Conscious Mothering in the context of Avalon

February 13, 2014 by Dr. Catherine Schultz, Ph.D.  

A friend recently moved to Avalon, Australia and also asked me to write a bit about my process being a conscious mother parenting a 2 year old. Here is her description of Avalon and how it equates to my experience as a conscious mom.

Avalon, the island of apples which men call “The Fortunate Isle” (Insula Pomorum quae Fortunata uocatur) gets its name from the fact that it produces all things of itself; the fields there have no need of the ploughs of the farmers and all cultivation is lacking except what nature provides. Of its own accord it produces grain and grapes, and apple trees grow in its woods from the close-clipped grass. The ground of its own accord produces everything instead of merely grass, and people live there a hundred years or more. There nine sisters rule by a pleasing set of laws those who come to them from our country.[9]

 This is also my experience of motherhood … Phaedra and I are the Field in our essence and what appears to be needed arises in the moment, abundantly. This includes books, homeopathic remedies, herbs for both of us as tools as needed … and then there is just the revel and play in the Now. Whatever is appearing is also part of an infinite Now moment so the past and the future are Here as well. This is true for each of you as mothers to older children. You and your children are, in essence, the Infinite Field and then your particular forms arise Within That for various complex exchanges.

My experience in raising Phaedra right now is that she has very strong emotions that she has no words for … all part of the sensory motor brain … a dream like state … without a lot of vocabulary. My friend who wrote a book called Parenting for Peace recently visited and said that guided imagery and visualization can help mom’s ‘re-parent’ this aspect of themselves if they get triggered along with their child. Then I also am giving her words and telling her about my own feelings in the moment. Growing the emotional line of development one moment at a time.

As a conscious, older mom with lots of tools and life experiences, I find that I can essentially be simultaneously aware of ‘us’ as the Field and that our body-minds are holographic … she is included and transcended in me. And if a ‘trigger’ arises in me, I can put my Awareness Within the pocket of contraction within my body-mind, let any memories etc. reveal themselves and complete. A kind of conscious re-parenting, guided imagery, back to the source .. addressing it within the sensory motor brain consciously. I can also sometimes consciously find images completing holographically for the entire noosphere within the Field which might potentially help all mothers be able to do this at any point in their motherhood.

My sense too is as mothers such as you become more and more conscious of your Self, the Infinite Field, this heals the children whatever ‘age’ chronologically because the Field which we all are is Now.

Knowing that it’s all okay … the Field produced Life through us and Is Us. Any mistakes arose from and return Here. Peace and Love prevail.
