The Year....Reflection...

The year of recuperation.. digesting and multi tasking the faults of myself and others..
I have won.. but have I with the amount of stuff just to erase a small fact.. that I am the cause of such says if u no better than u do better but better has to be learned first...there's a thirst ..c be illuminated from this game we call LIFE..

The year my weary body may seem strong on the perky wonderfulness and the fullness of my hips... dance like tempting shadows.. on paved walls.. but inside there is a stall... filled with names..numbers.places and things..talking walls..dirty water..with tissue on the floor..people have come and gone..sometimes felt used and then if that loved at all.

The year these eyes seen some great..unique pieces of work.. have the eyes deceived me to no end.. have my heart been mended back together..glue or tape..and to fall apart again.. what is true.. what is this that we all search for.. can we understand it if it was right in front of our faces or are we so sense of anything without a big sign.. some glitter.. some noise..some illusion.. some twinkle..some score..

The year I meet the spirits through the same gate..walked with them..talked to them..moved..danced..sang..wrote with them..nice to know we r not alone in this unbalanced reality..we run to one side..stay take it all in to get bored and move to the other side.. it becomes an extreme..never taught to stay in the middle..wondering why the cards lay where they must..emotional foolishness with no full inner standing of where to place the energy.. the cycle continues

The year we attempted to clean out our....what u call the name of starting over.. but not knowing where to begin.. what is the root of the problem.. lie to in complete denial..but is it denial if its not known that something is wrong..or is it us that project the wrong doings of others because of our wrong doings...taming beast of what..first to find out it was not the other persons doing the bidding for our internal demise..let it be we say..then we die.. to come back and start all over again..and again...again..til bliss has its hands on us..confusion..inner turmoil ..inner desire to be free..of what..or is that an illusion too..?

or is it just this year..? maybe next yr we will have an answer to that which lies within.

The Encounter(The Awakener)

She spoke of my secrets, bold, stories yet to be told…

She spoke of my disposition and the consequences of giving up on life

She spoke of my fears…she spoke of my strengths….she spoke of me.

And the encounter was as real and as captivating and as consuming

As life in this present moment. She confirmed my aspirations….she…

Encouraged, admonished, appealed and empowered…

She wept with me….held me in her feminine bosom of power and told me to let go.

Allow life to take its course…allow God, the universe and the divine feminine energy

To spoil me. Because, ultimately, I deserve it. She saw my baby. A girl….she’s coming.

She saw my career, my passions, my gifts…she saw who I really was…and she said ,

“This woman sitting before me is not who you really are, your light is dim, your fuel is low….but this isn’t who you are, you have to come out of this, you’re gonna come out of this…. There is so much more to life within this season, choose to live, fight for your happiness, make yourself available for the unexpected ‘wowfactor’….you’re gonna make it! God will not let you drown! There is wealth, there is happiness, there is life in abundance on the other side of this…”

She stated that by the third month of next year, things will be in their perspective place in my life…..she spoke of my family. I need to go home. Not to stay. But I need to feel my family and I need them to feel me. I need to feel me…I need to feel what the real Kira feels like again….because this woman and this season has ran its course…..

She saw him, she said he’ll love me…he’ll adore me….better yet, he’ll know how to handle me…lol (Lord knows I need to be handled…)but there will be no fear or insecurity, there will be no intimidation….only support….solely love…and a ‘love that reflects how God loves me’. That statement in itself is a lot….whew! (Selah…..praise and meditation)

I have realized that I have got to do a better job reaching out to the people God has ordained to surround me in my life right now. My friends and my family….are there!...they are there…waiting for me to let them in… “just let them in Kira…and let yourself out. Forgive yourself. Love yourself. Embrace this Encounter.”

Unknown Reality

There are times

when looking into your eyes

I start to cry

cuz its a dream,

its all a dream,

that you are here

loving me

the way you are loving me,

cuz things like this

just don’t happen to me

and most days I feel unworthy

but here you are

and here I am

and this is real...isn’t it?

See, I’ve been thru these motions before

and I swore..

I would never open that door...again

but here you are..

and here I am..


almost fearful of..

how this could end

cuz I don’t want it to end

U introduced me..

to me..

loving all parts of me


the ins and outs

the ups and downs

u.. stayed here

by my side.

