Hello again instructors,

When remembering my Divine Mother is it better to stick with one image or is it okay to see her in a diversity of images and representations in my imagination? I personally love many images of the Divine Mother, and I think of her in her many forms throughout all the religions, is this recommended?

I personally love the Greek representations of the Divine Feminine, of the Divine Mother, and another question I wish to ask is this: In the Greek pantheon, which particular representation of the Divine Mother is best equivalent to Isis or Mary, or the Divine Mother in her highest? Am I right in praying and imagining her as Hera? Would I get as much benefit imagining my Divine Mother as Athena or Hera in this general regard? I know that each goddess represents a particular aspect of the tree of life, but I wish to use an image that symbolises my own private loving Divine Mother, please may I have your help with this?

Much thanks,

Peace.

Use whatever images inspire you. The fact that you resonate with a particular pantheon says a lot about your intuition. Follow that inspiration through visualizing an image or images from this tradition that help to elevate your mind and heart.

Just out of interest, what does one worship as an image of the Divine Mother if one is a Jew? Or if one is a Muslim?

Peace.
