A good and enigmatic friend of mine pointed me to a blog post by the SeventhSisteroftheStars entitled “Incarnates of Aphrodite: A new ancient breed of Goddess.”
This is a post worth reading.
I feel the incarnate is no new evolution. She has always been with us, to heal us when we needed healing. To love us when we needed loving. She is a capacitor of love with boundless ability to store love’s energy. She is a being of the universe, and beyond it. She is of the elements, earth, air, water and fire. Like nature, she is constantly changing, and yet she is changeless.
Rather, it is we who are evolving. We who are re-tuning our senses as we begin to focus once again on the spiritual; the natural, the unnatural and the supernatural. When we sit for a moment in silence and listen while the universe moves, suddenly we see her and realize she was there all along.
Once discovered, do not be alarmed by the passionate and creative creature you find. She is worthy of worship, but do not attempt to worship her. She is too well grounded to accept so lofty a position. Do not attempt to contain her, she will not be confined. May as well try to catch a hummingbird in your hand.
Instead, if you wish to know an incarnate in your life, be true in how you love and are loved. Recognize the darkness and the light in your heart and embrace both. Incarnates are healers drawn to positive energy. Take in her energy if she offers it to you (never demand it!), make something positive of the gift, and return it to her. She will respond.
Most importantly, do not be afraid to be changed by her. One cannot be touched by an incarnate of the Goddess on Earth and expect to ever be the same afterwards. Breathe in the Now, and so be transformed. And consider yourself blessed.
