The relevance of this outlet has grown for me lately, causing me to evaluate what exactly my intentions are with the corner of the world I inhabit. I've always saddled the line between professionalism and profanity, needing my blog to be a safe space for both. I've felt a drive lately to dig deeper, and have a space where I can offer what's truly going on inside of me, to offer what it is that I want to share and do so in a way that I feel confident developing it into it's fullest potential.
I have so many ideas for this space. And it turns out that people might be paying attention.
So I'm going to go ahead and answer the big question:
What is the MOTHER FRONT??
It is the space of consciousness that our earliest memories exist. Earlier than time allows, earlier than we, as we know ourselves, were awake.
It is the place where the beauty within and the violence of this age collide, where we battle constantly to hear the truth of our own voices.
It is the place where it is safe to cry in front of others. To admit that we feel too much in a world that feels too little.
It is what it means to be home.
In my work with child-bearing families, the most beautiful moments are the ones where I witness people finding this place within themselves. Where people walk into their own power as fully embodied physical and spiritual beings. And in the work I do with myself, I am constantly seeking the safety of this space, the refuge of my power. I want to share this in a deep way. I have a deep need to help heal humanity in my own subtle way.
What does this look like?
Of course, it's political.
But it's a truth being hidden in the essence of ourselves, and we can all have a piece/peace of it if we give ourselves the tools.
Movement, meditation, relaxation.
Feeding ourselves purely, physically and spiritually.
And the honoring of the traditions of humanity.
Through our children.
Mother to mother.
People to people.
It's healing the lost art of love.
So watch out. In the next few moths, I want to do something I've never done before, and that is to commit, full- and open-hearted, to this process and offer everything I know about how to do it. This includes gentle parenting, primal motherhood and birth, guided meditations (which I'm really excited about recording and possibly broadcasting), and complimentary medicine lessons in bodywork, herbalism, and energy healing. I will still journal here from time to time, and always post the tools that are relevant to me in the moment with honesty and emotion, but expect to see a major shift, because it's already happening.
I'm excited to make this next step, to make the Mother Front a tangible thing in my life, and perhaps even possibly yours.
