If you have never heard of a vision board or if you have never created a vision board, click this link to read a blog post I wrote to my single sisters about how to create a vision board.

Please scroll down to the picture showing the vision board and start reading from there, because anything before that is talking to single ladies.

What is a vision board? A vision board is simply a tool used to see your goals, dreams and visions that you’ve written down on paper, translated into visual form by using real images or pictures.

For example; you wrote in your journal that you one day want to visit the Fiji Islands. You saw a picture in the magazine of the Fiji Islands, you can cut that picture out of the magazine and paste it to your vision board. Now, you can look at that dream and visualize yourself on the Fiji Island.The vision board itself has no power to make anything happen. It can not answer any prayers, and your faith should not be in the vision board itself. It is just a tool used to see your visions and dreams before your eyes by using real pictures. Got it?

Your faith should always be engaged in trusting the Heavenly Father and his word that these things are coming to pass.

It is not unscriptural that you are writing down the visions and dreams that you believe God is showing you for your life.

In fact, the scriptures teaches us to write the vision down and make it plain or clear!

Habakkuk 2:2-3 KJV

And the Lord answered me, and said write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it!

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.God said that he will give us the desires of our hearts if we delight ourselves in him. If you really want to know what it means to truly delight yourself in the Lord click here.

Psalm 37: 4

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

God also said, when the people do not have a vision for their life, they perish. You need to dream and you need to have goals. It keeps your life in forward movement and unstuck.

I don’t know if you know it or not, but you were created to do good things and you were also created for good works. I will share with you what the scriptures says about this.

Proverbs 29:18 KJV

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepth the law, happy is he.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them,God wants you to believe him for the impossible. He said, if you can believe Him for the impossible, you can have it!

Matthew 19:26 NIV

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.

Now that we’ve established that it’s not unbiblical to create a vision board and that our faith must be engaged in the Heavenly Father at all times, lets find out how to get the best use out of our vision board.

13 Principles I Use To Manifest My Goals And Dreams On My Vision Board!

1. After you have created your vision board, place it in an area where you can look at it at least twice a day.

I love looking at my vision board when I wake up in the morning and right before I go to bed. I have my vision board displayed in open view in my bedroom so when ever I walk pass it, I can see it.

2. Believe: Really believe this can one day happen for you. Believe that you are worthy to receive anything good in your life.

happy-black-woman-with-banner_1149-19441732944934.jpg

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

3. Take at least 15 minutes daily to concentrate on your vision board. Take inventory of what you are asking to come into your life, by doing so, you are ingraining the images into your subconscious mind because what you pay attention to in your life is what you are attracting to you.

For example, you want to cut out eating sweets from your diet, but you are watching TV shows about baking desserts and yummy treats. On your job, people are constantly bringing doughnuts, cakes and snacks, and you are around this all day.

What do you think is going to happen eventually? You are going to give in to the temptation because those images are ingrained in your mind from you paying attention to them all day long.

4. Visualize yourself with your goals and dreams. Imagine what it would feel like to obtain your goals and dreams. Pretend that you are actually living your new life when you look at your vision board.

Do not just look at your board but actually feel all those wonderful feelings as you are pretending as if you’ve already obtained the goals and dreams on your vision board. What you are doing at this moment is engaging your faith.

stress-free-640x426-1783100973.jpg

Remember when you were a kid and you engaged in pretend play? You were so happy and so engaged in the process of play, that you got so wrapped up in it and forgot it was just play.

You would even get into an arguement with your friends, sisters and brothers about, “it’s my red car” and neither one of you owned a car but in that moment it became real for you.

Take that same childhood naivety into your pretend play while visualizing yourself with your new life.

Romans 15:13 KJV

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

5. Say the scriptures and confessions on your vision board out loud, so it sinks down into your subconscious mind and heart.6. Choose to share your vision board with people you really trust and with your purpose partners (someone who is just as invested in seeing your visions, goals and dreams come to pass)

If you do not have anyone in your life that you can share your vision board with, then keep it between you and the Heavenly Father.

7. The benefit of sharing your vision board with someone you trust and who believes in you, is to have a partner to play your childhood game with (Pretend Play).

The both of you get together and start pretending that you are driving in your Lexus 570 and you are traveling to Maui tomorrow and you gotta hurry up so that you won’t miss your flight. It’s lots of fun to do. I play this game with my husband a lot!

8. Stay away from doubting Thomas and negative Nancy. These are people who causes you to doubt, abort or cancel your dreams and goals altogether.

The moment you realize that a person is negative in an area where you are trusting God to manifest for you, shut it down and stop talking to that person about that subject! Stop sharing with them immediately.9. Never come into agreement with anyone who is speaking opposite of what you believe God to manifest in your life. You should speak back to anyone who is being negative about your dream.

Single ladies, if you want to be married, when you hear someone say there are a shortage of men, you say, in a kind manner (you do not have to be rude), girl men are plentiful and besides, I only need the one that God hand picked just for me.

10. Always pray to the Heavenly Father and ask for guidance as you navigate to your new life.

Ask Him to give you His best in every situation and detach from the outcome.
Don’t try and figure out how it is going to happen. Your job is to believe and trust God.11. Read books and look at testimonies online of others who have obtain their dreams in the areas you want to obtain yours. This will keep your faith engaged in your goals and dreams.

12. When the spirit of truth prompt your heart to do something towards your dreams and goals, take fast actions.

13. Lastly, you never talk against the things you believe to happen for you on your vision board by doubting because it will take longer to come or not come to pass at all.

James 1:6-7

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord

These are my 13 principles I use to manifest my goals and dreams on my vision board. Now go and create you a masterpiece Vision Board.

God’s Way verses the World’s Way On Money and Debt

Holy Bible and money

Today I want share with you a biblical perspective on how we (believers of the Bible) should handle our finances. I also want to do a comparison of how we’ve always been taught by the world’s system to handle our finances, verse God’s way of handling our finances. I will also expose the truth about debt from a Biblical perspective.

I must warn you that if you have been living with credit cards, and getting loans for everything you own and paying monthly payments on your possessions, this is going to shake your confidence because what I am about to expose you to right now, probably goes against everything you’ve been taught and everything you know about money and debt. It takes having real trust in the Heavenly Father to handle your money the Biblical way, verse the world’s way.

You will find out that when the rug is pulled out from under you, and what I mean by that is, when all of your options are taken away from you to use other people’s money to fund your material possessions and your dreams, that your security has been in the world’s system and not in God’s system. True financial security comes when you owe no man but to love him, false security comes when you are a slave to the lender and have borrowed the lender’s money to fund your dreams or your possessions.

pexels-photo-260024.jpeg

I want you to know this blog post is all about me as well, I don’t get a pass. I was hesitant to release this blog post because I didn’t want to sound like I had it all together. My husband and I are still working towards handling our finances the way the Bible instructs us to. It’s hard and tempting, going back and forth and dancing with what the world offers you, verses taking a stand to handle your money God’s way. I am not judging you and I do not have it all together, but my husband and I are working on a better financial future. I have been released to release this blog post, in the hopes of getting believers of the Bible to see the truth verses a lie on how we been taught to handle our finances.

Just because the world deems it normal to take out loans of every kind, apply for credit cards, make vows, pledges, give money and possessions without truly looking at all the other bills you owe or counting up the cost, do not make it the Biblical thing to do.

We live in a country where debt is supreme, but what I am learning from a biblical perspective is that Cash is King. If you do not have the money in your possession to fund it, then you save up for it and pay cash or you live without it, or God will bless you with it through someone else, instead of becoming a slave to the lender and borrowing it. Now I know we are taught about good debt and bad debt, like borrowing money to fund your degree, a home and business but from a Biblical perspective all debt is bad.

