Bound, Gagged & Released!
Bound, Gagged & Released!
Monday, December 15th, 2019
It was crazy, there I was standing on my own damn bed standing every bit of 5’4”, 165 pounds yelling at my ex-boyfriend who was 6’3” and almost 300 pounds. It had all come to an end, after the most eye opening 14 months and 17 days. As he yelled “Go back to your ex-husband.” I was baffled all I could say was get the fuck out my place and do it fast, the nerve of him to stand in someone else’s home and talk trash to them was beyond me but I should of known then all respect had been lost. My sister and nephew walked in and were shocked both of us raising our voices and as he grabbed his suitcase to leave. Instead of heading out he came back from the front door to yell in my face chin to forehead. It was done for good now, this was his third trip to DC after breaking up with me in haste back in October here it was December 1st!
The past few weeks I’ve been meditating, reading, writing, doing yoga and even an Ebo Sacrifice to clear my path in an effort to get back to me and cleanse myself of any thing sent to harm or to create chaos in my life. This morning I plucked an 8 of Swords in the reverse position. This card is typically known to carry frustration with the feeling of being bound and gagged. On the positive side it carries the energy of self-limiting beliefs, inner critic, releasing negative thoughts, open to new perspectives. Also, when the number 8 is present it carries the energy of balance and harmony. Mostly balance between the material and immaterial worlds like realism on the spiritual plane, and on the material plane, focus and achievement producing results. When the reversed 8 of Swords appears, it means important steps and changes in your life are coming after having made some careful assessments. Like I may be im finally ready to move beyond my fears. So today I will take time to re-examine my past to reflect on incidents or traumas from the past which haven’t been fully dealt with and resolved. You can do this too, think back and see if there is something that you need to work through. You may find it and find yourself feeling a thousand pounds lighter once you work through it. I mean this relationship showed me every time I was triggered that a trauma was being uncovered so I can take a higher road, a different prospective and or response in order to break the cycle. For me it was being vulnerable and trusting a man.
Most of our parents raised us to suppress our emotions. They didn’t use those exact words, of course it came out like, “Stop wearing your heart on your sleeve,” “That’s on you”, ”Suck it up,” “Stop that crying” or “Just deal with it.” We probably spend out entire childhood and at least most of our adulthood finding out that this method doesn’t work. Suppression is not managing emotions at least for myself it only leads to a long list of emotional triggers that cause us to lash out in unpredictable ways on unsuspecting, innocent, and potentially loving people in our lives. So you see recognizing these triggers and changing our reactions is what’s key to releasing old and negative energy. This was a karmic lesson for me to accept the transition from one Pinnacle to the next in life which is usually prepared for approximately two years in advance. There for I will likely make some life-altering decisions in marriage, job or career change, or any number of major changes in my character. With this tarot card in concluding 2019 strongly felt change internally as well as externally is the transition from the first to the second Pinnacle. Although the Reversed 8 of Swords represent being bound and gagged either by my lifes choices or being publicly shamed by a hurt ex, the karma and lesson in it was to release!!!
On the 10's
On the 10's
Wednesday, December 18th, 2019
So, as I write this, I was inspired by the number 10 today. First, I saw 1001 which means: your guardian angels are telling you to focus on your personal development. You are ready to start something new or end an old pattern or cycle, and this is the best time to explore and improve other aspects of yourself.” Then 1010 which signifies your personal development. It is also about your spiritual enlightenment and awakening. It signals the time for blessings and abundance if you will open your heart and mind to receive them. The universe is always conveying messages from Spirit through the angel numbers. So, to quiet my mind I decided to myself, let me read a few verses out of the bible given how the past few weeks had been hellish to say the least. When I cracked open the bible, Nehemiah 9:30-37 opened and read; “30 Yet You were patient with them for many years, and Your Spirit admonished them through Your prophets, but they would not listen; so You gave them into the hands of the people of the land. 31 But in Your great compassion, you did not put an end to them; nor did You forsake them, for You are a gracious and compassionate God.”
I began to reflect on the drive in to work what Karma did I endure this past year/few month. Then I thought what could my Karmic Debt be? Then I thought what were the Karmic Lessons I needed to learn from since so much had gone wrong this year. So right away I investigated what my Karmic Lesson is. In order to do that look at the letters in your name that represent a part of you that is there, the letters missing from your name represent that which is not.
In short, my lesson is that of number 7, mastering vulnerability! The same can be said for my relationships. I recently wanted something but could not properly cultivate it due to my inability to be vulnerable. I focused on every other area of my life except vulnerability as it related to trauma and betrayal, gaslighting and isolation. Like how to remember myself and my truth (much like the number 1 in numerology), allowing openness and intimacy. I must learn to be soft without the tendency to hide, from anything including conflict, from pressure to make decisions others prefer, to trusting others and being seen by others. I need to work on developing trust with myself in order to become more discerning. I made a lot of trauma choices like sabotaging an otherwise healthy relationship because I could not believe he loved me was the root cause of its demise.
When the last three months of my relationship started to fail miserably I started to feel like my actions were warranted because I felt the hesitation in him. Old trauma wounds of betrayal surfaced, my defenses caused me to keep everyone at a distance, even friends, and relationships that do not truly feel whole and supportive due to the lack of vulnerability. My passive aggressive communication style left me resenting that he didn't contribute in the way I wanted him to. I began to grow resentful like in my last three consecutive relationships creating a source of mistrust for myself, not feeling confident in my own knowing and feeling disconnected from my intuition because I could sense the end but couldn't stop it. So, I am working on focusing solely on being morally whole and completely available for a companion/spouse. Now the thing about Karmic Lessons is that looking at the karmic lesson numbers and examine certain emotional, mental, and psychological traumas and how they can be worked through with compassion. This time I can say I got the lesson.

I am feeling lucky as hell today as I considered what was on my heart to blog about and the number ‘7’ came to mind! Why, well because today is a ‘7’ day. '7' is the it is said to be the earth, .number of spiritual quests, secular professions, motivation toward goals with an energy and determination that is nothing short of zealotry. Errybody knows ‘7’ is a lucky number.
In Ancient Egypt, 12 was considered special and the Ancient Babylonians considered 60 the most meaningful number there was. These ancient civilizations based their mathematics and calendar around it that is why an hour has 60 minutes, and a minute 60 seconds. Now consider that there are 7 chakras, 7 days in a week, 7 colors in the rainbow, 7 Continents, 7 wonders of the ancient world including the human brain remembering up to but not more than seven items!
Today I woke up totally motivated and went running. Many of us hop (or crawl) out of bed and jump right in to the craziness of the day. During this mornings run I was able to listen to myself and what my soul is/has been yearning for. Going out in nature helped me ground myself which not only made me calm but motivated throughout the day can also lower pain levels, anxiety and depression according to "Scientists." What does that mean? That the Earth's negative potential can create a stable internal bioelectrical environment for normal function of all body systems. So, oscillations of the intensity of the Earth is important for setting the biological clocks regulating diurnal body rhythms, such as cortisol secretion.
I am grateful to myself for showing up day after day. IT’S hard balancing being a mom, friend, sister, aunt, cousin, employee, entrepreneur and manage to keep everything tidy and bills paid! I mean think about it, seems like we are struggling with time for ourselves. Like, I can recall telling family and friends. "Oh, I will be by" and never followed through. There are obvious symptoms to most of what we are experiencing, which lies in what stressors we allow to affect us, like acute stress, chronic stress and episodic stress which can be timed stress, anticipatory stress, situational stress and Encountered stress. So you see it's inevitable unless you align ones self.
The past 2 weeks I’ve gotten back in to my spirituality connected rituals by getting up DUMB early. This way, I have time to run, journal, do yoga, meditate and watch the sun rising. In order to have abundance in anything I needed to be back in harmony or balance with myself. So, with all things considered my message to you is to STOP WAITING AND TAKE CONTROL OVER YOUR LIFE!
Mastering the Art of Waiting
Mastering the Art of Waiting
Wednesday, January 15th, 2020
Today I plucked the 2 of Pentacles which represents multiple priorities, time management, prioritization and of course adaptability. Ironically, this card was plucked given I’ve been feeling fed up with waiting. I mean is there an art to waiting? In the upright position, this card shows that I am doing an excellent job of balancing these different priorities, and I can pretty much take on whatever life throws at me. Even if I am freaking exhausted! There is a breaking point though between coping with these demands and losing control and boy is it thin! I am finding it difficult to wait for things to materialize in my life because waiting usually means worrying: Did I do enough? I wish I hadn't done that. Will it happen and if so when? Should or could I have done more? I can't believe I said that.
