The words ‘Goddess Art’ came to me this morning … Interesting. Another category for my ARTIST Connection? How fun! And then I thought of here. I would LOVE to have Goddess Artists and their work featured here!
Wouldn’t it be nice to connect writers and artists, too?
I’m setting the space and the intention for creatives to connect, and to let the muse and magic unfold with ease and grace for all. Emily, you do beautiful goddess art. Thank you. – Anne
Read what you’re drawn to. Instinctively, we are drawn to what we need. There is a divine synchronicity in it all, always. Just go with it and allow its unfolding….
No surprise, a lot these days is filtered through losing Laura. There’s fall-out and impact in ways I didn’t expect.
I inherited her Kindle. I’d been looking at them…. She didn’t know that; I didn’t know she had one. She couldn’t get it to work… I did. Feels divinely guided and and inspired somehow that I have it.
The first books I downloaded were from the library–a sweet feature I discovered by chance in June. Heaven is For Real and Moonrise: The Power of Women Leading from the Heart.
Heaven is For Real beckoned because it came across my path three times in the previous days–which I’ve learned is a good clue I’m supposed to pay attention. I didn’t need convincing on the Heaven is for real part; reassurance is always nice, though.
It’s also a book one of my brothers picked up, felt comforted by, and passed on to my mom…who is not as open to messages from the other side as some of us are. Sometimes religion holds one from seeing beyond its boundaries. Maybe this helps open the gates a little.
I will tell you what got my attention the most in it, though: The little boy in this book told stories of his experiences in heaven, including what Jesus looks like. And it became a game. His dad would ask, So what’s wrong with this one? referring to an artist’s picture. And Colton would tell him. Until the day Colton saw the drawing by a then 8-year-old girl, Akaine, who had had a near-death experience and had draw the Prince of Peace she’d seen. It was the same image…. Wow and amazing.
That Jesus guy, he was magnetic and got attention…and he wasn’t so good at following rules either, especially where women were involved. And those are stories for another time. For now, though, Akaine‘s drawing and those eyes, mentioned by both kids as beautiful, is my take-away to ponder.
The second book I’m reading is Moonrise: The Power of Women Leading from the Heart. It too is full of wisdom of another kind….some of it holds a glimpse into the why and how stuff that turns our life upside down happens, and insight to move, grow, transform ourselves and others from there. Many women contributed to this one. And here too, I am being touched and inspired and deepened. And will share more on another day.
Blessings, love, and light as you read what you’re drawn to … and catch the notes you know are yours.
Hello everyday goddesses! I suspect a part of me was a cat in a past life, especially when the sun streams through the windows. I’ve always been drawn to them; their sleek agility; their mix of independence and affection; and their playfulness and personality that endear them so, make me laugh, and wrap me around their skillful paws.
It’s been said woman’s spirit is like a cat’s…

Cat Goddesses … more to feed your muse and inspire your inner goddess
“Bast (or Bastet, or Pasht) was the Egyptian goddess who appeared in cat form. The Egyptians highly revered cats; the word for cat, mau, also denoted light and was cognate with the word for mother. The cat is a lunar animal and also a solar animal representing the power of the sun as reflected in nature. Since the cat is an earth animal, Bast is also an earth mother goddess, a giver of life and abundance. In touch with her wild, instinctual nature, she also is a protector of women during childbirth. Like a cat, she is fiercely independent and belongs to no one but herself. Bast is one of the more joyful goddesses; her elaborate festivals in the town of Babustis were renowned for their joyful dancing. Embodying a cat’s gentler aspects, Bast is a personification of life and fruitfulness. The quintessential life-affirming mother, she remains us to be playful and relaxed like a cat and to find occasions to celebrate life.”
Goddesses Knowledge Card (Susan Eleanor Boulet Trust, Text: Michael Babcock)
- Ancient Egyptian goddess of divine order
- Goddess of wrath and a goddess of peace
- In her mythology, she did not initiate or provoke conflict, but when the divine order was threatened and the gods called upon Sekhmet for help, she responded with the direct savagery of a protective lioness.
- Besides her wrathful nature, Sekhmet was associated with healing and perceived as having the power to counteract illness. Her priesthood had a role in medicine… Her presence was invoked in situations where a patient could live or die, and on the battlefield, where life and death were also in the balance, as a warrior goddess.
