When Mother’s Day rolls around,

I see a mixture of celebration and pain.

For some,

it’s sunshine and roses—a day to celebrate the amazing moms in their lives. 

But for others,

it can feel like walking through a storm without an umbrella. 

Instead of joy,

the day stirs up a whirlwind of pain and unresolved emotions,

highlighting the deep scars of the Mother Wound.

Does it resonate with you?


Mother Wound is a profound emotional injury that can significantly impact

how we see ourselves and interact with others. 

It often originates from unmet needs, emotional distance,

or unhealthy dynamics in our relationship with our mother. 

Maybe your mom was cold, absent, critical –

the opposite of a warm, nurturing presence. 

Or maybe she was trapped in her own struggles,

unable to truly “mother” you. 


it played out that detachment and lack of attunement harmed you deeply.

You grew up feeling unloved,

unworthy like you weren’t enough. 

Those emotional scars shape your self-perception, relationships,

and ability to create your desired life.

It’s an agonizing undercurrent of shame, loneliness, and grief.

This wound can drag heavy chains through every aspect of life,

affecting happiness, relationships, and self-perception. 

It’s exhausting, isn’t it?

But you don’t have to stay trapped in that darkness.

Healing is possible.

It begins by understanding that the weight you carry and the pain you feel are valid—and they can be healed. 

I will guide you through practical steps to address and heal the Mother Wound

helping you move from shadow into light, from pain to empowerment.

Express the Pain

The journey begins by giving voice to those feelings. 

You’ve bottled up the hurt, fear, and sadness for too long.

Finding a safe space to unburden those emotions –

through a journal, trusted friend, or counselor – is powerfully healing.

Practice Compassion

As you express the pain, self-compassion arises. 

You begin to understand that ache isn’t your fault. 

You were just a child longing for attunement. 

Extending compassion to your younger self cultivates self-love.


From that place of self-acceptance grows the remarkable power of forgiveness. 

This doesn’t mean excusing harmful behavior –

it means releasing the toxic anger weighing you down. 

You don’t have to invite your mom over for tea. 

Just open your heart to human imperfection.

Re-parent your inner child

With that freedom comes an ability to re-parent your inner child. 

Do little nurturing things you missed…

like cuddling a stuffed animal,

enjoying a bubble bath,

or going to the park. 

Self-care isn’t spoiling ourselves.

It’s taking care of our needs.

This soothes those deep emotional wounds.


Most of all, walk the path from shame to self-love. 

That Inner Critic telling you you’re unworthy, unlovable, not enough? 

Silence it by showering yourself with positive self-talk. 

“I am precious. I am worthy of love. I deserve happiness.” 

You can become the loving parent you never had.

Here’s my bonus sharing…

Engage in a Spiritual Ritual

To deepen your healing journey, incorporate a spiritual ritual. 

Create a sacred space in your home with elements that resonate with comfort

and healing—perhaps candles, flowers, or personal mementos. 

Regularly spend time in this space meditating and connecting with your inner self. 

Visualize receiving unconditional love and support from a nurturing figure,

filling all the voids left by past wounds. 

This practice can profoundly transform your internal landscape,

reinforcing feelings of safety and worth.

And good news…
