A Mother’s Day Ritual To Honor Gaia

Mother’s Day can be a hard day for many women. Not every woman embraces or enjoys Mother’s Day. Disappointment around days like Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day occurs when outcomes don’t match expectations, and the greater the disparity, the greater the disappointment.
Some women:
  • Consider it to be a fabricated holiday.
  • Don’t have children and/or their mom has passed.
  • Are estranged from their children and/or mother.
  • Feel awful when their children forget Mother’s Day all together.
  • Just feel PRESSURE because their personal situation with their own mom sucks or is non existent.

Life Is Complicated At Times

Maybe you never knew your mother, or she’s transitioned to the spirit realm, or she was (or still is) abusive and cold… maybe you have more than one mother, or you had a falling out with your mother and/or children/child and still have yet to mend fences…
Any of these complicated and very common situations can mess with your emotions and make you totally DESPISE Mother’s Day.

Let’s Reframe Mother’s Day!

I believe that life is too short to focus on what brings sadness, disappointment or stress, SO I’d like to create a re-frame for Mother’s Day.
I suggest that if Mother’s Day triggers you in any way my friend, shift your focus completely and celebrate Gaia – your primordial mother.
Like many other holidays that have been commercialized in modern times, Mother’s Day has centuries-old roots. Cultures around the world celebrated (and still do) the mother goddess as a representative of nurturing and the giver of all life. 
In Greek mythology, Gaia is the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess. She is the mother of Uranus (the sky), from whose sexual union she bore the Titans and the Cyclopes (themselves parents of many of the Olympian gods) and the Giants, and of Pontus (the sea), from whose union she bore the primordial sea gods. Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Terra.

A Mother’s Day Ritual To Honor Gaia

I believe ritual is a way of bringing meaning to you life and ritual can be as simple or as fancy as you’d like.
My style of sacred practice and teaching is practical and effective. I don’t have the time nor the bandwidth most of the time to dive deep into formal ritual, so I have learned to keep things simple and powerful. There are two things to keep in mind:
  1. Magic is a personal practice and an art… it has to feel right to you; in your body and in your soul.
  2. White is an all purpose color for magic, so when in doubt – choose white!
So here is my first suggestion – create an altar outside in nature, put a representation of Mother Earth or Gaia on the altar, add flowers, light a candle or candles (I suggest the colors green, light pink and or white), burn some incense, ground and center barefoot with your feet touching Mama Earth,  place your hands over your heart, and recite the affirmation.
Note: You can purchase a statue of Gaia like the one in the photo – here.
Now, if creating an altar is not practical for you – simply go outside, take your shoes off and touch Mama Earth, take a few rounds of breath, and recite the affirmation below and allow love and gratitude to vibrate in your heart space the entire day.
I came across he following affirmation online while doing research. I modified it slightly. Please feel free to modify the affirmation to better fit your taste and needs. It’s not the words we say as much as the intention behind the words we say, so keep your words in alignment with your truth – always.


I honor Mother Earth. Gaia.

You nurture, give, and love unconditionally. Never judge. Every person, animal and plant. Every day.

Each cell of our body comes from the very clay of you, Gaia, and it is to that our bodies return as we transition in vibration. You birthed our physical form, and we return back to you when we finish this journey.

Thank you Gaia for your many gifts of healing, love, and support.
