What kinda energy are you sending out to the world today?


Working out always boosts me up

Muse with MAG: What kind of energy are you sending out in these moments? (13.04.2020)

I know it may be difficult answering this question right away or even taking a moment to reflect on that, but it so important for our mental wellness and those of others. I am a psychotherapist and a mental health user and care giver and I know first hand what the impact of the energy we receive from others and the universe can be. There are basically two categories of energy: The positive and the negative. The positive energy allows us to bloom and become the best version of ourselves, and the negative energy brings and keeps us down. Sometimes we cope with all this negative energy received in a healthy way, but sometimes we just can’t so and resort to unhealthy coping mechanisms like substance use and abuse, shopping, sex you name all those things we can do to ‘protect’ ourselves from getting and staying down. It’s a choice we can make daily and moment by moment you know; when we stop to think a minute before saying or doing something, or before reacting to what somebody says or does. I am earnestly more mindful of this for several months now, and I so love my life as is. I chose to intentionally send out positive energy especially in these challenging moments of the Covid-19 outbreak and confinement. I appreciate all those who are doing this too and who are even going a step further to support many others online or offline in whichever way they can in these present situation. Above all,  I am grateful to be learning and sharing and making all the choices I am intentionally making in my life now and hopefully thereafter o Amen. And you dear reader? Have a great week mindful of all

Muse with MAG: How do you live your life in these moments? (06.04.2020) I know it is stressful to even be thinking about some stuffs now as if we got plenty choice. For example if you had ordered clothes and shoes or bags, or had events planned out to organize or attend…This morning in my serene space I reflected on Mother Theresa's book a A Simple Path. I have read an biography of her but didn't get the spiritual sense of her choices. Anyways, tough to make certain ones like I did when I decided I don't want to own above 5 of any dress wear. Where are we even going to wear our underbox saps to nowadays? Simplicity is the order of the day in these moments, and maybe for some it will remain the way they choose to live their lives after this Covid-19 outbreak pandemic. I am grateful to be learning and sharing and making all the choices I am intentionally making in my life now and hopefully thereafter o Amen. And you dear reader? Have a great week mindful of all #howdoyoulivethesemoments? #Iamfreedomandlove #IamMAGnectic #MAGinspires #MAGmotivates #MAGisintentional #MAGtakesthelead #AttitudeofGratitude #Acceptitallfirst #mentalhealthmatters

I take part in a dance challenge with my sons to raise funds for H4AB


Mansa Musa Dance Challenge: A vote for team MAGnifique is a vote for Hope for the Abused and Battered

You don’t take part in a dance challenge at 41 unless you have reasons like I do (am no musician nor professional dancer o)

I have an organization and we need to raise funds by all means including dancing why not.

So, in addition to the above I dance to break stereotypes about what an African woman should do or not do at such an age; should wear or not wear too.

I am grateful my sons joined in willingly. The last is the king you see, the second is the King’s favourite guard, and the first was the camera man.

Mansa Musa just returned from a successful Hadj to Mecca and is in high spirits.

Like our clip, leave a comment of love and share so others do the same.

And please do not forget to check out the full song on their YouTube Channel @NPro Street Record Label, with gratitude to its founder Akeem Williams De Puzo
