Breaking Free: Turning Negative Thoughts into Positive Power

Image
 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. This old-school survival tactic, while once crucial, now often holds us back from embracing the joy and

Belonging To A Conscious Community (Tribing Up)

Image
Peace FAM: I spend a lot of time thinking about our communtiy, and how to best structure it so that we can build something that is lasting. I truly believe in legacy, and understand that I am responsible for the next 7 generations at least. This is why I get up and do my show, because I am trying to add value to my community and build it. For me this is a lifestyle and as uncomfortable as it can be sometimes I know that it is my responsibilty. I have to reach out and build with like minded folks, as well as battle with some that disagree, but the conversation must be waged. I believe that if we do nothing we are condeming our futre generations to continues servitude to a system that will always put their needs last. We must develop structures that will defend our future, and demand from the powers that be, what is owed to us. We must build instituitons that are for us, and controled by us if not, we will end up as a foot note in history. Human beings are social creatures, and that is

The Path Of The Warrior

Image
Peace FAM:  Sitting here on this beautiful Holy Day that has been set aside for one of our Ancestor Martin Luther King, I can't help but to reflect on the warrior path. There are many misconception about this concept, and many people are probably confused on why I would write an article talking about the warrior path & mentioning MLK. For me personally The Honorable Martin Luther King is a perfect example of  a person on the warrior path. Most of us define the idea of warrior by what we can do, but the warrior path is about what we won't do. I have been quoting Amos Wilson for the last few weeks, and I ran across a definition that he gave for manhood, but this definition is not limited to men. This idea that he puts out is good for warriorship as well. He states that "being a man is the mastery of impulses", I believe that this is the key to warriorship as well. Being able to face pain, and a ability to suffer are all good traits for a  warrior, but all of them

Folktales As Tools Of Liberation

Peace FAM: I'm sitting at my computer preparing for my presentation to the village and I just need to get a few thoughts down, and figured I was over due for another post on my blog. It has been a long time since I have sat down to actually write, I am use to talking to the cameras as I stream my thoughts, but at this moment I need to organize my thoughts, and prepare to talk to my larger family. It is always a humbling thing for me to be invited to share my perspective. In order to get my thoughts across in the proper way I want to use this platform to construct a discussion about the power of tales, myths and legends, and their importance to our freedom struggle and personal growth. Folktales are just stories that have moved beyond the first teller of the tale. Folktales are born when a story grows beyond the original teller. The tell and the characters of the story grow and move into the pantheon of the people from which the tell was told. These stories act as conduit of info

The Microbiom & Mental Health

Image
Peace FAM: I am playing catch up but it is cool. I have a couple of moments before I see the doctor so I decided to pen this article. On this video part one and two I get into the little information I have been to gather on this thing called the microbiom. I at first thought that it was about the gut, but the microbiom covers the entire body and can even influence behaviors. This organ or system in our body is estimated to have 100 trillion cells all working with in our bodies. These cells work according to what we put inside of our body by way of eating and drinking. They effect our thinking by releasing neurochemicals that affect the mood, as well as make shifts in our personality. There have been studied that connect some mental illnesses to the second brain which is another name for the microbiom. I had to do this article so that we could look at the information and decide for ourselves if this is legit. They are still researching the microbiom and it is a relatively young fi

Let's Take It To The Next Level - 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge

Image
Peace FAM: It is time that I move to another level. I have spoke enough about sacrifice, suffering, embracing the bitter. Now it is time for us to see these things totally in action. I have decided to commit to completing another 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge with a fast. It is about to get hard. This time I will not be doing the intermittent fasting I will be doing a straight liquid fast. The goal is to demonstrate that it can be done, to help me workout some of my personal fears, and to solidify my vision for GNJ. I am not playing with this platform I have been blessed with, and I am not playing with this product that the Ancestors have dropped in my lap. I decided to call it the Gye-Nyame Quest. Now what I will have to workout is a system that will help me make it through the rough times. I will follow everything that we do within the challenge, plus the fast. My system will look like this: Week 1 Breathing Exercise Toast Movement Cold shower/ bath proverb & folktale of

