My dear friends, we love you so very much,

Happy Mother's Day to those of you who nurture life in any form. Be you male or female, is the energy of the Divine Mother within you that gives birth. It is the energy of the Divine Mother that nurtures, not only yourselves and one another, but your ideas, your projects, and plans! It is the energy of the Divine Mother that helps you sit in silent reception to God's love. For within God, dear ones, all energies exist, and all energies are present within you to some degree.

Take a moment and breathe. Feel the gentle presence and energy of the Divine Mother within. For some of you this may take a form – Mary, Quan Yin, a saint or guru. For others you may feel a gentle but powerful presence. God is God, dear ones. The Divine contains all. The Divine makes itself known in all. Today however, we ask you to use your intention and relax into the arms and the energy of the Mothering presence of God.

No matter whether your physical mother was nurturing or not, you can bring this nurturing presence of Divine Mother up within you. If your physical mother embodied these qualities, count yourself fortunate. If not, ask to find them within yourself. Love yourself. Nurture yourself. Care for yourself. Celebrate your good ideas, and soothe yourself when you feel challenged.

Dear ones, no matter what form the energy takes, you all wish to feel nurtured, cherished, and loved. You can find this in a man, woman, Mother Nature, or always within yourself.

The energy of the Divine Mother is soft and strong, for "she" wants you to feel loved and supported. The energy of the Divine Mother steers you in the gentlest of ways. The energy of the Divine Mother helps you honor your heart, receive your guidance, and sit in quiet bliss.

Perhaps this Mother's Day, whether you are a mother or not, you can do something kind and nurturing for yourself and perhaps your physical mother. If your physical mother was not nurturing then send light to her soul. If she is with us, then tell her all the things you cherished about her, or with great honesty, the things you wish she had been.

Opening your hearts to love dear ones, in any way you do it, is opening your heart to the love and Presence of the Divine within, and tomorrow we celebrate this in the form and energy of the feminine presence that lives within you all.

Happy Mothers day to each and every one of you – male, female, human mothers or not, for each one of you has given birth to greater light in this world and nurtured its flame in your own hearts.

God Bless You! We love you so very much.

Hi Everyone,

I love my mom. We have reached a beautiful place of respect and care for one another. It was not always this easy. You see, I had a "mouth" when I was younger. I wasn't easily told what to do. On one hand, I was a "goody two shoes" trying to please everyone, but when I felt that I was being commanded, my internal warrior rose up.

I remember once, after "mouthing off" ducking behind kitchen counters in a game of "you can't catch me," while my poor mom chased after me with a wet wash rag, intent on letting me know that my outburst wasn't acceptable. Eventually we both broke out laughing.

I have come to realize over the years, the challenges that my beautiful mother faced when she was young, and the generational disadvantages that were heaped upon women of her time. She worked down the hall from the founder of McDonald's when she was fresh out of college and had the opportunity to buy a franchise for an amount that is less than a modern house. She wanted to do it. It would have been worth millions now... but no one wanted to help a woman "buy a burger joint" back then. Instead she got engaged. Her fiancée broke it off to become a priest. My dad stepped in and the rest is family history...

My mom became a very good wife and mother, but there was always more to her. She worked two jobs when we were in high school to help save up for our college education. She taught us math tricks, carted us all over the place, and helped us learn to be creative. I didn't appreciate most of that when I was younger and wanted my way, but looking back, I see the myriad of gifts she gave us.

Now at age 81, after nearly 20 surgeries, including two hip and two knee replacements she keeps going. I am in awe of her persistent spirit. I am i awe of her commitment to see good where she can. She is an amazing grandma to my nieces, and a good friend. I give thanks.

Nonetheless, I didn't learn how to nurture myself from my mom. She was raised in a culture of female martyrdom, which I adopted as well. It took me years to learn to put self-care – beyond the basics of eating, sleeping, and exercising – into the equation of my life.

Now, self-nurturing is as important a part of life as every other responsibility. I wake up three hours early to do my breathing, exercises, cold showers, and self-massage. I eat a healthy breakfast. I spend a little time reading something inspiring or in silence. I take care of my body, mind, and soul. I take time in silence, in nature, and nurture myself in as many ways as possible to keep me "full" enough to care for the thousands I serve.

