We do not come into this world alone. We rest inside the body of our mother and then, are literally thrust into the world by an expulsion of creative energy. This movement of energy, this internal contraction carries the seed and soil that nurtures a brand new soul into life! We come catapulting into form, securely attached in a beautiful, sacred bond of union and sustenance. You are not alone. Your mom is right here with you and already has your back. You begin life with the most important relationship of your life, cradled in creation inside the balm and belly of your mother.
Your mother is the first human life force you connect with and together, you establish the basis of sharing, of giving and receiving, of working together to grow and transform. Collectively, you begin to build upon a nourishing and nurturing foundation of love.
It takes an incredible amount of creative power to assert such life into manifestation and to well-preserve it. The emotional link and energetic tapestry is so strong between mother and child, that a physical cord or navel string directly connects your mother’s creative and emotional energy to your personal power and will to live. In fact, the innate creative intelligence to co-create, to bond in pure unconditional love, to take care, raise and grow life is so great inside the womb of the feminine that each month the womb is empty with no life to carry inside, we grieve. That’s why each month we may find ourselves eating everything in sight because we are trying to unconsciously fill a profound void. There can be such a deep ache inside that we cramp and curl up in pain. The loss can be so great within us that we can feel moody, cry uncontrollably, or just want to be held. We’re grieving… We grieve the tremendous loss of the potential in sharing unconditional love.
A special day in May is sanctioned to celebrate mother’s all around the world. One day puts focus, the lime light on the feminine, the woman -- my mother, your mother, thee mother that carries and connects the most powerful force in the universe, what is seen and unseen. One day out of an entire year celebrates an unbreakable bond that outlasts time, space, and reason. One day -- You may fight with your mom, you may say you don’t “need” her anymore or as much, she may have even passed on but in every scenario, that beautiful sacred bond of union and sustenance will remain with you forever and that cord -- that energetic and emotional navel string, will generate here and now and for generations to come, forever.
She’s not just your mother. She is the first teacher, the blessing and sweet gift of pure love. So, love her, love yourself as you initially experienced, and then love this world in the very same way.
God knows we need it-
- Take a moment to remember your mother... Think about all that she's shown and taught you. Think about her strengths and gifts and the same strength's and gifts she passed down to you. Think about the challenges she's shared, how you may have been of service to her and more importantly, how you worked together to build, strengthen, love and secure each other in this world. Write it down and have fun with it!

TIS` THE SEASON OF HEART
December can be quite a magical month and fulfilling time of year. We get a chance to embrace the spirit of holidays and witness the wonder through the eyes of children and adults alike. Tis` the season of heart, when the world steps into a place of family, togetherness, and hope. It’s an end of a year that begins an active path into giving and receiving, rooted in a coming together of values and the essence of home. The season fills the atmosphere with magic; crisp air and snow falling from sky, lights aglow on streets and in homes, long gazes into loved one’s eyes by the crackles of fire and sparks of sweet-hearts. We take care, nestling into hearty foods like soups, stews, and hot chocolate. We bundle up with sweaters, scarves, blankets and loved ones and we find ourselves surround by light, the illumination of our hopes and dreams in the stillness of love within our hearts.
The heart symbolizes life, love and the engagement in partnership. The heart never leads alone... It never beats alone... One pulse follows the other in the direction of union. A sense of union requires partnership. We learn to connect and re-connect through the heart-experience, magnified between a pair of arms that allow us to reach out and touch what we love, while, cradled and comforted between two breasts that safely hold what we feel. We are given an opportunity to feel the magic of life, connection and harmony both, individually and collectively. The season of heart reminds us in order to create a spark of life, we cannot go at it alone. We simply relate and create in a blended continuum of wholeness. The heart does not beat alone... It does not lead alone... One pulse follows the other in complete unification.
This is a time of un-veiling, re-vealing, and an un-folding of self to the inner sweetness of comfort and warmth. It’s a reminder of the mother-child experience, the inner connection and bond of unconditional love. Our very own place to rest soulfully in the wonder and awe, completely disarmed and embraced in the natural state of being. The heart leads us to a clear passage and cleansing, a shedding of old, a point to nurture life and all that we live for. It is a space given in which to surrender, to lay down a clean slate, to be re-born in concept as we celebrate into the new, calm and cradled in the mother energy, inside the season of heart.

It’s time to get out of the “cookie cutter” version of what healing should look like and shift back into our own personal guidance and experience. Sometimes, the path to healing has us feeling off center and it’s cause for questioning but we forget, feeling off center is also for good purpose. The center balances opposing sides and reveals a place of wholeness. When the scale tips toward into the wound, the other side of balance is overlooked. The gift of wholeness is to be open and available to both sides and to integrate them into conscious balance. Your personal path to healing begins inside wholeness not in one side of experience. Let’s look at pain for example. I’ve thought about pain. Pain is real. Pain is relentless. It reveals itself through the body, not just inside it. It wants to be seen. It beckons to be heard. It tugs at you every minute of every day. Pain is restrictive, trapped in the body with no space for joy and we suffer. Pain is suffering, the physical manifestation of held in, held back, shut down and buried emotion. Your physical body can become the storehouse for ignored, unacknowledged and suppressed emotional energy. Pain is an internal broadcast system for the feelings buried inside, screaming to be heard. To be acknowledged. To be cleared. To be loved.
Every healing journey will not look the same. It’s a personal pursuit-
Have you ever sat with the inner voice of your own pain?
I have. Pain is a lot more than just what we name it. It’s a culmination of stuck emotions, blocked feelings, experiences, memories, unconscious belief systems and unhealthy patterns. Because of this, healing can be an evolution of all experience and acknowledging what exists inside you, begins the path that serves as a direction. All of it is important information to construct a very intimate healing experience. Sometimes the tendency is to give up because you don’t like what you see and it can be hard to move through. This is when healing becomes dedication and time becomes discovery. I thought about pain. I’ve had pain. I’ve worked with pain and then it occurred to me. It came into me like a whole being awareness. The other side of pain, is pleasure. Pleasure. What a revelation! In all these years, it never occurred to me that pleasure was a root deficiency to my experience of pain. I was totally invested inside the pain that I missed out on any form of pleasure. I never embraced the joy of life and in being because I never thought to look at the other side of what the experience of pain had to offer.
I thank God for that moment in wholeness. It moved me. Pleasure was now in the game and enjoying my life became priority. When you embrace the other side, you stop brow beating the wound. You cease falling back into rigid, perfectionism disguised as discipline and the “trigger” has a place to go, a space to flourish. My personal healing did not look like the ideal or what I had anticipated. I found rest. I witnessed no more pushing into life or wanting to force forward. I could feel the grip loosen, I allowed some fun and sweeter foods, exercise was no longer a bloodbath but now conscious movement based on my needs for that day. Yes, I gained some weight but I also embraced that weight and loved myself anyway. My healing journey through pain helped me find a better balance within myself, a conscious balance. It helped me find the opening to the possibility of having pleasure move through me and integrate it into my experience. When you make your healing journey personal; it moves you, it changes you, it transforms you into a state of inner-conscious being. Shift away from the “call to action” approach to healing and move deeper into intimate understanding. Let that be the life-giving medicine you take in.
