What is the Mother Wound?
Make the invisible visible so you can liberate yourself from the pain of the mother wound
What is the Mother Wound?
Comparison: not feeling good enough
Shame: consistent background sense that there is something wrong with you
Attenuation: Feeling you must remain small in order to be loved
Persistent sense of guilt for wanting more than you currently have
“In our patriarchal, male-dominated culture women are conditioned to think of themselves as “less-than” and not deserving or worthy. This feeling of less than has been internalized and passed down through countless generations of women.”
“For daughters growing up in a patriarchal culture, there is a sense of having to choose between being empowered and being loved.”
“Most daughters choose to be loved instead of empowered because there is an ominous sense that being fully actualized and empowered may cause a grave loss of love from important people in their lives, specifically their mothers. So women stay small and un-fulfilled, unconsciously passing the mother wound to the next generation.”
“As we heal the mother wound, the power dynamic is increasingly resolved because women are no longer asking one another to stay small to ease their own pain. The pain can then be seen as legitimate, embraced, processed and integrated and ultimately transformed into wisdom and power.”
Healing the Mother Wound
4 week self- led Intro Course
Feel worthy of life
Feel worthy of love
Feel empowered to change your story
And become the woman you were born to be
Many of us have experienced difficult and complex relationships with our mothers.
What most of us don’t realize is how strongly our relationships with our mothers impact our ability to thrive, be happy and actualize our full potential. The way our mothers treated us becomes the way we treat ourselves, which has a ripple effect into every area and every relationship in our life. Unless we heal it, the wound continues to be passed down through the generations.
The mother wound is not something we need to feel shame about; it’s a doorway to inner freedom and full potential.
Become the Woman You Were Born to Be
Coming into full empowerment requires looking at our relationship with our mothers and having the courage to separate out our own individual beliefs, values, thoughts from hers. It requires feeling the grief of having to witness the pain our mothers endured and processing our own legitimate pain that we endured as a result.
This is so challenging but it is the beginning of real freedom. As the pain is embraced and transformed, it can no longer hold us back in our lives.
It’s time to become the woman you were born to be & give yourself what your mother never gave you.
Bethany teaches in-person workshops in the US and in Europe, including Move Beyond What Your Mother Never Gave You and Become The Woman You’re Meant to Be.
