Keeping Your Vibration High Is the Only Defense Against Today’s Offenses – Vibe High Poetrimony and Video

I don’t watch the news regularly. That ended years ago. But I do keep current on what’s going on. My primary approach is to read the post headlines on CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and Aljazeera websites. I also pop in and out of AM talk radio shows. Their discussions are frightening.

But, in spite of these things, I am not addicted to the news. Too much of it will influence my mind, spirit, and vibe. I check headlines because I feel that something is going to give. Every day it seems there’s more dismal news. I just want to be prepared.

The poem and video, Vibe High, is about the best way to be prepared for today’s challenges, raise your vibration. Don’t get caught in the weeds of the daily news. Connect more with your spiritual self for immunity against disaster du jour.

My Tribulations Were My Blessings – How ‘Seeking ‘The Answer Spiritually Transformed Me – Deepak Chopra, Nikki Giovanni & Video Poetrimony On Treasures In Trials

Ashes – Personal Context

I’ve had a pretty memorable life, and I’m not finished yet. I don’t say that lightly. I’ve been successful. I’ve had very tough times. I’ve faced near-death situations and serious health challenges a few times. I’ve been on the top and on the bottom. And I’ve endured through it all quite well, in spirituality and in life-awareness.

That is the backdrop to what the poem and video Ashes is all about. …The poem and video that I present in this post.

Obviously, I use the word ashes figuratively. It represents the ruins that I had to dig through to discern that the transformative journey that I traveled was ultimately a blessing.

I authored this poem years ago and decided to turn it into a video just recently. I wanted to convey the message visually. In the video, I am conveying my life journey, as well as the undoubtedly tough journeys of others, whose lives were transformed by difficult circumstances.

Dharma – Our Duty Is Written In The Cosmos As Law Not As Religion – Elevate Beyond Human Tendencies To Pursue UR Dharma – Through God As U Understand

My Evolving Understanding of Dharma

“We won’t achieve Dharma until we become honorable stewards of the universe, elevating our existence above human weaknesses and tendencies, and aligning ourselves with the divine order of God. 

This is an intimidating task for most people.  But we can only discover our Dharma by actively working to peel away the layers of our own human imperfections first.  For this reason, I believe that achieving one’s Dharma is the ultimate of all personal and spiritual achievements. 

Realizing Dharma is in effect reaching one’s cosmic truth which applies to all religions and spiritual beliefs because it is not religion.  Dharma is a universal truth.  Pursuing one’s Dharma, you get to choose your own God.” – Kevy Michaels

Gratitude – Another Aspect of Holistic Health – If You Are Unhappy & Unhealthy, Try Being More Grateful – In Spirit, Health & In How You’re Living – “The Science” Agrees!

I have these regular spontaneous moments, moments of deep Gratitude. Gratitude hits me deeply in my spirit and it hits me at random. I can never predict when it will happen. It doesn’t matter where I am. And, it has just hit me now, inspiring me to write this post!

Maybe Is The Theme – Maybe My Lessons Are Only For Me – Maybe I’m Having Delusions of Grandeur – Maybe I Should Just Keep It Between God & Me – Maybe Poetrimony

I stumbled on a couple of poems that I originally wrote years ago. One is entitled, ‘Maybe’, the other, ‘Audacious Wisdom’.

In these writings, I am questioning myself, and my purpose through God’s eyes. I wasn’t looking for the poems. I stumbled on them. I literally have close to a thousand or more bodies of work. But recently finding them was right on time for what’s going on in our world and with me, right now.

Recently, I have been again encouraged to author a book, memoir, or screenplay on my story. I really want to, and know that I can, but I haven’t completed several in-progress projects. Though I’ve started many and have created bits and pieces over the years, I’ve never compiled or finalized anything.

