Mother Earth is here to support you. Happy Mother's Day to all from OmCulture

"Where flowers bloom, so does hope." -Lady Bird Johnson

The roses are blooming and the sun is shining in Seattle this weekend. I hope you’ll nourish yourself with a yoga practice this morning. It’s a wonderful day to ‘contemplate your navel’ and send some gratitude to your mother here on earth or up in heaven. Many of us are far away from our families, unable to visit, while some of us are spending more time in close quarters with our immediate families than ever before. Mothers with children still at home have been asked to take on new challenges including entertaining and educating their little ones 24/7 during this stay at home order. Some are mothering their young children while also caring for their elderly mothers. Some are caring for mothers who no longer recognize them as their children in the cloud of dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Some are unable to deeply connect with their mothers and others have never met their biological mothers. There are also mothers grieving the loss of their children, children grieving the loss of their mothers and women grieving their inability to bear children of their own. It is a heavy time and also a beautiful time when we can explore the limitless nature of unconditional love and compassion for ourselves and for others. Regardless of our individual circumstances, we all need to be mothered. Let’s continue to take tender care of each other and also acknowledge that to do this, we must first take care of ourselves. There’s a golden rule that we are reminded of every time we board an aircraft. In case of emergency, put your own oxygen mask on first before you help others. Putting your own needs first will leave you more well equipped to care for those around you. I’d like to give all of the mothers out there permission to put themselves first today and to feel no guilt or shame if their idea of a perfect mother’s day activity is taking a break away from their family to find nourishment in time spent alone or with a friend. It’s not the easiest time for mothers to escape for a full day of pampering, but the warm weather provides an opportunity to take a break outside and soak up the maternal energy and support of the earth below. Whether you are a mother or not, I invite you to spend some nourishing time with your bare feet on the earth or your toes in the water where you can practice receiving from the greatest mother of all. Mother Earth is here to support us and to give us hope through this challenging time. I hope you’ll stop to smell the roses and lilacs and to honor all of the beauty and light that surrounds us. I honor the light and beauty that exists within each of you that also exists within me. Happy Mother's Day. with love and care, Sarah
