Join me on the 30 Day Self❤Love Challenge!

The Journey to Self Love…

Imagine growing up never receiving any hugs or kisses, or being told “I love you”.

You never saw your parents display any love or affection towards each other.

As a young child, the lack of love within your home may have caused you to supress your true emotions, to lack the ability to give or receive love in a healthy manner, and to develop a healthy relationship with your Self.

As you grow up, you may seek love outside of the home in the form of promiscuity, gang life, drug dependency, or other self-harming ways.

You may have even been raised in a religious environment that spoke of God’s unconditional Love, yet still, you failed to experience this kind of love from your parents, because they themselves didn’t experience it.

You don’t realize that the root cause of your issues as an adult is a Self Love Deficit.  You weren’t taught how to love yourself, let alone how to love others.

You were taught to put others first, to put God first, and to put your own needs last.  So slowly, your cup became empty as you poured into other people’s lives, without giving to yourself.

If (like myself) you can identify with the above story, the journey to Self Love may be a long and tedious one. You’re going to have to fill your meter from a Self Love Deficit, to filling your Self with Love. Where would you say you are right now on that meter? (I’d say I’m about half way)

True Love is unconditional.

Do you love yourself unconditionally? If not, how can you expect others to?  When you give unconditional love to yourself, it will be reflected back to you.

I wish I’d known this years ago. Instead, I hated myself; I hated my looks, I hated my hair, I hated my skin, I hated my nose, I hated everything about me (apart from my teeth).

But I loved God.

How can I say I loved God when I didn’t love myself?

I wasn’t taught to recognize God within, I was taught to think of God as being outside of myself, somewhere beyond the clouds.

To truly put God first, is to recognize God within. When I say ‘God’, I’m referring to the Source of Love.

Yes, your Source of Love is within.

Come with me on a journey of Self discovery, the Journey to Self Love!

From 1st January 2019 I’ll be starting The 30 Day Self❤Love Challenge, and I’d LOVE you to join me!

To prepare, you will need;

▪A hand mirror
▪A drinking glass
▪Water
▪A notebook/journal/recording device

▪Optional extra: rose quartz crystal

For 30 days, we will perform 3 easy daily tasks, and an end of week Self Love Treat, designed to help fill us up with Love, until we can give of our overflow instead of a Self Love Deficit – if you like, you can get started right away!

1) As soon as you wake up and before you go to sleep, look in your mirror and tell yourself “I LOVE YOU”. Look straight in your eyes; this may feel uncomfortable at first, but the more you do it, the easier it will get.
2) Pour some water in a glass, put your love intention into it and say “I LOVE YOU” into the water to program it before drinking it.  This is based on Dr Emoto’s water experiment, and that we are made up of 70% water. (Click on the link below to The Self❤Love Retreat page to watch a short  video about the effects of words on water)

3) Repeat a Positive Affirmation to your Self each day, such as “I love myself unconditionally” 

We will end each week with a Self Care Treat that will help build Self Love.  Imagine, the more people doing The 30 Day Self❤Love Challenge will not only raise individual frequencies, but will help raise the Love frequency of the whole planet!

BE PART OF THE MOVEMENT!

You can either do The 30 Day Self❤Love Challenge on your own, with your partner, or a group of friends – this is for men too!  Share this page with your friends and family, we’re aiming to have at least 1,000 people ready to start on January 1st!  3 other facilitators will be joining me, each of us facilitating one week. You’ll get a prep video at the beginning of the week, daily emails to coach you on the Journey, downloadable worksheets, and a group call at the end of each week, all for FREE!  (If you want more individual attention, you’ll be able to pay for 1-2-1 coaching with the practitioner for that week).

Time to Plant Your Seeds!

According to the Law of Nature, ‘you reap what you sow’.  You can’t plant an apple seed and expect to harvest an orange.

If you want more LOVE, plant Seeds of Love; start by filling your Self with Love, so you will radiate love and become a LOVE MAGNET.  Then spread the love you feel inside to others.

