Inner Voice

Standard

Spirit is and has constantly been there for me. Spirit has never let me down and that is so amazing to me. And it is so astonishing because although that I have tremendous faith in what I know and believe still I never take anything for granted and I think that is why I continue to be carried so securely by spirit.

The celestial support that I unceasingly receive is very touching and so much appreciated and it is also additionally grounding. I naturally and genuinely treasure what is surrounding me and as I am in harmony and in balance with the quintessence of my existence, the alignment of my dimensional position within the universe that is in relation to inclination, I thrive.

The peace that is around me is so wonderful.

I was always a positive individual that exuded positive energy and I always knew what was going to work for me and what wasn’t going to work out from a very early age because I always had a very strong sense of self. And as my energy was always good it was always the negative energies of others that would constantly interfere.

Just the simple condition of not being within the presence of certain types of people (especially undesirables) is so rejuvenating and liberating, and oh so very healthy for the mind, aura and spirit. That circumstance has consistently been a major factor to my happiness and well-being as a highly spiritual individual.

Everything is so clear, clean, and beautiful living in the compatible arrangement of my own preordained nature. A nature of authentic serenity that some of us are blessed with when we continue to choose and remain on the paths that are correct for us.

When we hear and listen to that inner voice of spirit it never guides us in the wrong direction we become one within distinction and within the truths of our lives and where we’re going.

Spirit helps us to make important decisions, gives us the confidence and courage to take risks and to make the most vital of changes that prove to all turn out for the better and I am a living testimony!

Love is so durable and I feel it all around me and I just love the love. Love makes us strong, love makes us powerful, and love makes us who we are! Love is not corny yet it is often underestimated and it is why spirit has us within the first place.

Without the love, care, and protection of the specific energies around those of us in particular we’d be lost and alone as long as we have the loves of the light we will prevail.

Another New Year

Standard

What’s in the cards for the New Year?

I can see the goodness that many of us with “open eyes” hope and call out for as the energy of the 2017 eclipse has already made some rapid positive changes and I am sure that I’m not the only one at all to have recognized these special events as they shall enter strongly and variously into the year 2018.

I’ve been busy with constant work not too much time for anything else but here and there time to rest and relax. Although I don’t traditionally celebrate Christmas I had a wonderful holiday weekend last week that I really enjoyed.

I look forward to continuing to live peacefully, healthily and spiritually within my own personal journey and I’ve been quite lucky and feeling very blessed good things continue to happen to us good people regardless of the evil that lurks within the world we’ll remain protected an unaffected as long as we believe and stay true to our own celestial nature.

On my way out to shop yesterday I checked my mailbox and received a nice letter from my place of work I guess the preview to the beginning of my New Year is making it’s entrance already!

A Family Affair

Standard

I have two more sets each of census  records (again of my mother’s mother side of the family) both listed from 1-80 as there are 1-35 pages (too many to post I’d be here all day that I gathered from Ancestry.com) each of family members that were recorded back in the year of 1940 (many family that are known to us and some that are not because we never met everybody within our lineage) and it is not a constantly repeated list of the same relatives they’re a list of different blood related people branched from the roots of our extremely large family tree there were literally thousands of us! There may be millions now with all of the possible children, grand, and great-grand children and so on.

It is so nice to communicate with our loved ones especially when we’re not even expecting it, they come at times to encourage, enlighten, acknowledge, inspire and protect.

I just had a dream the night before of one of my elder female relatives that came to give me a message of confirmation regarding how my aunt “Tina” Ernestine Lawrence was the one that originally initiated slander against my mother from the beginning years ago and how no one else within the family (on Catherine’s side of the family) had ever set out or even thought about doing anything of that nature as everyone of our other good relatives had nothing against my mother or any negative thoughts or intentions toward her we were just a normal regular family and it had made no sense. My mother knew that though, that it was all Tina from the get go and that other family had no part of that disgust. Tina was always an undesirable that was never well acquainted with the family she never even knew who most of the relatives were!

