The Flame

the flame

Fire.

Like a moth to a flame I am filled with a warm desire

But too close & I will burn.

So though I yearn for your touch

I know more than a thought is much too much…

Instead I’ll watch you from the shadows.

Try to resist the hypnotism of your magnetic sway

All the while growing closer…and closer…each day

Until my inhibitions are all burned away

***Apologies for the lack of posts, but I got something from the past couple weeks that will hopefully insight & excite ya! ENJOY!***

 

Greetings Spiiirits!
So much love & light to you all!

 

About 2 weeks ago, Kwithy Kat & Free Spiiirit conjoined to create a piece of art that would speak to the people in a way words alone, could not. Something that would activate thought, inspire, and empower.

 

We thought a short film would be the perfect thing and for it, we had the perfect concept. When particles collide…sometimes they create something that is truly magic. And that’s what we feel we have manifested here.

 

Here are a couple of Behind the Scenes Sneak-Peeks into the process

Here a couple shots from the impromptu Photoshoot that took place

23 years ago…August 18th at 7:04pm…a young G was born into the world.

A young Goddess that is…

And in this lovely season of the Leo, I celebrate my birth and another year dwelling in this beautiful Earthly realm.

I thank the Almighty Creator for all the grace upon my life and this year shall be a year of success, freedom, joy, & loving light! I declare it!

THE DAY

Had a lot of birthday fun! Triiin gave me the royal treatment. From delicious breakfast in bed, home spa treatments, an impromptu BDAY photoshoot, a beautiful homemade cake of perfection, plenty of blunts, wine, & tango lessons! Not to mention a delicious gourmet dinner and awesome gifts. I truly felt like a Leo lioness Queen.

My family sent their beautiful birthday wishes such a manner that there was no way that I could not feel the love. They also sent me a b-day package that arrived perfectly on today, but my apartment manager left her office early, so I couldn’t get it 😦 . However I’m still happy about the package and so excited to see whats inside! My mom always sends something right on time that’s just what I want/need. Some intuition on that woman… not to mention our connection 🙂 . (P.S. since first starting this post I have seen whats in the package! &it was right-on-time gifts, as usual 🙂 ). It’s my first birthday that we haven’t been able to see each other and I miss ’em! But I know they were all with me in spirit.

IMAGE , my friend & an amazingly dope artist, also played a part in making my birthday special! Not only did he give me the gift of a beautiful piece of art to hang on my wall, he gave me a beautiful handmade necklace to serve as wearable piece of art as well! He also took Triiin & I for a lovely day of drinks, desserts, and good vibes 🙂

Spiritual Sundays: How to Meditate (5 Easy Steps)

Greetings & Happy Sunday, Spiiirits!

meditationblogAT

Meditation is a vital component for self-awareness and spiritual growth. The practice of meditation brings with it not only spiritual benefits, but mental and physical benefits as well. After educating myself on meditation and its many benefits, as well as beginning to experience some of the benefits myself, I believe meditation should be practiced by every human being on the planet, daily, in some shape or form. This would be beneficial, not only for each individual, but for all mankind collectively.

Many stray away from meditating because they don’t have a complete idea of what it is or how to do it. And we can all agree that Mother Culture has taught us to fear what we do not know/understand. But meditation should not be something we remain in the dark about any longer. And it should be something everyone knows how to do.

Feeling as such, I have decided to compile a basic how-to guide to meditation. Nothing too stressful, a couple of quick steps…so easy a caveman could do it! 😀

 

Step 1 – Find Your Meditation Location. Find a private spot where you feel safe and comfortable. The spot should be quiet and free from external distractions. This can range from a bedroom, a bathroom, a closet, a spot in your backyard, etc. just anywhere where you can create a comfortable, quiet, uninterrupted moment for yourself.

Step 2 – Get Comfortable. Once you have secured your meditation location, find a spot and get comfy. You may sit in a chair or on the floor. You may also lie down, though it is easier to accidentally fall asleep this way. Just choose the position that is most comfortable for you. But be sure that, no matter how you choose to sit, you keep your posture upright as to properly facilitate the flow of energy. Make sure to clear the exact spot where you plan to meditate of any clutter. Many people use crystals to amplify their meditative sessions. If you have crystals or some other object pertaining to the meditation, it is fine to keep those near you. Also, if you become uncomfortable at any later point in the meditation you can mildly maneuver. However, for best results, movement should be kept to a minimum.

