And so here you are, mother, lover, parent, provider, teacher, kidi coach, inspirer, giver, nurturer, chief power source for the allness of your life, full time magical inspiration and of course head chef and meal planner !
Let’s face it when we say YES to bringing forth our children we say yes to the greater mantle of realigning our whole being to that of love and divinity. Those 3 little letters, that one bigger word, the energy and vibration of the whole meaning of YES has implications and effect that we can only imagine during the nine months that we carry this new light of love.
This YES holds new horizons that can place the best laid pre pregnancy dreams and visions plans for our lives in the holding tray. In that brave and exciting moment of allowing the head and heart to speak together we accept the golden sceptre, that for past generations and eons the ancestral lineage of our mother tribe have said yes to and graced. Motherhood as a right of passage is here to wake and shake us to the very core of our being. As we say YES to bringing life to life, we say yes to the greater Universal yes that flows through us to expand and bring forth love to this life. This is an enlightened passage of grace…
Oh the spectacular magnificence of being the Mama, the vessel for rose petaled new beginnings. A blessing to behold.
Carrying this light, we plan, potter, prepare and ponder over every detail, ticking off the giant checklist, prenatals, space creation, body changes, mood shifts and not giving a flying fig in the process. We are driven by a force so strong that just knows that it knows that we know and honour our task of birthing now.
People, friends, family those in the know of the secret club of birthing initiation tell us that our life will ‘change FOREVER’. That my friend meant nothing to me as I carried my daughter unaware of the task and demands that awaited me on her arrival.. I didn’t quite get what they meant, how could I ? as my life was already changed dramatically with being a lone mother from my YES moment.
And then BOOM, the day came and she arrived. With a 37 hour labour and a screaming new baby who refused to breastfeed with constant colic, I had my work cut out. As a new lone mum I was in shock, my daughter in distress and my world in a tailspin of emotional mayhem. This was slightly more than a change forever, more like a total mess !
Naturally I grew to love motherhood as my daughter and I blossomed in love the ‘mess’ merged into bliss and over time I learned to navigate the newness of my YES and put every ounce of my Spiritual awareness in to my new role as a mindful mum. No vaccinations, goats milk, only natural organic food, good sleep and lots of nurturing time together, no TV at home and my desire to bring self love awareness to me and my daughter was my eclectic recipe for wholesome child rearing. My daughter a strong leader with a full hearted Spirit loved early life and was hungry to learn, an early walker, talker and reader I often felt that I had given birth to a mini Einstein ! this was a mix of exhaustion and exhilaration for me as I reclaimed my sense of childhood at 38 wallowing in learning and play.
Teaching her to love and accept herself above all and embracing myself as this love inspired me to follow my heart and go for my long held dream of being a Spiritual teacher and songstress. Many learnings and yearnings later as my daughter reached 8 I opened my heart to celebrating me and to listening to my heart’s desire and following a calling to learn more and to embrace my purpose as a Spiritual and Metaphysical teacher. This knowing came to me through a spontaneous awakened experience whilst walking a Labyrinth and from this my life changed again… I continued to say YES to re birth and re birth ! Singing my songs and creating and teaching my self awareness teaching programme for children and their families, OmmaySing Me, really is a dream becoming true for me. You see my message to you here is not one of inspiring children and bringing them up mindfully and teaching them kindness, self love and inner peace. This is something that you already know that’s why you are here and signed up to this page.
My deepest desire for you is that you realise and listen and stay true to your Truth, and follow your heart and expand your dreams into reality. Seventeen years ago I said YES and I realise that this yes was not simply to have a child, it was to give birth to ME, to the Spirit that yearned to soar and fly and be the version of myself that I had shelved for so many years. That YES is a constant an I am here to ask you now, right now in this moment…
What are you saying YES to right now ?
Is it nappies and frustration and crying tantrums and loneliness… OR is it the opportunity to learn, to grow, to own your stuff and release the unwanted to recreate your life from the heart outwards, with inner power, conviction and LOVE. Now is the time for you to take charge of yourself, your life, your thoughts and feelings and to surrender to the small, still voice that sees and knows you as far much more that a tired mum and devoted parent. Now is the time to LOVE YOU and blossom from your heart from your Truth.
Loving Yourself is not an option, it’s not a luxury and certainly not compromisable.. Self Love is the greatest POWER TOOL that exists and its each of our birthright.
Ours and Our children’s.
Laura’s Top Self Love Rules !
Knowing your Yes and knowing your NO….. getting clear with your boundaries and lovingly staying put, when we are clear life sees this and reflects it back, every time. Know what you stand for and stand up for that.
Be honest with YourSelf…. honour yourself and your feelings and when things don’t feel right LISTEN and move accordingly. You don’t owe anyone anything…. You owe it to yourself to live in your truth, however uncomfortable that may feel for those we love, follow your intuition, your heart and your calling… This Is Your Life.
Make time and space for YOU….. life shapes itself to your beliefs and desires and so if things are hectic and chaotic, that’s how you are expressing. Make space for yourself every day, twice a day, create your Mama Power Hour and stick to it, love it and enjoy it.
Clarity, Clarity, Clarity…. every time be clear on what YOU want for your life. You are the artist, the paint brushes and the canvas, thats a huge deal and you have the power to design every detail…. so go for it.
Look in the Mirror …… see what’s working and what you perceive isn’t working and WORK on it all lovingly… when we clear the blocks Miracles happen.
Your Word is Your Life ….. we speak our life into action…check the thoughts, words and feelings that you carry around with you about you. Your self talk is your template for your life…. up your game and watch the language that you use for yourself, would you speak to a friend in that way…. if not then lovingly ditch the durge.
I realise that as a lone mum I am never lonely, however painful and trapped things were and still can be at times, I always knew and continue to know that life Loves Me and whatever the challenges and frustrations are, I have the power to choose my thoughts, my actions and the habits and patterns that I live, just as Louise Hay sais ‘I am the only thinker in my head’. The key is to recognise what it is I we are here for and to believe that the way is made clear, following our intuition and enjoying the ride. Motherhood in itself is my teacher and as I review the sixteen years gone by and the numerous Yes’s that I’ve gone for, I now know that by being a mother to myself first and nurturing, loving and honouring my dreams and passions for life, I am then able to be the best version of myself as a mother to my daughter.
This all takes time, willingness, energy and patience and it can be very easy and feel safe to put off the work and stay in the same spot, and yet easy isn’t always honouring ourselves. Easy is many times just a convenient excuse for staying put in fear of change and doing the same old expected things that really are a distraction and a hindrance for living out our dreams. I know that you are here and reading this because you feel that you have so much more to experience in this life beyond motherhood and parenting and that as you willingly choose to take small steps to loving you unconditionally your world and horizon will open up to the greatest knowing of who you are….. an incredible Mama. Take it slowly, stay in your truth, listen to that still small voice and Love Yourself first. This is the greatest yes that you can declare for you, for your child/ren and for your life right now.
Theres a new playground on the block …. You can swing on the swings. Slide down the slide. Go on the roundabout and fill up your heart with YOU ……
LOVE all of you and enjoy each and every moment of your greatness
