Turkish Wind God  

Posted by Stella Clark

Turkish Wind God Cover
Wind symbolised a mischievous, sometimes violent character. In some myths, the Wind was represented by a wild horse. Even today, Turks describe thoughtless people or horses as being ‘born of the wind’. Because of his restless character, the Wind could not get along with Earth, Water and sometimes the Fire God. When angry, in the winter he sent down snowstorms and in the summer hurricanes, bringing misfortune. Therefore, when running into a hurricane, the Turks spat three times. Some illness-bearing spirits appeared as winds and struck people. If during a hunt, the wind destroyed a tent, the hunt was abandoned, as it would be unsuccessful. The hunters returned later to arrange a small prayer, addressed to the master of the forest or mountain. Western and northern winds were considered ominous. In the autumn they brought bad weather: rain, snow and clouds that covered the sun. In January and February there were some very windy days and these months were called ‘Jil Aiy’, months of wind. The Altai would plea with Umai: “Do not admit malicious spirits nor an evil wind!” The wind was perceived as a 'stroke' from the other world and a breeze was cause for discomfort, as it might prove an ‘envoy of the lower world’. The ancient Turks esteemed the Wind God and in His honour the Turks constructed a temple called ‘Dispersing the Clouds’. The Turks visited this temple before a military campaign and made sacrifices when asking for a victory.

Wind, as one of the elements of nature, creates a situation of change. It not only heralds clouds and storms, but in mythological plots it also brings diseases. Therefore the ‘possession of wind’, a skill to control weather, was one of the characteristics of strong Kams, Yadachi and other sacred persons. Their involvement was required in situations when the elements might cause problems. A light breeze produced by a fan was a part of Tengrian ritual. Blowing a light wind was considered an appeal to the spirits. One of the main movements of a Kam during ceremonies, which involved a tambourine or fan, was spinning around on one’s feet. This movement symbolically represented a whirlwind. The Kam turned clockwise, the same direction taken around sacred birches or fire during a sacrifice. People trusted the Wind God, a force of Nature that gave them energy. At the same time the Turks considered a counter-clockwise whirlwind as being evil. Such a whirlwind could steal the Kut of a man.

Great Gish  

Posted by Stella Clark

Great Gish Cover
Gish or Great Gish was the most popular god of the Nuristani people mythology and received the greatest amount of attention among the Siah-Posh Nuristani of Bashgul. Every village of Bashgul had one or more shrines dedicated to him. Gish was the war-god. His earthly name was Yazid, and he is stated to have killed Ali, Hasan and Husain and nearly every famous Muslim known to the Nuristani. Countless bulls and billy goats were sacrificed each year to him and the drums were beaten in his honor for fifteen continuous days, every spring, by the Nuristani slaves. Every time a Nuristani came home after successfully killing a Muslim, a victory dance was held in honor of Gish. In the Nuristani pantheon, Gish ranked next to Moni who was said to be the chief prophet of Imra. Both Moni and Gish were created by Imra by his breath. H. A. Rose identifies Gish with the Hindu god Kishna or Krishna.

Goddess Nut

Goddess Nut Image
NUT is the Egyptian Goddess of the sky. Her body arches over the world to form the sky, protecting the world from the chaos beyond, with her hands and feet placed at the four cardinal points. When she laughs, we hear thunder; when she cries, we feel the rain. Nut is also the mother of the sun and the stars--every day she gives birth to the sun, every night she gives birth to the stars. After their travels across the sky, she swallows them and they are rejuvenated in her body. This belief gives Nut rule over resurrection. Her image was often painted on the inside of coffins and sarcophagi, so that the deceased could enter her body and be reborn.

Goddess Kuan Yin  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Kuan Yin Cover
SUGGESTED MANTRA: COMPASSION

Kuan Yin's esoteric attributes are those of compassion, healing, and centering. She lives in the heart chakra, standing in full acceptance, suspended in tranquility, relishing joy in the silence.

