Home sweet home after an 11-day journey. The house-sitter filled the apartment with flowers and ironed my pillowcases. Never in my five-year history of using house-sitters have I ever come home to such graciousness. I feel like a Queen.
That must be why I dreamt about the Queen last night. Yes, the Queen. Elizabeth II of England, the current monarch whose face appears on our Canadian money.
In the dream, she and I became pals, riding to the grocery store together in her royal coach, talking about the house she stayed in the last time she was in Whitehorse (in the late '50s) and why the Royals are so popular in the NWT (when I was in that great Territory last year Royal fever was everywhere).
It wasn't exactly easy making small talk with Her Majesty. I was trying to be myself as well as respectful, which made for an uncertain sense of being, but in the end we managed to cobble together a decent conversation as we headed for the Extra Foods store down the road.
I'm thinking the dream has to do with self-worth. Some of the wind was knocked out of my sails last week and it's been a steady helm back to full speed ahead ever since. Arriving home last night to find the apartment looking and feeling like a 5-star hotel brought up the question, "Do I deserve this?"
The good news is I think I do. The even better news is I think you do, too.
I don't think I deserve abundance because I'm special or different or working so much harder than anyone else. I believe we deserve abundance because we are Queens and Kings, all of us.
The Queen of England is no better or worse than any of us. She doesn't deserve her riches any more than we do. She doesn't NOT deserve them either. Every single one of us, no matter who we are, no matter what we look like, no matter what we do or don't do, say or don't say, deserves the kind of riches afforded to royalty.
Now, you might think I'm talking about castles and jewels and great wealth. I'm not. Well, I am. But metaphorically speaking. The riches we deserve are Unconditional Love and Abundance. Unconditional Love and Abundance are the birthright of every single person that enters this little planet we call Earth.
How do I know this? By what authority can I make this statement? By Divine Authority. That's right. Celia McBride, D.A.
Try something. Set yourself on a rigorous path of healing to free yourself of the shame that keeps you bound to fear. Embark on a spiritual journey that involves prayer and meditation. Each day, make it your practice to seek the Highest Wisdom that is within you. Listen for the Truth. You, too, will come to know It.
Divine Authority is not for the "chosen" few. You know that expression "Many are called, few are chosen"? There's a better version: "All are called. Few choose to follow."
Choosing to follow the Divine leads to a deeper understanding of who we really are. We are Royal, in every sense of the word.
Inspiring Message of the Day: I am a Queen. I am a King. The riches of Unconditional Love and Abundance are my birthright. Today I will accept them knowing this is the Highest Truth of All.
