    I love this so much!!! Omg! No words can express how much I love this episode.

    Though I must say that Athena has always been my least fav goddess. I dislike her intensely.

      Hi Lucy! Thank you so much for your comments! We appreciate the feedback. Ha! Would love to hear what insights Athena holds for you 🙂

        I’ve always felt sad for Medusa and hated Athena and I think it’s so upside down, that the woman who was cursed into a monster gets the bad rep, while this jealous war-loving Athena gets appraised and worshipped! Of course, there’s my personal history there, too.
        That’s also probably why I haven’t been very good with planning and scheduling even though I know it’s good for me. I have been practicing planning a bit this year (so calling in some Athena), and it’s working well and helping me. I like structure, as well as randomness. But I do feel I still resist her, so it takes more effort to plan and schedule than I know it would if I don’t. Not sure it makes sense 🙂

    Kumba”s a classic, one of my personal favorites. The way the train emits an absolutely deafening ROAR at night time still makes the hair on my neck stand up. I rode Bizarro pre-F/X (still Medusa back then) and I enjoyed it. Kraken is a far better floorless, though Hydra didn”t impress me..much too slow.

    Medusa was the remedy I needed right now, at this time…I had no idea! She was a missing link for me. I listened to this podcast and the Inner Circle Archetype Workshop sessions yesterday evening and since then things have just opened up in major ways. It was powerful and finally connected ALL of my dots (past lives) of the raise and fall of the divine feminine and why I felt the way I did back then…it totally makes sense now. Today I listened again from another angle and with that a vision of my life purpose appeared. That was huge!!! I have no idea how I will make all of this happen but who cares…I have faith and trust and already took the first step towards my resources to get started. That’s all it takes.

      That’s fantastic, Heike! Thank you so much for sharing. We appreciate your comments 🙂

    This while time i thought medusa was raped by poseidan and thats why athena turned her so thay she would no longer suffer at the hands of a man

    Yep, last month I was the jealous woman who stands in her masculine and saw a woman who was chosen over me by a male friend I love. That’s why I started this journey. It awakened a desire to step into my feminine. Because I thought being in my feminine was weakness and I needed to protect myself. So I’m curious if this happened to me when I was young. So much fear of penetration and vulnerability with the masculine. I’ve put of weight as protection.

      Hi Liz! Thank you for sharing. We often carry several layers of patterning and conditioning within our psyche, but we also have the power to strip ourselves of it! Welcome to ReWilding! So glad you’re here 🙂
