The mother archetype is a representation and a celebration of the female act of creation. The joy of giving birth not only to children but also to creativity, community and to love. A healthy mother archetype shows us how to nurture sustainably, requiring attention, presence, and a healthy sense of boundaries. This is the sacred act of mothering. All we need to do is look at Mother Earth who is abundant and giving, knowing how much of herself to give in order for this nurturing love to be healthy and sustainable. Men and children can also connect to the Mother Archetype in this way. Mother Archetype examples include but are not limited to Mother Earth / Great Mother (of course), the Empress from the Major Arcana, The Virgin Mary and Tonanzin.
How to use the pieces: These pieces have been hand crafted with love and intention and because of that are already a strong talisman. We suggest creating a space capable of holding a very personal ceremony to call upon the strengths of the Mother Archetype. Feel yourself grounded and held by the Earth and ask her to fill you with the unconditional love of a Mother. As a gift offer her any thing that may be holding you back from embodying your female creative powers so that she may incinerate them in the heat of her volcanic belly. Thank her and thank yourself for getting you to this place. Feel free to put some flowers, some herbs, a mantra or a secret in your vessel to get the most from your talisman.
