Which Way I Say


Peace & Grace to you beautiful beings……

Ever feel as if you are totally clueless to path for which “you” are to travel? Of course we all have been there.  Not only do we inquire within in what direction are we going, but also what are we taking, what is necessary for the trip and how much to pack of what.  What vehicle must I travel in or must I simply just take myself and bared naked soul to simply find myself and find my way as I tread.  These are just a smorgasbord of questions that come to mind while living this thing called –Life.  We must be mindful what we pack but also equally mindful to not carry baggage that we can’t afford to weigh us down while treading.  Because you are unaware of the conditions, pack consciously and attire yourself with wisdom and follow in the interior compass of spirit to guide you.  No matter what curve, turn, weather condition or condition of the road, be it gravel, mud, pavement or dirt.  Prepare for all conditions and equip yourself with courage, fearlessness and persistence to find what trail is meant specifically for me.

Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.


Transition of Truth                          


Peace & Grace my beautiful and precious ones…..

In the wake of so much going on in the atmosphere, but like, literally and in my own life, I searched for some type of message of enlightenment.  Yes my dear ones, desperately needing to reassure me that there certainly has to be some light and understanding arriving soon to what is total shambles.  Truth be told, sometimes you have got to give a little thanks for the shambles, why?,  because they directly force you to focus and tune in on another kind of “I got to get this together” type level.  Rather it be friends behaving as a foe, you questioning your worth and totally clueless of what path to choose and too what vehicle to pack with what necessities (metaphorically speaking now), because what you may think is a quick getaway, needs to be a vacating of your mind and spirit away from all that is polluting your realm. That fog of others baggage can begin to weigh you down quicker than you will know or can imagine.  Peacemaking it for others, being the empathetic soul, can bruise your statue within.  NO need to create aches within your core that are not even those woes of your own.  Let’s be real about it.  Truth speaks if only we listen.  You must lubricate yourself with wisdom and clarity and slide slowly into the transition of the truth of what phases you are currently experiencing.   This my precious ones, is, of course, easier said than done.  Application is a tedium task but necessary for your next step to grownDOM.

Growing pains, the elders spoke of quite frequently when I was growing up. However, as a young seedling, you thought of limbs growing and maturing as an adolescent, in your mind.  But those ligaments of lessons that endlessly bestow understanding of this life thing is indeed powerful.  Grabbing those nuggets that were shared with you even at the tender young ages, it is amazing how they resonate with you and you truly “inner”stand it for its purpose.  This journey called life is something interesting and you must cultivate a greater knowledge of tuning into the exquisite morsels that unveil themselves only when you are aware and ingest the flow of firmly placing your ears and minds to the Divine ones that truly speak and give guidance.  My lovely ones, please be encouraged and know that someone, somewhere is too, “going through” some rough patches as well, but you too can overcome any and all adversities with a resilience that only the Creator can mold of that raw form you be.

Love & Blessings to you, you and you.  Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.


Time discovers truth


Finding My Alright



Peace & Grace my beautiful and precious ones….

This life and its quite interesting episodes can play some head nodding, eye rolling and throw your hands up moments.  But, I must keep reminding myself that regardless, your/my “okay moment” doesn’t last forever.  So what am I saying????  Well my lovely ones, the “okay moment” is when you are between the storms and the neutral I have no idea what is going on and why is this happening to me moments.

In an endless appointment within my inner self, I searched for my own equatorial line- my balance.  Needing and desperately feening to see some light in some dark and dim situations, I begin to listen to some music.  You know sometimes the songs with the simplistic of lyrics, speak volumes in an array of directions the greatest magnitudes.  The song simply says, “It’s Alright” by one of my favorite artist Ledisi.  The great aspects of artistry and truly enjoying the gifts that one has,  is when you truly ingest those live performances and when they flow in much truth and with the flow of how they feel and pour up their personal situations to assure you, that they too, have struggles.  In the midst of listening, I kept reminding myself, “its alright, its ok”… Truth is, this song use to be my morning song to work.  Because no matter what the day would bring I would remember, “its alright, its ok”.  I speak encouragement to myself and to others who are constantly being tormented by those closest to you, being ridiculed by those on the outside trying to fiddle through the blinds of your life and attack you with words, lies and assumptions.  To those that are battling childhood injuries or verbal attacks, swings and punches that lurk in the deep corner of your mental apparatus, you too have survived and sometimes the salt can sting your wounds from the remembrance, but then you must continually say in heavy repetition, “its alight. Its ok”. Because regardless how deep the wound, how ugly the scar, you still are here and have an opportunity to heal, even if you must heal all over again on a different level. So find your source of instant uplifting to shift you back into the state of “I’m gonna be ok.” Be advised while “finding your alright” that you don’t become overwhelmed and slip, because the slippery effect of sliding backwards to the hurt is far more damaging than you can imagine.  My beautiful and lovely ones, be encouraged and remember no matter how it feels, trouble cannot last always.  Find the joy in something and allow it to saturate you with a comfort of safety and balance.

Love & Blessings to each you, you, you and you.  Monique “1MOPoeticSOUL”D.


Psalm of the Oracles


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.

When You Must, Gotta & Betta Replenish YaSOUL


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…

Evolving Eminently



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.

Acclimate Balance of Betterment




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.
