Harmony in Self: The Liberating Power of Catharsis

Image
Harmony in Self: The Liberating Power of Catharsis In the grand orchestra of life, each individual carries a distinct melody that shapes our journey. However, societal norms often mute these notes, leaving a symphony unfinished. This blog post invites you to explore the power of catharsis – a concept deeply rooted in the liberation of the soul and the embrace of raw, genuine emotions. It's not just about letting go; it's about tuning into the rhythm of your inner world and allowing it to resonate freely. Through poignant narratives and thoughtful reflections, we'll journey into the heart of catharsis. We'll discover how the intentional release of emotions can be a conduit to profound personal growth and a deeper understanding of our authentic selves. From the disciplined silence of a military chant to the liberating shouts of Simba sessions, we recognize the transformative potential of giving voice to our innermost feelings. Yet, this is only the beginning. For those wh

Daily Toast- Imani 430171 'Black seed oil & trusting a process"

Peace FAM: It is good to be up, and writing on this great day of Imani. Today we toast the ancestors, go through our regiment, discuss Black seed oil, and trusting a process. This is one of my better videos, so I want ruin it by extra verbiage on the blog. Check it out and get the message.

Daily Toast- Kuumba 429171 "Coconut Oil"

Image
Peace FAM: Today we will be talking about coconut oil and the power it has to add to our lives. The best part for me is that it is healthy fat that can be converted to energy quickly. I will be increasing the use of it in my personal life, and will be reporting on the effects that I feel. I woke up late today feeling much better and was able to take a cold bath and get into my Gye-Nyame Salutation as well as my Axe' breath. The best part about this process is that i am getting much more in tune with my body and as I grow I will share the information with you to help you along on your Journey.

Daily Toast- Nia 428171 "African Red Palm Oil"

Image
Peace FAM: I must apologize for the late post. Yesterday I fell ill suddenly why I was completing my video and in the process of uploading. The pressure behind my left ear was horrible, and I took the rest of the day to rest. Now i know those that have been watching and reading are like "Brother, how can you fall sick with all of "That Ambrosia" and with you taking those supplements?" The answer is complicated, and I am still looking into it, but I have narrowed it down to some possibilities that I feel that it is important to share with those that will be taking the 21 Day Nguzo Saba challenge. On Ujamaa evening at about 5pm I indulged on a mud pie, and a strawberry pie, that was presented to the staff as a gift. I had two healthy pieces, and at the time it was good. Now for those that are doing the challenge beware of over doing your meals if you are attempting the "Warrior Diet", I figured since I had kept my diet, then the pies would not hurt me. I

Daily Toast- Ujamaa 427171 "You Are not breathing right"

Image
Peace FAM: Food is important, water is more important, but air is the true staple of life. If your air supply stops and you are dead in a few minutes. This is a fact that none can deny. This is why I wanted to do a video talking about breathing and the proper way to breath. We need to pay more attention to the breath, just mastering this one exercise and consciously breathing we can increase our health, strength, and power of our immune system. Many of us our suffering from the effects of improper breathing, and dehydration. If we water our bodies, and breath properly we can eliminate the need for many of the supplements and drugs that we are taking. Our bodies are malfunctioning because we have not been handling the basics. Breathing correctly is the key, if we perfect this skill our life would jump by leaps and bonds. When we bring air into our body it enables us to transform the food we eat into the energy that we need to make it through the day. We must become conscious of our bre

Tribal Quote- African OpeningsTo Tree of Life

Image
This is one of my foundation books, a foundation book is one that you can open in any situation and find guidance from whatever ails you. The " African Openings To The Tree Of Life " has never failed me and I present this masterpiece to you. I hope that you would take the time and checkout the book that has been driving discussion in GNJ for years. Take the time to be challenged as you wrap your mind around the words of our ancestors.

Daily Toast- Ujima 426171 "Let's Talk Water"

Image
"Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink" Peace FAM: I would like to greet you on this marvelous day of Ujima. If you missed it we a had powerful show last night (Folk Tales For Grown Folks), and I plan to top that tonight with " Tribal Quotes ", which for those that don't know airs every Ujima @ 9pm est. Hope to hear or see you in the place. Make sure you like and press the alarm bell so that you will be notified when ever I broadcast, but beware I live stream on FB every morning to Salute the ancestors with a Daily Toast @ 4:15 am est.. Today's topic is simply water, I believe that a majority of the people that I walk by, work with, and work around may be suffering from dehydration. Most people in America although we are surrounded by water are not drinking enough. We are either drinking the chemically laced tap water, or we just are jumping over water altogether and slurping on all the different varieties of mud that are available to us. It

Daily Toast- Kujichagulia 425171 "Drama cont."

