What is A Goddess

A goddess is a woman who emerges from deep within herself…she is a woman who has honestly explored her darkness and learned to celebrate her light.

She is a woman who is able to fall in love with the magnificent possibilities within her. She is a woman who knows of the magic and mysterious places inside her, the sacred places that can nurture her soul and make her whole.  She is a woman who radiates light. She is magnetic. She walks into a room and male and female alike feel her presence. She has power and softness at the same time.

She has powerful sexual energy that’s not dependent on physical looks. She has a body that she adores and it shows by the way she comfortably lives and moves in it. She cherishes beauty, light and love.

She is a mother to all children. She flows with life in effortless grace. She can heal with a look or a touch of the hand. She is fiercely sensual and fearlessly erotic and engages in sex as her way to share with another in touching the divine. She is compassion and wisdom.

She is seeker of Truth and cares deeply about something bigger than herself. She is a woman who knows that her purpose in life is to reach higher and rule with love. She is woman in love with love.

She knows that joy is her destiny and embracing it and sharing it with others to heal wounds. She is a woman who has come to know that her partner is as tender, lost, and frightened as she has been at times. She has come to understand the scars of the boy in him and knows that together, love can be the relief, the healing of their wounds.

She is a woman who can accept herself as she is. She can accept another as they are. She is able to forgive her mistakes and not feel threatened by another’s even when attacked. She is a woman who can ask for help when she needs it or give help when asked. She respects boundaries, hers and another’s.

She can see God in another’s eyes. She can see God in her own. She can see God in every life situation. She is woman who takes responsibility for everything she creates in her life. She is a woman who is totally supportive and giving. She is a Goddess’… (Original Author Unknown)

People are often asking me what it is I mean by a Goddess. It’s is a word that is tossed around there days. To sell razors, movies and lipgloss. It’s used as a sexualisation. As and objectification without the whole. It’s sometimes used in traditional empowerment to embody an idea of a woman who is projecting a false veneer of confidence through the mind and the body only.  It’s used in mytholgy and mystical arechetypal work. I even shied away from using this word in my work to begin with as it seemed so cliched.

And then a fellow wayshower shared this quote with me and I was reminded why I continue to refer to the goddess – because the woman described above is accessable to us all – she is your goddess within and she is stronger in her softness, more powerful in her vulnerabiliity, more magnetic in her mystery than anything else you have ever known.
