PEACE QUEEN

Sunflowers

“I WILL DO MY VERY BEST,” is what I said to myself, as I write in my journal.

The last few months been truly an eye opener for  me. As I’m going through this journey…”This Spiritual Awakening.” Embracing My Natural Beauty, the QUEEN I AM. Marrying my passion, promoting the importance of a WHolistic Lifestyle through knowledge and my products…

I was enroll at a university, studying Health Education, as expected  I was getting the basic health. As you may or may not know, the “general health” that is taught does not truly educate us about what’s really in our foods, products, and etc. The sad part is the general health education is built on educating incorrect knowledge, money, and genocide. While going through this spiritual journey, I discovered what is truly a healthy lifestyle. WHolistic Health. This is a subject that is least discussed, but many overlook that its the key to life. What is wholistic health? It is the science of body, mind, and spirit. Wholistic health is also understood that:

  • ALL THINGS IN NATURE ARE RELATED
  • ALL MATTER IN NATURE ORIGINATED FROM “THE ONE DIVINE SERVICE.”
  • ALL CREATION IS RELATED AND SIMILAR, BUT EACH LIVING ORGANISM IS ORIGINAL AND UNIQUE.
  • ALL LIFE AND MATTER WAS CREATED FOR A SPECIFIC PURPOSE AND FOR SPECIFIC DIVINE REASON.

Going through this journey, I began to become fed up on what the system is doing to our people, foods, products, and our bodies. My first vision, having my own health blog to fulfill my purpose on advocating a healthy lifestyle, opening the mind, and uplifting Kings and Queens. Along with that, I discovered my passion , my love, my art. Creating safe and environmental products to my people. I am on a mission to promote the importance of being HEALTH CONSCIOUS.   I then began to reevaluate. What am I doing to work towards my goals? What am I doing to be better? If you have a passion for something that you want to pursue, why be around  people or somewhere who doesn’t support it? I listened to my heart made many more achievements. Did what I did and remove unwanted energy.

No LONGER wanted to be stuck in a box.

NO LONGER wanted to be restricted

NO LONGER wanted to fit in.

It’s okay to be different, its okay to be happy.

So why not be happy?

HEALTH IS WEALTH

 

 

SPECIAL THANKS

 

To Family & Friends

I love and appreciate everyone that has been there for me! Peace & Blessings.

 

To My King,

You are Amazing! I’ve been enjoying this journey with you.Thank you for loving me for me and supporting my goals. Peace & Blessings.

 

To My Customers,

I appreciate you guys trust and support! Peace & Blessings.

 

 

ENSLAVED BY THE SYSTEM: Part 2

WARNING: IF YOU NOT WILLING TO OPEN YOUR MIND AND EDUCATE YOURSELF, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.

THIS IS DEEP, CONTINUE ON IF YOU MAY.

Enslavement (1619-PRESENT)

It’s crazy how we as the black community suffer from brainwash activities. Truth is, slavery really wasn’t abolished, it was advanced. Advanced with new tactics, same strategies, and ideas by white supremacists (THE OPPRESSOR).

Let’s get this straight, EUROPEANS DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE BLACK COMMUNITY. They honestly want us all to suffer and deteriorate. Europeans know that we are the true definition of ROYALTY. We sustain Melanin substance that is used to make all brain cells in the body. Melanin protects from ultraviolet rays and gives us physiological superiority. Europeans hate that with a passion. The European American Culture reinforces white supremacy through its media (tv, radio, newspaper, movies, and science). They depend physically on us for “servitude roles” such as “house nigger jobs” (office workers, soldiers, scientist, professionals, athletes, entertainers, educators, doctors, mayors, elected officials). Along with depending on us for physical entertainment (actors, singers, music). What really gets me is Europeans have this assumption that we are sexually exotic, erotic, savage animals, and etc. Which in reality they are the real pediofiles and sicken animals.

 

War on Drugs

We live in a fast paced world that is full of hidden history and mind control. All laws and biased opinions are based on the governing system, in other words, “welcome to modern day slavery.” One of the major issues that has been going on in racism is the war on drugs. Question is , what really classifies as a drug? In society, drugs are characterized as a substance which has physiological effect(s) when introduced in the body. Basically saying, that drugs are a substance that affect the person’s physical or mental state. If you really want to get technical, then why do hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, and stores still prescribe or sale drugs?

Don’t drugs affect a person’s physical and mental state?

Aren’t prescriptions and “over-the-counters” drugs?

For example, we are so quick to speak negatively about marijuana, but lack evidence on why it is so harmful for you. We would rather go on-and-on about marijuana, but forget that prescriptions and “over-the-counters” lead to harmful chemicals in our bodies that are full of toxic!

Ever wonder why doctors be so quick to prescribed medications instead of actually listening and being concerned?

Why does it seems like it’s always more than one prescriptions all at once? Is it because they want to dose us up and maintain the toxic in our bodies?

