Sekhmet is a Lion Goddess and the Lion is the most powerful hunter that was known to the Egyptians. She is depicted as a lioness or a woman with the head of a lioness. Sekhmet knows what she wants and will pursue it relentlessly and with a single-minded focus that is as laser-sharp as it is efficient. Nothing can distract her from her goal – or target.
Sekhmet teaches us to curb our temper, control our baser instincts and learn to govern them with discipline and discernment. We can set our whole house on fire, or kindle a flame in the hearth to use as a source of warmth, power and as a tool to build great things. The metalsmith works with fire at great temperatures in order to melt, alloy and form metal into tools, weapons and other wonderfully useful things like door hinges, nails and screws. In spite of her fierceness and readiness to attack and slay those who oppose her, however, Sekhmet also possesses the qualities of compassion and healing.
When you work with Sekhmet and her energies, it is also a good time to journal to become, stay aware of, and track your own progress in reaching the next step to level up in our consciousness. Take note of the visions of who you will become as they occur and tap into that power to reach your goal, one step at a time.
