Unlocking Divine Visions Through Meditation

how to see goddess during meditation

The concept of a goddess can be very abstract, so using a guided meditation can be a great way to connect with the divine feminine. There are many goddesses to choose from, each with its own unique energy and wisdom, from Kali, the fiery goddess that embodies the powers to set us free from any shackle that binds us, to Chinnamasta, a goddess who has cut off her own head to represent our unconditional and totally free spirit. There are also many ways to meditate, from mindfulness to guided visualizations, and mantra meditation to focusing on a candle.

To connect with the goddess during meditation, it is important to first find a quiet place and mentally surround yourself with silence. Then, begin to slow your breath, letting your breath carry you deeper and deeper within. As you inhale and exhale, imagine yourself walking along a pathway that leads you further and further away from civilization and into the heart of a primeval forest. Soon, you will come across a tiny, crumbling stone sanctuary, a place so old and hidden that it has been forgotten by time. As you push open the door, something old and timeless opens within your soul. Inside, you will find a statue of a female deity, the Goddess. Kneeling before her in reverence, you will be embraced by her being, and your worries will fall away. The statue then comes alive, and the chapel fills with a warm and golden light. Now, the ancient mother comes alive, and you gaze into each other’s eyes. Held within her arms, you become like a little child with its mother. Going deeper into this experience, you begin to feel as if the body of the ancient mother is the gateway to the body of creation itself—the earth, the stars, the planets, and the galaxies.

Begin in a quiet place, imagining yourself walking away from civilisation and into nature

As you continue on the path, you come across a tiny, crumbling stone sanctuary. It is so old and hidden that it seems forgotten by time. No one has entered this chapel in centuries, perhaps even millennia. As you push open the door, something stirs within you—a feeling of mystery and deep familiarity.

Inside, you find yourself in a sacred and holy place. Vaulted ceilings arch over a rough, stone altar. Candles burn, filling the air with their fragrance, and incense smoke curls towards a statue of a female deity—the Goddess. Her face is weathered and dark, her form worn smooth by the touch of praying hands. She is the Mother, god as a woman, the one to whom the world turns in its grief and suffering.

Kneeling before her, you bow your head in prayer. In this moment, you are enveloped by her loving acceptance, your worries and faults soothed by her embrace. As you gaze upon the statue, it suddenly comes alive, and you find yourself in the presence of the living mother of all creation.

The chapel fills with a warm and golden light as the ancient mother's face becomes animated with feeling. Seated before her, you lock eyes, and she penetrates your soul with a glance. Waves of sweetness, mercy, and loving forgiveness wash over you, healing your hurts and wounds. Cradled in her arms, you become like a child with its mother, embracing her with loving affection.

As you go deeper into this experience, you begin to sense that the body of the ancient mother is a gateway to the body of creation itself. Beyond her form lies the body of the earth—its creatures, trees, oceans, rivers, mountains, and people. And even beyond the earth, the body of the ancient mother expands into the universe, becoming the stars, planets, and galaxies that stretch across the cosmos.

Held in the womb of this mystery, you feel a powerful force, a holy energy, and the breath of life itself. Your heartbeat syncs with the rhythm of the universe, and you are filled with a profound sense of connection and peace.

Visualise an ancient, crumbling sanctuary and enter

Vaulted ceilings arch over a rough, stone altar at the front. Candles are burning, and the smell of fragrant incense fills the air. On the altar stands a statue of the female deity, the Goddess. Her face is so old and dark with age, the lines on her body so worn from the touch of praying hands that you cannot even tell what religion she belongs to. She is simply the Mother, God as a woman, the one to whom the world turns in all its grief and suffering. She is the Divine Feminine, the Divine Mother, the Great Mother, the Mother of Life, the Creatrix of all that is, was, and will be.

Kneeling before her in reverence, you bow your head in prayer. Immediately, you are embraced by her being, and the cares and worries of the world fall away, soothed in her loving acceptance of all your human faults and frailties. Going deeper into your meditation, the statue you are praying to suddenly comes alive as a real being, and now you find yourself before the mystery of the living mother of all creation.