I’ve written a great deal, enough for more than just one book, maybe about six! But still, I have not assembled what has been written, never completing the projects. I have started several videos, much the same way. I want to complete them, but often I feel uncertain about doing so. Years ago, I vowed to never venture into anything new without really feeling it in my spirit. I feel these projects in my spirit, but not strong enough yet.

About writing, and about life in general, I have been asking myself, ’Maybe?’ quite often.

Deepak Chopra’s Spiritual Law of Giving & Receiving – It’s 1 Law With 2 Parts – We Have A Hand for Giving & A Hand for Receiving – Use Both Hands to Get the Law Right!

“The universe operates through a dynamic exchange…. Giving and Receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.” – Deepak Chopra – The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

This post is on the Spiritual Law of Giving & Receiving, taken from Deepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, that I read over 20 years ago.

The principles presented in this short book are as dear to me as are the bible’s principles. I have distributed copies of this book to others around the world. I live by all seven of its principles.

My Mother’s 103rd Birthday – 96 Years On Earth + 7 Years In Heaven – Her Influence Still Lingers – Pearls Of Wisdom Bestowed From Serving As Her Caregiver – Caregivers Inherit Virtues & Wisdom

 

Just last week, I celebrated my mother’s 103rd birthday! You may find from prior posts about my mother, that she is ‘my favorite girl in the world’. We were always ultra-close from childhood until her ascension.

Perhaps it was because I was her last child and because my father died 8 months after I was born. I don’t know, but our connection was strong, ride-or-die-strong’, and everyone in my immediate family knew it. She made it clearer than I did.

Caring for my mother for several years was a tumultuous experience emotionally, spiritually, physically, and logistically. We moved together across 3 states, dismantling and reassembling what we would call home, until our final destination in Denver, Colorado. She transitioned several months after our arrival, succumbing to cancer.

Inner Peace – Personally & Poetically – 2 Me – How To Attain Inner Peace – Part 1

I sincerely share this post to proclaim that Inner Peace is the most valuable gift that God has given us. 

In Inner Peace lies Acceptance, Surrender, Trust, Belief, and Patience.  These virtues are beneficial to the body, mind, and spirit.

Inner Peace was not always accessible to me.  At a time when I earned six figures, I stressed my mind and spirit to keep money flowing.  That was over 20 years ago before I became a new man.  Today, friends and colleagues attempt to entice me to return to ‘the game’, to be it in IT, bitcoin investments, small business adventures, or money-making ideas du jour. 

I have no plans to return to that noisy chaotic world again, though.  I fear what money and chasing after it would do to the Inner Peace that I now have.  I never want to lose this.  I have no interest in going viral or monetizing for profit.  Over a year ago, I deleted my Facebook, Linked In, and other social media accounts. 

I do wish to reach more people but to do so, unfortunately, costs money.  So, I reach who I can on my personal but limited budget.  But I do, therefore, maintain my Inner Peace. 

Achieving Inner Peace in the New World Order, in our new post coronavirus world, is essential.  There are many human challenges that can distract us from this gift, and worse can bring out the worse in us. 

I recommend attempting to attain Inner Peace, in your chosen way, as a regular part of your Physical, Spiritual, and Mental Health, especially today.  In this post, I share how I maintain Inner Peace.  Kevy Continue reading “Inner Peace – Personally & Poetically – 2 Me – How To Attain Inner Peace – Part 1”

Fighting Over Momma – But Fam – You Said You Loved Me…Yeah Right

Real Talk On Family Betrayal – Don’t Believe Those Closest To You Won’t Deceive You

This post is deeply personal.

It made me the convicted man that I am today. The experience of solely caring for my mother to the disdainful evil undermining of my siblings, extended family, friends and their cohorts molded me.

It spiritually transformed me.

It revealed to me the existence of fake-faithful and evil in my inner circle. It revealed who I am, and who I’m not.

It taught me that race doesn’t really matter though we’ve built our civilization around this man-made invention.
“Only spirit matters.” ~ Kevy

Caring for my mother in the latter years of her 96 years on earth broke me, then rebuilt me.

