Real Leaders Ask for Help

 

Real Leaders Ask for Help

by China 

 

Part of being a strong leader is asking for help. It's having enough humility and grace to know that you can't go it alone. 

We need each other. 

When everyone wakes up to their inherent power, they see that each individual is actually a self-governing leader in their own right.

One of my ways of successfully and efficiently leading myself is through the catharsis of writing...


There's so much going on in the world with the recent election and the fight our water protectors are putting up – so much. Then, yesterday came the news that some truly incredible people died at a party in Oakland, California where my partner is a community leader. My San Francisco DJ – I could count on one hand how many of his events I missed in 7 years – is close friends with some of those who passed. 

What's interesting that I noticed is some of the people who “died” (I'm going to use the word “transcended” from now on since I don't believe in death.) were truly amazing individuals.

These were the kind of people who touched everyone's lives in a positive way and would never let people play small – they would call you out on your shit. 

They believed in you. 

They brought optimism, joy, beauty, and love to humanity. 

This is the legacy they leave for all to contemplate and integrate in consciousness – myself included. 

See, I knew this time on the planet was coming. This is the moment when the rock has been turned over and everything is crawling out from underneath it. 

It's ugly. 

This has been prophesied and I have actually known about this and been preparing for this since I was a child. It's a huge part of why I have been meditating and having such a deep, profound spiritual practice all of these decades. I – and my family – have known this was on the way. 

We recently came out of an age of darkness and we have now (ever so slightly) shifted into a positive trajectory. The change is not massive, however; it will increase in our lifetime, and even more with each generation. Your children will have an easier time of it, and your children's children will have an even easier time. 

And one day - on this planet - things will be quite different than they are now. 

For now though, let's focus on the present. 

Through this dark age, people had become complacent, codependent, and not living in their joy and passion. Doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results. Trying to fight fear with fear. 

So, what are the opposing forces fighting against? 

They are fighting against the rise of LOVE. 

In any moment there is only the choice between fear and love. This is within your own control - 

right now. 

Ask yourself, “What would love do next? What would love say next? What would love think next?” 

How many are actually harnessing and focusing this diligently and consistently enough to make an impact? 

Everyone is going to play their role right now. Some people are meant to be on the picket line. Others are meant to be activists for certain causes. And some are meant to hold a frequency and vibration (we can see this in our children – they are excellent anchors for Divine Energy). 

It's taken me 39 years to finally admit (and now accept) my own role. 

My first experience of crippling trauma came when I was in the womb. My Mother was 5 months pregnant when my Father did his first foul shit to us as a family (sorry Mom, if you're not wanting me to be public with this). 

I know and understand the opposite of love. 

I've seen the dark depths of hell. 

But...

don't cry for me Argentina. 

The contrast of the darkness (absence of light) has been one of my greatest gifts, in that it's been a fantastic catalyst for transformation, which lead me to PEACE and JOY. 

At this juncture, there must be contrast in order for humanity to sound the trumpets, wake the sleepers, and bring forth LOVE. 

This is the point where collectively we say, “Enough is enough. We. Command. Love.” 

It is our birthright and inheritance. 

25+ years of a sturdy AF meditation practice says that I can NEVER be convinced otherwise. The deeper within I go, the more I know that I don't know shit. 

The only thing I am *certain* of is the power, presence, and victor of LOVE. 

The individual choice must be made (and committed to), and we must now support each other as we enter this fresh territory.  

“My life is a revolution.” - Indigemama

Who are you BEing right now?

Are you being the change? Are you being the space? Only you can truly and honestly answer this question. 

Now is the time to live in this present moment and look around and appreciate the privilege that you have. 

You have your mind, you have your life – you are ALIVE. 

Go within to know your part. And then play your TRUE role with the resilience and determination of a dog with a bone. 

This is your Legacy. 

Share it with us - NOW. 

(My role was to overcome as a mixed black woman and blaze a pathway of consciousness - hope, truth, light, and VICTORY - and to emanate that from here on out.)

