Venus of Willendorf

 

Venus of Willendorf, discovered in 1908 by by Josef Szombathy.

1st Week of Autumn, Goddess of the week

This article is part of the Goddesses for Every Season Journey I have decided to take and I am following the book Goddesses for Every Season by Nancy Blair. A year long Journey to meet a different Goddess a week.

The Venus of Willendorf is the Mother of all things. She is the creator and out of her bountiful body she gave birth to all. She is a Goddess of fertility, abundance and sexuality. The Venus of Willendorf figurine is one of the oldest sculptures of a human form that we have found yet and dates back to between 30,000 and 25,000 BCE.

Th Earth Goddess is our Mother and she represents our primordial ancestors and our own earthly womanly bodies. She is here to remind us that we come in all shapes and sizes and to love and listen to our bodies. She will help you to look within to your shadows, especially those linked to self image and not being able to love ourselves. She will help you embrace and accept every part of you. Loving you and who you are, inside and out.

Meditation to connect with Venus of Willendorf

Lie or sit down in a comfortable position. Take three deep breaths, relaxing your whole body. Hold your intention in connecting to Venus of Willendorf. You could say this in your head three times, ‘My intention is to connect with Venus of Willendorf.’

Imagine you are standing outside a cave. This cave is where you will meet Venus of Willendorf, for this is her cauldron of creation, her womb. You enter the cave and slowly walk forwards. It is dark and cool, but it’s comforting. Even though you can not see you know you are safe to keep walking forward. You then stop as you feel this is the right place to and as soon as you stop you hear a voice. ‘Welcome child, I am Venus of Willendorf, the Mother of all. You are inside my womb, where everything is created. This is a place you can feel safe and secure. I will comfort you when you need it and help you through your self work.’ You do feel very comforted in this dark cave and you know you are safe. You reply to her and say ‘Thank you for connecting.’ You then sit down and start a conversation with her.

When you have finished talking to Venus of Willendorf, you thank her and make your way out of the cave. You know you can come back to this cave anytime and connect with her. When you are ready, take three deep breaths and come back to the room.

Write down your experience. What was she like? Did she appear to you? Did she have a message for you? Did she answer your questions? How did you feel?

My Journey with Venus of Willendorf

I settled down in a comfortable sitting position and listened to some drumming. Going deep I suddenly heard a voice, ‘I am the darkness, the shadows, the creator. I create with my cauldron, my holy grail, my womb. I am the Mother of all. I will nourish and look after you. I will help you with your shadows of self. Your self image, your unworthiness and confidence. You are enough and always have been and always will be. When you deal with what’s within and see the beauty there, you will see it without.’ I then talked with her about some personal things which I will not mention here, but it was a very good connection and some things were unexpected.

Venus of Willendorf is here to help you go within and deal with your shadows of self. The issues you may have with your worthiness, or the way you look, or your self doubt. She will help you see the beauty within you and without you. To help love yourself and know that you are enough and you are beautiful, no matter how you look or what you do. For we are all unique. We are all beautiful. We all have something to offer the world. You just need to believe in yourself and heal the wounds within in order to move on more confidently and happier. To become whole again.
