In Shamanic understanding, all words are spells. Everything we think or say cascades into reality. When I repeat to myself the thought that I’m not that smart, or beautiful, or deserving, I’m literally cursing myself.

Hathor, Museo Egizio
Basalt statue of the Ancient Egyptian goddess Hathor. From the New Kingdom, 18th dynasty (reign of Amenhotep III 1388-1351BC).
The statue was commissioned by Amenhotep III to celebrate his Sed Festival. Uniquely, in this depiction she holds a was-sceptre (not shown here), a symbol of power normally associated only with male gods. The statue was brought to Turin in 1753.
Hathor is the goddess of music, dancing, joy etc. and is often represented as a cow, hence the horns.
