Peace & Grace to you my lovely and beautiful ones…

I found the quote listed above written on a post it.  Having no clue how long ago I jotted it down, where I saw read it or how long ago, it was in plain sight of my view this morning.  Infinitely grateful for always staying tune and never ignoring when a message is being placed just for me at that specific “right now” time.  After attending a poetry family reunion with my siblings and returning back to my normal routine and life, I felt a bit weighed down.  Simply because when you have been in the company of nothing but positive energy, humble and sincere souls, those that honestly love you and see you and not the mention being in a realm of infectious inspiration, it is a bit difficult to leave it.  But we must return to our normal routines and to our lives.  On the other hand, when you are engulfed with so many pestilence attitudes and constant strife, it is a bit daunting to get back into that willingly.  But this morning when I found this quote, and allowed it to simmer within my inner woman.  We must be able to ride or stroll along in any weather as we travel and no matter the calmness or tumultuous effects in our midst, you must stay and be reminded of the intangible gifts that reside within and the uplifting spirit of those that see you and know that no matter what, you are someone who matters and never hide behind your situation and push, push, push on forward pass the pain, pass the strife, pass the pressures that those around you, that you must deal with and don’t allow it to dictate your spirits strength and determine your resilience.  Being in solitude can be sweet and at times can be just as solitary and you become consumed of your own obstacles, but you must remember you were chosen and selected for this time, for much as a  time as this to be amazing and be instrumental in what the Most High has placed within.  Never shelter yourself within your feelings…Continue to maturate within to truly see the depth of what this life brings and your assignment and determination to continuing pushing being the bright beam of light that you are.  Share that light in your words, your kind and random acts to and for others, show love, share your heart with a simple smile.  I met another me this weekend and I am so grateful for those appointed siblings that were and are placed within my life for a purpose.  Although you may be consumed with many storms focus on the calmness and sweet peace of light that soothes the atmosphere.

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

Peace & Grace to you my lovely Shugas…

You know jealousy is a crazy power that takes over the foolish and mindlessness ones.  It still baffles me why and how folks are soooooooooooooooooooooooooo incredibly envious and bleeding emerald green when the truth cuts them.  In fact what is totally redundant to me is the reasons known and unknown why those being lash at you with such hatred and animosity.  But I have found out instead of stopping to the levels of ignorance, it pays more in humility and growth to be the grander person and ignore it and be the better and wiser one.  After all, ignorance gets one nowhere and certainly, no foreigner inherits your birthright and the intangible aspect of the “you” you are.  You cannot be ignored temporarily but never erased and your worth is far wealthy than naysayers, dreamcrushers and ruin runners.  Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.  Love & Blessings, Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

Price PEACE of Mind

peace

Peace & grace to you beautiful and bountifully blessed ones…. I got to thinking of the value in the intangible medicinal aids we have access to and Shuga, Peace is at the top of the list.. You can always use more and the refill bucket is necessary depending on your life’s experiences and situations.

Peace is priceless. Peace is infinite when you remain in tune with the grace of the Almighty.  And the moment you consume peace and feast on it, there is no other dish that compares.  You will endlessly rsvp to be at the table to ingest a multitude of it sweet and tranquil buffet.  It can dwindle when life’s experiences throws curve balls but I am telling you once you retreat to the happy place in your mind and then back in your sacred spot, I’m telling you the joy you will have is beyond ahhhhhmazing.  PEACE of mind is far greater than “piece” of mind.

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

 

Properties of Healing the Heart & Mind

Peace & Grace to you my lovely and beautiful ones..

Once again, it’s a brand new day you are having the blessed pleasure to experience. The sounds of life in the tunes the birds sing as they travel from branch to branch.  Filling trees with multiplicative melodies of magnificence.  The scent of fresh blooming flowers that smile with each petal and even in the mist of the summer rains, we must give thanks for the sweet dew that is necessary for growth and for the marinating lubricant that sustains life.  So with all that being ingested give thanks.  In the good, the bad and even in the sometimes questionable, give thanks.  Someone had no opportunity to witness the beauty of life be it separation by cell blocks, hospital walls, asylum corridors or those in dark places who have n compass of which path to find the light in the path of persevering.

So I got to thinking of the ones that have and are experiencing a wounded heart and mental collision.  What am I speaking of.  It is simply my lovely ones.  Have you ever experience the breaking of your heart and although you reached a point, you thought you were pass the pain, but the sting is continual and the salt seems to still pour into your wombs.  I speak to those that are and have experience and mental collision when you reached that pivotal moment when you lost your mind or when you simply were overwhelmed mentally with life’s struggles and experiences, that you had no idea if you were going or coming.  Knew what your name was, who you were and where you were and simply didn’t and would care if they were offering free “save” cards for you upon declaring, “I need help”.  This life can present an array of occurrences and most you are not prepared for and some you simply are speechless and questionable of the simply question, “why me”  Well if this has been you or is in fact you, I am speaking to you.  You must reach that point when you simply have to choose are you willing to bandage your problems or rehabilitate yourself.  Upon instant thought, applying a dab of Neosporin and placing a bandage on it, seems simple.  But depending upon the complexity of your situation and how mush heart, mind and spirit is on the line and is now in limbo, much more may need to be prescribed.  In this situation the bandage would be first step to aiding the situation, identifying it and seeking help.  But once this is done, you must take the proper steps to continue healing.  Developing a system of overcoming your hurt and nursing and healing your wounds is the strategy of rehabilitating yourself.  Custom making the tools that aid in each area of your injuries and the complexity and level of treatment that is imperative to not only treating your wounds but spiritual strategy of healing and overcoming your hurt to have a testimony to others to strengthen others just like you.  Sharing your story and shedding the pain and guilt of your trials is healthy and therapeutic.  I have found out that when you walk around holding all that hurt it festers and harm your spirit and impairs you in more ways than it could ever be of help.  Shed the hurt just as dead scales and let them go.  Heal properly and productively and identify your sacred support system.  This should consist of select individuals that you trust and have a magnitude of spiritual knowledge and consciousness.  Be sure to keep the positive energy on the up and up in your circles.  No one ever healed with the “Negative Nancy’s” in their atmosphere.

I challenge you to heal and move forward and reach the point that you back and glimpse your scars and you are reminded of your strength and not succumbing to the struggle.

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

Sabotaging the Cynicism

Peace & Grace to each of you beautiful and bountiful blessed being..

Always be mindful that even when you are being a listening ear, to do just that.  Listen and allow it to bounce off.  Do not allow it to travel down your ear canal festering in your spirit.  You are not a trash receptacle for toxins that other carry nor are you a bench to carry their weight.  Continuously stay in tune with your inner spiritual man/woman to know when to shred and shed the unnecessary vices of negativity that attempt to linger in your realm, mind and or spirit.  Love & blessings to you, you, you and you, Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.

Simply Be You My Dear, I Ain’t Studdin To Be Like 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.

Flowing in Pure Purpose

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.
