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!

The Truth about the Letter (featured in Year One)

In Year One of my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’ the main character Suzanne wrote a fearless letter to God asking all the questions the church couldn’t answer, and ended it by asking for “the Truth!”

She knew many of her brothers and sisters in Christ wanted to ask these same questions but were too scared for fear of God’s wrath, so she decided to stand in proxy for them.

The letter boldly questioned the Adam and Eve story, which opened the door for religion to make women subservient to men.  It also questioned the whole battle between God and the devil, which we, God’s creation, are supposedly caught in between.  The letter further questioned God’s ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ character; on one hand loving the world so much that He sent His only son as a blood sacrifice for our ‘sins’.  Yet on the other hand, the bible portrays God as this vengeful, jealous figure who had anger management issues.  Not only did He strike people dead with plagues, famine and war whenever he felt like it, He also supported groups of people in raping, plundering and killing others and stealing their land and inheritance.  Suzanne couldn’t relate to this second character, as she had only experienced God as Pure, Unconditional Love.

She asked why, even after praying in the name of Jesus, meditating on His word, and even fasting sometimes, she still had so many needs.  She had hit rock bottom when she wrote the letter, which marked a turning-point in her life.  She desperately wanted to figure out how to get her life to work.

Now, the truth about the letter:

While the letter was brilliantly constructed, it wasn’t something I took any time to sit and think about; it was an inspired letter that was ‘auto-written’, meaning I didn’t have to think about what I was writing, just like my inspired poems ‘Jesus Never Left You’, “Call Me By My Name!” (Jehovah), and “Look to Me!” (God’s reply to Suzanne’s letter which also features in Year One):

Reading the letter, you might wonder why God would inspire such questions.  The truth is, God was simply responding to the questions many of us have been asking in our heads but haven’t verbalized, because we’ve been told ‘not to question the infallible Word of God’ – as if God no longer speaks.

It was only after asking these questions that I began to receive the answers, and learnt ‘the Truth’, which I’m now sharing with you through this Self-help novel.  In fact, I had not intention of ever sharing the letter publicly, but when I started writing Year One, I was led to include the letter.  My response was “Are You sure?”.  I felt as if I was putting my life on the line by sharing it in the book, but surprisingly, many people have said they’ve asked the same questions!

Leaving a Legacy & December Events!

Last week was an event-full week!

On Saturday I attended the Legacy Gala where we championed people within our community who were making a positive impact and leaving a legacy (maybe I’ll be included next year!)  An old friend of mine, Marlon ‘Kush’ Palmer received an award for his contributions to showcasing Black films over the last 20 years (I designed his very first logo!).

marlon

I was interviewed at the Gala by ‘No Ordinary Woman’ Chat Show about my novel ‘Journey of a Sister’ – it was a coincidence that I’d only met the presenter Caz-Maz a few days earlier at the Mayor of Southwark’s Office! (That’s another story!)

legacy-interview

And last Thursday, I attended the Premier Screening of ‘Birth of a Nation’.  It wasn’t what I expected, as most of the film simply promoted white supremacy, and blatantly showed how the bible was used to subdue my ancestors and turn them docile.  I thought I was going to see an empowering film about revolution, but for me, ‘The Birth of a Nation’ was really about the birth of white supremacy through the enslavement of my ancestors.  As the descendant of an enslaved African, in my opinion, this film did nothing to empower me, and did nothing to honour my ancestors.

The bright side was, I had the opportunity to perform my poem “Who Am I?” before the film started.  It was befitting for me to perform this particular poem, because when I was in Ghana in November 2014, I performed this same poem in the dungeons where my ancestors were held in squalid conditions before being torn from their Motherland and shipped from Cape Coast (one of them was called ‘The Good Ship Jesus’).  I performed it right on the spot where my ancestors were held captive. It was also the 8th anniversary of my grandmothers passing:

It took me a year to write about my experiences in Ghana, but the last two chapters of my revised Self-help novel now titled ‘Journey of a Sister’ are based upon my experiences there. Get your paperback here (ships worldwide).

Anyway, the following day (Friday), I went to see the play ‘So You Think I’m Crazy?’ at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham, North London.  Brilliant acting, which again portrayed the many ways my people are under psychological attack – this time through the Mental Health system.  Here’s a clip:

Religion, mainstream media, the food we eat, the music we listen to, and the (mis) education system, are some of the ways we battle psychological warfare.

Along my own Self-healing journey, I studied how the mind works in order to heal myself from depression and self-sabotage.  I learnt that our childhood programming determines how we think and act as adults.  As someone who was indoctrinated into a religion from a very young age, it took me years to un-indoctrinate myself.  On top of that, I’m still going through the process of re-programming my subconscious mind from the negative words and beatings I received as a child (that’s how deep it goes!)  I now know that the whippings my ancestors received were to break them down mentally in order to control them physically.  My parent’s generation were simply enacting their genetic coding of beating their children mercilessly, being emotionally detached from them, speaking negatively to them (e.g. “You are worthless/good for nothing/ugly…”), and taking them to church to be indoctrinated to be humble servants.  I am grateful for my upbringing, because that’s what has led me to the path I’m on today; to help my people ‘break free from mental slavery’.

Religion is a Mind Control tool.  When coupled with the slave mentality, it leaves our minds weak and susceptible to any suggestion made to them.  I seek to work with those who are raising the next generation, because as Frederick Douglas said, “It’s easier to raise strong children than to mend broken adults”. If you are committed to the process of healing, read my Self-help books!

