I’m not quite a Queen 👑 But I am ready to be
The seer in me has brought light to she: The damsel in distress
My denial of her is the cause of the distress I’ve been feeling
So today, at the end of my tether, I decided to acknowledge her. I took a very close look at her, without looking away as I have been until now.
She is a total princess, waiting for a prince to sweep her off her feet
She cries for help; awaiting the knight in shining armour, wanting none other than him to rescue her –
yet she possesses the very sword required to set herself free 🗡
She expects golden opportunities to be served up on a platter;
She thinks she should be able to have whatever she wants, when she wants it – she shouldn’t have to work for it!
She is daddy’s girl – in a woman’s body
Her frivolity might seem like freedom
But now I see – it has been keeping me bound
No wonder these very traits have been triggering me as I have seen them arise in others lately -I’ve been refusing to see her in me.
I’ve felt ashamed of her
I’ve kept her locked up
Denying her existence
Ironically – this is the very thing that has kept her alive;
holding me back from my Queendom
It is time to face the dragon 🐉
Keeping her in the shadows has been a convenient way to avoid responsibility
So I take responsibility for her now
As an emerging queen I am coaching her –
how to use the sword that is within her
And letting her know that there is no part of her that actually needs saving.
Her insistence on being saved is the very reason she is trapped
Her inaction is keeping her stuck
No longer can I deny my true power
I have a damn fine knight within me:
A capable inner man who is being called to step forth
It is time for me to recognise my own agency;
to step into the next level of self-sovereignty
So I’m rewriting the myth
As of today
I am no longer a damsel in distress
I am a queen in the making
Next weekend I will be taking part in a special initiation which I have been in preparation for these last 3 months -a traditional indigenous rite of passage into womanhood
And lately, it’s been hella deep, dark & messy as I’ve met my most resistant resistances (Hello!) and teetering on some damn edgy edges .
But already – I feel more whole, free & powerful. Ready as ever.
👑 Queendom is coming!
