Spiraling From Past Trauma: Iyanla Tried to Fix Producer "Memphitz's" Life

Mickey “Memphitz” Wright
By Brenda Alexander

Say what you want about Iyanla Vanzant and what many consider her style of life coaching to be unconventional and exploitative; but, one thing she’s never wrong about is the hindrance unresolved traumas will have on your life. Case in point: Mickey “Memphitz” Wright.

When I saw the preview for Memphitz appearance on the show, I thought to myself: He’s about to act a damn fool. Thankfully, I was wrong...


The Discomfort is Your Miracle in Disguise

The discomfort is the shift. It’s your miracle in disguise.


Remember When You Wanted What You Currently Have? #BeHerNow

Nikki Walton
Think of something you’ve been trying to manifest... something you want BAD. See it in your mind’s eye. Now, think of a thing or experience you used to want, but now have. See it in your mind’s eye.

Tell It Tuesday: Pride Will Bring You Low, But Being Humble Takes You Higher

Kenan Thompson as LeVar Ball on SNL
By Ta-ning Connai

Egotist. Sexist. Obnoxious. Who knew that LaVar Ball and Trump had so much in common?! There's a Twitter War going on between them and they've both achieved buffoonery status being portrayed on Saturday Night Live. Kenan Thompson brought the house down yet again recently taking his parodied version of the Ball family mascot to TNT’s Inside The NBA. Even Thompson couldn't refrain from rolling on the floor with laughter, but in real life, prideful arrogance just ain't funny.

Tell It Tuesday: Between a Rock & a Hard Place? Here's How to Get Away!

20th anniversary of Lenny Kravitz's hit 'Fly Away' 
By Ta-ning Connai

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of a song that broke down barriers between Rock and R&B simply by coining a popular lyric we've all sang at least once or twice in our lives. Lenny Kravitz is the King of Cool and when he brazenly strung his guitar while chanting “I want to get away” back in 1998, he had no idea that both Headbangers and Hip-Hop Heads alike would give homage to the words from Fly Away in over 50+ songs (whew, I literally got tired of counting). And in 2010, he even stumbled upon the Voices of Praise Choir belting out a churchy version on the streets of New Orleans! No, he didn't exactly invent the term, but he sure as heck made it his own. Lenny, you da man!

What about you? Ever feel like getting away? No, I don't mean like a vacay getaway, although that would be nice. I'm talking about getting away from the things that hold you hostage. If I'm talking to you, just keep on listening, I wanna help you solve that problem...

Instead of Over Praising Your Kids Try Adopting THIS Game Changing Mindset

By Erickka Sy SavanΓ©

My 6 year-old daughter put on an impromptu talent show with some of her dolls. Princess Tiana, Ariel, the redhead from the movie Brave and Mulan sang and danced together like any girl group who had gotten together for the first time with no rehearsal. After about 10 minutes, I thanked her, and told her that it needed some work. “Think about how you can make it better and try it again,” I said enthusiastically. Her mood shifted immediately, and I could see she was disappointed. When I asked what was wrong she wouldn’t say.

"Listen, it was a good show, especially for a first try, but I know you can make it even better. Just try.” I don’t’ know if she heard me.

9 Signs You're Doing Better Than You Think You Are

By Ruu Hawkins

We all enter seasons in our lives where we feel like everything is coming to a head – life just won't let up. I, for one, experience this period of “WTF" every few years, or so. Most recently – last May to be exact – I had firmly set my feet back on the ground (financially) following a drought of sorts due to job loss, followed by inconsistent freelance work, and countless financial emergencies, which drained my life savings.

Following a move from the west coast to the east coast – I was now surrounded by family and friends – a longing I had carried for several years prior, as a young single mother. My daughters were adjusting nicely. I felt as though the storm was over. Only, within eight months of returning to my hometown life knocking at my door was a fresh basket of lemons. Once more, I was faced with uncertainty as both a mother and provider, after receiving a pay cut of 50 percent – with but a week's notice.


You are Already, HER.

As you read these words, you realize that the hands that are holding this phone, your hands, belong to HER.

You’re remembering now... and it’s like you cut the light back on! You are HER, already!

You feel HER face smiling now, her shoulders relaxing down from HER ears, HER breath deepening. You notice a go(o)d feeling in HER body— peace, relief, relaxation or joy. In this moment, all of your limitations from the past and therefore, your limited future, are gone. You can feel HER future, now, and it’s BRIGHT af!


Thank You, D.C.! #BeHerNowWorkshop

Last night was amazing! Thank you D.C. for coming out (in the snow ❄️ ) to my first #BeHerNow Workshop. Thank you for being open to the experience. Thank you for speaking your truth. Thank you for allowing me to speak mine. The energy in the room was absolutely powerful and I hope you’re loving and living from that presence today. I love you all and can’t wait to do it again!


How to Instantly Level Up.

The instant you consciously choose to shift from feeling like yourself to feeling like yourSELF, your whole life trajectory changes. You level up.

Let’s do it together, right now. Notice your breath. In. Out. Nice! Smile, 😊 BIGGER πŸ˜† Now, listen for the silence. Keep smiling. Don’t think about it, just listen. Cock that left ear and listen for the silence that’s under all the thoughts. Listen like you’re listening to see if you hear the baby stirring in the other room. Listen like it’s after 1am and you’re waiting to see when Bae is gonna try to creep in after a night out. Listen to the silence and the space that allows all the other noises to be. Listen for the silence, listen to the space— it’s in you and all around you. That’s where the joy is. And you’re feeling it now— subtly, in your chest as you stay aware of your smile. You feel the peace, the joy in the silence as you breathe in and out. It’s getting stronger. You’re breathing in the joy. You feel the joy as the silence. That joy you’re feeling right now, it’s always here! It’s you. This is HER. You’re being HER, now.


The Only Choice That Matters.

Today, there’s only one choice that matters. You have to stay conscious enough to choose your ‘go(o)d vibe’ over your ‘shook vibe’, regardless of circumstances.

Can you stand firm in your go(o)d feels—unbothered, unshook, smiling and at peace? Or are you gonna seemingly give ‘them’, the power to upset you again, to knock you off balance?


You are JOY, being human!

Today, you will remember what’s important. You will remember that you have a choice.


The Upgrade.

I see you, guuuhhlll! Got that hair popping, I like your lippie too! πŸ’„ Is it new? Nah? Your energy ain’t either, apparently. Look at you— just scrolling, serving resting bitch face and reading this with that same old, played vibe from yesterday. It’s the same energy you’ve been offering for a minute now... and you wonder why not much around you has changed for the better. You’ve been hoping it’ll change, praying everyday for change, maybe even affirming and expecting it to change cause you read a few books on the #lawofattraction. But trust me, you will never live the monumental changes you’re seeking unless you first change the way you’re feeling, the way you’re BEING right now. You have to upgrade your energy if you want to experience a different and doper slice of creation. I sound like a broken record and I will continue until you shift out of your familiar way of being you. The way you feel right now feels like YOU, but it isn’t... you’ve just practiced it for a while. Let’s practice something else.
