Love holds no grievances.
It feels so good to roll these words from my lips bc it took years to get here. I believe that one of our greatest challenges as earth dwellers is learning to remove the personality from our concept of unconditional love. Said "conditions" lie within the thresholds of one's personality. Imagine if we stopped trying to own and control lady LOVE...for this high frequency emotion is the beginning and end of itself and does not need our assistance, accept to simply be beautiful vessels through which it can flow freely...attracting what is good and avoiding what is not good/conducive to the acquisition of more love (law of attraction and reciprocity). Love, in it's purest form, has the ability to grow and to purge...to produce and to prune. Only we get in it's way...with our conditions and misguided agreements we make with ourselves early on.
Some ancient spiritualists and philosophers deem it impossible for one's ego to let go of grievances in order to let love flow freely...but bc we need more love, for that reason alone I believe we are capable of embodying it...we just have to believe we can. Love is not an irony. It is not a contradiction...nor is it a euphemism for some other lower frequency emotion. Love is key to facing our deepest fears and prioritizing our most shallow thoughts. Love does not possess nor does it desire to be possessed. It is FREE. Or it is not love.
This New Moon signifies self love through rebirth and renewal. The idea of setting our intentions during the New Moon is so that we can manifest and execute our intentions by the Full Moon. Whether your intention is to attract your soul mate, grow spiritually or land your dream job, your ability to be a divine vessel through which pure divine love can flow will ultimately dictate your ability to manifest your intentions and what is intended for you. If you have not already set your love intentions, the earth is ripe to do so. If you have, meditate on them and prepare to operate from your new high frequency. Only a magnificent GOD would be so gracious to give us these celestial reminders that, like the seasons and the phases of the moon, self-regeneration and renewal is the cycle of life.
I, personally, am on the journey of relaxing the ego/personality so that love can always find me, dwell within me, and flow through me. If you do not know what journey you're on, then you have work to do. #gettowork

Mysteries, Traditions and Rituals

Early Morning Meditation:
Today's early morning spiritual rituals are for the less fortunate, the homeless and the hungry. 
Many of my personal rituals are a mixture of the traditions within my personal bloodline dating back to Yoruba land, across the diaspora into the Amerikas, 
in keeping with our sacred tools for survival of the atrocities of colonized slavery. For instance, parts of my lineage trace back to the the Lucumi out of West Africa who were transported from West Africa to Cuba, Brazil, Haiti, Trinidad and Puerto Rico in the 1800s. My people were forcefully baptized into Catholicism upon their arrival, and later overtime many were evangelized into Priests. The outcome was that my/our Ancestors acknowledged the Christian/Catholic teachings externally, while internally preserving their ancient connections to the Creator and creation. These mysteries, traditions and rituals are beautifully honored and interwoven throughout EVERYTHING I am and do. From the teachings of Black Jesus (not to be confused with any white depictions of this African deity) to the Odu of Orisanla, I am a gatekeeper/priestess/preserver of ancient/ol skool/Black African tradition. 
This morning I arose with the rooster, full of the divine intention of sending love, love and more love energetically, prayerfully and spiritually to the suffering. Do not for ONE second, beloved, discount or disregard the intrinsic power of spiritual ritual. To me, the lack of such is what's wrong with the world today. Praying that we do better in the new year. Sending peace and love to all!!

Creating Our Own Sacred Space

 Create your own sacred space.
(it's the gift that keeps on giving)
The keys to our inner peace rests within the sacred spaces that we create for ourselves...
Spaces that inspire meditation and deep thought.
Spaces choc full of wonderful aromas and prayer settings that
foster deepened relationships with God and the divine.
An ideal space for me inspires Sankofa;
I can relax my mind, reflecting on the past and planning my future.
The air should be full of oxygen rich plants and flowers
rendering the space ripe for growth,
as well as mental, physical and spiritual stimulation.
We need spaces that are ripe for new beginnings,
fertile ground for our maturity...
and when we know what brings us peace,
we should surround ourselves in it.
