What we focus on we create

At some point we must stop acting like children. We must stop blaming others for our mistakes and take full responsibility. We must stop pretending that we cannot hear and that we cannot understand. It has been said over and over, and over again. By me and by hundreds of others. Even Jesus, who truly believed that people could not, and would not understand, said, “as you sew so shall you reap, by your words shall it be done unto you”. Yet we have not listened. We have not taken note. We have simply continued our path. Truly.
I should have woken up petrified, worried and maybe like everyone else on Social media on my knees, with my hands up in the air, and tears streaming down my face. I am a Dominican, after all. But I could not.
I could not be petrified of what I had created. I could not be petrified by the results of my continued thoughts and focus. Our Thoughts create our reality. What have I been thinking of over the past month, hurricane, hurricane, hurricane. I tried to blame someone else on Facebook. But I know no one is to blame, this is not a blame game. You cannot blame a person who is not thinking right, for their actions, they know no better. So, I take full responsibility. Because I read the post, I followed them, I watched the pictures and videos and sometimes I even commented. So yes, I created this, we created it, so why should we be petrified of our creations?
Greg Braden, the scientist said, “the square root of 1% of the population can determine the direction of the entire population.” Well Dominica if seventy-three thousand strong so only twenty-seven people need to believe the wrong things for us to create a category five hurricane. And boy did we believe.
One browse of social media will show how much we believed, how much we wanted it, how we almost begged and pleaded with God for it. When hurricane Irma passed, we wondered why we did not get it. We were prepared for it. We post one hundred thousand posts about it. Some of us increased our Facebook profiles with it. Some even dared God to create, claiming how can man have anything to do with hurricane. Our entire focus was on it. So, we created it. We put so much pure energy in it we made it a category five overnight.
In a room filled with men it was said “Everyman is self-made, he draws unto himself success or disaster according to his thoughts.” All the rich and successful men in the room smiled with pride and winked at each other. All the poor, unsuccessful men walked out complaining. “How can they believe we wanted to be in this situation? This is not my fault. It is theirs.”
Well, it is time to take responsibility for our thoughts, our words and our actions.
When I woke up the next morning I was shocked. Because I had not given Marie much credit, it was just a tropical storm. I quote someone on Facebook, “it just turned into a category five hurricane as it hit Dominica.” But what was more shocking was the amount of people who were suddenly concerned. Everyone who had a friend, who had a friend, who was Dominican was now waiting to hear something. But I was not worried. I was not worried about death because life is eternal, and the best place you can find yourself is in the afterlife. I feel compassion however, for those who must deal with the death of their loved ones. But I was not worried. Because worry is wasted mental energy. Worry is the act of a mind which does not know its connection to the creator. Why worry about whether the people under God’s protection will be protected. It is as if you do not believe that God’s going to do God’s work.
So those who worried began to pray. I do not pray. I give thanks. I think traditional prayer has become an insult to the creator. A bunch of us sitting at home supplicating to God for this and for that. God help them, God save them, God watch over them. God protect them from the hurricane. That is an insult to God, because it implies that God was not doing that before. And because God exist to fulfil your deepest thoughts we inadvertently, with the help of God off course, create situations such as a category five hurricane from which we need help, from which we need to be saved and from which we need protection.jjjj
God cannot uncreate itself, that is change itself from a hurricane into something else. To do that God would have to not be. And there is only one thing impossible for God, that is, for God not to be. So, to change what has been created by the lot of us, a new thing must be created. A new energy of an opposing nature must be released with equal or stronger intensity to dismantle what was previously created. There is no other way.
After the prayers we then began to complain. Why was CNN covering Puerto Rico and not Dominica? Why did the BBC just skim over it? Why the republic, AKA commonwealth of Dominica was called Dominica Republic? When was the aid coming? What was the Government doing or not doing?
But this is not a time for complaining. America is inundated with its own troubles, its own disasters, its own attempts to control its social unrest, its own desires to still, in its weaken position, police the world. America cannot help us now. Neither can the UK. It too has its own territories to deal with. And it has to hold something in reserve based on the way we are creating with impunity. So, it’s up to you Caribbean. Just as the Sierra Leone president declined aid and said we can handle this, it is time for the Caribbean to do the same. It is time to show the world what we are made of. Rather than expect God to drop manner down from heaven and rebuild the roofs, it is time for every contractor, every able body, every concerned citizen to spare some time, take time off to go help rebuild your sister island’s roof. Do what you think God would do, do what you expect God to do. And what you call on God for, do it. We have grown up now. God has given us the tools, it is time to put it to effective use. Give your time, give food, clothing and whatever is possible. What you give to another, you give to yourself ten times. That is the law. We cannot continue to expect big countries to continue saving us from our mistakes, neither can God. God cannot do for us what we will not do for ourselves. It is time to stop focusing on others to do what we are capable of.
This is an opportunity. I am in the UK working on getting this message out, so that we can stop the onslaught on ourselves and on our planet. But I know the heart of the Caribbean, and I know as a people we will rise to the occasion. We will show that we are together, because together we are stronger. We may be divided by water, but we are united in thought. While separation breeds indifference and a false sense of superiority. Unity is strength and power. And when we are together, the power that we possess is unsurpassable.

