What is Goddess-ness?
Well it’s a little game I like to play when I am feeling, shitty, insecure and lonely? I ask myself, “If I were a Goddess what would I be doing right now?” I know this may seem a little childish, but would a Goddess care what anyone else thinks of her games? Certainly not!
I have done a lot of studying and learning over the years and have often been advised to pick a particular role model who I would like to emulate. Perhaps a movie star or very successful business women, but what works for me is the archetype of the Goddess.
When I start to go into my “stuff” I often imagine how a Goddess would handle this particular situation. Would a Goddess ever pine away over a lost love? Would a Goddess ever pick a man who was not her equal, a man who would not put her needs in the same category as his own? No! A Goddess would live her life whether she had a man or not and in the living she would attract all kinds of wonderful men who were not intimidated by her Goddess-ness!
