Let’s say you’re with a man, a friend, a potential client, a boss, a coworker – and in this very moment you feel totally torn and totally conflicted.
Two sides of you are trying to gain control of your mind and your actions.
Something is happening that does not feel good.
It could be this person asking you to do something or go somewhere that you just don’t feel like doing are going.
Or it could be something he does — roll his eyes or dismiss you in words, comment about another woman’s attractiveness right in front of you, comment on another person’s talents, gifts, skills and results… ick…
Part of you wants to smash him (or her) in the face.
Wants to grab him by his jacket or his shirt and shake him and toss him until he behaves. Another part of you is terrified that if you even question for a moment what he’s done or asked for… you will be labeled as needy, complaining, insecure, a drama queen, and he will move away from you and maybe even leave you.
This is what I call walking on eggshells.
And you’d be surprised how many of us are caught in this loop. We either blurt out everything we want changed and stick to our guns and air our opinions and requests for change and then feel terrible and frightened and angrier afterward… or we sit on stuff, telling ourselves that we are poised, we are confident, we are together, we don’t have to get all upset about this “thing,” we have a sense of humor, we can talk about this reasonably.
And sometimes that voice is right! Sometimes what you’re all bent out of shape about is hardly worth even a moment of your brainpower.
Sometimes you’re just looking in the wrong place, hearing the wrong thing, focusing on the wrong part of what’s going on around you.
So what’s the Warrior in you to do? What exactly do you champion? How do you champion yourself here, when you don’t know which “yourself” to listen to?
Let’s start with a definition: A Siren, in the Siren world, is a woman of gravity. We embody gravity. We gravitate to ourselves.
- We allow the parts of us in touch with the power of Chaos, the parts allowing the utter organicness of universal feminine energy to move through us, to – without “trying” – draw in the universe of matter, people, things.
To get the basics of the Rori Raye “Business Siren Protocols” and a whole NEW way of looking at, being with, and acting in the world, your work, your love life and yourself, here’s The Business Siren’s Handbook to help you turn everything around:
Along with this gravitational pull we all have, each of us individually and automatically – as women, as the Origin, as Chaos bringing inspiration to life, comes a way to DEAL with all of this energy coming at us – and to square that with all the other parts of ourselves living our regular, day-to-day lives!
We can call this “sense” anything we want – so, today, if you like the name, the idea, the concept of “Warrior Woman,” here’s an idea of how to use it for yourself:
Let’s say your inner “Warrior” is simply gazing at all the open “doors” inside you. She’s not “patrolling” – she’s simply there to add her heft to keeping the doors OPEN – no matter what – and helping you believe that you’re just fine without closing a door to something you don’t like.
- In other words – she’s not the “gatekeeper” in the sense of being in charge of who and what gets “let in” – she’s there to assure you that whatever comes in is good, is right, is usable, is information…and that whatever isn’t good and right for you in that moment will simply not come to the door.
- That her very presence at the doors speaks for you in the universe – so that you can go about being as creative, magical, open, big and in love with yourself and life as you can imagine.
Your Warrior doesn’t have to fight.
She’s there to remind you that the doors are open. She’s there to help you feel brave. To make choices.
To stay in the present moment, to stay in your heart and creative juices instead of in your head asking questions from the parts of you who’re afraid.
Your inner Warrior just allows that archetype of spears and weapons and physical power to lend energy when needed.
