What does it really mean to connect to a goddess?

I wonder why we use that lexicon to connect to the “higher” realms of our being/consciousness. When I look back on the lengthy reign of gods and goddesses throughout history, there is so much strife, entanglement, and suffering created by these so-called deities.
