Read

1. Create a Peaceful, Powerful, and Private Space

Create a space for yourself which feels sacred, and inspiring.  This space should be a private space where you can spend over 20 minutes in. Your sacred space can be a bedroom, a garden, or any place you feel like you can be completely yourself in. Use this space to meditate, reflect on life, motivate yourself, and grow your feminine power.

2. Meditate

Meditation is key to becoming a goddess. Stress can make you irritable. Meditation helps reduce anxiety, and it can teach you to focus better. Meditation can also help you dispel negativity and remain calm in stressful situations.

3. Change Your Mindset

If you want to feel like a goddess all the time, your mindset will need to be shifted to a new way of life. Love yourself completely. Don’t be as critical on yourself. Turn your attention to focusing on what you need to be genuinely happy.
Break down your dreams into small steps and work on small accomplishment every day to achieve your dreams. You will feel more divine with each small goal you accomplish.

4. Connect with Your Divine Energy

Connecting with your divine energy is crucial. To do so, you’ll need to practice being present. Focus on what is currently happening in your life. Know what your intentions are, question what you want, and be open to genuine feedback. Let go of any past issues.

5. Let Go of Preconceived Notions

Ditch preconceived notions of what makes a woman and how women should behave. Cut the restraints of gender stereotypes and believe in yourself. You deserve to have the things you want in life, and you don’t have to compromise yourself to get what you want.

6. Connect with the Outside World

Nurture yourself by connecting with mother nature. Spend a few minutes outdoors, barefoot in the grass, gazing at the stars, or lying under a tree. Focus on soaking in mother nature and relaxing.

9. Normalize Self-Care

Take time every week to pamper yourself or do something you enjoy. Go to your favorite spots, listening to your favorite songs, and/or call your best friend and reminisce about fun times you had together. Change your lifestyle to match your new goddess role.

10. Spend Time Helping Other Goddesses

When you’re living your most authentic life and feel like your true self, you’ll know what it feels like to be a goddess. You can put your newfound skills to use by helping other women connect with their inner divine. They’ll feel powerful and strong, and you will too. Helping others is a great way to spread the movement. The more goddesses you surround yourself with, the more you’ll believe in feminine power.

Start with who your know

Have your child reach out to the oldest most influential woman (women) your children know. It might be a grandmother, a neighbor, or a teacher. Women are natural story tellers and are full of amazing stories.

Ask your child to ask 3 questions…

  • What did you want to be when you grew up?
  • Who was your childhood hero?
  • What do you remember most about being a little girl?

Your child might be surprised to see where these questions lead.