The ability to need to manage my time, energy and resources carefully without losing balance is important. I had to stop, meditate and think do I have enough time or am I in a rush. Is it worth my time and effort; does it yield a return or not? There’s a saying, “You don’t have to be busy to get things done.” Sometimes taking a break is the most productive thing I can do for myself when nothing is going as I feel it should be while rushing from one thing to the next, with little downtime in between. It’s tough because I’ve been striving for equilibrium in life more so for the last 10 years honestly and boy do, I struggle with my growing impatience and negative feelings. Feelings more so towards myself because of my growing impatience. Am I really the type of person who couldn’t just chill for another year of my life for a house, a better job, a loving relationship, a vacation or to simply just to be without obligation, without growing incomprehensibly frustrated?
Apparently, yes. Even worse it’s a club to which, increasingly, most of humanity belongs. I’ve spent enough time bouncing around social media to know that most people are bemoaning the lack of fulfillment in their lives while pursuing goals perceived to bring fulfillment. “Studies have shown that 32 percent of consumers abandon slow sites between one and five seconds,” and if that’s true for websites what does this mean for those who’ve exhausted patience and time towards the pursuit of a house, a better job, a loving relationship and a vacation? Those are pretty assed up statistics about our inability to wait for anything and just about humanity as a whole. Waiting is unfulfilling, pointless at times, useless and less valuable in an on-demand universe. The world is fast while becoming faster, faster, faster these days. That’s the current reality, and it’s not going anywhere. Leaving a page that isn’t loading isn’t a character fault; it’s smart and the same can be said for someone dragging their feet about you. In a world where you can get information everywhere and faster the only way to somewhat sanely get by is by pacing yourself. As you wait by doing things well and of value should makes people wanna stick around but the are you fulfilled or still waiting to feel fulfilled?
In short, I am remaining patient in the face of the universe despite wanting to run ahead of Spirit so many times. I’ve learned I can only be truly effective when I trust Spirit while waiting for answers. This life of mine makes me pause a lot and I often feel held-up by mundane things, people and situations so when life is hard, the time on hold is harder to swallow. Today my spirit was consumed with frustration thinking long and hard at my life overall. Just then I received a text from my Army buddy which was, 2nd Corinthians verses 5-7 which read “Walk by faith, not by sight.” The essence of faith is believing without seeing so, I will ground myself, meditate for direction and rest in the fact that by letting go of worry I will let go of all things that aren’t gravitating towards me while trusting that in time i'll eventually cultivate the peace, stability and predictability in life I aspire to have for peace of mind. So mote it be, ASE!
Here's a 5! Cool, i'll take the change!

OK so here I was per the usual waiting for inspiration for my next blog entry to fall on me like an anvil. I mean I could create a blog entry every day, but would it be quality, value, and would it be worth reading? Just then I stopped the prayer I’d been listening to at my desk through my ear buds this morning. My heart and mind were struck with conviction as he said you're leveling up, the pain that you've gone through is worth the beauty you're birthing! Bayyybee! When I tell you! (in my best comedic Monique Voice) The pain I endured was more pressure than a diamond and a crock-pot!
You see I needed reassurance that I am in fact full of light and that I am doing the right things to attract abundance in life, love, family, home and career. After speaking with other Light-workers like myself to check my chakras and perform readings for me as a precaution to double check myself I felt empowered, the information was on point. As a reader at times we get stalker cards or false reads or even worse we vibrate so low our aura field is susceptible to attack. I wanted to make sure I was making the right choices going forward since I’m not getting any younger. In short, sometimes its hard to see where the universe is taking you. I have kicked and screamed the entire time at times trying to control outcomes.
Today is a ‘5’ day, sewing the seeds of change today for a better tomorrow. Five carries the energy of change, adaptability, freedom-loving, romance, resourcefulness, whit, fun-loving, curiosity, flexibility and accommodation. Cease the day and embody the ‘5’. Eye know Eye will, today is a special date that will forever be etched in my mind as I relinquish things that no longer serve me like self-doubt, other people’s judgments and expectations! Popped my ear buds back in on 639 Hz....love and abundance frequency with God numbers! (devilishly grins while thinking....) Who can stop us?!
Karmic Bullshit & Doshic Balance
Karmic Bullshit & Doshic Balance
Thursday, April 23, 2020
Greetings everyone, of course I only blog when I have something to contribute with the New Moon in Taurus and let me tell you I have A LOT! However, you and I know it’s best to keep it simple to keep your audience’s attention! Now on with the order of business. So, of course I read tarot cards and as of the last full moon which bought about some changes that frankly caught me completely off guard in matters of the heart with my twin flame being on the fence with me and his Karmic it’s been rough. Since like most empaths I’m familiar with, are also going through cycles and rebirths therefor I’ve begun to go within to restore my spirit. Every day you make a choice to enter in to an energetic connection with everyone you meet or build a bond with which at times may result in "Tower Moments" as we say in tarot (represents pivotal moments where everything is falling apart. You might unexpectedly lose a job, or get dumped, or have a massive fall out with your family- something of this nature).
As a collectively with this last cycle ending Karma from the last eight years and this upcoming Taurus Moon we'll all be forced to address our wounds (like abandonment, emasculation, emotional neglect, being bullied, not being heard, being left) placing pressure on our third eye and crown charkas. Of course, I’m used to healing myself from every experience that I have gained wisdom and gray hairs ultimately going within. In going within I’m learning my triggers, what to eat for optimal mental heath performance as well as tapping in to more spiritual practices that allow me to develop a diverse set of healthy coping mechanisms as well as counteract mental and cellular damage related directly to stress. I chose to breakdown my Ayurvedic mind-body type and by that, I mean balancing my whole-body’s healing system. Do you know what Ayurvedic discipline would work best for you?
Usually when things are going on, I need to be made aware of I experience dreams that are often very insightful tying back to my natural Doshic constitution. Some of us have more Vata dreams and others more Pitta and others more Kapha but not dreaming at all obviously due to an imbalance going on within. With shedding low vibration energies and toxic relationships i've learned to take a step back and not take it so personal because some are lessons while others are distractions to shape your character and bring you to your life purpose and destiny. I am working on improving my sleep and over all systematic health as I lay the foundation for second year of my third Pinnacle of Life. With all karama or karmic ties cut we can deeply heal and refocus and embrace a new cycle of life and im ready to move! Yall ready!?
8 Querencia In Self-Love
8 Querencia In Self-Love
Tuesday. October 6, 2020
It’s been 5 months since I last posted, 5 being the number of changes coupled with this Covid-19 stuff. Things have definitely changed. I felt inspired to compose this blog entry titled 8 Querencia In Love. Now, let’s break this down….”8” represents domination, control, achievement, material success, justice, balance, cycles, karma and past lives and if turned sideways is the infinity symbol. The root word for querencia is ‘querer’ meaning to want and ‘quaerere’ to seek, gain, obtain, ask. Querencia actually means taking a defensive stand drawing from one's inner strength; where one feels at home being your most authentic self. I often find after relationships we are left transformed, in many ways by love as for me I grew stronger in my individuality. For years I’d felt stifled by jobs, bonds and relationships that killed my natural ability to be uniquely me.
Three days ago, as I was journaling I received a text from my bestie of 23 years. It was a song on Youtube by Freddy Jackson called Look Around. I noticed the song was posted 8 years ago with 88k views. The lyrics so melodic seemed to float on the current of weed and slightly stagnant air while smoking. These words resonated with me most, “Look around, baby, baby. Oh darling, baby. Love is a feeling you're looking for….” You see I am also guilty of such and through my experiences I've come to realize you don’t look for love, love comes to you, love can be a feeling experienced in the moment but also...love is an emotion manifested by acts of love and felt in that moment.
Human psyche and behavior dictate disingenuous forms of love through learned behavior that lead to expectations which if we simply accept that we are infinite individual energies, having a human experience, connecting with one another we’d be able to accept love more freely. In reflecting only once the veil of inadequacy, self-talk is removed its then that we can maturely begin to break down those guarded walls of disappointment so we are not attached to outcomes or the physical (human manifestation) because we are incarnated energy. energy that will experience other energies over many life times.
You see i've had ex-s through out my life try to reconnect after feeling I was a missed opportunity. In this universe there is never a missed opportunity because we are infinite and will experience many lovers, soul connections and ties throughout our many earthly incarnations. Since I’ve had to revisit this lesson in love during this incarnation it’s safe to say I got the lesson. Finally, Angel Number 888 is Self-love which is resolute, is you can understand it you will be blessed with spiritual abundance. Just like the infinity symbol I am forever and to love myself unique quirks and all, to stand for who I am and embrace self-love regardless of whether people come and go. Besides I'm irreplaceable :)
Routine Serendipity...yes please!
