Legacy Life Podcast

By Sarah Parkes

What legacy do you want to leave for your children? In this podcast I share my journey as I strive to help create a legacy of change, so our children can grow up in a world of possibility, where conscious legacy creation is the norm. Where feminine & masculine qualities are equally valued, & what you look like does not determine your worth. It starts with us, making changes that impact our family & financial freedom. Thinking outside the social norms, embracing respectful parenting approaches; growing soul led businesses that help us live into our wider purpose & impact.

Having Dessert First- An antidote to rewards
Having Dessert First- An antidote to rewards
Are you using rewards with your self & your children? I know ... it's a common method to get them to cooperate & to coerce ourselves too. The downside is the reward often isn't enough motivation, & it can then become more about getting the reward, that the focus on doing the thing or doing it well disappears. I don't know about you, but with things I don't want to do the rewards doesn't stop the procrastination. Try having the dessert first. When we let go that we have to control them for them to behave well, and replace that with trust that they know how to do the right thing, the best thing, the kind thing, our relationships changes.

No more nice mum ...
No more nice mum ...
A foundation of the skills I share with parents is about acknowledging, owning & sharing our feelings as a family. Mums can fall into the trap of trying to be nice rather than authentic. In this podcast we talk about healthy authenticity... "The dance of being really authentic, whilst doing it in a healthy balanced way" This invites us to be a leader rather than a servant. "Parenting is a leadership role, we are guiding ourselves & our children" Loving boundaries really help with this.  Have a listen to hear our thoughts on it... Aliza Said is a certified mama marriage coach and podcast host of New Mama Marriage Bliss. She guides new mamas to reconnect with their husbands even in the messiness of motherhood. In those crazy days when you feel like you're drowning in dishes and diapers, Aliza guides moms to safe shores of love and connection, passion and fun.

I'm failing as a parent
I'm failing as a parent
We all have bad days, an awful morning with our children can leave us feeling like a failing parent. It feels like we are never going to be able to get them to ... get to school on time, stop fighting with their sibling, stop having tantrums, stop hitting people (whatever your challenge is right now).

In this episode I share something that makes the biggest difference to feeling confident about parenting, business & anything else we do in life. Have a listen ... Change takes time, we all know about consistency... but what does it actually mean? Doing it long enough to work.  But how do we know how long is long enough?

International Women's Day 2022: Are you being palatable?
International Women's Day 2022: Are you being palatable?
This International Women's Day I have been reflecting on a big question. Are you being palatable? So many women dim their light to be palatable, acceptable ... the mother, daughter or wife you feel you should be. I have always felt I'm too much & often found myself trying to be more acceptable & less me. I know you probably wouldn't think it to look at me. When we put everyone else first & everything else first we lose a sense of what we actually want.  What if you changed the standard of sacrifice to honesty (or something else that resonates)?  What would become available for you & your family? What can you let go of that you are doing right now that other people in your family could be doing? What do you really want? What actions would you take in alignment with honesty? What is the legacy that you hold in your heart & want to bring into the world? Some big questions for you this week! Your host, Sarah Parkes, is a mum of 3, a speaker, author & legacy life coach.

Moving away from the "toxic expression of manhood", that is perpetuated in our world. "Being conscious of this & being able to make different conscious choices".    This is why the Awakening legacy book has female & male voices within, to acknowledge the importance of both & redress the balance in a small way within the makeup of the authors.

