How amazing technology can be, revisiting a class I missed in the @graceful.women portal 💜💕 Embracing and enjoying dipping my toe in and trying something new #mytruthismypower #intuitivewoman #yogibhajan #kundaliniyoga #sadhana #selfenquiry #pathtograce #doitwithgrace #transition #raisingvibration #yearof11

While making space in my phone this birth month pic popped up.... Major Mirrored tbt.... So befitting as I sit here and think of next weeks full moon which is on the cusp of a Capricorn/Cancer lunar eclipse January (super moon) /July (super eclipse) ..... The year of 11 has been major!!! Major keys!!!!!


1

“Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.” Major things are happening/awakening for me (if you’re a fire sign, you’re probably experiencing a major transition in some way too)... All I know is that I want to know all the things, I want to help others + be a light in the world.
.
The thing is, I feel extremely vulnerable talking about this spiritual calling (like the fact that I just said spiritual calling makes me feel super uncomfortable bc I know someone reading this will be judging me), but that is why I am forcing myself to share this. For the first time in 34 years I know what it is I’m here to do. So yes, I’m now learning about moons + crystals + birth charts + things that even months ago I would have said was really ‘out there’. But after years of signs + synchronicities, I’m finally trusting my intuition.
.
So this is me. I’m a slightly new me, but still me + if any of this resonates with you, please reach out bc if I’ve learned anything so far it’s that we are definitely not alone in this journey! Buckle up my friends... something tells me this is going to be a wild ride. 🖤✌🏼

My life is nothing but a whole load of humbling moments each day. So I must celebrate my life because no one knows what I go through... when I am alone. But it makes me so much more empathetic towards people. I want to be the type of loaner that only comes when people need healing. Then... off again I go in the distance... free of the world. But also ready when the world needs me. Always take care of yourself. Always. #yearof11 #atlanta #familyreunion #love #selfcare #wanderer #rnb #hiphop #chicagoartist #thegoat #dianaross #chakakhan

Har is the original force of Creativity.

My 40-day Sadhana (11 minutes)
.
Prosperity of love, creativity and brahmacharya (non-excess)
.
40 Days: Practice every day for 40 days straight. This will break any negative habits that block you from the expansion possible through the kriya or mantra. (Source: @3hofoundation)
.
I have done a 90-day prosperity meditation for love and creativity last year. Below is a description of the benefit of a 90-day practice.
.
90 Days: Practice every day for 90 days straight. This will establish a new habit in your conscious and subconscious minds based on the effect of the kriya or mantra. It will change you in a very deep way.
.
I will continue this practice, especially now that I have connected with brahmacharya. Knowing and choosing non-excess is of great importance at this time. It is one of the most powerful ways an individual can begin to actually change our reality in a way that aligns with what we each and all truly want.
.
For anyone who is into “streaks”, a sadhana is something that will be fun and deeply rewarding for you to try! .
See link in bio for link to video to learn the meditation.

It may not seem like it, but I am very strong. Death is not a sad thing to the person that dies, especially if they have been cultivating. It is fully accepted and done very clean and swift. It happens in slow motion. And There is no pain. And No fear. It is the acceptance of God’s hand. It is beautiful. At the very same time... life is meditation. It can be beautiful too. But I am learning more so how to live. How to meditate with every interaction I have and accept the things that even make me sad. Sadness is beautiful. It is the reason why I write songs. It is the reason why I love Stevie Wonder as his music reflects this depth of sadness while also being the most beautiful music I have ever heard. I realize death is an everyday occurrence. I let go. When people reject or abandon me... it fuels me to write more songs. It is death over and over again. When someone rejects you, they refuse to see you. Accepting this is meditation because you are dead to them. I wondered that if I died, would the people who rejected me actually comment or try to reach out. I wondered if they would feel bad. But it won’t matter to me then. I’ll be free. If I can find a way to be free living, then I’ve done a great thing. Living is hard. You have to constantly modify your energy. It is awkward. You have to act like you don’t know people that you know. Lol. You have to modify your energy around certain ones because you don’t want to come off this way or that way. You cannot allow yourself to fall in love so freely. Or talk to someone for fear of how others will look at you. You cannot lay with the homeless man or give someone money randomly that you don’t know. “They” will think you are crazy. You can’t just decide to sit on the steps and smoke your weed and sing and dance out loud (uhm... well). But life is all about mastery. I could have actually physically died yesterday, just as that day in Atlanta when I was shot at outside of my friends home. I couldn’t hear out of my left ear for hours because two bullets passed my head. Death is swift. Life is hard. If you know how to LIVE... you are the freaking GOAT. I am learning how to live. And I am forever grateful. #yearof11

