The Real Woman Creed

In the interest of keeping the Valentine Day energy alive for this entire week, I will be posting messages to stimulate your love for the Queen of Your Self.

The Real Woman Creed
By Jan Phillips, CA
 
I believe that within me lies an extraordinary radiance, and I commit to letting my light loose in the world.

I believe that the source of my power and wisdom is in the center of my being, and I commit to acting from this place of strength.

I believe that I possess an abundance of passion and creative potential, and I commit to the expression of this gift.

I believe that the time has come to let go of old notions and unhealthy attitudes, and I commit to re-examine what I have been told about beauty and dismiss what insults my soul.

I believe that negative thoughts and words compromise my well-being, and I commit to thinking and speaking positively about myself and others.

I believe that young women are in need of positive role models, and I commit to being an example of authenticity and self-love.

I believe in the relationship between my well-being and the well-being of the planet,  And I commit to a life of mindfulness that regards all living things as holy and worthy of my love.

I believe it is my spiritual responsibility to care for my body with respect, kindness and compassion. I commit to balancing my life in such a way that my physical being is fully expressed and nurtured.

I believe that joy is an essential part of wellness, and I commit to removing obstacles to joy and creating a life of exuberance.

I believe that a woman who loves herself is a powerful, passionate, attractive force, and I commit, from this day forward, to loving myself deeply and extravagantly.

My Journey to Health, Wealth and Happiness!

My Journey to Health, Wealth and Happiness!
By Susan Briggs, Australia
 
I spent many years struggling under the cloud of low self-esteem.  I was a shy and introverted child and evolved into a teenager who possessed a huge lack of self-worth, very little confidence and a good dose of self doubt.

I grew up believing that my opinion didn’t count, that  I had nothing worth saying and that everyone else knew more than me.  All my limiting beliefs stopped me from achieving all that I desired and although I had many attempts to break out of my shell including taking a job as a radio announcer at the age of 18 and enrolling myself in various courses to learn new skills, there were always those beliefs lurking in the background that I could not shake and all my attempts to break out were futile.

I went through two marriages, two divorces and ended up a single mum with two small children at the age of 35. I couldn’t seem to take a trick…until finally I discovered how to deal with my limiting beliefs. I learned how to effectively attract what I wanted and I was then able to create for myself the life that I desired.

I then made it my mission to reach out and help as many women as possible to raise their levels of self-esteem and self-worth to create improvements in all areas of their lives. Our health, our finances and our relationships are all affected by our level of self-esteem but it doesn’t have to be that way. I have done it the hard way so that you can benefit from my experience. Let me help you to create success and forge a new life with new beliefs and values that will support you and assist you to grow.

My life’s journey has taken many twists and turns and I can honestly say that I am now at a stage in my life where all the ghosts of the past have been exorcised and the way forward is bright and exciting.

I would love to say that I have no regrets, however that would not be entirely true. My one big regret is that I did not learn the power of high self esteem or the mastery of confidence earlier on in my life. Still, at the end of the day, I know that it is never too late to start and I will always be eternally grateful for the opportunities and teachings that crossed my path and lead me to the life I now enjoy.

Make the decision to start your journey and discover who you really are and what you are truly capable of.

Now is a good time.

Being Pleased With Your Self

posted by Donna Henes

In the interest of keeping the Valentine Day energy alive for this entire week, I will be posting messages to stimulate your love for the Queen of Your Self.

I recently received this wonderfully refreshing letter from a sister Queen who is definitely pleased with her Self:

…Despite the anticipation and the promise of something potentially special, he was not attractive to me. And I think that’s important — that although I have had my misgivings about meeting someone as I am — overweight and older — I felt attractive and lively and lovely and charming and desirable in many ways. My inner womanly, Queenly core, was quite strong — it never dawned on me to feel less than attractive. And I thank all you Queens for helping me to feel that. Our circle of love and faith in one another has just added to the pool, the large pond, the lake, the sea of deep-rooted sense of Good Self that stays, no matter what…
– A fan of The Queen of My Self

Brava! You go, girl!

It gets easier as you get older. You accept yourself for who you are – your flaws and your attributes. It’s easier to live in your own skin.
– Barbra Streisand

And then I received this perfect follow up from a subscriber to The Queen’s Chronicles:

The Heart Is The Home of Wonder
By – Edie Weinstein, PA

Breathe in the warmth of this place, allowing yourself to feel a sense of welcome
It is your own love, your own beauty that beckons you inside
How long has it been, since you have crossed this threshold?
The door has always been open, the invitation always extended
Will you accept it now?

