Have you ever prayed to be shown what to do, what path is for your highest good? So have I. People consult me for this. Sometimes, the answer is as simple as listening to our bodies. I had a major lesson in this very recently.
When I learned that #Oprah was going on tour with #TheLifeYouWant with her #Trailblazers #Iyanla, #Deepak and other amazing people, I knew I had to be there. In the midst of a financial restructuring, I questioned how to manage this.
A couple of weeks before #Oprah’s tour came to Miami, an enlightening thought dawned: Go as press. With my BlogTalkRadio.com/GoddessHeartNetwork show, MIRACLE MANIFESTING MONDAYS – live at 8 pm EDT and archived – I qualified.
This realization occurred when the #SeedFoodandWineExpo, came to Miami a few weeks before Oprah. What a great place to find people for a hand-picked Resource Section to add to one of my new books, VIM VIGOR VITALITY VEGAN! I called to interview #AlisonBurgos, one of the creators of this new veggie festival.
As a side note, you know I had to laugh at the various ways to say the new “v” word — “vegan,” – seed food, plant-based food, non-animal nutrition, anything but vegetarian.
One evening, I whipped out my Droid and applied as press to attend #TheLifeYouWant. Waiting a few days, I accepted the opportunity to do readings as a participant with the #MetaphysicalChapelofSouthFlorida at what I was told would be a big Body, Mind, Spirit Conference Fundraiser. When I was accepted by Oprah’s team, I was ecstatic.
Without thinking, flying high on energy, I called a friend to go with me, as I needed a ride. I jumped to the conclusion I would be given two press passes, as I usually had been in NYC, when I produced, hosted and sometimes guested on my public access TV show. In my zeal to be fair, I texted the head of the Meta Chapel, explained the opportunity to be at the Oprah event, and canceled my agreement to work with him on Saturday, something I normally would refrain from doing.
Are you seeing some of the glitches in how I handled this?
Imagine my chagrin when I was informed via email from Oprah’s team that I was granted only one press pass. What to do? Here again is where I could have waited a moment, communicated fully both to the head of the Meta Chapel and to the Oprah team. I communicated, yes, though less than thoroughly.
I listened to my head, rather than my body or my heart. My friend had already told me she would definitely get me toMiamion Friday. The main event was Saturday, when I had previously accepted a gig. It never occurred to me to ask her for a Saturday ride if she were without a pass, as, to me, that would be taking advantage of her. Later, by the way, she told me she would have done it.
My head said, “Two in the hand is worth one in the bush.” I re-accepted the Meta Chapel gig. For a few days, energetically, me, who is usually buoyant, peaceful, energized, felt, instead, conflicted. I prayed to know what was in my highest good. I communicated fully to Oprah’s team and to Meta Chapel. A couple of days later, I was granted two press passes for both days. What to do?
I asked three friends to tune in for me. After a day or so, two told me to go to Oprah, as I had loved and respected her for years. The third told me to go for the finances, that I would not meet Oprah this weekend, and would another time.
At another event, suddenly I get “Do what’s the easiest.” I stayed with my plans. In my core, however, I wanted to be with Oprah, Iyanla, Deepak. This was my essence. I was elsewhere, instead.
It ended up I was granted THREE passes for Saturday. I gifted friends with press passes, who had a joyous time. True, I helped a bunch of people at the Body, Mind, Spirit event, kept my word. Nonetheless, my insides were spinning another tale.
What did I re-learn? LISTEN TO YOUR INNER CORE. I teach this. I thought my prayers were being unanswered. Afterward I realized I was being answered loudly and clearly via my own body, something I walk, dance, run around, and exercise in.
Yes, I have worked on myself, cut cords, done the forgiveness Ho’oponopono, had realizations, released, nurtured new relationships, evolved, grew, took a few moments as my energy stabilized again. Life continues.
To live the life we want, be attuned and pay attention to our insides. Whether my choices would be considered correct or incorrect for any reason by anyone else, the bottom line is I, like you, like all of us, have to be true to our essence. Being true to our core is doing what’s in our highest good. What is in anyone’s highest good benefits all of us.
By the way, Friday at Oprah’s event was fabulous! I benefitted immensely from that day alone. My friend told me I knew this stuff, so it was fine for me to be doing something else Saturday. Sometimes, whatever you do, you win. Creating win-win-win is also living the life we want.

My first protest was in the 1960s. A PEACE PROTEST to end the Vietnam War. There we were inWashington,D.C., having been somewhat trained by the organizers to stay peaceful, even in the face of opposition by then-President Nixon. I was gong to be a Marshall until the organizers discovered I wore contact lenses.