Working for CME TV in Alabama. You know what I love about the south is that is it is incredibly humble. From the people to the environment. Nothing stays open past 6, unless it is a club or bar. I love the big city though. But I do appreciate this rural energy right here. No one is kicking me off their steps as I sit downtown at this building, which is closed just like most of the businesses on Sundays. So much freedom to just be. Just be. #yearof11

I believe ALL people have life paths in which the thing they deeply want... is not so easily attained. This can be the case... whether your deepest desire is a loving relationship or a successful career as whatever the heck it is you freaking love with all of your heart. Do it. Don’t stop. If you want to be incredible at anything, it might as well be what you love. But learn in the process and build on that. Release that ego and take advice. You are suppose to be a master... Never forget that. Your life is lifetimes of work... Keep going. #yearof11

I also forgot to give a shout to this beautiful beautiful spirit, Octavia Butler. If you don’t know who she is, if you went to google yesterday, her picture was right above the search engine. I’ve seen her do interviews and she is my family. Totally unconventional voice she has. Just like me. Thank you Octavia for your mind. 🙏🏾✨ #yearof11

Going to post some of my practice tonight... after I take a much needed bath. I haven’t done that in a while. Excited for everyone to hear the album. I realize that it is so dope to me that I have to be incredibly on point. I love how obsessed Beyoncé is about her craft. I watch her every single day and study her. I’m loving the craft of music and it’s never ending journey. When I left Chicago with my writing partner 11 years ago, I thought I was so dope... lol. Then I met writers like Naz and Kaleena. Producers like No ID and Jason Rome. I was quickly humbled. Quickly. Lol. I just want to grow. Forever and ever. And I won’t stop. Oh... and I don’t have on my wig now :/ cause I’m bout to take a bath. But I love big hair.... and I want it. My wig is not big. It’s flat. Lol. So I need that body honey... I need it. Random thoughts. Blah blah blah. I hope everyone’s day was life. I laughed with my daughter so much today that I was crying. Lol. She has so much energy that sometimes I’m like, “whew, I need to be more on point with my lifestyle and cleansing cause I want to be able to hang.” It’s going to take a lot of energy to build this show with the many songs we have for the album. I’m super excited. And nervous. And excited. Still eating fruit because fruit is king! The best I’ve ever felt internally in my freaking life! I get why people think fruitarians are crazy. But they are living the truth. Everyone living the truth seems crazy. But that’s why you should never care. Live your truth. Always. Even if people laugh or turn their nose up at you. I’m doing camera work at a church conference for my father and a lady looked me up and down in my dress. Lol. Maybe I am too revealing. But whatever... she has no idea the life I’ve lived feeling like I could never express how big and energetic I felt inside. Trying to suppress my energy so I wouldn’t offend anyone. That’s not the way to live. I’m learning to be more open. Whatever show we put together is going to be nuts... but I am climbing out of my shell. I’ve written a whole damn book in this post. I’m taking my bath now. #yearof11

