Hel, Norse Goddess of the Underworld
Susan Seddons Boulet
This time is perfect for exploring and making a connection to Underworld goddesses, especially if you have avoided this or have a fear of Them. They are the Mothers of the Dead, those who tend to all who pass the veil. Yes, some can be scary, but They have an important role; They remind us to remember, They assist those making the transition from this world to the next, They guide us to accepting the inevitable. Great insights and less fear can be the result of exploring our relationship with these goddesses.
Devotional activity: Today we begin three days of making devotions to Underworld Goddesses. Our first is Hel, Norse goddess of the Underworld. Research a bit about Her and write a short devotional prayer to Her. Tonight, late when it is dark and you can feel the energies of the waning moon, light a black candle and recite your prayer to Her. Allow yourself a few minutes to consider what the role of regular devotional practice to an Underworld goddess might bring to your life. Feel free to share your prayer and experiences in the comments section.
Blessings dark and deep!
