With my kids I am trying to get to a place of comfort. I am doing my best but the old conditioning is harder to let go[for me] when it comes to my kids. I was taught that if they have a fever give them Motrin or Tylenol, let them run around and allow them to run down their bodies even more. My instinct is to let the fever run it's course with no medicine. But then I get scared of harming my Angels. I have come to a place of slowly seeing what happens. Now I only give them medicine for fevers when it gets VERY high and if it is high right before bed. Simply because I can not watch them if I am sleeping. My ego fights with my inner voice and I find it hard to decipher what is"best" for them. I feel some fear because it is not my body and I can't always tell what is going on within them. I do not take medicine. I let whatever is going on to run it's course. But I am deeply in tune with my body and if I was to truly get scared I would get my butt to a doctor. But how do I know what to do with the kids? So the voice of the ego and social conditioning is what is being released at this time. I am seeking a place of knowledge, intuition and wisdom.
As with myself, I know that the kids bodies are telling us something as well. But they were brought up on dairy and cooked foods. I have gone Organic[when available] with the dairy and I am bringing in more and more Raw Foods. This is still a process and the older kids 12 & 7 are not going as easily as the 3 and 5 year old. I am grateful for the medicine for helping me with my kids but I would like to get to a place where we are in charge of our health and will no longer have to have this as a concern. I would also like to say that it is not often that my kids need to have any medicine at all but this is what is coming up.
Does anyone know any good books on this subject? I am seeking a place within that has wisdom, intuition and also having the knowledge to back it up.=-)
