Love & Culture Month

Welcome to February, the month designated for the appreciation of blackness and love, remember to lead with love.

                                           “you attract more goodness with honey than vinegar.”

You cannot be bitter and spiteful toward those you lead or love and expect them to show up as their best self!

What’s one thing that you can implement during the next week to lead with honey (love).

Origins of Peace,
Melissa

Have you joined the Sister Support Circle yet?

Spiritual and Emotional trauma are just two of the often-ongoing consequences of experiencing a breast cancer diagnosis. My program, Managing Life After Crisis is a program designed to help women who have experienced crisis; heal from the experience, recover by managing resistance to healing and grow by implementing practical life strategies that promote confidence to progress through life with peaceful and positive intentions toward self.

This Sunday during the Sister Support Circle, we’re focusing on self-reflective processes that examine the relationship between trauma and healing, while utilizing creativity and peer support to create a healing framework.

Are you a breast cancer Survivor? If so, join the Circle to receive support and stay in the Circle to provide support.

The next 5 breast cancer Survivor’s to join The Sister Support Circle will receive a copy of the book, Manifesting Dreams, An Intention-Setting Guided Workbook.

Let’s talk about Creative Freedom 

Happy Sunday to you!

Today I am sharing one final lesson from my eBook Pray with Ease.

Creative Freedom 

Exercising Creative Freedom is much like wandering and exploring.

Have you ever taken a long walk in the woods or through a botanical garden? Maybe you’re adventurous and like to hike alongside a mountain waterfall.

When you have creative freedom in God’s word, it’s much like an exploration. You can freely move at your own pace and immerse yourself in everything that is around you while expressing your gratitude for the experience. 

Creative Freedom allows you to be bold, powerful and intentional. Once you set your intentions and find your Energy Enhancers take a moment to immerse yourself in the words. Explore the scriptures and feel the inspiration that is embedded within. 

Focused Intention + Energy Enhancers + Creative Freedom = The Ability to Pray with Easy

You are now ready to pray those bold, powerful, impactful prayers!

Here is a list of a few of my favorite tools for enhancing spiritual wellness: 

  • T.D. Jakes Woman Thou Art Loosed Bible 

  • The Bible Experience Old & New Testament 

  • Woman Evolve by Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • Journal & Writing Pen 

I wish you great success in all of your endeavors.

Are You A Survivor…

If so, join our Sister Support Circle

Every breast cancer Survivor needs a support circle.   It’s time to find yours.

Your circle should be filled with those who are rooting for you when you feel down, who sit with you when you don’t feel well and who push you when you fail to show up as your best self. A breast cancer Survivor is already powerful – but when survivors who are determined to thrive become a collective, great things always happen.

  • Are you a woman who has survived breast cancer?

  • Are you ready to find and connect with your sister support circle?

  • Do you find it challenging to get genuine support and find people who can empathize with you?

  • Are you ready to offer the support that you are desperately in need of?

If you can relate to any of the questions above, join us for the Sister Support Circle. This exclusive event is especially for woman breast cancer Survivors to unite through a common bond, gain support from other Survivors, and foster a life-long support network.
