Healing Goddesses

Airmed (Celtic)

Airmed was known for her prowess in healing those who fell in battle. It is said that the world’s healing herbs sprouted from Airmed’s tears as she wept over her fallen brother’s body. She is known in Irish legend as the keeper of the mysteries of herbalism.

Aja (Yoruba)

Aja is said to be the spirit who taught all other healers their craft. She is a mighty Orisha, and it is is believed that if she carries you away but allows you to return after a few days, you will be blessed with her powerful magic.

Eir (Norse)

She is called upon often in women’s laments, but little is known about her other than her association with healing magic.

Isis (Egyptian)

Although Isis’ main focus is more magic than healing, she does have a strong connection to healing because of her ability to resurrect Osiris, her brother and husband, from the dead following his murder by Set. She is also a goddess of fertility and motherhood.

Panacaea (Greek)

Daughter of Asclepius and sister of Hygieia, Panacaea was a goddess of healing by way of curative medicine. Her name gives us the word panacaea, which refers to a cure-all for disease. She was said to carry a magic potion, which she used to heal people with any illness at all.

Healing

beauty-is-in-the-spirit-of-everythingHealing is the restoration of oneself, be it physical, emotional, spiritual or mental. Physically it can refer to a wound (in some religions it can mean the resurrection of our bodies). In this part of healing i’ll be writing about Spiritual Healing.

All conditions can be treated by spiritual healing – but not all people. Spiritual healing can help people in different ways, sometimes unexpectedly. Healing may cure someone or may not, but may instead help them to deal with the condition they have and to become more positive. Personally spiritual healing has helped me deal with a lot of feelings and mental health (anxiety). It has helped me deal with some fears and past issues. Spiritual healing not only heals the spirit but the body and mind too.

The Universe Under Her Skin!

“Every mother and every beloved is forced to become the carrier and embodiment of this omnipresent and ageless image, which corresponds to the deepest reality in man.” – Jung

Why shouldn’t you be utterly in love with the uniqueness of your authentic self? Self love maybe perceived as or lead to arrogance or self-importance or any other human judgement, but why should you conform to what the rest of the world calls ‘arrogance’ just because it doesn’t make any sense to them? Jade Beall, writer of “A Beautiful Body Project” states that, “I say why not let go of all those judgments and instead BELIEVE that we are freakin’ PURE magic and know that the “stuff” that makes our galaxy and all the starts and which infuses our sun and the magic that we see at night in our sky is the same exact “stuff” that makes these bodies we find ourselves in at this very moment.  Isn’t that flippin’ GLORIOUS?!”9564e7a7f72baf7dcfa161720fe32ecf

THE GODDESS

A GODDESS is a female deity. While they have been, are and may be associated with as wide a range of phenomena as male deities, including war, destruction and death as well as creation, life-giving, healing and compassion, they have more commonly been associated with the Earth, fertility, motherhood and love.
