It’s time to melt the ice queens and the drama queens and welcome the soulful conscious queens!
This fall I will be facilitating a weekend-retreat with a dear friend of mine, Romana Ercegovic, titled ‘Becoming the Queen of my Life, Owning my Wisdom’. The queen archetype is more than just a political plea for women to step into leadership roles – as I see it, owning your inner queendom/ kingdom is about personal freedom and so important for any pioneer of consciousness. In this blog I will explore how you can claim back the throne of your empire (your life) and discuss the difference between the selfish diva and the self-loving divine queen. One of the best things of walking the spiritual path is that you realize how life-changing perspectives are. This is why I’d like to invite you on a journey into my definition of conscious queendom – so whenever you are ready, take a deep breath, straighten your crown, and let’s dive into your sovereign domain.
Perhaps the core element of embodying your inner queen is taking responsibility of yourself and your life. We have come to think of responsibility as something dreary and dull. However, if you only take responsibility for yourself and your life (as opposed to trying to save your family, friends and the world), it will open the doors to your freedom; it lifts you from victimhood to victory: When you take ownership of your life (all aspects of it) you are also stepping into your creatorship. The conscious queen observes her life without judgment, and knows that she has the freedom to either accept or change anything that she doesn’t like. If something is out of balance, she can create new solutions and make new choices.
In this way, leadership becomes an internal matter: it has very little to do with your relationship to other people, and is really about your relationship to your aspects: Are your shadow aspects running your life or is your Soul in charge? Do you make choices from a place of fear or from a place of joy? We all have voices in our head, but the conscious queen chooses which thoughts and emotions she identifies with. She chooses who she wants to be, how she wants to live, and what her priorities are regardless of what other people think, say, or do. She literally chooses her reality by choosing her beliefs. Whenever she loses touch of her crystalline clarity, she calls upon her most trusted consultant: her Soul.
Take a moment now to feel the essence of your inner queen. Imagine looking into her soulful eyes, and breathing in her scent of feminine strength. Let her lead you into your very own wisdom. Indulge in your imagination, and ask yourself the following questions:
What does your queen-self look like? How does she walk, breathe and talk?
What does it feel like to be her?
What is her perspective on your life?
What wisdom does she have to share with you?
What is she ready to share with the world?
What makes a person powerful is power, but what makes a person sovereign is Soul-presence. And what makes your life royal is not your position in society, but your consciousness. The minute you honour yourself and everyone else, life will treat you royally.
