The Labor Pains of Our Mothering

The Labor Pains of Our Mothering
This post isn’t just for you mothers. I’m talking about the superpower of our maternal instinct and how we have turned it against ourselves and our relationships… How we under-mother ourselves as we prioritize another’s needs over our own, and then over-mother them into a disempowered stagnation. How it is interpreted by the masculine, sometimes rightfully so, as emasculating or smothering and throws them into fight or flight mode. How we all struggle...

Love for Lease

Love for Lease
“I love you for free.” Yes! And yay! And let’s bring more of this to ourselves and each other! Funny thing is... there was a “For Lease” sign hanging right above this beautiful message. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud... We WANT to love for free, and freely so. Yet, many have that lease sign towering above this desire, and the terms and contracts at the ready. “Sign on the dotted line,...

Sorry Not Sorry

Sorry Not Sorry
When your apology goes against yourself, your power, your truth… When it is for them, to make them feel better or right, or to win their love... When you are “sorry, not sorry” but you say it anyway. Here are five questions to ask yourself before you do the “Sorry Not Sorry”... SHAME:What is the underlying shame; is it theirs or yours? OBLIGATION:What does that shame obligate you to be? RESPONSIBILITY:Where does your...

The Death of Prince Charming (repost)

The Death of Prince Charming (repost)
In today's society, the search for true love often trumps the search for God but each is a worthy quest that, with the right map, will bring you to the same place— you. I struggled for years in my relationships with men and with God. Though I was raised to be an independent and self-sufficient woman, I secretly sought completion. I pushed and I pulled on their love— the part of me that...

Can I Get a Witness?

Can I Get a Witness?
The spiritual path teaches us to love unconditionally, but what about BEING loved unconditionally?  Though we inherently receive the love we give, there is a distinct power in being witnessed by the eyes of love.  In the loving reflection of another, we have an opportunity to dissolve self-judgement and thus to love ourselves more deeply.   We may practice self-love and even experience genuine happiness, but often there is at least a piece...

True Love

True Love
True Love ridesOn the whispers of old winds, Down long-forgotten roads of forever, Through candlelit towns And snow-covered castles. Oh, my Prince,I must bury you now In this cracked earthof my heart. For in its chambers There sleeps my truest love. Your death bringsHer awakening.

Invitation

Invitation
We're two hearts beating, Two souls meeting, In the breath of a love unknown. We could dance in this moment; It could be forever. Our love only sleeps for its pleasure. So lay down your laws Or forget your cause; This love is constant in surrender. Resurrect softly, my Love,  And shed your bones at the door. Love shall be your maker.
