SOLAR ECLIPSE TRIGGERS SEISMIC SHIFT FOR SPIRITUALITY, CREATIVITY, AND PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION

By ELIZABETH

ECLIPSE: a loss of significance, power, or prominence in relation to another person or thing.

Today, anything that has held me back in the past is undergoing a radical loss of significance, power, or prominence in relation to the beautiful, badass butterfly who is bursting out of the chrysalis whose confining darkness prepares it to soar to immeasurable heights.

I have been evaluating my strengths and weaknesses, and writing out a new version of how I’d rather be.  I am using the PowerJournal techniques that I devised and will soon begin teaching with Catherine.  I have been looking in the proverbial mirror to critique what’s working and what’s not in the way I spend the precious moments of this lifetime.  And the revelations reflecting back at me, in addition to deep meditation, are helping me strategize my infinite potential on every level.

MAGIC MOMENTS MAKE LIFE SPARKLE

“…the sun sparkled on the light chop of waves as if God had sprinkled a million diamonds over Lake St. Clair.”

—   Husbands, Incorporated by Elizabeth Ann Atkins

By ELIZABETH 

This morning, that image reflected back at me when I stopped during a bike ride to meditate and pray beside the lake.

For long, amazing moments, I marveled at the sun sparkling on the water, which danced to the tune of a gentle breeze and caressed the jagged rocks.  My gaze followed the trail of sparkles all the way to the edge of the world, where the sun was making a silvery puddle on the horizon.

DANCING TO THE TUNE OF SUMMER SUNSHINE BLISS

By ELIZABETH

A baby bunny... a male and female cardinal... a big white cat... a chipmunk... a blue jay.  

All these friendly critters fluttered and scampered around me while doing yoga in the warm summer sunshine.

Mother Nature provided the soundtrack of chirping birds, and the soft breeze rustling in the treetops, along with my favorite Bill Withers song, Steppin' Right Along.  It’s the most soul-stirring rendition of The Lord’s Prayer — and it made me twirl in a joyful dance all by my damn self.

CELEBRATE YOURSELF WITH DINNER FOR ONE

By ELIZABETH 

I’m working really hard on my soon-to-be-published spiritual book:  God’s Answer Is Know.   

The basic message is that we all have God’s power within us, and with that power, we are capable of anything.

This message is really important because we live in a world that teaches us to seek everything outside of ourselves.  That can lead to feelings of inadequacy and lack.  Society also programs us to believe that we’re not complete or truly happy without the company of others, especially in the romantic sense.

DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING II

A woman with tight, curly gray hair, wearing a white eyelet blouse and a blue handkerchief-print skirt positioned herself on the concrete dance floor just below the outdoor stage. The MC introduced the opening act on the final day of the annual blues festival. A few wanna-be dancers lingered nearby. The majority of the crowd sat comfortably in tent-chairs.

The blues harmonica started, then the guitar, and then one guy started wailing my-baby-done-left-me vocals.

BROTHERS AND THERAPY

By ALLEN ALLENSWORTH IV

Guest Blogger

People respond to adversity in a lot of ways. Some people try to find themselves. Others turn to God. Still others turn to sex, drugs, and/or rock and roll. If you’re a black man, you have a lot of options, but finding yourself isn’t one of them. Especially if it means going to therapy. Black men may go to church or the titty bar, but we don’t go to therapy.  I don’t mean court-ordered counseling or your cousin over a drink (probably at the titty bar). I don’t mean couple’s counseling. I mean one-on-one with a clinically trained, board certified, MD-having, drug-prescribing psychiatrist.

GRATITUDE IS OUR SAVING GRACE

by ELIZABETH 

Yesterday, something happened that knocked me off center.  It triggered a vicious whirlpool of worries that sucked at my energy, my peace, my joy, my concentration.

This was infuriating because I wanted to spend the entire day writing with turbo-charged mental and physical stamina.

But suddenly all I wanted to do was go to sleep.

Or cry.

“You have to send love to the situation,” Catherine said.  “Negativity only makes it worse.  Just concentrate on sending positive energy to resolve it.”

She was telling me what I already knew — and do — most of the time.

UNIVERSE AFFIRMS THAT A POT OF GOLD AWAITS YOUR PASSIONATE PURSUIT OF LIFE PURPOSE

by ELIZABETH

Sometimes you just KNOW when the universe is speaking directly to you!

Loudly.

And clearly.

That just happened for these two sisters who are passionately pursuing our life purpose by writing and publishing books.

“This is beautiful!” I exclaimed after Catherine texted a photo of the interior page design in her first novel, Veronica, I Heard Your Mom's is Black.

MEDITATION IS A MAGICAL ELIXIR FOR PEACE, SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT, CREATIVITY, BETTER HEALTH, AND MUCH MORE

by ELIZABETH

My brain was a cyclone, spinning over too many things at once. 

Tension gripped my muscles.

So, as I do most days, I did yoga in my living room — usually The Five Tibetans or a Kundalini routine with Maya Fiennes.

Yoga opens the chakras, boosts intuition, and elevates me to high-frequency channels to crystal-clear meditation. 

So, after the exhilarating, body-soothing movements of yoga, I lay on the couch under a plush blanket, cover my eyes, listen to sonic driver drumming music, and slip into a theta brainwave state.
