The history we’ve been taught is 99% lies. Talk about Colonization, originated in Patriarchy and the 1% who rewrote to suit their needs. The #Olympics were founded by female partheno- genesis priestesses who raced in honor of Hera. The Olympian Games started in The Heraean Games, dedicated to Goddess Hera, the queen of the Olympian gods, later Zeus’ wife, was the 1st official women’s athletic competition to be held in the Olympic stadium at Elis. The 6th century BC, games were held in the Olympic year itself, prior to the men’s games.
The 1st woman champion of the Olympics was Cynisca, A Spartan woman who won the four-horse chariot race twice, in 396 and 392 BC. She was honoured by a bronze statue of her with chariot and horses, “The Chariot” in Tarot #7 erected in the Temple of Zeus in Olympia. The statue had an inscription declaring that she was “the only woman in all Hellas to have won this crown”.
“The ancient Olympic Games began in the year 776 BC, when Koroibos, a cook from the nearby city of Elis, won the stadion race, a 600 foot long race. Some literary traditions, this was the only athletic event of the games for the first 13 Olympic festivals or until 724 BC. From 776 BC, the Games were held at Olympia every four years for almost 12 centuries.”
Contrary evidence, -WHICH IS ALWAYS THE REAL TRUTH- both literary and archaeological, suggests that the games may have existed at Olympia much earlier than this date, perhaps as early as the 10th or 9th century BC. A series of bronze tripods found at Olympia, some date to the 9th century BC, suggested that these tripods-famous for the TRIPLE GODDESS-HEKATE, or the Maiden, Mother, Chrone may have been prizes for some of the early events at Olympia
“The Temple of Hera, or Heraion, is an ancient Archaic Greek temple at Olympia, Greece, that was dedicated to Hera, queen of the Greek Gods. It was the oldest temple at Olympia and one of the most venerable in all Greece.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_of_Hera,_Olympia
i also feel that the origin of the word Heretic was originally from HERA.
“A heresy is a belief that doesn’t agree with the official tenets of a particular religion; heresy is the maintaining of such contrary beliefs.
Heresy can be used figuratively: to disagree with the school committee’s decisions is considered pure heresy by the faculty. You’ll often come across this word in a religious context — the Latin root haeresis, “school of thought or sect,” was used by Christian writers to mean “unorthodox sect or belief.” This comes from the Greek hairesis, “a taking or choosing,” from hairein, “to choose.” A person who chooses to believe in heresies is called a heretic.” https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/heresy
This is the Instagram article that my friend and colleague Michelle White Hart who is part of the Womb Technology Group posted about the origin of the Olympics https://www.instagram.com/p/CR7TieMBvj6/?utm_medium=share_sheet quoting from scholar Marguerite Rigoglioso PHD. books -Virgin Mother Goddesses of Antiquity and The Cult of Divine Birth in Ancient Greece https://www.amazon.ca/Virgin-Mother-Goddesses-Antiquity-Rigoglioso/dp/113729342X/ref=pd_lpo_2?pd_rd_i=113729342X&psc=1
When you visit the Temple of Hera at Olympia, you’ll notice small vertical cuts on the columns of the east façade of Heraion. According to scholars, these cuts were made in ancient times to host the portraits of the young girls who had won running races in honour of Hera, Zeus’ wife, who was also worshipped in Olympia.
