Understand This…


Understand This…

Life has lessons to teach us
There are truths that we must learn
Some of these lessons will be very difficult
They will make us uncomfortable
They will challenge our will
It will seem to break your heart
It will make music sad to you
While still making you laugh…
Become patient with the lessons
You need to know them…
Life is not working against you
But only LIFE knows
What we NEED to know
Before we are able to move forward
Use your calm…
Forgiving…
Healing
Loving energy…
And embrace the message…
Whatever your may be…
Understand this…
You
Are
Not
Alone


It Is You

We were born knowing exactly who we are.

Our entire life and existence was laid out before us

But from the moment we took our first breath

We have been lied to

Deceived

Brainwashed…

In fact, our entire lives

Have been creatively constructed

To manipulate and control

Each, and every one of us

Our thoughts have been twisted

Our souls have been tempted

We have eaten every morsel

We have digested someone else’s truth

About who and what we are

Then we stand around with our hands in the air

Wondering why our sons and daughters

Are committing suicide?

They are ingesting the lies…

The lies which tell us that we are…

Not good enough

Not smart enough

Losers

Thieves

Violent

Failures…

Instead I suggest one concept…

Meditate…

Talk to your ancestors…

Through your daily ups and downs…

Ask for guidance through humility…

It’s okay to not have all the answers…

It leads to growth…

It’s okay to feel defeated…

As long as you realize…

You haven’t been defeated

These are the moments

You have been waiting for

Worry less about who you HAVE

And spend more time realizing…

How great you really are

Independent of anyone or anything else

Embrace the thought that

You Alone Are Enough…

And stop thinking of it as a punishment

The world isn’t out to get you…

It

Is

you

 


To all the beautiful people
Remember that today is tomorrows memory
Remember that even the darkness needs the LIGHT to exist
Remember that once someone had to be patient with you
That love is not a thing u do…but WHO u are
Remember that instead of seeking that perfect mate
Be that PERFECT YOU
Everything and everyone is not for you…
And that is okay
Love with your whole heart
You will never be disappointed
Love never fails…
Failure is an illusion
You have already won
The only war that you are fighting is against yourself
Today…
Choose YOU
Remember that our Creator would not create you…
With the intention for you to lose
But I will remind you that when we see negative things in others
It is only because we see them in ourselves
People are a mere reflection of how u really see yourself
There will be those who will constantly test you…
That’s okay
It will only make you better
Understand that the light which shines on your face…
With all its warmth and love
Actually came from inside yourself
And always…in all ways KNOW
YOU ARE LOVE…
And I appreciate you all…


​We spend so much of our lives waiting…

Waiting for Mr Mrs Right

Waiting for a promotion

Waiting for our ship to come in

Waiting for the weekend

Waiting for vacation…

How great would it be

If we could find TRUE pleasure in our everyday lives

Find that thing that we can be happy about

Find what moves us daily

Find that the love we have been waiting for

Has always been with us

Find that WE are the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

Find

Learn

Accept That…

You 

Alone

Are

Enough


Ladies…its time to be angry
Men all over FB just logged off…lol
But seriously…
Anger is evoked by true strong emotions
We sit by and talk about everything…
And nothing at all…
We will talk about our sisters hair, nails
That outfit that…
She knew she had no business wearing…lol
And yet NOTHING is said…
IN order to change something…
You must accept it
This is the first step toward humility…
WE are being played…
WE are being used…
BUT…
Not by the men in our lives…
We are being used by a system…
Which is separating us from our DIVINE RIGHTS
You see it is stripping us of our loving tendencies…
This system says…You don’t need him…
You can do bad all by yourself
I can be both mommy AND DADDY
And to help you out in case you get stuck…
There are these great little programs to help you…
The truth is…
Those little programs…are the noose around our necks
Too many times we will turn away from the men in our families…
Im not talking about Joe Trick from down the block…lol
But the REAL men our lives….
And we will turn away from him because
He isn’t educated enough
…even though we are learning that our “Education” is filled with lies
He isn’t working enough
He doesn’t have a good car
The list tends to go on and on…
Relationships do not JUST happen
No one wakes up and just has a dream come true (usually)
We have to work for and toward these goals
We should be angry….
Because we know better than this…
YOU are the foundation in your family
YOU set the tone for your life
YOU balance his energy…
Be angry…
But if you waste that anger on
Who did what to whom
Or
Who owes YOU
You are wasting your energy…
Get angry
SCREAM….
The very system which has created these little programs to HELP you…
Also says…
If YOU are raped…
IT IS ALL….
Now HEAR ME….
This system says it is
ALL YOUR FAULT…
How do you like big brother now?
We are getting ready to show you how very beautiful
ANGRY WOMEN can look…
Because You understand…
WE are (NineTribe)
So
Are
You

