Goddess Knowledge – Gaia

This week we are going to find out more about the Goddess Gaia. Which is also another name given to Mother Earth by Neo-Pagans. 

GAIA

Gaia existed before everything; she existed before time. Gaia, the eternal, prehistoric earth mother goddess,, is fertility incarnate, moist, mysterious, strong. She is life energy itself; everything that lives, breathing or not, overflows with her life. She is the earth and all powers of the earth. Gaia is not always a consoling goddess: standing for life and generation without thought of consequence, she has energy and a power that must be approached carefully. All bodies eventually return to her, into the black, fertile earth, to be devoured and to receive her life to live again. As goddess of the soul, Gaia reminds us that the soul develops in dark places and that ultimately soul must be rooted in the body, in earth. She is a reminder that we must ground ourselves into the reality of nature and incorporate all sides of ourselves, be the pleasant or unpleasant, light or dark.

  1. There’s something so powerful and primal about Gaia that, regardless of which pantheon various pagans work with, I’ve noticed that most have zero issues with including Gaia in their worldview.

    1. Mother Earth or Gaia or anyone of many names she goes by is the Great Mother of every living thing on this planet and of 4 of the elements most Pagans work with, Air, Fire, Earth, and Water. Her consort and son, The Great Father, who also goes by many names is the one that brings her the element of Spirit so that the Great Mother can use it to protect all living things that grow, walk, fly, or swim on her, the two of them along with spirits from the Summerlands and our ancestors help guide us, and the element of Spirit pulls together the other 4 elements so they can work together. The Great Mother and the Great Father are two parts of a whole. Some Pagans may disagree or have another view on this subject but this is my spiritual path belief and is the knowledge I share with my novices, adepts, other coven members, and on Coven Life’s website.
