My Mom was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. This diagnosis came very soon after being told that her lung cancer was gone. What I want to share with you, is not a story about her cancer, it is a story about unconditional love and communication.
Yesterday, I visited my Mom, she wanted to speak to me in person. I didn’t really know what she wanted to say, but I had a pretty good idea. My Mom told me how much I meant to her, how much she cared about me and asked me to not forget her. Then at one point I moved closer and held her hand. My Mom looked me directly in the eyes and said she loved me and I said that I loved her. For the first time in my life, I felt the energy of unconditional love. I felt it with my heart and all my being. I said “I Love You” to my Mom in a way that I have never said it to her or anyone before. What was amazing was how those three words could convey everything that needed to be said in that moment. It was an emotional and beautiful experience.
After leaving, I was driving and thinking. Amongst all the thoughts I was having, I realized how grateful I was to know that regardless of outcome, I feel like there will be nothing left unsaid between my Mom and I. I realized that anything that needed to be said was talked about in the past. There was a time when it would have been very difficult to say “I Love You” to my Mom and truly mean it.
My training as a Life Coach has brought me so much healing and fulfillment in all of my relationships. I never expected that the tools of coaching would have such an impact. After seeing my Mom, I realize why teaching communication and sharing the tools of coaching is so important to me. I believe that the energy of unresolved conflict and words not shared, live in our bodies and that we can begin to heal ourselves, by healing our relationships. I thank you for reading this and ask, that rather than contacting me or sending me your love & thoughts. Take a moment to connect with someone in your life. As the video I share below says “I want to see the world united….learn to live as one” This starts with our ability to communicate in all of our relationships.
I Love You Mom!
