Restoring Balance

Our ultimate goal is to find balance within ourselves so we can BE HAPPY and BE LOVE. When we choose life affirming and soul fulfilling activities, relationships and jobs we are naturally spiritually fed through the joy of simply being ALIVE. When we are in balance - we enjoy our life, we feel our connection to our soul, the Earth, the Universe, Creation and each other. When we are in alignment with our true self, we are fully connected to the present moment and enJOYing life to it's fullest experience without the egoic expectations and demands of the ego. S Ruer
I met a fascinating lady yesterday, and before I knew her story she said to me " We know when we are off balance, we get signs from our bodies, it may be a cold, a pain in the neck or feeling tired all the time" I immediately thought hmmm I can relate to what she is saying, right there and then because I was feeling out of balance, I was running on gas on empty having spent the entire day in a meeting without eat…

In and Out of the Homestead

So next time you are faced with a big decision, choose to make decisions for your self that are in alignment with your JOY. When you are happy and filled with joy your high vibrational frequency radiates out to everyone else. This is what being LOVE really means - it means to be your own generator of LOVE, from within, so you can be the example for everyone else to be their own generator of LOVE as well. For we can not truly give to someone else what we have not already cultivated for our self. Sabrine Ruer

I love coming to Trinidad, my soul feels at peace, when I drive out of the airport and see the Trinity Hills I know that I am in the right space and place. I got back home today for one week and I intend to make the most of my time here, soak in the hills and see my family.
I say this to remind myself that there is always something here to bring me back in line
I was so angry with myself for dropping the ball and I was literally cussing myself and everybody around me about the &quo…

Find me in the midst of the maelstrom

Find me in the midst of the maelstrom.Sometimes events whirl around you so quickly that they become a blur. Whisper my name in recognition that I am still with you. Without skipping a beat in the activities that occupy you, you find the strength and peace through praying my name. Later, when the happenings have run their course you can talk to me more fully. Accept each day just as it comes to you. Do not waste your time and energy wishing for a different set of circumstances. Instead trust me enough to yield to my design and purposes.Remember that nothing can separate you from my loving presence Philippians 2:9

Houston, I thank you, each time I pray for the events to be that which I can be my highest self, share the lessons as authentically as possible and learn from it and leave all other expectations my prayers are always answered in unexpected ways that usually blow my mind. It's call surrender,being open, flexibility.
Are you willing to do what is required to get what you say…

Houston Book Tour Day 5 - A Break in the Norm

Burn the draft, the plan, the strategy that you thought was everything - Danielle La Porte

Today I am taking a break in the touring to participate in a meeting focused on the effect of climate change on small farmers in small and developing nations, following on from that I will go out and see Houston a bit. I have the privilege to work with small farmers and community businesses in my country through CANARI and UNDP to look at the climate change effects on their businesses. I will be paying attention as this is part of the lessons on the journey
It is evident to me that I cannot live in a vacuum as I am connected to everyone, as Neale Donald Walsh says, all of us are one, even in A Course of Miracles they talk about that the only thing that needs to be healed in the world is our sense of separation.
When I think and believe that I am connected to my brothers and sisters my behavior changes.
And even more key is that when my actions impact me, in a way that causes me stress or is unhe…

Flap it out

The funks, blues, I feel weird moments or series of moments have all kinds of life nuggets to show you. You’re learning. You’re expanding. Look for the light Maxie McCoy

Nature teaches me so much, I sometimes forget that I can turn to nature to learn lessons as well
Everything is for a season - look at the the change of seasons, they never last forever, as much as sometimes we moan that the winter is dragging on it shifts just at the right time and cannot be rushed
It cannot rain forever, at some point the rain stops and the sun comes out again and it cannot be rushed
Grass can grow anywhere even in pitch and concrete
The sun and moon comes out silently but the effect is oh so awesome
The sky is there all the time, look up and see somethings that blow your mind
So with that reminder I got outside in the nature of Houston for a run after the rain and storm stopped andbumped into a lake with some ducks and turtles
The ducks, looking oh so grateful on the watr, swimming away I shouted at…

