Goddess News

Welcome to Goddess News spiritual blog. This space is devoted to articles on all things spiritual (but not religious). Goddess News does not subscribe to any religion but promotes the expansion and exploration of both human and divine qualities within us. Goddess News is committed to free discussion on cutting-edge,  at times controversial, topics related to the divine feminine, spirituality and sexuality, the re-interpretation of ancient sacred texts to make them relevant to modern persons, spiritual practice, eco-spirituality, spiritual travel, Tantra, alternative interpretations of Mary Magdalene (my personal obsession), the Gnostic Gospels and much more.

Your comments and contribution in the form of comments and art are much appreciated. Sending Love, Dr Joanna Kujawa, Spiritual Detective.

      Thank you Kasia. This means a lot coming from a lovely goddess like yourself. You have always inspired me with your empowerment and confidence and warmth xxx

  3. Tim Maloney says:

    Hi All you lovely gods and goddesses ~ looking forward to read and share. I have a monk who knows everything. He answers my questions only. He said one time that humanity will shift back to the original mother goddess worship after the breakdown of western religions.

    • Admin says:

      Yes we need to bring the balance back to our perception of the universal order. I would like, all of us, to explore different faces of the goddess (mother is one of them) and the various archetypes in which she manifests at the depths of our being. Thank you for signing up xxx

    So happy to join here!

    Thank you for the invitation to be part of this community. I hope my teaching of different world faiths and philosophies with young people will continue to be inspired by my own explorations and spiritual learnings, helped by other wisdom seekers as on your site and in your writings. Had a great discussion on sexism in sacred texts with my Year 11s yesterday. After the class, an earnest young woman aged 17 stayed behind to tell me her story. She has a great attraction for indigenous spiritualities as her mother is a Koori woman, though there are some disconnects there. The stories this young woman shared were of both struggle and positive spiritual understandings. She wonders is it possible for her to have a belief system that encompasses the best of all belief systems but privileging her own experience and learnings in Christianity and indigenous spiritualities. I was in awe of her inner beauty, the seriousness of her quest and her openness to the spirit moving within her. I tried to be as encouraging as I could.

    • Admin says:

      Julie, Welcome – very happy to have you here and, eventually, we will also write on indigenous spirituality. Our goals are the same to find unity, beauty and nourishment in spirituality which was unnecessarily divided into separate faiths. I believe, that spirituality is one and diverse. It is in the diversity that the beauty lies and in oneness the unity. I also love story- telling as I am a writer and would love to explore more. I am open for suggestions and would like to treat this space as a community. It is my intention to gradually increase inter-connection by creating webinars for us to be able to speak with each other :). Once again a big welcome and please feel free to comment on anything and suggest anything. Sending Love, Joanna

    I love this page so much. Being a man and going through middle age crisis I have turned to Sophia and she has helped me with open arms. Of course this is all heretical being that I was brought up Roman Catholic and suffered the lies. I now turn to the sacred feminine archetype and find some peace. Thank you Joanna for being a cool anima figure and having this site!

    • Admin says:

      Thank you G! Great to have you here. I know exactly what you mean and the Goddess news is intended as a community of seekers and am open to suggestions for the content and art. It is my intention to gradually increase inter-connection by creating webinars for us to be able to speak with each other :). Once again a big welcome and please participate by commenting – it is a space for seekers. Sending Love, Joanna

  8. G.regory says:

    Thank Joanna! One gets the feeling of being sought rather than seeking sometimes. Suppose that’s a good thing.

  9. Great work, love your writing style and content. Look forward to delving deeper xxx

  10. Katarzyna says:

    Thank you Joanna for a new piece of writing. Wonderful. After your lecture in Sydney on Jung’s Sermons I read all your great writings and ordered all mentioned gospels (Philip, MM and Thomas). Just reading them. Will you come as a guest lecturer to Sydney soon?
    Kind regards and thank you for sharing the great concepts
    Katarzyna

    • Admin says:

      Thank You Katarzyna – This means a lot. I am glad that you are enjoying the blog :). And of course, I am open to any suggestions. Reading of the three’ gnostic’ gospels can be sometimes a challenging but ultimately rewarding and nourishing experience :). As for your question about the new talks, I would love to come and do more talks. Indeed, I had a talk booked in Sydney in another organisation for November which I cancelled. I decided to focus on writing until the end of the year as apart from the blog, I am also re-visioning my novel (on Tantra and the search for the goddess) and co-authoring an academic journal on spiritual travel – so as you see, a lot to finalise till the end of the year:). But after that I am looking forward to new talks. Your friendship is important and appreciated :). Thank you :).

  11. Sumitra Bateman says:

    Another beautifully written piece by you. Your passion is wonderful & I love that you share it so honestly

    • Admin says:

      Thank you Sumitra – it is so good to hear your feedback as I was very self-conscious sharing such a personal reflection and letting the passion out:). Let’s catch up soon xxx

  12. Jane says:

    Your messages are perfectly timed Goddess. We get so caught up in the having & cease being.

