TESTAMENT

Having the heart to discover Beauty requires a pure heart which means an open and loving heart. True beauty is more than color, shape, form, expression, art, love etc....for me, it's more about perspective, healing, peace and harmony that is refreshing to the soul. To me it is uniquely the closest embodiment of God. All my lives, I've been complimented or envied or treated differently because of my "exotic" look or my strong character. These experiences have shaped me to a degree but they have certainly never defined me because I am not my image. I am a soul traveling The Way of Grace just trying to find my place in the world like everyone else and remaining loyal to my heart and my God. I am simply growing and Becoming. I find my truth in my own patterns or the sacred language I have with The Most High who nurtures and guides me. This relationship is True Love in my book of testaments. And the magnificent understanding energy I feel on a collective conscious level is what continues to make my heart soar. We are never lost....we are simply rediscovering the truth. Rebirth is a process of everlasting life and the ebbs and flows of life. How we choose to handle and react to waking life is a testament to our true nature and daily growth. I encourage everyone to find the beauty that matters most. I encourage everyone to find peace in the simple. Wake with purpose and dream sweetly Dear Universe. Peace be with you.

REAL TALK! Happy God Day Rosa Parks and Bob Marley!

The Beautiful Aquarius New Moon, ROSA PARKS, BOB MARLEY Setting My Intentions, Trusting in the Good Lord - The Truth ALWAYS AND FOREVER. I am eternally fascinated by those irrational, incompetent, hypocritical and spiteful bad seeds who are placed in positions of authority, to be a modern-day plantation overseer and try to manage a situation by using careless bullying which is demeaning to their "subordinates", while acting like crybabies and drama queens/kings to use their vindictive and spiteful ways to paint the picture from their perspective, faking their way through life, when the rest of the world knows the truth. The truth being that respect goes both ways no matter where you fall on the food chain, and those who use fear to intimidate and cause unnecessary drama, are the problem itself. Bullies are the lesser of mankind, who only cares for themselves. A bully is insecure and lacks understanding and empathy while demanding the most and getting the least respect because they haven't TRULY earned it and no one likes them. Power tripping egos and lack of consideration for your fellow neighbor breed more insecurity and become a dark hole of inappropriate behavior which is detrimental to the well being of all. I have always been the type of person to see the truth in a situation, with the balls to call out the stinking dead elephant in the room. No one in their right mind wants to promote negative energy unless it's on their behalf. Whereas good energy is the manifestation of warmth, care, happiness and a wealth of good enterprise for all involved. The goal being an abundant garden of respect, manners, and mindfulness to nurture rather than alienate and isolate which is destructive to all. As business owners, managers, executives, employers, employees and other positions of TRUE authority, I applaud you for encouraging the magnificent spirit of life which is the gift that keeps on giving, as the real power lies in the people and reputation is everything. I encourage anyone who is being taken advantage of, robbed of spirit, being abused, manipulated or worse to stand strong in your truth and honesty which is what the world needs. A person who abuses power and creates an environment of chaos and fear, because they are not strong enough or qualified is not decent and needs a major reality check. Far too many good people have to play the part of remaining quiet and allowing a demon to cave in on themselves....but unfortunately that takes too long in most cases while many suffer the fool. It is imperative to use your free speech, humanity and call a spade a spade, but the reality is you have to be delicate. Only then will you find the truth and put the responsibility of each one of us, for the greater good on the path to growth, which is ultimately UNITY.

So what do I advise, in most cases, is to be patient, pay attention, get in where you fit in as time tells all. Invoke the spirit of those teachers, warriors, role models, kings and queens who have fought for your freedom and well being. Today I invoked the spirit of Rosa Parks and Bob Marley, with whom I feel a deep gratitude and respect for amongst many MANY others who were strong and conscious enough to never allow us to travel back to the worst of mankind. With their lives, they chose to be the Lion and Lioness to teach in practice how to exist for a better tomorrow....peacefully. So be COOL and allow the individual to ruin their own lives, while you gain allies, form a tribe and a set of values that protect, promote understanding and co-exist well together. There is no room for fear. Trust in the Most High. In general, you will not get far in life, if you make it your primary goal to oppress and subject others to your terrible behavior, as you create enemies. It's okay to ask questions to anyone, it's not ok to be treated as less than and bullied because you have a sincere genuine concern. Again, bullies get their fuel by instilling fear and threatening your livelihood.....this is ABUSE of power. So, never let someone disrupt your peace of mind and sacred heart. Never allow the berating and harassment, subtle and unsubtle, to distract you from your inner strength and your human rights. Stand for the greater good always and forever. P.S. If someone is quick to tamper with your livelihood, rather than use interpersonal moral relations, then don't be afraid to get the REAL authorities. Keep on Keeping On Fam and Live in Truth Always and Forever. Your heart will shine and soar when you do the right thing. - Queen Bri

