When I began working on God is a Brown Girl, Too, I could not imagine how it would take shape, but I knew that I was called to create it. When we are called to do something, spirit-moved into action, soul-motivated to be obedient to the Holy Spirit, we don’t have to worry about how it will take shape. God goes before us to do the work that we are appointed us to do. All of the pieces fall into place. The right people show up to help us. Mentors appear from seemingly out of nowhere to guide us. New ideas bless us with creative expressions of divine source. Resources that we had never imagined unfold our unlimited blessings. And we witness the magic of the universe giving shape to something bigger than who we are in the flesh.
For example, this weekend at the Awaken to Love Retreat, we will enjoy the magic of God is a Brown Girl Too unfolding a new story that recognizes that God is not limited but is constantly creating through an endless stream of love. Gospel Songstress Sonya Johnson will bless us with some beautiful music from her album, Opera Singer Malesha Jessie will uplift us with her music ministry, Worship Leader Celestine Walker will bless us with her ministry, and beautiful and talented actor Aakhu Tuah Nera Freeman will perform selections from the God is a Brown Girl Too script. And tomorrow evening, the magic begins. Hope you will be joining us.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a multimillionaire from Scarsdale or a brown girl from the South Bronx, the magic begins the moment you realize God is blessing you from a wellspring of inexhaustible source. Look not to your life, nor to your right — just know that the magic is here. The love of God is within our body temples, our soul auras and our minds re-wakening, just waiting to unfold good as us. Some call it grace, some call it a miracle, some call it luck, some call it the silence. Some simply say, “It is done.”
When you truly believe that it is done and you speak with a consciousness of power and faith, Spirit will embrace you with an abundance of success. You will know without a doubt that all of those things that you need in the material world are manifesting right now. You will start recognizing the pure potential that God is expressing as you. You will no longer fear a retreat into the silence because you will know that God is always speaking to us: all we have to do is listen.
Stop tip-toeing around the periphery of your greatness and allow your magic to begin with the understanding that Spirit is the omnipotent creator of the shape and form and texture of everything in your midst! Open your heart to the power that is never separate from who you are in Spirit. Jesus said that you are such a magnificent heir to the throne that all you have to do is ask, and it is done.
Awaken to the truth that that the Kingdom of God is within us. Awaken to power of Love — anointing you and cleansing you and expressing as you. The magic, the Kingdom that you have long prayed for, is here. It is done! Judge not by the appearances of less or the vision of lack. See rightly the success that is always shining its light through you. We do not need the economic appearances of health, the promises of others, the limited resources that we see in the physical world. The only thing that we need is the full and complete understanding of our divine nature.