Footprints in the Sand
Footprints in the Sand
In this episode, we explore Mel’s journey to writing her chapter in Awakening Legacy. Getting beyond the world of personal development into a more spiritual realm. How “Legacy happens in the messy moments”, which brings expansion. “From the darkness comes the light”. She also lets us know what the essence of Tantra is for her … it’s not what you might think! This is an insightful one … Quote from her chapter "The desire to create a legacy is a valuable part of the journey of self-realisation, motivating and teaching us self-confidence, self-belief and our creative capacity to manifest what we desire. And in that we start to understand that it is the simplicity to life that is key.” To find out more about the book, get yout copy and download a free pdf to take part in our #RandomActsOfAwakening visit www.awakeninglegacy.co.uk Mel trained as a Medical Microbiologist (BSC honours) and in International Overseas Trade (Diploma from the Institute of Export) before entering the commercial world as an international marketing and business development manager. Her journey led her to evolve a deeper understanding around beliefs and purpose that took her into the realm of exploring spirituality, our existence as a Soul.  Ever the scientist, Mel explored the ancient religious texts, challenged her own thinking around existence and started on her esoteric path in Buddhism, Mindfulness, Yoga, Shamanism, Spiritual Healing, Mediumship and Reiki. Her exploration of energy landed her at the door of the most ancient teachings of Tantra and Ayurveda. The path of personal growth eventually leads to spiritual growth and so The Alchemy of Living was born.

Spark for a Spark
Spark for a Spark
When you are faced with death … what can you do? Smile at fear ~ Chögyam Trungpa "When you are frightened by something, you have to relate with fear, explore why you are frightened, and develop some sense of conviction. You can actually look at fear. Then fear ceases to be the dominant situation that is going to defeat you. Fear can be conquered. You can be free from fear, if you realize that fear is not the ogre. You can step on fear, and therefore you can attain what is known as fearlessness. But that requires that, when you see fear, you smile."

I received some guidance about my next steps, my next expansion, it felt amazing ... then the fear kicked it. What if I fail, what if I can't do it ... what if nobody wants to play. The procrastination started and I realised why I had stalled, and busied myself ... "It's our light not our darkness that most frightens us!" Marianne Williamson's poem, famously quoted by Nelson Mandela   Well it's time to shine ...

Freedom with learning in Early childhood
Freedom with learning in Early childhood
Chat with Sue Palmer, early years advocate and campaigner for raising the age at which formal learning starts through the Upstart campaign. We discuss what shifts in thinking are needed & how can we do that? "Real play is needed for our children between 3-7. We are squeezing the play out & putting huge pressure on them to achieve, whether or not they are ready for it. Then we wonder why we have a mental health crisis!" Sue Palmer, a former primary headteacher in Scotland, is a literacy specialist, writer, presenter and ‘childhood campaigner’. She has written over 200 books, software packages and TV programmes for schools on aspects of literacy and many hundreds of articles for the educational and national press.  Over the last ten years, her books on child development in the modern world – notably Toxic Childhood (second edition 2015) – have led to frequent media appearances and comments about changes in children’s lifestyles. Her latest book, Upstart: the case for raising the school starting age and providing what the under-sevens really need, was published in 2016.   You can connect with her here https://www.suepalmer.co.uk/ & with the upstart campaign here https://www.facebook.com/upstartscotland This link might help you know where the campaign she chairs stands just now. So close, and yet still so very far away from achieving change: https://www.scottishparliament.tv/meeting/members-business-upstart-scotland-march-9-2021 To Connect further with Sarah Parkes check out www.spcaoching.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/howtotalkuk/ Sarah Parkes is a mum of 3, a speaker & legacy coach.

When the tiredness hits
When the tiredness hits
This is a quiet one- whack it up after the intro, lean in and don't worry it does get louder! In this episode I look at the importance of taking time to rest, fill up your cup, surrender to our need to rest. More time with our families over the last year has made it even more important to take that time where we can. As children return to school in the UK the temptation is to rush to "catch up", when you actually want to enjoy some of the space created. Rather than feeling guilty, it's ok to take a breath, to take some time for you. It's been intense! Give yourself permission... What's your biggest takeaway from this episode?

Letting go of perfection
Letting go of perfection
I've been thinking about doing a podcast for a while & just not starting. I realised I was allowing perfection to stop me.  I'm not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, & that's just it, we can allow having to do something well stop us get started. I am striving to show up authentically, & I know that getting going & sharing my message no matter how imperfectly is better than not getting going at all! So hear it is my very first episode of Legacy Life Podcast ... recorded with a small person sleeping next to me in the early hours of the morning.
