Terrible Twos!


Why do children begin to test their parents when they reach the age of two?

My Personal Experience
Maya Eve age two & four months

I noticed a change from the first day of January 2015; she had just turned two years the month before. The change was not gradual nor was there any warnings to what was about to happen.

Suddenly she began to scream, without cause and without reason, just scream continuously in a manner that made the back of your hair stand on end.

Maya Eve up until her second birthday was an angel, she rarely protested and neither objected nor vocally made a scene if she was ever displeased.  Happy to accommodate and go with the flow of life around her, in short she was an absolute pleasure.

Although her determination was clear and strength of character was already shinning out promising a force to be reckoned with.  Nonetheless, it was quite, silent and hidden, Maya was not one to show off her intelligence but rather from her subtle actions, she attempts to give the impression that she is unaware.

Yet when January 1st came her determination and character were no longer hidden, though quite and seriously Wilful, she now screamed it out for all to hear and for mummy to beware!!

At first I was shocked and bewildered for I did not know how to deal with her hysterical screaming that I had never before experienced, and while I searched for reasons and answers as to why she might be acting this way, I continuously blamed myself for perhaps being the cause of this new phase of her life somehow, outside the excuse of just labelling it the terrible twos!

It took many meditations and soul searching sessions and many weeks past before a realisation started to surface clearly through my close observation of Maya.  This was not simply a phase that parents should ignore or tread with care because it’s the terrible twos; I realised that it was way more important and life shaping then that!  The age of two-three is the battle of the wits, yes the toddler will be testing the parent, but let us keep in mind that the toddler is character building, exploring their environment with their own sense of power, pushing the boundaries to see how they can manipulate their environment with all the elements and people within it, yet most importantly they are programming their machine (mind) on the tricks that will work, be effective and allow their desires to materialise.

The toddlers’ point of reference is the role models that represent all males and all females, the mother and father. As they grow this will reflect out to what they will perceive to be an example of how life can be dealt with and how to manipulate people to get what they want based on the treatment and teachings of their parents during the character building age of 2-4.

Maya is a very strong leader personality, a leader personality requires discipline and to understand how to use and work with discipline.  Due to the fact that leader personalities will not listen to others or pay heed, they are leaders, born to lead, born with innate confidence of knowing who they are and where they need to go, knowing that they can have whatever they may desire.  Therefore if a leader personality is not taught discipline and restraint on how to manifest their desires, they will grow stronger with no direction, like a loose cannon about to explode with intense energy that is not focused and has not been taught how to focus.  Such power might be abused for personal agendas and short-sighted entertainment goals, rendering them spoilt and uncontrolled for they are not born to listen or follow but to lead.  If the role models (parents/members of family) of leader personalities toddlers do not match the power, focus and intent of the toddler’s output during the foundation building of their character, it would be too late to make changes later once the character has set with any flaws.

As I realised this I stopped torturing myself that I had done something wrong and began to respond to her based on this theory.  Sure enough as I challenged her strength of character, she came back stronger and stronger each time.  Fearless and her quite determination unwavering, she began testing her Will power and powerful intents against my own, relentlessly and patiently attempting to break me down so she may win her objective.  Each time demanding from me to push her harder and harder back into disciplinary realisations that life will not give you what you want without a fight, a decent fight and one that will test your own endurance.  My message is clear and constant each time, “My dear you will not get far in life throwing tantrums and behaving like a brat, and you will get no where with that behaviour”.  When she eventually gives up and gives in, she looks at me amused and happy with acknowledgement in her eyes that say, “ok mummy I didn’t break you down this time, but I’m going to keep trying!”

I myself do not give up, it is exhausting but each and every time must be exactly the same, I never ignore any of her antics to ensure that she realises I am paying heed and taking care of every action she takes, never give up and never give in, each time the same battle of wits occur between my daughter and I, something beautiful emerges before my eyes.  I notice that my daughters’ character is becoming stronger, more determined, more focused and much more creatively intelligent to try and break me.

There is nothing more beautiful then watching your own child’s character build up stronger and more powerful each day, knowing that you are their sparing partner that will condition your child’s character for the world of tomorrow.

I would not call it the terrible twos, but the character building twos, when your child will challenge the power, focus, intelligence and determination of your own character to build theirs against your own.

If a child grows up a brat due to the parents giving into the child’s whims instead of challenging them to teach them discipline, in such cases every parent knows as much as we love our children and wish to give them everything this world can offer, if we unwittingly spoil them without giving them the tools to deal with people, life and circumstances in the correct manner, we would have condemned them to a life of unhappiness and imbalance.

One Is Not Alive If One Is Not Balanced 


Continued From Main Page…These corporation giants did not and do not force any consumers to eat their products, the choice is always left to the consumer.  However, the giants would entice and seduce their consumers through beautiful marketing and advertising campaigns that would work relentlessly to persuade you to eat and use their products.

As such it is imperative that you as the consumer become aware of all and everything that enters your body and do not take anybody’s word for it, especially not doctors.  Also let us not forget that doctors are not nutritionists or food experts and as such they themselves might not even be aware of the dangers of synthetic foods.

