Books, What's New?

Virtual Book Tour

Last week concluded The Book of Corinthian’s virtual book tour and I must say that it was a success! It’s bittersweet that it has come to an end but definitely more sweet than bitter. I’m grateful that my new bestselling book has received more exposure and for the beautiful connections that I’ve made this month. While the first virtual tour has come to an end, the physical tour is being planned for this fall as I type. Here is a recap of the virtual tour along with links to check out the interviews!

Freedom is a Mindset

This past weekend Juneteenth was celebrated. Reason being, African Americans were not free in 1776 when America gained its independence. The same can be said about Juneteenth for my ancestors as well. My grandmother was born in the 1920's and she was still living on a plantation farm with her parent's former slave master's. I learned of this back in 2017 when I was writing my book The Book of Corinthian Chapter One: Beauty in the Bayou. This baffled me. I had a ton of questions. When did slaves in that part of Louisiana learn of their freedom? Why would they still live on a plantation if they were free? Come to find out, my great grandparents were told that they were free at some point later, I'm not sure of the exact date, but they still chose to stay where they were comfortable and work ...

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: 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 ...

Abundant April

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...

Benefits of Meditation

Benefits of Meditation

Somewhere in my childhood I adopted the belief that meditation was something mystical and that I should probably stay away from it. Maybe it was my vivid imagination, growing up in churches with strict rules, things I saw on TV, or a combination of the three. Whatever the reason was, I am so glad that I ditched this belief and decided to start practicing meditation two years ago. It changed my life drastically. I also believe that it helped save my life as well considering that before I started I couldn't see the end of my battle with postpartum depression and I had seriously contemplated suicide more than a few times. I'll admit I was a little intimated and felt overwhelmed about the idea of meditation because I didn't know where to start, if I would do it "right", or if I had the proper ...

The Rainbow

It's been raining off and on way more than usual here lately. My old self always hated rainy days for many reasons. I wouldn't so much as step outside for fresh air let alone go anywhere. Before I shaved my hair off, getting my hair wet was a no. Correction it was a hell no and that was for my permed hair and my natural hair. I would also sleep late and procrastinate when it came to doing anything productive. Now having a greater sense of awareness, I know the reason that I'm more affected by rainy weather is because I'm an empath. I feel everything. I feel the hurt and the sorrow the rain washes away. I feel the procrastination, laziness, and sadness that others have too regarding rainy days. Now that I know this, I use rainy days to heal. I use them to cry. I use them to wash away the so...

Be Bold, Take That Leap

What if you had enough faith to move mountains What if you believed that you could do anything and that every obstacle is insurmountable What if you were as confident in your ability to succeed as you are in the possibility to fail What if you believed that you could have heaven on earth the same way that you fear being damned to hell What if your next invention catches on like the newly invented light bulb What if you choose to see yourself with the same eyes as the Creator does What if you just turn your light on What if you knew that you've already won Before you took form in your mother's womb What if you stop seeking worldly validation and go and do what you were called to do Go ahead, you got this I promise And if you start doubting yourself look up a...

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...

August is all about authenticity, being who you are unapologetically. That is always enough. Here is an affirmation for this month: Today I am making the choice to honor the Divine by honoring who I truly am. I am accepting that it's okay to be my authentic self. Despite what I've been told or what I've believed about myself in the past, I can be me without conforming to society's expectations. I can reclaim my identity today. I can believe that I am beautiful on the inside and on the outside. No matter what has happened to me, I can heal and transform. I am owning my power.

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...

Provision

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.

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...

The featured image in this post is the top photo on my calendar for the month of July. It reads, "God wants you well and free". I believe that, I receive that, and I can appreciate this shift towards more freedom that I've been feeling lately. Here is my affirmative prayer for this month: I am free to live the abundant life that God wants me to live I am free to love and I am free to give I am free to express myself creatively I am free to embrace the real me I am free to be my highest version indefinitely I am free to honor my divinity I am free to experience all of the love Of the Universe Corinthian Elizabeth ”All That is Love” The Book of Corinthian
Just Ask

Just Ask

What if I told you that the Creator wants the very best for you? Would you believe me? Or would you just settle? Thing is you must "make your request known unto God" (Philipians 4:6) and believe that it's already yours. Whenever my son asks me for something (that won't harm him or anyone else) I make sure to get it if I don't already have it. When my baby cries I make sure to respond with what he needs the best I can. I'm often reminded of the Creator's love through parenting. The Creator of the Universe has access to all things in abundance. That abundance is our birthright. Surely we can ask for what we desire and trust that we shall receive it if it's in alignment with the Divine Will. "And this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask anything according to his will, he he...

Silence

Silence

I’ve seen this meme before floating around the internet that says something like, “Sometimes I wish that God would just come and sit on my bed and tell me exactly what to do.” That’s easier said than done. God is always speaking but we aren’t always listening. We all have the ability to tune into our intuition or our Higher Self to receive the answers that we need. We can do this by getting still, meditating, or incorporating more silence into our days. We also have to be open to whichever way the answers come. Trust that they will come and watch them appear. Here is today’s affirmation: Today I am sitting still and tuning in to my Higher Self, the part of me that is aligned with Spirit and hears the voice of God clearly. I am trusting the Divine guidance and I am willing to serve with ...

My Soul Teacher Lesson #2: Get Free

My husband was holding our baby boy a few days ago and he made the observation, "He still hasn't stretched his legs all the way out." My husband tried to hold baby boy away from his body to help him stretch his legs out. His legs stretched a little but quickly curled back up. My baby's legs had been curled since he began to outgrow my womb. This limited the movements that he could make signaling that his days were coming to an end in the womb and he would soon be entering the physical realm. Now that he's out of the small space in my womb, he has plenty of room to stretch and experience new levels of freedom. Yet he's still comfortable curling his legs in and bending his knees. After observing and taking these moments in, I gained clarity on what I needed to receive.  My baby had grown ...
