A-musing

he takes pictures

i search for cafes open at 1am

we are partners in time

experiencing life together in way that can only be captured partially by any medium

A kaleidoscope of action and emotion driven by a love that seems only to grow with time

he orders us kombucha

i sketch his face in my notebook

we are partners in time

Helm of the heart

Slightly overwhelmed she let her heart take the helm

No more resisting all the unknowing

Falling softly into another realm

Heart at the helm

Falling slowly into the realization that this too shall past

Clarity flows through her

A cleansing wave of reality

Resilience sparkles on her skin

Heart at the helm

Releasing overwhelm

As heavenly help arrives

The heart knows who to call

Heart at the helm

No more overwhelm

”Just drop us a pin.”

they pulled up in the dead of night with love and empathy for everyone

night work

light work

God sent

hell-bent on making you remember that you are heaven-sent

built for more you are

one of God’s brilliant stars

cosmically created

you are enough

they pulled up in the dead of night with love and empathy for every one

Silence & Chatter

heart silence is louder then mind chatter

balance found between sight and sound

between light and profound

between words of wisdom and works of wisdom

heart silences the chattering mouth of mind

now body sleeps

as spirit creeps

into every

auricle and ventricle

cell and seam

free wheeling healing and making space for clarity’s gifts

heart silence is louder then mind chatter

Invasion of Privacy/ Ain’t no Shame

Image via Oprah.com

There is nothing more horrifiying, frustrating, and anxiety inducing than having your privacy violated.

In my 333 years on Earth I have been recorded without permission, stalked, had my emails hacked, and, I square to Bob, had a drone flying in my backyard.

Now the drone thing was around the holiday and could have been some man child playing with a new electronic.

I have never ever been a fan of email or social media.

Shit, to keep it 5000 I have never been a fan of computers.

The virtual mask is an especially wily one. People create stories about you and themselves and then act from this cloudy space in the real world.

Janky.

About 4-5 years ago I linked up with someone my people ALWAYS told me NOT to speak to or deal with since I was a teenager.

There is nothing like a flock of older Jamaicans who don’t like somebody.

Laughs

Shout out to y’all-I was hard headed- I am sorry.

Listen to the wise older individuals you trust in your life. They know.

Dealing with this individual cost me about $2k and who knows how much emotionally and mentally. It was the beginning of a spiral of bad vibes.

I was embarrassed, ashamed, and hurt.

I didn’t want to tell anyone for a while about all that happened – but holding on to negative emotions, thoughts, and stories is a recipe for disaster.

Things got a lot worst before they got better.

They began to get better when I sought out healthy help.

Today, as I was going through my emails his full ass name popped up on some one travel thing to redeem points (?)- just seeing his name made me want to throw up – why he would even be utilizing my email address is beyond me.

Beyond.

All that shame resurfaced but not for long- because I have the tools now to deal.

I thank God for Brené Brown because I am now unafraid to face shame.

I caught my thoughts before they spiraled – I called and spoke to the right people and have a plan of action.

Shame is the illest silencer-

DO NOT LET SHAME SILENCE YOU.

SPEAK UP.

USE YOUR VOICE.

GET ASSISTANCE.

Don’t let anyone harass you quietly behind a screen or to your face.

God didn’t give any of us a spirit of fear and anybody trying to scare you is working for the other side of things.

You feel me?

We are protected and connected.

Writer’s Note: Sir(s) this is a public request to leave me alone. It is all peace here and we would like to keep it that way.

As Is Lovin’

Not being loved and accepted as is, by myself and others, has taught me to love and accept people, situations, things, and me as is.

I know this isn’t always easy with all the standards, judgments, mask-wearing and blah blah blah swirling around us but;

To be loved just as you are is powerful.

To be loved just as you are is healing.

To be loved just as you are is Godly.

To be loved just as you are is sacred.

It’s interesting, it seems to me that ”as is loving” incites growth and expansion organically.

I stand in gratitude.

Thank you for loving me as I am.

Rooting for revival

Sketch by Me

She sat silently resting in the forest of her heart.

We can remain stuck in fear & holding on to the past, or we can use our past experiences to move confidently into the future. – Tanaaz

These words echoed throughout the canyons of her mind as strong winds of change began to blow in and around her.

Two cardinals flew by with a message.

When the roots are deep, there is no need to fear the wind. – Unknown

She stood faithfully and fearlessly in the forest of her own heart as her body began moving forward in time with the divine.

And so it is.
