Hera is a deity that is known to be the goddess of Marriage, Commitment and Motherhood as well as being Queen of the Olympians in the Ancient Greek Pantheon. As she is the wife of Zeus, King of the Olympians, Hera has the energy of royalty and is seen as a tall woman, draped in white robes with a sceptre in hand and a peacock standing behind her.
With her association to Marriage, Hera is a beautiful being that oversees all marriages and divine unions. Be they heterosexual or same-gender, Hera looks upon all who enter into such a relationship with eyes of love and sends her blessings to them.
Hera encourages the commitment between two individuals, particularly in marriage and will help the two people in this committed relationship. However, she also understands and respects that a monogamous relationship may not be for everyone. In this instance, she will help to strengthen the bonds between the two who choose to be together and come home to one another as it were.
Another commitment that Hera helps with is that of the commitment of a mother to her child. It is in the area of Motherhood that Hera encourages a mother to look upon her child with love and care whilst ensuring that adequate discipline helps the child learn and grow. She can also help step-mothers love and care for the children that have come into their life through a previous union.
Whilst Hera holds each of her roles close to her heart, she respects everyone’s Free Will and as such will not act unless one asks for the help. As such, a prayer is an ideal way to ask for her and God’s help. An example of a prayer that can be utilised is:
‘Dearest God and Hera, thank you for helping me with my divine union and for helping me keep my desired level commitment in this. For this, I give thanks. Amen.’
A simple, yet very effective in bringing forth their assistance and help. Though it is very important to always remember to give thanks for all that they do.
As Hera helps everyone in the ways of Marriage, Commitment and Motherhood, it is important to remember that anyone and everyone can call upon her and God at any time. No matter how small the request may seem, both Hera and God will always help.