This is not for the weak hearted

This is not for the weak hearted, not for the simple minded. It is not for those who believe we are separate from God. It is not for those who choose to build their fortunes, their brands and their popularity on the death of our people and the destruction of our planet. This is not for those who are sleep walking through life. It is not for those who choose to go down with the sinking ship, as long as we all go down. It is not for the many, this is for the few. This is for the few who believe in the power of the human being. It is for the few who believe in the power of words and the power of thoughts. This is for the new agers, the light workers, the warriors of light. This is for you.
When a child is young, it runs to the parent at the first sign of distress, and the parent makes it better. The parent makes the monsters go away, heals the hurt, soothes the pain and sends the child out to play again. As the child grows into an adult, it no longer runs to the parent, if it does, the parent reminds the child of all it has learnt, then says “Take care of this, I know you can. This is the opportunity you have longed for to prove you are no longer a child.”
And so, we as a race of people, a human race, find ourselves at this moment in time. We have grown up. We are awake. We are becoming aware of ourselves as more than what we thought we were.
Now is the time to accept that we are no longer children and begin to live like adults do. It is time to accept our divinity and oneness with God and demonstrate that.
It is not time to fall on our knees and pray to a man in the sky or someone or something outside of ourselves to solve the problems we have created. It is not time to run and hide, to cry or to beg God to save us from the consequences of our thoughts.hurricane-irma-noaa-goes-satellite-infrared-rbtop-sept-5-2017

It is time for you to do it. It is time to demonstrate all that you have learnt and all that you have remembered. It is time to be the phenomenal being you are. The phenomenal being, who can calm the ocean with a few simple words, the phenomenal being, who can stop the wind by saying “Quiet, be still”, the phenomenal being, who can become one with the storm and change its direction, the phenomenal being, who can drive away the dark clouds just by being happy, the phenomenal being who can soothe the earth such that it no longer quakes. The phenomenal being who knows that the barrels of water will not turn themselves into wine. This is the time humanity has waited for. It is the time we have prepared for.

This is not the time to talk about which lives matter, when all lives matter. It is not the time to talk about race when in reality, we are one human race. It is not the time to blame, to criticise, to judge or to point the finger. It is time to take responsibility for our part in creating this opportunity. It is time to take responsibility for our world.
No longer can we think, speak and act from a place of fear, an energy which breeds separation creating indifference to the plight of each other. Fear, an energy which gives us a false sense of superiority hence making others inferior. Fear, an energy which makes us right and makes all others wrong. Fear, an energy which has now become the prevailing consciousness on the planet and is the source of all the destruction, we are bringing upon ourselves.
The only way to stop living in fear is to begin to live in love. Love is the most powerful energy on the planet and it is through love we will save our planet and demonstrate our readiness to move into adulthood, to move into a new dimension, to move into a new earth.

