Are you a Warrior Goddess?

Beyond all the labels, gender classifications, beliefs and stories we all carry about ourselves fluctuates two diametrically opposed, but divinely interconnected, types of energy: the masculine and the feminine.

We see, hear, feel and cultivate masculine energy everywhere. Masculine energy is hot, hard, logical, goal-orientated, proactive and externally-focused, and it pervades everything from religion, to sex, to our relationships and our work lives.

Masculine energy, or God energy, dominates our lives because its very nature is to rule, command and control. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but after centuries of bowing down to fierce “Gods,” industrializing the world, and living by aggressive, goal-orientated rules, ideals and goals, it is time for us to reclaim the power of the feminine in our lives.

What Is the Divine Feminine (and Why Does It Matter)?

Feminine energy is passive, soft, abstract, intuitive and nurturing, and is embodied by the moon, the earth, water and Winter/Autumn. As a gentle but sensual frequency, feminine energy is also linked to procreation and sexuality which is precisely why it has been shunned for so many centuries due to the repressive religious values of the masculine Patriarchal church fathers.

Divine Feminine energy, or Goddess energy, is a subtle yet immensely vital source of energy in our lives. Without it, we are out of touch with our bodies, our emotions, our dreams, and our mother earth. Without it, we live lives on the surface, pursuing empty goals, ego-centered ambitions and desolate values that are disconnected from the mystery, wonder and magic of life.


Without honoring and cultivating the divine feminine in our lives, we feel incomplete and eternally dissatisfied, pursuing paths that are destructive to the planet and toxic to those we love. Put simply, without acknowledging and nurturing the feminine energy within us, we are incomplete and our lives feel superficial.

Are You a Warrior Goddess?

However, on the other hand, only cultivating the divine feminine in our lives canalso leave us imbalanced and incomplete. When we have too much Goddess energy in our lives we can spiral into chaos following self-destructive, emotionally reactive paths that leave us victim to any emotional whim we have, and any unkind impulse of others. In fact, too much Goddess energy can lead to addictions, self-pity and unhealthy identity roles like the Martyr Complex.

This is why we need to balance the God and the Goddess within us; the masculine and the feminine, the anima and the animus. This is where the Warrior Goddess comes into play.

The Warrior Goddess is a sacred mixture of the masculine and feminine. As the name suggest, the Warrior Goddess is both a holy blend of strength, iron-willed determination and courage, as well as receptivity, spirituality and tenderness. Both yin and yang are held in balance within the Warrior Goddess, or Nurturing God, and therefore a deep sense of wholeness, confidence and joy is felt.

7 Things You Can Do to Rediscover the Warrior Goddess Within

Personally, a big part of my own journey towards reclaiming my power as a Warrior Goddess was accepting how extremely imbalanced a person I was both emotionally, spiritually, psychologically and sexually. As a young girl I grew up not only deeply entrenched in the Masculine-God values, beliefs and goals of society, but I was also profoundly indoctrinated since birth in a fundamentalist branch of Christianity. This Christian sect taught me that I had to save my virginity until marriage, be attracted to the opposite gender, have children, stay at home and cook, grow my hair long, wear dresses and skirts, stay dead silent in church, remain submissive to the preachers, and of course, stay faithful to God (who was of course depicted as a masculine being).

It wasn’t until I met Sol and subsequently went through a massive, messy, life-changing process of metamorphosis that I discovered the beautiful, balanced paradox of who I am. I am both the sheep and the lion, I am the sun and the moon, I am fire and water, I am logical and emotional, I am sensitive and strong, I am a lover of males and females, I am the student of night and day.

I am a Warrior Goddess, and so are you. I know how hard it can be to embody this merging of two opposites, this energetic alchemy – but it is possible, and below I will give you a taste of how to rediscover this divine balance within you whether you are male, female or neither:

1. Explore your story.

We all have stories that we tell about ourselves. I refer to these as “stories” because they all have a beginning, middle, and end, and are products of our memories, past experiences, religious indoctrination and cultural myths. For example, your story might be this: “My name is Jack. I’m a male who loves to binge on Netflix and go to soccer matches with my mates. I’m a guy’s-guy and I don’t really understand females apart from when I’m in bed with them.” Or your story might be: “I’m Tori. I’m a quiet wife and mother of two who loves astrology. Although my boys don’t really understand me, I sacrifice a lot for them and my husband. I’m a giver not a taker.”

What gender-specific roles can you identify in your personal story that might be limiting? Examples could be that you’re a guy’s-guy, a girl’s-girl, a nurturer, a business-man/woman, a mother, father, leader, etc. By identifying these gender-specific roles, and how dominant the male/female energy in your story is, you can open a doorway for growth.

2. Speak your truth.

Be honest and be truthful. What do you authentically want from life, other people, and yourself? Stop sitting in the backseat of life, and give yourself permission to take over the steering wheel for once. Yes, it is good to flow with life, but it is also good to be honest with yourself and other people about what you really want and need.

3. Ignite your will.

Sometimes it is necessary to put your foot down and be assertive in a respectful way. Most of us have trouble with willfully, but gently, setting boundaries and pursuing what we love. If you have too much masculine energy you will come across as being domineering and aggressive. If you have too much feminine energy you will come across as being manipulative and passive-aggressive. How can you ignite your will in a healthy, balanced way? (Note: I explore how to do this in myQuiet Strength course.)

    Having walked the sacred path since I was a young child and having no exposure to religious teachings I understand “warrior” training. At the age of 16 I did ask my Higher Self what I was becoming and the response was, “You are a warrior.” With regards to your “7 Things” I like most of all of them except your # 5, Celebrate your sexuality.” I do agree we should not regard our sexuality as dirty or wrong but I don’t think you have a good grasp on it as a source of energy. I was taught to conserve it. I was also taught not to use it in a sensual manner. If you spend it sensually you won’t have enough energy to raise it up through the upper chakras correctly.
