Review of last Sunday’s Breathology Workshop!

Last Sunday I had organised for Rev Dawnecia Palmer to come from Bristol to London to share some of what she teaches in her Universecity in the UK and USA on Breathology.

I could tell from some of the attendees faces, that they were challenged by her long, blonde wig/weave, as I had been when I first met her!  If you’ve read my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’, there’s a part which says ‘the worst case of Self-identity crisis had to be seeing my sisters wearing a long, blonde weave’.

Fortunately, I’ve evolved since writing the book three years ago – besides, the hair was synthetic, not human!

Rev. Dawnecia has such a strong sense of Self, more than many women I know who wear our hair natural!  (I’m including myself!) If I had allowed her hair to deter me from developing a relationship with her, I would have missed out on the opportunity to get to know this extraordinary woman!  The lesson for me was to look past the flesh, and look at the soul.

Here’s a short clip from the workshop:

Here’s the feedback we received:

“An experience in Ascension. Beautiful and engaging.”

“Really good, affirmed some of the things I’ve been learning from Spirit and didn’t realize where it was coming from.  Now I know.”

“I found it uplifting and it touched certain areas of my inner core.  I came with a headache and left without it. I am magnificent.”

“I have more of an awareness of my magnificence.  I will definitely be more aware of conscious breathing as opposed to taking breathing for granted. I feel more connected to Source as I realise breath comes from Source and if it’s in me then life, love, God is in me!!”

“Very thought provoking was of how I connect to my inner Self through my breath.  Many thanks.”

“Empowering experience to be among women learning an amazing message; powerful exercise; thinking through the breath.”

“Great vibration, nice overstanding, beautiful delivery.”

“Brilliant workshop, very informative.”

“I really enjoyed learning about what the soul is, and breathology. The Rev was always positive.  I will add breathing exercises in my meditation.”

“The workshop was amazing and informative.  It is a reminder of how to stay aware and to continue to be awesome.”

“Stimulating, with lots of practical tasks, fab! How to keep focused as a soul?”

“Thank you for sharing your experience. I am so excited to learn that all have known somewhere deep inside is being expressed, and I can learn more about myself and who I am through my breath.  You are a gift, thank you.  I cannot wait to learn more.  Your insight into who Jesus really is/was was beautifully expressed.”

“It was very useful, would like more indepth teaching. Really enjoyed it.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed it, came away with lots of pearls of wisdom.  Reverend Palmer was magnificent and helped fortify a lot of my own philosophy regarding breath and spirituality. I am really interested in the course…”

“One of the best workshops I’ve attended this year!”

“Attending the workshop was quite inspiring having had Rev Palmer explain the meaning of Awakening Magnificence and the many aspects through the art of breathology, was like a new beginning..”

“It was magnificent!”

Rev. Dawnecia is a pioneer in Breathology and Breathomics the Science of Soulification™.  She is also co-founder of The Magnificent Way™ a principle for wholeness and wellbeing. She is the visionary/Principal of Life Universecity LC and Soul Clinic focusing on Soul Health Education, consciousness transformation for self-empowerment and lifelong personal development.

At least two women began calling her ‘Divine’ after the workshop, but aren’t we all Divine? If you don’t believe that about your Self then you need to do her course!  If enough people sign up (minimum 10), Rev Dawnecia will be willing to travel to London once a month to teach the classes.

I gave my personal testimony at the workshop of how I used my breath to get out of a situation recently; I had just returned to my car, which had been playing up recently.  I turned the key in the ignition but it wouldn’t move, and the doors had automatically locked.  The windows (which were electric) wouldn’t open, and it was a blazing hot day – I thought I was going to suffocate!  I started to panic as I kept turning the key, with no luck.  Then I suddenly remembered to do my breathing, and without me doing anything, the doors suddenly popped unlocked!  Praise be to the Most High! I thought I was going to die, lol – I can laugh now!

