The Complicated Yet Unbreakable Mother-Daughter Bond
As Mother’s Day approaches, it might naturally lead us to examine our relationships with our mothers. Though Mother’s Day is seen as a celebration, it can be quite a difficult time for many. Whether you have lost your mom or mother figure, whether you were never very close to your mom, whether you’ve had a more recent falling out, or whether your own dreams of becoming a mother never came to fruition, your experience is valid.
It’s possible to view Mother’s Day as a time of reflection in addition to celebration. It may even be healthier to do so. Even if you see others celebrating their mothers on social media or in real life, remember that relationships are always more complicated than they appear in public. Instagram and other social media are just highlight reels. The pain, the sadness, the frustration is typically hidden.
It’s important to talk about Mother’s Day and motherhood in an honest way. It may be excruciating to do so, like getting a tooth pulled without a painkiller. But oftentimes painful things are also the most rewarding in the end.
When exploring the mother-daughter bond, it helps to acknowledge how complicated it can be, in addition to being one of the strongest family bonds. Even science backs this up. A study in the Journal of Neuroscience found that mothers and daughters are more likely to relate to each other emotionally, and understand each other more deeply, than other parent-child relationships. The part of the brain that regulates emotions is similar in mothers and daughters, which the study found while examining why mood disorders are more commonly passed down from mothers to daughters.
This strong, scientifically-backed connection between mothers and daughters is significant. It shows that mothers and daughters are irrevocably bound together in profound ways. No matter what, they will always have this connection that will see them through hardships and obstacles.
Whether you are gifting your mother or your daughter this Mother’s Day, make it a gift that will honor who they are as individuals. Our iconic Goddess Collection features strong women of history and myth, whose energy and power can ignite your own. If you’re gifting someone who needs to tap into their own power and realize how amazing she is, the Joan of Arc Signet Ring is the perfect place to start. Medusa, Athena, The Morrigan, Pachamama (Mother Earth), and Nefertiti will also leave mom in awe. You can also gift one to your mom and one to yourself with our Mini + Me sets, which feature several Goddesses (including Joan of Arc, Athena, Artemis, Aphrodite, and Medusa) in both large pendant and mini pendant sizes.
Affirmations is another collection that empowers and inspires. When you gift one of our gorgeous Affirmations Necklaces, you imbue the giftee with a sense of meaning and strength. Remind your mother that she is a Goddess of immense power and courage. Affirmations allow the wearer to realize and reaffirm her own unique capabilities and authority.
Sometimes our mothers need reassurance in their energy fields. With one of our Aura Necklaces, you can promote higher vibrational activity as they align their chakras to promote positivity, healing, strength, and power. Allow your mother to cleanse her spiritual energy field so she can access and connect to her higher self.
There’s really no greater gift than instilling confidence and good morale in the person you love. For a gift that will always affirm mom’s special spirit, consider the Woman Power Necklace. This necklace is part of the Amulet Collection, which also features other exceptional pieces that speak to an individual’s uniqueness. Whether it’s the Raised Fist or the Evil Eye, each piece attracts good energy and promotes abundance.
The Butterfly Collection is yet another inspired choice for gifting. A symbol of profound transformation and renewal, the butterfly sparks the desire to change and evolve into something stronger and better. Let your mom or daughter know that they are always removing old layers to uncover their best selves when you gift them a Butterfly earring set, Enamel butterfly ring, or Butterfly necklace in gold vermeil.
When you give the gift of Awe, you tell your loved one that they in turn leave you in awe.
