Abracadabra Parenting - I create what I say

Just in case, you do not know by now, or if you know let me remind you what Abracadabra means.

Abracadabra means in Hebrew: I create what I say!
"The word Abracadabra may derive from an Aramaic phrase meaning "I create as I speak." [1] or from the Greek "Αύρα κατ' αύρα" meaning "from Αura to Aura". This etymology is dubious, however, as אברא כדברא in Aramaic is more reasonably translated "I create like the word." In the Hebrew language, אברא translates as "I will create" and כדברא "as spoken". 

Abracadabra School was founded two years ago also in February, on a cold winter evening when Eric was studying on the internet and he came across the explanation of Abracadabra.
My son was studying magic and magic tricks at that time.  
He was very interested in magic, and he had studied online and on youtube and loved this topic. So, when you learn about magic, inevitably you will come across the word Abracadabra! 
On that evening finding the meaning of the word Abracadabra, was more than just a mere learning.
He came out to me in the kitchen, and I could saw on him that he is extremely excited about something.
"You know what magic is ?" he asked me and without even giving me the chance to answer he continued: magic is nothing else but; preparation, practice, and delivery! You can do anything in life all you have to do is prepare, practice, and deliver at the right time to the right place!
I have to say that when I heard this suddenly had the same feeling that he must had: this is why we say life is magic. as life is nothing else just preparing your tomorrow, your future, practicing and delivering!
So, as simple as that we got to the conclusion that our Winner Academy school should be renamed; Abracadabra School, the school where you create what you say! 
A school where:
you learn the importance and power of your thoughts
where you can practice 
 learn that failure is the essential part of the process
learn to deliver to give the world your work, to deliver your results in a way that makes other people happy and contributes to their life.
learn to create your life and emotions and not allow life and emotions to create you
If you are a parent, just give yourself s few moments and think about this; do you build your life or are your emotions are making it?
If you come to the realization, just like I come at that moment, that all those emotions are mostly guiding my life, so maybe now is the time than to change this.
Not only change this but practice it with your children
Wake up from tomorrow and just change the things around. Instead of letting the feelings like, fear insecurity lead your life, step over them do what you believe that you have to do to conquer and manifest the feelings and emotions that you would love to feel and create.
Do not only believe, but also know!
Know that whatever it is there in your heart and gut are only emotions that are other peoples finds mostly, and you will not know what are these until you do not do and feel.
It takes less than a moment, start with a small insecurity and once you will see and feel the change there will be no return! 
Just prepare /what you want to change/ practice, you might not succeed first so remember you are practicing and than....deliver! Do it, feel it and know it!
I promise you will now understand what is the difference when you know!

Would it be just great if your kids would grow up by learning from a very young age to be magicians of their life? 

Would it not be awesome that your children would know that it does not take anything else to do anything in life but always the same 3 step; preparation, practice and deliver!
This is what is all about at Abracadabra School and Ask Theatre; we learn together the magic of creating emotions and living a happy life: this is nothing else but Emotional Intelligence, being smarter with feelings!

What is Love?

A few years ago on a lazy Sunday morning my little son only five years of back then, asked me this question: What is Love?
At first, it seemed a very easy question to answer.
"-What is Love? Love is what we feel when we like somebody very much." 
"-Just as you like me? was immediately the next question. 
"-Yes, just as I like you! 
" What if we do not like somebody, can we still love them?" -it was the next question that arose.
So, from a question that I thought it is very simple to answer, we already were involved in so much more deepness of the conversation.
The big issue is I presume; can we love somebody without like them?
What do you think? 
Well it took me many many years to realize that love, love is something that we are born from and we are born with.
Did you ever saw a new born baby looking at its Mum and do not like her or not looking at her with that profound and subtle look of Love that only babies can have?
So, is it love associated with likeness? Do we need to like who we love and do we love all that we like?
Well,  is hard to have a philosophical chat on a Sunday morning with five years old.
At that moment,  I had not a clue about the next questions that followed.
"Will you always love me? " was the next question
"Even if I will get married to another girl than you?" just like all five years old boys would get married their Mum
"Will you love me if I will die?"  , scary and tuff question for a Sunday morning 
" What if I will have a brother or sister, will you love them more?"
Little by little we went into questions that I realised that are not originally coming from my child. SO I asked him back;
"What do you think what is love?"
" Love is like a sun; he replied very seriously.  It is cozy... and you feel well and safe, and it is funny and thickly as you always need to laugh! "
" Where you feel all this?" I asked my young philosopher 
" Here inside, and he pointed to his tummy, you know where the butterflies live !" 
" So love lives inside you?" I asked curiously
" Yes, yeah, yeah, come the proper answer, you are love! "
" I am?"
"Yes, we all are, can you not see it?" came the unexpected question.
" Sometimes not, I replied, sometimes a meet people who I do not feel that are full of love." - I said and before my eyes, I could see the faces of few persons in the past that I had the problem loving.
" Hahahhaha, laughed  my young philosopher, if love lives inside you then why are you looking for it in others people ?"
I was not prepared for this!
I was not ready to receive my biggest lesson about life and love from my five years old, but the words hit me, and I knew that this is the truth!
Was I looking for love in other people heart all these years?
Yes, I was.
" Hahahahaha, laughed my little one, it is like when we play hide and seek with little kids, and we pretend that we do not know where they are, just to play around and make them feel well! 
From this Sunday morning conversation, my life had changed a lot. 
I know now the definition of love: crazy little colorful butterflies that live inside you and make you feel safe and happy. Love lives inside me and not in other peoples heart.
That is all about Love!
Many years since then, I still smile whenever I hear people asking: I wonder does he/she love me?
All I ask them and I ask now you: do you love her/him? 
Love is a reflection, the reflection of you!
Do not chase butterflies, fill up your heart with love so butterflies will come and stay with you.
So send your colorful cards, share your hugs and feel the Love, the Love that you are!

Happy Valentines!

We Love You
