For those of you States-side Mother’s Day has just come and gone. So today I decided to slant my meditation this week to Motherhood.
Search the ‘net for a picture of ‘a mother’ and you will discover thousands that include a young mother with her baby. It is the traditional image of mother’s love personified.
But spare a moment to the women/mothers who are in the eighties and nineties. Their oldest child could be in their lower to middle sixties, but to the mothers those pensioners are still their children with a wealth of living beneath their belts.
Mother’s Day is a time for coming together, families and fun and with that in mind I’d like you to find your quiet spot, and centre yourself by taking three deep, slow breathes and focussing in the both your inhalation and exhalation.
Imagine you are inhaling bubbles that set you free from your everyday routine. Your worries and stress ease and you feel light and happy.
Now imagine that like a child with his/her wand and container of soap you are blowing streams of bubbles into the air. You may want to envisage your bubbles filled with special messages for the recipients.
Fill each bubble with love and watch it rise into the air and float away. Send each bubble to someone who matters to you, your Mum/Mom, your child, members of your family and your friends.And don’t forget to have fun with those bubbles too. When you are ready, take three deep slow breaths and come back to the present.