As she comes to life, the chapel fills with a warm and golden light. Now, the face of the ancient mother becomes animated with feeling. Seated before her, you gaze into each other's eyes. She penetrates your soul with a glance that loves you to the core of your very being. Emotions of sweetness, mercy, and loving forgiveness emanate from her, sweeping over you in waves of bliss, healing all the parts of you that are hurt, broken, and wounded. Held within her arms, taken onto her lap, you become like a little child with its mother. You touch her hair and her face in loving affection, and feel her loving affection for you in return.

Kneel and pray, feeling embraced by her being

Kneeling in prayer is an act of humility, reflecting obedience to a higher power. It is not always the easiest action to perform, requiring effort and surrender. This act of surrender is a way of communicating reverence and need for healing.

In this instance, you are kneeling before the Divine Mother, the Goddess. She is the embodiment of the divine feminine, Mother Nature, the Earth, Gaia. She is the cycle of birth, life, death, and regeneration. She is the Creatrix of all that is, was, and will be.

As you kneel before her, you are enveloped in her loving acceptance. She soothes your worries and embraces your human faults and frailties. Her glance loves you to your core, and you feel emotions of sweetness, mercy, and forgiveness washing over you. She holds you like a child, and you touch her face and hair with loving affection, feeling her love in return.

You are now one with the Goddess, and you feel her power as the gateway to the body of creation itself. You are in communion with the body of the earth—all her creatures, trees, oceans, rivers, mountains, cities, and people. Beyond the earth, you sense her body expanding into the universe, becoming the stars, planets, and galaxies.

You feel a powerful force, holy energy, and the breath of life—the soul of the cosmos. Your heartbeat is in rhythm with the rhythm of life itself. You are filled with her cherishing, nourishing, and life-sustaining love.

Witness the statue come alive, filling the room with a golden light

As you kneel before the statue of the goddess, you feel a sense of reverence and peace. Closing your eyes, you begin to breathe deeply, in through your nose and out through your mouth. With each breath, you feel yourself sinking deeper into a calm and meditative state.

Opening your eyes, you focus on the statue before you. You see the face of the ancient mother, a face that is both old and timeless. Her form is that of a woman, but she embodies all—she is the Mother Nature, the Earth, the cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth. She is the Divine Feminine, the Creatrix of all that is, was, and will be.

As you continue to breathe and focus your gaze on the statue, you witness an extraordinary transformation. The statue begins to glow with a radiant light, a golden hue that fills the entire room. The goddess comes alive, her face animated with emotion. She looks at you with eyes that see into your soul, and you feel enveloped in her loving embrace.

The golden light that emanates from her surrounds you, filling you with a sense of warmth and protection. It is as if you are bathed in the light of the sun, but this light brings with it a sense of peace and healing. You understand that this light represents the divine energy that flows through all living things, and in this moment, you are connected to that universal force.

As you sit in the presence of the goddess, you feel your worries and cares melting away. The golden light shines upon you, illuminating the path to self-awareness and enlightenment. It is a sign that your mind, body, and spirit are in a state of healing and transformation.

With each breath, you inhale the golden light, filling your entire being with its positive and healing energy. As you exhale, you release any negative thoughts or emotions, allowing the light to purify and cleanse your mind, body, and spirit.

Frequently asked questions

There are many ways to connect with a goddess during meditation. One way is to use a guided meditation that focuses on visualising a deity. This can help bring meaning to an abstract concept.

First, find a quiet place to sit and focus on your breath. Imagine yourself walking away from civilisation and into a forest. You then come across a crumbling stone sanctuary with a statue of a female deity inside. Kneel before the statue and pray, and imagine the statue coming alive. Gaze into the goddess's eyes and feel her loving acceptance. Feel yourself becoming a part of her and the world around you.

There are many goddesses to choose from, depending on what you want to focus on. For example, Kali is a popular goddess that represents the creation of the universe and the power to set us free from any shackles that bind us. Tara is a three-eyed goddess that symbolises our potential to become enlightened.

If you are unsure which goddess to connect with, you can try a meditation where you visualise yourself in a Roman museum standing before ten gods and goddesses. Then, in a commanding voice, say, "All of you leave except for my god or goddess! My god or goddess, approach me!" See which deity steps forward and describe them in as much detail as possible. You can then research their characteristics to identify them.

Connecting with a goddess during meditation can help you feel a sense of peace, love, and acceptance. It can also be a way to explore your divine feminine energy and contemplate the different aspects of the Mother.
