The animal guide appeared on my path and noticed confusion on my face. He rushed over to me and charged into a tree, knocking bark and branches off the tree.
The first thing he said was, “Get rid of all the dead branches, clear them out and make room for new growth. Now is the time to look at your weaknesses and change them into strengths.”
I looked at the Spirit Guide and asked, “How, What is the best way?”
He sat down next to me and said, “Embrace the Ŵarrior within and find the courage to confront your fears. Pray and ask for wisdom.”
I cried and sobbed for a long time because this was hard advice to hear.
I wanted to run away, hide, and isolate from everyone. I was tired of fighting and wanted to give up. I had forgotten about the warrior within me.
The animal guide said, “It is time to face all the challenges that are causing you havoc and pain. It is time to find closure.”
I knew in my heart that he was speaking the truth and that his protection was being granted at this time. He would lend me his fearless determination and strength so that no one could cause me harm.
He would guide me through all the traps and reveal all the pitfalls.
It was time to make tough decisions and face my challenges head on.
My time was running out as the adversary was making plans to take me down a dark path of hopelessness and despair.
I embraced my warrior spirit. I held out my sword with confidence.
The roar of thunder came out from my lips.
I am Victory.
