“Warrior Goddess Training; Becoming the Woman You Are Meant to Be”
HeatherAsh Amara, Heirophant Publishing, 2014.(Available through NZ Fishpond website, $16.99 including delivery).
“If you don’t love and honor yourself with every fibre of your being, if you struggle with owning your power and passion, if you could use more joyful play and simple presence in your life, then it is time for an inner revolution. It is time to claim your Warrior Goddess energy” (p xv, 2014).
I was looking for some help to reignite my spark for life and myself when I serendipitously found HeatherAsh Amara’s Goddess Warrior Training book online. This teaser introduction quoted above follows through in the earthy, helpful and compassionate journey of self-discovery that she invites you embark on. HeatherAsh comes from an unashamedly earth based spiritual stance in honouring the seasons and deeply knowing the power of the elements yet writes in an accessible way and provides excellent introductions for those not familiar with this path. This rich spirituality is woven throughout the book and had my soul dancing with the pages.
The journey of personal transformation is not an easy one, and so too with this book, HeatherAsh goes beyond the theory of living compassionately from your authentic Self to actually helping you achieve this. She guides you through a journey designed to enable you to unpack some of the mental, emotional, spiritual and life baggage that might be holding you back and not serving you anymore. Written with warmth and sharing her own and other women’s life experiences and struggles, she helps you to notice things like; the inner judgement and victim voices we might have, the old stories and beliefs we hold about ourselves and our situations that are no longer true, the ways we might focus on pleasing others, being overly busy, looking after others to the detriment of ourselves or getting caught up in distractions, over controlling or hiding and giving away our power. If these are some things you struggle with, this book may well help you on your way. She assists in transforming these patterns and habits by teaching tools and ways to cleanse your being, reclaim your truth, challenge your thinking and old agreements, let go what no longer serves, mend your heart, ignite creativity and passion, and listen to your intuition and find wisdom and strength in your inner being.
This might seem like a tall order but I have found Goddess Warrior Training delivers with compassion and humour too. Reading this book is not a passive journey but one that requires your inner Warrior Goddess to step forward! Certainly this beautiful book has helped me enormously and I highly recommend it.
