If your name is Diane or Diana, it is from the Latin word divus meaning “divine, shine one.” Diane was the Roman goddess of the hunt, the moon, and childbirth. She was associated with wild animals and woodland, had the power to talk to animals, and found oak groves especially sacred. There is something very wild about her nature. Thoreau once said: “All good things are wild and free.” The dictionary defines “divine” as “of or belonging to God,” and it is usually associated with goodness. Divine qualities are described in the Jewish Kabalah’s Tree of Life as being: the eternal present, wisdom, justice, mercy, beauty, truth, harmony, empathy, stewardship, and success. You are endued with divine qualities. You have within you the ability to be wise, just, and compassionate. You also hold within you beauty and truth. Ella Wheeler Wilcox said in “Resolve!”: The spark divine dwells in thee: let it grow.” Let let your light grow and shine. As Marianne Williamson said in Return to Love: “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”
Pass this on to a Diane or Diana you know.
