Sekhmet: Goddess of Strength and Love

pencil drawing of lion head egyptian goddess sekhmet by artist phoebe thomasson

It’s January. I needed something a bit stronger; you know how it is!? I was not to be disappointed. Look what I found! I am studying the Egyptian Lion Goddess, Sekhmet. You may have seen her in your travels. I am now seeing her in my visions!


She is a patron of the arts, amongst many other things (she has hundreds of names!) and encourages her image to be reproduced by artists. So watch this space as I delve into the head of a lion and the body of a woman. Powerful stuff!

About Phoebe Thomasson

I am in love with expression in all forms; art, poetry, writing, music, dance...I want to inspire creativity, foster understanding and nurture the process of transformation in myself and others. In short, I want to evolve. This requires trust in speaking one's truth and freedom from fear and shame. If we cannot speak our truth without shame, then we have far to go! Join me as I heal my psyche through the creative process and find interesting perspectives as I go about my personal evolution as an artist, mother, and Shaman.
