The ink that is within my souls blueprint. 

In just 1 week I’ll be heading to a place that I dwelled for 3 years of my life. A place that shaped me in more ways than I can articulate. So many of these dots have faded into the ethers over the years and now they feel like sparkles of light. Knowing that I’m returning, my mind has been flooded with memories of my past. It feels like many of those dots are being recolored with their natural ink. The ink that is within my souls blueprint. Something is guiding me back there. When I woke up a few weeks ago with a loud voice saying ‘Go back! Just return for a visit. Now is the time.’ I didn’t ignore the message. Instead, I listened. I trusted that it’s time. I feel both excited and anxious. But I’m looking forward to taking a few steps backwards so I can reconnect the dots and perhaps bring a part of me hOMe that I left behind. 

Raise your vibration by sending good wishes to the people who try and bring you down. 

There will always be people involved in similar activities or passions as myself. They will do what they are gifted at and vice versa. 

Success doesn’t decrease by praising another for their accomplishments. 

Jealousy and competition are not strengths and when someone tries to project those feelings onto me, I only go higher. 

To try and slander me on social media with a passive aggressive post is not going to solve an issue. And trying to cover it up by deleting it isn’t going to solve it either. Because I saw it and so did my friends. Treating me like a jerk even though I held their hand at one point is their stuff and not mine. I’m on my side of the screen sending them compassion. Because that’s the world today. Everything is on the other side of the screen. 

Maybe to some, my post looks passive aggressive. It’s more about spreading the message. I don’t mind if anyone even reads it. 

Just like Michelle Obama said ‘When they go low, we go high’

Note to self: Raise your vibration by sending good wishes to the people who try and bring you down. I am where I am due to decades of hard work. I had to fall hard on my hands and knees in order to get up this high.

So Thank you to that lesson and for showing me the darkness so that I could turn on my light.

This is dedicated to Zora Belle. 
She was a Scorpio too. 
Her name matches that. 

This was my great grandmothers name. 

It’s very unique.

 I like it. 

I wanted to type it up and see what it looks like on screen. 

Black bean brownies

I’ve been on a baking spree the past few days. It all started because I had extra canned goods from the week of Irma. I stocked up my pantry in case she struck Charlotte, NC. 

The canned goods were on the counter and  my boyfriend says “Hey what are you planning to do with this sweet potatoe purée?” Me ‘I’m not sure yet, I had them just in case Irma knocked out the electricity.”

He says ‘You can make a cake with that.’ 

A sweet potato cake? Yum!!

I got so excited that I went into the kitchen to scramble the ingredients. Check it out here: Flourless sweet potato cake

Now I’m inspired to create other healthy treats with my other canned goods that were leftover. 

Black beans! 

I researched how to make black bean brownies.  It’s very simple and so delicious! I think they taste better than my last batch of ‘conventional’ brownies because this time I actually made it with real superfoods & ingredients. 

Check it out. Look at the pics and then scroll further for the recipe. 


Black Bean Brownies:

Total bake time: 15-18 minutes 

1 1/2 cups of black beans. (Be sure and drain the liquid and rinse the beans well)

2 tbsp cacao (or cocoa)

1/2 cup of oats

1/4 tsp salt (I used Himalayan pink salt) 

1/3 cup honey (maple syrup or agave)

Pinch of stevia or sugar

1/4 cup coconut oil 

 1 tbsp of cashew butter (I used this because I didn’t have 2 tsp of vanilla extract.)

1 tbsp of coconut milk yogurt. (I used this because I didn’t have 1/2 tsp of baking powder. 

•I added 2 eggs to create more density. Plus I like eggs. They are good for me. 

•I also added some goji berries, sliced almonds and blueberries. 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Put all ingredients into a blender. 

Once it’s like a mix, put it in a baking pan. 

Cook 15-18 minutes 

Let it sit 10 minutes before eating. 

Let it cool overnight in the refrigerator. It’s always good after sitting that long. 

Enjoy!!