Rape


***I am not trying to trigger anyone….

I have been on a few posts about Rape…
There is a very naive part of myself which says…
Everyone knows that rape is a crime…
But what has been demonstrated to me is much more harsh
Rape is not an instance…
It does not just happen
You were selected
Hunted…often
It was narrowed down…
That YOU
Yes YOU
Do not get a choice…
Rape is agonizing
It can destroy your soul
It can create wide awake nightmares
You hear sounds from behind a bush
You hear hushed voices down an isolated alley
You hear your inner voice screaming
PLEASE PLEASE…STOP
It is not just 20 minutes in time, you see
Its every moment in every day that will come thereafter
It is not how many drinks
Or how many times she said no
It is not that sexy dress
Or those “She asked for it stilettos”
Because you see…
Once you become another persons PREY…
You will begin second guessing yourself
Did I say NO loud and often enough?
Did I REALLY want sex?
Was I teasing him?
DID I ASK FOR IT??????

Understand my good friends and family…
Rape never stops…
It is never a single act…
It is a train wreck that happens over and over again…
So until we STOP blaming the survivors….
Be they grown men and women or children…
We will always ONLY be representing the CRIMINALS

Please today…choose to do something different…

Decide


Decide

Things do not just happen

When you are riddled with a headache

When your day just feels heavy

Think back to the energy

Which you entertain

Bad things do not just happen

Set aside the ideas that

You are always sick…

Bad things always happen to you

That you just don’t make enough money…

These are self-proclaimed excuses for what is happening

Think instead…about…

Who you gave your energy to

What did you talk about

What jokes did you laugh at

It is perfectly okay to have a negative thought

It, in fact, is natural…

But did you follow it up with a thought of

Gratitude

Love

Kindness

Consideration?

Think hard about those which we give our attention to

What are they talking about…

And how you responded to them

Did you engage in gossip

Or did you shine light on the conversation

You will be amazed at the people who will not

Engage in negative conversations about others

Once they realize that you won’t play a part in them

Participate in your own life

Things do not just happen

We call to them

You cannot call upon indifference and expect kindness

You cannot conjure up hate and expect to prosper

What you call upon the universe to give you

You most certainly will receive

So be aware of your words

Be thoughtful in your speech

Be loving in even your thoughts

What you produce can be no more than what you are

Never expect a banana to grow on an orange tree

Be the light in which you seek

Be the compassion

Kindness

Empathetic

Loving

Beautiful

Person…that you will search for

Life is not a random series of events

The world is not out to get you

But sometimes you have to look outside of yourself

Detach yourself from your emotions

Think like a God or Goddess

Set aside the ideas of what about me

What do I deserve

When will I get this or that

When will it be my time…

Because my loves…

Your time is NOW…

Conquer your thoughts

And the victory will be yours

Remember that someone somewhere

Is watching …

Wondering why we laughed at their expense

Why our entertainment

Came at such a high price to them…

And for one moment …

Be them…

Embrace your beauty…

Which is held within

And shine your light into the darkness

Participate in your own life

And watch what beauty and love you can create

And it is so simple…

Because you only have to

Decide

How Did YOU Help?


