Since last year, when I created a podcast series called ‘Unclassified Woman about the topic of women who are childfree or childless, by circumstance or choice, I’ve been doing so much reading and discussing of the topic.

I discovered that one of the definitions of ‘to mother’ is ‘to produce’ or ‘give rise to’.

A question I have been asking is ‘what have you produced’ or ‘given rise to’ in your life? So I also pose these questions to you:

What do you want to produce or give rise to in the future? 

What would be the most meaningful activity you could ever undertake?

What makes your heart sing?

What brings you deep satisfaction?

We all have mothers (whether they are physically present or not). Our beliefs and perceptions of this primary connection is one of the biggest influences on our ability to receive love.

If you are feeling blocked or challenged in your romantic relationship – or doubting your ability to attract one (if you would like to), then please look to the relationship with your parents. Be open to see it differently and be truly honest with yourself.

Maybe the biggest gift you could give to your Mother (on any day of the year) AND to yourself is to explore any aspect of that relationship that needs healing?  This is powerfully impacting your ability to receive love. Read how here.

This is something I explored deeply from EVERY angle for years, especially throughout the breakdown of my marriage and subsequent divorce. I obsessively examined why I didn’t feel I could effectively connect with and receive the sort of partner that I wanted.

In 2003 I committed to letting go of everything standing in the way of 100% self-love, which has been (and still is) quite a journey! Doing this sacred work on the path of self-love has hands-down created one of the biggest internal (and then external) shifts for me. This is not about whether or not you ‘get on’ with your Mother. It’s much more complex and multi-layered.  michellemariemcgrath

It’s about realising that however you perceive her and your relationship with her and to her – is colouring ALL of your relationships. I can’t stress this enough. Green juices and daily meditation are wonderful supports but there are no short cuts to radical self-love and lasting change.

So how is your ability to receive love being impacted by the relationship with your Mother? Read here.

7 Self-love Intentions for Singles

7 Self-love Intentions for Singles

When you have been single for a while and are feeling ready for a new relationship, there can be a tendency to presume that everything would be ‘better’ if only we were with ‘Mr or Mrs Right’. No-one is a stranger to dreaming about meeting that ‘perfect’ person. Apart from a few short term ‘experiences’ I was single for 8 years after I split from my ex-husband. I regularly wondered if I would be in a relationship again. My wonderful partner (well worth the wait) did not appear until I had long let go of any attachment to being with someone. Coincidence? I think not. Of course I then met him in a unromantic-related situation. I have dedicated many years to this notion of a loving relationship with myself and it’s not for the fainthearted.  If we are really honest with ourselves, many romantic relationships are based on need.  Putting aside initial chemistry, there is anticipation (often unconscious) of having certain needs met by the other person and the belief that our life is going to become greatly enhanced.  Many relationships can quickly become co-dependent as each party falls into a comfortable pattern of interaction. We all long to create […]

Alchemical You

ARTICLE BY: Michelle McGrath
Alchemical You

In this fast-paced, artificially fragranced world, we’ve forgotten that the true power of scent is sacred and subtle. The power of aroma transforms and transports us to other realms, states and worlds. Our sense of smell is so deeply connected to our sense of imagination and contains the magical, limitless power to affect our feelings and behaviour. When used as a sacred tool, scent provides the signals your brain needs to transform. What if you could: Use the power of scent to establish and embody new ways of feeling and being in the world? Harness your memory-encoding sense to erase limiting thoughts and beliefs, and re-code with powerful, lovingly aligned ones? Create and establish your own daily self-love ritual? Unique, curated collections of alchemical oils designed to facilitate inner transformation are here! Each collection of alchemical oils is accompanied by a self-coaching journal. This is an editable PDF document that you can type directly into – or you can print off, use as a guide and write directly into your journal.  Using a set of complementary alchemical oils, you are guided through a process of inner alchemy. Each week (4-6 weeks long, depending on which experience you choose) you work with an oil to embed your […]
