There are many battles we fight as humans.
We are influenced by media, politics, religion and create wars against each other.
However, there is one battle which we all face but many do not acknowledge, care to face, or even if tackled may never conquer. The great battle within.
We victimize ourselves against life’s tragedies, circumstances, or just the hand we are given out of our control at times although most self inflicted.
We dehumanize one another when we differ in opinion. Finding fault in others beliefs just because they don’t suit our own agenda/ narrative/identity.
We are all just doing the best we can. Leaning on what we’ve been taught and our own discernment based off of where we stand in life and our own experiences thus far.
The inner battle is the one to master. The greatest fight. Face yourself before you attack or pass judgment onto another.
It’s so easy and (weak) to focus on another’s faults making your beliefs better or above another’s. Superiority is unbecoming of anyone who wears it.
It’s hard and takes (strength) to look at and acknowledge our own faults and weaknesses.
The greatest war and the most important to conquer is the war within. Facing your fears, guilt, shame, pain and turning them into faith, hope, acceptance, and love. Alchemy of the soul.
While it’s true we can’t save everyone – we can save ourselves. The mastery of self; mind, body, and soul.
The one who stands in truth with pure intentions always wins in the end as they stand on strong foundation which endures every storm for all eternity.
Do you know how penguins know it is time to migrate?
When they are walking and the ice beneath their feet starts to break.
They are walking along as usual, and they feel the ice begin to crack.
This incident, this minuscule and extraordinary event, affects the life of millions of penguins, which, from that moment forward know the time has come. It is time to depart to even less hospitable places, so that they may proceed with their yearly venture of procreating.
It has been like this for millions of years. The ice cracks, and they depart only to return much later with their young, one more to add to their species. It has been like this for millions of years.
And so it will continue to be so.
Man has intuitive skills. He can feel when it is time for things to happen even before the ice breaks beneath his feet. Even before things happen, human beings are able to feel that the time has arrived.
And it has been like this for millions of years.
Man, however, makes judgments. He chooses to believe that he cannot do things or, even if he can, that intuition is not a good thing.
So he covers things up. And so he becomes blocked.
Man blocks his most magnanimous aptitude, his ability to walk before time and ensure that everything happens as it is meant to happen, simply because this is what he has perceived.
Man has a tendency to block out not only this skill but almost every other skill that he possesses.
“I can’t do it.”
“I don’t deserve it.”
“This is too good for me.”
These are expressions that, repeated a million times, are likely to become true.
Believe in your intuition. It is powerful and life-changing.
You may not believe anything else, but at least believe in your intuition.
It may not change the world, but it will probably change YOUR world.
And that in itself is already more than enough.
A message for the collective:
Your wishes are being granted. All that you want is yours. When you align with spirit you align with grace.
Surrender your ego and disentangle your heart from societal conditioning based in fear, dominance, greed, victimization – of getting ones personal desires met at any cost. Release control and surrender to the universe.
Trust what is destined for you.
You don’t have to dominate or manipulate others to attain success. It is enough to align with spirit and trust that your inner work will attract what is needed and you will manifest your higher purpose based on your higher frequency.
You attain what you seek by radiating rather than contriving.
Love & Light
When you love someone, you require nothing in return.
True love is felt and bequeathed.
You have no need to receive. Your love does not fade even when you receive the opposite of what you have offered.
True love is when you simply love.
If you are pleased with what you receive in return, that is wonderful.
But it should not depend on this.
Those who are constantly making demands, who need others to do things in order to be able to love, do not really love.
They have a distorted view of how they would like their love to be.
This is not love. It is an illusion.
Those who require others to do certain things, or say certain things, and be a certain type of person are just being manipulative.
This is not love. It is control.
Those who truly love feel that their love is unconditional.
Theirs is a pure love, genuine and devoid of “ifs” and “buts”.
They simply love.
Just like me.
Just as I love you.
Destiny doesn’t decide the destination
Only the pit stops along the way
We choose how long we stay and where we stray
Rose colored glasses are fun
Beware the length of the run
Divine intervention may never come until darkness covers the sun
Distractions are for the weak
Facing your fears is the trail to the peak
Do you have the technique
Dreams are the gateway to your soul
Flesh desires take it’s toll
Dividing you from your higher call
Quantum entanglement is real
You choose to feel or conceal
Voted the BEST drum sticks in 2019!
CooperGroove has by far the coolest drum sticks I have come across and I have played percussion for 20 years. The non slip grip and grooves is what sets them apart from the original.
I work for a major airline and a coworker of mine had a pair of drumsticks sticking out of her travel bag and I had to learn more. They had grooves in the handle which I had never seen before and a non slip red colored dip on the end. I HAD to play them. I instantly fell in love with the look and feel.
Carlo Cooper, my coworkers brother, is the founder and inventor of this unique patent. He’s been a professional drummer for 30 plus years and is very passionate about his design which makes it all the more special.
The light rubber feel dip alongside the grooves in the handle keep your hands from sweating and allow you to play with ease making them perfect for playing any length of time desirable.
