Goddesses in the Making

i am doing a course with the amazing Queen Dani - the changes are so immense, the love so deep it is hard for me to gather them in words here

i just wanted to touch on a realisation i had this morning which relates to my last post (bloody blogger lost 15 comments in their little melt down yesterday which i need to have a mourning period for - i do treasure comments and i feel their loss)

Goddess Pam the Paradoxical from the heART and soul course run by Queen Dani talked about her grand-daughter as a GIM - a Goddess In the Making.

and something clicked inside me

i said in my last post that i wanted to be like the Goddess for my girls

well now i have realised that i have to acknowledge the Goddess in them...

i also see that my frustrations, particularly with the daughter who is prickly and stroppy and at times downright mean are connected to me trying to poke her into the nice box

to take those loose strands of the Goddess that are part of her being and make them fit into the box of nice...

The Goddess is stroppy when she needs to be. She knows how to protect her soveriegnty, she knows when to call out the shit, she knows that nice is just not worthy of her strength and her love.... Nice, being nice, being sweet unnaturally is not the behaviour of the Goddess - that is the behaviour of someone under the thrall of the Bishop....

I have felt this swirling of dismay and anger whenever i have felt challenged by her behaviour, whenever i have seen other people reel back from her fury...

To be able to go a place where i can see this as Kali in action in her, and i can teach her to temper it to the situation, but honour the Goddess in her at the same time feels so deeply right....

My girls and I are Goddesses in the Making...


  1. Is it too late to adopt me?

  2. Did you know, (I think you did), those goddess traits are what made me and your beautiful daughter click - I value those traits in her so much! She is awesome.

  3. This makes me smile!! I'm SO glad you've found a way to deal with this ~ both of you will benefit!!!

    This is JUST what I needed to read just at this moment. I'm going to write it down in my notebook of wisdom. Thank you so much for sharing these thoughts and realisations.

    PS that is just the most beautiful photograph

  6. Loving that photo of you in your Goddessness
    and the Goddesses in the making <3

  7. Your girls surely are (beautiful) Godesses in the making Jane. As for you, I think you've already earned that title. And you are right, Godesses aren't naive and always nice. Their tantrum can be terrible, but always justified!
