I thank the Victim for showing me the path to the Warrior. With gratitude and compassion I now dismiss the Victim, and bid him farewell for the rest of this lifetime and beyond. Let the Warrior now be born!
Yesterday I did a spontaneous ritual centered on this affirmation. It comes from what I’ve named “The Contract with my Selves,” a list of 13 affirmations I’ve created to aid me in moving into the position of the Warrior and away from the position of the Victim.
Without conscious intent, this affirmation fell onto the page as item number 3, which numerologically is associated with birth energy – the result of the union between numbers 1 and 2. It’s neat that it came in this order, given its emphasis on the “Birth of the Warrior.” If we quiet our minds, still our bodies and ask for guidance, it really does come.
This ritual was very positive and powerfully transformative. I’m looking forward to sharing it in detail.
In tomorrow’s post, Part 2 of 4, I’ll give some background regarding my experience with the Victim and share the key role s/he plays in our spiritual and emotional growth. Wednesday I’ll discuss the role of the Warrior in Part 3, and on Thursday in Part 4 I’ll post the complete details of the ritual for any who’d like to work it on their own.