“We have heard there may be tear gas,” they told me. “This could blind you with contact lenses.”
Instead, I became another peaceful passionate protester, at the end of the column. Yes, then-President Nixon had soldiers tear gas us, as we LEGALLY and peacefully protested what we felt was an unjust war, fought for reasons other than the ones touted by the media. Because of how many people protested this detested war, finally, the war ended.
Bring this forward toFerguson and other areas of discord. YES, PROTEST!!!! DO IT PEACEFULLY!!!! Refuse to let “agents provocateurs,” however they may masquerade as holding the same mindset of the organizers, ruin what is a much-needed voice to change a milieu of things, in this case, racism.
Yes, I said it! It is a true word. We have many brands of racism in this country, from one coloration to another, from people of a particular coloration among others with similar colorations. This is why we also need designations as biracial, multi-racial, and the like. We are a black, brown, beige, red, gold, yellow, white and whatnot color society.
What is it among some white people that has them think they can insult and treat people of any other background, ethnicity or nationality with disdain. Who are you???? I do not care whether you call yourselves Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Zoroastrian, Yoruba, spiritual, agnostic, or anything else. WE ARE ALL CONNECTED.
Anyone in a protest, whether about creating racial equality, peace, woman’s rights, gender equality, sexual equality, financial equity, or anything else, be well aware that there almost certainly can be hate-filled, scared, raging people facing you with guns, all of whom have their own issues. These folks are unlikely to be the most enlightened of people. Also be aware that in your own group can be people of that same type. That leads to conflagration. Then the doubters can say, “I told you so!” This is the last thing you want. Be wise in your protesting, even if your heart feels fragmented, broken in pieces.
Do we all have to like every single person who crosses our path or about whom we read? Absolutely not. Do I like rapists? Child molesters? No. People who hurt women, throw acid in women’s faces, seek to take away women’s reproductive rights? No. What about women who are careless with contraceptives and make babies unthinkingly? Not especially. Yet, I treat with them human respect, and seek to learn about them, as well as, absolutely, share with and, if possible, teach them. How else can any of us learn and get along together?
Mike Brown’s mom and family, my heart goes out to you. Whatever he may or may not have been doing, he was, to me, murdered. White cops inFerguson, get a grip!!!!! Black-brown-beige — and white — people inFerguson and everywhere, stay centered, and do what has to be done, with intelligence, wisdom, discernment, and passion. We all have to be smart here.
I remember cities burning in the 1960s from racial violence. We do NOT need that. None of us.
Also, there are tons of us of all colorations, backgrounds, religions, spiritual paths, ethnicities who absolutely love one another, who glory in the huge diversity of the human genome, who are amazed and delighted in our uniqueness and commonality. WE ARE THE MAJORITY. If not yet in fact, then in Spirit. WE ARE PREVAILING!!!!!
I give thanks that President Barack Obama, who so many people call our first black president, who I call our first biracial president, is in office now. How that man manages to stay calm amidst the rampant racism that greets him from some of the members of Congress and elsewhere is a testament to his centeredness, wisdom, intelligence, heart, enlightenment and more. Do I agree with all his decision? No. So what? We can all learn from him.
Let us all stand together so we all learn, evolve, understand one another. It is time for our species to grow up! Wake up!!!! We have a planet to save. We all have to uplift our vibration, emotional IQ, the very frequency at which we vibrate, so that this kind of ignorance is truly a thing of the past.

When did you most recently truly acknowledge yourself? When did you feel gratitude for being alive and sentient? When did you celebrate your Sself (Soul Self/Personality Self) and others?
When anyone refrains from acknowledging herself and others, giving appreciation and gratitude for both the seemingly small stuff as well as the mega big-deal things, plus forgetting to celebrate being alive and sharing this with other, one diminishes her life and her soul.
This is brought home to me regularly, especially when birthdays roll around, whether mine or someone else’s.
We all benefit from saying THANK YOU!!!! constantly, even when our internal dialog may be trumpeting another tune. At these times, remind the internal dialog – the ID – to be quiet. Delete it. Surround it with love. Say THANK YOU to the ID for sharing, then move on.
With THANKING ourselves, the Universe, the ALL IN ALL, for our lives, our experiences, our initiations, our blessings, we open ourselves to the wonders of multidimensional experience. Refraining from GIVING THANKS, may be inadvertently thwarting and narrowing our energy bodies, pushing away the very essence of life we may be craving. Having a vibration of love, gratitude, appreciation, openness to miracles, actually shifts our cellular structure, clears karma, shifts DNA, clears our brains, alkalinizes us, and sets up a zone of possibility from which we and those around us benefit.
