Mother God: The Feminine Principle to Our Creator

4.04  ·  Rating details ·  471 Ratings  ·  32 Reviews
Sylvia Browne, in her own indomitable style, again defies convention in this uniquely informative compilation of diligently researched facts and personal accounts about the premise of a female divinity—namely, the Mother God (also known as the feminine principle).
Spanning time from the earliest beginnings of humankind, when the time of the “Goddess” was at its peak, to th

I am very interested in the topic of female divinity and spirituality, so I was excited to read this books. But, I found it poorly researched and cited (the author's spirit guide pops up as a primary source more than once), mediocrely written and overall self-aggrandizing.

One of the better books I've read about our Heavenly Mother. This does not demote Her to a personification of the Earth or the Moon and does Her justice as a Creator-Deity in Her own right. Also includes some beautiful testimonies and experiences people have had when calling on Her. I love the name 'Azna' for Her, too. My only complaint is that I wish it were longer!

What can I say? If one could give less than one star, I would. This book is poorly written, infantile and has absolutely no bearing on reality. Even if I were to believe in a god or goddess, I would find this book worthless. It is filled with nothing but bullshit. Don't waste your time reading it.

Shelves: religion
For too many people caught up in the "dogma" of their religious belief, the concept of there being a feminine side to God is heresy. And yet, each new religion that comes along is built onto the foundation of those beliefs that came before. Such concepts as resurrection after death (began with the Egyptians), the virgin birth (Mithraism which came from the eastern Mediterranean), the great flood (Babylonian myth) and the story of creation (multiple civilizations) were believed by humans long bef ...more

This book is about Azna, the Mother God. The book has a variety of chapters, including “evidence of the feminine principle,” “who is Mother God?,” “petitioning Azna for help”, frequently asked questions, prayers/meditations, and letters from people who had asked for and received help.

The historical portion of the book is the most interesting. In my opinion, though, too much of the book is taken up with the letters. The idea that many people asked for help and received it can be stated straight o

"Mother God" explores the concept of a feminine side to the creator. Sylvia Browne states that one can still believe and pray to the Father, Son and Holy Ghost but she says that there is a fourth godly entity known as Mother God or Azna. Azna is the more nurturing part of the divine and she completes the holy family similar to a traditional earthly family.

A good part of her book features letters from people who have been touched by Mother God. Testimonies range from finding lost items to healing

Interesting, but without references, not a great book for me. I don't see how you can state things as fact without giving any references and allowing others to come to their own conclusions based on this information too. If you are already a devout Christian or Catholic, this books will possibly be fine for you. I, personally, need to be able to research deeper because the patriarchal beliefs/writings do not mesh at all with me and my own deep understanding of our universe/world/earth. I'm sure ...more

As a reader of several Sylvia Browne books, in my opinion this is not one of the better written books. Although, I applaud the topic of the Feminine Divine Principle, it's history and current place in society it just isn't covered well in this book. Information is scattered and patched together from many different sources and put together in a "hodge podge" way. The Feminine Divine is a huge topic that can't possibly be squeezed into a small book and be done well. What the book does offer is; Sy ...more

As a Sylvia Browne fan I was excited to read this book. So reviewers have said it is not one of her best works but I disagree. Mother God is not a huge all encompassing book, but more of a nibble to get you hooked and spark your mind into seeing the possibility of an equal feminine aspect to God. She gives great perspective on the theory, as well as giving the reader respected references to information. However if one is not already familiar with Sylvia's works you may be put off by her referenc ...more

Wow! Amazing and insightful, as Sylvia always is! She never dissapoints to bring new facts, thoughts, and ideas to the table. I was deffinitly inspired by this read to get to know "Mother God" aka "Azna" and have been writing to her in my journal ever since. She is referred to as the Great Interceptor in this book and I really feel that's what she is, especially to me. I am so glad I have had a taste of who she is and what she has done and will do. It has opened a gateway for me, a new passion t ...more

This is a book that explains who Mother god is and that we were created in God and Mother Gods likeness. Ancient civilizations throughout history have prayed to Mother God. This book provides documented accounts from people that have petitioned Mother Anza and prayers/miracles that were answered. This book included prayers and meditations for personal use to petition Mother Anza to ask for her help.

Being raised Roman Catholic, it took me a little bit to wrap my head around the idea of the mother God and father God. As I was reading, I was trying to keep an open mind about what Sylvia had to say. While I am still trying to understand that there are things I am simply not going to understand, I still enjoyed reading this book a lot, as I do with all of her books. She has a writing style that allows me to devour whatever she writes. And it helps to have the English degree she has as well. :)

A quick read and one that allows you to contemplate additional possibilities. I certainly buy into this and appreciate the exercises that she provides. I was a little put off though at the end when she includes letters written by some readers since it seemed as though it was more self-promoting than actual experiences dealing with Mother God. Other than that, I certainly loved reading it.

I really loved the book! I can totally understand where she is coming from with this duality thing and God because I have always felt that God just isn't male and has this female side too. Once again loved the book but I can't believe it as actually being true but I can see it as a theory. very Interesting read, I always love reading her books.

EVEN IF EVERYTHING IN THE BOOK ISN'T SOMETHING THAT YOU OR I WOULD AGREE UPON IT STILL HAD A LOT OF GOOD POINTS AND ONCE AGAIN I ENJOYED IT. IT IS ONE OF THOSE BOOKS THAT MAKES YOU THINK ABOUT ALL ASPECTS OF GOD AND RELIGION.

I really liked this book because it went through the history of the goddess briefly in the beginning. It was interesting to learn about the female gods of different cultures. It was an inspirational and hopeful book

Sylvia Browne always writes very clearly and concisely and does her research. It is always fascinating for me to read her books as I have many of the same principles and I've come to them on my own. Reading her books are like a long positive affirmation for me.

I found the first chapter interesting, but couldn't handle the mysticism of the rest. I don't think divinity is a simple and maluable as Browne claims.

I agree with what was written, but there were too many "advertisements" for Sylvia and her books, and too many letters included in the text.

This was pretty interesting. I wouldn't recommend starting here if you wanted to get into Sylvia Browne's books though. It gets in pretty deep.

I was impressed with her conviction about their being a Mother God, and the proof of the Gnostic Christian scriptures validating it was impressive.

I thought it was interesting. I have always liked Sylvia Browne, but now I'm not sure if she's truthful. I have doubt. I am just going to leave it at that.
