Lioness to the Stage
My creative lioness is stirring...
I have always been an avid day-dreamer. In the golden days, I'd spend hours creating comic books, living inside the minds of my Fisher Price dolls, or building tree forts in the backyard with my brothers. As I grow older and my blossoms unfurl, I sharpen my dreaming heart.
I feel my inner lioness awakening.
The other night, during a Pranayama Breathwork meditation, I had a vision of a lioness bathed in a light, emerald-green aura. My eyes teared up under closed lids. Instantly, the revelation washed over me. This remarkable creature is emerging from the depths of my heart. For as long as I can remember, I have associated with the masculine lion - the one with the beautiful mane. But this lioness queen told me to embrace my femininity. She showed me the way to my golden throne.
Today is Female Filmmaker Friday, and so I want to encourage each artist out there to believe, deep in her bones, that she is deserving to sit on her own throne. Cast aside the inner critic. Rise above.
I am stepping onto the stage. Who's with me?
