Gracias Madre & Her Three Sisters
The Divine Mother is said to live within our hearts – and not only do I recommend you go looking for her there, but as you do – say “Thank You” for the opportunity that life enables us to do so. Each time we say “Thank You” from our hearts we honor her and we honor our hearts. The natural response to “Thank You” is “You are Welcome.” So the Mother is constantly welcoming us home. Continually whispering “You are Welcome, in here. In my arms. In the love of your own heart.” Gratitude therefore, is the seed and soil to Love’s unending harvest.
And speaking of harvest, The Three Sisters refer to the three main agricultural crops of various Native American groups in North America: winter squash, maize (corn), and climbing beans. The three crops are planted intentionally next to one another and live and grow symbiotically. The maize provides a structure for the beans to climb, eliminating the need for poles. The beans provide the nitrogen to the soil that the other plants use, and the squash spreads along the ground, blocking the sunlight, helping prevent the establishment of weeds and if that wasn’t amazing enough, it also acts as a “living mulch”, creating a microclimate to retain moisture in the soil, and it’s prickly vine’s hairs help to deter pests. The Three Sisters exemplify that living together is our true nature AND nurtue.
