I have been quiet on the blog front.
I have been spending a lot of time reading, resting and dreaming of my life in a house with a vegetable garden and chickens.
I have also been doing some sewing.
And yoga homework.
Getting sick a day before Sohail's birthday.
I had a dear friend come over and bring us home made cupcakes so that we could celebrate his birthday even though I was out of action. How special to have friends looking out for us.
Something else that is special is that the Universe heard my dreams and wishes about my life with a vegetable garden and chickens.
About a year ago I wrote out the requirements for our next house:
If you can't read my writing it says: near the train line, near the school, wooden floors, natural light, fire place, yoga room, beautiful garden, beautiful entertainment area, a sacred, loving place.
And a blessing to Goddess Lakshmi.
It has been sitting on my altar ever since I wrote it. Imagining this life where my children can run outside and play in the garden and I can try out my hand at making us a bit self sustaining and living from the land.
I had finally decided that this house could not be found. We would have to build it. And that is still a few years away. So I started making my plans to live my self sustaining life in my courtyard in the 'burbs.
And then, the house came! When I let go of the resistance and attachment to it, it came!Everything on my list, is in the house. And the funniest thing is that there is a vegetable garden already in the house. And chickens roaming in the back yard. And they come with the house!!
We are all still laughing when we think that the chickens actually come with the house!
We move into the house next month, a year and a week after I made my request to the Universe. It is making me think about the next thing I want to create...
If you are reading this, I would like you to know that you can do the same thing. We can all create exactly what we want in our lives.
So we start packing.
And I go away in between for the second module of my Dru Yoga teacher training course.
And I feel that a shift is happening within me.
I feel that I want to share more of what inspires me.
And hopefully it will inspire you.
I am often asked about how I get it right that my children are so peaceful. So happy.
They have obviously come into this life with their own personalities and life lessons. So I can't say that it is all because of me.
But, what I can say is that I am always driven by peace.
A peaceful home.
A peaceful mind.
A peaceful life.
And to be a peaceful mother.
Perhaps I have something to share.
Perhaps I should go deeper.
Perhaps I should go lighter.
Perhaps it's time to change the name of my blog.
So you are now visiting Peaceful Mothering.
A place where yoga, spirituality and mothering come together.
Who knows where this journey will go. I am just being called to take it in this direction. So I trust it.
I also have a Facebook page now. You can visit it here. I am not sure if that link works. I will try and create a button on the blog.
I hope you join me on this journey. Life, is really so very beautiful. Let's open our eyes and see it.
Blessings to you.
