Write old wounds and anything you are ready to release on paper. Allow the Goddess Medusa to assist. She is an example of how paralyzing anger, rage and fear can be. Use her energy and strength to help you cut away that which is no longer needed, no longer in your highest and best good. Burn the paper, releasing the energy of the words written on it. Allow the violet flame of transformation to transmute it into healing energy for our Mother Earth to use at her will. Watch the smoke as it releases your mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bindings. Feel the freedom and lightness, the gift of letting go. When the fire is out and the smoke has dissipated, take some deep breaths and fill yourself with the love and healing energy of the Goddess.

Goddess 2 Hygeia: Greek Goddess of Health with African Roots – Preventive health care; maintaining wellness; the need for vigilance in matters of health; physical pleasures. Hygeia invites you to focus on your own health needs. Hygeia’s main message is “prevention is better than cure”. She also invites you to explore the link between mental and emotional states and physical afflictions. Celebrate being an incarnated spirit. Enjoy your body, cherish it, and care for it tenderly. Snakes, which have symbolized healing in many cultures because of their ability to shed their skin and emerge reborn in a new form, are Hygeia’s symbols. Beware of those who seek to cramp your style and depress your spirit. Hygeia may awaken your interest in sex, and passionate encounters may be in the cards.

Cleansing (float flowers in a pool, stream, or lake) Allowing the healing waters of Mother Earth to cleanse and purify, walk through the water. Feel the water as it caresses your body, stripping away the old, unwanted energies and karma, to be reborn. Use the Goddess Hygeia’s symbol of the snake to help you shed your old skin and be reborn anew.

Consecrating and Loving the Body as a Sacred Temple The body is a sacred temple. Consecrate the body by decorating it with henna body art or body paints. While applying the body art; ask the Goddess Hygeia to guild your hand and bless the body. You may want to say or sing loving thoughts. The person whose body is being decorated is to open fully themselves up to and receive the Goddess and the loving energy.
