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 "...

I AM Mother Earth

I am Mother Earth  Skin smoothly Resembling the dirt  Salt of the land  Slick as sand  Soil thrown   Strength is born  From the dust I emerge  Admire these features  Imperfect symmetry  The laziness in my left eye  Reminds me to embrace my creativity  Slanted eyes that see truth  Small ears  Yet still I hear Spirit  Full lips to speak with purpose  Wide nose taking in scents  Of this surface  I now realize my worth  I am Mother Earth    Drawing by Robert Williams

Dues in December

This year has come and it has gone by Now is a time for me to appreciate the light As I reflect on all that I've overcome And everything that I've accomplished I'm in a better place from where I started eleven months ago God promised that I would be If I would let the journey unfold So much has changed And the new has been birthed I championed through each trial With each lesson proving to be well worth it Now I'm taking some time to look back And reevaluate my decisions With the intention of gaining more clarity On bringing my vision into fruition I'm processing my emotions And letting go of the past While cherishing each moment Both the good and the bad For what is to come is better Than anything that I've ever seen I am setting new intentions To pursue my dreams ...

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...

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...

Authenticity All August

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.

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...

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.
