All that you've asked for is already here. Let your soul guide you through the debris so you can finally see beyond and experience what you have cocreated for yourself.
You can trust your soul, it knows the way. Through the confusion, through the emotion, through the pain, through the play, through the laughter, through the growth and emerging of you; you are being guided.
You Only Have To Look
The Gods never left us.
Ra is the prickle in the skin of the reveller on a sun-kissed day, warming them inside and out.
Set is the roaring in the heart of every rioter, whose eyes are opened by the unrelenting fire He burns in their belly.
Thoth is the yearning for knowledge that drives the academic to follow their dreams, pushing them to greater heights.
Sobek is the promise of self-confidence, beckoning the shy ones from their shells, His hand guiding them to being their best selves.
Nut is the unspoken connection between lovers as they sit beneath star-spangled sky, Her embrace lulling them closer.
Sekhmet is the guttural roar in the throat of the blood-soaked warrior who defends what is rightfully theirs, fearsome and strong.
Geb is the whistle in the wind that rustles the hair of the gardener who plows His land and enjoys the spoils of His soil.
Hathor is the maternal love between newborn and parent, Her lips the gentle kisses full of tearful joy that make life so precious.
Ma'at is the courage that spurs the journalist to give justice to those who are otherwise denied, and to expose isfet without fear when they see it.
Anubis is the urge to protect those who are dearest, and to guide them to a life of grace and blessings.
They say the Gods are gone, forgotten, and a world away.
But they are here; you only have to look for them.

Man, what a powerful message at church this morning.
Minister Jehlani shared a story about a superstar highschool basketball player who was kicked off the team and went into a depression because that was all the knew. She defined herself with her skills. Not with who she was.
Man. Can I relate 110%. Growing up, all I knew was sports. My dad would always teach us about hard work and work ethic and how we would never be handed anything. We would always have to work twice as hard than our peers.
He also said that the only way I could go to college was if I earned a scholarship. So that meant putting in more work and practice than my peers to make sure I earned that scholarship & I am proud and grateful that I was able to make that happen.
But that was all I knew. “Janelle the trackstar”. When I would run into trouble with my coaches, teammates, professors.. I didn’t know how to act. I didn’t know how to take criticism. So I was known as “Janelle always has an attitude”.
When I decided not to run track my senior year of college, I was lost. My skill was broken. Sports was all I had known. Thats the last thing my dad & I had talked about so I didn’t know what was next. I never have thought of what my life would look like after sports.
That’s when my professor suggested I move to Las Vegas. Re write my story. He said, “Janelle you are so passionate about sports, just because you aren’t competing anymore doesn’t mean that you can’t coach them.” Share your experiences so they don’t have to go through what you did. He was so right.
My four years in college was some of the worst years of my life. From losing my dad, having a new coach every single year, from getting roofied at the bar, to getting in fights, to always having an attitude, to questioning my life... yet, here I am still standing. I have been through so many obstacles to get to where I am today, and I am so thankful that God has truly changed my life. I don’t regret what happened in my past. I’m glad it happened, or else I would’t be where I am today.But I’m so glad I’m not who I used to be.🙏
