On March 31st 2017 I packed my bags and got rid of things I didn’t need; I said my last goodbyes and gave my last hugs. On April 1st, the next day, I took my bags, hopped on the plane and headed to California. I had no plans for who I was staying with; I had no plans to adopt any 9-5 jobs and I had no plans for earning money. The only thing I knew, was to follow my spirit, and I did just that.
California had been calling me for some time now. At first I thought it was just a fun idea to come out here with my boys, do our music, perform and explore. So for a while I had put the idea off. One year went by and the voices of my spirits become stronger. Everything around me had said California. From T shirts, to books, down to a brand of veggie burgers. I was even having a random conversation about cats, and the lady I spoke with told me that she knew a cat that was oddly called Cali. This was how I knew I could no longer stray from what the great divine was trying to tell me: that there is something out there for me.
Because I chose to make that big decision to leave New Jersey, and go on “blind faith”, I was rewarded with a safety net, staying with two friends, one of whom I’ve known for 14 years now. Staying with like-minded people like myself, I’ve been given the gift of living with other healers with great humor, compassion and purpose. The only job I have been working on, is the original one the Lord has given me: which is to work on my emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. I have a good chunk of change in my pocket, and I am not worried about anything.
I’ve been told that home is where the heart is; that no matter where you go, you are home; you are free. I agree with this. I also know to follow my spirit when it calls me to move forward on my journey. I was meant to come to Cali to get completely out of my comfort zone. Had I stayed in Jersey I would have spent money frivolously, stayed in my doubtful state of mind, taking everything for granted and would have kept myself trapped in a dark box of self-doubt. Making this move meant, I couldn’t spend too carelessly because I didn’t know the next time I would receive any money and from where. It meant being in an area that I am not at all familiar with, so that I couldn’t leech on anybody that I knew to hang onto in order to hang on to old habits. Being out here, where the sun is always out, using a fresh state for a fresh state of mind is what I needed. There is more to come while I am still here.
I am coming back to New Jersey. When I am finished with my ascension, I will come back stronger, more peaceful, more purposeful, with more light, love and wisdom so that I can come back home, to make some beautiful changes.
