As the oldest form of worship, of feelings of awe, were in regard to the woman and her ability to give birth, goddess worship was probably the first human religion. It recognised the miraculous power resident in a woman’s being, the bloodiness and wonder of an emerging new life, and the close link this had with death. Such powerful responses are still very much part of our inner life. The goddess still walks among us. For each woman who is a mother is a goddess, having given birth to Life. See: Goddess–holy oriental woman under woman.

Black Hole Creationb

As a woman you have innate in you the power to create a new life. A woman is only incidentally part of the creative act of childbirth. The processes of creation are far deeper than her personality. So she cannot say this is my body and my fetus, and so I can do what I want with it.

In a woman’s dream: The unconscious connection you have has with all women, and all female creatures. The power of the collective psyche underlying your personality; the mysterious connections with nature and the forces of nature the woman is in tune with through menstruation, child bearing and mothering. Also you are always the heroine of your own life. You are the central character of your own drama of experience. As such you are the deed doer, the heroine or fallen goddess, especially when the dream is portraying dramatic life events.

You are a goddess: We are all deities. As it says very clearly in Genesis, “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: … So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

So we are all the image of God – Unfortunately we live in a world that denies it. See Big Bang

In a man’s dream: Your collective sense of women as a whole and not as individuals; personal fear of female power, usually relating to early experience of your mother; your capacity to love in a transcendent way. See Archetype of the Goddess