Thoughts on this Journey: Transgender Pregnancy

I saw this article recently and it blew my mind....

AOL TRANSGENDER ARTICLE

My thoughts on Transgenders having babies: Men giving birth is just TOO Much. MAJOR BOUNDARY. There is NOT enough research over a long period of time to suggest that this method is even safe, possible or morale. Besides, Far too many people already give birth to human beings they have no intention of truly nurturing, affording and being responsible for which ultimately falls on the taxpayer dollar or abuses the reliance of the welfare system and places unnecessary stress/pressure on the structure of our society (jail, orphanages, poverty line, crime, lack of proper home training/education which means dumber people who hold us all back and down) while sending the wrong message to future generations. Not to mention, that the world population has more than quadrupled over the past 50 years. So people are dying slower while populating faster than ever, not growing food quickly enough to support these mouths due to improbable environmental concerns, economies rise and fall, the gap between rich and poor is vast, on top of this new "trend" that is suggesting transgenders can impregnate themselves, and the conditioning of distracted dishonest media confusion and lack of genuine goodwill due too the current times? So, we have a shit for brains leadership in high and powerful places, because we've lost faith or common sense for traditional tried and true measures/methods that help us to stay cautious and responsible (wisdom). We cannot give power to people who are willing to say, try and do everything without proper cautionary measure. I don't want to live in a world where we abuse ourselves and our source of life. We spend billions on sending people to explore space, wars, commercialism, prisons, and shit we don't need and meanwhile lose our sense of self, sanctity and sanity in the madness of trying to search for our souls, identity, values etc. So the bottom line/questions, is why open up all these radical experiments which have no proof of succeeding or being good for society at large? Although, I have always supported the Transgender community and more specifically the right to be free, as with anything, you need boundaries as there is an edge for a reason.

In Honor of those innocent transgender lives lost, I want to take a moment to appreciate the voice of Hip-Hop transgender artist, Rocco Katastrophe. We had the honor of working together 8 years ago during a truly enjoyable experience that was supported and captured by the super awesome Director Sarah Tricker. Despite, this topic being controversial then and now, and me being a heterosexual without a change of gender, I have always empathized with those good-natured individuals, who have been oppressed and seek understanding and acceptance. I feel a great deal of pride in the progress and awareness that has been made over the years and the acknowledgment of continued service to humanities. We all need to see our likeness in another to feel good and connected whether that be a community, tribe, family, spouse, pets etc. Coming out of any dark closet inspires and uplifts the spirit in all. The arts and humanities have always been the perfect platform to communicate thoughts, feelings, desires etc. It's the root of all that enriches our psyche and grants us energy outside of caring for our bodies and environments. Despite the fact that I won't be signing up to support transgender men or women giving birth anytime soon, I do support those who aim to feel at home in their own bodies and hearts and choose the safe path of peace and enlightenment. So 80,000 YouTube views and 8 years later, we still stay the course of human rights because the goal is to be better. Your gender does not determine your individual self or sanity. Look for the CONSISTENT good content of one's character (mindset) always and forever.

I Love My Hair, But It Will Never Define Me

Styling and Profiling.

On This Journey....

Happy Saturday World! Love to Love You. It's been a while since I've posted. Reflection and meditation have always been a part of who I am and what I value. To quiet my mind, and to get in touch with my true self, it's the most reassuring balance I have. One of my goals this year is simply to write more, meditate more, dance more, sing more, love more, praise more.

In my thoughts today, I have to ask the following. 