If you’re suffering from a Self Love Deficit (like I was) spend time alone, look at yourself in the mirror (make eye contact with yourself) and say “I LOVE YOU”.  Do this a few times.  Secondly, Pour water in a glass and speak into it “I LOVE YOU”, then drink it. We do this on The Self Love Retreat, you can also do it as a 30 Day Self Love Challenge and see what happens! (Let me know!)

If you want better/stronger RELATIONSHIPS do kind things for others; practice the principles ‘do unto others as you would have them to unto you’, and ‘love your neighbour as you love yourself‘.  This includes:

  • Not gossiping about others behind their back
  • Helping others when you can
  • Giving/receiving freely

If you want better HEALTH, plant a health seed today; write a PLAN of how you intend to get fitter/healthier.  This might include:

  • Eating healthier meals/eliminating junk food
  • Adding more fruits, veg, seeds and food provided by Mother Nature to your diet
  • Drinking at least a litre of water a day
  • Eliminating white sugar, flour and dairy products
  • Exercising more, e.g. doing stretches when you wake up in the morning, or walking for at least 20 minutes a day.
  • Getting adequate sleep

If you want more MONEY, then plant a money seed, and make sure you plant it in FERTILE SOIL!

  • Save 10% of your income (give to yourself first)
  • Give to good causes
  • Help others in need when you can

These are all good seeds to plant, which will blossom in the future.  Again, the Law of Nature shows us that when you plant a seed today, it has to go through various stages of germination, budding, and growing before it reaches full bloom, or harvest.  The Laws of Nature never fail!  If you want more MONEY, today I’m giving you the opportunity to plant a money seed into FERTILE SOIL:  Make a contribution to The Self Love Retreat Fund so I can offer subsidized places on my Retreats!  This week, I teamed up with  Dawn Mbaatay (Organization) to build a VILLAGE; they are building Phase One, Numbi Village, and we will be building Phase Two, which will include a Retreat Home for those needing to come for Self-healing, read my Vision Statement for > Kai Ci Kurbi Healing Village < (Kai Ci Kurbi means ‘Come Home‘).

As we were on our way to the beach from  purchasing the land for Numbi Village, we came across this deserted government-owned land.

If you know me at all, I’m a visionary, and I make things happen! I’ve had this photo on my Vision Board for the past couple of years:

This is my vision of the view from our Retreat Home!

The man in blue, Ousman, says he owns the land, but it is ‘TDA’ which means the government has said it cannot be developed.  However, if we build a water-hole, and approach the government with plans for how we plan to develop the land, they will give some to us.  We are going to approach the government based on the fact that we are repatriates, and we need the land to build our village.  But we need to pool our resources together to buy the land, and develop it!

My Vision Statement is being drawn up into a professional Proposal to be submitted to the Gambian government, for how we plan to develop the land.  I live by the motto “Whatever the MIND can CONCEIVE, it can ACHIEVE – I can CREATE whatever I can IMAGINE!” 

Are you part of my tribe?

I’m seeking just 50 people who align with my vision, to build Phase 2, Kai Ci Kurbi Village;  this will involve investing to purchase the land (initially £150,000), and building the village.  At the moment, the land is reserved by the government, but we were told by Ousman that if we build a waterhole and show the government that we can build, they will give us some of the land.  If you would like to be part of this, send me a message: cezanne@journeyofasister.com

In the meantime, I’m planning on renting a Villa in the Gambia for two years to run the Retreats from, which will enable me to offer subsidized places on my retreats.  People will also be able to rent it for their own holidays, which will go towards the building project.  Make a contribution to The Self Love Retreat Fund  – if you prefer to contribute using Paypal, use the email: cezanne121@gmail.com

“Every day is a SEED to your future Happiness, Success, and Well-being; plant the seeds TODAY for the FUTURE you want to see BLOSSOM!” ~ Cezanne

Watch my video-poem:

The Laws of Nature never fail!  Depending on the seed you plant, will determine the harvest you receive – are you planting a FLOWER or a TREE?

I’m seeking to ‘build my tribe‘, if you align with my vision, Let’s Build a Village!  Read my Vision Statement, and make a contribution to the Fund – don’t miss out!  The names of all those who have contributed to the Fund will go on a list, to be able to receive subsidized rates for future Retreats.

