Cosmic Events, Lunar Eclipse, and Healing

We currently have four planets in retrograde right now, Saturn, Jupiter, Pluto, and Venus. Retrogrades bring change, collective energy shifts, and opportunities for deep healing. We can see this in action right now as the world has been going through a deep purging since the rapid spreading of Covid 19. Racism is also a pandemic, which is being brought to light at this time in particular causing the planet to shift more in regards to unity consciousness. Its a lot, I know, but there are things being worked out right now for our highest good that we cannot see with the naked eye. What's going on right now is a spiritual war. In the end, the light will shine through, the righteous will ascend, and the hatred and darkness will be cast out. If having four planets in retrograde isn't enough, to...

Heavy Is The Head

One thing that I’ve been extremely grateful for during this stay at home order is creating a new bond with my baby boy Legend. Before Freedom was born, Legend was practically glued to me. I always carried him, we were so close. I talk more about that in a past blog. Of course I thought when I had another baby that I would be able to manage being a mom of three and dividing my time up. I realized that it wouldn’t be so easy just minutes after giving birth to Freedom when I walked over to pick Legend up to let him know that he was still my baby. The nurses quickly told me that I could not lift anything heavier than Freedom. My heart was shattered that I wouldn’t be able to pick Legend up for a while. Then later I would experience extreme mommy guilt when I started working three weeks after ...

The Art of Contentment

School hadn’t quite started yet as I stood at my door greeting students upon arrival as they began to fill the halls for the day. We are on block schedule and it was an A day. Tiffany, one of my B day students, walked up to me to return the markers that I let her borrow the day before to finish her black history poster at home. She shared with me how she finished her poster and that her mom hung it up on the wall because she was proud of it. I asked Tiffany if she was also proud of the work that she had done and she hesitated. She said, “Yes, but I could have did it better. I wanted to redo it.” I told her, “Be proud of yourself and what you accomplished. The goal is to continue to improve but you have to celebrate where you are right now even if it’s not where you want to be.” Per usual...

Lessons in Art Class: Self-Love Is The Best Love

Yesterday was the calendar holiday Valentine’s Day. Some of my students celebrated this on Thursday since the students were out of school on that Friday. I watched in the hallway as students passed out gifts to their friends, boyfriends, and girlfriends with excitement. I also noticed that some of my students were empty handed and some were even sad. Fortunately, I had a lesson plan for the day that wasn’t typical for Valentine’s Day that also tied into black history month. Before I could introduce the lesson to my 3rd period 8th grade students, I felt a heavy wave of sadness flood the room. Before we meditated I asked, “How are we feeling today” as I could feel tension coming from the right side of the room. KeKe spoke up, “I’m not having a good day! I didn’t get anything for Valentine’s...

All About Vision Boards

The theme for my art class this year is "Visualize. Believe. Achieve" with the intentions of teaching my students how creating art and creating a vision for their lives are one in the same. During the first six weeks my first semester students made vision boards after we meditated. We jammed Nipsey Hussle's Victory Lap album while doing so. They enjoyed this experience and I enjoyed it even more seeing them accomplish some of their goals as the semester progressed. Above all I witnessed them believe in themselves and gain more confidence. One of my students in particular didn't have any goals when we first started the semester. I asked him to try to come up with something to start and he finally said his goal was to make it to his 21st birthday. I teach in Oak Cliff where this is a common ...

Day 1 of Self-Care: Confidence Through Nail Art

I started going to the nail shop to get my nails done religiously every two weeks back when I was in the 9th grade. Some time shortly after that I started getting pedicures too and then soon eyebrow waxes followed. Each trip I would get new color schemes most times with designs. This became “my thing” that manifested into one of my favorite acts of “self-care” back before the term became trendy. I carried this with me to college even when times got hard. If I had to work extra shifts, sell some of my clothes on eBay, or pick up another side job, I was going to find my way to the nail shop. When I started my motherhood journey 5 years ago I completely stopped getting my nails done. I felt like I didn’t have extra time to go to the nail shop. I figured that any extra money that I had need...

