are you? are we?

Lately I’ve been thinking about this experience we are having as spirits.

Are we really living or are we just existing?

Day by day most of us practice the same routine and may switch it up a bit but overall its usually the same.

Work. Eat. Sleep.

Nhighow you definitely are a few levels up if your able to rise and do you 100% everyday. It seems to take a lot of escaping the fears that are embedded into our souls to be able to let go and live. You are in the 5% of the worlds population who may really be living out their highest physical life.

Lets work on it.

Let’s each take out a pen and piece of paper and write down how much of the things we do every day is what we actually want to be doing, how much of it is routine and also incorporate what is it that we would much rather be doing (be REALISTIC.)

Look at that list.

How does it make you feel?

If your disappointed, don’t be.

We are all beyond capable spirits, think about how much work it takes to just be alive. So why not be all the way alive! Be so alive that every day you are able to do exactly what you want to do organically with not a second thought.

Create that life for yourself.

We can both work on living our fullest potential both spiritually and physically every second of the day.

I need to, too.

It’s not magic but take a chance.


well rested bihhhhhh.

This is how you don’t lose sleep over BULLSHIT…

  • you don’t let shit reach your soul unless deemed worthy of soul touch.
  • you protect yourself at all cost.
  • no matter what situation comes into your path, you are the controller of your right now.
  • you take time to yourself more than you actually think you should.fuckthebs
  • you give the same amount of energy that is being reflected to you back so therefore you don’t give to much or not enough (shit we even right.)
  • you stay hydrated.
  • you stay occupied with creative shit.
  • don’t text him/her first (had to slip that in)
  • stay walking with your protectors and spirits and never lose sight of them.
  • stay massaging yourself with coconut oil.
  • express your emotions.
  • write “fuck that shit” a million times over until you completely don’t fuck with that shit.
  • do you.
  • masturbate.
  • give yourself hella credit just for waking up and being bomb as fuck.
  • touch your hair, massage your scalp.
  • dance in the mirror and grope yourself.
  • burn some money sometimes..remind yourself this shit ain’t real.
  • on the flip side though GET THIS MONEY!!! then proceed to give thanks.
  • fuck a few times in scorpion pose.
  • pay your bills on time.

INTERMISSION – Shit getting crazy huh? I’m listing you up with ways to improve your sleep and not lose sleep. Thank me later.  

  • spray paint a vagina on the property of Trump.
  • bathe in rain water, steep with rain water then collect more rain water.
  • get as weird as you possibly can every day.
  • spend only a hour a day on social media…the rest of your precious life shall be spent stunting in reality.
  • don’t explain yourself to nobody.
  • let the body enjoy its pure form…butt ass naked with no materials covering our hearts.
  • don’t text the ex.
  • don’t run after him or her…I mean shit if you gotta run which can make you possibly loose breathe and die then wtf is the point? there isn’t one! BYE.
  • embrace your skin and if you chocolate take a bite out yourself for me.
  • acknowledge your innerG and never back down.
  • don’t be on no sucker shit EVER IN LIFE.
  • never feel guilty for doing you…being you and loving you.

…and these are some of the ways we will never lose sleep over bullshit. 


connected souls.


I think about you every day…who you are I don’t know yet.

I don’t see your face but I hear your voice.

It keeps me going.

It keeps me high.

It’s a connection built before the flesh.

The flesh came last.

Internally I know  who you are but I can’t see you.

I can’t find you.

You seem so far away.

But when the bright sun  is on my skin, that’s when I feel the closest to you.

Connected on another realm.

One not close to here.

One that breaths no other life but ours.

In the stars.

In the mountains.

In the trees.




Lets meet again.


Silence Ain’t So GOLD In These Times…

Shit if you ain’t making no noise right now you living in the wrong times and you are sadly apart of the problem.

If we sit still in times of need then we are apart of the problem.

Though I don’t go to protest, rallies, or do sit-ins I respect those that do. I do find them counterproductive sometimes.

I kind on want to touch on why I don’t…just to clear the air.

In my opinion meeting up to go a protest that the cops already know we will be at (because we are in the 21st century and can’t seem to keep our movement off social media) is….. NOT A SMART MOVE ya’ll!

So the cops now know to show up with weapons of lethal force “just in case” shit gets wild…in which shit gets wild 9 times out of 10 because there was some short of disturbance on the police end. I’m just saying…I’ve been to these type of movements and shit just a big danger zone for black bodies so I decided long ago to support them from a distance.

