Conscious Manifest

Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, The Great Awakening 2016, Transformation

Creating from the depths of Being, empowered by creative intelligence.
One of the keys to conscious manifestation is to be anchored in Presence—the feeling of “I am”—and our only true source of fulfillment. When we are connected with Presence, we create from a place of joy, appreciation, and sufficiency.Conscious manifestation differs from manifesting from the ego in some very important ways:

  • When we manifest from ego, we tend to have a feeling of lack and scarcity. With conscious manifestation, we create from a feeling of abundance, rooted in the fullness and richness of the present moment (Eckhart describes this as being “in touch with the Gold”).
  • When we manifest from ego, we tend to ask “How can I get what I want?” With conscious manifestation, we ask “What does the universe want from me?”
  • ​When we manifest from ego, we rely on our personal willpower. With conscious manifestation, we are able to rely on the power of universal intelligence.
  • ​​When we manifest from ego, we often have negative thoughts and doubts when we encounter obstacles. With conscious manifestation, when we encounter obstacles, we look at situations wisely and see what’s possible.

The universe loves to create. When we learn how to consciously manifest, we become vehicles of creative intelligence.

The Empowered Woman

Chronicle the Black Woman's Rise, Empowered Woman, The Great Awakening 2016, Womanist Empowerment

*She Takes Responsibility For Her Life

An empowered woman knows that to own your power, you have to own your sh*t. She is continually healing, learning and growing at all times. She uncovers and heals the fears, wounds, sabotaging patterns, and limiting beliefs and that have held her back. She heals her past wounds because she knows that if she doesn’t, she will continue recreating them. She releases unhealthy patterns from her lineage. She questions the subconscious societal narratives that have limited the role of ‘Woman’ in the world.

*She Makes Her Own Rules

Empowered women know that they are are the authors of their own experience. When you heal and clear old beliefs, programs and patterns that are not your highest truth, you make room for what is.

Embodiment: Decide who you want to be and what you want to create in the world. Know that you are worthy of having all your desire. Know that it is your birthright to be prosperous, in vibrant health and be surrounded by love. It is your birthright to live in a free, peaceful and thriving world. Women know how to create this, we just need to believe it first. Don’t forget that we are Creatrixes, Life Givers, and that we have the power of Creation in our wombs. Use it.

Technology and Me

Interfaced with Technology
I am at home on my computer.
Whether it be a smart phone or an iPad.
It is an extension of me.
My thoughts, my action and my words are stored somewhere in
Virtual Reality.
As if someone is watching me and sending all that
I think and write.
Some look at Facebook as snooping.
I look past the most obvious
Into my own Law of Attraction.
Everything I speak into existence
Show up in my world.
There is no boogie man creeping up behind me.
I make causes with my thoughts, actions and words.
Like a boomerang it comes back to me.
As I take it into my awareness
It becomes my experience.
No one can tell me how to relate.
If it causes me trepidation
I can just let it pass by.
Like watching a wave
Rise to a crescendo
Then fall back into the ocean floor.
We are moving beyond the obvious.
Seeing clearer and deeper into the ocean.
All the marvelous and wonderful creatures
Live deep in the Sea.

Intuition

HEART-BASED INTELLIGENCE

Attributes: courage, compassion, and communication.

The intelligence in the heart encourages us to adopt the practice of courage, compassion, and care and use them to communicate and connect with all other life forms in our environment. It guides us to what is appropriate to say or do in moments of need and allows us to connect and communicate in often unspoken ways and to bond with people, animals, and places in ways that cannot be described by words or rational thought. This center of wisdom prompts us to ask the questions, such as: “Is my life filled with beauty? Do I love what I do? How can I discover my joy? What would I do if I were not afraid? Am I bringing the best of myself to my life and the world?”

VISIONARY POWER

Attributes: imagination, visionary certainty, and creative possibility.

The third level of intuitive intelligence is found in the mystical and often misunderstood power of extrasensory perception (ESP), expanded spiritual vision, lucid dreaming and other elevated psychic events. This is the level of intuition where extraordinary solutions, alternate ways of doing things, and groundbreaking new ideas are commonplace. When this center of wisdom is active it guides us to ask questions such as: “What do I see as a solution or possibility? Is there something I am overlooking? What dreams do I have for my future that I haven’t given myself permission to make into reality?”

The other night while driving home from Sea World, with my daughter in the passenger seat and four grands in the back a feeling overcame me and wanted to drag me under.

It was like swimming on the surface of the ocean as wave upon wave tossed and pulled me under. I allowed the wave to smash into me and felt the full power and grasped for a quick breath.

But first, back to the reason I was driving at night. I didn’t sleep well and I even wanted to stay in bed. But it was Camden and Grey’s Sixth birthday celebration. So I agreed

With coffee in my system and a warm shower on my face, I changed my frame of mind and looked forward to the day.

My daughter drove. Even though I am a morning person and would have preferred to drive first. The drive home was decided for me.

