But how can you, a real woman

living in a modern world

ever manage to get in touch with your inner goddess?

Developing Your Goddess Potential

Activating your inner goddess can be as simple as
setting aside a little time for yourself...time to think, take a
leisurely soak in the tub, or a stroll through the park.
  What matters most is that you invoke your goddess by
honoring your self, by accepting and meeting your own needs.

Activating The Goddesses Within

Being a woman is a delicate and tricky balancing act. Navigating the many roles and transitions we face is not an easy task, especially as we strive for the authenticity of remaining true to our essential character, our personal
goddess types.


All the goddesses are present as potentials in the psyches of every woman.  Your personal goddess type expresses your preferred or dominant way of functioning in the world . . . the one that is most natural or comfortable for you to use in your daily life.

Most of us call upon some of the other goddesses as well, usually only in special situations and, therefore, less frequently.  Though when a goddess archetype is seldom used, it may remain underdeveloped.  Then  the archetype may function less satisfactorily than we would like, leaving us feeling "off-center" and somewhat stressed.

 


There is usually one goddess in our personality that is actually rejected or disowned.  When this goddesses makes her presence felt we are uncomfortable and find the experience stressful.  This "forgotten" goddess (referred to as the "shadow" in Jungian psychology) rarely appears in our consciousness, often showing up only in our dreams. 

 

The saying "We are what we do" (or think) best expresses how a goddess can be activated (energized or developed). By consciously focusing our thoughts or actions on the mental images of a specific goddess, we invite her to be present. The activated goddess brings her own particular strengths into our personal repertoire, enabling us to be more flexible and adaptable in response to life's varied and unpredictable demands.
 


No matter what activity you're engaged in you can make it a goddess moment. Be mindful of the goddess who stands in the shadows, appreciating your endeavor because it was once her own.

Arranging a vase of roses? Ask  Hera where you should  put the white one.

Walking in the woods?  Share the silence with Artemis by simply bringing her to mind as you revel in the beauty of the trees.

Adapting a recipe to feed a crowd at your holiday feast? Hestia will be there to be sure you get it just right.

Enjoying a Ladies' Night Out at the Bingo/font> parlor? For an uproariously good time invite the goddess Bast to join your  table!

Seeking the energies of a goddess type
is a powerful way to strengthen and
honor the goddess in you.

 

In the collection of each goddess appearing below you will find activities and  meditations
based on her goddess myths, actions you can take that honor and activate
that individual goddess and invoke her supportive presence in your life.
