Write, Simplify & Flow


Habakkuk 2:2 says,

Write the vision: make it plain so that he may run who reads it. 



Write the Vision


 I can not count the number of people I hear saying they do not like to write when I tell them journaling is the core of my coaching practice. When I hear those words, they often remind me of Habakkuk 2:2. When setting goals, part of the manifestation process is to take what is in your imagination (vision) and put it on paper (write). Any other way is skipping steps that may hinder bringing forth what you want. As a journal therapist, I teach about the importance of writing and its benefits, such as sharpening memory, providing clarity, strengthening emotional wellbeing, boosting your mood, and improve your overall mental health, to name a few. You can google statistics about writing, and studies will show how important it is to do so. I am a dreamer. Dreams are writers. I have experienced missing out on something I foresaw because I failed to write it down. There were times when the strategy is crystal clear for me, but failure to write it while it is fresh caused me to miss critical details. 



Make it Plain


Writing the vision brings what's in your mind to paper so that you can make things clear (plain). What you saw in your mind becomes a goal that you can provide actionable steps to now that you have written it out—making it simple means you can make it make sense and begin to build. What we see may not always be the great things we desire at that time because there is a process first. The process involves getting us to that great thing by removing unnecessary baggage and developing us in areas. Often we want to overlook laying the proper foundation, not realizing this is what keeps us afloat. Building a house on a faulty foundation will cost you so much more in the end. For example, I always share with those who desire to start businesses, heal before going into business, or do the inner work simultaneously. Everything we fail to work out will show up in our companies; there is no way around it. If you experience trauma where money is concerned, you will either get over people to make sure you do not see poverty again; you will brag about everything you have for validation, or you may not feel confident enough to market. It all depends on the end of the spectrum you were reared.



Run with It


According to the etymology of the word run, it means to flow or reach. That made my heart smile reading that. Write it and make it clear by setting the goal and reaching the mark (run). This scripture is the best plan when it comes to accomplishing my goals. Three steps with sub-steps, and there you are, the manifestation. Of course, there will be hang-ups here and there, but that is the beauty of planning; you get to learn during the process to flow without blocks moving forward. If what you saw was something you have never done, appreciate the process because you can perfect it and help someone else—perfecting what concerns you involve those situations that come to stretch us that we try to avoid.

Relax & Recharge

  Have you ever been so tired, but you pushed yourself rather than relaxing? Did you find that your work was mediocre during this time? Usually, when fueled, you give your best, but lately, your body has been signaling the need to unplug, but you ignored all signs. I know you are tired of hearing about self-care practices, but we have to recharge as part of being our best selves wearing the many hats we do. Your cell phone battery dies when it is constantly in use without recharging. So why do we give a device a break and charge it but not our bodies? You are stressing your organs out, so do this for yourself and understand the value in some R&R.    Relaxing and Recharging do not always require going out of town, but if you can, do that too. I love the beach. The water is so relaxing; I can hear clearly and release any blocks that prevent my creativity from flowing. Finding that happy place for yourself is essential. Maybe a bookstore, a quick drive on the freeway listening to your

Family Anatomy, Wide Awake Part II

  So here I am in this lifeless city. How long will I be here this time? I do not want to get comfortable, but I have already been here two days too many. As I walked through looking for shelter, every street reminded me of my childhood. While I grew up devalued if I made the simplest mistake, male family members did the bare minimum and were exalted. If they failed, it was the women in the family's fault. I learned men were not to be held accountable early.  Wounds such as these were so deep I fought not to succumb to them. Even when I stood up for myself, I felt defeated. Men could do no wrong, but my breathing was an issue if I breathed too deeply. On many levels, I understood that growing up in a black household was one of the hardest things to do.  Explaining something to a man meant I castrated him with my mouth. Not being a doormat meant I was not submissive, and walking away told me I was weak. A woman can’t win. When did this start? Was it the misogyny we are governed by t

Identifying When To Invest In A Life Coach

Some life coaches have experienced trauma, healed and overcame it, and are now helping others. They have become who they need for others. Other times, they have mastered an area of their lives and are now helping others who exhibit gifts in that same area. Your need for a coach will depend on where you lack the knowledge or resources to accomplish your goals.   Coaching and consultants are taking the industry by storm. Anything you need, there is someone to help. It is a matter of finding them and making sure they are a good fit. By the end of this article, if you feel you need a coach but not in my area, please email me to help you find who you need.  Life Coaching does for the mind what a personal trainer does for the body. We help with assessing a situation to provide strategies for moving forward. It is a gradual process that allows individuals to dig beneath their thoughts and beliefs to help them understand internal obstacles to their success and wellbeing. Coaches help people
