How To Manifest

Caption: A list of my goals from 2004.  I am a huge believer in the law of attraction, in energy, and in our ability (in collaboration with the spirit realm) to manifest certain things into our lives. I have been in intense study for the last year or so, learning best practices and the methodology…

Why I Love Crystals…

My grandmother used to live in a housing complex called Holy Temple when I was a little girl. I have such fond memories of living there with my grandmother. What I remember the most was that behind her complex was “the woods” and attached to the facade of the building were these stones that my…

“And as an mc you will study verbal magic But watch what you say ’cause you’ll attract it Control your subconscious magnet from pullin in havoc” – KRS-One Che & I decided to visit the Oriental Institute to check out the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead Exhibit. One of the pillars of our marriage…

4:44 – Another Possible Meaning To Jay-Z’s Album

  4:44 has been in heavy rotation in my speakers! Just when I thought I had it all figured out, I came across this possible meaning of the title of Jay-Z’s new album. I’m not going to lie, initially it went right over my head, but that’s the beauty of good art. I was doing…

It’s Time For Us To Turn Off The Noise & Turn Up (The Frequency)!

I came across the pic on Instagram: I immediately thought of one of my favorite Outkast songs “Slum Beautiful” where they say “Hey girl, what’s your frequency/ and can I come there frequently…” I also thought back to the AAHH! Fest where as the EARLY SHOW stage manager, I had to wear a walkie talkie….

How I Start My Day Off Right…

For the last two weeks I have started reading my bible every single day. If you type in “Youversion” in the App Store, an icon that says “Holy Bible” Pops up and it is made by LifeChurch.tv and filed under reference. The cool thing about the Youversion App is that you can select your translation (in…

We May Never Get What We Want…

First, I have to than my dear friend Lauren for introducing me to the She Reads Truth Devotional Series.  I downloaded the YouVersion bible app and my daily devotional is delivered there right to my phone/iPad. It includes both scripture and a reflection about the scriptures read for today. The app also works like the Kindle App…

Send Lauryn Hill Some Mail in Jail

I’m a huge fan of Lauryn Hill, and have been since I heard her sing as a High School Student. It was Lauryn Hill who gave me the courage to rock my natural hair at the tender age of 17… It was Lauryn Hill whose album title forced me to go read Dr. Carton G….

A Year Is A Marathon… Not A Sprint

I used to run track in High School and as I enjoyed time off from teaching yesterday, I started really thinking about 2013. I love the optimism and the ambitious energy that surrounds the start of the new year. I too have my laundry list of things I’d like to do and accomplish this year….

God’s Sense of Humor…

Every time I change the picture of my desktop to something super cute, dope or inspiring, to no fault of my own it automatically changes back to this: The Mac’s standard desktop photo of the cosmos. I started to get frustrated with this “bug” but then I started thinking, “wait a minute! This is a…

#31 Day Reset Challenge – Identify Your Values

This exercise was difficult because it required me to be totally honest. When looking at my values I hope to move around some of my priorities over the next year, but here they are in order of importance for me right now: 1. Family – particularly my husband, my developing baby and my step-children. 2….
