Radical Self Care

You dance to your favorite songs at the end of your morning routine.

The angels whispered you awake at 5 am and you promised yourself & God to make the most of this day and appreciate it no matter what comes your way.

Focus up love- you got this.

Enough

A lot of times we (i) get caught up in “being better”, meeting goals, etc, etc.

Sometimes people’s criticism, critiques or perspectives of who we are distract us from that God given knowing : You are more than enough in this moment.

It is my belief and personal experience that as I release my need for approval and simply love me as is – I grow and expand.

The dark parts, the light parts, the broken parts I love them all because they were made with intention – an intention that isn’t always for other humans to understand or approve of.

I am enough.

You are too.

Please – please remember that where ever you are on your journey today and everyday you are enough.

You are enough and anything else after that is an addition.

You are enough.

You are.

I often sing the song above to myself about myself – sometimes in the mirror.

Soul Share: I joined Arianna Elizabeth’s 30 meditation challenge. Her words, her voice- soothing and healing.

Almost doesn’t count

I almost filed down my fangs for you

I think this as I wipe the blood from my mouth and kiss your forehead

Feeling like Janie must have felt after she shot Teacake

Now your eyes are closed

And my eyes are watching God – praying I’ll been granted forgiveness for literally eating this man

I almost filed down my fangs for you

But when has almost ever counted?

Don’t start none…

There was no more putting up with abuse of any kind from anyone.

Don’t expect kindness from people you treat unkindly.

Don’t expect understanding when you don’t give understanding.

Don’t expect honesty from others when you aren’t honest with yourself.

Don’t expect unconditional love when you love conditionally.

Don’t expect peace when you create wars with your gossiping words and messy behaviors.

And definitely don’t expect humans like me to put up with that shit.

For a long time I put up with abusive behavior from various sources because I didn’t want to be “disrespectful”.

Bull

Shit

Unhealthy, toxic, and shitty is unhealthy, toxic, and shitty – regardless of how it is related.

Charity begins at home.

Unconditional love begins at home.

Kindness begins at home.

Understanding begins at home.

Peace begins at home.

Home is where the heart is.

Your heart is your body.

Start with yourself.

Focus on your OWN addictions, afflictions, and issues.

And when you are Mentally, Emotionally, and Physically well enough then maybe you can actually help others in an authentic, lasting, and beneficial way.

There are many amazing souls out here putting in work to make the world a more “lit” place – in big ways and small ways- if you can’t be one of them- that’s cool – but don’t be a distraction.

Please sit your ass down somewhere- please.

There was no more putting up with abuse of any kind from anyone.

You thought.

he thought no one noticed the nasty petty things he did

he thought no one heard the fucked up words he had spoken

Leaving out details and retelling the “truth”

Boasting, bragging, and putting others down

he thought no one noticed the small things he did to get under our skin

Quietly we listen and watch

As the archangels implore us to hold our position

God cut us a deal and told us our mission -Respond from a higher place or not at all -there will be blessings – there will be gifts

We focus on this deal – Understanding that we have a responsibility to be more then the negative energy we receive/perceive

Remembering that we aren’t victims in the least and that these are tests of character

Our anger has boiled over once or twice …

We remind ourselves that We aren’t perfect either and We remove ourselves and feel our feelings as needed

Transmuting anger with heavenly help

We reset and regroup

Continually praying and realigning ourselves with the peace We’ve worked so hard to cultivate

his self hate and jealousy would not and could not derail us

We are built for more and this battle isn’t ours

he thought that no one noticed the nasty petty things he did

O, I noticed cackled Karma as she clocked in for work

The battle was never ours

You thought that no one noticed

You thought.

The stories they told

Time- the only true truth teller it seemed…

She let time tell the story.

Time was her teacher and she listened with appreciation.

Quotes, links, and things that have soothed my soul this week:

“Work on how you respond when you feel disrespected.” -Nipsey Hussle

Truth In Silence

Time really does heal all wounds- but we must allow it.

Stay well Butterflies

Psychedelic Psyche

psy·che1/ˈsīkē/noun

  1. the human soul, mind, or spirit. “their childhood made them want to understand the human psyche and to help others”

Conversations with Hasheesh were always illuminating even when they were dark

Spark Spark goes his lighter

His psychedelic psyche pilots the high

Sometimes it’s a time machine and to the past he goes

Sometimes it’s too another dimension

And his forehead glows

I listen deeply and understand more and more what his old soul came here for

Angel on his right shoulder

Devil on the left

Conversations with Hasheesh were always illuminating even when they were dark

Tunes featuring the voice of Hasheesh :