I was honoured to be able to organise this taster workshop; if you would like to attend one in the future, or are interested in signing up for her Universecity (starts in September) send me a message:

No Ordinary Woman Chat Show Interview

NOWLast October I attended an event where I met Caz Mac, who was in the process of setting up the No Ordinary Woman Chat Show YouTube Channel.  She would be interviewing a number of ordinary women doing extraodinary things! I gave her a signed copy of ‘Journey of a Sister‘ to read.  Some time later she contacted me really excited, having just finished reading the book, and invited me for an interview!  We had a good connection because she identified with a lot of what I’d written about.  In this interview I share my inspiration behind writing both books, but it’s mainly focused on the one she read.  The video launched on the No Ordinary Woman Chat Show YouTube Channel last week, and is available to watch NOW! (No Ordinary Woman) 🙂

       Promoting LOVE through Creativity!

First Video in my series: Why the Black Woman MUST Heal! (HAIR)

I recently became clear about my Purpose: It’s to ‘Help the Black Woman to Heal’ just as I am; mentally, emotionally, and spiritually (including from ancestral trauma). We MUST heal in order to truly love ourselves. And Self Love is the ROOT CAUSE of many of our issues, especially our relationships!  It’s important for us to heal for a number of reasons; we are the core of our commUNITY. We are the ones raising the next generation. We are the core of the family. If we don’t re-build our family structures by re-building our relationships with our MEN, we cannot re-build our commUNITY!

This is the first video in my series ‘Why the Black Woman MUST Heal!’ which is all about our HAIR:

When we as Black Women ‘RE-MEMBER’ Who We Are, we will naturally develop Self Love, which doesn’t rely on outward appearance, it comes from deep within.

If you would like to join me on this journey of Self-healing and Self-discovery, start by reading my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’ from Year One FREE!  In it  shared everything I discovered after asking God for “the Truth!” in a beautiful, Black Love story format!

If you identify with the topics raised in it, consider joining me on our Self-healing journey, by coming on The Self Love Retreat in the Gambia in November or December (subsequent dates may follow). I’ve organized for us to spend 7 days at the Healthy Ways Foundation, with authors of the cookbook ‘Spicy Tasty Vegan Cuisine’, Dr Joe Gregory and Naasira Angeela Bledsoe. Not only are they our hosts, they have a wealth of experience regarding relationships, healthy eating, and much more to share with us! There are only 6 places on each Retreat, to ensure individual attention. (You can choose either from the first two weeks in November, or the first two weeks in December, 12 women each month)

If you would like more information about The Self Love Retreat come to the Taster Workshop on Saturday 1st July being held at Intuition House, Borough, South London (right next to Borough High Street station); the cost is just £25 which includes a FREE copy of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’, and if you decide to sign upon the day, the cost of the workshop (£25) will be deducted from the price of the Retreat! (£100 deposit will secure your place, the Retreat is priced at an introductory price of just £599!).

If you are unable to attend the Taster Workshop on July 1st but are interested in joining me on The Self Love Retreat, email me: cezanne@journeyofasister.com, and I will set up a Skype call to share the information!

All the topics covered in my video series ‘Why the Black Woman MUST Heal‘ are raised in my Self-help novel.  Order your personally signed paperback for just £9.99 with FREE delivery in the UK!

Why the Black Woman MUST Heal!

Over the past two weeks, I’ve become crystal clear about who I wrote my Self-help books for, and who I want to work with (predominantly).

Are you a Single Black Woman seeking to meet and marry your soulmate?

Are you in a relationship, and would like to know how to sustain it long term?

Do you have Self Love and Self Worth Issues? (be honest with your Self)

As a Black Woman raised in the UK in a Christian home, I received no love from my (single) mother, was indoctrinated into a religion which kept my mind in a fearful box, and received negative affirmations which seeped into my subconscious mind and became the program I ran on as an adult.  As a result, I grew up lacking Self Love, had poor Self-Esteem, and struggled with Self-Identity.  These in turn affected my relationships with my partners;  I turned down two opportunities to marry soulmates, and had my children with two men who either I didn’t truly love, or who didn’t truly love me.

