The divine feminine has been around for centuries spanning across different cultures and era, representing a diverse array of goddesses, archetypes, and feminine energy.
In ancient civilizations like Egypt, Isis an ancient Egyptian goddess, was revered for her devotion as a wife and mother. She was also associated with magic, fertility, and protection.
In Eastern traditions, figures like Kuan Yin in Buddhism and Shakti in Hinduism embody aspects of the divine feminine.
In Greek mythology, Aphrodite is the goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure. Her influence extends to desire and the arts.
The cycle of life and rebirth is a common and recurring theme in representations of the divine feminine across various cultures and mythologies.
Many goddesses, such as Inanna and Ishtar in Mesopotamian mythology, Demeter in Greek mythology, and others, embody this cyclical pattern.
This theme often symbolises the interconnectedness of life, the changing seasons, fertility, and the perpetual renewal of nature. It reflects a deep understanding of the rhythms of existence and the transformative nature of the divine feminine energy.
During the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the Christian tradition also included elements of the divine feminine, such as the reverence for the Virgin Mary.
However, in the Enlightenment and subsequent periods, these feminine aspects were often marginalised or suppressed due to patriarchal religious narratives.
In the 19th and 20th centuries, there was a resurgence of interest in the divine feminine within various spiritual movements, coinciding with the rise of feminism.
Many women delved into ancient goddess traditions, aiming to reclaim and reinterpret symbols of women empowerment.
Today, the divine feminine is often embraced within a broader, inclusive spiritual framework that transcends traditional religious boundaries.
She is often viewed as a symbol of balance, acknowledging the significance of both feminine and masculine energies for holistic well-being and spiritual growth.

The resurgence of interest in the divine feminine in modern times reflects a cultural shift towards recognising and embracing feminine qualities, often associated with ;
How Do You Practice Being In The Divine Feminine?
1. Let things flow with ease
This means accepting rather than forcing, or manipulating to get your own way as the current wave of toxic femininity would have you believe.

Heal the root cause of the wounded feminine to get to a healthy place of harmony with the universe and you’ll discover how powerful and magnetic you are!
2. Listen to body cues
When you are constantly consumed with anxious thoughts, it takes you away from the present, which creates a disconnection with your body.
You may or may not notice when you are disconnected from your body – but if you find yourself never knowing what you really want, having a hard time making decisions, always asking others what their opinion is, not knowing or recognising who you are, you are disconnected from your body and your inner world.
Listen to body cues for when you are energised or depleted around someone or a task you are involved with. Don’t ignore body sensations like clenched stomach, aching back, tension in your shoulders as it could save your life. The only exception to this rule is if you naturally have anxiety.
3. Trust your inner world.
Your intuitive feeling are the signals that you get from your body that guide you towards what’s right for you. It’s your inner knowing or as I like to call it your inner compass.
How many times have your ignored your intuition only for it to be right in the end?
Trust your inner world – when you repress your passions, ideas and thoughts and hobbies your inner world shrinks, leaving you with less room for self exploration.
External things like career success, validation from the opposite gender or accomplishments will never be enough as long you continue to dismiss your inner experiences.
This is a form of self betrayal and abandonment that only causes you to lose trust and confidence within yourself.
4. Set boundaries with yourself and others.
Women are often groomed to be people pleasers, we were taught early on that this quality is the biggest chance that we have for survival.
This causes us to overextend our empathy to others, while lacking empathy for ourselves.
Giving too much love while having very little for ourselves causes us to be drained of our vitality and energy.
When you are constantly surrounded by energy vampires, your nervous system is constantly dysregulated, causing you to be in a fight or flight mode.
Don’t even get me started on how this adverse stress can cause fertility issues amongst other illnesses!
As women, it is our job to master our emotions, give up the need to control outcomes and learn to detach from toxic people because your very life depends on it.
