It never ceases to amaze me, when I met people for the 1st time and can give them great insights into who they are just by knowing their 1st name. I had the pleasure of connecting with some fe-nominal artists at the African Fest on Labor Day weekend this year and we connected immediately. It went something like this
Today at the African Fest, we screened our stageplay The Falls during the Faith and Hollywood segment in the Film Pavilion. I was introduced to an interesting woman who called herself a spiritual healer, intuitive and empath. (Ummm...ok. **side eye**) She asked my first name, which she spelled correctly without me telling her (RARE...) and began to tell me about myself.... "You like to...have to....have structure. You like things a certain way...""You think people should know what you know...and you talk to them that way assuming they know. And they don't know. And you don't understand why they don't know...so it comes off as...being a "Know It All"...but you really don't mean any harm.""You are very strong in finances....you are very strong creatively...and that creativity is going to make you a lot of money. You are very powerful.""You can have addictive tendencies...whether to food, relationships or the type of men....""You are very good at playing devil's advocate...getting people to look at things from different angles""You are a leader....and if you are in a space and something is not being done correctly, by default you will take over." Then she asked how did she do. I just stood there, pondering, while my mother and friend stared at me with these big cheesy grins. Not to say I agree with EVERY-THANG that she said (clears throat)...but I really have been in a space of self-reflection and analyzing...how I see and am seen. My "branding". And with that, honoring my 40 years of life, I've decided to go on a 40 day consecration of ME. Mind, body, spirit, soul. thirties girl www.thirtiesgirl.blogspot.com
When I received the call saying "check out your impact in such a short time" thanks Eugene, it sent chills all over my body. To God be the glory that I am on purpose helping other people reflect on their life, their value, and be open to the "Divine shifts".