Image
Peace FAM: Once again I am able to stand above the ground  and greet you on this marvelous Kujichagulia. Today we toast our ancestors and continue our talk about drama. Drama in it's self is not a problem, but over dramatazation is the issue. We can not allow anyone to hijack our attention or power, and over drama does that perfectly. It is the tool of the enemy, so watch out. Keep your mind and staymoving toward your goal. We also will begin looking at some herbs and different food you may interested to adding to your personal regiment. Right now, I am working with black seed oil, palm oil, and coconut oil, and of course "That Ambrosia", I will begin talking about these products more and let you know about my personal results.

Daily Toast- Umoja 424171 "Drama"

Image
Peace FAM: I hope this day finds you standing in Peace, Power, & Joy, our true natural state. Unfortunately we are bombarded with anti-virtues that strives to pull us from this natural state into a spiral that often ends in a wreck. One of these your anti-virtues that i will focus on today is "drama". Drama is an inescapable part of life, but the issue is when it is magnified, stressed upon by others, and then thrust into your existence. FAM the truth of the matter is that you do not have to buy into others over dramatization of life events. Actually it will benefit you greatly if you did not. We are surrounded by these over dramatic episodes today in ways that our ancestors never were. We are bombraded with news, timelines, comments, phone calls, tweets, photos, and etc., that strive to keep us involved and a part of needless drama. This need is driven by a lack of attention, and a lack of purpose. the drama springs up and begin to eat at the unity of the group, and eve

Conversations Of Power- Brother John

It will be available for the next 3 days, and then after that it will be made exclusive content for those on the GNJ and those participating in the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge .

Daily Toast- Imani 423171 "Comfort is the enemy"

Image
Peace FAM: Today we toast this powerful day of Imani, and I share many of the experiments that I am working on. We sample different types of "That Ambrosia", I also share some oils that you may want to incorporate into your life, and discuss some of the properties that they may bring into your life. Most importantly we discuss how our belief in the comforts of life's may be the biggest hindrance. Our comforts may be our biggest enemy, that is holding us back from achieving our greatness. I jump into a cold tub of water to make this point. Tune in and check it out, our and let me know what you think. remember to check us out and sign up on our website for some exclusive content @ Gye-Nyame Journey .

Daily Toast- Kuumba 422171

Image
Peace FAM: It is a brew day, and I am far behind. I was supposed to bottle up the ambrosia last night, but I was tired and went to bed. Now I am moving slow, and trying to do the best I kind with this shifting weather. my SCOBYs are holding up but being horribly slowed down by the huge jumps in temperature. I got them bottled up, and know to post up the video and get it to you. I am slowly moving toward the point of making my first shipments outside of Columbus, and I am excited. Today we toasted this marvelous day of Kuumba, and I was able to talk a little bit more about the process of making the kombucha/jun. We also talked about the danger of misdiagnosing our emotional states. When we misdiagnose we get the wrong solution, which means we apply force in the wrong direction. This causes us to fall deeper into the whole of oppression, and moves us into a depressed state. These types of states drain our power, and moves us toward surrendering. It is important that we create situati

Daily Toast - Nia 421171 "The fox that thought he was a Lion"

Image
Peace FAM: "Greatness is forged in the heart, the heat is provided by the trials and tibulations of your life. It is shaped by the 5 tools of our being, cooled by our mastery of the 6 emotions, and formed into shape by our adherence to the 7 Principles." quote from a future book by ha2tim We are up and toasting those ancestors, I want to send shots out to all those that join me for the feed at 4:15 am est on Facebook. I am trying to let yall know that I am not playing with this. Slowly but surely we will change ourselves and by doing that we will will impact the world. Today I bottled some Ambrosia for one of the daily viewers of the Toast on FB. Those who have already placed their orders for this batch, know that you have not been forgotten. I have some of my best SCOBYs working on it as we speak. I will be bottling tonight and they will be ready by Sunday evening, depending on the weather, and how well they are breathing in the second brewing. Now today I cover to

Daily Toast- Ujamaa 420171 "Shame Is Robbing Us Blind" aka "There is nothing wrong with being a non-immigrant"

Image
Peace FAM: "Shame on you", what powerful words, these words can stop some of us in our tracks. We will hear them and start mentally reviewing our actions. Stopping all forward progress until we are able to identify the actions that may be bringing the feelings that go along with these words. Shame can drain an individual, of energy, but what can it do to a people. The feeling of shame blankets us, we feel that it is some shame in being taken advantage off, being robbed, rapped, pillaged, enslaved, and etc.. We as a group may be identifying the wrong emotion that shame comes under. Many of us would place shame under the feeling of mad, but then you must ask the next question, If you are mad then who are you mad with, and for many of us the answer will ourselves. Which is a trap, that will send you us into an endless maze. This is exactly what we have done as a group with our shame, we misdiagnose and wonder why we can't heal. We need to stop, take a breath and get honest

Daily Toast- Ujima 419171 "Help"

Image
Peace FAM: I want to thanks those that are getting up early to check out the live Daily Toast on FB Umoja-Nia @4:15am. It seems that the group is growing. Watch how your life changes as you begin to remember your ancestors. Checkout the video, and let me know what you think.

