Her embodied journey spans the vast inter-connection in the web of life to the depth of emptiness in the void. She expresses as vessel, as midwife, as nurturer and as lover...
In many cultures within the old paradigm, becoming a mother was seen as an obstacle to becoming awakened. Women simply did not have the time and energy needed to meditate for hours every day, as was the norm for the path of enlightenment in many traditions. This reflected a profound separation between human life and the Divine. However, conscious motherhood offers the opportunity to merge both, as this capacity is built into our physiology and soul as a direct means for our soul embodiment here on Earth.
Innate within motherhood is the sustaining nurturance and stillness that we need in order to live into our multidimensional self. There becomes less separation between meditation/prayer and life, because all life becomes an authentic opportunity for being love. Being love is the ultimate catalyst for soul growth. In every experience that arrives at a mother's doorstep she is offered an opportunity to choose love, whether it is self-love, boundaries or nurturing with her child, or giving and receiving love with another.
Many cultures believe a woman is not a full woman until she has biologically and soulfully bloomed through the portal of birth into motherhood. The permanent changes in a woman's body and brain in this process stimulate the magnetic circuitry of her feminine self. This brings her into an innate receptivity and a much larger capacity for giving directly from her body and soul to those she loves. Selfish ness dies, and vast patience is born in this extension of love called motherhood.
From this loving heart-womb space we have the capacity to make whole, to nurture, tend to, and love others. To live in "mother essence" means that we align with and navigate from our womb/heart. The foundation of love with family is fertile ground to unlock some of the deeper recesses of the soul.
"MA" is the most commonly used word in all languages. When we step into Motherhood, we activate the energy of "MA." Mother opens us deeply to the tenderness of all life, the precious vulnerability in ourselves and in others. Paradoxically, Mother also awakens us into a fierce protective instinct.
Motherhood is a pathway into deeper dimensions of the feminine soul. Her embodied journey spans the connection in the web of life to the depth of emptiness in the void. She expresses as vessel, as midwife, as nurturer and as lover. Mother hood is a Call to be birthed into the next octave of our being. It asks us to rise to action in love, intuition and wisdom, here and now. Motherhood is not about leaving all things human behind in our search for God, but rather surrendering to the discovery of God through the embrace of our humanity.