Routine Serendipity...yes please!
Wednesday. November 25, 2020
I don’t blog as I constantly reiterate in my blog entry openings and as I am typing this, I’m listening to my Pisces sister Jhene Aiko belt out angelic tunes singing, “While we’re young.” This song sounds like music to my soul its serendipitous feeling is definitely a vibe. In the song she says, “think we should do something crazy, like say Fuck everyone and just run away from the daily routine, yeah you know what I mean.” Basically, I have always lived my life through rose colored lenses having a child like quality, humbly enjoying everything as if it were for the first time and often making heart over-head decisions. In life there’s always going to be obligations and experiences that at times are devastating to the point we forget that we are masters of our own fate. Most people can not tap into this type of self-loving, free energy!
There’s a phenomenon happening in the world to date literally. I know you or someone you know has awakened (having self-realizations, authentic glimpses of reality and others self-serving reality). An increase in their vibrational frequency has occurs bringing them in to alignment of the pure white light of higher vibrational frequency. By this I mean that people seem to be having moments where they awaken out of their familiar senses of self, and out of their familiar senses of what the world is, into a much greater reality far beyond anything they knew existed. I enjoy awakening others along my journey with the gift of clairvoyance and psychic alignment. Psychics naturally have a higher vibrational energy, and this is how I was born communicating spirit's energy at a higher frequency than most humans. In terms of heavenly/angelic energy as a medium we are the same, or at least a close to the frequency of theirs. One of the many ways I’ve been able to keep my innerG (energy) fresh and authentic is by allowing myself to just be without observation or self-criticism.
The experiences of awakening differ from person to person but when God wants your attention or to grow spiritually, he will send signs boo. I personally have you gone through experiences that forced me to spiritually grow and emotionally mature. Then I began to notice the whole sense of “self” disappear as I suffered an “Ego death” and I began to appreciate even more the little things, the special people and places that mean more in life in as simple a form as possible. For me my readiness to rage over an injustice seemed unnecessary because it is at this point that I realized I am commanding the room and everything in the presence of my life. Finally, I was able to let go and live just as free as a child as I’d ever had which was invigorating. I was able to accept that expectations led to disappointments and that everything is so uncertain I had to detach myself. It as here that I returned to the Deborah I was before society and critics tried to kill me with criticism that turned in to negative self-talk. To be free of burdens and not wanting for anything attracted everything and this was my new pursuit of happiness and I hope that by reading this you will begin pursuing yours. You may encounter many defeats, but it will only develop courage and the desire for positive change.
Realignment & Revaluation

Man would you just look at that my last entry was on November 25th, almost a whole year! With just 38 days left until the year 2022. Just when you think everything is going fine in your life…obstacles pop up to ruin things…Maybe it’s a friend you caught on to or your boss being a turd, or ya stale ass family on some bullshit or random bills occur (with zero idea where it came from, how or even why you’re paying it). Then there’s the friend or special person that just starts acting entitled or weird…annoying right?!
Exhausting af! Life feels like an obstacle course — one challenge after another! I always heard what I’d called hippies, wealthy people, oblivious people and overly religious say, “It didn’t have to be so difficult” so confidently. Let me tell you, it really doesn’t HAVE to be unnecessarily difficult. You don’t have to be all in your head in order to avoid all the obstacles, you need to be prepared so you are READY to tackle any issues head on. Most people don't need a road map because they do what is told, expected or projected on to them. Is this you? (In my best Nigerian voice imitation.)
Observing yourself is the key to your future, by knowing what you’re getting yourself in to before you invest. People have their own identity like a brand, a charisma, and a light capable of inspiring others. Created through a process in which they've learned to accept themselves, with their virtues and defects. They're clear on their priorities and how to achieve their goals in life.
I get the biggest kick out of being my authentic self since, especially around the self touting arrogant because I don’t understand how one cannot be them self naturally; I was born often rejected because if it. My divine gift is to help you to recognize that your soul has great power to instantly transform aspects of your life including the body, because the soul is the very energy that sets your atoms, and therefore your cells, in motion.
When you are out of alignment with your soul path, you experience pain in various forms (remember those obstacles I was rapping to you about back in paragraph 1). This is your soul trying to get you to shift and come into harmony or back into harmony for some (backsliders what they called it in church but since im spiritual and not religious we’ll say you wildin’. Not to say that you will experience a pain-free life when you live completely from your soul (keeping in mind and practice universal laws). As life passes we experience the loss of people and pets we love, creating tears within the body that must be experienced as grief in order for us to move forward. Everyone knows grief or pain makes you grow/mature.
Other than grief, living from your soul perspective there are few things in life that cause either illness or pain. Having pain, illness, or a sense of being lost, exposes you being out of proper alignment because your body is clearing a pattern. Once you shift back into harmony with your soul, amazing and miraculous things will start to happen. You’ll even attract what’s divinely yours!

Save Yourself Black Man
Save Yourself Black Man
Tuesday. November 8th, 2022
Soon to be the year 2023 with just 54 days left I felt inclined to address, “Our Black Men” to touch on one of Queen Afua’s latest IG posts in her life's passion of health and wellness for Women. Let’s first start by saying this isn’t an attack on Black Men however, I MUST address everything that has been going on energetically, mentally and physically in our communities. As I sip my coffee and scroll on my laptop and cell phone, I’m slack jawed at the news articles and headlines lately when it comes to our Black Men. With headlines that read “Officer indicted for 2nd Degree Rape”, “Man Accused of Firing Gun At School”, “Man Fires Shots During Road Rage At Woman”, “Father killed His Three Children, a Woman & Himself”, “Man Kills Ex-girlfriend & Her Family In Maryland, Then Kills Himself; 5 dead!”, “Man kills homosexual partner due to fear of exposure” and “Woman Killed After Threatening to Out DL Men on Facebook”, “Man Rapes Paralyzed Elderly Woman For Hours”, “Man involved in foster care programs arrested for child sex crimes” and “A 4 Year Old, 14 Year Old & 15 Year Old shot in DC in less than 30 days recently by….you guessed it….a BLACK MALE!
If you'll notice all the young, up and coming Rappers, they're all in tight clothes, rocking mid drift tops, heels, platforms, dual gendered attire, wigs, weave and nail polish. Then there's all the gay rappers telling women how to get and keep a man or to be hypersexual women, gay stylist setting the industry beauty standards with overtones reminiscent of drag queens and willingness to be a sneaky link to perceived "taken heterosexual" males.
One must wonder what’s with the uptick in this of crime, violence and effeminate over tones within the Black Males of Our Community?! For starters statistically speaking poverty, unemployment, and income inequality is a recipe for increased crime but let’s unpack the root cause beyond the surface level. Statistically speaking “Black” Americans are 20% more likely to experience serious psychological distress than our counter parts. Then add to the fact that males are taught to be womanizers, stoic, tough and self-reliant. Now factor in; the lack of access to mental health care, the ability to afford mental health care, the biasness in healthcare, ongoing or daily “Crisis”, transportation issues or financial means and being ostracized or judged in the community makes them less likely to seek treatment.
Well, in my twenties I was so caught up in the hype of “The System” and “White Supremacy” theory before shifting perspectives to the whole “Equity”, “Anti-Police Narrative” and their inability to examination themselves as sign of weakness? After a few relationships and entanglements of the same experience, I began to wonder…what is the actual threat to the Male and how do we save our own from the effects their mental health. The top three mental health issues by order affecting the Black Male are Anxiety, Depression and Bipolar Disorder which I believe are in order of progression like stages of terminal illness. If you have one of the mental health issues above left untreated will progress to the latter. The leading causes of death are listed statistically in order as, Accidental Death, Suicide, Homicide, Heart Disease and Cancer when it comes to the Black Male but no mention of mental health.
