I actually found the topic ‘The Black Butterfly Effect‘ in an old journal I’d written back in 2012; at the time I was doing a ‘Mind Fast’ which inspired my writing.  The article I’ve written is adapted from my journal, and also includes the inspired poem I wrote around the same time!  Visit www.sheinspiredher.com to read it, and to listen to the poem!  If you enjoy the article, join me on my 30 Day Mind Fast which starts next January (I’ll be helping you prepare for it in between!)

Over the next 5 days of the Blog Tour you’ll also be able to read Year One of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’ FREE!  The main character has a dream based on  ‘Black Butterfly’, and the theme running throughout the whole story is of transformation; I’m aiming to print the Revised Edition with my artwork in full colour so YOU can benefit from the COLOUR THERAPY in them, watch the video I put together this morning to explain!

We should serve each other!

When I wrote my poem ‘I Need a MAN!’ back in 2009 (above), it was all about MY wants and needs.  I wasn’t thinking about what I could bring to the relationship, it was all about me, me, ME!

But 7 years later, I’ve come to the realization that for relationships to truly work, we should approach them with “What can I GIVE?”

If you both have the attitude of serving each other and making each other happy, the relationship stands a much better chance of survival!

Recently I watched a webinar by Tony Dada and his spiritual mentor bro Ishmael Tetteh (who lives in Ghana).  What stuck in my mind was something bro Ishmael said;

“If you want to be happy don’t get married, but if you want to MAKE someone happy, get married.”

Profound, isn’t it?

What if we all approached our relationships with the attitude to serve, not to be served?

The greatest Truth I have learnt is that we are all gods and goddesses, and that our body is the temple of our in-dwelling Holy Spirit (the part of us made in the image and likeness of the Great Creator).  Our relationships are therefore HOLY GROUND.  With this knowledge, we should seek to worship each other!  Reverence each other! Adore each other! Praise each other!  (Who doesn’t love receiving praise?) Why do we worship, adore and give praise to a God we cannot see, yet treat our own brothers and sisters as if they are unworthy of our love, devotion, time, energy and money?

This reminds me of the scripture 1 John 4:20 which says ‘how can you say you love God who you cannot see, yet you treat your own brother or sister like sh*t? (paraphrasing!)  Right there, you can see that to love God IS to love your fellow human being!

In Year One of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’,  while on their First Date, Suzanne asked Charles how he knows his life is right with God if he doesn’t go to church?  His reply was;

“Well…”  Charles paused to think carefully before responding;

“God lives inside me, that’s why I don’t feel I need to go to church to find him. Plus, I don’t see anywhere in the bible that says you should go to church every Sunday.” 

“True, but it does say not to forsake the gathering of the brethren.”

“Yes, well I’m more interested in relationship than religion.”

“But how can you have a relationship with God if you refuse to mix with his people?”

 “I don’t; his people are everywhere, not just in church – I serve God every day by serving my fellow human beings. I see God in every body…I see God in YOU.”

date

So you see, by acknowledging God in every person you relate to, your relationships become HOLY.  Imagine how our relationships (and the world!) would transform if we treated our friends, family, colleagues and partners with the same reverence we give God – and they did the same?

In order for our relationships to work, we have to put the spirituality back into them.  With ‘God’ in the centre of our relationships, they are bound to succeed!

Look in the mirror and say to your Self: “I am becoming consciously aware of who I am (a god/goddess).  My body is my temple.  My personal relationships are the most important element in this process, therefore they are holy ground.  I see all those I am in relationship with as sacred souls on a sacred journey.  I will always strive to see the god/goddess in every body, even when they are showing me less.” (extract from Year Four)

I no longer need a man, I need a god whom I can serve, and who will treat me like a goddess – and I serve God by serving my fellow human beings.

That’s growth.

FREE READ! How to Get the Ring On Your Finger (with contributions from over 30 brothers)

Out of respect for the brothers who contributed to it freely, I have made the newly-revised version of my Self-help book How to Get the Ring On Your Finger FREE to read on this blog! (Just click on the link to open the PDF).

htg-book-cover-design2

If you enjoy the FREE read, feel free to make a contribution towards my Book Tour:

I decided to revise it to take into consideration some of the comments made at the Book Launch of the First Edition – the front cover design was inspired by something one of the  brothers (who’s now happily married) said: “The ring is the smallest handcuff ever created by the white man” – if you’re wondering how I did the chain joining the rings, it was from this:

gold links

I also wanted to re-write my ‘her-story’ to explain the real reason why I never married despite having the engagement ring on twice!

The beautiful thing about this book is that I seem to have attracted like-minded men to offer their advice, so in every instance they are backing up what my own inner guidance was saying!