She was warm and completely honest in her connection with me as a reminder of how they all stick together (our unit) and how they’ll always have my back.

My elder relative just wanted me to know the truth in details-as they share with me so often concerning different circumstances and situations- out of love and benevolence because they are proud that I am naturally and genuinely carrying the torch for our family, a burning flame of authenticity and loyalty from through out the generations of those of us that are and that were innately set apart.

Second set of 1-40 of my relatives.

Second set of Census Records 41-80 of my relatives.

Third set of Census Records of 1-40 more of my relatives.

Third set of Census Records of 41-to 80 more of my family members.

I moved to Virginia Beach in 29 June last year 2016 from Chicago.💞🖖☯️

You said 3 months ago

Hello,

The last time I visited Virginia it was just passing through in the year 2001 as I was heading down to South Carolina with my father’s sister to meet some of their relatives in person during the Christmas holiday. Before then, in the year 1996 Virginia was one of the state’s that I traveled to with a family associate who had a job delivering shipments to different locations on those tractor trailers.

We ate down there at a fast food restaurant and the food tasted even fresher compared to New York where I am from. Virginia even looked so much cleaner than New York as did the other states we had visited. But Virginia has a special place in my heart because that’s where my family came from and they were all over from Halifax, Danville, Richmond to Chesapeake.

I at one time thought about maybe one day moving down there after I eventually retire but I am a native New Yorker and so use to the city I don’t ever want to leave New York.

Thank you for sharing I hope you’re enjoying your life down there. Maybe one day I’ll get to visit some of my distant relatives as most of my closest and most immediate ones have passed on now.

So she’s the latest added to my collection of lovely dolls.

Us Taurus Folk Are The Bomb! We Rock!!!

Standard

As a person born under the zodiac sign of the Bull I can attest that this Taurus write up is so darn true! 100% the truth, and I’ve always been proud to be born a genuine Taurean. My mother is a Taurus too. I was born in May and she was born in April.

This is dedicated to all of us that are real to the core within our natural identifications as true Taurus people.

I was told by a psychic once that many caul children are born under this sign Taurus.

Top 12 Reasons Why Taurus Is The Best Zodiac Sign

 

(https://zodiacthing.com/blogs/taurus/top-12-reasons-why-taurus-is-the-best-zodiac-sign)

People who are born under the Taurus sign are often labelled as many things ranging from short tempered through to downright aggressive. However there’s a lot more to the Taurus personality than just being a hot head all of the time and they possess many unique and distinctive traits and characteristics that many have no idea about. So to give you a better sense of what it really means to be born under the sign of the Bull, lets dive into the Taurus personality by revealing 12 unique characteristics, to know why TAURUS is actually the best zodiac sign of all.

Reason #1: Taurus is independent, and incredibly self-reliant.

Taurus are independent and strong at all levels – physically, emotionally, and financially. They like to do things their way. They are perfectly fine on being alone, this way things get done they way they want them to be done and certainly aren’t afraid to take on a new project or lead others. Taurus is not a follower, but they are not the brave one either. They often prefer to work on their own rather than in a group. Taurus are independent enough to make their own decisions without getting back to you for an opinion. They don’t go around looking for sympathy from others. They don’t look to others for support. If things don’t go right and life throws them lemons, they ‘make lemonade.’

Taurus are proud of their ability to get shit done for themselves without having to rely on the charity of others. They believe in creating their own future rather than simply leaving it up to fate or chance. They are self starters and go-getters, they prefer to make their own luck.
Reason #2: Taurus are powerfully resilient. Even when they get knocked down, they don’t let anything KEEP them down for long. They can get through anything!

