The Goddess

Our worst fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” ~Marianne Williamson

Imagine a woman…a woman in touch with her feminine powers, sure of her wise self, ready to love, laugh, and to live, a woman in tune with her inner goddess. A goddess is a mortal (of course), so she'll make her share of mistakes. However, she will embody and embrace her own unique characteristics and mindsets most of the time. I would love the opportunity to walk you through your journey into surrendering to the goddess that is already within you. She is there inside you with all her wisdom and illumination. I invite you to be a beautiful, courageous and radiant feminine soul filled with love and compassion for the amazing feminine being you are.

I know it can be difficult as women to think of our femininity as goddess like. We think of a goddess and visualize perfect beauty, sensuousness and many things that are beyond realistic in nature. We measure ourselves by the myths and perhaps even our own perceived stories that did not have an ending we expected. I can tell you these are not the characteristics of our inner goddess; they are far from all the things that hinder our self-compassion and zest for life.

Breathe, take a deep goddess breath in with all your inner beauty and wisdom, and breathe out all those things you tell yourself you should be ... And so we begin.

• A goddess is continually pregnant with possibilities and gives birth to her ideas and dreams. She will consciously create her ideal life and lives according to her own definition of happiness. She knows what she wants, sets fulfilling purposes, and has the courage to follow through.

• A goddess is sensual and seductive and relies on and trusts her intuition. She has learned how to tap into this source at will. In other words, she's learned the skill of getting her thinking out of her head and into her body. She allows her senses to lead her and inquires within for her truth to guide her. She views her body as sacred. She is comfortable with her sexuality, enjoys pleasure in all its forms without self- judgment, guilt or shame. She is directly connected to and in sync with the natural cycles of nature.

• A goddess is compassionate and forgiving with herself. She is fully aware that her body is her temple. She gets enough rest and gives her body the right fuel by deeply breathing fresh air, eating correctly, and drinking enough water. She knows what she needs to be at her best and is sure to feed her body and her soul.

• A goddess is committed to nurturing nature. She knows the art of healing. She cares about all aspects that touch her own and other people's lives ... she thinks earthly. She works towards peace and understanding; whether on a large scale or simply with her loved ones and closest friends. She contributes to the energy of nature and teaches others to do so too.

I challenge you to take a moment each day to find your spirit, your inner /outer wise goddess, and ask her what she needs. Does she need a walk along the beach, a dance/paddle/spin/run/ session, a bubble bath and candles, sparkling water or a simple hug? Whatever your spirit reveals to you, listen and accept with permission. Our inner wise goddess knows what is best for us, even when we don’t.

A Goddess Mantra:

Today I welcome my spirit, intuition, inner guide, inner wisdom and inner Goddess to lead the way and show up everywhere and in every way I need her.
