There is no better time than Spring (March 20-21) to share the Spirit of Mother Goddess. One cannot deny the healing effects of her effervescent glow. As a woman,Witch (wise one), mother, sister, wife,and friend, Goddess is at the very core of my Craft and or worship. She represents everything that is, will come, and has followed…she is the essence of me, the Mother of all life. Her force… her “Spirit” is Wild and Free and genderless, a union of thee…however, when her energy graces us with sprinkles of her Cosmic dust…within the universe, anthropomorphically, she can be manifested into a force of nature, and or fe-male energy.
Historically, one can gather, Goddess worship records back to the Paleolithic times. Some of the first images found of the Goddess note back to the Cro-Magnons of Upper Paleolithic period between 35,000 and 10,000 BC. She is named Venus. Also, other female figurines found date back to the proto-Neolithic period of ca, 9000-7000 BC, the Middle Neolithic period of ca. 6000-5000 BC,and the Higher Neolithic period of ca. 4500-3500 BC. In Africa, she was discovered, in paintings, dating back to 7000-6000 BC. During predynastic Egypt, prior to 3110 BC, she was known as Ta-Urt (Great One).
The point of all this being, throughout time Goddess , and her worship, has acquired many faces…however, she has always represented nature..and, the female essence of divinity… which focuses on nature through an emphasis on creating life and relating in an ethical and caring way to all living beings, among other aspects. ‘Now when one gets into the psychology of this thought …anthropomorphic terms have to be worked into the psyche. For example, the human mind is unable to understand any type of divinity without some form of anthropomorphism.”
Therefore,theoretically, if such a system is applied to the usual “concept” of God, giving “him” the different titles which people have attributed to him, one finds a multitude of separate “gods” with names like Almighty, Yahweh, Christ,Jehovah,Allah….etc…each one is assigned a particular function in the pantheon.” Hence, a similar system is applied in Goddess honoring…Isis,Lord,Kwan, Yin,Neith,Nut,Iemanja, Mary… Goddess worship can be balanced by honoring both fe-male deities. This practice is best summarized as being the belief in the second marriage of the sky god and earth mother.
Incidentally,above, I’ve supplied some historical data as to the journey of Goddess existence and movement. And, I would hope to convey in my writings,unions,and guidance of others,of how Powerful the effects of experiencing divinity in whatever way is meaningful to oneself. The journey is life-changing…because of the very Nurture of the experience. Goddess is and can mean many different things to any one particular individual. That is one of many beautiful manifestations of the path of Goddess. Furthermore, I choose to, and will continue to guide others into her light and walk my journey with and through her…it’s a wonderful thing.
With blessings of Goddess ☽ ☼ ☾