I know most people have no other option but to borrow funds for their schooling, home and business, it will help put them in a better financial situation. But even in these cases, you are still a slave to lender until you set yourself free from the snare of the fowler, you are not exempt, neither are you the exception to the rule when it comes to handling your finances the biblical way.

Any debt from a biblical perspective is being a slave to the lender. This article is only talking about what the bible has to say about money.

Now I love Dave Ramsey philosophy about money because it comes from a biblical view and after listening to his talk on money, it is a goal of mine to adopt a biblical perspective on how I handle my finances.

Now let us dispel, expose and learn some truths about money from a biblical perspective verses the world’s perspective. Click this link to learn 250 Bible verses about money.

student-loan-debt-1160848_1280.png

1. Debt : a state of being under obligation to pay or repay someone or something in return for something received : a state of owing deeply in debt to creditors.

The world offers us so many ways to get ourselves into debt, like credit cards, car loan, mortgage loan, business loan, payday loan, furniture loan, appliances loan, co-signing for some one else’s debt, making pledges, student loan, banks are offering a program where you can borrow against your own money therefore making you in debt to yourself while they are making interest off of your money, and if you forfeit the rules that they established for you to borrow against your own money, your money becomes the bank money and you loose your money to the bank. Leasing cell phone, borrowing money from friends, families and foes. It is so easy to get into debt.

Now let’s read what God thinks about all of this, put your seat belt on, you are about to see things in the word of God that you probably have never seen before.

This is God’s will for his people:

Deuteronomy 15:6
For the Lord your God will bless you as He has promised you, and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you.

Deuteronomy 28:12
The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

God said, when we are trusting in him and live our lives after his ways, He would bless us and we will lend to many nations, BUT YOU WILL NOT BORROW, we will rule over nations, but they will not rule over you. God said he will open up his good store house, the heavens, to give us rain to our land in its season, and to bless the works our hands, and you SHALL LEND TO MANY NATIONS BUT YOU SHALL NOT BORROW! 

Now tell me, how are we going to be lenders, if we are borrowing other people’s money?

We have disqualified ourselves from this scripture when we borrow money because God’s tells his people that they will lend and not borrow, this is our covenant right with God. Every time we get ourselves into debt we forfeit this covenant.

In fact Proverbs 22:7 tells us,

Proverbs 22:7
The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower becomes the lender’s slave.

bank-2907728_1920

Anytime you take on a loan, borrow money from someone or make a vow to someone to give them something, whether you’ve signed your name on the dotted line by saying you are going to pay this money back or you’ve entered into an oath or agreement or a pledge with your mouth, you have now become that person or institute slave!

They now rule over you, from this scripture they are the ones that are rich, now you are the one who is poor because you did not have the cash in your hand or in your bank account to pay for the items you wanted at the time the full amount of payment was needed.

The Bible has a lot to say about a person who borrows money from others and do not pay it back, the Bible cause that person wicked!

Psalm 37:21
The wicked borrows and does not pay back, but the righteous is gracious and gives.

But in that same verse, it talks about the righteous is gracious and gives. Righteous people are principle people, they are courteous and kind. They desire to help others. They think about how their actions effect others and their family. Righteous people do things the way the Bible instructs them to. They count up the cost before entering into covenants. They are people of integrity. They rather not live above their means. They give because they have enough to give without robbing peter to pay Paul. (This is my take on it.)

Exodus 22:14
If a man borrows anything from his neighbor, and it is injured or dies while its owner is not with it, he shall make full restitution.

We live in a time where people words have lost it’s power, now you have to get things in writing. Years ago you can do a handshake and believe what the other person tells you when you loan them money, clothing and your car etc. As believers, the Bible tells us if we borrow anything from anyone, and it gets damaged, lost or stolen, we are to make full restitution of what we borrowed. If we do not make good on the word or our vow, we are considered wicked!

Lets look at what the scripture say in the Bible about making an oath, pledge or a vow.

Proverbs 17:18 ESV One who lacks sense gives a pledge and puts up security in the presence of his neighbor

Proverbs 17:18 ISV A man who lacks sense cosigns a loan, becoming a guarantor for his neighbor.

When we co-sign for other people to enter into debt, the Bible says we lack sense! That person is not credit worthy or they could have gotten the loan themselves. If they do not pay their debt, that debt now becomes yours because you’ve made a vow to the lenders stating, “I will pay off their car, house or item if they don’t honor their vow with you.”

What is a Pledge?

1. a formal or solemn promise or agreement, esp to do or refrain from doing something.

2. collateral for the payment of a debt or the performance of an obligation the condition of being collateral (esp in the phrase in pledge).

3. a sign, token, or indication: the gift is a pledge of their sincerity.

pinky-swear-329329_1920

This is the only thing from scripture that a follower of Christ is suppose to owe a person.

Romans 13:8
Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

Let us read the scriptures about borrowing money

Psalm 37:21
The wicked borrows and does not pay back, but the righteous is gracious and gives.

2 Kings 4:7
Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, “Go, sell the oil and pay your debt, and you and your sons can live on the rest.”

The world sends us messages, mail and even encourages us to get into debt. They make it so easy for us we to qualify for a loan to purchase the things that we want. They don’t care about your previous history of filing for chapter 13 and your poor credit history. They have created programs designed just for people with a bad money history.

Colossians 2:8 ESV See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

God is telling us follow his ways and not the ways of the world!

Matthew 5:33 ESV “Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.’ But I say to you, Do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.

James 5:12 ESV But above all, my brothers, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath, but let your “yes” be yes and your “no” be no, so that you may not fall under condemnation.

Lets sum it all up. From these scriptures the Bible says do not make an oath, vow or pledge. When you do, it is not of God or comes from God. It is not wise. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. Anything other than your yes or no, comes from the evil one. If you have the money in your hand or bank account give it or buy it. If you don’t, do not entrap or enslave yourself by making vows, oaths or pledges. If you owe anyone or made a pledge pay your vow, or you would be considered wicked!

THE POWER OF LETTING GO! A key element in manifesting anything in your life.

stock-photo-transportation-people-colours-lagos-nigeria- (2)

I am reminded of a time when I so badly wanted to visit the beautiful continent of Africa.

Africa is where my husband is from. Africa is where my ancestors are from. It seemed like everything was coming up to stop me from making this dream a reality.

Here are a list of things that came up:

My husband and I had other obligations and things that needed our financial attention. If he traveled, then I needed to stay home to take care of our business that he ran. I was either pregnant and couldn’t travel or I had just given birth to a baby. We also had another business that I ran that required me to be hands on, if I didn’t work it, the monies stop flowing. It seemed like circumstances was not lining up for me.

I even accused my hubby for not wanting to take me to the place he grew up.

But the truth is, my husband wanted everything to be comfortable for me when we arrived in his hometown. He wanted my first time visiting the place he grew up to be an amazing experience.

I assured him that I can handle anything. I am a girl who has been through something. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. It didn’t matter where I stayed, I wanted to see where my ancestors were from. I could feel Africa in my bones.

mother-2262750_1920

It seemed like this dream of going to Africa was taking forever. I would have words back and forth with my husband about it, I made it a real issue. My husband assured me that we will go Africa and all I needed to do was trust and be patient. But my patience was running out.