What Are Your Duties

Image
Peace FAM: I greet you on this great Kuumba day. We lift our glasses and  toast our ancestors, for me this is a duty. This is something that I have to do, a duty. One early morning before the toast I was listening to NPR and heard a story about the youngest prince of England's role family. He stated that him nor none of his siblings want to step in the role of King, but would fuflill their duty if called upon. My mind started working, and I saw a direct connection between duty and purpose. So now I have to ask you what are your duties. If you have a purpose you must have duties to accompany that purpose. I am running into many Nia driven people who have no duties that lead them to their purpose. They can define their purpose to perfection, but when asked what duties accompany the purpose they fall short. Family take some time and build some duties that will help move you toward fufilling your purpose. Checkout the video and let me know your thoughts, don't be shy leave some c

No Half Way Dreams

Image
Peace FAM: Dreams are like wings in our youth, that help us soar through life and over problems, but if dreams are not pursued they become weights that hold us to the earth in our older years. I have dreams and had them when I was young, and often received the advice to put them on the back burner while I pursued more practical matters. I was told to get real, and as i got older and met with the bitter in life, I began to believe what I was being told, eventually we all run into major issues, and set back that appear to be holding our dreams hostage, and many of us like myself crack,and "get real". Family I need to stress that there is no such thing as half way dreams. Our dreams can not inhabit the backs of our minds caged by circumstances. They were meant to fly, and if we don't invest our heart and soul and pursue them they will soar out of our site. Leaving us to our real life based in someone else's idea of reality. We have to begin to rekindle the fire if we

The Power Of Bitter

Image
Peace FAM: The bitter parts of life help build us up, and prepare our body and mind for the goodness that eventually will come. We have been trained to avoid the bitter. We are told not to complain, and to grin and bare it, we must monitor what we say and how we say it to make sure we don't spit out bitter words. We are surrounded by food that are packed with sugar and if we go to any grocery store we will be hard pressed to find something bitter. We have advanced humanity to a point where we can possible go a life time and never experience bitter word, or bitter food. We have reached the pinnacle of civilization, for now we can shelter the members from all the bitter that life has to offer. This process is complete but we have lost a lot in this trade, and many may want to go back and make some adjustments in our lives. Bitter helps us grow, and it strengthens us. It helps get our creativity unstuck, just like physical bitters jump starts our immune system, and stimulate digest

The Power Of Your No

Image
Peace Fam: Today we had a powerful segment leaning toward you and your personal power. In my time on this planet one of the hardest things for me is telling people no. Usually I feel guilty, and feel I have to explain my reasoning behind the no. I know that I am not the only one having this issue, many of us have ruined our lives, or may have put ourselves in compromising situations because we don't feel good about sharing our NO. I want you to understand that when you say no, you are sharing. You are sharing who you are and your values, and should stop allowing individuals to pull you from that. We all have boundaries and we need to learn how to enforce them, and using the "power of no" is one of our weapons for doing this. When we say no, we are being honest about our thoughts, and being true to our feelings, but we feel that we need to justify them. I am here to tell you that you do not. Those that can not accept your no, are revealing something to you. Something th

Discussing The 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge - Daily Toast Umoja 619171

Image
Peace FAM: Today we reviewed all of the information, and reflected that all of the system we spoke about in the previous week, all work together in Unity to make you a living being. Our bodies are perfect models for today's principle and when we take the time to study our bodies we can move toward mastering our lives and the world around us. I began the discussion today during the toast by discussion the verdict of the recent trial for the murderer of Philando Castile. I shared the fact of how I was not shocked, and then began the discussion about tribe building, developing a culture, and being willing to support those that sacrifice for our communtiy. I have been struggling with the fact for a while that people only do to us (Black Folks in America) what they can get away with. The whole society nows that they can violate our women, mistreat our children, and murder the men and get nothing but a protest. We will notice immediate changes in behavior toward us when individuals a

Water & Dehydration

Image
Peace FAM: Water the most important substance that we can put in our body outside of air. This session was very informative, it demonstrate how far we have fallen from who we are supposed to be. Many of the complicated diseases we are afflicted by in our community may have a very simple solution, drink more water. Water makes up over 70% of our body and is a necessary part of our lives, or it should be. It is apparent that many of us have replaced water with other substances that contribute in no way to our health. These other drinks although they feel good on the palate, are actually wreaking havoc on our internal life. They are robbing of us life, and giving us temporary highs. According to the article I shared many of us are suffering from Dehydration, and this is breaking our bodies down causing sicknesses that are bankrupting us. We receive medicines that help prolong our suffering, but still encourage the underlying ailment to persist. This article also challenges the notion

The Why & How of "That Ambrosia"

Image
Peace FAM: Today let's talk about the benefits of "That Ambrosia", after having all of these discussions about about the microbiome, I felt that it was the right time to remind all of my watchers, and readers that GNJ has developed a product that can help with all of the issues that we have covered. I need to stress that as far as hydration nothing comes close to water, but then to get probiotics, herbs, vitamins, and minerals  into your body. On this video I also talk about the fact we are now able to provide our supporters with their very own SCOBY's so that they can start the brewing process at home. Checkout the video for those that want to skip pass the toast I suggest jump to about 30 minutes and that is about the time the discussion starts. For all those that would like to support GNJ and get "That Ambrosia" click the link. Until the next time....

