Have you ever watched someone put on a tiara or a red cape? Notice that they will hold their head higher and straighten their spine. A person wearing a cape will also put their hands on their hips like Superman and a tiara will invoke a regal wave. You cannot help but feel magnificent when donning these items.
You may ask WHY?
We have been conditioned to feel powerful due to media and society. From the time we are little, we learn about princesses and super heroes from television, movies and bed time stories. Everyone loves these characters and they always win in the end. As we grow up, we still hold on to those paradigms or beliefs. Good will triumph over evil every time.
I first discovered the tiara phenomenon while at a women’s retreat in Tobermory Ontario Canada in November 2014. The link to the site is HERE and if you have an opportunity to attend one of these retreats, I highly recommend it. I was graced with the presence of four wonderful women which included our coach, Daryl Wood. I learned a lot about myself during that retreat but it was during an exercise with props that I realized what happens when one puts on a tiara. Each of us put it on and each of us reacted the same way. As I sat writing in my journal that evening, the name of this website came to me in a flash. As soon as it came to me, I was filled with so much energy and joy that I couldn’t contain myself any longer. I started planning what it would look like and what purpose it would serve for the world. The day after I returned home, I went out to the mall and bought my own tiara.
I believe everyone should have a tiara or a cape, depending on what you prefer. My tiara is with me in my car and sometimes in my purse. When I’m feeling a little blah, I pull it out and put it on. I am immediately transported to a feeling of magnificence. I can’t help but smile and my mood lifts exponentially. At first, I thought it was a little crazy to carry around a tiara but after sharing it with others when they needed a little boost, I’ve realized that it serves a purpose.
This started the thoughts about other paradigms that were in my life. I have spent the last 9 months tackling each of these paradigms that no longer serve me. I have changed my thinking thereby changing my behaviour in situations and the results I was getting in my life. I have increased my success at work and my relationships with others are motivating, loving and positive.
Did all this happen because I put on a tiara in November? No. I had already started my journey of self-exploration way before the retreat. In fact, the retreat was part of the plan for reconnecting with myself. The tiara was the catalyst that started me on my journey towards my dream and helped me connect with my core magnificence.
Although there are paradigms that need to be demolished in everyone’s life because they are destructive to your happiness and limit your personal growth, those that bring happiness and a sense of security should remain.
If you don’t believe me, I dare you to go out and find a tiara or a cape. Put it on and see how you feel. I can assure you, it will be MAGNIFICENT!
