Moses is one of the Legends in the Spiritual Universe. He has left a mark many centuries ago and his words, influence, leadership skills and mindfulness has lead the Israelite people out of Egypt and paved a path that many still celebrate.

Moses was born in Egypt and his parents had to hide him as a baby,as a order to murder all male babies was put out from the King. His mother who was totally heart broken with the command, made a basket and placed him in it and left him by the river to float away where no one can see him.

The king daughter saw the basket while having a bath commanded one of her maids to get the basket. To her surprise when she opened the basket she found a baby wrapped up in Hebrew linen, she was concerned for the baby as he was crying his eyes out. Moses sister who was standing watch, saw what was happening and offered her mother to be the nurse as she still has breast milk. The princess wanted to keep the baby and so she did, she named him Moses and raised him as her own.

Moses grew up and became a strong, courageous leader, who was destined to be powerful but in his heart he kept his teachings from his mother. Who was his care taken while growing up, he has no idea at the time she was his mother, as she never told anyone when she got the job.

At the time the Israelites was enslaved and being treated badly by the king. Moses saw this and it pinched his heart. He had a good heart, he always stood up for justice and this never went well with many in the castle. This eventually got him thrown out , when he got in a fight with a guard and ended up killing him. Moses was banished from the kingdom and thrown in the desert to fend for himself. He eventually found another family and stayed with them for many years.

One day while walking he saw a light and walked up the mountain to see a burning bush. He was totally amazed by this, and ask himself how this can be burning and haven’t reach the ground as yet.

Meanwhile, God called to him and he was astonished. God spoke to him and told him about the people of Isreal suffering. Moses was held back and scared but God ashore him he will be with him. God gave him guidance and assurance that he will be with him all threw the journey.

Moses set out for his journey and heading back to the castle to confront the king. When he arrived he requested for his people to be released. The king continually denied his request after countless sufferings that was brought to his own people. Unfortunately, his hardening of heart has made him absent to the request.

The Isralites was beginning to complain, they didn’t believe in him in the beginning. This was because they was being put to work harder by the king and their suffering was increased tremendously.

Moses sent numerous request for them to be released. The king never listened although his own people was suffering. God send many signs to let him change his mind,from the water in the ocean turning to blood, lice infecting the place with all the crops and food stock dying, hailstorm, locus, frogs and sores. The king refused to release the people and was very bitter about what was happening.

The last straw had come and God was sending death to the city. Every first born male would be dead. The Isralites prepared for this night by having lamb for dinner. They put the lamb blood on their doors as the blood of the lamb will save them from death that was about to pass.

Each Isralite followed this as they believed in God message. The night passed and those including the king who did not have the blood of the lamb by their doors, first son was dead. The screams and anguish was heard all over the city, people was in tears, women was moaning the loss of a son.

The next day the king called Moses, he was totally heart broken because he lost his only son. He told him to leave immediately and take his people with him because he didn’t want to upset their God anymore.

From that day forward the Isralites celebrated their victory as the day would always be remembered to them. That day was celebrated and called the Passover as that day was marked as a time to celebrate their freedom from the Egyptians. They was in total joy as they were free from slavery and ready to head to the land their fathers and ancestors left for them.

Moses was a courageous man, who became a leader and paved a new path for the people of Isreal. He never lost hope or faith, he is one of the many Spiritual Legands who made a mark in this world.

His work and his teachings will be remembered for eternity. He was a little boy who was about to be killed . In the end he was able to get his people freed and each year the Passover is celebrated in remembrance of this historical event.

Much love everyone.

Want my secret to curing depression. It is no pill, no drug or therapist visits. It is an addiction called Soca music. Well let me start by saying without Soca, I would not know how to come out of a sad funk.

There are so many genres of music that is well put together but there is non like soca music. This music is from my beautiful country of Trinidad. The land of Carnival that is happening from now until the first week of March with Carnival Monday and Tuesday to put the icing on the cake.

My love for Carnival,Soca music and playing mas is one everyone who reads this and never experience has to embrace. It is one of the most freeing moments you can feel in your life. Trust me people the vybes is absolutely memorizing.

I would touch a little on two Trinidadian female soca artists that I have been listening to for many years. These two strong, independent, creative and influential women have been in the industry for many years. Over the years they have evolved in many ways and today I will give you a little background on each one.

I will start with Nadia Batson. December born Nadia began singing and writing at the age of 8. Nadia Batson who is now a singer, songwriter, and producer gained her fame when she was the runner up in the Power Category of the International Soca Monarch in 2007.

Nadia Batson joined Kes the Band in 2005 and became the leading female vocalist to the band. She toured around the world with the band and in 2011, Nadia departed Kes the Band.

Today Nadia is one of the many female soca artists that has been around for many years. Releasing songs each Carnival and around the year to keep her fans in tune with her music.

Some of my all time favorite songs of her is Manager released in 2013, catching feelings in 2018 and this year so long. All her songs are very catchy and you won’t be disappointed with her tracks.

Fayann Lyons, a female champion in the Soca music industry has been around for a while now. With many titles under her belt and known as Superblue daughter, has acquired three Trinidad and Tobago Road March and Groovy Soca Monarch Championship. She has won these in 2003, 2008 and 2009, Fayann Lyons has left her shining mark in the industry for sure.

Wife of Bunji Garlin, another Soca music champion, mother and a phenomenal artist is a member of her husband band Asylum. Songwriter of her music, Fayann has learned this from her father who has won the Road March title 9 times and Soca Monarch title 7 times. She was groomed from a young age to be a champion in this industry as she learned from one of the best.

Fayann compositions have earned her several nominations and awards from the Copyright Music Organisation of Trinidad and Tobago including female songwriter of the year and has many others from the Soca Awards organizations.

Some of my all-time favorites from her are Display( 2003 ), Get on ( 2008 ), Meet Super Blue ( 2009), Raze (2015) and this year Feel Good.

Soca music has been around since I can remember. It is the life of Carnival, it is the heart and soul of Trinidadians. We love our music but it is the feeling that makes this music so special. You would surely be winning as we say, in your seats. These two artists are very unique in there own way and making a mark in the industry today.

Much love everyone. Hope everyone enjoys a little Soca music today.

 

We all have to start somewhere. Make that decision today to start. Once you have the will you would find a way to start. If you are in a position in your life you do not like, do something about it. Don’t just sit and expect it to change without the push and challenge.

A lot of successful people didn’t get success overnight. They work their ass off to get where they are now. Don’t settle, don’t just take what is handed to you and be comfortable. The biggest mistake we make is being comfortable and just letting life pass by. Take that trip, start that business, move or tell that special someone you love them. Don’t be scared and hold yourself back. Life is meant to be lived to the fullest embrace it and smile.

Wonders would happen around you. When that decision is made to come out your comfort zone, to take up that challenge and have a leap of faith without fear.

What is stopping you other than you? When you have breath and life, tomorrow is never promised so make that change today. Do yourself that favor for yourself and just start.

It will be worth it in the end.
