The Gift

A few weeks ago I went to the post office with a lot of packages to ship out from orders from my online shop. I had so many that I had to put them in a bag to hold them all. The line was long and I was waiting for what seemed like forever. I could have easily complained about the time that it took to get to the front of the line but instead I thought of the days when I prayed to have multiple orders to ship. Same with now. I can either complain about having more time at home or be grateful for more time with my family, more time to take care of my mental health, and more time to tune in to my gifts. When I choose the latter and shift to a place of gratitude, I am able to see the gift in everything. By the time that I got to the front of the line I asked to buy 20 stamps. I wanted them to ...

Better Together

Jarvis and I went on a date this weekend; not just any date, we went to Walmart. We had a gracious offer for baby sitting our three children and an opportunity to get out for a few hours. Instead we both fell asleep taking mid day naps that we seldom get to do. We woke up and realized that we didn’t have enough time left to go “out” and that we still needed to make our store run for the week. We decided to turn our store run into a date. I was excited considering the fact I missed my man. Yeah we spend time together every day but that time is shared between Jarvis Jr., Legend, Freedom, and the 164 students that I still think about when I clock out and go home in the evenings. As we were heading out to the store, Jarvis said something to me like, “I’m good with whatever we do as long as I’m...

Abundant April

Spring is here, my favorite time of the year! I'm excited about this new month, "Abundant April" and all of the possibilities and opportunities that it holds. I can feel this powerful new moon in Aries in full effect and I'm taking full advantage of the productive and creative energies that it is bringing. The past 6 months have been challenging for me with learning of my new pregnancy, reality setting in that I would soon be a mother of 2 under age 2, my baby boy's recent diagnosis of a life threatening illness, having to rebuild myself once again after another battle with depression, and just trying to create balance while staying on top of things. While challenging it has been, my faith has also grown. I've become stronger, I've learned to ask for and receive help, and I've become a bet...

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...

The Rainbow

It's been raining off and on way more than usual here lately. My old self always hated rainy days for many reasons. I wouldn't so much as step outside for fresh air let alone go anywhere. Before I shaved my hair off, getting my hair wet was a no. Correction it was a hell no and that was for my permed hair and my natural hair. I would also sleep late and procrastinate when it came to doing anything productive. Now having a greater sense of awareness, I know the reason that I'm more affected by rainy weather is because I'm an empath. I feel everything. I feel the hurt and the sorrow the rain washes away. I feel the procrastination, laziness, and sadness that others have too regarding rainy days. Now that I know this, I use rainy days to heal. I use them to cry. I use them to wash away the so...

Authenticity All August

Authenticity All August

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. I can believe that I am beautiful on the inside and on the outside. No matter what has happened to me, I can heal and transform. I am owning my power.

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 #5: But It’s Necessary

I started tummy time with Legend when he was a little over 2 weeks. He’s now 2 months. He absolutely hated it then and he still does now. He grunts, groans, and kicks his legs in agony when he realizes that he's not able to move as freely as he can when he's on his back. Being an empath, I feel sad with him but I have to allow him to go through this experience. It's necessary for his growth and development although it's uncomfortable. Getting his neck strong is necessary for him to gain independence and develop his gross motor skills. As a result of tummy time, he’s already able to hold his head up for short periods of time and roll over. He doesn't understand yet how what seemed painful was actually strengthening him and preparing him for the next level. But you know hindsight is 20/20. T...

Affirmations for Self Love

Why is it easier to be more kind to others than we are to ourselves? Something to ponder and do some soul searching with if you may. The most important human relationship is the one that we have with self. We owe it to ourselves to shower self with love. We can't give anyone else that responsibility especially if we aren't giving it to ourselves. Here are some affirmations for self love. I see the beauty in my flaws. They help me with self healing and taking steps towards wholeness. I accept myself as is. I am committed to improving in the areas that I see fit with grace and patience. At every given moment I am doing my best and that is always enough. I am worthy. It's okay for me to simply be. I am extending compassion towards myself. I treat myself with kindness, love, and underst...