    • Admin says:

      Jane, Thank you! Yes, it is a constant balancing act is it not? But it is so important to regularly remind ourselves about the true reason for our lives – which is in being :). Let’s stay in touch, Goddess 🙂

    Hi Dr Joanna, I’ve just joined your blog, and I think is about time for the Female side of Things to be let’s say more settled. However wat I’ve have noticed is not about only for the Female side but, as well for the Male. And I do not talk abt Feminine act of things. We need to understand that we at the Down of a New Era which the Unity of the two will occur in all levels of life. The Woman, will start taking her place next to MEN and both will Express and Demonstrate Soul and Spirit. Is a Spiritual and Divine fact that the Female side of wat the, Hu-man fancy calls God it Simply Existed as the Chaotic Darkness – Water. Mare, Maria, Maya and so, forth, for different Spiritual civilisations.
    We know the Male side of God through Spirit, Fire, Substance, Irritated the Black Waters to Begin to Create through the 7 Differentiations. Space, Always along with Duration, the Neutral Brahman and Vishnou the Female Creative Force. The next thing was Horizontal line which connects with the Vertical line and within the Circle Pantheism. (Mother Nature or, Kosmic Mother).When out side the Circle the Downfall of Man is complete. The dawn of the 4 Hu-man Root or, Race. In the aftermath I’ve noticed some of the terms given they do not likely represent actuall Conditions. And for Last it is possible for a birth without the interaction of the two, Maria Magdalena or Magdalene is the same think yes, she did gave birth to Jesus’s child and she spent her last days in France. Jesus the Christ he was an Initiate within the Great Mystery’s of the Great Pyramid. For last Maria Jesus’s Mother was in love let’s say with Leopas, and poor Joseph was her uncle, as we all know she had other children as well. The interaction of the two sexes is the lowest way. The humans will start coming eventually not to have the need for intersouce with its other. Man is fallen God and as a Man he will become God within God. And this is were the Hermaphroditic aspect of things comes in place during the 1st right up to the 3rt Human Root. During the Fourth the Sexes as we know them. The Creation got Septenary Manifestation. The Human Knowing though or, “Budh” to know. Human Knowledge is Symbolised with number 10.

    Kind regards, Forris

      Thank you Forris for your insightful comment. I love dialoguing and interesting discussions. Absolutely, this is the reason why I write about the Feminine in this blog because there is a rampant imbalance in the Universe of human for real and symbolic that needs to be addressed and corrected. The Feminine and Masculine must be balanced for the Cosmos to operate and create well. Gnostic sources also talk about the ‘Spiritual Androgyny’ that we all have to attain to be fully human and at the same time fulfill our divine potential. I appreciate you thoughtful comment and Welcome 😊.

  14. Forris says:

    Thank you Sundari as well. However I didn’t mention anything abt divine Androgyny, I’ve spoken directly abt God within God. I’ve mentioned and emphasize on the fact which is the recognition of Logos Christos- Ioannis- Mother Within Mind, Soul Atman. Which takes place now at the dawn of the New Era or, Age in our planet along with our Solar System. Am expressing my self from the Levels of Logos Christos- and in Unity! My teacher John of the Second Coming sense he began to prepare and Guide the Man for the last 45 Years, he clearly stated that Teachings of the kind that obviously belonging, to past Ages, they will been collected Within the Light of the God which for the last as I mentioned 45 years has Surrounding and covers this Planet in every corner of it. It will and all ready, the nessesary Transmutations and Denaturations taken place from the Students and Teachers under His Guide from the Levels of Logos. As simple as that. That is why we got an a Intention and Inclination towards old Mystical Systems. People don’t realise that obviously but, if we look around us is crystal clear. The place of the Feminine side and as well Muscular is that Unity in both sexes. And I mean Men will experience and express Logos Mother and the Women will experience and express Xristos Logos. A an Minor fact of it is when we sick we act like kids and as well as women. Am giving a process here. The Persona and ego withdrawn as there is no there’s no consciousness which means no Clear Thought, Will, Emotion. One of the reasons which we loosing sense of time. For the above reasons. For last I do not involved Religion which did serve as purpose at list to a point. Would you agree? New Era, Light washing out past dealings, Spiritual scores getting settled and man from hu-man, is time to start Gliding into the Light to Transform into MAN. Into Ano-Throskon Theo’s! Theos en Theo!

    Thank you indeed, Elpidopforos.

    PS. I will not be puttting more processes and factions on a display. With that I mean in public. Not everyone is ready for certain things and conditions. The blog is not mine am just a visitor. Takes long for the ground to be ready for new plants to be planted.
    How ever if any questions more than happy not only to answer but, as well to take things even more broadly……if space available. Humblely thank you.

    • sundari says:

      Forris, Thank you for sharing your insights. I agree that not everyone is ready or welcoming of the New Era – most likely out of attachment to the old practices and understanding and perhaps fear. Indeed, traditional religions did play a significant role in the past but now, I believe the become more and more disconnected form the spiritual evolution that humanity is undergoing. Again, probably, because of the need to control the process – and this is not their place anymore – in my opinion.
      You are welcome to express your views through your comments as all kinds of opinions are welcome here, especially if they do not fit into mainstream views :).

      • Forris says:

        Joanna, thankyou for the feedback back. I do agree with you to the thoughts pointing out. It is true we fear wat we don’t know or, understand, routher. It is a human functionality. I believe the past Religious and Philosophical and Mystic civilisations have prepared the way right to this point. But, under any circumstances would arouse back again. We know and I think you would agree on the fact that anything under this Sun got an Expire date. And you do understand for what am referring to. As wisely put is time for the man to turn Within and start Praying, Meditate, contemplating. Is that need to re-evaluate and re-open the mental, psychic, and divine channels with the God within. And again my humble opinion. Men, have forgotten how to communicate with the divine. Every Evolution started from within bought wonderful results. Study is good but, without the the above Aspects it will always remain an effort. Nothing more. And again thank you kindly. I hope the effort that takes place in here will draw Souls who are thirsty for starters to seek Them Self, from and Toward the Within, or, at list to start understanding why we wake Up every new day.😊

        Kind regards, Elpidopforos.
