There are many goddesses; some walked the Earth at one point and others remained in the spiritual realm. Since there are so many goddesses and every woman is a goddess, three major questions would be, “what exactly is a goddess, what does a goddess do, and how can I connect with a goddess?” While in a previous post You Are A Triple Moon Goddess And Here’s Why, we looked at what stage we are at in life, this post is more related to which goddess we identify with and understand ourselves on a deep level.
A goddess is a female deity (divine being), who, in some cultures, is associated with Earth, motherhood, love, and the household. While in other cultures, a goddess also rules over war, death, destruction, and healing. A goddess is also a woman of extraordinary beauty and charm; or a greatly admired or adored woman. One of the ways I personally define a goddess is a woman who is 100% in her element and does great things in a graceful and loving way. With that being said, how do you define yourself as a goddess?
Furthermore, having studied goddesses for years, I have come to realize that all of the goddesses provide various services and tools to aid us in becoming the best goddess we can be throughout of lives. For example:
- Irish/Celtic goddess Maeve helps us to be strong and bring exactly what we need and want in our lives
- English goddess Guinevere helps us to focus on love especially if we are caught in a love triangle
- The Egyptian goddess Isis aids us to be balanced in all aspects of our lives and display leadership
- Chinese goddess Kuan Yin teaches us compassion and patience
- Yoruba goddess Yemaya aids in fertility
- And, many others such as Lakshmi for abundance, Athena for wisdom, Brigit for igniting the flame within us, Ishtar for boundaries.
In addition, when you want to connect with any of the goddesses, you need to do activities promotes relaxation, love, security, and trust.
- Ritual while taking a bath/shower
- Meditate just before bed
- A guided meditation
- A ritual: get a cup of tea/cocoa/coffee a blanket and read about the goddesses
Given what I have stated above, below are just some guidelines about how to tap into your divine goddess element and live like one each day.
Each goddess has a particular realm (sorceress/fairy/romance/justice/art) in which she works. What’s your realm?
Each goddess has an origin, such as Celtic, Yoruba, Aztec or Egyptian. What’s your origin?
Each goddess has a specialty (alchemy, compassion, a voice for the under-represented). What’s your specialty?
Each goddess has a goal; Kuan Yin decided to stay on Earth until everyone on Earth was healed. What’s your divine goal?
Each goddess has a symbol, Athena has an owl and Isis has an ankh. What’s your symbol?
Each goddess has a story explaining her purpose. What’s your story and purpose?
Each goddess has a dominant color and element association. What is your favorite color and what is your element (earth, air, water, fire)?
So, find your knack and be the goddess of it! Own it! Good at cooking? Be the goddess of baked goods! Good at providing advice? Be the goddess of unbiased advice! Good at partying? Be the party goddess! Whatever it is, own it and be the best at it because that’s where you shine and that’s what plays a part in making you the goddess of your domain!