The gift of the Taurean is resilience, fixity and endurance. Taureans are often accused of being too fixed in their opinions and too slow to embrace change or mental motivation, but their insights have settled slowly, taking time to mature, and thus carry a strength of permanence that is resistant to superficial movement. The Taurus is extremely tough and resilient and able to get back up no matter how many times they fall over in life. A Taurus is the most resilient person in the world who is forever ready to take challenges in spite of all the pressures build up. Giving up is not a Taurus thing. They’re also often a ‘rock’ in their family and a source of strength for their loved ones. In relationships, Taurus will stay put through heaven and hell. They don’t give up easily and will work hard to keep their love alive. Stubborn Taurus never gives up and always holds their ground – even when they’re wrong, which sometimes drives people crazy.
Reason #3: Taurus is a REALIST who deals in FACTS.

Taurus stay with both feet in the ground, do not fly in the air and dream about sand castles. They aim for exact and real things. They are firmly grounded in reality and prefer to look at things objectively focusing on facts not fiction. They are keen-witted and practical more often than intellectual, but apt to become fixed and stick in their opinions through their preference for following accepted and reliable patterns of experience. They are tactful in choosing anything for themselves be it work, relationships or clothes. They want everything which is good, they strive to get it and eventually they acquire it, without much effort.

They’re sensible-minded and don’t start pointless drama. The Taurus is generally pretty cool-headed and calm and chill about things most of the time. Taurus tries not to get too caught up in petty drama and meaningless gossip. They prefer to focus on the things that are most important including their friends, family and chasing their dreams! If a situation seems like it getting too headed they’ll try to take some space rather then get involved in trivial fights.
Reason #4: They’re one of the most honest signs in the zodiac.

One of the most refreshing things about a Taurus is that they will tell you exactly how they feel about you to your face. Taurus is honest, truthful in life and good for their word. Taurus doesn’t like to play games and they tend to be very direct and honest with people. To some they can sometimes come off as a bit blunt but those closest to Taurus respect and appreciate their honesty and straight forward approach. You always know where you stand with a Taurus and they’re not the type to be ‘two faced’ or manipulative.
Reason #5: Taurus is loyal til the very end to those who have earned their trust.

Taurus can’t love someone until they can trust them first.
Before Taurus will give you their heart you’ll have to gain their trust first. It can take a while to truly earn the trust and loyalty of a Taurus but once you do you can consider them to be an ally for life. The Taurus sign is widely considered to be one of the most loyal in all of the zodiac and it’s for this reason that many trust them with their inner most secrets. They are clever in a sense that they choose their friends wisely. They will let others get close to them, but only so close as they want them to. They never share their weaknesses or secrets with anybody as they always want to appear strong and respectable in their social circle.

Taurus would do just about anything for their loved ones.
Taurus is the most loyal sign, so they value meaningful relationships of mutual respect and love. They love to see their friends and family happy and will move mountains to make sure that this is the case. There is nothing stronger than Taurus’ loyalty. No matter how the table turns, they will not be swayed to change their sincere feelings about you. If they love you, it’s usually forever. They will tolerate the absolute worst for love. They are calm, but only until over-tested. A Taurus may not get to see you on a regular basis, but they have your back regardless. Their loyalty survives long-distance relationships, and their capacity for love is long-lasting and mighty.
Reason #6: Taurus has a sixth sense for detecting bullshit and can sniff you out if you’re being ‘fake’.

The Taurus has a powerful ability to sniff out bullshit, liars and anyone that’s being ‘fake’. Since they are honest with you they expect the same courtesy in return, if you’re fake with them they’ll have no time for you.
Reason #7: Taurus is focused, determined and knows how to HUSTLE.

Taurus, like all the fixed signs, has a strong will and great determination. Once Once a Taurus sets his/her mind to doing something, there is nothing in the galaxy that can stop them. They will pursue their identified goal until it is reached – even if this comes at great personal sacrifice. Taurus is a worker. International Worker’s Day was established in the U.S. on May 1, 1886 while Neptune was moving through Taurus. They’re ambitious and hard working. The Taurus personality doesn’t believe in relying on ‘luck’ to get what you want in life. Instead they believe in careful planning, fierce determination and being willing to execute something right through til completion. Never underestimate the abilities of a Taurus who has set their sights on a goal… Taurus hustle very hard for things they want. Their fierce determination combined with a relentless work ethic allows them to achieve big and make it to the top!
Reason #8: Taurus is reliable and the one that you want to have around when the shit hits the fan.

