I've been feeling some serious liony vibes lately... so since it's Halloween, what better day to let my inner lion out!
It started around my birthday this year (and yes, I'm a Leo :) I found a scarf at an estate sale in this random bin of accessories- it had been folded up and was in a clear bag. I just saw the colors and grabbed, and to my surprise when I unfolded, it was a lion! Mine!
When I got home, I decided it needed to be displayed rather then stuck in a drawer, so I hung it up over my side of the bed to remind me to unleash my lionness more often.
Soon after, I started to crave getting a tattoo of a lion on my shoulder- calm and strong with a swirling (curly-ish?) mane, urging me to be brave. I don't have any tattoos, so to suddenly yearn for a big lion on my arm is a bit strange. (Don't worry mom, I'm just collecting tattoo inspiration on pinterest at this point :)
And then I started to get the strong urge to grow out my own mane super long, and wear it proud! It used to be so luxurious when I was young (and hated it.) I don't know if it can grow so long again but I'm gonna try and see. If I had my 12 year old hair back now, I'd rock it!
And then, at a Firestarter Sessions group I'm in, one of the ladies, Dryden, and I got to talkin' woo-woo stuff how I like to, and she had some Angel Cards with her and gave some of us girls a reading. One of the things my angels apparently had to tell me was that they wanted me to know what my "spirit animal" is...
"Do you like BIG cats?" Dryden asked.
Of course it's a lion! And it's been calling me. And apparently it has been for years, when I look around the house and see all the lions I've been collecting for sometime without really realizing...
So what does this all mean? I guess it's time to BE the fucking LION.
It's time for me to be brave. Be bold. To protect. To lead. Be fierce.
Time for me to ROAR in my own way.
And Halloween's as good a day as any to get started!
Wishing you a happy one! What alter ego/secret identity/sprit are you channeling this year?
