Awareness...Infinite Beings



Getting what you want is not hard, because remember, it’s how you think about your world.
I believe what makes us think it’s hard to achieve our desires is “time.” 
We are processing time and how long it’s taking for our manifestations to come through.
 We go through this so-called tough time, or trouble period. 
And in that “time frame” negative thoughts come in, and we begin to think; This will never end. 
OR I’ll never get what I want because this is always happening to me.

However, if we already know we have what are heart desires, our mood changes, we begin to feel calmer, wiser and we just accept; 
I have to experience “this” to get to “that.”
Then we become more appreciative of every moment, of every experience WE have created.

Change the way you think, and you will change your world.

Move Like A Turtle... with purpose


Idleness is not a waste of time, when time is irrelevant, preparation
 for truth* is what it is.

Idleness definition is to do nothing, to be stagnant, a lack of development…

               Preparation for truth… is knowing what it ** looks like when it arrives.

You have no control over how it will come, that’s for the Universe to decide.

Your job is to know you have it and thank source for providing.




*What is your it??

**What is your truth??

We Are Biological Machines...Infinite Being



The other day when I updated my computer's antivirus software, the new software notified me that there was another antivirus scan already downloaded and it may interfere with the new program; it even prompted me on how to remove it

So I did and the new software downloaded successfully.

While it was downloading I decide to purchase some new vitamins capsules called Chaga Mushrooms, and to do some more research on these mushrooms, and I came across an article that stated that Chaga Mushrooms may have an adverse reaction to some prescription drugs.
So I thought why is that? 
Why would this natural vitamin cause an adverse reaction?

So what came to me was...

"For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction."

Chaga is like the new software you take its positive solution to heal self; it then enters the body and once there, recognizes that something else is already here. 
And how do you physically recognize the old software? 
By you physically getting sick, and 
how does your body delete it?

You either throw it up or shit it out. Sometimes both…

I've come to believe that we are biological computers, we get viruses and if we do, we then download…
i.e. Eat, drink or inject some sort of antivirus remedy, whether it’s prescribed or holistic, for protection. 

Therefore, it’s important that we are fully aware of what we take into our bodies.

We must always protect our Mind, Body and Soul.

Clear Your Own Path...Infinite Being



Why do you carry the weight of the world on your shoulder?
Do you enjoy the pain? Do you enjoy having that “upset” feeling, when external things don’t go the way you hoped?
Your head and back are hurting for a reason; carrying others emotional baggage is heavy when you combine it with your own.
So let it go! Please understand that you have no control over what happens in the outside world.
But you do have control over your own.
What I have learned on my journey of enlightenment is to say everything is perfect. And take responsibility for my own feelings, and deal with them accordingly.  I like to think of my positive thoughts as a machete clearing the path that is already there. My heart knows whatever I want to manifest already exist. 
And my “mind’s eye” or our third eye, already sees it.

Clear your path, live in joy and know self.

We Are The Fibers of This Planet and She is Perfect


We are infinite beings experiencing a human life.
Steadfast in the ever present now;
However, we created this world, this opportunity for us to experience ourselves, and in this beautiful existence we gave ourselves purpose.
Our purpose is our journey in this world. And you can make it as hard or as easy as you like.
This wonderful world belongs to us and we should be excited that we have been born with such free will, this divine will to create whatever we desire.
Purpose is that driven focus, that vibration...
THAT pull of…
“I have to do this”
That knowing above all else that THIS  is what makes me happy.
We are Happiness, Love, and Gratitude.

Nature is perfect and we are the fibers of this planet; therefore, we are perfect.

Live Your Life...Growing Consciousness


Having Peace and Happiness in one’s life does not mean that there aren't other challenges, and just because one may have to face those other challenges, does not mean you are not happy. 

Live your life... do good, and cause no harm.

If You Think It....It will come...





You cannot control how your manifestation will appear, but you will know when it arrives.
About 2 years ago my oldest said…”I want a cat!”

 About a week later I was in the garage working on a piece and as I was about to close down for the day a kitten, or what I thought was  kitten ran in, the first thing I thought was; she did this. She wished for a cat and here it is.
She was missing a front tooth, blind in one and very thin, so thin in fact we thought she was a kitten. When we took her to the vet the veterinarian informed us that she was over 3 years old and had been spayed. We figured she had to been on the streets for over a month considering how thin she was.
Now she is a healthy typically cat.

Just note that your thoughts are energy and what you think the universe provides.

