Blood Power

The guides will, at times, leave you to handle it yourself

They know what you can withstand because your blood is theirs too.

Keep pouring into yourself.

Love the earth by loving yourself

Self-care is in fact a selfless act that benefits the earth as a whole.

Earth is always grateful for one less destructive person.

 

#April2020

The truth doesn’t have to hurt

Facts are facts, but they can still be delivered with some empathy.

Avoid being careless in how you relay the truth.

 

#April2020

Love wins

Love is always the better intention to hold.

Prayer birthed you

Your name is the first prayer that was said upon your life

The first spell that was cast upon you

The first potion that your soul sipped

Boundaries

People shouldn’t have the freedom to break in and out of you.

Have rules about you.

Have locks.

What really hurts

It’s not the truth that hurts,
it’s the fall of the lie

Committed

And sometimes you’re scared. Not because you’re a coward or lack faith,but because its a language for just how much your heart is in it.

 

#June2019

Let the ugly be

Don’t resist feeling the ugly stuff. Just don’t let them be you. Watch them. Tell them you see them.

In all of that,don’t allow them to sneak into your identity.

You don’t have to become what you feel.

 

#June2019

Listen

Don’t underestimate the healing power of your ear.

 

#June2019

Silence is also heard

Watch what you say in your heart as equally as what you say with your mouth.

Keeping it real

Are you really being humble, or are you just performing it?

Think about that.
Feel about that.

 

#June2019

The strength of weakness

There is power in admitting that you’re scared,angry and weak.
There is a strength in looking at those things and saying “this what I currently am,” so that the sun, our biggest star, knows where to bring its light and warmth.

Necessary death

Thank God I died

Navigating feelings

Don’t resist feeling the ugly stuff, just don’t let them be you.
Watch them. Tell them you see them.
In all of that,don’t allow them to sneak into your identity.

You don’t have to become what you feel.

The promise

Even when there is a crescent moon in the sky,the shadow of the full moon sits on top of it.
A promise of light that will come.

 

#May2019

Light is always somewhere

The sun shines during the day.
The moon and the stars shine during the night.
God has ensured we are NEVER without light.

Light is the natural state of life.

Light is the natural state of you and me.

 

#May2019

Be present

Let every single moment have its single moment.

Language

My favourite languages in no particular order:

1) Energy
2) Dreams
3) Intuition
4) Magic (Often labeled as co-incidence)
5) Silence
6) Music

 

#April2019

No bad days

Every single day is pure, beautiful and created purposely for you. Don’t let polluting energies distract you from that truth.

The day rises to be on your side. It is never the enemy.

Divine memory

I’m ready to remember, and do, everything that I promised to the universe lifetimes ago.

 

#April2019

Clipped wings

Maybe the real reason we don’t fly is because the world’s things weigh us down.
Maybe it’s not because we can’t, it’s just that we became THAT heavy.

Contrary

Healers can be broken too. Be gentle around their well hidden wounds.

 

#April2019

Love language

If you see me rushing, love me enough to remind me to slow down.

 

#April2019

Respect the energy of another

You don’t just walk into meetings, tests and presentations mindlessly;
don’t walk into conversations soullessly either.

 

#April2019

The favor of grace

Just one hour of grace can change your whole lifetime.

The write to life

I came into this world to leave words all over the place.

Everywhere.

Anywhere.

Anytime.

Pain

So that’s what pain is?
A massive square box that’s stuck inside a narrow throat?
Letting in just enough air for one to remain alive to feel it?
While also leaving enough out so one still suffocates?

Oh.

Life flows from treated wounds.

Biography

You are the most beautiful thing that you will ever experience.

 

#March2019

I mean?

How do you expect to experience magic when you keep rejecting the things that don’t look like your idea of normal?

Forever dying

If you last saw me even so much as an hour ago, then you haven’t seen me in a while.
That girl has died already.
I’m brand new already.

This is the pattern. Everyday. Constant death to remain constantly alive.

Constantly a right now.

The child will always be

Thank God I am a child.

Always new.
Always learning and growing.
Always falling to remember how to stand again.
Always something that can be more.
Always not knowing enough.
Always wondering.
Always held.

I am a child; therefore eternal.

Tree body

Alot of things are going to attempt to shake your beliefs. Be grounded like a tree.

You must have seen how trees stand through a gust of wind and other threatening weather. Be that. Stand in you.

But also remember that a tree sheds its leaves too,as firm as it may stand. Make room for parts of you to be shed where necessary.

But stand while shedding. Still.

Always stand in you. Still.

God is as big as you allow.

Meditation is a lifestyle

Try to expand your perspective and idea of what meditation is. It’s really any act of stillness and awareness that makes room for your peace.
You don’t only have to be sitting on the floor with your legs crossed, eyes closed, spine straightened, and arms stretched out to be in a state of meditation. You can incorporate it in your daily activities.
Every time you watch yourself doing anything, and consciously choose to behave in a way that will preserve you, you are meditating.

You are meditating when choosing to be present and compassionate in conversation with another person. You are meditating when choosing to do your work in way that is true to you. You are meditating every time you take the time to sit down and enjoy a meal that is of nutritional value to your body. Even your approach in a disagreement can involve meditation in that very moment. The list is endless.

In all these situations you are embracing life, inviting peace into your space and existing from a place of love. You are also taking care of yourself and the rest of the universe.

Meditation is a vast form of love that anyone can practice in any way and at anytime. Just choose it

Wait,but…

It gets weird when the woke ones seem to be in competition about who is more woke, or whose wokeness is more valid.

Dream destination

When you pull away from the things of the world, there’s only one place left to go into.

Yourself.

 

#March2019

Self preservation

But what you will not do is kill me to keep yourself alive;
or erase me to make yourself visible.

Manifest without trying to take my breath.

Exist fairly here. With me.

Basic survival

Oh, and if you can…

let people breathe around you
move by you
blossom in your presence
receive light from you
display all that they are before you,

if you can.
