Clarity, focus and consistent action!

Without Asking, You Will Receive No Answer. Abraham and Esther Hicks




A very important teacher of mine asked me " What do you want? What is it you really want?"

I said " I want to be happy"

"OK and what does that mean"

" You don't know what happiness means?"

" Do you?"

I had my usual smile on my face but thinking , where is she taking this?

" I do"

"So tell me, what does happiness look like?"

" Like happiness"

" If you don't know what you want then how will you know when you get it?"

" I will just know"

"Hmm, listen to me, be specific, know what you want, how it will feel, how you will feel. the whole evasiveness is a pack of fear running around"

"I'm telling you this, clarity, focus and CONSISTENT action"

I went away and thought about it all day! Clarity! I don't need to know the how, just be clear, then move in the direction. Hmmmm
What is it that I …

Commitment Declaration

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: ‘Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it./ Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.’ Begin it now.”
~W.H. Murray
Guess what I did today? I created a commitment declaration to myself and committed to doing things to allow my personal power to shine through!  It's simpler than it sounds, personal power means using the God given abilities a…

How does free look on you?

Freedom is a state of mind.  It is the outgrowth of our willingness to make conscious choices of our own free will and to live through the consequences of our choices without blame, shame, or guilt.  Freedom is a sign of self-awareness.  When you are aware of what it takes to maintain your mental, emotional, and physical well-being and you make conscious choices toward that goal, you are exercising your freedom.Freedom is the recognition of the truth. Inner Visions Worldwide

It's always a wake up call when a friend gives you it "On the real" it's even better when its honest and from the heart.
The conversation or exchange sometimes gives you the permission to be free. I'm not saying that we need permission to be free but that it somehow jolts you or gently prods you into the realization that "hey, I'm free, why do I act like I'm in a cage or a box or in fear?"

Okay, confessions on the journey, I have been holding back, for real, I take two steps…

Fellas....

What's real is real no matter what I do. The sun doesn't go out when I cover my eyes. ACIM

Fellas/Guys/ Men remain a mystery to me. I feel like a super hero with anything else,bring it on, I'm all in but with guys this is where my I have learnt lessons are still repeating many of the classes. I absolutely thank them for it, I've turned it into a feeling of gratitude! Although I must say that many times I am tempted to remain in my cave to avoid the lessons but You cannot teach what you have not learned, and what you teach you strengthen in yourself because you are sharing it. Every lesson you teach you are learning.

 I also wish to say out loud though:

Fellas.....

1. A good woman is your biggest cheerleader and fan! Supporting you to the end and back and then some! Even if it sounds as if we are nagging you or being hard on you, it is all in the name of love and ultimately to be the one who stands with you as you move to your highest high! We want you to be the bestes…

You're chasing the feeling

An attachment is something we have a strong emotional connection to that has nothing to do with our survival or even our truth. We may think releasing this attachment will destroy us....but will it really? Releasing our attachments may create change, but it can not destroy us, nothing can! We are Eternal Spirit.
Our attachments are always based on fear. We stay attached to a job, a belief system, a relationship, a city, behavioral patterns, addictions or negative mental thought processes ~ that no longer serves us ~ because we are afraid of the unknown, the what if's... and we don't want to step out of our comfort zones. Sabrina Reber
What do you want and why?  How do you want to feel?
Why do you want the relationship?
Why do you want the house?
Why do you want the money and the job?
Why do you want to date that guy or girl?
Why do you want those designer clothes?
Why do you want that holiday trip?
Why do you want that piece of chocolate?
Why do you want to be seen at this even…

Stay Relevant

learning is invisible and what has been learned can be recognized only by its results. (ACIM)  I Absolutely love the Course in Miracles!!!

 "Stay Relevant" - What a small statement with a whole lot of weight! Someone, a friend that I appreciate immensely, mentioned this to me on Thursday.
 I thought hmmm "stay relevant"  this can be applied to all relationships, work, personal, career, you name it! It can be applied to companies as well. Powerful indeed.
I appreciated this piece of advice and resonated with me. Many companies have gone out of business because they did not stay relevant. The CD Walkman, the VCR, the mainframe computer and I can go on, were no longer relevant and are now resigned to the irrelevant dustbin!
What about relationships? Are you remaining relevant in your relationships?

