Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life. Her namesake has become synonymous with all that is healing, environmentally friendly, eco conscious, and ultimately working toward a more harmonious and connected Mother Earth.
From the Greek mythology, Gaia was the first goddesses that was the divine personification of the Earth and considered to be the first material being born into the cosmos out of chaos. Gaia's archetypical energy therefore represents the energy that supports all living things, giving life, nourishment and a mother connection to all on Earth.
Work with Gaia's energy to help support you to feel grounded, or to begin your journey with exploring what being grounded means to you. Call on Gaia and her medicine to feel supported and nurtured, allowing you to be able to surrender into the connection with the ultimate mother. This can be particularly nurturing for those that do not have a healthy connection with their own mother figure, or who have a disconnect when working with the other mother archetypes and what they embody. Gaia is truly a soft place to land for all.
One may also work with Gaia and her energy when hoping to connect with more positive ways to help give back to Gaia, to be more mindful of their consumption and footprint and to connect with the ways they can use their energy to support other people, plants and animals here on Earth.
