The indigenous shaman women taught that there are two different mother energies that exist on earth, one called the Rainbow Mother and the other Great Nurturing Mother. Each mother has her opposite face. The dark side of Rainbow Mother is Crazy Woman and the dark side of a Nurturing Mother is Death Mother. Once a person understands what is their core mother energy, they are able to know why they behave the way they do and how they can heal and strengthen certain aspects of themselves. This also helps them understanding why others behave the way they do.
