Let Me Tell Ya Bout GROWTH

Standard

watering seedMy oh my, summer is definitely here. With all the classic thunderstorms.  Honestly it made me reflect on back in the day when thunderstorms came.  The house would be locked down and my grandparents made us sit still and said “y’all be quiet while the Lawd do his bizness”. Of course being child it felt like true punishment having to sit in silence, no tv, no radio, no talking, just to sit and listen to the rain and the thunder.. Oh my what a drag, I thought in my mind, because I dare not share this thought with them nor my mom or it would have been thunder on my butt. But I got to thinking this morning while laying in my bed. As I listened to the rain, and how much I love thunderstorms now, it’s the graestest soundtrack to sleep, relaxation and meditation for me now. Of course these storms come with rain and well rain equals moisture and that equals growth of all living things. So of course being the analytical and constant being strolling in ponderVILLE,  this thought was placed within me to share with you Shugas today.  Give thanks for your “GROWTH”.  As I found myself just running flashbacks of the past few years of my life, I bless the Most High for growth. It was the nutrients of positive beings within my inner circle that added the broth to my growth. It too was the fertilizer of spiritual consciousness and the urgency to discipline myself and to totally tune into the spirit realm and to rely on GOD and to walk strictly by FAITH. But and I do mean but, it was the rain, the rain of many tears cried that were all accounted for by my Master that I never became dry. All these components were of equal importance to my growth. And here I am but a seed from mere genesis, and my petals are blooming and quite colorful, but I am reminded of the process. Ahhhhhhhhhh yes the process. So Shugas I ask of you today, think of where you have been, how far you came from it, what you went through to get through it and where you going and how you moving forward to get there. What’s the broth in your fertilizer, the agents that now have you in bloom OR what is necessary for you to bloom and grow.  DO remember you must pluck those weeds and dry stems out as well. Hmmmm. Simmer on that a bit.

Until next time…

What Is YOUR Repellant For Negatve Nectar?

Standard

Peace & Grace To All You Beautiful Beings.. It’s a brand new weekend, one we have never seen before, but grateful to  and I do say grateful that we are above ground to witness it and know that we are here. So I got thinking what can I place into my Shugas for the weekend.  Well, you know this leaped from my mind and spirit very quickly.  We all experience and deal with folks all types of folks day to day rather it is verbal, written, in person or on the phone. Strangers and those we have known for years or perhaps even a lifetime. But what I have found out is no matter, what some of these people inhabit what I want to call negative nectar.  Yep I said it, and those that know me well, know I will and do come up with some metaphors that allows you to truly get the gist of where I am coming from.  It’s as if no matter if you are going through the greatest joys in your life, the greatest depression in your life or even the most confuddling moments in your life when you are but a question mark trying to decipher the when’s and wh’ys and how’s of life, they start stinging you with that negative nectar. SO you ask, what is negative nectar and here it is: anything  that is injected into your mind, spirit of your realm that is bad.  Just as mosquitoes messing up a good evening  picnic not in the woods. The weather is lovely, the breeze is sweet, the food is great then here they come, biting people. Just sucking up all your greatness away, sucking you dry. But my Shugas it is up to you how and what repellant you use. Tune it out.  You know on the inside of your mental start singing, “there might be bugs on some of you mugs but there ain’t no bugs on me” or the revised version to apply to this situation, “ there might be bites on some of your arms (foots, legs and necks) BUT there ain’t no bites on me. It may even be you listening to them, but whispering a prayer, like “lawd don’t let this nectar spoil my joy, let it stay right over there in that puff of smog that’s polluting this air. So for this weekend and week ahead when you feel the negative nectar about to sting you, honey spray up guard with positivity and a shield of protection from chaos and drama and etc. and etc. Y’all be safe this weekend and encourage someone along the way, smile at someone just to spread some silent joy. It cost nothing to smile.

Until next time….

Peace & Grace

Just a SpoonFULL of Sugar

spoon of sugar

Peace & Grace Beautiful Beings,

I am so hoping that all is well with you this great morning.  You know it is so amusing to me how the Most High brings sometimes the funniest littlest things to your mind to make you smile while at the same time, allowing you to see the sweet simplicity of clarity. I got to thinking about the song on the old Disney Classic, “Mary Poppins”. Those  of this era probably are thinking, “who” while the rest of us are like “oh supercalafradgalisticespialodoucious”.. YES, hunnies, I spelled it out, but the song “Spoonfull of Sugar” got me to thinking,, You know sometimes you gotta go through some wars, some storms and funky stuff and some ole so bitter stuff to simply get to the sweet.  Take a look at this clip and think on it.  So lovelies, I challenge you to find the sweetness even in a somewhat salty or bitter situation and watch how much different the process and wiser the perspective of clarity that becomes apparent. Trust you will  find yourself looking, like, “Ahhhhhhhhh”.

Until next time….

Peace & Grace

Take a look at the video below and surely if Mary could get the point across to these inquisitive chaps, surely we get the message if we pause to think on it.. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.. 🙂

Now Tell Me, What’s In Your Recipe?

