How to harness the energy from the super moon and start manifesting things into your life

I’m so full of emotions! Today is a full moon and Super Moon. This is a very rare occurrence and it will be one that we will have to wait for a long time to see again. Flipping through the imaginary pages of the World Wide Web, I found that the next time the moon will be this close is 2034.  So take advantage of this people.

Tonight everything will be magnified X1000, hence why I’m a bag of emotions right now. But setting them aside, I wanted to tell you about what you can do to harness the energy of this very special moon.
I know, I know you are going to say “That’s some new age bullshit” but I’m telling you, it works. Why do you think wolf howl at it, it’s fucking powerful! So this is what I suggest:

1. Come home today and cleanse yourself. Take a shower and pretend you are taking away all of the negative energy with each scrub. Look at the water coming down from your body and draining down the drain. Imagine these are all those things that you are letting go which don’t help you in life.

2. Now you are ready! Put on some loose clothing and go outside to bathe yourself in the power of the moon. Take your journal with you. I said journal, not iPad, or iPhone or any other gadget you may have. The moon is old fashion, use pen and paper.
3. Write down your prayers. What do you want? What are you grateful for? What do you want to see more in your life? Only write down positive things. Now is not the time to concentrate on the negative. Remember the super moon’s energy is powerful, you do not want to attract negative shit just positive. I can’t emphasize enough, write only what you want, don’t be a negative nancy.
4. Then say that shit out loud! I know super embarrassing but say it either way! You are acknowledging the things that you want, you will do, you want to attract. So say it! Feel every emotion that comes with those words. Take ownership of those words, they are yours, and you are speaking them into existence.
5. Take a few minutes to meditate on what you said. Then go to sleep. Once in a while look at your prayer and say it out loud before bed.  Watch your dreams come to life.
The Sword that Won the War

The Sword that Won the War

I was scrolling through my Instagram while eating breakfast.  I came across Denzel Washington’s speech, where he won the Image Award for outstanding actor in a motion picture.  He said, “If you fall seven times, you get up eight.”  He then finished his speech with “Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship.”  This last line punched me in the gut.
Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship.  Saying this out loud, reminded me of all those moments when I wanted everything to be so simple.  Those times that I will cry and looked at the heavens, asking God why my life couldn’t be easy.  “Why was everything so hard?!” I would ask in my moments of desperation.
I also remembered, that just before all of my victories, there was a lot of misery.  It dawned on me that I was breaking walls to get to the other side.  The door was not left ajar, nor the window was left open for me to come thru.  During my most desperate moments, I had to bull doze my way to reach my goal. 
Not only do I love Denzel Washington as an actor, but I also love the charisma with which he talks and conveys his testimony.  It never fails to keep me engaged and help me to draw inspiration into my own life.  It’s true we don’t really grow through ease.  
Like a sword, we are forged by fire, hammered to shape and solidified by ice.  In the same way, a sword comes to life, we come into being.  The hardships in life mold us, our commitment to getting up every time we fall down shapes us and the consistency of doing this, time and time again, makes us.  Through this hardship, commitment and consistency, we become that sword through which victories are won.  
I Have a Dream

I Have a Dream

Did you know that this speech almost did not happen?  But fate would not have it any other way.  This speech was meant to be heard, was meant to be televised, was meant to stir hope in people, was made to make people move into action.  Martin Luther King did not come to the March for Jobs and Freedom to talk about his Dream, he had another speech prepared but someone shouted and prompted him to tell us about his Dream.

The Dream was a sermon that he had told his congregation before, but it wasn’t what he was going to share with those people on that day.

But fate would not have it any other way.  At the prompting of that person, Martin Luther King modified his speech and shared with the world his Dream.  A dream of equality and love for ALL, not just for whites, not just for blacks, or Hispanics or Asians but for ALL.  The Dream that someone will be judged by their character and not by the color of their skin.  A simple dream but one that until today we still struggle to bring to reality.

