Great Mother Love Meditation – When life is too much, do this.

 In Self Acceptance, Self Care, Self Compassion & Forgiveness

Watch this Great Mother Love video and meditation & surrender what’s weighing on your heart

I don’t know why we think when we grow up that we are supposed to be all strong, and have it all together. That when we become parents or responsible adults that we won’t get scared or confused. That when life is hard we should just buck up and push through, instead of doing what a little kid would do – have a little cry, wrap up in a blankie, and ask it’s mom to make it all better with a kiss, a hug and her magic wand.

Now that’s what I am talking about – Great Mother Love.

We all need it, yet most of us have no idea how to get it.

You need Great Mother Love in the times when life feels like it’s too much… like it’s is too hard… like there’s not enough… like the burden is just too heavy… like you might even want to give up and quit.

From a self-love perspective, these intense times are all good. It just means the shadow is coming up to be healed and transmuted into light. But from a human perspective, while you are wading through the shadow, no matter how much light is promised at the end of the tunnel, what you really want to do is crawl into bed, wrap the covers over you and come out when it’s all over?

But you can’t. People need things from you, you have to go to work, all that stuff that’s contributing to the stress in the first place!

So what can you crawl into and wrap yourself up with? Great Mother Love! Great Mother Love, when you tune into it and open to receive it is like receiving a big huge hug and kiss from the divine, or the best mother that you could ever imagine who has the power to take it all away and make it better… a place where you can just lay your head on her shoulder and let it all go… and SURRENDER all that you don’t want to carry any longer.

So how do you get to this Great Mother Love? Well that’s what this video, meditation and surrender stuff is all about.

Let’s alleviate some of this fear, doubt, stress, anxiety shall we and get you connected to Great Mother Love, shall we?

Follow these steps.

1. Watch the divine spark video I taped for you, which includes the Great Mother Love meditation

2. Give over to her what you want to surrender right now. The burden, responsibility, fear, anxiety, and be specific. Really give it to her and let her heart take the weight off your heart.

3. Post your SURRENDER PRAYER up here on the self-love blog “I SURRENDER… And I will post back and witness and super charge your prayer.

4. Open up to receive Great Mother Love from all the places and people it shows up through, including yourself. Great Mother Love feels like caring, nurturing, embracing, sweetness, nourishing, warm, unconditional, empty of all fear. Include it in your post by saying “I AM OPEN TO RECEIVING GREAT MOTHER LOVE!)

Here’s my surrender prayer to the Great Mother

I SURRENDER THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING THE ONE IN MY FAMILY THAT HAS TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT, TO BE THE ONE WHO MAKES SURE ITS ALL TAKEN CARE OF AND WE HAVE EVERYTHING WE NEED. I AM TIRED OF TAKING IT ALL ON AND I SURRENDER THIS BURDEN! TAKE IT GREAT MOTHER. I AM OPEN TO RECEIVING YOUR GREAT MOTHER LOVE.

Okay now your turn! Post on the self-love blog

Really let the energy flow and FEEL IT as you write it – remember it’s your surrender prayer, let it go and open up that heart to great mother love, let her divinity take on what your humanity could never hold.

    Was just tearing, then weeping, then crying
    loud out in the rain here…

    Then came back, and noticed your email, opened,
    listened, and MAGIC happened!
    Suddenly all my inner tragedy fully disappeared,
    i feel light, bright, happy, and in love again…

    Am old enough to greatly understand, what and why’s
    going something on within my both minds after i lost my
    nearest and dearest 46 years long deeply in love with being…

    It’s like my Angel-Guardian Gabriel sent that
    outrageously devastating news, and two hours later
    YOU, dear Christine, as a balsam for the soul…

    There’s no right words to express my gratitude
    to You, oh-wonderful-Magician-of-Love as You are!

    Huge THANKS!
    May Love Angels embrace You and Yours all the time.

    Big warm Hug

    I surrender my wanting of my longtime boyfriend who walked out 7 months ago because he was hurt by my insecurities. To surrender my fears and doubts about him. I surrender my doubts about the voice that comes from deep within to trust him, and that he is the one for me, and that he is changing too. Even though I know that there are many men out there, and we had our differences. I surrender my need for love from a man, even though I know that I am getting on well by myself. I surrender my fear that I will mess up again when I next bump into him, and my longing to be back in his arms. I am tired of struggling against my heart, tired of all these thoughts about him, tired of wondering if I am deluding myself thinking my thoughts are disguising as my intuition. I surrender this burden to you, Great Mother. Please take it, take it all. Let your wisdom reveal what my path in romance will be. I am open to receiving your love, Great Mother! =) Thank you very much. I love you.