Step 3 – Decide the Time Frame. Once you begin the act of meditating, it is easy for time to pass without you being aware how much of it has gone by. While some may just let the meditation lead them and just get up whenever they feel “done”, this may not be the  best move for a beginner. You also don’t want to find yourself inclined to think about time at all during the act of meditation, as this may just make you figity, and bring stress that draws attention away from your meditation. The best way to avoid this is to predetermine a time limit. This can be done by setting a timer or alarm. 30 minutes is a good amount of time to meditate, though you should feel free to do more or less. Guided meditations are another good way to decide the time frame of your meditation, but more on that later.

Step 4- Breathe & Observe. Close your eyes.  Now its time to get into the groove of actual meditation. Take deep breaths, fully inhaling and fully exhaling. Now begin to clear your mind. You can do this by focusing on your breaths or by counting to 100 in your mind as you continue to breathe. Thoughts will come during this time, but it is your job not to engage with any of these thoughts. You are to separate yourself from the thoughts, simply becoming a passive observer of them. It is important in this moment not to classify the thoughts that come as good or bad, or really respond to the thought in anyway. Don’t delve into the thought, don’t analyze it. Simply observe the thought as it passes and then send it away.

Step 5 – |END| Return to the Physical Realm. The alarm (or whatever timer you have put in place) sounds, signaling that the time has come to draw your meditation to a close. DO NOT just bounce up hurriedly. Slowly ease into the physical state of being. Start off by mentally becoming aware, again, of where you are physically. Next become aware of your physical body. Wiggle your toes, yawn, stretch. Then slowly open your eyes and re-accustom to your surroundings. It is important to do this because shifting modes too rapidly can be discombobulating. However this whole process need not take longer than one minute. Now you can get up, move about, and carry on with your day! Some people, alternatively, choose to remain in their spot and reflect upon the meditation or send silent gratitude into the Universe. This is perfectly fine as well. Go with how you feel! (which after a meditation, is usually GRRREEEAAAATTTT! 😉 )

***Quick Tip***- I mentioned guided meditations in step 3. Guided meditations are a great tool for beginners! (and pros, alike, if you ask me). They are perfect for giving those who have trouble clearing their mind, on their own, something to focus on. There are also guided meditations that cater to specific areas (such as balance, prosperity, healing, etc.). And with guided meditations ranging from as short as 10 minutes to as long as 2 hours, they can be perfect for deciding the time frame for how long you want to meditate, as well as what aspects of your being you are primarily want to focus on in each session.

Hope these tips prove helpful to you guys. Happy Meditating, Spiiirits!

Namaste

OOTD: Independent Soul

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” – Charlotte Brontë

Hello Spiiirits! I hope you had a marvelous 4th of July/4th of July Weekend. Though I’m not big on the America-centric holiday, I know I did. Nothing like a little celebration with friends &/or family to kick off the month right? Speaking of kicking off the month can you believe we have now entered the 7th month of 2014???  Summer is in full swing and we are more than halfway through the year! Crazy. But I couldn’t be more thankful.

At any rate, I wanted to share my 4th of July outfit with you lovely spiiirits!  Triiin & I were invited by our lovely friends Ash & Kwith to enjoy some backyard chillin’ & grillin’. We had the most delicious grilled veggies and grilled seafood (salmon, lobster, & shrimp to boot!). And the night was topped with a wicked fireworks show from an amazing view. Great day 🙂

4thjuly1 4thjuly44thjuly2 4thjuly3  4thjuly5

Crotchet Top: Thrifted, Burgundy Bandeau: Shasa, Skirt: F21, Scarf (for turban): Walmart, Pinstripe Sneakers: Target, Choker: Bombay Fashions, Pyramid Studs: F21, Crossbody Bag: A street vendor we call “Rasta Man” :), Mixed Metal Bracelet: Glitter, Rings (Snake Ring, Coral “crystal ball” Ring, & Earth Tone Oil Paint Ring): Gift + Beauty Supply, Cat-Eye Sunglasses: Santee Alley

The daytime was HOTTTTTTTTT, so I aimed to wear an outfit that could handle the heat, while being stylish & comfortable. No matter how hot in the day, LA tends to cool off substantially at night, so I brought along a yellow cardigan to keep me warm when it got cool out.

As you can see by some of the pictures, Triiin’s outfit was fab & killin’ it, also! If you want details to Triiin’s outfit, just let me know in the comments below! Also…we sell cute custom crops like the one she is wearing at FreeSpiiirit. Email for inquiries.

Connected & Inspired: Superior Life Energy

sleblog

Hello & Good Day Free Spiiirits of the World.