Though it nearly killed me, and caused me to lose nearly everything I’d owned, I never relented in my obligation to my mother, and to God.

I created the Seasons As My Teacher blog after years of grieving and regaining my health. In response, I was led to write about how this experience changed me.
Betrayal and deception ultimately became wisdom and discernment. ~ Kevy
“It was like poison that turned to medicine.” – Tina Turner

To exemplify further that I give equal time to the races, I am open to say that the terror that I and my mother experienced was done by Black people.
There is plenty of evil in the Black race, and in my family. …In all races, though perhaps not institutionalized.
Ironically, nearly everyone who came to our aid during my mother and my trials wasn’t Black or family.
Repeatedly, God sent angels to us who were often White or Latino, some that we did not know.

This is a kick-start to old and new posts on Terror on the Caregiver, to be ultimately be retitled to Fighting Over Momma.
It will be presented in a series of posts over time, just as is 7 Days 7+ Quotes, Devirusize, Seven Spiritual Laws, and Poetrimony series.
“Lil Eunice, I still love you….even more.” ~ Kevy

Original Post – July 2018

I was raised Catholic. My mother was devout. As a result, I know a whole lot about the importance of prayer and faith, but not much about the bible.

I can’t recite stories or verses off of the top of my head, like holy rollers.

But that doesn’t bother me. I don’t need a facade of ‘the word‘ to deflect from my true spirit, my true essence.

My sincerity exudes on its own. My spirituality is more organic, gained through life’s trials.

I follow no rules because rules are written in a book. Those rules are written on my heart.

I simply follow the spirit of God within me, and later find that there was a spiritual law for that.

I Am Gifted! – We All Become Gifted By Doing 1 Thing – Accepting That We Are – 50+ Tips On Being Gifted

This is another one of those deep, heartfelt posts.  I hope that you take the time to review it in its entirety.  This is real talk.  If it is not inviting to you, that is fine too.  It is about being gifted.  I Am.  You can be too, by doing one thing.  The gift has already been given to you by The Most High.  Accepting it, and God’s desire for your use of this gift transforms you from merely being a gift recipient into being Gifted.  I Am Gifted.


I’m gifted, I can now say! 

How arrogant, narcissistic, and egotistical you may first say.  But I believe that we all have a spiritual gift.  God has endowed us all with a spiritual gift that cannot be taken away.  It can’t be reversed.  It’s in us all.  It’s like death.   Death is certain.  There’s nothing that can reverse it.  Our endowed gift from God in within us.  Whether we accept it or not, it is still in us.


I know that I’m gifted.  My confidence dwells in my willingness to accept the gift that God has given me.  Proclaiming this is not based on any superior intentions.   Many of us have gifts.  We all have gifts that God has given us all.  It is our dharma, a purpose, a mission.  What makes us gifted, as opposed to just having a gift, is our willingness to acknowledge and accept that gift.

I will share with you some ways that led me to conclude that I am gifted, beyond just accepting god’s will,  whatever it is for me. Continue reading “I Am Gifted! – We All Become Gifted By Doing 1 Thing – Accepting That We Are – 50+ Tips On Being Gifted”

7 Days 7+ Quotes – Integrity – A Value We Impose On Ourselves – It Says Everything About Who We Are – 9 Tips to Help You Strengthen Your Integrity

“Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight.” – Proverbs 12:22

Integrity is one of my most valuable virtues.

Now that I am well on my spiritual journey, maintaining Integrity has become of greater importance in every choice that I make or action I take.

The reason I give Integrity such importance has to do partly with my age and experience.  And, having had many people in my life who were not “of their word”.  …Friends, Family, and Colleagues.

The choices and challenges that I face today are generally not new ones. As they say, ‘This is not my first rodeo’. It seems that most of the choices I face today are ones in which I am already well-experienced. On most challenges to my Integrity, I have made incorrect choices in the past, and am well aware of the consequences of not being true. So, I ensure that I am, no matter what the truth may bear.

