The honoring of the Mother energy within and around you may have been more present than in days past. I know that for myself, spending time with my brother’s family and new baby, I was able to really support this Mother energy up close and personal. It was not only the offering of sleep I gave with the late night feedings I chose to do or corralling the toddler who sometimes feels soft and cuddly and other times raging with fire. It was being able to see the process of new life begin to form together which, in this way, has been lost to me for some sixteen years as my oldest prepares to graduate from High School. Maybe lost isn’t quite the word for it, forgotten might resonate better for some of you, however either way, I am seeing the necessity of the Mother, her process of bringing in life, of caring and nurturing life, of fiercely guarding and protecting life and also her surrender to life. Her ability to support so many aspects of energy is incredible and the way she must surrender to asking for support of her own is an act of wisdom, bravery and deep surrender. As many of you know this Mother energy is present all around us, not only in the bounded human sense of a woman having a baby, but in every sense of life. Mother Earth for example is a common reference used, seen very recently with the Water Protectors who stood their ground in protection of our Mother and the water of life. This energy is all around us and must always be remembered.
Somewhere within this idea of being connected to Mother, it can get tricky with your personal experience of your Mother or being a Mother. This is the human within working to stay grounded and be present with all that is here and of this earth. The true gift of this humanness, is you also are led to the experience of the energy, emotion, and surrender of being with a greater spiritual awareness of this energy and how it will support you. Every one of you experience some form of this human, Mother energy as it is how you arrived on this earth and into being. Having children doesn’t make you a mother and this is the bigger picture you may have tapped into last week. There are unlimited ways of connection to this energy and allowing it to move around you and through you. This mothering energetic flow is the place where you are nurtured or can nurture others; it is the place where you collapse and are held tightly until you can stand again or where you hold something or someone until they can stand again; it is the place at the beginning of the journey where it feels uncertain because of the unknown and yet there is a deep surrender to knowing it will be ok.
Be clear that this Mother energy does not discount the Father energies, it simply is bringing into your awareness the ways in which the Mother speaks to you. The Father energy carries a different frequency of vibration and is very strong and supportive, not unlike the Mother. Like the masculine and feminine, you all carry these Mother/Father energies within and similar to the masculine/feminine, Mother/Father doesn’t not isolate you to Mother=woman or Father=man. Part of the beauty of them being different is that much like the feminine energy, the Mother has a sense of intuitive wisdom and healing that is offered in the vulnerability of moving into the unknown. It’s an energy that will guide you forward, supportive and in many senses protecting you in every way that is necessary to ensure your success at getting where you need to be. There is also a fierceness that awakens within the realm of Mother which allows you to call in the support you will need when things become a challenge or when too much starts to happen at once. This support will come in all forms of body, mind, and spirit and will hold you up when it feels as if you are falling.
The beauty in remembering is that the vibration of wisdom is already there within you and you will begin to see it or feel it almost immediately. Set your mind aside when possible so that the truth of being held is present and clear. Root your feet in the earth and also elongate your spirit into the starts; there is no reason you cannot be of all worlds.
Blessings and Much Love!
