    THE HOUSE NEGRO VS. THE FIELD NEGRO - MODERN SLAVES STANDING UP

    in Current Events

     


    Our guest this week:  Ujima people progress party - Obasi & Lutalo


    Quote pg. 7 Blood in my eye


     


    Born to a premature death, a menial, subsistence-wage worker, odd-job man, the cleaner, the caught, the man under hatches, without bail- that's me, the colonial victim. Anyone who can pass the civil service examination today can kill me tomorrow. Anyone who passed the civil service examination yesterday can kill me today with complete immunity. I've lived with repression every moment of my life, a repression so formidable that any movement om my part can only bring relief, the respite of a small victory or the release of death. In every sense of the term, in every sense that's real, I'm a slave to, and of, property

    Creation Energies channeled by Brenda Hoffman

    in Spirituality

    Summary of the March 14, 2015 Creation Energies show - Brenda's 15-minute, channeled show at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman: You're learning there is no Santa Claus, that you can trust very few. This is your phase of destruction before you rebuild. And so it is you're discovering more secrets about your 3D institutions that make your life, your world untrustworthy. Such is so because you'll soon clear away the 3D world rubble to create new structures correct for you and your New Earth community of love and choice.


    You've Jumped in a Rabbit Hole is the title of this week's, channeled Brenda's Blog for www.LifeTapestryCreations.com.


    Overview of the March 20 Creation Energies show: Most of March has been difficult for you've been clearing the debris of the land that is new you. Before this energy burst, you carried a great deal of garbage that clouded your new you vision. This energy burst helped clear most, if not all, of the remaining garbage accepted by you for eons via 3D earth. The result is that you will just know someone or something you could not perceive before. Allowing you to truly start loving yourself and others. Some of you will ask for extra-credit by continuing your clearing for the next few days. Others wish for a respite and will continue when they sense the need. Whatever your decision, you've all moved ahead a tremendous, if not almost impossible, amount to new you the past few days - externally and internally.


    Brenda's Blog and her Creation Energies show contain different channeled information.

    Conversations with Counselor Mandy: Inspired Stories of HOPE! - Gypsy Hundley

    in Psychology

    Mandy Eppley speaks with visual artist Gypsy Hundley about how her creative spirit is reflected in her artwork and is her passionate way of serving in the world.


    Gypsy Hundley has been painting full time for over 10 years. Her work has been displayed in galleries throughout the nation and purchased from thousands of spirits world wide. Starting out as an outsider/folk artist, Gypsy spent years traveling the unknown roads touring art shows and seeking galleries while living out of her van. Her tenacity to evolve and pursue an art career gave her strength to move forward. Her continual changes in her style has gained respect, recognition and admiration.


    When she speaks of her art, it is as if she's telling a story of an ancient love she has danced through life with, hand in hand. "I wouldn't know what I would do if I couldn't create. I am so very blessed and choose to carry those blessings to others through my colors and imagination. Hopefully to heal and brighten other lives."

    Get out of the Zone - Comfort Zone that is!

    in Lifestyle

    Join me for Segment 4 of my 12-segment Series of the Bigger Game Board.


    Each show I explore the different squares on the board of this Life-Changing 2-Day Experiental Workshop.


    It's based on Rick Tamlyn's program, The Bigger Game, which I'll be delivering on April 25th. &  26th. in Los Angeles, and June 27th. & 28th. in NYC.


    Learn more about this program and Register at  HeartCenteredPrograms.


    Today we'll explore the Comfort Zone square.  Comfort Zones get a bad rap and the truth is they're neither good nor bad.  They have a very distinct purpose.


    However, if you spend too much time in your Comfort Zone - you become stagnant, static and stuck!


    The Bigger Game is designed to get you to Assess your Comfort Zone and see if it's holding you back, giving you a needed respite, or if it's become a hiding-place!


    Join me Monday, March 30th. at 10am and Assess your own Comfort Zone!
