How is your inner goddess doing?


Well, Advent started on Sunday.
We set up our home made Advent calendar - Mary's walk.
We played some Christmas carols.
And we made some home made Christmas mince pies.

Quite yummy, but a bit sweet for me.
I think I will have to halve the sugar content in the filling next time.

If you are thinking of Christmas and what you could gift yourself, I have the perfect book for you.

The Inner Goddess Makeover.
By the lovely goddess, Tanishka.

You can buy it here.

I bought this book a few months ago and I am ready to start sharing my journey through this book with you.

This is not a book you sit and read in a day.
It is a process that you have to go through.

The book takes you through seven goddess archetypes.
Each goddess is represented by a chakra.
(The chakras are our seven main energy centres in our bodies)

Tanishka recommends that you take one lunar month to read each chapter.

"Since we, as women, ebb and flow with the inner tidal surges of the moon, a full lunar cycle enables us to really integrate and consciously anchor the strengths that each archetype unveils within us."

A brief introduction to the goddesses:

Base chakra: Wild woman
Sacral chakra: Beautiful muse
Solar plexus chakra: Golden heroine
Heart chakra: Earth empress
Throat chakra: Medicine woman
Third eye chakra: Wise woman
Crown chakra: High priestess

I cannot tell you how much fun I have been having with this book.
And how much I have been growing and discovering things about myself.

I feel more real, more empowered and happier because of the work I have been doing with this book.

I will post my experiences about each goddess for you as I go along.

This month, I am embracing my inner medicine woman.
And I am wearing my Lapis Lazuli crystal all month to bring her in.

What is so wonderful about this book, other than it being really funny, is that it is giving me an appreciation for all the beautiful aspects of myself.

We, as women, are so complex. We have so much to discover about ourselves. And so much to teach others.I feel privileged to be a woman.


I will share a bit of the book for you to enjoy:


"The first step is to realize there is no such thing as the perfect woman. And of course your idea of the perfect woman is not necessarily  the same as mine. Depending on which feminine archetype is ruling you, you may aspire to be a tall leggy blonde, a perfect Mother or a career superwoman... but none of these ideals will bring happiness if they are not balanced by the other archetypes.


The very idea of a perfect woman is a myth brought about primarily by marketing consultants wanting women to compulsively purchase products in the name of self-improvement. Tell-a-vision is exactly that, a vision of the world we are told to compete with, at the risk of social suicide should we fail to comply. If this sounds like a harsh appraisal, just watch daytime TV, (targeted specifically at women) and observe your self esteem plummet like a thermometer bound for the Arctic. By 3pm, you'll think your skin too white, your breasts too small, your wardrobe inadequate, your teeth too yellow, your thighs too soft and your hair colour too drab. Which begs the question, "So why do we buy it?"


Because we have literally been "programmed" to want to emulate the models we see on TV. Fortunately for us, a model is only a replica of a real thing. It is not the real thing. WE are the real thing, 100% unique specimens of womanhood. After all, the word "model" is a product description and you are not a product. You are a human being! (I, for one, strongly suspect we were never intended  to have skin as smooth as the plastic on Barbie's legs or roast our stomachs golden brown like take-out chicken in the name of beauty.)


And although we may wish we had smaller thighs or tighter abs, smaller thighs alone do not a Goddess make. No, what does give certain women that special something (and I don't mean a yeast infection) is the self-assurance of knowing they are absolutely divine exactly as they are. That is the sole purpose of this book: to enable you to see, explore and know yourself as the utterly divine creature that you truly are. So you:
A. Never doubt it again and
B. Don't surround yourself with people who fail to acknowledge you as a fully fledged Goddess in your own right. (That said, there's no need to convince the console operator at your local service station that you are in fact a Goddess. Just knowing this truth will suffice.)


Yes, regardless of your age or silhouette, just consciously embodying this principle from the inside out will bestow upon you a glow reserved for those proud owners of Aphrodite's best kept beauty secret."

Blessings to you.
