Father, An Energy Tonic

When I speak of father, all I think about is a strong man who is the head of the family and is all the time concern about the family member and provides all the necessary support that every family requires.

A role model, a good friend, a brother, a leader, a loving Dad, this is how I describe my FATHER. Tall, striking, high-spirited, joyful and having a strong personality always wear a pleasant smile on his face, I wonder where does he get all that energy to keep himself active all the time. A very helpful and friendly nature makes him special. A financial adviser and a protector always on his toes and a better coach like every other father he is very caring and concern about his daughters. A father’s daughter’s affection is the most livable in the world.

I always remember his precious advice that he gave us time to time while were growing up. They were truly very useful for us even today, we always found him in our back giving us all the moral support. My mother told me that when I was born everybody was shocked, oh! It’s a daughter again. How nice if it would be a son.

These were some words of my father’s friends and associations. My father held me carefully and hugged me tight and answered them, my first daughter is my heart and she is my soul. I am lucky to have two pretty angels at my home. I had an elder sister who has been one year elder to me. He kissed our forehead and blessed us with all the happiness.

One day, when I was in class five my teacher beat me up for not finishing my homework. I was all in tears and complained to my father as soon as I reached home. How could a teacher hit me in front the class? I shall never go to the school. It was a minor thing, but for me it was her rudeness towards me in front of the class. It was my mistake in not completing the work.

That day my father gave me some advice on how to deal with the problems.

His words were; you are a girl, and girls are always strong and firm on whatever they do.

First find out our own mistakes, then blame others.

Believe in you, have self-confidence.

World has full of obstacles, try to overcome all the obstacles one by one.

Learn through your experience.

The world is not worth crying for and never let others cry.

Give respect and get respect.

Always help the people at the time of calamity.

Respect elders and obey them.

Have sympathy towards animals and needy or poor’s.

Enjoy everything good food, cloths, friends, traveling and learning new things.

Educate yourself and others.

Learn through nature, surroundings and elders.

Knowledge is the most valued thing that no one can steal or take away from you.

Live life and let others live.

Take care of your health and others too.

Have faith in God and idealist thinking.

I and my elder sister were friendly to our father; we never felt left alone and were supported by him.

He motivated us in sports and other educational activities.

Today, enjoying success in our life we (I and my sister) take the advice of our father in every mode of life.

Now it’s my children’s turn to gain knowledge from him.

My words fall short to thank for everything he gave us.

Dad Diary: The Sonogram Experience

As an expectant dad, I sometimes feel left out of the pregnancy experience. My wife, on the other hand, as the mum to be, is getting all the focus and attention. So, I was looking for a way to reconnect with the entire pregnancy journey. I was thrilled when our gynaecologist prescribed the first sonogram in the pregnancy.

I’ve heard that fathers who are part of the first sonogram are able to bond with the unborn baby more easily. Up until now, I had created an image of my baby in my mind. This would mean that I actually get to see my child for the very first time. Hear the heartbeat.

So, on the appointed day, I drove my wife to the local diagnostic clinic. We waited for our turn for about 20 odd minutes or so. My wife was made to lie down. I made doubly sure that she was comfortable. The technician arrived and exchanged a few pleasantries with the both of us. I don’t even know what my replies were. All I could think about was my baby and what he or she was going to look like.

The very first ultrasound image of my unborn child is a powerful moment for expectant fathers and I totally bear witness to that. I was staring at the monitor and there my baby was. Possibly not any bigger than the size of a pea. I cried like a baby when I first heard the heartbeat. I couldn’t believe this was real. I couldn’t believe my wife was carrying around another human life inside of her. I couldn’t believe I was going to be a dad.

This was one of the key moments for me as an expectant father that established the reality of the coming child. It also reassured me that everything in the pregnancy was going well.