So one day, I decided to let go of the anxiousness of going to Africa. I truly let it go in my heart. I decided to be content with it, and not let it ever be an issue between my Husband and I.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6)

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” – Hebrews 13:5


  •  THE MOMENT I LET IT GO, I KNEW IN MY SPIRIT THAT GOD WOULD LINE UP EVERY CIRCUMSTANCES FOR ME TO GO TO AFRICA!
  • Yes It happened, and it happened so fast! My time had come! The opportunity to visit Africa finally presented itself to me.
  1. I didn’t own my business anymore, we didn’t have any major financial obligation. I wasn’t pregnant. I wasn’t breastfeeding my son anymore. My babies were at the age that they could have a babysitter without me being in town. All of my circumstances were lining up for me.
  • But now all of a sudden, I had some resistance towards going to Africa. I remember saying to God, “you are going to make me go aren’t you?” At that time, I was not willing to part from my babies for that long period of time. I even told my husband, “you go without me, I don’t want to go.” I truly struggled! The only people I could trust to watch after my kids could not watch my children while I was in Africa.
  • Now here I was telling God and my husband that the timing wasn’t right. I asked God, “who is going to watch my babies while I’m in Africa and who could I trust? The only people I could trust with my kids for that long period of time were my parents and my oldest daughter. My daughter had to work and my parents were traveling on the same dates I would be traveling to Africa.

faith-612460_1920But God! He is faithful.

One day, while talking to a friend and telling her that I have an opportunity to go to Africa but needed someone who I could trust to watch my children before I could even entertain the offer, she told me that she also had an opportunity to take a trip out of the country and needed a babysitter to watch her child. She asked me if we could exchange babysitting services.

When I tell you that everything lined up for me, I mean everything. Oh my God! God supernatural assigned his angelic host to escort me to Africa. On top of that, God blessed me with a mini vacation! I had time alone, away from the kids while I traveled to retrieve my passport and my Nigerian visa.

Listen to all I had to go through to get to Africa. God provided for me supernaturally every step of the way! He assigned people who showed me favor to get me to Africa. I could feel the prayers of my husband and the intercessory prayer warriors in Africa, praying for my journey to Africa!

I needed to update my passport, and at the time I would be traveling to Africa, my passport would not be ready if I sent it through the mail. So I had to travel to Chicago because they give out passports on the spot. Yes! Mission accomplished, I received my passport!

But I needed a Nigerian visa to visit Nigeria, and now I had to travel to Atlanta to get a Nigerian visa. So I traveled to Atlanta, but when I arrived they told me that they didn’t not have anymore visas and I needed to go to New York if I wanted a Nigerian visa. They also told me that it was a holiday for them, and they were taking off and all of the Nigerian Embassy would be closed and I only had that day and the next day to make that happened, I didn’t know what to do! I said what! You guys are suppose to keep Visas in stocked, that is why you guys are an Embassy.

I didn’t want to travel to New York, and I felt like I did all this traveling for nothing! The Embassy in Atlanta told me all the information they could tell me and I was left to figure the rest out on my own. I heard a lady say I could over night the forms and fees if I can get some one in their processing center who would receive it and process my forms. That was my only hope! I told myself if only I could talk to someone at the New York Embassy. I attempted to call and could not get anyone but a recorder.

african-2197414_1920.jpg

I was frustrated and was about to give up but I heard in my spirit, “call again,” and I pushed a different button. I got a lady who works in the processing center. She gave me so much favor. She told me what to do and gave me the number to her direct line. My husband and I worked hard to get everything we needed to process this Visa. We paid all of the fees and filled out all of the forms and sent it overnight. I did all of this while I was still in Atlanta and my husband was at home in St. Louis. The next day, I had my Nigerian visa in my hand! I traveled by bus, airplane, car and train to retrieve my passport and visa. On my way home from Atlanta, God had me to minister to someone who had just gotten out of prison and blessed him with a book that I hoped changed his life.

I love my husband even the more after visiting his beautiful family. I was forever changed after visiting Africa. God used my niece in-law and sister in-law Adeline and Pastor Enohor to bring me to Africa. My niece in-law Adeline, asked Pastor Enohor and I to speak at her workshop Girl Arize.  We formed a bond that day, and Pastor Enohor asked my husband and me to speak at a big conference she holds in Africa every year based on a book she wrote called End of Discussion.

I was on a divine assignment from God, I was able to minister to the people in Africa. God had me to deliver a special word to the people in Africa. I am so every grateful to God, my husband, my babysitter, my niece and sister in-law and all of the people God used to make my dream a reality.

I had the most amazing time while I was in Africa. I received the royal treatment while I was there. My people loved on me! I felt like I was home! Every thing I dreamed Africa would be superseded my expectation. I was in awww the whole time I was there. My bones oozed with excitement and my face never lost it smiled.

Africa was beautiful. Looking at the people as they hustle and bustle was beautiful. Shack houses, huts and big beautiful homes and building were beautiful. Watching thousand upon thousands of people working for themselves to feed their families both kids and adults was beautiful. Watching the traffic and crowded  buses, motorcycles and scooters rides was beautiful.

Life for some people in Africa maybe hard but Africa is rich in resources. Everything may not be idea living for some Africans and the struggle definitely real. I am not down playing that, but I chose to focus on the beauty of Africa instead of the negative stigmas.

Trust God, and then let go if you are feeling stressed out, overwhelmed or anxious that it is taking to long for your dreams or prayers to manifest.

Letting go is not giving up the dream. Letting go is allowing, allowing God to be God and you to be content in your current circumstances. God will work out all of the details for you. He is working everything out for your good.

Every step of the way was a divine connection for me. God lined up things at the right time because I chose to let it go.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose. – Romans 8:28

And our great big God would do the same thing for you, if you just trust him!

10 Ways You Can Create A Simple and Luxurious Life!

Today I feel led to share with you a chapter out of a book that I’ve written called, “25 Attitude You Must Have for a Breakthrough” and since I am on a 30 days journey to getting my life in order, I thought it would be perfect to share my process with you and this chapter breaks it down perfectly.

badesalz-1620261_1920Simple and luxurious living is surrounding yourself with only those things that you love and are beautiful to your eyesight. It is also about getting rid of anything that is taking up space in your life with no real purpose. Simple and luxurious living also entails that you only put the things in your environment that you absolutely need and actually use. This eliminates waste in your life and help you to live free of unnecessary clutter.

We hold on to things far too long, even if it is not serving any real purpose in our lives. I want to inspire you to detox your mind, your environment, your relationships, your finances, and your body so you can feel the freedom that comes with releasing dead weight and having an organized stress-free life.

In my own life, I am constantly purging things that no longer benefit me, my family and our environment.

Things like wrong mindset, schedules that do not work for my family, clothes, accessories, wrong eating habits, relationships that are no longer beneficial to my values. Things that are broken that I will never have fixed, things that I am no longer using, places I use to frequent, but in my spirit, feels like the season is up for that. It’s all about simplifying to make your life easier, beautiful, and free!clutter-560701_1920.jpgSometimes having a cluttered environment stunts our growth, cloud our mind and vision. I am learning this. I am also a mother of five, wife, author, blogger and coach. I realize I need to be organized and everything should have a place. I also came to the conclusion that if we are having things in our environment that we don’t love or use, it is robbing us of more space, and to me, holding on to things that no longer serve you purpose, is an indicator you might be holding on to mental and emotional clutter.

Having a cluttered environment and living with too much stuff can cause you to lose quality time with your family and working on things that will enhance your purpose/dream. Because you are too consumed with the upkeep of it all.

Another thing, your best clarity comes in a neat organized environment. I have experienced this in my own life, when I let go of old baggage and decluttered watch out something significant is going to show up in my life.

