I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoyed your "Healing the Wounds of Motherhood" article. It moved me so much. I am the mother of three boys and because of an early mid-life crisis, chose to give residential custody to my ex when my youngest was only 4 years old. It was the toughest, most agonizing decision of my life, and I carried guilt with me for many years.
Even though I knew my decision was based on the highest good of all, and my three sons are all very close to me... society places this burden on females and stereotypes us as "uncaring," "selfish," and "negligent," when this is not always true.
I have come across people (lightworker friends, acquaintances) who let me know that they couldnít believe at the time how Iíd "given up" my children for the love of a soulmate. This brought back all kinds of sorrowful feelings to me, and your article has released a lot of that crap - I thank you and your Guides for sharing this important information.
As far as "giving up" my sons, I never felt I did that. I was always there for them, even though I didnít live under the same roof. I was a phone call away and saw them often. Our time together was filled with love and caring, something they did not get with their dad and stepmother, the latter of which resented me so much she would take out her anger and ill feelings on them.
My youngest has finally left his dad and come to live with my husband (soulmate) and me. I can see that his challenge was putting up all those years in a household that was stressful and unloving, because he has evolved to such a mature level spiritually, and I am proud of all three of these fine young men for enduring what they did.
I never felt I abandoned them until society told me so. But now, thanks to your words of wisdom, I can find peace in my soul. Blessings to you, dear friend!
Love and Light,
Ann Ulrich Miller
Thank you so much for your articles in the September and October issues of The Star Beacon. I admire your courage and insight.
At some level you represent Every Woman, the children are Every Child, the fathers are Every Man. We all have suffered much because the Gift of Pleasure so lovingly bestowed on all of us by the Mother has been made a scourge of pain, guilt, fear and shame by our fearful need to control. Even the name, sexuality, seems inappropriate.
As you have presented Every One, the transformational impact of the roles you all lovingly chose to play spirals outward, way beyond the readership of The Star Beacon, to heal at deepest levels across time and space.
Once again I acknowledge your courage for doing this for all of us.
May you soon be blessed again with the experience of sensuality that is the birthright of us all.
