December 18th Weekly Reading – Healing the Mother Wound
Greetings, dear souls! Can you believe how swiftly these past months have whizzed by, like shooting stars in the cosmic expanse? The holiday season is upon us, and it seems as though time itself is dancing at lightning speed. Amid this whirlwind, take a moment to acknowledge the journey you’re currently on and the magic that has been unfolding along the way. We are always worrying so for now let’s just stay in a state of gratitude and appreciation for all the good we have going on. Even the fact that you’re breathing reading this email.
As we reflect on the fleeting nature of time, consider the profound shifts and transformations that have marked our path. Each passing month has been a stepping stone, propelling you forward on your unique journey of growth and self-discovery. The cosmic dance of time invites you to explore the depth of your experiences, cherishing the lessons learned and embracing the wisdom gained.
👩👧👦Becoming the Mother You Never Had 🌺
For some, the call is to embody the nurturing presence that the inner child within you never experienced. You are the changemakers within the family system, destined to break the chains of generational trauma and replace them with a legacy of love. Embrace the role of a compassionate guide, offering solace and healing to the younger version of yourself.
As you embark on the journey of healing generational wounds, recognize the transformative power of self-love and self-compassion. The mother within you has the capacity to soothe the wounds of the past, creating a nurturing space for growth and transformation. Embrace the responsibility of becoming the nurturer you need/needed, fostering a legacy of love that transcends time and leaves an indelible mark on the familial tapestry.
🩸Blood is Not Always Thicker Than Water🩸
Some individuals, regardless of their age, may exhibit a level of immaturity that prevents them from transcending past traumatic experiences in their lives. Their perspective is often clouded, and they struggle to see beyond the points where they were last deeply affected. Their communication lacks a nuanced understanding, and they remain confined to a singular viewpoint. Driven by ego, these individuals seek validation, crafting stories even if they are untrue, all in the pursuit of garnering attention. It’s a stark reality that narcissistic traits can manifest in seemingly attractive packages.
Some people have it twisted and use the saying ” Blood is thicker than water”. This sentiment is encapsulated in the complete quote: “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb.” This full saying underscores the profound idea that the connections we actively form and choose to maintain (the “blood of the covenant”) hold greater significance than the relationships we are born into (the “water of the womb”). It emphasizes the importance of chosen bonds, highlighting that relationships we cultivate intentionally often carry more weight and depth than those determined by familial ties alone.
While familial ties hold significance, true depth emerges when we recognize that the friends we deliberately choose in our lives can become the family we create. In this nuanced understanding, the bonds forged through choice and shared experiences often carry more weight than mere blood connections. Don’t let anyone try to use this against you.
🚫 Boundaries with Family🛡️
An essential message echoes through the cosmic winds: familial bonds do not grant permission for disrespect, lies, manipulation, or chaos to infiltrate your life. Regardless of the relation—be it a mother, sister, aunt, uncle, etc—stand firm in setting boundaries. Do not succumb to gaslighting or allow others to weave false narratives that disrupt your peace. Safeguard your sanity, preserve your energy, and create a protective space for your well-being.
As you navigate the intricate dynamics of family relationships, recognize the importance of establishing boundaries rooted in self-respect and self-love. The holiday season can bring both joy and potential challenges, making it crucial to maintain a balance that nurtures your well-being. Remember that setting boundaries is an act of self-care—a way to honor your authentic self and cultivate harmonious connections that uplift rather than drain.
🌈 Believe in Magic🎈
In the midst of the holiday fervor, believe in magic. Open your eyes wide and recognize that enchantment is woven into the fabric of your existence. Tap into the wellspring of your inner child, set them free, and reassure them of love and safety. You are an integral part of the Universe, connected to the magical essence that permeates us all. Remember, you are the magic, and wherever you go, magic follows.
Rediscover the world through the lens of a child’s wonder—a perspective unburdened by skepticism and steeped in curiosity. Allow the magic to unfold in the simplest of moments, whether it’s the twinkle of holiday lights, the scent of freshly baked cookies, or the joyous laughter of loved ones. Embrace the childlike awe that resides within, cultivating a sense of wonder that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.
🌹 Acknowledging Anniversaries🎂
For some, a special anniversary is on the horizon. Take the time to acknowledge and honor this milestone, for it presents an opportune moment to open up, reflect, and celebrate the journey that brought you here. Embrace the emotions that accompany this anniversary, allowing yourself the space to grow through the experience.
An anniversary is a poignant marker in time, inviting introspection and gratitude for the chapters written and the chapters yet to unfold. Whether it’s a personal milestone, a relationship anniversary, or a symbolic event, take a moment to commemorate the significance of this juncture. Through reflection, you may discover newfound insights and a deeper appreciation for the intricate threads that compose your life’s narrative.
🎉Letting Your Hair Down in the Dance of Life 💃🕺
Amidst the hustle and bustle, there’s a gentle call for celebration. It’s time to let your hair down, dance with life, and play in the rhythm of joy. The Universe invites you to revel in the present moment, to shed the weight of life’s complexities, and to immerse yourself in the simple delight of being. Say yes to the party invitation, share a meal with a friend, send that email, write that letter, make that call, or send that text. Do not let the moment pass you by!
In all of existence, celebration becomes a vibrant thread, weaving moments of joy, laughter, and connection. It’s a chance to acknowledge your resilience, express gratitude for the blessings received, and share the warmth of your heart with those you welcome around you. In the dance of life, celebrate the magic of your existence, recognizing that each step is a testament to your journey’s brilliance.
Mercury Retrograde started 5 days ago and will carry us in to a close for 2023. This is a cosmic phenomenon that occurs several times a year, and invites us to reflect and reassess various aspects of our lives. As the planet Mercury appears to move backward in its orbit, communication, technology, and travel may encounter disruptions.
During this period, misunderstandings may arise, plans might go awry, and technological glitches may be more prevalent. However, Mercury Retrograde is not solely a harbinger of chaos; it’s an opportune time for introspection. Go inward into unresolved issues, revisit past decisions, and reevaluate your communication style. While external activities may face delays, the internal journey offers a chance for personal growth and clarity. Embrace this cosmic rhythm, use the retrograde wisely, and let it guide you toward greater self-awareness and alignment.
As the holiday season unfolds its magic, I’d like to extend heartfelt wishes for the Merriest Christmas and the Happiest of Holidays. May this season be adorned with love, laughter, and moments of pure enchantment. Stay safe, embrace the joy of celebration, and bask in the warmth of love and protection.
In Cosmic Celebration, Love & Crystals,
