“2 months old!"
Greetings dear friends,
We are pleased to announce during our 4th trimester, that
Anjali is healthy, happy, joyful, and getting her first adventures
outside the home.
We have also seen some intense healing between our histories and us.
In my newness to parenting, I am flooded with memories of my father, my deep love and my let-downs, his anger in my system that sneaks out, and the utter impatience I’ve had with nervousness, as he had with my mother. And please know, all the ease and grace and natural ability I have being a parent and absolute cherishing and faith in our family, comes from my mother and father’s steadfast dedication to loving.
Destiny helped me discover a depth in my reactions which was this:
When I react with anger, I am actually afraid.
Not only do I not get what I truly want and need
I make it more difficult for my beloved to have peace.
As we worked it, we found something similar for Destiny:
“When I feel ‘holier than’, or offer confusion, I am actually nervous.
Not only do I not get what I truly want and need,
I make it more difficult for my beloved to have peace and block intimacy by withholding feelings.
We’ve uncovered some intense patterns, and it wasn’t a pretty road to get there.
But, we realized our intentions for this time were to clear the debris out of our minds and emotions, so we can offer clarity to our beloved daughter, Anjali. It kicked it all up in our faces! This became an entangled mess as we triggered each other far past calmness, clarity, or comprehension.
We found our way through, and we’d like to share a little with you.
