A Goddess Tribute

View More:

There is a deep seeded passion. One that moves back into time and space. Where a young girl believes she can save the world. To be a protector of what she holds dear in her heart. Loved ones, her family, an idea, a belief, the natural world. Her heart lifts out of her chest like the Thunderbird, and propels itself forward as she knows from the depths of her core this is something sacred.

She carries a message within her, that she may not even be aware of at the time. But, like a blossoming of a flower ripens with age and experience. She knows she is nurturing something. She feels the strength building inside of her like the swelling of the tides. It rises within her like the flame of pure passion as she feels it in her throat like a ball rising to be released. It is in this process and moment of clarity that she links this to all that she has been leading up to at this point.
It is the message her soul has been waiting for, and the timeliness that the Earth and her People need in this moment.

She embraces herself now as a Woman. A Goddess. A Fighter of the Good Fight.

Yes, there may be struggle, but she rises up like the Phoenix burning away her own fears, worries, and inner demons. She carries a fierceness within her. Not from anger, or self righteousness, but from the devotion of herself and connection to spirit, that she has a purpose, a mission. That only she can bring forth in her authenticity and unique nature.

She sees her truth and revels in the humility of her own reflection. She bows her heart to Source as she is also a witness of the Creator within.

She is the Mystery. She carries the void of pure potential within her womb, and cradles it with the grace of her own emotional maturity and conscious nature.
She is you. She is me. We recognize this in all the women and men of the ages, as we heal the collective karma of abuse and discontention.

She slays the negative aspects of the lower ego, and vibration that has her captured, and through her connection to the Divine, she knows what to do. She balances the world, and the illusion, as she balances the duality within herself.

She knows she embodies the feminine, acknowledges the masculine and child in her oneness. And exemplifies this in how she reacts to this world. She has an awareness of herself, she looks deep into the mirror of her soul, and not the superficial veneer. If she goes deep, she will find magic. She will touch the universe and open the veils of a world of possibilities. She closes the door to the world that tells her, no.
She is a force. And she owns the Goddess within.

She has enchantment in her eyes. A pillar of power in her stance. Her attention and focus is like the straightest of arrows. She focuses on her target with absolute conviction. She pulls back her bow in a silent crescendo, as she knows it is in the moment of release, and letting go, she must fill herself with a stillness. And only the purity of her breathe, and life force moves straight into the belly of her desires.

She is a catalyst for growth, a way finder, a seeker and quester of life’s great mysteries. She sees the teacher in everyone she meets, as it is an opportunity to witness the uniqueness of the Universe. She knows that all of you carry the stars, and the planets from within.

Flirt with Struggle

Wonder Woman

I awoke with the remembrance of wrestling a T-Rex dinosaur in my dreamworld. Hearing very clearly the words, Flirt with Struggle.

I decided to follow an instinct to find more spiritual clues around this, as spirit has a way of revealing wonders and profound insights. Sometimes, you just have to track, and pick up the trail when you find that you may be at a starting point of an intuitive pathway, teaching, or an unraveling message from the Divine.

I started where most of modern day explorers of information begin.. Google. Typing in the words “woman wrestling dinosaur”. What image comes up, but WONDER WOMAN riding T-REX almost as if she is taming the Beast!

With the recent movie coming to the Big Screen, a lot of women especially have connected with this Goddess Warrior Icon throughout the years. Wonder Woman symbolizes a strength that every woman could embody in their process of moving through challenge, obstacles, self perceived villains, and defending what is important to them.

It felt very clear that this representation of Wonder Woman embodied the words spoken of in my dream. The clues unravel further as I head into work that morning. I received a message from a client saying she is running a little late. Just enough time to go for a little walk as I felt compelled to go outside on a beautiful blustery day. There are always oppurtunites around us to connect with ourselves, and our environments. When we can move in states of surrendering and allow a higher state of awareness to guide us. You never know what mysteries and communications may surround you. Something catches my eye in a storefront window. It’s a human sized T-Rex stuffed animal! Not your typical Trex, but a colorful vibrant blue, spotted T-Rex!

Now, isn’t that flirty and creative, I thought! How interesting are these subtle cues from the Universe. One must ask, how is this applicable to me as I use this as mirror to my own reflection, my own psyche, and internal process? The more I surrender to signs such as this, the more it reveals the awareness within oneself. Potentially answers we are searching for on this river of life.

As I reflect on its teaching I integrate how one must allow struggle to be a doorway of growth, where you can rise to the occasion with strength, and confidence. It’s in the resistance that we seek the greatest growth and evolution of how we move through the challenge.

Either we can allow our struggle, fear, or inner demons control us or we can lessen the degree of its impact on us, by knocking it off of the pedestal. Taming the beast, the metaphorical T-Rex. When we place emphasis on what bogs us down is when we give our power away. Of course there are things we have no control over. But, how we allow it to effect us on an emotional and physical level drives it deeper into the core, creating a foundation of weakness, of seperation, and sometimes even shame. Break the cycle. Most profoundly when this story is repeating and looping itself time and time again. How do I step off this hamster wheel of confusion? The beautiful thing is with repetition comes predictability. What pieces of this puzzle can you rearrange, the pieces you do have control over. The pieces you can be responsible for, emotional mastery. May we position ourselves to be in our alignment. And when we find those moments to step off and recourse the trajectory that allows us to create something different.
Dress up your demons, make them colorful, less intimidating. Transform your normal reactions to the obstacle, and flirt with struggle. Lessen it’s power by releasing the hold it has on you. Recognize opportunities to learn about yourself as you evolve and transform these monsters into allies.
