Anaya Lee Willabus Becomes Youngest Author to Make History Writing a Book With Chapters

Posted On: March 06, 2016

In the spring of 2015, a nine year old penned, authored and launched her first book. Anaya Lee Willabus made history as the youngest published author to write a book in chapters. Her book "The Day Mohan Found His Confidence" storyline is about a little boy named Mohan, who struggles to find balance at home and school. Mohan discovers his confidence to accomplish and excel.

Anaya was inspired to create and write the book during trip to Guyana (the homeland of her parents) with her family and witnessing the struggles of some of the children there. 

"Our first trip to Guyana inspired me and I have the gifts that were needed," Anaya expressed. "These events that happened to Mohan are not things that happened to me, but have happened to many other children. For example, many other children may have problems in school, many other children may have lost one of their parents."

Following her vision, Anaya began the creative process and implementation of her book. She was guided by her mother who is the CEO of a promotional company (Rhythm Nation Entertainment) but Anaya wanted to have sole creative control with designing the book cover, the kind of picture she wanted, the graphic work and etc. 

"Whatever she told me I put down and it had to be exactly that otherwise she gets very upset," explained her mother. "There were about 20 different covers and she didn’t like any of them. She wanted this font, this picture and she had to have pink and purple (her favorite colors)," Willabus' mother elaborated. 

The picture Anaya Lee selected is a photograph of her little brother playing soccer. With the love of reading and being an avid writer, also combining the scrapbook of ideas she had, Anaya penned her first book.

During a recent interview with NY Daily News, Anaya Lee's mother expressed how she knew there was always something special about her daughter. 

"We knew something was different with her," Willabus' mother, Dimple proudly expressed. "She never learned to walk. She actually started running. She started reading at 2 years old."

Her mother also conveyed, that Anaya is just ike any other kid who loves eating candy, fights with her siblings despite her extraordinary talents and abilities. 

Anaya’s favorite books include: Malala Yousafzai‘s I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban, and President Obama‘s Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.

"I like to read all genres, of books. I love both reading and writing. They both have something that I love in them," Anaya Lee Willabus revealed during her interview. 

Anaya also asserted, she prefers the classic and original way of reading. And not into Nook or Kindle. 

"I prefer traditional books because of the beauty of turning the pages." 

(I agree, there's nothing like the smell of a fresh new book and the sound of turning pages.)

Anaya Lee's book "The Day Mohan Found His Confidence" can be purchase at Barnes & Noble,  Amazon,  and Rhythm Nation Entertainment.

Congrats lil mama, you inspire me!

True Magick Stems From Within/Channeling Energy

Posted On: November 11, 2017

"True magick stems from within."

- Andrale Marie'

In the beginning of the film "The Craft," it displays an altar where we observe the pentagram, candles, herbs and etc., including three witches trying to cultivate power outside of themselves. Nancy, Rochelle and Bonnie are trying to harness power outside of themselves utilizing the tools at their altar but are not tapping into any true power.

So, here comes Sarah who is a natural born witch that Nancy, Rochelle and Bonnie are not aware of yet. The four of them visit a spiritual botanica store and Sarah interacts with the owner and confided in telling the owner she's never read any books about witches or being a witch. The owner tells Sarah that she is a natural witch and how her power comes from within. Sarah, Nancy, Rochelle and Bonnie take a trip and go out into nature where they made a pact with each other. During making this pact in forming a circle, Sarah holds hands with the others where a transference of energy took place (pictured below). This transference of energy invoked Nancy, Rochelle and Bonnie's power when Sarah's energy rubbed off on them. Sarah was the outlet, the source of Nancy, Rochelle and Bonnie's power.

Sarah starts bonding with Rochelle, Nancy and Bonnie and starts opening up to them. Sarah expressed, how when she makes wishes, they come true, how her thoughts manifest and become real; and speaking things into existence. Nancy, Bonnie and Rochelle were so blown by it that they didn't believe her, especially Nancy because none of them has ever evoked/invoked like that. None of them ever accessed or tapped into power like that. Sarah starts teaching them about evoking, imploring magick and the elements of it, for example: the power of touch, when Sarah touched her hair and it changed color, the power of channeling energy when Rochelle levitated, the power of words in casting spells; and etc. The film goes on and the girls invoke a spirit. Nancy comes into powers that she's never had before, has no knowledge of it and because of this lack of knowledge, Nancy becomes destructive with her newfound power. Because she did not know what to do with it and also, Nancy was exercising those powers from her lower self. Nancy goes against Sarah and influences Rochelle and Bonnie to do the same, unbeknownst to them that their newfound witchy power was being channeled through Sarah's energy. Nancy uses Sarah's fear of snakes which was not her real fear and illusioned magic (magick that's not real and can appear real due to psychological warfare) to get at Sarah.

