The following is an excerpt from Chapter 2 of my book, Happily Ever After Right Now, “Magnificence: Choosing to be Queen”:
As a psychotherapist, I have listened to hundreds of clients repeat the same story. They are either looking for the perfect relationship, or else they are in a relationship that has turned out to be less than perfect and want their partner to change. Need I mention that most of these clients are women? In every case, they have set aside their power and forgotten their innate sovereignty. Instead, they are looking outside, to the world or to someone else, to be their saving grace, the answer to their heart’s desires, the key to long-term happiness. They have forgotten their value. They have forgotten their worth. They have forgotten that they are Queens.
Merriam Webster’s (1989) definition of a Queen is “something personified as a woman, who is considered the best or most important of her kind.” That something is Magnificence:
“noble in character; great in deed or exalted in place; marked by stately grandeur and lavishness; strikingly beautiful or impressive; sumptuous in structure and adornment; exceptionally fine” (Webster, 1989, p.440).
That’s what’s inside of you. That’s who you are…A powerful woman. A grounded woman. A woman, whose self-esteem radiates from every cell of her being. Begin to think of yourself in these terms. Every single event that has brought you to this moment has laid the foundation for your Magnificence to emerge. Claim it, now.
Have you been looking outside of yourself for the key to long-term happiness? If so, go easy on yourself. To do so is dialed-in to your DNA. And, you can change your wiring. How? Start out by being AWARE on when you are giving your power away and turning over your happiness to something or someone else.
Looking forward to discussing this with you.
