Let's talk About The Pineal Gland

Peace FAM:
let's talk about the mysterious gland, that is called "the seat of the soul", and the "The third eye". This gland has many hidden powers, but one thing is for sure, we will never access it on our present diet. There appears to be an organized effort to slow your personal development down. Tune in and let's explore the available information about the pineal gland.

The Microbiom & Mental Health

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 field. So listen in and let me know what you think.
Be sure to take the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge. For those that want to get some inside information about the challenge and what it can do for you, subscribe to our GNJ Update where I daily update you on my personal progress and struggle within the system.

Water & Dehydration

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 of the types of water that we drink. The argument is raised that any water but natural spring water may be causing damage as well. The idea is that spring water through it's relationship with the earth provides our body not only with water, but also carries elements in the proper form that our bodies need.
I myself have been sipping on distilled, purified water jumping over the spring water, but for the next few weeks I will begin sipping on some natural spring water. Be careful if you are going to take the same course. Because many spring water say spring, but are nothing but purified water designed to fool you. Check the bottle and make sure that the water you are sipping on can be traced to an actual spring.
Check out the video and let's keep growing and sharing.

I wish you Peace, Power, Joy, and 1hunidyears.

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

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 groups in America already do this, all you to do is look at the little townships, and suburbs on the fringes of our cities. As Marcus Garvey says "what man has done man can do". Now many people will read this and automatically think that I am discussing separation, but this is happening in the front of our eyes and no one ever screams separatism. We have the right in this system to set up something for ourselves, as a matter of fact we will become more valuable to this country. As we start building, providing jobs, training our young people, taking care of our elders, educating our children, producing goods, and providing services our net worth will begin to grow, and we will be able to formulate beneficial partnerships with other groups. This is not about isolation, but this is about taking some time pulling ourselves together, and demanding that other groups respect us. This is Kujichagulia on steroids, we define our borders, we define our relationship with other groups and deal from a position of power.

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

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 this anger. Never realizing that in my confusion I mislabeled fear (scared) as anger. My whole life I have been socialized to maginalize fear (scared), even take it out of my personal language, not realizing that I was crippling my self as a whole human being. Getting rid of part of my guidance system that would help me get back to who I really am, or better yet what I truly am Powerful, Peaceful, and Joyous. The natural state for all of us.
Now be sure to checkout the video and join the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge. We have to start getting back in touch with ourselves.

Daily Toast- Ujamaa 46171 (Misplaced Emotinal Energy)

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 learn how to harness them they will tear us apart. Now I need to make myself clear, I am not talking about shutting them down, and pretending we don't have them. I am talking about learning to use them, I dare to say even aim them. Yes your emotions can be aimed and utilized to push you toward your goals. Our ancestors did it, and our enemies are presently using it against us. When you don't have emotional control over yourself you leave a untapped energy source that others will strive to use. Groups have emotional energy as well and can be guided and manipulated to benefit others. This is what is happening to us as individuals and as groups. we invest energy into all sorts of endeavors that do not benefit us. I am simply suggesting that those that are reading this and in Gye-Nyame Journey should be learning ways to harness the emotional energy of ourselves, our tribe, our community, and others to move us to our greatness.

Daily Toast- Kujichagulia 44171 (Steaming food)

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.

Daily Toast- Umoja 43171

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 there you will begin to build the healthy collective that will only add to you rather than drain you.

