Gift of The Mother

From birth we are shaped by the women that surround us, by our mothers, midwives, aunts, grandmothers, family friends, and sisters. On the path we are blessed to find support and guidance. Especially at this time of real uncertainty it is important that we come into our own. It is in these moments in the midst of the raw and the unforgiving, that we find our calling, our purpose and our voice. The path that strengthens the feminine spirit is what unites us as women. We can choose how to respond to what life hands us and how to create positive change.

Now, at this time, we tap the boundless source of all becoming. It is not only a power that nourishes and cares, but it is a source that has the wisdom to effect change in our families, our communities and the world at large.

On this Mother’s Day, may we reclaim our walk on this path that leads to a feeling of belonging. By caring for our bodies, hearts and mind we awaken to a force within us that is beautiful and kind. Take this time to love, to express hope and to acknowledge the trials you have endured and the triumphs you are yet to realize. At this time, celebrate all that you have become.

May all of us remember and honor the mother as the wisdom keeper whose feminine power blesses all beings like a generous rain.

Wishing all mothers, daughters and sisters, deep blessings on this day.

Don’t Hold Your Breath

You don’t have to do yoga to know that you should not “hold your breath”. Yet in order to make it through a topsy turvy time it is common for people to do just this. When we say “holding your breath” we do not simply mean not inhaling. Of course, people rarely “hold their breath” for without breath there is no life and by way of a long held breath, you might end up passed out on the carpet! It is more common for people to constrict their blood vessels, clench their nerves or tighten their sphincters in order to get by.
