The Shero’s Journey

A shero is a female hero who chooses love over war. A shero is also a seeker of divine connection. She is a woman courageous enough to master the art of surrendering her ego to Essence and as a result, invite 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. Her reward is living in the ultimate Freedom of creative expression.

A shero answers a deep call 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 Journey Model to include a woman’s perspective of her life journey and the unique experiences that occur for women particularly in mid-life.

As most of you know, the hero’s journey has its roots in the male archetype, and it is interesting that a different path for females is never spoken about … until now.

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

But mid-life 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 to live a life of purpose.

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

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