We are One

A few days ago I observed five children outside playing. There was a black girl, a white girl, a white boy, and a Hispanic girl. I could be wrong but the fifth girl had brown skin and may have been of Middle Eastern decent. I watched as they played together in harmony. I could not hear their conversation but if I had to guess, they were not arguing over their parent's political party of choice, their particular religious affiliations, their different ethnic backgrounds, their socioeconomic status, or anything else that divides us. They were simply playing, smiling, and being free. What if we could be more like the children? What if we could simply coexist, respect, and love one another despite our differences? What if we realized that there is more that connects us than divides us? We are ...

Joy Really Does Come in the Morning

I really know what it means now when they said "Joy comes in the morning." I feel that in my bones on a new level. I'm not talking about the fake a smile, tell everyone its okay, and avoid my truth kind of joy. But the I went through something and I grew though something kind of joy. The kind of joy that I can now experience after appreciating "Purpose in the Pain" and accepting that "After the Pain Comes Power". This past week was challenging for me but I continued to fight. I love the human experience. It has this way of humbling you and fortifying you all at the same time. I'm grateful that the Creator's plan is perfect.

Turn Your Light On

A friend gave us this cool lamp with a dimmer on it. I was eager to plug it up in our bedroom only to find out that it would not turn on. I got upset and didn't try to turn it on anymore that day. Days passed and I continued to try to get the light to work. I soon accepted that the lamp was broken. Almost four weeks later Spirit said, "Try the other plug", as I was passing by the lamp. I tried the plug directly underneath the one that I had tried before. The light came on! I got hype and screamed waking my husband up. The whole time I had been trying to get the light to work on my own when all I needed to do was utilize the correct plug. Often we give way to ego and become dependent solely on self. Ego influences you to try and take on life by yourself making your experiences more compl...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #3: More Gratitude, Less Stress

My oldest shouted, "Mommy I want some breakfast." "What do you want?" I asked. He answered with, "Just some plain toast." While I was preparing the toast, he kept asking if the toast was ready. I urged him to wait a few more minutes. He began growing impatient and I began to get slightly annoyed. After I put his toast on a plate and broke it up into small pieces, I grabbed an apple to cut for myself. Mid slice he walked over and said, "That's a big apple. I want some. The whole thing." I looked over, saw that he had not touched his toast yet, and responded, "Eat what you just asked for and then you can have your own apple. " Then came the drama, "No! No! No! I can't want that toast anymore! I want some apple!" He stomped his feet, folded his arms, frowned, and gave a whole performance. Bec...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #2: Get Free

My husband was holding our baby boy a few days ago and he made the observation, "He still hasn't stretched his legs all the way out." My husband tried to hold baby boy away from his body to help him stretch his legs out. His legs stretched a little but quickly curled back up. My baby's legs had been curled since he began to outgrow my womb. This limited the movements that he could make signaling that his days were coming to an end in the womb and he would soon be entering the physical realm. Now that he's out of the small space in my womb, he has plenty of room to stretch and experience new levels of freedom. Yet he's still comfortable curling his legs in and bending his knees. After observing and taking these moments in, I gained clarity on what I needed to receive.  My baby had grown ...

Don’t Resist, Just Shift!

What do seasons, temperature, technology, and time have in common? The answer is they all change. Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher of the 6th century, coined the phrase, "change is the only constant in life" that is commonly referenced today. We've all heard this saying more than once or twice, but what does it actually mean? Every day, every hour, every minute, every second the world is physically revolving or rotating on an axis. As our planet revolves, it along with the inhabitants also evolves. Webster defines evolving as gradually developing or growing. With the process of evolution, our thought forms change as well as our physical appearances, surroundings, habits, and our needs. Our families change, we change our minds several times a day, and our schedules often change too. It seems...
