Something Good Can Come From This

Greetings,

I ran into my friend Sarah a few weeks ago….

She owns a popular, Caribbean-inspired restaurant in Oakland called Miss Ollie’s. Great food — I love her fried chicken.

Anyways, she was in good spirits when I saw her. To be honest, I was surprised because I had been a bit worried about her. As you know, the restaurant industry, like nearly every industry, has been dealt a huge blow by the corona virus.

Sarah flashed a huge smile when she saw me and served up some take-out food I could share with my wife. Many of her colleagues in the restaurant business are freaking out, she confessed. But she’s not.

“Something good will come from this,” she said. Those were her first words to me.

…Her smile and energy lifted my Spirit and inspired me to look at the pandemic with spiritual eyes. Somehow it made me think about our ancestors and what wisdom they would offer us at this time.

Even though it’s tough, Sarah says the pandemic is forcing us to change for the better — change our habits, change our diets, and hopefully change our mentality – our ways of thinking and living on the earth.

For too long we’ve been obsessed with wanting “more, more, more, and bigger, bigger bigger.” Now the earth has a chance to breathe,” Sarah said. “Sure, we will lose some people,” she added, “but we have to get ready for the next dimension.”

My friend, Nicole, said something similar.

Nicole is a teacher in NY and hails from the island of Jamaica. “We’ve done so much damage to the earth,” she told me on Whatsapp. “The earth is just resetting itself. I’ve been looking at pictures of Venice — the water is clear, the fish are back, the dolphins are swimming,” said Nicole. “In India, they can see the Himalayas because the fog is gone. In Los Angeles, you can see the skyline.”

On the inside, Nicole has been experiencing deep transformation. “I’m living on a higher frequency,” she said. “I realize I’m not alone and God and the ancestors are with me. I get up every morning grateful to be alive. I used to worry about money but I don’t worry about that stuff anymore”

And she’s not as anxious as she used to be. “I live for the moment. I live for the day. I used to feel like a rat on a wheel. I used to be afraid to sit quietly because I was scared of what to listen for and what would come. The TV would have to be on all the time, even though I’m not watching it — music would have to be playing.”

Now Nicole listens for spiritual messages without judging what comes. She’s allowing herself to be led by Spirit step by step, she says.

What about you, ?

Do you think something good will come from this crisis? If so, I would love to hear your perspective.

And if you’ve lost a job or a loved one, please know I’m holding you in prayer. My good friend, Joel Mcphee says the crisis is forcing us to realize “we all need each other, and we’re deeply connected — it demonstrates the power of nature and the power of our Creator,” he said.

I am sending you and your loved ones good energy during this uncertain time, .

Keep the faith…

Respond to this blog, and I’ll write you back as soon as time permits.

With you in Spirit.

Love Always

Stay Positive

Just wanted to say a quick hello…

Challenging times for all of us. Who knew that a virus could turn our lives upside down in a short period of time?

…I didn’t. Very few people saw this coming.

My youngest son and daughter have both been laid off. My eldest son, a businessman, is at home with his kids.

How has the corona pandemic impacted you and your family so far? Feel free to write and I will respond asap.

Please know that I’m sending you good energy. Here’s what I’ve been telling my children and some of my clients.

1. Maintain a Daily Spiritual Practice: Doesn’t have to be long or complicated, but it’s crucial you maintain one. I’ve been meditating daily. Maintain a practice that resonates with you.

2. Keep Your Body Moving: If you can’t go outside, or prefer not to go outside, do some kind of daily exercise indoors. My wife, Stephanie, has been keeping up daily yoga classes with her teacher via Zoom.

3. Learn Something New:. My son, Diallo, started learning how to trade and earn money in the largest financial market in the world — it’s called forex. I’ve been teaching him what I know, and now he’s trading independently after just one week. (By the way, I mentor people who want to learn how to trade. If you’re interested or want more information about trading, hit me up.)

4. Use This Time Wisely: What can you do NOW to position yourself to be stronger once this crisis is over? What does your future self need from your present self in order to function at the highest level?

5. Check On Loved Ones Often: You’re loved ones might not admit to being depressed or scared, but that doesn’t mean they’re not struggling. We’re all struggling in some way as we try to come to grips with this crazy new life we have. A phone call, or a text, or an email can go a long way.

6. Stay Positive: Try not to take what’s happening to you personally. We’re all in this together. We will get through this together. Envision what you want your life to look like 90 days from now? How does that feel emotionally, spiritually, financially, creatively? What steps can you take today to manifest this life?

Hope this helps.

I’m going for a walk. Hit me up if you feel like it.

It’s still spring and the birds are still singing. Let’s make the best of a tough situation.

Love Always