Looking back at my life I certainly feel exposure to trauma, whether through witnessing or direct victimization as a daily reality also effects Black Males. Without positive Male Role Models or Balanced, Nurturing Females a lack of emotional coping skills develops into learned behaviors and social acceptance often immolating the very direct victimization they’ve experienced and often haven’t healed from. These behaviors can be one or a combination of the following.
a) Promiscuous so they’re praised by other males or for financial and social gain.
b) Hyper Masculinity, where heterosexuality is the unalterable norm since gender roles are taught and homosexuality is thought to be less masculine
c) Being violent not solely due to testosterone as per science but also male instigated violence and the need to be act aggressive and violent to prove their masculinity or “Manly Identity”
d) Being dominant by being preoccupied with power to the point that it causes harm to others, such as verbal, physical, online bullying and other criminal behaviors.
e) Sexual aggression towards women like making unwanted sexual comments or sexist jokes to women, committing sexual harassment even rape and behave as if they are entitled to women’s bodies.
f) Not being a feminist ally by taking up for males when they’re wrong and view women as less than.
g) Drug addiction for mental, emotional and physically medicating as escapism.
h) Poverty mind set, greedy and unsatisfied suffering from a “Lack” Mentality.
i) Effeminate behavior One study found that over a quarter of men thought they should have the final word in relationships, try to compete or out do their partners or females in their life.
j) Homosexual behavior which can have many contributing factors with the most dangerous one being disease and personality identity disorders. SN: I would need to start an entire new post, so I’ll leave it at that.
The societal norm in our Nation seems to champion the “Fraternal Birth Order Effect.” Essentially, the more brothers a male has, the more likely he is to be gay. Ever noticed large families typically have a lot of incestuous behaviors statistically. Now ponder this, a lot of social models can be considered a “Non-Fraternal Social Order Effect” …ya see that? You like the way I reworded that huh? Follow me though for example, Fraternities, Incarcerated men, the Masons, the Boy Scouts, Sports Teams, Gangs, and Male Dominant Religious Sects like Priesthood…? Then there’s the song, “This Is a Man’s World.” You must wonder why, in short men are like pack animals in my opinion and over the last decade male sexual fluidity has increase 15%. In order to save yourselves Black Men, healing is needed to cultivate environments from a young age for yourself and other young men that fosters healthy emotional expression, exposure to cultural and religious diversity, healthy dieting, nurturing, psychological counseling, finance management, fostering home environments that are less hostile, a balanced male and female mentorship. If you are a Black Man and want to assist in “Saving The Black Man” you can start by acknowledging your own issues, stop faking for once and keep it a buck!
I have been personally victimized by all that i've mentioned directly and indirectly. I feel we all have a moral responsibility to speak up about acts in poor mental health, poor judgement, bad decisions, negative and violent behaviors and such is needed within the Community and in our Family dynamics. "Hurt people hurt people" and many deceive themselves by denying this within themselves. Although I’m more spiritual than religious I read the bible religiously lol! I love when the bible stated, “Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore, be zealous and repent” Deuteronomy 8:5. I believe that is we start with the youngest we can build a new future because it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks. Don't believe me just ask all the women who married a man and was unsuccessful at changing him! Fellas it's time to step it up!
1 Corinthians 13:11 reads, "When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." Translation: You are responsible for your own healing and self-educating to heal your traumas as you mature not harbor it and take it out on others. I also believe in rehabilitative health in that one must acknowledge they need help therefor having a proactive community and support group that encourages treatment and accountability would be a necessity in healing our current adolescent and adult males.
If you’ve successfully managed to read this entire blog beyond the average 8 second human attention span then this is the sign your ancestors want you to, “DO THE WORK.” You have a moral responsibility to yourself and those around you to lead by example and not by perfection but by being real. The success of our men, children, women and race as a whole...depends on being intentional with your actions because it all depends on your choices! Thank you for coming to my TED talk!

So dig it, I just so happened to be on a professional social network following this awesome Negotiator and Best-Selling Author. First let me brag that he is Black American, highly educated and an active father to his son! Any who, he said that he’d once interviewed a former FBI Agent and Body Language Expert on negotiating anything. He stated he'd asked him, “What were some of the thing’s negotiators in the business world often overlook?” One guy responded, “Walking Away Completely.” The agent’s response was, “They overlook the fact that everything has an impact.” After reading that statement I realized I had an ah hah moment!
For the last 13 years I’ve been doing “The Work” as some would call it, self-improving, honing my skillsets, hobbying and pushing out creative content but without direction and often infrequently. I hadn’t made the connection that communicating with intent was necessarily a good thing at least not in the sense that the guy was referring to. I’d practically missed opportunities because I wasn’t proactive or intentional in my communication. Mind you, i've took a Business Communications Course. In the Author's post he said, "Every word, every email, every gesture and every element of communication should be done with the purpose of advancing your goals." If you don’t move with that level of intention, the things you care about in the negotiation, you'll end up losing. As in losing your site of your vision and the ability to keep your passion or missing your starting point.
Over the years I’d witnessed the men i dated, foster siblings, relatives and Co-Workers. So many around me used me and my connections and others around them to socially climb the ladder at the expense of others in “Crab City” to penetrating social groups to leverage social and economic status as a LIFE GOAL. As I matured in life, I vowed to never be THAT thirsty for opportunities. In fact, I am an old soul that craves authenticity and genuine connections. Instead of choosing to do as they have by adopting a sycophant mental and putting on a façade or to keep up with the Jones's. Their behavior came off as opportunistic.
I’ve always prided myself on the fact that I’ve always had my own motion and didn’t need to hang around anyone to feel relevant or affluent. I also am self-educated, motivated and supported so I worked hard without favors and handouts of any kind, except for the sweat of my brow. Then I heard the same message of intention and consistency reiterated through Al Sharpton’s, “Morning Thoughts After Pre-Dawn.” He also stated that in order to be heard and carry out my purpose, I needed to own and master the level which I am currently. So going forward I will be more intentional with my actions, commitments, communication and more importantly socializing in order to build my brand and follow my passion of being a “Healer” and “Seer.” After 13 years it’s imperative to make connections to allow business networking and negotiations and stop being so introverted.
One of the things I mentioned on the gentleman’s post who posed the question, “What were some of the thing’s negotiators in the business world often overlook?” To which I responded, “Your posts really intrigue me. As a “Seer” I’ve come to experience and witnessed what I relate as the “double-blind” effect in which all parties are blinded. Sometimes the universe will withhold the prevailing, elevation, answers or even allow failure needed until you’re ready, yoked, disciplined or evolved. In life there’s always a certain level of unpredictability.” His response was, "This is a great point, Deborah! This is quite fascinating when it happens, isn’t it?" It reminds me of the concept of the “Fog of War.” Where all parties that are in the conflict are overwhelmed to the point where they lose their situational awareness. I'd had another "AH-HA" moment that I realized one reason i was held back was because I had evil intentioned individuals around sabotaging me out of jealousy which had become a "Fog of War" keeping me stagnant.
In short, always look at all variables present and trust your gut assuming blindly the Pros and Cons of what may not be obvious and trust your gut and not underestimate unknown or the element of surprise and the act of intention good or bad. Where are you lacking intention?
The Psycho”sis” Unmasking
The Psycho”sis” Unmasking
Sunday. November 13th, 2022
Bihhhhh, I was headed to the best part of my life at 34 years old. Female Collective!! Honey, let me tell you something (eyes squinting in my Nene Leakes voice)! Fast forward five years later, I nun went through a spiritual upgrade after leaving one job for another, attempted two unsuccessful relationships, buried my biological mom and was betrayed by the females around me. I remember feeling some kind of way when my “cousins,” “siblings,” comrades and a “self-professed BFF would make statements like, “I wish I was your size,” “I wish I had a house too,” “How did you get that,” and “Why can’t I find someone like him." PAUSE!!! I've heard the highest form of flattery is imitation, but it’s only flattery if the person isn’t trying to outright steal your identity or undermine your status or confidence. Not every person who copies you is flattering in fact its far from it. Some of them actually want to be YOU and even hurt you in the process. (Ie: if someone copies you so much that it feels as though they’re constantly leeching off your individualism and ideas, for example.) What part of the game is this?
2022 was the biggest “UNMASKING” of the females around me than I could have ever imagined. They were out here behaving like Hedy in Single White Female. Have you ever had a female associate that fished for compliments? Never seemed to be happy themselves and were irritated by others happiness and blessings. Craved being the center of attention and to be sexually desired by all men or put other women down while comparing themselves. What about age discrimination and backbiting by older female comrades and female relatives, backhanded compliments? I personally experienced all of thee above plus body shaming, gang stalking, defaming my character, theft, foster siblings disrespecting my boundaries to stay away from my kids and trying to influence them, creating false narratives about me, lying on me, revenge porn, voyeuring, paying online Babalawo for dark magic, inboxed all my followers, stalked all my social media platforms and any comments I posted on IG or my professional page to include a psychotic obsession to be me. Stole my I.D., opened bank accounts, got food stamps in my name, hacked my email and unemployment online account, copied my fashion choices, mannerisms and my spiritual teachings to include Angel Numbers and Tarot Card Reading. To the point where I knew these behaviors were deep-rooted Mental Illness. I must say this, in my 39 years I’ve never wanted to be someone else. I’ve always had my own motion and didn’t need to hang around anyone to feel relevant or affluent.
