You’re All A Bunch of Mothers!

I am not much of a holiday person; the only holidays I truly love are Halloween and New Year’s Eve.  But I sincerely hope that you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day.  It was a beautiful day here in Los Angeles and my mother seemed to have a nice day.  I had a nice day as well and heard from my two beautiful young men in the morning, which was wonderful.  The day started with listening to Agape spiritual services online, which set the tone for a very reflective and conscious day.

Reverend Michael said many things that were amazing, but I especially liked that he acknowledged the fact that Mother’s Day can be tough for many people.  Not everyone has an Ozzy and Harriet or Cosby Show kind of family; Michael reminded those of us in that situation that we were born into this world with lessons we came to learn.  Our families are part of the package that has helped us become who we are today.

When we become aware of the areas of our lives that have fallen short of our ideals, we have the perfect opportunity to remake those areas in a more pleasing way.  For instance, if we were not taught about money as a child, and that lack of knowledge caused us to make many mistakes, perfect!  We have the opportunity now to seek out the information we didn’t get as children.  If we grew up feeling alienated and unloved, great!  Now we have the opportunity to share with others the love that we wish we had received ourselves.

Too many times we wait around looking to receive things from others when the universe is looking at us, wondering what exactly we’re waiting for.  We are the agents of change.  We have all been blessed with painful challenges, and have come through them with wisdom and compassion to share.  We all have gifts and have overcome things that, if we would only be willing to share, could help someone else and be a blessing to the next generation.

In other words, whether or not you have children, you can be a mother to someone.  Even if you are a man, you have gifts of nurturing, patience, and compassion that can lift someone up.  There is someone out there who needs you to be the Light you were meant to be.

So Happy Mother’s Day to all you “Mothers”!  May we all carry the Divine Mother vibration into the next week and seek out people to love, nurture, and care for.  Peace and blessings… now go follow your bliss…

  1. You’ve done it again, Raven. You have such a wonderful way of putting things into perspective. My mother died 20 years ago but I still take the time to wish her a Happy Mother’s day each year. We had a very troubled relationship when she was still here on this earth plane but since she has gone we have made peace with each other. It gets me thinking how it is never too late too repair a broken relationship. I am one who firmly believes that the dead can see and hear us and my mom has given me many signs to prove that to me. So I believe that when I talk to her she hears me and many times she has spoken to me through dreams. This is how we have repaired our relationship over the past 20 years. She has helped me to be a better mother and grandmother simply by showing me what NOT to do. Striving to be as unlike my mother as possible has made me a much better mother than she was. And how do I know that I am that? Because my children and grandchildren tell me so. And also she has told me so. We always learn by our parents example, just sometimes we need to reverse it to make it work. I’ve said all that to say this; Mother’s Day shouldn’t only be a day to honor our mothers but also a day when we mothers take the time to contemplate on how we are doing our job of mothering. There is always room for improvement as long as we are still alive. Happy Mother’s Day, Raven. I hope your sons know how lucky they are.

    • Carrie! What a wonderful statement. Thank you so much for sharing your story. (I apologize for taking so long to respond to this. For some reason I wasn’t notified there was a response). In any case, I hope your children realize how lucky they are as well. Thanks so much for reading and posting!!! Have a wonderful weekend.