Through the windows streams sunlight, casting rainbow designs on the walls
As prism glass reflects the scattered sparkling illumination
The floor beneath your feet is soft
Caressing your skin as you tap your bare toes on its surface
Daring to dance upon it to the lilting music that only you can hear.

The table is set with all manner of lusciousness
Nourishment for body and soul awaits you
Always plenty to savor and share; a bounty spread before you
Every imaginable treat to delight your senses
The sweet aroma that curls around you.

The mirror on the wall reflects your exquisite nature
As you gaze into the eyes of the One who has been with you
Through all eternity, questioning what has kept you from recognizing
Your own ineffable Divinity
Express your adoration for the Goddess who winks back at you.

Advertisement

Feel the all-embracing comfort of this structure that was created
Brick by brick, log by log, though your daily intention
The experiences and the people you draw into your world
The thoughts that permeate your mind
The wild magic of your infinite imagination.

Valentine Self Care

posted by Donna Henes


In the interest of keeping the Valentine Day energy alive for this entire week, I will be posting messages to stimulate your love for the Queen of Your Self.

Today is Valentine’s Day and I am sick. I have been working seven-day weeks for a while now and I am beat. Yesterday I woke with a nasty cold, which lasted only 24 hours, amazingly. But it left me completely and utterly exhausted. So I postponed my Valentine’s date with my honey until tomorrow and spent the entire day in bed reading and dozing. What a fabulous relief to just let go and sink in to the mattress and get lost in my book. What a glorious way of loving my Self.

It is early evening now and I just checked my emails and look what I found! I couldn’t believe it. But of course I could believe it. My life is richly blessed with synchronistic wonder.

So now I don’t have to write what I was planning to about taking care to indulge in Self love and care, and share, instead, this wisdom sent to me by my lovely colleague in Michigan. I couldn’t have said it better.

I send all my dear sister Queens love today. Love for your Self. Love for each other. Love for humanity. Love for Mother Earth and all of Her creations and creatures. Love for Life.

xxQueen Mama Donna

Valentine Message
By Daina (DINAH) Puodziunas, MI

It’s Valentines Day and I’m sick in bed!! I’ve taken everything off my schedule and decided to see this as an opportunity to give myself a day of being kind, gentle, and loving with myself.
 
We women are so used to pushing ourselves to do more and often feel guilty when we do take time for ourselves.
 
But we have to fill our own well on a regular basis in order to have it spilling over. Only then will we not have our energy drained and we will have more than enough to share with others!!!
 
20 Ways To Become Your Own Best Friend

Advertisement

Give your self permission to:
 
1) Acknowledge your achievements.
 
2) Eat well, sleep well, and take care of your self physically.
 
3) Don’t engage in other people’s dramas. Ask yourself as Byron Katie suggests: “Is it my business, their business, or God’s busniess?
 
4) Follow your passions no matter where they take you.
 
5) Listen to your own inner voice.
 
6) Take time to get quiet, experience inner peace, and observe
  thoughts without judgment.
 
7) Release the need to blame self and others.
 
8) Instead of listening to the reprimanding, shoulding, guilting voice….listen to your heart instead.
 
9) Compliment others and notice good things about them, it will soften your judgments about your self.
 
10) Accept your self exactly how you are, where you are, what you are, who you are….YOU ARE ENOUGH JUST AS YOU ARE!!
 
11) Know your own limits. Don’t always be the one who takes on
responsibilities, says yes automatically etc.
 
12) Make your self a priority.
 
13) Have fun and enjoy life…..it’s ok to do so.
 
14) Change your mind.
 
15) When requests are made of you, get in the habit of saying: ” I don’t know, let me get back to you on that,” or “no, I don’t want to do that.”
 
16) Take up time and space.
 
17) Interpret every choice and experience you have, no matter what it is, as contributing positively to your life because you make it so (no matter what anyone else’s interpretation may be!)
 
18) Trust yourself even when you make “mistakes” or don’t know what to do immediately, or don’t know the answers.
 
19) Allow people to be disappointed about your choices and decisions.
 
20) Break personal commitments or promises if to keep them would ultimately be more harmful to self than keeping them.