💔 We need to rebuild this whole damn system. I will see this in my lifetime. If I have to do it or if I have to die for that... so be it. I don’t care anymore. This shit needs to stop. And we have to grow beyond our egos and walk through these communities. I know @depthandreach is bout that life! @add2themc Is bout that life! I am a silent builder primarily because I am extremely protective about my journey and if I change my mind on something... I don’t want to feel judged. But I am growing more and more okay with being publicly embarrassed because it is not about me. It’s about what impact will be made on humanity if I open up my heart and courage. I am working on it. I went deep into my pain and my own personal shortcomings and issues. But I can see a light in the distance of another journey that is geared more towards helping others. I just needed to spend a lot of time alone. Shit. I still do. Getting my stuff together. I feel so hurt by the abandonment I feel from people stemming from feeling intellectually and emotionally neglected as a child. I’m getting over it. I know my parents love me. The support I don’t feel from people gets to me. But I have to keep going. Enough about me. What about these young folks man. My heart hurts yo. What are we going to do to create a better environment for them to flourish? How can we individually be our own brand of hope for them? I try not to be so annoying with my daughter about things I want her to innerstand about her health and life. I do more listening at times. I see myself in her. I know what that is like. I need some time with my ancestors. Still working on an album. And TRUST... all this energy will be on the record. @stereo_mixtrumental always talk about how sound heals. And we are being intentional with it. This is a big responsibility. We are ALL truly great but operate below our potential. Don’t be afraid to do something incredible. Don’t be afraid to learn some new shit. Even if it makes you look silly in the beginning. If you know where you are going... You’ll have the last laugh. Even if it’s in heaven. Life is all about growth. And if you ain’t growing... you’re already dead. #rebuild #yearof11

My album has been pushed back, but there are tons of new developments that will push the final product into being a beautiful work of art. I’m thankful. Originally, my album date, “Year of 11” was scheduled for July 11. We may be pushing it back a month or two, but I will be sure to keep you all updated! “The G.O.A.T.” Has getting so much love. So much so, it just seems right that we slow our pace a little because of many new developments. Anyways... I’m so grateful to everyone who has a hand in this. It’s now bigger than me. It is a cooperative dream. And we are building. The first single of the album is in my bio. I love this record. Shit. #workingonanalbum #yearof11 #thegoat #itunes #spotify #newsingle #chicagoartist #chicagoproducer #greatness #hemightjustbe #thegreatest #hiphop #soul

If you are not chasing your bliss, then you are not living. It has nothing to do with likes or status. It has everything to do with the internal glory of being harmonious to yourself at all times. Harmonious with your truth. Happiness is everything. It does not come gifted in a package. It is inside of you. Being an artist is basically an opportunity to live out your own unique artistic fabric out loud. All of us are artists. Go and create your life in the direction of your bliss. #johnlennon #yearof11 #hiphop #r&b #soul #experimental #workingonanalbum #inspiration

In the studio ALL WEEK!!! I have a wig on but don’t get it twisted... I have hair on my legs and under my arms... and my head hair underneath is a beautiful bush of nappy goodness. I just love to dress up. I know some of y’all are curious lol. Still a natty girl. Still walking barefoot. Still got my feet in the grass. Still got my bag of fruit. Still on my spiritual journey. Still have insecurities. Still growing. Still learning. Still practicing. Still working on myself. Still cultivating. I’m still eating predominantly fruit which is LIFE!!!! Follow @thebreakfastfruitarian for that whole journey. Anyways. “The G.O.A.T.” Is now available on Spotify and iTunes! Also available on my soundcloud if you ain’t got the funds right now. I know how it is. 💚✨ But we will no longer be starving artists... let’s grow! Good people need to be wealthy.

