Spiritual coach, Jerry Sargaent reveals the key ingredients to a home full of smiles – pass it on!
What you need:
A generous helping of communication
It’s important to communicate feelings openly; if you sense something is not working, speak up. Bottled-up emotions will fester and boil until they eventually explode and cause unnecessary pain. Likewise, you should encourage your family to be vocal. It’s important to share the good and the potentially not so good. Communication is a mission critical secret to a happy home.
A whole lot of unconditional love
Subconsciously, we sabotage relationships because our ego fuels our minds with destructive thoughts. Let your family know that you love them and that you are there for them. And if a disagreement arises, say your piece, then totally let it go. If you don’t, you will put subconscious conditions on the love you give them.
A giant dollop of honesty
Be truthful, always. The minute you tell a lie for fear of hurting someone or speaking your truth, you are on a slippery slope to a pool of frustration and pain. Stand in your truth and communicate feelings from your heart. When you do, focus some of your conscious attention in your heart so you can send unconditional love. This way, the vibration will be felt by the person on the receiving end, and they’ll see that you’re speaking out of love, not because you are judging or criticising.
An abundance of equality
Let’s get one thing clear, there is no boss of the house; everyone is equal, each family member plays a vital role in the family unit and everyone’s opinion matters. So often parents tell their children to do this or that. Although they need direction, children are pure, wise and fearless – they have so much to teach us, so it’s imperative that we show them respect. When they speak, listen, and when you want them to do something, don’t tell them, ask them.
A willingness to learn
When you look for the good in all situations, you will surely find it. If you see problems as problems and look to blame, you will cause yourself pain. Instead, turn every obstacle into an opportunity for growth. Each time a family member says or does something you disagree with, ask yourself what you’re being shown and what you can learn. When you do, life will grow new wings.
A leveled spoonful of balance
Balance is often hard to find, but without it your family ship will surely sink. You must find it between home life and work life, between your children and your partner, your ‘me’ time and family time, after all space is important, and so are you.
A sprinkling of calm
This is the trait of any great leader and is extremely important when it seems like the household is experiencing World War III. Lead by example, maintain a calm position and send love from your heart. Joining in with the chaos and confusion will only lower your vibration and prolong the pain. The more cool, calm and collected you remain, the quicker situations will turn around.
A final dash of acceptance
Once you accept situations, you can find a solution or a remedy. When you resist what is happening, it will persist. Befriend each situation and you will transcend it. Everything is always perfect as it is; everything that happens in your life is sent to help you grow, to offer you strength, knowledge and wisdom. Start unlocking the good that life has to offer you.
Life does not give you anything you can’t handle. You have the skills, energy and willpower to deal with every situation
