In Greek mythology, Gaia ( / ˈ ɡ eɪ ə, ˈ ɡ aɪ ə/; [2] Ancient Greek: Γαῖα, romanized: Gaîa, a poetic form of Γῆ ( Gê), meaning 'land' or 'earth'), [3] also spelled Gaea / ˈ dʒ iː ə/, [2] is the personification of the Earth. [4] Gaia is the ancestral mother—sometimes parthenogenic—of all life. She is the mother of Uranus (Sky), from whose sexual union she bore the Titans (themselves parents of many of the Olympian gods), the Cyclopes, and the Giants; as well as of Pontus (Sea), from whose union she bore the primordial sea gods. Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Terra. [5] Etymology [ edit ] Most frequently, Gaia was worshiped in relation to Demeter rather than as an individual deity. More specifically, Mother Earth was included in worship rituals by the cult of Demeter that were unique to her being a Chthonic deity. As Zeus and his comrades established their new seat of power at Mount Olympus, Gaia turned against them next. In the cosmology of early Greece, these beings existed together with the other prime elemental deities. Gaia was represented as a flat disk with the sea encircling her and the mountains resting on her breast.

So many Giants were buried within Gaia that it was said that earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, relatively common occurrences around the Mediterranean, were the result of the great creatures moving in their underground tombs. The magnitude of healing plants is astounding. From fresh flowers, to trees, mushrooms to bark, every culture understands the blessings of the plants to heal human ailments.

On what is called the Gaion (Gaeum, Sanctuary of Ge) [at Olympia] is an altar of Ge (Earth); it too is of ashes. In more ancient days they say that there was an oracle also of Ge (Earth) in this place. On what is called the Stomion (Mouth) the altar to Themis has been built. [53]Floyd, Edwin (1968).