SUGGESTED AFFIRMATIONS:


~ I radiate love
~ I am tolerant of everyone around me
~ I have great joy, and therefore great energy
~ My peace is shared peace
~ I am weightless and free of burden

Related essences: Rose, musk, jonquil, orange flowers

Related gemstones: Rose quartz, pink tourmaline, emerald (pink or green stones)

Kuan Yin, Mother of Compassion in ancient Chinese culture, blows gently into your life, and should be welcomed as an eternal source of comfort and peace. Kuan Yin's values are about co-operation, sharing, balance, harmony and partnership; she is highly sensitive and aware. Kuan Yin is light and weightless - the qualities that result from highly tuned vales of tolerance and acceptance. What a joy to have Kuan Yin visit you today. Try closing your eyes. Visualize Kuan Yin resting with the world on one shoulder, her cheek resting against it. She sees you, and you are drawn to the love radiating from her heart. She shows you how to take the world from your shoulders, hold it in your hands, and dance in joyful, carefree circles. You see the earth's water rippling, the leaves in the trees blowing, the birds soaring without effort. Know this is happening purely thanks to your joy. When you walk through each day, remember Kuan Yin's presence whenever you see the soaring birds, the rustling leaves, the rippling waters. Use these triggers as a reminder to take the world off your shoulders, and to dance with abandon, with your face to the skies and your arms in the air.

Kuan Yin represents the “Br” in Breva, Breath and Breathing and the Brevity of the mortal life; North direction, Face front, holds the stillness and contemplation of the Winter Season.

Kuan Yin represents vegetarianism in many cultures and one possibly unwanted side effect of communicating with her is that it may become difficult for you to eat meat products. She seems to love flowers- especially orchids and lotus blossoms- and her energy (along with Reiki) has saved many of my houseplants. Her energy seems to create this force of feeling the oneness with all creatures and a deep compassion. I find myself touching trees that have been cut down and sharing tears with them. Dogs are drawn and curious when you connect with her. Children and babies stare and actively want your attention. Water is a powerful catalyst for her energy and I find that the deepest connections happen with Her when I am taking a bath. I play music that has natural sounds of streams, ocean waves, and rivers and also recordings of Japanese flute and piano when I visit with her. Sometimes we dance to them together and sometimes we sit in stillness.

Her energetic presence is particularly strong and available to us right now because of Her commitment to, as her name represents, “Hear the cries of the world.” In Her deep embodiment of compassion for the needy, we are given a template for the force of care and compassion that is needed to move us out of the dark place we are in as a human species in which so much of our kind is in need and suffering. She reminds us of our connection to each other, in an infinite place of Oneness where individual personality is transcended and the spark of divine humanity that lives in us all is palpable, experiential, and deeply remembered.

Kuan Yin offers us an initiation into this core center of our be-ingness as women. She holds us as our busy mind thrashes out and releases its pent up information and sensory overload. As our emotional core vents out pain, grief, rage, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, frustration that we have collected during our lifetime that didn’t get the space from us or with others to be processed at the time it was felt and so gets stuck inside of us, clogging up our emotional plumbing system, making slow and difficult digestion of any new emotional triggers that we feel; She supports us, guides us, and gives us loving advice when we are lost or in pain. She models for us an inner strength that comes from the depths of our yin stillness and not solely from our capacities to achieve, influence, or do things.

She offers us a clean and loving and compassionate model of a spiritual teacher. A teacher who isn’t interested in power over us or getting us to follow her method or way of seeing the world. Kuan Yin is the teaching and we learn from allowing ourselves to be still around her, take her in, and humbly surrender to her reflections and guidance with us. She models for us being deeply committed to our spiritual and emotional growth and a growing closeness with the Divine Mother and Father and yet, at the same time, remaining detached about and letting go of the outcome and result of our spiritual practice, efforts, and energy. She offers us to be for the sake of being, for the sake of knowing and being close with the Divine. For the arising possibilities and not for the known answers. For the experience and process and not the product and the outcome.

