Welcome to the New Age

The biggest understatement of the century has to be this all knowing phrase, ‘the world is changing’.

If you didn’t believe it now, the past five years should have shown you that’s exactly what is happening.


Everything you thought you knew is being dismantled before your very eyes.

Questioning what you believe and know is simply apart of your everyday. Whilst the loud repetitive world mantras of low resolution thinking keep you from broadening your mind, your perception of what is, continues to evolve.

Do you know why?

Well, lets say it together, the world around you is changing, evolving, shedding of an old way which is no longer serving the interest of the planet or humanity.

We are on our way to a great reckoning between old power structures thriving off separation and the structureless power who want equality. The dismantling of poverty and mass deprivation of resources from all life on the planet will become a priority.

You can’t constantly take from every species on the planet, burn down natural resources and create chaos and think that no form of karmic energy will come back to you. Lets not be silly, we are all responsible for what has taken place on this planet. Our cars, our out of control consumerism, greed and habit of discarding what we cant control.

The planet needs a harmonious humanity to solve some of its biggest problems. This cannot suffice if we continue to label, separate and broaden the gap of understanding and respect between species. There should be a common goal a common direction and at the moment we are still in the phase of waking up.

Like, what if I told you that your body is nothing but a vessel. That every experience you have had on this planet thus far are purposeful and intentional experiences that you came to this planet to learn?

Beyond you is a higher you, a you which is connected to all. Source, Life, Plants, nature, animals?

This level of evolving and thinking is taking us to a place of harmony. Although it may feel like chaos now, it is all happening for the greater betterment of our planet so we can understand our mission, our true soul purpose our calling if you will. There is no denying that this planetary revolution is affecting every species, including the most powerful of them all. Humanity.

But do you know how lucky you are to be in this moment where anything is well and truly possible and despite who you think is in charge, the only person who is truly in charge of your destiny is you?

You can create, fulfil, learn or live out any fantasy or dream that you have had in this moment. Anything you have been putting off or have been afraid of is within your grasp right now in this moment. You cant ignore it. Any urge or pull that is taking you in a new direction, stop putting it off because this is the moment for you to try!

In this time there will be many inventions, innovations, creatives, scholors, philosphers who will come forward to broaden your perspective and educate you on what is possible beyond your limitations.

One thing I have been learning is that everything I wanted before I already had. Within, I have all of the gifts and talents to create the life I want. But living in this physical plane has attached me to culture. This concept that associates me to the physical world be it beauty, race, class, history.  This cultural concept creates an ideology that everything I need is outside of myself.

I’m sorry to tell you but culture has you fooled. It’s not a way to help bring together, it actually separates people into groups based on external features and a history which in many ways can be traumatic or the source of our ignorance.

This concept is repeated from generation to generation and creates this limited way of living and being. Such is the saying, ‘these people don’t do this or these people do that’.

A Culture based on history doesn’t evolve. It stays stuck in the past.

The answers which lie internally will help you evolve. That growing awareness of your inner awareness is a sign of you finding this connection to who you truly are; beyond who you identify as externally is the divine you, connected to source energy.

Now hold on, don’t start to become hostile. By source energy, I mean what you call God, Universe, Source, whatever you want to call this energy source to which we share with the rest of the species on the planet (which has been scientifically proven).

For arguments sake, I will say God/Source.

But as I was saying, many have heard, God/Source has created man in his likeness and throughout every religion and spiritual practice has a way of bringing people inward in search of him. Sitting in prayer, meditation, internally connecting to him/it. Its an individual ritual bringing one inward, shutting out the external world to deepen this connection.

But what man has done over time has conceptualized this notion of connecting to your inner being and made it digestible for the world to comprehend. A world which can only comprehend what it can see, something tangible, external. This made people reject that which they can’t see as a limiting construct.

This New Age we have stepped into has truly got people questioning everything, but instead of being sat confused and letting life happen to you, you have all the information at your fingertips.

We are repeating a cycle the earth goes through every new era, this is nothing new. Your questioning of everything is therefore not weird or strange, its actually a result of the planet evolving and you with it. What it asks of you is instead of trying to externally escape the changes you see, dive inwards. Be open and information and answers will come to you. Shut yourself away from external influences which tell you what is, if internally you know this is not your truth.

Be still, be silent, align with who you truly are and follow your calling. This will lead you to inner knowing, inner happiness.

This time we are in will continue to get interesting, but if you are playing the role you came here to play, you will effortlessly flow with this change.

A message to the Bigots in the comment section

Dear Bigot in the comment section,

Black history month this year is about celebration, a time to mourn, a time to look back and reflect on our past.

It’s a month for us to celebrate on our own terms and not the terms dictated by company diversity policies or the government.

Our stories are not there to make you feel uncomfortable, our stories are not there to divide or create racial tensions, our stories are there for people to understand the world through our eyes. For a few minutes of the day through an article or book, you get to understand our experiences and the battles we have fought silently through every corporation and loudly after every act of violence on us, whilst you could comfortably turn a blind eye.

But under every article, documentary, interview or film sharing the black experience in the UK, I see a comment section of denial from you, rejection and straight up bigotry.

How dare you dismiss our pain, our feelings, our lived experience, because you are not elevated enough to comprehend a different perspective from your own.

The black experience is a human experience which deserves to be documented.

Yet you choose to reject it because you don’t understand it. Your bigoted comments create chaos to disrupt moments of valuable teaching; diminishing the existence of injustice and blaming oppression on the oppressed because it fails to fit into your world of logic.

I have been living my whole life through your Eurocentric lense, seeing depictions of myself as violent, aggressive, uneducated. I’ve watched my history be reduced down to slavery and subservience because it fits into a narrative which makes sense in your world. Yet, I dealt with this falsification by choosing to work harder to exceed the low expectations society had of me.

I was always taught that your skin doesn’t determine what type of person you are, but it determines the way people treat you.

So why when we are trying to share these lived experiences to educate, bring awareness and help others who have dealt with the same issues, not to feel so alone, why do you seek to destroy this progress?

We do not want to make you feel guilty, and your guilt can only be a reflection of your own internal battles.

Despite the wrongs of your ancestors past, I as a black women can still accept you in the present as an individual, tied only to your present actions and words, why can I not be treated the same or even speak out about my mistreatment?

I don’t have a chip on my shoulder, I actually walk through life giving people the benefit of the doubt, naively seeing only the good in them. I work hard to lift the voices of the underrepresented or those who have experienced injustice, as I believe equally their voices matter as much as anyone else’s, but if their experience have anything remotely to do with racism, the window of timing on the issue is so small because you don’t want me to talk about it and my question is, why?

Racism is nothing but a social construct, which means someone is benefitting from its existence and I can tell you now, racists you are not the ones benefitting from this divide.

I do not believe racism will destroy us, but what will destroy us is how we choose to deal with it and heal from it.

Again, racism needs to be an area in which we heal from on both sides. The psychological and the physical effects it can have on either side can be detrimental and whilst we sit fighting over the very skin that connects us all, the world is crumbling beneath us.

God is watching us all be deceived by this illusion of indifference because of our egos and pride. We all need to let go of this illusion of indifference because it is stopping us from understanding one another.

Every group has their own story and no story is more or less important than the other.
