Who are You to Yourself?


In the Book of Numbers you will read, “In that day there were giants in the land; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers. And we were in their sight as grasshoppers.” This doesn’t mean a time in the past when man had the stature of giants. It means that if today your conditions seem to have attained the appearance of giants (such as unemployment, loneliness and all other things that seem to threaten you) those are the giants that make you feel yourself to be a grasshopper. But you are told in the Verse, you were first, in your own sight a grasshopper and because of this you were to the giants, a grasshopper. In other words, you can only be to others what you are first to yourself. If you believe that your problems are gigantic to you, then that is exactly how you will experience them. If you believe that you are a giant to your problems, they will metaphysically take on the sense of grasshoppers.

There is also more to experience than what you believe yourself to be. Sometimes you could religiously believe to be something, but if there’s any part of you that is in conflict with your belief, you will not project the belief in its virgin sense.

So, during this “worldly” season of love, aka Valentines, if you are searching for love , love yourself abundantly, be a loving nonjudgmental person to yourself, and the same will be reflected in your experiences. Go further into identifying all negative beliefs you have about your identity, and find a way to release them from your subconscious. Take your permission back from whatever negative prompters you gave it to–to manifest as loneliness or loveless-ness. Release the need for love and instead feel the love that you are already are. Love yourself to the extent of being 100% honest with yourself. Identify what you need to let go, who you need to forgive, the guilt you have to release, and everything else that doesn’t represent the presence of God, the presence of good, within you.

If you want to take it a notch further, get this BOOK and command your God-sense to set you free from all bondage.

Do You Really Love Yourself?


“Do you really love yourself?” asked my mother a few months ago. “Of course I do. How can you even ask such a question?” I responded. However, while alone I re-evaluated her question. Did I really truly love myself?

She asked me that question because I was complaining about a racism experience I had gone through. She urged me to focus on what was important…myself. But I didn’t really get it. I felt the need to blame the people who had racially harassed me. I felt entitled to continue pointing out the wrong they had done. And although what they had done wasn’t positive, I was doing more harm to myself. I was so focused on what was wrong, what had happened in the past and how bad these people had been to me. I put my attention on what hadn’t worked and continued to re-live it even when it had happened in the past. I hurt every day. I was literally carrying emotional baggage that was weighing me down. It struck me then that I wasn’t loving myself.

So, what negative experiences/stories are you carrying around? Are you 100% focused on yourself, or you are so busy focusing on your past ? What do you focus on most of the day? What do you think about? Are your thoughts energizing or weakening? When is the last time you did something good for yourself without feeling guilty? And I am not referring to doing something nice to your car or house, impressing your boss or loved ones.

I am referring to more intimate things such as, taking a nap, listening to your favorite music without doing anything else, stretching, doing yoga, eating right, drinking 8 glasses of water daily, meditating, going for a walk, going for a random ride, closing your eyes and doing nothing, forgiving yourself and others, having a long bath, taking time to scrub your body with a beautiful body scrub (whether you are man or woman), reading a self-help book, focusing on finding out who is the one behind those beautiful eyes of yours.

Do you really love yourself? What do you allow into your mind? Who do you allow into your space? What are your inner conversations about yourself? How do you feel about yourself?

Don’t wait for Valentine’s day to love yourself, express this love to others or long to attract love. When you love yourself unconditionally and consistently, you never have to search or expect others to love you. You will know once and for all that you are enough. And most importantly, with unconditional self-love you will project the same in your experiences.

The Power of Authenticity


To begin, what is authenticity?

The Merriam Webster dictionary, has several meanings for the word authenticity. However, I have chosen to use the two below.

~ ” Not false or imitation, real or actual.

~ “True to one’s own personality, spirit, or character.”

Further explained, authenticity implies that one is comfortable in their own skin. They know they are enough, and they believe they have enough for themselves.

One thing I have realized is how the egoistical mind presents fear in our minds, that when given attention to, renders us afraid of ourselves. We start doubting ourselves. We create and cement delusional, unsupported conclusions that we are not good enough; we can’t shine as we are; we need to be like other people; we need to copy what other people are doing, or being, and then behave likewise. However, we forget the power of authenticity. There are many benefits of being authentic, including the following:

  1. Self-confidence: You know that you don’t have to try so hard to be someone else and this gives you the confidence to be you.
  2. Emotional wellness: You are less stressed because you are not trying to keep up with what other people are doing, or being. You are okay as you are, and only seek to improve yourself.
  3. Originality: Being original is attractive and beautiful. It presents a fresh, unique perspective on life. People tend to be more drawn to you.
  4. Creativity: It is easier to be more creative when you are true to yourself.
  5. A chance to attract authentic relationships: Since you attract who you are, there is certainty that you will attract more authentic people, who will also accept you as you are.
  6. Success: If you are in business and doing you, chances are that you will succeed because you won’t be trying to steal other people’s ideas. And even when you get ideas from other business people, you include your own spin because you know that you are an important ingredient in your business strategies. You don’t wanna leave your uniqueness out of anything you offer.

