There are many types of women in our society, but the one that cries out for the healing the loudest is the Wounded Female Warrior. You long to transform yourself into the Goddess, even though you might not use those words to describe your longing.
Who is the Wounded Warrior?
The Wounded Warrior is powerful, independent, self-reliant and successful -- because you have to be. Yet, you resent all of the responsibility and obligation that goes with your role. You are the only one around who can get things done, and get things done fast enough and perfectly enough.
You are bitter (at least inwardly) toward men, who you believe get all the breaks, but do little of the real work. You see men as the weaker sex, responding emotionally and acting illogically - when they act at all. Long ago, you let go of the fantasy of a knight in shining armor or Prince Charming.
You respect other female Warriors, yet have no tolerance for "weaker" females who don't carry the Warrior's sword. You are, or were, a good wife and good a mother, protecting and providing for your family. Yet you express even these roles through the stance of a warrior.
You are tired of fighting. You displayed your battle wounds proudly in the past, but have now grown bored with conquest. Your armor is heavy and you long to remove it for good. You long for the Goddess within you; yet believe you couldn't survive without your Warrior's sword. Let me introduce you to -- the power of the Goddess.
Who is the Goddess?
The Goddess is quite simply -- the embodiment of the Divine in a female body. She is discerning and acts with integrity. She has a core of inner peace that is unshakable. The Goddess radiates an energy that is so powerfully beautiful, loving and soft, that others are drawn to her like a magnet.
She may have been a Wounded Warrior at one time, but she has healed her wounds. She has released the anger, pain, fear, guilt and judgment. She has let go of feelings of betrayal and abandonment. She has replaced those lower-vibrational emotions with compassion and joy. She has transformed her limiting beliefs, attitudes, and thought patterns into a loving allowance for all to be as they are. She has no need to change anybody, for she sees the Divine in all beings. She understands that any attack is simply a demonstration of fear. She remembers fear, and yet knows how to neutralize it with her unlimited flow of love.
The Wounded Warrior and the Goddess -- two powerful female archetypes. One tired and wounded; one radiant and healed. How did the Warrior get wounded? And how can she transform herself into the Goddess? To answer these questions, you must first understand how energy moves in humans.
What are Male and Female Energy Patterns?
Energy has patterns of movement and we can call one pattern male, the other female. The male pattern of movement is assertive; it initiates action. In humans it expresses itself through the mind, as a need to understand, analyze, find the limits, make plans and take action. In its highest expression, male energy loves to give, protect and provide comfort and safety in the physical reality. All human beings have a male aspect, sometimes called the inner male.
Likewise, each individual has an inner female. This energy pattern is receptive and responsive - an open space with defined boundaries. Yet the open space is dark and mysterious. The feminine is comfortable with the unknown. From this mystery springs creativity and intuition. It is the womb - nourishing and nurturing. Female energy expresses through the heart, through the senses - using its creativity to give birth to an outer space that is inviting, nourishing and sensual.
Ideally, each individual would have the healthy, mature male and female aspects working together as equal partners. Yet, this is rarely the case. As humans experience the slings and arrows of life, their inner males and/or females become wounded, and their development arrested. So a Wounded Warrior is a female who predominantly expresses male energy because her female aspect is wounded and dysfunctional.
How Did You Become a Warrior?
There are several possibilities. You may have grown up feeling that your father did not provide the required safety and protection. Maybe your father was absent emotionally or physically. Or maybe you had a father that expressed mostly the feminine energy, not modeling a mature male archetype. You may have modeled yourself after your mother or other influential female that was a Warrior. You may feel betrayed or abandoned by one or both her parents. You may feel you need to play the role of the male and be the provider and protector of the family. You may have decided that you needed to develop warrior-like qualities to survive in the business world.
Whatever the reason, you put on your armor and you fight. You fight for yourself, your family, your job, recognition and validation. You accumulate wounds, battle scars and conquests too. Your ego is over-taxed and your soul cries out for retirement.
How Does Ego Operate?
Your ego plays a very important role when you are in a physical body, on this planet. It is your ego's job to protect you. Moment to moment, your ego scans your database, stored in the DNA of your cells, for memories (conscious or subconscious) that are similar to the situation you are currently engaged in. If ego finds any memories similar to the current situation that resulted in your being hurt, it tries to protect you from being hurt again.
It may throw up thoughts of fear and doubt. It may initiate thoughts, beliefs or memories that distract you from participating in the situation. Sometimes it will create roadblocks that will prohibit you from participating, such as limitations of time, financial setbacks and even illness. It will do anything to protect you.
These defenses keep you limited to reacting the same way you always have. And guess what? If you react the same way, you will get the same results. No new experiences can come from this. You can't grow from this. You are married to the sameness.
How Does the Soul Use the Law of Attraction?
The reason you encounter hurtful situations is because of the hurtful energy that is stored inside your DNA. Your soul it is always seeking to bring you back to health and joy. It tries to release hidden and suppressed energy. It uses the Law of Attraction (like attracts like) to magnetize the people and situations that will trigger the opportunity for release.
That's why, as a wounded female warrior, you attract wounded men. They trigger you and give you the opportunity to clear and release this stored energy. You CAN clear the hurtful energy in the DNA. And when you do, you begin moving through your life without the hurtful cellular memory. Your ego's job is much easier because there is no hurtful energy to be released - you are not drawing hurtful situations anymore. When you move into a new situation and your ego scans for hurtful memories, it can't find any. So your ego allows you to move into new experiences with no limitations.
How does the Warrior Transform into the Goddess?
It's a four-step process:
1. Sacred Union of Inner Male and Inner Female
2. Sacred Union of Ego and Spirit
3. Birthing the Divine Human
4. Sacred Union Relationships
How to Recognize a Goddess
The Goddess enjoys and expresses her femininity with courage. She finds that both men and women are easier to work and play with than ever before. She has let go of her suppressed feelings of betrayal and abandonment and radiates the energy of trust. So others open up, let down their walls and she draws out the trustworthiness and integrity in them.
She treats others with understanding and kindness. Yet she is discerning and knows how to draw boundaries when appropriate. She speaks the truth, from her heart, with respect, honoring the feelings of others.
There are many aspects of the Goddess. She can be like Isis, expressing the Creator Mother aspect. She can express Aphrodite; the loving, sensual and sexual playmate aspect. She can express Kahli, the destroyer of that which no longer serves. She can express a Warrior Goddess, the protector that knows how to draw and protect boundaries. The difference is now that she is healed and whole, she can call upon whatever aspect of the Goddess best serves her in any moment. She is no longer limited to only acting out the part of the Wounded Warrior.
She radiates the energy of Sacred Union within herself and that magnetizes a Sacred Union partner to her in the physical world.
