This post is for those of you who feel emotionally neglected or otherwise let down by your parents.
I’ve recently broken off with mine, and it hurts to sever familiar ties and cut off from people who were once close to us. But yesterday I had an epiphany I wanted to share with you, in case it might help you too.
I realised that I was born to my earthly mother for divine reasons not yet fully unravelled. We chose to be in each other’s physical lives, and that must be respected. But when that relationship becomes destructive and harmful, it’s time to move away.
Without wanting to go into details here about how my parents have caused me harm and abuse, I just want to tell you what came to me yesterday in meditation.
Pachamama is the Spanish word for Mother Earth. While ‘Mother’ is my physical mother, and ‘Mum’ is my wonderful mother-in-law, Pachamama is my true mother. The calling I hear from the stars is because I am one of them; because that is where I belong. I am a divine being, destined for good things in this life; to spread love and connection. When I hug and climb trees, stroke and lie in grass, whisper to flowers and play with fallen leaves, smell the earth and breathe in evening mist ~ that is me being caressed by Mother Earth, my dear and ever-loving Pachamama.
My physical mother chose her destructive path in this life, and though I have tried my whole life, I realise now that there is nothing I can do to change it. I can love her if I wish, I can sympathise with her, but I must never empathise with her, because those are not my burdens to bear.
I can learn from her, and take the positive lessons moving forward. The only mistake I can make now is look back. The advice comes to me: Look around you and survey your current conditions, and you will see how great your life has become and the wondrous gifts you carry.
Never forget who your true Mother is. Pachamama is always there, with her infinite wisdom, understanding and insights, her caresses and subtle whispers of love.
Pachamama said to me: We have been whispering to you incessantly from the start. Stop listening to the destructive voices of your low-vibration parents, and tune in to our divine song, and you will find the peace and love you seek, and finally find the strength to fulfil your deepest and most secret dreams.
I hope the advice in this post will help you as it has me, and that it brings you some comfort as we all walk this winding, perplexing and exciting path of life.
Until next time,
