Faux Locs & Mediumship

I needed a change so I decided to do the style of faux dreads/ locs. It took me 8 hrs after an 8 day at work and I LOVE it minus the new experienced heaviness on my head and neck. It’s the look of total freedom without the total commitment to change, at least on the physical level.

Mediumship 

I’ve been practicin, I’ve been practicin to let go of my logic and allow Spirit in. It takes time and patience has ever been my virtue but as I’m learning, time is everything and everything has its own time. I was in church yesterday and I had come in late so I sat in the back not wanting to directly disrupt service. I sat down and did a quick mediation to ground myself and to invite my guides in to help with delivering messages. I suddenly started feeling a throbbing on the left side of my head. I suffer from migraines but they are always on my right side so I knew immediately I was picking up energy from somewhere/ someone else I just needed to find out from whom. I focused and allowed myself to let Spirit in. Not too long after this my Reverend asked if I had received anything and it was my time to let Spirit work.

She sat in the front row, wearing all black, with a pixie style haircut, and she wore a turquoise crystal around her neck. I asked her name and then asked if she experienced migraines, she said no, and then I knew…. I asked if she saw auras (a common side effect of migraines) and if she saw Spirit. She readily admitted that she had seen Spirit, all of her life actually but had not ever received training or development on it. Spirit informed me to tell her to begin her spiritual journey so that she too can aid others. It was an amazing experience to say the very least. It’s astonishing to see what can happen when you stand out from your own restrictions and allow Spirit to work!

Hearing the Voice

It’s been a long time since I’ve last heard my name being called out to me. It startles me for sure but it never scares me…. it happened again today. I was on lunch on a short walk due to the heat and I hear a masculine voice call out my name as though his hands were circled around his mouth, “AMMMMBBEERR”. I stopped and turned around thinking it was a friend/co-worker messing with me but when I turned around no one was there. I heard it again and then again for a third time. I knew then that it was Spirit but I don’t know who it was. It was not a voice I’ve ever heard  before, perhaps it’s a new guide, or a guide I’ve already had but have not been acquainted with yet. Some may read this and think I’m short a few screws or that I may be lying, but I’m learning to walk within my own truth. Those who understand will know and others will scrutinize and judge. That’s ok, we all have our moments of truth.. This is my truth…. My soul discovering journey, my development in becoming an intuitive counselor.

The First Day of Summer

The light was green, 4am, I knew it was ok to proceed,

your screams I will never forget, our bodies jolted, slightly twisted

In less than 10 seconds we were crashed,

oh the adrenaline took hold as I climbed and blasted myself from the wreckage

Police and the lights, as the witness and suspect stay at the scene

You were taken away, front seat of the 5-0  I be, one step in the ER and I drop

down to my knees and the pain is unbearable

Hours passed, mother by my side, after the Norcos and Morphine

I find myself by your side

You kiss my forehead and tell me not to cry, you love me, before you leave goodbye

That was our last hoorah together…

Happy Birthday Grandpa

How to Manifest Your Dreams

I’ve been working with manifestations for a long time now, we all have, yet we wouldn’t necessarily call it manifestations. Many would call it an answer to their prayers, but I encourage you to look a bit more deeper and give yourself some credit. The Law of Attraction tells us that we attract what we emit, metaphysically and spiritually speaking. Continue reading the following and you too can understand and realize how to manifest your own dreams:

What is it that you really want?

Ambiguous, right? Yeah I know, there’s so many things in life we really want to do so it can be difficult to chose just one thing but you must. Deciding what you want is the first step in manifesting your dreams because it sets a specific desire and intention. I’m writing this as I’m needing to be reminded… so what it is that I want?

image

Being of service to others, spiritually, metaphysically, and theoretically as a future Mental Health Counselor and Spiritual Counselor, that’s what I want. I’ve been gifted with spiritual talents so that I can be of assistance to others who are lost, hopeless, and those who just need someone to believe in them. This is my life and soul mission, so how do I get there?

image

I’ve taken courses in mediumship through my church’s organization, which has been a very lengthy and informative process. Spiritualists require strict coursework, guidelines, and verifiable experiences in order to become accredited within the organization as a medium who serves within the NSAC (National Spiritualist Association of Churches). I also take metaphysical courses in specializing in Metaphysical Counseling with the University of Metaphysics, not to mention my grad school coursework of Mental Health Counseling. The message here is if you decide to reach out to someone who claims they are a spiritual advisor or counselor who claims they can read your future be weary. Ask to see credentials, it’s ok.

image

So here I am hoping intending to meet like minded individuals who are willing to help me along my path so that I can help others on their path too.

Believe you have what you want and live the life you want. Manifest and create.

