Mother Nurturer Thrive Factor
Welcome to episode 87 of the Law of Effortlessness, with your Amazon Best Selling Author and #businessyoda Shannon Bush. In this solo episode, Shannon talks to us about the Mother Nurturer Archetype and how the archetype is not necessarily about being a literal mother of children-its about nourishing and nurturing those she considers to be her family. Mother Nurturers love to feed their family and will endeavor to make everyone feel loved and cared for, welcoming people into her fold like they are family.Mother Nurturers, remember though your greatest treasure and lessons are in self-nourishment.
Today Shannon is joined by two guests, Lyn Uniewicz from The Gifting Pot (all about giving!) and Tracy O’Meara Smith a Bowen Therapist from Silverdale.
In the first interview, Lyn shares her business, the Gifting Pot, a boutique gifting business. Sharing how she met Shannon through a friend, and how she did her archetype profile with Shannon. She identifies the four archetype that she identifies with Queen Ruler, Inspirer Believer, Mother Nurturer, and the Mediator Diplomat. Lynn tells us how she felt when she learned about her Mother Nurturer Archetype and identifies the strengths that come with being a Mother Nurturer, as well as some of the challenges.
We’re joined by Bowen Therapist Tracey O’Meara Smith from Silverdale in part two of this episode, who identifies as a Mother Nurturer, Inspirer Believer, Shape Shift Alchemist and Advocate Rescuer. Tracey shares how liberating it was to embrace the wisdom of her Mother Nurturer and allow this side herself to come to the fore. Tracey shares how she fat out rejected the Mother Nurturer initially but came to see the bigger picture and how shehe needed to come into her own authenticity and voice. Shannon asks Tracey how this shows up in her business, and Tracey shares how she had to learn that not everyone is ready for everything you have to give, andthat having a level of detachment from what happens in her therapy room is never about her personally, but about someone else and gives her clients the room to find and spread their own wings.
