Discover what the relatively obscure Greek Goddess can bring to your life and how to incorporate her into your next Goddess Ritual…
WHO IS HESYKHIA?
The majority of us all know the basic Greek/Roman/Egyptian Gods that existed centuries ago. From Aphrodite to Zeus, Hermes, to Achilles, these names have become part of popular culture in movies, books, and even world-renowned brands. But what about the lesser-known deities that have seemingly faded into insignificance with time and lack of research?
Studying History and Classical Civilisation at college was the beginning of my fascination with the classical and ancient world, but it wasn’t until I was older and began developing the spiritual self that I felt even more drawn to connecting with different deities that span a multitude of cultures.
From the limited information, I could discover, Hesykhia was a Daemon/Spirit that personified quiet, stillness, rest, and tranquility.
Ancient stories depict her surroundings as; “No roar of the sea is here, though all the shores be sounding, nor yet of the sky; the very torrent that runs down the deep valley nigh the cave is silent among the rocks and boulders.” – wherever she goes, peace and quiet follows.

When choosing different Goddesses to work with, and to give meaning and significance to the range of essential oil blends I was creating, I was largely led by my intuition. Whilst working on our blend for easing anxiety, I scoured through books and internet directories before stumbling across her name – and it stood out to me. It almost sounds like a whisper, her spirit and energy spoke to me on a deeper level.
After all, easing anxiety leads to the eventual goal of feeling a sense of inner peace, an internal silence where you are present and existing only in the moment. Yes, I could have easily chosen any number of well-known Goddesses, but the fact that she doesn’t stand out, that she resides almost in the ether, as a spirit surrounding us and guiding us towards rest and silence made her the perfect choice.
