Healing for Mother’s Day

Mothers’ Day is a day to rejoice motherhood. A time to show our love and appreciation for our mothers.

However this can also be a day filled with sadness and disappointment for those who have lost their mothers to disease or death and for those who have tried to be a mother but not succeeded. And those who have lost a child.

This may be you, or someone you know.

Losing a mother changes your dynamics in life. You lose your archetype in some cases the matriarch of the family. Mother is an energy that encompasses love, compassion, nurture, an understanding of who you are. To lose this you may feel as if someone has chipped away at your emotional foundation.

To lose a child you feel cheated by life. A child is meant to outlive you. to grieve your death. Someone whom you guide and nurture not morn their loss. Leaving you with a silent grief that burns brighter on celebratory days such as Mothers Day.

To be denied the privilege of being a mother can feel as if nature has played some stupid Russian roulette at your expense denying what you felt was your inherent right as a woman.

 So while you sit with the pain or the solace of memories please consider the following.

  • Mustard – for the dark gloomy feelings or when the shadow of grief hovers
  • Buttercup and Larch – to feel and believe in yourself allowing your grief not to define you.