My poverty mindset (received from my religious upbringing and negative affirmations as a child) also affected my ability to generate financial abundance.

Can you relate?

I know many of us share the same story, and it’s my job to work with you to help us heal – together!

Black Women Heal

I’m starting a series of videos explaining ‘Why The Black Woman MUST Heal!‘ from this week!  These will cover our Hair, Skin, Body Image (how we perceive ourselves), Ancestral Lineage, operating in our Feminine Energy (as opposed to our Masculine energy), Sex & Spirituality, Mindset (including mental health), learning about The Power of our Womb and Yoni, Child-raising, and much more!

All these topics are also raised in  my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’. I would love for you to read it so you can get an idea of where I’m coming from, and whether I’m someone you’d like to work with in your own Self-healing journey.  Start by reading Year One FREE! (<<< click on the link)

“I Need a MAN!” has gone VIRAL!

My poem “I Need a MAN!” has gone viral!  It’s been on my YouTube channel for over 2 years, but it wasn’t until my friend Gary downloaded it from YouTube and converted it into a regular video, that it has suddenly gone viral!  it’s been shared extensively, you may have seen it in a Whatsapp group, or on Facebook?  One of the videos posted in a FB group had over 800 comments, and 22 shares!

As is to be expected, the comments were both positive and negative, and people were questioning whether I was that woman, or just acting.  So I thought I should at least explain my thinking behind the concept!  First, here’s the video:

The original version is over 9 minutes long, and embodies 5 different types of Black Woman; The Career Woman (at the beginning of the video), who has spent the best part of her life building her career.  It has paid off in terms of material possessions, but her lack of investment in her relationships has left her man-less.  The poem also features the Conscious Sistar, the Single Mother, the Religious/Church Sister, and ‘Miss Bootilicious’, who is in touch with her sexuality.   (I’d say, there’s a piece of me in all of them!)

They all need a man, but they all have different needs!

For the record, I don’t live alone (I have three ‘suns’), I’m still working on having all the money in the bank I need, I don’t go ‘out with the girls’, I don’t have a King-sized bed, etc. etc. But I DO like ‘fullly melanated’ brothers, I DO need someone who’s business-minded, and am remaining celibate until I meet ‘The One’!

I wrote “I Need a MAN!” in 2009, which mentioned doing the ‘6 Month Test’.  When I was led to write the book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’ in 2013, it explained how to do the 6 Month Test fully. (FREE to download when you subscribe, or available on Amazon or Lulu in paperback).  This was not a conscious decision on my part!

Much of what I write is ‘auto-written’, (meaning I don’t have to think it up, it just comes through me).  The 6 Month Test will help you to avoid jumping into bed with a man (or woman) until you are sure the person is right for you.  It will help you build a solid foundation upon which to build a committed relationship leading to marriage as opposed to long (or short) term dating.

The poem was also an experiment in the Law of Attraction; what would happen if you get really clear about what you desire in a man (or woman), and write it down?  The power of the written and spoken word, is what this poem is all about.  Watch my recent live performance of “I Need a MAN!”

Listen to the full length version on my Soundcloud (some naughty bits in it, but nice!)

Today is Black Woman Heal Day!

Today is officially Black Woman Heal Day, founded by Lilada Gee in 2015.  The aim is to organise events, write blogs, and create forums where sisters can get information, share stories, and empower each other.

I would have liked to organise an event this year, but I’m attending the Woman to Woman Conference today, so I’ve decided to write a blog instead, with the aim of organizing an event next year…

Why The Black Woman MUST Heal:

The Black Womban is the Original Woman, the ‘Mother of All Nations’.

It has been scientifically proven that the oldest human remains is of a Black Womban.

She carries the original gene: Mitochondria DNA.  Men do not carry this gene, it can only be transferred from mother to child, which is where I believe the word inHERitance comes from! (I’ve covered the topic of MDNA in Year 8 of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’)

There is a secret war against the Black Womban; to prevent her from ‘re-membering’ who she is, to degrade her image (and that of her male counterpart) in order to destroy her family, and ultimately her whole commUNITY.

