Love is all we need: The narrow isthumus of love and fear.

You cannot say you truly love your child and fear for them. This is a hard one I know.  In my early years of parenting I was all about their protection.  That was my job surely? I was the mother who got all riled up if there was any morsel of injustice or potential danger in the room.  I was the mother who was compelled to fight my corner whether it was in the classroom with the teacher, in the doctors office, with the media, or even with my spouse.  I was passionate. I was I thought, brimming with full bodied love for my precious ones. And then one day I had an epiphany.  It was a little biblical; a bolt of […]

Easy always does it. Calling all Soul Fire to the birthing suite.

I always get what I need when I stop and listen to my Inner Being. She’s wise. She’s kind and She’s great at getting what really needs to be done, done. I was pushing through something today that was beginning to feel the opposite of easy. Even my computer was trying to communicate with me: it kept crashing, not saving my work.

Secret Mum’s Business. The true origins of Mother’s Day and beyond.

A few days have passed since the official Mother’s Day but every day has been my day since I had my first son 24 years ago.  Not a moment goes past where I don’t at some point think of what it means to be a mother. I’m writing my next contribution to Parenting For New Reality: Multidimensional Motherhood.  It’s going to take a while!  I have so much to say, so much to explore and investigate both personally and in terms of societies view of motherhood that I have probably bitten off more than I can chew but I will.. like any brave mother, forge onward knowing that no effort is pointless, no time ever wasted nurturing something or someone you feel […]

What is love?

WHAT IS LOVE? What is Love? I can tell you what it is not. Love is not tainted by duty Nor by obligation or even loyalty. Guilt plays no part in Loves’ true essence, In the clear waters of its’ pure vibration. Love does not speak in tones of “I know what is best for you” It doesn’t thrive or expand in an atmosphere of control Or grow in to hearty health by the imposition of boundaries, Do’s or don’ts, should’s or shouldn’ts. Rights or wrongs. Love shrivels and withers if there is expectation involved. It becomes a distant many times removed cousin When presented on a platter decorated with fear Or garnished with worry or self gratifying concern. Love is only […]
