Tapping into goddess energy is one way to ensure you get through every day with your integrity intact. The ancient goddesses were honoured for several reasons – for an abundant harvest, to maintain the family and home safe, or to escort spirits safely into the after-life to mention a few. In this modern era, however, it is not always practical to pray in a moonlit forest temple or to burn bonfires through an outside springtime orgy.
So how else can a modern gal reconnect with her goddess energy? Simple. By selecting to be yourself and making decisions with intention. Every action, thought, projection of self, and treatment of others is a manifestation of the goddess within. There are seven aspects of self which ought to be considered to meet a balanced and enriching lifestyle. Follow these tips to live every day to become goddess.
Being goddess is all about being in tune with oneself, being able to recognise threatening circumstances and react rationally and calmly. Trust your intuition and act with confidence. Be mindful of the effect of others’ moods and needs and remain balanced in times of duress. Manifest security and a lively existence by keeping your feet firmly on the floor, literally.
Creatively, sexually and emotionally, connect with others through feeling, desire, sensation and motion. Learn how to accept change gracefully and do not be afraid to allow your depth of feelings show. Moreover, a poverty consciousness is only going to serve to deny what you deserve. Abundance is great, (greed isn’t ), whether it be material, esoteric, psychological or otherwise. Ask for what you need and deserve, and providing it is not for selfish reasons, give yourself permission to get it.
Being goddess is more than simply alabaster skin and an Elle McPherson body. Apart from round abdomens and swinging breasts, common features of ancient goddesses include uncompromising strength, justice and compassion. Spend some time working out who you are, who you want to be, then honouring the actual you at the picture you present to everybody you meet. Write your own eulogy then circle the five main elements that you would want people to remember you by. Then, live according to those attributes to make them a habit.
If you do not love yourself, then do not expect others too . If you allow others treat you poorly, you’re telling your inner mind that you don’t deserve better. The contemporary goddess gal never, actually allows herself to take second best. Rally your personal power and self-respect and learn how to say words such as “No” and “Enough.” Above all, mean what you say! On the opposite side of this coin, give compliments freely, for if’what goes around comes around’ you will enjoy getting plenty in return.
What you say is what you get. Expressions like, “I’ll never be able to get over this barrier,” will attest in precisely how you describe. Rather than facing and overcoming your fears, you will stay stagnant, bashing your head against the brick wall you say can not be knocked down. Change your language habits to dispel negatives and adopt positives. Say”I can do it,” and next thing you know, you’ll be leaping brick walls in a single jump.
Get over trivial issues and start your vision to see the Big Picture. If you’re consumed in trivial worries, they’re probably a diversion mechanism to keep you out of what it is you actually need. If you had three months left to live, do you really care about your colour of lipstick, updating your cell phone, or getting the best table at the hottest restaurant in town? It’s your responsibility to prioritise what the important things are. Make a list of your dreams for another week, year, and/or decade. Circle one thing on every listing and commit to make it happen, 1 step at a time.
See yourself as a second organism in the ways of earth, both in the bodily and non-physical airplanes, at the present and the future. Disconnecting with the world every now and then can be healthy if it allows you to travel to a spaceless, timeless place of knowledge, wisdom, understanding and spiritual relationship. To revitalise flagging energy levels, practice meditation and yoga when possible. Time poor? Take the telephone off the hook and power-rest for five minutes – this time-out yourself can be just as refreshing. Nowadays, we’re permitted to build whatever life we want for ourselves, no matter a damaging past, amount of education, or social conditioning. It simply requires a choice to live life with intention, to make conscious decisions in all aspects of your life which will permit you to respect the goddess within – yourself.
