Who Else Wants to be a Warrior Goddess?



“That horse looks like a Warrior Goddess,” said one of my recent participants at an equine-assisted singles workshop.

She’s tall, gorgeous, and reeks of charm, indeed, her name is Charm.

She’s playful and a bit mischievous.

She's confident and comfortable in her body. She runs for the pure joy of it.



But she’s obviously strong, independent, and no one is going to mess with her.


You have to earn her respect before she’ll do anything for you.

But once you’ve shown you are worthy, she’s open, receptive, heck even downright affectionate.

She knows how to stand in her power, yet be gentle and give and receive love.


She doesn't question her own worth. She just knows she's worthy.

Wow- if that’s what it means to be a Warrior Goddess, sign me up!

Doesn’t that describe a wonderful way to inhabit our femininity in the world?

To stand in your power, to assert your needs, to set healthy boundaries, yet at the same time remain open to connection, be able to offer and receive gentle love. And be playful, yet strong.

Who wouldn’t be attracted to that kind of woman???

Ok, wussy men wouldn’t. But any man worthy of YOU, would be.

So today, in honor of all of the women workshop participants who learned



To embody their power,


To own their worthiness,


To feel the exhilaration of being fully alive and insisting on being treated well,

I offer up, for your consideration, the ancient archetype of the Warrior Goddess.

Would you like to be a Warrior Goddess?

What would that mean in your life?
What behaviors and beliefs would you need to let go of because they no longer serve you?
What gifts and abilities would you have to reclaim?

Are you up for the challenge???

Because in this world, you either stand up and be the leader of your own life, or you’ll be led by someone or something else.

When you choose, the warrior goddess will be there.


Take her into your heart and let her fiery, yet sweet energy revitalize and inspire you so that you can create the love you’ve only dreamed of.

Reclaim your power.

It’s the only path to true love.

And if you need some help, my dear friends, the horse herd here at the Happily Ever After Healing Horse Ranch, are more than willing to show you how!

Want to see more love lessons from the horse herd? Follow along with the participants as they discover the Wisdom of the Body through the Way of the Horse. Access the Picture show here.

Readers: What aspect of the Warrior Goddess do you most need to incorporate into your life right now?


And if you are a guy. does the Warrior Goddess excite you or intimidate you? Why?

Please comment.

LOL -- my friends and I constantly lament that there are a LOT more wussy guys out there than the ones who aren't "intimidated" by us Warrior Goddesses.

Despite the opposition (or perhaps because of it), we remain centered in our strength and able to give and receive love and look forward to meeting the men who can do the same. *grin*

Kelli- You know, I am hearing that all of the time lately!!

But for every 5 wussy guys, there has to be at least 1 or 2 men who are up for the lifelong challenge of living with an equal partner- one to grow with!

Good luck and don't give up! :)

Good advice. But what happens when a Warrior Goddess meets a Warrior God? Doesn't it just become a face-off?

I certainly am guarded upon meeting someone. I've been told by some that at first it seems like they have to demonstrate that they are special before I will offer them my respect, and I have to admit, it is true.

As a result, I rarely approach women, because it feels like a waste of my energy to need to prove my self worth to someone whom I know so little about (because advances met by silence and a turned back are insulting).

I suppose there are those rare situations where the level of interaction between two people is enough to allow them to spend enough time together so that both get an opportunity to earn one another's respect without reaching out too much. Unfortunately, this is usually at work - and there are HR policies :)
