Healing our Matriarchal Lines - The Mother Wound
Years ago, in a medicine circle, Mother Gaia came and sat with me. She showed me a vision of myself as a little girl witnessing my mother moving from childhood to teenage years to adulthood. In this vision, I could see that my Mother was just another woman trying to live her life as best she knew how. Compassion filled my heart, and I felt weights drop from my body and disappear. I was releasing wounds, stories, and emotions that were no longer claimed as mine to carry.
