Black Consciousness is rising all over America, especially in Charleston, SC. God’s people has been crying out from lack of knowledge and empowerment ever since they arrived in the 1600’s. Only a few know that Jamestown, VA, and Charleston, SC is where most of the first Africans were shipped to for slavery. Just because we were born into slavery doesn’t mean we have to die in slavery.

Power Event


That’s exactly why I must share my first experience attending an African consciousness event on April 8, 2017, in Moncks Corner, SC. It was called the Paradigm Shift: Mind, Body, and Soul hosted by Afrikan Konciousness Koalition. This event was mindblowing. There were lyricist artist performances by Yasser Ase and Kween Katt. Their performance lyrics was the epitome of raising awareness to our people about respect and love for one another. It reminded me that we are all Kings and Queens.

The vendors provided knowledge, resources, and tools about using natural products without all the chemicals that are bad for our skin and body. One vendor that stuck out to me was about Holistic health and Foods by Chef Shekira Levins. She helped me realized that eating a lot of fast food and processed foods are harming our mind, body, and spirit. I was so touched by her funny, powerful speech, I went on a meat fast for five days. There was even free food provided for everyone. Dj Nynjah was on the 1’s and 2’s giving the people fun, clean music as we waited for the Keynote speaker of the evening.

When we thought it couldn’t get any better, that’s when the keynote speaker Mr. Derrick Grace II came on stage. Many know him from the Facebook video that went viral of his intelligent children speaking great knowledge at a very young age. I can honestly say they are the smartest children I have met in my lifetime so far. Derrick sat down and gave a lecture that would change you and your children’s life forever. I was so honored to take in all his knowledge, we didn’t realize three hours had passed by. I highly recommend buying his book, Unlearn and Relearn: Child Curriculum Vol 1. You can do so by going to

The Afrikan Konciousness Koalition hosted this liberating event to re-educate Black people on healthy living, natural products and educating our youth. I didn’t realize how much awareness I would gain by attending this powerful event.

A big shout goes to Candace Pringle, Anita Pringle, Trena Bryant, Jessica Gathers and Pastor Cleo and Co-Pastor Ronald Pringle for putting together such a loving, positive event for the community. I felt so much love and hospitality from the moment I arrived. I’m looking forward to attending many more of their events in the future.





Emotional Guidance to Success

Catrina’s Emotions

“Whether you say emotions kill or give life, you are Right!”

1108151455_HDRCatrina Latrice Williams have found a technique to help you transition to the next level of success through emotional guidance. After evaluating her transitions in life from a toddler into late 20’s, she realized she made a lot of wrong emotional decisions. For example, when things did not go her way, she would feel let down or not good enough. Have you ever felt that way?
Ms. Williams also took multiple medications due to cancer survival as a young child which also added more side effects. Just about anything hurt Catrina’s feelings during her childhood. There were times she became stressed due to lack of emotional wisdom.

Did Emotions kill her or Give her life?

It was a challenging life for Catrina emotionally because she did not know what she didn’t know. She was living based on what she learned consciously and unconsciously in your young life. Catrina got an “AHA” moment one day that she was destined to live a prosperous life. It took almost 30 years of her life. She felt like she was living in hell. Her emotions influenced her to curse people which in to return was cursing herself. She always had a strong mind but she didn’t know how to control her emotions. No. Emotions didn’t kill Catrina but it killed her chances of living a happy, prosperous, healthy and wealthy life. What now?

What is Emotions?

Catrina Latrice Williams will guide you to a place called success through the power of emotions, thought and action. First let’s understand more about Emotions. Based on Catrina’s understanding, emotions is a short word for energy and motion. It’s gives off a certain vibration in your spirit. Pastor Mesiti from Australia favorite phrase is to ask God to shift the mind, touch the Heart and increase finances in my life. Your mind is a vibration. Your heart is another vibration and so is money. If your energy and motion for each of these devices is not in perfect harmony, you will get negative result. To make it sound better you may get unexpect results that is not in your favor.
According to Google, emotion involves feeling, thinking, activation of the nervous system, physiological changes, and behavioral changes such as facial expressions. Weather you know it or not, you have full authority over your emotions. After researching further, I found that human behaviour is broken down into basic emotions. According to research by Glasgow University, study has challenged a commonly-held belief that there are six basic emotions of happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust. Catrina used to be a victim to being naive, timid, fearful, angry, cruel which it added struggles and challenges in everyday life. Catrina used to complain, cry, and attract negative behavior in her life unconsciously.
