Divine Mother

    Motherhood in America is often associated with traditional American values. Just go to your local card shop and pick up a card from the rack. Chances are you will need a warm shower and pouf afterward to wash off the sugary glaze. Motherhood truly is a sacred calling and holy assignment. It is no small feat to nurture a child into their Divine Wholeness. However, I have worked with many clients who felt gipped in the mother department. Their mother was abusive, inattentive, self-centered, addicted, or invested in an image over the needs of their children. These kids are left with a different experience of Mother’s Day, and even more, a gaping hole in their heart that was never filled. What does one do then, spiritually, when their emotional/physical needs weren’t met? My answer is to open up to the Grace and Love of the Divine Mother. The Divine Mother is front and center in the Hindu faith and included in a secondary, yet substantial role, as Mother Mary...

Becoming the Mother and Daughter Consciousness

I remember the first time I interpreted the Prodigal Son story from the perspective of The Father consciousness instead of, or in addition to, The Son consciousness. The message is The Father is one of Unconditional Love; and celebration of the son regardless of his wayward nature.

And, the spiritual maturity came for me when I was willing to be a place for the Father/Parent consciousness to be revealed within me that I may be the place of the Loving and the loved; the giving forth and the receiving; the Mother and the daughter. Michael Berg in his book The Way, based upon teachings of the Kabbalah, lays out creation in three steps as I interpreted it: 1. God gives forth; 2. We receive the givingness of God; and 3.

Mother’s Day as a Day of Peace

Julia Ward Howe, magazine author and writer of The Battle Hymn of the Republic, was sick and tired of the Civil War’s devastation to families, the community, and the world.  In 1870 she wrote a proclamation calling mothers to come together with a voice of peace.  Below is her letter: Arise, then, women of this day! Arise all women who have hearts, Whether your baptism be that of water or of tears Say firmly:   “We will not have great questions decided by irrelevant agencies, Our husbands shall not come to us reeking of carnage, For caresses and applause. Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn All that we have been able to teach them of  charity, mercy and patience.   We women of one country Will be too tender of those of another country To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs.”    From the bosom of the devastated earth a voice goes up with  Our own. It says, “Disarm, Disarm!” The sword...
