"Goddess" redefined

I’ve never thought much about the word “Goddess.” Well, that’s not completely true. I suppose I’ve thought enough about it to label it, to judge it. And to decide that the word just simply did not apply to me or my life in any way shape or form. It was simply reserved for other people whose life experiences were very different from mine.

As I’ve often said, I believe it’s important to reevaluate our definitions of things from time to time. So last night I decided to jump into a course I was a little hesitant to take at 21 SECRETS. Leonie’s (aka Goddess Leonie’s) workshop is entitled “Connect with the Goddess Inside You.”

Once I began her video introduction, my labels quickly dissolved. Leoni seemed to glow with laughter and light. I knew I would enjoy this class. She led me on a guided meditation through beautiful imagery. It was an empowering and illuminating journey into myself.

I remembered my internal Self is free of all labels. This Self lives inside us all. Words mean nothing at this level of our being.

We simply create words to try to capture what we know is there. Could we call it “The Goddess” inside of us? ABSOLUTELY!

    Hi Jen,
    Lovely words….lovely journal page…I have never considered myself a “goddess” – something turned me off about that term – did I think I was undeserving??? Your words have inspired me to rethink my definition of “goddess”. If we are all God’s expression, perhaps goddess is not such an inappropriate term after all. Huge thank yous for all that you do to keep us inspired and expanding our way of thinking about things.

      I am so grateful that you are joining me in the redefining of the word.
