Sekhmet~ Be Strong

"You are stronger than you think you are, and your strength assures a happy outcome."

Message from Sekhmet: "See yourself as strong and victorious. Don't complain about anything. Don't blame anyone or any condition. You're the embodiment of strength, not victimhood. As you rise above the old tendencies and see yourself in the new light of feminine strength, your life will automatically shift in miraculous ways. You'll attract new opportunities, forms of abundance, and relationships to help you manifest your highest potential. Being strong means seeing yourself in the most favorable light you can imagine. Be real, allow yourself to feel genuine emotions, but most of all, be strong."~ written by, Doreen Virtue for her Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards.

Join me in embracing this Egyptian Sun Goddess. Join me in creating a movement of inner strength. Because I have yet to see myself in a favorable light. Truly. I am still mired in old tendencies to find fault with myself, to deprive myself of goodness, to tell myself, subtly and overtly in the secret chambers of my mind, I do not deserve. I continue to victimize myself with my own thoughts. I continue to take things personally. My shadow side is fighting to preserve its existence, sensing a shift that bodes not in its favor. I am weary to the bone.

So, I call upon Sekhmet, lion-headed woman of strength, to lighten my view of myself. I call upon her to ground me through food and tasks and thoughts that press me back to earth. I call upon her to help me know the power of my feminine gifts. I call upon her tame the enemy within, scared child that it is.

I ask for consistent strength to see my own value and love all parts of myself. To quell my complaining and see with clear eyes the beauty within and without. Not sporadically, not only when in a good mood or under the influence of perfectly aligned stars, but consistently, whether I am dancing in the shadow or the light. Let me understand, dear Sekhmet, dear God, dear weary Self, how to support myself in all ways and reap the rewards of living my highest potential. Will you join me?