It may not be easy for others to make the correct choices, and to be regarded as men or women of their my word.  …Not I!

Aging has also caused me to focus more on a legacy. My legacy is important to me. The reason it is of such importance is that when God comes for me, I want to be able to leave a message, purpose, and inspiration behind for others.

I am very serious about leaving a legacy. My tombstone is already engraved with: ‘His mission on Earth is complete’.

I simply do not see my life today as exclusively dedicated to myself. I do for others in daily deeds, but also for my best virtues to be reflected upon and be useful to others.

My poetry, stories, social media content, and blog posts reflect the legacy that I am creating. I practice what I preach, believe the things I write, eat the foods I recommend, and follow the health regimens that I write about.

SHARE – Feel Good On A Stevie Wonder Vibe! – Dat’s Whazup! – Maybe U Can I See Like Stevie Wonder – I Can, Every Now & Then

“We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.” – Stevie Wonder

This is a Feel-Good post.  I hope that you want to feel better today.  I do.  We need it.  I will try my best with this post. 

The vibration in the atmosphere has been tense.  I believe that the Lord wants us to have more alone time to reflect and reconcile our differences with The World, to perhaps lead us to reconciliation, inner peace, and Love.  I have had to go inward and introspective on a daily to keep my vibe up high.

Today, my vibe is very elevated!  I am looking forward to the new life that begins each day.  I see sleep as dying each night and waking reborn.

But this moment, the new Season just before us, post-Lobster, post-COVID19, post-insurrection, post-everything 2020 is more eagerly anticipated by everyone.  The unknowns and adventure of it all can be absolutely exhilarating, if you are imaginatively creative, and are vibrating higher than most.  I am that way today.  Are you?

I am looking forward to a more discerned and refined me, blossoming in this new Springtime.  For I know that Spring always comes.  Always, period point-blank. 

We are on its horizon.  I listened to Stevie Wonder’s music and watched his videos today, and I feel mighty inspired.  I hope you enjoy it.  Kevy

I am singing about Tomorrow.  Let’s start singing of Love from our hearts.

Poetrimony – Celebrating Guest Blogger/Poet & Front-Line Worker Colorado Poet For Her Talents, Heart & Spirit – Show Love 2 Colorado Poet!

I am excited to feature COLORADO POET in this post, once again.

I regularly invite other bloggers to share their perspectives on any topic.  I invite you, right now.  We do not have to all agree but must be respectful of each other.

Colorado Poet answered, twice.  Kudos to you. 

I believe that we must regularly engage with each other, feature each other, as Colorado Poet and I do, if we are serious about healing as a civilization.

I am privileged to have a blogger like Colorado Poet who is sincerely open to sharing her talent in the interest of creating better relations, understanding each other, and for plain friendship.


Her brand appeals to me.  …A lot!  I searched her site and easily selected several poems that resonate with me.

I love how the brevity of her poems efficiently utilizes the writing landscape.  This is clearly not one of my strengths, as evidence by my lengthy posts that sometimes seem like novels.

She uses imagery quite effectively with her poems, identifying the picture’s location.  I can tell that she puts great effort into selecting the perfect picture.  So, with each poem, I included her chosen image for that poem.  I also included links to her site all over the place.  Check Colorado Poet out.

‘That Guy’ Is Forever Gone

Forever Gone (Excerpt)

By Kevy Michaels

I can’t describe my feelings for you
I know that those feelings are strong

I can’t describe where I am right now
But where I was…
I will never return

…Feeling my soul vividly right now
…Been cleansed and transformed

The places where I tried to fit in
…Just don’t appeal to me anymore

I will forever have fond memories of you
Even of the man that I once was

But ‘that guy’ who escorted you
On a part of your journey

Is now
The man who’s

… Forever Gone