The book goes much deeper than ‘getting the ring on’; it looks at our past history which has affected the way we relate to each other today, and offers SOLUTIONS on how we can heal ourselves and progress to health, happy, fulfilling sustainable relationships – but it starts with healing ourselves individually.

Once we have identify our personal issues and healed from them, this book offers a PLAN to getting the ring on by introducing the ‘DIY Arranged Marriage’.  This involves doing the ‘6 Month Test’, and climbing the Ladder to Dating Success.  If you follow all the steps given, you are almost guaranteed to get the ring on!  (If that’s your desire).

Wedding Rings

If you are a brother reading this book, even better, as the process is best done together!

Sex with the EX

2014Cezanne8888D2-65

If I had taken my own advice, I wouldn’t have had sex with the EX earlier this year.

But when he called me up out of the blue after 5 years, saying he could ‘hear my voice calling him’, I thought he was being sincere.  Partly because I had just finished watching ‘The Secret’ DVD, and he crossed my mind; I remembered giving him my first copy when we were dating, and wondered if he’d ever watched it.  Then I checked my emails…and BAM! There was a message from him, coming via this very same blog!  Obviously, I thought it was a ‘sign’.

I don’t know what came over me to be honest.  It’s not as if I was that physically attracted to him.  ‘But after two years of celibacy, I was feeling horny, and not wanting to sleep with just anybody…’ I thought he’d do.  Better the devil you know, right?

Wrong.

My poem ‘Sex with the EX’ (which I wrote in 2007) would have been a good reminder for me, if I’d taken the time to listen:

It was like a replay of what happened all those years ago to make me write the poem in the first place!  I’d been celibate for two years, my ex called me up out of the blue, and even though he didn’t tell me he was seeing someone else, it didn’t take me long before I realized I was wasting my time and inner-g.  Us women are very intuitive, but sometimes we ignore our gut feelings.  We want it to work so bad.  But the thing with the ex is; if it didn’t work first time around, what makes you think it’s going to work this time?

‘So ladies, next time you fancy some sex and you think of your ex – keep your fantasies in your panties where they belong, and don’t try to turn them into reality…’

So from now on, I’m going to take my own advice.  Next time an ex contacts me out of the blue, I’m going to tell him ‘Next time you think of me, don’t call me, don’t text me, don’t even email me.  See I’m not looking for a fling, I’m looking for my King….’

Sex with the EX didn’t make much sense, but it certainly made a good POEM…

Extract from Year Three: Life Path Number

Extract from Year Three:  Life Path Number

…Charles suddenly started looking for a notebook and pen, and announced “Right, let’s work out your Life Path number, shall we?”

“What’s a Life Path number?” Suzanne questioned, intrigued.

“Well, according to Numerology, your Life Path number is the most important number relating to your birth.  It reveals the road you’re travelling, and gives a broad outline of the opportunities, challenges, and lessons you’ll encounter in your life. It’s simple to work out, so let’s start with your date of birth; 5th of November…what year were you born again?”

“1974”

“Okay, so first we’re going to reduce each unit of your birth date to a single digit, so we take the number 5 from the day you were born, the number 11 from the month you were born, then we reduce the numbers in the year you were born to a single digit.  See?”

Charles wrote down all the numbers to demonstrate:

5

11

= 21  (2+1=3)

“Then you add them all up”:  5 + 11 + 3 = 19

“Why haven’t you broken down the 11 to a single digit?” Suzanne queried.

“Good question, you’re on ball!”  Charles commended her for spotting it.

“The number 11 is a ‘Master Number’.  The Master Numbers, 11, 22 and 33 are the only numbers you don’t reduce to a single digit.  But even if we did, in your case we’d still end up with the same Life Path number.”

“How do you mean?”

“Well so far your Life Path number adds up to 19, but if we reduced the 11 to a single digit, we’d end up with 10.  See?”

Charles added them up again:

5

1 + 1 = 2

1 + 9 + 7 + 4 = 21  (2+1=3)

5 + 2 + 3 = 10

“So is my Life Path number 19 or 10?”  Suzanne asked.

“Neither.  We still have to reduce the two digits to a single digit.  In your case, both the 19 and 10 reduce to a 1.”

He showed her on paper what he meant: 1 + 9 = 10 (1 + 0 = 1)

1 + 0 = 1

“Suzanne, your Life Path number is 1.  Do you know what that means?”

“I have no idea!” she responded in anticipation, knowing he would enlighten her.

Charles reached for his Numerology book and flipped to the right section: “Being a number 1 makes you… ‘A natural born leader; you insist on the right to make up your own mind; you demand freedom of thought and action. You have drive and determination. You don’t let anything or anyone stand in your way once you are committed to your goal.  You are exceptionally creative and original and possess a touch of the unusual. Your approach to problems is unique and you have the courage to wander from the beaten path.  You perform best when you are left to your own devices. Ideally you should own your own business and be your own boss. Hold fast to your life’s dream and work with the determination you possess to realize it’.”

