A mother blessing is a unique and sacred ceremony for a mother-to-be. It stems from the indigenous traditions of blessing way ceremonies, which historically were held for warriors descending to the journey of battle, as well as women who were embarking on the journey of birth. The ceremony focuses much more on the emotional and spiritual aspects of the birth journey, than it does the physical or monetary gift giving aspects of a traditional baby shower. Gifts for mother, child, and family are always welcome at a Mother Blessing.. A fear release session is usually incorporated in for the mother-to-be to express her deepest worries to her closest comrades. We build her up and help her work through her fears, leave them behind, and prepare for her deep journey to the stars to retrieve the soul of her child and bring them safely earth side. Group activities can be incorporated as well such as belly bump painting, creating birth affirmation flags, crafting special items for a birth altar, making flower crowns, drawing a sacred foot bath or offering foot massages, or any massages to the mother. Anything to make her feel like an empowered queen ready for her battle. At the end, the group comes together to set all of our intentions into the positive. The core of the mother blessing is the actual blessing circle. A blessing to the mother can take shape in many forms, but the heart of it is to bless the way for the new mother on her journey.
