"Kaur resonates with me as being a Queen, not the standard translation of Princess. The concept of Queen implies being Queen of one’s own kingdom and being divinely feminine. Kingdom meaning creating your own life, career, family, or creative pursuits; essentially, showing up in the world and having a purpose. In turn, using one’s own purpose to impact the world. Accepting people for who they are, for what they believe, without creating labels. Connecting with people on a soul level and viewing everything and everyone with a love. While I am more spiritual than religious, I believe there is some being that governs over everything else. My dad is very religious. He has an expansive knowledge base of the stories and saakhis central to Sikhi. Over the years, he has shared and guided our family with these kernels of wisdom because it is these stories that guide him through life’s journey. My mom, on the other hand is religious in her own way. Her guiding force is simply being a good human. She practices this faithfully and without labels. During my own life’s personal tragedy of my brother’s sudden passing, I felt that aligning myself with the Sikh values instilled by my parents allowed me to connect to my emotions, provided peace of mind, calmness, and eased the chaos that I felt surrounded my life. I felt there was a guidance from a higher level and it helped me understand and create semblance about why things had happened. This guidance and the values I drew, helped me to pick up the pieces in my life, step into my purpose, and enabled me to clarify what I was intended to accomplish. "