Listen to the still small voice that says do this, but don’t do that…

I went to Dorset from Belfast, for a Reiki course a couple years back. And the Reiki master sent me the details and information about booking a room in a guest house. I did not even look at it. I decided to take my car, and sleep in my car to save money. But I had the nagging sensation that I should book the room, but I ignored it. I kept making the excuse to myself, “it’s not that I don’t have the money, it’s not that I am being cheap, it’s just that I want to use my car!”

Well, did I?
I slept in the car for two nights, bought a ten-pound sleeping bag, some supermarket food and felt contented that I had saved money.
Well, had I?
A month later the bill came, I had been charged parking fees for staying over the two-hour limit at a pit stop. A day later another charge came for driving thirty-two miles per hour, two miles per hour above the speed limit. Before that day I never even knew that thirty miles per hour was a speed limit.
I did not calculate it, but I knew that I had paid the cost of two nights and two meals in a guest house.

Again, I went to London, this time I rented a car. I heard when my hostess said I may need to pay the congestion fee. I heard it, but I tried not to listen. I did not want to pay it. I also saw the signs on the road, but I tried to erase them from my mind.
I kept my fingers crossed when I brought back the car, and I said nothing about the thought, that I may have scratched it, just a bit. I went home thinking, “I have been spared.”
Well, was I?
A month and a half later the bill comes, congestion fees, sixty-five pounds. I did not check it, but I am sure congestion fees should be a few pence, and reporting a scratch under the front bumper, that may, or may not, have been my fault may have cost much less.66897-still_small_voice7

We are always blaming someone or something for our misfortune. If not our parents, our children, if not our friends, our haters, if not the blacks, the whites, if not the government, the man upstairs.

But there is no one to blame, but ourselves. It is pointless to try to cheat yourself, cheat others or even cheat the system. Time is the great equaliser. And always balances everything. It is because most of us are so asleep that it takes so long to feel the effects of our thoughts and actions. But as we awaken; you hit the hammer down here and you feel the pain there, almost immediately

Always listen to that still small voice that says, do this, but don’t do that. Because if you do not, you will have no one to blame, but yourself.

Don’t Try to Run Away from your Self…

I met this photographer about two years ago, and if I search my mind, I can pinpoint the exact date and time. I heard his story and I felt an instant connection. I felt that he had come into my life to help me. I took the business cards he gave me. He gave me about five. I never forgot them because they were the only business cards I had seen made from plastic, that you can see through. When I called him he said, “you need a video for your book.” It’s going to cost you X$ and you need to do this, that and the other. I thought about it and became petrified. I had to do all this, step out of my comfort zone, do something I never did before, get people I never met before to do things for me? It was frightening. So, I called him and said, “I change my mind, I will sort this out myself.” I did not communicate with him for more than a year, but I always remember his name and his story.
When I finally stopped being afraid, and knew it was now, or never, I went back to him to get some professional photos done for my website. I went to pick them up, and I hated them. And while I was busy convincing myself, that I was not afraid, I cancelled the photos and told him to delete them. I did not even care about the sixty-two pounds, I had already paid. I would do this myself.
Then he sent me a text. It went like this, “so you’re running away once again. You wanted to look like someone else, and that’s what we did. You wanted us to make you look rich, and pretty, like Lisa Nichols, so that’s what we did.”
And then I became afraid, of being afraid, of repeating the patterns that had kept me back all my life. So, in desperation I called and rescheduled my shoot. I said, “I do not want to look like anyone else, not even the celebrity photo, I showed you. I just want to be me. I am beautiful, and I am rich, so you don’t have to make me look any other way”

You see, if God, the creator wanted the Beyoncé experience he would go to Beyoncé. He came to you because he wanted your experience. Any type of Beyoncé you can be, will be a fake, a copy, an imitation. But you are the original, the authentic, and the new experience.
Most of us stop being ourselves, we stop being who we are, and who we can be, we stop doing what we came to do, because we are so afraid. Fear stops us in our tracks. But when we get out of fear, we see the utter magnificence of who we really are, and who we can be.

