What Are Hip hop mantras and How Do They Work?

I am a very big fan of affirmations and mantras. I actually have a journal of different affirmations and mantras that I got from different spiritual websites and some that I had created on my own. See, mantras are statements or slogans that are often repeated. And when it is often repeated it seeps down to…

Demon Slayin’ with Cudi’s latest Masterpiece

“Genius often comes at a Price.“ At a time in our lives when it may feel to some people like the apocalyptic end, impending Donald Trump’s presidency, we were divinely gifted with so many spiritually-coated, melanin-enriched art in the form of music. A prime example of this is Solange’s A Seat At the Table, an album…

How Do you Speak To Your Subconscious Mind?

Foreword: I almost came close to deciding on not writing about my personal life anymore, because I was being attacked because of it. But after a time of contemplation, and talking to some friends and mentors about it, I’ve decided against it. I have readers who actually read and can relate to my thoughts and…

Thank You Michael and Prince..

It took me a while to get my mind in the right frame to write this post because his death was such a devastating blow to myself and others. I listened to his music all yesterday, with the hopes that maybe it would make sense to me, but all it really did was make the…

An Open Letter To My Emotionally-unavailable Love Interest

Sometimes I feel like I am holding on to something that is magical. A connection that only a few people ever get to experience. But there have been moments that I felt like I am wasting my time, waiting for you. Maybe that is my fault, maybe that is your fault.  I never been in…

Organic relationships and Love affairs

When you think of the word Organic, it is almost always synonymous to “healthy“, “simple” and “natural“. So when you think of an organic relationship or love affair, you would naturally blend the three together. A healthy, simple and natural thing. Only not all relationships are simple and a lot of them aren’t healthy. But…

Pessimistic vs. Optimistic

  This is a glass. A glass filled with water. The manner you perceive this glass of water, determines how you perceive the life of yourself and of the lives of others. Do you view this glass as half empty or half full? Dreamer, Optimist, Utopian, daydreamer, all of these titles describes one type of…

Negativity: How to cast it out of your life

  Okay, perhaps the title is a little misleading. I mean, you can’t really cast negativity out of your life entirely. You can always run into somebody who is just miserable and unhappy, but you can stop it from affecting your personal space and peace of mind. We all have met someone in our life…

What Is Your Purpose In Life?

I believe that everyone has a dream that they hold onto with such unwavering commitment and faith. As a child, when we wanted something badly enough, whether it was roller blades, a bike, or a new video game system, we held onto that image, that vision of receiving that of what we wanted. When you…

Gratitude: How To Apply It To Your Every Day Life

I remember growing as a little girl being told by my mother that I should always be “grateful for what I have, for there is someone who is grateful with much less.” As a kid, you don’t understand what the definition of gratitude is. All you know is that there is something you want but…