You can’t go into the next season with things, people, and wrongs mindsets. That will hold you back! That is extra baggage; it will sink your ship. In this next season, you have to sail through!pexels-photo-90319Now, simplifying doesn’t mean things do not have to be beautiful. I encourage beautiful and luxurious. As long as it has a place and value in your life, allow it to be part of your life. We are talking about your own style, do it your way! Put things in your environments that is beautiful and luxurious to you.

Luxurious, doesn’t have to mean the same thing to everyone. I might love vintage and industrial, another person might love modern and retro. Put your own twist on your own style; just make sure you love it! When you have a clean, neat, organized, and positive environment, seeing it alone put you in a peaceful, prosperous, happy, stress-free state of mind.

That is the kind of mind that helps bring clarity in your situations and make your dreams become a reality.

10 Ways To Create A Simple and Luxurious Life:

1. All broken items must be removed immediately or fixed right away.

2. You must absolutely love the items in your environment. Not like, but LOVE!

3. If you no longer have use for an item, or if you have too many of the same items, bless someone else with the item who could use it, or donate it.office-1078869_1920.jpg4. Put like items, with like items, and assign everything a home. For example, put all scissors together in a container, get a container box for all of your pencils, mount a key holder on the wall and place all of your keys on the key holder.

5. Remove all items that are torn, ripped, faded, waggly, too small, and missing buttons out of your environment. If you really love the item, get it repaired immediately.

6. This is just a suggestion, not a rule. When you put items that match, like all matching dishes, towels and silverware, it makes your space look refined and stream-lined and gives a luxurious feel. I am still working on this one myself.

7. If there are any relationships that you are in that are influencing you in a wrong way, that are draining you, negative, one sided; where you are the giver and they are the takers, non-committal, intimidating, manipulative, non-supportive, abusive, toxic, controlling, and codependent. You need to set boundaries in that relationship, redefine your relationships, or cut the soul tides in that relationship all together.pexels-photo-262145.jpegSome people are afraid to be alone, so they tolerate behavior from people that do not mean them any good. When you trust God, and let go of toxic relationships, he bring new and wonderful people into your life that will add to your life and not take away. Your heart is your lifeline, the Bible says out of it flows the issue of life. What issues have you been letting fill your heart. You don’t want to be so loved starved that you just leave heart dangling for anyone to have it. Take your heart back from those who don’t deserve it! And give it to the one who can take care of it best, God. Start loving yourself enough to disconnect from people, things, and decisions that is stopping you from having God’s best for your life.

8. I like to weigh anything against the word of God. God’s word is always true and any wrong mindset that you have concerning an issue, must be destroyed in you. You must let go of that stinking thinking that wants to keep you bound. For example, having unforgiveness in your heart towards another person. God’s word says we should forgive others, if we want God to forgive us. Then we have to forgive the person we are holding unforgiveness against.

You have to detox your mindset from negative and wrong thinking. Sometimes, we could have grown up with truths that are not the truth. Once you find out the truth, you have to let the old truth go, and get rid of it. Because it can hinder you from receiving major breakthroughs in your life.

I have an exercise for you to do. I want you to think about some truths you grew up with and some negative things you believe about yourself, about life and other people. I want you to write them down on paper. I would love for you to weigh it against the word of God (which is the Bible). You can go on the internet and type in the subject in question. Type in the search engine; “what does the Bible teaches about, for example; forgiveness.” Write out your new truth and decide to let it be the ruling truth in your life.wallet-908569_1920.jpg9. We must base our self-esteem on the word of God and not in our material possessions. If you have debt that you owe, the Bible says that we are slaves to our lenders, luxurious simplicity requires you to pay those that you owe, so you can live a luxurious lifestyle. And I am only speaking to the ladies with who are living with real debt. We have no business buying anything that is not a need, until we get out of debt. I suggest you put a stop to unnecessary spending until you have paid off those who have control over you. I recommend you take it a step further, save for a rainy day, and think about your future. Learn about investing some of your money.

Put yourself in the budget, pay yourself some me money. So you will not feel like you are only working to pay bills. Part of you paring down your items is so that you govern and take care of what is in your environment, so you can live with quality and not quantity and having to keep buying the same things over and over again. You can even make extra cash off your stuff, if it is worth something. Set up an Ebay account and start selling your treasures on Ebay. They have a global customer base, and you will be surprise who wants to buy your stuff.

Another place to sell your items to make extra cash is Craigslist. Craigslist is design to sell in your local community and state that you live in. People are buying and selling on craigslist all day long, and it is free to sell and buy things. I would suggest you read the safety policies before meeting with someone on Craigslist.

Never go anywhere alone to exchange items for cash. Always take someone with you.

We spend too much money into our self-worth and not into things that really matters, like our future. I know that you do not want to still be working for someone else at the age of 65. You do not have to retire, but if you are going to be working, let it be for yourself and because you love helping others with a service you provide. Now, when you have taken care of your foundation and built your financial house, splurge!pexels-photo-110215.jpeg10. Part of living a luxurious simplicity life is taking care of your temple, your body, so you can live to enjoy all of the blessing that will unfold in your life when you on purpose decide you want to change!

Toxic, harmful things in your body and your environment like strong harsh chemicals foul foolish talk, cursing, gossip, negative self-talk, drugs, alcohol, nicotine, too much sugar, salt, soda and caffeine. I want to inspire you to change the way you look at your life. You only have one life; you must love yourself enough to take care of you. You are the only one who can decide what is good for you.

I suggest you start taking walks, about 15 minutes to one hour walks a day. It has major health benefits like relieving stress, building muscle tone, stretching your muscle and joints and keep them from getting stiff. Walking also helps you to keep your weight down and releases endorphins in your body to give you a feel good feeling. A big benefit in walking is that it keeps depression at bay, if you are a person that struggle with depression.

Drink lots of water and eat nutritious food. Monitor what you allow to enter into your environment and your mind, like negative words and gossiping. Declare your body and environment a gossip free zone. Get in the habit of looking at yourself in the mirror and speaking right and excellent words to yourself and over yourself. Bless others presence by speaking nothing but encouraging and positive words to them.
mineral-water-1532300_1920-2
Practicing fasting because it has great health benefits and can heal the body and deliver you from strange and strong addictions. Jesus made it a habit to fast while living on earth. Fasting also bring clarity and answers when you need help with a situation in your life. Holding on to unnecessary clutter in the mind as well as in your environment just take up wasted space and time.
You could be spending time on things that really matters like building your dream or formulating a plan for your purpose. Decluttering help, you get organized and letting go of mental clutter helps you to focus!
 The Bible talks about the correct way to fast. It is found in Isaiah 58.

I personally was delivered from a spirit of miscarriage while on a 40 day fast. On that fast, I gave up eating meats and changed the way I was speaking over myself. I began to confess healing scriptures over my body. You can read about my whole testimony in a book I wrote Dare to Dream Big!. You can purchase the book on amazon.com or on my website at http://www.noboundariesbtc.com.

I know it’s a lot but it is so worth the time and effort to live your life on purpose and enjoy a life full of breakthrough peace, luxury, and abundance.

Getting Back to the Heart of Things!

bench-1245994_1920

This blog post is about my journey back to being grateful and taking control of my life. I was feeling like I needed to bring more balance and order in my life.

I am a Christian, wife, mother and I took on the task of being responsible for my kids education. Yes, I also homeschool my kids.

I am a woman who have dreams and a purpose and I started to pursue them as well. I am a self published Christian author. I’ve written 3 books,“Dare To Dream Big”, “25 Attitude “You Must Have for a Breakthrough” and “Extraordinary Single Lady”.

