Mother’s Day is an excellent time to appreciate and connect with the Divine Feminine.
You’ll find this archetype throughout popular culture and in different religions.
The Goddess, the Queen, Wise Woman.
Mother Mary, Durga, Laksmi, Saraswati. Asherah, Astarte, Isis, Athena.
Each of these anthropomorphized archetypes offers an opportunity to connect with one aspect of the Divine Feminine: The Powerful, The Wise, The Strong, The Nurturing, The Compassionate, The Creative, and The Mother.
This Mother’s Day weekend, I encourage you to connect with the wisdom of the nurturer. Here are some ideas:

The amazing thing about self-care is the ripple-effect it has! When you implement these practices and begin to feel better, you find that you are more patient and kind with the people around you.
As you shed the hard layers of stress and soften the brittle fascia of your body, you’re better able to connect with your sacred self. When you shine from that space, you give others permission to live from their truth.
What more powerful gift can you offer the world than your conscious presence?
