Do something spontaneous!

"You can't outwit fate by trying to stand on the sidelines and place little side bets about the outcome of life. Either you wade in and risk everything to play the game, or you don't play at all. And if you don't play, you can't win." --Judith McNaught

I was asked to do a talk at a school on Thursday, I was really looking forward to it! Woke up on Thursday and I was feeling pretty ill! I can't remember the last time I was ill! I thought ok maybe it was something I ate! I will still drive down and do my thing! By the time I got there I swore I had fever, sore throat the works! I did the talk and it was so much fun! It actually made me feel better for that time but as I was done and sat down I started feeling ruff again so I made my apologies and left drove straight home and went to my bed, later that night a friend of mine, Erica, an angel on earth! Passed by with a box of organic produce and in there was coconut water and citrus! perfect!!! (told you she was an angel!) Anyways we agreed to meet on Friday for lunch, I told her no matter how I felt I was going to come! I am so glad I went,great to have lunch with her and after lunch we met another friend and  headed to the San Fernando Hill Park to watch a movie outside. lovely venue and lovely lime! I went home and straight to bed but that outing made me feel so connected despite my feeling ill!!
Do something spontaneous today!

Love ma peeps! Love the Life and the Universe's shenanigans!

Excerpt from upcoming book..

Excerpt from Nyabo Why are you here? 

Coming soon...

Affirmation: I am safe, it is only change
Journal Entry 22  I had to bend down to enter the hut! Thatched roof and no door, this one was surrounded by four other huts in a circle. I entered, it disoriented me and I stumbled, it was dark, although the sun was shining brightly outside, the inside of the hut was cool. I stood crouched and I bet I looked really awkward. I just stood there! Walked a few meters and we were standing tall together!
There was nothing on the inside but a hand woven mat. I felt a little embarrassed to ask if this was all in the hut, she seemed proud to show me her spot, her crib!
“Madam, I live here, this is all for me.”
I smiled.
We  them went outside, I stood up straight and I followed her.
She showed me the kitchen hut and the “hang out” hut. There were separate huts for the kitchen and to chill out, maybe have some tea and talk. We sat outside and drank a warm coke, they call it soda!
 I asked her about school and life she told me her vision is for her children to have an education and her life is being used for that purpose, she  told me that she was  “very OK” with her choice.
 She asked me about my life and all I said was that my life is ok!  
“Madam that’s sad, I am sad for you that your life is just OK.”

I thought about it for a moment and told her you are right if all I can tell you about my life is that it’s OK then that’s pretty darn sad isn't it?

If you are sure then......

Before you choose to do anything, ask me if your choice is in accord with mine. If you are sure that it is, there will be no fear. A Course in Miracles ACIM (one of my favorite things ever!) 

What did I learn today?

.......that nothing has to happen immediately, this minute,
or "right now."

It's okay to pause for just a moment. Just take a breath.
Then go quietly inside. Ask Life Itself to lead you to
your best outcome.

There's nothing you have to do, really, except get out
of your own way.

... know what I mean?

Act like you have learned what you have learned

Share what you just got with others. Danielle La Porte

This is some advice that I will always cherish! I have it on my bookshelf out of plain sight (can you imagine???) anyways, this morning I was looking for something and it popped out, just how the Universe works! It always brings tears to my eyes every time I read it because this was not even prompted, I didn't even ask a question and boom! Straight at me with so much love and concern for me I was dripping with gratitude! I listened, walked away and wrote it down right away- what I remembered and then I just cried when I read it as I felt an so  blessed! I can't even begin to explain....... I'm sharing it,

“Akosua, remember these lessons – you must integrate and use what you know, you must act like you have learned what you have learned! Love the messages, even if the messages are about you, as you love them more, your sense of vulnerability and resistance surrounding them will decrease. As you love every aspect of your journey, you will be inclined to both value and share it more! Life is indeed good all the time. Move beyond the stories you have made up in your head, half of which aren’t true, move beyond giving a damn about what others say and think about what you are doing.
Now is the time to get focused.
Now is the time to get organized.
Keep visioning yourself as organised and the transition will not be so traumatic.
Let go,
Let go,
Let it go,
Let it  go,
Let IT GO,
Most of the "clutter", you don’t need- LET IT GO!
You need space to think, to feel, to spread out!
Do not retreat back into your shell
I am pleased to see that you are finally motivated!
Now go,
Just do it!”