U befriended me

comforted me

in my midnight hour


Its funny cuz

right when I was saying

I’m done.

I’m taking a break..

I’m not looking anymore..

you appeared in my door

moving me mentally,

challenging me spiritually,

and loving me completely,

but it all feels like a dream

it does..

I go to sleep

and I pray that you stay

I pray that you are real

I pray you are true.

And when I wake up..

I thank God that it is you..

and that this is real

and that you are my reality

although .....

this feels just like a dream.

Lessons of Life's Recession....

Everybody knows that we are in one of the worst recessions since the 1980s, with 8% of Americans out of work, and 13% of African Americans without jobs. Not to mention those of us who are losing homes, businesses, having hours cut at work, or just having to stretch our funds even further than usual. It seems like every time you turn on the tv, it's more bad news. But through it all, even though times are very tough, I think some profound life lessons are being learned. Unfortunately, that aspect isn't being given as much attention in the media as statistics, finance-related suicides, etc.
Recently Iyanla Vanzant spoke at this year's annual State of the Black Union (I wish I could find a youtube clip of this, but there isn't one) and spoke some very powerful words about her own experience. In a talk about finance, she bravely told the audience that she herself had recently lost her home to foreclosure. She went on to say that although the experience was painful, it lead her to take a look at her life, and see areas "where I was wobbly and wishy-washy, and needed more strength". She also said that this experience made her much more appreciative of all that she did have. She focused on being thankful for her beautiful grandchildren, a healthy body and mind.
Her words really got me thinking about what lessons I've learned from these times. For me personally, I've always done everything fast. I was all for instant gratification, whether it was a job, a painting, or a move I was making. Everything was now. And if things didn't happen fast enough, I was on to the next thing. Abundance of resources and opportunities made this possible. It also meant I was able to take a lot of opportunities for granted and not see anything through to the end. So the lesson I was forced to learn was to SLOW DOWN. Everything that used to open up for me rapidly now moves at a snail's pace. I had to learn to let go and breathe, and be still and grounded within myself and wait for things to unfold. And within that time and space, I've begun to appreciate all I've overlooked. I've begun to put more time and effort into what I do. And when I'm frustrated and things just will not move, I've learned to appreciate all the little things that will: Brand new spring blossoms, baby calves learning to stand, turtles sunning themselves on a rock down in the creek. I'm beginning to connect more with what's real and true on this earth.

What I have learned is...
1. That my health is my wealth.
2. Living simple is not just about de-cluttering the home, but also the mind first.
3. It is time to be super resourceful and creative in how money is made.
4. It is testing my confidence as I have found out that I am attached to material concepts/ideas that have been driving me, but which are also harmful to who I am. I need to completely unattached to material in order to re-evaluate and move forward.
5. My family are a huge support, I appreciate that SO much now.
6. More than ever, I need to break out of any limitations that I have placed on my Self. Think BIGger!

So what I'd like to know from all of you is, have these tough economic times taught you any life lessons? Revealed a strength? Changed the way you look at things?

Some daysI could become birdsong.
Like the thing that unwinds
The morning from the night
And sings the tilt
Toward evening back again.
I could be desire
That takes shape inside breast
Pitched out in voice
Harmonious and sweet
Like syrup…
Some days,
I know how planets feel
When they know they’re about to die
The way stars ache
Before falling into themselves…
Some days,
I feel like something beautiful
Dissident almost,
Like the arc of his stance
Like movement under sheets
Invigorating like a silhouette
Against the paned glass,
Stilled in both body and thought.
Some days,
I long for some
Poetic astonishment
Of human understanding
In the line of his back.
When eyes open…
Feels like reading aged pages
Of a thousand books;
Fairy tales and politics alike
And I believed every word.
Some days,
My wild expressions
Express something other than
Love or hate;
A morbid sense of duty, maybe
Some days,
I have a look so real
You could build it.

(Self) Love in the Fast(ing) Lane

Considering a fast or cleanse to rev up your energy levels, release stored junk in your trunk, disarm your inner warrior of its angry liver complex? Consider this as well. The potency of a good cleanse is well-worth the investment, time and self love you put into it. That’s right, I said self love!

