Breaking Free: Turning Negative Thoughts into Positive Power

 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

I'm Moving!!!! Be sure to come visit

That's right I'm packing up some of my content and moving over to the BlaqSpot . Finally I have a spot made for us by us, and I am going to take full advantage. I'm planning to run adds, and introduce new products over there as well. Of course I will keep my territory out here, but I will be doing some real Culture Building on safe ground. Hopefully many of you will come and visit so that you can get some exclusive stuff. I wonder how many people over there will be willing to take the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge . I thought about building a network but the amount of work and skill it would take to get something like that working and keep it working was beyond me. So I salute the brothers and sisters that spearheaded this project. Now here is where I'm going to loose many of you, BlaqSpot  is not free. Now listen before you take your eyes off  the page, If we want to build we have to pay. Freedom has never been free, nor can it be handed to you. Freedom has to be bought

We are making Progress

We are moving forward here at Gye-Nyame Journey. Those that have been following the Podcast have noticed that I have recently started using Google Hangouts, to give listeners an opportunity to join the live show. After the show is completed, it is downloaded to spreaker. I recently was introduced to the Uberconference app, and will begin to use it in two ways. With  uberconference I will begin doing pre-recorded podcast with my dedicated audience. Of course I will continue posting up information about the shows, and re-broadcasting most of them. Some shows I will use for the Gye-Nyame Warrior Training Course that I will be releasing soon. The other way I will use uberconference is by focusing it on you. I want to use this conferencing tool to connect with my readers and listeners. The show will be called "The Line" and it will always be open and you as a listener to the show or reader of the blog will be able to call in, and contact me, and we can do a conversation that wil

I Have Taken A Sip From The Future......... And It Taste Like Mead!

Image
That's right Brother ha2 is talking going into the spirit business, I have been experimenting with fermenting and I have stumbled onto an ancient drink called mead. Many people in this modern day and time is not familiar with this drink so let me give you a little information about this gift from the universe. One day I was going through some books on my audible account, and figured I wanted to try something new. So I stumbled on this book called the "Carnivores Dilemma" an excellent listen. Now to be truthful if I had to sit down and read the book more than likely it would not have happened, But thank God for modern technology. I downloaded the book and listened to a story about a Man that asked a simple question "Where do our food comes from",  and in answering the question he discovered and shared some shocking insights about the food we consume. The major point that brings us to the reason that I am writing this blog, is that he decided to create a meal f

The Magic Hour

Image
The idea of starting this show came from a conversation I had with one of my brothers. This was long before the internet was in our pockets and shaping our lives the way it does today. We made a plan to create a internet radio station called "GyeWeb Radio", that independent artist could use to promote their music. We wanted to provide a venue for the unheard artist to air and promote their skills. The ultimate goal was to help independent artist build a fan base outside of the main music industry and develop a revenue stream to support what they do. We felt that the industry was choking the life out of Hip-Hop, and we had a grand plan to save it. Unfortunately the cost at this time would have been in the 10's of thousands of dollars. With the financial crisis looming and by getting caught up in the "Great Real-Estate Hustle" we didn't have the money to finance the project. Fast forward about 10 years and now with the advancements in the internet and the dev

New Tool In Revolution - Meet Gumroad

Image
Finally business/ that is done on internet/ that makes sense and fair/ I like to introduce those on the Journey to Gumroad.com . I was lucky enough to run into this site from a post by one of my internet heroes (Seth Godin). Finally I am seeing ideas that make the internet a truly level playing field. With Gumroad you can sell things directly to your followers and friends. No big institution in-between taking a cut from your labor.I personally sell books off of amazon, and they take almost 50% of what I make. This gives an artist like myself no choice but to raise my price. But with Gumroad on charging .25 cents per purchase now I and other artist can bring our price down so that people who may want to try our product would be more willing to do so.  For me this has revolutionized the game, and now I'm jumping into the heart of it. Because this site allows me to sell MP3, PDFs, or even seen hardcopies or other objects over the site at a an affordable price. I can make

The revolution has begun!!! Thanks Gumroad for giving me Ammo

Image
After looking at what could be done with Gumroad I decided to fire my first shot and release one of my MP3's through them. I also started spreading the word to some my artist friends about  this idea, and encouraging them to use it, before it gets shut down. I don't believe that people truly understand the implications of being able to sale their products at a fair price. Listen the price of production on my end is so low that I can offer my listeners or readers my product at the price they feel they want to pay. I get get my info out as fast as I want. I can write or record a continuous saga and put it up as the audience demands. This is liberation and I am going to make sure that everyone in my circle use it to its fullest. All of my products will be available for free, and will remain so now because of Gumroad. I will offer the same products for sale so that those that want to support the Journey can do so. It's  a hot concept, now I have a real way of measuring who

