Be unafraid of the darker energies when you inevitably come across them. Call it listlessness, depression, apathy or circumstance, but Persephone's message is to make friends with all aspect of your self - including that side of your persona that doesn't normally see the light of day.

I am me
I accept myself as I am
I am good and I know it
I believe in my gifts and abilities
I release my habit of self-criticism
Whether Light or Dark, I find my spark
Persephone (pronounced Purr-sef-own-ee) was the daughter of Demeter abducted by Hades and taken to the underworld. In her bleak surroundings she took on a dark and mysterious persona as his new wife.
Although found by her mother and freed on the condition that she had eaten nothing whilst imprisoned, it traspired that she had indeed eaten some pomegranate seeds. She was obliged thereafter to return to the underworld thereby dividing her time between her mother and her dark lover, choosing to go to both places of her own volition.
Her Modern Energy
Persophone is the maiden goddess symbolising power borne from vulnerability... she was flung into an adverse situation and forced to cope. In facing this adversity, she was able to step into her true, personal power.
Just as Persephone came to accept her life shared between the worlds of darkness and the light, so can you. Quit being ashamed or annoyed when you are unable to function at your full potential - by finding self-acceptance you can fulfil your potential. Make friends with all aspects of your personality to become a glorious drama-less Queen.
Reconnect With Your Inner Persephone
Accept that energy comes in light and dark and all shades in between, and learn to make the most of every situation. Spend today acknowledging truths, honouring those who are trying to help you, and showing gratitude for all the "good" in your life. Come out from the darkness and turn your face to the light.
Today, write down five things you are grateful for. It could be the sunrise you caught this morning, the toast your partner made you, or seeing children skipping to school - whatever it is that makes you feel glad to be alive. When you wake up tomorrow, add to the list with another five things. Keep adding to the list every day until your heart is glowing with gratitude and joy - let the healing energy empower you in your new life.
What Would Persephone Do?
Persephone was the maiden of spring that was kidnapped to the underworld by Hades.
If she were in your situation, she would not see hardship as a reason to give up. Instead she would see this place as a potential Queendom!
She would accept her shadow side as an integral part of her whole Self in order to strengthen her personal power. (Excerpt from What Would Goddess Do? A Journal For Channelling Divine Guidance)

Meet the Author: The Goddess DIET
Margaret River Bookshop, Sat 30 June
Help! This event was only organised recently so we haven't had a chance to advertise in the local newspapers. If you know of anyone in the South West of Western Australia who may be interested in attending this event, please forward this information to them. A thousand thank-you(s) in advance...
EVENT: Meet the author: The Goddess DIET. Anita Revel is talking about her newest book, "The Goddess DIET, See a Goddess in the Mirror in 21 Days," at the Margaret River Bookshop on Saturday 30 May from 4pm.
Foodies rejoice! No more dangerous dieting; no more trash talking; no more self-loathing... When Anita Revel lost her libido, her self-respect and her aspiration to get another season out of her bikini, she embarked on a life-changing process to find her goddess within. In creating The Goddess DIET, she found dozens of Daily Intentional Empowerment Tools ('DIET') to realign her physical, emotional and spiritual behaviours for holistic well-being. The Goddess DIET works because it connects the three crucial relationships between body, mind and spirit for a healthy self-esteem. Lose your inner critic, gain more energy and fall in self-love.
THE AUTHOR: Anita Revel is the author of the inspirational website, Goddess.com.au, several books and hundreds of articles pertaining to women's well-being. She is also the creatrix of various goddess-inspired products, articles and the inspirational and ever-popular Goddess Playshops.
