There has never been a more important time in history for Mothers to step into our individual and collective Spiritual Power and Authority. The Motherhood Evolution provides transformational tools for mothers everywhere to thrive and evolve our collective culture’s vision of what motherhood can be, bringing into fruition the Dalai Lama’s prophecy that “the world will be changed by the Western woman”.

Mothers are are doing the most important work on the planet and yet, are among the largest invisible, undervalued and spiritually bankrupt segments of society. Mothers are the spiritual heart of the family, but often place our own needs last on our “to do” list. Mothers are gifted the most profound spiritual relationship when meeting our child for the first time and often lose that spiritual connection when moving into the “doing” phase of caring for our children, ultimately feeling disconnected, disheartened and alone. If there is one group of people on the planet who need to be spiritually nourished it is mothers.

The “put your own oxygen mask on first” axiom that is heard before every flight ensures that every mother flourishes. The better we mothers care for ourselves, the better able we are to care for our children. Rather than sacrificing for the sake of our children, we must commit to thriving for the sake of our children. Thriving mothers change “our” world and consequently, change “the” world.

Mothers are here to be seen. Mothers are here to shine. It is time to value ourselves. We must dare to say that by putting ourselves FIRST as mothers, we actually have MORE to give to our children … this is essential because we can’t give what we don’t have. When we Mothers value ourselves, we model to our children that they are important, that they matter. Individuals who value themselves change the world.

Mothers are the untapped Spiritual Powerhouse on the planet. Mothers have an untapped spiritual power within us … qualities of connection, nurturing, intuition and a spiritual authority that comes from our “being”, not our doing. In her most recent book, The Law of Divine Compensation: On Work, Money, and Miracles, Marianne Williamson recounts that when asked to define genius, Buckminster Fuller responded, “Someone who had the right mother.” The Spiritual teacher Amma, or Mother, known as the “Hugging Saint” states that “the forthcoming age should be dedicated to awakening universal motherhood. This is crucially important. The future of humanity lies in the hands of women. Women everywhere have to actualize the qualities of motherhood within themselves. This is the only way to realize our dream of peace and harmony in the world, and to further progress in life.”

I am calling in a new conversation, a new way of “being” as a mother and a new paradigm. Please join together with other mothers dedicated to thriving and be part of the Motherhood Evolution.