Advice from a Dying 24 Year-old

Too Beautiful NOT to Share!
“Advice from a Dying 24 Year Old”

MakeItUltra™

walking-into-the-sunset-copy

I came across this today and felt compelled to share.


“Soon I will be gone forever, but that’s okay as long as someone reads this. I am only 24 years old, yet I have actually already chosen my last tie. It’s the one that I will wear on my funeral a few months from now. It may not match my suit, but I think it’s perfect for the occasion.

The cancer diagnosis came too late to give me at least a tenuous hope for a long life, but I realized that the most important thing about death is to ensure that you leave this world a little better than it was before you existed with your contributions . The way I’ve lived my life so far, my existence or more precisely the loss of it, will not matter because I have lived without doing anything impactful.

Before, there were so many things…

For 7-14 days my emotions jump
round contentment, sadness, isolation, hopelessness, ugliness, and sometimes angriness for no reason, and let’s not forgot the excess water weight, why… because Eve ate from the tree?

Just to say, yeah I’m not a mother today…

The torture.

When in doubt hike it out. Soul discovering journey…. walking my way through enlightenment.

Transparency

My eyes they weep, the phone rings and it’s you. And you would never know
These tears were for,
were of you…

Words never speak right or clear but transparent when read, I knew you would understand, you always understand. You accept me. Challenge. Respect. Encourage. Support. You Love me.

No amount of beauty in this world could ever bring me a man who truly cared, yet when I turned away and forgot the world, you entered my world…

It is you. I never had anyone afraid to lose me, and you’ll never know these tears I weep are because of you.

Anxiety, You Won’t Annihilate Me!

Everything isn’t what it seems and darkness is never dark forever. Yet I’m not in a dark place, more so in a gray space where I’m overwhelmed, in turmoil, and being attacked, or so it seems. ANXIETY, is a bitch, mind the word choice. I found a connection with it and my spiritual growth that I’ve been impressed to share. If interested please continue reading….

I always had this mental image of what ANXIETY actually looked. Hyperventilation is what comes to mind and it’s always followed with a panic attack, right? I never realized that all this time I’ve been struggling with this and I didn’t realize it until recently. Mental health counseling was the field I decided to do my Master’s program within due to my innate passion  for the mental health community. I’ve been learning so much about my own struggles as I continue forward in my education, so much that I have notice an intertwining with my spirituality.

Change is the culprit to my grayness, and it’s never long lasting. Change is a positive because it just means there’s something around the corner, something more to discover about self. I have a hard time dealing with change to be honest, it’s HARD. Grayness filters over and it’s hard to see the outside so I resort back into my inside, similar to what depressed people do, withdraw themselves from society. I become lost within my own fears and it’s debilitating. BUT, it’s never for too long before amazing things start to happen…

Spiritually speaking, everything happens for a reason and there is no cause without effect, metaphysically speaking. So if I believe this is true, then I should expect wonderful, brilliant things to happen but I don’t. The DSM-V  states the following symptoms of an anxiety disorder:

  1. Excessive anxiety and worry (apprehensive expectation), occurring more days than not for at least 6 months, about a number of events or activities (such as work or school performance).
  2. The individual finds it difficult to control the worry.
  3. The anxiety and worry are associated with three (or more) of the following six symptoms (with at least some symptoms having been present for more days than not for the past 6 months):

    Note: Only one item is required in children.

    1. Restlessness or feeling keyed up or on edge.
    2. Being easily fatigued.
    3. Difficulty concentrating or mind going blank.
    4. Irritability.
    5. Muscle tension.
    6. Sleep disturbance (difficulty falling or staying asleep, or restless, unsatisfying sleep).
  4. The anxiety, worry, or physical symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

I find myself within the A category only when change has occurred. I have not visited a professional to be properly diagnosed, but I know myself for 27 years, and I also know how to correct it. Simply by living in the moment.

Being present is challenging with so much in the world to stimulants us and distract us from the moment. Nature, this setting always brings me back to calmness and balance. It’s ultimately where my spirit is available to roam free. Finding what speaks to your inner being is the best form of treatment and this varies in form. If you have been clinically diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder than please do not divert from your own treatment plan, but I highly suggest you, if you haven’t already, implement a spiritual concept to interject in your everyday life and watch how your life will improve. I suggest this for all mental disorders actually! One day I hope to join both counseling concepts and theories with spiritual concepts and theories for overall wellness.

My cover picture was “accidentally” taken in my jacket pocket on a day out in nature… this picture brings me hope and purpose, most importantly it affirms that nothing is by accident. I will battle with my anxiety for probably the rest of my life and I can accept this. This does not define the woman or spirit that I am. I can only improve, learn, and share with others in hopes that they or you too can resonate with my story. If you would like to share your experiences please do!
