The mind is the source…

The mind is the source…

Keep calm and finish your dissertation.


My motivation for myself. And yes, I will be purchasing the onesie for my child as even more motivation.


Black women we made
With Sun in their skin
And wind in their walk.

"We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations."

— Anais Nin (via psych-facts)

Card of the Day… [7.25.2014]

The Wheel of Fortune

Move people, move!

It’s a 7-7-7 day, so what better day than today for the Wheel of Fortune to appear?  So what is a 7-7-7 day?  It’s the 7th month, the 25th day of the month, (2+5 = 7) and we are in a 7 year (2+0+1+4 = 7).  Many know 7 to be a lucky number, or a divine number and these energies are precisely aligned with the Wheel of Fortune.

The Wheel calls for us to take advantage of any and all opportunities that come our way because even the little things, as the wheels of life turn, and they always do, can become big things.  This is about L.U.C.K. (Laboring Under Correct Knowledge) so that when opportunities do arrive, we are poised to seize them with all we’ve got.

And with Jupiter’s recent transit into Leo, this means we need to look towards expansion in our creative lives, to become more playful, to allow ourselves to shine in whatever it is we do.  Soak up the limelight, but don’t hog it.  Remember generosity is a hallmark of Leo energy too and being generous is a good way of paying homage to the energies that brought us to the place of receiving grandly.

Wheels turn, or at least they should.  So this is about creating momentum, so our wheels don’t get caught in ruts; so we don’t find ourselves in the driver’s seat going nowhere fast.

This is a time to develop our own personal definition of what Fortune means and then chart the course for how to get there…just don’t forget to leave room to let the Universe do its thing!  Be open, don’t let your rut be small thinking, overthinking or not thinking at all.  Move sagaciously, move freely, move like only you can!

Affirmation: I will the wheels of life to align me with the grandest manifestation of my destiny.

  • Me: I love my body so much. I love being a womban! Women are god's greatest creation. We grow entire human beings and are so resilient and soft.
  • Me on my period: This is the devil's work.