Day 4 National Black Book Festival

Stop Asking “Why?”: You don’t need to know why you do or don’t do this or that thing. You simply need to behave differently. Asking “why” is really just an attempt to go back in life to where you “dropped the stitch on happiness” and reverse-engineer your mistakes. In other words, “why” is generally a focus on the past but the key to happiness today is to focus on TODAY’S right actions. Jen

So Texas was under storm threat! the rain and wind was relentless, the event was cancelled! I was disappointed, I started counting - well counting lost cash and all other forms of what if's! And then, I remembered the lessons, make friends with reality and move on.
I t rained all day.......
The opportunity arose for me to spend time with my cousins who I grew up with who came to the book festival to see me, to support me, to relax, to stay inside and eat my favourite foods, bake and saltfish! And so my smile reappeared as I could not put a price on this
Had so much fun with my peeps, I cannot c…

Day 3 National Black Book Festival

Do not become anxious, excited, or emotionally upset if affairs do not immediately begin producing the results you desire. Do not try to force or hurry your mental image into fulfillment. Anxious, excited, emotional, hurried, forced states of mind produce violent results that are seldom satisfactory, and they can be most discouraging and destructive.
Day 3 in Texas,yesterday was a long one, met quite a few awesome authors, spent too much cash on books and learned quite a bit about marketing and promoting and of course ate wayyy to much! Today is shaping up to be nice as well! Giving thanks for the opportunity! Peace

Houston - we have no problem...

There is meaning in everyday experiences - Byron Katie (I love her!)

Day 2 in Houston Texas, I have family living in the area and it is always so good to see them, they took the opportunity to meet me yesterday and it is always so funny that I always ignore that they have very strong opinions on how I ought to look! So as soon as they saw me we they commented that I need a spa, too many bags under the eyes, no manicure, no pedicure, to me I really wasn't bothered and I just got off a flight. But what I have learnt is that relinquishing all concern about a gift given is all that matters and to now be open to receiving as giving is also part of receiving and being able to receive is part of me signalling to the Universe that I am worthy, I am enough
So we drove to the salon, I took the pampering and it felt super duper good!

Today is a packed day at the National Black Book Festival, the sessions start at 8am with a breakfast seminar and I am now fully pampered!

New Journeys - National Black Book Festival 2015

Your creativity positively impacts the world. It's ripe with beauty and innovation. Everyone benefits from your art, especially you. Get to know your talented inner muse. Nurture your vision. Your unique gifts are meant to be shared Kris Carr

I am travelling today to the National Black Book Festival which will be held this upcoming week in Houston TX! This is my first foray into this, a national book festival and I am pretty excited to be a part of it where there will be quite a few authors and writers that I admire. I am looking forward to seeing their presentations.
I will definitely be sharing lessons on the journey so see you on the other side!

Check out an interview with me on LiveStyle Magazine


Take a hit for the team. You don’t think you’re learning lessons just for your own good, do you? 
Risk being disliked (actually, it’s not a risk, it’s inevitable.)
Risk being very very misunderstood (and you don’t know how much that hurts until it happens.)
Say what you feel — in every possible way.
Burn the draft, the plan, the strategy that you thought was everything.
Pray. On your knees. (When’s the last time you did that?)
Cut people out of your life.
Humbly make amends. Danielle La Porte 

My friend Stacey told me to stop living a "supposed to" life I asked her what she meant She told me that I say " I am supposed to....." quite a bit and many times its bull shit and fear talking I am supposed to stay calm, supposed to be making better decisions, supposed to know what to do and when even when I never came up with that situation yada yada yada Miss supposed woman All I am supposed to do is to be myself!
So many lessons learnt over this past month about myself and I can only s…

95% is an A

Just in case I’m not making myself clear: It’s typical in this being human that we don’t ever want to be seen as the one who is unprepared. That we have to have everything lined up, so that we aren’t seen to slip up.
95% is ready enough. Dawn Moxie

I do, I am not a big talker, thinker or one that waits! I want to do something and I do it
It sometimes gets me in big big trouble, however I have decided and accepted  that I prefer the trouble than the procrastination and fear in waiting, I have stopped beating myself up about it as well
Perfection is not a requirement to start anything, willingness and courage is!
According to Dawn Moxie 95% in an exam is an A so when I am 95% ready I go!
I go and I learn as I move
So ask yourself are you genuinely not ready or are you just scared?

