Erykah Badu

It doesn’t get more ethereal and mystical than Erykah Badu. The Texas-bred beauty has been giving the world gospel for nearly 30 years yet has still managed to keep her mystique. In a December 2017 interview with Vogue Magazine, Badu declared:

“We are all connected, not only with one another, but with the matter around us. We’re just vibrating at different rates. Whenever there is a song in a key of C.I am resonating with all those things that connect with that note’s frequency: the root chakra, the color red, the idea of tribe and community and grounding.”

We can all learn a thing or two, or four, from the mom of three who is never afraid to tell it like it is — even if the masses don’t agree.

” It’s not what I’m saying, it’s how I’m vibrating.”

12/8 I am here. This is now. I am breathing . I am thinking. I am observing my thoughts. I feel. It is light and cool. I can hear stillness all around. I now notice the things around me with my eyes. They remind me of My love. I feel my heart rate quicken. I feel him, My love. I smile with my whole body. It is strong and deep and intoxicating. I close my eyes and inhale the pleasure of this feeling. Every part of me is alive. He is inside of this. I feel love. It’s a feel. I feel. A feeling of guilt arises suddenly. It is some sort of denial of love. I am observing My mind wanting to take me to another place. I allow this. It is a familiar dark, damp space. My heart rate again quickens. I feel discomfort. Images of people and things that, seemingly, need my attention appear. I feel an unpleasant urgency. I am anxious. I feel fear. I am now existing in these thoughts. I allow My mind to create even more “reasons” to stay in this state. It is familiar. I feel alone. Now An Awareness arises and I feel suspicious. I realize I am no longer in that present moment of love. I am instead, seemingly, trapped inside of a displeasing thought. I sense that It is The denial of love. Wait. I am recalling.. that I have ALL power. I can CHOOSE to discriminate between which thoughts are fruitless musings and which of those thoughts bring joy. I smile a little . I close my eyes and DECIDE to shift my thinking. I will transform this energy now. I am breathing deeply as I inhale the presence of stillness all around me. I exhale strong. As I breathe, I expand AND contract with EVERYTHING. I am observing this. I feel Every Thing is observing ME. The shallow ache has left my chest. Suddenly I am here again. A voice inside me (that is me ) says, “ I WAS ALWAYS HERE. “ And This is now. ... Wo . That was close. Out my mind ... just in time. ——————————————— Random thoughts that aren’t so... random. - EB and EveryThing .
