Sitting in the comfy confines of this uber hipster coffee shop, while combing over the events of the last month. It has been one hell of a ride.
Everyone is either going through a storm, coming out of one or about to go into one. - Ernestine Jones
I, like most others often believe I know what I'm doing when it comes to this thing called life. We create plans, and lots of us have amazing intentions (they're not always translated in the direction of said intention), however, just when we truly believe we have it all figured out, life shifts without our permission.
A month ago, I believed that the visions that had come to me were in full, but I truly know better than this as visions and prophecies are ALWAYS revealed in parts, but being pressed for an answer, I fully embraced the partial vision and planted. God laughed a hearty one at my naive expense, then on His timing, he revealed yet another piece of the puzzle.
One of my absolute superpowers is my innate ability to remain flexible, making life much easier to navigate. So, when that nugget of information unveiled itself, I embraced it with open arms and shifted right along with it. I began making arrangements, ridding myself of excess and preparing for my upcoming journey.
In my preparations, I asked the Universe to place the right folks along my path and to keep me protected as I fulfill the orders and duties of the Most High. He sent me into the world to shed light upon it and it's something I'm used to doing, but not at such heightened levels. See, about a year ago I asked God to "elevate me, spiritually". Well, He did just that. I was completely unaware of what that may look like, but I was down for the ride, yet had I known it would consist of some of the hardships I've endured over the past 3 months, I promise with every fiber of my being, I wouldn't have asked for it.
But, I'm so grateful that I did--along this journey I've met some incredible humans, done things (positive) that I wouldn't have EVER done just 6 months ago, advanced all of my talents and most importantly, deepened my spiritual awareness, inner peace and divine connection and unconditional love with the Creator.
By, no stretch of the definition has this been easy as I've shed tears, had breakdowns, shed some more tears and found incredible joy and growth in it all. The struggle isn't meant to break any of us, it's meant to be a teaching tool for growth and evolution and to find joy and peace within, so we can be elevated to the next phase of our lives. Growth is usually, intensely painful, which is why I've learned so many people are opposed to it (because, who has time for solicited pain, right?!), but it's imperative for us to use and build from the stabbing pain as in the end, it's worth it.
So, I humbly advise, if you're going through Hell, keep going as I promise there is a reprieve, light at the end of the tunnel and just rewards. May God bless each and every one of you, may you be fulfilled, find inner peace and joy and that your cups runneth over so it can be shared with the world.

*Swish, scratch, swish*...went the brushes and palm swipes of seven-subtly, eager artists against their roughly-textured and prepped canvases. Resonating incredibly soothing feels, like a medium-bristled brush being lovingly and carefully raked through her hair. It gave her the chills (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
She, steadily walked down the busy road, yet there were no appropriate sidewalks and cars were whizzing by. At any given time, there may have been a million questions/comments/thoughts/replays/intentions and words traveling along the synapses of her nerve endings, overflowing her system and blowing her mind (click to read more of the sample and purchase)...