The Insanity...When All You Have To Do Is Walk



I don’t understand why some people that chose to lose weight, will find the most difficult exercise to do to lose it. I.E. Insanity  workouts, PX 90 and more...
Most the time these folks need to lose a lot of weight. And they need to start off with something simple like walking. Especially, if you have 50lbs or more to lose, those intense workout videos will burn you out FAST!
All down my Facebook and twitter timeline, I witnessed ladies bragging about their decision to exercise then boast about the workouts with photos of course. This went on for a strong 2 months. Then the bragging STOPS!
 In my opinion, those exercise videos are meant for the size* of the people who are doing the videos. And let’s keep it real here, most the folks going down your time line, are not anywhere near the size of the people in those videos.
 (Size meaning- athleticism)
However, beginning some sort of exercise program is a wonderful idea, but keep it realistic and simple. 
The easiest exercise one can do is walk. You will lose weight, and feel great.
(I sound like a cheesy commercial)
But seriously, if you can find time to read the crap coming down your timeline, you have time to walk, and if you have more than 50 or more pounds to lose it is the best thing to do and its FREE!
I walk at least three miles a day 6 days a week rain or shine. And I go to the gym an hour a day for the weights and the cycles.
This schedule works for me. I like the idea that even if I don’t get to the gym. I have the outside free and clear to explore.
So get out there and WALK!

~Walking in the Rain~


     I enjoy walking in the rain and as long as it’s not thundering and lightening; walking in the rain feels good. Even though, I have walked in the rain before, today I passed several cars and witness some of the looks that were on their faces, some smiling even got a few waves, and others looked in curiosity. None-the-less it was a good walk.

2 My Health-Round 2~Black Folks Eating Right



It’s been a year ago today, I decided to change what my family eats and blog about it, and we have not looked back. 


Thought out the year ,we searched for local vegan friendly restaurants; we have found that most of these eateries are located in the trendier part of the city, for instance downtown; therefore I would suspect in most American cities you should be able to find a vegan/vegetarian place to eat.


The farmers market is the best place to purchase large amounts of fruits and vegetables. I no longer purchase pre-made juices or sodas.
That money now goes towards fresh fruits and vegetables from the market.
I spend $300-350 a month for fruits and vegetables.



If I was to try and purchase the same amount of fruits that I get from the farmers market and purchase these items from my local grocery store. It would cost more.

For example, navel oranges 64 count $22.00. Grocery store 12-16 oranges $6.59 a bag. 6.59 x 4=26.36 that’s $4.36 difference. 

And with Anjou Pears 100 count 32.00, there is no way to get a hundred pears for under $32.00 at my grocery store, the Pears here are sold by the pound. I also purchase Grapes, Blackberries, Strawberries and so much more.
All in all, I am very pleased and will continue to juice our fruits and vegetables.

Need An Extra Fridge without Electricity? DIY IDEA



I am at the farmers market every week, and know the importance of keeping fresh produce, well fresh. So I came across this Refrigeration idea that I thought was so cool. Really cool. 
It’s called zeer (Arabic) or the Pot-in-pot refrigerator; it is an evaporation cooling refrigeration device which does not use electricity. Take a smaller pot and put it inside of a larger pot. Fill the space in between them with wet sand, and cover the top with a wet cloth. When the water evaporates, it pulls the heat out with it, making the inside cold. It’s a natural, cheap, easy to use and even portable. So, instead of perishable foods spoiling after only three days, they can last up to three weeks using this technique.

Tangy Sweet Tangerine Juicing Recipe ~For Family of 5~ Black Folks Eating Right


I have always enjoyed tangerines, but I have never juiced them until recently and wanted to share a juice recipe that I have been experimenting with.
This recipe will make about a gallon of juice.

12 Golden Delicious Apples
2 Leafs of Kale
1 Raw Beet (with leafs)
1 Pineapple
1 Grapefruit (hence the tangy)
Handful of Fresh Spinach

This juice recipe is delicious and one of my favorites to date. 
The tangerines with the pineapples really makes this juice sweet.
Pineapples are great at masking the kale and beets.


I used a Omega Juicer 8006 Chrome

Sea~of~Green Salad: Black Folks Eating Right~A Plant Based Diet


      Mingz Sea of Green Salad

I love salads, and one of my favorite salads to make, is my “sea of green” mixed salad…
I used to purchase the bag salads until I realized that making my own is so much better. I used a combination of 3 green lettuce (no iceberg), Kale, and fresh spinach, along with carrots. 
I love  Red Wine Vinaigrette (full of high fructose corn syrup) but it is so delicious.

With this beautiful salad and not pictured, I baked a fresh pink salmon seasoned with Old Bay Seasoning and Sweet Onions
..DELISH…





Frozen Fish bake for an hour on 320
Fresh bake for 30-40 mins on 350
topped with sweet onion
and covered with Old Bay Seasoning

Why do retail stores ask for your zip code?



Here is a very interesting article to why some stores will ask for your zip code. I was under the impression that you needed to provide your zip code to finish the transaction, however that’s simply not true… companies sometimes use your zip code to track your spending habits as well as getting your email and home address. Check out this article to get more information.

Corporal Punishment Permission Slip...






I came across this article and was shocked that corporal punishment is still an option in some public schools.
This "permission slip" hails from Alabama..

I 100% agree with the mother on her hand written statement on hitting a child!

"I can not imagine how it would ever be ok to show violence towards anyone. Hitting a child is beyond disgraceful. Anyone who could hit a child should be put in jail."

And I may add; that goes for parents too, there is no reasoning to why you should hit your child!