So, after the photo shoot we did the video, I tried to run away from two years ago.

Don’t try to run away from yourself, for it will chase you to hell, and back.

Yesterday I was angry with God…

Yesterday, I was angry with God. I thought, why must it be so hard? Is it because I am black, or is it because I am a woman?
And I know that this is not so. Because God does not reward, nor punish people, neither with good, nor with bad. Neither does God punish our enemies on our behalf.
We attract to ourselves, all that we experience.
And some may say, “well you can say that, because you always seem to have something to be grateful for in your Gratitude Journal.” And I would tell them, “I remember the day I spent eight hours in meditation, deciding whether I wanted to be a successful failure, whether I wanted to call up on all my “bad” experiences, my childhood, and make it my life story. I did not! Because I would be living a lie.
When they told me, that as a child I use to wash a basin of clothes by myself, and that I was abused, I did not remember that. What I remembered was, washing a basin of clothes by myself, and listening to the release of Nelson Mandela on my Walkman while tears of joy streamed down my face. That is what I remember, and I would not give that experience up, for a million dollars. Well, maybe one million.
When they told me that I use to eat half a chicken wing as my dinner, and that was unfair, I did not remember that. What I remembered was skipping, not walking or running, up the road to buy one pound of chicken-backs, and having just enough, to buy a chocolate bonbon biscuit, which I enjoyed to the fullest. Then skipping back home, singing, then picking every leaf in the back yard, green bananas, breadfruit and limes from the garden to make the most awesome meals. I would not give up the fact that I have learnt to cook like any master chef for a million dollars. Well, maybe if it was a direct debit.

dsc_7258When I did not see, or speak to my mother, for seven years, such that I could not even call her mommy, on her reappearance in my life, I was supposed to be sad, to be damaged, to never forgive or forget. But all I remembered was, me having imaginary concerts in the backyard, by myself, singing and dancing with the trees, to vintage Soca and conscious reggae. I would not give up the blessing of having an open mind, not hampered by parental influence, for a million dollars. Well, maybe if it was in cash.

When I did not grow up with my father, I was supposed to be damaged. I should have had daddy issues, but I did not. I could not claim that, and not be living a lie. Because even though I have seen my father for a handful of days in my life, and spoken to him even less, I learnt from him one of the greatest lessons of my life. I learnt that I had to take care of myself and not to depend on another to do that. That, is a million-dollar lesson.
When my friend Andrea Marcellin and I use to feed all the members of our church on Sundays, and stay without food, because there was not enough, I should have felt hungry, depressed and poor. But I did not. I remembered the joy of peeping to see everyone clean off their plates, then chatting and laughing until evening service. Would I give that up for one million? Well, maybe if it was a bank transfer.
I should have developed an inferiority complex when they told me that I was neglected. When they said your mother should have taken you to the dentist. But I did not feel that way, even though I never smiled through school, it never stop me finding love. I have been blessed to have been in love and to have been loved. So, I cannot give up my experiences and claim to have a sad story. Because I do not.
Even though they say, “sad story sells,” I have been happy. With the little I’ve had, I have been happy. Many people try to get rich in the hope of gaining happiness, only to realise that money cannot buy happiness. So, when you have happiness, be careful how much you accept, in return for your happiness.
We have come to life to gain experiences, to live, and to be happy, if you have that, you are already half way there. Rise above your sad stories, leave them behind, do yourself a favour, and be happy. It is the best gift, you can give to yourself and the best offering, you can bring to your God.
