Day 6
Mindfulness Journal
At Home in Nature

A retreat into the vast inner realm of life.
There you’ll find an ocean of possibilities.
An acre of Greenland stretching out in front of you.

In the air a breeze of jasmine.
Sounds prick your earlobes with a sweet lullaby.

You go in a little deeper.
As if passing through the doorway cleanses your heart.

To its’ purest form.
You are like a baby,
Alive to everything around you.

A calm settles over you
Like a warm and soft blanket.
That blocks out the darkness
That you have carried for a lifetime.

Such a sweet release.

Your body a little lighter.
Each step a careful maneuver
Onto the soft wet grass.
Small strands tickle your toes.

You are at Home.
A slight wink from the sun
Opens your heart.

Filling you completely.
Joy seep out of your pores
As a profuse sweat.

Light surrounds you
You are loved and protected
In the arms of Mother Nature.

Day 2
Journey into Mindfulness                                                                                                           A Different Perspective of Fear!

Fear, the immobilizer
Grips the Mind.
Floods the senses with panic.

Your heart races,
The Mind
All manners of harm.

You have lost all control.

We humans
With an ancestry DNA
Feel the fear
Of long ago.

Which has been passed down
Through your genes.

Like a monkey
Trapped in a corner
He senses danger
When the
Lion is out on the prowl..

Mindfully looking at fear
With a different perspective
Brings a mindful response.

There is nothing good or bad
But thinking
Makes is so…

A Spiritual Transformation

We are an extension of the source.

A force that aligns with!

A part of the Human Family

An unbroken chain.

Since time beginning

An invisible force

Molecules hover across ,

A vortex

Pulling intentions

In it’s wake.

Awake to your wonderous life!




Of a New World

Spinning on an invisible axis

Believe in the Magic of

Your Life.

Embrace The Way

Embrace the Way

During my morning meditation,

I lay underneath my blankets.

Breath enters through my nose,

And exit by way of my mouth.

Cucumbers refresh my eyes.

My mind is akin to…

Fast roadways roaming,

Thru mid-morning trade.

My life stretches out in front of me.

Like words floating in mid-air.

I turn and observe

From an expansive viewpoint,

Yet sorrow commands my eye.

It has put down roots,

Walls and a roof,

Filled the room with sadness.

Emotions pushed to the extreme

Creates an opening,

That has let light in.

I thrust past the pain,

Into the vast morning sky,

Scattering teardrops,

That fall.

Flowers grow

Where once were only weeds.

Thriving amidst

 The unforgiving truths

That had been part of my life.

Social Justice for the Black Woman

From her nipple,

Sweet nectar that nurtures the earth.

From her womb,

New life emerge!

With her arms stretched wide,

She embraces all of Humanity.

From her eyes,

Teardrops fall?

From the pew,

She looks up at the minister.

A pentacle she may not be able to reach,

Because of her gender.

She holds the entire human race,

Close to her bosom.

Many know her love.

Even though she is denied.

When she walks in,

Pressure from the inside.

Finds its way through a tiny crack.

Down to the table.

A pen in her hand.

She writes A story

That was lived.

One that honors the Black Woman.

Propels her onto the world stage.

Now the Story is complete!

#Chronicle the Black Woman’s Rise

The Wise Queen

The Wise Queen


#White Supremacy



White Supremacy, Patriarchy and Capitalism tried to destroy The Black Woman’s Humanity. The White Woman was put on pedestal whilst the Black Woman toiled in the field all day.

Her black body was put on display to humiliate and cause her shame. Years later a design was modeled after her to make the White Woman look like she had a large behind.

Yet, the Black Woman’s soul has been untouched. It is something she kept for herself. A little she could call her own when everyone had taken a her away.

Like steam rising from the boil, the soil and the toil, weary body and mind, still she steps on. To a level slightly above common ground.

It is the Spirit of an African Nation. The hope of generations before. That a little black girl would hold on so one day she wound be strong to stand on her own. She rises with the wind at her back, blood on her tongue, the bitter taste of anger spat down on the ground.

