THE MOTHER-DAUGHTER LEGACY

I've heard it three times now, from three different souces, so it MUST be true, daughters are meant to live out the drama of their mothers' subconscious, to implement their dreams.

Well, geez, that's scary!

I see it though, that's exactly what I am doing, and what an astrologer read in my chart, I am not only living out my dreams, but those of my mother and grandmother. My writing, my working with other women in community, to bring about greater good for women everywhere.

What will happen if I live out every last drama of my own subconscious?

What if I implement every last of my own dreams?

What will MY daughter do?

I hope to live long enough to see those questions answered for myself...

Wow, maybe she will get to really enjoy the ride...without all the angst. I hear you. Incredible what you are doing for all the women in your line!

Oh boy! If that first paragraph is true, things could get very interesting for me...
As for your daughter, she will be so free as to dream her own dreams. She will walk into such a wonderful legacy with you as her mom!

Jerri said...

She will grow wings and fly into her own dreams.

That would be SO great. Whatever comes of your work, the one thing I'm sure is that it's great karma for both you and your daughter and her daughter and so on and so on.

no! dear Carrie

what you heard is not true and I hope at least two more co-bloggers will concur with me and undo this possibly damaging message...

or maybe I'm making a fuss about nothing? maybe this latest post was meant to light and fun?

just in case...

your daughter should not be an accessory to your life...I don't like what your astrologer said, and especially for mothers like you, oh so strong and powerful…thinking this way can be a very dangerous path...so please let your daughter write the story of her own life and let her tell her unique story from her own point of view...give your daughter your unique brand of truth and wisdom but do not consciously or unconsciously destine her to live out your dramas, dreams or otherwise…dare her and allow her to blaze her own path and cheer her on with amazement!

"Children are driven, unconsciously, in a direction that is intended to compensate for everything that was left unfulfilled in the life of their parent."

~ Carl Jung

No exception!

If the reader will look carefully at what Ms. Link has written, it will be clear that she is, in fact, living her own life to the fullest in order to free her daughter...her efforts at knowing herself as well as becoming fully self realized and thus, conscious, is all she can do to truly free her daughter to "write her own story."

I got you, Link.

Nice work!!

You think we could start pronouncing Jennifer, Yennifer? As in Jung?

Could we try it for yust a little while and see how it goes?

Boy oh Boy...my daughter is going to have her work cut out for her, if I am catching your drift but I so totally don't get what you are going for here, and once I tried to really think the idea through, I ended up with a real honker of a headache so what I I realize is that she is really nothing like me and probably won't be (although your girl and my girl share the same name, age and ... yes, birth date...can you beleive that??) I really can't get myself all twisted up about her deal since I'm in the middle of my own deep and profound self realization stemming from my intricate and complex study of how I am one, morphed from two, being me, who became you. See?

Anywho...it all makes sense in this noggin....hope I wrote it clear enough for you all and of course, you my twin!!

Man, whoever thinks I'm Wanna Be, is out of their f-ing mind. She's a total NUT case and I'm not talking about Grandma's fruit cake.

Back At'cha said...

What are we talking about here? Daughters? Christmas presents? Mixed nuts? I'm totally confused?

holly said...

Every last dream, what an amazing thought. Can there be a last dream ... one dream grows another grows another ...

so maybe what's left for her is to dream anything and do all of it ... keep dreaming and keep achieving ... like her mama.

Life is a journy that never ends and with each new path with take a new one comes along, there is no way your daughter will have nothing as long as you just keep dreaming and moving along your own path, she will flourish as well.
