This year my theme is A Goddess' Glossary and we are looking at terms utilized by Goddesses, Priestesses, Shamans and Witches. These are terms that might occur in my new fantasy series, Paisley Cove.
D is for Divine Feminine
There is much written about the Divine Feminine. But today, I'm posting in my own words as I understand the concept of the Divine Feminine and my particular choice of belief.
Some view the Divine Feminine as that God is neither male or female but embodies both and by honoring the feminine that person is recognizing that there is both a divine masculine and divine feminine, each responsible for the balance in the world. The Yin and the Yang.
Others envision one or more of the following as the Divine Feminine: The Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, and Mother Nature.
Many recognize that the Divine Feminine is the giver of all life, hence she is most often portrayed with a swollen belly signifying pregnancy.
In the Paisley Cove series, Phoebe learns about the various beliefs surrounding the divine feminine and how to honor her.
