If you are into podcasts, and spirituality, maybe you’ve heard of Joel Osteen. I’m sure there’s politics around him. He is a white male with money and success. Honestly though, I don’t want to google that today. It’s so easy to find fault with everyone on the internet, probably even Mother Teresa, that I am choosing to bring only positivity into this post.
I just happened to stumble upon his podcast one day, and truly he is a wonderful speaker. I got hooked. If you want to feel good, and need a little spiritual restoration, and want to uplift yourself, try him out. There is somethig about him that reaches into you, digs deep, connects and doesn’t want to let go… and you want to keep listening. Even if you are a “liberal latina spiritual lesbian” like me (which is not who I truly am…but that’s another post on human existentialism I won’t go into today).
In the episode/sermon “Say So” he speaks about the importance of saying things out loud, and he finishes the sermon with a blessing. This morning I typed it down, and adapted it a little bit for myself. I have printed it out and hung it in my room, where I will committ to recite it outloud every morning along with my meditation practice.
The blessing is a follows:
Say it like you mean it:
I am blessed.
I am prosperous.
I am strong.
I am healthy.
I am talented.
I am creative.
I am competent.
I am secure.
I am disciplined.
I am focused.
I am attractive.
I am well liked.
I have a good personality.
The right people are in my future.
The right opportunities are headed my way.
I will accomplish my dreams.
I will overcome every obstacle.
2019 is my year.
Things have shifted in my favor.
God is about to show me something that I’ve never seen.
It’s going to be
than I ever imagined.
I am safe in the hands of God.
I am present today.
I am here now.
I have faith.
Do it too. Print it out. Put it up in your wall, in your bathroom, in your notebook, next to your desk, your bed, your altar. Just make it happen. Try it out with me for the next 30 days. This is another step I am taking for myself to live more in the moment, to fill me, and to truly just be.
Hope this fills you up too.
Cheers to those 3,500 days of our lives that we bleed!

The three faces of Eve… She is amazing.
I gave up TV and fell deep into the music and books y’all. Not gonna go on and on about it, but life, I must admit, is improving and it wasn’t so bad to begin with.

Feels like a curse.

But it means everything.
Two of us on the run.
I can be the one who’s going insane.

Took me 5 years to find them…but I did.
Joyful Heart Foundation, launched a new national PSA campaign, Shelved, yesterday to raise awareness about the untested rape kit backlog and engage people in helping solve this problem. They “are seeking to activate grassroots support for our work in state capitols around the country to change the way rape kits are handled, expand survivors’ rights, and ensure every single kit is tested. Every single kit, in every state.”
Mushpa + Mensa has written about Joyful Heart in a previous entry entitle, No More Boys Will Be Boys. Please go check it out to learn more about how they are helping to end rape kits backlog and how you can help as well.
By supporting us we have been able to support them and for that we thank you!