Now that you’ve planted your seeds, expect a harvest – and remember, there’s a PROCESS!  Read my ARTicle ‘Use Your Subconscious Mind to Create the Life YOU Choose!‘ and join me on this wonderful journey of Self-actualization!

Plant your seeds and watch them blossom!

Plant Seeds of LOVE in the Garden of Your Mind! (Part 2)

This is why it’s so important that you guard your subconscious mind, in fact the job of your conscious mind is to guard your subconscious mind. See, your subconscious mind is like a young child; it doesn’t think or reason for itself, it simply accepts any information given to it from your conscious mind, the (adult) gardener as facts.  You can either plant your own seeds, or you can allow other people to plant seeds in your mind for you (this is generally what most people do).  Your conscious mind takes IN-formation through what you see and what you hear, which determine the seeds that you plant.  If this IN-formation is good, you’re going to feel good and plant positive thought-seeds.  If the IN-formation’s not so good, you’re going to feel bad and plant negative thought-weeds in your subconscious mind.  Now your emotions are the water which causes your thought-seeds to grow at a much faster rate.  This is the easiest way I can explain this process, so let me repeat it again; your emotions water your thought-seeds and make them grow that much quicker.  So for instance, if you allow your mind to be manipulated by the media, the news, and social media, your emotions will be all over the place.  One minute you’ll be reading a meme that makes you think “Oh, that’s so beautiful, life is wonderful, the universe is for me, I can do anything!” and you feel positive, optimistic, and loving.  Then the next minute you read or watch something that makes you think “Oh my god, how can this be happening in the world? That’s so wrong! Life is against me, I’m going to march to change it!” and you feel angry, frustrated, even depressed.  So there you go; you’ve just planted two different thought-seeds in your subconscious mind; one positive, and one negative –  just like your own garden; you plant a flower, and a weed will spring up right alongside it.  That’s what I love about Mother Nature, she’s the greatest teacher; if you want to know anything about life, just look at nature!  So as I was saying, you can plant seeds in your own mind, or you can allow others to plant the seeds for you.  That’s why I stopped watching the news over 15 years ago – it just made me feel depressed! I spend very little time on social media because I just don’t know what’s going to pop up!  I’m very careful about what I allow into my subconscious mind.

I can’t wait to get onto the role of the super-conscious mind, but first I want to make sure you understand – or innerstand – the roles of the conscious and sub-conscious minds.

So let me explain it again; your mind is the GARDEN, and your thoughts are the SEEDS.  Your conscious mind is the gardener, and your subconscious mind is the FERTILE SOIL into which the seeds are planted.  I first learnt this metaphor from the book ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill.  I’ve been thinking about being rich for a very long time – I had to, in order to change my religious programming of being a poor, wretched sinner. Why do I want to be rich?  So I can reach my full potential, and help others reach their full potential too; I want to be able to travel the world, and see all the beauty of Mother Nature; I want my three ‘suns’ to be able to travel too, so they can realize that there’s more to life than working a 9-5 job to pay bills. I want to be able to buy my house with cash, and I want to be able to inspire others to live their dreams too.  So what seeds are you planting in your subconscious mind? All thoughts are either rooted in LOVE or FEAR.  Those are the only two places that they can come from.  The root of all hateful thoughts is fear, so fear is the opposite of love, not hate.

If you look at my painting ‘Self Love‘, you’ll see that her thoughts are rooted in LOVE:

Her mind is the garden, and it’s growing beautiful flowers – not a weed in sight! You can’t see the root of her thoughts, because they’re buried underground, in her subconscious.  But you can see the results of her subconscious thoughts, the beautiful flowers.

So how do you know what your subconscious thoughts are? Now this is where it begins to get  interesting (if it wasn’t already!)…

In Part 3, I’ll show you how to get to the ROOT CAUSE of any issues you may be facing, and how you can begin the process of transforming your life for GOOD! Click here to read it!

