However shame comes into our lives, its presence is almost never ignorable. And thankfully, it is also rarely ever a long-term feeling. I can recall a particularly heavy experience I had with Shame. I didn’t know it back then, but that experience was an integral part of my transition into womanhood. It was the first time I recall ever consciously deciding that I needed to “fix” something about myself.
If you join us, you’ll have a chance to share your spiritual goal and explore some options for what activities you want to use (because I’ll be giving you several examples) to help you explore your own spirituality and create some practices to support your spiritual growth.
Each day for the 20 days, I’ll post a video or an audio lecture inside my Simple Spirituality course, which is already live and poppin’ on Udemy. The course is already filled with activities and prompts for simple ways to explore your spirituality. You can pick from over 30 lectures of options, and you can also bring your own spiritual practices to the table as options for you. It’s all about whatever God has placed within you to explore, express, or reclaim.
We’ve got to decide that our spirituality, our connection to God-Self, is worth working on in proactive, intentional, consistent ways. I wrote a book about what that practice looks like for me, and I’m publishing it this Spring. But before I release the book, I wanted to offer the information in ways that allowed for guided exploration and plenty of space for your own intuition. If you crave spiritual confidence, and want some ideas for expanding your current arsenal of spiritual strengtheners, you’ll find the rituals and ideas in this course incredibly useful.
The issue as I see it, is not the artist’s choice of self-expression, it’s our tendency to rely on someone else to tell us what’s hot and what’s not. Listen with your whole self, and by all means, get down to whatever feels good. But if you’re like me and you crave deep and dope, artistry in music, and lyrics from people you’d actually want to have a conversation with, don’t look to the radio, search for yourself, and share with the world.
I’m in my flow. I even hear different things that I normally hear. I mean, it’s like I listen differently now. I hear a voice in my mind that clarifies all the words and ideas that come in. It’s like I have a translator for what I hear, and what that means in terms of my writing and my life. I feel spiritually strong.

Yes, this is about the incredibly unjust Mike Brown decision. It is in fact about police officer, Darren Wilson, not being indicted after murdering a young black boy in public. We are angry, and thankfully, we are inspired toward creating a different experience. I’m sharing this recording as a reminder of the importance of self-care and self-love in light of major tragedy.
Your You-ness is divine, and your ability to nurture that You-ness is one that requires attention, intention, and consistency. Self-Love need not be a reaction to a pain point in your life. Choose to pay more attention to yourself and your own needs; Mondays are great for re-setting powerful intentions like these.