Studio Rat. Gotta go wash myself. I love being in the studio. And hanging out with Nu. Those are two things I love. Now, it’s time to go be with her. #studiorat #workingonanalbum #yearof11 Check out that link in my bio if you would like 💚✨ It’s my new single produced by @stereo_mixtrumental and a whole album is coming along with that soon. Anyways. I love writing and I feel like I’m heading into a rant right now. I was really depressed for a long time. So many things... shit. But spiritually, mentally, physically I’ve been transforming. I know it’s not the end. I have to work really hard and I want to. With everything in my heart. I just feel so abandoned sometimes.. do you feel like that? It’s something from my childhood. Some ways I internalized the world around me. I get really scared. I worry if people will like me or hate me but then... there is a higher self in me that is totally cool with everything because all I want to do is be creative. And take care of my daughter, where she is totally surrounded by creativity love and support. Blah blah blah. I’m ranting. I love you guys. I took this picture for you. #yearof11 #ijustwanttobeanartist #allthetime #album

“the G.O.A.T.” is here... thank you so much for your love. Literally everything is inspiring today... Im happy that artists that are inspired. I just Love and appreciate y’all! This album is incredible to me. But it’s all intertwined in my process as an individual spiritually, emotionally, physically. And then to top it off, Stereo @stereo_mixtrumental who I’ve known for thirteen years, happened to be on some sort of spiritual path that was similar to mines. Yeah. Too dope. But nothing is easy. It’s hard. Stepping out of my shell. Being free. But so worth it. There are so many synchronicities but this is the #yearof11 I hope you enjoy the energy. It is all to inspire you.

Uhm... Important message : We might just be the greatest of all... of all time. 🎶 My SoundCloud will have one song only available for you to listen to Monday. It’s called “the G.O.A.T.” which is the first single off of my upcoming album, “Year of 11” which was entirely musically produced by @stereo_mixtrumental and written and sung by myself. I really hope to get @hooksbyjerusalem and a few others I won’t mention yet to collab on the project. It’s definitely a vibe. We are still writing, mixing and wrapping things up. I hope it inspires you. I hope this album inspires you. Most of my followers and people I follow are artists in their own right. Let’s raise the bar and take music to the levels we wish to reach within ourselves. There is something in my spirit... that I need to release. Something big. #yearof11 #workingonanalbum #stereo #single #albumrelease #pointofrealization #hiphop #r&b #vintage #experimental #chicagoartist #indie

My father (on the left) said he was trying to channel Michael Jackson, lol. He was 17 or 18. He made me obsessed with music at a young age and would buy me boxes of Rogers and Hammerstein movies 🎥. These were movies like “The King and I” , “My Fair Lady” & “The Sound of Music” I was hooked. Anyways... I digress now. I love my father so much. I love my parents. Even though we have not had the most perfect relationship and there are some underlying unresolved traumas that linger, the fact that I understand them means that the generations going forward will be better. I have a distant relationship with my extended family but they have no idea how much I appreciate them. I wouldn’t be who I am without the foundation. We see life differently... but that is okay. I still love every single one of them and this picture is LIFE! #yearof11

Abandonment is a big life theme for me. A big one... and I am learning. Being an artist is scary. But the best thing an artist can do is be one. I had to do some childhood trauma work... go into my own darkness... my own space. I realized that we are ALL special. We are ALL unique and we all have the ability to brand ourselves. Sometimes when you are not what people want to see it is obvious. But you must keep pushing. Abandonment goes deeper than my childhood. I now find myself in a space where I can literally be abandoned outright in front of my face. If people do not like what they hear... they are gone. If they do not like what they see... they are ghost. It is my truth to experience this level of abandonment because my life path has a lot to do with acquiring self validation, self assurance and trust. Even in the midst of validating myself, there is still an element of cooperation with the world. But I only can have that relationship if I do the things that make me totally free even if it makes others uncomfortable. Ironic huh? At an early age I knew I was different. I tried to shrink myself so that other people would accept me. I literally remember shrinking my voice. My dancing. My energy. I cannot do that any longer... but it is a journey to actualize the child inside of me that wishes to be free without judgement. I’ve adopted judgements of myself that are reflected back to me from others. I always knew that when I decided to be bold I would loose people. But this is the whole point. I have to keep going even through abandonment. It hurts so much but I have some Scorpio residue on me that thrives in painful states. The more I am doubted. The more I am inspired to elevate. What an incredible terrifying beautiful yet crazy life. My mantra... “keep going.” #yearof11
