Life's Transformation Happens With The Willingness to Evolve

Posted On: May 29, 2016

The butterfly is very symbolic because it totally became a different being. The caterpillar and butterfly are not the same but the butterfly had to be a caterpillar first, in order to become the butterfly.

It resonates evolution, the aspects of transformation in life and the importance of progression.

The butterfly can teach us a lot about life, how to manifest goals, dreams; and how growth is essential. In accomplishing goals and dreams, one must be willing to change what might hinder the progress of it. The willingness to grow, transform, mature mentally, spiritually; and emotionally. And whatever areas that need to be fertilized and harvested, towards evolving into the person who will live the life of those goals and dreams. 

"Evolution is the process of transformation. The butterfly can not exist without the caterpillar. Once we understand this, we will gain all from life experiences that cultivates and enhances our growth."

Playing The Guitar From The Strings Of His Heart

Posted On: August 31, 2015

His sings the blues from the rhythm of his soul and plays the guitar from the strings of his heart.

It's the harmony of the sun dancing with the moon and the stars making cloud angels.

It's a song only the universe recognizes, although it's being heard for the first time.

With musical notes composed by eternity and a symphony awakened in forever.

The Cracking of An Egg: 'Pursuit of Happyness'

Posted On: August 12, 2015

There's more than one way to crack an egg.

"If the egg is cracked from the outside, it's destroyed. If the egg is cracked from the inside, it gives birth to life."

- Author Unknown

So, who's the egg? Check out the metaphor of the egg cracking, one leads to destruction, while the other basically creates and builds. I'm going elaborate on this quote in two, maybe three parts. The first example I am going to utilize is a scene from the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness," and the movie as a whole.

I'm sure most of us have seen the movie The Pursuit of Happyness starring Will Smith, which was based on actual events, detailing the journey and uprising of Chris Gardner, in becoming one of Wall Street's most successful broker. The path for Gardner played by Will Smith, was not an easy one but he stayed on it and kept going.

Chris Gardner is the egg from the above quote.

In the movie, Will Smith's character Chris Gardner decides he wants to become a broker and work on Wall Street. He had no experiences nor any form of educational background but he was good with numbers and knew how to strategize, which was a tool and advantage for him. It was not a big dream but it was indeed something he had the vision for. He decided he was going to go for it, against all odds. As the movie plays, Gardner encounters challenges which caused some changes in his life, from his living arrangements like moving out a house to a hotel, selling his car and making the necessary sacrifices to manifest this vision he has of himself becoming a broker.

The challenges are actually pressures like Chris Gardner's wife who is played by Thandie Newton, does not believe in him, she doesn't see him becoming a broker working on Wall Street. She ends up leaving him and their son, Smith goes on as a single father trying to provide the best possible life for his child. All these pressures are being added to the character Chris Gardner, who is the egg being portrayed in this movie.

Instead of things getting better, more pressure is being applied when Smith's character Gardner gets kicked out of the hotel he was staying at with his son and they end up spending nights at different shelters and even at a bathroom stall in a train station.

All these pressures could of easily caused Chris Gardner to either break down or leave a dent in his goals and vision of becoming a broker. That would of meant the egg cracked from the outside, even if he broke down, it could of destroyed his vision, goals and everything he was working towards in becoming a broker. Although, there was a lot of pressure, Smith's character is the only one who could cause the egg to crack, either from the outside or within. It's all about how he applies the pressure and how he allows the pressure to apply towards him, in order to mold him.

The question is, when did the egg (Chris Gardner) cracked?

One of the pivotal scenes in the movie, is when Chris gets hired on Wall Street and at that moment is when the egg cracked.

Some people look at this scene and think it was about Chris Gardner finally getting the job, some interpret as the pursuit of happiness in the movie was about money but both of those analysis are wrong. Chris could easily got a job somewhere else or brought some more of those bone scanners to sell. He could of easily gave up this vision of getting into Wall Street because of the pressure and the sacrifices he had to make. But instead he allowed the pressure to mold and polish him, in order to shine.

In the scene above, when the egg cracked, it gave birth to Chris Gardner's purpose of launching his own firm as a broker and also, in becoming a new man. It gave birth to the life of a newfound dream from the vision Chris had of becoming a broker. All the pressures Chris Gardner (pictured below) endured caused him as the egg to crack from within and it gave birth to his dreams, purpose and destiny.

