What Mamas Need to Hear Based on the Enneagram

If you’re at all familiar with the Enneagram test, you probably know your number. Its current popularity is soaring as a means to understand yourself, although it’s rumored to be more than 4,000 years old originating from the Pythagorians’ sacred geometry work. But that’s a story for another time!

In the modern day, the Enneagram is used primarily as a personality test. But once you identify with a number, you realize it’s more like a “soul number”—a number that speaks to your traits, quirks, strengths, and weaknesses. A number that highlights your good...and not so good; a number that knows things you don't share with anyone. And it affirms there are others like you—you're really not crazy.

As a woman and mama, a weight was lifted when I figured out I’m a “four" through and through. The relief and peace I feel whenever I come across “four" directed material is unlike any assurance I can get from someone or even myself, at times. But it does more than reassure me—knowing my number supports my self-discovery and refinement. It shows me blindspots, yet offers clues on how to evolve given how I’m wired.

The Enneagram is really helpful in piecing together who you are so you may better navigate your role within various relationships...including the relationship with your littles. Thus, I’ve put together messaging directed to each Enneagram number that focuses on mothering. Mama, I want you to be seen—I desire you to see your uniqueness and champion it for the betterment of you and your littles. Hoping your number’s message resonates, seeps into your heart, and you feel known. And with being known, go love on your little the way only you can. Click on the resources tab to see yours.