Featured Painting: “Naked”

About 3 months ago, I had a dream that this massive storm was over Dallas. I saw debris flying and flashes of downtown. Fast forward to June 9th and that dream became a reality when me and my kids were caught in this storm leaving the craft store. Hail was falling from the sky, lightning flashing, wind blowing, and both of my babies in the backseat crying while I was struggling to see clearly enough to get us home. I tried to take our normal route home only to see that there was a tree or bush in the middle of the road appearing to be on fire. I turned around and parked near an establishment so that our vehicle would stop swaying back and forth from the heavy winds. When the storm finally calmed down I proceeded to drive. Along the route home I noticed that several trees had fallen and...

Tips for Surviving Eclipse Season, Mercury Retrograde, and Cosmic Shifts

With the solar eclipse and new moon on July 2nd and Mercury Retrograde beginning on July 7th-July 31st, its been a lot to keep up with. The cosmic shifts and new downloads have been intense, yet fulfilling all in the same. The new moon reset the clock for the next 6 months while the solar eclipse shined light on the new portal for ascension designed to shift our planet further into the next dimension. Mercury Retrograde tends to get a bad rep being known as a time for discord in communication and things seeming to go wrong. For sensitive souls, empaths, lightworkers, and healers this can be a season of intense emotions, heightened senses, increased psychic abilities, intuitive dreams, and sleeplessness sprinkled with waves of anxiety. However, this time of enlightenment is not to be fear...

Birthing Freedom

I'm super excited about the second half of this year! Every July for the past 9 years has been a pivotal month for my evolution on my journey towards freedom. Around this time in 2010, I was preparing to leave Louisiana to go to college. This is also when I started my spiritual journey awakening to my desire for freedom. The two summers that followed bought big changes for me with traveling, internships, and gaining independence getting my first apartments. In July of 2013 I started my journey with holistic health and I met my soulmate for the second time who is now my husband. In July of 2014 I started my career post college graduation. The July that followed I changed jobs while adjusting to being a first time mommy. In July of 2016 I earned a certificate and a promotion. This time was...

Featured Painting: “Agony”

Agony: Extreme physical or mental suffering I painted this a few days after I painted Visions of Freedom . This was during a trying time for me. This was also my first day of "Sober September" when I made a conscious decision to let go of a habit that didn't serve me anymore. It was tough. I was struggling with other situations as well at the time. I knew I had two choices. I could allow everything that I was going through break me, which would have been easy. Or I could allow it to build me. I chose the latter and journeyed through the process. In some of the religions that I'm familiar with, suffering is a part of the human experience that leads to a spiritual awakening. That awakening is followed by a great reward. In the Bible for example, men like Job, Joseph, Daniel, Saul and the I...

Caregiving as a Mother

Never in a million years did I expect my son to have complications with his health and have developmental delays. However I can say that I was prepared that this would be a different ride from what I was use to dating back to his time in the womb. The featured image is titled "Differences". I painted it while I was 5 months pregnant with Legend. I could feel that he would be unique to the point that I would cry because I just couldn't explain what I felt to anyone. I still can't explain it to this day. Its a conversation only understood between me and God, just like this painting full of healing energy is. I remember when Legend got discharged from the hospital back in December. The nurses gave us all of this equipment and a quick tutorial on how to use it for Legend to feed through a NG ...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #15: Leave Your Comfort Zone

My big boy started school last month! I cried like a baby when I got to myself and realized that he was growing up. Junie soon faced challenges as he was making the adjustment to going to school everyday. Some days he was excited to go and on others there were tears. Whenever we would ask him why he cried he would say that he wanted to stay home. I would say, "But you can go and learn new things." He would reply, "But I like to learn with you and do school in my room (referring to his learning wall that I use for our homeschool lessons)." I would say, "You get to go and play with new friends and toys." His reply would follow, "I can just stay and play with you guys and play with my own toys." Reality set in that Jr. was afraid to leave his comfort zone despite the possibilities for growth ...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #14: Wound Care

Back in March when Legend had his g-button placement surgery we were instructed to clean it once a day and that it would heal in eight weeks. To my dismay when we went to the eight week checkup we learned that granulation (extra tissue) had formed around the site and it didn't look so great. It needed to be treated to get rid of it. It turned out that simply cleaning the g-button site once a day and waiting for time to pass wasn't enough to ensure optimal healing. While granulation tissue forming at the site is normal, it's not ideal and does need attention to keep from worsening. The nurse gave us two options to treat the excess tissue. One was to apply Granulotion four times a day for four days at a time until it was completely gone. The other option was to apply silver nitrate once to "...

