Do Not Deny Thyself

Do not compare yourself to anyone. Do not compete with anyone.

There is no reason to.

You are one of a kind. Just the way God created you to be.

Do not be disappointed do not be discouraged you are right where you are supposed to be.

There is love in the comfort of truth. There is comfort in the truth of self.

It is self that reveals in the comfort of love. -latoya lawrence

 

When A Door Closes A Window Opens

A door that is closed may be opened again if it is one that revolves.

Do not try to open a door that is locked. It is sealed for a reason.

Instead of pulling at a door that will not budge, go toward the window that has begun to open up.

Rest your hands on the sill. Look out at what is in front of you. Breath in the fresh air.

Climb up through.

Don’t fear the height at foot. Go down unto a new path of direction.

Take a step without looking back. Focus on what is ahead.

Leave what came to an end to be left behind.

No longer do you reflect on the door that you once had a tug with.

Infact, you are glad for the exit that brought you to an entry.

A blessing in disguise you now realize. Quite the big surprise.

Things are better now than they ever were before- thanks to the door.– latoya lawrence

 

 

 

Spiritual Sensitivity

Strong intuition, gut feelings, and constant or repetitive thoughts- whatever you want to call it- our inner voice of spirit talks to us often to impart certain messages, specific warnings and special knowledge/wisdom according to any particular situation that may be at hand.

I had a recent bout with a relentless alert to inform me about a pastor at a church I attended. The message came to me within my spirit, heightening within my thoughts and within my sensitivity to “feel”. I discerned as usual and took heed. “You can’t trust him. He is trouble. Stay away from him,” the inner voice conveyed.

I listened and acted as soon as I continued to get these intense revelations.

I did try to give the pastor the benefit of the doubt though one day the mention of a certain issue/subject matter during his Sunday morning church sermon confirmed what the holy spirit disclosed to me ahead of time in regard to him.

I appreciate that I was made aware and I ended our sessions of bible study before the circumstance became a disagreeable incident of some kind. I do very well to devote my own personal time and attention into scripture every day without an exchange of discussion with the pastor.

I was open and honest with him without giving him all of the major details and once I confronted him by email the nagging sensations gradually left me and I was at peace.

To conclude, this Pastor is not a bad guy, there is just something not right and that does not sit well with me within his disposition. I think one of the elements is that I am a little too pure and distinct within spirit for him.

He admitted to me that compared to other people he counselled with I did not have any dire issues. In fact, he told me I had the best life in terms of my lifestyle and spiritual foundation.

The pastor told me the trouble with certain others coming to him was about them having children by different men, and so on. I never had any predicament of that nature or the like.

 

 

Why Some Of Us Are Born With Second-Sight

Not yesterday, but last Sunday night a week ago, I watched a mystery, suspense, thriller, drama, titled “Second-Sight” which I could actually relate to.

This was a 2016 made for television movie. It starred a predominantly African American cast including the late Marla Gibbs (who played Florence on the Jeffersons many years ago).

Marla played a grandmother who explained to her granddaughter the gift of the “knowing power” through dreams, visions, and feelings (empathic)- how it passed and skipped through the generations of their family lineage.

I also liked the message behind the further impart of how God enables us who have these particular gifts to help other people through what we foreknow and foresee when her granddaughter asked why and what was the purpose of going through the circumstance of the warnings and messages that she received.

I was once told during my early twenties by another fellow person gifted with second-sight that our gifts are not for ourselves but for others, however, I strongly disagree.

Yes, those of us who are spiritually endowed by birth are to use our ability to further promote the Kingdom of God, but also the faculty is to bring us ourselves even closer to know our Lord ourselves and to enrich and assist us along within the process of our journey.

I know this all as a fact from my own lifelong deep encounters, numerous accounts, and incredible experiences.

God interacts with all of his children differently and according to the uniqueness in which he made us. We all have a special purpose to fulfill designed especially to his plan and the Lord will continue to guide us along the way that he has prepared.

Beware

Supervisors will bait employees with large sums of money just to advance themselves without any consideration for their fellow laborer’s welfare.

Regardless, there are people who will do anything for money.