I love to help promote and support small businesses that are rooted in passion and heart. This is one I can stand behind and root for and truly believe in their products!

It’s so easy to get lost in the world around us. Completely absorbed in the politics of life that we get consumed with the external and forget to focus within.
Just a simple spontaneous trip with a friend, change in environment, or time with family can heal so much. We get wrapped up in pain or circumstances simply forgetting all the good that we are and how to just live and enjoy life in the present moment.
You meet no-one on accident and every soul that crosses your path is a blessing regardless of the outcome. We are all each others teachers not one above the other and if you truly keep yours eyes open you can see the love we all carry and the pain and heaviness in this life. We are all connected and here to connect, help, love, and share with one another. There are no coincidences in life. They are signs and I am a firm believer that we all carry messages meant for others at different times and this grand design is not for us to understand completely but to enjoy and aid when we can our gifts to this experience.
I endured a lot as a child and many battles I shouldn’t have had to fight so I shelter mine more than ever to ensure she doesn’t have to fight like I had to. We all have different paths and purposes and the hardest ones are the greatest testimonies. I didn’t ask to become a warrior. I was welded in the fires of life into this strong willed woman who has become this impenetrable force. In a sense it has made me weak because of my fear of love and vulnerability but I learn everyday through my daughter and her father and friends and lights that have come into and left my life how to become less rock – more water. So much gratitude pours out when I focus on everything that I have now and everything I have become and conquered. Battles I’ve won that only the spiritual realm can appreciate and fully know.
My gift to this world comes through leadership, inspiration, introspection, writing, song, and charity and aligning that with God’s purpose for my life.
I know that every time I share and make myself vulnerable in truth I’m helping at least one person to know they’re not alone and giving them some insight into their own life and sourcing the healing they need to grow and evolve into another light to shine for others.
When you feel the heaviness of life look up to God and look within. It is human to feel pain and in that and through it is when we grow and gain discernment.
We often see success and failure in the same light as we do life and death. To succeed is to live and to fail is to die or worse still, to descend into poverty, mediocrity, and obscurity. We become fixated on being the best, succeeding at all we do and yet still fail to thrive. We may find we aren’t happy or healthy. Sometimes finding when you do accomplish your goals you are rewarded with wealth and prosperity but still unhappy. Are you so fixated on acquiring possessions that you have forgotten that happiness and wellbeing begins within you? Are you truly living?
There is often so much going on around us in our day to day that we disconnect from our body, thoughts, and emotions – to such an extreme that we lie to others and ourselves when we answer “I’m fine” regardless of our true feelings or physical health. This is an act of self-preservation, and hides our vulnerability, our weariness, our dissatisfaction, and our (dis)ease – from others. We may be afraid to be honest, because to do so could reveal our weaknesses in a world where we must always be strong in order to survive and succeed. The sad truth is that we may not only be doing it in order to hide our true state from others, but to hide it from ourselves.
Look at your life and determine whether your path heals you or harms you. Are you living a fulfilling life that you love, or are you simply enduring, and dying a little more each and every day?
You have the power to change direction. Reconnect and listen to what your body, mind, and spirit is telling you – to work with them instead of against. Rip off the layers of illusion, the protective armor, the masks, and look at what lies beneath. That, my love, is where true healing begins.
Love creates hope which under extreme circumstances has scientifically been proven to pull humans through unbearable odds… but what is it?
What is love?
The source of your first contact with love would come from your mother then as you grow you witness what you believe it is supposed to look like through your parents and how they interact with you and each other – or whoever raised you.
So wouldn’t we all have different levels we accept as love and what that looks like, feels like? Is it constant? Consistency? Sacrifice?
God’s love is the only pure source we can truly base what the most infinite boundless love to base our perceptions off of but what of that between human connections?
Some love is considered loyalty, time, or what one is willing to give without expecting anything in return.
How long can love truly last when it’s not reciprocated equally? When it’s not valued or respected?
Love for our families or children is different from that of a significant other. How then do you compare?
Inquisitively I have pondered this question and just as we are multi – dimensional beings so is the actual concept of love and should be respected and treated as such. However true that is why do we insist on making what we want or need it to be in a moment instead of surrendering to the boundless phenomenon of what love is?
The more I know the more I realize the less I actually know and as I grow through this journey of life I am humbled by lessons that I continue to learn from all who I have loved and have loved me. So let’s let love stay free because true infinite love cannot be described – defined – or articulated fully, only felt.
“Love and you shall be loved.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
The sun reaches up over the horizon
And the first light of day kisses the snow on the mountain tops
Flying over a vast space of range where no human life seemed to exist I wondered if anyone had ever explored some of the valleys below
A dried up floral design stretched over large spaces of land what used to hold rivers and streams now shallow crevices
Alas the grandest mountain that brings any man to his knees in servitude of its majesty
Small little one off establishments of humans finally passed made me wonder what they did to be able to live so far off the beaten path
The further from youth the more you learn to appreciate nature, solitude, and the more simple things in life like coffee
