I was born in Kingston Jamaica and grew up with both my parents along with my sisters. We were all taught values and good moral standards like to always say please and thank you, to get up when we were on the bus and offer the elderly a seat or the disabled or a pregnant mother, to never disrespect an elder and to share what ever little we had. I must say that most of these teachings came from our mother who was a very strong independent woman but who had the most kindness and generous heart. I cannot speak for my sisters…

We have all encountered here on earth those who have come in the form of tormentors like the Land lord, the boss the co-worker the neighbor the bill collector our family members, our husbands or wives or even our children, to name a few.  What most of us do not realize is that these that we see as our enemies or tormentors are playing out their role that they came here  on earth to do.  Our mistake is to allow their actions toward us hold us back in life. Because while we are lamenting about their character they are elevating in the…

It is important for us to realize the importance of an Elder: they are deserving of respect  and honor. Respect is due to all and that is what we were taught as children growing up, where ever you grew up.  If you were not taught this at home by your parents, then the school would have filled you in. Age is honor and for a person to be blessed with long life, it is something wonderful. In Africa when an elder is praying for you the first words that are uttered are  “May you have Long Life”  and then Health, and…

There’s a Yoruba proverb that says  “When the normal becomes abnormal, evil is at work” Whenever in life you notice that every thing that used to be bright and sunny, has now turned to gloom;  your husband wants a divorce, the children are acting up, maybe they are using drugs or staying out late, if they are babies they are crying more often and you are loosing your patience with them or you lose your job, your own dog bit you, the house burns down, suddenly you a health nut falls sick or any thing that is out of the norm starts…

Any one that knows me knows that I am always teaching, and sharing a lot of my Spiritual Experiences with those who care to know.  I have often explained that there is no such thing as death. Only the  physical body dies, but the spirit lives on. We all have a spiritual double that lives on the astral planes. While we are on our journey here that twin of ours, hovers closely by. In the blog about reincarnation, I wrote about the me watching me Obara Meji in the visions, who seem to know exactly what is happening and is not afraid of…

I never knew my Grandfather while I was growing up, he died when my mother was still a teenager,  but according to my mother he was a great father, he would come to see her in Lucea, Hanover where she lived with her mother, (he lived in Montego Bay). She said he came often and took her to the fair and spend time with her. She loved him.  We did not have a picture of him, but he lived with us, oh yes he did. Because I was always afraid as a child many nights I slept between my parents, (how my mother ended up…

My mother was a Spiritualist.  She knew Things.  Lots of things, she worked for the University Of The West Indies, as a theatre room technician, but whenever we were ill and that was not very often, she took care of us, no running us to the hospital to see the Doctor. My mother had a co-worker, I never knew her name, I just remember that she was very dark-skinned, with sad-looking eyes and she would visit my mother ever Saturday and sit on the verandah while my mother prepared medicines for her to drink, I was about six or seven years old…

As a child growing up in Kingston Jamaica, I was always afraid, of what, I wasn’t always quite sure, but in the day time I was fine until night began to fall and I would worry about going to sleep especially if my sister who shared the room with me was in the country with our Grandmother and I had to sleep by myself. Something always did not feel right. I felt that there were people around me all the times and I did not know how to explain it.  Jamaican parents insists that their children wash their feet before…

This (the above title), consists of quietly concentrating attention on the heart and the region between the heart and solar plexus,  which is the physical correspondence of the Spiritual Heart; for there is the true tabernacle of the divine presence whose temple is the human body.  It should be the focus of our careful attention, in order that we may be able to hear the voice of our Spiritual Witness, and maintain the vital fire.

One night I had a vision that I was somewhere that seemed like a vast plain lush and green and beautiful, with me with an old Chinese man. He had a look like one of those Kung Fu masters with his hair held up on his head with a piece of cloth and his clothes was a light blue smock along with the pant under it. He had a quiet, wise, master full expression and as I stood beside him there was another me that I could not see that was watching the me that was there who seemed along with the man to be expecting something.  (In…
