The term “queen” has been one of those words that we, women, use to encourage one another or to simply use as an affirmation. It is a constant reminder that you are, as we used to say in the 90s, ALL THAT! It means being confident and fierce and feeling beautiful inside and out. For me, it is accepting all imperfections and knowing they don’t make you less beautiful. It is knowing your worth.
I want to take a step further, however, and get a little spiritual on you. Queendom is remembering that you are royalty. It is walking in your light. One of my favorite scripture says, “But you are a CHOSEN generation, a ROYAL priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” -1 Peter 2:9 NKJV. See ladies, you were born into this queendom. My favorite part of the scripture is, “…called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” According to google, light has always been a symbol of holiness, goodness, and wisdom. Darkness means the opposite, sin…despair. He called us out of sin and despair into goodness giving us wisdom. There is another scripture that says, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” -Matthew 5:16 NKJV. Too many women struggle with letting our light shine. My purpose for building this queendom is so that we can gracefully, fearlessly, and unapologetically walk in our light.
The problem is our light is our biggest fear. There is a beautiful passage called Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson, that says (shortened), “…Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” That is the question I want you queens to think about. Who are you not to be? She goes on to say in this passage, “we are born to manifest the glory of God.” I have come to realize that we are often our worst enemies. We question our worth? We question our skills? Moms compare themselves to other moms. Wives compare themselves to other wives. Single ladies are thinking they aren’t equipped with what they need to get the man of their dreams. We sell ourselves short because we think less of ourselves, or we compensate for what we think we lack by being there for others more than we are for ourselves just to get their validation. Giiiirrrllll, all that is draining. It soaks your energy and clouds your mind.
Women are multi-faceted individuals, meaning having different sides to them. Sometimes we allow those many different things to pull us in all different directions. We, then, begin to lose ourselves; but here is some more google knowledge for you. Diamonds are usually cut to be multifaceted to increase their ability to reflect light. Diamonds are considered the most precious and enduring of gemstones. They also symbolize light. Think of how precious God must have considered us to treat us as if we are diamonds. Molding us, sculpting us, and shaping us to increase our ability to reflect light. Every experience, emotion, heartache, trial, upset, etc. has been perfectly orchestrated to improve our quality and to glorify Him. We were meant to shine, so why are we constantly dimming or shrinking ourselves trying to stay hidden?
Queendom is a state of mind, it is a lifestyle. It is getting up every day, holding your head up, and walking in your light. I am a strong believer in the law of attraction. The energy you exude will be the energy you receive. When you live each day fully aware of all of who you are, and you know what you bring to the table, you will attract things and people that will be representative of that. When you start believing and seeing yourself as the queen you are, you will start attracting royalty. Of course, not in the literally sense, but in the spiritual sense. You start aligning with like-minded and spirited people that will be beneficial to your mental, emotional, and spiritual growth.
So, power to the chosen people! It serves you no good to downplay your royal goodness nor does it serve any good to the people around you and all that you touch. Look at yourself and recognized who you are and own it! YOU ARE LIGHT! YOU ARE ROYALTY! YOU ARE A QUEEN! Hold your head high, arch that back, and walk in it. You have a Queendom to maintain.
