What is the Lion Heart? I’ve been contemplating the Lion Heart, which I never felt true inner-standing until 2020: the year of courage. I realize that the Lion asks us to stand in our power and allow our true nature to be seen: our heart nature. It asks us to take action in our life from our heart, which requires a courage and trust as big as our hearts. It takes courage and inner strength to be empowered or inner-powered. Those of us who choose this courage are “lion-hearted.”
It takes courage to face at times our own darkness and at times darkness outside of us, and then transmute that darkness into love. As we face whatever scares us, with the knowing that we are love, we are totally capable of transmuting darkness.
One of my favorite spiritual lessons, which also took me a long time to inner-stand, is that courage is not the absence of fear, but simply the knowing and trust that something else is more important. Courage is allowing yourself to feel what you fear and face the fear anyway. It is knowing that courage is the truth of who you are and fear is just there to teach the courage of which you are capable. To be lion-hearted is to stay strongly centered in your heart and transmute fear into love from your heart. To be lion-hearted is to have the courage and strength to align to the integrity of your heart. To be lion-hearted is to choose to face whatever you face with simultaneous courage and an open heart. It is the synthesis of courage and heart.
The Lion Heart is an angelic power I am so fortunate to now know, and it is innate in us all. We are all lion-hearted if we choose. The beauty of ascension is that it is truly a choice of empowerment we say “yes” to with our innate courage and infinite hearts.
The Angelic Dream Key teachings of this Academy not only unlocked me to KNOWING my own heart, but also to an unshakeable courage. What a beautiful planet we can inhabit once we all unlock and remember our Lion Hearts.