One of my friends who’d recently had a baby, had once told me about how he had felt seeing that first ultrasound of his baby. “My heart started beating faster just to hear a life – boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. It just felt like – the feeling’s indescribable, I was just blown away, like my eyes filled up but it’s like I won’t cry, I just was so happy to hear it… The heartbeat is like letting me know it’s on the way, get ready.”

Being a responsible parent meant that I needed to make sure that I have a steady job because my child’s eating depended on me. If I was going to be out of a job that would mean my child would go hungry and I’d rather my child ate before I did. While some may say that these are just drastic, random thoughts, but I did think of these things. Most dads have plans and dreams that extend beyond the immediate future of the baby and across the child’s lifespan.

As I drove home with my wife, I got some time to reflect on the role that I will be playing in my baby’s life. This was a key step in preparing towards serious parenthood.

Memories of a Loved One Are Something That Can Be Treasured and Replayed in Your Mind at Will

Emotional energy can bring about a powerful ability to release comfort and ease. Recollections of friends and relatives, if done in a healthy way, can be a peaceful release and powerful flow of reminiscent energy to draw comfort to yourself, during the bleak or sadder times in life. Or, to invoke a memory, or a fleeting moment of pleasure, even if only in your mind; do it for your own selfish pleasure; allow yourself to connect to your more spiritual memories and apply your intellect to remember the lessons or words that gave you happiness in your heart or inner peace in your soul, when you seek it the most.

Relatives and friends are a unique thread, by our emotional connection to them, or in our current life, shared joy and life experiences. I connect more, to my relatives, that were in my environment, as a child, the most. YOU can recognize us, by our bright-red foreheads that we get, when we are feeling flush,or by rosy, red cheeks, that we display when we are feeling feverish or ill. And most of all, by the little sounds and quips, that we utter, or when we repeat something extremely funny that my dad said or did.

When my dad was alive and well, I enjoyed listening to him, telling me jokes, always feeding my mind with wise antidotes and talking about adventures. Dad was a real joker,and would not let a conversation go by without getting you to chuckle and release such loud bursts of laughter that you always had to cover your mouth, with both hands, fearing that your bursts of laughter would bring stares and unwanted attention. In his presence, I really felt loved and treasured. I chuckled and humbly agreed and really do miss being in my dad’s company…

Dad always spoke candidly and honestly to me, that’s probably what I miss the most, the love, honesty and humor of my father. If dad gave you a gleaming look in his eye, you knew that extended laughter would soon ensue.

One day we were out driving on a very busy highway, in route to the airport. When he spoke about the car driving in front of him on the 405 Freeway in California, rush hour after 5:00 P.M on a weekday, you knew that a tale, or comical joke was soon forthcoming. DAD just made me laugh so hard I had to contain my stomach muscles securing a hearty belly laugh, driving in L.A (Los Angeles) traffic, of course, is so bad,infuriating that something comical would usually transpire, we had to make a lane change, because the driver ahead was placing us in danger, I knew my dad would react to the stress, until we got the opportunity to switch to another lane. A man going 35 on the fast lane,was tying up the already congested traffic, during the busy rush hour, so dad would do a much calculated, methodical, yet quick lane change, and get in front of this slow driver and start driving 10 miles per hour.( Not at all what I expected him to do), I said dad, “that was terrible,” and dad said,” I know, but there are bad drivers like that – that don’t belong on the busy freeway, or anywhere, and sometimes ya just gotta laugh about life, and make a stressful situation fun!” “Gotta let things Go,” Hurt no one, and laugh at silly things that are outta your control!”

That’s what I miss the most in my life, having a really cool dad! LOVE YOU DAD.. He would never laugh at me when I presented him with my hand-written songs and poetry. Everyone has a friend or relative that they resonate with on a higher level of spiritual intellect and understanding. There are so many opportunities to share your truth and powerful, energy exchange if you take the time to discover the people that surround you, or are open, and willing to allow yourself to get to know them better.

I enjoy learning from you and from others offering me knowledge continuously!
