You are Your Inner Aphrodite

Barbara Musser, Sexy After Cancer, breast cancer and beauty, meet your Inner Aphrodite

Now that you’ve met your Inner Aphrodite and set up a sacred space to honor her, let’s explore some ways you can nourish her growth and expression in you. Here are some questions to ponder and open some possibilities ~

  • What does Aphrodite represent to you?
  • If you knew you were a goddess, how would you treat yourself?
  • How does Aphrodite dress and adorn herself?
  • How does Aphrodite want to be honored?
  • What will it take for you to know that you are beautiful and desirable?

With these questions in mind, take some time for yourself to sit in a quiet place. Have your journal nearby and prepare yourself to take a little journey into your natural wisdom. Put on some sensual music, light a candle, sit comfortably (preferably in or near the sacred space you have created), and gently close your eyes. Take some deep breaths all the way into your belly, hips and pelvis, and let each exhalation help you to relax and draw you awareness inward.

Now imagine your Inner Aphrodite there with you. Notice how she stands or sits; what she’s wearing; the scent of her and how she breathes, moves and inhabits her body. Ask her what she has to teach you or offer you ~ what she wants you to know about your connection with her and why she is here in and with you.

Notice what comes to you as you sit with Aphrodite. What do you sense, see or know? As you open to receive whatever is here for you, know that what you get is perfect for you. Trust that more will come at just the right time, in just the right ways.

This time of year around Halloween, the new moon, The Day of the Dead and Samhain, is thought to be an auspicious time. In many traditions the teaching is that this is the time when the veils between this material world and the spiritual world is thin. That means that we can more easily access the unseen, unknown and mysterious aspects of life.

In whatever way intuitively feels right to you, open to be nourished in the ways that matter most to your spirit. Drink deeply from the well of feminine wisdom and mystery, knowing that as you invite it, it comes to you.

Sit, breathe and receive for as long as feels right to you. When this transmission from Aphrodite to you feels complete, express your gratitude to her ~ perhaps saying thank you, or bowing at her feet, or feeling the love and thankfulness in your heart as you look into her eyes. Take another deep breath and open  your eyes when you are ready to do so.

Make some notes in your journal so that you can remember this time. Let what you received bathe you in feminine nourishment. When you go to sleep tonight, ask for any additional messages or dreams to come to you.

Feel free to share what you receive so that the Inner Aphrodites can connect and honor one another.