Goddess Mefitis  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Mefitis Image
MEFITIS is the Samnite Goddess of the foul-smelling gases of the earth. The Samnites occupied central Italy before the rise of Rome. Mephitis was worshipped in central and southern Italy before Roman times, with her main shrine in the volcano Ampsanctus in Samnium. There was a temple dedicated to her in Cremona, and another on the Esquiline Hill in Rome. It is theorized that Mefitis was originally a Goddess of underground sources, such as natural springs--the fact that many of these springs were sulfurous led to her association with noxious gases. She is almost always identified with volcanoes, having been worshipped at Pompeii. Her name, which likely means "one who smokes in the middle," is also seen as MEPHITIS.

Dinka Goddess Abuk Cover
ABUK is the Dinka Goddess of water and gardens. Abuk and her husband Garang were the first people in the mythology of the Dinka people of Sudan. The Creator allowed them to each plant one seed of grain each day, and this was enough to satisfy their needs. One day, however, Abuk grew greedy, and while she was planting more grain, she accidentally struck the Creator on the toe. He was so angry with her that he withdrew from the earth. Since that time, Abuk has had responsibility for all growing things and the water they need.

Tumatauenga  

Posted by Stella Clark

Tumatauenga Cover
Tu or Tumatauenga is one of the great gods, and the origin of war. All war-parties were dedicated to him, and he was treated with the greatest respect and awe. He is usually a son of the primordial parent, sky and earth. In a Te Arawa version, Tumatauenga advises his brothers to kill their parents Rangi and Papa in order to allow light and space into the world, but the kinder proposal of Tane is accepted and instead the primordial pair are forced apart. Tumatauenga thinks about the actions of Tane in separating their parents, and makes snares to catch the birds, the children of Tane, who can no longer fly free. He then makes nets, and traps the children of Tangaroa. He makes hoes to dig the ground, capturing his brothers Rongo and Haumia-tiketike, heaping them into baskets to be eaten. The only brother that Tumatauenga cannot subdue completely is Tawhirimatea, whose storms and hurricanes attack humankind to this day because of his indignation at the actions of his brothers. Although Rangi and Papa were not human in form, Tumatauenga and his brothers were. Humankind - the descendants of Tu - increased upon the earth, until the generation of Maui and his brothers. Tumatauenga's actions provide a pattern for human activities. Because Tumatauenga defeated his brothers, people can now, if they perform the appropriate rituals, kill and eat birds (the children of Tane), fish (the children of Tangaroa), cultivate and harvest food plants (the children of Rongo and Haumia-tiketike), and generally harness the resources of the natural world. Tumatauenga is also the originator of warfare, and people make war now because Tumatauenga provided the example. When rituals were performed over warriors before a battle, or when an infant was dedicated to a future role as a fighter, Tumatauenga was invoked as the source of their duty. The body of the first warrior to fall in a battle was often offered up to Tumatauenga. While Tumatauenga is the origin of war, powerful local deities such as Kahukura, Maru or Uenuku were also called upon in time of war.

Goddess Dhumavati  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Dhumavati Image
DHUMAVATI is the Hindu Goddess of widows. She is one of the Mahavidyas, the wisdom Goddesses. Dhumavati embodies unsatisfied desires--she is always hungry and thirsty. She is one of the avatars of Parvati, Shiva's mate. In one myth relating her origin, when Parvati was manifested as Sati, Shiva's first wife, on one occasion she asked Shiva for some food because she was extremely hungry. Shiva refused to give her any food, so she ate him instead, widowing herself. Shiva persuaded her to spit him back up, and he cursed her to remain in the form of Dhumavati, the widow.

In another telling of her origin, Dhumavati is said to have arisen from the smoke when Sati immolated herself. Her eyes burn with the fire that consumed Sati. Dhumavati symbolizes the power of nature over all other forces, and the fact that death is inevitable. She is usually depicted riding in a chariot, on which crows or vultures perch. She is old and ugly, wearing a dress taken from a corpse. Dhumavati's name means "the smoky one", and other names for her include JYESTHA, DARIDRA (poverty), VIDHAVA (widow), NIRRTI (misery), and ALAKSHMI (misfortune).

