The Importance of My Morning Routine

The Importance of My Morning Routine

Honoring my morning routine is one of the most beneficial ways that I practice self-care. As a mom of three children, wife, teacher, business owner, and artist my plate is full. That's cool because I love to eat; however in order to show up and be present for my family, students, and clients, I have to wake up early in the morning before every one else does. If I don't, I find myself irritable within a few hours of waking up. In some seasons I'm super strict about my morning routine. I have to meditate, pray, read, journal, burn sage, light my candles, etc. Other times I may just paint or really focus on a cleaning tasks which are both forms of meditation because I'm able to be present in the moment. Some times I'll wake up and just sit down and talk to God and write the messages that I re...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #11: Rest

Legend has been in the hospital since his surgery on Monday. I've been by his bedside since then with the exception of leaving my husband and oldest son with him to go to the store to get a few things one evening. Neither of us have been getting much sleep, especially since his diagnosis. The nurses and techs have constantly been in and out drawing blood to run more tests trying to slowly bring his electrolyte levels back down. It's been frustrating to say the absolute least. It's been harder on Legend because he's the one that has been having to endure the sticks and pricks. Every time the nurses and techs would get done, I would try to rock him back to sleep and put him in the crib. About 20 minutes later he'd wake up voluntarily or involuntarily because another professional was coming i...

Purging

Last year I packed up a U-haul along with my family and started my whole life over. The life that I had put in work to achieve. I had a great job with salary pay and benefits. I had just earned a promotion and a certificate in Contract Management. I was even winning awards in my professional organization, Toastmasters. Shout out to my time in Toastmasters and all of the amazing people that I met by the way. That experience helped me get back comfortable doing public speaking which also led to me finding my voice again. On top of these things, my husband and I both had cars parked outside of our nice rental home that had more rooms than we needed. Yet still packing up that U-haul was the best decision that we could have ever made. My Higher Self was calling me to do more, calling me to do s...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #10: They That Wait

I had just finished my morning prayer, meditation, and reading. I picked up my phone and had received this encouraging message from a dear friend of mine. She wishes to remain anonymous, however, I will say that she is a devoted wife, mother of two, daughter, sister, and friend. Most of all she loves God and is beautiful both inside and out. I value her insight, plus she gave me permission to share. Here goes: "My son is funny to me. Whenever he wants to watch Sesame Street, he climbs into MY bed, pulls the covers over his legs, and reclines on the pillows. He then says, “I'm ready mommy.” He basically assumes the position and expects mommy to deliver. He’s intelligent because he knows to come to mommy instead of daddy. He knows the position he’s suppose to be in to watch the show. In s...

Ways to Do a Mental Detox

Whenever I would hear someone say anything about detoxing, I would automatically assume that they were referring to a physical detox. They probably were talking about flushing their bodies of toxins by using detox tea, sweating, or whatever their preferred method may have been at the time. While those methods may have produced desired results, physically detoxing isn't the only way to cleanse. Its equally as important to detox our minds as well to ensure that we maintain optimal mental health. Here are some natural ways that have worked for me when it comes to clearing my mind of all of the junk that accumulates over time. Silence Practice sitting in complete silence for at least 10 minutes a day. You can plan this time and set aside a special space or this could mean using your toil...

Benefits of Meditation

Benefits of Meditation

Somewhere in my childhood I adopted the belief that meditation was something mystical and that I should probably stay away from it. Maybe it was my vivid imagination, growing up in churches with strict rules, things I saw on TV, or a combination of the three. Whatever the reason was, I am so glad that I ditched this belief and decided to start practicing meditation two years ago. It changed my life drastically. I also believe that it helped save my life as well considering that before I started I couldn't see the end of my battle with postpartum depression and I had seriously contemplated suicide more than a few times. I'll admit I was a little intimated and felt overwhelmed about the idea of meditation because I didn't know where to start, if I would do it "right", or if I had the proper ...

What if you had enough faith to move mountains What if you believed that you could do anything and that every obstacle is insurmountable What if you were as confident in your ability to succeed as you are in the possibility to fail What if you believed that you could have heaven on earth the same way that you fear being damned to hell What if your next invention catches on like the newly invented light bulb What if you choose to see yourself with the same eyes as the Creator does What if you just turn your light on What if you knew that you've already won Before you took form in your mother's womb What if you stop seeking worldly validation and go and do what you were called to do Go ahead, you got this I promise And if you start doubting yourself look up a...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #9: Greater Pain, Greater Gains

Legend started teething a few weeks ago. It's been a challenge I must say. He's 4 months old but get this, his first teeth that are coming in are his molars. Yes, the big ones that grow in the back. I know I earned my degree in Child Development 4 years ago and I may need an occasional refresh on a few subjects, but this is far from the norm. Honestly speaking though both of my children continue to defy everything I've ever learned in regards to "what's normal for children" so everyday with my crew is an adventure to say the least. This continues to humble me and remind me that I "know" nothing. I'll forever be a student. Anyway, Legend has been in pain. Mixing being a momma with being an empath I've been feeling all of his pain too and it's been hurting me to my core. I had been praying f...

