The Greek Gods
Not many would know this – the Greek Gods we know of were not the ones always in power. The ones we know of are Olympian Gods but before them, it was Titans who ruled and were eventually overthrown by the Olympian Gods. It is interesting to note that Titans were the ancestors of the Olympian Gods.
The Olympian Gods were born and grew up like normal humans and some even got married. The only difference being that they were immortal and never aged. The Olympian Gods lived on the highest mountain of Greece called Mount Olympia built by Cyclopses.
The 14 Olympian Gods
There are 12 Olympian Gods who are majorly referred to; but per the Ancient Greek Mythology there are four more Gods, however, there were never more than 12 at one time – the other four were available per the geographical location. The list of Olympian Gods (alphabetical) – Aphrodite; Apollo; Ares; Artemis; Athena; Demeter; Dionysus; Hades; Hephaestus; Hera; Hermes; Hestia; Poseidon and Zeus.
Messages from the Great Olympians
What you need to do is quite simple – from the list above instinctively choose an Olympian God; try to be very mindful and conscious while doing so. Once you are sure that you have chosen the right God – just simply read the message, your Greek God has in store for you.
Aphrodite – the Goddess of Beauty: Beauty can be both, a blessing and a curse. It all depends on how you are using it. With your beauty, you can enchant, amaze or do wonderful things or you could destroy people, cities and lives. Many went mad after beauty and couldn’t realise that it is the inner beauty that stands above all. People will remember how you made them feel, not how heart-throbbingly beautiful you are.
Apollo – God of Music and Light: The sweetness of life surrounds you in this very moment. You are blessed by the divine, enjoy its light and blessing being bestowed upon you. You are the Cosmos and the potential of which is vast and endless. Let the music heal you and rewire you to bask in the glory of who you really are.
Ares – God of War: Life is an everyday struggle and fight, however, it is not a war. We do not gain anything out of war and peace is the only way. When we make peace with ourselves and the world, we realise that war is never a solution and peace is who we really are, who we were meant to be in the first place. Remember, we see the world how we are, not how the world actually is. Choose your fight consciously and a fight that is worth fighting for.
Artemis – Goddess of Wilderness: Night is merely a reminder that everything was created out of the darkness and there is nothing to be afraid of it. The Moon and the stars are always surrounding and guiding us – leading our way through the abyss of darkness.
Athena – Goddess of Wisdom: Wisdom is not something that you hone but you develop over time; from all the past imprints on your soul and your daily experiences. All you need is a different set of glasses and a panoramic view to becoming the wise you were born to be. Do not let words and thoughts of other people bother and mislead you, hear your own inner voice and move forward.
Demeter – Goddess of Harvest and Agriculture: Mother Earth is abundant and she is asking you to enjoy the abundance she has aplenty for her children. Enjoy nature and nurture your body, your mind and let your soul guide you. Go out in nature; Be splendid. Be you!
Dionysus – God of Entertainment and Relaxation: All you need to do is, let go. Let go and leave the stress life behind. Life becomes infinitely beautiful when you just dance and sing away your problems. Focus on the abundance and as you do, all the trouble and hardships become very easy to handle and heal.
Hades – God of Death/Change – Let go of the fear of death – it will come to all human beings one day or the other. Death does not discriminate between good and bad, race, creed, caste and gender be no bias for it. Death is peace and in this world full of chaos and confusion, death only means change and a new beginning.
Hephaestus – God of Creativity: You need to reveal your creative talents and accept them with an open heart. Pursue the path where your heart lies, but first, you need to come to terms with it on your own. Your talents are a gift to this world but you have to relish it first to be able to share it with everyone else.
Hera – Goddess of Feminine Energy and Marriage: Family is the greatest gift bestowed upon the human race but we need to remember, we are not bound by it. If you have a loving and caring family who supports you, you have been blessed and if they aren’t the ideal ones according to you still love them but do not forget to love yourself first. You are bound to succeed in life when all that you do is done out of love because love never guides you to be destructive.
Hermes – God of Transition: Express your inner world.Talk to others about all the amazing things that you have been blessed with; well, communicate freely and openly. Travel around the world to create new experiences for yourself and broaden your horizons. There is the entire world out there waiting for you to explore it all.
Hestia – Goddess of Family and Home: Home is where your heart is. This feeling stands true for anything that has your heart – a person, your family, a friend. It is a feeling, both magical and magnificent to be able to call something or someone home. A home is a place where you go back to recharge and get back in shape and come back powerful. Always be hospitable and keep your heart warm and loving for the world.
Poseidon – God of the Sea and Waters: You need feel the ferociousness that water holds within. The power of the ocean and the sea. Any water body – sea, ocean, lake, the river is a great deal that will help you relax and let go of all your burdens. The water reminds you of the ebb and the flow in life. It also represents that like the Ocean that the greatest mysteries are hidden in our subconscious mind.
Zeus – God of the Sky: True power is not external to you but lies within. When you impose power on others, fear is born. However, when you bask in your power and help somebody walk free of fear and in their own right, you are empowered too. Treat everybody as an Equal. Treat them with justice and fairness, as you would want to be treated yourself.
