For a while now, it’s been shared with me that I should consider writing a book. I don’t believe this has been presented to me in the energy of I be knowing stuff, but more so in the energy of I have a way of encapsulating my experiences in a way that moves the reader to ponder, or calls the reader to action.
Every time this “author” message has been shared with me, I allowed it to deposit into my theoretical “consider this for later” box. About a month ago, I encountered a conversation of which I was an inactive and happenstance participant. I’ll tell that story later. But, my reaction to this conversation moved me to open that “consider this for later” box and tacitly approach this idea of authorship.
Anyone who truly knows me, knows that I have a unique and counterculture approach to traditional outcomes, because I place more value in the destination than the vehicle. My reaction to this conversation moved me to briefly play around with the idea of writing an actual book. However! For some reason, that felt too standard for my liking. In considering the end-goal of sharing my wisdom. I felt another vehicle would serve my highest purpose in offering me more autonomy, latitude and freedom by which to access the same outcome of a book: guidance, revelation, elevation.
Coupled alongside this desire to offer guidance, revelation and elevation, I’ve been considering how much I share and how much I desire to share, that’s not wholly ready for public consumption. Not in a casting my pearls before swine type of energy, but definitely in the same spirit of everybody ain’t ready for the gifts I desire to present.
It is with high honor and priceless privilege that I am pleased to present monthly payment access, not to my book that you can read, place on the shelf and allow to collect dust, but to my electronic journal, a digital diary, an online community of like minded people, living and breathing teachings, dynamic testimonies, active guidance, so appropriately titled:
Safety of Self, Sanctity of Self, Sacredness of Self: The Black Girl’s Guide to Protecting, Preserving and Posturing Herself for Her Divine Purpose
That title came to me after the aforementioned conversation I encountered. Again, this ain’t your typical book, it’s real-time access to a myriad of mediums, including writings, courses, interviews, meet-ups, musings, and more...all designed to guide, reveal, and elevate.
Y'all. I wrote all those previous paragraphs in February of this year, right before the pandemic. I was prepared to release this in mid-March, but Spirit said "not now." I listened, sat still, met somebody super special, quarantined, got pregnant, and side-eyed the world through this pandemic, yet, I continued and continue to receive messages.
I decided to veer from the original title, because I'm learning that healing is too dynamic and vibrant to be contained in a title. So we'll call this a breathing book. I have outlined two tiers of access, detailed below. If tribal access isn't for you now, I have archived previous blog posts, available to all to view. Also, I still share Facebook and Instagram from time to time; you can catch me there as well. Continue scrolling to learn more about tribal access to the Breathing Book.