Goddess Amaterasu

Goddess Amaterasu Image
Amaterasu was the Sun goddess and supreme deity of the oldest of the Japanese religions--Shinto. Her name means "Great Shining Goddess of Heaven. She was a beautiful and compassionate goddess who ruled both the sun and the heavenly fields of rice that fed the Japanese people. She was the daughter of Izaanami and Izanagi, the divine couple who created the lands, and legend has it that she was the divine ancestor of the Japanese imperial family. She and Her brothers, Susano-o, the storm god and Tsuki-yomi, the moon god, shared the power of governing the universe. As the sun goddess, she was responsible for illuminating the world and for insuring the fertility of the rice fields.

Now, according to one myth, Susano-o was a bothersome, uncontrollable character and very jealous of his beautiful sister's power and popularity. It is said that one day, in a drunken rampage, he trampled all of Her rice fields, filled in all of Her irritation ditches, and then threw excrement into Her palace. He slaughtered a young horse and threw its carcass at the goddesses' handmaidens. Amaterasu, depressed and grieving over Her brother's actions, refused to return to the heavens and crept away into a dark cave in the mountains, refusing to come out. She closed off the entrance with an enormous stone.

Without Her, there was no sun, and the world lay in darkness. The rice fields lay dying as the endless night continued, the people grew hungry. All of the gods and goddesses came to the entrance of Her cave and pleaded with Her to come out, but, alas, Her sadness was so great that their pleas went unanswered. It was then that the goddess Uzume decided to try a different tactic--laughter. She began to perform a divine striptease. Hearing all of the music and laughter, She became so curious about what was going on that She had to see what was going on. She crept to the entranceway of the cave. As She crept further out, the gods captured Her and sealed the entrance to the cave so that She could not return, but by now, She didn't care. Her grief was alleviated by all of the fun and good humor surrounding Her, and eventually, She returned home and the sun once again shined across the earth.

The triumph of the sun goddess over the storm god secured Her rule over the world. On December 21st, the Japanese Winter Solstice festivities will celebrate Her emergence from cave...

The Charge Of The God 5

The Charge Of The God 5 Cover
This is the second Charge of the God I have.

Listen to the words of the God, who is the son, brother, lover, and consort of the Lady:

I am the fleet deer in the forest,
I am the beach which receives the waves,
I am the sun which warms the earth.
I am the Lord of the Spiral Dance of Life,
Death and Rebirth, the gentle reaper,
the Winter stag and the Spring fawn.
All things are of me, for
I am of the Goddess, opposite, yet not opposing.
I bring birth forth from the womb that is a tomb,
for I am the seed which fertilizes.
I am abundant Life, for
I am the grain that grows and
I am death, the harvest in the Fall.
And I am rebirth after darkness, for
I am the seed that springs forth anew.
I am fertility, the spreader of Life, and
I am the Lord of Death, which adds value to life.
I am the Guardian of the gate between Life and Death.
I am King of the Underworld, where no living being may venture, but I am also the King of Rebirth, turning the tomb into a womb.
I bring love and strength, peace and passion, hope and joy, for
I am the gentle lover in the night.
All that I am comes from the Great Mother,
the Divine Star Goddess, who is Mother of us all.

"IN GREEK MYTHOLOGY, CALLISTO "WAS A NYMPH; HER NAME MEANS "MOST BEAUTIFUL", "AND SHE WAS TRUE TO HER NAME...A LOVELY YOUNG MAIDEN. SHE WAS ASSOCIATED WITH ARTEMIS, THE GODDESS OF THE HUNT, AND, AS SUCH, NOT ONLY HUNTED WITH THE GODDESS, BUT ALSO PROMISED TO REMAIN A VIRGIN JUST AS THE GODDESS HERSELF, AND CALLISTO HELD THESE IDEALS FAITHFULLY. AS A RESULT, SHE SOON BECAME ONE OF ARTEMIS'S FAVORITES.

THE, ONE DAY, HER BEAUTY HAPPENED TO CATCH THE EYE OF ZEUS, AND HE KNEW IMMEDIATELY THAT HE JUST HAD TO HAVE HER. BUT, HE ALSO KNEW THAT AS ARTEMIS COMPANION, SHE HAD TAKEN THE VOW OF CHASTITY, SO HE KNEW THAT HE WOULD HAVE TO RESORT TO DECEPTION. HE CAME TO THE BEAUTIFUL NYMPH DISGUISED AS ARTEMIS AND GAINED HER CONFIDENCE SO THAT SHE LET HER GUARD DOWN.

