What is an Earth Goddess?

Tuesday, 12 May 2009 12:20

I am an Earth Goddess.  And so are you.  But what does that mean - what is an Earth Goddess anyway?

Here is my definition of what an Earth Goddess is - an Earth Goddess is someone who aims to do everything with love.

And just in case there are any guys out there reading this, yes you are an Earth God, but it does not have quite the same ring to it.

Since starting my business, Earth Goddess, a few people have asked me jokingly whether I am an Earth Goddess.  My answer has always been "of course".  This kind of surprises me; it is almost as if I am observing myself saying this.  At one level I know it - and it also makes me laugh.

This is all pretty new to me and I still cannot really comprehend it.  Maybe I can understand it if I think that I am an Earth Goddess in training (with learners plates).  That feels better.

There are 3 major things I have realised over the last few years (that have also made me feel foolish at first):

  • I am living in nirvana;
  • I can heal myself;
  • I can do it - it being spiritual growth.

In my book, Doing It with Love!, I talk about paradoxes and the most wonderful paradox of all is that I am ordinary - but I am also discovering my own unique gifts.  We are all special with our own unique gifts.

So following on with this train of thought - I am an Earth Goddess but I am also totally ordinary.  I can be both.  I am trying not to be presumptuous and speak for you - but it follows that you are also an Earth Goddess and totally ordinary as well.

So okay, if we assume that we are Earth Goddesses, what does this mean at a practical level.  How do you act like an Earth Goddess?  You try to do everything with love - every day in every way in every simple action.

When Herby and I are having an argument and I start behaving like a mad cow, his favourite thing now is to say "yeah, you are so spiritual".  I still behave really badly at times, too often.  But every day, I am trying.

I want to end with this wonderful parable from the Anastasia series of books.  There are so many great nuggets in these books (Kin's Domain, Kin's Book, the power of thought and the power of imagery) and Anastasia creates the most amazing images with her stories.

The ancient parable I want to share with you is called "A goddess of a wife" and it is from Book 7 entitled The Energy of Life by Vladimir Megre.

It is quite long, but I will try and capture the essence of it here.

"Once upon a time there lived an ordinary husband (Ivan) and wife (Elena).  Every day, the husband would come home from work and read the paper or switch on the television.  Elena would make dinner and nag him that he never did anything useful around the house and was not earning enough money.

Ivan would get irritated and think to himself that when he got married his wife was so totally different - she was beautiful, she was tender.

One day while taking the rubbish out he thought 'O Lord!  Just look at how lousy my life has turned out!  Do I really have to while away all my remaining years with such a nagging and ugly wife?  This isn't life - it is sheer torture!'

And then all of a sudden Ivan heard the quiet voice of God:

'My son, I could help alleviate your troubles.  I could give you a splendid goddess of a wife, only if your neighbours noticed a sudden change in your life, they might become greatly astonished.  Let us work this way:  I shall change your wife just a little at a time.  I shall imbue her with the spirit of a goddess and improve her outward appearance.  Only you must remember if you want to live with a goddess, you have to make your own life worthy of a goddess.'

'Thank you O Lord!  Any man would be happy to change his life for the sake of a goddess.  But tell me: when will you start making changes in my wife?'

'I shall begin with a few little changes right away.  And minute by minute I shall be changing her for the better.'

Ivan went back into his home and turned on the television.  But he did not feel like watching tv.  He could not wait to peek and see whether his wife had started changing - even just a little.  He went and stood by the kitchen door and began watching his wife intently.

All at once Elena felt herself being watched and turned toward the doorway.  Their eyes met.  Ivan looked at his wife and thought:  No, I don't see any changes going on in my wife.

Seeing the unusual attention her husband was paying her and not being able to figure it out, Elena all at once straightened her hair and a rosy blush came over her cheeks.

Embarrassed, Ivan said 'Maybe I could help with the dishes'.  Wow!  She's changing right before my eyes.  Look how much prettier she has become all of a sudden!

The next day after work he could not wait to get home.  He thought:  I haven't changed even a little bit myself as usual.  I should buy her some flowers so I wont fall flat on my face before a goddess.  Upon opening the door to his house, he stood in amazement - there was his wife in a pretty dress and the table set for a romantic dinner.  With some awkwardness he offered the flowers to Elena, not being able to take his eyes off her.

He thought:  O Lord, how marvellous goddesses are after all!  But if she keeps on getting better day by day, can I become worthy of this goddess?

What a night that was!  What a morning!  And oh, what a day it is!  How marvellous to live with a goddess! thought Ivan, as he bundled up his second grandson for an outdoor stroll."

This story blows me away with its simplicity and power.  It is that easy for us to totally transform our world.  Imagine if we all treated each other this way.

So I will keep trying to behave like an Earth Goddess.  Does that mean I always have to be nice to Herby or perish the thought - treat him as an Earth God?  Little steps.

This is my current understanding of what an Earth Goddess is.  As my understanding grows .... 

Nike says "Just Do It" but Earth Goddess says "Do it with Love!".  Nike is the Winged Goddess of Victory.  So does that mean that an Earth Goddess is a Goddess of Love - sounds pretty good to me.

Hi Sarah
It is such a lovely story - there are so many in the Anastasia series of books - but this is definitely one of my favourites.
Relationships can be such a battleground.
To all the men out there - I challenge you to try it - it couldn't hurt and just imagine .... If you do, I would love to hear how it went.
Thank you for your comment, Sarah, you are such a lovely goddess.

I drop a comment when I appreciate a article on a website or
I have something to add to the conversation. It is triggered by the sincerness displayed in the article I looked at.
And on this article What is an Earth Goddess?
| Blog. I was moved enough to post a thought ;) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't
mind. Could it be only me or does it look as if like some of the responses appear
like left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social
sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you list
all of all your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?



Look at my blog post ... Finances In The Bible
