Katie needs a goddess that will help her see what her heart truly wants. She needs the Egyptian goddess of truth, Maat.
The Egyptians believed that your soul rested in your heart. As such, it was the repository of all your deeds, good and bad. When you died, Maat would weigh your heart. A heart that was not weighed down by sins and inequity would weigh less than a feather. If you somehow managed to have such a heart than lucky you. You'd get to party in the underworld forever. If your heart weighed more than a feather...well...it's important to remember that impermanence helps us appreciate that beauty that is life.
Maat reminds us that what rests in your heart is the sum of your actions. You want to know what you want? Take a look at what you've down. Don't like what you see? Be gentle with yourself, and then, as they say in the States, be the change. But I can't believe you won't like what you see Katie. You're fabulous!
Need a goddess? I got goddesses! Post a comment explaining what you need or want a goddess. Then check back in a week or two and see what you got. It's fun. It's free. Plus, zero calories! What more do you want.
I like to think of this blog as a virtual sort of spa day or night out with friends. We relax, we laugh, and we get a little perspective from the goddesses and wise women who've come before us. So exhale, slip off your shoes, and turn off the phone. It's time to Begin Again.