About two months ago now, there was a text message that went out at a place of work for caregivers.

I didn’t believe my eyes when I saw the text advertise four-hundred dollars a day for a Caregiver case.

The message didn’t sound right to me. For all the years I worked in health care I never saw a case offered for four-hundred dollars a day.

I contemplated on the text, rationalizing what could be up. The only explanation I quickly came up with was the case had to be a Covid-19 positive client.

A while later, another text was sent out acknowledging that the case in need was indeed for someone who was Covid-19 positive.

The agency did not initially mention that vital information. They began to take loads of virus infected people, informing caregivers of PPE gear located at the homes of these clients for them to utilize.

No employee was obligated to accept any of the Covid-19 cases against their will. It was a free choice to any caregiver who worked for the agency.

One employee told me a supervisor sent her along with another coworker on a case at a hospital yet didn’t inform them ahead of time that the patient/client was positive for Covid-19.

I understand these people who have the virus need medical attention and have to be treated but it is the supervisor’s responsibility to inform their laborers in this particular life-threatening situation.

People have to be extra careful and look out for themselves because when money is involved unscrupulous professionals as well as ordinary individuals will generally put one at risk within a heartbeat.


The Pursuit

The Power Of The Lord Burns Strong For His Children

The pursuit is real. There is nothing one can do to stop it. When God comes to confront you be prepared to be swept away! Nothing can keep us from him. God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. He knows all. He knows when he will return us back to himself ahead of time. -latoya lawrence

To give a brief summary to make a point, I went through a lot as a child. I had a lot of good times in the process also, blessed in ways that inspired plenty of envy and jealously toward my mother and I. Which spurred up more discontentment from resentful neighbors and others whom we came into contact with who continuously witnessed our advantages.

I didn’t understand what motivated these people to act out and react at that exact time period during my early youth but my mother knew why. I grasped the depth of it as I had gotten older. I never imagined people could be so ill. I knew I had never liked them, knowing there was something off about them. The envy and jealousy lasted way up into my adulthood, taking on an even uglier turn.

When I entered my teenage years and realized favor was and had always been upon me from God, I hoped for unsavory things to never again appear the way it had before. Then certain events did happen again. I was pretty ticked off at God about it too. Furious about the people, the circumstances they caused, and God for having allowed the incidents to happen.

When life gets really taxing and does not go as planned or expected we get very upset because we are human. We feel this way because we think the Lord owes us something, I did. I believed he owed me because I hadn’t asked to be born into the world. So, I felt if he wanted me here so badly then make it worth my while. I didn’t appreciate all the trials and tribulations, especially as a young child- there were certain traumas even though I was strong and overcame them- it was the principal of the matter to me.

God can dish out to us so many wonderful big and small every day blessings that we ultimately love and enjoy. Still, we become annoyed, resentful, and distant the instant he permits something within our life that we didn’t appreciate or ask for. This reaction usually stems from our sense of unjust treatment from the bad experiences.

When I look back now, I see how much the Lord took care of me. He blessed me richly in far too many ways to count. I was very fortunate in spite of particular situations that came and went. God is really good and excellent regardless of what our minds are sometimes limited to comprehend about him.

When I stepped away from God out of frustration- he still protected and provided for me the whole time and kept my feet on solid ground. His holy spirit remained and maintained a work in me. My flesh was full of hatred but my spirit was full of peace and joy. I believed that peace and joy was from another source out of my wishful thinking.

Nevertheless, the Lord in his patience gave me my space, waiting for the exact day he would put my animosity to an end and wake me up from my nonsense to realize his extreme love and compassion for me.

God readily embraced me, eagerly forgave me, and now he celebrates me and my return with a stronger bond of love and devotion between us than ever before. I went back to the Lord immediately when I was faced by him. I was able to do this without a problem because of the trust that developed over the years when I experienced his incredible accounts of faithfulness.

Don’t get me wrong now, God is full of grace and mercy, nonetheless, he will correct us when necessary but it is not a punishment the act is done purely out of his precious love and care for us.

God is completely dependable and true, and I am on fire for him!

Since When Is Jesus Authority In My Life?

