Dear Diana,

I am trying to help my mother for 25 years now but she still the same emotional and financial the same. she tries to hold on to us children through emotional blackmail telling us that one day we are not going to see her if she dies we will cry unconditional that the pain not going. Our lives me and my brothers and sister are not good to we try to survive we are in our 40’s and I do not understand why she does that. She separated from my father a 25 years ago and somehow she wants to blame on us and now that she 64 she thinks that one of us need to stay with her because she is our mother. Is that right we have being there for her all this years, we are tired now in be bullied all this year and the fear indirectly she put on us. We lost all the contact from the rest (extended family) to be true it is just me my brother and sister and husbands and our children from my side. Why is my mother acting like this?

Thank you

Carla

Dear Carla,

Your mother is acting from fear. She fears that she is “not good enough” and that she is not loveable. She fears being alone. The more she is focusing on this, the more it is becoming her reality. Ask the angels to surround your mother in compassion, love and respect. Reassure her that you do love her and will continue to see her. Remind her of her good qualities, thank her for all that she has done to make you the person you are today. Thank her for the good times that you had as a child and any good things that she did for you. As you do this and express your gratitude, the angels will bring more into your life to be grateful for and your gratitude will soften her.

With Blessings
