There is a Goddess within you waiting to emerge. She gently whispers to you, urging you to stop doing, striving and working, and start being, receiving and resting. While the male way is to give, do and pour outward, the feminine way is to be, attract and receive. There is probably no better or more beautiful metaphor for this than the conception of a baby – the male giving, the female receiving, and the union creating a whole new life.
That said, perhaps for far too long, we have been conditioned into a way of life that emphasizes the male principles without balancing them with the necessary Divine Feminine values. In order to live well- rounded and fulfilling lives, we need to honour the gifts of both the sacred male and female. Goddesses across all cultures and times have represented the essential feminine qualities needed to balance the male qualities so we can heal, grow and flourish in every part of our lives. While they inspire endless ways to live more harmoniously, here are five things you can do to tap into the gifts of the Goddess:
1. Create a Sacred Space
Imagine a little sanctuary where you can go after (or better yet, in between) the busyness of your day to re-center and replenish – doesn’t that sound just divine? Having a room, or even a small nook or corner, as your personal sacred space is a powerful way to connect with your goddess self every day. Start by finding a clean, cozy spot in your home where you can have some privacy, even if you need to put a “Do Not Disturb” sign up when in use.
Next, turn this spot into your private temple by adding a symbol of something spiritual (perhaps a goddess picture or statue), candles, incense, a water fountain, crystals, plants and flowers, or anything that will make this area a special and sacred space where you can meditate, journal, pray, daydream, reflect, nurture yourself, have a soothing cup of tea, or take some time to just be.
