Moon Daughters & Sisters

 
Moon Sisters & Daughters , you know we all have them & we are all moon daughters .I am a moon daughter to my mother & grandmother .  My last writing was regarding moon mothers /grandmothers. Those women who nurture me in that motherly/grandmotherly way . This is about equally giving women who yes some also provide mothering to others yet are often younger than myself , children or the same age as my daughters . Women who also give to me deeply but I am connected to in a very similar way . Women I am often extremely protective of . Women I share with & provide nourishment to as they do me .
Women growing .
The younger generation  the ones I as grandmother see & know are my reason to give & share for they are the next generation & raising our next generations .
Being grandmother/Mother we protect without binding or forming codependency .
We teach in order that our daughters may be wiser than we are . We allow growth to form individuality . Moon Daughters do not copy they take a teaching & immerse it within their being making their own self work  .
As these women grow I need to be here for them . Provide comfort for when they experience persecution , are tired from their parenting , when they feel drained from societal pressures. rest from the often hypersensitive emotional experiences in young lives  .
Moon sisters & daughters are the next moon mothers/grandmothers . some are mothers already yet not quite grandmotherly . The longing & want to be old at times but not there yet .
They are the love mommas & soul sisters .
Protectresses need to keep the flow open for these moon daughters ! Think of how many times a materialistic over emotional distraught world blocked us when we were younger . We grandmothers know all to well how we would've flown had we not had those societal blocks .
So it is extremely important to me that these girls & young women have the access to bloom .
I look to myself & my own mother & the things that stood in our way stifling our gifts .
 So if a moon daughter can have the freedom to let her spirit rise from child onward . This is an amazing goal to have & brings warmth to my core & silent smiles to my face .
As moon daughters we are often impatient & react to soon . This diminishes over time & we grow into having patience to stand in reflective time . Yet that stage is so important . We cannot take those experiences of trial & failings away either . Yes we get tired & drained but these are lessons needed .
So I offer my granny space for when my daughters need to come home just as my mother or older ones offer me .
of course I have my own two beautiful medicine daughters Natasha Rose & Jasmine Milan
 have sisters  who are also my daughters whom I feel very protective of , they give so much & share so much  Emily , Cari , Rachel , Arwen , Melanie, Kayce, Jaclyn, Hannah,  Jo, Lorraine,   Sam, Alison,  Sarah, Mona , Sonja,  Boe, Kim ,Melissa, Kara , Shalynn,  ......... Some I will not mention ;-)
I meditate on them , sending blessings & washing them in moonlight

Sweet Poem

Sweet Poem
 
 
 
awakened by sweet poem that she is
forever daughter
children will be an old wish
anam cara of an eagle son
snow swept waters
souls on winter winds
people of spruce under indigo skies
sleeping giant & inuksuk arms
lingering sadness & yet love deep rises
reflected in a poem , stays silent in a dream

moon mothers/grandmothers

 
Moon Mothers/Grandmothers we all have them .
These are the comforters , the protectresses we go to . They are always there , open . Non threatening . Providing safe space & more importantly the safe person .
The place & person You can be small with . You can let go with , the non judging one . The one who offers You cradling , ears , soft words , clear sight & straight direction . Discerning thought offered in slow calm manner .
The person whom has helped You be true to self & able to encounter yet another day in the world when you leave her presence & space .
Some may think that while I am now a grandmother I am ever strong that I do not need nurturing , comfort , wise words . Well I do .
So when the world gets to me in to many attacks , shaming , beat down & worn I go to my mothers & grandmothers .
Some are living so I can actually go & have physical comfort . Some are in spirit yet reflection is always with them & their experience & wisdom shine on me .
I am blessed I still have with me my mother . My mother teaches & offers me goodness .
When I need I have the spirit of my grandmother great grandmother & great aunts .
I have saints & sinners women similar in style , similar in persecution felt .
Hildegard , Momma T, Kateri, Dorothy Day, Yotanka , Paula , Polly ,Dallas, Rachel, Therese, Dorothy, Lore, Tina, Dana, Mary, Patrice, Susan , Linda M, Audrey,    Catherine Young , Raven Lang , Jeannine Parvati Baker , Gladys Cook , Linda Mc, Audrey Logan ,Adrienne,  Susanne McCrea, Darlene Birch
Stevie Nicks , Loreena Mckennit , Buffy Sainte Marie , Elizabeth Cotton
 