Featured Painting: Visions of Freedom

This piece was inspired by the visions and dreams that I was having about my daughter, Freedom, back in August before she was conceived as well as the visions and dreams that I had of freedom in the literal sense too during that time. It was a time of intense healing and divine transformation. The month before the blog's theme was "Just Freedom all July." I had a hunch to do an internal cleanse of my mind, body, and spirit. Then I started “Sober September” where I gave up things that didn’t serve me anymore and carried that momentum on into the real Sober October, which was also the blog's theme for that month. I took that a step further into “No Toxins November” which I also blogged about. Before I could finish the month of November, I had a positive early pregnancy test. I knew this was ...

Spring is here, my favorite time of the year! I'm excited about this new month, "Abundant April" and all of the possibilities and opportunities that it holds. I can feel this powerful new moon in Aries in full effect and I'm taking full advantage of the productive and creative energies that it is bringing. The past 6 months have been challenging for me with learning of my new pregnancy, reality setting in that I would soon be a mother of 2 under age 2, my baby boy's recent diagnosis of a life threatening illness, having to rebuild myself once again after another battle with depression, and just trying to create balance while staying on top of things. While challenging it has been, my faith has also grown. I've become stronger, I've learned to ask for and receive help, and I've become a bet...

Purging

Last year I packed up a U-haul along with my family and started my whole life over. The life that I had put in work to achieve. I had a great job with salary pay and benefits. I had just earned a promotion and a certificate in Contract Management. I was even winning awards in my professional organization, Toastmasters. Shout out to my time in Toastmasters and all of the amazing people that I met by the way. That experience helped me get back comfortable doing public speaking which also led to me finding my voice again. On top of these things, my husband and I both had cars parked outside of our nice rental home that had more rooms than we needed. Yet still packing up that U-haul was the best decision that we could have ever made. My Higher Self was calling me to do more, calling me to do s...

Damn Drugs

I wrote this poem almost 2 years ago from a place of anger. I was angry seeing how drugs have and continue to destroy our communities. I was even angrier with the people in my life that use and how their actions effected me and those around them. This poem chilled in my notebook. Out of sight, out of mind right? Since then, I've edited and added to it. Now I can spit it from a place of love instead of bitterness. Since then I've healed. Damn Drugs Just this one time That hit you end up Chasing a lifetime Using up all lifelines The wealthy made it To profit off of Our ghetto losses While we wallow in debt To chase that hit Many soldiers have fallen Victim to the oppressor's poison Now living a life of disorder Daddies out the house And out on the streets Feening but can't bu...

Use What You Got

Where will I get the money to do this? When will I find the time to do it all? How will I get the resources that I need? Do any of these questions sound familiar to you? When God showed me the vision for my life I found myself asking all of the above on several occasions. Sometimes these thoughts creep back up on me when I find myself getting overwhelmed. Then I remember this, God will not give you a vision without providing all you need to bring it into fruition. I know it's not always so easy to just blindly trust when you can't see how things are going to work out, but one thing we can do is use what we have. Last month I really wanted to paint but I didn't have anymore canvases and all of my paint brushes were ruined. I needed to buy more supplies but my budget did not allow for me to...

The kind of joy that I can now experience after appreciating "Purpose in the Pain" and accepting that "After the Pain Comes Power". This past week was challenging for me but I continued to fight. I love the human experience. It has this way of humbling you and fortifying you all at the same time. I'm grateful that the Creator's plan is perfect.
