Whatever you believe your origin is, you are currently in human form on this earth–meaning you have been birthed.
We each have a mother.
You have an inner child whispering–sometimes screaming–for your attention, approval, appreciation.
How you treat this inner child in thought, word and action is a reflection of your mothering skills.
We are each a mother.
Can you feel the connection? We are mothers. Each one of us.
The disconnect occurs when our lens of love is broken, temporarily set aside or discarded as we choose to vest energy to labels and what we think they “should mean”.
We all agree, the gift of life is precious.
May you look to your mother, wherever she is, regardless of external, and say “Thank you for the gift of life”. May you look to your self, regardless of where you have been and say “Thank you for all that you have birthed”.
Gratitude is the portal to grace.
Grace effortlessly opens doors bolted shut.
Celebrating the Spirit, Meaning and Joy of Motherhood
I received numerous emails about my Mother’s Day letter to my mother. When we share from vulnerable space genuine connection occurs, energetic doors open, infinite possibility becomes real.
Here a few articles written by my peers that celebrate the spirit of the word *mother*, the meaning of mothering, the joy of motherhood.

Complimentary Metta Meditation
My friend and colleague, Jan Lundy is offering a complimentary metta meditation “Mothering Ourselves, Mothering Others” ; “the practice of metta cultivates self-compassion as well as compassion.” Please click the link to register for the meditation.
May I ask, how do you celebrate the gift of life? Is there a ritual, ceremony, consistent practice that you vest in for Mother’s Day? When you share, we learn.
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Unravel. Unfurl. Unfold.