According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), for a person to be diagnosed with NPD, they must exhibit five or more of the following symptoms:
A grandiose sense of self-importance
Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, or beauty
A need for excessive admiration
A sense of entitlement
Exploitation of others
A lack of empathy
Envy of others
I was around mentally unwell people for years! These women were used to not having enough money, not experiencing enough attention and love, not having enough status in life and not possessing the skills or requisites to achieve at a certain level. Which is why since a child I knew I as different and felt more connected to people, animals, nature, the universe and God. My senses were on 1000 unlike my peers and I cared more about eating habits, environment, educating myself, my health, went to bat over injustices to the innocent, poor, elderly, disabled and my loved ones which I still do til this day. As I have gone through levels of spiritual enlightenment since my initial journey began in September 2012. By September 2016, I became demonstrative in my spiritual disciplines, and I began to distance myself from people that were emotional dumpers or projectionist, attention seekers, gossips, addicted to alcohol or anything that lead me back to self-destructive behaviors, bad memories and making impulsive decisions. My spirit became so calm I was able to hear God’s voice clearer than I had before and much was revealed, like 39 years of being mistreated and sabotaged behind my back by my foster sisters who are really my second cousin on my Mother’s side and their first cousins who I grew up around.
Since experiencing all this, I became thee most comfortable in my skin as I’d ever been before and I spent time reading, meditating and enjoying my children and my quirky hobbies. A few times a year I’d have small get togethers at my home where I’d host a female associates met throughout my life and a few relatives or distant cousins. Every event I cooked and decorated before hosting and I often posted pics of myself at work, my children or fun outings. It was at this time I realized these women rarely liked my posts, were committed to watching my IG & FB Stories and just like the meme says, “They don't like me but they watch my every move” couldn’t be truer. This really sucked because I’d just started to become comfortable about three years ago to allow people around me more, opening my home up to a select few I thought I had a level of trust in…. looking back Trust has no levels either you do or ya don't!
By shedding light on these toxic individuals' mental health issues and disorders that's been left undiagnosed or treated for years I realized 1 thing. My light irritated their demons; I was too independent, outspoken, confident, positive, ambitious, healed and strong to where I triggered them personally. Even worse the older women I’d respected in the family were jealous of my independence and youthful appearance and spoke condescendingly towards me despite being church goers. What’s worse was that these types of energies came in all ages, shapes, sizes and colors like…I real live had been victimized leading me to an epiphany! Many would confide in me as a means of entertainment with exaggerated stories about others, their sexual conquests and even asked me questions to mock the covert betrayals that was going on in real time behind my back. What motivated these women to be such toxic, conniving, forked tongued women? Even at my lowest my mind couldn’t conceive acting in such a way.
I began to consider just how divided and wicked women can be towards one another and for no reason other than their own insecurities, unhealed traumas and the need to be praised and accepted by others. Since introducing these women to one another and inviting them to my home events over the years they maintained a bond through Facebook and Instagram where they could triangulate me and create narratives in the hopes that no one would find me interesting, desirable or honest. Around July of 2021, I went from 150 Facebook friends to a flood of over 500 requests for my Friend List. I accepted them all and invited them to follow my spiritual business page then immediately deleted them from my personal Facebook page. What seemed strange to me was the way these men threw themselves at me after while it became obvious i was being set up in some way.
Many of these women displayed jealous, somatic, grandiose and persecutory behaviors which is consistent in bouts of delusion leading to Psychosis! Induced by alcohol, drug abuse and isolation they’d often experience psychotic breaks which include a lack of empathy, manipulation and disregard of consequences for their actions. Psychology states “Feeling” Jealous or Envious triggers the same brain receptors that induce pain and can lead to feelings of anxiety and worthlessness and even acts of verbal and physical abuse. It’s not just the person feeling jealous whose psyche is damaged it’s the person who is the object of jealousy and envy. According to N.I.H., envy is associative of Narcissistic Personality Disorder which is dangerous if left untreated may lead to harm or wishing the subject of extreme jealousy harm. Hopefully this article reaches some of these Psycho"SIS" and encourages them to seek help!
As for the Sista's that are positive and influential continue to shine your light and raise your young women to be esteemed and learn to accept that happiness is a mental choice; another's happiness has no impediment on their own. HELP HEAL OUR WOMEN! Grant these women the mental help needed to stop the division amongst us.
The Case of the “MESS”sogynist
The Case of the “MESS”sogynist
Wednesday. November 23rd, 2022
What is a misogynist: a person who hates or discriminates against women. The top characteristics of a misogynist are; competitive attitude against women, abuse and reification of women, irregular treatment and discrimination, boasting in female misery, sexual aggression, degradation of the social status of women, psychological manipulation and power positioning. Over the last decade misogynists have taken the forefront from our political leaders to municipal leaders, to spouses, relatives and siblings. The actions and inactions of the Male Pillars in our lives and their treatment towards women whether directly or indirectly negative due to degradation and abhorrence of women is broadly socially accepted.
What causes a misogynistic attitude? Psychologically and statistically speaking an unconscious hatred in men toward females form early in life, often because of a trauma involving a female figure they trusted like an abusive or negligent mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, or girlfriend which seeds their brain’s subcortical matter. The danger of internalized misogyny is one's inability to accept themselves often acting out with sexist behavior, abuse, and misconduct towards females. It’s rather mental when men believe damaging distorted triggered beliefs misperceived creating a narcissist misogynist. Many of these men grow into adulthood playing the “Tough guy,” but are really, tragically, a hurt wounded little boy, overcompensating for psychological wounds in childhood, that he has no insight into.
They say you are who you are going to show up in life as an adult by the age of 5, experiences will define who you will be up until this point and is a critical point of self-development. Over the years I’ve experienced Narcissistic Misogyny most of my life either from my children’s fathers, my brother, cousins and even Supervisors. It is impressionable and imperative that young men are presented with a well-rounded experience from parents and role models. A proper balance of masculine and feminine emotion should be taught and accepted; I was fortunate to experience a dual foster parent household. I understand women such as myself while raised in a toxic environment I learned the balance and its influence of gender roles in a Patriarchal society. After careful observation and firsthand abuse by many of these misogynists they're usually enabled by female misogynists, some out of guilt and some out of learned behavior.
I personally don’t condone wrong behavior for any reason, and I believe I have a moral responsibility as a woman to speak on impartiality and injustices and I believe that we are equal, “Every object or phenomenon in the universe consists of two opposite aspects.” The truth is there are two genders both of whom are strong in certain areas and weak in others and vice versus which create an elliptic balance. Culturally we are taught as women to be in servitude and as of the turn of the decade, to lead as women in the U.S., and the Global economic advancement. Let's be real the United States exceeds most of the wealth and career options that women in other countries don't have the social norm of experiencing, which effects the women in our country. With having to be hard working, strong emotionally and physically protective it's eroded some of our women's ability to feel safe and be soft, nurturing, healing and subservient women. SN: Particularly, black women have been the backbone of humanity while being under loved, overlooked and toughened since history could record (Imma touch on this too in another blog entry).
Through all of these cultural changes in gender roles, we have males who view themselves as women, act as women yet hate women which is also a psychological disorder. Many of these males are influential in the beauty, fashion, and music industry while setting the standard of what beauty is with the advent of plastic surgery and Trans-feminism. What occurred in their life that would make them assume these "Roles" and "Costuming in women’s attire?" Why hasn’t anyone addressed the mental state behind these actions? This discussion seems to rattle a lot of nerves when we look at the environmental effects of the male mental, fatherless households, single motherhood, impoverishment, abuse, avaricious mindset, mental & emotional abuse and manipulation. When I say those things I think of the quote, “Who hurt you?” Nothing hurts more than being disappointed by the single person you thought would never hurt you and scientifically rejection is processed by the brain as physical pain. Perhaps some of this pain creates a Post Traumatic Personality Disorder and Malignant Narcissist Misogynistic Males bordering, often, on Anti-social Personality Disorder (Sociopathy or Psychopathy) often are physically violent and even more tragically many go on to kill the woman that they so claimed to “love”. How does one rewire the brains in these men who are not capable of giving or receiving love.
What can be done to restore the mental health of the males effected by traumatic experiences to develop a strong male, masculine presence with transparency while providing a safe space for emotional maturity. How do we engage these males to shed their perception of women and when will the women who have been influential in the lives of these male misogynist begin to accept accountability? I mean really work towards fixing themselves while accepting their behavior that contributed to their overall effect on their son, nephews, grandsons, cousins, and such. When the men look within themselves and acknowledge their brokenness and toxic behaviors maybe they too will reach out to a professional psychologist or therapist. I believe these steps would help restore families and work environments but first we must STOP CONDONING the “MESSY” misogynic behaviors firsthand of misogynists because to be quiet during an injustice makes you just as guilty!
