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.

Peace by Design

Sharing a few highlights of what I’ve been up to over the past few weeks. This is definitely the season of yes for me.

Answering the call to show up as a presenter and to share my custom program Socialize to over 70 corporate professionals was definitely a faith move on my part.
I am ecstatic to report that my out-of-the box style of solutioning was well received and met with great reviews.

Change Your Mind

Realizing it has been several weeks since my last check-in, let me first start by saying…Hello Origins of Peace Family!

I hope you are well; I pray things have been working in your favor and I wish blessings upon blessings on your life.

So where have I been? I’ve been doing all the things. Coaching, Consulting, Organizing, Developing and Facilitating!  The grand thing about it all is that I love what I do.

I’ve been showing up in new spaces, introducing the world to Origins of Peace and the peace methodologies that I use to conduct business.

I’ve been demonstrating the art of softness in my message, my work, my thoughts and actions.

I’ve been shedding the belief that business has to be corporate, buttoned up and hardcore all of the time. I have to admit that it feels great!

You may be under the impression that in order to be taken seriously in your business your message has to be perfect, your brand has to show consistency in all areas, and you have to complete a 10-point check list of things to do before implementing.

Truthfully, none of these things has to be perfect for you to make an impact.

Romans 12:4 says “For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function”…

We all have unique talents and different areas of influence. Focus on your strengths and allow The Law of Process and The Law of Addition to work in your favor.

What are you focusing on today? Are you ready to get started?

If you’ve been on the fence about starting something new because you do not feel qualified enough, it’s okay to

Change Your Mind

We each have different areas of influence and we inspire in a variety of ways.

You are strong, you are powerful, you are brave, you are capable, you are worthy, you are entitled, you are prepared, and you are worth the effort it takes to make your dream a reality.

Once you take the first step toward your next, all of the elements that you need to refine your vision will start falling into place.

Trust the process of next and keep pushing forward.

If you are ready to move forward and peacefully create your next, I would love to help you create the blueprint for your something new.

Let’s discuss your next. Is it a new career path, new business, or something else that you are interested in?

Now is the time to plan and create.

Let’s work!

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.
