There were hella great vibrations at the Atlanta Indie Market. It was so great to see so many people out there repping their brands and showcasing their talents and products. There were AMAZING food and drink vendors as well as poetry and musical performances. The Atlanta Indie Market takes place every 4th Saturday at 880 Woodrow St SW, Atlanta, Georgia! Go and support the community and small businesses!

At over 7 months pregnant and blessed, this will probably be my last event until after after Maya decides to venture earthside! I’m tired! I’ve been beating myself up for not getting pictures with my shoppers! I’m blaming it on pregnancy brain! 🤦🏾‍♀️Anyway! Thank you to all of the patrons that came by, shopped with me, and wished me love and success! Everyone was so beautiful and positive! Plus, I almost sold out of all of my crystals! Maya and I had a great time meeting some cool people and seeing some old faces! 😘

Listen Carefully

Picture

 

Months ago I received hella messages from all over telling me that I was going to undergo a transformation. Normally, I wouldn’t speak so candidly of my serious spiritual revelations. I don’t like to get too personal on the net… people have a habit of trying to dress me in their perceptions, but I don’t wear knock-offs.

Moving on.

Observation
 
There was a distinct universal message being transmitted to me from different sources, but first I had to open myself up to observe.

Picture

  • People –  friends, family, and strangers
  • Nature –  plants, crystals, animals, and etc.
  • Celestial bodies – the moon and the stars through astrology/astronomy

 

 

Observation is deeper than looking and seeing. Through alchemy seeing is reinvented as observation. Observation is far more intricate than seeing as it includes attention, learning, noticing, and perceiving. Through observation, you discover patterns. Patterns that can help you. Or hurt you. You may find patterns that you need to introduce into your life more. Or you may find patterns that you should eliminate from your life. There’s knowledge in patterns. If researching sacred geometry is one of your habits, then you already know this.
 
A habit that you should pick up is to observe the patterns in your life and decipher their code. Figure out if they help or harm you. Find the message. No, all messages aren’t told. Some have to be found because they are treasure. Limitless and infinite. Nonexpendable treasure. A gift so great is hidden deep. It is a reward. And it is yours. #GetTRIGGERED and go get it. 

 

Listen and Observe

How do you earn this ever so wondrous reward? You listen. And you listen carefully. Listen and observe. I titled this blog, Listen Carefully, because when we listen we hear everything. Listening, to me, requires more concentration. We can see a lot, but we’re not always observing. However, we hear everything around us. Our brain and spirit does on many levels. Whether you can recall everything you’ve heard depends on the reality you choose, but we always hear.
 
If you listen to the radio, then you know that if you are too far away from the satellite, or if too many stations cross signals, then you will hear static. It is the exact same with your life.
 
If you are too far away from your spirit, you will hear static. And if there are too many frequencies around you, especially ones that are not transmitting on the same level as you, then you will also hear static. Frequencies represent levels of energy (from people, places, and things). And static represents fear, anxiety, rampant/random emotions, and etc. I’m talking about straight-up distortion of the signal you really need to hear. The one that lives inside of you. The most honest signal. Your spirit. Tune into the right station. Turn down the stations with the most static. Listen Carefully.

The Big Message

So, what was that big message that I received? Align by design.

Being in alignment is much like being balanced. Life flows better when things are in order. Of course, everything is not always in order, but how you carry yourself during these periods is what you take with you.

​I found myself in some very harsh periods of change.

Transformation can be a Picturepainful process, but they’re messages in pain too. I asked myself why was I crying. What was the real reason behind my tears? A pattern. A trail of emotions dating back to who knows when. I saw patterns in conversations with people. I saw patterns in my finances. I saw patterns in my writing. I saw patterns in my hustle. And today, in this new month, I feel powerful. I am taking the new knowledge about myself, as well as, the knowledge about the people, places, and things around me and re-creating my reality.

I had to undergo a change, but in order to change, I had to find a catalyst. I only found it because I listened carefully for instructions and observed. I know what I am taking forward with me. And I am thankful for this transformation.
 
Align yourself by designing a new and better mindset that will allow you to do more observing and listening.

Be Intentional

intention

Be intentional.

Renew your purpose daily. Be transparent in what you want to achieve. Align your thoughts with your heart’s desires. Align your actions with your thoughts. And allow your spirit to guide the entire process.

Day to day we face emotional situations. One minute you’re up and the next you’re down, but somewhere in the mix there’s a part of us that want to constantly move on. It wants to constantly transcend. Your spirit doesn’t want to be bogged down. Your life source is fluid. Bending, flowing, and diffusing to higher potentials…

So, be intentional. Be intent in being spirit led.

Be intent in looking for the positives. Be intent on keeping your eye on what it is that you want. Because what you want is possible for you to have.

Intention & Effort

Your efforts will bring your intentions to life. ✨
Physical and mental exercises are the driving forces in sustaining an intention and manifesting your wants. One of my go to exercises is reciting mantras throughout the day. Mantras are words, statements, or sounds repeated to aid concentration in meditation. You can also use visualizations by forming a mental image of the intention.

Example:

Let’s say I my intention is to work out for the day. First, I must know that my intention is not merely exercising my body. Working out revives the body and improves my overall fitness. An increased fitness gives me more energy and with more energy I’ll feel better mentally. So, knowing this, throughout the day I may give my myself a constant reminder of my intention with a short mantra. “I will be healthier. I will be stronger. I will be fitter.” While reciting my mantra (aloud) I will visualize myself working out and feeling good. Once I add in a little will power, I’m working out in no time.

Speaking aloud is a physical exercise and visualizations are a mental exercises. Together, they make your words real and give the universe more access to help your intention manifest. You have to be persistent in your efforts in order to manifest your blessings.

Intentions and Openness
Be open. Don’t let should’ves, could’ves, would’ves, or your past unsuccessful efforts block you from manifesting the things you want now. It is not your intention to punish yourself or worry about how you will make it. It is your intention to have faith that everything will work out for the best…. Read More
be intentional - no worries

The Rose of Jericho

Picture

Dry, brittle, and dehydrated are the branches of the Rose of Jericho. To the unknowing eye, it looks like a curled up dead plant in the dry season. Like just another organism that failed to exist. Yet, the unknowing eye is wrong.

Picture

The symbolism of this flower is resilience

I speak about resilience a great deal. This is because I’m constantly reminded that it is a quality that is needed for my survival. Coasting in life is easy when things are happening according to planned. We don’t question our survival. We bloom. Happy with our water, soil, and glorious sunlight. But when we feel like we’ve lost control of our situation, which is something we’re really never in control of in the first place, we tend to question our survival.

What about when the rainfalls are too heavy, and your soil is saturated with water. Your roots can’t take in anymore. Or strong winds knock you over, uproot you, and you’re tumbling to an unknown place. What happens if you end up in the desert? Blown around by hot air and sand. Drained by the sun. Scorched and in desiccation.

Picture

The unforetold circumstances of life can and will topple us. They will push us to our absolute limits. However, there is one act in life of which we always maintain control. That is the decision to quit or fight through.

​In this garden of life, I choose to be a Rose of Jericho. A flower than can withstand being buried by desert sands for decades. And when the dunes blow away and unearth this plant, it rides the winds in hopes of reaching a desert oasis or feeling the desert rain. Then it can once again bloom and spread its seeds to create more resilient life.

 

​I know my trials are not over and there are more obstacles ahead, but I am thankful for finding the desert rain. I am happy that while I ventured through a dry patch in my life I was able to see that love from the people around me was my true oasis. Not a mirage or a hallucination. Real love from real people. Now, it is time that I usher in new resilient life.

 

Take me to the water.
