In this blog I want to inspire people and motivate them. I’m not writing a lot about my life but today I want to share something with you. I’m a single mom who gave birth to a beautiful son 13 years ago. From the day he was born it was like he didn’t need much sleep. I do, I need at least 7-8 hours of sleep to function. I also got sick easily when I didn’t get much sleep. So you can understand my problem when I had a child who didn’t sleep much. He was always happy though so that was great but it didn’t help me those days when I haven’t been getting much sleep. I was in a bad mood a lot and often had a problem with a cold or sore throat. I remember my boss at that time asking me if I’m okay since I seem to get sick all the time.
My son always woke up early. I’m sure a lot of people can relate to that.
The feeling when they get up around 4-5 and you are so tired you can’t think straight. I was worried that he didn’t get much sleep. We all know how important it is for kids to get a good night rest. He didn’t eat a lot of sugar that kept him up because I’m always thinking about what we eat. When he got older he also had some issues at school. He has a on and off dad, so that really got to him. And he always felt like an outsider in school. So he was struggling with his feelings and his sleep. Okay can’t say struggle with sleep because he could fall asleep easily but not get enough sleep and he still wakes up smiling. But I think you know what I mean, from a moms point of view it is struggling with his sleep. In school they noticed that he got upset easily, and got into arguments a lot with other kids.
Since the end of last year I started to do some mindset training with my son. Trying to change the way he looked at things. That what his dad does isn’t because of my son it is because of him. That he is the one making bad choices. I got my son to see it from a different angle. And he read Teen Power. I also started to use Essential Oils for his emotions. Elevation was one I used every morning and Forgive or Balance. I started to use them for a while until he understood a bit how they worked. Now he can choose what oil he needs for the day depending on how he feels. And at night I give him Lavender tea and a Essential Oil blend I made with Cedarwood, Frankinsence, Lavender, Balance, Wild Orange and Fractionated Coconut Oil. It’s in a roller bottle so I put some under his feet before sleep. And guess what?? He is getting a good night sleep now!! I’m so happy. And since the end of January the teachers in his school has noticed a BIG difference in my son. So much that one had to call me to ask what has happened. He is more balanced and he is not getting in to arguments like he used to. And when it comes to his feelings he isn’t as upset at his dad like he used to be. And that feels amazing. So I’m so grateful for the last 6 month and how much things has changed.
So what do I want to say with this blog post?
Mindset and Mother Nature can do a lot for us and for our kids. Get them to think positive, and to see that your thoughts creates your feelings. Empower them and get them to see things in a positive way no matter what. If someone wants to hurt them it got nothing to do with them it got everything to do with the person trying to hurt them. It is okay to be different.
Maybe you want to know what happened to me and my sleep. I’m sleeping SOOO good now and even wake up BEFORE my son some mornings. And that is huge. Of course you say that kids sleep longer the older they get. But this change happened after I started doing my night rituals so I believe it was Mother Nature ;). I don’t get sick that easily anymore. And I’m feeling more balanced now.
