Some Confidence

The featured image is one of my paintings, "Lost Souls". There is freedom in knowing who you are. Discovering who I am not has taken me on a journey to discover who I truly am. Here is an affirmation for today: I am confident in who I am. Nothing or no one can shake who I am at the core of my foundation. I am unapologetically me. I am an expression of love. I am proof of grace. I am Divine. I am a being of light. Above all, I am love and I am thankful that God loves me. Own who you are today. You're God's own. Live in that. -A page from The Book of Corinthian

Use Me

There have been seasons of my life where I've been dead set on proving people wrong. During those seasons I was stuck! I now realize that it was my intention that kept me in this sunken place. The energy that births your intention is typically the energy that you see in the results. No longer am I concerned with proving anyone wrong. I'm now committed every day to wake up and prove myself right. I'm dedicated to prove that the Creator was right when choosing me for this assignment and for gifting me with all I need to fulfill it. When I die I want to be able to say that I used every single thing that God gave me from my family all the way to my spiritual and physical gifts. On my dying day I want to be able to hold my hands up saying, "I don't have none left God! It's all gone! I'm tired b...

I will go wherever You will have me to go. I accept my divine assignment. And so it is!

Affirmations for Giving Birth

The featured image in this post is the journal that I started using the month before Legend was born. It's on top of my painting "rebirth". It was a week before my due date to deliver Legend and no doctor had agreed to deliver him if I didn't agree to have another c-section. Every doctor told me that I wouldn't be able to push and the surgery was my only option. I believed otherwise. I was convinced that I had to deliver Legend vaginally. I believed that I could do it no matter what the circumstances looked like. Jarvis was encouraging me and assuring me that everything would work out. I knew this too but still I was freaking out. We were getting close and I could feel that Legend would be coming soon. Soon Jarvis' words would leave me and I would be left to sit with my own thoughts. I ha...

While a baby is in the womb, they blindly trust that their mother they've never seen face to face will provide their needs. Why is it so hard for us to trust in our Source to do the same for us? It's difficult to live a life of freedom if living in fear of having your basic needs met. Use this simple affirmation today as you go throughout your day. Use it beyond today and say it as often as you need to until it becomes a part of you. Watch things change. God provides everything I need everyday Each and every step of the way Corinthian Elizabeth "All That is Love" The Book of Corinthian

Not On That Couch

Black folks don't like therapy Nobody wants to admit That we have issues “Talking out loud to a stranger Is for white folks I'm okay with these meds I got my liquor too” When we begin to have honest and uncomfortable conversations regarding mental health, we can heal. Until then mental health remains a taboo subject as I have commonly seen it in the black community. Until then we are left to guess and wonder about the matter much less normalize healing.

Managing Postpartum Depression

After suffering in silence with postpartum depression for nearly a year after giving birth to my firstborn, I was determined to have a much more positive postpartum experience this time around. This Saturday will make three months since birthing Legend and so far I've had just that, a more positive postpartum experience. I know a lot of women go through some degree of postpartum depression whether they are aware of it or not. If you're reading this post, you've been led here for one reason or another. Of course I recommend seeing a therapist or professional for all mental health concerns but here are some more ways to be proactive in managing postpartum depression. Limit Meat from your Diet I could be biased about this one because I don't eat meat at all anymore. September will make ...

Affirmations for Postpartum Depression

After giving birth, a woman's hormones change altering her emotional state aside from the physical aspects of delivering a life into this world. With my oldest son, I experienced postpartum depression in what seemed like the worst way. It took me almost a year to feel "normal" again. When I got into spiritual healing, I was able to identify some of the root causes of my postpartum depression experience in conjunction with the physical, emotional, and hormonal changes. Some of those were: Fear of embracing change Feeling unworthy Lack of self-care and self love Living in the past Guilt and shame Setting unrealistic expectations This time after giving birth, my mental and emotional health has been just as important if not more important than my physical health. I’m still working...

No One Told Me This About Marriage

Two months after graduating from college I was pregnant, engaged, and living in a new city. I received advice, most of it unsolicited, about what I should not do as a wife. I also heard a bit of the negative sides of marriage. While some of the advice came in handy, no one told me that I would get to fall in love with a new person as we both continued along our journey and evolved. No one told me that it was possible to love a person more and more each day as the years would go by. Luckily, I got to find this out on my own. Jarvis and I celebrated two years of marriage earlier this year and next month will make five years that we've been in a committed relationship. We've watched each other champion through trials and go through changes. We've watched each other grow and evolve into new...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #7: Just Let it Go

On Sunday, I washed Jarvis Jr's hair, dyed it (per his request), combed it out, and gave him some small twist. After completing the lengthy process, I pulled out all of his hair that shed out of the comb. He saw me do this and gave me this look of terror. "Mommy is that my hair? Is my hair coming out?" he asked in almost what seemed a panic. I replied, "No baby. This is just your old hair that shed. You have plenty of new hair that came in, you can't even tell that this is gone." After soothing him, he calmed down and looked in the mirror at his new set of "Uzi's". He refers to his twists as "Uzis" with inspiration from rapper Lil Uzi Vert. He said, "Wow. My hair is super long. I like it." Just that quick it was as if he forgot all about the hair that shed as he smiled in admiration of the...
