Black joy

The warriors of any struggle, themselves, are never afforded the opportunity to breathe. Their breath, always tethered to the fight, is constrained, burdened, and belabored. This is truth for Black women. Hearts coopted by humanity on the frontlines, fighting for others to have a chance. The liberation granted to them upon their first breath slips…

Breathe fully in life

In every breath experience all that is living and moving around you. Life is not to be experienced so rooted to the ground in a single moment. It is to be lived as the wind moves through, up, and over mountains, feeding all of the streams that seed life. To live life only in the…

Spirit of the mountain

No mountain fights for the continued relevance that humans so desperately seek. It simply knows where to stand and how to be. That is enough for it to capture our hearts with such awe.

Grace

The call of grace is upon every heart to cultivate the breath for humans to honor the space that they take. It is time for each heart to honor their path. Not doing so has caused everyone to spill into each other’s timelines in ways that are weighing the world down. Not until we all…

Move in Oneness

To move in oneness is to know that your body can be deeply rooted and your soul elevated as it is moved by the light of the sun all in the same breath.

Our rainbows are within

The rainbow you seek is inside of you. The universe is an inner/outer reflection of who we are inside. The world fights because of the compounded effects of our own internal conflicts. The world loves because I love myself and you love yourself. We must stop waiting for our hearts to smile when we spot…

As nature moves

As she walks we move with her, in her, and all around her. It is she who we live for. She is the one who grounds us in our humanity.

Don’t fake anything, anymore, anywhere, for anyone, at anytime

The Fake-it-until-you-make-it mentality is now officially obsolete! While it was used by many to overcome what were thought to be dire circumstances, it was never meant to be a default survival mechanism for the rest of your life. Fake-it-until-you-makeit will land just about anyone in a misrepresentation of their truth, misappropriating their wisdom, and/or crossing…

Allowing the journey of your soul to be most relevant

Once you understand that joy is more than a moment, it becomes easy to see that what is most important in life is the journey of your soul, not your brain. Life is not to be led step-by-step. So, there are no rungs on any ladder that you were authentically designed to climb. Ladders didn’t…

Making joy more than a habit of everyday life

People try to engage with joy from a place in their brain. In our brains, we are told that if we want to learn something, we should study it. If we want to perfect something, we should practice it. If we want to change our behavior, we should go through a regimented process of doing…

Why your smile matters

There is a theory of quantum physics, metaphysics, and even string theory that defines the purpose of the universe as a force/entity/existence that seeks to observe itself.  What glimpse into the world does the universe have? Most will, first, think of the brain. We call you to quickly remember that we use such a small…

Love yourself

Love yourself all the way to joy, and embrace the feeling of the sun in every breath that you breathe, until the whole of your body peacefully illuminates the golden power of joy from within, like the flower that you already are and always have been.

Where 1+1=3

There can only be one dream and that dream requires you to dream of being you so that I can be me. In that space of you being you and me being me, we will find ourselves as one. Things add up differently when you look at the world with your heart. Where there is…

More than surviving the dream

Do not try to survive that which is, at best, a path to your own cultural undoing. This is what I so want to say to all people of difference who come to this land chasing a dream.   Do not come to this place and try to survive it. It is already lost, a zombie…

Honor thyself

The journey into joy is a model of honoring who you are. It comes from a deep and data-driven understanding of how you intuitively move through the world. It is a model that inspires leaders to know themselves and to trust their intuition, so much so that they can most authentically lead from their hearts….

Detaching from the code

Code-switching has entangled far too many leaders in the very tongues of those who oppress them, and it must stop if we are ever to be free of the many ways in which we harm each other through our words and basic needs and desires to communicate effectively with one another. We all know what…
