The Ancient Goddess

 

We live in the male-dominated society, a world of power and money, competitiveness and domination, of oppression and war.

Female values are opposite and often subservient or oppressed. These values are the expression of love and peace, of healing and growth, of equality and freedom.They are the values of mother earth, the goddess, the Diosa, the divine energy in her feminine capacity. Since ancient times the Goddess has been venerated.

Thousands of female figurines have been found everywhere in the world in various ancient cultures.

Through my Silver goddesses, inspired by the beautiful original paintings and figurines of the Ancient Goddess, I want to contribute to reawakening the divine femininity in ourselves.

After all … each of us, woman and man, carry the memory of the Diosa deep in ourselves. If we ensure a positive shift towards the mother, both the mother and the father, as complementary opposites, will restore the balance in the world and in ourselves.

One divine energy: the Goddess and the God, together as one…

Do you dare to awaken her Strength and love in you?

Here below you can find a description of each of my Goddess pendants, the origin and where it stands for. When you like to buy a Goddess pendant, the description will be included.

GODDESS OF EMPOWERMENT

Righteousness, empowerment, strength

Many women are not fully aware of their inner power. You are capable of a lot more than you can imagine. Take a moment for yourself, one minute of silence…
Feel your connection with the Universe, and see the strength of the Goddess – the Female Divine – everywhere around you, in all that lives.
Focus on the strength within you, of all the blessings life has given you and will keep on giving you.

Wear the Goddess of Empowerment as a symbol of your inner strength and to encourage you to be aware Empowerment Goddess pendantsof your infinitive possibilities. This goddess is part of a prehistoric cave painting from the cave of the Torrunades (Vall d’Ebo, Alicante – Spain).  The Torrunades is part of the collection of Mediterranean rock art with the greatest artistic value and is under the protection of UNESCO. At the same time, in general it is the most unknown by the public.

She is noticeably larger than the other images of animals and people.

GODDESS OF LIFE

Signifies fertility, care, nutrition, security, love.

The original female figurine dates from 4500 BC. It is found on the Po plain in Northern Italy and measures 6 cm.

Thanks to the tapered lower body the figurine can easily be inserted into the ground. It is believed that in ancient cultures they inserted her into the ground in front of the entrance of a house for protection, or for fertility.

The Lady wears a fertility girdle and a red chain.  She has short arms and a small head with long hair or a veil.

To me she is a great example of the Ancient Goddess.