How are you all on this lovely day?..Well it’s a beautiful day, today in SoCal. One of the few beautiful days I have had completely free for a while (for a number of reasons). With the birds chirping, the breeze blowing, and the sun high in the sky, a wave of inspiration has come over me and prompted me to write. So, here I am 🙂

Okay sooooo, raise your hands if you like crystals!

*raises hand*

If you don’t like ’em, ya truly don’t know what your missing. Do a little research and you’ll find that crystals have many physical & metaphysical properties that can be of benefit to your body, mind, and soul.

Its been a little over a month since I received two very special crystal pieces from Superior Life Energy and it’s time I gave them a full review.

The Pyramid of Contemplation & The Pendant of Creativity

The Pyramid of Contemplation: This piece is an exquisite Orgone pyramid who’s shape and contents provide much spiritual power. The pyramid boasts a combination of Agate, Green Aventurine, Blue Aventurine, Mookaite Jasper, Seashells, and Reiki Seeds. Superior Life Energy owner, LaQuan Williams named this piece for the very relaxing state that it induced when he would stare into it. In my experience with this piece, it seems to be a powerful connector to the spiritual realm. Before receiving the pyramid, I was having trouble with my dream recall. I am usually quite a dreamer and quite strong with dream recall but I had a short stint (maybe 2 months) of time where I had to go without fluoride-free toothpaste. (Thank God that’s over!) I think the temporarily increased fluoride consumption had some negative affects which manifested in my dream-life. After receiving the Pyramid, the second night I slept with it near my bed, I had an extremely powerful dream, the full contents of which I remembered impeccably the next morning. In this dream, I met an alien who is more than likely one of my spirit guides. The time spent with the alien spirit guide was such a beautiful experience and I could truly feel the all-encompassing love of God radiating from the being. I was very interested to find later, in my research of this Orgone pyramid’s contents, that the spiritual energy of Blue Aventurine helps to attune you to guidance from higher realms and begin to perceive your spiritual gifts. And Mookaite Jasper, can help connect one with ancestor spirits to give intuitive understanding. Coincidence? I think not. About 3 weeks passed and I also had a lucid dream in which not only did I have a conscious memory of another (previous) dream, realize I was dreaming at present (with one of the manifestations of my sub-conscious literally saying it), but I maintained control long enough to turn a door knob and open a door within the dream before waking up. The Pyramid of Contemplation not only restored my dream recall but amplified my dream abilities, thereby my dream experiences.

Lucy, The Pendant of Creativity: Lucy, gets her name from me. She contains Amethyst, Red Jasper, Carnelian, and Hematite I did my darnedest not to look up anything about her before I wore her. I truly wanted to see how she made me feel without any previous bias from the research and then see how that measured up with the benefits each component was supposed to provide. ( I try to make a habit of that. It provides the most true results.) I wore her out into life one day. Actually it was the first time Triiin & I visited Santee Alley. Halfway throughout the day as I was getting a feel for my pendant I realized I had been making musical beats in my head all day, writing, and being constantly inspired. Not that these aren’t things that I normally do, but i seemed to happening at an increased level. Whether it was musical ideas or ideas for Free Spiiirit or whatever bright idea came next, inspiration kept coming. I told Triiin decidedly “You know what, I feel more creative today. Yes…creative, is the feeling.” After researching, I found that Carnelian (which is actually the largest crystal component present in the pendant) stimulates creativity. From then on I decided that, for me, this would be the Pendant of Creativity. I named her Lucy after well….Lucy…and all the realms of possibility and inspiration that usually comes to one on a Lucy trip. Lucy is my little slice of LSD when sober, haha.

I would definitely recommend Superior Life Energy crystals to anyone interested in crystals for a spiritual reason. LaQuan Williams is a master at making perfectly powerful Orgonite combinations that could cure any metaphysical imbalance or ailment you might have. Ohhhh and they are such beauts too. Now thats a win-win. 😉

Gifts from the Angels: ✡ Wood Merkaba ✡

Greetings Beautiful People!

For at least the past year & a half, I have been privy to the many uses of crystals. Crystals can be used to heal on a physical and spiritual level by balancing the energy imbalances in ones aura. Crystals not only carry energy of their own but they are an amplifier of the users energy and intentions. I have been interested in the soul-healing energy of crystals ever since the knowledge of their metaphysical power and awesomeness was first presented to me. I am by no means a crystal connoisseur but I am learning more and more about individual types of crystals and their special individual uses each day.

