What is the Mother Wound?
Make the invisible visible so you can heal your inner child & liberate your children from the pain of the mother wound
Bethany Webster does profound work around healing the mother wound. The mother wound is the pain of being a woman passed down through generations of women in patriarchal cultures. And it includes the dysfunctional coping mechanisms that are used to process that pain.
What is the Mother Wound?
- Comparison: not feeling good enough
- Shame: consistent background sense that there is something wrong with you
- Attenuation: Feeling you must remain small in order to be loved
- Persistent sense of guilt for wanting more than you currently have
“In our patriarchal, male-dominated culture women are conditioned to think of themselves as “less-than” and not deserving or worthy. This feeling of less than has been internalized and passed down through countless generations of women.”
“For daughters growing up in a patriarchal culture, there is a sense of having to choose between being empowered and being loved.”
“Most daughters choose to be loved instead of empowered because there is an ominous sense that being fully actualized and empowered may cause a grave loss of love from important people in their lives, specifically their mothers. So women stay small and un-fulfilled, unconsciously passing the mother wound to the next generation.”
“As we heal the mother wound, the power dynamic is increasingly resolved becausewomen are no longer asking one another to stay small to ease their own pain. The pain can then be seen as legitimate, embraced, processed and integrated and ultimately transformedinto wisdom and power.”
