Embracing Our Mother Nature

Featuring the words of inspiration from one of our CinnaMoms "Savvy"

Collectively, women have been evolving. By gaining awareness of and embracing their divine femininity, women all over the world are embarking on self-love and healing journeys. Social media swarms with women resonating with themes of (hashtag): self-love, inner-work, divine feminine energy, black girl magic, and womb healing. In light of this transformative and freeing energy, the arrival of the Spring season (Spring Equinox) began with a literal flapping of wings and with Mother Nature at full bloom.

In the beginning weeks of March, Southern California experienced a majestic butterfly migration, where countless people bore witness to millions of butterflies crossing their paths. As they flew by, I was reassured that my own life was in harmony with this event. I, like other women and mothers, have been transforming and preparing to emerge from past pains, struggles and general feelings of being stuck or lost just as the caterpillar experiences before breaking free from its’ cocoon.

Moving forward, blossoming, fertility and birth are just a few themes associated with Spring and on April 21, many will be observing the Easter holiday. In its’ themes, Easter, celebrates the rebirth or the resurrection, which also parallels the journey of motherhood. Mother Nature is thriving at this time and it is only natural that women are embodying this nurturing energy and having general feelings of wanting to “bounce back”. This is a wonderful time to embrace what it means for you to be a mother.