Daddy’s Lil’ “Ghou”rl
Daddy’s Lil’ “Ghou”rl
Friday. November 25th, 2022
So, there I was looking at a video from Soft White Underbelly and if you’ve ever watched one episode, you’d understandably find it easy to become intrigued. During this episode I witnessed the body language of a Pimp and his “Bottom Hoe” as they interviewed. One thing that stuck out to me was her need for the approval to speak and what to say all while nervously moving around while rubbing on him for comfort to inadvertently self-soothing. When asked about her upbringing she stated she had numerous parental figures as a result of her parent’s separation in early childhood shuttling back and forth and inconsistent stability living with various stepparents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and ect. 24 years, working in the industry at age 43 her Pimp was promising her retirement with a house and white picket fence. In my Flavor Flav voice I thought….”WOW,” what must she be mentally going through to be at this point?
I mean “Daddy Issues” is a real thing! Different types of emotional distress stem from father issues like distrust and lack of self-esteem which can lead to addictions and cycles of repeated dysfunctional decisions and toxic or codependent relationships with men. Regardless of the reason, Fatherlessness daughters tend not to acknowledge their emotional disorder. Assessing the impact of not having a clear understanding of what a healthy, loving male/female relationship should look and feel like. When understanding those whose fathers were absent it’s clear to see the emotional impact is similar. For some who had no father or father figure at all and then there are those who had a father or Father Figure that was physically present but were unattached, unavailable, absent, abusive, suffering from addiction(s) or a combination of all thee above having the same impact. As I recollect about some of the females i was raised round and met over the course of my life, one thing was evident., They would do anything to keep a man and seemed to be stuck in a certain age mentally and spoke from a first- and third-persons perspective at times with regards to their fathers. What I do know is that im not the only one to notice the phenomenon of immature women. Mr. Al Sharpton said on his Morning Review on IG, “You’d be really surprised at how many people don’t operate like they’re grown, and they’ve been a certain age for a while now. Just never coming to grips that they are now the ones that should be the grown up.”
I believe a father is a daughter’s first male friend, first love, first protector and comforter. I mean it starts early in a young womans life with the whole, “You’re so pretty” to “You’re sexy” which for some translates into "Tell me I’m beautiful" because my father never praised my appearance or validated me.” Not feeling heard or protected about hurt or complaints of feeling unsupported, teased, bullied, body shamed, sexually harassed, and objectified or worse assaulted. It is ingrained in our society that a father is supposed to be the to provide, protect and lead which without this presence and traits leaves the desire to fulfill that bond by any means. Some become so stuck in the mental cycle they have a need for everyone’s approval and attention at all costs. A daughter’s sense of confidence and self-worth is linked directly to her relationship with her father where at their core of these distressed daughters there’s a devious, hyper-sexual, sensitive, needy/clingy individual incapable of love.
I remember a few positive things of my Father (Uncle); he always got up and went to work and sat and meticulously wrote and paid bills. One night after just getting off work as a Backhoe Operator (after mid-night), took me out in my snowsuit despite me being home, sick all day to make snow angels in the dark, in the snow! Taking me to go play basketball at Roper Middle school basketball court. Getting a box of chocolates and teddy bears every year on Valentine’s Day with the size corresponding with my age! He and my foster brother putting up my own Playground Playset in the backyard for my birthday and lastly him telling my mom to do my hair and dress me pretty to go out with him to visit family. Asking me to do push ups in my Class ‘A’s when visiting from Army Training. Watching him make his famous rice pudding and stuffed rock fish. I’d gone fishing and biking with him and he’d sit and talk to me as he watered the lawn at night when the sky was clearest of sky pollution and point out the stars.
I believe that even though those experiences existed for me, I also have an obfuscated view of what a healthy bond is as well. No child is raised unscathed and that’s the truth.” Then there’s Daddy Issues on a whole “nother” level when it come to the young women who had their Fathers attention, so much so that going from the center of attention or only child to no attention or having to share it can cause psychotic episodes. I started analyzing my bonds and how hard my Dad (Uncle) worked and sacrificed solely out of love for his family and others around him. I didn’t learn to set appropriate boundaries with relatives I perceived as “loved ones” by supporting them even if they have given up on themselves and accepting mental, emotional, and financial abuse.” My Daddy issues manifested in a different way in that I was a habitual people pleaser because I witnessed unwavering loyalty despite the toxic behaviors and environments. I tended to have a high tolerance for toxic behaviors and would overextend myself in obvious non-mutually beneficial connections.
In conclusion, for some overcoming Fatherless Daddy Syndrome can be as simple as recognizing a pattern, releasing a habit and or bond(s). For others it’s acknowledging where you are presently, accepting the errors in your ways, making a conscious choice to change, releasing self-limiting beliefs, giving up addictions and for others forgiving their younger selves. I’ve always had self-love and unfortunately, we all must face our role in the process of placing blame in what we allowed and accepted, healing and forgiving. I urge many of these hurt women to do the work by self-assessment, developing and practicing emotionally healthy habits and coping skills. Speaking with a therapist and or psychologist and setting boundaries. No one wants to deal with Daddy’s Lil’ “Ghou”rl aka an evil spirit suffering from Daddy Issues.
The Art of Losing
The Art of Losing
Saturday. November 26th, 2022
Growing up we’d call those who couldn’t accept defeat, “Sore Losers!” Everyone in life experiences loss and we’ve all experienced the feeling of disappointment associated with loss. However, there are those who become sullen and broken by possessing. Then there are those, as the saying goes, “Refuse to lose face.” Some people can’t accept loss and must win at all costs and are usually motivated by power, by authority and by the desire for status to the point of having serious issues managing their anger and turns to vengefulness.
In the news there’s been many violent acts of those who perceived themselves as taking a loss. For instance, a former Walmart employee who shot 6 dead and injured 18 customers. Then there’s the boyfriend who shot five family members of his girlfriends. Then there’s the young man attending Virginia tech who came back to campus to shoot his fellow teammates. Then there’s the woman who shot and killed another woman over her cheating husband. Then there’s the young lady who was attractive and well-known braider and financially successful set up and murdered by her own friends. In all of these scenarios these vindictive individuals internalized a perceived loss to the point of not having self-control.
In life, there are no guarantees, and we must learn to detach. Detachment means disconnecting from things that are of less importance, in order to accomplish the heights of what we as human can achieve. Meaning you can achieve more by detaching yourself from the things that control your emotions and self-motivation to a certain extent by taking a step back. Even emotionally, we are taught to experience our emotions in a healthy way but not to internalize them to the point of debilitation.
It’s not attachments that should make us happy. We can let go when life changes and still feel blissful, peaceful, and free.
As children we experience various types of loss and here is where coping skills should be developed regulating feelings of injustice and self-control. Over the course of their life toxic characteristics like jealousy, insecurities, and negative thoughts develop and fester. Eventually compounding those characteristics to a lack of empathy and difficulty managing emotions. Feelings of inadequacy induce pain in the brain when they feel attacked, mistreated or socially rejected. These individuals have high neuroticism and experience continued anger and hostility and will seek to avenge the perceived loss as a betrayal. In the first few moments an avenging act may feel rewarding in the brain, psychological scientists have found that instead of quenching hostility, revenge prolongs the unpleasantness of the original offense. Instead of delivering justice, revenge often creates only a cycle of retaliation. For the mature minded this type of behavior is Mental as hell!
Often what is not mentally corrected in childhood may turn in to Petulant BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder). This subtype personality disorder fluctuates between outbursts of explosive anger and feelings of being unworthy or unloved. They have a strong need to manipulate or control others, and they become very possessive, which results in extreme dissatisfaction in their relationships. Over time life for these type of people becomes unbearable due to The law of karma. The karmic universal system that is based on the concept of cause and effect and physics states that every action produces an equal reaction. The law of karma works on the same principle. Positive karma encourages progress of the soul, and negative karma hinders the progress of the soul. Eventually we’ll have a population of toxic adults who refuse to accept that Revenge proves its own executioner.” “Often those that criticise others reveal what he himself lacks.” “Not forgiving is like drinking rat poison and then waiting for the rat to die.”
