I've been working on undertanding and reclaiming my warrior energy as well as maturing the shadow side of it. This has been a conscious exercise with a professional counselor. In online reading last night I stumbled on this article. [hypelink above]
There's so much wrong with the beginning of this article. There may be a few truisms, but there's a framing of warrior energy that's so negative. There doesn't seem to be any discussion of the "realized warrior", a woman who is clear and focused about what she wants. There's certainly no honoring the way she shows up in the world and works -- and struggles just like everyone else -- to make evolved choices. I'd be interested in the view of others in the group.