The Black Womban is the core of her community; in order to heal our community, the Black Womban MUST heal – for the sake of the next generation!

The Black Womban, being the Mother of All Nations, is pow-HER-full!  But we have forgotten our power.  Many of us have issues to do with our womb, relating to the foods we eat, the products we put on our skin and hair, and the toxic men we sleep with.  In order to heal, we must return to nature!  In order to heal our relationships, we must begin by healing ourselves, starting with Self Love!

Self Love A3 Poem

Ways we can heal:

  • Get in touch with our True Self, by spending time alone, sitting in the Silence, meditating, praying, taking notes.
  • Read (and implement) Self-help books, audios and videos that help us return to our natural state of being.
  • Get into nature at least twice a week
  • Use natural skin and hair care products (these sink into your bloodstream!)
  • Grow natural! (There’s a section in my novel which will help you innerstand why this is important)
  • Exercise your mind and body daily
  • Eat foods provided by Mother Nature
  • Learn about the power of your yoni and womb (covered in Year 8 of ‘Journey of a Sister’)

In a society which has turned everything upside down, where the truth is now a lie, and a lie is now the truth, it doesn’t take much to realize why the Black Woman and her male counterpart is under such attack.  Yet WE have the power to turn everything the right way around again!  We are POW-HER-FULL!

The source of our power is in our EMOTIONS and our INTUITION.  Yet if we continue operating in our masculine energy instead of our feminine energy, we will never be able to tap into our full pow-HER.  We will never take our rightful position on this planet , next to our Black Man, reigning side by side.

As melanin-rich people, we are naturally spiritual, and naturally sexual.

Religion has played a big part in separating sex from spirituality, but in this time we MUST heal, and put the two back together again.  I have gone into much more detail about this in my novel, preview Year One FREE! (click on link to open)

The Black Butterfly Effect

‘The Black Butterfly Effect’ is a process of transforming your MIND, in order to transform your LIFE!

Black Butterfly Original

When I painted ‘Black Butterfly’ in 2009, I had just started learning how to meditate in order to control my negative thinking patterns (I was in a deep state of meditation when I painted it!).  I was also studying Universal Laws; that your thoughts go out into the universe and leave an impression.  The more you have the same thought, the deeper the impression becomes.  These thoughts are eventually reflected back to you as your life (good or bad).

As a result of learning this, I began to really focus on managing my thoughts, and what I wanted to create (as opposed to what I didn’t want).

I wrote my poem ‘The Black Butterfly Effect’ in 2012 while going through a ‘Mind Fast’.  The poem uses the imagery of a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, to explain the process of transforming your mind:

First, you must protect your subconscious mind from all negative influences that do not support your vision; then you must ‘go within’ and get clear about what you want to create.  As you’re going through this process you’ll find it difficult, because your mind and body are used to doing things a different way.  But the more you practice your new way of thinking, your mind and body will eventually catch up!

In January I completed The 30 Day Mind Detox in which I ‘cocooned’ myself from the outside world and focused on going within and getting really clear on what I wanted to achieve this year, and the years ahead.  Once I was clear, I created a Vision Board based upon my set intentions.  Already, things have started to MANifest!  I will share more about this later on this year, but for now, if you’d like to start the process of transforming your mind, begin by reading my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’ (for brothers too!).  The main character goes through a complete transformation; of her mind, her relationship, and her Self-identity.

I’ve used the Adinkra symbol ‘Sesa wo Suban’ throughout the book, as it is the symbol of transformation:

Adinkra Symbol for Transformation

Are you ready to Transform?

Join Suzanne on her transformational quest for “The Truth!” about sex before marriage, the creative power of her thoughts, her African ancestry, and the history of the religion she had been indoctrinated into!    It includes her hair journey, the transformation of her relationship, and discovering True Love!  It is a beautiful Black Love story with lots of wisdom, which thousands of women and men can relate to. Start the journey by reading Year One FREE!
