The Victim and The Mother

In honor of Mother's Day, which is just around the corner, I wanted to tell you about how powerful of a time this is for us. Mother's Day is no ordinary secular holiday as it would appear. It is much, much more than a kind gesture towards our own mothers, sisters, aunts and wives. What Mother's Day is and the energy it brings to all of us is the power of the archetype of MOTHER....the divine feminine within and without.

As we work with our root chakra we are mastering the archetype of Victim. So don't be alarmed if you've noticed how much blaming you are doing lately and maybe even that this has been a life long pattern. Never fear...mother is here. She is here to bring us out of the Victim and into our own amazing innate ability to nurture and care for ourselves. She shows us with her protective and guiding hand how to take responsibility for ourselves in a loving way.

So yes, honor your mother, and all the women in your life who hold this energy for the planet. But take that a step further and honor the Mother within you. Recognize her powerful, nurturing energy, her compassion, her ability to kiss a boo boo and make it instantly better. She is with you...right at this very moment. You carry this energy within you. She is encoded into your makeup.

The Victim is integrated when the Mother steps into her power. This gives you the foundation to move up your chakra system and become that much more in touch with your Higher Power, while maintaining the ability to ground your destiny out into the physical. She is the key.

Happy Mother's Day!
