Traits of a Goddess

What is a Goddess?  In my mind, it is one who is tapped into the infinite flow of Oneness, who lives life united in mind, body, and spirit, with goodness and Godness.  It is a lifestyle that we all, men* and women, can aspire to and achieve with practice, meditation, and most important, a deep connection to the Source of All, be it God, Allah, Spirit, Energy, Flow.

I discovered an awesome list of traits titled "A Goddess" by an unknown author.  Obviously, some wise person took the time to write this.  I would love to meet this person.  Today I will share with you this list that has gone viral.  In future blog posts, I will be exploring some of these traits in detail -- how to go from potential to actualization.  How can we be that Goddess - or acknowledge that we already are.

A Goddess
A goddess is a woman who emerges from deep within herself.
She is a woman who has honestly explored her darkness and learned to celebrate her light.
She is a woman who is able to fall in love with the magnificent possibilities within her.
She is a woman who knows of the magic and mysterious places inside her, the sacred places that can nurture her soul and make her whole.
She is a woman who radiates light.  She is magnetic.
She walks into a room and male and female alike feel her presence.
She has power and softness at the same time.
She has powerful sexual energy that's not dependent on physical looks.
She has a body that she adores and it shows by the way she comfortable lives and moves in it.
She cherishes beauty, light, and love.
She is a mother to all children.
She flows with life in effortless grace.
She can heal with a look or a touch of the hand.
She is fiercely sensual and fearlessly erotic and engages in sex as her way to share with another in touching the Divine.
She is compassion and wisdom.
She is a seeker of Truth and cares deeply about something bigger than herself.
She is a woman who knows that her purpose in life is to reach higher and rule with love.
She is a woman in love with love.
She knows that joy is her destiny and by embracing it and sharing it with others, wounds are healed.
She is a woman who has come to know that her partner is as tender, lost and frightened as she has been at times.
She has come to understand the scars of the boy in him and knows that together, love can be the relief, the healing of their wounds.
She is a woman who can accept herself as she is.  She can accept another as they are.
She is able to forgive her mistakes and not feel threatened by another's even when attacked.
She is a woman who can ask for help when she needs it or give help when asked.
She respects boundaries, hers and another's.
She can see God in another's eyes.  She can see God in her own.  She can see God in every life situation.
She is a woman who takes responsibility for everything she creates in her life.
She is a woman who is totally supportive and giving.
She is a Goddess.

*I think that men, if they practiced many of these traits would achieve this beautiful union with the Oneness, the life sustaining and enriching flow of energy.