Recently, Wood Merkaba kindly sent Triiinity & I some beautiful additions to our budding crystal collection.

wm1

(Left: Rhodonite Pendant, Right: Flourite Ring

You know, it is said by many that crystals pick where they want to go (choosing their owners and choosing when they are ready to leave them). Well when Triiin went to the Wood Merkaba store site looking for pieces, the Flourite ring, whyy this baby just opened up its link without even being clicked on. I came in the room and she showed me the site asking me (without telling me what happened) to pick the pieces that appealed to me and I picked this very piece. So we decided it was destined, the flourite ring had picked us! When we read up on the properties of flourite, we found that flourite is a multidimensional gemstone (associated with the 3rd eye & crown chakras) that cleanses & stabilizes the aura, advancing the parts of the brain that connects us to Source.  It balances and gives order to the energies removing chaos and disorder from ones environment. This awesome crystal gives clarity on situations where you need to see unbiased truth past the illusion or emotionally clouded judgement. Flourite also offers powerful healing and protection (especially on a psychic level). This was crazily spot on, in the fact that we had been thinking about getting a crystal for protection, especially against psychic manipulation, but did not know which crystal would be best. Not to mention needing clarity to make sound, unbiased decisions in our personal and business lives while ordering our environment and strengthening our connection with the I AM. Perfection.

Wood Merkaba added in another piece for me, that truly makes me feel as though she read my energies from afar. The Rhodonite pendant. Rhodonite is a stone of love which, through steady uplifting vibrations, helps one to stabilize their emotions, deepens one’s understanding, and matures one to meet life with balance and grace. It strengthens the understanding of unconditional, universal love past our concept of conventional love. It is associated with the heart chakra and increases self-love and love for all of creation.  Though it is not necessarily associated directly with the astrological sign Leo (my astrological sign & a fire sign), rhodonite is said to resonate with fire energy. Also, though I am a very loving being, I also can be as fiery in my emotions as I can be kind and altruistic. Rhodonite is here to give me more balanced emotions and increase my love for self and the world to the level it needs to be to spread love on a mass level and exact my purpose to spread positivity and peace among the Earth. Also, Rhodonite is said to help with anxiety, which at times, Triiin mildly battles with.

Jessica Miller, the angel behind Wood Merkaba, is a Certified crystal healer and makes beautiful wearable crystal pieces. It is clear that she charges, cleanses, and blesses the her crystal pieces before sending. Upon receiving these beautiful babies we could feel their fully charged, cool hum of power. When I put the copper plated flourite ring on my finger I could immediately feel powerful energy coursing around and through my finger. Talk about, WOW! Holding the Rhodonite pendant in my hand and stroking it with my finger, I could feel the energy emitting from it as well. Upon wearing the pendant out into life, I found my emotions to be more balanced in situations where I would have normally been riled. Its crazy how real the soul-healing powers of crystals, really is! I feel as though I was at least slightly more patient than normal and better at expressing love in tense situations. I am presently wearing it on a gold chain but I really want to get a copper chain for it. Copper is a great conductor of energy , the best (dare I say), which is why many crystals pieces are made with copper in, on, or, around the crystal.

As someone who does not use over-the-counter or prescription medication and wholly advocates natural methods of healing, I love using crystals as a part of a holistic healing plan for my mind, body, & spirit. These two beautiful pieces are already making wonderful additions to our budding crystal collections and I will continue to observe our progress in the areas these crystals pieces were created to aid.

Do any of you have experiences with flourite or rhodonite?? If so, share, Share, SHARE!!!

Happy New Year!! {Lessons, & Moving Forward}

Happy New Year Peeps!

2014, whoo!

HNY

I can’t believe its the first of the year. What can I say about 2013 before I like…officially let it go.

Well, I was having some personal reflection time a couple days ago looking for the summation, in a sense, of what 2013 was all about in my life. And my spirit came to the conclusion that 2013 was all about building and patience. It was a year of a lot of blessings, but a lot of testing as well.

For instance, the beginning of 2013 started with my mom in the hospital in a fight for her life. By new years she had come out of her induced coma but her condition was still critical. She could barely speak, she couldn’t walk. Don’t wanna drone on and on about the negative though. Ultimately, by mid-to-late Jan she was out of the hospital and though she had to learn to walk and talk again, she fully regained her health by late Feb, early March. She is fine, strong, and healthy now. Praises be! I feel like it was a testing of the faith and patience of my family, to wait on Source to restore her.