Use Your Subconscious Mind to Create the Life YOU Choose! (Part 1)

Have you ever heard the saying that we only use 5% or 10% maximum of our brain power?  Do you believe it?  Well it’s not true, it’s that consciously we only use up to 10%  – the rest is the domain of our sub-conscious mind.

So how did I, Cezanne, a simple Artist, Poetess and Author come to learn about the power of our subconscious mind?

I stumbled upon this information because I had to figure out what was going on in my OWN mind.  I mean, I was multi-talented, but was failing at everything I put my hands to; I just seemed to keep sabotaging my success in my career, relationships, family, money – my whole life was a mess!  So I needed to study the mind in order to fix mine, and I had no idea that it would take me on such a beautiful journey, which I’m going to take YOU on now…

So let me start by explaining what the sub-conscious mind is, and how it relates to the conscious mind, and the super-conscious mind.  Are you ready?  Okay, use your imagination to picture an iceberg…there are two parts to this iceberg; the smaller part is above sea level; however the majority of the iceberg is underwater. The part you can see above water represents your conscious mind, and the majority of the iceberg which is underwater represents your sub-conscious mind. The word sub relates to being ‘under’, like submerged, submarine and sub-conscious.  Therefore your sub-conscious is the part of your mind that is ‘under’ – it’s unseen.  Your conscious mind is on the surface, that’s the part of your mind that you and everyone else relates to.  But your subconscious mind is the bigger part of the iceberg – the other 90%.  See?

Another metaphor I like to use when referring to the subconscious mind is of it being underground; your thoughts are the seeds, your conscious mind is the gardener planting the seeds, and your subconscious mind is the fertile soil that the seeds are planted into.  My painting ‘Black Orchid’ illustrates this perfectly:

The black background represents the dark soil of the subconscious mind.  Her thought-seeds are being planted into the fertile soil, which then goes through various stages of germination and budding, until eventually it reaches full bloom.  She looks happy, so she must be planting positive thought-seeds in the garden of her mind. The affirmation for this painting is “I am blossoming!” which also means “I am prospering!”

Now here’s the catch; whether your thoughts are POSITIVE or NEGATIVE, they still go through this same process.   So are you planting positive thought-seeds, or negative thought-weeds in the garden of your mind?

You can choose whether to grow flowers, or to grow weeds, or like most gardens, they can both grow side by side.  Your job as the gardener is to consciously uproot negative thought-weeds and replace them with positive thought-seeds, in order to keep the garden of your mind well cultivated.  Because whatever’s growing in your subconscious mind is going to blossom at some point, for all around you to see…

Watch my video-poem ‘Fertile Soil‘ to get a better ‘inner-standing’ of this process, which I wrote and recorded in 2009 when I was learning how to uproot my negative thought-weeds and replace them with positive thought-seeds:

I Am Fertile Soil!

What does it mean to have a ‘Fertile Mind’?

My poem ‘Fertile Soil’ from  my CD ‘Seeds of Love’ explains:

Chorus:

I am fertile soil

When I plant Seeds of Love

In the garden of my mind

They’re gonna blossom!

Verse 1:

Think of every thought you have as a SEED

The thoughts you sow, you will reap;

Thoughts rooted in Love will grow into beautiful flowers

And thoughts rooted in Fear will grow into fast-growing weeds!

(repeat Chorus)

Verse 2:

All thoughts are either rooted in LOVE or FEAR

(Fear is the opposite of Love)

Thoughts rooted in Love, will produce a harvest after their own kind,

And thoughts rooted in fear will produce a harvest after their own kind

So plant Seeds of Love in the garden of your mind!

(repeat Chorus)

Thoughts rooted in Love produce a harvest of health, wealth, happiness and peace

While thoughts rooted in fear produce a harvest of sickness, lack, poverty and disease!

Chorus:

I am fertile soil (rep)

When you plant your Seeds of Love

In the garden of my mind

They’re gonna blossom!

Cezanne Quote

(repeat Chorus)

Just remember, you reap what you sow…..

The process of ‘tending to the garden of your mind’ involves uprooting negative thoughts as soon as they spring up, and replacing them with positive thought-seeds:  Negative thoughts are like WEEDS, which if left unattended, will spring up fast and CHOKE your positive thought-seeds;  Mother Nature really has shown the way!

