Greek Mythology

greek-mythology

Greek mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to throw light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself.

The Greeks were polytheistic in their religious beliefs. Polytheistic means they believed in and worshiped many different gods. In Greek mythology, the gods often represented different forms of nature. Their religion/mythology had no formal structure with the exception of various festivals held in honor of the gods. There was no sacred book or code of conduct to live by. The most powerful Greek gods were known as the Olympians. The Greeks believed the Olympians lived on the highest mountain in Greece, Mount Olympus. The Olympian gods included: Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Aphrodite, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Hades, Hermes, Hephaestus, Poseidon and Hestia or later she was replaced in some lists by Dionysus.

Aphrodite, help me to not constantly compare myself to others.
Goddess of love, remind me that I don't have to have a partner to be in love, that  I can be happy in love with life itself.
Your joy is infectious, Aphrodite. Help me to share it with others.
Aphrodite, let me be like you and share my joy and laughter with others to help them celebrate life!
Great Goddess, help me celebrate my feminine power today.
Share your ability to recover from setbacks quickly with me, Aphrodite, so that I can move forward to the next challenge in my life.
Aphrodite, remind me to set my worries aside for a while and to be lighthearted today.
Great Goddess, I rejoice with you in all acts of pleasure and love.
Thank you, Aphrodite, for helping me to be friendly, optimistic, and cheerful today.
