Anciently the Earth Goddess, but in its modern form means the personification of the nature energies. Down through the ages a very potent entity has been energized or vitalized by the collective concept, so that now Gaia (Pangaia) has a very real existence. Sometimes conceived as Mother Nature. However, Gaia is something more than Nature itself; it embraces the hold material Earth. It is, in fact, the enlivening spirit of Earth. Today, because of pollution and human explication of its resources, our Mother Planet is sick and needs all the assistance we can give it to bring it back into healthy balance. Gaia, as an intermediary, will play a significant part in restoring this balance.
