Unanswered Dreams of Our Mothers
I hope that you enjoyed your Mother’s Day and that you will continue to celebrate in the feminine, spiritual energy with me that is the mother. Yemonja is the ability that all living things have to birth new ideas, to nurture all living things and the potential for giving life. Both men and women have the ability of the mother, since we all have her essence.
Let’s dedicate this day to the unanswered dreams of our mothers.
Let’s imagine our mothers as little girls playing house with their dolls and sometimes even tea sets.
Let’s imagine them without their innocence lost.
Let’s imagine them as young women, afraid and insecure. Let’s imagine them overcoming these insecurities and blossoming into beautiful women; women who had dreams, plans and hopes for a glorious life. Let’s envision them achieving most of their hopes and dreams. Many of them married and fulfilled their wishes. Some became mothers without marriage. Some never conceived and others conceived and lost. Some chose never to marry or conceive.
Let’s imagine what it must have been for them at your age and how they would handle what you are challenged and blessed with today.
Let’s visualize our mothers walking beside, under, over and all around us; reminding us of their connection and essence in us; and reminding us that we too have the ability and right to have dreams.
The dreams that have been unanswered for us-still have the essence for life. We can all choose to use the essence of life that was given to us by our mothers to create and manifest a reality.
Today let’s light a candle on this Moon’s Day, Yemonja Day or Monday in honor the essence of our life…Our Mothers. (Meaningful Monday, 2010)