Daily Toast - 418171 Kujichagulia "Obstacles"

Image
Peace FAM: Today I am feeling under the weather, but in these times this is when I must push on. I understand that because I have chosen to change, obstacles will appear. I have changed my diet, I have changed my sleep pattern, I have changed my video making schedule, I have changed my exercise regiment, I have increased my chores, and I have increased my use of the axe' breath. With all these addition (changes) of course obstacles will pop up. I push on so that those who take the 21 Day Nguzo Saba , are part of the Tribe , or even those that drink "That Ambrosia" . Can see that we push on, as warriors. We will get sick, we will get talked about, we will be hated and hindered but we move on. We learn to change our perception and see this obstacles as steps to our greatness. Checkout the video and let me know what you think.

Daily Toast- Umoja 417171 Sex

Image
Peace FAM: We will look at sex today, and discuss how it can become a point of contention, as well as a powerful tool to move you toward your goal. When seeking SelfMastery, as well as Nationbuilding all aspects of our lives need to help us move toward our goals. Especially those that are necessities, like eating, and sex. It is incredible to me that people will move toward change and leave the same old attitudes about sex in place. Sex is one of the most powerful things that we do in our life time. We literally create life during this act, but we neglect it when it comes to changing our lives. You can create the best life in the bedroom, as well as erect your own private hell. We have to be wise enough to use all of the tools we have been given on our journey to greatness. To overlook the major necessities of life is like trying to build a house with no hammer. Check the video and let me know what you think: Nuff Said Peace, Power, Joy and 1hunidyears

Daily Toast- Imani 416171 Self Deception continued

Image
Peace FAM: We will continue to talk about self deception today, and how our misdirected Imani can hinder our growth. I didn't get to talk about the placebo and nocebo effect, but these play a major part when we start discussing Imani and SelfMastery. Knowing about these can help you break through some of the illusion that have been erected to prevent you becoming the best you. Those of you in GNJ and those of you taking the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge need to look both of those terms up, and begin to apply them to life. Nuff Said Peace, Power, Joy, and 1hunidyears

Daily Toast- Kuumba 415171 Self Deception

Peace FAM: This is going to be short one, but we need to be aware of self deception, that can come with us exercising the power of Kuumba.

Daily Toast - Nia 414171 224 Self Help Process

Image
Peace FAM: Nia is purpose as you all know by now, and it is important that we begin existing on purpose. It appears to me that for the last century, we have carried on as if we are stumbling through life. Of course their have been some bright spots but for some reason we have refused to pick up the flame of those times. It appears that we like groveling in the dark, waiting for luck to drop us an opportunity. Ladies and gentlemen their is no luck, either we change our position or we will stay stuck, and when society no longer needs us we will be discarded upon the trash heap of history. Only remembered because our enemies will have constructed false monument to salute our people. I for one will work against this. I have for the last 20 years  been working on developing organizations, plans, and etc., to help set my people free, but I am beginning to understand that just because you look like me does not mean that you are of me. I have had to change my focus, and begin to look at how

Daily Toast- Ujamaa 413171 (5-6-7 a new way of seeing the world)

Image
Peace FAM: It is time for us to begin looking at the world with new eyes. Understanding GNJ's 567 system and applying it to your life will change the world for you. We are suffering because we have been miseducated about ourselves. We are taught about all the limits, and thrust into a world not of our or our ancestors making. As African people we have existed on the periphery of this world long enough, and it is time for us to grab the cover of our culture. Culture is the soul of a people, and a people without soul are zombies. Walking the earth soulless doing the bidding of their masters. The recent addition of zombies eating brains, and as brainless consumers is recent to the zombie lore. The original concept of a zombie was someone that was put up under a curse and was forced to serve. Although the brainless consumer was a great addition. We are caught in the zombie zone, serving others with no benefit to ourselves, but it is now time for us to change this paradigm. Today is t