I am a certified Christian life coach, speaker and blogger. I have a lot on my plate, but I love it. I love that I have found out what God created me to do and that is to partner with him to see his daughters made whole in every area of their lives. But I have an evening greater calling, and that is to be a wife to Overere and a mom to Erica, Faith, Victoria, Blessing and Wisdom. I am also called to be Destine’s GeeGee. I am not ready to be called a grandmother yet, so I told my granddaughter to call me GeeGee.

In life, there will be a lot of things pulling for your time and attention but you have to know what is the most important in your life. For me, God is most important, then myself and then my family in that order and then everything else comes after that.

herbal-tea-647535_1920

Myself after God because I am no good to anyone if I do not take care of myself first. I need to always be giving back to me, so I can give back to others that have been entrusted to me.

Some of my favorite me times and things I enjoy giving back to myself are, Lipton Green tea with honey or guava, reading and learning, spa treatment in the bath tub, spending fun quality time with my husband like going out to dinner and catching a great movie afterwards, traveling, praying and meditating, journaling, 30 minutes walks which I need to get back to, getting my hair done when its time, polishing my nails and toes, buying something for myself, having sweet fellowship and feeding my spirit man at Church and having social time with the ladies.

As women we want to be a part of everything and attend everyones gathering. But you have to decide what is truly important for you.

You must develop a relationship with the Holy Spirit so He can prompt you when you are taking on too many things in your life or when you are suppose to do something different than what you or other people think you are suppose to be doing.

diary-1149992_1280.jpg

Everyone has an agenda, but it is God’s agenda that should reign supreme in your life. But let me reveal this revelation. God has given us the ability to make wise decisions for ourselves. God requires us to follow after Jesus example on how we should conduct our lives. Jesus is the standard for us to pattern our life after, it is the blue print on how we are suppose to conduct ourselves with our family, friends, on our jobs and in the world. That is  one of the requirements to live a Christ centered life.

He has given you the free will to choose how you want your life to be. He will present things before you, but ultimately you must decide on what job to take, who to marry, where you want to live, which gifting and talents you want to develop, what type of car you want to drive, what kinds of attributes you want to display in the world, what house you want to live in and how you want to spend your days on earth.

The Bible is the road map for the best possible outcome to based your decisions on. The Bible is the true word of God, it is not to be taken lightly. It is prophecy in a book. It is God’s word to man, but God gave you free will, He left it up to you to do the choosing. The Holy Spirit is God’s helper, He will illuminate to you which way you should go if you develop a intimate trusting relationship with him. The Holy Spirit will speak to your heart and prompt you when it is something you should do or not be doing at this time if your life. Most Christians have not develop that relationship with the Holy Spirit. If you are born again, I would recommend you read this book by Benny Hinn called “Good Morning Holy Spirit” if you want to be born again pray this prayer.

cleaning-268126_1920

Ladies, I know we want to have our cake and eat it too, but there is a price that comes with that. It takes careful thought and planning and great organization skills of which I am learning to develop everyday. I know everything is not going to be perfect, but perfect to me is having a peace of mind and living true within my heart, and being the change that I want to see and that starts with me.

All I was hearing in my spirit was get your house in order and that could mean different things for different people because we are all called to something different in life. Your struggle my be totally different from my struggles.

I was presented with an offer, that I might add, I asked God for, but after the offer was presented to me, all I heard was get your house order and organize in every are of your life. I heard 30 days.

I began working on it right way. The 1st thing I did, was write out a plan on how I was going to tackle all of my task that was set before. Before I can take on another obligation, I must do this 1st. Get my house in order.

dresses-53319_1280

I wrote a plan for decluttering every area in my home and this was not a surface plan. It was very detailed. I was not going to leave not one stone unturned. Sometimes we tackle the surface clutter that we see and neglect the clutter we can not see.

All of the hidden clutter I had to tackle was underneath the cabinets, inside the closets, inside the drawers, I no longer have a junk drawer because I assigned everything a place. Everything I had no use for, I donated it or I threw it away.

I tackled every room in my house and as I was cleaning and decluttering, I was making a list of all the things that needed fixed or mending.

I heard in my spirit, get a system for how you would keep it clean, and  do it the same way every time. I created me a system for every room and I created me an inventory list after every system of things that needed to be purchased for the upkeep of that particular room.

Sometimes our breakthroughs are attached to the things we are willing to give up. Sometimes our prosperity is attached to the things we are willing to implement and do. Sometimes clutter is an indicator of the things we are still holding on to, and sometimes God is just trying to make sure we lay a proper foundation before we build our house so it is not built upon a faulty foundation.

washing-machine-902359_1920

Today it has been a week since my purging and decluttering and I have 2 more rooms to tackle. I will complete them today. The laundry room and the basement.

While I was cleaning, I was thanking God for all of the blessings that are in my life. As I cleaned and decluttered each room, I realize how abundantly blessed I am.

I have clean running water, a warm bed to lay my head down on, heat on those cold nights, cover to keep warm, food in the refrigerator, an amazing husband that affords me the luxury of being a stay at home mom to our children, a home that is paid off, cars that are paid off and a whole host of other blessings.

As I have been extremely grateful, I have being noticing things showing up in my life, big blessing that reminds me of what God said in Matthew 6:25-34 KJV:

Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

yellow-845783_1920.jpg

And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:” “And yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” 

“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?” “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?” “(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.” “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”

I believe I am doing what I am suppose to be doing right now, It feels so in alignment. All I know is God is up to something good and I am excited to see what that is and I will keep you posted. But until then, what is God putting on your heart in this season of your life. Please do not say I don’t know. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you and began implementing it right away.

2 Ways To Eliminate Being Overwhelmed!

people-1492052_1920-2

Are you struggling with getting things done? Are you finding yourself getting behind on your daily task? Do you feel overwhelm with all the things you have going on in your life.

I want to encourage you and give you some tips on how you can conquer your day and feel super successful.

I talk a lot about people pleasing, I believe when you are not being honest with what you can honestly handle, taking on extra responsibility, and attending events you really know you shouldn’t attend, you are in people pleasing mold.

Before you can actually feel super successful, you need to sit down and get really clear about what is important you, what are you suppose to be doing at this season in your life and what is causing you to feel so overwhelmed.

day-planner-828611_1920Then, you are going to create you a strict schedule that will take the pressure off of you feeling so overwhelmed.

You are going to feel guilty about this at first, because you are used to being there for everybody else and you will feel guilty because you are going to have to tell people no.

Some people might be upset with you, and even might get offended with you, but you are going to have to be ok with that because you are now putting your health first. Feeling overwhelmed and stressed out is never good for your body or your mind. Our bodies have a way of sending us signals when we are pushing it to much.

When you are feeling anxiety in your heart, a headache because you are stressed and overwhelmed these are signals that is telling you that something needs to change in your life.

So how do you change it?

woman-391555_1920.jpg1. Disconnect From Time Wasters

Time wasters are things, people, busyness that have nothing to do with where you are trying to go in your life. It will always delay your progress from getting things done in your life.

You should have time for just relaxing, but what I am talking about here, is people who are living their life in the blind. They have no real pursuit or no real goals, neither are they focused with getting things done in their own life.

Time wasters can also be distractions. A distraction is a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else. Extreme agitation of the mind or emotion.

The scripture that comes to my mind when I think of time wasters and distractions is from 1 Peter 5:8Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up.

phone-1889405_1920

Just when you have decided to live the life of your dreams or live in your purpose the enemy will try to catch you off guard to delay your progress. You must recognize the time wasters in your life. It is a set up by the enemy, he wants to catch you napping.