So, how do I stay relevant? I believe authenticity and a sense of purpose plays a huge role in this. the urban way might say it like "What you for?"  or " Wh…

Boundaries emerge from within

“Boundaries emerge from deep within. They are connected to letting go of guilt and shame, and to changing our beliefs about what we deserve. As our thinking about this becomes clearer, so will our boundaries. Boundaries are also connected to a Higher Timing than our own. We’ll set a limit when we’re ready, and not a moment before. So will others. There’s something magical about reaching that point of becoming ready to set a limit. We know we mean what we say; others take us seriously too. Things change, not because we’re controlling others, but because we’ve changed.”Melody Beatie



I was telling a friend this week that there are many many times that I feel unstoppable, like I can do anything, feel the fear and jump in! On those days the Universe tests me in many ways like in December when I had to climb up some rocks to get to a destination in El Salvador. There was no other way! And I said hey, let's do this! I'm all in. There are other times when I have to speak to a crowd an…

Almost there is a dangerous place to be

You will never fully be who you are or express your truth unless you can love yourself and accept yourself unconditionally. Most of us come from cultures and societies that do not promote, or even support, self-love and we often feel judged if we love ourselves, value ourselves or put ourselves first. Anita Morjani

My desire for the rest of my life starting in 2015 is to use the power downloaded into my being as a force to serve! What does that mean? To tap into my personal power which comprises of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual parts of me which contributes to the highest version of me that I can share with the world. I have been disciplined and resolute in my conviction for the past 45 days and what I learnt is that things will come up to test you when you are on the path, when you are "almost there"  Iyanla Vanzant sums it up nicely she says "Almost There Is A Dangerous Place To Be." At the beginning of the journey, you lose nothing by changing your mind …

Are you trippin?

Do not jump to conclusions, you may be wrong! Iyanla Vanzant

Trippin'! Do you know what trippin' is?  The urban dictionary  defines it as "When someone is overreacting or getting all bent out of shape over something small."  

I have been trippin' over the past few days and working myself up! It hasn't been pretty! So here's the deal, there is no fear, none! The things that we work ourselves up over are part of the journey, a message, a passing cloud. We hold on to it and terrorize ourselves for no good reason! 

A very powerful affirmation is "So what?" and really, so what? Half of the things we trip over aren't real and the other half is to make you pay attention to what is!

So according to Jill Scott "Let me stop all this trippin..... and listen"

Peace!



The Universe always answers your questions

The Universe will answer any question that you ask so if you ask a low level question you will receive a low level dis empowering answer. Like why me? What’s wrong? Who’s to blame? Those are dis empowering questions, but if you ask How does the Universe see itself living my life? What is the next stage of my evolution? What’s starting to emerge as a gift of my being? What is God’s idea of my life? What must I become in order to manifest this vision that  I am beginning to articulate? What gifts do I already have that can be of service to this vision? What do I need to let go of? Michael Bernard Beckwith


Full speed ahead on the finishing touches of the book!  Last night as I was making some final adjustments I couldn't help but think that it holds true that when you declare your intentions and goals to the Universe and make the steps to do the work magic happens!

My friend Keisha offered to help me and made good on her promise an took her entire weekends to work on this, my cousin …

Lessons and more lessons

When there is acceptance, judgment no longer has any power. Panache Desai


I have been learning tons of lessons over the past few days! Life is full of surprises and possibilities. I strongly believe that the Universe is an infinite opportunity machine., To tap into it we must go "there", where we put the work in and ask the right questions.
I wake up everyday and know that my life as it stands now is a gift and that everyday brings with it so many surprises! Life is delighted to surprise me and now I am pretty comfortable with every surprise This is what I have been practicing over the past week, watching the feelings that I have pass through me rather than holding on to them and judging them. I embrace it, feel it and then let it go.Let me tell you, it is one of the best things I have decided to do.
This morning a good friend of mine called me and we were chatting and I asked about another friend and she started crying uncontrollably! I was stunned at her response! She gave…

