Mom in her 30’s
What better day than today, July 4, 2015, to choose to walk as an embodied master? This celebrated day of freedom. Freedom from the old, restrictive roles we have played, especially as women, on this Planet.
What better day to set free our mothers, their mothers and their mothers, on down the line?
My own mother passed away several years ago, on Mother’s Day. Recently I saw a photo of her as she stood in the kitchen, then in her 80’s, and she looked both so sweet, yet so tired. So beaten down by life itself. Yet there was a spark in her even then. That photo evoked so much sadness in me, so many tears, and I knew that those emotions were part of the healing that I am, and that perhaps many of us, are going through. Especially as women, we are in the process of letting go of the limiting roles we have played, not just in this lifetime, but for centuries. We are in the process of setting ourselves free from the roles of nurturer, care taker, of mother, of vixen, of victim. Of the guilt and the shame. Of the obligation and compromise in the name of ‘love.’ An effaceous role to say the least! A role that keeps us tethered to relationships, marriages, jobs, family and friends, and even financial and physical conditions and diseases. That keep us in a place where we can’t feel the full joy that is our birthright! Conditions that really are just mirrors of our own fears of liberating ourselves.
So, dear mother, dear women in my family tree, I honor you, I value you, I see what strength it took for you to be in this physical environment, with these tremendous overlays that define your role for you. Dear mothers and grandmothers, and great grandmothers, I love you, and I miss you at times. I know you are cheering me on and asking me to set you all free, to let you all go. To stop taking on your pain and struggle. I know now that you are all encouraging me to continue walking this road of enlightenment, a road you would have liked to take, but there were just too many obstacles in place. You are all excited by this new road that so many of us are traveling on now. Then if you choose to reincarnate, you will have an easier experience here. You won’t have the burden of feeling obligated, of being the care takers for humanity’s emotional sorrows. So you are all watching with awe and love, and looking forward to seeing the new role models of the enlightened, sovereign women.
You are encouraging me to not diminish my light for anyone.

So on this day I set you all free, and I set myself free. It’s a little bittersweet, because our connection was from that place of compromise and sacrifice primarily. Of sympathy, not empowerment. My mind believes that if I move into my enlightenment, into self-love, I will somehow be betraying you. I know that doesn’t make sense, but part of this self-love thing is to allow my mind to feel what it feels, but not to own it as my truth. As an enlightened woman, my truth is that I am human and I am Divine. That I create my own reality. That I am worthy of a life filled with joy. My truth is that even those parts of me that I am not so proud of, the parts that feel guilty, that feel shame, that feel angry and resentful and unlovable, even those parts get to be loved by me, by my soul. Even if I inherited those parts, they are also worthy of love, and that love is the elixir that transforms my life.
Most women take on the emotions of others, especially of other women, but don’t know how to move beyond that. They think they are doing other women a disservice by being self-loving. Some have tried to emancipate themselves from that role in this and other lifetimes, but found themselves treated less than kindly for it. Some parts of the world still practice this persecution of women who stand out, and they justify it in the name of religion.
But many of us are beginning to take ourselves seriously as embodied masters in the new energy. We are bold enough to release that part of our heritage that defines us as limited beings, and makes us feel less than free to radiate our love and light FOR OURSELVES FIRST. As enlightened women we want to love ourselves in a way we have never felt before, and then share that love with others from a place of feeling fulfilled. Then others can receive the blessing of that rare type of love and can choose to also do that for themselves.
As women we are beginning to feel safe enough to break the generational curse, to know it is safe to love ourselves, to allow the incredible love from spirit, from our soul, into our bodies and our lives, without compromise, without sacrifice.
So dear mothers, dear great grandmothers, dear sisters, I honor all of you. I honor your journeys, I admire your strengths. And now, on this day of independence, I set you all free, as I set myself free.