Yes, when going through a tragic time, dealing with the passing on of a beloved, a divorce, what-have-you, absolutely have and express your feelings. Be completely real about what’s going on within you. Feel. Express. Allow yourself to go through this thoroughly. Also, find the GOLDEN LINING. When my dad had passed away, it took me gazing into my mirrored eyes for quite a while, seeing a haggard woman looking back at me, until, with deep seeing and allowing, I finally saw some Light within those eyes, teary as they were. I focused on that, as I went through a very deep mourning period.
Find the Light. Acknowledge anything else. Where we focus, there is where we go, whether it’s to the stars or flat on our face. Love is stronger than any other feeling. Love with enlightenment, the real thing, is beyond words, though we all have plenty of these with which to give an approximation of the actuality.
I ask you to acknowledge yourself and everyone else in your life, including the very experience of being alive now. Feel with all your heart, soul, body, mind oodles of gratitude for who you are, your gifts, talents, lessons, and those people in and out of your life. Celebrate yourself and everyone else. This shifts both your personal vibration, your frequency rate. This leads to ascension of energies from the third to the fourth and fifth dimensions.
As well, this practice literally shifts the paradigm of the planet.
Yes, it does!
With this, I wish a happy birthday of all my Cancerian sisters and brothers, as well as to all the other astrological signed sisters and brothers. May you shine brightly!!!! May love, prosperity, health, creativity, spiritual connection, beauty, passion, compassion, peace, excitement, delicious nutritious food, lovemaking, children, family, inner sourcing, and everything else your soul asks of you be yours, ours, everyone’s.
Yes, this is also my birthday month, and I am filled with the gratitude, blessings, happiness of my being.
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!+
Many blessings to you and all of us. Thank you very much.

Anyone who has achieved mastery and wholeness in her or his life is both an inspiration to us all as well as a shifter of the Earth paradigm, plus, an enhancer of the very vibration at which we all operate. Such a person, such a Light, was the lateGREAT Dr.Maya Angelou.
Yes, we are all affected by anyone who surpasses conditioning, conditions, situations, rises above it all, and surrounds us with her or his essence, humor and love.
I first read I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings many years ago, and was transported by the eloquence of the language, the essence of the “story,” and the very person herself who wrote this, as yet a young woman. What a wonder we had among us! I was thrilled and in awe that such a person existed.
The week before Dr. Maya passed, I had taken Mom and Me and Mom out of the library, and was reading it. When I heard that Dr. Maya had cancelled her appearance at an event honoring her, my heart pinged, and I knew she was seriously ailing. It was totally unlike her to refrain from participating in anything positive that moved consciousness forward. When I then learned a day or so later that she had passed on, all I could do was cry, mourn and bless her.
A glorious gorgeous grace-giving goddess Phenomenal Woman, Dr. Maya Angelou has passed on. She was tall in stature, beauty, brilliance, bodaciousness, creativity, influence, plus plus plus. I, who did not know her personally, miss her.
We are all made better because Dr. Maya lived. Her wisdom impacted me. Her sister-friend-daughter Ms. Oprah Winfrey, learned and spread the wisdom. “When you know better, you do better.” What a cogent way to say something we all benefit from embracing! What a way to perceive ourselves and others, forgive ignorance as we progress, and live in grace, with ourselves and others! Of course, this is different from suffering fools gladly. We absolutely have dominion over who we choose to associate with. I learned this very clearly in another intense way when I was in my 20s.
From her young years, such as becoming the first black and the youngest conductor on theSan Franciscotrolley, plus being female – because she liked the uniform! – to becoming a great mother to both her son and so many more to being a singer, dancer, actress, writer, poet, autobiographer, playwright, political activist, professor, linguist, teacher par excellence, and more, Dr. Maya is already missed, and will continue to be so.
My sense of her, however, would be that she would acknowledge our need to express our feelings, and then she would tell us to celebrate her life and our own, to get involved with our own greatness, and bring forth the good in ourselves and the world.
From this perspective, I urge you, me, all of us, to develop ourselves to the max. Let go of any feelings of unworthiness. Yes, she, as any of us, would go home to her amazing and unique mom, Lady Baxter, for sustenance. We, too, must do that. Go to the Creator, cry when necessary, release and transform your anger – use “The Protective Prayer” here at TheMothersManual.com – take forward-moving actions, and laugh and enjoy a full invigorating sharing life. Refrain from wallowing.
You have magic in you. We all do! Honor Dr. Maya Angelou in your own way. Be sure to awaken the glory and gorgeousness and god/dess-ness in you, too!!!! Now is the time. Live your authentic soul truth with love and blessings.
Many blessings to you and all of us. Thank you very much.
