Goddesses gather here

Welcome to Kindred Spirit Center. The feminine is honored here; and the masculine too. Yin and yang, balance, harmony, creation.

What is a goddess? Sometimes others have said it better… So, here’s an piece of a post by Heather Fraser:

A goddess is…

A goddess is a woman who emerges from deep within herself. She is a woman who has honestly explored her darkness and learned to celebrate her light. She is a woman who is able to fall in love with the magnificent possibilities within herself. She is a woman who knows of the magic and mysterious places inside herself, the sacred places that can nurture her soul and make her whole. She is a woman who radiates light. She is magnetic. She walks into a room and male and female alike feel her presence. She has power and softness at the same time. She has powerful sexual energy that’s not dependent on physical looks. She has a body that she adores and it shows by the way she comfortably lives and moves in it. She cherishes beauty, light, and love. She is a mother to all children. She flows with life in effortless grace. She can heal with a look or a touch of the hand. She is fiercely sensual and fearlessly erotic and engages in sex as her way to share with another in touching the Divine. She is compassion and wisdom. She is a seeker of Truth and cares deeply about something bigger than herself. She is a woman who knows that her purpose in life is to reach higher and rule with love. She is a woman in love with love. She knows that joy is her destiny and by embracing it and sharing it with others, wounds are healed. She is a woman who has come to know that her partner is as tender, lost, and frightened as she has been at times. She has come to understand the scars of the boy in him and knows that together, love can be the relief, the healing of their wounds. She is a woman who can accept herself as she is. She can accept another as they are. She is able to forgive her mistakes and not feel threatened by another’s even when attacked. She is a woman who can ask for help when she needs it or give help when asked. She respects boundaries, hers and another’s. She can see God in another’s eyes. She can see God in her own. She can see God in every life situation. She is a woman who takes responsibility for everything she creates in her life. She is a woman who is totally supportive and giving. She is a Goddess.

Okay, that’s a lot to aspire to. We are a work in process. And this is one of those places to inspire and grow in as women.

The guys have their own ways, strengths, needs…and perhaps religions. We have to find our own. Because the guys’ model doesn’t speak the language of women. It was once believed that women and men were alike except for different gender parts. In 1982, Harvard University professor Carol Gilligan published a groundbreaking book, In a Different Voice, revealing the differences…and the impact of women being measured—morally, cognitively, spiritually, relationally—against models that were not theirs. When we are measured or judged by ‘somebody else’s yardstick,’ we will always be perceived as, or feel, not good enough, not as good as, different, or lacking in some way. And we are not lacking, or less than. We are coming into our own using inspiration that feeds the feminine spirit. Want more? You are welcome here
