There are many goddesses who are associated with healing, and the healing waters, trees, and shrines. We light candles in their honor and pray to them to help us maintain our health and for the well-being of our friends and family. We make pilgrimages to their places of veneration, and often, these places are sites that are associated with miracles, and the landscape itself appears to be imbued with healing energies. The short tale below is the story of Mella, an African healing Goddess.

The Goddess Mella from Zimbabwe is invoked for both healing and for courage. The tale goes that her father became very ill and dying a slow death,; there was no one who was able to help him. Mella could not just sit back and watch her father die so she sought out the Moon Goddess to ask for her help. The Moon Goddess advised her that she must seek out the most dangerous of creature, the Python Healer, if she had any hopes of helping her father. Mella was terrified of this, but she was also a very brave young Goddess, and went to the Python Healer's cave and pleaded for his help. He then wrapped himself around her, and She carried him off to her father who was then cured.

Mella then carried the Python Healer back to his cave. He invited her to step inside before she left, and when Mella entered the cave, She saw the most amazing jewels and riches...more than she had ever seen in her young life. The Python Healer then told Mella she may choose what she wanted as a gift for herself for not so many were as courageous as she. Mella asked huim to choose for her, and he picked out a beautiful necklass with a moon pendant. And, eventually, when Mella became the Queen, She had a statue carved of the Python Healer and had it placed in a prominent position in the village.

The above tale illustrates selflessness and the overcoming of a great fear in order to bring about healing and change. Whenever you need healing in your life, meditate on the story of Mella.
