How to Be a Guardian: Using Your Soul Gift


Guardians embody sacred + fierce love. Stable and safe, they cultivate feelings of value and self-worth in everyone they meet. 

As a Guardian, you do not have to love and protect everyone or everything, but you do need to be there for those who want to receive your gift.

We cannot always choose whom we love or what we value; these things seem to be inherent in our bones. But, you can decide who or what to defend and you will do this with more finesse, strength, and sustainability when you are clear about the sacred quality you value most. 

One way to cultivate this practice in your everyday life is to follow your folly. In each of your interactions, connections, and communications, ask yourself, “What do I value or enjoy in this moment?” Listen for the answer that arises and act upon it.

This is how you protect what is sacred. You do not have to do anything, you simply have to value and enjoy and others will automatically feel a sense of security and their own worth.

I realize this sounds overly simplistic, but give it a try and let me know how it goes!

If you want more exercises and reflections, my book, Your Fearless Soul, will assist you on your Guardian's journey.
