Peace & Grace my precious and beautiful Shugas…..
It is simply ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhmazing how the spirit of the humble elders exude such a dynamic yet meek aura. The spirit that lives within your inner most being most definitely speaks volumes and not one word has to be uttered. I had the opportunity to assist and sit with an elder mother this past weekend. With all the ruckus and confusion in the midst with heightened emotions all in the mix, just being in the company of a sacred and sweet soul, cooled me as cucumbers and with the right amount of sweetness as a glass of southern wine as I call it, known to most as sweet iced tea. In my mind I had to immediately give thanks and utter an internal thanks to my Maker because it was her sweet delicate yet wise spirit that brought a peaceful calmness upon me and I knew it was Divine in all its ways. Give thanks for consciousness and awareness to recognize when to obey and flow in the realm of the Almighty ingesting the Divine lessons. Endless mounds of blessings I pray among our elders that still share these realms of living with us on these earth lands and for instilling a wealth and richness into our very sense of being, thinking and flowing.
Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
Peace & Grace to each of you my lovely and precious Shugas….
Alright my lovely and precious blessed Shuga, here’s a morsel of momentum for you.. Sometimes you have to willingly and freely dip yourself into a pool positivism and pure purpose to saturate yourself with truth and wash off the foul funks of those people, situations and or realms that attempt to infiltrate your flow in gracious and most needed land of forwarDOM.. Yes, I said, “forwarDOM. The land of moving ahead and never treading back. Remember my Shugas you can never flow in the future with your foot stuck in quick sand sinking deep into the past. It’s mid-week and “hump” day as some say and ‘m sharing serving up some Wednesday Wisdom.
Love & Blessings to you, you and you… Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
Let Nina soothe those ears after you chew on those soul scripts above…
Peace & Grace to each of you my lovely and precious Shugas…
We all maturate at different paces in these life stages. NO book can predict when you will experience true love when you will finally do every day what give you pure joy, swallow the gist of what has been told to you for yearrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs. One must not fail to fall into the traps of planning life and attempt to sketch the life itinerary, because most times, you are lead down alternate routes and must travel some unfamiliar conditions that are all a part of your spirit structure and test of faith and fortitude. So take a moment to reflect on some wise words that were shared with you and lessons that were offered. Always be willing to sit at the feet of your elders and those that have experienced these life’s pages as you flip from chapter to chapter of -The Journey providing you with “gleaning nuggets. Never become drunkenness with knowing it all, you must be willing to listen and learn as a student and allow the teachers that the Most High places you in your life.
Growing and acknowledging your quirks and how to manage balance and too, applying correction to behaviors and mindsets and too routines that need tweaking. Continually check yourself Shugas,, take a personal inventory and assessment of yourself. Continually strive to be conscious and aware of your state of mind and spirit that drives you. No matter how much you evolve, always give thanks for those that can sincerely challenge you to be better. Sit at the feet of your elders and let the wisdom shower upon you and soak up the gracious goodness as wise ones speak. Walk deeper into your purpose and the eminent embrace of being the “you” you truly are to be.
Love & Blessings to you, you and you.. .Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL”D.
Peace & Grace to each of you my lovely and precious beings**
So I have always wondered what is the big deal with people jotting down bullet list and making grand announcements about new year’s resolutions and what they claim they will change and have in effect as soon as the glitter ball drops in time square that miraculously all the change is supposed to take place. Ha! Ha! So my question is who are you fooling or more importantly who do you think you are convincing, others or yourself? Hmm… Well, Shugas, I tell you I have become more grounded and seasoned in life and as the days stroll I continually ingest all the wisdom and see the truth of the matter. So I propose a question to you… Why script, proclaim and fool yourselves and others of sticking to these wishes and temporal resolutions?
I much rather end the year with a thank you for all the blessings and sacred evacuated paths from anything harmful to my wellbeing or my continual growth. Be grateful my precious beings for both the good and the bad that occurred throughout the year, because if you are still here on January 1 of a new year, you made it through. Count those blocks and remind yourself that you persisted and stacked them blocks as building blocks and did not allow them to stumble you. All that within you that needs to be filtered and too relinquished, do so. Rather it is a fast of your choosing and or a cleanse. Prepare your mind, body, and spirit for a new year and begin to think of what steps do you need put into place to create balance and a constant flow of synergy within your everyday routine. Declare those things and decree them and begin to give thanks for the better that shall come to pass. Be mindful not to fall into old habits or procrastination and let doubt creep into that which you are consciously and confidently pursuing your life and within your inner being. I had a chat with a fellow customer as I sat in the nail shop and a lady told her daughter, “Can’t never could and Won’t never would”. I asked her to repeat it… She did and replied to her I know you are telling your daughter this to give her a nugget about using the term can’t and being afraid. But ma’am, this is great advice for adults in many perspectives and I must make note of it… So see, you must always be ready to catch a lesson when it is being taught and apply it. So, what am I sharing this phrase with you for? To simply remind you as long as you do not display a cant don’t attitude, your outlook looks soooooooooooooo much brighter and clearer. Live in your truth and be transparent with the truth of what is. Take nothing for granted and use every moment to be used with the utmost of purpose.
