Good Morning! I hope all is well! Today I am writing to you from New York. The weather is finally reflecting summer, and I must say, this is my favorite time of the year! So much is going on right now, physically and spiritually on Earth. All that you see, hear, and feel can be very overwhelming. Looking for signs, searching for answers, yearning for love is all good and well, but I think what you may be looking for is God. Every species, even non-living entities has a root or foundation of some kind. It is needed so one does not completely collapse under the weight of its own being. Today I invite you to begin thinking about how you can create a stronger foundation for yourself. Maybe it can be through cooking and eat more often from home, or celebrating your accomplishments and realizing how you contribute to others. Spiritual tools such as prayer and fasting regularly are a great habit to begin. The concern isn’t so much how, but when? When are you going to decide that you are in control of your own state of mind and happiness? Do you find it amazing those who are infirmed or imprisoned can somehow find a tremendous amount of gratefulness and peace within a dire situation? So why not those of you who are walking, breathing, and living freely every day find the will power and the motivation to add life unto your life? Those of you who know inside of you dwells a spirit of love, creativity, compassion, and greatness; Will you begin to manifest this in your everyday life? Act as the person you know you are? God is calling to you, speaking to you, and not from a far off place, but nestled safely in your heart, in your very being. May you center yourself, quiet yourself, calm your jumpy spirit and simply tell God, I Am Here.
Blessings, Love, and Well Wishes! Until next time!

"To the men trying to right their wrongs and open themselves to healthier relationships in the future."

Hello! I hope all is well! I am writing you today as I begin to post more book reviews,
and I thought to start off with The Unspoken Feelings of A Gentlemen, written
by an author who felt the urge to share a message to men and to the women who love them. The book was an easy read and I was able to finish it in one
evening. At the time I was frustrated with a situation I found myself in, where
I wasn’t connecting to someone I really wanted
to connect with. So much so, that the blocks I was coming against inspired me
to understand men more. Not so much in a romantic way or with any end
goal in mind other than to expand my consciousness as it associated to men. Before
this, mainly in regards to romance, I always related to men from a standpoint
of what I could do for them or possessing the mentality that there was a right or wrong way to make a connection. Having
this narrow minded ideal of how to relate to men often times left me feeling
rejected, ashamed, and with the self-judgment that I must of done something wrong when a relationship or connection with a man in my life had failed.Mostly because I was taught there was always something I was suppose to do as far as pleasing or attracting
a man. If I were to explain it further, I often learned to write men off as shallow and only needing X, Y, or Z. to be satisfied. Yet the
men I was coming across weren’t that simple. They were complicated, spiritual, and contemplative,
each having different characteristics, with personalities that were vast and
interesting.I began to think to myself,
it can’t be true that men are merely simple minded beings.
"Now my silence has a voice. Expressing myself has become an escape for me, a necessity. Vulnerability is something of which I am no longer afraid. I have decided to start being real with myself and the people in my life."
~From Unspoken Feelings of A Gentlemen
So when I came across this book it was very refreshing,
mainly because it offered an acknowledgement to what most would refer to as a women’s intuition. An acknowledgement
of, “Hey, you had a hunch that something more was going on with the man in your
life, and I’m here to tell you there was.” The author is just amazing at
conveying this sort of message over and over throughout the book in a very
unique and creative way. It is not a book about what a women needs to do, other
than to be herself, which I found very refreshing and affirming. Yet, the heart
of the message was to the men and acknowledging their complexities, there spiritual
being, and the often times decades of pent up feelings the world had conditioned them to
ignore. The author generously shares his personal experiences about the women
he very much loved, but admits he wasn’t there
as far as being ready to accept those feelings and see them through in a healthy way. He also tackles a myriad of issues from fatherhood, celibacy, to
marriage. Reading his perspective on all of this allowed me to feel even more of a compassion towards men, which I was already
feeling, and my conversations with those close to me began to change as we
found ourselves literally saying that we wanted to understand men more. Upon finishing the book I was hopeful once again that I could enjoy better experiences in the future, along with the realization that I couldn’t imagine my healing journey as complete without some genuine understanding and compassion for men. So I’m very thankful
for this book. It was very insightful and artistically written, I would definitely recommend it to
anyone who has gone through any heartache, or who would just like to get
some insight on men in general.

to accept who you are is when the journey of knowing yourself begins.
That day is when validation through others becomes something of the
past, and loving you and evolving into who you were made to be will
