Think Like a Warrior, Feel Like a Poet!

Think Like a Warrior

 

I’m on a mission to help awaken and heal the feminine within ourselves and the world.

From the Vedic tradition, the feminine is our source of nourishment and vitality. If this aspect is repressed or disempowered within ourselves, you can bet that a lot of shit happens. Our life path becomes unfulfilling and unclear, it particular affects our relationships, or lack thereof. We’re likely to get bullied by others and be amidst toxic situations and people. Ultimately we are disconnected from our sense of self – the home of innate power.


We know however that the feminine is awakening from centuries old oppression. As the imbalanced masculine force expressed as patriarchy – the shadow, rises, Shakti, our feminine life force energy fights back.

She is everything that moves, our emotional and mental waves, our breath. Archetypes include the moon, earth and water; she is creator and destroyer; she is the warrior and the healer, for everything in this universe is animated by her energy.

Are you awake and alive to this potent and vibrant energy within? Do you create your world consciously or does life just happen and pass you by?

Disconnection from our divine feminine power leads to so many consequences. Here are a few:

  • Unconscious emotional reactions to external circumstances
  • Intense emotional pain and suffering
  • Lack of clarity and feeling stuck on how to move forward
  • Experience of self-doubt, fear, anxiety and other draining emotions
  • Lack of nourishment and support from others
  • Chaos and disharmony in relationships and personal situations
  • Lack of motivation to step into our power and true purpose

 

This disconnection from Shakti, our goddess power, is also a disconnection from our mental body. Yet, we can use our minds to enter our emotional body, our source of power.

How? Through writing or journaling! Through directing our thoughts on to paper to see what is actually going on internally.


The mind is like the cosmic moon, its nature is to move in cycles, influencing the emotional waves. Our mind can be a great nourisher, like the ocean, if we keep it in sync with our inner waters (the feeling body). The mind however, is not grounded in the real and the now. 

Watch, therefore, your mind, but trust only your feelings!


We need to anchor the mind to the body, which exists in the present moment.

To create a bridge between our mind and body, we need to think like a warrior and feel like a poet! Train the mind by having a daily journaling practice—ideally in the morningsthis is sometimes called ‘morning pages’ or a ‘stream of consciousness writing’. This practice relieves stress, chaos, confusion and releases our repressed or pent up emotions. Confronting our thoughts takes courage. We need the energy of the warrior!

 

Martial artists naturally embody the warrior archetype; we work on training our minds regularly to succeed in sparring matches and in general when training. In my kung fu practice we are always moving towards a goal, always gleaning the inner layers to find a balance between stillness and movement. Even Bruce Lee honoured the feeling body, “Don’t think, feeeel!” he says in Enter the Dragon. Master how the mind operates, awaken to the feminine, the feeling body –this is where power resides. Self-discipline and repetition is key for this self-mastery.


Learn to feel like a poet, keep the pen moving, writing down anything and everything that comes to mind. This may be your daily fears; express your pain! Whatever comes through. As you write, you’ll notice that you’ll naturally move from the level of mind to the level of feeling. Be playful if you wish. Doodle. Scribble. Draw. Colour. Or just write. This clears stagnant energy from the mental body and also moves stuck energy from the other ‘Koshas’, or layers of our being, including the emotional, physical and spiritual.

Writing is an embodiment practice. Pen and paper become an extension of our physical body. Ink becomes Shakti. Our feelings, however raw or poetic, become expressed and anchored visually. This is a way to awaken and pin point the matter that is dormant or unconsciously whirling around our energy field, triggering unpleasant emotions.

Once you have filled out a page, notice how a sense of nourishment arrives as you’ve now created a space to receive! This is the receptive aspect of the feminine. There is a clearing and a depth of clarity created through this ’emptying out’ process.

A daily journaling practice helps us develop our ‘voice’ and evaluate our needs better, it gives us a container in which we can clearly express ourselves. This leads to being better able to communicate our needs to other people and to reacting more calmly to external triggers.
 
Deepen the relationship with yourself. Allow nourishment to arrive by clearing space. Gain control over your unconscious reactions. Connect to your emotional body now!

I have a quest coming up to help you with this process! ‘Enter the Dragon’s Cave’ an 11 Day Writing Challenge to Awaken the Shero Within.’ Join now! Take the quest with other sensitive souls and awaken your warrior spirit! Join my private Facebook group: Warrior Training for the Sensitive Soul. It starts soon!

Daily journaling practice leads to deep wisdom gained as Shakti, the divine feminine is your inner intelligence. Find the stillness within the chaos, find the right action within the stillness.

 The stillness in stillness is not the real stillness; only when there is stillness in movement does the universal rhythm manifest. – Bruce Lee

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you?

The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t
