The word ‘Goddess’ seems to have recently become a buzzword. In the 1950’s only those immortalised on the silver screen such as Marlena Dietrich & Marilyn Monroe were referred to as ‘Screen Goddesses’ but now Goddesses seem to be popping out at us from every small screen & magazine to sell us shavers, gym equipment, yoga pants & aromatherapy kits.
So what do these mortal women have that qualifies their status as modern day Goddesses and what can the rest of us do to become one?
In a nutshell, a modern day Goddess as a woman who sees & honours all aspects of her self as natural & therefore perfect & sacred.
(Author’s Note: that does include spontaneous burping & farting!)
Yes, any woman can shine with liberated self-acceptance & vitality when she chooses to value herself as a unique expression of divine life force, instead of trying to become the perfect woman she thinks everyone else wants her to be. Yes! Thankfully, the days of taking a painkiller & lying down in overwhelm are over!
OUTGROWING THE IDEAL OF ‘THE PERFECT WOMAN’
To make the transition into a fully-fledged Goddess we must each realise there is no such thing as the perfect woman. I would also like to point out that your idea of the perfect woman is not necessarily the same as mine. For instance, depending on which feminine archetype is ruling you, you may aspire to be a tall leggy blonde, a perfect Mother or a career superwoman…but none of these ideals will bring happiness if they are not balanced by your other feminine aspects that together comprise your psyche.
By understanding and empowering all of our feminine archetypes, we make more informed choices and less drama which are the key ingredients to manifesting a more fulfilling, sustainable & balanced life.
SO HOW DOES AN INNER GODDESS MAKEOVER WORK?
Each Goddess aspect within our psyche governs a chakra (these are the 7 main energy centres located within our bodies). As we become aware of how to express the positive traits of each feminine aspect we start to shine with confidence in all areas of our life.
This is the process that literally amplifies our wattage, that being the light of our uninhibited soul which attracts people to us like moths to a flame! This is why Aphrodite’s beauty secret was said to be her golden glow.
