I don’t know where you are in your life but I invite you to activate powerful love within you. What is important is that you begin to understand the power of love and how healing it can be in any circumstance. Trust love to create something new out of your pain; trust love enough to never give up; and trust love enough to hold in your heart the healing of the past.
Let us take some time and be inspired by the incredible and awesome nature of the “mother spirit”. Whether it is in the animal kingdom or the family of human beings, most mothers are fierce protectors of their young. They intuitively know when something is happening with their child. I was always amazed that my mother tuned right into me and noticed something was up. That was not always good news for me, but it most certainly reminded me that we were connected in an extraordinary way. During one of my talks I shared that there are three things that “mother love” teaches us.
- Out of pain comes creation – There are countless stories of mothers who have lost their children and turned that loss into a noble and powerful mission on the planet. MADD – Mother’s Against Drunk Driving is a perfect example. The Irving, Texas–based organization was founded in 1980 by Candice Lightner after her 13-year-old daughter was killed by a drunk driver.
- Never take no for an answer – I have seen mother’s that have not found the ability to stand up for themselves and then become powerful voices for their children. They will not “stand down” until they see that justice prevails for their child.
- Love Holds the high watch – I have counseled many people who are separated from their children. Most of them are apart because of misunderstandings and judgments. I am amazed at how many of these people continue to hold the vision that they will come back together. Oftentimes, I am asked to support them in doing their own healing so that space can be created for reconciliation.
Please affirm with me: I activate within me a deep and abiding love that transcends all wounds, fears, doubts and unhealed relationships.
