Last week I shared an excerpt from my book, “Happily Ever After Right Now” on reprogramming ourselves, and how the only way we can discover true happiness is to be thorough in our investigation of self.  Below are a few gems (or jewels), which can serve as cues on how to take the inner journey.

Whether dormant and disguised or fully operative in their most optimal brilliance, the polishing of these gemstones is what will awaken us to the true callings of the heart. It is no coincidence that each number below represents a chapter title of my book:

1. Entitlement: Let Go of the Longing for the Prince

  JewelJasper for Protection, Grounding, and Clearing (Hall, 2006)


2. Magnificence: Choose to be Queen

Jewel: Jacinth for Wisdom, Honor, and Riches


3. Majesty: Lose the Slave Girl

Jewel: Chrysolite for Manifesting Dreams into Reality and Attracting Love


4. Sovereignty: Stop Looking for the Answers Outside Yourself

Jewel: Sapphire for Focusing and Calming the Mind


5. Power: Give Up Your Addictions

Jewel: Amethyst for Love and Spiritual Power


6. Alchemy: Take Back Your Projections

Jewel: Sardonyx for Harmony


7. Regality: Be Attached to Nothing

Jewel: Aquamarine for Invoking High States of Consciousness (Hall, 2006)


8. Passion: Fully Express Your Gifts to the World


Jewel:
 Beryl for Actualizing Potential and Loving Unconditionally (Hall, 2006)


9. Preeminence: Live Like a Queen Every Day

Jewel: Rose Quartz for Attracting Unconditional Love


10. Partnership: Revamp Your Relationship with Men

Jewel: Angelite for Courage in Speaking Your Truth and Acceptance of Others


11. Legacy: For Our Daughters and Sons

Jewel: Emerald for Domestic Harmony and Loving Unconditionally (Hall, 2006)


12. Ascendancy: Take Your Queenliness to New Levels for as Long as You Live

Jewel: Diamond for Light and Illumination


Your ability to reign over your life is a function of the number of these jewels you possess. Begin, or continue collecting and as you do, realize that  you are that which happiness is made of — already. 

Love, 

Luann

The Magic of Majesty

As you diminish your victim thoughts, words, and actions, you will begin to tap into the magic of the Queen/King. Like the heroes/heroines in fairy tales who had to accomplish some seemingly impossible task, you will be able to set aside apparent “real” limits and move steadily to your goals coming from the inspirations of your heart. The Grimm’s (fairy tale) girls, for instance, invariably did what they needed to do — they got a good night’s sleep — and allowed the guidance of their inner wisdom to handle the rest. The internal womb of stillness will always point us to peace. Our only task is to listen and then follow where the insights direct us.

You are not a victim and you are not alone. Your inner happiness is always available to you. When your partner appears (or is already there), you see her/him as someone who can help to enhance your already happy state. You do not depend on her/him; rather, together you learn the art of interdependence. Your commitment is to growth, authenticity, truth, love, joy, and a foundation of compassionate, honest communication. Each of you knows that there are no guarantees for ever after. If, at any time, your peace is interrupted, you are willing to share and negotiate. And when there can be no resolve because he/she refuses to negotiate with you, or you with your partner, you know what to do. Move on.

Love,

Luann

The Payoff

“Much of your pain is self-chosen. It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility: For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen, and the cup he brings forth, though it burns your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.” — Kahlil Gibran (1951, p. 51) The Prophet

How did we get to be such drudges — such slaves? Cultural stories steadily seep into our psyche like a leaky faucet that never gets fixed. Then, our conditioning ensconces them into our skulls. One story goes like this: “There is a payoff for playing the part of the pitiful and pathetic.” We are taunted and tormented by the twisted part of ourselves that would prefer to be right instead of happy. And, when we identify with the victim, we don’t have to be responsible for our lives. Instead, we can blame someone else when things fall apart. Mired in the murk of our drudgery, we don’t have to face the fear of expanding into larger lives than we’ve ever experienced before. 


Over time, patterns of thought and behavior become rigid. They form fixed physical connections in the brain. So, even as much as we can visualize a life of peace and happiness, actually taking responsibility for making it happen can seem to be a formidable challenge. Our old beliefs continue to haunt us. Many of us have spent most of our lives believing that the Prince is out there (rather than in here), and so we must be gentle with ourselves if we continue to cling to the daydream. As we become more alert to the old, outdated beliefs, we can use them as a signal. They can serve to trigger our thinking in another direction — noticing all the ways we can move more fully into our Majesty.


In our firm resolve to become the Queen/King and let go of the drudge, we must live our lives by using insight, instead of instinct. Insight is about listening to the soul. Instinct is the reactive part of our nature, directly linked to all of our primal conditioning, which provokes the perpetuation of the dull, dissatisfied drudge. When we listen to our intuition, or insight, our fears and ego may continue to bring on strong and challenging arguments. In fact, as we make changes in ourselves, deeper and deeper layers of conditioning and fear rise to the surface for healing. It takes courage to change. No problem. You are that which courage is made of. Your valor is always available to you, because it sleeps in your substance. When you are willing to call forth your warrior spirit, nothing can stop you. You will hear the still voice inside — guiding you through your doubt and quieting the subtle fears, which sneak in to stunt your progress and growth. 

Let’s call forth our warrior spirits together, and become unstoppable.

Love,

Luann
