| Spirituality & Natural Family Living
Attachment Parenting itself is a highly spiritual undertaking.
It creates the foundation of not only a loving human, but also a loving society.
A spiritual family needs to connect with more than its nuclear family or even its Village or Extended Family. This is well explained by O.M. Aïvanhov:
"When we wish to start a family, we have to make an effort to go outside ourselves, to open ourselves to another person, a husband or a wife, and later to children. But the mistake humans have made is in not understanding that they ought to have widened the family circle even further and extended their love to other creatures and to the whole universe. This is why, even with their family and friends, they are still not happy. Happiness means not stopping at one person, or two, or ten or a hundred... but loving to infinity. So, continue to love those you already love, but widen the circle of your love still further so you can have exchanges with all the higher creatures – the angels, the archangels, the heavenly hierarchies and the Lord. Then, your family and friends will be enriched, strengthened, made beautiful and purified because of all the sublime states you nourish in your heart and soul."
Another way to practise Spirituality & Natural Family Living is to be close to Nature's seasons. Do or create things together that correspond to the seasonal energies. For example, here is the Celtic way (with dates for the Northern Hemisphere):
Witness the stillness of Winter Solstice [20-23 December]
Celebrate new beginnings at Imbolc [2 February]
Plant our seed-intentions at Spring Equinox [19-22 March]
Dance our growing delights at Beltane [1 May]
Enjoy the fullness of Summer Solstice [19-23 June]
Resonate with ripeness at Lammas [1 August]
Give thanks for our harvests at Autumn Equinox [21-24 September]
And acknowledge completion at Samhain [1 November]
