To Nurture 💗
Working with the Empress energy right now. In particular how this relates to me in my mothering journey. This is going to be my rambly thoughts as of now. I'd love to hear yours. I almost didn't post this, and to be honest feel vulnerable in doing so. But, here we go!
I'm going to be real honest and say in the depths of mothering I have not felt this Empress energy easily. Actually I have longed for it and I have felt inadequate. Separate. Not good enough. Outside of it.
<Untruths and half truths>
I've felt great duality as I've traveled through motherhood. Intense unconditional love like I've never experienced. So raw and real it aches. On the other side I've felt fear of loosing myself. In moments I may even have. Drowning in the obligation of giving of myself.
When did I learn that I had to choose? That motherhood and powerful self freedom could not coexist? On some subconscious level I absorbed the untruth that motherhood was a sacrifice to freedom. That this sacrifice is this nurturing love.
Yes we make sacrifices as parents. Of course.
But I'm realizing I've been missing out on a beautiful POWERFUL truth.
That true unconditional love is steeping into my power as a multifaceted woman creator and mothering FROM this place of inner power, rather than OUTSIDE of it.
To nurture in my power.
To love unconditionally in my power.
To mother in my power.
The Divine Feminine is powerful because it encompasses our power to create and nurture within its unlimited and overflowing source of loving creative intuitive energy.
We don't have to choose, build walls and separate our feminine power.
We can be all and one.
We can coexist within passionate creation, self exploration and passionate mothering.
We don't have to choose, build walls or separate OURSELVES.
For isn't this our power, to unite in unconditional love all the aspects and facets of our being inside and outside of us?