CALLISTO BECAME PREGNANT AS A RESULT; SHE TRIED DESPERATELY TO HIDE IT FROM ARTEMIS, BUT EVENTUALLY, SHE COULD HIDE IT NO MORE. WHEN ARTEMIS SAW HER SWOLLEN BELLY, SHE THREW A FIT AND BANISHED CALLISTO TO HAVE HER CHILD ALONE....AND IT WAS THEN THAT THE JEALOUS HERA DECIDED TO TAKE HER REVENGE. SHE GRABBED CALLISTO BY THE HAIR AND FLUNG HER TO THE GROUND, TRANSFORMING THE YOUNG NYMPH INTO A BEAR. HERA THEN WENT TO ARTEMIS AND TRIED TO CONVINCE HER THAT CALLISTO WAS A MERE NORMAL BEAR AND THAT THE GODDESS WOULD SLAY HER; BUT HERMES INTERVENED AND SAVED THE BABE, ARCAS (BEAR), BY TAKING HIM FROM FROM HIS MOTHER'S WOMB...THEN BRINGING THE BABE TO HIS OWN MOTHER, MAIA, TO BE RAISED. ZEUS ALSO CAME TO CALLISTO'S RESCUE AND TURNED HER INTO THE CONSTELLATION, ARCTOS...THE GREAT SHE BEAR OR URSA MAJOR. THIS WAS A SIGN OF HIS LOVE FOR HER; SOON THEREAFTER, SHE WAS JOINED BY HER SON WHO BECAME THE LITTLE BEAR.

AND STILL, HERA CONTINUED TO HOLD A GRUDGE AGAINST CALLISTO; SO, SHE WENT TOTETHYS AND OCEANUS AND PERSUADED THEM NOT TO ALLOW CALLISTO TO ENTER THEIR REALM...THE OCEAN. AND SO IT IS THAT CALISTO MUST FOREVER CIRCLE THE NORTH STAR AND NEVER BE ABLE TO SET OVER THE HORIZON...AND THIS IS WHY THE GREAT BEAR AND THE LITTLE BEAR ARE CURSED TO CIRCLE THE SKIES, NEVER TO DIP BELOW THE HORIZON TO FEEL AN OCEAN WAVE.

The Witches Goddess

The Witches Goddess Cover
An Abbreviated List of World Goddesses from "The Witches' Goddess" by Janet and Stewart Farrar *

