  • Your Queendom Defined

    Creating and living in your Queendom requires you to regularly connect with your Essence and discover how to express that divine love into your thoughts, words and deeds in a way that authentically transforms who you are and how you live your life.

    This powerful, transformational love energy is able to work through you in a way that it also benefits other people’s lives even if you are simply thinking about them.

    Your Queendom is as unique and exciting as each individual reading this post.

    Here on the Shero’s Journey we celebrate your uniqueness and welcome your energy to our community of talent and fascinating women.

    One of the most prominent qualities of a woman who lives in her Queendom is her ability to live with an open heart. She is courageous in her desire to express love in situations where others might typically close down their heart’s response because they feel to vulnerable or move into fear for any reason.

    An open, love-expressing heart is mandatory on the Shero’s Journey. It doesn’t mean you start out with this ability, but as you grow you pick up this skill and are able to execute more often. You are able to experience and express as a lover of life.

    To help you understand what life looks like when you live with an open heart, I am including below the qualities of an open heart vs. a closed one. I have also included how this quality expresses in your mind. Use it to gauge where you are and what take one quality today and add it into your current repertoire.

    Much love to you!

    The Call to Essence

    A yearning feeling that the way you currently live your life must change

    Living from the head is unsatisfying and has not created the life you desire and you urgently long to follow your heart

    Denial of the Call

    With declaration pronounced, the enemies converge

    All the reasons to remain the same bombard you

    I am not worthy, that is someone else’s responsibility, failing belief systems, fear of the unknown, or success and failure

    Journey Woman Emerges

    You know that the search lies inside and you have no choice but to find the answers

    Often a sister mentor, teacher or guide arrives in your life to show you the way

    There is a joyous awakening and you no longer doubt that a new world awaits you

    New World Dawns

    You set an intention and make the commitment to remain open to your path and its intuitive answers

    The journey woman arrives at the ultimate experience of loss, grief, or possible near death

    Death & Rebirth Climax

    This stage involves a significant loss of identification (with something or someone) and the only question that remains is, “Who Am I?”

    You must choose to resolve the initial polarity: will you ignore the signs or evolve into your new way of life? Die or become resurrected?

    The Treasure Remains

    No doubt you have been given a sacred gift; a treasure that loses some worth unless it is shared and given away to others

    This gift transforms your world without your effort but it can also change the lives of others as your story is retold

    You choose to create and live in your feminine Queendom and that legacy begins your path of living from an open heart

Welcome to The Shero’s Journey. It is my hope that you visit us often, find answers to your most critical life questions, and that your life has a little more love in it when you leave.

A Shero is a woman courageous enough to master the art of surrendering her ego to Essence and as a result, invites a flow of divine love into her heart that transforms her life as well as the lives of others.

This transformation is life-defining in somewhat uncharted and most often, unspoken about territory.

The qualities she brings into this new life include utter faith, trust, and surrender to her purpose and to the knowledge that everything will be provided to her as needed.

A shero answers a deep calling and longing from the inner self. The wisdom of her age no longer allows her to accept compromise or complacency. She demands to be who she is … no matter what the consequences.

I created the Shero’s model to include a woman’s perspective of her life journey and the unique experiences that occur for us – particularly at mid-life.

As most of you know, the hero’s journey has its roots in the male archetype, and I find it interesting that the different path for females isn’t spoken about.

Many women past the age of 50 are realizing that they have put their own dreams on hold while they supported everyone else: their children, spouse, friends, and even their own parents.

But now is our time and with that comes an increased sense of urgency that time is running out! We feel called to know who we truly are.

And when we make the decision to begin our journey of self-discovery, the Shero meets the inevitable challenges along the way.

But do not despair because there is also help along the way. Our community on this blog is full of people who are at one stage of this journey or another. And, they want to help you.

So check out the full model of The Shero’s Journey here (link) and join us in the conversation.

Real transformation happens when we connect with our inner Self and radiate that Essence out to the world. A new awakening is possible.

Human beings are re-evaluating their way of life based on an inner calling – no longer willing to accept hand-me-down definitions of success. Thank goodness we question authority.

My spiritual journey began at the age of 18, and I have studied the higher yogas since 1982. For those of you who wonder why I spend my time writing books, articles and blogs that empower women, I would love for you to read my story.

This book chapter provides insight into how I discovered my personal purpose and why I now dedicate myself to helping other women live their dream lives. Just give me your name and email in the form on this page, and I will send you a free chapter of my book.

The Dalai Lama once said, “The world will be saved by the western woman.” Certainly we have the education, perhaps the resources and time to give, and have shown inclination for change. But mostly importantly, I believe that when we light the flame of another woman’s candle across the world – she too will know what to do to empower herself and help her community.

Compassionate women create a deeper global connection of feminine energy that impregnates all of our systems including education, politics, healthcare and economics. As women become brave enough to live empowered and authentic lives; the whole world benefits.

Inner discovery takes courage and anyone who has walked the path will tell you, “The effort is not necessarily easy, but it is completely worth it.” When we put our focus on love every day, and permeate our thoughts, feelings and actions with this universal energy, we connect and strengthen each other in a way that inspires change.

This blog is meant as an inspiration for women around the world to improve themselves and their lives every day and as a result, reach out and help their friends, families, community, and if so called, the world as well.

If you are new to discovering your inner Self, I’ll show you ways to get there and talk about what you find and its meaning. We’ll visit critical topics that affect your life every day and build a community of like-minded women who can share their personal inspiration.

You’ll learn how to plan for random acts of kindness often as well as discover how to create change for ourselves that can help us live fulfilled lives. We’ll address where you are right now in your personal growth and what your next steps might possibly be.

These words will encourage you to look at your life and the actions you take as a possible win-win for everyone. And we want you to laugh – a lot! You won’t feel separate or lonely after you hang out here, and soon that feeling of being connected to the universe will permeate your personal life. You’re also going to learn the true meaning of surrender and how to make that work for you.

As a result, you might just wake up in the morning thinking “I Love My Life.” Then you will know that your life has become your message.

The women who hang out here could become friends because they travel the same road as you and want to share their love and light. What we have in common is the desire to uplift and empower ourselves as well as other women around the world to make personal and global changes that help us all move toward greater expressions of love, compassion, joy and peace.

If you don’t see what interests you here, please write to me from our contact page, and I will do my best to address your questions. If I don’t know the answers, I promise to find people who do. Keep returning so we can light your flame and so you can share your light with us so you life becomes more fulfilled. Be a shining inspiration for the rest of the world.
