How are you planning to celebrate Mother’s Day?
If your Mom is (or was) an important part of your life, this is a beautiful day to honor her. I always make a Mother’s Day toast to my wonderful Mom even though she’s been gone for over seven years now.
But just as important, Feng Shui shows that this is a day to honor the Mother within yourself.
In Feng Shui the Mother is represented by the “Marriage & Relationship” sector of the Bagua Map.
The I Ching symbol for this sector, three broken lines, is the most Yin, or feminine, area on the map and symbolizes the affection, nourishment and sympathy that only a loving Mother can provide.
The Relationship sector represents your romantic relationship because this is the kind of care and devotion you desire in your most intimate moments.
It also represents your own efforts to “mother yourself” even if you don’t happen to be in a romantic relationship.
So this Mother’s Day take a moment for self-care with the pampering and nourishment you deserve.
What kind of treat would you just love to indulge in?
A massage or time at the spa, an invigorating hike, relaxing with a book, watching your favorite movie (again)?
But make time on this special day to honor your own needs while you’re at it. You deserve it.