He paused to look up at her before adding “It also says ‘Don’t let pride and over-confidence be your masters. Remember, your talents and abilities are a gift from a Higher Source, which should promote gratitude and humility, rather than pride and conceit.  More often than not a person with a ‘1’ Life Path will achieve much in life as long as the drive, creativity, originality and pioneering spirit are fully employed.’

“Wow, that’s amazing!” Suzanne said in a surprised tone; “that sounds just like me – how does it work?”

“Pretty much along the same lines as Astrology; it’s the same science,” Charles informed her.

“Gosh… everybody should know what their Life Path number is!  What’s yours?” Suzanne asked him.“Astrology deals with the way the planets were aligned on the day you were born, while Numerology deals with the numbers in your birth date.  Both can give accurate descriptions about the potential your life holds, and what you came here to do – but you still have ultimate freedom to do with your life as you choose; you can fulfill its potential completely, or make some smaller version of your Self. It all depends on the effort and commitment you put in; however, the possible ‘you’ is contained within from the moment you were born.”

“7”

“Read yours then!”

Charles proceeded to read about his Life Path;

‘The 7 Life Path is the seeker of Truth.  You have a clear and compelling sense of your Self as a spiritual being.  As a result, your goal is devoted to investigations into the unknown, and to finding the answers to the mysteries of life.  You possess a fine mind; you are an analytical thinker who is capable of great concentration and theoretical insight.  You enjoy research and putting the pieces of an intellectual puzzle together.  Once you have enough pieces in place, you are capable of highly creative insight, and of practical solutions to problems.’

“Oh, no wonder we get on so well – we’re both Truth-seekers!  So are 1 and 7 compatible?”

“They could be!” Charles replied cheekily.

He then proceeded to work out the rest of Suzanne’s Core Numbers and explained them to her as he went along.  He explained that the day she was born also held significant meaning, and reading from his book, explained to her what being born on the 5th meant: “…Five  represents change, non-conformity, individualism, travel and adventure –

“I like the sound of that!” she interrupted; “I’ve always wanted to travel!”

“Well it’s written in your stars,” Charles affirmed, looking at her intently.  Going back to his book he continued; “Five signifies opportunity, resourcefulness, and risk.  5 is extremely multi-talented and versatile, persuasive, sensual, magnetic, entertaining, scientific and analytical.  5 carries the magical mystique of quintessence that helps us experience the wonders of life.  This vibration is the innate healer and teaches us to be flexible and adaptable.

Looking up at her he smiled as he added;

“I can vouch for that.”

Why Change the Title?

When I returned from Ghana in March I thought I’d finished revising my novel.

When I published Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual! in 2011, I was eager to share everything I’d been learning about the creative power of the mind, Universal Laws, and the his-story of the religion I’d been indoctrinated into.  I though this new way of thinking was finally going to help me to begin creating my life how I wanted it to be.

But 4 years later, I’d made little progress financially.  This made me go back to my Creator and ask “So what was all this about?”.  Well, this opened up a whole new can of worms!

If you’ve read the book, in the first chapter I was questioning God about the Fall of Lucifer story, and why God had allowed Lucifer and his ‘minions’ to corrupt His creation (us).  This to me, was the root cause of all the world’s problems today (and mine, as I’d been taught in church).

I haven’t watched tell-lie-vision in over 10 years, so I wasn’t up to speed on current affairs.  But I started watching YouTube videos about the Illuminati and the New World Order agenda.  I learnt that many pop stars and film stars were selling their soul to the devil for fame and fortune, and that the Luciferian agenda was to do away with all religions and create one New religion: Luciferianism – in other words, they want us all to worship Lucifer, like them!

If you watch mainstream TV or listen to mainstream music, you’ll notice that everything ungodly is promoted, even down to sexualizing children.  Most of it is so subtle that you don’t pick it up on a conscious level, but it goes through to your subconscious mind.  I watched YouTube videos where film and pop stars admitted openly to selling their soul to the devil, to being possessed so they could perform better, and to worshiping Satan.

As you can imagine, I panicked at first, but then I realized the importance of my book even more.

The ‘powers that be’ are using our minds (mass consciousness) to achieve their goals, and religion is one of their greatest tools for mind control.  The biggest issue single Christians have to deal with is the ‘no sex before marriage’ rule.  As a single black woman, the chances of getting married are something like 10-1.  As a Christian woman, what do you do?  Well, I discovered that ‘fornication’ doesn’t actually mean ‘sex before marriage’, and I’ve explained what it DOES mean in the revised version of my book!  There are some other major changes I’ve made, but I urge you to read the original version first, as some of the information I’ve taken out in order to keep the word count around the same.

