THE FOUR MOTHERS

THE FOUR MOTHERS

What befalls the earth befalls all the sons and daughters of the earth

–         Chief Seattle

 

In ancient Mayan tradition there are Four Mothers spoken of.

 

Firstly though there are the two Mothers:  

Rainbow Mother,

and then there’s Nurturing Mother.

 

When Rainbow Mother is thwarted

from her powerful drive toward creativity

she becomes Crazy Mother.

 

And when Nurturing Mother

is thwarted and blocked from

her inner drive to nurturing

she becomes Death Mother.

 

But when Rainbow Mother

is aligned with Nurturing Mother within herself

she is at peace.
