You know all this week I've been working in my garden, getting my hands nice and magnified. I waz thinking about my own mother and wanting no desiring a closer relationship with her. But a few days ago az I was pulling up weeds and planting more veggies, it all became clear to me. Mother earth iz my mother. She loves, feed, nurtures, heals, listens and shares every ounce of her being with me in a way that feels good to me. I appreciate my mother soOOOOOOOO much I feel more love, more joy, more authentically me when I'm in her divine presence. Now I can let go of the illusion that I "need" my birth mothers approval, acceptance and love to be whole. The truth of the matter their waz never a lack of love, only a lack of understanding. I know she loves me in her way, but theirs nothing wrong with wanting to be loved in a way that feels good to me. My connection to Mother earth (Spirit) I don't have to force of become less of myself to get along. She loves and accepts me just az I am and you know what I wouldn't have it any other way.

I've found a similar soul soothing in developing and nurturing a relationship with an older woman who interacts with me in ways that my birth mother isn't able to. Like you say, she does love me in her own way, the best she can with what she knows. Creating a relationship with my friend feeds me and has been incredibly healing and freeing. I get it now that I can have the childhood, and any other part of my life, that I've always wanted, just by shifting my perspective, and my heart. Kudos to those of us who get there, to a place where we don't contribute more to the negative vibes hovering around the planet. They get activated enough; let's focus on activating the more powerful positive vibes instead and watch what happens!!!
I had this conversation with a few SiStars just last week. Looking to Mother Earth or the Great Ocean Mother, or the Yoniverse as the Mother Principle in one's life, especially when they have not had a good relationship with their birth mother.
It is good that you both have embraced the love of Mother in a different way. I give thanks!
