One of my favorite ways to express my femininity is through the adornment of my body. I love all types of jewelry. The shinier the better! There is something so rewarding when I’ve got on a dazzling pair of earrings or a ring as bright as a shooting star. I love the enchanting sensuality in the jingle of bangle bracelets.
Women in many different cultures have been celebrating their bodies by adorning themselves with precious metals and gems for years. Wearing jewelry that takes the the shape of sacred symbols can be a great way to connect with the energy that the symbol represents. Also, when you wear a beautiful piece of jewelry made with gemstones, you get the added benefit of the powerful healing qualities of that particular stone.
Two lesser known goddesses associated with jewelry are Aglaea and Theia Euryphaessa. Aglaea is the minor Greek goddess of splendor and adornment. Her name means brightness. She is also the youngest of the three Charites, or Graces. Her and her sisters were attendants to the goddess Aphrodite, thus making them well versed in all things beauty.
Theia, or Euryphaessa, is the Greek Titan goddess of sight and shining light. Her name Theia means divine and Euryphaessa means wide-shining. She is known as the goddess of sight because it was believed that the eyes let out beams of invisible light, that allowed one to see what their eyes set upon. She is also known as the goddess who bestows radiance upon silver and gold. She also gave birth to three shining children; Selene (the Moon), Eos (the Dawn), and Helios (the Sun).
I encourage all women to get into the practice of adorning their bodies, not only for aesthetic purposes, but in celebration of their inner divine goddess!
