Feeling Stuck in Mom-Land? How to Take Back Control

Hey mamas! Juggling work, kids, and everything in between can leave you feeling like you're on autopilot. The dishes pile up, bedtime battles rage on, and that spark of joy you used to have as a parent seems to have dimmed. But what if I told you there's a way to reclaim your power and find peace in the parenthood pandemonium?


The answer lies within you, specifically in your solar plexus chakra. This fiery energy center governs your willpower, confidence, and sense of personal authority. When balanced, it allows you to set healthy boundaries and create a nurturing environment for yourself and your family.


Here's the thing: many of us operate from a depleted solar plexus. We let external pressures dictate our routines, leading to resentment and exhaustion. But by reconnecting with your inner strength, you can rewrite the script and establish a system that works for YOU.


Actionable Steps to Reclaim Your Power


Before You Take Back Your Power:

Aspect

How It Used To Be

Daily Routine

Dictated by kids' schedules, external commitments

Boundaries

Fuzzy, inconsistent enforcement

Decision Making

Reactive, influenced by guilt or pressure

Self-Care

Non-existent, sacrificed for family needs



After You Take Back Your Power:

Aspect

How It Is Now

Daily Routine

Structured with family input, prioritizing quality time and relaxation

Boundaries

Clear and communicated effectively, consequences enforced with love

Decision Making

Proactive, based on your values and family's well-being

Self-Care

Integrated into your schedule, essential for maintaining energy and patience

Here's how to get started:

  1. Solar Plexus Power Session: Dedicate 15 minutes daily to self-reflection. Meditate, journal, or simply breathe deeply while focusing on your solar plexus area (just above your belly button). Visualize its golden light growing brighter as you connect with your inner strength.

  2. Family Meeting: Gather your troops, even the little ones! Discuss your desire for change and brainstorm ideas for a new family routine. Let everyone have a voice and encourage collaboration.

  3. Create a Vision Board: This visualizes your ideal family life. Include images representing peace, relaxation, and quality time spent together. This acts as a constant reminder of your goals. You could even make this a family activity!

  4. Set Boundaries with Love: Communicate your new expectations clearly and lovingly. Be firm but fair, and follow through on consequences when necessary. Empower your children to take responsibility within their capabilities.

  5. Prioritize Self-Care: Schedule time for activities that refuel your Soul. Whether it's a yoga class, a hot bath, or reading a good book, carve out time for yourself and stick to it. A happy mama makes a happy home!


Remember mama, you are the captain of your ship! By tapping into your solar plexus and establishing your own rules and routines, you can move from feeling overwhelmed and empowered, leading your family with confidence and reclaiming your sense of purpose as a mom. It's time to shine brightly from your own center!
