Happiness Must be Earned…


How can you possible earn something that you already have?

It is without reasonable and unreasonable doubt that all the emotions we need or generate are already within us. So, how and why should happiness be earned? Besides, happiness is related to happening. It is indicative that for happiness to manifest, something must first happen. But is that the truth? Aren’t there people who are happy regardless of what is, or is not happening? How then do we earn happiness?

In her book, “The Game of Life and How to Play it,” Florence Shinn, wrote;

In that wonderful moving picture, “The Thief of Bagdad,” we were told in letters of light that happiness must be earned.

It is earned through perfect control of the emotional nature. There can be no happiness where there is fear, apprehension or dread. With perfect faith in God comes a feeling of security and happiness. When man know that there is an invincible power that protects him and al that he loves, and brings to him every righteous desire of the heart, he relaxes all nervous tension and is happy and satisfied. He is undisturbed by adverse appearances, knowing that Infinite Intelligence is protecting his interests and utilizing every situation tp bring his good to pass.

Uneasy lies the head that wears a frown.”……

That being said, it also worth considering the idea that sadness is also earned. When we forget who we truly are in our true nature, that loss of memory earns us not just sadness, but also all the madness you can imagine in the world.

In my book, Command: 21 Days of Affirmative Prayer and Counseling, you will not only release all self-inflicted emotional, mental and soul-based pain, you will also re-learn who you are in God, and who God is in you. And this is life changing information that will earn you all the happiness you only dream about; especially if you do the work suggested in the book.

There is More Than Enough


“We live in an infinite universe that provides infinite resources we can never exhaust in a single lifetime.” ~ Dr. Jacent Mpalyenkana

The world has somehow convinced us, or rather, we have believed the lie that we don’t have enough. And that we have to struggle, work super hard, kill each other, betray and backstab each other, because if we don’t, we won’t have enough to survive. But oh, what a costly lie!

Before I was forced into taking on this spiritual path, for many years, I thought I was separate from the divine plan of God. I worried everyday about how I was going to make it in life. I studied hard, worked hard at the different jobs I was employed at, and almost killed myself trying to become super-wealthy and super-fast. But I was saved by the constant and consistent failure, itself. I hit rock bottom. Because I came to realize that I really do not have control. I am being done. I am part of a divine plan that provides everything, and it provides everything for everyone on this planet. Everything we need, is here. God is not a fool to create, and leave us suffering and living scarcity-infused lives. It struck me that God, the supreme being is abundant, beyond infinite. “He” created this world with everything we need to live abundant, happy lives. We dwell in the midst of prosperity, wealth, and opportunities that we can never exhaust. What separates us from this goodness is our limited self-belief. We believe to be our identities and just our bodies, We don’t know who we are. We think we are separate from everything. We think we are on our own. But we forget that there is not a we, without God, the supreme. We ignore the fact that our very heartbeats are provided by God. We are, because God is. And when we remember and believe this with our hearts, the shadows of fear, doubt and separation dissolve. 

Believe this and be free. Trust that there is more than enough for you to enjoy, because of your very nature.

And remember, because of our free will, the universe, God, is to us, what we are to Him. When we open our hearts entirely to this magic, we refer to as God, life becomes fulfilled.

I am Quitting my Job: Weekly iV of Inspiration


It is time to quit

Why would I quit my job? You might wonder. Now, the job I am quitting immediately is judging people. It has cost me so much more than what I have put in. And I am sure you can relate. 

Let me explain

Judging, begins by observing the subject, relating to it by drawing information from your subconscious mind that recognizes the subject. Next, you have to perceive, define and then conclude on the subject. And the conclusion is what we normally refer to as judging.

What a waste of mental and emotional resources to come up with a judgement about someone! Although the process is normally done in a matter of seconds or minutes, it is still a hell of a long process. And most importantly, you can never be certain about the content of a book by just looking at its cover.

When we judge other people or make conclusions about their behavior, we consider the behavior as the only subject to perceive. However, behavior is a projection of a lot more complex information in the person than the behavior itself, Behavior is just an output. There is more to it, than it is. There is more to the person than their behavior. And there is more about that person than who they think they are. That is why I have come to a conclusion that judging others is delusional especially because you are making conclusions based on very limited information about the subject.

So, what is the option to judging? 

Well, people will reveal what is inside their minds through their behavior. However, let’s consider a few other details before we accept this suggestion as the truth.

Now, let’s imagine you go to the market to buy bananas. You will only buy the bananas that you like, right? You won’t go around the banana stall judging each of the banana batches. You might look around, pick up a few batches until you find the one you like. But your evaluations will not stick in your mind. You won’t drive home thinking about how horrible the other banana batches were. For the most part, you won’t even think about the bananas you bought. Likewise, you can relate to someone, and if their behavior triggers a negative emotion, memory or feeling within you, observe how you got to that mental/emotional state. Is this person’s behavior repetitive? Are you just having a bad day and this person just happened to be in your presence at the wrong time? As a side note, remember when someone insults you, it is just a projection of their misery. And if you get insulted, it is a projection of your insecurities.

