No Shows This Week!

Hey all!

I decided to not have any shows this week. I will resume next week.

Since this is a holiday week, I was going to do the feminism
show today and not do a show on Thanksgiving, but I have decided to take the entire Thanksgiving week off from the show.

I'll update the blog with info on next week's shows. I may even change the time of the shows as well. 

So much going on right now!

Peace & blessings!

Miss Representation

Hello all!

I'm glad you joined me for yesterday's broadcast at 5pm EST on the topic of the documentary "Miss Representation."

"Miss Representation" is a documentary that was written, produced, and narrated by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, whose name I could not remember on yesterday's show. The documentary first aired on television on the OWN Oprah Winfrey Network the week of October 16th 2011. 

If you'd like to catch the documentary check your local listings of the OWN channel to see when it's coming on again, invite some your besties and have a screening and a discussion forum afterwards. Make a party of it.

This documentary is all about how girls and women are misrepresented in the media - all types of media - music, videos, movies, news, television shows, and politics. Check it the site. Click HERE

It expressed views from a diverse group teenage girls and boys and women - well-known and general public. I shared my favorite touching moments from the documentary on the radio show. 

I also talked about the importance of communication about our feelings as women and particularly, listening to the teenage girls around you and pay attention to what they really saying through their behaviors and attitudes.

Open lines of communication is the key here.

Check out the broadcast in the archives on this site or click HERE

Join me next Tuesday 11/22/11 for the topic "What is Feminism?".  I will share my thoughts and resources on feminism and why I think it's important to embrace this philosophy nowadays. 

Many blessings to you all!

Remember - Socrates said, "An unexamined life is not worth living."  Talk about your experiences, share your life with others, and listen to what others are saying to you.

Peace & blessings!

New Show & Announcement

Hello everyone,

Today's show was short and to the point. I started off with reiterating Jennifer's loving departure from the show and went on to discuss to the new energy surrounding Soul SiSTARs from this day forward.

One of my passions as a woman of color has been to contribute to the well-being in some way or another to girls and women all over the world. Therefore, I decided to use the radio show for this purpose.

I had an embarrassing, somewhat scary moment right in the middle of talking on the show while walking down Main street. A huge dog ran towards a fence barking at me. It startled me and all that was caught on the radio. Oh well! I'm alive. The dog is alive.  It's all good.

The regular show gets started again on Thursday 11/17/11 @ 11am EST.  I will be talking about a very moving documentary that I watched on OWN called Miss Representation about the images of girls and women in the media. 

Next Tuesday, I'll be giving an overview of feminism and my thoughts on it as a necessity these days to help raise awareness of the needs of all females and the consciousness of all girls and women. 

Of course, next Thursday on the 24th it's Thanksgiving. So I will not be doing a show at all. I will be feasting like all of you.

Peace & blessings to you. Tune in this coming Thursday morning!

Updates & 11-11-11 Shifting Gears

Hello all!

Today I started the show for 11/10/11 with some updates. First of all, Jennifer Wardlaw will no longer be a part of the Soul SiSTARS radio show.  She is moving on her path to something different. So let's wish her well and send her lots of light and healing energy as she moves forward on her path.

Today's show was a tricky one because I have studied lots of info on 11-11-11 and what I felt guided to talk about today was more about the angelic perspective of the numbers and the metaphor I believe it stands for.

The Universe is always sending us reminders about where we should be on our individual and collective paths. 

Keep in mind that the number 1 is about oneness, union (unity), and wholeness. From an angelic perspective, 1 or 11 is about paying close attention to our thoughts as they manifest our desires more quickly than ever before as of late.

So when you put all that together it makes for an interesting, yet obvious conclusion.  Find out what I discovered about this 11-11-11 phenomena in the archives of the show.  Click HERE

I will be working on changing the focus somewhat for Soul SiSTARS to more female-related topics and more creativity-related topics as well.  I am embracing this opportunity to do some work to encourage and empower myself and other girls and women to shine their lights in the world.

Please stay tuned for these fun changes to Soul SiSTARS!  In the meantime, I will be back next Thursday @ 9am EST, where my topic will be "Miss Representation."

Peace & many blessings. Thank you for being so supportive of us and walking with us throughout the changes on the show!

ONE love!

Aligning with Your Authentic Self through Prayer

On yesterday's show (11/3/11), I spoke with Rev. Diane Scribner-Clevenger from Pray Attention Ministries. We had a wonderful conversation on prayer and how to use it effectively.

Prayer is another form of meditation and Diane shared her experience and unwavering focus on sharing the importance of affirmative prayer, especially in today's world.

She was inspired by the Biblical scripture in 1 Thessaloanians 5:17, which says, "Pray without ceasing." She discussed the metaphysical interpretation of this holy text. 

I asked her questions such as:

  • What is prayer?
  • What would she tell people who has never prayed before?
  • What about people who are frustrated due to the economic issues we're facing?
...and much more.

Please go check out the archived broadcast @ http://www.blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars or click the link on this blog to listen to it.

I'd like to share two prayers that have brought me a lot of comfort over the years.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I can not change.
The courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Prayer of Protection (Unity Church)

The light of God surrounds me,
the love of God enfolds me,
the power of God protects me;
and the presence of God watches over me.
Wherever I am, God is and all is well.

Please join Jennifer and I next week on 11/10/11 as we talk about Twin Flames and the 11-11-11 Gateway @ 9am EST.  Peace & blessings!