After watching the film ‘Sankofa’ in 2010, I cried out to my ancestors and asked them what I could do to help my people heal.  The following morning, I played the guitar track and recorded ‘We Belong Together’ in my home studio (I recorded it first, then wrote it after – it was channeled!):

Since then I’ve also written ‘Journey of a Sister’ and ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’ (which has contributions from over 30 brothers).  Both books look at how our PAST has affected the way we relate to each other TODAY. They will help you begin the process of Self-healing, and help you build Self Love, Love for your race, Self-dignity and Pride in who you are.

These are the legacies I am leaving for my commUNITY, read them!  You can download ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger’ FREE when you subscribe, or get both paperbacks signed by me from the Books page for only £14.99! (ships worldwide, Paypal will convert currency).

I revised it to take into consideration some of the comments that were made at previous Book Signing & Discussion Events, such as “Is the ‘White Wedding’ a Black Thing?”  The front cover design was also inspired by something one of the brothers said: ‘the ring is the smallest handcuff ever created by the white man’ (he’s now happily married by the way!).  You can see him making the comment in this short video clip from the Book Launch of the First Edition:

We’re  mainly going to be discussing ‘How to Get the Ring On Your Finger‘ because no-one has yet read the two new chapters I’ve added to my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘ (previously titled ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!).  You can purchase your signed copy on the day for only £9.99, and read it before next month‘s Book Signing & Discussion Event!

Blog Tour Day THREE: No TESTimony without a TEST!

mochalogo_8_6578622613

I’m getting all evangelistic today!

My article ‘No TESTimony without a TEST‘ was written exclusively for Mocha Girls Pit Stop, and was inspired by my poem “Look to Me!” which forms the foundation of the article.  I wrote the poem in 2001, at a time when I was feeling down, probably  depressed.  The poem was God’s Reply to my moaning and complaining.  See, I had such big visions and plans for my life, but at the time, I was a struggling single mother with two young ‘suns’.  I couldn’t see how I was going to get from where I was, to where I wanted to be.  The poem was simply me writing down what God was speaking to me in my spirit, and when I started writing my Self-help novel Journey of a Sister in 2010, I was led to include it in Year One!  It’s also the first track on my award-winning CD ‘Seeds of Love‘, which you’ll get FREE when you order your signed paperback before Tuesday!

Year Two: Who Am I?

‘Sometimes, in order to go forward, we have to go back’.

In Year Two of ‘Journey of a Sister’, the main character Suzanne learns all about her African ancestry, and the his-story of the religion she had been indoctrinated into.  Learning about her rich history before slavery helps her develop positive Self and racial esteem.  She begins to undo the indoctrination she had received around sex and money.  Despite her current circumstances, Suzanne is happily moving towards her goals.  She inspires Charles to awaken his inner child and start his art again!

Yr2BookCover

Year Two is based on my own ‘her story’ of discovering that I was the descendant of an enslaved African, and that I had been totally disconnected from my roots.  I had been brought up in a Christian household with the belief that the only way for me to have a relationship with my Creator was through a white Jesus.  I had no culture, no Mother Tongue, no wealth from the resources of my Motherland, and no inheritance.  I didn’t even have my original African name.  Everything my ancestors owned had been stripped from them, and as a result, I was displaced, impoverished, lost and confused.  Raised in a country whose economy had been built on the backs of my ancestors, yet not benefiting financially myself; the only people benefiting were the descendants of enslavers who had left an inheritance to their children. Yet I also discovered that I had a rich history before slavery!  Year Two features two of my poems, here’s an extract with one of them:

Extract from Year Two: Who Am I?

Suzanne realized that she didn’t really have a sense of identity; was she African, Jamaican or British?  Just because she was born in England didn’t make her English; she had never felt ‘at home’ there, and could never get used to the cold weather. Even if she wanted to claim Africa as her roots, which part was she from?  It was such a large Continent, and she had learned that Africans were captured from all parts and taken to the West Coast of Ghana before being carried away on the slave ships.  How was she going to find where she originated from?

Up to this point, her strongest identity claim was being ‘the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus’.  She had no righteousness of her own – according to the bible, even her own righteousness was like ‘filthy rags’.

She had no name with which to trace her roots; she had inherited a slave master’s name.  Africans put a great deal of effort into naming their children, even holding elaborate Naming Ceremonies, as they knew the spiritual effect it would have on the child in shaping the child’s destiny. Europeans knew the devastating effect stripping them of their name and replacing it with their own name would have on them.

She pledged that when she found out where she originated from, she would change her surname to a name from that place, in honour of her ancestors.

Greatly impacted by everything she was learning, Suzanne was moved to write a poem:

Who am I?

I am a remnant of my ancestors,

Torn from my Motherland

By the rape of slave traders.

 

Who am I?

I am a watered-down version of an African Queen;

My blood is diluted, so mixed, that it’s now in-between!

My skin is no longer its original color;

Rich, dark, like black gold;

The colour of…tar.

 

Yet still,

I have Royal Blood flowing through my veins,

For my ancestors were kings, queens, rulers,

Inventors, scientists, leaders…

(Track 5 on the ‘Seeds of Love’ CD)

She made a commitment that day to use her gift of writing poetry to help free her people from mental slavery.

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).

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:

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).

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