You're not lazy

You’re not lazy; you’re afraidWhen you stall.
When you procrastinate.
When you make two steps of progress and then five steps back.
When you lie about your progress.
When you don’t tell anyone of your plans so that you’ll never need to lie about your progress.
When you tell everyone of your plans so that you’ll be accountable, and it totally backfires.
When you sit down with your lucky pencil and a perfectly quiet work environment and then suddenly it’s all too quiet and you just gotta get out of there and go to the coffee shop but then at the coffee shop you can’t fucking concentrate.
When all of those things happen, you’re not lazy. You’re afraid.
Hopefully, you’re not too afraid to decide that today’s the day you’re going to…deal with it. Even if it scares the bejeesus out of you to make even one step in the direction of your soul’s calling, that’s exactly what it looks like to work with and through your fear. That’s exactly what it looks like to be with it.

An Aha Moment

We hold on. Because Love does that. Embracing, rocking, reserving space. Love holds, it treasures, it tucks away for safe keeping, it loyally protects. Holding on is one of the many great powers of Love.
And it feels so good to hold on that sometimes we forget to look at what we’re holding on to. Danielle LaPorte



I'm reading Micheal Singer's work right now and having multiple Aha moments! Just yesterday I was at the bank, the line was long and luckily I had the book with me I started reading it while waiting to be attended to and the Aha moments were so strong I did not even realize that I was talking loud! I shouted out" OMG this is super stuff!" There were some eyes on me! I chuckled
But needless to say I wanted to share a snippet with you, maybe it can speak to you or even someone you know

" If you are doing something to avoid pain then pain is running your life. If you are afraid of being rejected by someone you approach and you approach that person with the …

What are you thinking?

Your point of attraction is caused by your thoughts. The way you feel is caused by the thoughts you are thinking. So the way you feel about yourself is your strong and powerful magnetic point of attraction. When you think and feel poor, you cannot attract prosperity. When you think and feel fat, you cannot become thin. When you feel lonely, you cannot attract companionship. - - this level of thinking defies the Law of Attraction. You cannot and will not attract what you do not and cannot hold positively and powerfully in thought. When you can only see what is, you will attract more of what is. You must be able to put your thoughts beyond what is in order to attract something different, something more. Esther and Jerry Hicks


What have I been thinking about? Do you know how I know, apart from asking myself? I look at what is happening and manifesting itself in my own life! Why? Because believe it or not, my thoughts, our thoughts, reflect in my life, and in yours.

Wake up call!!!

What is Joy?

Image
Go ahead and let the spirit of joy has its way with you! David Rudder




If anyone asked me the question what is Joy, my standard response would be an internal feeling coming from within that transcends happiness, and I can tell you what gave me joy! But wow, I think that I have seen joy in the flesh last night!

I went to Junior Panorama, this is a competition based in Trinidad and Tobago during the carnival season where children under the age of 16 play the steel plan, the national instrument of the country!

I stood there watching an eight to ten year old pan players and I started to weep! They were sending out an energy that I cannot even explain! Tears just kept falling I felt so much joy to see their joy! It is something, a feeling I haven't experienced in a long long long time! The kids were looking at me like I'm a mad woman, standing there crying while they were so happy! That for me was joy!
And just randomly I ended up there! Didn't even plan it! So this as well made…

Love never changes

Good day peeps! Sharing my reading for today! 

I will know love when I realize...the world as I know it begins and ends with love... ...Love never changes. It remains constant and available in an unlimited supply... ...Imagine yourself surrounded by it, embraced and protected by it, free from all harm for just a moment. When your defenses fall away and your heart opens, you've got it. Love is right where you are, wherever you are, in this moment -- Love is available to you right now. Will you be available to love? Can you be? Are you open to receive it? Until today, you may have believed you had to FIND love. Just for today, hold thoughts and images of love in your mind. When you can be love, move in love and see love in all things, you are living in the truth of your soul. What could be more fulfilling? Today I am devoted to thinking loving thoughts, seeing love in all and giving love to all. ~~Iyanla Vanzant, "Until Today", 

A better what?

