To me the Warrior is Kevin McKidd in the tv season Rome.
He is a gladiator and he is masculine and prepared to battle but also kind and makes you feel safe. He might be dirty sweaty and covered in blood but he would carry a little child out of a burning building.
I am not sure where i can look for my warrior so instead I am feeling into what full expression of this archetype would feel like – I have this jargon down man.
I’m just not sure I am prepared to battle. My instinct is to protect but more in a “I’ll protect the homestead while you use the pointy stick” – the idea being that the children hide in my gathered skirts and are protected from the bloody scene.
This seems very deferential on my part – and most likely holds me back in some ways in modern society – but I am not sure I mind it.
It feels like this has something to do with leadership. I think I need to buy a helmet.
