Welcome back and happy Friday!
As it so happens, today we will be talking about the Norse goddess Freya, Friday’s namesake!
But first, we will delve into the symbolism, significance and rich history of the Black Madonna. Also known as “Our Lady of the Hermits,” the Black Madonna represents the power we all have to emerge from the darkness transformed, and the wisdom we can only accrue when we go through the often painful fires of transformation. She may represent a new awareness or consciousness towards the earth and our bodies and Her energy is very active in the collective consciousness right now. Can you feel it?
Now, back to our powerful Freya, the Norse goddess associated with love, beauty, fertility, sex, war, gold, and “seiðr,” or “magic for seeing and influencing the future.” Freya supports our intuitive sense of discernment, which allows us to discern the most life-giving choice in each moment. Her message is: “I spent my time wisely, and I only say yes when it is a holy hell yes!” Do YOU know the difference between a small yes and a HOLY HELL YES? You are a priestess of your own fate. You get to choose the life you want and this happens by being fierce and warrior-like about what you want to say yes to!
This is Part IV of a multi-part series on figures who represent divine femininity featuring the Divine Feminine Oracle Cards by Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Master of Divinity and profound feminist theologian, Meggan Watterson.
Like the powerhouse female icons and goddesses discussed in Episode 163, Episode 166, and Episode 176, the Black Madonna and Freya are two earthshaking embodiments of the Divine Feminine that all women need to be aware of because doing so can help tap into their abilities and essence within OURSELVES. These figures represent The Feminine in powerful, dynamic yet unique ways that are often not depicted in mainstream narratives. Remember: the Divine Feminine energy within us all is a force that can be as powerful as a tsunami or as soft as a lullaby. I believe the trick to embodying Her energy is to have the discretion to know WHEN the right time is for tapping into a selected aspect of her many faces and when to express more of the Divine Masculine in you – not an easy task I know! But don’t worry, I’m here to help and that’s what this show is all about! 🙂
