I titled this episode of Feminine Power Time: "If Mothers Ruled The World: Embracing Our Collective Power to Create a More Sacred World" with the intention for it to be center point we could stand in, together, to look at what is happening in the world - that is so not honoring the sacredness of life, of women, of children and really of humanity.
I offer this as an invitation for us to take a step out of the ideals, politics, ideology and polarizing forces that have kept us stuck in a reality that keeps humans fighting against each other, vs. coming together as human beings, living on a living planet, to focus our power, wisdom and resources on creating a 'sacred world' -- sacred meaning "Devoted to wholeness, with respect, without violence to the self or others."
One is which we stop asserting our power and beliefs over one another.
In wisdom traditions, we are taught not to defend our position or have all the answers.
We are taught that when things seem insane, when we don't like what we see, to step back, to elevate so we can see the whole, to make an inquiry and then sit with it. And we wait for wisdom, which often comes in the form of an inquiry to arise. This inquiry opens the portal to a way to see things differently.
The inquiry I received was "What if Mothers Ruled the World?" Which doesn't only include people who give birth to human children.
Wisdom also teaches us how to speak from both fierceness and through grace. To create a field that connects and opens. Which was my intention.
Tune in. Bring an open mind and open heart. Take in what resonates. Leave what doesn't. Most of all, I am inviting us to open up our imaginations. To see through our wise eyes. To see the reality playing on the world stage. To see and speak what could be.
See you there,
In devotion to love,
Hello Dear One ... Every May I love to re-listen to and re-share this episode on MOTHER LOVE which I recorded in 2017, and the wisdom still stands... and the message still so needed for us all to hear, contemplate and put into practical action. I've updated the start and end with a special reading and practice this year.
What is Mother Love? Mother Love is so much more than we think it is.) So many of us are feeling stretched - being called to make changes, expansions, trust. In times like you need more "mother love" - it's so powerful! MOTHER LOVE does not just come from your birth mother. And since most of us aren't taught what that is or how to source it, I am replaying this Feminine Power Time. If you've never heard it, tune in. If you have, re-listen this is medicine and a message that will bring clarity, confidence and courage to you at this time....
"THERE IS A GREAT MOTHER LOVE AVAILABLE THAT CAN ACT AS THE SAFE AND SOFT HARBOR YOU NEED TO STAND STRONG + FEEL SUPPORTED. IT WILL HOLD YOU, SOOTHE YOU, AND GIVE YOU UNSTOPPABLE COURAGE."
When you read the words ‘mother love’ you likely go right to thinking about the mother who gave birth to you or the mother who raised you. And while that mother definitely has a role to play in our lives, she cannot be our only source of “mother love.”
Mother love is... a specific kind of love that every human being needs – we don’t outgrow the need for it, although we sadly forget how much we do need it.
Mother love is… the deep, all-embracing, all-accepting, nourishing, nurturing, warm, safe, supportive love that soothes the places inside our hearts that feel scared and lonely.
Mother love is… the strong love that we can fall into when we are stressed, stretched, uncertain, and feeling like we just can’t handle what’s happening in our life.
Sourcing Mother Love is not something most of us were taught how to do. In this Feminine Power Time with Christine Arylo: Mother Love: The Feminine Love That Will Hold You Through Transition:
