5 ways to Live a Royal Life without a Royal Budget

Living a Royal Life doesn’t mean spending lots of money to buy extravagant things. Universal lore teaches that it will provide us with what we need according to our vibration; in other words, we will receive the same as we are vibrating at… like attracts like.

In the Hermetic tradition, the study of the hidden sciences, there are 7 principles, one being ‘so within, so without’. Meaning what is happening inside is a reflection of our outer life. 

In other words, we can tell what a person’s subconscious mind is like by the life they lead.

Using the hermetic principles, we can start to make any changes we desire to our life right away…. by changing what is happening inside of us. 

Initiates in the Hermetic tradition use many tools to raise their vibration. The most effective way I have found to make change is the ancient path of initiation.

In times gone by, initiation was reserved for nobility and royalty. Often this is misunderstood to mean those born a prince or princess, but it, in fact, means all those that choose to live a royal life or what we would refer to a successful life in the physical world. 

In the ancient lineage of King Salomon (Hermetic teachings), we are all sovereign beings, yet we have forgotten or are simply not wearing our crowns. However, the good news is there is a map to help us retrieve that crown. Thus, the need for study in the ancient mystery schools has existed since the beginning, in one form or another.

There are many ways we can raise our vibration, and those that have studied the hidden sciences dedicate their life to this path to help others do the same. This is the most efficient way to raise ourselves up, by helping others; it is known as service. It is through serving another we ‘Know Thyself’.

Hopefully this blog will help give a few top tips on how to work with your own energy to lift ones vibration, to start living the life you would like to live or as I call it, how to live a royal life

What are your thoughts and actions attracting? 

Can you see where you could improve? 

Let’s not beat ourselves up. Most of us have been programmed to ‘be grateful’ that we have a job (even though we are unhappy) or grateful for the roof over our head (even though we want to travel and see the world). 

These little thoughts have created a mindset of ‘let’s make do’. We call that mediocrity which is the opposite of royalty. It comes with no responsibility or drive and a false sense of entitlement; you should have it all without pressure, accountability, or duty to help others.

Does that sound like the world we see today?

I can share the first secret of success in living the life you want to live … that’s not a Royal way of thinking. I’m here to go against popular belief and say NO to that! You are Royal, a fantastic being that can attract anything you like, and growth comes with responsibility. 

I first learnt this as a young entrepreneur in my early 20’s. I used these raw (not trained in any way) talents in my first business venture, which was nominated for Grazia Businesswomen of the year, amongst other accolades. 

I knew the power of the mind but had no system to follow; I was doing what I thought would work. I read whatever I could and used it to the best of my understanding. Fast forward to my 30’s, and I attracted….. yes, I called out and received the training I needed with the Modern Mystery School to help me use my gifts to their full potential.

Using this system, I took my 2nd business venture from 1 – 16 countries in one year, so I feel I’m well equipped to talk about this subject.

10 years on, my company is now in over 40 countries and has been awarded by HRH Princess Ann, the Princess Royal Training Awards. We reached over 27,000 new children in one year in 2020, which all comes from living a certain way. 

Success  (or living the life you want to live) comes with responsibility and a certain mindset. This is validated in those who set their own way of earning an income rather than being employed. The ones that make it are the ones that will go the extra mile, take on the responsibility, invest in their growth, and are humble to learn and heal. 

Let’s look at 5 easy ways to Live a Royal life……something you can do right away to achieve success of living the life you want.

1.  Are you thinking Royally? 

Chances are you aren’t; if you were, then you would be living a Royal Life. 

This doesn’t mean going and spending a load of money and getting into debt to buy what you think will make life Royal. No, let’s get deeper; let’s go to the core. 

A successful or person will automatically expect certain things in their life, things they need.  Good food, beautiful clothes, great friends, a clean home.

What are you thinking about?

The universe responds to our thoughts and actions….it doesn’t judge. It doesn’t say ‘Hey… you know you can have more?’ 

So, let’s start thinking Royally and adjust what you ‘need’. 

Make a list of how you want to live and do it today! This is super fun and automatically raises our vibration.

Let’s break this down a little more;

How would you think if you wanted a royal experience and there were no limitations in place? What would it look like? 

The way we think is the MOST important part of manifestation. We can only manifest what we can imagine. That is the universal lore, it’s not because I said it is so; this is just the way it is. This is why children benefit hugely from the creative arts when they are young. They must be able to imagine the most amazing creations to create something out of this world.

Our society is based on the beautiful minds of others, the buildings we see, the rocket to the moon, and electricity. They all started as someone’s dream idea; this is how we create and manifest in the physical world. If we stop thinking creatively, the world will stop growing, become stagnant, and regress. We can see that in countries that have stopped education for a specific demographic, their society has become unbalanced, stagnant and regressed. 

