What do you do to honor the Divine Feminine in your life?

Do you have an altar in your home to the Goddess? Read books, meditate on Her? I am trying to incorporate Her more into my everyday life and am wondering what other Old Time Religion : ) followers do to bring Her into the forefront of their lives.

  • I embrace being a women every day. The divine feminine lives in me & in every woman.

    I am hindu, we believe in the divine mother as an aspect of god. So, during meditation i will sometimes try to meditate with the divine mother as my guide & embrace her nurturing love & compassion.

  • I do not have a permanent alter in my home because my DH is afraid of the idea... But I do meditate daily and do a small daily devotional as well. In addition I do other small things through the day - prayer & chants while cooking or cleaning, dancing w/my kids to Pagan songs, small offerings and other little things...

  • I have an alter in my home. I honor Bast daily. I also have beenhonoring Thoth. I think it is wise to honor the feminine and masculine. It does take two. That's my personal thought.

  • Thank you everyone for your ideas! I also ordered a book today called Goddess Comapnion: Daily Meditations on the Goddess.

    I plan to do meditations daily along with my incense that I burn. I use the top of the bookcase in my living room as a little altar. It is not obvious to those that are not Pagans though. I have a plant, a couple of sea shells, a candle, a geode, and a couple of other things. In my bedroom I have a small hand-carved statue of a mother holding a child (abstract) that stand for the Goddess to me.
    I agree that honoring the masculine spirit is also important, but I already have a strong connection with the male God, I am trying to focus on the feminine Divine because I have basically been without Her my whole life.

  • I consider myself to BE the embodiment of the divine feminine. Oh, don't act like that shocks you!! I mean really! My inner goddess has helped me to respect myself and appreciate everything I am capable of. She reminds me every day that I am a spark from the divine white light and I am significant.
