Getting to Know Your Inner GODDESS
In ancient Greece there were many specially chosen Goddesses that were worshipped and revered for their beauty and boldness. To name a few -Aphrodite, Athena, Artemis, Demeter, and Persephone - each with a domain to oversee. Goddesses reigned over relationships. Highly spirited, they could be quite brutal if crossed and were not averse to seeking revenge if wronged.
In the 21st century, the idea of a Goddess is becoming more universally accepted, with the added benefit that every woman has the right to be a Goddess in her own world.
A modern-day Goddess knows that she is part of God/Source/All that Is. She is comfortable with her I Am. She has successfully integrated yin and yang, feminine and masculine energies. She embodies strength, sex appeal, and intelligence. She gracefully walks her path with passion, purpose, and possibility. She isn't above others but it very much at peace with herself and values herself to the extent that she designs her own destiny, balancing love, work, and play beautifully.
She is a woman who has a presence, who radiates an inner light that can sometimes attract and sometimes intimidate others. Above all, she is who she is and doesn't make apologies for it. Why would she? A Goddess of the 21st century is a wonderful, warm, and loving human being striving to evolve and grow while on her life's journey.
A Goddess is an alluring, aware, authentic, action-oriented, compasionate, centered and allowing woman in touch with her divinity.