      Rosanna – I can FEEL your desire to surrender this addiction to this man’s love to the great mother — and i witness you willingness to do so. Let yourself fall into her arms and let HER LOVE soothe you, in a way that no man’s love ever could. This is when you will stop giving your love power away and start feeling loved no matter what. Then partnership is possible. In love, xoxo

Take it great mother, and free my soul to focus on the beauty of the present moment and the enjoyment of my true girl-child nature and simple engagement in interesting matters.

    I am so tired of feeling hopeless & discouraged re: the deepest desires of my heart – that I am always behind everyone else/the curve -no matter how hard i try. i feel i must be less deserving & have very bad karma.

    Of trying to please everyone & constant pressure & obstacles in the way.i have been struggling for years. I am tired of trying to get help & being willing to get the right support in place only to be told i don’t qualify . I am tired & ashamed of my financial dependence too . I wish I could get a break and had other more reliable trustworthy & caring support systems in place . I am tired of family & friends making fun of me and comparing me to others. I am tired of feeling isolated & lonely .

    Thank you.

    I prayed your prayer of surrender as I have been carrying a huge burden of responsibility for my families welfare. I started carrying this burden when I was a child and I lost my mother to narcissism & child abuse. I never had that caring, loving experience of a mother and so surrendering to the love of a Great Mother opened my heart to a deep longing I had forgotten. I want to make this a practise in my life to heal my broken heart.

    I surrender the fear of not being able to invite clients to me and my practice.
    I surrender the self-criticism for still needing people to appraise me, see me, compliment me.
    I surrender the lack of self-trust that makes me doubt even when I’m right.
    I surrender the burden of all the limitating beliefs I have about myself, that gets me to think I’m not able to create the life I want for myself.
    I surrender the pain of not receiving the love and appreciation that I desire from some people around me.
    Please, dear Great Mother, take all this burden away. I am open to receive your great love and support and wisdom !

    I SURRENDER my need to be in control. Things have happened recently that have made me realise that control is an illusion. The reality is that I am not even control of whether my next breath will come. I surrender my views of the way it is “supposed” to be and I lean into what is. I allow myself to fall into the arms of God, the Great Mother Love.

    I surrender my fear of being abandoned, of being rejected. I surrender the guilt I feel when I reject people first, before they reject me, thinking that I am protecting myself when actually I’m hurting myself. I am tired of the feeling of being shut up on a pattern of fear that doesn’t allow me to receive and to love unconditionally. I am tired of my fears control me and that they boycott the love that I deserve. I am open to receiving your Great Mother love.

    I also surrender my control. I accept I cannot control the situations in life, and I let them go. I surrender the need I feel to change situations I provoked with my fear. What is done is done and I surrender my overthinking in trying to get another opportunity. Take it Great Mother, and I am open to receive your unconditional love and your/my forgiveness for my mistakes.

    Bless you Christine! I’m weeping at the moment and feel such ease as I surrender! Thank you for this meditation, I’m taking it all in.

    I surrender the burden of uncertainty. I surrender my control to know it all, to take care of everything, pushing myself to always be one step ahead. I surrender the pain of seeing, feeling all of my potentials and capacities and not being able to live up to them yet. I surrender the need to always give more, do more, love more. I surrender feeling guilty that I’ve outgrown certain relationships, I surrender feeling guilty that I have need to let go of them. I surrender myself to Great Mother’s embrace. I’m allowing Her to take on this burden. I’m allowing to be Mohtered.
    I’m open to receive Mother’s love, compassion, kindness and care!

    Much Love

    I do not trust nor love the God of my youth. (Catholic upbringing responsible for this). However, Christine, your timely and deeply heartfelt message here moved me to tears. It feels safe to surrender anything and everything to the Great Mother. Here goes: I surrender all the lies about myself that I believe to be true. Let me no longer gag and suffocate from self-hatred. Instead, I turn to the comforting arms and love of the Great Mother. I TOTALLY surrender all my sh—- thinking.
