Sometimes we just need a little extra help. When there are too many places for us to be at one time, when we are over-committed and under-supported, it may be time to call in Divine Goddess energy.
The “Great Goddess” goes by many names. Every culture knows the Great Goddess and the many other Goddess helpers that are derived from her. We can call on any one of them to assist us when we are in need of help or lacking a necessary skill or talent to navigate a particular situation.
The badass goddesses such as Durga, Kali, or Pele are known for their fierce “warrior-ess” abilities and can help break down, fend off, or otherwise dissolve obstacles that are in your way.
(Many of the demons we face are internal and require us to dismantle our own ego before we can begin to co-create or rebuild our next adventure or masterpiece.)
Perhaps organization and mental acuity is what you seek. Athena or Saraswati might lend you their expertise. Athena came from Zeus’s head, born in full armor with a book in one hand and a sword in the other. She embodies logic, strategy, and executive ferocity. The Goddess Saraswati is all about communication, the word, writing, and has the gift of gab as well as music.
Maybe it’s love or beauty or success and abundance you’re after. In this case Aphrodite or Lakshmi are powerful allies.
When conjured and held fervently in your mind and in your meditations, these goddesses can help bring about transformational change.
The subconscious mind does not know the difference between what’s real or imagined, plus it can tap into the collective consciousness, sometimes called the superconscious, where these lovely goddesses reside. This is what some of the greatest minds and geniuses have been doing forever, so conjuring your Goddess really isn’t as far-fetched of an idea as it sounds.
Using imagination and intuition is an under-utilized skill. Calling in a goddess is a natural resource and is available to you at any moment. Everyone needs a little help sometimes!
There are many great books on this subject, and I’ve listed a few of them below. But by far my favorite way to access the goddesses is with the Goddess Power Oracle Deck by Colette Baron Reid. I rely on this deck in my programs to help get women started using their intuition and learning about the goddesses. It’s fun and powerful!
May you find your Gorgeously Healthy Goddess,
