This article is part of a small series on the Chalice of your Soul. This article focuses on the Hero/Heroine archetype and sheds more light on how to activate your inner Hero who can help you become the author of your own life.
In order for you to author your own life, you must own your life, dedicate yourself to expressing who you are and what you believe in. Imagine being an author. When you author something, you put your stamp on it, you own it, you become an expert in the subject you write about.
How about becoming an expert on yourself!
You begin “authorship” of your life when you activate the Hero within you who enables you to claim your individual authority in life and commit to your own path of truth.
In the diagram below, the Hero is located at the base of the soul chalice, at the place of TRUTH. The main quality developed at this stage is commitment – commitment to your own path so that you can claim your own authority in life.