Daily Toast- Imani 42171

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. Remember we are seeking to take control of the energy of the day and guide the symbols associated with that day in our favor. Then we will move tour our daily toast, this is an internal libations that we pour to align our body with our purpose. We start this part by drinking some water. The drinking of water is the most important part of this ritual. Water is the key to health and if we are not taking hydrating ourselves serious all the other parts of the challenge will fall apart. You should drink water before you take anything else into your body. Water is filled with axe' (life force), and it helps awaken your body, by removing toxins from the previous day. I suggest drinking at least 16 ounces, but do what you can. I personally prefer distilled water, and the first drink should be just pure water. After this step is complete we move into our toast (libations), for this portion you can use water, or a health drink. I personally use "That Ambrosia" a kombucha I make. If you don't have access to "That Ambrosia" you can use Lemon and water, lime and water, apple cider, and water, or an herbal tea. It is best that all this drinks be unsweetened, especially if you are on the warrior diet.
In the Toast we salute our Creator, our personal ancestors, the present moment, and our future generations. This part of our ritual once again gets us to focus on the important things in our lives. After the toast move into a routine that helps get focused on the coming day. I clean up the kitchen, but you can build your own. The routine can be composed of anything that will help you focus your energy for the day. After the routine is complete we move into our meditation and workout. I personally move into the axe' breath, and a exercise regiment. After this i move into my cold shower which definitely will help you get focused, helps get the blood flowing, helps your body eliminate toxins, and jump starts your internal system by encouraging it to begin burning fat.
Yesterday we spoke about utilizing the Warrior Diet during this process so I won't go into a conversation about that.
FAM this is the basic run down of the process, nothing is in stone. I expect you to use your Kuumba to structure it to fit you. Checkout the video enjoy my kids and have a great day.

Daily Toast- Nia 331171 (Puts some Nia on it)

Peace FAM
Woke up this morning, and did not want to leave the house, but I knew I still had to do my toast. I decided to do a promo for the 21 day Nguzo Saba Challenge. After going back and checking out gumroad my excitement grew because with this product I could finally take control of my digital content.
On this Nia you can decide to exist on purpose. Nia is a spice that you can put on your life, to bring the flavor back. Take some time and challenge yourself to move to the next level. If you need help we are here to assist you. The Nguzo Saba Challenge is designed to help you apply Nia and the rest of the principles to your life, and in doing that change every aspect of it. You will be surprised how by applying this simple system you can change your reality. I have been working through the steps myself, and will be here to help you when you get stuck. The challenge is about taking back the symbols that shape our lives, establishing routines, and rituals on purpose, and aligning the 5 parts of our being. You will receive information from GNJ as well as supplemental information that  my team has been gathering for years. Now you have the choice to pick and chose what you use, but you get from the process what you put in. You will receive emails on a regular basis throughout the 21 days that you can use. You will get free pdf's of Tribal Quotes, The Players Pyramid, and the 21 Day Nguzo Saba Challenge Journal. You will receive access to our Folktale spreadsheet that connects each story to a principle and the instructions on how to use it. You will receive a video that walks you through the Axe' breath and the Gye-Nyame Salutation exercise. You will also get instructions on the Warrior Diet, and some information on the African Heritage Diet. We will also have live hangouts, as well as make someone available for you if you have any questions. You will also get access to our Nguzo Saba Challenge Community on Face book so that you can share your insights, struggles, and victories.
I know some of you are wondering why would I give all this away for free. Years of research, writing, and struggling made available for nothing. The fact of the matter is that it does cost, you have to work, and trust the process. Once the process has worked it's magic on you and your life you will come back and contribute to our Tribe. So FAM it is not free, it is a strategic move, better yet confidence in what we have to offer you, and confidence in you. We at GNJ realize that all relationship are built on give and take. We are making the first move in establishing a relationship, now it is your turn.

Daily Toast- Ujamaa (Story as a resource)

Peace FAM
Had a powerful interview on "Tribal Quotes", usually I don't have interviews on my two major shows, but this was a special occasion. This brother is a story teller and understands the power of the narrative and expressed it very well. His name was brother Wekesa Madzimoyo and he is a founder of the AYA Educational Institute, and he will be in Columbus, Ohio on April 7- April 8 with some powerful workshops. It would be wise for you to be in the house.
I chose to do the interview on the Tribal Quote because his message lined up with today's principle Ujamaa. He discussed the power of stories to heal and to move our people to another level. He shared that we are in the position we are in because we are not telling our tales properly. We are neglecting one of the most powerful resources that we have. The story resource is so powerful because it can inspire others to move in the way that our culture and people need. He discussed teaching people how to construct stories so that our message is carried through them, rather than the usual message of our enemies. Even defeats can be framed in away that can inspire our people, as a matter of fact in the hands of a skilled master a defeat, can catapult a culture to legendary status, if you don't believe me "remember the Alamo" or  how about the "300" Spartans that were slaughtered by the Persians. Both of those examples inspired and continue to inspire millions.
Family the bottom line is that if you want to change your life, change the story about it. Take time to re-frame your tale and the tale of your people and Let's Build!!! I will see you at the workshop and at the next show.
