Relationships are incubators for our personal growth and evolution. Each person in our life mirrors an aspect of ourselves that requires reflection and, most often, development. Cultivating conscious relationships improves the quality of our lives and gives our children a model to follow.
In my book, I talk about four general principles to conscious parenting, and I invite you today to apply them to all meaningful relationships in your life-especially when things get difficult:
- Find calm first.
- Understand the other person’s behavior.
- Establish a feeling of safety.
- Connect emotionally.
All parents need a solid support system in their lives, which can come from healthy relationships with:
- the other parent
- current partner
- close family members
- close friends
- trusted neighbours
- trusted co-workers
- your child’s teachers
- support groups
- a coach
- a therapist
- interest/ hobby groups.
Conscious relationships require deep work of self-awareness on our part. Therefore, we must:
- communicate our boundaries with clarity
- speak our truth with confidence
- respect the other person’s differences
- be willing to let go of unhealthy relationships
- take responsibility for our well-being.

“After one and a half years practicing what I have been learning from the program, I can say I feel like a better person as a whole, a better mother, a better wife, a better woman and human being.I know I still have a lot to learn and heal but I feel so different in a good way. Thanks again and again Mihaela Plugarasu for having this vision and sharing your knowledge with us. 🙏🙏🙏” ( W.)
“Hi Mihaela Plugarasu! Last week I finally had a meeting with my son’s new teacher. She couldn’t understand why I insisted on meeting her until she read my son’s file. She told me that when she met him for the first time this year, he was a completely normal boy, connected in class, totally integrated with his classmates, a fast writer, playing with everyone during the breaks, and even showing emotion if he was not included in some game. That’s the exact opposite of what I would get from school for at least the past 4 years. She said if she hadn’t read the file, she would have never imagined my son used to have all those symptoms and even medication. I explained what a difference it made to now have evidence that this was the result of narcissistic abuse and not ADHD or learning disabilities. I cannot thank you enough for showing me how to support my son all this time in our journey from hell into normal life.” ( G.)
