Take them seriously. Do what you can when you can. Listen to them with your ears and your intuition. Allow them to be heard, seen and know they matter. And mostly? Call in professional help whenever you can. It takes a village to grow -we all need a tribe. We all wAnt to be seen, heard and know we matter.
Yesterday my son shared that Tuesday night he had dark thoughts and wished he was no longer among the living. Naturally, as his mom, I said we needed to go to emergency. He was with his respite worker and he and I attended emergency together in support of my son. My only son who is my pride, my joy and my heart. The last few months haven't been easy. My son's special needs means that at times he can't share what is in his head or heart with adequate words. Sometimes he becomes overloaded. Never as much as this time.
You know, as a spiritualist and spiritual teacher/angel intuitive I watched energy and how it affected my boy. It was a powerful full moon on the 9th and the end of mercury retrograde and with COVID 19 - the fear in the collective is palpable. For a sensitive soul like Paulo Vincenzo Melo who became overloaded - I am actually proud of us for not brushing this under the rug and instead seeking professionals- To be on the frontlines of healthcare during COVID and to be a part of it for a moment was something I will never forget. There were so many blessings. My son is charming and his soul is good and innocent. He became overwhelmed and wanted help. I sit processing all of this and thanking God, my angels and all of you for the support. As I sat in ER for 12 hours and then this morning - I felt the love and prayers. I could FEEL them. I remained calm, I put my needs aside and prayed for his highest greatest good! His. Not mine. The dr said it never happens that she was on last night and again this morning. She maintained smooth energy. Not fragmented. The whole team is calm and super supportive. However I am going to give myself some credit for also remaining calm and only speaking from an observer and not overtly emotional. Having had Sunny Dawn Johnston as a teacher is helping me walk through all this life with ease, grace and gentleness. I know now I can ASK for help, love, support, prayers, energy and so many of you answered the call. I feel enormously blessed to have my Paulo jr as my son. He continues to be my greatest work. He is one of the most important blessings God entrusted me with. And although I cried for hours last night, with the morning came clarity and decisions I agree with. I trust the helpful people God is sending. I trust Paulo jr spirit and I trust God with my whole heart. I stayed present and kind. I nurtured people in the ER who asked me opinions etc. I silently blessed them and I was praying the whole time. I invoked thousands of angels. God was with me. And I’m so happy Paulo is home.
Mental health is so important. Listen to your kids when they say they don’t feel good. Allow them to be heard. I love you all. Thank you again for allowing me to share and if I can support your journey, if you need an ear, message me to book an appointment to talk.
