On parenting: how can awakening parents best parent their children?

From the guides:

This is a question that we know is of great personal interest to you. This is a very timely and important question. Parenting in this time on the planet is tricky…it is challenging for parents who would be oriented toward a certain kind of consciousness and who want to raise their children with let’s say, more “humanistic” values…values that are in-keeping with the harmony of the planet, with the raising of consciousness on the planet.

There is much to be desired in terms of the state of children and the state of parenting on your planet…there are many challenges which arise. One of which is your media, and the kinds of things that children are exposed to. One of which is the internet, and parenting in the age of the internet. We know you sense the challenges inherent in parenting on the planet at this time. The first thing we want to point out to you is this: that balance is needed in terms of how this issue is perceived.

The Law of Attraction Isn’t An Excuse To Feel Bad

The law of attraction isn't an excuse to feel bad - Tara Nikita

The law of attraction was never meant to be used an excuse to feel bad. It was never meant to be used a basis upon which to berate oneself for “manifesting” some unwanted thing. We were never meant to use ‘attracting’ unwanted things as a basis to extrapolate that we are flawed, or wrong.

The self- responsibility inherent in the maxim that we “create our own reality” was never meant to go hand in hand with self-blame when something unwanted happens. Responsibility and blame are not energetically equivalent.

Because of our limited understanding of this (albeit spectacularly simple) law, and because as humans we seem to be suckers for self-flagellation and feelings of unworthiness (we simply don’t have enough time here to discuss all the reasons why), we often tend to think in this way: “Because I have ‘attracted’ this unwanted thing into my life, I must be doing something wrong.” And then we intensify and amplify our experience of the unwanted things in our lives by:

The Spiritual Awakening Mentorship Session

Spiritual Awakening Blog

It is with a deep, heartfelt desire to really be of assistance to people going through the spiritual awakening process that I introduce my latest offering: the spiritual awakening mentorship session.  Creating genuinely useful resources for folks navigating the spiritual awakening process absolutely lights me up – because I had to navigate my spiritual awakening all on my own. I never really had anyone who I could turn to to explain what was going on.

It’s Not About What It’s About: Understanding Chaotic Planetary Events

Understanding chaotic global events - Tara Nikita

From the guides: 

Good afternoon.

It is actually evening, but we know you like the sound of us saying “good afternoon.” This is fine. We do not exist in your time, so we are not too bothered with what time it is. But as you sit to write this, it is in fact twilight. A nice summer evening in June.

Let us begin.

For some time we have wanted to talk about the idea that it is not about what it’s about. That the way things are received by you – the way events are painted, the way they are presented, the discourse around them…well, a lot of it is missing the point. And what is the point?

The point is that increasingly the events on your world are revealing to you that old paradigms, old perceptual paradigms, are crumbling. Your old paradigms cannot keep up with the bizarre nature of the events plaguing your world. The traumas, the things that seem outright farcical…the events that are “out there” need a new understanding applied to them.

Solstice Affirmation & Meditation

Summer Solstice Tara Nikita

I felt very moved to share a summer solstice affirmation and meditation. I invite you, if you feel resonant with these words, to say them aloud, or to perhaps take some time out of your day for private reflection. We are collectively in such volatile and tumultuous times. We are processing so much as a human collective. Sometimes I myself need to sit down and let the energy move through me in whatever way in needs to. In those moments I am acutely aware that I am serving as a “hub” for the flow and integration of energy – I am processing not just for myself, but also on behalf of the collective. This summer solstice affirmation and meditation is directed toward the planet, and the human collective.

When Shit Hits The Fan : 5 Things I Learned From Breaking Up (That You Can Learn Too)

5 Things I Learned from Breaking Up - Tara Nikita

ONE:

Well, as it turns out, my capacity to love was so much more than I thought. I discovered that I had so much more love inside me than I realized. Looking back, I see quite clearly that breaking up broke me open. It broke me open so that more love could pour out. It stretched me. It increased my love quotient.

TWO:

I learned that I was always creating the relationship I wanted. I realized the dissolution of my relationship was actually a powerfully creative act. (If you speak Tarot, think the Tower card and it’s deeper question: what creation can come from this destruction?). My love life didn’t end with breaking up. By breaking up I wasn’t starting over. I was continuing to build on something I already started. I was continuing to design the relationship I wanted – with amended architectural and interior design features. Maybe not so much colonial. Still colonial (I mean who doesn’t love colonial), but with more modern elements. Maybe more open concept. I switched out the stainless steel for a farmhouse sink (because farmhouse sinks are infinitely more charming).

Emotional States & Your Power : Approaching Food From An Energetic Perspective

Energetics of Food - Tara Nikita

Two weeks ago we looked at how the spiritual awakening process invariably asks us to heal and resolve the energetic of judgement, and we brought up food choices as a great example of an arena in which our judgement comes to the foreground to be addressed. Food is such an incredibly touchy topic that it deserves its own discussion. So this week I thought I would specifically address the energetics of food.

One of the first things to be understood when looking at food from an energetic perspective is that, in the scheme of things, the vibrational energetic underpinning one’s food consumption is more important than the specific kinds of foods one eats. (A premise which flies in the face of more conventional health paradigms. #Fun).

“I am eating this food because I am right about food, and other people are wrong” reflects an energetic of judgement.

“I am eating this food primarily because I am worried about other foods being detrimental to my health and well-being” reflects an underlying energetic of anxiety.

If judgement or anxiety (or any other negative emotion, such as self-loathing) are dominant underlying energies from which one consumes food, then these energies undercut the physical body’s ability to receive nutrient value from the food one eats. The physical body is first and foremost a bio-energetic system, which means that it is a physical translator and mirror of energy. Not only do these underlying energetic states limit the body’s ability to receive value from the food, but the body will often react to an individual’s underlying negative energetic states by displaying food allergies or intolerance.

Individual Karmic Experiences Are Collective Ascension Codes

Individual Karmic Experiences - Tara Nikita

Five planets in the astrological 11th house probably explains the increasingly “collective” focus that my work seems to be developing – the collective themes that seem to be seeking expression through the content I write.

On a planetary level, we are now receiving and integrating energies which strengthen our energetic link to the collective – of humanity and beyond. We have been receiving these “collective codes” primarily through an unconscious process of energetic integration (with recent solar and lunar eclipses as energetic catalysts), but now these integrations are rising up into our conscious awareness – influencing how we think, and the concepts we are able to articulate.

A couple of weeks ago I spoke about the shadow self, and that healing our individual shadow material always has implications for the wider collective. Similar to processing our shadow material, the karmic experiences that we encounter also have within them an inherent collective code.