People We Can Count On by misslatoya

Lol, since when is Jesus the highest authority in your life?

In reply to Albanac.

Since he called me back to him months ago. I first accepted Jesus when I was around ten or twelve years of age. I had been angry at him for fifteen years.

However, when one is truly God’s child he doesn’t let them go no matter how mad they get at him and distance themselves. I actually thought I pushed God away, but the truth is he never left me.

Jesus leaves the ninety-nine sheep to go bring the one who wandered safely back home.

God attracted my attention and this time I listened to him. I am nolonger angry at God anymore. He had always been there for me within the past and is still there for me now. (https://misslatoya.wordpress.com/2020/12/12/my-roots/)

People We Can Count On

There are friends who stick closer than certain family members. Though there is no other who will stick by us more than Jesus.

Isn’t it wonderful to have people around you who genuinely do have your best interest in mind?

I’ve been very lucky to have and to have come into contact with a small group of loving people who I can trust and who I can depend on if ever in need even if just to talk about something. I’ve never been the type to bother anyone or to ask anyone for anything, however it is nice to know that I can go to these people if the moment calls for it.

A few of the people I have known since I was a baby and the others I met not too long ago.

Not everyone can truly call someone a friend, let alone a lot of the people they may hang around. Fortunately, I never hung around many to have called or considered them real friends. I referred to people who I made acquaintance with in the past associates.

I am thankful and grateful to God that he surrounded me with a very small amount of handpicked people who are not of the world who are genuine than a large random pile of people who are of the world and not sincere.

Thank you so much, Jesus!

A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need. -Proverbs 17:17




Quiet, Alone Time

 

I am an extremely positive person who carries a lot of positive energy. Energy that many have tried to drain and take for themselves unsuccessfully.

I have no tolerance for negativity and I do not ever intentionally envelop myself within anyone’s negative energy or bear any of their burdens. As an individual empathetically inclined I spiritually “feel” and absorb the vibration of others though I know how to fade out the unnecessary excess of what I paranormally apprehend within others mental and emotional states.

I am one who likes to do for herself, by herself, under her own order and itinerary. People consider me pleasantly sociable when I interact and I naturally am, I’m very high-spirited and love to talk and keep active. Even so, I often prefer solo engagement.

There are recreational sports we innermost like doing, or taking part in amongst ourselves, or around, and with family members. Those moments of meditation, cooking, crafting, reading, writing, planting, playing with pets and whatever else may satisfy one’s fancy.

Whatever one’s preference, it’s important to have time for self.

I am a person who likes their space, one who doesn’t want to be bothered with outsiders too often, or at all. So, there is no inconvenience within my regular periods of desired solitude as the matter comes naturally to me.

I’m very comfortable with myself and within my own skin and I enjoy my own company.

I don’t need the presence of others around me for gaiety or support. It feels good to not be burdened with a social dependence in which grants me no true fulfillment.

I deal with people only if I choose to not because I have to out of loneliness or desperation-that was never my style. I was always content alone, even as a child and when I played. I was extremely creative and continuously kept my self-occupied. I found that certain individuals interrupted my entertainment or vibration when they imposed and tagged along.

Even when I’m bored, I don’t want to be disturbed. I am grounded and have foundation; I have peace of mind.

Well-being is first and foremost; keeping the chakras balanced, the aura strong and bright, and the spirit cleansed promotes optimal mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

It is very beneficial and sometimes vital to have that quiet, alone time where we distance ourselves periodically from others to rejuvenate and generate additional radiant energy.

We explore our interests, hobbies, or leisure more abundantly when vibration is within harmony to the essence in which particularly surrounds us.

Proud To Be Unique/Proud To Be Real

Those of us in particular who are genuine messengers speak in truth through spirit; I write automatically within the form of automatic writing, a power that self- expresses and that writes itself. 

Self Love Self Respect

Strength Of Character

The Veil Of Truth

I love how energy manifests truth, the genuine essence of one that cannot be repressed or denied. 

When others aim to define us for who they want us to be or for who they falsely perceive us to be, and/or question, doubt, or speculate our true motives and intentions for why we operate in how we do-which is really just us being our authentic and distinct selves-validity knocks them down every time. 

