There’s no getting around it. If you have a mother (and we all do!), issues comes up. But these mother-daughter relationship issues might show up in your life in surprising ways.
In this video, I share why that is, plus a technique to help you start to clear your issues with your own mother. (Plus, see the photo of the 4 generations of mothers and daughters in my family at the end of this post!)
Who pushes your emotional buttons the most?
I’m grateful to have good relationships with my children. But we’re all still human, so even we can have our moments (yes, really!). It’s part of the beauty of being in relationship with another person.
Even if you think you had an almost-perfect mother, you’d still find yourself bumping up against some emotional issues.
Because other people are a mirror for us, to reflect back to us what is really going on within ourselves—and what is ready to be healed and released.
Watch the video and find out how my daughter Anne and I approach mother-daughter issues whenever our emotional buttons get pushed—and where those triggers really come from.

“Are you my mother?”
Whenever you notice your emotional buttons being pushed by someone, pay attention. It may be showing you that you’re still holding some baggage from your childhood that is actually related to a parent.
Doing the technique I shared in the video helps you to get in touch with your emotional self so you can clear what is showing up for you.
When other people get a rise out of you in such a way that makes you fee like a little kid again, pause and gain some perspective. You can tell yourself: “[Name of person] is not my mother.”
Then dig deeper and ask yourself: Is this person the same Energy Type as my mother (or daughter, or close family member)? Is this person reflecting some kind of behavior that I associate with my mother?
Know how to be a parent to your own true nature
I encourage you to my latest book, The Child Whisperer, and understand the 4 Types of children. Knowing which Type you are is extremely healing for adults, so you can learn how to better support your unmet childhood needs now as an adult.
God bless you,
