Day 7 – The Power of Anger
Sekhmet – Punishing Goddess of Egypt. Sekhmet is referred to as the Eye of Ra, as She is the personification of God’s anger. Her role as both a creative and destructive force aligns Her with women, as she represents the fire of femininity. Sekhmet protects women, bestows inner balance, and stands for righteous anger. She is depicted as a full figured woman with the head of a lion.
Sekhmet, She of Desert and Flame
Mother of blood and strength, Devourer and Healer
Hear me, Lady, oh hear me
I have learned the perils of anger
And the hurts of misspoken words and untrustworthy hearts
But with each wound came your healing lesson
And I thank you for this.
I call to you now
So that in my new experiences
I will embrace worthwhile pursuits
And that I may learn righteous anger
Which is the force behind the power of change.
When I speak my truth, may my voice rise like your roar
And when I am slighted, may I forgive and release with ease
Lend me your wisdom
So that I may know when to fight and when to walk away.