The path of LOVE demands that we BE more, GIVE more, and RECEIVE more. It's the path of uncertainty and of the unknown. It's the road less traveled.

Now is the time to show and tell people that you love them.  
Now is the time to smile and extend kindness. 
Now is the time to radiate more love than you ever have before – regardless of the feedback you get from your external reality, world, and society. 

Now is the time to cease looking at external circumstances to tell you who you are – and who you choose to be. 

Things are falling apart because they are coming together.

There are other sentient, harmonious lifeforms in the galaxies and the universe, but we can't see them because we (as a collective family) aren't resonate with them (yet). However...

we are evolving into resonance. 

“Folks, it's time to evolve. That's why we're troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything's failing? It's because, um – they're no longer relevant. We're supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right?”

― Bill Hicks

Right now, the appearance of things shows us as divided and against each other. The way out of this is to look within and ask yourself, how are you divided and against yourself? 

What do you feel like the world is withholding from you? Because whatever you feel that the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world. 

It is truly time to ask yourself not what your world can do for you, but what you can do for your planet and the beings on it.

This is also in honor of people (like those who left us in the Oakland fire) who spent their lives being a force for good. They fought in their own way – by holding onto LOVE - and so many benefited from it. 

So many lives were touched – mine included. 

Do you understand that those you love, and all that you hold dear, can disappear right now? Everything is temporary and fleeting and transitory - the people in your life and your assets - waking up tomorrow is never guaranteed. 

If you are so blessed to wake up and breathe, start by asking yourself, “What am I passionate about?”

Ask those around you – what are they passionate about? 

Spark real dialog and emanate your aligned, centered role from the inside-out. 

And dear God, ask for help. 

I believe in you.

What are you passionate about?

The Power of This Queendom

by China

 



You don't fit in

You never have

Stop trying

Stand out

Be colorful

Be vibrant

Be slightly threatening

Intimidating

In your transparent Glory

They want to control and manipulate you

And they can't

And they know

That to meet you eye to eye

It requires them to be more

So they would rather you shrink

Instead of doing the work

They know they need to do

Shine anyway

Like the blinding sun

That's what sunglasses are for

You're a powerhouse

A fucking leader

You don't fit in with them

You fit in with us

We see you

We get you

Face Your Shadow

Face Your Shadow

by China

 

I honor and respect your power. 
I honor and respect your power.
I honor and respect your power.

This post is not for the faint of heart. You’ve been warned...

Last night I took a bath and I watched a video about shadow by Matt Kahn. I fell asleep immediately after and proceeded to have one of the most horrifying dreams I have ever had (rare for me). 

There was a stunningly gorgeous woman who was wreaking havoc on the neighborhood and communities. She was all the “worst” things – theft, murder, controlling others via the use of heavy black magic, etc. I decided to make it my mission to find her and “eradicate” her. When I did, I called her a “bitch”. We went toe to toe and fought across many lands – flying high in the air as well as battling on solid earth. She tried to cut my hair. I attempted to bite parts of her face off. She was so strong that, at one point, I went to hide underground. My friend Vanessa was with me in what looked like the corridor of an Egyptian Pyramid. We were moving quickly through a tunnel, which at first appeared free for travel, yet, a brick wall materialized directly blocking our path. We were trapped. This alluring woman laughed at my light, taunting me and saying, “That’s all you got? You’re weak,” (the complete opposite of my Vegas experience). It was scary. At the end of the dream I found her, trying to relax, in my childhood room of the house I grew up in (peach walls), surrounded by her ladies-in-waiting. I caught her off-guard and grabbed her by the throat. She was so vulnerable. I said to her, “Is this what you want? For us to keep going like this?” I could have killed her in that moment – if she hadn’t looked at me with this, “I need love,” desperation in her eyes. She tried to hide that glance from me, but it was too late. I had already seen her core truth. Underneath it all, she was as exhausted as I was. We simply could not keep going like that – trying to “out power” each other. The bottom line was that both of us wanted to be recognized and respected. 