The microbiome covers basically all of your internal organs. The body is far from the sterile monolith that we have been taught about. These microorganism inhabit and assist you in every step of your life. We need to learn how to take care of them so that we can have a great life. These organism help you break down and get all the nutrients that you need from your food. Family by us learning to work with the system we have been gifted with we can overcome and conquer all ailments. This little bit of information can be life changing if we start to use it.

How Your Feelings Stop You From Growing - Daily Toast 611171

Image
Peace FAM: On this powerful day of Imani, I was hit by the thought of feelings. I know the power of feelings when they are properly directed, but I have been held hostage by them as well. Often times we find that how we feel about some task will freeze us up, and stop us from doing certain task. We have to learn to push past how we feel on some of our quest, because our feelings are helping to hold us back. It is human instinct to want to stay comfortable, we seek comfortable position, and we thrive in predictable situations. Even if the thriving is moving us on  a long train ride to destruction. We hang on to old habits even though we can see that they are making us obeist, lazy, sick, miserable, and etc.. We have to be willing sometimes to jump over how we are feeling and get things accomplished. This is a tough process but often for us to make break throughs we have to do this. Our feelings are a guidance system, not a ruler that should command our lives and limit our actions. Fea

Social Media Responsibility- Daily Toast 610171

Image
Peace FAM: Today we discuss the responsibility of Social Media. I am focusing on all the platforms and how we can use them to move us to where we and others want to be. The most important thing I can share with you is for you to SHARE. If you find something that is motivating Share it. It's just that simple.

Folktales & Proverbs - Daily Toast Nia 69171

Image
Peace FAM: I have been on the grind for years now with, blogging, podcasting, vlogging and now brewing I am finally making inroads on a platform, but I feel I need to explain why I do what I do. I believe that I need to express the Nia that is flowing through me at this time. My purpose is to enlighten, uplift, encourage, and I must be honest to talk. Those that know me, know that this the truth. I believe and have believed for a long time that I was born to talk. I have supported my family with my mouth, I have provided jobs with my mouth, I have raised money with my mouth, and I can continue but I won't. I am driven to do this, and to the dismay of many in my life I continue. I will get up early in the morning to make sure that I am able to reach those that are taking the time out to listen. Hell I will do a show if no one is there, and I fell I need to explain this desire. Because the fact is that I am not alone, many if not all of my readers, listeners, viewers, and drinkers h

Let's Talk About The Life Force - Daily Toast Ujamaa 68171

Image
Peace FAM: You hear me use the term axe' (also written ase', ache'), now is the times for us to build on this concept. Let's talk about this all present life force that coonnects us to everything. This force once it is plugged into will heal us, prolong our lives and attract what we need into our life. Our ancestors recognized this power and called it different things in different cultures, but they all agree that when we learn to control it, we are capable of miraculous things. We have to look deep into this force, and learn to use it to help us in our quest for Peace, Power, and Joy. So tune in family and let's build. Nuff Said I wish you Peace, Power, Joy & 1hunidyears Axe' Axe' Axe'

The Black Woman Public Enemy #1 - Daily Toast Kujichagulia 66171

Image
"All warfare is based on deception" Sun Tzu Peace FAM: Once again I greet you in Peace, Power, Joy & 1hunidyears. I know that many will read the title and come on the page looking for me to go on the attack, since everywhere we look online the Black woman is our oppenent, but you will not get that here, especially today. I chose to start this post of with the Sun Tzu quote, to put it clearly in your mind that we are at war, and if war is about deception then we have to watch the world to see how we are being attacked. Now for years we have thought the Black man was under the gun in America. We have the statistics to prove it, but I want to take some time and question this idea, especially in the light of the quote that is hanging over this whole post. The keyword that I need you to focus on is, deception. How do we know that we are not being deceived by all the information that is being gathered on the plight of the Black man. I know that this may rub some of my
