Mothers-in-Law ~ What I’ve Learned From Mine #3

And the saga continues.  It’s amazing, actually, that no matter how comfortable, or how trying, this relationship has been in my life, I’ve learned something from each and every one of these connections and these women.

Up this week, MIL#3.

A Woman’s Life Transitions

Maiden

I suddenly come alive within my body in wonder and acknowledgment of it’s miracle.  I feel it as I am, it is, I am…I am…I am, I keep telling myself in amazement.  I’m here, on the inside, looking out, listening, learning, watching, absorbing.  No one knows this, the people around me seem unaware of it, the world seems unaware of it, but it’s true.  I wave my hands wildly, my spirit trying desperately to be acknowledged, to be recognized.  I’m like a sponge ready to absorb all that life has to offer me, all that I can grasp with eager hands, an eager soul, an eager body, an eager mind.  What will I feel?  What will I learn?  How will I grow?  How do I begin this journey in earnest, really, how do I push off and begin to move forward?   And how will I know when I’ve reached my destination?

Mother

They all turn to me– the children, the husband, the community, the world.  I am the center of the wheel.  The universe is spinning around me as I create, build, grow, come alive with new ideas, and immerse myself in new projects.  The spokes of the wheel come to me, racing through space and time from all directions, and me solitary and still at the center, taking the blows of life full-force.  I am in the middle of life, going at a hundred miles an hour, watching the world around me race by in a blur of color and shapes.  This is my time, my time to succeed, my time to taste the glory of life, my time to fill all the empty spaces.  I feel that all the world, all the wild things in it, all the green things in it, are growing from something within the center of me.  I was, I am, I will be.  How can I keep from being absorbed by all the frenetic scattered energy and activity around me?  How can I maintain my own identity without losing it amongst the myriad roles that I play in this life?

Crone

Sometimes I’m tired, tired of the physical struggles of life.  I’m tired of cleaning this house, I’m tired of trying to pull everything together for everyone around me.  I’m tired of carrying life’s responsibilities on my shoulders for so long, through so much, through good times and through crises.  I’m tired; I’m old and I’m tired.  I would just like to sit in a chair, beneath a tree, with my hand on a cat and listen…listen to the wind in the leaves, listen to the earth beneath my feet, listen to the cat beneath my hand, listen to the birds and voice of nature.  I want to be still, if even for a moment, and listen to the whisper in my ear, the voice of the goddess.  She’s calling to me now, her voice laced with a sense of urgency.  She’s waiting for my answer.  Have I learned enough?  Have I done enough?  Have I finished my tasks?  What is left to do?

My Next Book: The Spiritual Feminist

“The Spiritual Feminist”

“Part devotional, part grimoire and part empowerment manual, The Spiritual Feminist offers readers her-stories, anecdotes and correspondences for dozens of goddesses. A wise, accessible and often irreverent guide, author Amythyst Raine-Hatayama reveals the Goddess in us all, showing women of all ages how to honor, embody and invoke Her many facets. Once I began reading The Spiritual Feminist, I couldn’t stop. The feeling of understanding, and being understood, forged an intimate connection to the Goddess—riveting me to the page—stirring spiritual yearnings and opening new ways of seeing Her…almost as if for the first time.”

~Janet Boyer, Amazon.com Hall of Fame Reviewer, PaganSquare Sacred Symbols blogger and author of Back in Time Tarot, Naked Tarot, 365 Tarot: Daily Meditations and other titles

Coming soon!

Women: Your Input Could Wind Up In My Next Book

Ladies– Your input could be included in my next book:

I’m looking specifically for your goals…Goals for the Maiden, the Mother, & the Crone.

Send me a PM at My Facebook Page,  or an email at witch_of_endore@yahoo.com telling me first if you are a Maiden, Mother, or Crone, and then a list of your personal goals, whatever they may be. If this information is included in my book, it will be done so anonymously.

PLEASE Do Not Leave Your Response As a Public Comment (that is, your list of goals)– PM me, or email me.

All other routine comments are very welcome. 🙂

PS–

I want to say “Thank You” to the women who have responded. I hope that women out there continue to send me their goals (whether complicated and Big, or mundane and delightfully Simple, it’s all good). The response has been so intriguing and interesting; there’s such a diverse group of women out there. I’m so hoping that I get a sufficient number of responses so that I can include this section in The Book. Keep ’em coming Ladies!

Love ya’ Alls

Edit:  The Book is Finished!!–
Thank you all for your amazing contributions!