Losing is an Art. Ever notice the best fighters, warriors, engineers, scientists and philosophers have all taken losses! Scrappin theories and methodologies left and right in order to develop the perfect formulas. It is how one looses with grace that determines their trajectory in life. Loosing also builds character and humility that they themselves are equally humbled by winner’s. In short, we need to teach our youth the art of loosing. This is why so many young men run and women grab guns or gang up on others and have angry outburst, they have no moral compass nor consequences in accepting that every action doesn’t need a reaction and a loss doesn’t determine your overall strength and character.
I wish we’d stop all the upholding of our youth when they’re in the wrong and giving everyone inclusive trophies. We need to allow healthy competitiveness to positively develop endurance, strength and good character. Iron sharpens iron…meaning “one person sharpens another” -Proverbs 27:17! Listen, in order to make yourself better, there is a mutual benefit making others better through mentorship, followership, and leading. Just remember that next time you can’t take a loss, evaluate whether you have the requisites to compete or be considered. Ask yaself what exactly you are losing and is it’s worth it? Can you sustain mentally if defeated? Do the work, self-assess and always think before reacting.
Sexually Awake or Asleep
Sexually Awake or Asleep
Friday, December 2nd, 2022
Cised af receiving an email for a discount on Rihanna’s Savage Fenty Lingerie line promoting it’s Black Friday & Cyber Monday sell so I clicked on it. I thought the yoga pants and sports bra tops were cute while imagining how it’d fit and hug all my curves being petite and all. Then I went on to notice on the website that she’d used a variety of body types and genders and I began to think hmm, I could order something sexy to wear but I wouldn’t fully fill up a 'B' cup in most corsets and bra type tops. Then I switched phone apps to navigate to my IG feed. First thing I saw was ass and titties, asssss and titties, sing it with me sike but for real ass and titties were EVERYWHERE! I’m talking about the gay men and majority of the women that’s when it struck me. The world is obsessed with sex! There’s the saying "Sex Sells" and with the advent of Fans Only, Cash App and various social media platforms I began to wonder how can anyone be in a monogamous relationshit? (SN: I call them that because i've yet to have experienced one with honesty, transparency, loyalty and as a byproduct love)! Any way, how does this overly sexualized world affect your sexual Awakening?
I mean personally am not easily aroused nor enticed. Being petite, I’d never really embraced from the physical aspect of myself to the point of sexual confidence. I have always been a sapiosexual and relied on my brain rather than looks or what i could offer sexually. Unfortunately, men are visual creatures for instance heels help elongate the leg and widen the hips. The more curves the marrier lol, science states a curvature of 45.5 degrees because it accentuates their posterior, making it appear bigger and waist-to-hip ratio smaller. Then there’s saying, “Tall, dark, and handsome “which for a lot of women height is ideal and a deal breaker. A study showed that a man’s leg-body ratios slightly above them is associated with high socioeconomic status, good nutrition, and developmental stability supposedly lol!
Seems like everywhere I look there’s sex. Hell, Coi Leray is petite and didn’t pick up mainstream fandom until she showed more skin and ass! With the ability to reach women who have plastic surgery and libido’s driven by immediate gratification and money. Our society has sensationalized SEX! The media and social media perpetually feeding our minds sexual images, behaviors, public and personal financial agendas portrayals, reinforce a relatively consistent set of sexual and relationship norms, and rarely depicts sexually responsible models. Consistent mental programing fuels hypersexuality and is defined as an increased need or pressure for sexual gratification and a symptom of mania, including decreased inhibitions or a need for "forbidden" sex. Think about that…”Forbidden Sex” and as I stated previously the male sexual fluidity has increased over the last decade. Did you know hypersexuality is listed as one of the diagnostic criteria for bipolar disorder, so it's a common part of bipolar disorder. BIPOLAR DISORDER! Yes, you read that right!
In life we all eventual discover our sexual self and can occur at any time and at any age. I like to consider a “Sexual Awakening” as becoming aware your body and sexual kinks as continuous process that starts typically in early adolescence and continues into late adulthood. In the bible Onan, son of Judah, who "spilled" his seed "on the ground” called Onanism was punished for masturbating in Gen. 38, 7–10.
So, what exactly is happening in the body that leads to these sexual awakenings? Between hormones in adolescents to as an adult the limbic system regulating arousal through physical sensation, seeing sensual content, or sexual fantasies releasing serotonin and cortisol. Once we experience the first phase of the sexual response cycle (SRC) you’ll forever chase that high. For some when your spirit is aligned some experience a Kundalini Awakening which occurs when there are sudden changes in your body, mind, and spirit leading to a gradual spiritual transformation a state you attain when you start changing from within. As we mature in your life your perception changes and so do your feelings. Eventually the act of sex encompasses our values, attitudes, feelings, interactions, behaviors, and the necessity of procreation.
Once we comprehend and become self-aware sex will no longer control attitudes, feelings, and values to detriment and self-validation. In conclusion, you must be mentally strong enough to recognize addictive behaviors and hypersexuality free yourself from the matrix that is programing us mentally. Only then can we make healthy connections and understand the sanctity of the act of sex. I’ve never been hypersexual, giving time between partners/relationships having four partners in six years and abstaining over the last 13 months and I feel the most mental clarity i’ve ever had in my life!

Pay Me No Mind
Pay Me No Mind
Monday, December 5th, 2022
Reminiscing back to September 11, 2001 listening to The Blueprint Album, I was scheduled to ship out to the Army in seven months. I could hear the lyrics play, “You not feeling me, fine. It costs you nothing, pay me no mind...”— Jay-Z I remember when this song came out, I was working at Shirley’s Barbershop braiding hair and sewing in weaves making about $400 or more a day too! Just as that memory faded, I received a notification through Monster.com considering my resume so I went to share this job with a friend who was looking for one only to realize the robust workload AND need for 100% accuracy’s stark contrast to the pay offered $18-19.23 which averages of $1,152.00 after taxes bi-weekly before taxes and even less if electing benefits. The average rent in Prince George’s County is $1,738 which most renters require three times the rent to be approved.
PG County is right outside of DC and has just as much crime as DC does. Statistically the job market and economy has been so unpredictable 44% of employed US Citizens tend to only stay at a job for 1-2 years and only 37% 3-4 years. The days of retiring from a company, organization or agency has changed, we’re investing, rolling over 401k’s and IRA’s. Now back to this administrative job role…let’s dissect this quick, the average Prince George's County Administrative Assistant yearly pay in Maryland is $79,894. Washington DC has the Highest rate of remote work at 6.1% to include Prince George’s County which transportation and fringe benefits don’t seem to be factored into the wage offered. Then there’s the issue of safety to, from and around the workplace; Forest Heights violent crime is 16.1 (the US average is 22.7).
The news is currently advocating for Railroad Employee Time Off and Unions have significantly reduced in numbers due to outsourcing work for cheaper labor internationally. Many employers don’t even consider the regular life hurdles that most people with low to medium income encounter that effects the employees daily from their home life or living check to check with and without dependents. Then there’s the mental wherewithal of knowing your job is not guaranteed. Aside from low pay, the cost of living has increased steadily with an inflation rate of 5.4% this year. I know a lot of us citizens are not happy about this financial squat walk we’ve had to endure several recessions since 2000. I couldn’t help but to feel the need to email the job poster back about this role and the above statistics because just like they want a well-versed performing employee, the exchange should be mutually beneficial.
So, I suggested the description needing to be rewritten and appropriate pay considered. Hopefully, the council will consider this statistical data, reconvene, and obligate appropriate funding for the administrative role. Maybe more employers will survey employees to create a better work life balance in career roles that offer growth and longevity. So, I guess Jay was right, many have adapted the mindset of “You not feeling me, fine. It costs you nothing, pay me no mind...” it’s better to be carefree than to hold on to mental stress over not being enough or paid what your worth. In this world you have to steadily increase your skill set and make yourself marketable with decent communication skills. Deuces…im out!

As we usher in the New Year I want to start off by saying thank you for joining me Collective (some may ask what’s a collective, involving all members of a group or distinct from of individuals). The time has come to address the collective and what I as a conveyer and direct conduit of the Christ Conscious (a consciousness of spiritual awareness on the same level of spirituality as Yeshua. For those that don’t believe in Yeshua you can liken it to a mystical Consciousness that refers to a spiritually evolved state of being full of spiritual enlightenment that humans can achieve on their own. For some of us we carry a genetic chromosome that from birth carry an innate ability to experience hard times and experiences making us wise and loving, and eventually becoming one with all that exists in a state of mind that all Light workers seek to attain during their spiritual journey to Oneness with God. Some people access and trigger their own self awareness known as a spiritual awakening that changes the essence of who you are, beliefs, lifestyle and even your diet.