What's on my mind? This country's and planet's well being. Why so many people are quick to argue rather than reason or discuss? Why do so many people abuse themselves physically and emotionally, and then look to another to solve their problems and make excuses for themselves if they don't get what they want? Why do so many people have a problem owning their own faults and quick to make excuses for themselves rather than improve their situation? Why do people push away, run from or fear what is good for them? Why do people abuse and neglect what is beautiful rather than nurture and support it? Why do so many people get more energy caring about someone else's lifestyle and sexual orientation rather than improving and focusing on their relationships? Why are so many people quick to use manipulation to get what they want rather than put in the good honest work to truly earn it? Why does the media promote stupidity, violence, fear and superficial material bullshit to distract the minds of the majority of the country and then act like the world is going to hell and they aren't partially responsible? Why does the media give power to the worst kind of examples, who suggest your daughters should buy their bodies rather than appreciate their natural beauty? Why do men call women bitches and hoes and act like they deserve respect for their ignorance? Why do people act like bitches and hoes and have no dignity? You can't run from stupid aka less enlightened people....they are everywhere, so you might as well teach one another. Why do smart good people practice more patience, when in reality they need to fight for what's right and with urgency so stupid doesn't get the final say? Why are people so quick to challenge a qualified Alpha with grace, rather than support a leader who is watching out for the majority's best interest? Why do people spend so much money on bullshit they don't need, then complain that they don't make enough money? Why are so many people unfulfilled? Why does the same burger costs $15 dollar in Manhattan and $7 in Brooklyn? Why do people fear what doesn't look like them, rather than looking into the soul and content of another's character, patterns and behavior? Why do people demean others to make themselves feel better? Why do people allow themselves to act as a blackhole of depression and spread their disease knowingly to their families, "friends", communities etc? Why do people hate on someone who is wise and handling their business rather than ask them advice and compliment them on making the world a better place? The media, the government and each individual is responsible for holding themselves accountable for their well being each and everyday. Someone, who has no self respect for themselves or this planet will have no problem disrespecting you. So be mindful of who and what you believe in. Be mindful of what you put in your body, your mind, and soul, because it becomes you. Balance is key in everything we know and do, without grace and beauty, we have nothing and this starts within. So don't complain about the world being a terrible place. Get your mind and heart right. Stop doing drugs and eating food that hurt and numb you, stop acting like you have to work hard to get anywhere when in reality you have to work smart. Don't bite off more than you can chew, don't produce more than you can afford to care for. I believe the majority of these answers can all be brought back to "FEAR" and lack of spirit and direction. The Devil is real and in each and everyone of us. We must be strong enough to conquer our own devil, demons, fears, insecurities, as the aura and energy we put out there comes back to us. Meanwhile ignoring the constant NOISE that spreads it's insanity through our consciousness, communities, peers etc. Everyone gets in where they fit in, so what happens when you have nowhere else to go? SO TELL A HATER TO GO FUCK THEMSELVES! I am so tired of those in power rewarding ugliness and making a mockery of our story and image. I am so tired of my fellow citizens buying into the bullshit that is force fed to you, when you could just as easily read a good book, go to the gym, meditate in nature and learn to love and enrich yourself. I would love for my fellow citizens to value themselves more than the the fake news, fake celebs, and distractions that infest and rot the minds of our society. STOP REWARDING BUFFONERY WITH YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY. It's not entertainment, it's ridiculous. Tell the serpent to leave and never come back each and everytime. You will find each time you get stronger, and this is the process of evolution and the path to inner peace. It starts with the belief in your own beauty and sacred heart. Would you rather hide your true self from the world, or work to put yourself in better company, which starts with your yourself. So remember to be gentle and compassionate with yourself. Believe in yourself, not by comparing what you don't have vs. someone else, but because you are truly proud of yourself and humble enough to share that wonderful energy to those deserving of your love. This is the beginning of well being. Protect your chi. Practice minimalism and get in touch with the truest values of all. Go find yourself and don't allow others to brainwash, abuse, or manipulate you. Do not be prey as the only the strong SURVIVE & THRIVE. You are a blessed child of GOD, so act like one. #peacebewithyou

Refresh Daily

Everyday I refresh. Everyday I meditate. Everyday I take a moment to breathe.

Even when the inner and outer pressure becomes too much, I remind myself that it's not the end of the world and stressing won't make it better. I search for something beautiful that brings me peace and a sense of well-being.

Refresh daily.
