If you are a woman, congratulations! You belong to a Goddess divinely inspired exclusive, sorority. Sadly, many of us don’t have the belief, the notion or a clue about our Goddess Divinity. What exactly is Goddess Divinity? It is experiencing the spiritual aspect of your feminine and divine nature that is your birthright, one that predisposes you to extraordinary wisdom and talents.
Before I discuss how you might tap into your Divine nature, I want to talk about some extraordinary women that I know both privately and publicly.
Speaking from a purely non sexual point of view, I love women. I am continually amazed at the depth of knowledge and power we women possess. Over my lifetime, I have been blessed to know and befriend the most extraordinary women!
Women who have single handedly raised families, their own, others and all generations in between. They have driven tractors from the age 12 when there was no one else to do it. One woman I know, raised four siblings without a father her mother who was too ill to care for her children. She was 13….. and at that tender age, drove a car to visit her sick mother in the hospital.
I have known women who’ve managed to support their children in the most ingenious ways, because of husbands who abandoned their family. There are women who left home at 15 to escape abuse and yet somehow managed to educate themselves and build successful careers.
We don’t break, we bend. We are the lioness defending our pride. We invented the phrase “Multi-tasking” and now we have little time to whine about life’s injustices or complain about what could have, or should have been. We live in the present and learn the lessons of the past.
We are Rosie the riveter, Demeter the goddess of earth and fertility and Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love.
Despite all this independence and fiery determination, we don’t do it alone. Behind every great woman is another woman cheering her on. We comfort, console, support and rally around one another when the chips are down and we are their champions when things are up. We will not forsake a friend or break a promise. We are mighty and magical!
“A woman is like a tea bag. It’s only when she’s in hot water that you realize how strong she is.”