The revised version will have a new title and cover design (watch this space!).  I decided to change the title to appeal to a wider market, including the church.

You can still get the original version in glossy PAPERBACK on LULU.COM

‘Rise of the Phoenix’ poetry CD Coming Soon!

Full Book Cover Rise of the Pho copy

This is the cover design for the Book of Lyrics to my latest CD ‘Rise of the Phoenix’ (I designed it my Self!), what do you think?  The CD is due out at the end of this month; I just sent off for a draft copy of the Book of Lyrics to see how it looks in print – can’t wait!!! You can listen to some of the poems on my Soundcloud:

Some of these poems were never going to be released (like ‘BEWARE THE VAMPIRE!’) because I’m now ‘in the light’, but after listening to them again, they all have a message in them!

I’m still working on the final poem: ‘Black…Scorpio…Woman!’

It’s the hardest poem I’ve ever had to write! I started doing the research for it 3 years ago; it’s all based on Astrology, Numerology and Cosmology!  By the time I get the print version of the book (I left a space where the poem should go), I’m aiming to have the poem finished.  Then all I have to do is record it, so I’m well on track to having the CD out by the end of this month!

You can pre-order your signed copy of the CD with its Book of Lyrics for only £9.99 from www.singlespiritualandsexual.com/Products

My Collaboration with a German Poet

I wouldn’t normally update my blog in the middle of the week, but I’ve had an interesting few days and I wanted to tell you all about it!

Over the weekend, I received a friend request on Facebook from a man in Germany called ‘HeiligGeist DeutschChill‘.  I don’t normally accept request from random people, but I saw that he was married, a Christian, and living in Germany so I thought “Why not?”

He inboxed me some music he had produced, and I sent him the link to my Soundcloud so he could listen to some of my Christian poems.  He liked them, and asked if I could put my voice to some of his music.  He said he’s been looking for a singer for the last 4 years, so I told him I’m more of a Spoken Word Artist than a Singer!  Anyway, he emailed me the track, with the lyrics that he wanted me to sing to.  He also sent me a voice recording of him reciting the poem, and since he had written the poem in both English and German, I asked him to send me a recording of him reciting the poem in German as well.  This was on Sunday.  We connected spiritually, and I was so inspired by the music and words that I worked on it all day on Monday, and this is the result which turned out to be a very meditative track:

This was a major paradigm shift for me because I never considered that the ‘white male’ would be someone I could work with.  It was only recently that I ‘opened my mind’ to working outside of the ‘black conscious community’.

SSS5

I directed him to where he could read Year One of my Self-help novel ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual! FREE, and after reading it, he was inspired to write this poem:

Transformation
A Prayer Poem
By Heilig Geist (inspired by Cezanne Poetess)

What is the
Meaning of life
Asking in
Deep contemplation

Getting to the
Bottom of the
Real important
Things and issues

The deepest desire
Developing a deep
Relationship to
GOD

But how to get
How to go
How to ask
How to think

Reading the bible
No
Praying with words
No

Serving HIM
Desiring HIM
Crying for HIM
Going to church for HIM

No
Nope
No
Nope

It´s feeling HIM
Opening the heart
Opening the spirit
Opening all for HIM

Being one
With HIM
With You
With nature

Feeling
The wonder
Of HIS creation
Of HIS nature

This is a
Transformation
For me – from
Thinking to feeling

A new born

Sinn des Lebens
Fragend in
Tiefer Kontemplation

Vordringen bis auf den
Grund der
Wirklich wichtigen
Dinge und Themen

Die tiefste Sehnsucht nach einer
Entwicklung einer tiefen
Beziehung zu
GOTT

Aber wie bekomme ich heraus
Wie es weiter geht
Wie man weiter fragt
Wie man denkt

Lesen der Bibel
Nein
Beten mit Worten
Nein

Ihm dienend
Nach IHM wünschend
Für IHN weinend
Für IHN in die Kirche gehend

Nein
Nicht
Nein
Nicht

Es ist IHN zu fühlen
Das Herz zu öffnen
Den Geist zu öffnen
Alles für IHN zu öffnen

Eins sein
Mit ihm
Mit dir
Mit der Natur

Das Erfühlen
Des Wunders
Seiner Schöpfung
Seiner Natur

Dies ist eine
Transformation
Für mich – vom
Denken zum Fühlen

Ein neu geborener
Treuer
Tief gläubiger
Christ

Halleluja und

Amen!

When I finished writing the novel in 2011, I knew I wasn’t where the main character was in the story; she reached a point where she began to view every body as a Divine Spirit living in a human body.  I was still hung up on the black-white issue, the effects of slavery on Black people, and such like.  I’m still not 100% free of this mindset, but the lesson this has taught me is to keep an open mind, and to be open to all opportunities that come my way.

I feel another collaboration coming on!

Stay blissed!