I am Fertile Soil

I used to suffer from depression, but when I learnt how to meditate, it helped me to control my negative thinking patterns.  My painting ‘Self Love’ flashed into my mind just as I was about to fall asleep one night in 2009.  I drew the image and painted it a couple of weeks later. It wasn’t long after this, that I started learning how to meditate.

‘Fruitful Mind’ (Male & Female)

Fruitful Mind Male & FemaleMy paintings ‘Fruitful Mind’ (Male and Female) compliment each other; they are symbolic of being ‘in the same place mentally’.  It helps if you surround your Self with people who are on the same wavelength as you mentally. The golden fruit symbolizes good thoughts that produce a good harvest.

Book Launch Review

I’m feeling totally inspired after the launch of my latest Self-help book ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger!’

How to Get the Ring On Your Finger Front Cover

Here’s some of the feedback I received:

“Thank You Cezanne for another fantastic event. It was very well attended, informative, healing, & it was also very nice to see so many Brothers in attendance, looking forward to reading the book, & the artwork that I won is absolutely beautiful; I think synchronicity is very much at play here; the photo reminds me of ‘Him’, I believe he was Heaven Sent & the day before yesterday he sent me a photo of himself wearing blue with his arms outstretched. Do I want a ring on my finger? I’d prefer chemistry, commitment, communication, elevation, motivation & trust, all of which I’m receiving & very grateful for. The gift of the artwork is the ‘confirmation’.  More power to you Sis, speak to you soon & enjoy your retreat in Ghana, DebRose x

(Debrose won a framed print of ‘Wings of an Eagle‘ in the Raffle – I Raffled 4 framed prints, a signed copy of both my books, and some laminated prints of my artwork)

Wings of an Eagle Products copy

“Excellent night! appreciated hearing the view points of some of the brothers who contributed to “How to Get the Ring On Your Finger” albeit, some of their views may have been a bitter pill to swallow! The fact you gave us the opportunity to get together in one space discussing relationships etc. Is a credit to u. Give thanks continue to shine sis. Look forward to the next event. Peace & blessings” ~ Ashanti Michelle

“The Aftermath: I will like to personally thank Cezanne Poetess for putting on such a magnificent night. It was such a pleasure becoming acquainted with so many Afro-Caribbean faces both old and new. The attendance was wonderful but even more so the contribution from the panel that included myself as well as the audience that in many ways became the panel. Their input was tremendous and the way you guys the audience welcomed my thoughts, clapped and smiled brought joy to a brothers heart so thank you for being so receptive. I would like to thank Cezanne Poetess once again for inviting me on this journey and giving me a seat on the panel. Hopefully we will have many more events like these because ‘How to get a ring on the finger’ is very important and not only are we talking a ring but commitment where in a generation that does or no longer exists. It’s about upbringing, it’s about changing a generational curse. It’s about good teachings. I would also like to Thank You Kwame McPherson for the very welcomed voice of know, I see a good brother when I meet one and your book is on the hit list” …… Author Darren Moxam www.darrenmoxam.com

“Thank you for tonight Cezanne, had such an enjoyable and thought-provoking evening.  Great people, great vibes, great cause!  I really wish you all the best on your journey, you are really an inspiration to me and I’m sure many more.  Keep up the great work!  God
bless you x”  Siobhan