Many of these women are my dear friends &  are moon women who offer this moon mothering/grandmothering
This is who I am , a moon mother/grandmother
 
I had been meditating on this long the other day . I have had to take a break from FB again . In my croning this is happening more & more with the new moon
I need comfort from words hurting
persecution . I know this is what we do as humans . Every single person does it . Most don't admit or own it but everyone does .
I am no different in that & I do own it & have sorrow for hurts caused . I also experience pain via others . I need to heal .
As we learn how to heal we begin to know that recovery from victimhood does not mean we will never experience victimization ever again . Never be hurt again by others , rather we learn how we need to heal & heal in healthy ways . Mine is retreat , reflection & forgiveness .
I seek nature , I seek comfort , I seek wisdom , I seek understanding .
So I go to my moon mothers & grandmothers .
As I was meditating I was thinking on my cronehood . Something I shall write about in future for this is a stage in life as motherhood . Which did not just happen in one step but many forward, backward & standing still steps.
I have had people question my grandmotherhood. People wishing me to remain always mother . I am not always mother . I am grandmother . I know the day I became grandmother in my strength . It was year 4 into my grandmothering . A child so broken by an abusive bully crying in my car . I as mediator had chosen to see both sides of the parents struggle in separation . Giving chance for both to not make the experience about self but rather be parent for child . This was not happening . A spirit was being broken & abused . The destruction of a child's soul , the purposeful tormenting of the soul innocent I will never tolerate . I have had to hide children before from abusers . Offering shelter & protection . My own children & friends of my children . This moment was even stronger than that & I cannot explain for it is only in that true moment of grandparenthood one will be . I saw purpose , the next generation is the importance . I that moment became true grandmother as I drove towards home with my grandchild now drained to point of exhaustion sleeping yet not in a peaceful way rather a tormented sleep brought on my exposure to absolute lunacy of an adult no where near deserving of title of parent . So I took him .I held him . We spent 3 weeks while the supposed justice system decided his fate . I nurtured him in nature , read books , held him as he cried missing the parent who did provide true love could not be with him .
So you can see yes I am Boreal granny now . I know it , regardless of the shaming of others .
So I know true mothering /grandparenting & I know we all need this
Yesterday a beautiful friend came over . Not staying long . We shared . She brought along a beautiful set of cards she had just acquired . She offered me to chose one . I cut the set .  counted 3 . 3rd card . goddess of midwifery . Yes goddess of the big belly Haumea of birth , vegetation , of all things come . A goddess of birth of strength . Mother giving .
Yes she is mothering me , she is in me .I am her she is me .
I return to the women who have not judged me . The ones who gave to me so freely . Who Loved .
So I in turn can heal & grow again . Giving birth to myself yet again . So I may offer comfort to those others who need moon mothering . I will hold them, I will offer nourishment , I will offer ears & soft words , I will offer reflection & the time in which to do it with.
I am moon mother /grandmother as those who came before me & are with me now
spending time nourishing & growing
 listening to Kellianna I walk with the goddess because it soothes my soul

Fund Raising

Fund Raising
 
 
I am putting together a few Fund Raising pages in order to raise funds for upcoming courses .
So why fund raising ?
Well , while I am officially now  certified hypnotherapist & folk healer I wish to continue my course work in Folk Healing & also get my Master Hypnotherapist Certificate.
Many who know me know that I work in what is alternative & traditional therapies.
Those who come to me come because the institutional type of therapies have not & are not working for them .
Using Alternative Therapies also means one does not receive nor have access to government educational funding nor are t6he therapies covered via insurance .
Thus people within the Alternative Therapies communities must raise their own funds to continue in learning .
 I also do not feel it selfish to ask for assistance in raising funds.
Many I work with are also of low income . I trade & give a lot freely . I also for those who wish to offer via $ provide a sliding scale .
It would be wonderful if we lived within society which would support me so I could be provided with shelter, food , clothing etc. but it does not work that way.
In order for myself to learn I also need to pay my teachers.
While I am open to receiving donations of any amount I also have put together a list of items & services which I can offer in return . As well as contact information.
 
my prices are actually not full prices because I although certified feel I am still so new to practicing hypnotherapy & TLT I do not charge what my instructor & others who have been practicing for many yrs charge plus I am still continuing to train via other courses
 
I know You All know I am grateful but I will say it anyway
Thank You from my heart !
