The Bio-Stepmom Peace Negotiator
I'd like to share with you the "levels of Co-Parenting," from an expanded consciousness-holistic vantage point and how we work with stepfamilies:
The levels of co-parenting in a stepfamily: where a child (or children) go back and forth between two homes.
The base line foundation within the levels of co-parenting is:
Mending fences while building bridges.
The fence would be the biological parents. This includes the time they were together to date and all that the children experienced from their birth to now.
That's the first level.
Biological (mom and dad)
The bridge would be the who in each house post divorce (separation or whatever the status between parents may be)
That's the second level.
Bio-step (mom and stepdad or stepmom and dad)
The third level of co-parenting is everything that happens as the children are moving from one house to another. The space in between. The movement from house A to house B and from house B to house A.
Level one: Biological: Mom and Dad
Level two: Biological and Step (Mom and stepdad’s house and Stepmom and Dad’s house)
Level three: the space between level one and two which the children travel.
In this way, all of the adults involved are all responsible for who they are, what they send out and how mindful they are about doing no harm to themselves, each other and the children as the children experience the full reality of their Expanded Family landscape. Aka level one, level two and level three.
Our company, Expanded Consciousness is all about taking what is and moving it where you want it to go. Where divorced parents usually want their children's lives to go is often the same. It's really the "how," to get them there and "who," should (and shouldn't) get them there that takes parents off track as it relates to what they truly want.
Mending fences while building bridges allows room for the fullness of honoring the co-creation of the precious children, as well as the building of the bridge.
The bio-stepmom compass creator primarily handles level two of the co-parenting levels. However, it also filters softly and adds healing value to level one and level threeas well.
Just as the Peaceful Exchange Program primarily handles Level three co-parenting (the exchange between homes) and that program has massive power to positively impact Level One and Level Two Co-Parenting: In addition to helping adults heal in a way that most of their life energy lives in the present which gives them more power to be in solution oriented in the present.
All of the books, programs and coaching sessions offered through Expanded Consciousness are designed for the person who is inspired to by the book, implement the programs or wants guidance into how to take what is true in their family life and move it to the place they want it to go.
What Expanded Consciousness does not do is: we do not help you change the other person to be exactly as you need them to be. We would be sorry about that, however-we have seen miracles happen (mostly in reverent time) for families by not trying to change or control anyone else and instead work within ourselves.
Self love allows you to open your heart. Being full with an open heart makes it much easier to master the Reverent Communication that will work within your stepfamily based on the people in your stepfamily.
