Life is all about going through different cycles!ย 

Hey Pearls, 

I hope you all have been doing well! There has been so much changing in my life since I last blogged. The last time I posted, it was not under the best circumstances. Our son had a mental health emergency, which set me back because it was a situation I would never expect to happen. I wanted to give you all an update, things have improved, and we are slowly but surely getting back to our regular schedule. One thing I learned from that entire situation was to remain as calm as possible through the storms in your life. Do not fret because, after the storm, there is always sunshine! 

On a positive note, I have been going through a life cycle myself. I do not know precisely how to explain it, but itโ€™s a good cycle. Although I have had some bumps in the road, there have not been any detours this month! This month I have focused solely on becoming a better version of myself. What does becoming a better version of yourself looks like for you? A better version of myself means making improvements from the month, week, and day before. March, I allowed people, situations, and circumstances to hold me down. I felt like I was drowning and could not come up for air. There was a point when I just thought, โ€œIf not for my children, I would end it all.โ€ Those emotions stem from feeling overwhelmed and not knowing how to release, recover, or realign myself more swiftly. Last month I soaked in depression longer than usual, and it made me feel like a failure because usually, I am resilient and bounce right back. Due to the traumatic month of March, I vowed to realign myself for April. Since then, I have been on this cycle of feeling at peace, spending time with myself, giving myself grace, enjoying doing what I love, and finishing what I started a while ago before the postpartum depression kicked in a few months ago. 

So, what did I finish! I Finished my first E-Book, The Pearl Blog Presents: The Healing Journey Healing & Growing One Day at a Time! I have wanted to finish this book for months because it has been my dream for years to create a guide that helps others start their healing in the ways someone helped me. This E-book defines the healing journey and asks crucial questions that make you think, โ€œDo I have unhealed trauma?โ€ โ€œIf so, โ€œHow can I heal from this trauma?โ€ or simply โ€œWhat Healing Techniques are available for me?โ€ My E-book answers all those questions and so much more. Some pages made me cry, like talking about childhood trauma, broken bonds, and unhealthy habits. I was vulnerable, and if you are reading this and thinking maybe I should purchase this e-bookโ€ฆ go right ahead because that is a sign that you may need to start your healing journey. 

E-Book early purchases avalible now!

Mental health and healing mean so much to me because starting the healing journey for me was a life-changing experience. Healing has allowed me to be in the room with people who have hurt me. Healing has taught me to love myself and give myself more grace because I deserve it! When you have a mental illness, the healing journey can sometimes be more complicated, and that is another reason I wanted to write this e-book because there are parts that discuss mental illness and how to help yourself through those mental health struggles. Healing is a process, and I am not saying this book will heal you immediately. Still, this book will give you an idea of where you are on your healing journey and what changes are needed to make sure you are improving and prioritizing your mental heal, healing, and growing journey. It is imperative to know that nothing worth having comes easy & that includes having a life of peace. If you have grown up in a tumultuous situation or adulthood, know and understand that it will be a long journey before you have complete peace. The most important thing about healing is staying assertive, taking accountability, and never giving up on yourself. 

If you are reading this right now, I want you to go ahead and take advantage of the early access. You can click this link to purchase my e-book, The Pearl Blog Presents: The Healing Journey Healing & Growing One Day at a Time! My โ€œrevampedโ€ Mental Health Tees line is also available. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and I wanted to revamp my t-shirt line. It is the best work I have done. The shirts are of better quality & they have messages on them that I advocate. So, for everyone reading this, get yours before they are all out! I am so excited about the e-book and merchandise!

Healing & Growing Merch now avaliable to purchase!

Working on this helped me gain mental clarity and focus on the days I wanted to give up. April is always hard for me because I unexpectedly lost my dad on April 28, 2018, and I still can not believe he is gone. I dedicated my book to him because I know heโ€™s so proud of his baby girl & because through grief, I found strength I never knew I had! I want to thank all my subscribers and readers for your likes, comments, and sharing of my post. I appreciate it! Please leave reviews and let me know what you think about the e-book and t-shirts! Also, I am still posting daily on the @healingandgrowing_ Instagram page. My Instagram advocate for mental health and the healing journey! So, be sure to check me out! Again, thank you all so much! My heart is so full of gratitude!!

Divination…..

Hello, hello, & hello again!

