What can we do throughout our day to remind us of our goddess nature?

This question was posed to me on my meditation platform on Insight Timer here is a list I've put together of simple ways we can connect to the nature and energy of the goddesses in little ways throughout our day :D 

1)    Draw a goddess oracle card first thing in the morning to seek guidance or advice for the day (I love “The Goddess Oracle” by Amy Sophia Marashinsky)

2)    Create a simple aromatherapy blend inspired by your favourite goddess to use in your bath, diffuser or on your body with a carrier oil.

Here’s a recipe to get you started!

“The Lioness” Courage Blend inspired by Goddess Sekhmet

Top notes: Lemon and Bergamot

Heart Notes: Clary Sage

Base Notes: Patchouli

3)    Create simple and meaningful evening rituals to celebrate your day – a bath, light a candle, listen to a goddess themed meditation are all simple and easy ways to unwind from your day!

4)    Connect to Earth Goddess Gaia – and get your feet on the earth! We can often go days or even weeks without physically connecting to the earth. Take of your shoes and wiggle your toes in the grass, if its wet or cold, place your palm on a tree trunk or run your fingers through long grass

5)    Create: write, draw, paint, sew, collage whatever craft you like! Use your creativity as a channel for the goddess – you could paint how you see your inner goddess or write about the Goddess qualities you most want to embrace in this moment. Or create a collage themed around your favourite Goddess

6)    Make a Goddess Wheel; create your own year! You may create a wheel of 4 goddesses 1 for each season to help you embrace the energy of the season. Such as fiery goddess Pele for Summer and Goddess of compassion and reflection Kuan Yin for Winter. Or you may choose 8 goddesses for the 8 pagan seasons of the year. You can read more about Goddess wheels in my article in Kindred Spirit Magazine.

7)    Create an altar for the goddess/your favourite goddesses. This can be a place you come to set intentions, journal, meditation. Or just to act as a reminder of your goddess journey. If you’re not sure where to start, a simple candle and image of a goddess will do! You can add items over time such as crystals, object from nature or things that have special meaning to you like photos or keepsakes.

8)    And as I love a good book; a few ideas for reading!

o   For Archetypes and mythology look at 'Naming the Goddess' edited by Trevor Greenfield which is full of insightful essays from various authors and essays of notable goddess archetypes, and 'Goddess' by Sue Jennings is a really sweet illustrated book full of lovely Goddesses and ideas for working with the goddesses. 

o   For an overview of Goddess wisdom take a look at 'Goddess Wisdom' by Tanishka and 'The Inner Goddess Revolution' by Lyn Thurman.
