Welcome To Transformative & Healing 2020…

1 Jan

Esteemed Friends:

Happy New Year. I can feel that 2020 will transcend 2019.

2019 was a very painful and challenging year for me. It taught me many unforgettable lessons e.g. to keep working on self-love/self-esteem/self-worth; the importance of following my intuition and putting up/maintaining boundaries; working with my shadow side; fueling a transformation/spiritual awakening/evolution; to be more discerning about who I trust or befriend, etc.

I have been detoxing from toxicity in all of its forms (e.g. toxic people/situations/behaviours/thoughts/emotions). In the past year, I have distanced myself from a person that has a toxic and dysfunctional family {namely his evil witch sister, diabolical ex-wife and possibly his son}. They thrived on gossiping, slandering/lying, backstabbing and getting sadistic pleasure from others’ pain, etc.

They smiled in your face while they stabbed you in the back. They poisoned my friend’s mind about me and turned him against me. To be honest, they had extremely bad vibes and stole my energy (i.e. psychic vampires that dabbled in the dark arts) and I am so grateful to be away from them. 

When I used to see them at social events, they would drain my energy to the point of almost falling asleep. It would take days to recover from the energy theft. I feel so much lighter spiritually to not have their sinister presence in my life. They were so familiar with envy and jealousy that they probably invented the concept of “the evil eye.”

He really should have known better. He really should have known me and who I am at my core- my essence. He should have not been dissuaded by these jealous, evil and heartless individuals.

This year I will continue to focus on transformation/spiritual awakening/evolution and healing. I will keep working on my shadow side, fitness, education and other projects (which includes this blog).

This post is the first post of this 2020. I am going to release any fears and judgments about my writing/thoughts/emotions. I am just going to let them flowthis is why they are called stream of consciousness reflections. It is a creative expression with minimal editing.

I close this post with So Fresh and So Clean by Outkast. Despite all that has transpired in 2019, I am choosing to start 2020 feeling so fresh and so clean. I feel my Leo fire energy giving me strength.

The phoenix rises from the ashes.

Left her throat warm in the dorm room at the A.U
We blew hay too, athletes might cake youBut you must have me mistaken with them statements that you make ’cause

[Verse 2: Big Boi]
Canary yellow seven-nine Seville is on display
My n***a Bongo hooked it up, Omar gon’ dip my rims today
So a n***a can ride out to the Honeycomb Hideout
I’mma show you how to wild out like Jack Tripper
Let me be bambino on your snipples
YKK on your zipper, lick you like a lizard when I’m slizzard

Or sober, six million ways to fold ya
Like Noah’s, I get two’s of youse and you get pretty ‘D’
But I’ll call yo’ ass ’round eight-ish, I know you’ll be there for me, girl

[Hook: André 3000]

[Verse 3: André 3000]
Those huge baby eyes, get to runnin’ off at they mouth

And tellin’ me everything that’s on your nasty mind
They say you’re malnutritioned, in need of vitamin D
And invitin’ me to that tingle in your spine
I love who you are, I love who you ain’t — you’re so Anne Frank

Let’s hit the attic to hide out for ’bout two weeks
Rick James’n, no chains and whips
I do suck lips ’til hips jerk in double time

The boy next door’s a freak, ha-ha!

[Hook: André 3000]
Ain’t nobody dope as me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean

Don’t you think I’m so sexy? I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean

Ain’t nobody dope as me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean

I love when you stare at me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean

[Bridge: André 3000]
And we are… The coolest motherfunkers on the planet
And my, my… The sky is fallin’, ain’t no need to panic
But ooh ooh… I got a stick and want yo’ automatic
Ooh, ooh, ooh… Compatible, created in the attic
And we are… The coolest motherfunkers on the planet
And my my… The sky is fallin’, ain’t no need to panic
But ooh, ooh… I got a stick and want yo’ automatic
Ooh, ooh, ooh… Compatible, created in the attic

[Hook: André 3000]
Ain’t nobody dope as me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean

Don’t you think I’m so sexy? I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean
Ain’t nobody dope as me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean

I love when you stare at me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean
Ain’t nobody dope as me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean

Don’t you think I’m so sexy? I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean
Ain’t nobody dope as me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean
So fresh and so clean, clean

I love when you stare at me; I’m dressed so fresh, so clean

Reflection for today…I Against I -The Bhagavad Gita & Mos Def

2 Jan

“He who has conquered himself by the Self,

he is a friend of himself;

but he whose self is unconquered,

his self acts as his own enemy like an external foe.”
Bhagavad-Gita, VI.6

*

You can be your best friend or your own worst enemy. It really is your choice. Sadly, most people are their own worst enemies. They consciously or unconsciously engage in self-sabotage/self-destructive behaviour.