Time wasters come in the form of a phone call from a friend who is just calling to see how you are doing. However, they are actually trying to find out what you are doing and because they have gotten off focus, the enemy is using them to get you off focus by having you to believe that they have an urgent matter to talk about.

TV is a big time waster. Billions of people are wasting their time looking at TV while others are living their dreams, when they should be pursuing their own dreams.

Computer gadgets are another times waster, If you have to be on-line for anything, give yourself a time to get on there and a time to get off. Schedule it in your day and stick to your schedule.

pexels-photo-58457

2. Schedule your day for success!

Let your time be accounted for! Every second, every minute, and every hour. Plan your day! A failure to plan can result in an ineffective day. But allow for flexibility for the suddenly. Please do not get bent out of shape if you have to detour from your list.

Make sure you get at least 3-5 things done on your list. Let them be absolute things, that absolutely must be done for that day and before you know it, your list will be completed.

Planning your day is also another way to keep time wasters out of your life and make what’s really important a top priority. Scheduling your day will ensure that you are bringing a balance in your life and making time for your important relationships, like time with the Lord, time taking care of yourself, time spent with your spouse, time spent with the kids and attention to your purpose and business.

budget

Here is a bonus! You can even schedule your bills for automation. That way you will never have to forget to pay another bill again resulting in more cash flow for you because you have eliminated late fees that was eating into my profit. When I started to automate my bills, it took the stress out of bill paying. I felt like life was very good. It shifted my focus to dreading to pay bills to loving to pay bills on time, which have resulted in a debt free lifestyle!

Sometimes we are looking at the big picture and wondering to ourselves how are we going to get everything done.

Well here is a sure strategy that will eliminate feelings of guilt, feelings of inadequacies, and failure. There is something about following a schedule that makes you feel super successful and secure. Statistics shows that even when you follow a schedule with your kids they feel more secure. Maybe it’s because you have set your intentions to make sure everything and everyone in your life is taken care of including yourself, and now you are giving out of the overflow of an already filled up tank.

It is not by accident that you clicked on “Breakthrough Blog 4 Women.” I believe our paths was meant to cross.

I want to share with you 5 spiritual laws that is going to make a big difference in your life if you implement them.

These principles can set you free from those who you have been allowing to control your life, they can set you free from yourself, and they can set you free from your past and show you how go into your future with a new mindset.

If you implement this first principle alone you will sleep like a baby tonight.

Principle #1 The Law of Forgiveness

The Law of Forgiveness states, “in order for God to forgive you, you have to for give others.” Mark 11:25 ESV

In order for things to change in your life, you have to forgive anyone who has ever hurt you, violated you and offended you. You have to forgive yourself for not always making the best choices for your life. You have to forgive God for any unanswered prayers, any disappointment you may be feeling and for not protecting you from someone who violated you.

When our life has not worked out the way we think it should have, we play the blame game and hold unforgiveness in our heart towards the people or things that violated us.

All of those negative emotions that you are feeling inside your heart, the pain that you are feeling and even some sickness, has a lot to do with you not forgiving.

When you forgive someone, you are doing it for your sake so you can be free. We think if we do not hold people hostage, we are letting them off the hook and saying it is ok what you’ve done to me.

No, it is never ok for someone to violate you, but your refusal to forgive them is keeping you unhappy and bitter. Some of the addictions that you have is because you use it to cover the pain of what was done to you. You have to release it, so your life can prosper and you can find peace. Allow God to fight on your behalf.

Romans 12:19 ESV Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

You have to forgive yourself, you are worthy to be forgiven. Sometimes we have a hard time forgiving others because we hold ourselves at such a high standard. We need to learn to give forgiveness to ourselves. So what, you made a bad choice, just ask for forgiveness and move on. Tell yourself, ” I forgive you for not being perfect.” You deserve mercy and you deserve grace, please give it to yourself.

female-young-woman-beautiful-48196

Principle #2 The Law of Thinking

The Law of thinking states that, “whatever you hold in your in mind, in a habitual way, becomes your reality in time.”

If you can control your thoughts, you can control your life! You have to master your thought life.

Research shows that the human mind has more than 50,000 to 70,000 thoughts a day. Others too believe that 70% to 80% of the human thoughts are negative.

You can always tell what a person is really thinking, just listen to his or her conversations. I recommend you buy the book by James Allen “As a Man Thinketh” it will change your life.

For example, someone hurt you and you make up in your mind that you are going to forgive them. It takes faith to forgive, but the thoughts of them hurting you keep playing over and over in our mind. How do you think you are going to react to that person when you see them again if you do not cast down those thoughts? Probably not so good, because you have played it over and over in our mind how they hurt you.

You must capture every thought before it lodges in your mind and takes residence. One of the ways I control my thoughts is by stopping it before it enters. This can be very tricky at first because you are used to allowing anything in your thoughts. This will require lots of effort on your part. You can not be lazy. You have to really focus.

It is like playing a game, your job is to not let the thoughts enter at all, and the thoughts entering wants to catch you off guard, so it can set up camp by taking over your thoughts and feeding your mind with lies, fear, and unforgiveness. What you think about and meditate on, you will eventually act out.

If you can train your thoughts and block the negative chatter before it enters, and replace it with a positive thought, you can change your life, to one of peace, happiness and abundance.

This is what I do when a negative thought tries to enter my mind, as soon as I recognize it is as a negative thought, I cast that thought down and then I replace it with what I want to see happen.

Make sure your thoughts are lining up with only what you want to see come into your life because it will take you places only you can dream of, and that goes for thoughts of negativity or positivity.

marketing-man-person-communication.jpg

Principle #3 The Law of Your Confession

The Law of confession states that, “Life and death are in the power of your tongue and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21

I want you to really get this principle. Words carry energy,  before you release them out of your mouth, make sure you think about what kinds of results you want them to bring to you.

Your words alone can change your life. If you have never paid attention to your words and the things that are coming out of your mouth, today is the day you will become aware of how your words have impacted your life!

Your words and your thoughts are in direct correlation to each other, that is way you have to gain control of your thoughts because it come out in your words. But you can have a wrong thought and reject it by the power of your words.

For example, you have a thought to come across your mind, I am not smart enough to past this test. Use the power of your words to speak to your thought and make it obey what you want it to do. Do not allow that thought to be spoken out of your mouth. Speak opposite of what that thought want you to do or say, and say it over and over again. Say out of your mouth, I am going to pass this test. Never speak of what you don’t want to show up in your life.

Proverbs 18-21 says that with the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach will be satisfied; He will be satisfied with the product of his lips. 

Speaking only of what you love will combat all negativity. Take a moment to pay attention to what keeps showing up in your life that you are not happy with. Could it be because you are using your mouth to tear it down by speaking of what you don’t want to show up? But remember, the only way you can change your words is to change what you are thinking about.

confession

Principle #4 The Law of Belief

The Law of Belief states that, “you get out of your life what you truly believe you can receive.” Rather you believe you can have something or not, you are working the law of belief.

Mark 11:24 ESV Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

You have to believe in yourself and you have to believe in the words that your are speaking over yourself because it does not matter what they say, it only matters what you say and what you think about yourself.

No one has the power to stop you from becoming great only you have the power to stop yourself from becoming great or achieving anything in your life. But you have got to believe in yourself so much that you believe in your own hype.

How was I able to change the negative inner dialogue that I was having with myself? By taking on the words that God said about me first, and then getting in front of the mirror and changing the negative inner dialogue that I was having with myself.

At first this is going to seem silly, but you have to become obsessed with it until you believe it, and then your action is going to line up with what you think about yourself.

