We’re Not Defined By The Ignorance Of Others

I never feared to be who I am no matter how many people talked. I never cared what anyone said or thought: they were scared of me; they were jealous of me; they wanted to be like me!

Spiritual Blockages

Envy And Jealousy

When I was a little girl there was always a lot of jealousy around me and my mother, certain people constantly judging me on account of me not doing the same things that they, or their children were doing. People judging her on account of her strong personality, intelligence, style and advantages. 

Many had the nerve to ignorantly speculate what direction my life was heading in and what or how I would turn out to be while all along I in no way had showed any indication of having a negative outcome as they had and as their children did. 

It was more about them wanting to see something bad come about me and my way. Their children were supposed to be superior-not because they actually were-but because they bought them certain material things. Money couldn’t buy inherent wisdom! 

My mother was able to buy me particular things also. What did it mean? My mother showed me genuine love, concern, attention, and she was very smart and had the knowledge to sufficiently raise me. 

It was known that I was meant to do well in my life whereas others in specific weren’t as fortunate or spotless in matters of personal regrets or mistakes in which they couldn’t get past or considered setbacks or skeletons in their closets. The way their minds thought was a reflection on them and not anyone else who thought on a higher or opposite level. 

My mother was also meant to succeed. 

No matter what undesirable people would throw our way we continuously rose above and conquered to our liking of satisfaction. 

The Knowing Power

Power Of My Ancestors

Mind And Spirit Was Too Strong

Whether from relatives or outsiders (associates/acquaintances) people who are jealous for various reasons of their own will attempt to cause spiritual blockages in efforts to bring one down to their level or below.  

When they cannot measure up to certain calibers and are insecure about the situations that they may be in they will falsely rationalize or misinterpret their interference as a solution/downfall to equalize one to them all. Especially if they felt or interpreted that these people were better than them or considered themselves to be. Then they erroneously figure that their target will have to relent.  

Unfortunately, some individuals do break down and feel lesser than what they were as they are oblivious to what may have taken place. 

When I was in the fifth grade, I could actually feel an energy trying to block my intelligence. My great-grandmother and certain others at the time were having witchcraft done on me to halt my ability to grasp and to learn because I was very intellectually advanced at such a young age. However, the negativity didn’t prevail. I was able to know what was happening because I was born with a caul, I had intuitively felt and discerned the unnatural energy around me. 

There were also blockages put up to cause hostility between my mother and I because of the loving and close relationship that we had. 

The Spiritual blockages of various negativity (voodoo/black magic/witchcraft/evil eye/etc….) consists of attempting to block one’s intelligence, healthy and loving relationships/friendships, career/job/money, happiness/peace of mind/luck, health/lifestyle, spirituality and so on. 

The light is never put out by the darkness, it is impossible. The darkness may be able to place a temporary shadow over the light in order for the unveiling of further enlightenment, however, if one chooses to remain within the illusion of the shade that is totally on them! 

The Darkness Cannot

Overpower The Light

I turned out wonderfully as the individual I was supposed to within mind and character

My ancestors and orishas got me! They always had and they always will!

Solid

 

 

My Ancestors, Orishas, Special Spirits, and Spirit Guides:

For time and time again, you all have never let me down; you’ve always had my back, no matter what. You all never fail to come through for me, and I love you all dearly.
Power to the great universe!

Love? That is so funny. You don’t know the definition of love! I don’t want anything from you. I don’t want your affection or your money, or anything else from you.

If you loved yourself you would have never done the specific things you’ve done and lived life the specific way you’ve lived.

Remember when you told me you wanted to give me funds from your pension when you die? Well, you can shove it up your ass.

You can’t buy me!

I don’t need your itty bitty shit I was born to have my own and I have been doing pretty darn well- I even do my own taxes! I have been handling my own jobs, career, and money for years now. The universe is not going to let anything happen to me.

