The Parentified Daughter with Bethany Webster

‘One of the many manifestations of the mother wound is the pattern of the “parentified daughter.’
Bethany Webster

A simple definition of a parentified daughter is when a daughter plays the role of mother for her own mother; the roles are reversed.

Often a parentified daughter must grow up very fast and loses the chance to be a child, as she is expected to manage the emotional and/or physical needs of her mother and/or father.’

This is Part 2 of the Healing The Mother Wound series that Bethany and I recorded together.

We discuss Bethany’s article ‘Parentified Daughters as Female Leaders; Keys To Your Emergence‘ how to take steps to heal this and what it can mean for us as we emerge.

I hope it’s useful for you. I’d love to know your thoughts, reflections, insights after reading.

Through oceans of time, women have looked outside of ourselves for their spiritual path and autonomy over our own bodies. However, there IS a movement of consciousness that wants to redress this imbalance. In order to actualise this, we must make the changes within and take responsibility for our own body, empowerment, and evolution.

A Woman’s Seat of Power Is Her Womb

A woman’s power source has always been with The Great Mother. It is untamed, free, wild & uninhibited, both from social and moral conditioning. Throughout history, mankind has sought to sever this connection because it is beyond rational explanation.
