Since December is in the time of YULE as the Wheel of the Year goes, I’d like to feature the Goddess Cerridwen.
Cerridwen is in the Crone stage of the Triple Goddess representation.
MY PERSONAL JOURNEY WITH CERRIDWEN
This picture I took during one of my Rituals. No specific reason for the ritual, I just felt it a necessity that day to do one.
I am convinced the Entity in the smoke from the herb mixture I created and lit in the cauldron, is Cerridwen.
Cerridwen became the Goddess which protects me, once I entered the Crone Stage of life. She would bring me guiding messages and align me where I needed balance. The oddest communication came one day while I was driving home from work. “Go back to your roots” she demanded. Perplexed, I asked questions. I had been a blonde for 10 years. Cerridwen was nudging that I needed to go back to being a brunette. I compromised and became a redhead. She was pleased.
Instead of being nervous and apprehensive about becoming ‘older and wiser’, Cerridwen enables me to feel okay, comfortable, and excited to extend another year to my existence. She eases every anxiety and I celebrate becoming older. It’s an acknowledgement of ‘yay I did it’!
She is like a mother. Holding my hand through facing what I need to face. She is like a Grandmother. Just being there for me always.
I give Cerridwen much Gratefulness and Appreciation for where I am in my own self-identity and self-worth. I am my own best friend and I will always be. I don’t let myself down. I honour me. I praise me. With her encouragement and support my motto is “I’ve Got This’.
Much Love and Thanks to Cerridwen. Always.
