Happy Mothers day to all the Mums.
This week we have a quick chat to Biet Smikens, Mama , Best selling author & spiritual teacher, on some mum things. Enjoy
Tell us whats moving in your world atm?
The present moment is always moving. We think things are coming. We think things have gone. All that we want is right here. I am squarely exactly where I am meant to be. My wish is to be of great service to the world and I kind of just bow to that wish if that makes sense.
Any wisdom on mum flow?
Um. Being a mom is so hard and also so easy. I try not to fool myself into believing that it's all easy. This way I am set for success. I try to be real rather than perfect.
Tell us a little about your motherhood journey
I lost my own mom to death of cancer when I was 7. I lost my first daughter to SIDS at 4 months old, dead in my arms. I then had Cash at age 39... same age my mom was when she passed away. I feel grateful that while it hasn't seemed "easy" on the outside I have always felt held by an invisible force. I love being a mom to Cash. It really taught me how much my mom loved me. I think I really never knew how much my mom loved me until I loved Cash for a while!
What inspires you?
Guiding people. Being with equals who are all alive and inspired. Reaching for stars. Love, art, music, poetry, making shit.
Any wisdom from Cash?
Cassius get a kick out of everything. She is the sun. I think her wisdom is that she is perfect and also human and a toddler. This blend continues with us forever. She is an embodiment of it!
