the goddess

I have been spending a lot of time thinking about my life and what symbols are important on this spiritwalk. Over this past summer I explored the goddess and I know the feminine aspect is significant to me. During the early 1980’s I read books by Paramahansa Yogananda and he stated that he used to pray to the Divine Mother aspect of God. Although intellecutally I understand that I did not understand it from a heart space. Most recently I came across a quote: “goddess is the embodiment of the divine as feminine.” and bam it finally sunk in…so I was inspired to create this:

I ran out of turquoise and white thread so I will finish this when I can. I put the original quote at the beginning and then added other words that came to mind. Next, I decided I would like to have something I could hold in my hand as a gentle reminder of the divine feminine and how I am protected and loved so I created this:

they are approx. 4″ tall and fit comfortably in the palm of my hand. These are the “modest” version.

this is the Venus of Willendorf estimated to have been carved 24,000–22,000 BC.  The next version I created was modeled as closely in detail to her:

  1. Totally cool. I thought of doing something based on this doll…but you have done such a great job. If you do get a PDF up I think I will make one and add it to my doll collection.

    • I really do want to get this pattern up here. As soon as I can I will. It is all ready to go. Just need the way to get it up here. They are so much fun to make.
