In my work as a spiritual intuitive, I often see clients who are feeling out of balance within themselves and their place in the world. They know something is missing, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is. Part of my calling within my work as a spiritual advisor and teacher is to help people find the balance they are seeking and many times that is accomplished by introducing them to the Sacred Feminine, Mother Goddess. Most of us are brought up with Father God, but few of us are brought up to recognize our Divine Mother. This can leave us feeling out of balance. Our Sacred self is connected to God who truly cannot be defined by gender, but God is the energy of creation and that energy manifests as both masculine and feminine.
The idea of a feminine God is not new. Looking back at ancient cultures, we see Mother Goddess and although She was suppressed by those seeking power over women, Her energy is returning. She is a nurturing, matriarchal presence that balances out the patriarchal energy that has dominated for so long. This isn’t about denying the masculine to replace it with the feminine. This is about marrying the two so that our world is in balance and we are in balance within ourselves. This is harmony.
God is life. Goddess is the form life takes. She is our Mother earth. She is crystals and oceans and flowers and herbs. She is the moon, and stars, and stone, She is fairies and elementals. If you have ever felt the turn of the seasons, you have felt Her. If you have ever been drawn to the magic and mystery of lost lands and ancient ceremony, you have been drawn to Her. She is earth, air, fire, and water. She is creation’s Yin to creation’s Yang. Without her, we cannot exist.
The Goddess is represented in you: Your body is earth, your breath is air, your blood is water, your life force is fire. We have only to look within ourselves to find our Divine Mother. And she lives in the land. This is why we say “Mother” earth. The incredibly popular movie “Avatar” beautifully engages this concept of a feminine God who resides in all of life and connects all of life. This concept reaching popular culture is just one of the signs that the Goddess is making Her presence known once again.
To connect with Her, you merely have to acknowledge Her. You can simply stand with your bare feet upon the earth. You can use essential oils, put fresh flowers in your home, and connect with the cycles of the moon. As you invite the Goddess into your life, you will feel the great balance occur. You will feel the shift that brings harmony and grace. She is powerful and transformational and She can guide you to that which you seek. She is so often the “missing link” on our spiritual journey, but She is ever present. And with both our masculine and feminine energies balanced, we find God everywhere within ourselves, our world and the world of spirit.
I work very closely with Archangel Haniel who has a beautiful, Goddess-like presence. She is an excellent angel to call upon for help is discovering and working with Goddess energy. A perfect time to connect with her is during a full moon or anytime outside in nature. Sit quietly and breathe deeply. Ask Haniel to help you connect with the goddess within yourself. She is there and She is beautiful.
