The Sovereign: “Gentle Power”
The Sovereign Speaks: “It is not our desire to possess power, but to radiate it out in ever increasing waves, sending these seedlings of empowerment into the world, taking root in all your hearts. We do not hold on, we allow this power to extend out, to flow and to be yours, too.
To be a Queen, to be the sovereign of your world is not what so many beings feel and dream it to be. It is not about the instant fulfillment of whimsical desires, nor is it the power of enjoying personal luxury while others suffer and lament. It is to be a caretaker and an example to all. I ask you now, that is you wish to be treated as royal and as the sovereign in your world, you must become truly royal: care for the others around you, walk amongst them, bear yourself with dignity and courage, no matter the circumstance, and know that no small thing is too humble to be of interest to you. Look around your world and see where you have confused the fulfillment of desire with the role of sovereign… and take up the mantle of that role in your life now. It is no burden, but it is a responsibility. You are Queen or King… you are Sovereign… you are the one who creates your world. Like it or not, you are the one who must change the order of what is, and bring about the change you wish to see elsewhere by bringing it forth from within yourself.”
About The Sovereign: “The Sovereign is a Dragonfae Queen who rules the element of the Earth. She is of the autumn, of the mineral world and of those things that grow. She is compassionate and loving, and filled with a sense of her own power that only encourages the power of others. Thus, she is an inspiration and muse to all those wishing for mentors in the realm of their own personal sovereignty. She offers a different experience to the one many of us have been taught: that of competition, that of beings fearfully taking what they can, while they can, as they are so wracked with the anxiety that there are insufficient resources to go around. She dwells in teh realms of the infinite and protects all she dwells with. However, she does not allow this harmful vibration to enter her magical realm, so those with grasping hands and hearts will never see her, or feel her true deep magic. Open hearted we must be, sovereign to ourselves, loving unto ourselves and full of the knowledge that we already have more than enough… our role is to be fully who we are and play our part in the dance of life. She is soft, and yet she is majesty. This is for you to allow into your life, now.”
Divinatory Meaning of The Sovereign: “Refusing to acknowledge yourself as the Creator in your own world, blaming authority figures, seeing only the trappings and not the humanity and the responsibility, being too influenced by others who you see as successful, powerful others, thus giving away your power. Not taking care of the little things in your own domain, seeing what is yours now as unworthy of great care or interest.”
Working With The Sovereign: “Feel your own soft majesty. Feel your power, now, and express it through living in integrity. Be responsible, beginning now and incrementally taking the vibratory level up gently each day for your world. Care for the Earth by recycling and composting, and consuming in an aware fashion. Exert gentle influence by being a wonderful example to others. Be your magnificent, sovereign self, as this Dragonfae lady guides you back to the path of true and deep glory: not the glory of the material, or of the attention, or the fame, which are all simply clutter. But to truly care for yourself, to have the freedom to choose your role, to have the right to create a luxurious and sumptuous and beautiful environment in which to dwell, and to bear yourself with dignity and regal splendour, without others trying to cut you down to size again – this is what you must now do. Your integrity – or theirs? No longer believe the untruths of those in authority – become your own authority and live in the light of your own truth.”*

Again we are reminded that our biggest gift to those around us is the sharing of ourselves; being of service, shining our light and opening ourselves up to Love. There is no need for power trips in the New Earth, there is no reason to struggle, to control. One of the biggest shifts is that of releasing the “power over others” mentality and replacing it with acceptance and allowing.
We are merely vessels of Universal power, love and wisdom. This flow is blocked when we start to feel lack, or less-than another. When we engage in lower vibrational energies like envy, jealousy, unworthiness, fear and doubt, we stop the flow of this infinite wisdom. This is when ego takes the wheel and we become focused on the wielding of the power, the judgment and the hierarchy.
When we step past ego into Soul, we come back to being the vessel. There is no fear here, only Love, only Light. Our strength comes from our deep knowing, from our absolute acceptance and our refusal to judge or compare. It comes from stepping into the fullness of our own Being; and it comes from letting others step into theirs, no matter how that looks for them. It is knowing that we learn from everyone, and that lessons come in many forms, filled with joy and with pain; and learning them regardless. Free from drama and attachment we let the life force life through us, guiding us and flowing through it as it flows through us. We know ourselves to be the makers of our own reality, manifesting what we focus on. We trust in our own choices and we listen to our hearts to guide us, taking full responsiblity for how the world shapes around us.
And so it is