Peace & Blessings Beautiful Beings. It is a brand new day.  If you are breathing, reading this and know who you are I dare you to pause for a moment, and just say I give thanks for life…. Yaaaaaaaass,,oh yas. Now in my somewhat pondering stage I was wondering now what could I say my sistren an brethren today.. After something being brought to my attention in a conversation from a fellow sistren accompanied with some rest, and time for the Most High to place something within me to script this came to mind.  So, I got to thinking about an exercise I did with my sister circle as I feel it will be an ongoing activity to continually fine tune us. The question proposed is this,….”What is in your recipe? Recipe, you say, of what cake, what dish, perhaps even what drink are speaking of.. But, aha, what are the ingredients that formulate your makeup, your individual makeup. The good, the bad, the sweet, the sour, the salty and bitter. Now first and foremost you must be truthful when jotting down your recipe. And of course this not something that can be done overnight because it is for you to look deeply from the outside to within to the deepest depths of you. Yaaaaaaaaaaaas, oh yassss.. So, here we go.. I have two questions for you would your recipe be made from scratch or prepackaged? Of course if is from scratch you are well aware that extra steps are involved and there is no right or wrong way, you are in total control of the flavors, the consistencies, the flow and feel of the process. For example, with a cake, you must tow bowls, a wet bowl for wet ingredients and a dry bowl for all your dry ingredients. One has to build each bowl separately in a certain process before bringing the two sets of ingredients together.  You can add a pinch of this or pinch of that, eyeball your measurements and such. However, with a previously packaged box of contents for a dish, most likely you may just add water, oil, a few eggs here and there and butter a pan.  All steps have to be followed exactly as they appear and in the order listed on the box. So with that in mind, take few minutes to figure out your style of recipe and what components make you the “you, you are. What are the measurements are the precise or eyeballed? There is no right or wrong way it is simply an application for you to know you honestly with no bells, no whistles, the hardcore truth. DO you add a cup of determination and a few drops of procrastination  in your mix? DO you stir in heaps of love? OR do you add equal parts of love compassion and sprinkles of tough love? SO you see where I am going with this? Okay now that you have the tools, script your ingredients, of course they are the intangible(s) of you. The characteristics, good and bad and neutral. The process is of course the way you deal with your life and living. Are you a soup, are you a entrée, are a drink or are you an entire meal. My lovely shuga’s take the time to try this and embrace your recipe and remember as long as you live you can continually enhance it and also revise the recipe.

Until next time….

Peace & Grace

Let Yo Light Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine Honey

Standard

oil lampPeace & Grace Beautiful Beings,

Here is your early evening dose of MOmentum.  I got to thinking about a light dimmer and how it ranges from multiple dark and very bringht shades. And of course me, the super anlaytical soul I am, I got to thinking about an old oil lamp. So we know they are used as light necessities in the good ole days, but also I got to thinking that throughout history many used these same lmaps to light some dark and dim paths along the way when traveling. So, what is life but a journey , and sometimes, we have no roadmaps, no signes, but we must tune into that voice within as the compass and use that internal lamp to guide us.  Well my dear sistren and bretheren,  of course dark hours of life do arrive rather we are ready or not, and even the dim moments you must activate your light. I’m thinking with this old soul wisdom I got on the inside hey, why not share some insight as it was placed within me to share. Follow these simple steps below and I promise you the path won’t be soooooooooooo dark and you will be able to view your direction and the condition of your path much more easier…

Steps To Letting Your Light  Shine

  1. The light within is “within” but isn’t active until the connection is made with the Divine
  2. Identify what components are your oil to place in your lamp. Hobbies that bring you joy a book, long drive, piece of chocolate, crocheting a scarf or blessing someone just because-with no string attached.
  3. The strength of your light(the watts) so to speak, the folks you surround yourself with and environment your place your self within. BUT and I do say BUT, remember you can change the tone with your presence as well.
  4. Love on yaself. Embark on some “me-time”. Liten to what your heart, mind and spirit say to you as they chat to your soul.
  5. Last but not least, look forward. You cannot hit play if you are always in rewind.

My family if you do these simple steps, you have lit your path. Now you can see Honey!!!

Until next time,

Peace & Grace

“Don’t Rush The Turtle”

Standard

Peace & Grace Beuatiful Beings, 

It is simply amazing how the Beloved Father uses those littel things to allow you to get the greater picture of – Life and Living. On my way to Sunday service as I’m going down the road, saw a little turtle crossing over the road like the little engine that could. As vehicles were passing by at top speed this little turtle crawled as fast as his short yet slow legs could carry him to the other side, and no matter which trucks cars, even the early morning wind, he kept on and got across the raod.. I thought to myself, God you are amazing, Because if you can allow that toddler turle to get across that road and persist until getting safely cross that road, unharmd, we has beings, spritiual beings gotta trust you and persist to the other side. From all the inquiries of life and wonder of life itself and the what ifs, shoulda coulda woulds and why me and what now Lawd, he jsut wants us to to depend on him and he will get us through the fear, doubt, questionable and the sometimes turbulent occurences of how, whens and whys to just keep pushing or as my Sissy says , “Just keep swimming mama, just keep swimming.. I hear my Mama saying, keeping going forward and listening to God baby, and to that inner voice ringin in my belly’s ear, “keep pushing forward, move on… So I say to you my sisteren and brethern, persist, move forward and the hardest task are that, but with humlity, peace and guidance from the Creator, the task and outcome is sooooooooooooo sweet and relaxing.. So crawl on, and sometimes it takes time to get to the other side, but no matter the time, our time isnt’t “his” time, so we must ingest patience infintiely. The turtle  kept on crawling and so can you…. 

Peace & Blessings

Peace & Grace

Much Love to each of you….Image
