The Primal Goddess is one who uses her passion to fuel her life. She is uninhibited when expressing her desires. She uses the full force of her sexuality to manifest what she wants and its raw and untamed power.
"She Who is Natural, Instinctual, Untamed and Free." With the motto, "Everything to excess", she pushes past the interpretations and boundaries the mind has developed out of habit patterns and limiting beliefs, into experiencing new freedom.
The Primal Goddess follows her instincts and passions without rationalization and mental approval of the inner adult critic or for acceptance.
Clarissa Pincola Estes describes this archetype in her book Women Who Run with the Wolves, as unfettered, primal in her passions, wild and free adhering only to her own truth. She is instinctive and is not afraid to be fully sexual, passionate or lustful.
If you identify with this aspect of the Goddess of Love you will feel called to express your wildness not only in the bedroom but in life as well. You may rebel against anything that limits your freedom of expression and authenticity of your emotional nature.
The Shadow Aspect of the Primal Goddess In the shadow aspect, shame, guilt, anger, powerless, doubt, and stagnant creative energy are common themes as we may try to get what we want, without simply standing in our power and truth and asking directly for what we desire, or use the powerful energy of kundalini to sexually seduce and manipulate.
The gateway to this aspect is found through ecstatic attunement, and can be accessed through deep meditation, dancing, writing, painting, lovemaking, prayer making, singing, imagination or any activity which accesses an intense and altered state of consciousness."I fuel. I consume."
