Mother’s day can often bring up a host of feelings. For some, it brings a sense of joy, gratitude, and love.

Yet, for many it activates feelings of grief, anger, abandonment… a deep longing for the Mother that never was, and never will be that which was internalized, and yearned for by the younger, tender parts who live within us.

I have discovered in my own life, and the lives of the women I have worked with, that it can be very healing, nourishing, and transforming to have a relationship to something greater than our personal sense, and experience of mother.

We no longer need to be daughters in waiting to be held, and loved unconditionally. Nor do we need to project our need for mother onto others to nurture, and give the younger tender parts from earlier stages of development the love they seek.

We can compassionately re-mother ourselves when we consciously open our hearts to the healing energies of a spiritual mother. I experienced her from Kuan Yin.


We “met” 23 years ago at a residential heart-awakening initiation conference. Within the circular conference space, sacred objects, and statues of deities from diverse cultures were beautifully placed on surrounding altars. I was completely unfamiliar with most everything displayed.

Yet, I was continuously drawn to a large, beautiful, bronze, regal appearing feminine form, gracefully seated on a lotus blossom. Curious, I finally asked the conference assistant about this mysterious statue. She directed me to Anna, a lovely woman from Hong Kong.

Graciously, Anna answered my inquiry. She reverently transmitted to me, her love, and knowledge of this beloved, Chinese Goddess, Kuan Yin, “Mother of Mercy and Compassion, who hears the cries of the world”, revered by millions, particularly women.

One year later, I received a badly damaged package from Hong Kong. I hoped whatever it contained wasn’t breakable, if it was, it surely would not be in one piece!

To my absolute amazement, within this tattered/semi crushed box, was an exquisite, delicate porcelain statue of Kuan Yin. Unbroken. A gift from Anna, who I hadn’t seen or talked with since the conference.

I was in awe, and filled with gratitude to be so unexpectedly blessed. Kuan Yin entered my home, and my heart.

She is a visible symbol that gives form to an invisible energy. She represents unconditional love, compassion, and healing…the emanation of the Divine Mother. I center in my heart , and call upon Her in times of need, comfort, challenge, gratitude…


She is my go to Lady. For myself, my loved ones, all sentient beings, and our beloved world in desperate need.


And I am her go to Lady, to serve as an embodiment of Her Love…
Mother’s Day blessings of love to you… 

With heart,