It’s the best of times and the worst of times, cleansing and fasting. It’s the best because you become extra discerning of what substances you take into your inner temple, your body, and it can be the worst of times, albeit momentarily, because the power of a true cleanse not only moves residue out of your intestines, it removes obstacles out of your life! And that means people, habits and thoughts that aren’t serving you. Fasting can be as simple as taking a day each week to enjoy only freshly prepared live juices. I recommend ones that are low in sugar and high on flavor, like spinach, green apple, celery, cucumber and lemon. Or give your body a rest from digesting by slurping up live young coconut water. Cleansing your insides is a process to systematically remove and release toxic build up out of your liver, gallbladder, intestines and other organs. Best to go well-prepared with excellent support and supplies that include fasting essentials to renew, rebuild and regenerate.

The energy, clarity, and vitality you’ll gain make this experiment a grand one. And be aware of your disposition before you start your routine.Take the time to prepare an environment for yourself that welcomes you to release, relax, and renew yourself. Talk about your desires with people who share your living space and with those in your intimate circles so that you are supported and then, prepare to flush the outdated blueprints of self and relationship down the composting toilet!

Your Health is Your Wealth!

Excerpts from, The Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav

I came to understand that what motivated these men was not Earthly prizes or the respect of colleagues, but that they put their souls and minds on something and reached the extraordinary place where the mind could no longer produce data of the type that they wanted, and they were in the territory of inspiration where their intuitions accelerated and they knew that there was something more than the realm of time and space and matter, something more than physical life. They knew it. They could not necessarily articulate this clearly because they were not equipped to talk about such things, but they felt it and their writings reflected it.

In other words, I came to understand that what motivated these men, and many others, was in fact something of great vision that comes from beyond the personality. Each of us is now being drawn, in one way or another, to that same great vision. It is more than a vision. It is an emerging force. It is the next step in our evolutionary journey. Humanity, the human species, is longing now to touch that force, to shed that which interferes with clear contact. Much of the difficulty in doing this lies in the fact that the vocabulary with which to address this new force, which is indeed the eternal force, is not yet born. In this moment and in this hour of human evolution this proper vocabulary and means of addressing that which longs to transcend religiosity and spirituality and assume the position of authentic power is longing to be born. We need to give that which we as a species are now touching consciously for the first time a vocabulary that is not clouded so that it can be identified clearly in the acts and judgments of the human race, so that it can be seen clearly, and not through veils of mystery or mysticism, but simply as the authentic power that moves the force fields of this Earth of ours.

Who among us is an expert on the human experience? We have only the gift of sharing perceptions that hopefully can help those on their journey. There is no such thing as an expert on the human experience. The human experience is an experience in movement and thought and form, and, in some cases, an experiment in movement and thought and form. The most that we can do is comment on the movement, the thought and the form, but those comments are of great value if they can help people to learn to move gracefully, to think clearly, to form -- like artists -- the matter of their lives.

We are in a time of deep change. We will move through this change more easily if we are able to see the road upon which we are traveling, our destination, and what it is that is in motion. I offer what is in this book as a window through which I have come to see life. I offer this window to you, but I do not say that it is necessary that you accept it. There are so many ways to wisdom and to the heart. This is our greatest richness, and the one that gives me the most joy.

We have much to do together.

Let us do it in wisdom and love and joy.

Let us make this the human experience.

All I Want...

All I want is peace of mind

someone to love me as much

as I love me.

someone to nuture, comfort and cover me

in my strengths and weaknesses.

All I want is peace of heart

someone to be gentle and

considerate with me...

someone to pursue me fervently make me feel wanted, appreciated

to make me feel as though love itself

was an understatement...and since God is love-

to make me feel God.

All I want is peace of spirit

to be encouraged, to be joyous-

to expect a miracle everyday-

to rejoice with them who rejoice!

and to be present in body and spirit

with them that grieve.

All I want is peace...

to rid my insecurities

to remind myself that I am beautiful

without anticipating others to tell me... find that safe place,

that place within me where I am secure,

where I have joy, where I am satisfied,

where I know I have exactly what

I want and deserve.

Monday, August 31, 2009

It is not loving to stay in place where you are happy sometimes and sad most of the time. It is not loving to convince yourself that it is okay to stay in a place where you are not loved, honored and valued the way your heart tells you- you deserve to be. It is not self loving, nor is it loving others involved, to allow yourself to be mentally, emotionally or physically abused in hope that things can, or will, get better.

