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 Shine Your Light through Education

I was recently asked to speak about my book The Five Star Points for Success at a high school. They were about to take their year-end finals, and the administration called upon me to encourage and inspire the students by sharing with them how important education has been to manifesting my dreams and achieving my life’s purpose. I was thrilled, because education has been absolutely critical to my personal growth and my life’s successes. Many people in the entertainment industry believe that you don’t have to go to school in order to succeed. While I do not think that everyone … Continue reading »

post title background Stop, I repeat, STOP calling yourself and other women “Bitch”! – A Post for All You Powerful Women: Stand in Your Own Radiance!

A Post for All You Powerful Women:  Stand in Your Own Radiance!   I have been super busy with some exciting new projects (including pre-production on The 5 Star Points for Success audio book and loads of new music!) as I continue to transform the Spirit of Oya brand, so I have been away from my blog for a while. But I had to stop everything to write this post, because there is a phenomenon going on among women that really concerns me.   I have been talking about this subject for some time and expressing my opinion about it … 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 The Power of Delegation

You can’t do it all. And trust me, because I tend to believe I am Superwoman and can do everything myself. So, if I say you can’t, you really can’t! Here’s the thing: There are only so many hours in the day, and if we spread ourselves thinly across a million tasks that need to get done, we won’t do any of them well and at the level they deserve to be done. We need help. And I believe that we should hire talented people to help us do what they do best, so we have the space and peace … 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 Know Your Worth

How much are you worth? That can be a tough question for many of us to ask ourselves, but valuing yourself inside and aligning that self-worth with the actions you take in your life are very important to honoring your spirit and letting your light shine bright. With that idea in mind, dig a little deeper: Do you think what you do in your life is important? Do you feel that what you charge for the work you do is enough? Are you happy every time you get money from your client, or do you find yourself experiencing guilt or … Continue reading »
