If there is a Goddess or Deity that you want to connect with, there are some basic concepts that you should start exploring.
-Where in the world did this Goddess come from?
-What was/is this part of the world like?
-What was/is the culture of this part of the world like?
-How was/is She worshiped?
These questions are the first steps in learning about a Goddess; the "big picture" of who She is and where She comes from.
Any Goddess is more than just an idea or an archetype. She is an energy that has grown and developed over time. Where is Her origin? What were the lives of the first peoples who worshiped Her like? The more of the picture that you can fill in, the deeper your understanding of this Deity will be.
When you have the cultural context you can take it down to a more modern and personal experience. Now you can start to explore how modern Paganism might have given different correlations or connections to this Deity (i.e. Arianrhod, from the Welsh pantheon is now often connected to the Moon, but in her origins She was a Goddess of the sky). How do other Pagans worship this Goddess? Perhaps even attend rituals in Her honor. And don't forget to take stock of your own experiences as well. How do your own connections match (or differ) from what others might experience?
Building your personal relationship with a Deity can look many ways, here are a few steps to get you started:
-Build an altar in Her honor.
-Spend time in devotion.
-Make her offerings
-Visit Her in trance journeys.
-Hold rituals in Her honor.
-Travel to Her country of origin.
The more time you spend connecting to a Goddess the deeper your relationship will develop. This is just like building a relationship with another human being; it takes time and effort.
These concepts are what we explore every month at Goddess Gatherings. And we love to hear about your own personal experiences and the relationships you've developed with different Divine Ones.
