When you are in the eye of the storm, you are often not aware of the whiplash around you.– Hugh Bonneville
Once Upon A Time
there was a beautiful goddess of love and war, who would ride on a chariot pulled by two cats with her long auburn hair blowing in the wind.
Even though the divine seductress had a buffet of sexual partners, her love for her missing husband, Od, was boundless. Od went on a trip and did not return to Freya and their two beautiful daughters. And so, Freya searched tirelessly across the nine worlds for him. Lonely and frustrated by her fruitless search, she cried tears of red gold.
In any case, life went on. Although she was heart broken, there was work to do on the battlefields. Freya was responsible for picking half of the warriors who die heroically in battle to live in her dazzling hall, known as ‘The Place of Many Seats’.
The Norse goddess teaches us that in the flurry of battle or even LA traffic, find that quiet eye of the storm. Let the roars and buzzes around you dissolve into the ether, and find your center.
Ok, so you may have lost the game, a job, boyfriend, your car keys or all of the above! Freya also teaches you that the acceptance of defeat is not the end of the world. In fact, it’s a beautiful transitional time of no resistance.
The fight is over. Now is the time to patch up your wounds, and surrender to what is. You’ll be moving to higher ground before you know it. Have no fear, stand tall in your confidence, and know that you’ll come out of this stronger and wiser.
