Over the last month or so, with my focus on my Sun-son, I realized I’ve been more tired, but my waking hours haven’t changed much.
I went into meditation and received insight that I thought was pretty profound.
“Sun-son” and I are in the midst of creating a mother/son energetic bond – and I have to say, it feels like we are both going through some type of energy-initiation.
Energy cords direct energy lines that form between us and each of our loved ones. The mother-child energy cord is unique because it’s usually formed in utero.
It’s kinda like the umbilical cord, in that it connects a mother’s sacral chakra with her child’s navel chakra (meaning a mother’s emotional and creative energy is directly linked to her child’s will, personal power, and mental constructs).
And, as nature intended, over time children become more energetically independent.
However, when a child loses or is separated from his birth mother (as with Sun-son), the replacement mother figure (me) will form the energy connection with the child at whatever age he or she is.
All mothers (natural or not) have a unique impact on her child’s health through their energy link. This can be exhausting, especially for the mother.
Usually, with a birth mother/child relationship, over the course of childhood the mother-child cord weakens, and the child becomes more independent energetically.
However in the case of Sun-son and I, he is forming an energetic bond. We are linking through several chakras, while simultaneously becoming energetically independent….which feels like a “tug of war” to us both.
My Lesson: Maintaining Self-care is key.
My personal “maternal energy metaphor” comes from frequent air travel: If the plane is going down, put your oxygen mask on first, before helping your child.
I spend each morning helping Sun-son ground.
From an energetic perspective, encouraging him to be in his body help’s him heal and thrive in his lower chakras (and the areas of life they govern -like manifesting, creativity & confidence) while supporting my own energy – which has been his “anchor”.
However, the area that I psychically feel our connection is my heart. The “Spirit to Spirit” connection we have is undeniable and I often have to remind myself to take time away just for me.
Being a parent always involves an “energy sacrifice”.
I’m reminded that we are best able to give when we’re grounded and “Self Full”.
And we are best able to love when we are firm in our own connection to Source…the Life Force energy that runs through us all.
You are loved~