There is significance to my friend Vanessa being in the dream. In “real” life she has been true blue, showing up when I’m upleveling, feeling alone, and purging for myself and the collective . She is brave enough to hold supportive space for me when I do some of the deeper, darker work. Years ago she helped me when I was exiting (for good) a druggie lifestyle. Once I stopped hanging out at raves until 6AM, distancing myself from the toxicity, my then group of what I had thought were my close friends, turned on me. It was brutal. They slandered my character and dragged my name through the mud. I was incredibly hurt. Vanessa was one of the few people who remained solid and sturdy. She never took sides. I remember calling her early one morning (I woke her up.) saying, “I don’t know what I’m doing. Why am I doing this? This is so hard. I feel so alone.” And she said, “No, no! You are doing so good. Don’t go back. After everything you’ve been telling me, that’s not what you want.” She never judged me. She loved me back to life. After that conversation, I immediately went on to create my very first YouTube videos. 

So…who was the marvelous woman in my dream? My shadow. She’s ME. 

When we ignore the shadow it becomes that health problem that we can’t quite “get rid of”. It becomes those financial issues that “no matter what I do, this doesn’t go away”. It becomes the “why can’t I be in the relationship of my dreams”, etc. When unacknowledged, the shadow turns on us and tries to eat us alive. People on a spiritual path have been told to only have “good thoughts” and that evolution and ascension is supposed to look a certain way. Sigh. 

New. Age. Bullshit. (what I honestly believe to be a tricky and clever web in the “matrix”)

I woke from my dream around 3AM. For the first time I was genuinely enthralled by the enormously intense capability that my shadow has. Then, I did something I have never done before. I told my beautiful, glorious shadow, 

“I honor and respect your power.” 

With conviction and awe I said, 

“Oh God you are so magnificent!
Oh God you are so magnificent!
Oh God you are so magnificent!”

For decades I have been saying the above decree to what I considered to be my “God” side – the light, love, peace, joy, bliss side. I had NEVER said this to my shadow side – the hate, anger, jealousy, fear, resentment, sadness side. My shadow responded, saying, “Thank you,” and exhaled a big breath of relief. 

To you who are reading this, 

I honor and respect your power.
I honor and respect your power.
I honor and respect your power.

Will You Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway?

Will You Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway? 

by China

 

Will You Do It Scared?

Will you do it even though:

“I don’t have the money.”
“I can’t afford it.”
“Mercury is in Retrograde.”
“I have a baby and a new boyfriend.”
“I just quit my job.”
“I’m terrified.”
“I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing.”
“I’m going to make a fool of myself.”
“What if I fail?”
“It’s so much work.”
“What will the others (insert one – wife, family, sister, brother, mother) think/say?”

(This can be applied to every area of life – romance, health, wealth, career, etc)

Will you feel the fear and do it anyway?

This is a picture of a girl at an intense three-day training called Sales Dominance. On the third day you get on the phone and talk to people. Clearly, this woman is petrified. And you know what, she’s doing it anyway – underneath the table. Fuck. It.

I used to be afraid of the excuses I’d hear from other people. Sometimes they would stop me dead in my tracks like a deer in headlights. I didn’t want to be pushy or step over boundaries. I care, I mean, I really care and I have pure intentions. And…that’s bullshit. Because monuments weren’t built on a foundation of excuses. Cities and empires weren’t created with evasiveness bricks. Do you know why I was afraid of the dodging? Because I was frightened of my own inner circumvention. As within, so without. Perhaps I am done with the avoidance of others because I am done trying to escape from myself (my own inherent power). Interesting how this works. I had no idea it was all so connected. 

In order to get something you’ve never had you are going to have to do something you’ve never done. There is a lifestyle/experience that you desperately want. In fact, you have been praying and calling it forth from the universe. And when it shows up, do you accept or do you hide? Do you break out your rolodex of ego alibis or do you say, “In this moment I am unsure of how I am going to do this and I am still doing this, period.” Do you trust your own potential, capacity, and strength? Do you believe in yourself as your biggest, number one fan? 

