Tantra Beginnings Part I: Gifts to the Children
I left the Tantra Circle with an wonderful afterglow and in eager anticipation to join up with my family.
They were waiting for me to join them for dinner at a friend’s gathering. I was so happy to see the kids. I swooped each kid up and showered them with kisses.
Dinner with friends at this new Persian Restaurant was so enjoyable and the kids had a great time amongst the friends.
Later that night before bedtime, the kids were motivated to quicken their nighttime routine with a promise of a “bedtime massage” from Mommy.
The eldest ( 11year old ) allowed the younger (7 year old) to go first in hopes I will give the later a longer massage.
All was quiet and my sweet ‘lil guy was all ‘prepped’ and ready. After delightful giggles and aaaahs from his session, it was my sunshine girl’s turn. She waited patiently studying my moves so she can practice later..
During the massages I snuck in the deep breathing. The kids are so receptive to following the flow of my breath…and all throughout the massages, being ever so present.
My son and I gazed into each other’s eyes…often times he can read my thoughts so easily through my eyes.
This time I asked him to stare into my eyes a bit longer to see if he can see me talk through them without words spoken..
“Sweetness, see if you can see Mommy say ‘ I love you’ through my eyes..” is what I said to him.
I looked at his sweet porcelain doll like face with crimson cheeks…those big amethyst brown eyes adorned with an abundance of long lashes…
We gazed with such loving light…”Mom I love you so much” he says.
He placed his little hands on my face and stroked with such tenderness. We embraced and more showering of kisses. After his massage, he eagerly tries his hand in massaging me while I work on my sunshine girl..
When it was Mommy’s turn to lie down, each of the children had cultivated their own massage technique and was practicing on me…
They’ve already acquired intuitively healing hands and so eager to please..
It was time for bed. My son hums a night lullaby and I sing a bedtime tune with him..so delicious..I go crazy in love each time.
I go to my daughter ..as we kiss goodnight and give each other hugs…
She looks up and says with a smile from ear to ear.. ” Mommy I’m so happy you’re my mommy..”