A lot of people aren’t capable of dealing with actualities that they aren’t commonly accustomed to within certain individuals who are unconventional and unusual.  

Many often reflect their own insecurities and propensities onto others unsubstantially; some may even unrightfully accuse us of incorporating defense mechanisms instead of just accepting the harsh reality of our truths in regard to specific circumstances concerning numerous aspects of life, people, and situations.  

Some people kill me with the nonsense about putting up walls if we don’t like or want to be bothered-such a crock of bullshit! That may be true for some, in general; however, in the case of certain others and such as myself, we don’t put up walls we knock them down because we demand and enjoy the freedom to not be confined to the narrow margins/boundaries of ignorance. 

When we refuse to allow the negative views, opinions, or accusations of others to overthrow our veracity and reality truth automatically speaks for itself. It is that exact genuineness that gives us the natural authority and passion to ignore and scoff at the absurdities, enabling us to blossom and flourish even more elaborately through celestial energy. 

Fallacy has no bearing on the foundation wherewith we stand and wherefrom we go therefore.  

The profit through our blessings reward us for confidently placing our trust within the authenticity of our true identification; an honest verification to the origin of living one’s own special dimensional life force. 

The Truth Behind The Veil

Born with a caul is who I am, yet I am more than just one born with extra sensory perception.

Child Of The Caul

Spirit brings me into who I fully am and I love the assistance of a highly guided escort; the generation of my own exuding magnetic energy graciously outlining the pattern. 

The Body Is The Temple

Keep It Protected With The Vitality Of Spirit

Healthy Living

For Mind, Body, And Soul

Wellness

To have a healthy and highly functional mind In this day and age seems to be a curse with all of the twisted and misdirected chaos reigning upon the world.

Nevertheless, I stay innately dedicated to nurturing the state and condition of mind, body, and spirit.

Ever since I was a teen I took the path that lead to the route of vitality, and that meant staying away from toxic people as well as toxic foods, and other hazardous elements in which caused a threat to one’s happiness and well-being.

These were inborn survival tendencies.

I understand people who don’t like other people because I was always one of those people.

I understand not caring about them, not wanting to be around them, not having any respect for them, or their existence.

A lot of people tend to be trouble and cause problems through conflicting modes of personality and behavior, especially the ones who keep up a constant disturbance.

People will make you not like them, but it is  certain types of people who fit into this category.

Some people give off an energy that we just don’t take to.

When we’re surrounded by people of a corresponding vibration who are equivalent or analogous within mentality we are more apt to connect with them.

Like-minded and relatable people usually have a decent or harmonious appeal toward one another.

Overall health is very important and it is mandatory to take care of one’s own self within all aspects of life. We must watch what we put into our bodies, watch what we do with our bodies, and watch who and where we place our bodies around.

Keep away from the wrong foods and beverages, keep away from activities that are not suitable or beneficial, keep away from people, places, and things that do not promote peace, power, and protection.

Energy and vibration is key to living and feeling well and the advantage of wellness is the profit of living a lifetime full of good well-being.

 

The Art Of Truth

There is a new movie titled The Art Of Racing In The Rain that is constantly being advertised on the radio and television.

I haven’t read up on the movie in regard to gathering any additional detail other than what is continuously being previewed as I really don’t care.

I have absolutely no interest in this movie at all I am just going to focus on the lines in which the media keeps running over and over in specific.

The characters within the film address “The dog is a spiritual being”, “The dog taught us all how to be human”, and the dog itself stating “he was meant through fate to be with the family who owns him”.

Society is always late when on the verge of or beginning to take notice of things and facts that quite a few of us people have already experienced and knew decades ago that others were ignorant about or may would have laughed off as nonsense or superstition.

I always hated people who, in general, talked shit, doubted, or made light of something until the encounter or situation happened to them or became non obscure.

Anyway, back to this particular subject, I knew a dog I adopted was born and meant to be in my life back in the 1980’s. She was a spiritual blessing temporarily residing within a canine’s body and she did a lot for me within the many years we spent together.