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." -Goethe

Did you know that many people who sign up for mentoring, coaching, and training, etc don’t have the money? They put a deposit down and then work their asses off to make the money. They don’t even know how they will pay for the flight and hotel room. And somehow, it works itself out. The people you admire, trust me - they felt the fear and did it anyway. 

Diamonds and Pearls are created under pressure. Have I bought coaching without actually knowing the full how of payment? Absolutely. Have I moved to a place without having a home and not even knowing anyone in town? Yes. I have stretched myself in so many ways such as these. I once tried exotic dancing at one of the top clubs in Vegas without knowing what the hell I was doing. Zero experience. I also did a youtube video where I give intimate details about my vagina. That video went on to have 30k views (yoni eggs). I’m glad I did these things and I love me some risk taking! Every time I told myself, “I’ll figure it out.” And, I did. Was it challenging and uncomfortable at times? Sure. It was also invaluable to my growth.  

Will you feel the fear and do it anyway?

Will you do it scared and terrified? 

Will you risk looking like a fish out of water? 

We (Team China Brooks) are here for you. Some days you might find me under the table, slightly trembling, however; you will still find me – Doing. It. 

Cheers to facing ourselves! 

 

On Isolation...

On Isolation...

by China 

 

 

I have a secret to share with you...

I was isolating myself. 

I am a 5/1 Manifestor (Human Design). I often hear people say, “I wish I was a Manifestor. I hope I have a Manifestor child.” 

Like everything else, being a Manifesor comes with perks as well as difficulties. 

The creator of Human Design was a 5/1 Manifestor. Martin Luther King was a 5/1 Manifestor. Manifestors make up 8% of the population and back in the day, they were Royalty – Kings and Queens. George W Bush is a Manifestor. 

Manifestors are the trailblazing initiators – naturally attracting attention and trust - so controlling powers do their best to find a Manifestor to be the face and voice of their personal (and planetary) agendas. 

Manifestors have the power to begin movements, and what we spark takes off. We take things (and systems) that already exist, improve them, build upon them, make them better, and then present them to the public in an appealing way. The Manifestor is a human Ganesh. As in, our aura removes obstacles. 

You will notice that being in the energy of a Manifestor, magic happens for you. And, if you are blessed enough to be close to a Manifestor, the more you vulnerably tell him/her what you prefer (your life vision/desires), you will notice – usually immediately, depending on how much resistance you have - those issues become healed and solved. 

This is the power of the Manifestor. 

I'd be a potent enough Manifestor by itself, however; add on top of that a pure Sadhana practice since age 15 (yoga, meditation, prayer, etc), and you can guess how much my strength has exponentially grown. 

The shitty thing about being a Manifestor is that everybody wants to control us. People want to use us for their own gain, purpose, and (usually) ego fulfillment. 

It's exhausting and most Manifestors on this planet have stopped Manifesting and have gone into hiding due to overwhelm from being completely misunderstood, judged, and “burned at the stake” so to speak. People beg us for help and when we come to give it, we are resisted. It's a “shoot the messenger” sort of thing. I'm not going to lie – that shit is taxing as fuck. Studying (and moving towards the mastery of) energetics has been crucial for my survival. 

I isolated not only because of this, but due to the fact that whatever I would initiate would blow up, which wasn't always a pretty outcome for me (due to the egos involved). 

What's interesting is that all I truly do is document my own healing via film and writing. When I do, people think it's the next trend and fad to follow – that it's the thing that's going to save them. 

Take yoni eggs for example. They were popular, but when I did a video which reached 80k hits (I recently removed the series from my youtube channel) they exploded. Now they are on national television with celebrity endorsement. 

People have no idea about the kind of space I held in order for that culture to take flight in the way that it did. 

Sigh. 

Also, as a 5/1 Manifestor I have infinite creative ideas, which people love to steal. 

