The Heroine’s Journey

The last part of this blog series is here, and I wanted to take some time to talk about the journey of the heroine. The journey of the heroine is different from the journey of the hero, but the essence is much the same.

Here are the steps to the journey of the heroine.

  1. SEPARATION FROM THE FEMININE
  2. IDENTIFICATION WITH THE MASCULINE & GATHERING OF ALLIES
  3. ROAD OF TRIALS, MEETING OGRES & DRAGONS
  4. FINDING THE BOON OF SUCCESS
  5. AWAKENING TO FEELINGS OF SPIRITUAL ARIDITY: DEATH
  6. INITIATION & DESCENT TO THE GODDESS
  7. URGENT YEARNING TO RECONNECT WITH THE FEMININE
  8. HEALING THE MOTHER/DAUGHTER SPLIT
  9. HEALING THE WOUNDED MASCULINE
  10. INTEGRATION OF MASCULINE & FEMININE

The journey focuses on the separation of the masculine and the feminine, but it brings up an important point about the two aspects of human nature. We all have a little bit of masculinity and femininity within all of us, and it is something that requires a balance, much like the balance between the spiritual and the animal. The story of the hero is something that is important for the life of everyone to follow and to understand. It is something that the prophets and the Christs followed and it is something that I myself followed as well. There are many aspects of the journey of the hero that are important to our life and can teach us valuable lessons if we are willing to look at our life and the events that follow those choices that we makeĀ and we choose to learn the lessons and follow them.
