The time and space
to make your dreams
a reality is sitting right
at your feet...
Just make a decision
that you are ready,
then move your feet
in that direction.

her feet all the time, and would
always pick them up and make
a wish. Her mom had told her
that it meant that someone in
heaven was watching over her.
The few months after her mom
passed, Linda was finding pen-
nies everywhere.
During these past several
months, I helped Linda make her
dream come true. Linda is now
the president of www.heavens
pennies.com, her own beautiful
online fashion store. And a por-
tion of the proceeds goes to pan-
creatic cancer research, hence
the name, Heaven's Pennies.
The keyword is choice, and
many women are choosing to
re-invent themselves in a way
that fits their lifestyle, dreams
and desires, rather than what
has been expected of them by
society or family. When they
move past their fears and take
steps in this direction, watch out.
There is absolutely nothing they
cannot achieve.

The way of the spiritual war-
rior is a challenging one, espe-
cially for a woman. A woman
traditionally has not put on a suit
of armor and gone off to war. In
the past few weeks this has come
to my attention because I have
had a suit of armor, a letter ref-
erencing a suit of armor, and a
magazine article with a woman
in a suit of armor on the cover,
all delivered to my house.
So it had me musing upon
the way of the female warrior. If
we look back in history we have
very strong female warriors in
our myths and legends. Today
many women look to early pa-
gan archetypes for inspiration in
the area of women's spirituality
and a warrior's path.
Athena for instance was born
from her father's head, fully ar-
mored and ready for battle. Her
symbol is an olive branch for
peace and sustenance, yet she
carried a sword when she had to
do battle. Freya of the Norse tra-
dition was Queen of the Valker-
ies. She enjoyed first pick of the
fallen warriors after a battle,
but she was also the Goddess of
love. She shows the belief that
the other side of death is life.
I believe that is what the Way
of the Warrior is for women in
today's world. She has an under-
standing about bringing life into
this world so she is not so cav-
alier about taking it out of this
world. Yet having said that when
it is necessary to do so she will.
This shocks some people. It up-
sets their long-held beliefs about
a woman's place in the world.
There is another way of being
a warrior and that is to use other
weapons such as words and ac-
tions that are not directly vio-
lent. One such warrior is Ayaan
Hirsi Ali who has been living
under a death threat for several
years. She is an author who lives
in the Netherlands far from her
birthplace in Somalia.
She writes about women's
rights and a need for the world to
change its attitude about wom-
en's rights no matter the religion
or tradition. In countries where
a woman has to wear a veil, and
honor killings and genital muti-
lation are accepted, this woman
writes books and screen plays
to bring the light of truth and
knowledge to bear against the
ignorance and brutality. Ayaan
Hirsi Ali is a Woman Warrior.
Aung san Suu Kyi of Burma is
another Woman Warrior. She is
under house arrest in Burma by
a hostile military regime. Win-
ner of the Nobel peace prize and
the rightful elected leader of her
country, she is not allowed any
personal freedom. Yet she con-
tinues to fight for democracy and
human rights. She is a Woman
Warrior.
There are many women in
the military putting on modern
armor and going into battle.
Knights in Shining Armor
By Mystic Trish
Likewise, many women in fire
departments and police depart-
ments are putting on armor and
doing battle every day. They are
Woman Warriors.
There is a woman in Califor-
nia who was a victim of domestic
abuse and took all the right steps
legally and ethically to ensure
justice was done to the abuser.
She found out that the laws re-
garding restraining orders are
inadequate. She has now taken
it upon herself to change those
laws so women and children, no
matter their circumstances, are
protected from their abuser. She
is a Woman Warrior.
I mention these women who
are just a few of the Woman
Warriors on the planet at this
time. With the rising wave of
Sacred Feminine energy there
is a re-balancing of the relation-
ships of all people on earth. It
is not a balance that is easy to
achieve. As the women on this
planet are allowed their rights
as human beings, the entire
planet comes into balance with
love and light for all the crea-
tures that live here. It just might
be a bit of a fight and we need
our Knights in Shining Armor.