Daily Toast- Ujima 412171 Lack Of Rightousness

Image
Peace FAM: Today during Ujima we need to look at the principle of Righteousness . Righteousness is the quality of being morally right or justifiable. Now let's look at this principle from our cultural lense, and take it out the realm of universal morality. This whole universal movement does not benefit us because the Universe in which it takes place is not ours. It is important that we begin to shift our sight to look at all of our principles, and really everything else from our cultural lense. This is important because it helps create a new frame or story that we exist in. At this moment FAM you are immersed in a Universe that is not your own. This limits your power and makes you a servant to the whom ever universe you are in. As a people, but first as individuals we have to change our vibration  to fit into our Universe. The Universe that our ancestors created for themselves, as well as for their children. Until we do this we will forever get Righteousness twisted. At this point

Here Is The Blueprint for Kujichagulia

Image
I am telling you family, when you take the 21 Nguzo Saba Challenge  you will be blessed each day with new information that will begin just popping up. You will be watching videos and out of the blue you will be hit by the principle that you are focused on. You will begin to be able to extract your principles out of articles, books, discussions, and etc.. Here is a video that I had a chance to listen to on Kujichagulia, and it fits with the video that I made this morning. Powerful information, please take some time and check it out.

Daliy Toast- Kujichagulia 411171 "The game is not fair because we are not playing"

Image
Peace FAM In my book "The Player's Pyramid" I describe life as a game, and state that those that know the rules win the game. Today I want to go a little deeper, FAM  the game appears to be unfair to us because we are not playing. It appears that we are not even attempting to compete. By us surrendering to our competition we are throwing the whole universe out of balance. We are required to put up the best fight we possible can, and trust our ancestors. We have to begin to compete, and begin to make other groups feel uncomfortable around us. The game we are born into requires us to act as a group, and get rid of this universal man concept, we have a role and when we don't play that role we expose our future generations to servitude. Now I want to clarify the role, as Black people in America we are a group that has economic, business, political, social, educational, and warfare responsibilities. We have to begin to train ourselves and our children to compete. Many gro

Daily Toast- Umoja 410171 (confusing being scared with being mad is stopping Unity in our communiity)

Image
Peace, Power, and Joy FAM Umoja has swooped in upon me like a hawk, and snatched me up before I was ready. Now I am playing catch up, but I am grateful for another opportunity to greet you on this Great day. It is incredible what new information can do for you. It is like having a blind spot your whole life and someone comes around with a cure, and all of the sudden you can see of the world. I feel that another blind spot has been cleared up for me after  this weekends WHB workshop. I received information this weekend that has changed my view of the world, and if I put it to work it will change the world I'm in. Confusion is a powerful force, that cause us to mislabel and misplace things. In our confusion about our emotions we have mislabeled scared, and misplaced it in the wrong emotions group. This has caused so much confusion for me. For years I thought I was angry, and I get never understand fully why. I struggled with this anger, I fought with this anger, and  I spoke about

Daily Toast- Kuumba 48171 "Who does your Kuumba serve"

Image
Peace FAM: Every now and again your are forced to face some difficult facts, and have to ask yourself some difficult questions. The answers that ring back can sometimes make you sick, but that feeling if faced and embraced can bring about healing. I was hit by one of those questions this morning when I was creating this video. I had to ask who does my/our creativity serve, and the answer that reverberated into my soul was not comforting.  Our creativity has been hijacked and has been put to work to help build and maintain nations for others, and in turn destroying us. We have to do some deep soul searching to figure out how to get control of our Kuumba so that we can put it to work for us. Part of the reason I developed the Challenge  was to help people snatch control of the power that lies in them, and the power to create is something we need to definitely grasp. Our creativity is the source of our wealth, and we will never be able to get to where we need to be without it. At this

Daily Toast- Nia 46171 (Helping Others Find There Nia Through A Challenge)

Image
Peace FAM: I greet you on this beautiful Day of Nia. I am up and ready to get at the world. I have recently launched the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge , and I feel good. I have Identified my purpose and now I have found a mechanism to share it with the world. Click the link and allow me to help you identify your purpose, or if you know your purpose already allow me to help you intensify your pursuit. It is time that we stop living our lives according to other peoples rules. Especially when those others base their economic growth on your failure. Nia is the day where we are able to refocus our efforts and get after what it is we were born to do. Stop wasting the little bit of time you have on this earth making others reality better, future secure. Let's begin to plug into our true power and unleash it on the world. This is exactly why I have developed the challenge . I have spent my life watching my people struggle under others banners, we learned the language and that wasn't eno

Daily Toast- Ujamaa 46171 (Misplaced Emotinal Energy)

