Take Me To The Water, I Want To Be Baptized

Pliny’s Fountain – Manduria, Italy

I have so much to be thankful for.

Six years ago, I had no hair, almost no weight, no energy, null….effects of chemicals to combat a life threatening illness.

A dark place can often manifest as a result of negative energies, negative circumstances, negative people, negative nucleus and negative infrastructure. And then one becomes ill.

However, one can choose to activate the concept that a negative plus a negative equals positive.

This black woman took a mistake and turned it into a masterpiece.

Teaching vocal technique/movement to cancer patients in Basel at the Cancer League elevated energies to a higher level…I am able to take my test and make it a testimony for the good of others going through the fire. The prophetess Anna was reknown for her attitude, not her age. She was known for her Father, the Almighty, not her husband, a man of flesh. She celebrated God in all that she did. Even through difficult and challenging times, she continued to praise God.

Six years later, I glorify in the wisdom that hurled me into a proactive approach to my healing. What I learned is that:

In spite of my pain, I reached out and assisted others in their healing. I became proactive. I didn’t wallow in self-defeat, self-loathing, self-destruction.

I veered away from negative situations, negative folk who brought me down. I surround myself with folk who see the good in me and who are proactive about making positive changes around them and within the world. I encourage anyone to do the same.

Go to places that assist in your healing.

Connect with people who enjoy your company.

Go on the street and sing!

Dance, act, paint, ride a bicycle, teach what you know…smile, laugh, get a massage, get your nails done, try a new hairdo, if financially feasible, go to another country, change your environment, if even for a week-end.

Accept that things will change for the better. If you feel really really feel like you are in a funk, seek professional help. Do Not Stay in the Chasm!!!
