For every person who finds Mother’s Day an enjoyable family celebration, there are others who don’t or can’t.
It can be a very triggering or painful day for many people, and for so many reasons.
Our mother is our first teacher
Whether the lessons are wonderful or crappy.
She is the first person we know in this world, and our first home.
She’s also the human representation of the Divine Mother.
And yet, this is often the most challenging relationship of all.
So I offer these words as a prayer for all on this day
Mother’s Day can of course, be a wonderful and joyful family occasion. But what about when it isn’t?
When seeing the endless stream of “Happy Mother’s Day” posts on social media is triggering and painful?
When your mother has passed away, lives interstate or overseas?
When you’re estranged from your mother and/or your family – by your own choice, or circumstances beyond your control.
When buying a Mother’s Day card is a dilemma – searching for one that’s nice enough but doesn’t say “To the world’s best mum”, when that’s never been true in your experience?
When your concept of “mother” doesn’t feel safe or happy? And when you don’t feel loved or accepted for who you are by your own mum.
To you, Salutations from the Goddess. The Divine Mother, creator of all Things. May you receive this Love that Always Is, and has Always Been.
Let’s also send love to the women whose children have passed.
To those who are estranged from their children.
To those who very much wanted children but weren’t able to have them.
For those with children whom they love deeply, and yet still they worry they might be doing something to screw their kids up!
To those mothers who embrace their role fully, and find it hard. To those who find it easy, seamless and natural. To all mothers.
For the mothers of fur children, and those who mother children they did not give birth to.
For every woman who’s yet to make up their mind about whether or not they really do want children.
To those that mother and mid-wife great acts of creativity into this world.
And then also… for every person of any age or gender, with their own unhealed mother wounds.
To all who love their mothers dearly, where irreconcilable differences have caused a deep chasm that can’t easily be solved.
To all those whose mothers exceed their expectations every day, who offer more love they could ever need and then some… and to those who’ve never felt their mother did much mothering.
For all of us who seek love, nourishment, warmth, protection, strength, and nurturing – the qualities of mothering that help us find our feet, our tribe, and our sense of security and confidence to go forth in this world with assurance and vision.
May you feel, know and receive the great love of the Goddess
To all, I want you to know… regardless of where things are at with your own mother and/or mothering, you ALWAYS have access to the beautiful, life-sustaining love of the Divine Mother.
She’s always there for you, because she’s a part of you. A part of all of us.
We all hold the seeds of creation within our Selves, within each atom of our Being. And as such, the Divine Mother is always available for you to call on, receive love from.
Blessings and salutations of deeply nourishing love to you.
May all of your experiences lead you to the truth of the Love That You Are. The Light and Shadow That You Are.
Happy Mother’s Day to all.