Demari Faust on Gye-Nyame Journey radio

Had an excellent interview with one of columbus's finest artist. It is good to find young artist who really embrace Hip-Hop tradition. In the interview we discuss the path that he has walked and he dropped some jewels for those who have ears. So take a coffee brake and listen his and other interview on my spreaker radio show Gye-Nyame journey. Nuff said Peace & 1hunid years

Golden MC- Hip-Hop fable

Image
Any similarities to any real life situations is purely a coincidence. This tale is simply an adaption of "the goose who laid the golden eggs." Once upon a time when the Game was pure and the Love for the art and culture was still alive, there was an rapper who was called the "Golden MC", because all his ryhmes seemed to turn to gold. His fans flocked to stores to buy everything he put out, and his shows would always sell out. When he wrote a song it seemed to touch his listeners hearts, sparked their imaginations and excited thier passions. When he put out an album it seemed that he shaped reality. He developed a cult like following to the point that everything he touched and wore people seemed to flock to copy which meant that he not only sold records, but he was able to sell clothes, glasses, alcohol, and etc.. This golden MC belonged to a crew of friends that was led by a power hungry individual, and he wanted all the money he could get now. He didn'

Gye-Nyame Steaming Journey and Food Buy

Image
I know that you were expecting to see some steamed veggies or fish in my new steamer, but I decided to share with you one of the business that Gye-Nyame Tribe will be involved in. This Pic is one of a box that purchase every two weeks from an Elder who has been running a food buy (he calls it a coop) for over 20 years. I wanted to give you a view of some of the next steaming participants in the coming week. This week Elder Nommo x hooked me up with as you can see: Bananas,pears, greens (in the bag on top, i havent open them yet so i dont know what kind), oranges onions, lettuce, squash, Broccoli, and cabbage. We have our buy every two weeks, and as i find someome in my tribe with the organizations skills we are going to take this over. Of course we will remain parteners with the Elder, but we will take it to the next level. The idea is simple We want to NationBuild, by helping our community improve their health. Right now this coop is not organic, but we not only can help move th

The Baba - Chapter 8 part III

Image via Wikipedia “Jay, sit down.” I sat down and Simba took his place and Kwesi came and took a seat as well. “I’ve called some brothers here to help you through your ordeal. Kwesi is at the Master level and a few more brothers and sisters are on their way. I want you to eat and relax for a few hours while everything is in progress. “ “Yes, Sir…..” “You have questions?” “Yes.” “Well feel free to ask.” “First of all, where are we?” “We are in Southern Ohio at one of the families fish farms .” “What is done here?” “We grow fish , man.” Simba and Kwesi broke out laughing. “For what?” “To sell of course. We have fisheries and farms all around the country, and they pull in a lot of money for the family. At this particular farm we have five well stocked ponds that produce hundreds of thousands of pounds of fish per year.” “I have never heard of majestic fish farms?.” “Have you heard of Papa Joes, the home of the Secret lover Fish Boat?” “Hell yeah!

Simba was coming downstairs. “At ease Brother and thank you for the respect.” Everyone in the immediate area greeted him. “Jay come with me.” I followed him out of the patio door and into the garden. He sat on the bench and I remained standing in angalia. “Relax Jay, I brought you out here to talk with you. I want to explain what is about to happen.” “Yes sir.” I sat down next to him. “The family is at a crucial point in our development, and we need people around that really have the group’s best interest at heart.” “I understand Sir.” “The next step for you is to get clarity on why you were chosen, and for you to find your Nia.” “I know my purpose, and that is to serve the club and to build this nation.” “That is what you have been taught to say. Is that what’s really in your heart?” I grew silent because in a way he was right. Ever since I ent

Is the cost of gas rising or is the value of the dollar Falling?

Image
Image via Wikipedia My goal on this journey is to bring relevant information from a variety of fields to help us get a better understanding of ourselves and the world. Doing my morning search for motivation for a new Ha2ku i ran across the freakonomics site and they always seem to have something good to ponder on. After reading this story I was amazed at the consistency of the price of gas , but even more inter sting was the frightening fall in the value of the dollar. if you don't read the story checkout the graph. It reaches back to 1916 up till now. Look at both lines and read the instructions and you will see the dollar fallen off. hahahahaa Freakonomics » A Crude Guess About The Future

Capoeria a model for new world

Image
Image via Wikipedia Play capoeria/ And with each Roda watch life/ Change before your eyes/ Being blessed to have been involved with capoeria, I have a model of life that works for me. Capoeria is an art that teaches you how to play rather than fight. Don't get me wrong you learn to defend yourself, but the vibe is different from other martial arts. In capoeria you view conflict differently, by you making it a game you are more willing to try new things. In trying new things the art becomes you as you develop your style of play. This feeling , this idea can't help but to come into your regular life. Your life begins to become your roda (ring were we play) and you are constantly in the game. Knowing the rules of the roda or life makes the game more spectacular as you do your moves, and take advantage of what is being given to you. i had to recently look at my life and remeber my training. Some time when life seems to become overwhelming I have to take advantage of the rules