“OMD! If you missed this event, you simply missed out. Firstly let me thank Cezanne Poetess for her gracious talent and artwork you are truly a soul sis-Star and I was delighted to win your Blue Lotus artwork, it will take pride of place in my home. Danni Blechner what an awesome pre birthday celebration eh, thanks for rolling with me Miss Entrepreneur or is it Mrs? Teehee. Darren Moxam you are magnetic and gifted with your words…in particular your response to my question about what a man looks for in a wife is enlightening. Yeah a man does want a best friend in his woman for sure. Author Kwame McPherson your poetry was so beautiful that I had to film it, you connected with me on a soul level and I felt every single word.  I learned men want love just as much as a woman does and once they get it they will indeed cherish their soul mate you know the one they cannot live with out. I sat down and I listened to all the panel answered my question ‘what is the top three things you look for in a wife’? and their answers were precise and in chorus they are ultimately seeking a woman to understand them and love them unconditionally. Here’s to: How To Get The Ring On Your Finger clink clink champagne glass mi thinks.  ***After tonight I am indeed ready for love and all that it brings I open my arms wide to receive it, not to squeeze it but to gently caress it and welcome love to my bosom. I am a woman strong, sexy and sassy, I vibrate and illuminate  After tonight my story is one of victory and strength in the stride of my thick thighs for I am the sum total made in the Creator’s image, perfect for the heart that is meant to love me, cherish and protect me. Tonight was not just about how to put a ring on your finger tonight was all about how to love you first. Be the love you want to receive” ~ Winsome Duncan

Watch a clip:

I started off by sharing my inspiration behind writing the book, and doing a minute’s Silence: my book launch was on the same day as my grandmother Lena’s passing over, and I acknowledged her, and all our ancestors who have made it possible for us to be here today:

Some of the brothers who contributed to the book sat on the Panel, read their contributions and took questions from the audience, which went down really well!  I asked the audience “What is a Soul Mate?” and we deliberated on this question, and whether we as Afrikans should be following the Western view on marriage and the ‘White Wedding’; should we be looking to get a ring on our finger, or should we be looking to get back to a more Afrocentric Spiritual Union?

Seeds of Love Lyrics FREE – ONE DAY ONLY!

First of all I’d just like to say a big ‘THANK YOU!’ to all who tuned into my first show ‘Pure Poetry’ on Nubia House Radio yesterday!

I really had fun even though I made a few mistakes (inevitably!) but I had some really good feedback and even Minty (the station owner) said he was impressed!

Next week I’ll be interviewing Griot Chinyere Nwaubani, organiser of the Sesa Wo Suban Afrikan Family Storytelling Festival taking place on Saturday 22nd June 2013.  I’m really happy to be taking part in this festival, as I have used the Sesa Wo Suban Adinkra Symbol in my Self-help novel – as it’s a symbol of Transformation.

Griot Chinyere will be doing some storytelling to give you a feel of what to expect on the night (Yes, it will be from 9pm-6am!)

Emma Ako from Carpe Diem will also be joining me to tell us about her event ‘Poetry Meets Art’ which aims to help increase awareness of the minerals conflict in the Congo.

Don’t miss it!

If you haven’t downloaded all 13 poems (mp3’s) from my compilation ‘Seeds of Love’, they are still FREE to download (get them while they’re free as they will soon be for sale in iTunes!) – and feel free to ‘like‘, share and Become a Fan! 🙂

Bring Back The Love Pt. 2!
I’m still buzzing from hosting last night’s event, it was fantastic!  4 drama sketches relating to Appreciation, Acceptance and Admiration were performed in front of a Guest Panel, with audience participation; the Panel and audience gave some really great feedback on the sketches performed, and it was filmed so I should be able to share some of the footage with you soon!  Apparently BAP (Black Arts Production Theatre) had feedback asking why I’m not on TV!  (Well I am now thanks to BlackVisionsTV!)

Hosting BBL2-2

I sold all the books I had, and unfortunately some people came to get my book but I’d run out!  I just want to let you all know that I don’t have a stock of books at home, they’re Print On Demand, so I only really print a few at a time, and when they’re gone, they’re gone!   However you CAN buy the paperback direct from Lulu, or if you want to get a signed copy from me, let me know in advance (they take 3-5 days to arrive) by emailing me at singlespiritualandsexual@gmail.com

All the poems from the CD ‘Seeds of Love’ which goes with my novel are available to download FREE for a LIMITED PERIOD ONLY (they will soon be on iTunes) from www.reverbnation.com/cezannepoetess – get them while they’re FREE!  And remember to ‘like’, share and become a FAN too! 🙂

And if you haven’t already, you can read Year One of my Self-help novel FREE at www.singlespiritualandsexual.com

Enjoy the wonderful weather this weekend!
