I received this message before I found the Braveheart Community –just as I was given permission to go into the feminine way of being- the joy of it…I found all of you….
'Courageous Warrior- lay down your sword….Sensitive Soul, pick it up'
Do you have a little courageous warrior spirit within you? There seems to be two polar types within the spiritual community, one being the truly sensitive souls – loving, gentle, porous – taking in everyone else’s thoughts feelings and emotions and then the more forceful warrior spirit, ready to defend the underdog, crusader, fighter for truth and justice.
The sensitive souls could possibly gravitate towards Archangel Gabriel and his messages of peace and comfort and the warrior spirits could possibly relate more to Archangel Michael, warrior for God and defender of all that is good. Archangel Michael is often portrayed in full warrior gear, with shield and sword. He is often depicted presiding over a slain dragon. It does not get more old school thug than that! Whereas Archangel Gabriel is most famous for appearing before the Blessed Mother during the annunciation. He is shown calmly delivering the news and presenting the Blessed Mother with a white lily. The image is that of complete peace. These are two vastly different portrayals of our beloved friends, the Archangels.
I was walking one day in the Massapequa Preserve as I often do and I heard a voice say to me, “warrior - lay down your sword”. I had a flash image of myself holding up a sword (like Excalibur) and pointing it to the sky and then laying it down on the ground-then I said to myself, “I am ready, God, to lay down this sword”. It was a surprise exchange for sure. I had none of this on my mind in the least, yet there it was-a message.
Looking back on my life I see I started out as a sensitive soul 100%. Then life made a warrior out of me. I felt the message that I was receiving is that it is ok for me to go back to my original state of being a sensitive soul in the world. The Angels were letting me know that now, at this moment I was free to do so, free to lay down that heavy sword that had become a burden to me. I share this with you as a means of figuring out where you are on the spectrum of Angelic activity and to see if you would like to check in with yourself to see if you are comfortable with the energy you are identifying with….both are gifts and maybe we shift in and out of each way of being as needed. For now, I am taking the Angel’s advice and laying down the sword….excited to see where it leads me.