Also, what the hell has rallying done for our black asses lately? Not a damn thing other than get us thrown in jail quicker? Get us shot by the KKK? and get us killed by a muthafuckan “police bomb” – (whatever that is.)

Our own damn president can’t say he supports BLACK LIVES before he is cut off air.  SO what makes us think they care about our black feelings?

Why rally and give them peace…they are not a peaceful force so I’m straight on putting myself in the position to get fucked up.

BUT I understand that movements like this are necessary for MOST of our people so cool.

But if we to scared to take a day off work because we feel the pain of losing our people to excessive police brutality then we not even freeing ourselves. We attached. You and me both.

They don’t care about our culture and preserving us (only we can do that.)

Because these laws are not for us to like or for us to feel protected by. AGAIN, our black feelings are not apart of the law book and our black feelings are not thought of when they talk about change in this country.

Why are we giving them this much power over our bodies and spirit? I am over trying to change this fucked up system that was designed by thieves and murders….the same ones of today.  Fuck their feelings actually.  Fuck their laws. Fuck the ego that drives their sick actions. 

To all black bodies around the universe….stay smart and safe. If you choose to protest make it as productive as possible and really allow people to walk away with options and in hopeful cases….a little more freedom. 

I am trying to do my part as much as I can, I know you are too!


A Black Yoga Teacher In A Time Like This…

elevationHere I am about two hours away from teaching and I feel uneasy.

I am in deep thought  about what I’m going to say to a class that is 90% white people.

Will everyone look at me and know the pain I’m actually feeling along with so many others?

What is a class suppose to feel like after these fucked up situations happen? How am I going to teach about love and kindness when it feels like a lump in my throat is rising each moment I breathe.

I’ve thought of themes, I’ve thought of making a all black playlist, I’ve thought about getting it covered…shit I even thought about asking people to form a circle of love.

I sat here…wondering….shifting in thought…..

I found one answer…

I’m going to do nothing but be my simple and free self in this hour of peaceful time.

I am going to allow myself to be open and protected. I do know that when we can practice a moment of peace…take it.

What to do when you’re on cloud 10 but someone else is vibrating on a negative frequency?

No need to sit there and pretend this doesn’t happen to you or that your not the one sometimes dishing out the low vibration.

cardone-product-merch-only-positivityWe all encounter some pretty negative people here and there and truthfully I don’t believe it’s a way to completely get rid of those people or situations.

Energy is all around us and all we can do is control our own.

The energy that we give is the energy that we will receive.

Ask yourself to remember the last time you were angry, what did it feel like? How did you react to the situation? What type energy were you giving off to attract such an emotion/response?

Your memory may direct you to the cause of the anger, maybe someone pissed you off while driving so your frequency went wacky and you lost control and let that emotion over power you. That person put out a cause that bounced off of you and made you feel a certain way…but how could that have been avoided?

That’s the ultimate question, no one answer can solve.

Here are a few suggestions though…

We can let our frequency stay higher than the one that was put out in the first place to cause a low vibration (easier said than done…I know.)

We can literally put up a shield of protection from negative sources from the moment we wake in the morning.

I am saying that when we rise we will notice that we have the opportunity to be light, free and positive….by choice.

Hopefully we understand that we are in control, we understand that our actions the night before can cause us to wake either positive or negative.

With that being said….we can wake and manifest a whole day of positivity with the guidance of our higher powers asking them to only bring situations and people of positive light into our paths.

That’s why it’s so important to rise and ritual. Nothing comes before until after.

Again we are in control.

When we feel a rise of emotion that is not of a positive force or source we block it out asap. NO dwelling in it nor NO energy will be given to it so therefore it will not be fed or empowered. We will not drain our energy with that of negativity.

Again….I am not perfect and I have to literally remind myself of everything I am reminding you of at this moment.

When someone else is bringing negative fire to you, say in your head (your spirit) I am not going to feed this source and I will not be effected by this source. Once you have this in your head and spirit the person or situation has no power.

As we learn to control what we react to this will become easier.

Let’s work on it together.

Much love,

w a i t e d.

Tokimonsta – “I’m Waiting”

See I’m waiting.

Waiting for your footsteps to walk on my soul.

Waiting for your hands to take a hold of my heart.

Waiting for me to lose my breath, waiting for you.

Waiting for you to disappear into the darkness where I swear I found you.

I waited for you to come to light.

Waited for you to become light.

Instead you turned into dust at my feet.

Tried to grab your finger tips before all of you left me.