There will be negative chatter all around you, trying to make you feel like you don’t belong. We live in a culture where others want you to feel inferior to them. You have no one to be afraid of. Hold your head up high you are royalty, it came with you when you were born. You were never meant to blend in with the crowd you was always created to shine and sparkle. You were never created like anyone else, so why are you trying to be just like everybody else?

You have your own uniqueness, talents, gifting and skills. You have your own finger print. That is an indicator that you were not suppose to be like others. There is something so special about what you were so uniquely designed to do, that even if you had the same talent as someone else, you would put your own spin on it.

Your looks, your race and your genes were created just for you. You are a gift to this world. but if you don’t embrace who are and be proud of where you come from, we are never going experience your brilliance because you don;t think you have what it takes. So celebrate being different and stand out and shine!

pexels-photo-128899.jpegPrinciple # 5 The Law of Reciprocity  

The Law of Reciprocity states, “whenever you say anything that causes people to feel better about themselves, they have a deep unconscious need to reciprocate.”

Matthew 7:12 – Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

The reverse is also true in that, if you do something that hurts others, they will feel the need to hurt you back as well, so be careful how you treat others and how you talk to others.

You never know why a person is treating you the way they are treating you, it could be is because you have treated them certain way. You probably won’t get it back from the person you have treated bad or good, it probably would come back from someone total different.

Luke 6:31 – And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

We have a deep psychological need to be even with others. If a person does something for you, we feel a need to get even by doing something nice in return.

There comes a time in everyones life when you have to pay attention to what keep showing up in your life, I mean you really have to stop and look at the choices that you are making that is causing particular result in your life.

I don’t know if you know it or not, but you have the power to change the direction in which your life is headed. I am going to say this to you again. I don;t know if you know it or not but you have the power to change the direction in which your life is headed

So you be the first to put this law in order,

Mark 12:31 – And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Have a grateful heart towards everyone you meet, and treat everyone with kindness and respect you never know who God will use to get you to the next level or to help you.

The Law of Reciprocity could be as simple as is you holding the door for someone, being kind and considerate, giving some one a worthy compliment, being respectful to authority, respecting the rights of others, helping someone out by lending a helping hand, talking to others with respect, making sure you are operating out of positivity and always coming from a good place.

You Are Different, Love Who you are!

Looking back over my life, I am reminded of the many blessing that have been bestowed upon me. Taking mental note of the time I visited the rich continent of Africa and seeing all the beautiful people of color who look just like me, I felt like I was at home.

Remembering the smile that never left my face as I gazed at the thousands of people on the street hustling for their families and fighting for survival trying to get the next sell as women and children embrace the roadside selling roasted corn, peanuts, boiled eggs, coconut shavings, grilled meat and drinks.

I saw my sisters walking like stallions, so poised and statues. It was so natural and effortless for them to carry a whole tray of goods to sell on the top of their heads. I knew in that instant that these women were the real models of the world.

If you put African women on the runway it would be no problem for them to embrace and ace the runway with physique, poise, beauty, grace and charm as such as their own.

I was reminded in that instant that these are my people, I came from them, I felt so proud to have come from a lineage that is hardworking, industrious, strong, beautiful, innovative, rich with presence and culture.

I do not think you can truly know yourself until you have met the Heavenly Father and accept His son Jesus and if you do not know your history. God in his infinite wisdom assigned a plan for us and that included our race, our lineage, culture, purpose, gifting, skills, assignment and our faith. Every person on earth must embrace theses two truths.

Rather you are African American, African, Latino, Caucasian, Asian or Indian, you must seek revelation of who God ordained you to be when He put you on planet earth.

If we are going to survive on planet earth, the human race must co-exist together regardless of the idea that God had for us when we came to this planet.

It is not God’s design for one race to try and oppress another race, or to out do another culture. Competitiveness, oppression, rejection and mental enslavement is of the devil. There is nothing good about the oppression of anyone. Hierarchy is only justified when everyone is treated with fairness, love, dignity, respect and pride. There is no place for that kind of behavior in the Kingdom of God.

hawaiian-hula-dancers-aloha-stadium-dod-photo-by-usaf-tech-54093

But I am not only talking about injustice against race, but injustice in all forms. Injustice can be in our own culture, in our own families, in our congregations, on our jobs, it can be injustice against the elderly, injustice against the poor, injustice and oppression of women. I love what the book of James has to say about this subject.

James 2:1-8 My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called?

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well.

James 3:13-18 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him show out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

hands-1939895_1920.png

What is so sad to me is that, we do not know our culture and where we come from. We are ashamed of our history, we are ashamed of our culture. We do not know our lineage. It is true that our culture has been stripped from us and some of us never heard of our true origin, but that is not an excuse anymore, we need to find out our rich heritage by opening up books and reading and researching on the internet. We need to get back to loving our true identities. That goes for all culture!

Every person on earth comes from God and everything God created is beautiful. It is absurd to think God created one group of people better than the next group. We are all exceptional human beings, with intelligence and brilliance beyond our wildest imagination.

We were all designed to flourish on earth together, this is not an exclusive planet. We are not robots that were created to operate just alike. We were put here to embrace the beauty of everyone, to give each human being a chance to express the creativity of our maker. To celebrate our difference, to distinquish ourselves from each other, to stand out in the crowd, we were never meant to blend in with society.

tumblr_occckw2hsd1vovk39o1_500-2

My cultural clothes, my hair, my features, my physique, my lineage was never meant to bring me shame. But they were created to bring glory to me, and they were always meant for me to stand out from the rest and to shine.

My dark beautiful skin was alway meant for me to shine!

and you my beautiful Latino, Asian, Caucasian and Indian sisters were meant to shine as well. And this saying goes for all of us, when you reject my skin, my culture, my lineage you are rejecting yourself, when you look away when you see the color of my skin, you just confirm the lack of love you have for yourself, because God is love and we are all made in the images and likeness of God. We all came from God!

Lets heal by embracing each other differences. Lets support womanhood  because at the core of our being, we share the same commonalities, we are mothers, wives, women with dreams, women who wants the same equal opportunities, women who wants acceptance to just be ourselves to the core of our being, women who wants understanding and women who  wants a better life for our families.

I hope this blog post open your eyes to embracing who God created you be and except others for who God created them to be. Our world will be a better place for it.

She Still Got It! It Has Always Been There!

She is still in there, that same woman who use to laugh until she cried, shopped until she dropped and use to have a lot of fun during the things that brought her joy.

love-1194312_1920

Like, dancing and singing and visiting the local boutiques. Designing and decorating, and going to the coffee house and having a cup of coffee or tea. Spending all day at the bookstores and checking out the latest must reads, magazines and journals. Hanging out with her friends and catching up on the latest, whats going on in everyone’s life. Finding new recipes and trying them out and having potlucks so everyone can try each other dishes and just enjoying life! She is still there.

She just got buried, under all the responsibilities she had on her plate. She just got buried, with cares of her life. She just got buried, under the negative chatter that fed her thoughts with lies, telling her that she had lost it, her beauty, her charm, her charisma and the romance, connection, communication and the attention in her marriage.

She just got buried, under her superwoman exterior that she puts on everyday. She just got buried, under hormonal imbalance. She just got buried, under her emotional eating to numb the pain of her dreams laying dormant inside her, she just got buried, under going to the same unfulfilling job that she goes to everyday. She just got buried, under the same old routine that does not have spontaneity in it. She just got buried, under giving to everybody else and not giving back to herself.

pensive-female-580611_1920.jpg

She just got buried, with the grief of a loved one passing, she just got buried, under living with a sickness or disease in her body. She just got buried, under going through a divorce. She just got buried, under living with loneliness, envy, bitterness, unforgiveness and rejection.

