Fam you are absolutely amazing, I just wanted to take the time to say gracias, mahalo and thank you for week after week supporting my blog and giving your insights. It’s beautiful and I am so grateful.
So this mental thing….battle of the mind…you are what you think….as a man/woman thinks in their heart, that’s what they become…is crazy. The mind is a powerful domain right? I mean coming into this experience I knew that, but now going through this experience I realize that it is absolutely everything. The word of God in Proverbs says that a strong spirit of a man/woman is better than a fortified city. In other words, someone with a strong spirit or mind is way better than a well-protected city. This week as we go deeper into Hannel and Og it is just messing me up.
Og said that ” you are natures greatest miracle” from scroll iv and that you are unique and as you practice you win. At least that is my take on the majority of the scroll so here is the deal. You are natures greatest miracle I am natures greatest miracle. There will never be another you on this planet for hundreds of years. I told you all in earlier posts that I realized that the land of ER(prettier, smarter, sexier, etc) is not going to work for me, so I live in Unique City and that place rocks. In Unique City I am my best self because I am my only self. To actively trying to change yourself into someone else you were not born to be is to be second best. Who wants to be second best? Not me!
Og said as you practice you win, that makes so much sense to me. I’ll tell you why. Once you know things from your core, your heart and it flows out of you; no one and I mean no one can take that from you. Not the governor of your state or province, not your lover and not your competition at your place of work or industry. No one.
Side note: this is why I prefer a man that has the ability to create wealth from his wisdom and not someone who just happened to get wealthy based on winning the lottery, inheritance etc. Because life like business has its cycles and eventually those curve balls, avalanches and explosions of destruction come. It’s not a matter if, it is a matter of when. If that results in “losing it all” the man of wisdom will simply build again and create his wealth. Whereas the guy that only got his wealth by winning and not earning it will wallow in their sorrow. #AintNobodyGotTimeForThat
So we win because no one can take that knowledge from us because it is who we are. The mason, the dancer, the teacher, the business person, the nail tech, the doctor etc you can not take those skills(from a mental standpoint) away from them because through practice that is who they are. Then Hannel messed me up. This week ya’ll I am telling you.
Hannel had the nerve, the audacity, the unmitigated gall to tell me
“Intuition arrives at conclusions without the aid of experience or memory. Intuition often solves problems that are beyond the grasp of the reasoning power. Intuition often comes with a suddenness that is startling; it reveals the truth for which we are searching, so directly that it seems to come from a higher power. Intuition can be cultivated and developed; in order to do this it must be recognized and appreciated; if the intuitive visitor is given a royal welcome when he comes, he will come again; the more cordial the welcome the more frequent his visits will become, but if he is ignored or neglected he will make his visits few and far apart. “
That messed me up. I said to myself no wonder a lot of us live in Mistake Nation! We have been ignoring our intuition. Now we can argue that it can lead you wrong sometimes and I get that but what about those WHO NEVER FOLLOW IT. Hannel says if you neglect your intuition that joker is not visiting you very often. That makes sense to me and I’ll tell you why.
You know the voice of your lover, friend, colleague right? Why? You have spent time with them enough to know their voice. So when they tell you to move get out of the way to save you from harm, what do you do? You move right because these people love you. I submit to your thinking that Intuition works the same way. If you respect it and invest time listening to it you know that voice. So in your times of decision, trouble, or judging, you can “hear” what your intuition is saying. Just fabulous Hannel. Go ahead, sir.
That Boy Benny
So this week’s word for me from Benjamin Franklin’s Makeover was COURAGE. The courage to open my mouth, the courage to share my life and insights, the courage to say no, the courage to say yes, the courage to stand against evil and so much more. Well yesterday I had a very uncomfortable conversation with my family member and challenged him to step up. I told my mom about it and she told me,
“You can’t lead a horse to water”.
I said,”Mommy, I am trying to help him free himself from the yoke of the grain mill that has him going in circles. We haven’t gotten to the river yet.”
I don’t know who this girl is, but I have to be honest when I tell you I like her! My name means victorious lion-like protector of man. It’s Latin and French and to a large degree, my father was very lion-like. You did not mess with my dad. My mom is very ferocious like a bear. As a matter of fact, she is the embodied definition of a momma bear. She is sweet as pie UNTIL you mess with her cubs…grown or not. I saw so many acts of courage yesterday and throughout this week. I can not explain how I feel other than waves of gratitude if that makes sense?
Bishop TD Jakes said, ” God said ‘Be fruitful and multiply’ but you cannot be fruitful unless you are seedful.” He said the prophet Elijah had visited a family and found Elisha plowing his parents field. Elisha wasn’t a farmer. Just because you can operate a plow doesn’t make you a farmer. He was living his parent’s dream.” The moment he met Elijah, Elisha put down that plow and followed the prophet into his destiny as the new leader of the prophetic school.
He said, ” notice, when Elisha was exposed to something greater and[, had the intuition to follow it], he had to put down something lesser”. You see there are so many of us with seeds that have not met the right fertilizer to flourish those unseen gifts. Yet when you meet someone that does that gift just pops up.
We have done the same as well. We have put down our old blueprint to embrace our new blueprint and in the presence of the MKE team, we are unearthing new seeds, attributes, talents, and habits. I had no idea I was courageous. I knew I was strong, but not this. I want to thank Mark, The Fabulous Davene, the Guides, The MKE members and everyone else responsible for this project. Gracias, Mahalo, Merci and thank you for your leadership, love, and guidance on this journey.
It is courage week for me so I do challenge you all to do something small that you would never have had the courage to do before in your life. Send that email, give that letter, donate that gift, fix that neighbors car…whatever that means to you. Make it happen, captain.
As always, I look forward from hearing from you.
