Self-Care and the Goddess
Women are so very talented. We can juggle multiple projects and simultaneously tend to the needs of many. It’s easy for us to fall out of balance, and when we do, we can end up feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. We lose connection with our inner compass and work harder versus smarter, feeding the cycle of imbalance.
To nurture balance in our lives, we can harness the energy of the Mother Goddess to build the cornerstone of balance, self-care. Connecting with this archetype does not mean one has to be a physical mother. Her gifts are offered to everyone. Honoring your inner Mother Goddess is about nurturing and tending to your needs, goals and feeding the hungers of your soul with the energy you need to be well and thrive.
To embody the tender loving care of your inner Mother energies, commit to a nourishing daily practice to care for your heart and soul before you serve others. Each morning, refrain from picking up your phone to check messages or to read the news. Instead, choose to go inside to connect with your own inner wisdom to guide your daily activities and attitudes. Nourish yourself with a cup of tea, walk outside, read, or write. Do whatever it is that helps you to slow down, connect with yourself and feed the deepest desires of your soul. Start small, with an amount of time that works for you.
As you consistently invest in this maternal, loving time to care for yourself, you will regain and maintain your balance. Your daily energy will increase, your health will improve, and you will make wiser decisions about how you manage your time and energy. Open your heart to yourself and receive the nurturing care of your inner Mother.
