When we think of a Warrior, we naturally think of a man, clothed and armed for battle. Facing death & destruction to save & honour those placed in his protection. His energy enables us to sit back & to feel safe & as though everything will be ok.
So when I ask you what you see when I ask you to visualise a female Warrior, what is it you see? The ancient archetypes for so long buried by a patriarchal society, may take a while to come into your mind but relax & see what comes as you meditate or contemplate this question. Maybe you see a wild cave woman or muddied Earth Woman, perhaps Lara Croft springs to mind or even Cat Woman but interestingly we usually summon either an ancient vision or a super-futuristic heroin. Did you?
Thing is, most of us have become warriors to gain freedom and respect in this world but does this fighting and striving and focussing serve us anymore? Is this program outdated? Is there another way???
A NEW WAY, A FEMININE WAY
So I ask you to now visualize a Warrior Queen rather than a warrior woman. Does that change what your mind brings forth? A queen is quite different isn’t she? A Warrior Queen is not so much rushing forwards into battle, no, instead she sits back & understands the forces which work for & with her. She is calmer, slower to react, she has true power & charisma.
HEALING THE FEMININE
My work in healing my own & others´ female energy, which resides inside men AND women, has lead me down many amazing & sacred pathways, revealing such ancient information & knowledge that it has, at times, blown my mind.
There is so much to learn and re-gain & it is life-changing stuff! If you have watched or read the Di Vinci Code you will have begun this journey of understanding & will now question how the Bible was perhaps twisted to veer us towards fearing god, praising purely male figures & restraining women into purely nurturing roles or, if they dared outside of this boundary, to be cast as overtly sexual/ prostitutes & therefore evil.
THE RETURN OF THE DIVINE FEMININE
So journey with me for a moment & entertain this notion of a modern Warrior Queen; I woman who knows her rightful place on her metaphorical throne, who respects both her own intellect, her nurturing qualities and her own inner and outer strength. A woman who can lead or follow, love & conquer. A balance, which few of us may have cultivated yet but for sure a role model & goal for us all.
If we see the Warrior Queen as a potential now in 2015 then of course we don’t see her dressed in royal robes & a crown either & she has for sure battled through the days of fighting for her metaphorical throne, so neither does she need to veil her femininity in a suit of grey, building more of a male quality in order to be seen & heard & feel powerful & safe. Our modern Warrior Queen therefore feels elegant, at ease, whole, wise and beautiful. She is probably wearing whatever she wants to wear and feeling very good in that style, which is her own. She will not be blindly following fashion designed to help her fit into yet another exterior based status.
So as a Warrior Queen, does she actually truly FEEL that she is facing real battle anymore?
Do her daily dilemmas really require her to fight for freedom like a front line war situation?
Or is her daily process more about creating balance & calm in her relationships, business or society as a whole.
And I talk predominantly here of course about women of Western Society.
Whether you are working internally or externally on your life right now, seeing this woman as a Queen, shifts us from the whole concept of feminism & forging forwards, which required us to be coated in the masculinity I mention. Lead marching there for 50 years or more to be like men in order to gain the status and right to have an opinion as they were automatically given. We saw this as our goal but once achieved we might actually have felt exhausted or empty. Alternatively we might have used our femininity to sway or manipulate men but therefore still seeing men as the gatekeeper to our freedom.
WHERE ARE YOU ON THIS ROAD TO INNER AND OUTER FEMININE FREEDOM?
Taking off our armour we can feel so tired, so how do we retain the freedom we have created but also bring in some pleasure & enjoyment to this unbalanced linear thinking path we have been on for so long AND, not lose the foothold we have gained?
Seeing yourself as a Warrior Queen or, if you are a man, then knowing that inside you is this divinely powerful Queen energy, shifts everything.
The time has come. For many women now the fight is over. We can afford to relax a little but more each day. There are enough of us through the gateway to retain our place now and the more we relax into our throne & know that this is our natural and divine right, then the more we can stop the fighting & start to bring forth a genuine balance in our female & male energies. First of all in our inner worlds and then into the outer one.
Now is the time to allow through our Divine Feminine & to re-learn her incredible power, bringing forwards that which was branded and tainted as dark and bad for many, many thousands of years.
So welcome back you divinely feminine creatures. A new adventure is starting. You are here in a brand new world & it is up to each and every one of us to listen within & create from our more femininely guided queen-like responses, a new future for ourselves and all humans to come.
The planet needs YOU!
My work with my clients is practical and so I give you here 5 top tips on how to balance and merge your inner energies....
5 top tips for cultivating your warrior queen nature
1. Self care. Place yourself in the centre of your world is the most honest & nourishing thing you can do for yourself. Consider the oxygen mask on an airplane and how we are guided by the stewardess to put on out own mask before that of a baby or child.
No-one is safe if we are not breathing & alive!
2. Slow down. Making time to plan ahead & create sacred space for yourself is priceless. More haste less speed as the old saying goes.
3. Ask for help! Yes, being open to receive is the new gold so be open about your insecurities & needs & you will be amazed at who sees that as brave & offers you a hand!
4. Believe in magic. The universe is somewhat of a miracle really isn’t it & it is not up to us to hold it all together! No, not even YOU can do that & so believing in a higher power will open you up to relaxation & miracles.
5. What is happening outside of you is a direct mirror of how you feel about yourself. As within, so without. You cannot clean a spot off a mirror if the spot is on your own face. So let go of self-negative thoughts and see your life change.
