@jeanetteaw 🙆🏻‍♀️🙆🏻‍♀️🙆🏻‍♀️ Thank you babe!

One of the hardest three words for me to say is ‘I love you’ 
Recently something happened that put my nervous system into a state of shock, I had always pride myself as someone who is calm under the most stressful circumstances, that was a truly humbling and revealing moment.
Sometimes we just need to get knocked over in order to give up our resistance and allow our hearts to open.
What came as a nice surprise was I was able to tell myself in the mirror that l love you. Self love is about not giving ourselves a hard time when we fail but as the kind nurturing presence for ourselves. A remothering process to be loving to all that is unresolved in our hearts.

Remembering those who had not been in the space of kindness and nurturance... #Repost @tokopa with @get_repost

To the multitudes of souls out there for whom this day is an excruciating reminder of what you yearn for but have never known, these words are for you.
.
As you know too well, the Good Mother that is emblemized on this day, the one who is culturally exalted for her nurturing, selfless kindness, is only one face of the Mother archetype.
.
If you grew up feeling unseen, invalidated, or with instability, violence or chaos in the home, you will have seen some of her other faces.
.
Because our mothers are our first imprint of the world, that relationship becomes the blueprint for how we relate to life at large. If you experienced a scarcity of love and withholding of affection, the whole world can feel like place you aren’t worthy of belonging.
.
Revitalisation of this vast and central wound is slow. But the first step to healing is the refusal to keep minimalising the impact that emotional neglect has created. Only then can you begin to grieve and, with your moistening tears, plant anew in that abandoned soil.
.
Remothering is an ongoing practice, (tremendously helped by a mentor), of learning to care for your body’s needs, validating and expressing your feelings, speaking healthy boundaries, supporting your life choices, and most of all – growing loving towards all that is unsolved in your heart.
.
To your remothered self I offer this future blessing:
.
Through trial and fire, against the odds, you have grown to trust that the world can be a safe place and you have every right to walk here. You have made parents of your instincts, intuition and dreaming; you have allowed love into where it had never before been received; you have grown life where once it was barren. With just a few found and trustworthy seeds, you have nurtured the greatest harvest there is in this, your humble life of belonging.
.
Love,
Toko-pa

“Unless we recognize the barriers that mothers face, finding ways as a village to give them the support they need, the hidden shame of a woman’s felt inadequacy to the “Good Mother” image eventually turns upon her, as unacknowledged shadows do, and begins to express itself destructively both internally and towards those who are in her path. The children of those mothers also suffer in our culture’s disavowal of mothering’s shadow side. It may cause them to question the validity of their experience with her darkness, creating the conditions to repeat the cycle of the Death Mother.”
