How I, Jillian Aurora - an average woman - became a Goddess.
I walked through the fires and the darkness.
I braved lonely, confusing relationships.
I lost myself in rescuing, forcing, manipulating, and achieving.
But through all the valleys and rabbit trails, I never stopped tenaciously searching for myself.
I thought I was incapable, broken, and inadequate.
I thought I needed someone outside of myself to save me.
I thought I was at the mercy of life, relationships, and jobs.
I thought if I could just love hard enough, I would be worth loving back.
Slowly, I discovered there had been a Goddess inside, all along.
I realized I had been tricked into thinking I was fragile and helpless.
I had been conditioned to think I needed to wait for permission.
I had been duped into believing life was lived hoping and waiting for someone to have my back.
I had been told wanting more was bad and dangerous.
And no one had ever told me of my super powers.
But I learned.
I learned of my strength through the challenges I conquered.
I learned of my resiliency through the trials I thought would kill me.
I learned of my autonomy through rising up to meet my own needs.
I learned of my power through having my own back.
I learned of my own value through raising my standards.
I learned of my royalty through requiring permission to access me.
I learned of my magic through unapologetically following my heart.
Today, I know. The game is up.
I thoroughly know my royalty and I won’t stop until you know yours.
