“Light that Feels like Love...”

Mondays are the happening thing with Nikki Walton in her meditation/book club Zoom group at 6:30pm. However, what I love the most about this group is that you can alway catch the replays if you are unable to attend the live recording. In order to enjoy some of this heat, you have to join her mailing list. GET YOUR LIFE and click ​here​ for all of the G(o)odness. 

How I Stood my Ground... This Week and Beyond!



by Akilah Peynado of www.akilahpeynado.com

I like to take a very rounded approach to life; but this did not come easily. I used to think and believe that in order for me to be a spiritual person, I had to be extremely pious, “set-apart”, sullen and you can add whatever adjective you think is necessary for consider yourself as someone who is given to the things of God. After much growth, and many trials, and lessons, I learned that I can be exactly who I am authentically and still be a lover of things pertaining to the soul. With that said, please know that this place I am in right now in my life is not maintained by only my pretty looks (I am very beautiful just in case you didn't know!); but by a series of consistent efforts on a regular basis.

"Because you DESERVE to, that’s why!"



by Akilah Peynado of www.akilahpeynado.com

I’m calling all of my fellow Black women into the auditorium for a quick announcement with my bullhorn in my hand. I am going to say this once and for all: “Black Women it is okay to LUXURIATE”! Yes you read that correctly. I do not know about you; but, growing up in the Caribbean/traditional church community I grew up in, it was not common to see women enjoying- without guilt- the finer things in life. There was a lot of “hmm, that would be nice; but, we cannot afford it.” Or, the ever so and still very present, “Oh I can do it myself.” Even worse if a Black woman took too much care of herself, she would be labeled as “siddity” or “bougie” or in some cases “acting white”. Unfortunately this narrative continues to move throughout some conversations that happen in our society today.

Happy Friyayyy, chica!

I'm messaging you today because no matter if you're a Stay-at-Home Mom, or a CEO, or both (!!!), you're feeling the joy of Friday. So I'm just popping in to remind you that this relief you're experiencing, this subtly joyful anticipation for the relaxation ahead... it was present on Tuesday, too. It was 'here' on Monday. This peace... this happiness is always, ALWAYS available to you. But you only allow yourself to feel it on the weekend, on payday, on vacay, during that first sip of coffee or wine at the airport! But here's the thing-- those events and things aren't causing the joy. The joy is NOW, here, always. Grace is here, NOW. RELAX.

Having a Rough Day? Try This.

Leave a ❤️in the comments if you’re thankful for the small (in my case!) things!

Stay aware of inner Love for the rest of the night! It’s ever-present, and always accessible, even when anger, fear, or anxiety have come to visit. Your job as Consciousness isn’t to stop the ‘negative’ feels, or change them into ‘positive’ ones, but to introduce even 1% of this divine, inherent Love into every situation.
