This is what chasing VANITY does.
It causes mental senility and physical neglect!
Cause you won’t go to the gym if you can’t get a bubble butt.
You won’t eat the salad if your friend doesn’t eat it too.
Are you gonna REALLY be about Black Girl Magic for 2020?
I believe that the forces of nature will help you now more than ever before.
I also believe that the price to pay for what you want will be the greatest its ever been.
You will have to bleed for it, but it WILL come.
You will have be disciplined for it, but it will come.
You’re gonna be uncomfortable,
maybe even a little afraid: BUT it will come.
Whatever you focus on WILL come!.
But the key is to relax.
Your BREATH determines outcomes.
They make you think it’s luck or pedigree that dictates your fate, but no little dove, it’s your BREATH.
What do you mean Salkis?
The breath holds the key to how you process food,
What are you doing right now?
You are breathing shallow..
Because you are bracing yourself.
Because you dont want to get hurt.
👉🏿You breathe like you are in pain.
And this causes a depletion of oxygenated blood, which inhibits proper nervous system function.
👉🏿You breathe like you are scared.
And this is why you fail at love, at weight loss, at abundance, and creativity..
Watch how babies breathe.
They take full diaphragmatic breaths.
Because they haven’t learned to brace themselves for the “anticipation” of pain..
👉🏿You want to manifest?
It’s not about a vision board or a better business plan if you are creating these while holding your breath in fear.
Breathe through your self doubt.
Breathe through the physical pain.
Breathe through your low self worth.
The year of BEING is upon us.
You will have to stop all the excuses and being ruled by your fears now.. You have to become a woman who lives in the realm of certainty.
And your certainty get’s its nourishment from our daily activities.
You need to be careful what you absorb. This means, what you eat, what you hear, what you see, what you think, who you screw and what you say..
ALL of this plays a role in outcomes that show up as fate in your life.
Never again presume that you can write a vision and not FEEL IT, TALK ABOUT IT, LEARN IT and ACCEPT IT!
Give yourself the breath of life!
Were you not told that the breath made you a “Living Soul”?
Inhale completely, pause, then empty your lungs completely.
20x every day.
Then sit still.
Close your eyes and enjoy tingling as your body experiences
full nourishment for the first time since you were a youngling…
Do your breath ritual before you meditate,
pray or anything requiring your full attention and you will become more confident,
efficient and stronger physically and mentally too.
Then you will MANIFEST.

It’s not what you say, it’s what they think you said.
It’s not what you are, it’s what they think they see.
And moment even a smidgen of vulnerability is displayed,
you are immediately labeled emotionally broken and woman unfit for anything other sexual monopoly.
And if you are going to base the prediction of results on statistics, black men can support their arguments for not fooling with black women on those same reports you are going to for emotional comfort and reassurance.
And nothing you think about yourself will stick unless its backed by HEAT.
What do I mean by heat?
When you are angry, you are hot! Your heart beats fast and your body literally raises in temperature.
And I you manage to get it, you’ll son realize it wasn’t worth the wait to begin with.
I have always made it a point extend an olive branch to other women of all shapes and sizes and colors
so that I wouldn’t be classified as bitter or insecure over other women.
But the conclusion I’ve reached is that it doesn’t matter if you say hello first,
if you give first,
if you offer friendship or understanding first, all people see is COLOR.
As A black woman, that’s all I’ve been all my life: BLACK
My talents, my wisdom or anything else I had of value always took a back seat to how I looked.
Even in the art world, there are private discussions about what “type” of work sells and WHO can sell it,
and I was advised on several occasions not to do the “Black Girl” thing cause it’s not what black people want to see.
Some hard conclusion arose though.
And it wasn’t that black girls don’t sell, its that black girls created by black girls don’t move as fast.
I’ve seen white artists paint black girls, pitch black girls in folk art style on old doors and other eclectic stuff,
some of which can be misconstrued as “Coonery” and BLACK PEOPLE bought their art.
I’ve seen white women do paintings exclusively of black women who decide to keep themselves inconspicuous
and BLACK PEOPLE BUY THEIR WORK too!
And here I am, and actual black woman concerned about the politics of painting dark skin women because
I didn’t want to be misconstrued as a “hater”….
Telling my story and worried about acceptance when everybody else can enjoy
( without scrutiny) what they prefer to paint for whatever reason they choose to paint it.
Everyone else gets to enjoy the novelty of it all, but I need sensible reasons for why I do what I do?
It’s a New Day..
And Im here to tell OUR STORY through the faces of Dark skin women.
I won’t say that I’ll never paint another complexion again because I will,
but the FOCUS now is on Black Girl Magic.

I was one for most of my life. Trying hard to make people laugh and smile and like me.
Masking how I truly felt for fear of experiencing rejection and loneliness.
The more I tried, the more invisible I felt as I never got what I wanted.
Some of us are used for the entertainment of others who never seem to feel an inclination to reciprocate the generosity and care they’ve received.
I came to the conclusion that being kind wasn’t the way to get love. I figured out that being selfless wasn’t the way to want he hearts of others..
What would give me a quality experience when interacting with other souls is to LOVE MYSELF.
Are you doing things for laughs and cheers at the expense of your ideals and self esteem?
Are you afraid to ask for what you need from those whom you give too?
Then you are playing a clown, and it’s time to stop entertaining people at the cost of your identity.
The respect you want to enjoy requires ENERGY.
The love you want to experience requires energy.
What signal are you sending out into the world?
What are you eating to support your cells and organs?
What are you thinking in order to change the way your genes express themselves?
Feeling good about who you are requires new thought patterns and a new environment to support a new thought.
You ever rearrange the furniture in your bedroom and feel like its a brand new room? That the same concept needed to change the results you get in your life. Rearrange your thoughts by manipulating your environment.
The game of life and abundance and wellness is about about changing your perception of your reality.
feel love permeate through your body. When you go out the door, breathe deeply and think positively about yourself.

So what if everything we have seen, heard, read or know is misinformation?
What if we are living in a dream state and our dreams are actually reality..
Well if my dreams were true I’d be able to fly in helicopters, fight off lions with my bare hands and have sex with Angels… haha!
I think they are excess thoughts that become junk because we do nothing with them; we don’t act upon them, so they have to release themselves from our minds to unburden us with thoughts that we cannot produce anything with..
To create your life, the life you want, takes a heavy dose of imagination and creativity.. It requires that you feels things you have never get in your hands, to know things you have not experienced first hand..
It requires a vivid imagination and a high tolerance for pain..
You’ve got to risk it all for what you want. You’ve got to be SO O.K. with putting yourself on the line, with looking like you don’t know what you are doing, with people not supporting you etc…
I know I do.
And it was hard for me to admit that because it seemed like it had an immoral stain on it. Only evil people are powerful, right? But who told us that?
Who told us that a working man who barely gets to see his wife and kids is doing a more noble act than a man who would rather live on the street than be a slave for another man?
It’s all made up..
So now that you know this, and hopefully on a road to accepting it, which fears will you start to let go of? What doubts are you going to scratch off your little list of “Can’t Do’s” and “Never Gonna Happen”
You Can’t Get to Freedom by thinking that Life is Journey***Only poor, undisciplined, insecure people talk that nonsense about a journey!
