The Story of Persephone and Demeter
“Persephone – possessing an introverted temperament (polar opposite to Hera) with issues of inner world control/ power–she represents the goddess of the underworld–concerned with the world of spirit, the occult, matters associated with death. She is mystical, visionary and often possesses spirit guides. Her awareness is diffuse. Persephone belongs to the relationship-oriented ‘vulnerable’ goddess category having a very close relationship with her mother, Demeter. Another aspect of her vulnerability, Persephone was abducted, taken to the Underworld and raped by Hades. Her mother, Demeter mourned, sorrowfully, in the face of her abduction.”from ~ “Find Your Goddess Archetype” http://goddess-power.com/index.htm
My Name is Korinne. Your Name is your Fate, is true in my Case. I speak about Kore / Persephone / Aradia as they are my own self. Through Life, this time and others, Through Mystic Wisdom and Astral Teachers- I have Lived these Myths- in real time, In Flesh. I AM Korinne, the French (Language of Love) version of Kore.
Quoting "The Myth of the Goddess" as found in Gardenarian Wicca Now Aradia had never loved, but she would solve all the Mysteries, even the Mystery of Death; and so she journeyed to the Nether Lands. The Guardians of the Portals challenged her, "Strip off thy garments, lay aside thy jewels; for naught may ye bring with ye into this our land." So she laid down her garments and her jewels and was bound, as were all who enter the Realms of Death the Mighty One. Such was her beauty that Death himself knelt and kissed her feet, saying, "Blessed by thy feet that have brought thee in these ways. Abide with me, let me place my cold hand on thy heart." She replied "I love thee not. Why dost thou cause all things that I love and take delight in to fade and die?" "Lady," replied Death, "it is Age and Fate, against which I am helpless. Age causes all things to wither, but when men die at the end of time I give them rest and peace, and strength so that they may return. But thou, thou art lovely. Return not; abide with me." But she answered, "I love thee not." Then said Death, "An' thou receive not my hand on thy heart thou must receive Death's scourge." "It is Fate; better so", she said, and she knelt, and Death scourged her and she cried "I feel the pangs of love." And Death said, "Blessed be" and gave her the Fivefold Kiss, saying "Thus only may ye attain joy and knowledge." And he taught her all the Mysteries. And they loved and were one, and he taught her all the Magicks. For there are three great events in the life of Man: Love, Death and Resurrection in a new body, and Magick controls them all. For to fulfill love you must return again at the same time and place as the loved one, and you must remember and love them again. But to be reborn you must die, and be ready for a new body; and to die you must be born; and without love you may not be born. And these be all the Magicks. So there in the Gardnerian Myth of the Goddess we have her Maiden aspect, seeking, searching and opening herself to the mysteries. But it is well to remember that the Goddess herself is a mystery, and the primary gift of the Goddess is intuitive Wisdom. http://www.sacred-texts.com/bos/bos610.htm
“THE RE-EMERGENCE OF BRITISH WITCHCRAFT: In 1951 the British Parliament repealed the Witchcraft Act of 1735 -largely at the urging of Spiritualist churches, who objected to its prohibition of mediumship. This statutory change unexpectedly led to the emergence into public view of a religious tradition thought to be extinct: Witchcraft.4 These British witches defied definitions of the term common both in the vernacular and in anthropology textbooks. They were of both sexes, all ages, and were not isolated practitioners of maleficent magic; rather they claimed to be inheritors of the islands’ pre-Christian religions. Their religion was duotheistic: they wor- shipped a male god, often called Cernnunos, Kernaya, or Herne; and a goddess, sometimes called Aradia or Tana. Of the two, sometimes seen as manifestations of a nonpersonal Godhead, the goddess had the greater importance, and her earthly representatives, the coven’s priestess, had greater ritual authority.”

Persephone: Forced Defence, forced growth, the lessons of Dominion
Aradia: Radiant Platinum Ray, a Frequency to Assist in the Cultivation of Cosmic Consciousness
Historically Persephone and Aradia have nothing to do with one another. Aradia is an Etruscan (Italian) Goddess of Witchcraft- Her Parents Lucifer (pre-Christian) and Diana sent Aradia to EARTH/GAIA to “Teach the Witches”.
When I was a Baby Witch I read about ARADIA in “THE WITCHES GODDESS” by the Farrar(s) ~
I am Currently Trying to Research the “Celestial Aradia”- I have not read about her. I have visions of her. She is a Goddess who works with the Platinum Ray energies of Light- She seems encrusted in diamonds and the platinum ray hits her with light- making a Disco Ball effect- beams of light everywhere. I feel this is the Celestial Evolution of Aradia. My life is mythic- I’m a visionary mystic. Korinne is my given name- Kore is the Root Name. Kore the Innocent (Greek) was taken by Hades to the Underworld (you could say that is Incarnation for a bright soul- you could say he took Her to the Subconscious realm). There Kore Evolved into Persephone. When Persephone was reunited with her Mother Demeter, through Hermes- Persephone REALIZED she has Evolved More than Even her mother- as a Goddess in her Own Right. Persephone had Conquered the Underworld and the Upper World. I personally made it to THAT specific part of my journey by healing my subconscious- Then I had a Kundalini Awakening- and Everything changed. I had visions of Aradia, this Celestial Goddess ~ Transformed into Radiance ~ I had my Merkaba and Rainbow Light body, my visions Increased and my gnosis grew. This Shining Goddess Called Herself Aradia. When I was a Baby Witch, Teenager, I was Called by only 2 Goddesses- The First was Aradia, the second Isis. IF you have anything to contribute- I would love to hear from you.
