The Goddess & Me
So this got me thinking about my beliefs...Now I've never been a religious person but I've always believe in an Afterlife, otherworldly beings such as ghost & spirits & a life creating entity. The older I got the more I explored, balanced is important to me in all aspect, mebbe it's to do with the fact I'm a Librain? And because of this fact monolithic religions never made any sense to me. A man created all living beings...alone? It never sat right with me, to me one cannot be without the other, yes is it the woman whom carry & gives birth to life but in order to create you need a man's seed. So when that fateful came when a certain pentacle on a page caught my eye leading me to go on & read about Wicca...the great "AH-HA!" moment came & it have felt like I had come home to myself, at least a part of it =)
So onto the Goddess, well, to me there is a Great Mother Goddess as there is a Great Father God and all the gods & goddess are aspects of the great two. Together they are the Spirit, the life force of the Universe.
To me the Goddess is gentle, loving & nurturing but at the same time she is powerful & fearsome, one not to be trifled with.The Morrigan springs to mind at that, she was one of the first aspects of the Goddess I was drawn too since I have always admire powerful women. Airmid is the other aspect I am drawn too, being the goddess of wortcunng (herbal knowledge) and leechcraft (herbal healing), I adore herbs and I reveal in any little tit-bit of information about them whether it be healing, magick or cooking, I even used to watch a TV show called "The Herbs" when I was a child, heehee. I love how once I find these gods & goddesses it'e like they're always been with me and they seem almost familiar in a sense, like I've recovered from some kind of amnesia and remembered who they are.
With Love & Light