I let the love go where it wants to go

What mattered was that I showed up. I let the love go where it usually wants to go: toward someone else who really needs it. Danielle LaPorte
The First Citizens Women's Conference gig was my best ever! I had so much fun! It just felt that I was supposed to be there at one of the biggest Women's Conference in the country and that is not a boast, it is the manifestation of a vision! I was well prepared really through a combination of self belief, preparation and faith! I want you to know that self belief and good ole' sweat and passion is enough, that you are enough and to keep on keeping on I want you to know that there will be challenges and people talking shit, but that is par for the course, continue, do your do! do you! I want you to know that you may get tired, find a place to reboot and recharge then come again! I want you to know that you have the ability to create and this power can be tapped into at any time! I want you to know that dreams become real! Peace!

This supposed life

This supposed life You are caught up in what you’re supposed to do and how you’re supposed to be. You’ve decided that there is a way you’re supposed to act and a way you’re supposed to live. Your entire life has been designed to support the illusion of what life is supposed to be like. You pressure yourself not to feel the emotions you’re not supposed to feel. You allow more than you should because you’re not supposed to get angry. You do what good people are supposed to do, be quiet. This supposed life is slowly killing you. Why not try doing what you feel called to do? Why not be who you decide to be? Why not say what you want to say? Why not go where you want to go?  Why not feel how you want to feel. You’re are only supposed to be you. The only fairytale worth living is the one you design for yourself, anything else is not supposed to be for you. 
Thank you Stacey Peace

It's ok to feel...everything

As long as the present moment is seen as an obstacle, there can be no end to problems. “I'll be whatever you want me to  be,” says Life or the Now. “I'll treat you the way you treat me. If you see me as a problem, I will be a problem to you. If you treat me as an obstacle, I will be an obstacle.” Eckhart Tolle

It is okay to feel, everything. Allow the not-so-great feelings to move through you, without judging yourself for feeling it. Ask yourself  "would I say this to someone I love?" And if the answer is no... then you should not be saying it to you either. And that is all!!!

The Absence of Proof

Our beliefs about life and ourselves form and then come true for us when we find evidence to support them. By acting ‘as if’ we start creating evidence to prove this new belief about ourselves is right. Deborah Johnson
I was having a conversation with one of my favorite people, she said to me "you doubt because you want to see evidence, the evidence is missing according to your perception and you forget that you are creating the evidence and sometimes in fact all the time creation takes time" All I could have said was hmmmmm!!! because I know that what she said is that it made absolute sense. Doubt- the absence of what you believe is true, 
Doubt - looking for something you feel is not there based on your limited sight and perception.
Doubt - questioning what you asked for and questioning the wisdom of the Universe. The Universe is smarter than you! And it simply creates what you ask for and wants you to pay attention. If you plant a seed and then uproot it please do not expect it…

Have an opinion

if we instead pass judgement on our daily life challenges and make them “wrong” and resist them, we end up feeling trapped by them, as though it’s not even possible to have a life of joy.
We feel defeated by life instead of realizing how every single one of our circumstances actually provides a means for us to express our Perfection. Neale Donald Walsh

I am sharing excerpts of  an article here written by one of my favorite ladies Maxie Mccoy

Be someone that brings something to the table. Be a person who expresses. Have thoughts. Share your energy. Stand your ground. And for the love of sunsets and puppy dogs - hold an opinion. have an opinion. share your opinion. Do not coil down. Do not retract. Do not always remain in such an area of gray that you lose your distinction. Stand for something. Stand for lots of things. And don't be afraid to share it. When you find yourself without opinions it's typically out of a need for someone's approval. It comes from a place o…

