Of all the relationships we experience in our lives, the most powerful is the one with our mother. She is the “gatekeeper” to all our human experiences. Once we are through the “gate,” our mother is the one to provide a “garden” of safety and comfort as we adjust to our new and challenging human adventure.
Visualization and Questions as you reflect on your own relationship with your mother:
Imagine you can go to the time your conception. Let yourself fully imagine whatever comes to mind. Notice how long you were around your parents before you were actually conceived. What attracted you to your mother? What excited you about being born and having a human body? What did you want to learn or accomplish? What did you promise your mother you would do for her if she agreed (consciously or unconsciously) to bring you through her?
Allow gratitude for all your mother agreed to do for you and for your willingness to give to her.
Happy Mother’s Day!