This is the shadow side that Carl Jung talks about. {I will be discussing this fascinating concept in future posts}.

The question is: how to emancipate yourself from your self-destructive prison?

How do you stop fighting yourself?

Lyrics

“I-ya, I against I, flesh of my flesh, and mind of my mind,

two of a kind but one won’t survive,

my images reflect in the enemies eye, and his images reflect in mine the same time,

I-ya, I-ya, I against I, flesh of my flesh, and mind of my mind, two of a kind but one won’t survive,

Right here is where the end gon’ start at, conflict, contact ‘n’ combat,

fighters stand where the land is marked at, settle the dispute about who the livest, 3 word answer, Whoever survive this, only one of us can ride forever, so you and I can’t ride together, can’t live or cant die together, all we can do is collide together, so I skillfully apply the pressure, won’t stop until I’m forever… one! A doorstep where death never come, spread across time til my time never done, and I’m never done, walk tall, why ever run? when they move if I ever come? bad man never fret the war, tell’em come general we have the stock, the mad fire burn I-ya,

I against I, flesh of my flesh, and mind of my mind, two of a kind but one won’t survive, my images reflect in the enemies eye, and his images reflect in mine the same time, I-ya, I-ya,

I against I, flesh of my flesh, and mind of my mind, two of a kind but one won’t survive, survive (x16)

Reign supreme in your U-N-I, V-E-R-S-E with the sharpness, narrow row building no space for partners, no space for drivers, no space for walkers, no space regardless, your on my path then get off it, hardheaded and unresponsive, get they lives put on target with harshness, come with the canons sparkin’ they darken, who am i? one man squadron, Ma stir the fire this time that’d snatch your tomorrow, the thousand-yard spear that’ll pierce through your armour, you can get it on right now if you want to, but when ya front 9 get marched through, I warned you, You know who forever belong to,

I-ya, I-ya I against I, flesh of my flesh, and mind of my mind, two of a kind but one won’t survive, my images reflect in the enemies eye, and his images reflect in mine the same time, I-ya, I-ya, I against I, flesh of my flesh, and mind of my mind, two of a kind but one won’t survive, my images reflect in the enemies eye, and his images reflect in mine, survive survive (x16).”

Reflection for today…Cosmic Order -Carl Jung

19 Apr

“In all chaos there is a cosmos,

in all disorder a secret order.”

-Carl Jung

*

I am such a star-gazer and lover of the universe.

Are you?

I think all of the secrets and mysteries of the universe are revealed in the sky.

Stars are like hieroglyphics etched above.

The night sky is so exquisite- mysterious yet revealing.

The sky in daylight also has its beauty.

 The moon and the sun are proof that true love exists.

They are lovers and soul mates.

“The breath of the morning
I keep forgetting
The smell of the warm summer air

I live in a town
Where you can’t smell a thing
You watch your feet
For cracks in the pavement

Up above
Aliens hover
Making home movies
For the folks back home

Of all these weird creatures
Who lock up their spirits
Drill holes in themselves
And live for their secrets

They’re all uptight
 Uptight.. [x7]

I wish that they’d swoop down in a country lane
Late at night when I’m driving
Take me on board their beautiful ship
Show me the world as I’d love to see it

I’d tell all my friends
But they’d never believe
They’d think that I’d finally lost it completely

I’d show them the stars
And the meaning of life
They’d shut me away
But I’d be all right
All right..

I’m just uptight
 Uptight.. [x7]”

Reflection for today…Wandering -Clarissa Pinkola Estés

2 Jan

“Is it worse to stay where one does not belong at all than to wander about lost for a while and looking for the psychic and soulful kinship one requires”

This quote begs the question…

Would you rather be a lone wolf or part of a pack/tribe?

{If you think about it, we are both a lone wolf and a pack/tribe member}.

We are all individuals yet we belong to a pack/tribe- our family and our greater family- humanity}.

*To be honest, I am a lone wolf.
