Baubo, the ancient Grecian goddess, is one of many wild goddesses of sacred sexuality. Like other goddesses (eg Spider Woman and Freya), she is also the archetypal goddess of life, death and fertility.
When Demeter was pining for her Persephone and witholding fertility from the world, Baubo danced and performed merrily for the Great Mother, inducing her to forget her anger long enough to take some nourishment.
Her Modern Energy
A Crone goddess with irreverent joy and liberation towards sexuality, Baubo reminds us to relish sex, love, and above all, carefree laughter.
It is in the relief of sadness or fear that feminine sensuality, sexuality and joy are restored. Acting the clown, Baubo could always say “Let’s celebrate! We have our sacred feminine, our life – we are divine, so let’s dance!”
Reconnect With Your Inner Baubo
Try this today… It’s an exercise I like to call the “Ho Ho Diet” because laughing is a transforming and uplifting exercise, not only in a physical sense, but also mentally and spiritually….
Wearing orange to stimulate your sacral chakra, stand outdoors where you have plenty of space. Place your palms over your centre: your womb, and cradle your wondrous core. Look up at the expanse of the sky and breathe into your belly deeply. With all your energy, and when you are ready to release, laugh out aloud, let the whole sky reverberate with your laughter!
Dance like no one is watching
Sing like no one is listening
Love like you’ve never been hurt
And live like heaven on earth.
… If she were in your situation, she would perform a mischievous trick, sing a bawdy song or play a practical joke – whatever it takes to ensure those around her get a good laugh out of the situation.
