OCCUPY LOS ANGELES

Saturday morning at Pershing Square I met up with thousands of protesters in hopes for CHANGE THROUGH SOLIDARITY. It was an amazing feeling to be surrounded by love, peace and unity. Some ask, "why are people in the streets?" People are marching for human rights. Everyone in this country should have the basic necessities like a place to live, a job and health insurance...the basic needs to raise their family. I am fighting for our educational system. Big corporations are putting more money into celebrity TV programs and fancy sport centers while several schools are closing down and teachers are being laid off.  What about the future of our children?  in addition to a long list of things, I am also fighting for a better environment and spreading the word about self sufficiency. Grow your own food and/or start a community garden.  They are injecting our foods with additives and preservatives to keep us addicted to medications. This movement is about shifting into a consciousness for all humanity.  This movement is about shifting into an awareness that all of us need to work together in order to strengthen the whole. We can no longer live in a fantasy world and think that everyone has the same opportunities only because you have a job and they do not.  Life situations can come up at any given time.  Sometimes those circumstances will determine your health, your job, your sanity. WE MUST HAVE COMPASSION FOR OTHERS. This march is not about hoodlums and uneducated trouble makers in the streets.  It is not about wanting a hand out. I saw thousands of  families and individuals who were living in tents unemployed-with college  degrees. A lot of these same people have been out of work for 3 or more years and can't even get a job at McDonalds. I marched with people of all ages, colors, and backgrounds. This march was occupied with people who had jobs and those who did not.  The 99% are the people who make up America. The 99% work for big corporations and the 99% buy from big corporations. Without the 99% the 1% would not be making billions. There are now protests all over the world. People are asking, "why?"  THE WORLD IS FIGHTING FOR HUMAN RIGHTS.  Do your research and stop watching the news. Start with raw documentation from youtube or looking at pictures like the ones I am sharing from my experience. Most of all READ BOOKS. The media has a way of making you see what they want you to see.  People are asking, "what is the agenda?" The agenda is to stay proactive. The agenda is to stay strong in the name of solidarity. BEING PROACTIVE BRINGS AWARENESS. AWARENESS BRINGS CHANGE. Just imagine if people like Martin Luther King did not stand up for your human rights.

I'm addicted to coping strategies!!

Has anyone ever told you that they used to be "in the world" but all of a sudden out of some circumstance or situation have decided they are too God-like to participate? Well, reality is that we must all live in this world. Call it spirit, God, Jesus, Buddha, consciousness, the universe or nothing at all - it was all created for you, in you. Life and the world we live in is beautiful. Look at all the wonders of nature. The difference is knowing what you are here to do. We can feed our fears with fear or we can conquer our fears by turning inside ourselves for real answers. People confuse superficial actions with the real thing constantly, and so they will forever remain zombies. I believe in God, I believe in science, I believe in evolution. I am open to everything and attached to nothing. This is the mystery of life and I humble myself to the all and everything.

Your DNA and your life journey was specifically chiseled out for you. Stop looking at the next persons imperfec…

Greetings,
I am floating, flying, sailing into darkness, uncertainty and faith. It's been an interesting year so far. I feel myself evolving while unraveling. With the death of my grandmother and my beloved friend just a few months apart, I feel the ancestors tugging at me like never before.
My production company is providing a service in order to fund our film production about the African Diaspora called DiSpell. I would like to thank all of you who have donated at our fundraisers. We continue to stay passionate about traveling along the Caribbean coast and archiving stories. The goal is to fly to Afro Caribbean Costa Rica and travel by land back to the United States maintaining and documenting stories of our ancestors. We are the historians that must keep our own stories alive. It is important to instill strength, courage and holistic health practices in our POC communities. I am a holistic health advocate and I want to remind you of who you are. As storytellers and multimedia …

The Shift

#urbansoulfarmer grew out of a need to learn my culture and tradition through the migration of medicinal plants and spices. Urban Soul Farmer is also a platform that synthesizes wellness, art and nature. The aim is to sow seeds of wisdom about our past, present and future. Study, research, certifications, observation, workshops, community, interviews, and travel are all part of my process to create an experimental multimedia narrative about my ancestors.

I am continuing as Blaqnomadtales to archive stories of healers, counselors, and underground artists of the African Diaspora. Our stories need to be told by us and preserved by us. The time is now. Stay tuned 2017
