Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Restart, adjust, change, make a mental whatever you need to do to improve your attitude and let love flow. Count your blessings if all else fails and you will see your perception change. Making an adjust to our attitudes is not always easy. In fact, much of our thinking and feelings are influenced by neurobiological processes outside of our awareness, yet they are not out of our influence. Take in 20, even just 10 deep breaths and notice how it can shift your mood. Test it out sometime when you are struggling to make a mental shift. Have a good day of blessings you can see. With much peace & more love. Maat E.

Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Give birth to something new! Although the child birth process is one of the most beautiful manifestations of the Divine, it is one of billions. We all have purpose and are here to create something in the likeness of the Creator. That likeness is not just about a physical image or something material. Not at all. The Creator is boundless energy manifesting in both seen and unseen forms. We can create even when we don't see it happening. Love for example is created sometimes without any clue we are building a relationship. Start creating with ideas on an unseen basis. Eventually you will give birth to magnificent ideas in line with your purpose.
Have a blessed day full of life, health and vitality. Peace, Maat E.

Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Keep up the faith and you will persevere! Our Higher Self has a multitude of lessons for us to learn as we go through life. We must continue to believe that we can get through whatever the seemingly challenging situation may be. Everyday we make small triumphs and if we fall then we are taking two steps forward as the old wise tale says. Forgive yourself and know that inside of you there is an endless Divinely inspired well of strength. Tapping into that internal power can be done by taking in a deep breath and telling yourself while exhaling, I know I can do it and will get through it.
Have a peace filled day full of life, health and vitality.
God Bless Maat E.

Maat E's Mental Health Message:
SHINE! The light of the sun shines and transforms energy from carbon dioxide to oxygen through photosynthesis in plants. It also shines and generates vitamin D within our own human skin. We too can transform our energy into radiance that shines and gives off a loving glow. We all know it when we see it and feel it when we have it. Shine today! Let Divine light radiate from your being. Be infectious with it so that a sense of love is felt by everyone you meet. Have a blessed day of life, health and vitality! Peace Maat E.

Maat E's Mental Health Message:
We are all sources of inspiration! Stop for a moment and in your silence reflect on the fact that is some shape or form you have touched someone's life for the better or greater good. If you believe that experiences in life are opportunities for a lesson then it is possible that our interactions (even the adverse ones) can generate inspiration. Be you today with the intention of inspiration. Much peace, more love. Maat E.

"Distinguish what is real from what is unreal." - Ancient African Principle of Maat

Many of us walk around everyday believing what we see, hear, smell, touch and taste as reality. According to ancient wisdom (and demonstrated by modern science), our reality is known through an extra sensory fashion. The truth being we are all part of one unseen Divine energy manifesting in different material forms. Sometimes we realize this reality, that is a sense of oneness and connection to everyone and all things. This wonderful state can get distorted if we loose our sense of boundaries while trying to experience oneness in the material realm (e.g. over involvement in other people's lives, inappropriate intimacies, being responsible for someone else's happiness). So recognize that we all are one, but distinguish how to function in the physical realm. Have a blessed day of life, health and vitality. Peace Maat E.

Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Think Big! You may have absolutely no idea of the possibilities for your life. It is the limits of what we think and don't imagine that restrain the possibilities. Stretch your thoughts, push the envelope, go over the top with devoting to your purpose and fulfilling your dreams. Have a blessed day of life, health and vitality. Peace Ma'at E.

Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Everybody has issues! We are all going through the daily struggles of life, and some! Often in our friendships or intimate relationships we become bitter and resentful when we don't hear from each other or are not feeling supported. Times are tough and many of our lives are in chaos. Know this and be gentle with yourself and others. Get out of your own head and resist being resentful. Use that Divine energy to be more loving toward yourself and to give love to someone else who probably has issues. The point is to understand we are all connected experiencing the lessons of life. Live life, have health and move with vitality. Peace, Maat E.

Maat E's Mental Health Message:
If your passion in life is driving you then move full speed ahead! Then, stay devoted to what you love and it will remain the driving force behind your actions. The universe will then conspire with you to fulfill your dreams. The trick is to know what you want in your heart and to believe it is yours. Lack of clarity and faith leave the forces of the Creator unsure about how to help. So get clear about your purpose or passion and move froward, act now to fulfill your dreams. Life, Health & Vitality - Peace Maat E. (Erica)

Maat E's Mental Health Message:

Have a bad day! Not bad meaning bad but bad meaning good. A strength of the Black culture is its ability to be creative and to flip language so that the meaning of things serves our higher good. This skill of changing the meaning of words can be adapted to any thoughts we think. We have the capacity to change our reality by changing our thinking. If perception is in fact 99% of reality as some say, then the chance of being able to redefine our circumstances is stacked in our favor. Try flipping the meaning of your thoughts today...make negative thought patterns, divinely positive. Have a bad day full of life, health and vitality. Peace Maat E.

Maat E's Mental Health Message

Start the day where you spiritually want to stay! Have you had mornings where you wake up and stub your toe or get into an argument for example, and the rest of the day seems to stay 'off'? Nothing seems to go right. Well that initial stress sets in to motion a series of biological activity in the brain that primes you for reacting and continuing to react adversely to stress. By staring the day engaging in whatever spiritual or religious rituals we use to get grounded we prepare the brain to handle repeated taxes on our psyche. Start the day breathing, praying, or meditating. The resources will subconsciously protect you and consciously be in your awareness for use at any time. Start in a spiritual state to stay or be able to return to a spiritual state.
Have a blessed day full of life, health and vitality! Peace, Maat E."
