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:
your probably wondering why I made so many…well,
it is because it was fun and therapeutic. So much so that I want to give away the pattern for it in a pdf form. I have the pattern completed just need to scan it in…
a basket full of the goddess….
