Demeter Mother Goddess Pendant Talisman - handcrafted by Pepi and Company
Demeter is part of the Greek Pantheon of Gods and Goddesses of Mt. Olympus. She is known as the Mother Goddess and also the Goddess of Grain, thus a sustainer of life. She is most well known by the myth of Demeter and Persephone.
Persephone was the child of Demeter and Zeus. As a maiden, Persephone was abducted by Hades and taken to the underworld to become his bride. Demeter heard her daughter‘s cries as she was swallowed up by the earth and brought into the darkness of Hade‘s world. Demeter searched for 9 days and nights without sleep or food for Persephone. Heliope, God of the Sun, then told her that Zeus had allowed Hades to abduct her. Demeter’s grief was so great that she could only wander the earth in despair. At her Temple in Eleusis she sat in hopeless depression at the loss of her child. She stopped functioning as the nurturing, mothering goddess which caused the crops to fail and no children to be born. Famine threatened the whole of humanity so Zeus had to do something.
Zeus decided to allow Persephone to be brought to Demeter to end her grief and restore the earth’s abundance, but Persephone had eaten pomegranate seeds given to her by Hades and could only spend two thirds of the year with Demeter, returning to the underworld and Hades for the remainder of each year. This is said to be our cold, dark winter months when crops stop growing and the landscape becomes barren.
The myth of Demeter and Persephone is testament to the bond of a mother and child. A mother’s love is boundless. It lies deep in the psyche where spirituality resides.
The Goddess Demeter represents a woman’s need to nurture and sustain, whether it be her children, her work, her community, or other people’s children. She will provide for physical needs, emotional needs, and spiritual needs. Demeter also represents the challenge of growth through suffering, which results in renewed wisdom and a deeper spiritual understanding.
