#ThrowbackThursday to the day this Sun changed my world forever and made me a Mom. Abner Yog, with his golden curls and strong, clear, brilliant Spirit. Ushered in by none other than #PamelaHunt at #FarmMidwiferyCenter, right in front of the community alter in the meditation house. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–
I am so grateful to have been a helper to #InaMayGaskin during one of her workshops…being a pregnant model for women training with her to do this incredible work of home birth. Having been so moved and comforted by her book, #SpiritualMidwifery, for me, it was like being in the presence of a rock star.
And Pamela (stitching me up in this image), a strong, calm, assured presence. I remembered reading about her assisting Ina May in her own births, during their original caravan from California to the foothills of Tennessee. So many babies has she witnessed through the sacred portal of SHE.
Abner, means Father of Light, because I saw his awe inspiring light body in my very first OBE (out of body experience) before he was born. It was raining when the rushes began, but I knew the sun would be shining the day of his birth, and sure enough, the next day when he emerged, it was. Rays gleaming through the dancing branches of a freshly blooming dogwood tree, a very special plant for the women in my maternal lineage. I felt my Mamo and Great Grandmother right there with me. And Yog, named by my husband, because it means union, a symbol of the Divine balance of masculine and feminine.
In just 11 days, 8 days after my Birthday, Abner will be 9 years old. It’s hard to believe it’s already been almost a decade on this path of Motherhood. And what a gift of love, laughter, tears, challenges and growth it’s been. .