The Divine Feminine takes many forms. It lives in your mother, and in you. It lives in the saints I go see for blessings every year like Amma Karunamayi. It lives in the vast beauty of Mother Nature. I like to sit quietly at times and ask specifically for the energy of the Divine Feminine to rise up within and around me. She feels like a warm fuzzy blanket. She reminds me that God is love, and not the judgmental "father image" I was raised with. She reminds me that I already have the answers inside.

Best of all, she reminds me, she is me, you, and everything in creation. She is He, and He is She, and both are We.... It is mind blowing but beautifully felt when you ask to experience the feminine form of the Divine.


Here are some pointers to help you connect with the feminine presence of the God – the energy of the Divine Mother...

1. Pick an Image of Divine Mother

We are visual creatures and if you're not accustomed to relating to the formless aspect of the Divine, choose a form that represents Divine Mother for you. It might be Mary, Quan Yin, a Hindu Saint, an image you makeup, or even your very own mother, or a powerfully loving woman you know. It might be a pink fuzzy blanket or a cloud of pastel energy. Allow your mind to wander, and ask the Divine Mother to give you an image so you may more easily relate to this energy.

Then close your eyes and ask her to embrace you and speak to you in your heart. Ask to feel her. Breathe, release expectations, and simply see what you feel. You may not hear words, but you will be embraced by pure, nurturing love.

2. Imagine her Presence in Nature and New Life

The energy of the Divine Mother gives life. Imagine her love within every offering of a seed, a bud, a new tree, the sunrise, a fawn, and the birds. Imagine nature is the cloak for her invisible presence. Now imagine your very own nature, your body, is also her cloak. She lives and breathes within you.

Breathe and imagine her love rising up within you.

3. Nurture Yourself

Close your eyes. Ask the energy of the Divine Mother, "How can I best nurture myself?" and listen to the first thought, idea, or image that pops in your mind. Resolve to do this more often. As I typed this, I asked the question, and heard, "Go eat now, before it gets too late." Time had escaped me. It is good guidance.


Happy Blessed Mother's Day tomorrow, to all who are actual mothers in this world and to all – male and female – on this list who are working to give birth to and nurture the light within us all.

Love you all!
Ann

Recipe of the Week
Cheese Blintzes with Strawberry Sauce
Recipe of the Week

Mom gave me this recipe years ago. I have no idea where she got it, but I do know it is divine! It is a great make ahead and heat dish for brunch and company. If you are gluten free, use Bob Red Mill's 1-to-1 flour instead of regular.

Crepes:
1 c milk
¼ c cold water
2 large eggs
1 c all-purpose flour
2 T sugar
Pinch salt
3 T unsalted butter, melted

Cheese Filling:
1 ½ c ricotta cheese
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 large egg
3 T confectioners’ sugar
1 T lemon juice

Strawberry Sauce:
1 quart strawberries, sliced
¼ c sugar
¼ c water
1 teaspoon cornstarch

Unsalted butter, melted for making blintzes
Powdered sugar, for dusting

Whisk the milk, water, eggs, flour, sugar, and salt together until the batter is smooth with no lumps. Mix in the melted butter. Refrigerate batter for 1 hour to let it rest.

For the filling: In a small bowl combine the ricotta cheese, cream cheese, egg, confectioners’ sugar, and zest and blend until smooth. Refrigerate this as well until you’re ready to assemble the blintzes.

For the sauce: Mix the strawberries, sugar, water, cornstarch, and lemon juice in a small pot over medium heat. Simmer and stir gently until the berries release their natural juices. The consistency should be a bit chunky, it will thicken up when it cools down.

Make the crepes: Put an 8-inch crepe pan or nonstick skillet over medium heat and brush with a little melted butter. Pour ¼ c batter into the pan and swirl it around so it covers the bottom evenly; pour back any excess. Cook until the crepe batter sets and the bottom is lightly browned on the first side, then flip it. Cook it on the other side for 30 seconds – 1 minute. Flip onto a plate and continue making the crepes until all the batter is used. Cover the stack with a towel to keep them warm.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Spoon about ¼ c of the cheese filling along the lower third of the crepe. Roll the crepe and place it in a 9×13” baking dish seam side down. Continue until the pan is full.

When you’re done, brush all the crepes with melted butter. Bake for 10-12 minutes to warm up and brown a little on top. Watch carefully. Pour the strawberry sauce on top, dust with powdered sugar, and serve hot.

If you are not going to make them immediately, put them in the fridge, and then thaw to room temperature. Bake them in the 400 degree oven as above, possibly adding a little more time to heat them through.