But let’s get back to that Royal Living. 

When you think about something, and it’s not a high vibration… STOP yourself and change it. If we do this enough times….  Slowly it will change the way you make decisions. 

Have a list of 10 excellent thoughts you can immediately think of in these moments to fill your mind with positivity. 

In the hermetic tradition, we use rituals to shift our energy to stop this mindset from controlling our will. Instead, we train for our will to put our mind in motion. We are the captain of our ship. Our thoughts do not control the way our day goes. We take control and make the day as we want. 

2 – Do you appear to be Royal? 

So, what are you wearing? 

A few years ago my stepson gave me such a telling-off for judging him on what he was wearing until I explained this concept. The way that you dress reflects your vibration; I don’t walk around with a diamond crown on my head to be Royal (however, let me tell you a secret, I would, given the opportunity), but what I do is wear clothes that raise my vibration and make me feel good. 

I don’t put dirty clothes on, I don’t wear clothes that don’t fit me correctly, and I don’t wear clothes that irritate my skin or make me uncomfortable. 

You can wear whatever you like, any style, in fact, I encourage you to express yourself, wear colour and be free but make sure you feel royal. There are so many outlets you can get good clothes, even the second-hand shops in certain parts of London carry the most amazing brands, and most have yet to be worn. There are plenty of options to suit your budget.

If new clothes are out of your reach, why not do a clothes swap party with your friends? Get their input on what looks good on you. Are you dressing for the life you want? Or dressing for the life you have? 

Make sure the items you wear are clean and repair any damage. Choose a few outfits you really like and wear them all the time. It doesn’t matter that you wear them again and again; if it looks Royal and you feel Royal then keep going! 

 Look at your wardrobe and throw out any old clothes that no longer fit you. Making space and being clear with what quality you own signals what you expect to come into your life. You will be amazed at what will happen. 

It is way better to have less in your wardrobe, but of good quality, than a lot that doesn’t fit or doesn’t represent what you want in your life. Remember like attracts like, we are attracting more of what we have. 

If you want something different, throw out or give away the items that no longer serve your new life. You may find you do this several times. The more you grow, the more you change, which will be reflected in what and how you wear your clothes. 

If you don’t like waste, make sure the items go to a good home and share your good fortune with others. Letting go of items will make room in your life energetically and physically. This means more room for wonderful new things to come to you! 

Being less attached to items is such a great practice. It creates freedom and royalty is for sure being free. 

3 – What you speak, you create. Are your words Royal?

Would the Queen have been caught chatting about how rubbish life is? NO! 

The way you speak and what you speak about is a powerful tool. Listen to your language. Is it high vibration and positive?  Or low vibration and unhelpful? 

We can still use constructive criticism or discernment; we don’t have to be smiley and agree with everything to be positive, but we can use a positive way to address someone or a situation. If you can’t, then it’s better to walk away.

Listen to how you speak to your family, especially your children. Is that the way we want them to talk to others? If it isn’t, then don’t do it! Your words carry the power to change lives.  If you don’t believe me, let’s look at people that have done this… Ghandi, Malcom X, Mother Theresa and the list goes on. 

The power of the spoken word is the most underused tool in your life. Words are vibration; in the Hermetic tradition, we say all magick is spoken.

In fact, the word Abracadabra means ‘I create what I speak.’

Abracadabra is the most famous word we all associate with magick, meaning I create what I speak. Now, if that isn’t the biggest hint that your words matter, I’m not sure what is!

How are you speaking to yourself in your inner world? 

This is also a reflection of how you appear and carry yourself. Would you talk to your best friend in this way? 

Again your thoughts matter, and your inner dialogue is a key indicator of how you live your life. Don’t let that inner mind bring you down. In the hermetic tradition or ancient mystery school tradition, we call that the negative ego or the lower mind. 

Most people live their life from this lower vibration of thought, which shows in their daily lives. If you are connected to your higher self or positive ego, then your inner talk would reflect that you are a Queen or King. Your internal dialogue would be a pleasant experience even when being challenged; We see that as an opportunity for growth.

When the lower self is in control of the inner dialogue, we experience anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts in extreme cases, so how you speak to yourself matters. 

When I met Princess Ann, I was taken aback at how she carried herself and the energy she had. She knew her worth, not in an arrogant way. She was confident to be who she was at that moment and wanted to hear about the people she was serving. She was present at that moment. What she said was clear and well thought out. Her words carried weight, and everyone listened. 

What weight are your words carrying? When you speak, is it constructive, positive, helpful or supportive? Are you offering a solution if you see an issue? Use your words to raise your vibration and that of others. 