When someone insults you, it is just a projection of their misery. And if you get insulted, it is a projection of your insecurities.” ~ Dr Jacinta Mpalyenkana-Murray

Whatever your reasons are, avoid jumping to conclusions about the person. Perceive and conclude on the behavior, and then act accordingly, but not on the person. Trust me, that will save you a lot of emotional turmoil. Remember it is easier to deal with actions than with people. If you just judge their behavior as action, all you have to do is examine how it made you feel, release the feelings and let it remain in the past where it belongs. Move on.

That’s the job I am quitting. I am done working as a self-employed, underpaid and quack judge, lol. I am not good at it. It is so tiring to judge people based on their behavior. People are more than their behavior. People are always changing. My judgements are neither the entire truth, nor current. Besides, it is just too much emotional work. I have decided to focus on my business, which is me, how I feel and my mindset. 

What about you? Please share your thoughts.

You Don’t Need Anyone’s Permission to Own Your Crown.


I have been following the Miss Universe, 2021 contest. And I saw many beautiful girls, whose beauty numbed my perception. These ladies are gorgeous, but above all, they projected gracefulness, confidence and inner strength. Watching them took me back to many years ago, when I competed for the Miss Uganda crown. And you guessed right, I didn’t win. But that experience equipped me with personal lessons than no other experience has awarded me. I learned that you don’t really compete with the other ladies in the contest, you compete with your inner demons, such as fear and self-doubt. Once you transcend these, there is nothing you can not do to identify what you need to change or upgrade about your identity, mind, body and soul, and then express yourself the best way you can.

As I watched the Miss Universe, 2021, contest, I thought, “What if we lived as if we were competing in a Miss Universe contest.?” How would we behave? What mindsets would we strive to have? How would we speak to ourselves?

I am sure we would exercise daily, stretch or do yoga regularly, eat healthy nutritious foods, take care of our skins, and hair. Dress to impress ourselves, imagine the best for ourselves, religiously strive at letting go of our inner demons, learn to love ourselves unconditionally, research on important global problems and think about solutions, think about how to give back to our communities, and plan on how we would make a difference in the world. I would also throw in daily meditation, to calm our minds and tap into our infinite selves.

The point is, we don’t have to wait to compete in a Miss Universe contest. We can begin today, this very moment and take care of our bodies, minds and souls. We can let go of our inner demons, right now. We can start loving ourselves unconditionally, right now. We can be confident of ourselves right now, by letting go of negative memories and beliefs. We can embark on a life long journey of feeling and looking good, thinking about what is good, being grateful for what we have, and visualizing the best for our lives. And although we might be busy with work or family, we can start considering ourselves as the most important assets in our lives. We can take time to focus on ourselves. Then, we can put ourselves first, so that we can be the best for everything and everyone else.

And guess what? There is nothing we are waiting for. We can own our crowns today!

Please share your thoughts on the new actions you are taking or plan to take, to be your own Miss Universe. Please join me in owning our own crowns.

As a side note, in my book, Command, you will get to release and let go of all deep core subconscious negative beliefs that block you from living life on your terms. You will release everything that shadows your light.

6 Ways to Deal With Mental Health Stigma


Don’t waste your time focusing on people who underestimate you. Focus on how you can up-estimate yourself.” ~ Dr. Jacent M M-Murray

Have you ever experienced some kind of emotional trauma or stress that manifested into a physical misalignment? Let us imagine you had brain surgery which damaged your sight or hearing functions. Or you lost a loved one, which traumatized you.

Could it be that you went through a divorce or a childhood experience that left you feeling completely disoriented and/or dissatisfied with life. Imagine people close to you or those you meet, implicate you as mentally retarded because of your emotional disabilities. This is an example of mental health stigma. Mental health stigma happens when someone discriminates, or treats you in a condensing manner just because you are either stressed, going through some hardcore challenges or is traumatized in some way.

How do you deal with them? How do you move forward without letting their actions affect you?

Here are a few suggestions that will help.

  1. Do not react to people’s negative comments about your weaknesses especially if they are derogative. Observe and ignore. Don’t even respond to their bull shit. Remember that you are in charge of your inner world. You are in charge of how you feel. Do not give them your power of influence–meaning that be the only one who determines what influences you.
  2. Don’t try to understand why someone treated you poorly. You can never understand why mean people do what they do. It is actually better if you don’t question because you might end up thinking like them. For this particular reason, the less you know about the root causes of people’s negative behavior, the better.
  3. Immediately walk away from people who treat you in condensing ways. If you can alert the authorities about their discriminative behavior, do. If not, end the relationship immediately and go about your business. Protect your sanity.
  4. Focus on your healing journey and mental health. Don’t allow outside negativity to influence you. Block it off by religiously focusing on how you want to feel.
  5. Tame your attention. Watch how you distribute your attention. Don’t let the mind sway you into negative thinking. Bring your attention back to your awesome self. Dwell on what you have. Be grateful for your life, your heart beat. Know that with life, change is prominent. Everything changes, and this too will come to an end.
  6. Remember who you truly are. Know that you are not your body, identity, history or experiences. Know that you are a child of God. Know that since God is infinite, you are not excluded from his presence. He is in you, and you are in him. There is no separation. Dwell on this truth with all your heart. And let the love of God heal and protect you.

