A Way to Honor Motherhood

A Way to Honor Motherhood

Mom has been there for us from the very beginning.  She sacrificed her body to carry us for nine months and birth us into this world safely.  She may not be perfect, but who is?!  And, if you were a terror like I was growing up (yeah, you!) then she even had to work overtime to keep you safe and supported while you were figuring out this thing called life. 

Whatever your relationship with your mother is, we can all garner a sense of respect and gratitude for this woman who brought us into existence and made this life possible! 

And, we can cultivate gratitude for the mother within, as motherhood - more than a physical person - is a way of being.  It’s qualities each and everyone of us can strengthen and embody, such as nurturing, compassion, unconditional love, unconditional acceptance, seeing the good in things and people, and giving people the benefit of the doubt.

So let’s bow in gratitude to our mamas, to the women in our lives who have felt like mamas and given us that degree of tender love and support, and to the mama within.  Let’s honor these women and ourselves by celebrating the fullness of what it means to tap into the essence of our womanhood on this very special day!

ROSE; A ritual into motherhood.

Rose is a timeless symbol of womanhood, femininity, and motherhood.  Not only is it one of the most powerful tonics, toners, hydrators, and regenerators for specifically women’s skin, as well as balancing to women’s reproductive organs, rose is an elixir for the emotions.  Through inhaling, wearing, ingesting, and anointing ourselves with rose, we can embody the qualities  of unconditional love and acceptance, nurture even the deepest wounds of grief and heartbreak, and step into our most exalted, motherly selves.  

We can use rose to repair and restore our relationships with our own mothers, connect with our sense of inner motherhood, and honor motherhood in its true essence.
