The Goddess Manifesto is a description of all things feminine – of She being the Healer, the Maiden, the Warrior, the Princess, the Mother, the Crone, the Sorcerer, the Creator, the Daughter, the Queen and the Priestess. It is the manifest that the Feminine was originally meant to be – wild, powerful, free and untameable, understood by every feminine aspect that walked our planet Earth. It is the silent creed of a sisterhood all over the world, bestowed upon the feminine from birth.
Apart from the silent understanding of the driving force within the feminine, there has never been a written Goddess Manifesto upon which to call on. Ancient yet salient, the Goddess Manifesto lays down the intrinsic principles and ideologies that claim the rights of the feminine in every aspect of the woman.
There are no written Goddess Manifestos in any part of the world or in human history. The principles provided below are some of the intrinsic feminine disciplines, modus of living and rule of life that are inherent in the feminine energy since time immemorial. It is about what drove Joan of Arc, the heroine of France, (nicknamed “The Maid of Orléans”), to the Lancastrian phase of the Hundred Years’ War with so much fervour and what set women apart from the typical understanding of what a woman could do.
The Manifesto below is only a Guide to help you heighten the feminine energy with you, that you become more aware of the synergies that make the feminine archetypes. You are all Warrior Goddesses, Queens, Priestesses and Crones with a vast array of knowledge, wisdom and know-how.
The Goddess Manifesto lays down the tools you need to implement in your lives for you to have the best life you possibly can have and to keep you motivated with the know-how that has brought profound changes in the lives of many men and women all over the world. The rules are simple, yet, we always forget to implement them into our daily lives, only because we lack the motivation or the inspiration to apply what we learn. Since we all can’t have motivational gurus by our sides all day long, this Goddess Manifesto was curated as the constant reminder at the back of our minds to live our lives as authentically as possible.
THE PRINCIPLES OF THE GODDESS MANIFESTO
CLAIM YOUR AUTHENTICITY.
The Goddess is the implementation of the divine feminine and She does not follow the masses nor have a particular manner in which She speaks or dresses – She represents Her true calling from deep within Her, regardless of what the world chooses to see in Her. Turn your storms into path finders that pave the way for you rather than letting them disrupt your harmony.
Set Your Heart on Fire. Be your own person.
Imprint your authentic footprints in everything you do. Live without seeking external validation. Stand in your grace. Reinvent yourself every day. State your boundaries.
Express yourself boldly.
EMBODY YOUR SPIRITUALITY.
The Goddess is an abundant vehicle for spiritual wisdom and know-how. From Her, intuition emanates and within Her, wisdom expands. Omnipotent and omniscient, She is capable of creating, destroying and birthing Herself to rise up to the demands of life.
Trust your wisdom. Exemplify your spiritual knowledge. Journal every day.
Contemplate. Work from pure consciousness.
Read. Trust in the process of the Universe.
The wisdom of the Goddess lies within the chambers of contemplation and silence. She focusses on Her inner-knowing, patience and the wisdom of the Universe. She conquers Her quivering mind with Her resolute understanding that everything is created and diminishes with time. Reignite your feminine fire by reclaiming your truth. Break away from the stereotype belief of suppressing your feminine force by attending to your needs, connecting with your desires and doing the things that call to you. Define and defy your darkness as you conquer the places you define as ugly; the parts that trigger pain and conflict; the facets that grip you and summon your sacred potential for therein, lies your sacred power imprisoned in delusion.
Illuminate Your Darkness. Engage in silence often. Listen more, talk less. Meditate.
Spend time alone. Listen to the rhythm of your breath. Fall in love with yourself. Live in the now.
LET GO OF YOUR PAST.
Wounds of the past, inevitably become the foundation of how we conduct ourselves in our present time. Carrying the baggage of our yesteryears, debilitates the significant work that we have been sent here to do. We then move too far away from the shadow of the Goddess within us, as we are buried within many layers of the burden, we claim as life. The work of the Goddess can only be pronounced within empty vessels (our bodies) – allowing the free flow of life to dance and play, that we might be stirred by the downloads and the channelling that our empty vessels provide.
Forgive yourself often. Clear your mind.
Breathe. Cry, so that you master your inner warrior. Reclaim your power every day.
Speak your truth. Conquer your inner demons.
Detachment is the power of the Goddess’s personal desire to launch into higher consciousness. By practicing detachment, the Goddess withdraws Her desire of less important things to give way to Her highest expression.
Curb your desire to engage in negative exercises. Be the observer of your life.
Remove toxic people from your circle. Withdraw from extreme senses.
SEE ONLY THE GOOD IN EVERYONE AND IN EVERYTHING.
One of the most significant beauties of life is being able to see the divinity in people and in the play of life, which allows you to accept that everything is in accordance to the grand plan of the Universe – there are no accidents nor coincidences on planet Earth: everything is destined. When you see the good in everyone and in everything, you allow yourself to shift from a mental perception to a divine perception – becoming one with the seen and the seer.
Practice kindness to everyone you meet. Eradicate judgement of others. Avoid gossips.
Discover the positive intentions of everyone’s actions. Forgive and forget.
Abstinence is usually defined as a practice of restraining, particularly to bodily pleasures. However, abstinence also includes the refraining of engaging in particular habits, mental and behavioural patterns that can bring harmful effects to the Self. You need to discover what liberates you from sensory highs, disengaging from the movements of your unsteady mind.
Exercise your body. Love your body. Refrain from consuming negative substances. Practice love and forgiveness. Control your thoughts.
FAN THE FLAMES OF YOUR TRIBE.
Surround your tribe with people who spur your hunger for life, who engrave your heart with magic, unconditional love and sacred power.
Choose only to be among positive people who spur your thunder.
Saying ‘no,’ to others means, saying ‘yes,’ to you – be comfortable with whom you invite in your life. Incite your tribe, (family, friends or colleagues) with self-love and spiritual upliftment by being the ascended Soul in your life. Bring meaning to everything you do in every parcel of your living.
TRUST YOUR INTUITION.
Listen and trust your inner voice – it is the source of your direction and the voice of the High Priestess within you. She is your guide, your inspiration and the creator of your destiny. Allow Her to lead you by Her hand.
Own your Self so that you live your life’s path according to your own terms. Believe in your potential, no matter how impossible they may be! Take the leap of faith in your Self.
You were born a healer – the antidote of your life. Dive in and find your inner healer and chart your mission of life. Unleash the Wisdom of Your Alchemy.
GLOW IN YOUR FLOW.
The cycles of the planet and our own natural transformation is the way of the Goddess. Everything in and around us is sacred alchemy, waxing and waning with the cycle of life and death. Celebrate the changes in your body with every cycle of the Moon and progression of our environmental development.
Dance to Your Rhythm. The power of creation lies in movement – create your own rhythm, at home, at work and in your relationships.
Embody Your Wildness. Retain your authenticity by staying true to the fire within you. Love courageously, live with reckless abandon and dream big. Honour Your Temple.
Worship your body so that it embodies the Goddess within you, immaterial of what or who you are. Find every reason to celebrate your temple that houses the most sacred feminine power.
May the magick in you find the magic that is YOU!