So her ancestor’s spirt would find a home in America and she could get off her knees and stop praying. She is the one that society can depend upon. She understands, she must now do her share.

It is January1, 2016; Happy New Year!

The truth of  life is we are Human Beings. A greater purpose for living was revealed to me when I uncovered the law permeating in the depths of my being. Humanity has discovered many laws working in the universe. Man split the atom to make a hydrogen bomb. This latest discovery of Quantum Physics revealed an internal world concealed in darkness. These findings were possible because during the observation the law revealed its truth . I am an explorer after truth and knowledge that will free me from the self-imposed prison I found myself in.  The Law of Life revealed itself after I tore through the hard exterior that had enclosed my heart and peered inside and found compassion and wisdom.

The wisdom inherent in all of Humanity. It is more powerful than the boundless mind; it a reservoir of swirling possibility. Grasp the meaning of your advent in this world and perceive with your heart. The Law of Life which contain the wisdom of Humanity. All the Sciences, Arts and Culture which will make you a Global Citizen in 2016.

Peer into the collective wisdom of the Human Being. With a click of your mouse you can access any information you want on the internet. In quiet meditation, open the inner eye and the universe will reveal its secrets to you. I peeled back layers of the hard core surrounding me and there was a big secret hiding in darkness. I was a victim and powerlessness to change my life.

Growing up in American I perceived that dark-skinned people were to wear the brand of a second-class citizen. It is a garment that was not suitable to wear. Jacket stripped off, tattered and shredding revealed a better life that had been denied me. Awakened was a greater self- flowering through four hundred years of inequality.

The school was the place I thought would welcome ideas. Regrettably, school felt like prisons and factories. Feeling devalued and wanting teachers to like me I lingered in the darkness afraid to be express what was important to me. Sadly, the disrespect and dislike shut me down. I found myself on the fringes afraid to enter, so I walked away from my career in education.

Another group I was a part of referred to me as, Sister Outsider when they assigned me a poem to read, title the same. It was the height of my involvement in Community Arts for Social Change. We, women, celebrated the life of Audre Lorde. Each one of us read her poems. This group of women never truly embraced me or saw me as their equal. They labeled me, Sister Outside because of my refusal to assimilate into mainstream American Culture. A culture of fear that wants control and power over Humanity. This American way of life seemed so artificial compared to how a different world-view was opening to me. I was always genuine, so I thought.

Bu the reality was; I was not true to myself. I held back expressing my ideas because I did not see a reflection of myself in society. Secretly I felt worthless and inferior, so I joined the Army to prove I was just as good as the White Man. At camp, everybody just went alone. I did not, and consequently, I was almost kicked out. The SGT Major at my university where I was enrolled believed in me. I won the discharge, regrettably I received a 3M and would never be able to go on active duty. Being excluded from serving on active duty was a blessing in disguise.

What I have come to know about growing up as Black Woman in a White world. The world we live in is a world of Myths lived as something real, from Santa Claus to the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny. These childhood myths seep into adulthood, and we teach them to our children never really knowing the damage they do to the dignity of Black life.

This past Christmas 2015 I refused to celebrate. A Facebook video I watched revealed to me the reality of December 25. It is an explanation of the Winter Solstice and what happens with the Sun. We celebrate December 25 as many cultures do as a way of building community. On the 25th of December the Sun returns from three days of rest.

The Sun begins it progress back across the sky and the days begin to lengthen again. Yes, the three days preceding the sun appears as if the sun is at rest then arises the third day. The three kings mentioned in the Bible is a constellation in the sky. The man twisted the story into one that honors a White man named Jesus who they say cheated death and was raised from the dead. I also found out the stories we believe in are central to most cultures to explain life to an immature mind.

2016 is the year of the my Great Awakening to the Truth of Life. The truth that we are beacons of light. Light Energy vibrating at an incredible rate of speed. So fast it is 96.6 degrees that warms the body and all iternal organs. We are a force creating life. This force becomes conscious of itself and begins to watch and awakens to the truth of life just as it is.
Tune in for Part 2 a bit later this year.