Use What You Got

Where will I get the money to do this? When will I find the time to do it all? How will I get the resources that I need? Do any of these questions sound familiar to you? When God showed me the vision for my life I found myself asking all of the above on several occasions. Sometimes these thoughts creep back up on me when I find myself getting overwhelmed. Then I remember this, God will not give you a vision without providing all you need to bring it into fruition. I know it's not always so easy to just blindly trust when you can't see how things are going to work out, but one thing we can do is use what we have. Last month I really wanted to paint but I didn't have anymore canvases and all of my paint brushes were ruined. I needed to buy more supplies but my budget did not allow for me to...

August is all about authenticity, being who you are unapologetically. That is always enough. Here is an affirmation for this month: Today I am making the choice to honor the Divine by honoring who I truly am. I am accepting that it's okay to be my authentic self. Despite what I've been told or what I've believed about myself in the past, I can be me without conforming to society's expectations. I can reclaim my identity today.

Use Me

There have been seasons of my life where I've been dead set on proving people wrong. During those seasons I was stuck! I now realize that it was my intention that kept me in this sunken place. The energy that births your intention is typically the energy that you see in the results. No longer am I concerned with proving anyone wrong. I'm now committed every day to wake up and prove myself right. I'm dedicated to prove that the Creator was right when choosing me for this assignment and for gifting me with all I need to fulfill it. When I die I want to be able to say that I used every single thing that God gave me from my family all the way to my spiritual and physical gifts. On my dying day I want to be able to hold my hands up saying, "I don't have none left God! It's all gone! I'm tired b...

Affirmations for Giving Birth

The featured image in this post is the journal that I started using the month before Legend was born. It's on top of my painting "rebirth". It was a week before my due date to deliver Legend and no doctor had agreed to deliver him if I didn't agree to have another c-section. Every doctor told me that I wouldn't be able to push and the surgery was my only option. I believed otherwise. I was convinced that I had to deliver Legend vaginally. I believed that I could do it no matter what the circumstances looked like. Jarvis was encouraging me and assuring me that everything would work out. I knew this too but still I was freaking out. We were getting close and I could feel that Legend would be coming soon. Soon Jarvis' words would leave me and I would be left to sit with my own thoughts. I ha...

Provision

While a baby is in the womb, they blindly trust that their mother they've never seen face to face will provide their needs. Why is it so hard for us to trust in our Source to do the same for us? It's difficult to live a life of freedom if living in fear of having your basic needs met. Use this simple affirmation today as you go throughout your day. Use it beyond today and say it as often as you need to until it becomes a part of you. Watch things change.

Black folks don't like therapy Nobody wants to admit That we have issues “Talking out loud to a stranger Is for white folks I'm okay with these meds I got my liquor too” When we begin to have honest and uncomfortable conversations regarding mental health, we can heal. Until then mental health remains a taboo subject as I have commonly seen it in the black community. Until then we are left to guess and wonder about the matter much less normalize healing.

Affirmations for Postpartum Depression

After giving birth, a woman's hormones change altering her emotional state aside from the physical aspects of delivering a life into this world. With my oldest son, I experienced postpartum depression in what seemed like the worst way. It took me almost a year to feel "normal" again. When I got into spiritual healing, I was able to identify some of the root causes of my postpartum depression experience in conjunction with the physical, emotional, and hormonal changes. Some of those were: Fear of embracing change Feeling unworthy Lack of self-care and self love Living in the past Guilt and shame Setting unrealistic expectations This time after giving birth, my mental and emotional health has been just as important if not more important than my physical health. I’m still working...

No One Told Me This About Marriage

Two months after graduating from college I was pregnant, engaged, and living in a new city. I received advice, most of it unsolicited, about what I should not do as a wife. I also heard a bit of the negative sides of marriage. While some of the advice came in handy, no one told me that I would get to fall in love with a new person as we both continued along our journey and evolved. No one told me that it was possible to love a person more and more each day as the years would go by. Luckily, I got to find this out on my own. Jarvis and I celebrated two years of marriage earlier this year and next month will make five years that we've been in a committed relationship. We've watched each other champion through trials and go through changes. We've watched each other grow and evolve into new...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #7: Just Let it Go

On Sunday, I washed Jarvis Jr's hair, dyed it (per his request), combed it out, and gave him some small twist. After completing the lengthy process, I pulled out all of his hair that shed out of the comb. He saw me do this and gave me this look of terror. "Mommy is that my hair? Is my hair coming out?" he asked in almost what seemed a panic. I replied, "No baby. This is just your old hair that shed. You have plenty of new hair that came in, you can't even tell that this is gone." After soothing him, he calmed down and looked in the mirror at his new set of "Uzi's". He refers to his twists as "Uzis" with inspiration from rapper Lil Uzi Vert. He said, "Wow. My hair is super long. I like it." Just that quick it was as if he forgot all about the hair that shed as he smiled in admiration of the...
