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!