I hope this helps. I know this is what I do daily to keep doing what I do.

I’m sending you abundant love from my heart to yours.

Love and light

The Teacher Called, Time


What time is it wherever you are?

You don’t need to answer that question, it is just my way of soliciting your attention.

Now that I have your attention, I just wanna share something about me. Tomorrow is my birthday. And I won’t share my age because I wanna save you from information about stuff that won’t benefit you in any way. Also, I have managed to convince myself that age is just a number. And although this doesn’t stop the changes in my body from happening, over the years, I have learned that how I feel is my choice.

What is Time?

Well, most believe time is the measure of the earth’s distance and space around the sun. And others are convinced that time is a man made illusion. I won’t take sides because I am not an expert in time, but I will concur with the precept that man might have invented time. Right now in Los Angeles, California, it is about 4.04p.m as I write this article. In New York, the time is 3 hours ahead. Somewhere in the world, it is 12 hours earlier or later than 4.04p.m. If man isn’t responsible for creating these differences in time, then who is?

Therefore, I have concluded that all time really is, is change. Time represents the constant change in the universe and everything in it. And since everything is always changing, then change is the only norm. Therefore, the first lesson that time teaches us is that it is the only norm.

Time is a projection of change. ~ Dr. Jacinta Mpalyenkana-Murray

Although intangible, time consumes everything, or rather, everything is consumed in it. Time leaves no stone unturned. Time teaches us not to take things for granted. Time consoles us by reminding us that nothing lasts for ever; and that everything that comes must go. In, and with time, there are opportunities to plan, execute set goals, look back to re-evaluate, hope for better experiences, and heal old wounds…physically and emotionally. Time reveals secrets.

Time is a grand revealer. ~ Dr. Jacinta Mpalyenkana

Time also shows us that when we waste our attention by focusing on our negative past experiences, the flow of life, won’t stop to wait for us. If we spend our time indulging in negative encounters, or relating with people who trigger feelings of hatred or sadness in us, time won’t rewind itself back to an earlier slot, in order to gain us more of itself so that we can use it wisely. Time waits for no one. And the truth about time is that you can waste it. Rather you waste your attention on things that don’t progress you. Time can’t be wasted because it is not a thing.

Time propels us to keep moving forward, and progressing. Time is the best revenge, because situations and people change in, and because of it. If there were no time, there would be no change, Everything would be static and dormant. Therefore, I have concluded that time is a tool that supports our expressions in life. Time is an intelligent teacher, who especially shows us that we are supreme to it. We can not be consumed by it. We are in charge. And we can use it as we please. Yes, our bodies can be consumed by time, but we are the never changing reality that observes it. And when we get still and let time and everything moving in it play without our engagement, God is revealed.

What has time revealed to you? How do you use your time?

It Will Never be Okay…….


“It will never be okay; because it always is as soon as you perceive it that way.” ~ Dr. Jacent Mpalyenkana-Murray

When we go through experiences we perceive as challenges, we always hope that they turn out to be okay, sooner than later. However, because perception is projection, we perceive things as we are and not as they are. This brought me to the conclusion that everything is always okay when we perceive it as okay. However, how do we project situations as okay when we are projecting from an inner world filled with negativity?

Let me use the scenario of an image in a mirror. If you want the image in the mirror to change, you don’t break the mirror: you change the image. Equally, if you want your experiences to change, cleanse your subconscious mind, which is the storage of your projections, and then instill new positive prompters or programs based upon which you will perceive the world.

How do you cleanse your subconscious mind you may ask?

Well, I have a power-filled resource for you. In my newest book, Command: 21 Days of Counseling and Affirmative Prayers to Cleanse Your Subconscious Mind and Command Your Life back to Divine Order, you will get to do a thorough cleanse of your subconscious mind and then instill new positive and powerful prompters upon which the projections of your experiences will be based.

Remember, change is movement; change is action. If you want anything to change, move…. act.

Video 1 – Annual Self-Renewal Series |Using Gratitude to Amplify Your Vibration |tapthegood.com


“Don’t wait for others to see your value. See it yourself.” Says my later maternal grandmother.

Life has taught me that we shouldn’t wait for others to appreciate us for who we are or what we do for them. We should appreciate ourselves. We should take time to be grateful for what we’ve done for ourselves and others. By doing this, we are also being grateful for what God does within us, and through us. The consequences are that we start attracting more experiences to be grateful for.

This session will help you shift your awareness to whatever good you’ve done for yourself and others.
