The Goddess Within – A 13 Moon Journey to Enlightenment
It is clear in ancient times, men feared what they could not understand, feel or share. Our blessed Mother Earth they could stand upon, fight for and rule over. Her natural rhythms, however they could not control. The Moon and it’s rhythm, symbolic of the flow of life that was a woman’s cycle was dis-guarded and their own calendars were created. With Christianity came the Great Father as if time began at that point. The Goddess that the tribes of old had worship since the beginning of time was no longer allowed without great threat to one’s well being. In controlling the worship of the Goddess they attacked her presence in all women. To be thought unclean during her natural cycle was to deny a woman her heritage as a part of something sacred. The blood of the Goddess flows eternal and as daughters of the Goddess we will align our cycles with mother Earth. An endless circle of birth life and death…
As we begin our journey with the Goddess, let me clarify this is not a fact-finding historic study. There are as many legends or myths of the Goddess as there are names for Her. Her people adapted Her to suit their needs of survival and legends were taught to the young, ever-changing with the changes of the land. We will focus more on the energies and the different Aspects of the Goddess. Her many roles in history will be the foundation of our search within for our own Devine Feminine. We are each the Goddess of our Kingdom. The insecurities, the fears, and the shadows are of our own makings by not living up to the strengths, joys and wisdom that are ours as women. Society has taught us our roles are supportive to men, but deep inside of every woman there is ancient knowledge that we are indeed unique in our own right. We are capable of deep emotions, love beyond ourselves and sacrifices that prove great strength. We are capable of vengeance that can only be matched by the wisdom we seek. We are the Maiden, Mother and Crone of time. The Earth is changing and our roles as women change with it . The healing begins within for when we are authentic and honor the Goddess we truly are, we honor the Goddess Mother Earth and Life itself.
