A true goddess is a woman who is in full realization and expression of her divine feminine essence.

She recognizes how bright her light is and isn’t shy to shine it out to the world. She has a healthy relationship to her darker side, too, because she has endured her darkest hour and received its lessons with honor and gratitude. She embraces this duality and understands that it is the key to her greatest power and deepest wisdom.

She experiences no separation between her and Mother Earth, as she is in sync with the seasons and all the natural rhythms of the Universe.

She knows her body, so she can heal when she is sick; she knows her heart, so she can open it wide when she chooses and close it in protection when she needs; she knows her mind, so she can invite challenge; and she knows her limitations, so she can endlessly expand.

When she bleeds she is thankful.

She stops in her tracks at the sight of the moon to tilt her head up and drink in the white light that nourishes and guides her throughout the month and connects her to her sisters. She will climb to the top of mountains to get as close as she can to the sun so she can drink in its warmth, allowing it to feed the fire in her belly and give her the strength to keep moving forward when all seems dead and gone.

She is pure and innocent like a baby; playful and free like a little girl; sassy and adventurous like a teenager; independent and knowledge-seeking like a young woman; nurturing and unconditionally loving like a mother; and confident and wise like a grandmother.

She is a shapeshifter. Like water she flows, constantly moving, changing, evolving, growing and transforming into something more beautiful and authentic.

She’s bold, fearless, fierce, fragile but not afraid to break. She knows that when she shatters more light will shine in and she will pick up the pieces to build something even more beautiful.

She loves beauty.

She is beauty. She creates beauty everywhere she goes. She is a warrior, embodying the masculine when the situation calls. She’s simple and complex; wonderful and wild; silly and sexy; empty and full; can effortlessly do and be and flow between the two.

She studies the subtle so she can do the work of the divine in every moment. She is so confident in her partnership with Spirit that she looks strangers in the eyes, beaming her warmth, because she doesn’t know any other way of being.

When she dances, it’s church. When she sings it’s to God. She cleans her house like it’s a Temple and she its high priestess. She builds altars and sanctuaries, gardens and havens for those in the spirit realm to come visit because she knows they like that.

She knows her soul, so she knows its compliment when she sees it. She knows how her spirit needs to be cared for and supported, so when she finds another being out there who turns her on in every way—the highest way—and sees her Truth, she unabashedly reveals her petals, allowing her layers to unfold and her colors and textures and dimensions—her whole Self—to be seen, really seen.

She knows her heart, so she can love back in completeness, without attachment or neediness, only pure essence. And so they spiral and spiral and spiral in perfect union, one vibration, as love, to the center of the universe and back, for all eternity.
