Pushing Play

Hey Queen,

Yesterday I paused but today I am pressing play. It is amazing how a night of reflection and rest can rejuvenate. It all became clear that it was time for me to tap into my inner genius in order to rebuild my life within this new world that is evolving.

One person that I have been watching evolve in this ‘Rona Era’ is Eric Roberson. (If you don’t know who he is checking our www.ericrobersonmusic.com) I knew he was smart, gifted, and an old school hustler. But, as society began to shut down, Eric slipped deep into his genius and by the tools of technology, we were all able to watch his process.

I have always said that black men are alchemists. Observing men in my life create something out of nothing has always been a source of inspiration. But his was a whole new level. He was like a magician pulling mastery out of one of his many hats.

In four weeks I observed him create, produce and release an album, promote and grow his private membership, teach a music class online at Berkely, create Vlog cast, do interviews, and put out a music video. Wait there’s more. All while homeschooling his three sons and being there for his beautiful wife Shaun. I am exhausted but just talking about it.

We all have an inner genius. It is available to us at all times. It is that tingle or idea that comes through you. It is our internal GPS that gives clear direction on where to go next. In order to activate it is important to tap into it through prayer, meditation, and pure trust.

When you trust this guidance and activate it, pure magic happens. One will look up and accomplish nor in 28 days than many achieve in a lifetime. As the saying goes, “let go and let God.” Letting go of your ego, insecurities, and pride free up space allowing God’s guidance to flow through you. I believe that most of us here this guidance but talk ourselves out of letting it flow.

As Eric poured his musical gift all over the internet, he solidified his position as the King of Soul up in these streets. His business savvy is admirable and worthy of a Forbes cover. ( see what I did there)

Love and Light,

Monica Wisdom,

Today I Pause

Hey Queen,

When the world stopped, for many, it was a welcomed break. We were told that the virus would be in and out of here quickly and life would return back to normal. Now some five weeks later the world is realizing that the life we had before will become a shadowed memory. It seems that life will no longer be new nor will it ever be normal. As divine souls, we are learning how to adapt and adjust.

I have been working since I was 9 years old. Working at my father’s pharmacy at the front register selling everything from penny candy to toilet paper. We were literally the corner store. Walgreen before anyone ever heard of a wal or a greens. My job happened on the weekends, holidays, and summers. I learned to count money in my head and could calculate change perfectly in my head. Life was not simple but, it certainly seemed easier than now.

Now, I can’t say that I have gone without money because there were times when all we had was peanut butter bread and a bag of potatoes due to my parent’s divorce or my father’s business having to close because Walgreens moved up the street. Yes, the irony does not escape me.

But who would ever think that a pandemic would be the culprit of how the world is now. I have been doing my best to stay positive, but as days pass and people die, it gets harder and harder to find a smile. My mood is just solemn as I do my best not to fall deep into sadness.

Yes, I know in my heart that this will pass. I also know that this is a great time of innovation. Some of the most powerful companies out now started during the last recession. I know the numbers and stats. But this day seems like the realization that life is again going to be different.

I have a choice. I get to choose how I want it to be different. I get to choose if I fall off the side of a mountain or I climb to the next plateau. It is kind of a powerful place to know that its all on me. Today it seems heavy. Today the world seems heavy.

The saving grace of it all is that I do not have to carry it alone. The load is lighter when we all do it together.

But today I am mourning my life as I knew it while moving forward rebuilding my new world.

For a moment I am going to pause, lay down my crown, and simply cry.

Love and Love,

Monica Wisdom