Of course, there are special dogs and sets of circumstances involving numerous instances and various aspects of life that are sent to certain people for reasons in which have deep spiritual meanings and messages to benefit, to learn, and to grow from.

Tell us “certain people in specific” something that we don’t already know mainstream society!

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.

Well-Being For The Spiritually Inclined

Like I’ve said and addressed before in some of my posts, it’s not the circumstances of being born with a caul and inheriting gifts which bestow supernatural/preternatural faculties that cause or bring to us problems, it is the propensities and ways of other people.

One doesn’t even have to be born with a caul to be burdened by the incompatibility of the world and of society.

Many of these individuals don’t see how their thoughts and behavior reflect on how we view and feel about them when it comes to how we’re treated, especially since we have the third eye which allows us to gaze into instance at a sagacious level.

I cannot speak for all but for those similar to me It’s always been more than just people but principalities and the fashions in which God created things in specific to be where I find dissension and disharmony at.

I won’t get into all detail as it is not necessary but I strongly feel I don’t belong here, like I’m an old soul because I was already familiar with life so early on without having to experience things, having constantly been in tune and ahead of my time while being tired of living a life and going through the cycle of motions in a world that doesn’t coincide and measure up to who I am in true essence and what I yearn for within an existence as whereas to reside in.

I wonder if I’m too spiritual for my own good with this heightened extraordinary sensitivity. I can’t complain because it keeps me informed and structured in this vile and corrupt world.

And the “sensitivity” has absolutely nothing to do with “emotional weakness” or “fragile feelings” as some often mistake with us who are born spiritually inclined. Our heightened sensitivity is the intensity of what we perceive (our intuitive capacity) and absorb to the point where it can make us a reflecting vessel of whatever energy we may come into contact with or connect to.

Energies can also damper our moods and make us physically ill as some of us “feel” others elemental residue and the weight of the world.

Nevertheless, we who have a strong spirit endure and sustain regardless and we have guidance continuously watching over us to protect and to help us get through the burdens and ordeals in which we are bombarded and repulsed by.

I’ve noticed how something ethereal has carried me all along. We still have to do our parts by remaining faithful to our own states of being and mode of particular belief systems. This is not a hard thing to do as sincerity and loyalty naturally support the foundation of a spirituality when the alignment is pure and genuine.

A lot of us have been introduced to different types of trauma during childhood though those experiences do not define who we become yet circumstances do shape us into who we are whether negatively, positively, or within a neutral aspect.

We just have to keep on moving and improving and living and doing the things in which bring to us our own personal joy and fulfillment. Whatever further answers, closure, or epiphanies that pertain to our inquiries, discoveries, and/or additional contentment or enlightenment will be revealed by our inner voices of spirit when each period crosses and we’re ready to receive those significant messages.

Intelligence/Experience/Talent/Education

Gifted people come in all varieties. We as individuals can do anything that is within what we are capable of doing.

When I was in my early twenties an associate of my mother’s had met with me in person for the first time and heard me speak and hold a conversation and responded later to my mother by addressing “I was nowhere near the level that she’s on at that age. I thought she was in college”.

I wondered to myself “What does college have to do with intellect and mentality?”

Even a professional who I wrote an essay for when I got accepted at a college years ago which I decided not to attend asked me “How do you know how to write so good if you’ve never been to a college?” I didn’t get it because I’ve never associated intelligence and talents with professional training. To me, everything depends on ones own individual capacity.

This person didn’t mean any harm (my mother’s associate), of course, his words were actually a compliment and acknowledged that just because someone is in college doesn’t make them smarter than someone who is not.

I was never one to believe that school actually made one smart and I was never intimidated by anyone’s degree as I could attain the same achievement or higher if I chose to. School is just a tool of enhancement to progress an already intelligent and capable mind. However, learning comes within all fashions and within all places it is whether one is able to fully grasp what is being taught to them.

I remember back in the day how left back students attending high schools who didn’t have a satisfactory grade level of reading skills were eventually promoted out of school and allowed to graduate just because administration was tired, frustrated, or just didn’t want to deal with the problem anymore and decided to get rid of them instead.

When I was ten years old I took and passed tests high school children were unable to complete and pass without a problem. I even had an opportunity to get published by a mainstream publisher for short stories that I wrote back then.

