It was at my friend’s baby shower or should I actually say a baby blessing. This was such an amazing and beautiful ritual, I wish every expecting mom would have. It was there, in a circle of women when I heard a voice of one of us saying to think of a fear and write it down on a piece of paper. In that instant I knew that my biggest fear has just vanished, the fear that I have always carried deep tucked in my darkest part of myself – a fear of losing my daughters, this one has disappeared as if by a touch of a magic wand. The other one, not a fear in itself but more of a doubt, a thought that I might not succeed, that I may not be able to provide for them, has been also gone. Surprisingly, I was there feeling such a strong connection to Mother Earth and all these women present around me, I gained an insight and a powerful knowledge of who I actually am. This divine energy present in a circle was an effect of us women being together emphatically connected to each other and especially to the one who was expecting. I felt a surge of love passing through our hands as we held each other, a flow that was meant for our mother-to-be but nevertheless circling around and blessing all of us with its powerful loving energy.
This has given me a wonderful feeling of freedom, being not bound by fear is a liberating experience. We wrote down our fears on tiny pieces of paper and even though mine have already been dissipated, I burnt it and watched it being consumed by fire.
