Goddess worship and the divine feminine have resurfaced again recently because the world needs a reboot. The darker masculine has taken precedence for long enough, and it’s caused us all a lot of grief. While it’s true that we all have both masculine and feminine energies, which are equally important, it is an exalted state of the masculine that needs to come forward now, and it is the feminine that must do the calling out. This is the yin and yang balance. One cannot exist without the other.
The Dalai Lama believes it is western women who will save the world. I don’t think it is western women alone, but women who are in a position to draw upon their feminine power and facilitate this balance. Cheers to the powerful women and men in touch with their feminine strengths!
Goddesses to the rescue!
We may not always be aware of it consciously, but we are all living under the influence of one archetype or another. Some of the archetypes that we’ve adopted (many formed in childhood) have characteristics and personalities that are quite helpful — or perhaps not at all.
In the last talk that I recently gave at the Gorgeously Healthy Goddess Summit, I talked about Goddess archetypes. I hope you were able to listen to it. Spoiler alert: I give a guided meditation toward the end. You can listen to it here if you want to.
The Goddess Archetype offers a brilliant pool of archetypes for us to choose from, each with various skills, talents, and attributes that can help us in times of need or generally with some aspect of our ego that we are working on.
In my talk I highlight five particular Goddesses that are useful. However, there are many, many others to choose from depending on what it is YOU need or are looking for and also depending on where you are in your own process. The other important thing to consider is any shadow archetypes that are active and have been triggered lately (victim, abandoned child, perfectionist, judge/critic, rescuer, etc.).
This is a clue that maybe a healthier, stronger archetype is needed to help you accept and dial down the shadow one. We don’t need to get rid of it; just acknowledge it and bring it to light.
Which Goddess speaks to you now?
I’m really excited to launch and share our newest Goddess Quiz for you to try.
As always, I am sending you a big Goddess whoosh of love and positive juju!
