Peace & Grace my beautiful and precious ones….
The episodes of life bring such an array of cause and effect vs action and reaction of clauses we view quite often. The moment you reach that pivotal moment you truly indulge in self-love and acknowledgment that “you” matter and no one can be better to you than “you”, it is not always a welcome committee rallying behind you. Some friend shall show shades of green or in fact deep shaded of slate grey because the darkness hovers because they do not contribute to the light that you generate. Family may, in fact, question your loyalty and or question your purpose of being. As if you are placed on this earth to live for them. But oh my beloved Shugas, when you become people free and choose to do you and live directly in your truth and I mean tread firmly in your truth, oh my the arrival of the Manipulative Motivators will show up to the scene. With no invite or rsvp, will appear on your purple carpet as if they were a special guess. So why purple carpet, because you’re royal Shuga. And keep your security tight because the silent saboteur will attempt to slip through the back door. So raise your awareness and consciousness to the lurking of the doubt that attempt to creep in and also the negative forces that some may inhabit and carry within their being. Staying in tune is imperative and you must not only guard your spirit, but your heart and your mind equally in these days. The resilience that is embedded with you, you must keep powered on and never allow it to go in sleep or rest mode. Remain in a place of truth within yourself that you can conduct self-analysis and assess your process and apply that which is necessary when it is necessary. Be not fooled by smiles and hugs for the fool wore smiles as he entertained for laughter, but his true identity is just what he is and attire he wears-a fool and foolish.
Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you

Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones…
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 to you My Beautiful & Lovely Ones….
Drama class and big top tents hosting circus acts are not the only venues of many faces. Happy faces, sad faces, confused faces, angry faces, blah faces, and well you get the picture… I got to thinking about your circles of friends and family. Me, myself, I am forever fine tuning my circle and seems like the older I get, the smaller my circle becomes. But my wisdom makes my circle more tightly intricate woven with each stitch and purpose in my life. And through the years or as the world has and will forever continue to turn the many faces that folks show to you and reveal more clearly who they truly are becomes quite evident. I got to thinking about the mirrors in the circus fun houses. As a child it’s fun and entertaining but as an adult the irony of those same mirrors are the perplex spirits of those folks elude through the shapes, sizes and images just as that mirror, irregular not unique. As you stroll along this big tent of life that walk can be filled with side show oddities, attractions of life altering abilities and talents. Be aware though of the clowns and costume attraction. Smiles are not always those that are sincere and with greetings and the costumes hide the truth temporary. Stay in tune and fine tune your circles and environments in which you mingle. Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSoul” D.
