Her Majesty lives from a foundation of self-honoring and self-respect because she knows her value and worth. She lives with authentic self-expression, dignity and nobility because she understands her station in life. Her Majesty is revered and respected, graceful, gracious, trusted and trustworthy. This is displayed in her carriage, her coverage and her character. Her position is one of trust in her own mind and, in the minds of those with whom she surrounds herself.
A kingdom without a faith-filled Majesty leads to deception, rebellion and destruction. It is anarchy! Her majesty does not seek approval from others. She knows that her throne, her position in life, is guaranteed by virtue of her birth. She trusts life and herself enough to know that her behavior and actions must always be responsible and reasonable. She accomplishes this by making it a priority to stay connected to her Source. Her purpose is to serve the King – – the universe of life and love.
The King is the Source of her good. She knows and believes it is God who Guides Our Direction. This is the king she longs to serve first and foremost with every choice and decision.
Her Majesty is well aware that there will always be challenges to her purpose and power. She also knows the prudency and power of prayer. She retreats or stands in the appropriate posture at the appropriate time because she is grounded.
The Queen has impeccable timing and she has an arsenal of tools, weapons and an army at her disposal – – – meditation, stillness, silence, faith, trust, vision and intention. Her Majesty settles disputes, first in her own heart and mind and then, among the people in her court with reason and fairness. She ensures that her needs are met so that she can serve the people in her care appropriately.
Every new experience is regarded by Her Majesty to be like a child and children are to be cared for properly. They must be nurtured, nourished and disciplined. They must be taught their purpose and they must know their place.
Her Majesty does everything in her power to ensure that the laws of the kingdom and the universe are carried out with consistency and fairness. She manages her place in the kingdom with a gentle heart and a firm hand. She understands the importance of being of sound mind because she recognizes her connection between herself and her people – – – her thoughts.
Her Majesty the Queen is the heart. She works with the kingdom of the mind to stave off enemy invasions. She works diligently with mental, emotional and spiritual allies to create and generate well being and prosperity in the kingdom. Her natural state is poised, peaceful and merciful. There are, however, those times when she is forced into seclusion, into a period of waiting, in order to regain her strength, calm and composure. She never knows when these periods will be required or necessary. Instead, she remains ready, willing and able to submit herself to whatever is required to maintain her station for the good of the King she serves.
The greatest challenge faced by the Queen is her coronation; the ceremony giving her the right to take the throne. That is your job. It is a function of the choices you make moment by moment. Coronation of your Queen, your heart, is a function and outgrowth of your intention moment by moment.
The Queen must be authorized and approved by you if she is to rule and restore peace to your kingdom. You MUST be true to and follow your heart. Her Majesty, your heart, must be granted the right to feel, to express, to heal and to grow because she has been silenced by too many for too long.
In fact, today may be the right day to restore the Queen to the throne.
The ceremony is simply: Pray. Forgive. Be grateful to all for all. Say what you need to say. Do what you know to be right for you. This is how you honor the Majesty of God’s heart within you.
