Goddess Mythology

goddessMost of humankind has moved far from Goddess Worship. Many of us in the present day are reclaiming “She” in our personal lives. You can never redo the past, we are not meant to, but we always need to go back and embrace that which still serves us well. Goddess worship is that force that we must keep and cherish to heal and flourish again.

When the Patriarchy (western civilization) destroyed and distorted the earth plane, feminine archetypes, woman’s sexuality and nature, they also tainted her mythology. Most of the mythology available is incorrect. Many stories were changed to depict how Men gave birth to civilization through masturbation and violent mutilation. Also, there is an over emphasis on European myths and neglect of others.

All things are born from a woman.

The Goddess has always ruled love, beauty, shamanism, midwifery, belly dancing, herbology, crystals, tantric sexuality, nurturance, creativity, expansion, holistic wellness & being, the great cycles, menstrual blood, sacred darkness, the Earth, protection, the waters, grain and wine, and milk.
