True Power

True Power

Wednesday, June 16, 2010


There have been several women throughout history who had what is known as the IT FACTOR. Their desired beauty is legendary. Some of them were not even considered beautiful but had men falling at their feet. What was their secret and how can the every day woman possess it?

The Sirens of Greek mythology were special sea nymphs who sung in a seductive way. They had the body of a bird with a human head, yet they were able to lure sailors to their death with their intoxicating voices. Later, the sirens would become known as the mermaid and by the 4th century they would become a symbol for the dangerous temptation embodied by women regularly depicted in Christian art.

The goddess Venus is associated with love, beauty and fertility. Her name means love and sexual desire in Latin. Julius Ceasar adopted the goddess as his protector. It was believed by one group of her cult followers that her hair was her most important instrument of feminine charm.

Lady Delilah of the Bible is known as a dangerous temptress from the book of Judges. She was a cunning and treacherous femme fatale. Her name in Hebrew actually means, [One who] weakened or uprooted or impoverished. Armies of men tried to take down the strongest man on earth; Samson, with weapons made of steel. But, the beauty and cunning of one woman was able to accomplish what a legion of men were not able.

Cleopatra VII Thea Philopator seduced two powerful men. She is considered sensual and beautiful because she was intelligent, charming, with amazing convincing powers even though coins found during the time of her reign (depicting her) had an image of a woman with a hooked nose and masculine features. She was no dummy. She spoke over nine languages.

Mata Hari was a courtesan, artist, free-spirited Bohemian known as a promiscuous, flirtatious dancer who openly flaunted her body. She would progressively shed her clothes until she wore only a jeweled bra and some ornaments upon her arms and head. She was a mystery to everyone she was adored by. She created the person she wanted to be leaving behind a checkered past. She would be assasinated for being a double agent (spy), but she had bedded the most famous and wealthy men of society and died as one who was desired and worshipped by many.

The list of seductresses would not be complete without the blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe. It has been said that she had an intoxicating quality of volcanic sexuality wrapped in an aura of childlike innocence.


Jane Ganahl stated it best:(Looks are not the key)
Far more important is the gift of wit, brains, empathy and self-sufficiency, along with great verbal skills; words are potent, erotic, and powerful.

Men are drawn to women they think they can never quite possess. Betsy Prioleau, author of "Seductress" profiled 50 of the world's most famous seductresses and found " "All they need is a tiny bit of resistence, a little demonstration of their independence, some of their superior personhood, and the next thing you know, they will be worshipped."

Mystery solved. It is an inner beauty of confidence and a healthy attitude (not that hard hearted type of I don't need anyone) of "I love myself whether you do or not" that is the love potion number nine.
