand that parenting is a cultural practice and that there is so many variables the only right way is your own instinctive and intuitive way. There is a theory that babies brains are undeveloped at birth to enable cultural imprinting so wherever you are born in the world you can adapt to the environment and culture. All Deborah Jackson’s books are inspiring as they are based on anthropology.

Hi there beautiful girl xo Have you taken the time, created the opportunity to connect with your baby today? It doesn't have to be a full body massage just simply slowing down and checking in and being full "with" them. #present #mindfulparenting #babymassage

WHEN YOUR DAUGHTER HAS SHOES THAT YOU DREAM OF.... Once upon a time, I dreamed of having a daughter, calling her Ruby and dressing her in red! Fast forward a few years and I am blessed with 2 gorgeous boys, my beautiful Ruby and her scrummy little sister! Both girls do wear alot of red and I recognise that I am living out my dreams. How wonderful. Take time to look back and enjoy the dreams that you once had that you are now manifesting. What you project, you attract. Not sure that these shoes come in my size, but if they do....I am waiting!! ❤️😂🤞 #joyfulmothering #joyfulmamma #joyfulmammas #joyfulmamas #joyfulmama #happymamma #happymama #joyfulliving #lovelife #trueessence #mindfulmama #mindfulmamma #daretodream #mindfulmothering #daughters #manifest #setyourintention #summeroffun #Mumof4 #mumlife #soberlife #lawofattraction #kidsshoes #radiatepositivity #leopardshoes #newshoes #motherhood

At #MINDFULMOTHERING, we are HONEST, supportive and raise each other up instead of tearing each other down.⠀

To one #yqrmom, being a mindful mother is “slowing down, being present, taking time for myself, taking time for my husband and our relationship. Happy parents = happy baby.”

To the mumma who is frantically trying to cook dinner, answer the phone, with a babe on her hip, who turns around to find the toddler has made themselves a bowl of rice bubbles and now has 2 Litres of milk on the floor. 
This is a gentle reminder to slow down. Breathe. You are amazing!  Xo