Changing your words and response is free; you can start right away. Watch the impact it has on your life and those around you. Let’s lift each other up to be Royal and not take each other down with our powerful tool of speech.

4 – Do I treat my body as though it is Royal

Ok, so this one can touch a few nerves. 

What are you putting into your body and how are you treating your body? Do you drive through takeaways each night and expect your body to function at its peak? Are you drinking fizzy drinks and overriding your system with sugar so it can’t function the way it needs to? Are you eating for the sake of eating? Are you sitting down all day, not moving your body, and wondering why you have so many aches and pains? 

Sorry to say this, lovely people, but your body is a holy temple, and unless you treat it that way, it will become a run-down shack in a bad place in town. It’s as simple as that. You are the one that is in control of what you put into your body and how you move it. No one else can help you. 

So, what can we do today to start treating the body royally?

Walk! Just walking and moving the body, or try some Chi Do (here is a link to a free live session each week with the Modern Mystery School UK & EU team) created by Gudni Gudnason... it’s awesome! 

Do the housework (in a royal way, of course!). Whatever you decide, do it now. It doesn’t have to be exercising 5 times a week with an expensive trainer, you can do so much at home and its things we already know how to do.

Are you exercising too much and not eating enough? This is not supporting your physical structure. Would you starve a Royal being? Would you overfeed a Royal being? NO! You are a Royal being, so treat yourself as one when it comes to food and exercise. 

Let’s also look at what we consume. 

Food is fuel, so what fuel do you need? I’m vegan because it suits me, and my vibration is much higher than when I was consuming dairy (I haven’t eaten meat in 35 + years), but it’s your choice; my point is to find what works for you. 

Don’t be scared by the endless information about how not eating meat will not give you protein or how eating fruit will increase your sugar levels! Most of this is nonsense; as a doctor of natural medicine, an area I studied at length is nutrition. Find a plan that works for you. Be brave and test things before you choose what is good and what is not. 

Choose royal foods, as in choose foods that support your awesomeness! It’s better to have less good quality over lots of poor quality. 

I know it’s a tricky subject, but most of us are in control of what we put into our bodies and how we move the body, so make it a good choice and start right away. 

Your weight and health are connected to a balanced mindset. Having one part of us that is not in balance affects our entire well-being. Royalty is lifting yourself up to that higher standard because you care about yourself and others. 

5 – Do I live in a Royal place?

I went to Buckingham palace a few years ago and what struck me was the energy that the rooms held, so much so that I decided that all my rooms would look like the staterooms…. that is a work in progress LOL! But on a serious note, is your home Royal, is your workspace Royal? 

Meaning is it clean and tidy, would you be happy to invite a very important person to your home? It doesn’t need gold gilded ceilings but clean and well maintained. 

Look at how you could raise the vibration in your home. Some lovely cushions, fresh flowers, candles, incense, music playing, and soft lighting. These are all things that you can do for not a lot of money. 

Look at the plates you eat off and the cups you use. Simple things can be addressed right away. Once in order, you can add Royal touches here and there, maybe a painting you did or a lovely bedspread; you can collect items over time. 

Keep an eye out for unique things that will make your own Buckingham Palace. 

Your environment is a KEY part of your living a Royal Life. It will help you to think from that mindset. The environment we are surrounded by very much determines the life we lead and our health. Studies have shown that environmental health is a key contributor. 

This is important work and not just about being fancy. Precious metals hold higher frequencies, again showing us vibration is present in all that we do, say and see. 

I raise my environment by creating an amazing altar holding a high home vibration. This is very simple to do and should contain the four elements, Earth (could be a crystal or plant), Water (shell or chalice of water), Air (incense or feather), Fire (candle).

Place each item onto a lovely altar cloth, and you instantly lift the vibration of that room or home. 

Sacred Geometry also helps raise the vibration of any man-made structure. We use these ancient lineage tools to create a temporary or permanent sacred space anywhere we choose. These tools have been used in many chapels and stately homes in Europe for thousands of years. That is why walking in it feels different, peaceful, and fit for a Queen, one might say! 

I use a lot of fresh flowers in my home, but you will find what works for your inner King or Queen. 

Living a Royal life doesn’t need to involve a Royal Budget. However, once one implements a Royal standard of living, then our ‘needs’ change and guess what? The universe will respond and give you what you need.

As mentioned, I’ve tried and tested this system; however, deeper training to become an expert in any system is highly recommended. Just as I found when I started my studies with the Modern Mystery School. Ancient ways of doing things doesn’t mean it’s outdated; in fact, they were more advanced than our modern-day structure is today.

I love that I can use this work to inspire others to live Royally, and that I’m able to live this way.