As I walked into my daughters bedroom a few hours before we were to leave Cailin replied. “Let Mumsil drive. “ Keshia in a matter of fact stated, I’ll drive in the morning, Mother will drive us home.

Sea World was a wonderful experience. I felt like a little girl as Rylie, Cailin and myself rode the coasters and screamed our heads off.

After a day long adventure I got behind the driver seat and began to drive home.

As I merged onto the ramp darkness began to  surround me. I looked at the oncoming bright lights and started to shiver.

Anxiety gripped my mind. Suddenly I did not think  I could navigate successful on the highway. I thought I would crash.

Irrational thoughts flooded my mind. I’m not sure where they came from. I’ve driven a car on the highways at night many times before.

I grabbed the steering wheel, sat up straight and looked over at my daughter. Just ten minutes earlier she asked if I was ok.

Feeling a little shaky, but told her everything was ok. Not wanting her to assume the heavy burden of driving to and from Sea World.

I finally relented and told her of the feelings that were vying for control.

I pulled off the freeway and turned the wheel over to her. My mind began to process the swirling feelings that had spun out of control.

There were many challenges facing me. I felt most of them were out of my control. No longer feeling the pressure of driving I started to talk. This was a sweet release. I emptied my belly of the stress. After that, we rode home in silence.

Sleeping late the next day, I had a full day to rest. The house was quiet. A dark moment to mediate. I realize that the constant emotion of anxiety had resurfaced.

When I feel I have no control over the situations in my life anxiety raises its head. The difference now I can process the feelings, see the truth of the situation, realize what I can control and let go of expectations, be at peace and release the feeling, like looking at a friend walk away, waving till she’s out of sight.

That powerful sentiment I received yesterday. A gift from the universe that was bestowed upon me. I graciously accepted and released the emotion not calling it my own.

Mindfulness Meditation

No Longer a Prisoner of Thought

As I stepped outside of my thoughts, I saw them as the thoughts of my culture, my father, my mother, those who lived in my immediate vicinity.

I started to cling less and less to the persona that I called my personality. With insight, i was free to be. I could understand my life and which way I need to go.

Mindfulness Meditation and quiet contemplation moved me to the next evolutionary shift that we humans must make.

It is the one thing that will push Humanity forward from this stuck-on maintaining the status quo.

I turned around and look directly at my life and saw that I could transform myself and meet the challenge before me. It has been my mission to transform education ever since I entered the arena in 1992.

After leaving my fulltime job as an educator in 2001, I  began to see the slow decline in Democracy that we see on a national level.

This loss of purpose is directly related to the decline of the educational function of schools as a vehicle to transform the life of the child.

Day 14
Mindfulness Journal

We’re here to transform the land.
From a waste land into the Buddha Land.

We’re here to fulfill a purpose.
A lifetime pursuit
To uncover
The diamond under the hard outer shell
We show to the world.

We’re here.
In time and space
To express the magnificent
Human potential.

People have discovered
A way to split the atom.
Build a powerful bomb.

It is within the inner recesses of life,
Where tremendous power reside.

Within the inner core.
Is a powerful force.
Invisible to the naked eye
That make it possible
For marvelous things.

When tapped into
Releases a power
That shape the mountains.
Fill the oceans.

Out in the middle of the sea.
A powerful vortex
Begins to spin.

Makes its way to land.
Devours anything in its path.

Within the inner recesses of life.
The fiery middle.

Like a volcano
Churns underneath the ground.

When the time is right
It blows.

A powerful thrust.
Hot lava is released.
Travels down the side and covers the land.

When you tap into the source,
“Put your finger on the pulse, feel the Rhythm of life”
You can experience this power of life.

Its not just for the super rich or movie star.
Athletes we pay money to see.

We cannot walk in their footpath.
We must make our own.

When you look up to someone,
Worship their experience.
You give up a big part of yourself.

You become powerless
To enact a memorable life.

At this time.
The ones who have the power,
Are abusing the right you gave up.

They are hell bent on
Nothing else but exploitation
The earths resources
Including
The Human Being.
You must become your own
Super Star.

Higher Ground

We are the protagonist
Writing the “Story of our Lives.”
With blood as the ink.
We fill the page with
Sweat and tears,
Carving a path
As we move across the surface of the Earth.

Seeing the footprint left by others,
We keep a watchful eye!
But proceeding along
An authentic experience.

With firm conviction
And a lofty goal,
Step gently on the ground.

Often the way seems uncertain.
But with an internal guide
Who has an expanded vision,
Gently step onto the path
Meant for self.

Not what mother or fathers wants for you
Nor the social position
Society expects of you.

Blaze a fiery path
That burns through
Obstacles in your path.

Neither turning around
Or going back,
Those footprints have long been covered over.

You move over the horizon.
To the top of the mountain.
Seeing clearly as you coast downhill.

Be prepared to scale
Mountain upon mountain
As life always moves towards…
Higher Ground.
