Thinking Board

Image
A new tool I am working with is what I call a thinking board. It is basically a board that is placed on my wall in my bedroom where I can write down and mind map new ideas. This tool can come in handy for all those on the Journey if you already don't use something similar (journal). This gives me a place where i can sketch out quick pictures, short statements or mind maps as they hit me. I use a board and erasable markers to help me bring my ideas and inspiration alive. These colors and the space gives me the ability to lay out and develop my ideas rather than just hold them in my mind. What i have noticed how once i started the ideas have began to take on a life of their own. Because they are visible before i go to sleep and wake up i can revisit them often and freely add without worrying about any outside criticism. This board also serves as a place where I can put up goals that i personally want to program into my mental hard drive. i use the board to help me focus my mind on w

The Power of your Family Pyrmid

Image
During a recent class I had the pleasure of giving, I challenged the participants to build a "Family Pyramid". A family pyramid is simple a family tree flipped upside down. The idea of this exercise to help the participant to recognize their greatness as well as to help them develop a sense of destiny. Most of the participants completed the assignment. I moved into a discussion about each individual being on earth  for a purpose and the way I used to prove this to them was showing them how many people had to come together in their personal pyramid in order for them to exist. I explained that each individual within their personal pyramid had to come together exactly at the right time in order for them to exist. I further asked them to imagine that everybody within their personal pyramid was brought together by destiny just to produce them. Then I threw out the question "if these people were brought together in the past just so that you can have this moment what are you do

Have You Shaken The Dust From Your Feet

Image
Shaking the Dust from your feet is a command that I learned that Jesus gave to his disciples. They were instructed to shake the dust from there feet when they left a town, or house where people did not accept what they had to offer. When you look at it from a purely physical level this command can be confusing, but when we put on our symbolic glasses we see a whole new idea. Dust is defined as " Fine, dry powder consisting of tiny particles of earth or waste matter lying on the ground or on surfaces or carried in the air."   By shaking the dust from your feet when leaving a place means to leave the waste matter, and decayed particles where you found them.  On the Journey we have to have the same mind state, we want to begin shaking the dust from our feet when we leave not just places, but also when we leave negative people. We don't want to be carrying around the old waste from past situations because they may contaminate any new situation that we may enter. shaking t

The Art of Yoking

Image
The Gye-Nyame method of pulling the mind & body together during   activities. This prepares the body and mind for Umoja (unity) with the Spirit. Check out my podcast " The Art of Yoking ". While walking in the woods, or should I say small wooded area in the city. The thought hit me ultimately what is the idea behind yoga, and the idea of yoke came to my mind. One of the definitions of a yoke is an instrument that is used to get  separate parties to work together. To yoking is the process of binding things together so that they can work together. When this thought hit me it  sparked my Kuumba, as well moved me to use my Kujichagulia..I have many clients who I take through the movements that I have been working on for years. When I use the term yoga with some of them believe it or not it still scares people. I have long been a rebrander, and have sought to bring information to people where they were, and now the new inspiration is called " The art of Yoking".
