The Journey Umbilika

Hello and a warm welcome to Umbilika! Frankly I have to keep pinching myself to realise that I’m really here, at last, finally, with this beautiful website as my home, my platform, my soapbox and portal for intuitive, Higher- Self guided expression. It’s been a long time coming, A hugely long time coming. I can honestly say that I beat the elephant in terms of a gestation period! The idea and impetus to create Umbilika, my new ‘baby’ literally began when I had my own first real  human baby more than 23 years ago. Something profound changed in me when I fell pregnant unexpectedly (we refer to him as our best surprise ever!). I felt something shift deep in my soul, somewhat […]

Lose the label, find the child. Reframing Aspergers.

  “It’s time to take joy in everything that our kids are.”- Dan Pearce. Single Dad Laughing So you have a child with Aspergers. If you are looking for sympathy you’re in the wrong place.  If you are looking for empathy and a way to release yourself and your child from destructive victim energy, you’re right on time; you’re perfectly aligned. Diversity is everything. It brings beauty, it builds love, it facilitates change; it’s a crucial part of evolution. Believing that divergence is a problem is the real problem. Buying into the idea that there are ‘norms’ is destructive and unhelpful. Choosing to re-frame differences is empowering, it breeds acceptance (especially self-acceptance), it cultivates tolerance and literally creates new worlds and enhanced, enlightened […]

Chapter One Part One. The Need for a Re-LOVE-ution: Demystifying Change

Chapter One. Our Kids, Our Future: The Need for a Re-LOVE-ution. Part One: Demystifying Change.   “Until we accept the fact that life itself is founded in mystery, we shall learn nothing.”  Henry Miller       What’s Going On? On the off chance that you hadn’t noticed, children are calling for change.  This isn’t a petulant whine, or a spoilt brat whinge, its something very real and powerful. It could be quite worrying but more importantly It’s something that’s crucial to our collective evolution. There has been a 1300 % rise in cases of Autism and official diagnoses for ADHD have escalated dramatically over the last 20 years.  Additionally, children are now increasingly obese, depressed, medicated, involved in substance abuse, have […]

The Dance of the Divine: Parenting from your Energetic Blueprint.

I write this at the time of the Equinox, which falls smack bang in the middle of a Solar Eclipse (March 8) and a Lunar Eclipse (March 23). Nature’s cycles and their energies planetary or otherwise, play a big part in my understanding of the parenting process. They have for many years been a point of access to increased intuition and subsequent information. As I pen this, the energies of nature are responding and collaborating with those of the Earth, the Heavens and more importantly our own. There is essentially nothing outside of us that influences us; we are not separate but dance a cosmic tango where no one entity truly leads or follows. Everything is connected as our consciousness expands the […]
