When I think of the word, "Mother," many things come into my mind.  My own sweet mother, of course, who to me, will always be the perfect embodiment of motherhood.  I think, too, of myself, for I am the mother of three, the step-mother of three more, and a grandmother to two little ones now. 

I think of mothers all over the world.  There is probably no image so sweet to anyone anywhere than the image of their mother's face.  Generally speaking, of course, because some people aren't lucky enough to be with their mother, or perhaps their mother hasn't been much of a mother to them.

What does it mean, "to be a mother?"  Isn't having children enough?  Well, yes, and we all do the best that we can at the time, I am sure.  But to "BE" a mother, to me, goes back to the thought of embodying a certain idea.  What is it that a true mother is?

Nurturing, caring, teaching, feeding, loving, comforting, encouraging, supporting...these are words that come to mind when thinking of what the word, "mother" means.  Aren't these all things anybody can do, regardless of whether or not they gave birth?

We all have a mother inside of us.  It's part of who we actually are.  The Mother is the Eternal Mother...the feminine aspects of God...the yin to the yang, so to speak. 

So, God is nurturing.  I am nurturing.  I am created in the image and likeness of God.  God is Love, so naturally God is caring and loving, and so are we.  It is natural for us to teach, feed, encourage, support, etc., because that is who we naturally are.  We are created in the image of Love. 

When we find that we are not receiving these things in our life, look at whether or not we are in fact giving them, for it is in giving that we receive.  We may think we are too weak to give.  There is always strength in giving love, so start there.  Sometimes a good place to start is by giving love to yourself.  You have a little child inside of you who needs a mother's kind love.  That's the way to approach loving yourself.  Then you can extend that love outward to others, as well.

This does not mean to give in to your every whim by giving yourself a misguided love!  A mother's love is wise.  Give this type of love to yourself.  A mother looks out for the best of her children.  Look out for your best interests, not simply instant gratification and what feels good in the moment, but rather what will help to carry you through.

Allow your inner Mother to teach you what's right from what's wrong.  Find the place of peace inside of yourself where you can feel safe in your "mother's" arms, and let her teach you, guide you, and comfort you.  Learn to know the sound of her voice.  Rest in the comfort of absolute love.  There is Peace in your Mother's arms.  There is Strength.  There is Wisdom and Truth.  Your Mother would never lie or hurt you in any way.  Learn to trust this voice in yourself.
Let your inner Mother decide how you should eat.  Not necessarily the same as your earthly mother, although I am sure that she tried, but rather look to what's provided in nature to eat, for the Spirit of Mother is certainly there!  We know her as Mother Earth!  Mother Earth gave us LIFE.  We are created in her image, as well as the spiritual attributes we recognize as God.  Our chemical make up...our physical made up of the elements of Earth, such as water, minerals, etc.  We are in complete harmony with the environments, as much so as a baby is at home in its mother's womb.

So on Mother's Day, yes, think of your own mother with love and express this love in some meaningful way.  And if you are fortunate to have your own children, then give thanks for the opportunity to experience the bliss of being a mother.  It is an honor, indeed!  But mostly think of your own Mother inside you...the Mother who guides you and comforts you and loves you whenever you turn within.  Express these motherly qualities in your own life, towards yourself and outward to heal the whole world!  There's nothing quite as healing as a mother's love!  Give that gift to the world.  (You KNOW your Mother would tell you to play nice and be kind!!)

Think, too, of Mother Earth, for this is also a part of who you are.  You are not only your body, but you do have a body.  Turn to the Mother to feed and be in harmony with your natural surroundings for physical health. Your Mother will not let you down!  It is Her nature to LOVE!

Happy Mother's Day to all...