Now I’m hearing in this day and age kindergarten children are getting left back. Some of it is the parents fault as they may have messed their children up with drugs and alcohol or are just not putting in the extra effort or time to help and teach their children. Even some parents themselves don’t have the knowledge to properly raise and guide their children

Don’t get me wrong, though, school is a positive and constructive resource, however, education is just the incorporation of particular knowledge which can be learned within any setting to the individual who has the right development and equipment.

I already knew how to read and write before I ever began school as a youngster and when I got older I was skipped a grade into a class for the gifted. Yet, school never held my interest as I was bored.

I didn’t have a problem with school itself but it was the individuals and the environment in which I had to attend school with. I liked it better learning one on one with a sufficient older person or within the presence of a specific group of other like-minded adolescents.

When I became fully grown and totally came into my own I liked partaking within classes better since I was not a child who didn’t have the control around my situations as children are oftentimes not taken as seriously within maturity and allowed the partiality of making their own fair judgments among other adults in certain situations.

Some are naturally born with communication skills and have the faculty to problem solve as I was.

I know people who’ve attended school and higher education who are still in school and they are definitely not too bright, especially within the area of common sense. And some people do cheat their way out.

I know some people who battle with low self esteem, ignorance, a complex of some sort and use their credentials as a badge of authority toward others. I don’t cater to people like that I don’t consider people experts soley depending on a course they’ve took or a certificate they’ve recieved I have too much of an open mind as well as common sense and too much experience to know that knowledge or brilliance is not packaged strictly in standard wrappings there is also the papers that come decorated in all styles and design.

My Birthday

In my own true words:

I’m a true friend to the end, I’m one who those can depend on, and I’m very strong and independent, I’m also too hard for anyone to get over on.

Happy Birthday To me. Today is my birthday and the little Toya that I use to be within the past is the same little Toya that I am today just an even better version of the girl I was born to be.

I’m down to earth, straight to the point, honest to the core, and as stubborn as one can be, its all still me.

I’ll continue to be my genuine self no matter what, it is within my nature, after all I am Taurus the bull.

We Are Who We Are

At work this morning a client of mine inquired to me “Why are you always so happy?”

 I asked her if she’d prefer that I’d be sullen or gloomy?

A lot of people are stressed on their jobs I never feel that sort of tension or strain while I’m engaging in my tasks and dealing with other individuals. If anything, I use my occupations as an outlet or an adventure especially when I enjoy what I do.

Of course, work sometimes includes demands and inconvenience but in the end its worth the efforts that I venture towards.

By nature I’ve always been a bubbly/high-spirited person others have also described me as being animated, lively and full of life and sometimes, excitement. Even during times of tribulation I manage to naturally keep my composure and upbeat attitude.

When we have positive energy surrounding us and we’re around good vibration it only enhances the mood to bring out the best within us and that is a very healthy and rewarding sense of contentment and pleasure.

I’m also fiery and some will mistake that passion for anger when its just the essence of my inborn force and drive. Sure I can be vicious when I get heated but for the most part I’m a very strong-willed, energetic, and determined person I can’t help it that is just who I am and who I have always been, and I will always continue to be that way without apology.

Go With The Flow

Through automatic writing, the words are unplanned within me.

A continuing saga, that never ceases to be.

Quite mysterious yet serious, it all calls out to me.

I love the way it makes me, the magical places it takes me.

Spirit inspired me to create another blog that expresses and promotes wellness as I am back in the mode to write and have the time in between time.

(https://authenticexpression.food.blog/)

I have quite a few interests.

I am a multi-tasker and have those multi talents just like a lot of other people out there in the world and it is important to utilize those abilities if one is hit with inspiration.

Talent and creativity shouldn’t be wasted even if it is just a hobby it is important to let out inner voice and vision even if we don’t know where it will lead us.

Energy puts us into motion and the vibe guides us along the way. No matter what one is motivated to do be sure to exercise and to nurture it too.

Expiriment and explore, then is when we open up the door.

Once we get inside, we don’t tend to get discouraged because during our times of fulfillment, the force has us wanting more.
