Good Afternoon, God!
A few months ago, while at my spiritual director’s home, I invited my Warrior Spirit to become part of my Inner Grand Alliance. My Warrior Spirit was delighted at the idea and asked to become Chancellor of the Exchequer! Huh? But it has turned out that she is quite good with money.
Now I’ve sensed that this Inner Part of me wants to be Lord of the Privy Seal, too. Historically, that office seemed to be roughly equivalent to Royal Secretary. Being “Lord of the Privy Seal” has a lot more panache than “Secretary.”
Hmm. Yes, I guess that IS the Point. My Warrior Spirit — and her assorted coterie of assistants — want to be taken seriously.
It is quire humbling, God, to realize that I have resisted their help all these years! I’d labeled my Warrior Sprit as a fierce and angry part of myself and did my best to wall her off. That just made her angrier. Now that I am committed to ongoing Personal Integration, I am discovering a wealth of useful gifts and talents untapped inside me.
It seems they want to be called up by Name or Function. And I have noticed that they seem very fond of Medieval Titles. So I searched Wikipedia and that’s where I found the title Lord Keeper of the Privy Seal — such an impressive title!
My spiritual director told me that I am going to have fun as I do Centering Prayer — calling them up one by one and getting to know them.
Thank You, God, for helping me as I slowly learn how to be fully me!
Our warrior spirits do tend to want out! But it is good to integrate them into ourselves…they are part of us after all 🙂 m.
