The Importance of Honoring Ourselves

Vision of the Golden Chair is a poem inviting us to consider our value, our importance in the world. For many of us, imagining that we are all to be worshipped for the powerful beings that we are is a challenge. It makes us uncomfortable, unworthy – we ask: “could I be comfortable sitting in a Golden Chair of my own?”

Even with a guide by her side, the woman in this poem questions whether or not she should be in the Golden Chair. The guide assures us that this is our birthright. As God’s children, we were all made in his image. God’s and Goddesses born to inherit an abundance of blessings! This isn’t a gift meant for a chosen few, it is meant for us all. It is up to us to connect with that which is already ours.

How do we achieve this? How do find our own Golden Chair? Our spirit guide in the poem tells us that those who have come to honor our heroine have faced their own hardships and in doing so have discovered their worth and know where they stand. This is about being able to love ourselves enough to create boundaries. We have accepted our perfect imperfections. We believe we are enough. We express gratitude for powerful spiritual being we know ourselves to be.

Vision of the Golden Chairis a poem that empowers us to embrace our majestic nature. It reminds us that this is a value that we must honor in everyone we encounter. We all have endured hardships that have led us to where we are in this present moment. When we love and honor ourselves, we find it natural to treat everyone we meet with dignity and respect regardless of what they may have done in the past.

Greatness lies within every one of us. It is up to us to recognize this and give ourselves permission to express this greatness freely. We are not given life to play small or to be shrinking violets. We all have a gift, something that we were put here to do, to share with the world. We cannot give into our fears or our doubts. We must have faith, trust in our intuition and listen to our spirit guides.

What will you do when you’re invited to sit in your Golden Chair? Do you believe you are worthy of the blessings that are waiting for you? Do you love yourself enough to put your needs before the needs of others, or are you still looking for love and acceptance of others? Until we learn how to love, honor and respect ourselves, we won’t be able to fully enjoy our Golden Chair. We must embrace the God within each and every one of us in order to truly enjoy the abundance and prosperity that is our birthright.

Know that you are powerful, believe that you are worthy and elevate yourself and others to higher states of consciousness and awareness.

My favorite European cars

European cars are mesmerizing and among my favorites are the: BMW 507, XJ13 Jaguar, and the Mercedes – Benz 300SL “Gullwing”. In this post, I’ll tell you why I’m in love with these cars. First off why am I so crazy for European cars? They stand out! Not just in quality and functionality (there’s also some not so good ones, every market has them) but it’s also the design. It’s almost like they have no boundaries when it comes to the design and execution of these cars. Anyone melts at their sight.

The BMW 507 is one of the most beautiful sports car in history (to me at least). This roadster is the best example of the resurgence of the brand after the Second World War. He used a 3.2-liter V8 engine with 150 HP. This power transmitted to the rear axle through a ZF four speed. Only 253 units were manufactured at the time so its price then and now is extremely high.

The XJ13 Jaguar was the company’s commitment to participate in Le Mans in the mid- 60s, but the project was never finished and never took part in the French test. In 1965, this prototype was built with an aluminum body and centrally 5.0 engine, placed in 12-V cylinder.Two circumstances influenced negatively for the XJ13 not pass the prototype stage: one, the merger of Jaguar with BMC in 1966 – the new partners were not very keen to continue with the project- and the other: the fact that Ford had a 7-liter engine in the GT40 leaving the Jaguar 5.0 nigh obsolete. Regardless of this tragedy, the build and elegance of this car is magnificent and it’s often ranked as one of the top 10, 20 & 50 best cars in the history of the company and transportation.

Mercedes – Benz 300SL “Gullwing”(1955-1957 ): It’s system of opening doors -in the form of gull’s wings, the design and performance, and its history make the 300SL one of the most recognized and valued cars for good in the history of  cars. The Widow maker, it’s the nickname given to this car in Germany and responding to the number of widows left behind an accident with it, was one of the first supercars ever manufactured. The first design was the coupe version but the convertible was manufactured later as well.