Image
Peace FAM: Pardon the lateness, but the files with the effects are bigger than I imagined and this one took 2 hours to upload, so that throws off my time table and I have to wait for a break to post. Break time and today is moving in slow motion for me. I am struggling on the warrior diet, because my body is telling me that it wants to eat, but it is more of a want than a need. Yesterday I ate my meal, and could not finish it. This was shocking because I thought I was hungry then as well. Taming the body is a Herculean task but I am up for it. I know you are reading this wondering what does the warrior diet have to do with today's topic. I am discovering that I am eating to feel emotional lacks in my life. Eating gives me a sense of comfort. Like many of you who will take the Challenge , you will begin to discover new things about yourself, and you will begin to recognize where you are wasting alot of energy. Our emotions are the driving force in our lives, and if we don't l

Daily Toast- Ujima 45171 City mouse or country mouse)

Image
Peace FAM: The word of the day is illusion, for those that may not be familiar with this word it means "something that deceives by producing a false or misleading impression of reality". Today in my discussion about Ujima, I focus on some of the illusions that we are exposed to about the collective, and individual. We have been deluded into believing in the doctrine of the rugged individual. This rugged individual has forces himself to succeed through sheer grit and determination. He or she is a self made wo/man. Let me help you out, this type of person does not exist. Human beings are social creatures and requires the aid of others to survive, even in this modern day jungle. This illusion is weaved to help keep those oppressed trapped. They continue to feed you deluded messages about this rugged individual in hopes that you will model yourself after it. Because as rugged individuals we have no need for community, we have no need for a collective, and we have no need to con

A Tale For Kujichagulia- The wife of Prince

Image
For all you Prince fans out there here is an interview with Prince's ex-wife Mayte Garcia. What caught my attention was the fact that this women set in her mind when she was 9 years old that she would marry Prince was she grew up. Now If that is not an exaple of Kujichagulia I don't know what is. The bigger lesson that came out of this story is that her belief and determination in this dream was contagious. It turns out that this young lady's mother was the one who finally made the intitial meeting possible. Bream Big and Hustle hard FAM. Mayte Garcia's interview on NPR

Daily Toast- Kujichagulia 44171 (Steaming food)

Image
Peace Fam Today was one of those days when I woke up with no idea of what to talk about. I struggle, and then the idea hit me to introduce the world to one of my favorite things, especially with the way I eat, my steamer, so during the conversation I discuss steaming and how to use it to assist on the warrior diet. So here is to a great Kujichagulia, and by the way I owe 14 push ups so as soon as finish this post I will knock them out. Nuff said Peace & 1hunidyears For those interested in seeing the final product from the "steaming" conversation. I Found some quiona after I shut the camera down so in less than an hour:     

Daily Toast- Umoja 43171

Image
Peace FAM We have made it into another week, and I have lost count, but I thank you for reading these post, and following me on my personal challenge, and journey. Hopefully you have found some inspiration, and we have brought some value to your life. Unity is a powerful principle that when applied can conquer any obstacle that is placed before you as an individual. Unity is a principle that has to be exercise individually before it can be effective as a group. Unity empowers us to work as a whole unity, pulling on all the resources of our whole being (IMESP). I have to stress this because many of us look for collective groups, families or tribes, but have not truly unified within. When this happen the group dissolves because all of the members are looking for a wholeness from the group, that can only start from within. Now is the time to begin working on yourself, learning to harness the Umoja force. When you begin doing this you will start attracting other whole people, and from t

Peace FAM Here is another edition of the Daily Toast, This episode I am joined by my lively Daughters Shasha & GiGi. I Try to go a little deeper with the Nguzo Saba Challenge and the order of events for those that will participate. I am going to develop a checklist of things to do and you can decide for yourself how far down the rabbit whole you want to go. The deeper you go the more powerful the effect will be for you. In short each day will begin with you waking and focusing on the principle of the day, making sure that you state it aloud, and focus on what type of day it will be for you.

The drinking of water is the most important part of this ritual. Water is the key to health and if we are not

Peace FAM We are approaching the launch date of the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge, and I am getting hyped. I not only get to share "That Ambrosia" with my family, I get to share simple information that can change peoples lives. Today I focus on the Warrior Diet, and why it should be applied. Intermitten fasting is natural for human beings, and very healthy when applied properly. The goal of the warrior diet is to get your body to burn the best fuel, which is the fat that may be causing you trouble. By applying yourself it is possible that you will be able to drop a pound a week, by just changing when you eat. When you add the African Heritage diet, Axe' breath, daily healthy toast and the light workout taught to you for the challenge, we are talking life change.  So the only thing i can say is let's build!!! Warrior Diet fast five diet Fast 5 video African Heritage Diet Study African Heritage Diet
