Trick or Treat 10.31.17


Happy Halloween! One of my favorite celebrations of the year. Why? It’s fun with no expectations. And, I seriously love candy. Sugary, crunchy, chewy candy. Skittles, starbursts, Swedish fish, sprees, nerds, fireballs. Sweet & sour is the bomb! I don’t allow myself to indulge in candy very often anymore as sugar physically & internally hurts my body. But, tonight I partake. May my body tolerate. 
As you know, Halloween is rich in history. Its origins run deep. I have read about religious meanings and pagan rituals. They say the veil is thinnest on All Hallows’ Eve. 

What ever happened to the shouting at the top of your lungs, “TRICK OR TREAT?!” When you approach my door, BEWARE! Standing in my power is, however, electrifying.

How are you honoring Father’s Day?


Today, I reflect on the men I’ve had in my life as this day is dedicated to fathers. It brings up strong emotions as how does one celebrate abusive fathers and men? 

I won’t go into details here about my childhood and my father.  However, I will say that I kept repeating the pattern with the same abusive behaviors, in all my intimate relationships. 

I can relate it to alcohol and drug addiction as the longer the abuse continues the worse it gets. Being in narcissistic relationships is, however, an addiction. 

I hear stories of good men and good relationships. I’ve met the most amazing men and dedicated fathers in my childbirth classes and birth work.

It brings me immense satisfaction when fathers are eager to learn how to assist their partners during pregnancy, labor & birth. I am a witness to seeing them in action with hands on care and affection for their partner during intense labor. I’ve seen men’s joy when holding their precious newborn. This touches my heart and is healing. 

I understand if today isn’t a day of celebration and the men in your life have caused unbearable pain and heartache. Emotional life long scars of impact. 

I’m happy for you if you grew up in a loving, gentle home with a devoted  father in quiet and safety. It’s a blessing to have a serene environment for children to live and grow while thriving in peace and harmony. This is how it should be. 

If you’re in an abusive relationship, whether it’s emotional, verbal or physical, it will only get worse, just like an addiction. You and your child(ren) deserve better.

Is it really a happy Mother’s Day?

How are you honoring this day?

You’ve made a huge sacrifice to bring your little one(s) into this world!

Some women may have had an easy pregnancy, labor and birth. For some, breastfeeding may have gone easily and smoothly.

For others, they have dealt with excruciating morning sickness, extreme hormonal changes, body image grievances, difficult nursing experiences and pregnancy that, unfortunately, resulted in a loss. 

For some mamas their labor may have started out like their written dream birth plan, but then quickly turned into a horror story nightmare resulting in birth trauma. 

Some may relish motherhood and some may suffer from postpartum depression. 

Some may long to meet their biological mother and will never get the chance. Some may wish they have never met their biological mother. 

Some grew up in love and luxury, some grew up in hate and violence. 

For today, I will set my own birth traumas aside. I grew up with a mom who had a sudden change in plans, but did the very best she possibly could give her children, due to our circumstances. Over the last two years, my mom and I have developed a refreshing understanding of each other. We have spent many nourishing hours together developing a deeper love. For this I’m grateful. 

Whatever memories this day brings for you, I honor you and I hold space for you in my heart. 

But, for today, I hope you find peace on this dedicated day honoring mothers. 

I wish you beautiful mamas a day filled with lots of love and pampering. May it be a day of relaxation! If it isn’t a day of joy, please reach out, you’re not alone. 

Sending you lots of love! -Alda Mills
