Magnificent Way Flyer

Join us this Sunday at Katakata, 132 Brixton Hill, London SW2 1RS for a workshop on how to use your breath properly to influence the world around you!  Most people take their breath for granted, but when you’ve had a near-death experience you truly cherish each breath that you take!  Rev. Dawnecia Palmer has such a story of dying for a day, during which time (if there’s really such a thing as time!) she crossed over to the other side, and now teaches what she learned about the proper use of our breath!  For full details and to book your £5 ticket visit Eventbrite.  Rev Dawnecia is an ordained minister with the CoE, and also runs her Universecity both in the USA and UK where she teaches everything she learned during the day that she died (which she said seemed like a thousand years).  She will be travelling down from Bristol, so don’t want to miss this!   Booking is essential, BOOK YOURS NOW! (Only 20 tickets available). No need to cook, vegan food and freshly squeezed juices will be on sale!

Katakata is easy to get to; from Brixton station turn left and take any bus going up Brixton Hill (e.g. 250, 109, 59) and get off at Jebb Avenue).  If you’re driving, there’s plenty of free parking on nearby streets!

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!

Rise of the Feminine Energy

After asking God for ‘the Truth!’ in 2007, I exited the church,  and spent 3 years in the black ‘conscious’ community.

My conclusion was that both organizations suppress the Feminine Energy, and until the woman gains her rightful position in both organizations,  attendees of both will never achieve their full potential.

Religion was used to blame the woman for the fall of humanity, which allowed the establishment to become male-dominated, and to make women subservient to men.  It is the male ego that is the cause of most of the problems in the world today!

The masculine and feminine energies are different from each other, yet are meant to compliment each other.  The man and woman should stand side by side, not one ruling over the other.  Women are naturally more intuitive and receptive to spiritual guidance.  Men have the drive and strength to push things forward.  Men must have vision, while womben help to give birth to those visions.  In ancient Kemet (renamed Egypt by the Europeans after they invaded), the Queens reigned alongside their Kings, who relied on the women for counsel before making decisions.  Women held high positions throughout all African society.

rule-side-by-side

When Africa was invaded and colonized, the first thing Europeans did was to destroy the family, which was the core of the commUNITY.  As the woman was the nucleus of the family, they focused on breaking down her psyche, by destroying the image of her male counterpart, and her own image.

So today, our relationships are suffering because our women have lost their status and identity.

In order to restore our relationships, and our commUNITY, the womban must take her rightful place: alongside the man, not behind him, or under him.   Look at what Barack Obama was able to achieve with Michelle alongside him!

My Self-help book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’ goes much deeper than the title.  It looks at how our past has affected the way we relate to each other today, and how even living in a Western society with Western ideals about relationships, is killing our family structures.

The subject of women looking like women but acting masculine came up time and time again, which even made me practice operating more in my Feminine Energy!  It will help you identify the root cause of your relationship issues so that you can heal, before seeking to attract your soulmate. By healing ourselves individually, we will heal our relationships, and ultimately our whole commUNITY.  You can download it FREE by subscribing, or if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow it from their lending library FREE!

TOMORROW (9th Feb): Book Signing & Discussion Event & Film Screening of ‘Southside with You’ (the story of Michelle and Barack Obama’s First Date!)

Join me at Harlesden Library from 5-7pm to discuss the topics raised in ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’.  If you’re not able to make the Book Signing, you can meet me at Regent Street Cinema where I’ll be performing my poem ‘R U The One?’ before the film starts!  (my books will also be on sale)