Based on the timeline of the movie, I'm sure there were other things the movie, The Pursuit of Happyness didn't portray like Chris Gardner being an African-American man and dealing with racism, those things were also factors in the pressures of life Chris endured, overcame and conquered.

This man did not give up (neither should you), no matter how tough it got, he applied the pressure to break forth his dreams (cracked the egg) and became all that God created him to be.

Awakening the Goddess in You

Posted On: November 05, 2017

Awakening the spirit of the Goddess in you. Yes, hunny, it is time to reclaim your power! The Goddess energy has returned and it is time to generate this energy from within.

The Goddess, the feminine energy has been suppressed for many generations but you can not suppress something that is an important component in our universe. This is why the earth is imbalanced and Mother Nature has been at war with human kind. This all started when Caucasian males started visiting Egypt and came across the ankh and how women where worshiped in Egypt as Goddesses, a female version of a God. And the ankh (the original cross) represents the Goddess energy displaying the womb. When these men came across those ancient text, symbols and statues of these Goddesses, it was too much for them. These men could not fathom nor had the vision to see a woman as a God, which we already know is a Goddess. Mind you, every man that has entered this earth was conceived in a womb of a woman and came through a woman. Seems like a godly attribute of a Goddess.


In trying to suppress the truth, the womb (the feminine energy, the Goddess) was revised and taken out of the original cross (the ankh pictured below). And revamped into the modern cross (Roman crucifixion of Christ) that we know of today. As well as, the original Holy Trinity which is the Divine Mother, Divine Father and the Divine Child but that's another article on its own. You can't hide nor suppress the truth and guess what? The Goddess is back baby! We are in the era where the Goddess, feminine energy has returned to restore balance on this earth.

In moving forward with the topic "Divination, Spiritual Health & Metaphysics," I have to touch on the subject of the Goddess and the feminine energy. Because there are aspects in spirituality and divination which requires working with deities that are Goddesses, channeling feminine energy through fruits, cowries shells, coffee beans and etc. If you don't know the goddess and feminine energy from within yourself, you can't channel it because it comes from within. To plug into this power as a woman, one has to awaken, invoke their goddess energy from within to channel it; and be one with the divine energy of the Goddess.


Throughout history it has been a power struggle with the masculine energy (men) when it comes to the feminine energy (women). This power struggle does not stem from the universe but human kind, men who had a problem with the feminine energy (women) being worshiped as a Goddess. This is in Westernized cultures because other cultures and parts of the world continue the ancient practice of worshiping the Goddess. When you look at the timeline of history, women have been suppressed in their powers and freedom. There was a time when women weren't allowed to vote, if a women knew how to heal herself, had insight, vision and intelligence that stem from within, she was executed; this is what happened during the Salem Witch Trials. In the suppression of their powers and freedom, women were told by men on how to look, feel, how to carry herself, even with her sexuality; and etc. This psychological conditioning continues on today in our society with some of the advertisements and commercials that we see. Especially targeting melaneted women being told they should be lighter in skin, their hair should be straight, their nose should be thin and etc., to look more like European women. Its more of a racist psychological conditioning which has affected women, their confidence and self esteem.

The general psychological conditioning continues to affect women, even in today's modern society. You have some women who would rather embody and see themselves as a king instead of a queen. Mainly because of how the king has been viewed and praised. The queen is just as supreme, royal and powerful as the king. As a matter of fact, the queen is the most powerful piece on a chessboard. The feminine energy is all around us, we see it in oysters (pictured below), fruits, certain flowers, cowries shells, coffee beans; and more.

Awakening the Goddess energy from within brings forth balance in oneself. It awakens your power as a woman, your innate knowledge, connection to the earth, cosmos; and the universe as a whole. It awakens your intuition, although women are naturally intuitive, awakening the Goddess nurtures and fortifies a woman's intuition. Awakening the Goddess energy from within, a woman begins to see beauty from a different angle, through her eyes and not the eyes of society. This empowers a woman's confidence, belief in herself and cultivates her self esteem. Because beauty is no longer defined through the eyes of another or society but through the eye of her soul.

Awakening the Goddess energy from within also, empowers a woman to bring forth her innate knowledge and wisdom, this energy guides her in healing herself through her soul and spirit. It reconnects women to Mother Nature grounding themselves, in order to elevate into a higher and better version of themselves. Awakening the Goddess energy from within brings enlightenment and knowledge of the women knowing and being familiar with herself, understanding her true power stems from within.
