 Breaking Free: Turning Negative Thoughts into Positive Power Breaking Free Peace, Power, and Joy to my Family! It’s your brother ha2tim, here to light up that path from the shadows of doubt to the sunshine of self-belief. Today’s vibe? We’re tackling that inner chatter, flipping the script from those nagging negative loops to empowering, positive affirmations that elevate our spirit and guide us toward our true greatness. In this digital age, where the battlefield is as much in our minds as in the world around us, it's easy to get caught up in the undercurrents of negativity. But why settle for survival mode when we're meant to thrive? Let’s dive deep into transforming our mental game, moving from defense to offense in the arena of life. Recognizing the Power of Negative Loops Our brilliant minds, designed to protect us, can sometimes get stuck replaying the worst scenarios.

Daily Toast

Peace FAM: Daily we gather aroung the "virtual community fire" known as the internet to lift our glasse to salute those who came before us. I decided that we needed to create a ritual where we lift up our personal Ancetors. My personal favorite part of libations has always been where we salute those ancestors that we rose from, and I feel that often we overlook them for the bigger names that we learn in our classes. I wanted to set a space and a time where we focused exclusively on our persoanl ancestors.

By taking possession of the days of the week, we symbolicly take control of our time, and with that our lives. We use the power to define to change  the titles of the days of the week into something that we can use to keep us grounded in our culture. Rather than calling on the names that have been given to us we use the Nguzo Saba. This plugs us into our principles which empowers us. For those of us who take this serious, the principles are more than something that we recite during the Kwanzaa. These pr

Peace FAM It is a pleasure to sit  down and struggle through a post, I have not been posting on my blog because of all the shows and other activities. I stay busy building a legacy, it is my responsibility to leave a foundation for those that come behind me. I am striving to blaze a trail. I believe that we owe it to our personal Ancestors to celebrate them daily, and this is why I have chosen to start the "Daily Toast". For those that have Ancestors that they would like to add to our list feel free to send your list to us by texting #dailytoast to 614-300-1875. You will receive a form that will allow you to add yourself to GNJ's phonebook. You also be able to put yourself on our various list and I will take some time to explain the list here: *Our #gnj list is the #dailytoaster list.
