It takes courage to be a warrior. It takes courage to raise your sword to fight for what you believe in, to fight for your self or your loved ones. But do you know what takes even more courage?
It takes even more courage to put down your sword when you have been wielding it for so long that if feels as if it has become a part of your arm.
When man got lost and began using his physical strength to wield power over woman instead of using it to keep her safe, woman was forced to forge and pick up her own sword. But two cannot embrace and merge fully while one or both still carry their swords, for fear of attack. Cuddling with swords is not to be encouraged! The generations of fear, distrust and lack of respect that have been passed down through the generations mean that it is difficult to relinquish grip on the handle of the sword that has been protector and security for so long.
So a new kind of courage is needed. The courage to surrender all weapons. The courage to be vulnerable. The courage to own our shadows. The courage to be vulnerable. The courage to allow ourselves to relax and soften and be held by another who will at times need to be held too.
The repairing of the bridge between man and woman is essential if we are to create a kinder, more compassionate world for our children and the generations to come. As we lay down the sword we can use our hands to apply healing balms and herbs that will restore health and wholeness to each other. These warrior hands must become accustoming to caring, nurturing, caressing ourselves as well as each other if we are to restore balance and union to the divine masculine and feminine at the heart of men and women. As we heal ourselves and keep looking within to banish the fear and shadows we soften and can melt and blend into the arms of another more fully and completely.
Don’t you too yearn to be held?
There is much work to be done and this new warrior work is to be guided by forgiveness, integrity, deep honesty and a fierce passion for peace and love. This new courage of surrender, of nakedness is not for the faint of heart. For we will find ourselves automatically reaching for our sword time and time again when we are triggered and our wounds are activated. But fighting is not the answer. When we deeply commit to a new way of being, Life moves to support and aid us in our healing, blossoming and growth. We are not alone in this journey because everything is divinely orchestrated for our highest good.
Can you put your sword in the ground and truly say that you forgive all that has gone before? That you are ready to live your life anew from your desire to taste the nectar of divine union and become the heart warrior that you always really were?
Then use your intention now to embrace yourself and allow yourself to be held by another who is also committed to this forgotten way of being. It takes a warrior to great courage to lay down the sword but this is the prerequisite to coming home to divine union with self or with another. You cannot take your sword into the bedroom!
There has been enough bloodshed, enough disrespect, enough violation, enough manipulation. We have learn well what love is not. Now it is time to realise and embody the truth of love. There is no more time for internal or external battles; it is time for peace. It is time for us to lay down our weapons and melt into union. It is time for the warriors of the heart.