The Universe just wants a YES!

"You have sole ownership of your vision. And the Universe will give you what you want within your vision. What happens with most people is that they muddy their vision with “reality”. Their vision becomes full of not only what they want but what everybody else thinks about what they want, too. Your work is to clarify and purify your vision so that the vibration that you are offering can then be answered."

- Esther Hicks (Love this lady's work!)

The Universe just wants a YES! Pay attention to how  much of your words, thoughts and actions have the energy of NO!
No, I don’t want to do this job anymore!
No I don’t want to procrastinate anymore!
No, I don’t want this type of relationship anymore!
No, I don’t want to be here doing this!
Everything you want is on the other side of the No!
What’s the YES? What’s your YES?
Not waiting for the Yes to show up, standing in it, standing in the YES, it’s already there! Let it come through you.
Flip it! Flip the words, thoughts and actions, flip it to what the yes is and watch the magic happen!
 start with Yes!

Everything is just in my mind

Excuse me if I sing
My heart has found its wings, ohh yes
Searchin' high and low
And now at last I know
Mornin' Mr. Golden Gate
I should walk but I can't wait
I can't wait to set it straight
I was shakin' but now I am
Makin' it fine
Here in my mind

Al Jarreau!

Everything is just fine.... here in my mind! I love this song, it is one of my favorites I play it almost every daily before I go out to do any event or talk!

Once my mind is fine, hey what else matters? I realise I used to torture myself with "stories" about what if's but they were really only "stories" so I sing "everything here is just fine, here in my mind" and I rock out with that! I wanted to ask a friend of mine a question for a week, procrastinating all the time, why? fear of course and making up stories! I sat there thinking, ok just do it, it's all good! I popped on ole Al Jarreau belting out everything is just my mind and boom!!! done it, and guess what? It still is all good!

What questions are you avoiding asking? Maybe Al can help!! Do what you need to because... you can make it all your mind!

Small Daily actions..

 A big, luscious life comes from small, daily actions Danielle La Porte

Every single day do something that brings you joy or puts a smile on your face and soon enough you will see a difference! Some small thing, just for you, just for you to smile and feel joy and happiness
But then, do you know what brings you joy?
Do you know what makes you smile, that you can do without validation or prodding from anyone else?
Write a list to remind yourself and when you want a smile go back and check it!
Go for the joy...

Feel the fear and do it anyway...

Reality is never frightening. It is impossible that it could upset me. Reality brings only perfect peace. ACIM 

Today I had to speak in front of 250 teenagers! That scared the brown out of me! trust me!
Turned out, that when I face my fear it really isn't all that bad! Made me wonder, what else am I running from because of fear!

Truth be told, when they asked me to talk I swore I heard 25 participants! When I got there it was like whoaaa! where did all of these people from from? They told me this is who you will be speaking to today! Oh! I see! Too late to run! I did it I was happy and they were happy! And I got a free ticket to a party tomorrow! All's well that ends well!!

Do it, do the thing you fear to do, trust me it's not all that bad! In fact, its all good!

Thank you Penal

Responsibility. What does responsibility mean? Responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for your situation, including yourself. Having accepted this circumstance, this event, this problem, responsibility then means the ability to have a creative response to the situation as it is now. All problems contain the seeds of opportunity, and this awareness allows you to take the moment and transform it to a better situation or thing.  Deepak Chopra

The NiNa Programme in Penal is really dear to my heart, all the areas are, but with Penal, it gives me even more of a lift. Despite all the odds and limited resources they make a huge effort
I want to salute them today
Yesterday there were road blocks and protests, yet they were there! There have been thefts and break ins yet they are there! I really learn about persistence and using what I have to get what I want when I am with this team! So so blessed and grateful!

Thank you Penal!