Decide what you want- Jack Canfield


I'm tired this week, it's been one of the  weeks when I am raising the vibes because I just want to say to heck with it all! I know what my triggers are, and that's important to know what ticks you off because you can then recognize and take steps to get back on track!
So why am I tired? The year started off with me in El Salvador and as part of being there I had some great "me" time! And in that time I signed up for about four programmes - self help programmes. You know the types which are supposed to "make you better"  To me, somehow in my mind I think that I have to always be a better person. This week I'm tired of it! I think I will just be me!

So I sat down and thought about it, I asked myself what is it really that I want? A better what? What ow why  am I searching for a better personality? Ok I told you I was tired so therein lies the rant!
But on a serious note, I'm advocating being your highest self, …

Excerpt from New Book Nyabo(Madam) - Why are you here?

Show up As YourselfAffirmation: I let go of all limitations
Journal Entry7: So these stereotypes, it gets me every time! The hungry and starving native! Oh please! There is so much food here, it seems as if everyone grows food and takes care of animals in their backyards for consumption. Sometimes too close for comfort. Like the two big as hell pigs that live next door that I am sure eat healthier than I do. I swear I saw Among giving the pigs avocados this morning! But the smell, well if I ever thought about eating pork having lived next to these two pigs those thoughts has been truly banished. Today I am going shopping to  get cable TV! To all those who thought that I would be in a hut in the bush somewhere buried well I got news for you...


Look out for the new book dropping soonPeace!

Challenge some of your beliefs

“where you are. is not who you are. – circumstances” 
― Nayyirah Waheed, salt



I always had this idea that yoga was boring, don't even ask me how I came to that conclusion, and I never even gave it a try, just formed a conclusion and ran with it! How many times have you done that, taken what someone else has told you as gospel before even giving it a try or investigating it, do you know how much fun and life events I have missed out on because of taking other people's opinions, definitions and perceptions without doing my own investigation of my truth? I decided to stop that when one of my teachers said " stand guard at the door of your mind" and " challenge your core beliefs, ask it some questions, explore and investigate it" Life has been so much sweeter since then! I have started doing so many things that I never even thought about doing! Going to so many places and events and meeting some awesome people! Anyways, back to yoga, I really dig it now! I see s…

Creativity keeps the world alive

Image
creativity keeps the world alive, yet, everyday we are asked to be ashamed of honoring it, wanting to live our lives as artists. I've carried the shame of being a ‘creative’ since i came to the planet; have been asked to be something different, more, less my whole life. thank spirit, my wisdom is deeper than my shame, and i listened to who i was. i want to say to all the creatives who have been taught to believe who you are is not enough for this world, taught that a life of art will amount to nothing, know that who we are, and what we do is life. when we create, we are creating the world. remember this, and commit.”
Nayyirah Waheed




Yesterday the book store called me for a meeting, I love them, they are super duper lovely! I thought it was good timing as the book is due out soon and I want to do a few events there as well
But to my surprise, they presented me with a cheque! I tell you, I was happy as ever, not in my wildest dreams I ever thought that this journey would take me to …

Take the path..

Quality easy brings a sense of expansion to things. Quality easy is compelling—because when you say yes to grace, you’re saying yes to the natural flow of life. You lift your face toward the grace, like flowers lean into the light. D. La Porte


Life is the journey, most of us are impatient with the journey as if 'somewhere' is the life, but the life is the journey, that's all it is! Part of the journey is work, not all of it, the journey is not only work, work, work. The journey involves a level of trust and rest. Support will come your way, doors will open, people will show up, resources will be there but it will be daily. I'm stressing the daily, one day at a time!
You will have whatever you need every step of the way, when you need it. Just stay on the road. W get sidetracked with the petty detours.

Everybody has a path with their name on it, a calling, a reason for you to be here now it's just a different journey. All roads are going to lead to the God (whatever…
