OOTD: BDAY || 23 Earthstrong

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 am entirely GRATEFUL.

Grateful to have family & friends that genuinely care about me.

Grateful to be living my life in the city I have always dreamed.

Grateful for vision, creativity, and inspiration.

Grateful for all the love in my life.

I am as passionate & inspired as ever to fulfill my God-given destiny in the Earth, and live my dreams in the process.

And as I turn 2-3

{2+3 = 5}

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!


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 🙂

Connected & Inspired: Superior Life Energy


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. 😉

Namaste, Folks!

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.


(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!!!

❤ Hello February ❤


It’s February, whoo! AQUARIUS SEASON!!!!!!!!

Now I’m not excited because I’m an Aquarius or anything (proud Leo, baby, ALLLL DAY *rawr*). But I’m excited for a couple of other equally as important reasons.

  1. Triiin’s 21st birthday is this month (February 7th. Whoop, yes she IS an Aquarius!) Last year me & Caryn made some supreme awesomeness go down for Triiin’s bday (*cough, cough* strippers, surprise smokers party,etc.*cough, cough*. I wonder how we shall top ourselves this year??? Hmmm.
  2. I’m thankful to have made it to the 2nd month of 2014. Source has continued to grant me Divine awesomeness, favor, and grace.
  3. We are now, astrologically, in the age of Aquarius. Have been since the winter solstice of 2012 (yes the big hooplah the Mayans were REALLY talking about.) This age of Aquarius is supposed to be an exciting time for Earth on a spiritual and physical plane.  In this, still new, age of Aquarius I cant help but believe that Aquarius season would only amplify these effects and be a wonderful, progressive, and blessed time for all of us. I’m intrigued and excited to see what this month holds!
  4. It’s Black History Month. Though it burns my soul that black history is not simply a part of history and is only celebrated and mock-apprecited a mere one month out of the year, I take advantage of any moment set aside to celebrate my African roots (as a black woman) and promote the learning of more than just the history that is taught in schools. There is so much hidden truth out there. Hopefully people delve into the real origins of the black race and the truth of our history. Probably not, but a girl can dream right?
  5. Valentines Day is this month! Yayyyy! :). I know its cheesy in some ways, but hey whats wrong with an occasion committed to showing love?? Nothing! We need to show a little more love to each other so lets take every opportunity to do so, eh? Here’s what I say to do this Valentine’s day, especially if your feeling a little annoyed by the typical notions of the day of love. Lets make V-day this year truly about showing love to our fellow man. Show love to your significant other and all the normal jazz, lavish them with kind words, nice things and good treatment if you shall.  Nothing is wrong with that. But know that spreading love can be something as little as complimenting someone you wouldn’t normally, smiling at someone who looks upset, giving the homeless man on the corner a sandwich and some change. Whether you have a lover this V-day or not, there is always someone out there who needs love, YOUR love. Give it to them.

Are you excited for February like I am?