Oh what a pathetic bitch you are, Tina, you along with others who were foolish enough…

coconutsI stay close to Elegba as we have a special bond that no one can break, he is one of my African soldiers, the chief among the others yet all of them maintaining their high roles, whether it is my Goddess Oshun, right hand man Ogun, grandfather Orunmila or backup man Ochosi.

I love Elegba, he is and has been so good to me, and it is unbelievable.

Never have I been able to trust so loyally within a divine spirit to do right by me than he and my other specific Orishas that reside within and around my life and upon the universe, not to mention all of the truth , guidance,  love and respect that they have all expressed to me.

I am still amazed whenever Elegba occasionally shows and let’s me know when his powerful spirit is surrounding me by giving me signs, whether he turned on…

So Lovely

It’s amazing and beautiful how essence surrounds and envelops one with support and protection; the nurturing, the preservation, the love and the certainty.

I feel good and I maintain a positive outlook.

The concrete foundation proves to serve as an authentic life fulfilling purpose within its specific design.

It is loyal and fully consistent. Oh, so lovely and generous. It is all worthwhile.

I just had to give and show praise and appreciation unto the nature behind it.

Thank You So Much.

Vile Strength

Working Woman By Miss LaToya

My mother had me when she was twenty-two years old and we became very close as we bonded immediately after I was born.

We’ve been through a lot together enduring circumstances in which many would not have survived and coming out sustained within a fashion that has caused some to wonder and to be amazed.

My mother and I have battled a very long way from the negativity directed towards us by envious, jealous, and unsavory people in specific.

My mother and I both constantly held our ground and we continue to stand.

Hooray to Peace, power, love, and protection.

Praise To My Ancestors And Orishas


I do come from a very good, strong, loving, tight/close knit and successful large family, however, growing up I wasn’t around most of them since they were all spread out living within different vicinities, and some of my earlier relatives had already passed away.

My grandmother (Catherine Lawrence) wouldn’t keep in contact with many of them when they use to call her all of the time.

It wasn’t until she had a stroke when she tried to reach back out to a lot of them decades ago far before she died. I still have a lot of family in which I personally don’t know and have never met because my grandmother didn’t maintain those relationships.

Nevertheless, I’m very lucky and blessed and I feel very fortunate to have my ancestors and orishas around me to watch over and protect me.

It’s very heartwarming and honorable as they knew upon my childhood that many of the people around me and that I’d eventually come into contact with growing up (including other specific family members) during and through out the years up into my adulthood weren’t shit, and would turn out to be nothing and no good, and also the outrageous shit in which I would have to go through and endure with unsavory and unsavvy people as well as all of the undesirables.

They knew how I would need and deserve the proper assistance and positivity within my corner along with truth and sincerity by my side to successfully lead, guide, and see me through to a better quality of life.

My ancestors and orishas have always known that I was a worthy and valuable individual with backbone, knowledge, and depth of character. I was one of them, one of their very own, and loyal beings as us within family and nature constantly have each others backs.

If I wasn’t a good person aligned within the balance of my own right and unconventionality I wouldn’t have always been so deeply connected and respected within spirit.

Automatically and inevitably, I deeply respect and connect to the extraordinary circumstances in which I am surrounded by.

There is so much love and appreciation that I hold dear and close to my heart in response to all of the solicitous and favorable treatment and regard in receipt from my ancestors and orishas. Not to mention the extra advantages within dimension by the momentous generosity of the universe.

Reunited With The Family


I’ve connected with the occurrences on the other side through dreams and observed relatives as a passerby after they’d made their transitions.

When my great-grand mother Amanda Byars (my mother’s father’s mother) and uncle Willie Jr (my mother’s brother) passed away years ago they went straight to hell which was where they both had deserved to be and forever reside.

My grandmother Catherine Lawrence (my mother’s mother) on the other hand was fortunately taken upon a different route as she was captured by the unearthly presence of her loved ones upon her sudden death.

She was at one time within the sphere as to where my dog Brandie was when they happened to come across one another during their arcane travel the only thing was that my dog was able to walk, run, and camouflage herself whereas my grandmother’s legs were still immobile as they were before she had died.