Don’t get me wrong! We have come leaps and bounds from that fateful day on August 28, 1963, but we still have long ways to go.  We are not there.

Let’s use today not as an off day, but as a day to look inside and see how we can bring Martin Luther King’s speech alive in our lives.

Are we teaching our children to love others as oppose to hate?  Do our actions match our teachings?

When we stop looking or referencing at color and instead see each other as humans, that’s when we will truly be colorblind and we will be living The Dream.

The Magic Behind the Law of Attraction

The Magic Behind the Law of Attraction

the magic behind the law of attraction, The Secret, Having self-love, reading self help books, Attracting wealth and prosperity.
Have you thought of something so hard? Wanted something so bad? Dreamed it? Tasted it?  You knew it was yours, you were so sure, and then it was.  When I was little, I knew that if I prayed with fervor whatever I asked for it was mine.
I did not realize then what I know now; that I was using the law of attraction.  My energy, positivity, and knowledge that what I wanted will come true were fertile grounds for my dreams.  The years passed and I got older, a bit sarcastic, jaded by some life experiences and lost my mojo to attract the things that I wanted.  
Fast forward to two years ago, and I came across the book ‘The Secret.’  The title sounded super mysterious like a Sue Grafton novel, and I was intrigued.  What was the secret to people attaining all their wishes?  I knew that hard work and perseverance make things happen.  I knew about not giving up.  What I did not know was that ‘The Secret’ was something as simple as wishing.
Here I was, thinking that those people with their visualization boards were crazy!  Instead, they are all part of The Secret!
People who visualize; see their dreams coming true, are the ones that are making things happen!  
I know that some of you may have that ‘crazy’ friend that tells you about their big idea but don’t know how the heck they will do it.   You try to tell them about all the ‘what ifs’ scenario but they don’t care, they just know that they are going to write the greatest book about a young teenage wizard.   While they are telling you this, you are thinking ‘you can’t even afford a typewriter to write that book.’  JK Rowling anyone?
Those crazy dreamers are onto something! They are working with the law of attraction.
It’s like magic! No?
If you feel stuck right now or think that you are not getting anywhere, I suggest you read ‘The Secret.’  If you are not into reading, get it on audible.  If you are not into audible and have a Netflix subscription, it’s there! Watch it.  You can thank me later.
Create your vision board.  Make your dream house out of clay, imagine yourself walking through your beautiful red door, walking across the living room and stepping on your shiny hardwood floors, walking up the stairs and opening the door to your master bedroom.  Meditate on this, dream it, feel yourself there, and it will be yours.  
It’s so easy! But you have to believe in it.  It’s like praying, you have to know in your heart that it is yours already.  Give thanks for it and continue to live your life.
When I was little this dreaming and knowing that my dreams will come true because God listens to me was so easy.  I was innocent, and I knew that everything I asked for, I deserve because I was a good girl.  So for sure, I will get it! Duh! 
With adulting came some not so great moments where I lost that innocence, and I thought there were certain things I did not deserve nor should I have because maybe I’m not such a good person after all.  When I was wronged, I did not know how to forgive others.  When I wronged someone, I did not know how to forgive myself.  Holding grudges and self-hate polluted my heart.   I stopped asking with fervor, and I stopped expecting for the good things to come because surely I was not meant to have them.
Self-help book after self-help book, family, friends, and now my amazing husband have helped me to regain the peace in my heart and soul that I lost along the way.  I now know that I deserve all the good things to come and I know that they will come because I deserve them.
My husband was one of those things that I prayed for.  Two years ago, I wrote the characteristics of my husband in one of my notebooks.  I wrote a prayer for him, close the book and put it away.  I just knew he will come.  A year later this super annoying guy came to my job and would not leave me alone till I went on a date with him.  He courted me for months with Starbucks and lunch outings.  One day I decided to give him a shot, and the rest is history.  A beautiful dream that came true.