- Ambika: Hindu, 'the generatrix,' wife of Shiva or of Rudra.
- Annapurna: Hindu. Goddess who provides food; she lives on top of Mount Annapurna.
- Aditi: ('Limitless') Hindu Mother Goddess, self-formed, the Cosmic Matrix. Mother of the Sun God Mitra and the Moon God Varuna.
- Aphrodite: ('Foam-Born') Greek Goddess of sexual love. She was born of the bloody foam of the sea where Cronus threw the genitals of his father Uranus after castrating him. Married, on Zeus's orders, to the lame Smith God Hephaestus, and unfaithful to him with the war God Ares. She was in fact an ancient East Mediterranean Goddess and can be equated with Astarte.
- Ariadne: Cretan and Greek. The daughter of King Minos of Crete, who with her her cunning thread helped Theseus find his way into the labyrinth to kill the Minotaur, and out again. She eloped with him, but he abandoned her on the island of Naxos. She was consoled by Dionysus, who in her Naxos cult was regarded as her consort.
- Arachne: Greek Spider Goddess. A Lydian girl skilled in weaving, she dared to challenge Athene to compete with her. The contest was held, and Arachne's work was faultless: impudently, it portrayed some of the Gods' less reputable deeds, including Athene's father Zeus abducting Europa. Furious, Athene turned her into a spider, doomed eternally to spin thread drawn from her own body. But the Spider Goddess is more archetypal than this story suggests: spinning and weaving the pattern of destiny like the Moerae or the Norns, and enthroned in the middle of her spiral-pathed stronghold like Arianrhod. Athene here represents Athenian patriarchal thinking, trying to discipline earlier Goddess-concepts.
- Aradia: Italian (Tuscany) Witch Goddess, surviving there into this century. Daughter of Diana and Diana's brother Lucifer (i.e. of the Moon and Sun), she came to Earth to teach the witches her mother's magic.
- Arianrhod: ('Silver Wheel') Major Welsh Goddess. Mother of Llew Llau Gyffes by her brother Gwydion. Her consort Nwyvre ('Sky, Space, Firmament') has survived in name only. Caer Arianrhod is the circumpolar stars, to which souls withdraw between incarnations; she is thus a Goddess of reincarnation. Honoured at the Full Moon.
- Artemis: Greek Nature and Moon Goddess. Daughter of Zeus and Leto, and twin sister of Apollo (though a day older). She probably absorbed a pre-Indo-European Sun Goddess, and her twinning in classical legend with the Sun God Apollo may stem from this. The Greeks assimilated her to a pre-Greek mistress of wild beasts. Bears were sacred to her, and she was associated with the constellation Ursa Major.
- Athena: Greek, a Warrior Goddess, yet also one of intelligence and the arts of peace. Protector of towns, above all of Athens.
- Astarte: Canaanite version of Ishtar; fertility goddess. Chief goddess of Tyre and Sidon. Astarte was also the Greek form of the name Ashtart. Tends to merge with Asherat and Anat, and with the Egyptian Hathor. She came to Egypt; Rameses II built a temple honoring her, and she and Isis were said to be firm friends.
- Bean-Nighe: ('Washing Woman') Scottish and Irish. Haunts lonely streams washing the bloodstained garments of those about to die.
- Befana: ('Epiphany') Italian Witch Fairy who flies her broomstick on Twelfth Night to come down chimneys and bring presents to children.
- Banshee: (Bean Sidhe , 'Woman Fairy') Irish. Attached to old Irish families ('the O's and the Mac's'), she can be heard keening sorrowfully near the house when a member of the family is about to die. Still very much believed in, and heard.
- Bast: Egytian Cat Goddess of Bubastis in the Delta. Originally lion-headed, she represented the beneficient power of the Sun, in contrast to Sekhmet who personified its destructive power.
- Binah: ('Understanding') Hebrew. The Supernal Mother, third Sephirah of the Cabalistic Tree of Life. She takes the raw directionless energy of Chokmah, the Supernal Father (the second Sephira), and gives it form and manifestation; she is thus both the Bright Mother, Aima (nourishing) and the Dark Mother, Ama (constricting).
- Brighid, Brigid, Brigit, Brid: Irish Goddess of Fertility and Inspiritation, daughter of the Dagda; called 'the poetess.' Often triple ('The Three Brigids'). Her characteristics, legends and holy places were taken over by the historical St Bridget.
- Bona Dea: ('Good Goddess') Roman Earth Goddess of Fertility, worshipped only by women; even statues of men were covered where her rites took place.
- Callisto: ('Most Beautiful') Greek Moon Goddess, to whom the she-bear was sacred in Arcadia. Envisaged as the axle on which everything turns, and thus connected with the Ursa Major constellation. Linked with Artemis, often called Artemis Callisto.
- Cailleach Beine Brick: A Scottish legendary witch probably recalling an earlier local goddess.
- Carman: Irish. Wexford Goddess, whence Gaelic name of Wexford, Loch Garman (Loch gCarman).
- Clota: Scottish. Goddess of the River Clyde.
- Cybele: Greek. Originally Phrygian, finally merged with Rhea. Goddess of Caverns, of the Earth in its primitive state; worshipped on mountain tops. Ruled over wild beasts. Also a Bee Goddess.
- Cerridwen: Welsh Mother, Moon and Grain Goddess, wife of Tegid and mother of Creirwy (the most beautiful girl in the world) and Avagdu (the ugliest boy). Owner of an inexhaustible cauldron called Amen, in which she made a magic draught called 'greal' ('Grail?') from six plants, which gave inspiration and knowledge.
