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.

Forgive & Forget The Past In God’s Time – But Hold On Its Wisdom -11 Tips On How To Roll With The Past – In 2022’s Energy Of Quantum Leaps, Fret Not!

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,” – Philippians 3:13

Forgiving and forgetting are wise practices to exercise, as we are now in the new year of 2022.

Audio Comments On Forgiving & Forgetting The Past


This year promises to be a year of things moving extremely fast. Master Sri Akarshana refers to 2022 as the Quantum Leap year where everything, for and against our greatest good, will be moving rapidly, in health, wealth, and relationships.

So, we must be aware of the energies that surround us, and we, therefore, have no time to be absorbed into past pains. I say that we must forgive those pains, but remember, not forget, what caused them.

We must especially use lessons we learned from the past in the energy-dynamic environment that 2022 promises to be.

Master Sri Akarshana’s Predictions for 2022, explains that in 2022, things will be sped up and we will react in one of three ways, Quantum Leaping Forward, being the best:

  • Quantum Leap Backwards
  • Wait It Out – Hoping Only but doing nothing
  • Quantum Leaping Forward

Photographer & Creator Brandyce (Bran-dis) On Reflecting – Moving Forward – A Review Of 2020 – 2022 In Numerology – She’s A Certified Holistic Nutritionist Too Y’all!

I love this time of year because it is a time of reflection, but for me, it triggers a deeper self-reflection, as it has for me for the last, I would say 30 or more years.

I just celebrated my birthday on January 5th, just a few days ago. With my birthday landing right after Christmas and New Year’s, I began soul searching around Christmas time, while everyone else seemed to be shopping and celebrating. As I mentioned, my holiday season celebrations are spent mostly alone and in nature, as was my birthday “celebration.”

I love the beginning and end of each year. As would be expected, at the end of the year, I usually aim to end a behavior, habit, relationship, or end an unhealthy lifestyle practice. At the beginning of the year, I reflect on how I will adapt to the change in era, time, and vibration. …Or changes in me. I try not to superimpose the prior year on the new year, just as I see ‘every day as a clean slate’. It is a given for me that the new year must be different in some way.

In this year, 2022, I have already accepted that “normal” no longer exists and will never return. I feel more certain that in 2022 I will not be trying to convince others who are on a whole different vibe than I am. I will be trying to connect more with others who are already on or near the vibe where I reside.


I have met such high-vibers through the Seasons as My Teacher blog. I love how blogging allows us to connect with other like-minded people, who have the passion to write, and read posts. It takes a certain calmness to take the time to do so juxtaposed with fast-paced social media.

Quotes & Videos For Days On Courage – There Is A Calling To Be Bold & Have Courage – To Be Okay With Uncertainty – Maybe U Are Being Summoned?

“Courage is not just plunging in when you don’t know the way, it is plunging in and being okay with not knowing the way.” – Kevy Michaels

I’m not one to bite my tongue when it comes to expressing how I feel. But that’s because today I have courage. I didn’t always have courage. In the past, my fears were really centered around being accepted by others, having low self-esteem, and not being confident in myself. I spent a great deal of my life trying to please others. Because of that fear, and not having courage, I made my life quite miserable. I made many mistakes. But, even in those mistakes, I’m so grateful. Because, that’s why I have the courage today, and I can speak up.

I Love Me Some Honey! – Good 2 Me – Good 4 Me – And So Sweet!

Honey is amazing! I just had a tablespoon prior to publishing this post. 

I chopped 2 cloves of garlic to mix with my second spoon.  But I’m allowing the chopped garlic to be exposed to the air for about 10 – 15 minutes to get the maximum health benefits.

Let Garlic Sit For A Spell

I’m learning more about nature’s gift of honey every day, God’s gift.  This is yet another example of how I view Health as Spiritual.  Most of the things that are healing for us, physically, mentally, and spiritually, are of God.  Honey, Bees, and Garlic are directly from the Divine Spirit. 

While doing research for this post, I found how incredible bees are in producing it. I’ll elaborate on that below.

I knew of many of honey’s health benefits. I consume it almost every day, but in different ways, and in different strengths, depending on the need.

I add it to warm water, and lemon juice, first thing in the morning as a daily detox, and to reduce digestive stomach acids.

I put it directly on cuts and abrasions.

I mix honey with freshly chopped garlic as a treatment for colds, flu, or just to boost immunity.  This is highly recommended during the pandemic, and especially with the unknowns surrounding Omicron.  When I mix it with freshly chopped garlic, I follow this as a regiment for 5 – 7 days.

Sometimes I take honey in a teaspoon with essential oils like clove, lavender, and peppermint.

Otherwise, I use it as a food and sweetener.  Most of the time, I just swirl it on fresh fruit for breakfast or I just take it raw.

I love honey.  It is a part of my regular health regiment.
