Abundance: Why You Should Be Careful What You Ask For

This is NOT an early Thanksgiving post, but it should serve as a word of caution about constantly asking, affirming or praying for “abundance.”

Abundance is fine, but what about higher vibration states like “love” and “appreciation?”

Ah…but we are humans, so we generally can’t help becoming overly focused on the accumulation of material things.

Always wanting more…

and more…

and more.

Which ties nicely into our relentless quest for abundance.

Trust me when I tell you that it is a relentless quest, indeed.

Don’t believe me?

Go google the word “abundance” and see what happens.

Hell, I’ll do it for you.

Yeah so…….. 296,000,000 results!

Looks like a lot of people are talking about abundance because they know that a lot of people are interested in the topic.

But…

I would argue that many of us aren’t even capable of recognizing abundance.

In fact, there are people, especially in the United States, who are blindly swimming in abundance–totally unaware.

No shade, I’ve been guilty of diving into that lake myself.

Therein lies a major problem.

I know this lady who was raised in a very depraved environment.  She, her mother and her siblings were treated as if they were the private property of her ‘father.’

This young lady had been worked, raped and nearly beaten to death.  She was not allowed to go to school so she never learned to read.

Throughout her teen years, her ‘father,’ who had been her main abuser, gave his friends permission to violate her in any number of ways.  As a result, she gave birth to six children; each with a different man. Her father sent several of the children away because he said that it wasn’t his responsibility to feed them.

Sadly, the young lady was never told of their whereabouts. Before long, she and her remaining children suffered the same fate.

This young lady, who had nothing but the clothes on her back and three children in tow, did…

Self-Love Series: A Tribal Investment by Lady G

Please check out this post that my good friend Dr. K. E. Garland asked me to write for her blog’s “Self-Love” series.

Many of you may already know Dr. Garland as the author of The Unhappy Wife.

Well, in addition to that, she is also the Editor of Daddy, an anthology which includes stories written by women about their relationships with their fathers.  Tikeetha Thomas, a well-known blogger on WP is featured in Daddy.

Both of these ladies are fierce in this writing game and I encourage you to check them out, if you haven’t already.

Also, be sure to catch the latest edition of the “Self Love” series as it is written by my dear sister, Michelle, who is also the very talented author of a love poem that I recently read on this blog entitled, “Present Distance.”

You can find Michelle here.

Seriously, check her out! I can assure you that you will NOT be disappointed.

I hope you enjoy my piece.  Let’s discuss it in comments 🙂

PS:  I will continue the poetry readings through Valentines Day.  That said, you will not want to miss my reading of one of the baddest poets on WP, Braeden Michaels!

Love and Light,

LadyG 😘💋💋

 

Love Poems Read By Lady G: Present Distance

IMG_3428

Please enjoy this “fearlessly authentic” piece written by one of my dear sisters, Michelle.

 Present Distance

I have learned not to tell him my frustrations with loneliness

I am learning to keep singed pieces of my heart unheard

I am learning to miss him while letting parts of me leave

My pain is not due to him not being here, being present

My pain intensifies in waves of want…of what has not happened

What if I am not able to love him—here; In this space?

What if I am not able to love him in these orchestrated phases of time

Brown skin to Brown Skin, lips curving to meet,

Tongues enveloping touch, taste, texture and sound….

There is no meeting of the minds —He has yet to hear my heart

I’ve longed for the moments he is totally mine and

Yet yearn for the time our hearts will meet….

Presently Distanced

Have Lady G Read YOUR Love Poem!

love-you-2198772_1280.png

Most of you guys know me by way of ALL OF the words that I string together on this blog.

However, I have often been told that I have a very nice speaking voice.

In fact, my blogging wonder twin, T Wayne, at A Joyful Process once described my voice as dulcet toned.

YAAASSS baby!

I’ve also gotten similar comments about my voice from my “sisters” Michelle at Me, Intimately worded and Dr. K.E. Garland at Kwoted.

Don’t believe me?

Dulcet tones?

Muhahahaha!

Boy have I got them fooled 🙂

Anyway…

If you enjoy writing poetry, why not collaborate with me to celebrate the 2019 Valentine’s season by submitting one of your poems for me to read, record and post right here!

To make it happen, simply e-mail your name, poem and blog information to me at ladygflow1@gmail.com by January 30, 2019 5:00pm EST.

Of course, I reserve the editorial right to decline poems that are not aligned with the flow of this blog….which actually gives most sane folks a whole lot of leeway!

So basically, as long as it is not violent, crazy or just plain jibberish..YOU’RE IN!

LOL!

At any rate, please rest assured that if your poem is selected, it will be properly credited and I will most definitely direct readers back to you!

In return, I ask that you link your readers to this blog so that they can hear your masterpiece come to life!