Before I decided to write this blog, I asked myself, what would readers think? Would I be judged? Or would the readers be open-minded? I only doubted myself for about five minutes then I said, โ€œF it, I can only be myselfโ€! I want to jump right into it and ask what are your thoughts on divination? Do you believe in divination? Have you ever participated in divination? If you are not sure what divinations are let me explain!!ย 

Divination is the practice of seeking knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means.ย 

There are different forms of divination such as Tarot Cards & readings, reading tea leaves, pendulum divination, reading of bones, reading of stones, numerology, & even astrology. My divination of choice is Tarot Cards. I have studied & practiced them on a regular for a while, and before I initially started, I already knew I had the gift of intuition. My first experiences with intuition started when I was an adolescent. Around twelve years of age, I felt connected to spirit and often knew things before they transpired. Being a child, I did not understand and figured maybe I dreamed this, and it came to fruition. I grew up in a Methodist church and to speak of psychics or visions was not tolerated. Although there were fortune-telling and omens in the bible, most church people would rather ignore the fact that there are intuitive people in the world, and I know for sure I am one of them.

Before I understood my gift, I would just tell peopleย โ€œI am favoredโ€ย In my opinion favor has been with me and around me all my life. I can only thank my Source and ancestors before me for the favor. Have horrible things happened to me? Yes, I have experienced trauma, I have done wrong, been wronged, & through it all, I was still favored. Why do I call it favor? Well, because no matter what transpired in my life from sexual abuse, losing loved ones, domestic violence, combat trauma, divorce, & the enemy constantly attacking meโ€ฆ I have always remained in a position to bounce back. In my lowest moments, the spirit has come to me and ensured me everything will be okay. There have been spirits that I recognized & ones that I did not, but the overwhelming feeling of comfort from the spirits always reminded me that this here โ€œearthly stuffโ€ is only temporary. We are only placed here on earth in a shell/ body to complete our purpose and then we transcend to the spirit world and make an impact.

Knowing that our presence here on earth is temporary makes it easier to understand why I have experienced so much trauma. Everything that happens and everything that will happen is for a reason. The reason I practice Tarot Reading is that I accept and trust the guidance of my ancestors. Tarot Cards are my ancestorโ€™s guidance and energy that is passed through the Tarot Cards. To decipher Tarot Cards is a gift. Just because you may know the meaning of a particular Tarot Card does not make you are an experienced Tarot Reader. Tarot Reading requires a strong connection to spirit, deep meditation, cleanings of your energy, & trusting your intuition.ย Intuition is real!ย You cannot second guess yourself, your thoughts, or your feelings when it comes to Tarot Cards. Tarot Cards requires you to trust your intuition completely. If you think you are intuitive then try some intuitive practices. I like to predict certain situations, and then see if I am correct. When I first started reading Tarot Cards, I would read myself, and then once I became fully confident and trusted my cards, I started to read family members and friends.

Whether you are a believer or non-believer I have decided to share this because I am tired of hiding my gifts. I have been thinking a lot, and I feel now is the perfect time to share my gifts. I will start doing readings soon. If you are interested in discussing divinations or interested in a Tarot Reading, please click theย Contact Meย onย The Pearl Blog website! Now that I have shared my โ€œsecretโ€ with you all I would like to give you.โ€ฆ Yes, YOU! A one-card reading pull! I have meditated, saged, & shuffled my Tarot Deck, and here is the advice I would like to give anyone reading this blog: You may have assumed some responsibilities lately, and although the trials you are facing seems like more than you can bear, just know this โ€œYou have the strength to carry on and the burdens that you are experiencing are not too heavy for the Champion you areโ€ Stop taking on too much, & do not overdo it! DO NOT overburden yourself with unnecessary burdens. You can not and should not carry the world on your shoulders. Set boundaries in your life and learn to juggle your responsibilities in a way that does not cause you stress. Give up the control you are used to having and seek help if you need to! It is okay to not be okay, & it is okay to ask for help!

I hope you enjoyed this blog; it took a lot for me to share this! I have practiced this in silence for too long, and now the cat is out of the bag please feel free to comment, like, share, or contact me. I am an open-minded person and I do not judge people based on religion, beliefs, culture, race, sex, or orientation. The Pearl Blog was created for this. I enjoy sharing my testimonies, my struggles, my strengths, & my healing journey with you. Even before COVID just getting through life was hard for some of us, and the only thing that has kept me going is Source, divination, meditation, & The Pearl Blog. I hope that you keep pushing, keep believing, & find the healing you need. Remember no matter what you are experiencing it is all temporary!