“Being authentic is positioning yourself on a powerful and strong foundation to rule your world.” ~ Dr. Jacent Mpalyenkana-Murray, PHD. MBA

Being authentic means being free of the fear of being yourself. And even when you are afraid, you don’t let the fear stop you. The good news is that we are all created with inner abundant inexhaustible resources designed to support us in all our endeavors. Even when we feel less of who we are, or afraid to be who we authentically are, we are still enough. We have wonderful powers such as, the power of choice, attention, focus, dedication, perseverance, gratitude, influence, belief, love–to mention but a few. All we have to do is let go of whatever is shadowing our inner resources. We have to let go of fear, doubt, negative memories, and the like. We have to use our power of attention on ourselves. We have to believe that we are enough, regardless of what we have experienced.

Now, are you less of this fear? Are you authentic in all your endeavors? If not, what is preventing you?

In my book, Power-Prayers For personal freedom, you will get to command your subconscious mind to release all negative prompters that bind you to your self-inflicted imprisonment.

Do You Trust Your Thoughts, or Yourself?


It is easy to consider all our thoughts as our friends, because we have been with them for so long. However, much as some of these thoughts are either positive guides, creative ideas or progressing memories, there are others that appear in our consciousnesses with intent to bring us down.

The question is, how do you know which thoughts to trust? Some thoughts might be negative but guiding. How would you differentiate between thoughts that are positive and those that are disempowering? Furthermore, do you really need thoughts to survive? How often do you take action that is being guided by thoughts? To simplify, do you ever think about something at the very moment you are doing it? For the most part, you might be doing something and thinking about something else–the past or the future. For example, do you ever drive, if you drive, thinking, “Oh now I am stepping on my breaks. Now I am engaging another gear. Now, I am stopping….etc..” You get the point.

Note that our actions are retrieved from our memories. Our behaviors are retrieved from our subconscious minds. The conscious mind, which is also the doorway to thoughts is used to experience and express whatever is already in the subconscious. So, you realize that your consciousness doesn’t really require you to think, because you already have the programs and memories you need to operate. And if you need to replace these programs, this is when you think of new ways to improve them. This also implies that you don’t need to think to live. But you need to be alive in order to think. You don’t need to think to be. But you need to be in order to think. You don’t need to think to be conscious. But you need to be conscious in order to think. So, you come before your thoughts. Your thoughts can’t exist without you: meaning that you are superior.

Do you know that you even if you felt stuck and didn’t know what to do, you wouldn’t really need to think about it? The more peaceful way is to be thoughtless, empty, which is when your inner guidance will reveal your next course of action. And although this might come in a form of a thought, it will have an energy of purposefulness and inspiration about it.

Going back to the question in the title; Do you trust your thoughts or yourself? My conclusion is, I trust myself first, then my thoughts. What are your views?

How Does Your Name Impact Your Experiences?


“All definitions confine the defined, to themselves.”

This quotation implies that things are confined to what they are defined to be. For instance, money is a term used to define coins and bank notes that reflect on the value they hold. If these coins and bank notes were termed differently, the term would reflect the same projection. This also implies that every definition, term or name, has a vibration or hidden indication behind it.

I have a brother named Lucky. And Lucky, is extremely Lucky. You get the point, right.

The questions are; what is your name? What does it mean? How did they come up with that name? Where did it come from? Do you know how it impacts your life?

Note that every time your name is called, it decrees the vibration and meaning behind it. If your name is say, Diamond, believe it that every time someone calls your name, they affirm that you are a diamond whether they know it or not. Names, just like definitions, are affirmations. Names have hidden powerful indications and reflections of something more mysterious and deeper than the names themselves.

Think about the name, Jesus. Everyone knows that it has power. And this is because of who owned it, how he lived his life and what his life meant to the world.

Therefore, it is important to cleanse your name of all negativity in whatever form it might exist, so that it doesn’t affect your life.

In my book, Power-Prayers For Personal Freedom From all Bondage, among other prayers, you will pray to cleanse and purify your name.

Check out the book and get your copy today. Note that commitment is power. So, commit to free yourself from all bondage. And sometimes, it is as simple as praying—and of course with faith.
