The Antidotes…to Stress…Fear…and Anxiety…

Isis with Horus – African Prototype-Virgin Mary With Child – Altar/Photograph by Toni Roberts

I…as you…am a mere mortal working diligently to maintain balance and equilibrium in a world gone berserk…the only thing preventing me from flying apart into a million confused pieces is Time spent with the Ancestors…hours communing with my Spirit Guides…and seeking Divine Counsel from my Family which art on the Other Side of Life

I have thus discovered the antidotes to STRESSFEAR…and ANXIETY…The three causes of all that ails us…throwing our bodiesminds…and souls out of kilter…and into states of diseaseimbalance…and despair

 

STRESSOne may replace all traces of STRESS…with PEACE

One may…indeed…achieve a “peace beyond understanding…”a lasting PEACE that remains with one throughout the day…by simply beginning each day in quiet prayerjournaling…and in Meditative Contemplation in one’s Sacred Space

This daily time of SILENCE…surrounded by Living Spirit then becomes one’s anchor in this life…one’s “church…”one’s “religion…”

One’s antidote to STRESS

 

FEAR…the “mind-killer…” cannot exist in the same space with LOVE and GRATITUDE

And so…one must remain mindful each moment of each day of what one is feeling…

Mindful…of the Energy that one is projecting out into the world with every thoughtword…and action

Are you responding to the world with LOVE…? Or with ridicule and judgment…?

Do you give when and where you see a need that you can fulfill…?

Are you living each day mindful of the healing power of LOVE…?

Are you immersing yourself in loving Energy whenever…wherever…and with whomever you can…?

One finds that FEAR all but disappears in the abundance of LOVE…pouring naturally…Un-summoned…from one’s heart into the world…

LOVE is then proven to be an inherentintrinsicinborn antidote to FEAR

 

ANXIETY…once you have accepted the Reality that you did not create yourself…it then follows that there must exist…in some Realm or OtherTHAT WHICH CAUSED YOU INTO BEING

Whatever It may be…

By Whatever Name called…

It then follows that this Creative Intelligence…that created you…knows why It has created you…

Therefore…

Your only job is to learn why you are here

The Purpose in your being human on planet Earth

It then becomes easy to relax into your life…whatever it may look like at any given moment…with the TRUST that your CREATOR will show you the reason for your BEING

You can then put one trustingfaithful foot before the other as you step carefully through the most troubling and fearful times

Knowing that THAT WHICH CAUSED YOU INTO BEING…also knows what It is doing with your life

Right hereRight nowStep by stepWalk in faithful knowing

Live your life with TRUST

The antidote to ANXIETY

 

Ase and Goddess bless us all.

Communing With The Ancestors…

Communing With the Ancestors – Altar/Photography by Toni Roberts

COVID 19 and African Peoples 

Although all Earthly Forces are now poised for our DESTRUCTION…wherever we may be on the planet…it is of vital importance that we remember: 

Despite all outer appearances…The ANCESTORSgot this!” 

Our job is to meet THEM within the Silence of our beings

At the Heart Center

The place of Truth 

Once there we must become stillattentive 

Listening within the Silence 

And then Following…as in OBEYING… 

All Inner DirectivesHunchesUrgesIntuitionsPremonitions…and Knowingswithout knowing how one knows 

We may be sure that proper Guidance will be given… 

Remember…this human life is merely the small portion of the iceberg that is visible above the ocean…the Source lies hidden in the Deep 

Now is the time for us to dive deeply within…

Our human power alone is simply not sufficient against the current Forces of Destruction

To be forewarned is to be forearmed.”

Ase and Goddess bless.

“Altared” At My Altar On A Number Seven Day…Incoming Message…

Today is a number seven day…

a day of surrender to the Source of your being.

This is a very propitious time…

with much going on in the lives of those connected to you…

You must remain anchored in Spirit

Allow your God to be you…

to guide your every thought…every action…

every step you take and

word you speak.

Remember–your only job is to

keep on loving and to use your human will to

maintain conscious connection to

The Great Mystery

Let It do the Work

inas…and through you…

from the inside out…

Drumming in Marcus Garvey Park…

And yesterday…Saturday

after the gift of Friday with K. in Central Park

came the ecstasy of drumming in

Marcus Garvey Park

A Holy Circle of

modern-day santeros, babalawos, curanderas

women, men and children

who are called by

the Spirit of the Drum

Grandfather blessing my drum…

Gathering weekly to pay homage

to the Motherland: Africa

Lending body, mind and soul

as vehicles upon which the Orishas may ride…

Giving oneself up as intermediary

between the two worlds

vessels to be filled with the

Voice of Drum Spirit…

Holy Rhythms of Healing and Love

rippling out from the village of Harlem

in never ending circles…

through the city…

the nation…

the world…

A Day of Gratitude and Understanding…

rising…rising…ever rising…

What joy!

Am learning to give this life I call “mine” back to Life: it’s rightful “Owner”

Thank You…Life

for this sense of peace, safety, love, security, assurance

which arises from a place

deep within The Mystery

assuring me that all is well…

that You now flow freely…unobstructed in, as and through me…

as the True Author of this

ever-changing…ever-evolving

experience

called the life of Toni Roberts…

I now see shape and purpose

in the daily unfolding of a journey

that began before the beginning of time...

I am re-membering what “i” came here knowing…

even then in the ignorant, pain-filled innocence

of childhood…adolescence…young adulthood…

even then I knew

at some deep

essential

level of being…

the purpose of this journey…

I now understand:

it is through the of deep wounds

of the soul…

that Light passes through

and with that Light

Love

long held down…repressed by Fear

Love

bubbling up to the surface of being…

transforming

a chaotic…badly constructed…and purposeless

Idiot’s Tale called human life on planet earth

into

the experience of

channeling Life

from the inside out
