Goddess Ninlil



Ninlil: Sumerian birth goddess.

Ninsun was raped (some say seduced) and pregnant several times by her husband, Enlil, who pretended to be water spirits and guardians.

She gave birth to three offspring as a result of these interludes, becoming the mother of the moon, rivers, and the underworld.

Ninlil is a goddess of barley and flora who assists in the treatment of infertility and barrenness.

She assists women in recovering from the trauma of rape and guiding them toward wholeness.