Some people may wonder why I don't have more followers. It's in large part because I'd been so busy helping other people bring their dreams and visions to fruition. 

Listen, I LOVE to give. Oh my God, I ADORE IT. It fuels my soul.

My friend Ben Vallery once told someone, “China's so generous that, if you didn't have a heart, she would pull hers out of her chest and give it to you. And when you would mention to her that she didn't have a heart, she would say it's okay, and then die.” 

He's right. 

The thing is though, some people view the gentleness of my power – my kindness, softness, vulnerability, and openness – as weakness to be taken advantage of. Either that or something they want to "own" and "possess".

This makes the Manifestor angry. And so, we stop giving. We shut down and we hide. 

Everyone loses when this happens. This very thing has kept me from making content for you. Isolate rather than create. 

However...

I am an initiating force. And when I do not inform (document), a part of me stagnates. I don't fulfill my purpose and function so after a while I feel dead inside.

It can be a real catch 22. 

Lately I have been thinking a lot about Human Design since I have been studying it for a long time now. I am starting to get really good at it. And so, in my effort to no longer isolate and honor the HD teachers out there, I began to meet up with several of them to see about partnering to SERVE and SUPPORT YOU. 

As I met with different HD teachers in the last months of 2016, I was met with – ahem – ego. I was told many things, one of them being that I “can't” teach human design. As if I'm not “allowed” or something. I was told to "stay in my lane". 

OH!

Did you just tell a Manifesor that she “can't” do something?

Oh. Dear. 

Another thing I saw in 2016 - 

I also had no idea that the coaching industry has some patriarchal, sexist, and misogynistic sides to it. They want you to do well so they can brag about you (as one of their clients), but they don't want you to shine brighter than them and do better than them. (p.s. I am not talking about Strategic Anarchy - to them I bow in reverence - they are the opposite of this.)

But see, most of these coaches of coaches will never understand what's it's like to live as a person of color/ethnicity in this world. They don't really care to understand. They don't try.

Wayne Dyer used to say that he would never use the words, “I am tired.” He mentioned that if he says he's tired then that is what comes true. But you know what, while that's new agey goodness, I don't think that Wayne Dyer ever truly knew about being tired until he got cancer. Because let's be honest; this country is made for – and by – white men like him. So, Wayne didn't really know the kind of tired that a black female 5/1 manifestor, using her entire life and resources to do energy work for the entire planet (to raise consciousness), has felt. 

It's a special kind of exhaustion that you feel in the marrow of your bones and in your soul. 

With all of these people leaving (dying) in 2016, I considered being one of them. Because who's going to advocate for this China Girl/Black Muse, be my Father Figure, and love me til the end of time as we dance in the Purple Rain?!!

However, once again, the universe has other plans for me... 

During the New Years celebration my friends and I were enjoying at a beautiful house in Mt. Shasta, she walked in...

HER.

In all her ethnic glory and splendor – a powerhouse that I helped nourish into the vision of perfection that she is NOW. 

See, she's been my client for years - one of my favorites who I allow closer to me than most. To honor her presence in my life, I invited her to be with us. 

She walked in like the calm eye of LOVE in the center of a storm of 2016 release and 2017 interdependence. 

She came in with bags and boxes of speciality foods she (and her family) had taken days to prepare.

She showed up with spices and handmade potions, oils, and lotions...

teas and exotic drinks she knew I would love. 

She fed my family as if they were her own flesh and blood. 

She sat with me for hours and listened. 

We laughed. We sang. We danced. We planned. We were giddy like the children we are. 

She looked at me with the widest eyes - the compassion of the Divine Mother herself. 

As I watched her play the drums – a completely sovereign, empowered, energized person – she was different than when we first started working together. I stared at her and I thought, “Oh my God, the student surpasses the teacher. And THIS is what I have been working for all this time. This is what I have given my whole life to. This is the result and outcome I have worked so diligently for.” 

Clarity. 

