Several texts say Ninlil (“wife of Enlil”) was of divine origin, However, according to the Sumerian text titled Enlil and Sud, Enlil’s wife was a human woman named Sud. Enlil was taken by her beauty (sounds like Genesis 6) and pursued her.
To her credit, she played hard to get and didn’t just rollover for the “god.” Eventually, Enlil persuaded Sud and her family of his intentions and they were married. Soon after, Ninlil gave birth to their first child, Nanna, the Moon god.
She was known as the “Lady of the wind” particularly the south wind. Some scholars have associated her with the Lilith tales in Hebrew mythology.
About Ray Davis - The Affirmation Spot
I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment.
I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company.
I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