I collapsed and waited till I couldn’t breath.

I woke up to find it was all a dream and I no longer had to wait for you to appear, you were waiting inside of me.

-Words by Imani Smith


MANIFESTOR : One that Manifest.

I am opening up to the possibility that I am a master m a n i f e s t o r.

My whole life I had the thought in the back of my mind that I was in control of my destiny, even when I knew nothing about the law of attraction.

Detailed image of the Helix Nebula.I use to sit in church during our normal catholic school regimen and wonder if God was this person in a transformer type of get up, directing billions of people left and right. The thought would cross my mind but then quickly fade away when I thought about all the stress it would be to do such a job.

My thoughts were overshadowed with “what if I’m in control,  what if I am the transformer of my destiny,” this seemed more realistic…. more free.

Years later in high school I found Nam Myoho Renge Kyo – a Buddhist philosophy that helps you take control of your life. On top of the bountifulness that came with taking control I also noticed the power in the law of attraction. A power that they didn’t teach while drinking the blood of Jesus Christ.

Something in my spirit said Imani, you are the controller and with the practice I realized this was true in all ways. I didn’t have to wait around for the robotic movement. I could move, groove and create shit that I always dreamed of creating instead of listening to the whole “pray to Jesus and you will receive,” spill.

Now don’t get me wrong I believe in God but God is now me. God isn’t a being in the sky that is directing my destiny. I have slipped away from the thought of God being outside of me, I like to think of the spirit being alive inside and this very belief along with many other rituals has turned me into a master manifestor!

Nothing is easy at all even when you know you are in control, if anything this makes life a little more challenging knowing that I can’t wait around for something to mysteriously happen. What I put out is what I receive back, if I want to manifest a job, home, a million dollars I can if my brain sends the message to the universe it eventually will happen.

Now it’s not magic or shit it kind of is but you have to put in work in order to draw these things into your life. DISCLAIMER – you can manifest whatever you like it doesn’t and shouldn’t only be material stuff but things that help you elevate overall. This helps to show the universe that you aren’t greedy just a creator.

Manifestation can literally transform your life in so many powerful ways. You can go to a dull life to something so bright and sunny.

I have so many stories I could share but I’ll let you be the judge and manifestor of your own destiny. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to wake up and say I will have a wonderful day, I will have abundance and I will succeed and truly see your day unfolding in such a way. With time and practice you will start to create your destiny and become the powerful being that you truly are!

Come back and share your manifestation stories with me in the comments below.

With love,



Hello, Palo Santo!

So I just discovered a new tool to add to my cleansing rituals/ceremonies.

I usually use sage to cleanse my home and aura but I was looking for something new, something that didn’t create such a thick smoke.

I came across Palo Santo incense sticks. Many of us probably already know what these are or at least have heard about them.

I gathered some information on the benefits and history of it’s power to share with those of you who haven’t.

What is Palo Santo?

Palo Santo is a sacred wood that comes from the magical Palo Santo tree, native to the coast of South America. Its name literally means holy wood and is treated as such in different shaman rituals.  The stick is said to have healing, medicinal and therapeutic powers that have been proven over many generations.

This powerful stick is used mostly by the Incas, indigenous people of Andes and many other healers around the universe.

Properties of Palo Santo? 

Palo Santo is used to bring about grounding energy, creativity, protection, clearing out negative energy and bringing both love and good fortune to the practitioner. You can burn this incense during your meditation because it helps to raise your vibration and also provides clarity. It helps to align you closer to the  Earth and your divine source of creation.

Healing can also occur physically from the Palo Santo, it helps to cure symptoms from colds, headaches, anxiety, depression, emotional pain, inflammation and much more. The smoke is smooth, light and very refreshing so it doesn’t create a thick smoke like Sage or Ceder. It’s a nice background incense when your doing your yoga or meditation.

You can also boil the sticks at a low temp to create a tea that will help calm down your immune and nervous system.

One of the most amazing aspects of the magical Palo Santo Wood is that it is wild harvested by a family that has planted over 30,000 trees in Ecuador over the last 10 years. The Palo Santo Wood comes from naturally fallen trees and branches that lie dead for 4-10 years before they are harvested. This ensures a very high-quality product that is constantly surrounded by love and respect. (

There are numerous benefits to Palo Santo! You won’t be disappointed with this sacred stick and you can find it in most of your local healer shops but if not it can be ordered online but as always be careful of buying sacred online!

Enjoy and come back and tell me the amazing benefits you have had with the sacred sticks.
