Saludos Tribe,
I invite you to listen Friday morning September 11th, 2015 at 9am to my latest Cafecito Break – Music Talk Bklyn Show

On September 11th, 2001, I was working in Times Square for Vh-I.  

I was setting up a production shoot when all of a sudden chaos erupted. 

The towers fell, the city shut down. No mass transportation, no subways, no access to bridges, and very little phone communications. 

For those of us who were in the city, words can never truly capture the life changing impacts of that day. 

Tomorrow on, I will be sharing my reflections regarding September 11th, what I’ve learned, what I witnessed, how life changed for me, and how this tragedy created an opportunity for many people to “awaken” to harsh truths and realities of our world. 

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are things to be considered . . .

Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Are you in right relation?

Where is your water?

Know your garden.

It is time to speak your Truth.

Create your community.

Be good to each other.

And do not look outside yourself for the leader.”

“This could be a good time!”

 “There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly. 
“Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, Least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. 
    “The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from you attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration. 
    “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
— attributed to an unnamed Hopi elder

“If life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.” – Wayne Dyer

I am crushed by the sudden loss of Mr. Wayne Dyer and feel guided to open up my Cafecito Break Podcast this morning to honor his memory and the lessons he brought us.

We invite you to listen to our latest Cfecito Break Podcast for a conversation on some of the teachings we learned from Wayne Dyer.

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.

-Mahatma Gandhi

Blessings Tribe,
Every Monday Morning at 11am est, Ruthie Guten and I host a podcast called, “Cafecito Break -Empowering the Voice of the Awakening Woman.   
This week we talked about “Learning to see thru the “bullship” as my father would affectionately say. We talked about being discerning and trusting your heart when reading/hearing mainstream media news. Some stories are lies, half truths, or geared to shape the public opinion or created to add to the fire of racism that seems to be outwardly elevating.  
We invite you to listen to a show created with love, sisterhood, and real talk. click the link that follows to hear the show.
