Why Social Media Age Spirituality Leaves Out Mothers

Social media is an amazing tool that can help us find our people, discover a plethora of knowledge, and engage with people from all around the world. It has given spiritual entrepreneurs a platform to spread light and help others find their purpose. While all of these things have aided in reducing the stigma around spirituality, it picture-perfect depiction tends to leave out some of the most enlightened souls…mothers.

Why Spirituality in Motherhood is Different

When all we have to compare our journey to is a glamorized version of meditation, retreats, or yoga poses on a beach, it can be hard not to feel less than or like we aren’t doing it right.

Because we hold so much space for our children and are reborn because of them, sometimes we are blindly navigating what this raw self-discovery looks like. Our meditation might look like a moment of stillness inside of a zoo, and our yoga might be done under 4-day leggings and some spit-up. It doesn’t make us any less spiritual.

Look, I know most of us would LOVE to go on 10-day retreats or partake in plant ceremonies in the middle of the rain forest, but sometimes as moms, that isn’t realistic. And that’s okay, too. That’s why this community of spiritual mamas is so important because we GET IT.

Finding Your Own Slice of Magic

Tuning out the comparison culture and tuning into what our soul needs to grow can help us cultivate a spiritual practice that serves us no matter how Instagram worthy it is. Don’t think that just because you aren’t surrounded by flowers, crystals, or are meditating on a cliffside, that your inner-work is any less powerful.

It is a beautiful time where mothers are starting to share the spiritual transformations that occur in motherhood. We are helping one another find tangible tools to help navigate this huge life responsibility and emerging awakening. The more we continue to shift the conversation, share our wisdom, and help other mamas connect to their highest selves, the more we can share what it actually looks like to be a spiritual woman who is also a mother.

Finding our own slice of magic, meaning what works for us in our life at this very moment to feed our soul, is how we can truly embody all these “spiritual experiences” we think we need (or at least have been told we need). Just remember, we can all pose for pictures and do things for the gram, but it’s showing up and actually doing the work every day that matters.