She came and gave the 5/1 Manifestor what it needs – recognition – body, mind, and spirit. 

She honored me as her Teacher, Mentor, Friend, Sister, and most importantly, as her fucking equal. 

No superiority. 

No inferiority. 

I will tell you straight that it's because of her that I come out of isolation and share with you again. 

My 2017 is for her and for my students who treat me this way. 

For you, I will keep giving. 

I came home from a 14 hour drive from Shasta and I sobbed all night until I slept – thinking about your LOVE, my beautiful Priestess. 

You are my JOY. You are my WHY. I live and exist for you. 

I am a 5/1 Manifestor who can initiate entire movements. I am not the Generator who sustains the movement – I am the initial trailblazer. 

What I realized is that I also initiate people. 

2016 was my year of truly – finally – understanding exactly how precious the power of the Manifestor is. 2016 was my year of implementing Divine Discernment. 

2017 is my Year of Action. 

On January 22nd I will announce a new content schedule. On January 21st Selling with Spirit begins. I may only run it once this year. To be kept abreast of the latest in micro content, please follow me on my Instagram page. 

This year I will hit it as hard as I feel to and with zero apology. For those who beg for my help and then call me pushy when I come and offer it – yes, I am pushy. Pushing to initiate you into the brilliance that you truly are. Pushing you to make a fucking choice to take a serious stand FOR yourself. Pushing to initiate myself by serving you. As I help you, I LIVE. When I do not offer support – when I isolate – I die. 

After seeing HER, I have resolved now more than ever to stay the course. But even the Manifestor cannot do it alone. Royalty needs a court. The best I can do is to live out my design type fully – for US. 

2017 is the Year of Interdependence. 

We need you now - come out. And let me help you. Let US help you. 

And so it is. 

Happy 2017.

From Fragmented Black American Female to Sovereign Powerhouse and Why Stepping Up Now Matters...

From Fragmented Black American Female to Sovereign Powerhouse and Why Stepping Up Now Matters...

 by China

 


I know what it’s like to be black and female in America. 

I’m half black (Father) and half white (Mother). My Father’s side of the family descended from slaves. He experienced such extreme racism while working as a law enforcement officer that he was eventually fired from the force for being black. He felt so powerless and angry that he abused me, my two older half-brothers, and my older half-sister. 

My brothers turned their pain outward by trying to take power from others more vulnerable than them. Both have been in prison for several years. 

One murdered his 5-year-old son. I’ll spare you the details. The other raped a 13-year-old girl at the middle school where he coached. My sister has 4 children, all by different fathers and spent most of her life living in the projects in Key West, Florida. 

When I was 5 my Mother took me away from Florida to California to live a different life with my Grandmother. 

Even after being out of that toxic environment, the damage was already done. 

Not only did I inherit chaos patterns in my DNA and cells, but I experienced a ton of blatant, clinically depression causing racism in school. 

Any person who thinks that black people should be “over it” because slavery is no longer happening, is incorrect. 

We may not be physically enslaved, but the psychological torture has been passed down from generation to generation. It continues to this day. 

It took me the majority of my life to unravel, repair, and heal myself from personal, familial, and ancestral trauma. 

I spent my first 29 years not realizing the havoc the subconscious blocks were wreaking on my existence.

When I turned 30 I made a promise to myself that I would become whole again…

or die trying. 

Clearly, I won.

The number one way that I triumphed was through my meditation and spiritual practice (meditation changes brain matter via neuroplasticity). 

I also COMMITTED to BEING GREATER NO MATTER WHAT IT TOOK, PERIOD. 

But the real question was not, “Will I die for it?”

The real question was, “Will I LIVE for it?”

Will YOU live for it? 

Yes, changing was one of the hardest things I have ever done. 

But you know what I am now? 

Unfuckwitable. 

Formidable.

Powerful. Beyond. Measure. 

I am myself, 100%. And I live my life aligned with my soul. 

