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 …

My Soul Teacher Lesson #14: Wound Care

Back in March when Legend had his g-button placement surgery we were instructed to clean it once a day and that it would heal in eight weeks. To my dismay when we went to the eight week checkup we learned that granulation (extra tissue) had formed around the site and it didn’t look so great. …

Featured Painting: Visions of Freedom

I AM Mother Earth

I am Mother Earth  Skin smoothly Resembling the dirt  Salt of the land  Slick as sand  Soil thrown   Strength is born  From the dust I emerge  Admire these features  Imperfect symmetry  The laziness in my left eye  Reminds me to embrace my creativity  Slanted eyes that see truth  Small ears  Yet still I hear Spirit  …

The Plug

Purging

Damn Drugs

I wrote this poem almost 2 years ago from a place of anger. I was angry seeing how drugs have and continue to destroy our communities. I was even angrier with the people in my life that use and how their actions effected me and those around them. This poem chilled in my notebook. Out …

Who Do You Think You Are?

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 …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Not On That Couch

When we begin to have honest and uncomfortable conversations regarding mental health we can heal individually and collectively. 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.
