Thoughts on aging...
As I approach 50 (I am now a ripe 46 years Young), I find myself sitting in my mental window, peeking thru the curtains, and looking back over the morning of life. That is, the active years before 40 and 50. What a difference a day makes, so a decade of LIFE will have you daydreaming over cocktails. I am finding my stride as I witness the afternoon of my life opening up. I am no longer running to the fast pace of the morning, but am now finding time at last for more spiritual, cultural, intellectual, meaningful experiences...many of which were thrust aside in the heat of youth's race to....? The citizens of Amerika, with a terrific emphasis on staying young 'n active and material success, certainly tend to try and avoid the afternoon of life and many even pretend it never comes. We fight to push the clock back and prolong the morning, disrespecting our own mortality and purpose for being here, stressing ourselves out in the most unnatural manner. Of course one cannot succeed when fighting life itself. We are not meant to compete with our sons and daughters. To everything there is a season. Unfortunately in our breathless attempts, we often miss the flowering that awaits the afternoon of life. Midlife is a season that is often misunderstood and tragically misinterpreted. Many people never take time to smell the roses along the road from 30 to 50. I try to smell Every. Single. Rose. I am at peace and am grateful for the PROCESS of life. Over the last decade I have shed my emotional struggles, many of my frivolous worldly ambitions, the material burdens that the youthful morning of life incurs. I am free to begin fulfilling the aspects of myself that inherently take a backseat when we're raising children and running households. If we do it right, parenthood is a pretty selfless lifestyle, for the most part. For me, in this midlife experience, I am free and open for growth of mind, heart and my divine gifts. I am free at last to bask in my own spiritual growth, free of the confines of expectation. I see my history and my future when I look in the mirror. I see God's work in me, and it is priceless. I am comfy in my own skin and I actually like spending time with ME. Henceforth, I project that it only gets greater later... And I predict that I am on the path, full steam ahead, to living my BEST life. ModupĂ© O, Baba! ModupĂ© O, Yeye!! 50, here I come...the golden number of my Iyami Osun.       ~Pilar

7 Laws to Live By

Here are the 7 immutable laws that I live by...
They are always at work weather we believe it or not. If you do not believe, then you will always find yourself in opposition with the natural laws of life, wondering why nothing seems to ever work in your favor. Read, study and meditate on the deeper things; the interworkings of this life plane. Know nature's laws that govern the earth and incorporate this knowledge into your daily rhythm.

The Law of Divine Oneness states that everything is connected. What we think, say, do and believe will have a corresponding effect on others and the universe around us. Our actions must reflect the greater good because, whether we accept it or not, our actions directly and indirectly affect everything and everyone around us.

The Law of Vibration (Attraction) states that everything vibrates and nothing rests. Vibrations of the same frequency resonate with each other, so like attracts like energy. Everything is energy, including your thoughts. Consistently focusing on a particular thought or idea attracts its vibrational match.

The Law of Transmutation states that energy moves in and out of physical form. Your thoughts are creative energy. The more you focus your thinking on what you desire, the more you harness your creative power to move that energy into results in your life. The Universe organizes itself according to your thoughts. Put your energy and effort, your thoughts and actions into attracting what you desire, and you will surely attract the physical manifestation of that energy.

The Law of Relativity states that nothing is what it is until you relate it to something. Point of view is determined by what the observer is relating to. For instance light is only light when you relate it to darkness, positivity is such when you relate it to negativity, Power is so when you relate it to weakness, etc.

The Law of Cause and Effect states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Every cause has an effect, and every effect has a cause. Be at cause for what you desire, and you will get the effect. All thought is creative, so be careful what you wish for… you will get it.

The Law of Rhythm states that everything has a natural cycle. The tides go in and back out, night follows day, and life regenerates itself. We all have good times and bad times, but nothing stays the same. Change is constant. Knowing that “This too shall pass” is great wisdom about life’s ebb and flow.

The Law of Gestation states that everything takes time to manifest. All things have a beginning and grow into form as more energy is added to it. Thoughts are like seeds planted in our fertile minds that bloom into our physical experience. It is important to stay focused and know that your goals will become reality when the universe conspires to make it so.

Happy First Quarter Moon!!!
Here is my FQM ritual work:
I remember when I was little, all my mamas friends that wore a ton of jewelry were always the ones that stood out in the room. They were either the loudest, the deepest, the most opinionated or the most touchy-feely-kissy face with the wet kisses on the cheek. LOL. Why? Because they are literally walking kinetic reservoirs of energy field magnets...and every piece of jewelry they wear is its own energy field. Imagine that every crystal, every stone and every metal you wear contains the energy of the last time you wore it...or even still...the last thing it touched. Were you angry? Sad? Tired? Overjoyed? or happy? The latter is not so bad, but it is important to care for everything you carry on your divine temple. Did you just take your jewelry off and toss it on the dresser? Leave it in your purse? On the bathroom counter? The kitchen table? Did you think about it or pray over it when you took it off or put it back on to release the energy from the day? hmmmm.
I am very intentional about every piece of jewelry I adorn. I think about it, speak to it and create the effect I want it to have when I adorn it. When I take it off it has a home. My pieces, whether shiny heirlooms or pieces I created or purchased, have a place specifically designated to charge and recharge. I use them a lot on my body so I treat them with love and care. I treat every piece like a sacred gift. Your physical temple is a sacred shrine.
1. Gather allllllllllllll your jewelry, clean it with a sacred cloth.
2. Lay the pieces one by one on a sacred mat or fabric
3. Clean your space and designate places or fixtures on which to hang or store your jewelry and clean those fixtures. Let your creativity guide you. It can be one central place such as a chest or drawer or, if you're a little OCD with it like me, you can find all the things in your space that you deem sacred, bless them and hang/store a piece of jewelry there so that the entire room becomes a kind of sacred museum of your personal adornments! (Nina Simone LOVED to see her jewels hang too! #SheThroughMe) I use pictures, flower vases, plants, candles, artifacts, pretty containers and all sorts of inanimate objects in my "woman cave." Your jewelry over time will look and feel so different. Trust.
People underestimate the magnetic energy of the FQMoon, and it's ability to magnify our divine intentions on this earthly plane. The next 3 nights (including tonight) are ripe for such projects.

Peaceful Surrender

Mindfulness is a way of life. 
If you're not meditating daily, then what are you really 
plugged into and what/who is ur source of power?
In today's meditation I allowed my mind,
full of the past 3 weeks, 
to get LOST in the moment.
Take note:
"To lose yourself is a kind of surrender...to be lost in love...lost in a good book...even lost in pain or grief... totally immersed in what is present until it's surroundings fade away. To be lost is to be fully present, and to be fully present is to, at times, be comfy in a state of uncertainty and mystery. In this place we surrender to a power much higher than our own. In this kind of mindful meditation, being lost is a conscious choice, a deliberate surrender that surpasses physical geography. Today I got lost in my head...in the visual of this tree, and I swear I had about 5 revelations. This kind of humble surrender is where I find my truth...every time. Once we understand that the things not immediately visible to us (the spiritual plane) are usually the things we need to find the most in order to fulfill our purpose, THEN, in the midst of our surrender, we will find them. There is great power in letting go...even if just for a moment."
