There is a warrior inside us, who calls to us to find her, to find ourselves. She carries a fire that lives in our hearts that is with us from the moment we are born to the moment we die. This fire holds secrets about who we are, why we are here, and how we will live. You do not need to know all of these answers right now, if ever. In this meditation we will discover our inner warrior and find our way home to this sacred fire.
Bring your attention to your breath, feeling the air nourishing your body as you breathe in, and cleansing your body and you breathe out. Pay attention to the sounds around you, and feel the sensations on your skin. Give yourself permission to drop into your body, accepting it in whatever state it might be in. Take ownership of this space, it is yours.
Slowly, take your hands and hold them to your heart. Feel your heart beating. This is your connection to your bloodline, your ancestors who have offered pieces of themselves for you to be here now. These pieces are a source of great strength as you embark on this journey.
Imagine now, slowly and softly, a drum beating. Imagine yourself in the presence of this drum. See the space. Notice now that a woman is drumming. She is drumming for you. Who is she? What sense do you have of her? Can you see her face? Does she wish to speak to you?
Hold your hands out in front of you and in your mind’s eye imagine that you are holding a ball of fire. The drumming is fast and loud now. Allow your spirit to dance with this fire. How does it feel in your hands?
Now bring your hands into your chest and imagine the fire going into your heart. Feel it’s light radiating through you and out into the world. Bless this sacred fire. Bless yourself. Bless all the women who walk this path.
The drumming becomes quieter and slow, until there is silence. Give thanks to your drummer and bless them on their journey.
As you slowly come back into the room, feel your heart beating once more. Remember that this fire is always with you, ready to speak to you, and share its wisdom…
