The Meaning of Mothers Day
With Mothers Day around the corner, it is a time to celebrate all of those wonderful attributes that the archetype of Mother represents! Creator, giver of life, unconditional love, nurturer, protector, devoted, caring, and supportive are all words that represent motherhood.
Not all of us have had the opportunity to birth and raise a child but that doesn’t mean that we haven’t tapped into the aspects of Mother. We are all creators and have given birth to many things in our lives. And we will continue to do so. This also calls for celebration!
For example, I feel like I have 6 toddlers with my Chiki Buttah organic beauty product line. It keeps me going in so many directions and I love the opportunity to “raise” my babies and “grow” my business!
There are also those that may have/had an estranged relationship with a mother. This is another aspect that I can relate to as I did not grow up with my mother and never really had a solid relationship with her. As I have evolved over the years, I have learned to release the emotions around the past and bring myself to a state of total acceptance and gratitude. I can now celebrate Mother’s day in gratitude for my mother gifting me with this life!
And to all of you Mamas out there that did give birth and have raised, praised, nurtured, protected and given bottomless support – this truly is a special day to share with your loved ones. You are the creators and givers of life and you should revel in your achievements!
We all have the power to tap into the aspect of Mother for support when we need it. Self care, loving yourself unconditionally, making the best choices for your health and well being, these are all mothering and nurturing qualities.
Lets make this Mother’s Day special and celebrate life in all of its many forms. Let’s project gratitude and love for all Mothers that have passed, all that are present and all that will be.