This word is not in my vocabulary

Shame hates it when we reach out and tell our story. It hates having words wrapped around it—it can’t survive being shared. Shame loves secrecy. The most dangerous thing to do after a shaming experience is hide or bury our story. When we bury our story, the shame metastasizes Brene Browne

Confession or maybe the better term is pet peeve - using the word shame loosely! OMG I just refuse, I cannot! In our culture it is used often, someone is telling a story " Oh I was so shame, girl" someone laughs at a joke "Shame" I refuse to use it, just refuse to use the word, its not in my vocabulary! I want it to remain outside of my consciousness whether in a joke or not, it may just be my issues but hey I am owning it!
"Shame" I have seen stop so many actions- I have heard numerous times " I am too shame to do that" said just like that! Huh? What are you "shame" about? I absolutely refuse to use the word! Okay rant over
Shame says something is wrong…

Give your body a break

no one else can give you what you have not yet given to yourself.
If you do not have what you crave in life right now, no one else can give it to you. And if you haven’t been able to give it to yourself, then what?
In my experience, what is needed is a new perspective. We must learn to see ourselves and our lives from a different place. Neale Donald Walsh

The body keeps score and it always wins- I heard that today and it resonated with me.  The lady went on to describe that we hold on to things and then the body says "hey, no more" and when it says that the body breaks down through pain, illness or it just stops and shuts down! So in the main, when we let it go the body is free to do what it is supposed to do
And I am referring here to the internal work, because it all starts inside, it is really inside out.

So the thing that you are holding on to, let it go, hell even the tax authorities only "chase" you for a certain time, after they let it go! When you keep the thing…

Call Forth a New Reality

"calamities" are blessings, not yet understood by the Mind.  Neale Donald Walsh

On my journeys, I make it a priority to pay attention, because lessons come in from everywhere! And with this in mind I want to share that all experiences have value, every single one
What messes us up is our perception and how we want it to look and how we believe things ought to happen. Leave the judgement aside and look for the lesson.

Whatever it is that is now presenting itself as part of your creation, own it, claim it, bless it, be thankful for it. Seek not to condemn it
If there is some aspect you find you do not enjoy, bless it and move on. Choose again
and end the moaning and complaining, do it magnificently, think a new thought, call forth a new reality!

What are your rituals?

Inspiration doesn't turn its back. You do. I did. The only difference between periods of frolicking with inspiration and those empty of it is OUR daily choices. Do you cultivate a warm and inviting lifestyle for inspiration to come into? Do you open the door and invite it in? Do you stay open and connected to your deep sense of self on a daily basis? Maxie McCoy (love her work!)

What are your rituals? What are some of the things that you do daily, consistently which brings about the spark, the connection to your highest self, that fuels the inspiration that lives within you? What are the things that make it into your daily life, consciously? I mean the thing that you do everyday which brings a smile to your face, that ignites the fire within?
You don't have any? Well sisters and brothers, why not? Why would you prefer to not do something consistently which inspires you, motivates you, reaches into your soul? It could be as simple as a walk in the park, a football game on the gre…

Make friends with now

When you are Present, when your attention is fully in the Now, that Presence will flow into and transform what you do. There will be quality and power in it. You are present when what you are doing is not primarily a means to an end (money, prestige, winning) but fulfilling in itself, when
there is joy and aliveness in what you do. And, of course, you cannot be present unless you become friendly with the present moment. That is the basis for effective action, uncontaminated by negativity. Ekhart Tolle

Make friends with now, it is one of my absolute favorite lessons, it translates to me the following
1. Pay attention
2. Be present
3. Accept the reality of the situation in the moment as it is, not as you want, think or believe it ought to be. Acceptance does not mean that you like it, it means you recognize that this is what it is and make peace with that in order to assist you in deciding what is the best way forward
4. Make a decision - change the situation, if you could or leave it, M…