You see through various behaviors many of you are cut off from God’s voice and it doesn’t matter how religious you are either. Well, how can some be cut off from God’s voice, simple for some your vibrational frequency which our spiritual aura is about 700 feet in circumference starting at your spinal column and is extremely low which then affects anything within that forcefield. I mean just look at the dead plants in your space or the piles of dirty clothes and trash around your living space and the cleanliness of your vehicle…. dark energy gathers there says Feng Shui. The five elements of feng shui (earth, metal, water, wood, and fire) are interrelated phases in life that work together to create a complete system so by feng shuing your home, you balance these five elements which helps to balance your chakra’s.
I mean think about it messy room and several other criteria can be a sign of depression or other psychological issues which means your circadian rhythm is blocked. Some call it calcified because eating certain foods creates plaque in the arteries and the seat of your soul. The seat of the soul is your pineal gland which is known to be connected to our intuition (God’s voice). Since we’re created in “his image “Man as in “hue-man” color of man “myelinated” having a darker hue/color to their skin. Humans who possess melanin in their skin of widespread species of primate, characterized by bipedalism and exceptional cognitive skills due to a large and complex brain. The term man and words derived from it can designate any or even all humans regardless of their sex or age. In traditional usage, man itself refers to the species of humanity.…
Now some of you are spiritually ill and manifesting physical ailments because of it. Some of you were born damned and don’t even know it. It is our individual responsibility to heal within us the trauma that made you mentally, physically, and spiritually. Some of you have taken oaths and vows to uphold negative belief systems and allegiance to devilment.
You see there’s various classifications of demons from mythological, occult, folklore, religious ritualistic, with elemental forms, astrological ties and parallels to angelic hierarchy but ultimately many of you are associated by sin, disease and other calamities. Some of you are out here dating the Seven Princes of of Hell and wonder why ya going through hell? Lucifer and pride, Beelzebub and gluttony, Satan and wrath, Abdon and sloth, Mammon and greed, Belphegor and envy and Asmodeus and lust which also represent the seven deadly sins. Then you have your demons of fate known as Laplacia and there’s Enki the Kind of the Demon world and Muzan the oldest demon. There are familiars’ familiar spirits of cunning individuals who have passed, there are druids which is a nocturnal spirit and some of you are Cambions, the offspring of a succubus and an incubus i.e. human demon hybrids. So now we identify that we are in a spiritual war which I used to think my elders were nuts when they said that. But no, its true! In every country in every religion the stories and struggles are the same yet one thing that’s been consistent are the prophets, psychics, theologist and leaders over the years and their contributions to humanity as their lives are usually one of extraordinary change and challenges.
In closing Collective, you have to stay spiritually disciplined because this world is becoming more and more wicked by the day from the unhinged behaviors towards one another in our homes and communities, lacking integrity, empathy and the ability to heal Yourselves mentally and emotionally.

So here I am in front of my laptop once again off my Carrie Bradshaw shit! Assaults, thefts, homicides, political ties, adultery, sexual fluidity and social hierarchy has dubbed D.C. the “New Sin City.” Washington, DC home to the Capitol of the United States and the central nucleus of the most powerful military and influential global economy in the world. The District of Columbia has thee highest crime rate in America with 1 out of every 17 people being a victim of a crime. I’ve always referred to DC as “Crab City,” which I personally coined because not only are local Maryland Blue Crabs a native food staple, but this city is also a cutthroat place full of envy, jealousy, backdooring and herd mentality social groups (the tendency to cultivate behavior or beliefs to conform to those of the group to which they belong). The recipe for this insidious environment of course influences one’s social class, income brackets, business affiliations, career, and social status.
What is the cause of the influential affluence in a city that’s been recently dubbed “The New Sin City.” Many natives often reminisce on memories of their past influenced by experiences the political elites and local hood legends of the city’s business transactions, criminal doings, business ties and scenes, all under the cover of the city’s backdrop. Who are these people rumored to exist? A large majority have interests in and are a part of DC’s Criminal Network consisting of an estimated 37 states, over 120 Cities and countless affiliates some large and some as small as what DC natives refer to as “Clicks,” (native lingo for gang affiliated) tied to local crime network. The Streets, the Projects and impoverished Neighborhoods plagued by low income led to poverty, crime, and drug distribution over the years.
Exploring the backdrop of DC, many of the OG’s of the reign of DC’s long standing Drug & Crime network giving rise to secret societies and affiliations established in DC’s former federal prison. Commissioned by President Roosevelt, one of the nation’s most notorious prisons formerly known as Lorton Reformatory opened in 1910 in Lorton, Virginia. The idea was to reform criminals with short sentences while allowing them to learn trades and embracing “A Hard Day’s Work” from farming, metal work, to brick masonry and eventually becoming co-ed. By 1919 the 19th amendment (side note do you see those angel numbers) after a women’s hunger strike aided in the right for women to vote. In 2001 DC shut down their Federal Prison now more than 21 years ago, DC inmates were sent to Federal Prisons nationwide, giving rise to a larger network of Organized Crime Organizations. Many of whom returned to DC and ran small lucrative criminal networks and affiliates intertwined at various levels between cops, lawyers, judges, realtor, finance managers, drug dealers, escorts, and bankers!
We went from the War on Drugs to Say No to Drugs as Crack Cocaine entered the Nations Lexicon DC was already struggling from all the convenient, cheap drugs on every corner leaving behind pockets of poverty. By 1989, President Bush stated “This is the capital of the United States of America, we have to have standards here that are reflective of the country as a whole, that this is not some third-world country.” “This place was the epicenter,” said one DC Native. Doubling in Crime, Emergency Room Visits and while ravaging families the Drug War waged on aiding in increased prostitution, mental health and addiction crisis, theft and homicide taking mothers and fathers from families leaving children displaced. DC quickly became a place without a lot of options affecting the mentality of its residents. As the lock up rates increased so did the up rise of absent fathers, threatening the elimination of the minority middle class. With the promise of easy money and the illusion of wealth, many misguided young men turned to selling drugs. By the late 90’s and early 2000’s most men had spent time in jail or prison and new social class of young men emerged
As DC entered the 21st Century with an increase in transplant citizens, relocates to DC bringing their eclecticism and culture from nations all over the world and nation. In the age of technology and social media, networking and money schemes have risen. Due to changes, difference in condition, amount, and levels of sexual responsiveness due to situational, interpersonal, and contextual influences, over the last decade male sexual fluidity has increase 15% and 7.9% with women over the past 20 years. 20% of married couples are likely to encounter infidelity.
Now consider the fact that 70% of couples (unmarried) cheat at some point in the relationship and 20% of married couples have dealt with cheating. Basically, with all the influences around I wonder why are people so co-dependent that even with these statistics they choose to be in relationships instead of alone since the chief complaint was an unhappiness in physical and emotional relations. Today at the height of hypersexuality and ritualistic behaviors and fast money at the tip of one’s finger. It can easily be said that Washington, DC has been feted as the new Sin-City feted with a story as political, cut-throat, gangster, sexy, wild, and befitting as Las Vegas, Nevada. With the new attractions like; hotels, casinos, bars, entertainment venues, political ties to the local business & realty investments, social and physical city reshaping one may easy reference the similarities in the history of Las Vegas Mafia roots. Bugsy Siegel, a founding member of Murder Inc., an organized crime group that operated from 1929 to 1941 that acted as the strong arm of the Italian American Mafia, Jewish Mob, and other closely connected organized crime groups in New York City and elsewhere.
Who would better know what and who, Las Vegas would attract given that the Mafia was known to have exquisite taste, a desire for opulence, high risk gambling and a thirst for sensual and exotic women. Siegel, an investor in The Northern Club and El Cortez hotel and casinos in Las Vegas. Siegel invested the mob money to grow Las Vegas casino-hotels, to control what was known as “The race wires,” something he had also done for the mob while in southern California. Due to the mob ties and the various Capo’s within the organizations displeasure in Siegel’s management of investment fund and ultimately, he was murdered. News reports state that 20 minutes after he was killed, a group of executives walked into the Hotel & Casino known as the Flamingo and said they were now in charge.
Thank you for taking a read of my oracle recollections as a native Washingtonian with this quick history lesson in both politics and street politics in Washington, DC with an overcast of greed, ego, crime, and damn near contagious sexual aberrancies. Until next time….stay dangerous lol! Hope you enjoyed the gems.
Roll those loaded dice!
Bring on the dancing girls and put the champagne on ice.
[Chorus] I'm goin' in! To Sin City, im gonna win!
In sin city, where the lights are bright!
Do the town tonight, I wanna win!
