Goddess within…

Standard

I have recently started paging through Carpe Diem or BUST by Cherie Roe Dirkson. I must admit I haven’t read it cover to cover but have stumbled across random parts that catch my attention.

One such post is about Skin The Goddess. Skin is the lead female of the British band Skunk Anansie. Cherie describes Skin as one of the most powerful women. Her reasoning for this is that “Skin embodies that strong and graceful energy yet she exudes that awesome male vibration.”.

Cherie goes on to say that men have been deprived of the female goddess energy that has been replaced by the submissive female energy in survival mode. She ends of with train of thought “We are all Gods and Goddesses and we should treat each other that way with love, respect and AWE. You are AWESOME and you are DIVINE! “.

So this got me thinking for several years now I have always called myself a Domestic Goddess and my blog been called Spicegoddess is definately no coincidence. I feel its the universe’s way of reminding me that indeed I am a Goddess. I am like Skin – strong, powerful and a lady too. And that is what makes me a Goddess.

Women of the world – ignite the Goddess within you and unleash your powers, grace and your femininity.

I truely believe after reading this in Cherie’s book it is indeed the universe reminding me of the fact that I am a Goddess, I deserve to be treated no less .

Recipe for Happiness…

Standard

In December during the time of Madiba’s passing, I came out of the movies to find a most interesting email. The email was from a lovely lady who contacted me via the blog posts I had written for my dear friend Sue Levy. The email was praise for my writing especially the post Forgetting Fear.I was asked if I would be interested in a book by Cherie Roe Dirkson called Carpe Diem or Bust.

My response was immediately “yes” and this started a beautiful friendship between R and myself which has blossomed over emails. I now consider R my big sister as I don’t have one. So today I finally got around to paging through this book I was gifted.

I paged through the book today and instantly I was drawn to this :

The post is called “Stocking your cupboard with Happiness”.

1)Loved ones – think of all the people in your life that make living a joy.Picture their happy smiley faces and feel the effect of their love in your heart centre.

2)Play music – listen to your favourite songs that make you happy.

3)Precious memories – bring out old scrapbooks/albums. Remind yourself of how many moments you have had in your life that were full and extraordinary.

4)Encounter animals – Cats balance your aura by their purring. Pets lift our spirits.

5)Nature – go be in Nature, its calming, grounding and balancing and its FREE.

6)Count your blessings – all our basic needs of food, shelter, clothing and a healthy body are things we take for granted but we should count these as blessings.

7) Laugh your head off – watch a comedy as no one likes a sour puss so make sure your face is creased with laughter lines.