Ego Lessons

When you become present your life acknowledges your presence. Being present is key to letting the universe know you mean business, ready for abundance and purpose. Living a life of false layers will cover your direct connection to the universe. You might as well wear an invisibility cloak, well if they had such a thing. Unleash your ghost and dance with them darlings. Speak with them truth. Show up. Entirely. Unapologetically. The good and the ugly. The moment you step into your true self is the moment you become Limitless... Author Love Juliet

The ego teaches us that things like credentials,prestige,money and worldly power are more important than love. It counsels that we are separate from others, that we have to compete to get ahead, and that we're not quite good enough the way we are. And by our thinking such things, we perpetuate a world in which they seem true.
Such things such as credentials, prestige,money and worldly power refer to our external selves, and our external selve…

Follow the path in your heart

Talk the way you talk. Think the way you think. Wear your scars. Do what you were called to do, not what you want to do. Follow the path in your heart, not the path that you see many others travel. Tony GaskinsToday I told someone I have a fake person shield and blocker, the fake ones just approach and bound off the shield, they just cannot come around me and penetrate the shield. She laughed, but I truly believe that I do, I see them coming and I know the shield will come up and either block them or block me. I may not even know what happened, I may have genuinely like the person but the shield doesn't care, it just works and the person cannot penetrate it no matter what I may try all I might but the person cannot penetrate! The lesson is though is compassion, and to show love to them - from afar.......Why do we put such unrealistic expectations on ourselves? there is a different in being yourself and being perfect. Who's perfect any ole how? Newsflash! No one!!!So show up, …

Discipline - be a disciple for it

It's a matter of discipline - It's all about intent - Neale Donald Walsh

Discipline your mind - think the thoughts that provide you with the life you desire, read the books that provide the information, inspiration, and knowledge, watch the TV with intention rather than to numb yourself from your own real life.  Discipline your mouth - say what you need to say, the truth, and say it with love.  Discipline your actions - it may be hard, it's worth it because hard now means getting what you desire later Discipline your body - what's going in. Eat well- eat for nourishment, feed your body well. Who are you letting in that space?  Discipline your environment - order - order is the law! order in your mind translates to order in your environment and order in your life. The Universe is orderly, night will not fall during the day and the moon will not shine in the day, the seasons follow each other Discipline is a word associated with pain and punishment and for that gets a ba…

Expect the Unexpected and Handle It

Nothing in our lives can happen to us unless our soul is in agreement to experience it. There are no victims, each of us are responsible for our own creations Sabrina Reur

I was thinking today that my life will be so boring if I knew everything that was going to happen and when! I love surprises, it is confirmed! I love it when unexpected things pop up daily and I get to experience all the feelings that come with them, and not all of the experiences are the happy smiley type, however, I get to see my response, which many times show me where I am and what I am attracting into my space. My response to people and situations is up to me, that much I know, people do what they do based on who they are and their experiences and lessons and so do I and my vibrations attact like people and situations so when I am on a low vibe- continuously, I get a wake up call
So I hit another car,not paying attention because of what? I accepted to to a job that my intuition told me not to do, I was bitching…

Measure your life with love. Of others. Of you.

Measure your life with love. Of others. Of you.  Measure with joy, from deep and lasting support. Measure it in what you give. Measure in what you feel. Measure only from your heart to your soul. Maxie Mc Coy

There's things. So many things. Things and things and things and things. We collect things. We store things. We pay serious cash for THINGS. The things that hang on our walls. The things that decorate our things. People to clean our things. Move our things. Fix our things. We wear our things. Shine our things. And go broke over things. We give a lot of power over for more things. Better things. Nicer things. We think these things say something about us. They show our personality. Our status. Our coolness. Our fitness. The things add up. They pile up. They stop being things that we enjoy, love, and give, but things that take and take and take. They take up space. They take up energy. And they're just things. T H I N G S.
Purge your things to purge the heavy energy of your soul. K…
