Awesome Mother Award

Awesome Mother Award Certificate

Yesterday I went to visit a woman about a blessing and naming ceremony for her second-born child. She has a boy who is just about to turn one, who seemed full of energy and determination, as well as a little girl just two years and a couple of months old, who was into everything.. Her partner is currently working away on the rigs.

After just half an hour in her home, I was deeply inspired by the courage and grit of women who survive the experience of having two babies within a short period of time. Just keeping them both alive is a full-time occupation!

As the mother of just one boy, now eighteen years old and beginning to find his own way in the world, I was sharply reminded of how all consuming, exhausting, anxiety provoking – and often inadequately celebrated – is the task of nurturing children. Especially when you are on your own and/or have more than one child under the age of six to care for.

I felt moved to create this special award certificate, which I hope you will be inspired to print out and share with any women in your circle of family and friends who are currently mothering young children.

In the coming year i shall sing, i shall dance, i shall make magic.
I shall commune deeply with the Creative Process.
I shall make love with every fibre of my being.
In the coming year I shall choose
to be guided by the hungers of my soul,
and take the time to cultivate
a rich relationship
with the inner life of my own imaginings.
In the coming year i shall accept
the invitation
to be receptive and responsive to the flowering of my own being,
to appreciate the magnificent abundance of all my experience,
and to regularly express my gratitude for so many blessings experienced by me.
As the year unfolds, i commit to do all within my power to cultivate
an unshakeable faith in the fundamental Goodness of Life,
And allow that more and more of my actions
and reactions
now spring instinctively from this hallowed space.

Prelude – sandtray play
Epilogue – New Year Explorations

If you would like to join me for a play date in the new year, i have some openings on Tuesday mornings in Fremantle. Do get in touch!

Blessings, Ishara

Befriend the one in you who is dubious (or even down-right cynical) about the nostalgia, family expectations and commercial hype that seem to build to a frenzy as ‘Xmas’ approaches…

Ishara’s Service Charter

  • I support clients to clearly articulate in words the changes they wish to create or co-create in their own lives, to paint a sharply defined picture and get a clear sense of how it feels to realise their creative intentions for their own lives.
  • I challenge my clients to reach for a deeper insight into the limiting or empowering nature of their own beliefs and motivations – enabling ‘aha!’ moments.
  • I effectively create a safe and supportive creative space in which clients can explore and play with ideas and options they might otherwise not dare to allow themselves.
  • I trust and empower my clients to identify their own next steps forward.
  • I consciously cultivate a deep and abiding trust in the process – the process of coaching, the process of life, my own and other people’s – to take us to exactly where we need to go in order to co-create greater awareness, choice and aliveness
  • I regularly pause to reflect on my work – actively looking to grow as a person and as a coach through my own experiences both of coaching others and of being coached.
  • Every week I take time out to rest, play and refresh myself – dipping into the wellsprings of creativity and spirit in my own being – so that I come to my work juicy and of good heart.
  • I actively seek out new opportunities for learning, to hone my skills and understandings through reading, researching, and interacting with other creative & healing professionals, so that I can serve my clients even better.
