Beyonce – Formation


Just to let you (the world) know – I am still all BLACK! – Unapologetically BLACK*

I like my baby w| baby hair and afros. I like my negro nose w| Jackson Five nostrils.


In a country, in a world filled w| hypocrisy.

Blackness is not what whiteness considers virtuous. But yet, our culture, our skin color, our beautiful features are mimicked by those same person’s who hate us – but are so, and have been, infatuated w| everything that makes us divine.

Beyonce is in solidarity w| her fellow black women – and men.

With the Tidal (the music streaming service owned by Jay Z and friends) announcement on Friday, $1.5 million will be donated to the Black Lives Matter organization as well as other civil rights groups including: New York Million Hoodies, Hands Up United, NY Justice League, the Oscar Grant Foundation and the Trayvon Martin Foundation.



This is exactly what we need from our black celebrities – awareness, open discussions, conscious music and attributions to our communities.




Meditation – Spiritual Healing

For the past few years I’ve dealt with Chronic Urticaria (Hives), have had allergy tests, been to allergists, dermatologists, a nephrologist (kidney doctor), multiple emergency rooms and to no avail. Only but to gain weight from multiple prednisone (steroid) treatments and other prescription drugs that did not cure the problem at root.

This started happening after my boyfriend, now fiancés 5-year old sister was diagnosed with AML Leukemia. We were there at the hospital every week during the 9 months following the diagnosis to the last day of her life. On top of this tragedy, we were going through financial issue at that time which caused stress. I did not know how to deal with my stress internally which I have come to find out affected my body’s hormonal balance.

I started to do research my own after being tired of the continuous hives, I paid attention to the times when the hives were at it’s worse – which was prior to, during and right after my monthly cycle. This led me to research hormonal imbalances.

I had my OB doctor prescribe a hormone test which was sent to a lab and showed all of my hormones were very low. This was the cause of the hives. My stress levels had totally through off my body’s hormone levels. I started a treatment of the following: Progesterone (prescription) along with these vitamins: Omega-3 Fish Oil, Adrenal, DHEA (Pure encapsulations), Vitamin B and D3 and Probiotics (Metagenics UltraFlora Balance). I also take lots of Vitamin C and every morning before work I drink 2 tablespoons of Bragg Unfiltered Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 cup warm water and honey (add to your own tasting) in order to cleanse my body.

I am still on my journey to being healed, but have come a long way from when this medical issue first introduced itself. Prior to all the stress and hives, I used to listen to Soundscapes music, write poetry/inspirational quotes almost every night and practice yoga with meditation. My New Year resolution is to get back to those things that kept me at peace and I hope this will put you also into that zone of spiritual completeness.

I came up with my own meditation mantra:
Everything is good – I am good
I Love – I am Loved
I Give – I Receive
Everything is good – I am good
I Learn – I Teach
I Listen – I Speak
Everything is good – I am good


Physical Benefits of Meditation

With meditation, the physiology undergoes a change and every cell in the body is filled with more prana (energy). This results in joy, peace, enthusiasm as the level of prana in the body increases.

On a physical level, meditation:

  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Lowers the levels of blood lactate, reducing anxiety attacks
  • Decreases tension-related pain, such as, tension headaches, ulcers, insomnia, muscle and joint problems
  • Increases serotonin production that improves mood and behavior
  • Improves the immune system
  • Increases the energy level, as you gain an inner source of energy

Mental Benefits of Meditation

Meditation brings the brainwave pattern into an relaxed state that promotes healing. The mind becomes fresh, delicate and beautiful. With regular practice of meditation:

  • Anxiety decreases
  • Emotional stability improves
  • Creativity increases
  • Happiness increases
  • Intuition develops
  • Gain clarity and peace of mind
  • Problems become smaller
  • Meditation sharpens the mind by increasing focus and expands through relaxation
  • A sharp mind without expansion causes tension, anger and frustration
  • An expanded consciousness without sharpness can lead to lack of action/progress
  • The balance of a sharp mind and an expanded consciousness brings perfection

Meditation makes you aware – that your inner attitude determines your happiness.

The Black Struggle – Black Lives Matter – Black Women – Black Men

I have not yet seen the movie, but some natives of Chicago, IL are not big fans of this film. As stated in the Chicago Tribune:

“So after all of the fighting, name-calling and political wrangling over the film’s title, “Chi-Raq” fails to illuminate the lives of the many Chicagoans who go to bed with the sound of gunfire outside their windows and wake up to the news of yet another murder. While critics have hailed the satirical film as a victory for Lee, Chicagoans go home empty-handed”.

Me personally, I think all the cast for this film should have came directly from Chicago. I remember the casting calls for Straight Outta Compton – the casting calls were done in Gardena, Compton – areas where real blacks in the struggle, who knew first hand resided. Unfortunately, this film seems to have a lot of big Hollywood names.

But, I commend Spike Lee for shedding light on an issue black communities across the United States deal with on a daily – gun violence.
