Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide is Here
Mother’s Day is a day where we come together to honor the women who have shaped our lives. Our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and mother figures are at the core of our incarnation, and our relationship with them is at the center of our being. With this in mind, we have created a Mother’s Day Gift Guide to help you celebrate the powerful women in your life.
Some of us have traditional, loving, and healthy relationships with our mothers. For others, the relationship is complicated, tumultuous, or even severed. These relationship types apply to mothers in both the traditional and non-traditional sense. Mother energy is very sacred but also comes with a human side.
When we talk about crystals for Mother’s Day, we speak to a huge range of experiences. Mother energy transcends from ancestors to living relatives, to surrogate mothers, children, and mothers-to-be.
Whether your mother-relationship has been an experience of deep love and support or you have experienced trauma, Mother’s Day can be an opportunity to heal, grow, and connect with yourself and the women who came before you.