Sarah goes to the botanica store owner for help, who takes Sarah in the back of the store which is an altar room. She takes Sarah's hands (another transference of energy) to try to help Sarah invoke spirit from within herself, the true source of Sarah's power. During this part of the film, Sarah's real fear was exhibited which was herself. Sarah feared herself and her power because she didn't grow into her power yet nor was she one with her power. Also, she lacked control of her power and because of this, Sarah would unintentionally harm or destroy with her powers. When Sarah observes the botanica store blowing up and witnesses this big ball of fire, she starts running (running away from herself, running away from her truth) and didn't comprehend it was a manifestation of her fears (illusioned magic). Usually people who run away from themselves end up running into themselves, because sooner or later those people have to face themselves. Sarah faces herself and becomes one with her power in facing Nancy. In the end of the film, Rochelle and Bonnie visit Sarah and confided in her how they lost their power and whispered amongst themselves that Sarah lost her power too. But Sarah did not lose her power because Sarah's power came from within herself. Whereas, Nancy, Rochelle and Bonnie where using tools and resources outside of themselves to harness power; instead of channeling it from within. Also, when Sarah removed herself from the pact, the transference of energy was ceased and this is why Rochelle, Bonnie; and Nancy lost their powers.

It's not the pentagram, candles, herbs and etc. that gives one magick, power and etc. True magick stems from within. When magick comes from within yourself, your soul will guide you on which symbols to use (or create), the proper candles, herbs and etc. to utilized because it will resonate with your spirit. True magick does not stem from those tools and resources but yourself. (Your soul will guide you as well towards the spiritual practitioner to work with.) Also, your energy which is a very important aspect of it. It is your energy that charges a crystal or water, it is your energy that infuses an herb, it is your energy that magnifies the light of a candle, it is your energy that stimulates a symbol, it is your energy that invokes spirit; and etc. All of it comes from your energy, that is the source and where true magick stems from. It's all within yourself.

When you rub your bare feet on carpet and touch a doorknob, you get an electric shock. The electric shock did not come from the carpet nor door knob but you. When you rubbed your feet on the carpet, you stimulated a static charge through your energy and touching the door knob is a transference of energy through you, which caused an electric shock. When doctors need to revive life, they have to apply electrical current, shock a person to revive them. Basically applying electricity to electrify a person's energy. Your energy is important. Talk and feel your neck, you will feel your neck vibrating when you are speaking. That vibration is energy and this is where the power of speech comes from. Your heartbeat has its own rhythm, a frequency of your energy.

It's all within your energy and channeling your energy to implore magick, invoke and manifest.

Channeling your energy is to channel your inner God and Goddess towards your Spiritual Health, accessing the divinity within yourself and the Divine with Divination and discovering the nature of who you are beyond the physical world with Metaphysics.

Jennifer Lopez Cast to Play Queenpin 'Griselda Blanco' in HBO Biopic, Amidst Threat of Lawsuit from Blanco's Former Lover

Posted On: August 18, 2016

In an upcoming HBO biopic film, Jennifer Lopez is cast to play the role of queenpin, 'Griselda Blanco.' J. Lo will be multi-tasking with this movie project, by being both in front and behind the camera as a producer.

Griselda Blanco was known as the 'Queen of Cocaine' and  the Colombian 'Godmother.' Blanco was a notorious female drug lord  between the 1970s and 1980s, when she was one of the first women to take part in drug trafficking. In 2004, Griselda was deported from the US back to Columbia after serving 20 years in prison. Blanco was also violent in her dealings, with killing the men she either dated or was married to. All of this caught up to the queenpin, when she was murdered in 2012.

There is one surviving man who was Griselda Blanco's lover and his name is Charles Cosby. He is not too thrilled about this HBO biopic movie and threatened to sue.

Referencing an article from TMZ about the matter, Cosby revealed if there any any references of him, even his name being mentioned, he will sue. He made it very clear that he wants nothing to do with the movie. And what would be the reason for that? Well, Charles Cosby is producing his own biopic film of Griselda Blanco called "Hustle" and was part of a narrating documentary about the drug lord called "Cocaine Cowboys 2." So, the threats he is making is more about politics and his interest to spearhead and launch his own Blanco project. Instead of being mindful, by networking with HBO and J.Lo to make a classic movie happen and bank on some benjamins, Cosby would rather do his own thing. There is nothing wrong with that either but in this case, it's more business than personal.

Charles Cosby noted to TMZ that he's not a J. Lo fan and does not think she can play the role of Griselda Blanco due to her lack of street cred. What?! Huh, we're talking about Jenny from the block from the South Bronx here and who is better than to play this role but Jennifer Lopez. She literally embodied and tapped into Selena's spirit to play her in the 1997 biographic movie. And J. Lo has played some challenging roles, elevating herself from the stage as a musician to become an actress.

HBO nor J. Lo has not released any statements about Charles Cosby's peril of threats to sue. Back in 2014, it was reported a Griselda Blanco film project was in the works called, "The Godmother" to be played by Catherine Zeta-Jones. It received several backlash and controversy, one of them was Griselda Blanco's portrayal on the big screen was being whitewashed and discriminative to the Hispanic community. It's a controversy which is still spewing today and in May of this year, Catherine Zeta-Jones came under fire again for trying to play Blanco's role.

Whatever the case may be, Jennifer Lopez is still the best woman and person for the role. J. Lo conveyed to The Hollywood Reporter her fascination with Griselda Blanco's life for years, in spite of her being a corrupted and complicated woman. Playing this queenpin is a challenge but only J. Lo can embody and project, the spirit and soul of Blanco by intriguing the audience. She did it before and she can do it again.