Why even take something with no knowledge about it anyways? Do you really know what’s all in it?

And what I don’t get is, why take something with various side effects? If it was truly good for our bodies, why would it cause our body to react negatively?

 

History of Violence & Children: Beating, Hitting, and Spanking Children

Question.

Parents, can you give me a legitimate reason on why you beat, hit, or spank your children?

Did you know Ancient Africans never used physical violence? Instead, they were understanding, they believed in communication, and followed a holistic lifestyle.

So where did beating, hitting and spanking come from?

 

Europeans, of course. Europeans proudly practiced beating amongst black children, women, and men. Along with raping our people constantly over and over. Europeans considered us as animals and beating was apart of fear and enslavement. Our ancestors suffered day after day!

So as black parents, why do you continue to repeat horrible events just like the oppressor did to our ancestors?

Beating, hitting, and spanking your kids is NOT LOVE.

Honestly, in my opinion it’s a sign of weakness just like the oppressor. Enslaving your children, putting fear and violence is ignorance.

 

Guide your Children holistically.

 

 

 

Religion: The Dirty Truth

Did you know the most famous English slave trader, Sir John Hawkins, named his slave ships Angel, Jesus and Grace of God. Hawkins was known to be a religious man who required his crew to “serve God daily.” Services were held on board twice a day.

Sound familiar?

Religion is a tactic that has been used over and over towards the black community. Religion is manipulation game that destroy and overpower your soul. Religion represents enslavement. Religion was a weapon back then and is now.

Frederick Douglass said it best:                   

         “ I am filled with unutterable loathing when I contemplate religious pomp and show, together with horrible inconsistencies, which every where surround me. We have men-stealers for ministers, and cradle-plunderers for church members. The man who wields the blood-clotted cowskin (whip) during the week fills the pulpit on Sunday, and claims to be a minister of meek and lowly Jesus. The man who robs me of my earrings at the end of each week meets me as a class-leader on Sunday morning, to show me the way of life, and the path of salvation. He who sells my sister, for purposes of prostitution, stands forth as the pious advocate of purity. He who proclaims it a religious duty to read the Bible denies me the right of learning to read the name of the God who made me. He who is the religious advocate of marriage robs whole millions (of slaves) of its sacred influence, and leaves them to the ravages of wholesale (moral) pollution. The warm defender of the sacredness of the family relation is the same that scatters whole families, – sundering husbands and wives, parents and children, sisters and brothers, leaving the hut vacant, and the hearth desolate. We see the thief preaching against theft, and the adulterer against adultery. We have men sold to build churches, women sold to support the gospel, and babes sold to purchase Bibles for the poor heathen! all for the glory of God and the good of souls! The slave auctioneer’s bell and the church-going bell chime in with each other, and the bitter cries of the heart-broken slave are drowned in the religious shouts of his pious master. Revivals of religion and revivals in the slave-trade go hand in hand together. The slave prison and the church stand near each other. The clanking of fetters and the rattling of chains in the prison, and the pious psalm and solemn prayer in the church, may be heard at the same time. The dealers in the bodies and souls of men erect their stand in the presence of the pulpit, and they mutually help each other. The dealer gives his blood-stained gold to support the pulpit, and the pulpit, in return, covers his infernal business with the garb of Christianity. Here we have religion and robbery the allies of each other-devils dressed in angels’ robes, and hell presenting the semblance of paradise. (Frederick Douglass, In The Words of Frederick Douglass: Quotations from Liberty’s Champion.)”

                          

 

For many centuries slavery was perfectly acceptable to Christians. Looking at relevant passages it is clear that the bible does endorse slavery. In the Old Testament God approved the practice and laid down rules for buyers and sellers (Exodus 21:1-11, Leviticus 25:44) Men are at liberty to sell their own daughters (Exodus 21:7). Slaves can be inherited (Leviticus 25:45-6). It is acceptable to beat slaves, since they are property- A MASTER WHO BEATS HIS SLAVE TO DEATH IS NOT PUNISHED AS LONG AS THE SLAVE STAYS ALIVE FOR A DAY OR TWO AS THE LOSS OF THE MASTER’S PROPERTY IS PUNISHMENT ENOUGH.

The New Testament also regards slavery as acceptable as well. It instructs slaves to accept their position with humility (Ephesians 6:5-8) and to please their masters in everything (Titus 2:9, Colossians 3:22) Jesus himself mentioned slavery more than once according to the New Testament, but never with the slightest hint of criticism of it. He even talked highly of the master-slave relationship as a model of the relationship between God and human mankind (Matthew 18:23 and 25:14).

 

THIS MENTAL SLAVERY IS REAL RATHER YOU KNOW IT OR NOT. WAKE UP KINGS & QUEENS IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE!

LET US RISE!

 

Peace & Blessings.