AwakeConBal Lifestyles absolutely warns against chicken, for studies in enlightened eating and body suggested that the fat found in the chicken, even when it is boiled still retain a high percentage of its fat, which then accumulates and builds up in the arteries, and this build up eventually blocks the arteries, causing heart disease.

To gain balance in ones daily life in our modern society is extremely hard, for it is no longer a community based caring society but rather each to their own, it is therefore left to the individual to learn, research and seek knowledge to become an awakened aware evolved being.

At AwakeConBal we aim to create a community service where knowledge can be shared with like-minded people who wish to be more informed, aware and evolved individuals part of a new responsible, free thinking and caring social support circle.

We urge our new community of awakened, confident individuals who constantly seek social and daily balance to begin a new era of evolved education and information with the new generations that will lead tomorrow, with our children.

The first step to a balanced society, balanced daily life and a balanced multidimensional selves is a balanced diet, which must be designed with the awareness of all the chemicals in the food that we daily ingest and the possible results of ingesting such food.  If a child is never introduced to such food, and only the healthier alternatives, then a child would not know any different.
There still is a section of our society that is very aware of all the dangers that plague modern social norms, applying the best protection for their children, which is keeping them well informed of such dangers.  These socially aware individuals work together as a community to give their children a supported social environment in order for them to grow strong and healthy.

As such AwakeConBal wishes to build a similar community in London inviting the modern aware and evolved parent to connect through our new Awakened Parent Workshop.
The workshop is designed to help support young and new families to grow healthy and strong within a community of experience and support, without any religious, social or ethnic biased, purely with a quest for knowledge, balance and confidence as an evolved community that promotes wellbeing, compassion and kindness to self as well as all else.

If you believe you are such a person who wish to know more about AwakeConBal lifestyle philosophies, which includes food, social conduct and wellbeing, whether you are single, just married, with a young family or any other category not mentioned, please read some of our blogs or follow some of the links as highlighted on our various pages or on our websites.

Otherwise please feel free to join one of our wellbeing programs or parent workshops to experience it first hand.

Refined Sugar

Be very aware of beautiful expensive sites, backed by government bodies that promote health and are specifically designed to give peace of mind in order for consumers to continue consuming the dangerous products that may very well keep the country’s economy and industry healthy at the determent of your own health and that of you family.  Here is a perfect example of such a site, clever and beautifully written to squash any doubt regarding processed sugars being highly addictive (specifically to children) and in being a major contributor to the growth of most terminal illnesses, specifically cancer.

Especially interesting is the repetitive sentence that the body burns all sugars the same way!  Except the failure to mention that natural sugars as found in vegetables and fruits contain fibre, which allows the body to slowly breakdown and burn natural sugars that the body needs, while digesting the sugar more efficiently without spiking the insulin sugar levels in your blood, which is the very cause of diabetes.

Note how the question is answered regarding processed sugar, if you keep to the recommended dose then one should not have a problem.  Perhaps as adults and for those of us that exercise a strong sense of daily discipline can keep track of sugar consumption in all our foods, guessing where appropriate which of the sugars can be deemed natural or not.  However children until as late as 10 years will not be able to show such restraints with sugar, which according to how much their brain and body burns on daily average, will induce them only to crave sugar that would be readily available to them without supervision and way above the recommended dosage that would keep them safe from contracting diabetes.
Especially if diabetes already runs in the family, which will render the child more likely to contract it quicker, therefore any site that recommends that one should eat sugar in moderation, only means it is a site advertising pro sugar to induce you to continue being a sugar consumer.   (Click On Image For Example Of The Latter Site)

Advertisements All Pro Sugar

With such advertisements that circulated for decades persuading mums to feed their children sugar, allowing for a few generations to evolve believing that sugar is not bad for you and safe for children, it would make the task of correcting such ideas for the new generations extremely hard, especially considering that everything we eat outside our homes probably includes sugar in one form or another.  While references to sugar in media and by society in general allows sugar to be readily accessible to our young growing children.   This in turn makes the job of extracting this harmful substance from the children’s food intake all the more difficult for aware parents.

If one wishes to know the real story behind processed sugar from its birth to present day, then please take a moment to read these articles, which will give you an idea of the dangers of eating processed sugars

Grain Problem!

In a course for enlightened body and mind where the history of food and how it affects the body was the focal point of the course, the PhD chiropractor and nutritionist highlighted in full that all grains should be avoided for optimum health and vitality.The problem lies with the grain itself being a new food source for humanity as a whole, but today with the farming and treatments of the grain, which makes them toxic (poisonous) to our bodies when ingested and more importantly these toxins remain longer in the body due to the grains taking anything from 3-6 months before completely leaving the bloodstream, as the compounds stick to the walls of our stomach, intestines and arteries until we ingest something that can wash or cleanse them away.  The digestion differs from person to person, but if one was on a daily diet of eating certain grains even once a day, then the accumulation of toxins and substances left over from the consumption of the grain will keep all unwanted toxins rotating in the bloodstream constantly.  It is best to avoid eating grains in a regular healthy diet, limiting oneself to eating some of the listed grains in the link below sparingly (the best six alternative grains).  It is always the individual’s choice, but always remember the side effects to any of the food that is not raw and organic.
