Sistahs, I woke up this morning with Leadership Thoughts on my mind...I visualized how a great powerful Queen would wake up and from her window access her Queendom. She would smile in gratitude and with a sense of accomplishment. All of her hard work paid off and now she has the utmost pleasure in witnessing everything she has built! How powerful and free she was in my visualization.
So what is stopping you from ruling your world? This was the question that came to me as I came back to waking reality. Nothing, I said simply. A friend in the Yoruba tradition read me an Odu that spoke of sacrifice, meaning that anything good that can be obtained in this life requires effort and perseverance. I had always remembered this because it has rang true for me. I noticed that when I set out to achieve a goal it was always clear what needed to be sacrificed to move forward yet for many people they can not imagine "giving up" such a thing...
Often, the Queendom is really right around the corner but for some reason many women take the off-road path or they are following someone else's path because a tradition has told them too or societal expectation is that they "should" do this...Again, the question is clear "What is stopping you from ruling your world?" If the Creator who made us wanted us to assume the role of dutiful assistant then why are we capable of GREAT THOUGHTS?! Why not have had us born with the mind that is feeble and only worthy of being told what to do? So many people want you to believe you were never made for a Queendom - that your place is honorably behind them...as if you will attain your purpose assisting them with their purpose. Sistahs, I will tell you a secret - which really is no longer a secret except to us - the Liberation of your consciousness will set the healing of this world in a powerful motion! The minute YOU decided to seek your own DIVINITY the world will rapidly RISE to meet YOU!
The beautiful part of your world is that it will include ALL that you desire. You can reshape it to fit your needs. Nothing is impossible - you are the Creatrix! If you don't know where to begin ask the Creator to sit before you the truth of your life - in this truth you will see what has brought you forth and what has hindered you from there the brave steps of moving forward will begin...I hold the space from my part in the universe and I too am in the process of creating my Queendom. Give thanks.

Love yourself, Love yourself, Love yourself
cause who is going to love you if
you don't love yourself?
Be who you want to be RIGHT NOW!
Stop waiting for tomorrow
Stop worrying about who you use to be.
Everyday do a little to towards your dream
make a vision board and place it within eye's sight of your bed,
gaze, unwavering at your dream vision each day, each moment...
chant "I Love Myself" two thousand times each day until you have no
choice but to believe it!
Stop telling lies about yourself,
stop saying your fat, your broke, your not this or that...
if you can't see yourself right now as a Goddess then
be WILLING to one day see yourself as a Goddess
Drop the dead people,
the people that have stopped living a long time ago,
surround yourself with people who are alive,
who dream and share their dreams,
who respect you enough to not weigh you down constantly
with stagnation and reasons why something can't happen...
Stop worrying about what others will think,
they going to always think what they are going think
AND you are always going to GROW and EXPAND
If your head hurts and your back is aching then
maybe just maybe...you have been trying to fit yourself
into that box again - you know the one that is too small,
so crowded and worthless...
the world can't benefit at all from you playing small...
we NEED you to be a BIG HUGE SHINNING GODDESS
I wish I could say Money doesn't matter, but I would be lying...
I wish I could say Money TOTALLY matters but I would be lying...
Don't settle for less than what you deserve AND
Remember how you said you wouldn't do that again,
but you did?
It's ok, you just had to learn that lesson again.
Stop beating yourself up,
even a Goddess has her most human times...
Some of the most fiercest warriors I have ever met
were kind and loving people...
You can be serious and like laughing and smiling...
Wombyn on top,
Wombyn completely satisfied,
Wombyn vibrating with the Light of Spirit!
Create, create, create...
Wombyn are creative beings,
Bring your dream into our reality,
help us all with your vision...
again, You Are Needed...
Peace and Hugs

Sistahs, I was on the phone with a good Sistah friend the other night AND we started
talking about Sistah-hood. I mean Sistahs supporting one another, not just buying their stuff or pumping them up but collaborating with them! I really don't bring up the topic often but it is worth a short conversation...There is really no need for the feeling that someone is competing against you or can possibly TAKE anything that has divinely come from you. You are so unique in your creative capacity that out of all the people on the planet your finger prints are unique to you AND only you - so this means AIN'T NOBODY LIKE YOU ON THE EARTH.
As my friend and I spoke I got the message, "There is enough room on the planet for 10 Billion Goddess bringing forth 10 Billion fruits from their wombs! AND from there - THERE IS STILL MORE ROOM!!!" Sistahs, I don't think it is enough to create in silos anymore - we got to start collaborating to put forth even larger fruits of our success. The ole' saying "where two or more are gathered..." is true. Something powerful comes from collaboration.
I know for many of us it is hard to trust...we are suspicious more often than not. I talk to many talented folks that have trouble with their businesses and services - the reason I often see is they have a lack of trust and are closed to collaboration. Maybe this is with good reason but will one incident forever hold you in a pattern of stagnation? Failure often results in learning. I have had a few failed partnerships and often it came down to communication. Here are some of my tips from my own experience:
1. Access if it is the right time for you to collaborate with a partner.
2. Have several conversations with a potential partner. In fact work on a small volunteer project with them to see how you both work together. Volunteer projects are great for this because a good partners will work on any worthwhile project - money related or not with the same amount of zeal and drive for success.
3. What talents are each partner bringing to the table AND are they compatible and somewhat equal? You don't want to get saddled with the bulk of a project while someone is just adding stamps to letters. Plan out what the partnership will look like and see if it is satisfactory for all involved.
4. Be clear about your own personal goals and work ethic. Are you like a "dog-on-a-pant-leg" strictly "A" type who comes to meetings prepared, on-time and ready go, then you probably don't want to partner with someone who is not timely and shows up with more excuses than a plan OR partner with someone who is soooo busy that your project is just one of many on their plate. You don't have to be alike but make sure in the basics you are compatible.
5. Partnership don't have to be life-long. From each project you will learn and perfect your own guidelines for the next project. Don't be afraid to give things a try, just keep in mind your own personal mission - make sure your collaboration fits into that picture as well.
Look forward to seeing more Sistahs working together!
Peace and Hugs,
