Whew!!! Sistahs, I have been traveling and doing some needs assessments this week for my job. I realize that for some people the passion of life is gone - they are just waiting. Perhaps deep inside they want something to change but the action of taking a step towards that change is not happening.
I know that sometimes you have to sit with what IS - just be in the emotion and figure things out AND my SiStahs there is a time when you let out a deep breath, GET UP and continue on. One of my Buddhist teachers told a class one time that the practice of meditation is not in-action - you don't just watch the world go by while you pray and meditate. Being in that oneness with the God/Goddess Creator is the fuel to ignite your passion. The insight developed in those quiet moments gives me the will to say no to all of the 'man-made' reality. I can easily see that no person, no place or condition has power over me. In fact that is the mantra for the days as we continue on in our LOVE FEST:
NO PERSON, NO PLACE OR CONDITION HAS POWER OVER ME.
If someone offends you, inside say this affirmation. If you are in an environment that makes you feel passionless, say this affirmation. If a condition arises that you feel stressed over, say this affirmation. If practiced sincerely, you will begin to see the light of opportunity in front of you that can help you change anything that needs to be changed. The Creator/God/Goddess/Mother/Father/God is the ONLY POWER in your life. Nothing from without can change that fact. Once this truth is embodied fully, you can walk through life full of passion - fearless - faithful and highly favored!
I give thanks to all those BEAUTIFUL SiSTARS who have commented on this LOVE FEST. I find your words so soothing and uplifting AND so full of LOVE!!!
On Healing Abuse...
ashe. thanks so much for sharing. i to have an abusive past..so many sistah's do and we first need to acknowledge those ugly truism's before we can start the healing process. how we do that is personal and should be at our pace..should be done with love and gentleness. i know i'm not alone and that is a great comfort to me!
sistah my sistah
you are not alone today
learn to love yourself
Thank you so much for that post. I am a work in progress!! I am so blad I ran across this site!!! I find the music healing and your posts stimulating! So keep it up Sistah!
thank you for your honesty and bravery you are a shinning beacon. Yes I have seen a lot of dysfunction in my life which was projected onto my own choice of partner. However in the process of healing I realise how important it is to stand and speak our truth, silence is a disease that we have adopted. It is important to be transparent clear and seen, to be witnessed so I dearly send you gratitude that you both cared to share with us.

Thank you for sharing. Healing from abuse is a difficult process but it makes you so much stronger! I experienced a relationship that was emotionally and verbally abusive and healing from that has been my focus for the past couple of years.
Your site has been a blessing to me my sista introduce me to your site (thanks KP)and I have already felt a change in me. This message really hits home and I'm working on me right now and this Love fest is really helping. I am seeing myself for the first time and not someone else's perception of me. I also experience verbal abuse and the healing is a very long process but worth it.
Thanks for your insight you are truly a blessing.

It is beautiful to see how the balm of LOVE keeps healing us all and making us stronger. I share all of who I am so that we don't ever have to feel ashamed of the journey we walked. I find life to be one big lesson and am doing my best to be the student. Thank you all for sharing your wisdom with me!
Lastly, SistahGoddess Ayida Honor of Native Trade and Soul Visions blog talk radio has invited me to do a special show with her and some other Sistahs on healing from abuse. The show will be on Saturday, March 27, 5pm (pst) to 7pm (pst) on blog talk radio - search Soul Visions. We are looking for you to call in and share your stories and healing victories!!! The more we talk about our healing the more others feel it is ok for them to heal themselves. Hope you all will join us.
Here is a little Minnie...
Well, time to press forward.
