Let us discuss for a moment The One Who Knows Herself vs the Wounded Princess.
A woman who fears her shadow can never integrate into unity, to practice proper alchemy, or to know the rites of the dark mother: complete rebirth and destruction of everything that binds you.
The Princess contorts around, suffocating herself, desperately trying to be nice, to be sweet, to make sure everyone likes her.
She does not have access to her true Self, and walks around emptily hoping someone will see her smile and tell her she is good and pretty, so she can breathe again.
She spends most of her life gasping for air. Hoping she’ll be good enough for an uninitiated man to like her. To get approval from her community. To get kudos for always shining.
She does not know herself, and so, like a chameleon, she changes to suit her environment. Pious, cute, uncomplicated. When confronted with the energy of The Woman Who Knows Herself, she recoils, disgusted. She meets the Hag and the...
Honestly, I thought being "internet famous" was the most embarrassing shit in the world.
I didn't even know what that meant.
Like, were these the people who were still hung up on MySpace fame and were carrying it over into something else!?!?
Did they still have scene mullets...
I didn't wake up and decide to be an entrepreneur.
I didn't see someone else make one bajillion dollars and think -- dude! I'm gonna exploit people! For cash!
Actually, I went through a horribly traumatizing breakup.
I couldn't move for weeks.
And my kundalini was going crazy. I would just lay in bed and feel like I was being fucked open by God, sometimes for hours. Undulating. Having visions.
The Divine Mother had been visiting me for a long time. Around this time, she would appear with this insane headdress on, and just cackle. Howling laughter.
At the time, I wasn't afraid, but perhaps confused.
I felt like I was writhing on the floor of death, and somehow, there she was - boisterous.
Three KEYS, my QUEEN
Three keys to keeping your Queen energy HIGH -
1. Protect your space. Do not bend over. Your crown will fall. Breaking vows against yourself to receive temporary energetic pleasures from those who cannot meet you is only a disservice to yourself. Learn to respect and honor yourself with such an intensity that you never fear to utter your words of truth. To cast out the shadows of this world requires a fierce and deep initiation into unshakable self-reverence. This is different than self-love in that it is the energy that goes to war for what is in alignment. It is an essence of your inner King energy - protecting the fortress, maintaining the castle, ensuring your Sovereignty. You must first become this for yourself. Do not let subtle or tempting distractions pull you away from the path of higher and deeper awareness of your perfect illumination.
2. Pleasure yourself. Not just physically, but in all sensual ways imaginable. Be in divinely sumptuous environments....

They are a touchstone to the beauty, endurance,...
