"I have called on the Goddess and found her within myself"
- Marion Zimmer Bradley
What is Goddess energy?
Within each of us is the Divine feminine energy that is Goddess energy. It is one half of the whole and counterbalanced by Divine masculine energy.
Divine feminine energy is represented by yin, Gaia, mother nature, the moon (and other forms) and is linked to the element of water.
We all have Divine feminine and masculine energy and apply those energies at different stages.
What unclaimed Goddess power looks like
Feeling disempowered amongst masculine energy is a tell-tale sign of unclaimed Goddess power. This can be manifested as needless apologising or viewing a feminine attribute as a disability.
Finding and claiming your inner Goddess power brings freedom from this.
How to find your Goddess energy
If you have ever felt truly comfortable in your own skin, experienced a heightened connection to mother nature, or felt love for people you didn’t even know – you have met your inner Goddess.
So how can you meet your inner Goddess more often?
Do more of what makes you feel love and acceptance for yourself
Do the people around you make you feel good about yourself? What is your self-talk like? Have you got time carved out for self-care?
Spend some sacred time in nature
Feeling a strong connection to mother nature needs quality time spent with Her. What makes this time sacred is your intention and attention.
Practise unconditional love
Cultivating Goddess energy is a practice in the art of unconditional love. You can practise this by meditating on the thought that all beings are different expressions of the One, and by holding a loving intention for all without wanting anything in return.
Athena Perrakis Ph. D. has published The Book of Rituals and Blessings which has a lovely invocation for becoming the Mother, amongst a wealth of rituals and blessings for bringing sacredness into every day life.
