Episode 102 – Sacred Mother
Sacred Mother is an archetype and a planetary energy. She embodies the energies of love, comfort, care and healing, and is the feminine nature of God. On our spiritual paths we are called to awaken to the Sacred Mother in her many forms and integrate her into our being. When we do this important work, we balance ourselves and bring balance to the world. Sacred Mother can be found in our religious traditions, our Mother Earth, in God, our own mother figures and within. Ultimately, when we are able to see her in everything, we will know God in a deeper way. In this episode we share our personal experience of the Sacred Mother and how we can celebrate her.

Sacred Earth Mother
She is the inspiration and energy under all Life
The soil, the water, the sky, the leaves, the wind
Her energy is creative, caring and nurturing, but also tempestuous
Sacred Mother as God
We have inherited a reference to God as ‘Father’ or ‘Him’
“And God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness.” Genesis 1:26
Can we find her in our own mom?
The spiritual path calls us to make peace with our earthly mother and our experience of her — the good, the bad and the ugly
She could also be a grandmother, aunt, teacher or other mother figure

What else do you want to share about Sacred Mother? •How can we celebrate her?
I celebrate the Sacred Mother, giver of Life, who embodies healing, comfort and nurturing. I celebrate Mother Nature in all her glory and actively look for ways to receive her Good and appreciate her life-giving essence. I celebrate mothers everywhere—biological mothers, adoptive mothers, and my mother; women who are trailblazers, caregivers, mentors, and mothers to the masses. I embrace the Divine Feminine as part of me. And say thank you, Divine Mother/Father God!