The number one radical act that any of us can take is to get over our own self-limiting bullshit. Stop indulging in depression. Join together as communities and become sovereign. Help each other. Align with your Great Work. Allow yourself prosperity consciousness. 

Receive it. 

Accept it. 

Be bigger. 

Utilize what you have created to build systems that bust the system. 

Step into your own inherent power. 

Now. 

Not 6 months from now. Not 1 year from now. 

Now. 

When you become aligned with your Great Work and purpose, you cannot be manipulated. 

It really is the most revolutionary thing you / we can do. 

The energy that you carry in the world is of the utmost importance right now because you are affecting everyone via entrainment. 

Your facebook page has a vibrational frequency to it that everyone can feel. 

What are you emitting and emanating? 

Are you someone people can go to right now as a soft, safe space or are you perpetuating more fear and anxiety ridden disturbance patterns? 

If you really want to be revolutionary, deactivate the chaos patterns in your body and your psyche. 

Face your fears and take action in the face of them.

This is what my program is truly about – at the heart, soul, and core of it…

Sovereign Authentic Freedom.

Because when you are that, you can’t be controlled…

And that is what they truly fear.

Your timelines are going to be flooded and you have to decide who you are going to be right now. 

What kind of space are you going to hold? 

We need you now more than ever to step up, show up, and shine. 

Step out of the old stories. This is not the time to be indulging in and fighting for your pain points. 

This is the time to rise up into your strengths – into your divine birthright and inheritance. 

Leave a comment. 

Message me.

Take my hand. 

(p.s. Yes, that's a black fist pick in my hair)

40th Birthday Lessons

40th Birthday Lessons 

by China
May 2016

 

 

This is the last week of my 40th birthday month. It’s been epic (and I don’t use this word lightly). 

Today I had to pause and go deep within to reflect on what I have accomplished. I am truly living my dream, which is to be connected to my Great Work (thank you L & G). I have found my authentic sovereign self – my unique essence. While I am still unpacking the energetic presents I have been given (holy wow), most of it has fully grounded and rooted in my physical, tangible reality. My life is currently exactly the way I created it to be. I am enthusiastic about this because...progress. After all the wins I’ve had (more to come!), this is what I have learned in the last 40 years:


1. Humility

Get some. Equality for all (no inferior or superior). All humans are royalty, period. I will always be learning – from everyone, everywhere. The second I think, “I’ve got it,” is the moment that I don’t. Stay curious, open, humble, and vulnerable enough to say, “I don’t know.” Give the respect I’d like to receive. 


2. Ask

Ask for support. Ask in prayer. Demand my Team of Light. Ask for greater. Ask for better. Ask for systems. Ask for solutions. Ask for it all with courageous honesty. Ask from a place of appreciation for that which already is...


3. Appreciation / Gratitude

Appreciation truly is the currency of the Universe. Things will always refine and improve. Increased magic will happen. People, places, and synchronous things will manifest. The gold is in the NOW. Stopping to appreciate all the gifts that have already appeared so lusciously at my feet is like pausing to smell an intoxicatingly fragrant rose. It’s a part of life to be savored, just as important as all the DOING. Taking a moment to let the good soak the fuck in is a huge, crucial, and energizing part of the process. 


4. It’s All Okay

Come as I AM. It’s all okay. No one really has it more figured out than I do. Well, sometimes they may have things more organized and functional, however; *everyone* has areas and things that they are still working on and improving. No one is exempt from human emotion and the human condition. And no one gets out of here alive. 


5. Oh God you are so magnificent! Oh God you are so magnificent! Oh God you are so magnificent!

(I really want this to be my next tattoo.) Through this source all things are manifested. This is the all-giving, ever-prosperous supply of heaven on earth and life everlasting. This force wants to be loved, too. It loves attention. Nourish my relationship with that Almighty Power. Gift it the adoring, devoted focus it deserves and it pours me out tremendous blessings - every. single. time.


6. Invest

Invest in myself. The ROI is massive. The more I put in, the more I get out. 

Life is incredible.
