stepping up.

stepping up to the plate looks differently for so many people. that could mean in the literal sense of stepping up to the plate right before a baseball game, hoping to knock the ball right out the park. it could also mean in the sense of being charged with something and ensuring that you meet the mark in regards to what needs to be done. that could look differently for so many people, especially based on the way that a person approaches conflict, and how to come to a resolution in its finality.  however, you naturally know when it is the time to come to the realization that it is time for things to shift, whether for your own personal goodness or for the goodness of others. you know that good old saying about people being mirror reflections of you and how you treat them is truly how you treat yourself. that’s even when you’re rashing someone. how you talk to them is a reflection of how you have the ability to gather your whole life together in a way that always isn’t the most positive. check yourself. the ‘man, what the fuck are you thinking’ thought processes aren’t always going to be the best things for you to perpetuate in your mind and spirit.

and you know this. i just needed to reiterate it for you on today. as i continue to pass through the days that go by, i realize that there is so much that’s changing. there’s so much growth. so much newness. it’s all about the new world and how we are choosing to be a part of it or not. how we function in that is a choice and how you allow it to actually benefit you or not…that’s half the battle, baby. what do i mean by this new world? it’s a new level of consciousness that we are striving to achieve. a space of understanding and truth that none of us have experienced before but we are having to step into. this is a choice. stepping up means getting to the next level of truth for you. how do you know you’ve made it there?

take this example: you just recently got through a whole situation where things that you were holding onto from your childhood came to the forefront and you were able to clear through and now, you know that this was happening for a reason. you don’t question it and after the situation has transpired, you tend to feel lighter and just more at peace with yourself. you know that you are breaking through barriers that you didn’t even know existed. now you’re in a space of realizing that change is being facilitated and the way that it is welcomed in is such a beautiful thing. the reason why this is so important to pay attention to, work through, make sense of and then move forward in bliss is because you have truly made a shift in your vibration, your understanding, and with this new knowledge have space to truly make something shake in a beautiful way. this allows you to see things from such a different perspective. being able to appreciate that dust, that shit, that waste of energy that you were holding onto for so long, lovingly releasing it and allowing it to transcend into the cosmos so that way you don’t have to be concerned about it anymore. the dust is what is settles…it’s time to shake shit up.

we are stepping into beautiful realms and beautiful gowns. are you going to allow yourself to stay put in the space you are now, or step up into a newer space that helps you to feel at peace, at home, and in the mindset of knowing that more greatness is on the horizon? you know that you truly have God’s grace on your side and the ability to manifest whatever your heart desires. it just is up to you to make sure that you put the effort forth into making that happen instead of just sitting around waiting for it to happen.

step up to the plate. knock that emotional BALL out the park. show yourself how to love yourself so that way it radiates to others. lead in light. hold onto the thought that karma does exist. ensure that you do whatever is necessary in order for you to move to those higher levels of groundedness. it’s your time.

amen. asé.



Circles and Squares

Happy New Moon in Virgo, everyone! The New Moon in Virgo is connected to manifesting the dreams we have been hoping and praying for, and allowing them to come to pass. Today is also 9/9, and today’s date also has a lot of significant meaning when it comes to the Universe and its creation. The 99 Gateway is happening today, and if you would like some more information about its importance, you should go here and read about it. TL;DR – you should be focusing on loving yourself first so that way you can ensure that you are able to send love to others as well. Human connection is important in regards to our life here on Earth, and making sure you’re spending time healing connections with yourself first and with others.

Today, I did a little ritual where I sat and meditated for 30 minutes about the dream life that I wanted to have for myself, and allowed myself to finally daydream for once and think of all I wanted to see come to fruition. Visions of my future and the things that I want to see manifest themselves in my life is where I put a lot of my energy. I took inventory of the people in my life, what actually helped me feel stronger daily, and the things I actually want to accomplish and see for myself, no matter how inane they may sound to someone else. I then took some time to write down 10 actions steps I could take that were somewhat small in order to try and get towards the visions that I saw for me. After writing those action steps, I put them in a place that I can revisit them daily to help ground myself towards achieving the life that I want for myself – it helps me to remember why I’m here on Earth and was chosen to fulfill this soul mission.

If you haven’t taken some time to do that today, I would suggest you taking a moment to do such. Think about what your dream life would look like. Think about what you would be doing, how you would be feeling, and where you would be if life was “perfect” if it was dictated by your own being. Think of the people that would be a part of your life also, and whether or not the ones that are around you are people that deserve to be a part of your space. All of these things are important when it comes to having the happiness and life that you see yourself having.

Sometimes, we have some squares in our circle and we don’t need that energy in our lives. I was having a conversation with a friend today about how he was feeling disappointed in regards to him putting himself out there for others and really not receiving back what he deserves. This was a conversation that broke my heart, especially coming from him. He is such a kind soul, and many people can steal our joy, even when we don’t intend for them to do that. Folks can be soul suckers and savages, and some people are so self-interested that they only USE you for their own personal gain without keeping in mind that you’re a person. This New Moon energy is all about letting that shit go and letting those wack people go because they’re not functioning on the same frequency as you. However, I want to encourage you to not overreact and eviscerate them because of how they’ve done you. Lovingly just release them and their energy from your life. No one wants to deal with someone or something that takes away from their light.

I also would encourage you to spend some time sending love to those that have always been in your corner, giving you tough love, pushing you towards the dreams that you have been wanting to see happen in your life. When you have folx that you can be vulnerable with in that regard, it allows you to connect on such a deeper soul level that helps you to see flaws in yourself that make you better. I think of how I just got clocked by my partner the other day for making excuses for things just because of small setbacks. Those that really want to see you grow will always uplift you in a way that keeps it real with you, but also know you well enough to now it’s for your greater good and holds you accountable.

Squares can’t fit in circles for a reason. They just don’t match. They have different makeups. Everyone is on their different paths in life, and some take longer to get there than others. Even those that seem like they are on their ‘right path’ potentially may not be, and it could just be a detour towards something else. Don’t idolize what you don’t have and other’s may – just focus on what you got going on for yourself, and keep putting that loving energy into your spirit so that way you can make use of it. I think of how you know what’s best for you, and if someone isn’t willing to be well-rounded…they aren’t on the path towards becoming their best self. Circles are always moving in a rotation and always come back to what helps them start at their beginning. There are no questions about where they are ending also because they continue to move on and on. Think of who is continually reinventing themselves for their greater good, and those that just get stuck in their own ways. Don’t spend your time getting left in the dust because of your rigidity.

People change, and if you are not working on changing and becoming better, what are you really doing with your life? All in all, think about how you can become the best version of yourself, what actions you need to take to get there, and how you can focus on what is most important for your own personal gain and who has been a light and a support on getting you there. You’ll reap the benefits in so many ways. Let your fantasies run wild. Be encouraged to daydream. Search inside yourself for the life and the beauty you have only thought was an illusion. It can become real if you allow yourself to make it real. Just trust the process, and you’ll get there before you even know it. Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Amen. Asé.
