Embrace the power of femininity. For many, masculinity is a symbol of absolute power and too often, femininity is seen as a form of weakness or a subordinate status. However, you must look past this state of mind and celebrate the many unique strengths of femininity.
The Divine Feminine: Many believe becoming a goddess means awakening the Divine Feminine or following the feminine principles of being nurturing, loving, compassionate, of insight, intuition, creativity, forgiveness, healing, and wisdom.
Create a safe space for yourself where you can relax and feel comfortable. Build a space where you can disconnect from the busyness and demands of your social life.
This space can be a cozy room, a reading nook, or a quiet corner.
Fill your safe space with items that symbolize the goddess you want to be. It can be a picture or an object that represents your goddess.
Add relaxing items like candles, incense, a water fountain, plants and flowers, or spiritual crystals and stones.
Journal, pray, or daydream in this space. Do things that relax you and allow you to reflect and nurture yourself.
Accept and listen to your own feelings and emotions
In order to find your inner goddess, it’s important that you find peace within yourself. Don’t try to fill up a void or emptiness through external means (like being obsessed with vanity, greed, or lust to feel better about yourself).
Don’t focus on things you can’t change. Instead, accept it for what it is and you will be able to relieve yourself from the stresses of worrying about a situation you can’t change.
Don’t deny your emotions. Acknowledge them as valid and something worthwhile to feel and explore.
Meditation has many benefits psychologically and physiologically. The purpose of meditation is to clear your mind from distractions and give you more control over your own mind and body. It can lower stress levels, decrease your heart rate, build self-confidence, and increase creativity. Many women meditate as a way of connecting to their inner goddess.
Try a simple breathing meditation to start. Sit cross-legged or in a comfortable position. Close your eyes halfway and focus exclusively on the natural way you breathe. Become aware of how breath goes in and out of your body.
Resist the temptation to follow the many different thoughts that come up in your mind. Instead, focus all of your attention to the sensation of breathing.
Try guided meditation if you have trouble meditating. This requires less effort from you, but still gives you the benefits of meditation. It can also take you to places you would never have thought to visualize.
Try yoga as an alternate form of meditation. Yoga borrows much of its principles from meditation. It can help improve your physical health and breathing techniques.
Connect with Mother Nature
You might spend most of your time inside a building and divided from nature. It’s important to remind yourself of where you came from and the beauty of nature in order to find your inner goddess.
Walk bare feet through nature and feel the way your feet steadies and grounds you to the earth.
Do activities outside like biking, swimming, or hiking to appreciate and celebrate the beauty of nature.
Take care of your body by eating healthy and pampering it.
Your body is deserves to be treated with self-care practices that honour your physical and mental health.
Take an Epsom salt or milk bath while listening to soothing music and surrounded by sweet smelling candles. This will relax your mind but also soften and improve your skin.
Take mental health days where you spend time by yourself doing relaxing or uplifting activities.
Cut down on junk foods and have a well-balanced diet.
C A T E G O R I E S:
“The day she realised, it was not about the world but was all about her, she grew the wings. The day she understood she was not answerable to any of them who always blamed and pointed her, she had the fire blazing in her eyes. She raised and soared towards the sky. The whole world looked at her in awe and wished if only they could be her. She was not confined to be on the ground anymore. She had the wings of fire and she left a trail everywhere she went, for other to follow.”
