Feminine Empowerment

Feminine Empowerment

November will be an amazing month for femininity, female empowerment and justice for mother earth. As our bodies come from mother earth, I'm called to share a little known fact about your astrological sign.

The sign that you know yourself to be is your sun sign. This is the part of you that you allow the light to shine one. However, how you manifested in this world is your earth sign. This is your physical body. It is the exact polar opposite of your sun sign. 

Beloved how do you feel about most people who are your opposite sign?

Final Soul Circle of 2016

Final Soul Circle of 2016

It is with my deepest GRATITUDE that I share these words. The healing experiences that I have held at Minka Brooklyn have often transcended time and space itself. They began as Community Healing Meditations. I remember the first   6 weeks when no one showed up. I would come prepared to hold space, setting everything up as if people were coming, and no humans would show up. However, my ancestors would come and sit with me every time. I would ask them "What am I doing wrong?" They would say nothing. I would ask "What do I need to do?" To which they would reply "You came to meditate, so meditate." So I would. I took one week off on the first Wednesday of June and wondered if returning was worth it. As always, I went into deep prayer and meditation to seek out guidance. I was told to go back with fresh eyes. For the first time, three people showed up. Then the next week more. Each time after that there were always people to heal and share space with. 

I'm so grateful, that my existence overflows with GRATITUDE. The younger me would say that my words are not enough to express my GRATITUDE, but the present me knows better. I am enough.

Yesterday was the final Soul Circle of this year... 

9 Chakra System

9 Chakra System

Along your meditative practice you may be guided to expand beyond your physical body. If you are welcoming spirit guides that serve the highest good then it will happen safely. Before meditation, say a prayer setting your intention to serve and be guided by the highest good through out your journey. Know that your words and acknowledgments have power.

Many are familiar with the 7 Chakra system as it is the most popular and widely used for spiritual develop and enlightenment. However there are more chakras that exist beyond the body. In this article we will focus on the two that are right above and below us. 

Letting go Ritual

Letting go Ritual

Beloved the purpose for letting go is for the benefit of everyone involved. Sometimes we hold onto people and things that aren't going anywhere and sometimes we hold onto things that are detrimental to our well being or the well being of others. When we hold grudges we reserve a special place for people in our hearts that is liken to a prison. Each person whom you have yet to forgive has their own individual cell, allowing the pain of the memory you share to scream through ones subconscious.

After traumatic experiences, it is imperative to cleanse oneself spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically.  Throughout this human experience you will come to observe that we are affected on multiple levels of our being by any given occurrence. After and during the process of cleansing you are able to find innerstanding from the pain of your wound. Through healing, you discover why you had to experience such hurt and what seeds were divinely planted in the soil of your sorrow. You may even be given foresight into the future as to what said seed will grow to become. 

An HIV Truth

An HIV Truth

I am still mourning the murder of my healing father Dr. Sebi. I have every right to feel the emotions inside me and need no external validation for doing just that. As a gorgeous black gay man in the holistic healing industry, at 26 years young, I've either avoided HIV or danced with it. Dr. Sebi was a fearless general who chose to take on the medical industrial complex with action. He fulfilled his purpose by dedicating his life to healing the body. I took his death so personal because it directly correlates with my life purpose. When I needed inspiration to fulfill me, he was there as a shining example.  I feel like no one else can hold space for the depth of my tears unless you're going through what I'm going through, or have overcome it.

I was looking for a reflection that I could only find in the mirror. Yet when I look at myself I see an ugly truth that masks my beautiful face. I see so much in this world that if I choose to say nothing then my festering words would manifest as a physical ailment. So I share these words not for pity, approval or recognition but for the liberation of my eternal soul. I push and keep away those that I LOVE to protect them because I must fearlessly do some things in this world that no one else is willing to do. I give thanks that the lone wolf is always well equipped for the cold winter. In the midst of my wandering I stopped  externally searching for answers from people who's financial security depends on their ability to lie or moreover blindly accept conditioning without question.

How to raise your Vibration

How to raise your Vibration

Beloveds in these times of mother earth's transition, our vibrations have naturally begun to raise in tandem with her's. We are moving out of darkness and into the light-- each of us becoming light beings with less denser vibrations. Mother earth is made of star dust. Our bodies are of the earth and our eternal souls are one with the divine source of all creation. It is in this capacity that we are all one. By choosing to flow with the divine nature of life, we are choosing to co-create with all that is, across space and time.

Space Clearing Ritual

Space Clearing Ritual

Clearing a space is pivotal to the well being of you and those you welcome in it. Not many people clear spaces when they leave and often times the remnants of their stay is left behind. This occurs spiritually, emotionally and mentally if all furnishings have been removed. In these times we must be as aware as possible for our own safety beloveds. We must do all that we can on our behalf in the process of co-creating our futures with the universe. This is a ritual I developed 4 years ago that clears a space on all levels. 

Dream Ritual: Clarity

Dream Ritual: Clarity

To seek clarity in a specific situation while you sleep, burn a hand full of sour sop leaves in a fire resistant bowl. Do not evade the smoke, but instead inhale it as regular breath. Do not waft the smoke to inhale all of it. Let it happen organically. Allow the leaves to burn while praying to Olokun of the waters, asking him to reveal the deep mysteries of a situation clearly in your dreams and be specific. If you simply wish to have vivid dreams change the prayer/intention to simply have vivid dreams and recall them. For full ritual see post...

Jupiter in Libra

Jupiter in Libra

Dearest Libras 

Since your last solar return you may have felt overlooked in terms of success and expansion. It may even have felt like everyone around you is getting the blessing they worked for but not you. Astrologically speaking, Jupiter was in Virgo. This may have inspired you to feel ALMOST fulfilled or that you're ALMOST getting it right, even when everyone else sees the work you do as marvelous....