I watched a video recently
It was a little girl who was talking to her brother about his greatness
She was loving and kind…
At one point she says…
You are a star…and you shine
At that moment you saw the dark clouds lift from him
And he develops this most contagious smile
Self love is usually something that we believe we all have
And we should have it…
But too often…
We are looking for someone else to legitimize who we are
We are searching for Mr Right
While we become…Ms. RightNow
Self love is not about an ego out of control
It is about acknowledgement
Its about acceptance
It is about being comfortable in your own skin
NO matter what your skin looks like
And it does NOT mean that you look better than someone else
And everytime I hear that type of chatter
I cannot help but to wonder why a person would have so much self loathing
You see if you are comfortable with who you are…
You would only want the very best for others…
You would smile at their accomplishments…
Not sit around watching for them to fall
Arrogance is not necessary…
If you REALLY understand who YOU are
YOU have your own light
Don’t use it to blind someone …
Use it to guide them…
Don’t use it to point out other peoples flaws
Use it to appreciate the very ALL-ness of them
Learn to love ALL people
Understand that we all have a history…
A story to tell
And just because ours are not the same…
Does not mean that yours is less important than mine
Find forgiveness for yourself…
And when u look at that person
The one who you talk about negatively…
Find yourself in them…
Seek your Creator in all things…
Talk to everyone as if you are praying for yourself
And remember at the end of this life cycle
It is very likely we will be asked
How did YOU help…
I love you all

Less


After my sister passed away
I had to deal with more pain
Than I had ever known
Not physical pain…I had become accustomed to that
But REAL heart break
And almost like a 6 year old
I decided I had dealt with enough…
And i just wasn’t equipped enough
Not strong enough
It was too hard
I literally threw a temper tantrum in my mind
But the thing was…
Whether I was ready or not
Whether it made me sad or not
It was here…
I had no choice
I remember talking to her around New Years Eve…
As I often do…since she passed
Telling her….I hate this
I wanted to see her
To touch her face…
And she said to me…while laughing
Have you ever loved anyone that you couldn’t touch?
Of course…everyone has
She said….do u love them less?
Of course not…but this isn’t the same
I want to be able to see you…
She reminded me that the kind of love we have now
Is the first kind of love we ever felt
Its unconditional…
It is not determined by man
Nor his/her physical needs
She said it will always be here for you
You can never undo it
No matter what choices you make…
I will always have my hands on your shoulders
She reminded me of the way I loved most people I know
And this was it…
Completely…without expectation…
I am thankful for those moments…
It reminded me of where i am supposed to be
Not for others…
But for my ancestors…
Love without expectation…
And you will never be disappointed
I miss you Melissa …
But I am not capable of loving you less….

What About Flint?


I wanted to try and explain what is happening in Flint, Michigan…

TWO years ago…Flint decided to change their water supply
from Lake Huron to the Flint River
Which is odd because the Flint River is known as dirty water
What we have to understand is that at one time Flint was
an industrial town dealing with metal.
Almost immediately people started tasting the water
and realized something wasn’t right
The water even looked dirty…almost muddy looking
The pleas of the people there went unheard
A local pediatrician even spoke to the mayor about the problem
BC the towns children’s lead levels were 3 times higher
than what is acceptable…
And their hair was beginning to fall out and they
began developing skin rashes…
Her pleas…also went unheard
And the government even said she was no being truthful
A research team for Virginia Tech visited Flint
And conducted a study from the people’s homes in Flint
Their findings showed that Flint had high levels of iron in the water supply, but what is worse
The lead levels were were at near toxic levels
Flint still disputed the findings…
But the researchers did not stop
And now we all know about what happened there
And while we appreciate the Governor of Michigan apologizing…
Understand this…
There are precautions that should have been taken…
This did NOT have to happen
It would have cost Michigan only $100 a day to prevent this
By adding anti-corrosives into the water…
And while Flints water supply has been diverted back to Lake Huron…
All of the towns pipes are now corroded with rust and lead…
10 people have died so far…
My question is this…
Why is everyone talking about Jada Pinkett and the Oscars?
Why isn’t everyone running full steam about FLINT?