She just got buried, under being a wife, mom, a daughter, a teacher, a caretaker, a boss, a sister, a friend, a leader and an influencer. She just got buried.

BUT SHE IS STILL IN THERE! 

She is still vibrant, and alive. She still have that twinkle in her step and a sparkle in her eyes. She is still just as attractive, sexy, alluring and confident as she was when she was in her 20s’ and 30s’. She still have that same laugh on the inside of her, that when she laughed so hard, her belly tighten and tears rolled down her face.

Give her a reason to have joy again. Give her permission to live again. Take your mind back from anyone and anything that is making you feel like you can’t breathe. Make yourself first priority! Invest in you again. Love on you again! Stop those sabotaging thoughts that you take on everyday and give them back to the devil! No more having self-pity and feeling sorry for yourself.

Girl, you have got to get up and live again. You stopped caring about what makes you truly happy! Pick back up those things that once brought you joy! Take care of yourself.

Start with a simply spa treatment, in your own bath tub. Buy you a big luxury bar of moisturizing body soap, and click this link to get a spa treatment formula.

Schedule your life and include you as top priority, right under spending time with God. Write out a list of all the things you love doing and include those things in your schedule. I hear you saying, I don’t have enough time to do that. That is why you are creating  a schedule for yourself, because you get to choose what you want to do and how you want your day to go.

Yes, schedule your responsibilities in your schedule as well, but if something comes up that conflicts with your me time, say no to it. In fact, I want you to cut the phone off when you are doing something for yourself. You are in an important meeting and will not be able to answer the phone. Let your family know that you have decided to start taking care of yourself properly and you would not be available to answer the phone until you are done with your appointment. They would love you more for taking care of yourself, because they will have a new happier healthy woman in their life.

In your time spent with God, pour your heart out to him, If you do not journal, now is a good time to start journaling because you are going to have different emotions that are going to be surfacing and you are going to need to talk to God about these different emotions and you are going to have to be honest with yourself.

writing-923882_1920.jpg

In prayer with God and writing in your journal is a good place to pour your heart out to him. You are getting clear about what is causing you discontentment. Admit it to God and yourself. Admit everything to him. Do not hold back. Sometimes we as women feel guilty that we are feeling a certain way about a situation and we never deal with what is causing us to feel this way because we think it is wrong to be having such strong emotions but God already knows how you feel, so do not try to hide it from him, and do not try to hide the emotions from yourself.

Another thing I would like for you to do is, after you have explored what is causing you stress, unhappiness, lost of joy, not feeling alive in your life and discontentment, I want you to answer these questions, what do I need to do to feel better about this situation? What do I really want? How do I really want to feel? When the answers come to you, work towards implementing the answers you receive right away!

I want you to start back reading books on the areas in your life that you want to improve in, for example, if you want to start back looking and dressing fashionable, go on Pinterest.com and look at pictures of fashion that ladies your age are wearing. You can go to your local book store and buy fashion magazines or go to the library and check out fashion book and magazines. You can also go on Youtube.com and type in the search button the topic your are interested in.

asian-1839798_1920.jpg

You can do this with any area of your life you want to improve in, I would advise you first go to the Bible and see what Gods word says about the subject and then look at other sources that is Biblically sound. You can do this to improve your communication, sex life, attractiveness and connection with your husband. You can read books about marriage, how to forgive, your appearance, how to put yourself first so you can be alive to take care of others around you, healthy eating and natural things you can do to cure certain diseases, pray and fasting, working out ect.

The goal here is for you to get your sparkle back and for you to truly feel alive in your life. I wrote a book that I know will truly motivate you and encourage you to find your sparkle and shine again! You will truly be encouraged to find your joy and truly live again! It is called “25 Attitudes You Must Have for a Breakthrough” it is only 14.97 and you can have access to it the moment you purchase it! It is a digital download. You can start right away feeling back in control of your life. That is less than 15.00 to change your life forever.

You Are Enough Just The Way You Are!

pexels-photo-60267.jpeg

We are now entering into a new year, many new goals and new year resolutions has been written on paper and voiced in the atmosphere. It’s only one day from the old calendar year, to entering into a new year, only 24 hours between the goals and new resolutions that you have set for yourself.

There is something freeing about a new year, even though it is just another day from the past year, in 24 hours our calendar date changes only one digit from the previous year.

We hit the reset button in our minds to start a fresh. We have something new to look forward to in the hopes of accomplishing a better life than the one we had lived a day before.

So what are we actually after? What do we really want at the core of our being? Why do we take the time to make new contracts with ourselves?

I believe what we really want is to feel fulfilled, successful, accomplished, happy, like our life have meaning, beautiful, significant, validated, rich, confident, secure, in control of our circumstances, loved, valuable, acknowledge and important.

graduation-819762_1920.jpg

What if I told you that you are already all of those things just the way you are. Who told you that you had to have all those things? Who told you that you are not good enough without them? Who brought discontentment into your life? Who sold you a bill of goods that if you are not accomplishing these thing then you do not measure up in the world’s society.

Who told you to compare yourself?  Who told you that you can not enjoy your life just being? Who told you that you had to be doing?

I want you to stop and breathe, release out a big sigh, embrace the space that you have been given right where are. Feel your presence, look at your body parts, you are alive! Now I want you to detach from all of the false expectation that was put on you from every environment that you came from.

You do not have to be anything because you are everything! You are the air that you breathe, you are the space that you fill up, you are immensely provide for, you were sent here with every provision to fulfill your destiny, you are light, you are salt, feel your own greatness. Embrace your own success, you are already successful, you are already beautiful, you are already enough, you are already lovely, feel your own presence, breathe your own air.

selfie-774399_1920

Magnificently designed, already loved, you have everything  you need inside of you. You were already sent to planet earth with a plan. It is built inside of you. You are wired for it, God already made provision for you showing up. You have been created with the best energy source, atoms and protons right down to the cellular level.

Your expression is so uniquely designed and was made to communicate with your extraordinary maker. Only He can download into your being what and who you were created to become. But you first have to acknowledge his presence.

Open up your mouth and admit to Him how you have searched your entire life trying to make since of your life. Admit to him that this is to much to measure up to, and to keep up with, what the world defines as success. Admit to him that it is exhausting becoming somebody. Admit to him that you are scared of missing the mark. Admit to Him that you think you are not beautiful enough, smart enough, and that it is a lot to juggle. Admit to him that you are afraid of living your whole life and not truly feeling fulfilled. Admit to him that you do not have all the answers in all of your reasoning. Admit to him that you are just afraid.

Tell Him that you need his wisdom and knowledge on the truth of your created being. Tell him you need Him to show you what love looks like. Tell him to show you how you are really supposed to be loved and ask him how to really love yourself. Ask him to lift up a standard against anyone or anything that wants you to feel worthless, powerless, guilty and like you are not enough. Ask him to reveal truth to your heart and mind. Ask him to give you the courage to walk in your own truth when he shows you to it.

meditation-1837347_1920

Know that the core of your design was never measured in doing but only in becoming, When you become all that God created you to become than the doing flows naturally. Trust the natural order of the Universe. God said, “all things are working together for your good.”

When you have found yourself with any negative emotions, dig a little deeper you are doing and not becoming, you are not trusting the God that designed you. But you have placed your trust in your own confidence and what it looks like around you.

I need you to remember there is a natural order, and a natural flow to your life. Your were created to live in trust, not in the world but in God because He is working all things out for your good!
