I am at Peace ...

I feel at Peace ...
When I declare it to be so
When I re-member the truth
When I surrender to the thing that I am clenching and open myself up to abundance
When I offer no sorries for the powerful woman I am
When I plunge into God's word and backstroke in the stillness of faith
When I feast on the favor of my past
When I turn inward to the boundless space where I am one with God
When there is harmony in our heart songs
When I disappear into non-sense and stop thinking
When I am satisfied with prosperity
When I command my ego
When I smother guilt with my freedom cape
When I live in boldness, humility, audacity & favor ...

So Glad I Waited

My best friend gets on me constantly about procrastinating-it's a pet peeve of hers and an absolute turn-off.

We both spend time deliberating and contemplating ideas be fore making decisions and acting on them, its just that she acts on things in half the time I do. Where we differ is the time between the decision and the action.

I wait sometimes and other times I procrastinate. When I wait because I'm led to be patient, trust God, process and be processed, I am guaranteed favorable results. When I procrastinate, the favorable results are very often delayed by me having to catch up or fix something . When I procrastinate, I'm in a place of fear (which causes the stagnation) and am lacking in self-worth (because I deny myself the success of action). While I am waiting I am in action on the preparation for the manifestation of what I want. It is a posture of expectation AND action.

There are so many times that I waited instead of taking immediate action and I was blessed beyond anything I could imagine. During that time that I waited, I was being processed and prepared for a specific outcome. While I was waiting faithfully and patiently, my perspective, temperament, circumstances were changing around me. Those things were all working together toward my outcome. An outcome that was only possible through the passing of time.

What If Compassion was Contagious?

When I am compassionate with myself I am more likely to love others without conditions. It frees me to see them through a human lens and not a lens of expectations, should's, and ought to's. It recognizes that I am not perfect and neither are the people that I am in relationship with. There is a liberty in these relationships that allows us to take risks, make mistakes, learn and grow together.

What of your compassion was contagious? What if what you offered yourself could spill over to others. What would your relationships be like? Would you be free to express yourself honestly? And if you were honestly self expressed, what else would be possible?

Give it a try...start giving yourself the benefit of the doubt, start forgiving yourself for the thoughts that you think and the words that you speak about yourself, start loving you today and see how that spills over to everyone you come in contact with.
I feel a brighter day and lighter me already.

Peace and ... Bliss

The Windows of Heaven

Today I choose to be present to the many ways that I show up in the world and to be grateful for them! This is just the tip of the iceberg.

I am grateful for my bright smile
I am grateful for my optimism and believe that good is always present and always headed my way
I am grateful for friends and family that are ever present and accepting
I am grateful for my life and a renewed mind
I am grateful for being able to remember good times and basking in my senses
I am grateful that God has gifted me his peace and that I share that peace with you
I am grateful for balance and increase in all areas of my life
I am grateful for hope and action
I am grateful for you
I am grateful for LOVE - its everywhere I am!!!!

Did you know that when you express a feeling, you amplify it? What are you grateful for?
What do you choose to attend to today?

What If We Were Soulmates?

What if we were waiting on one another?
What if my change affected and catalyzed your change?
What if your step led to my step?

I believe that we have met each other where we are. We are both at the same level. When I rise, you rise. Like water meeting itself; we’ll find each other. Our connection, our soul-tie, is so powerful that one of us taking a step forward, advances the other.

So today, I make a step – one step closer to my destiny 
and with that step I forward me AND you. 

Today, I take one step closer to you and your dream. 

Today, I take a step because I cannot imagine
that my staying here can keep you stuck, too.

Today, I take a step because I have the audacity to believe that my success propels you
and me and you and me and you and me and
me and you and me and you and … we

Do you have soulmates? 
Are there people in your life that you are soul-tied to? Perhaps it is a family member, a friend, a lover, a clan … your relationship has a greater meaning than what lies at the surface. In fact, the power that lies in your relationship and connection to your soulmates is that when you become more of who you are; when you become courageous, powerful, loving, giving, joyous, energetic, supportive, engaging, forgiving … you showcase what’s available and give your soulmates the opportunity to try it on, too.

What is a step that you can take, today, to further yourself and your soulmates?

My step, today, was writing this. I know that I have soulmates out there that need to get the words and ideas that they have in their minds out and on paper or screen. I know that my step, this step, will advance them and their step will lead me to take a step and so on and so on … pretty soon, you’ll be reading the books or blogs or articles that this step helped to catalyze.

This is dedicated to my Soulmates:
Adebayo Adelekan, Dyon T. Rozier, Robin St. Clair, The Fastgirls,
The July Advanced Momentum Team, The ReBirth Yourself SISTA-hood
