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 & Grace my lovely and beautiful ones… Post eclipse I must say I am still yet grateful for the gift of life and opportunity to be something great and do something amazing. Although the astonishment of the universe’s scene of amazement in the sky may symbolize many things in different purposes, I still yet simply just give thanks. We must not get so caught up in the hype and commercialized aspect of moments. But rather embrace the priceless moments that cannot be replicated nor the moment of witnesses a majestic move of our Creator. As I stood on the porch with my mom, we traded the eclipse eyewear and just continuously smiled at each other, gave thanks for not counting it robbery to ignore such a scene and locked into the atmosphere of shift. We must continue to live and abolish mere existing and just as the sweet breath that was blown into our shells, we must Live! Live! Live! Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.

In this life, you endure so many flavors and many climates. From bitter to sweet, cold windy chills to warm steamy afternoons. But regardless just as the world continues to turn and the clock continues to tick, life continues to flow. Folks will talk high and low of you. Of what you do and don’t do, but you must reach that platform when you simply don’t care and become totally people free. The old saying sticks and stone can break my bones but words can never hurt me is a myth. Contrary to that cliché, words can permeate your very soul and can wound you to the core. But when you reach the stage of true resilience and care none at all Shuga, life becomes so exhilarating and like my dear brother says, “liberated baby”. A sweet friend of mine shared this song and the lyrics just rumbled a marathon of truth and awareness to me. “Some Kind of Way” by Jidenna is indeed a song truth and testament of living “your” life with no guidelines from others. So celebrate your uniqueness, your eclecticism and your perfect imperfections. Dance through your office prior to work day or dance through your entire house alone. Have a party with yourself, just because there is simply one you and no matter how they hate, attempt to replicate you or question, you let em kick rocks and love the “you” that you are.
Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you, Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
Take a listen and lubricate your ears with this tune.

So in the midst of my morning routine I got to thinking how we must train our minds to follow protocol to that which is necessary to our mind, body and spirit. Just as wee ones, little children we are programmed that in the morning you wash up, brush your teeth, have your breakfast and thus your day begins… Then you have night time routine of finish your chores, do your homework and say your prayers and off the sleepville you go. It is important that we maintain these same principles in the continual cycle of adulthood. Only difference is, you must customize the practices you apply and do it like clockwork that it had to be done in order for you to accurately and successfully flow with your day.
With an array of schedules and to do task that build by the second we sometimes get off track or skip a beat. But what I have found to be the balance is when you lock into that routine it sets the pace and tone of your mental and emotional reaction to the occurrences of your day as they play out of life’s big screen. Soooooooooo I encourage you to strategize an active prayer life, rather you get on your knees, or pray in bed, or scripts prayers at night in a prayer journal or simply just roam around your house having an open conversation with GOD like you are speaking to a homegirl or homeboy. Map out some quiet time just to soak up the essence of sweet solitude. Meditate and rest your body and still your mind. For most this is a tedium task as we are on go mode so much we neglect to just rest. Still your mind and shut the power off and let all thoughts slowly run out and through your fingers, freeing you of worry, deadlines, to-do’s and etc. Listen to your breath and feel your heart beat. Now smile and thank GOD for that right there, that’s life and he is blowing your being with “life.” Now as you continue breathing any morsel of worry blow it out as if you are blowing out a fire quietly. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… Take some time to sip on some tea and let the healing herbs lubricate you. Listen to your favorite record or cd and dance freely and live in that moment. This is becoming one with self, enjoying self and loving self…
Upon customizing your routine, begin to do it daily and don’t beat yourself up if you skip a beat, it has to be learned before mastered. Also just as you pray and prepare yourself to start your day and step outside your home, just as you wash your hands before breaking bread, keep your mind and spirit cleansed to be in tune and to flow consciously and intuitively. In every simple task is a lesson, just embrace the blessing of truly innerstanding the grand concept and lesson that is being taught.
Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
Peace & Grace My Lovely & Beautiful Ones…
So, there has been a scriptCATION because I haven’t been able to blog lately, but trust me on lovely ones, the delay is always worth it. Much has occurred since my last post, but here I am still yet grateful and thankful for life’s blessings and miraculous move on my behalf and for others around me. We sometimes must conduct self-analysis our own selves and check ourselves. Just because there are familiar situations you may have experienced and aspects you feel you have experience with does not necessarily make you a master. It tags you as experienced. But the true wise one will take each experience and learn something greater and deeper each time. Redemption is a common aspect, tem even that we are knowledgeable of, BUT Shuga until you truly go through the treacherous trails and dark routes and shaky bridges that this life sometimes presents, you truly “inner”stand the full definitive of being redeemed and redemption. It can be sweet and rewarding at the end, but the process like any other tedium journey present obstacles, test of faith and the structure and strength of your character, but oh my goodness gracious, the priceless and astounding plethora of joy when you overcome what could have broke you and stand tall looking at the valleys you crawled from, I am telling you, “Shuga”, you have matriculate to greater and grander. And so the lessons continue and learn, yield and ingest you must. Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones,
Please accept my apologies in the delay of posting. I never want to just post anything, it has to come deep from within and not only speak to you but must also speak to me as well.. Scripting from the spirit is not only healing but it is a release of expressing that flows through my fingers the Most High intricately places together. Words that speak life and truth and that will also lubricate your mind to be a better you and to embrace the “you” you truly are within. With that being said, we must stay true to ourselves and love the skin that we are in. There is only one you and even if you are a twin, your makeup still differs in some ways. Be grateful for the curve in your toe or your widow’s peak on your hairline. It is most likely a trait of an ancestor. Use it as a reminder that you are not just you, but you represent a people and legacy. When you unseal your lips to speak, speak life and speak with light. Although the crests of life can sometime carousel up and down and different tempos, you must simply strap up with faith, grace, mercy and all confidence of divine covering that you will flow the waves of life come what may.
Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
Great tunes to lubricate your ears and soul…
Peace & Grace to you my lovely and beautiful ones….
We must never ignore the mere important factor of life and living. We sometimes indirectly get entangled in the loops, swirls and tug of war that routine and life’s situations brings us. BUT we must never ever ignore the important of simply “living”. This thing called “life” is so precious and just as breath being carefully and intricately blown in that shell of your mortal body, it can be swiftly or gradually taken away. I have a vision of a goldfish when it’s taken from the bowl. He gasps and his gills are moving and constricting for air for that moisture and struggles to find that sweet pleasure of breath. If he is not quickly placed back in, he flips around and gradually inhales and exhales slowly and as that tempo declines he succumbs. But if he is placed in that water in time, we just whisp right along with the waves of the water and flows in his motion. For that pure motion, give thanks. The tempos may vary at times and sometimes that dry air and constriction to push through may be a tedium journey, but just push through to swift through the great bowl of life and living… Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.