Love & Blessings to you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
Peace & Grace My Lovely and Beautiful Ones… It is my hope that you have been embraced with the sweet grace of the Most High this season and gently warmed with the hugs of loved ones and that your cheeks perhaps ache a bit because you have been smiling and laughing with much joy and ingesting the greatest medicine of our Maker, laughter.
I got to thinking about the intangible gifts that we have and are endlessly blessed with. We spend precious moments of our lives and throughout the day sometimes on a routine basis, doing everything that is expected of us, needed of us, wanted for us and demanded of us. But during these past few months and certainly this season in which we are currently in, I got the greatest lesson. So read carefully and sip on this, because it is sure to steep your soul in some peace and gratefulness. The moment you finally find your happy and deleted all the points in your people-pleasing realm, sweet peace and pure joy floods your life. The process to getting to the peak of this mountain is a tedium journey and it is forever another level with higher heights, but each height you reach strengthens you and structures your core of who you truly and are destined to be. I admit I had been a bit worn and jaded from giving my all to everyone and no happy in my account and shunning “me” because I have zero selfish bones in my body and selflessness just comes naturally for me. But I decided to sip on some happy and I like the flavor and I have totally withdrawn from the people pleasing diet regiment and finally living totally for me.
Freedom, peace, and pure happiness are so grand, there is no box or bag that can carry it nor a wide enough bow to wrap it. That is the comfort of knowing that it is limitless my dears. And even as the day progresses, sit in some silence to reflect on simply “just being” and absorbing the sweetness that is accompanied by God’s blessings.
Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you… Spread some joy and then spread another dose and another and then sprinkle some in the atmosphere everywhere you tread. Leave an essence of peace and goodness for someone to soak up… Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones… Sometimes we must face our own selves and conduct a self-therapeutic session… Yesterday in a rush of emotions of all the occurrences going on around me in my family with friends and etc., I felt an overload and in the midst of hearing a song a dear friend share with me, I was filled with words and had to sit to her computer and script out my thoughts and release and I tell you. It was as if after the last word I typed, I could breathe. In hopes that this will challenge perhaps you to identify that which is attempting to plague your mind, body or soul or infact all three and your balance beam is titled, read this and I dare you to release and let go and simply see you and tap into that strength and peace within that keeps you sane. Enjoy..
So, we all must reach that appointed and pivotal point in life with the you that you truly are, at this present time to be true to yourself and be truthful with yourself and most of all be true and transparent with both myself/yourself and God. So, if I can’t hide from my Baba, why shield myself from my ownself. Guarding myself with robotical altitudes, its so ok to admit to my emotional infirmities and to sometimes just be in dismay and disgust and to simply purge… Cleanse this soul and mind and simply cleave to the peaceful peace and conform to only the proportions of clarity as they reveal themselves. Accept what is true and what is the truth and reality. At some times this may simply mean scripting as if my fingertips were matches lighting flames to my truths and testimonials. Script my soul free is all I know and what only gives me peace other than coversating with my creator-prayer. So, script I do. Some griot way before me was me and we were he she and him and her, there was a griot in some distant land scripting scribes and preaching sermons under trees and prophets telling of what only they and God can see. And so, I script and share just as they did and too singing psalms of proverbs dripping from my soul bearing this soul. I set my soul free and remind myself of simply praising in the gift to release, give thanks and to share and encourage all in the same breath of truth. And so, I give thanks for release and give constant thanks in fervent prayers of simply treading deeper into my truth. Ase` & Amen
Love & Blessings to you, you, and you. Monique “1MOpoetcSOUL” D.
Peace & Blessings you beautiful blessed being…
My sincerest regrets for such an extended time of absence from sharing with you. But my dear ones, it is imperative that sometimes you must step away from normalcy and commune with oneself. Much clarity and awakenings occur when you interrupt your life with a balance bulletin. With autumn or fall as some refer to it finally making its presence known in the atmosphere, the change has begun. I always found it strange that I was born in the spring, but autumn is my favorite season. Now while some think this is the appointed time to give thanks I disagree wholeheartedly. You must give thanks at all times. But the harvest season and season of change with all the hues of the earth reveal themselves. I got to thinking while driving this morning and gazing at some trees as they slowly leaned back or forth, all were green. And well with green being the color of life and vitality, it’s simple, they are living creations. But oh my, the miraculous truth unveils when those true hues begin to reveal their true species and originality. The concoction of browns, rust, golds, yellows, faded greens, and orange tones all are colors of the season which all come from the roots and earth which is black and brown. The roots are the lifelines of the forest and nature. Just as roots connect the lifeline of plants so do the veins and arteries in human and animal creations. Yet in summer, all is green – the season that I feel reminds us to live for the change that is approaching and what we must prepare ourselves for. So this season I challenge you to fall into a grander state of the you, you truly are designed to be. Ingest the spices of apples, oranges and cinnamon mulled with nutmeg and such. Delight in the savory sacrecy of comforting consciousness.
Love & Blessings to each of you my lovely Shugas.
