Self-Love Series (Part 4 of 4): Speak Life

The words we use to describe our life, ourselves, those who surround us, world events, and more, shape our experiences with them.

Self-Love Series (Part 3 of 4): Beautiful Places to De-Stress

It wasn’t until age 31 that I learned the importance of taking a break. I had no choice after my mind and body screamed “Enough!” through depression, anxiety, and two hospital visits for pneumonia.

Self-Love Series (Part 1 of 4): Creating Space

It’s that time of year. You know the time. When the aisles of the stores are filled with chocolate candies with heart-shaped boxes, “I love you” cards, jewelry sales, roses, teddy bears, and more.

The Way to Peace on Earth

As I write these words, I can feel the weight of my ancestors. Those ancestors who were forced to come to the United States as slaves, those who survived the most brutal treatment imaginable, those who were killed in a manner not unlike the recent police shootings of unarmed black men, those who fought for the […]

There are moments in our lives, where emotions are moving through so strongly that all we can do is pray. Last night was one of those moments for me. I couldn’t even find the words for prayer, so I just asked for Guidance in what I could say that might support the movement toward Peace. […]

Healing Music: Washing Away the Old Self

Music is healing to my soul. It is absolutely one of my favorite things. While I have my “go to” songs that ‘take me there,’ spiritually and emotionally, every now and then, I find a new gem that is equally as healing. One of those gems is by a new Cuban-French duo, Ibeyi. I heard […]