When you participate in actions and activities that are not loving toward you, you are helping them do things that hurt you, and that is not a loving thing to do. It is easy to convince yourself that you must stay where you are because you have no place else to go; or because you know things could be worse, or because you know things could get better.

It is easy to look away at things that eat away at your sense of self, your sense of value, your sense of well being. As easy as it may be to blame someone else, to try to ignore what you feel, to call your pain a sacrifice for love, you are not being loving or wise to do so. Eventually, you will be responsible for everything you experience and how you have responded to it.

Love does not ask us to lose ourselves, harm ourselves or sacrifice ourselves for its sake.Love offers itself to us, measure for measure, what we offer. If you are being dishonored, disrespected, physically harmed for the love you give, you must ask yourself, “ Am I really giving love, or am I Simply afraid to leave?” Allow yourself to stand in truth, honor and peace of love. Ask yourself, “ Am I receiving all that I am giving?” If not, ask yourself, “Why not…?”Keep the faith and remember, Tough times don’t last always, Tough people do:...Life is short, Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile!!!!!!!!

Priorities and Accountability...

Well....where do I began! The last month or so has been very life altering and Amazingly different for me. The new networks, friendships and business ventures that I have recently embarked upon has most definitely challenged me in the areas of what things in my life are of priority and how I hold myself accountable to my actions and thoughts. With that said....It has come to my attention that our community has yet to learn the concept of Empowerment and Holistic health and wellness, and its vital necessity to be ever-present in our lives.
I was sharing my new business venture with a friend the other day...and while they were very interested and receptive in the overall concept and objectives of the business, they had a certain reservation about the financial investments that were necessary in order to be apart of the company as a consumer and/or business partner.

So, I went on to state various quotes about successful, wealthy people and how important it is to constantly invest in yourself as well as others while you are advancing in your business. Quotes like,

““Successful people are successful because they form the habits of doing those things that failures don't like to do.”…..or

“Invest three percent of your income in yourself (self-development) in order to guarantee your future.”

Then it hit me…..The Reality is: We need to learn how to invest and prioritize our finances, with accountability, for the betterment of ourselves, our hopes, dreams…and businesses!I’ve been in Atlanta, the acclaimed “Black Hollywood” long enough to realize that some of us do not understand the difference between being rich or successful and being wealthy…holistically! So, for some of my friends, family, colleagues to complain about the high financial investment needed to maintain a healthy/balanced life( nutrition, exercise, check-ups, hygiene, etc) is a complete joke to me when most of us can spend $300 on hair (not to sew in, that’s just to buy)…even as much as $1500 for a lace wig….$600-$1500 for a BAG!, nails…clothes…etc…..and you have the nerve to complain about a $20-$40 supplement?!...Come on people! Wake up!....

I’m not saying that you’re not entitled to splurge on these luxuries for yourself….what I am saying is that my job, as a health/wellness educator, distributor and massage therapist, is all the more difficult when my people( my color, my community) are the most negative and unreceptive folk when it comes to WHOLENESS, and being wealthy inside and out!Granted, society does make it hard for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle as far as food is concerned, because it costs more to eat healthy…and why spend $50 in the Whole Foods store when you can order for a family of six off the dollar menu…..point taken. However, we HAVE to be held accountable for what/ how we invest in what goes on the EXTERNAL part of our body and the INTERNAL part. You want the high paying jobs, the house with the ‘mortgage’, you want the elite titles and the VIP benefits to go with it….but what good is having those things if you won’t live long to enjoy them for yourself…or to see your children enjoy life. I assure you ladies and gentlemen…you will reap what you sow!

Now, I’m not advocating for you to be healthy so that I may recruit or sell you anything….This message is to simply inform and challenge you on TRUTH. Holistic health starts in the changing of your mind first….soul, body…and it manifests outwardly into your words, your walk, and they way you treat others. So make an investment in yourself! Make an investment in future! Make an investment into fulfilling those things that you are most passionate about in life….and the way you do that, is by Transforming your mind and unhealthy habits.

I may have struck a nerve…but I love you all the more!