The entirety of the concept for Free Spiiirit came to be November 2012 and the line was slated to drop Jan 1st of 2013, but with all the things going on in my life with my mom  and family and such, we chose to change that deadline. I’m super close to my Mom, man, she is my rock and I am hers. So the whole situation was pretty hard on me….moving on, February 13th the line was dropped and the site was opened to the public. From then we hit the ground running with promo and fashion shows and did our best to make Free Spiiirit as great as we could from the small city of Huntsville, TX (where our school is located). We laid the foundations of the business and made it our mission to grind, grind, grind to build it up from there. Building blocks, stepping stones. We planned SxSW as a business trip to get the brand name out past the boundaries of our school grounds.

After SxSW in March, is when Triiin and I formulated the plan to move to California together in August. After networking with so many like-minded people during the festival, meeting Kendrick Lamar, and seeing how much we could build the business by simply being in the right place at the right time we knew Huntsville was too small a pond to remain in for much longer. At this time, began the building pressure of school and my growing disinterest with it, as well as a decline in monetary resources. By summer, the struggle had become all too real. I was taking school and working and hating every second of it and still only had enough money to survive. How were we ever supposed to save to move to Cali in these conditions? I didn’t know. To top it all off, the summer ended with an apartment fire days before move-out (–it was caused by a faulty dryer–) that destroyed some of our merchandise and made it twice as hard to pack and move out of the unit. It was August by now and the plans seemed to be foiled but we knew in our hearts Cali was still where we were supposed to be. “Patience, Patience” was the whisper…In good fashion, the Lord provided recourse and Triiin & I went to stay with my Mom in Houston.

Houston was its own beast. The Beckster (my car…Becky was her name) started giving me issues after moving there & soon pooped out altogether. Every expected avenue for Cali money was snatched from us by one instance or another. Then not to mention once you stop living with your parents, you never wanna re-live with your parents (and siblings) again. Lets not get into the endless reasons why. (Love them, they’re great n shit…but this is just TRUE, lol). We were doing our best not to get hog-tied down to the city of Houston and trying to keep in mind that Cali was still the mission regardless of what things look like. But imagine living everyday striving so hard for what you want, what you know you are supposed to do…and feeling no closer to your goal. Every day waking up with hope and going to bed with the nagging stab of disappointment. It gets really difficult. This was a true testing of patience and finding inner peace. But we just kept working on the business (Free Spiiirit) and keeping our mind, hearts, and energies set on the path laid out before us. God kept giving us signs that we were on path and after 2 months in this purgatory we were let into the gates of Heaven, so to speak…

October. Hello L.A., city of Angels! It was such a blessing to make it here and so surreal to be here. Everything, from the drive to finding a good apartment in record time. The whole situation was in God’s hands and he worked everything out just perfectly…as one must learn to always trust Source to do. And L.A. is so beautiful! My goodness. Getting here just made it continuously clear that this is where we were supposed to be all along. The endless possibilities began to expose themselves to us. But don’t think its been all candy, cupcakes, and roses since we’ve been out here. We have had our share of struggles too since being here…mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, spiritually, etc.  But when you become in tune with God…and self…and the God in oneself these outward things start to shake you less and less as you continually see Him see you through, dropping just what you need from the heavens like manna. Allhamdulilah!

This is the work in progress that had been begun in me at the start of last year and I truly feel like I have passed the test and completed this step. Why? Because I feel like I have learned the lessons I was supposed to from 2013. The lesson of patience and knowing that things do not happen in your timing, but in God’s timing. And the plan is perfect. Energy takes care of it all. You just have to be patient, stay positive, and stay connected. Also, the lesson that there is a time for everything under the sun. A time for sickness and a time for health. A time for grief and a time for joy. A time of struggle and a time of prosperity. A time of building and a time of reaping the benefits of your labors. 2013 was the year of Building and Patience for me. And I whole-heartedly believe that 2014 is the time of Prosperity and Reward. Not just monetary richness (though, that too) but also richness in love, mind, body, spirit. I’m ready for it!

How are you guys feeling about the new year? What was 2013 like for you? What do you expect from 2014?

OOTD: Updo’s & Thrifted Pleasantries

An Outfit of the Day from a couple days ago…

Actually, it was last Thursday, which was an awesome day for a lot of reasons. It was my last day of Summer session I, my mommie and grammie came out to visit me, and they packed me down with a house full of groceries. I also got a job on Thursday for which I had to go in and do paperwork. As I watch my days’ progressions, it just amazing to see how many blessings God lays in my path. Can’t be anything but thankful.

Every piece of this outfit (minus the studs & rings) was thrifted at some point. Even the necklace, which was borrowed, is a vintage gold piece that was picked up in a thrift store. Ahh, I love my thrifty days. They give life to my inner frugal fashionista! The updo was a quick, easy twist on a simple hairstyle. If you guys want a tutorial, just let me know.
