Words of wisdom from Lioness

A few months ago, Lioness stepped forward as one of my spirit guides.

To the right and left of her were She-Wolf and Mama Bear. But Lioness was the Queen.

It was at a time when my son was going back and forth to the hospital as he was having post-operative complications.

I was exhausted and wondering why God was putting us through this. I remember it so clearly: I was sat on the hospital bed while my son was fast asleep.

We were waiting for the nurse to take us to the operating theatre. I had just read a passage from the book Women Who Run With The Wolves. 

Suddenly, it felt like my brain went a bit loopy and visions started appearing in front of me, like a movie.

The first was Lioness in the savannah. Then She-Wolf in the woods. Then Mama Bear next to a river.

And then Lioness started speaking straight to me.

She talked to me about fearlessness, feminine animal instinct and sovereignty.

She taught me one of the most important lessons I've been given this year: that I no longer have to struggle or prove myself to deserve what I desire. That I have struggled my whole life and always survived through life's challenges, but now was the time to take my rightful place on my throne.

She said to me: 

"From now on, nobody - not even yourself, has the right to shame you for how you choose to live your life, or to make you feel that you are unworthy of what you desire. You are a Lioness. Royal feminine blood runs through your veins. A Lioness doesn't ask the other lions and lionesses if she can have what she wants. She simply claims it as hers. And a lioness is not afraid of the challenges that life throws at her because she knows she has the strength, instinct and fearlessness to survive and thrive."

I'm so grateful for all the things Lioness taught me this year. She awakened within me a fearlessness and a fierceness that I had never known till that moment.

Her energy is not as present around me these days. I believe she came to me when I needed her the most, and once I had assimilated her lessons, she moved on. But anytime I'm feeling scared or unsure of myself, I call on her and she floods my energy with such strength, fierceness and royalty that I feel like there's nothing I can't do.

Thank you Mama Lioness!