“Spirit” let me know and witness how my good ancestors came for their own, ensuring my grandmother’s path and voyage back to them.

There is a reason why they took her into their bosom and I trust within their reasons for doing so. My ancestors got us.

 

 

 

Reciprocated Thoughts


 A while before it was divulged to me through a course of following visions whereas Orisha Oshun had come into contact with my deceased dog Brandie, only to become greatly fond of her and incited to hospitably serve to her as a congenial and escort within the spirit realm, I was concerned for Brandie.

I’d usually get visitation sessions with my pet during my dream states and had not seen or occupied any time with her within my sleep.

So I was up in my bed one night uttering to myself within my thoughts, “I want to see my baby”.

Shortly after, I began to see dim flashes of what appeared to be a leg and a paw of Brandie’s develop right there in front of my eyes in apparition mode.

Later that night, I finally again reunited with my beloved pet, satisfied and relieved. I just wanted and needed to know that she was alright since I had been elevating her spirit to keep her safe and comfortable.

Unbeknownst to me at the time the reason I hadn’t came into contact with Brandie was because she was in the process of raising to a higher dimension that was temporarily interrupted on the account to put my mind at ease beforehand.

It is said that time within the spirit realm differs considerably measured to our specific mode of time.

Through another following dream the elevation process which allowed me to be present this time around to aid Brandie myself into her upgrade was resumed.

I have clear memory of being with my dog moments prior to her entry into the dimension yet no recollection at all of what happened and how the instance actually transpired.

I guess the revelation was not for me to be tangibly conscious of at this period within my stage of discovery and I completely understand and am totally fine with this as I feel lucky and honored already to have took part in such an experience to begin with.

We know what we need to know for now, however, everything within our incorporeal accounts as well as the missing pieces to our mysterious puzzles will be manifested unto us within due time. My baby is at peace.

My Altar

I’ve set up quite a few altars within my lifetime with the aid and essence of “spirit” carefully guiding and motioning my steps.

 I’d actually feel and sense the energy of my ancestors and deities, and, if my deities weren’t pleased with something they’d let me know as to confirmation to the things I may have suspected beforehand as well as to what they were content with in regards to our own simultaneous commonality.

I had learned that my orishas and I shared the same features and attributes of particular behavior and attitude.

It is a wonderful and lovely fashion in which to connect, communicate, and acquire, personally and supernaturally.

 Set aside a certain area most suitable and preferable to your liking and accord. The location of the altar can be established and situated anywhere one feels comfortable to prepare their spiritual vessel of dedication.

Upon the altar may be placed anything necessary in reference and into relation to who and what is being venerated and communicated with.

In addition, inner voice of spirit as well as spirit guides will further direct and navigate within accordance to other requirements and development.

How Do We know Our Ancestors And/Or Orishas Are Working Within Our Lives?

We know when things start to run consistently smooth within our lives. The process is one that doesn’t happen for us overnight. Our steps and behavior are observed, tested, and measured yet along the way our venerated ones still do look out for us.

They protect and cater to our needs as they know, see, and understand our daily routines, interactions, and temporary setbacks or hassles. We don’t get penalized for things we’re not sure about or not clear on it’s about our dedication, loyalty, and mode of life within accordance to our own relevant and appropriate paths.

From my own personal encounters my ancestors and orishas gave me the chance in between to evaluate the fashions in which they operated as I developed a trust that became mutual as they already had the trust in me before they approached, guided, and revealed themselves to me in the beginning.

As we further learn and discover and heed to our inner voices of spirit we experience, evolve, and elevate. The more we do for our ancestors and/or orishas the more they will continue to do for us by providing unto them consideration/appreciation and the energy sources of preference and appeasement it must always come purely from the heart, mind, and soul. The priceless and valuable exchange is based on a love and respect that concurrently goes both ways.

Since we correspond with our ancestors and orishas between worlds/realms there are special courses of action that we have to undertake in order to collaborate effectively at higher levels of succession. And, whatever is required they will benevolently let us know.
