‘Mothers’ – Some people can’t live with them and others can’t live without them but in all cases, none of us would be here if it were not for them. Women take on a massive life changing experience to carry a baby from conception to birth and whether the baby stays with mum or not it will always be a miracle between mum and the fertile egg that evolved within her.
From this perspective, mothers are the nearest thing to God regarding miracles and somehow, even when raising children, mums just seem to have a magical inner sense and knowing about her cubs. As the saying goes’ mum knows best when observing her child.
What happens when we step into the role of being a mother? I took a look through Numerology and the numbers to understand more. The whole name of Mother adds to a 7. This gives us the expression; which includes the talents, skills and shortfalls that arise from the role of mother.
The vibration from the name Mother brings to us a person with an analytical mind and a huge desire to understand answers to life’s hidden questions and each and every one of her children. It is through our children that we discover so much more than just a relationship; we dabble in philosophy, mysticism and even science. I remember with my third baby, the children and I explored what was going on inside mummy’s tummy and how the baby was growing.
A mother has a great sense of knowing and a yearning to seek the truth for both herself and her offspring. And so begins the journey and evolution from a singular lifestyle to one of life’s greatest teachers tirelessly working to prepare and guide her children for the outside world.
Like all numbers, the 7 Energy Expression Number will have challenges, hurdles and obstacles that with the love for her child will have mum endlessly do due diligence over and over to avoids risk and pain to her offspring. The scepticism and other lower aspects of this 7 Energy could cause mum to hold onto to her cubs too tightly or for too long stunting emotional and mental growth of her cubs. Wrapping children in cotton wool is not a realistic approach to supporting the child’s long-term growth. Look to understand the difference between illusion and reality. As a mother, you are able to tune into your fine and exquisite mind to find insight for the next step forward. Allow your child to fall at times, understand you will not always be there in every moment and they need to be able to pick themselves up and dust down to expand.
Mums, be conscious that you are still a person that needs love, care, peace and time out, ‘me time’ to rejuvenate and repair. By awarding this to yourself you will be better equipped to call upon solutions and clarity during difficult and challenging times. I can not emphasise enough that you need time to be by yourself. Too much social interaction can cause stress, fatigue and leave you depleted. You also need your privacy and a place that you can shut off from the hustle and bustle of life. ‘Children, toilet breaks are for mum and need to be in private even in the early days’. There needs to be a transition period and in today’s fast paced and over protected world this seems to have been overlooked.
As women. you have gone from an adult and a ‘me’ world to a baby/child world, which is almost all about them. This challenges the intellectual 7 who craves stimuli to the brain. It is the thinking number. How many times have you heard a mother mention she feels brain dead after spending endless hours and days with a toddler? Somehow in this role you tend to keep your thoughts to yourself, it is here that you stop being you and appear to wear the labels of mum, mother, Jenny or Charlie’s mum and then comes the day when you realise you refer to your children’s friends mums as someone’s mum and are now guilty of not seeing the amazing woman before you or her seeing you for that matter. Yes being a mum can steal your identity.
At the same time being a mother will give you experience and growth no other job can. As a mum, you suddenly appear to know it all, or at least you think you do and when you watch other mums you may well find yourself judging their capability and parenting practices. Lol! They are on a similar journey to you and the difference lies in each persona’s Numerology stacked up behind the role of ‘Mother’. However watching other mums, you could become over-protective and when Charlie asks can he go to Ryan’s house for tea, you forget Charlie and Ryan’s friendship and make the decision on how you see the mum. That’s not to say Charliedoes not get out for tea but your 7 energy will make sure you know endless information about Ryan’s family background and their history, after all, Charlie is priceless to you and there is no bond greater than the metaphorical umbilical cord between mother and child. Seriously, is it ever cut; their pain is your pain as is their joy.
The ‘seven’ vibration is the seeker and searcher and every step of the way in your child’s life you will be doing this, what baby food, best nursery, followed by every level of schooling and education and you will go to the end of the earth to have your child in the place you feel is best. There is not a role that you won’t perfect and your child will become your greatest motivator in skills that you never dreamed possible for you. The 7 seeks mastery.
The 7 energy highlights a mother to have great counselling skills and when we add the 11/2 energy from this name vibration of Mother; the heart energy we are adding into the mix; mediation, cooperation, harmony, support and intuition.
When we look at the 7 in the role of mother and the rewards, they will seldom come in the form of material gain but in contentment from a higher source.
A mother, no matter her age appears to acquire wisdom beyond her years. The heart energy of a mother is one of peacemaker. You have a hidden ability to settle conflicts and create harmony. You are a healer and a visionary. Think of all the sibling squabbles you have worked through and how you have created a vision when things have been tough and you have had to lead the family through.
Have you ever noticed how intuitive a mother is? She seems to know stuff without the children sharing, where things are or what the children want or needs. Mother’s are magic and they do have eyes in the back of their head. A mother wants to please often at the cost of her own well-being; this is where a good supportive partner and father come in but we will leave dad for Father’s Day. The 11/2 and the 7 combination have a mother ‘feel for’ and understand others, dad and each of her children – we need to remember though that the others, dad and the children need to assist and support mum by not being selfish and thinking they are the only one to get their desire. As a mediator mum wants to find the solutions but she needs a willing team.
Now while we have been looking at the inner self of Mother, let’s take a brief look at the external self. This shows up in the 5 energy, adventurous, stimulating, sociable, communicative and charismatic, how else does a mum enter a class full of primary school children and have them willingly read or bake with her. Added to this the 5 brings big energy and a willingness to learn new things.
This is the number where mum gets her negotiation skills from and her enthusiasm to play the same games over and over, whether football or Barbies and still make each time feel like the first time. This 5 energy gives mum’s the adaptability to automatically pick up the role of educator, chauffeur, chef, care-giver, story-teller or organiser, while at the same time, be ready at any moment for whatever may suddenly drop into her lap.
A point of warning here – mum’s are not robots and on day’s like today (Mother’s Day), her birthday and from some period throughout every day mum’s should be credited, valued and appreciated for the Super Hero in them to manage to always pull things together.
Let your mum know how special she is. Remember to say thank you for your washing, your meals and your clean home. And accept that all lifts are a gift, whether to school, a friends or work. Mother’s are the most hardworking people you will ever meet at home, in the community and at work and they do it all without payment. So chip in, help out, unload the dishwasher, run the vacuum around the house and put your laundry in the basket, she is your mum and not your servant. Without her, you would be just a pipe dream.
May today be a day your family look after you so that you get to sit back and observe your clan for a change opposed to being in the midst of them. It will give you an alternative perspective. Mums enjoy your cubs for one day they will fly the nest and embark on their own journey which you will have laid the foundations for.
And mums, remember you too have a mother
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to the 2 billion mums across the globe even if today is not officially Mother’s Day for you, you still deserve a mention.
