Voice of the Goddess
Sexuality, sensuality, conception, birth, transitions, the hearth and home, beauty, destruction, change, crops, protection, inspiration, harvesting, the sun and moon, water, fire, creating and death.
What do they all have in common?
There are goddesses intimately connected to these important aspects of our lives.
Yesterday I had an inspiration in relation to the goddesses. I decided that every chapter of my new weight loss book will begin with a tribute to a goddess appropriate to carrying out the work of that specific chapter. Each will have her own altar, correspondences and a creative project such as an amulet, that can be made in her honor.
Male deity will also play a role in these chapter headings. With several gods and male spirits leading off chapters, though the main emphasis will be on the goddesses.
I will be drawing each god and goddess in pen and ink.
(inside cover of my art journal)
The goddess has spoken and I must listen.
Her voice can be soft and muted. Sometimes her whispers are so ethereal that they get caught up in the wind and you wonder if she is still speaking to you at all. When she does, it is time to sit up and take notice.
She will guide you fearlessly into the unknown.