Sometimes you just need that one ultra dependable and reliable friend that you always know that you can count on no matter what. And for many people the Taurus is just that. Taurus make great friends and employees because when they tell you they will do something you can count on them doing whatever it is they say they will do. Taurus is considered to be one of the most reliable Zodiac signs. Not only is the Taurus reliable they are and you will never be let down by a Taurus. They’ll never disappear just because things get a bit rough and they will often swoop in to save the day when they see their loved ones in trouble. No matter what you’re going through, they won’t leave your side. They have a protective nature, which can sometimes be a bit possessive, but if you’ve been taken under their wing, you’ve got someone looking out for you for life.
Reason #9: Taurus is often called upon for advice because they are FULL of common sense.

The Taurus is well known for their practical mind and it’s for this reason that they often find themselves being called upon by friends and loved ones who are in need of a second opinion or just some damn good advice. When problems arise you can count on Taurus to give you a healthy dose of common sense. Taurus are very, very patient. They will sit and listen to you rant for hours without getting offended or annoyed. They have the patience that is needed to guide others in the right direction, especially for those who are very lost and confused. Taurus is also good at solving problems, at stripping down to basics and the then recognizing where the priorities lie. Value is important, and Taurus has an innate sense of quality.
Reason #10: They set high standards and have a taste for the finer things in life.

Taurus set extremely high standards for themselves and become viciously self contemptuous when they fail to meet them. They try to keep their emotions in tight control, but months of suppressing negative feelings eventually erupts in a Taurean outburst. Taurus do not accept mediocre in their life. They are always looking to experience the very best of things. They aren’t overly flashy but are big on quality and they are willing to work hard to ensure they can live comfortably.

Taurus strives for comfort and the good life. Taurus engenders art, luxury, finances and valuables. Taurus is all about the pleasures and sensuality of life. If there’s one way to impress a Taurus, it’s by appealing to his or her five senses. From being surrounded by the sublime beauty of a waterfall, to indulging in fine cuisine or being wrapped in a luxurious fleece blanket, Taurus enjoy their creature comforts and the beauty surrounding them. Taurus knows how to pamper themselves and they often have a taste for the finer things in life. They are full of grand plans to make it big and live the good life. They are the sign that tries to keep things simple, and that includes their hobbies and recreational activities.
Reason #11. Taurus WON’T take shit and if you attack them they will fire back HARD.

Taurus will not take any crap from anyone. They are allergic to stupidity. Since honesty is such a big trait of the Taurus it’s also something that look for in others… and if you’re lying they can almost always tell. Taurus hates arrogant assholes that think they know everything but they just contradict themselves. Taureans are inherently placid, so it is rare for them to lose their temper and display anger and aggression. When they do, fearful as they become, they lose touch with their true strength and display their vulnerability.

Taurus has a stubborn side that doesn’t back down easily.
Taurus can be a stubborn creature at times especially when they truly believe that they are in the right. They are strong minded individuals with firm convictions and when they’re convinced of something it can take a lot for them to change their mind. It’s only when the Taurus is provoked that their aggressive side tends to come out but when it does… well lets just say you’re not going to want to be on the receiving end of it. Like the bull that represents the Taurus their rage can be enormous and when they are attacked they tend to fire back twice as hard and without hesitation.
Reason #12: Taurus are classy and the best people to have in your life.

You will most likely find Taurus have a unique style about them whether they are dressing for a high-profile meeting or just slacking in the house. Taurus woman is classy, tasteful and practical. She prefers powerful statement clothes such as earthy tailor made suits, designer accessories and tasteful shoes that will rarely go out of style. Taurus men are classy and sophisticated and you don’t have to impress them with extra make-up. They will like you the way you are. That been said, you can put on truckload of makeup, show up shabby or just be your natural self.

Taurus are very patience; they don’t run behind success. They take one step at a time and patiently work towards their goal. They are great listeners. It comes in handy to them in their love life. A Taurus partner is a partner for life. Dependable, reliable and solid they will be loyal and faithful. They are also generous and will shower their loved one with many gifts and luxuries. If you need sound financial advice, you are safe in the hands of the Taurus woman. She is practical and calculating hence; she rarely makes hasty financial decisions. Taurus make the best friends. They’re supportive, genuine and a whole load of fun. They’re not afraid to call you out on whatever it is you’re up to and will always be the wake up call you needed. They accept you for who you are. They won’t judge you for the mistakes or choices you’ve made. Above all, they will make you laugh. Being the free souls they are, they have a spark about them that makes them the most enjoyable company to be around. Although their sarcasm can sometimes be annoying, they’ll always be the ones cracking the jokes. Taurus is the best people to have in your life.

Kin Folk (My Lovely Family)

Standard

I love my mother’s side of the family people like them don’t come around so often. I am so proud of them, to be related to them, and that I am of them and that they are of me as we all have our own unique identities that also draws within us our connection.

Knowing where you come from is so very important and interesting. And as a person of the caul it has by nature been detrimental that I not interact with certain types of individuals and things as they are not of my specific essence.

All of my good relatives outweigh the very few that I partially grew up with within my home that had resulted from the union of my grandmother (Catherine) and grandfather (Willie Sr).

My mother’s mother Catherine came from an extremely large family that originated in Virginia. They were very tight and close-knit just the way a real family should be they were good people and would always keep in contact with her when she moved to New York. I remember how they would regularly call her on the phone.

Some of her relatives eventually moved up from Virginia to all places such as parts of New Jersey and other states and boroughs of New York as well.

Census Records
1-40 of the members of my family

When My mother was a little girl her and her siblings would go down south and visit their grandmother and grandfather (Catherine’s parents) on the farm that they owned and where they would produce and sell their very own goods/products. My mother had two aunts and four uncles altogether and all members of the family cooperated and played a significant part in making the family business a success.

My great grandmother (Catherine’s mother) use to make homemade soaps and foods and etc…I have other relatives that owned their own funeral home that was still doing business in the 1980’s I don’t know if some of them expanded or still have the same business running currently.

On the farm our family had lots of animals including dogs. They had cows that my mother would milk, horses, mules, pigs, chickens-one of the mules had kicked my young uncle in the head once.

My mother had a lot of fun down there and was shown and given much love just as she did with me. I always had love and security around me that contribute to the strong person that I am today my real family from Virginia all stuck together and there were and still are many of us.

Even though many have passed on they are definitely not forgotten and their being deceased makes them no less of relevant to me as opposed to those that are actually living. They continue to be here with me in spirit and one would be a fool to fuck with me with all of the ancestors that I have lingering around loving and protecting me and my loved ones.

Census Records
41-80 members also included in my family

As I have communicated with them and gotten to also know them on another level “home is truly where the heart is” and no one can break that bond. Our love is a house homed by our energy.

One day as time went by Catherine just didn’t have time for her family anymore as she was more preoccupied with hanging out with the neighborhood trash within the area we weren’t even suppose to be living in that area she was originally set to move into a corner two family home over in another part of queens. She didn’t want to know her family again until she got ill from having a stroke back in the early 1980’s.

How could she forget where she came from to go down to the lowest forms of disgust?

I could and would never be so inauthentic and disloyal to my nature to be turned around when tested by negativity.

Nevertheless, here and there runts do run through our family trees that is why it is so important to not intermix genetically with certain lines of individuals even though what may have been done before our time we to certain extents have no control over.

I found a census that dates back to 1940 recorded of eighty members of my family, there are so many more of them not listed, however, a cousin of mine that is on the list acknowledged how my grandparents had another house other than the one that my mother and her siblings use to visit a bigger and beautiful home that they shared when she’d visit. Wow, I just can’t get over how much family we have and my mother remembers a lot of them I even remember some!
