Honoring the Triple Goddess Within You
As we walk our path, it is incredibly important that we maintain balance. You will hear of many Goddesses that have triple aspects like Hecate and Morrigan. If you learn to identify the triple aspects within yourself, the maiden, the mother, and the crone, and honor them it will lead you to lead a more balanced life as well. Depending on where you are on your life path, you will most likely identify with one of these aspects stronger than the others. For instance, as a Mom, I identify closer with the Mother aspect right now. However regardless of where you are on your path, you can honor all three of them within yourself.
Let's take a closer look:
The Maiden is the promise of new beginnings and hope. She is carefree and excited about life. We can honor the maiden within ourselves by doing activities that are fun and free our soul. Find what makes you happy and do it. :))))))) This can be taking a long walk in the fields and along the creek gathering wildflowers, or painting while you listen to music in an art room. You may choose to dance, sing, write, play games, travel some place new and exciting, whatever activity gets your heart racing a little bit and puts one of those smiles upon your face that makes your cheeks hurt after a little bit. When you honor the maiden within you, you take the time to do whatever it is that is fun for you and makes your heart sing.
The Mother represents giving, compassion, and nurturing. When you care for little ones you get an irreplaceable feeling of love. When you honor the Mother within yourself you give to others and nurture others so that you feel that overwhelming feeling of love that warms your heart and soul. If you are not a Mom that is ok too. :)))) You can do things like helping out children somewhere, or your friends. You can choose to bond with your furbabies, or spend time nurturing plants in your garden, any activity in which you care for another and allow the exchange of love.
The Crone represents wisdom and knowledge. She has a lifetime of experience and is able to assit others with her knowledge and loving compassion. This is truly a stage of life to be honored. While those of us in the previous stages may not have the life knowledge to pass along, we can help others with the life knowledge that we have gained. This is a time for study and research, doing those activities that help to fulfill your quest for knowledge. Some examples of activities to honor the Crone within you include reading, taking classes, exploring topics you want to, museums, fine art, anything that gives you additional knowledge.
When you honor the three aspects within yourself consistently, you will lead a more balanced life. It's very important that we take the time to do all three, have fun, love, and gain wisdom. :)))) It also brings us closer to the Goddess by remembering to honor the Goddess that lies within us all. :)))
