post title background Life is a Miracle

I am always fascinated by human life and the science of anatomy. And you know what? Science proves just what miracles we all are. Just the fact that you are here means you won the lotto! Think about it:  Hundreds of millions of sperm are released, and each sperm tries to go for the egg, but only one can win. Some sperm die, and others get lost while swimming the equivalent of several miles to the egg. Finally, one lucky sperm penetrates and fertilizes the egg. And life has begun … your life. The egg and the sperm join to … Continue reading »

post title background Respect Yourself

I have been thinking a lot about the definition of respect lately. What does that word mean, exactly? The dictionary tells us that respect is “a feeling of admiring someone or something that is good, valuable, important.” It is also “a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way.” After hearing these two definitions, can you say you respect yourself? Many people are so wrapped up in not feeling like they are getting the respect they deserve. And they point fingers at their boss, boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, children, friends and … Continue reading »

post title background Making a “Pledge to Love You”

As we nestle into the heart of wedding season, my team and I decided that putting out “Pledge to Love You” — the second song from my Spirit of Oya album — would be a great idea. And this got me thinking about this particular song and what inspired me to write it. When other people hear this song, they think of a beautiful wedding song, one that commemorates the loving commitment they make to the man or woman of their dreams. While that is definitely a big part of what was in my heart when I was writing the … Continue reading »

post title background Be True to Your Heart and Mind: Give 100 Percent

If you absolutely love what you do and what you create in your life, do not let anyone sway you from living your dream. As artists, we can sometimes be sensitive with our creations. But if you are really confident, love your own work and put everything you have into it, you just have to allow people to have their opinions and not let negative feedback prevent you from staying on course. Over the years, I have heard some of my clients and peers in the music industry get really upset when someone criticizes their work. And the will start … Continue reading »

post title background Moving into the Light

Sometimes I find myself wanting something that is not good for me – that will hold me back from my life’s purpose. And I might get so involved in this dark thing on a daily, weekly or monthly basis that I cannot focus on the light, and it brings me down. I strive to manifest all the good things I know are inside me, but the distractions are thick and deep, emotionally embedded in my soul, and I feel like something powerful has a hold on me. But my spirit continues to fight this darkness in order to find something … Continue reading »

post title background Make a Fresh Start for Spring

Spring is finally here, the time when we think about the excitement of rebirth, growth and new beginnings. Do you ever feel like starting over? Maybe you look around your home and realize that your space is cluttered and makes you feel weighted down. You might take a closer look at your friendships or romantic relationship and realize you just don’t feel fulfilled and supported. Or, perhaps you don’t feel your job is allowing you to live out your passions and dreams. Are you happy? If not, you are not alone. But I want to encourage you to take action … Continue reading »

One of life’s greatest gifts is the ability to feel emotion, true emotion.  Whether elation or sadness, emotions let us know we are alive, that we feel.  The ability to feel emotion is something, we as human beings on this earth all share.
