You Can’t Do It Alone

You Can’t Do It Alone

You can’t do it all alone…

No one can. At some point you’re going to need help for one reason or another.

And with that help, you can propel your life to a whole new level.

If you’re feeling stuck, or lost, or alone, I hope what I’m saying sinks deep in your soul. I’m speaking to you with full confidence based on what my spiritual journey continues to teach me.


As you know, my book, Meditations Across The King’s River: African-Inspired Wisdom For Life’s Journey, will be published in a few weeks, in early December.

Looking back at the journey of this book, I realize my ancestors sent key people to help and inspire me at strategic points along the way.

One of them is Omitola, and she’s one of the characters you’ll get to meet and learn from in my book. Omitola has a degree in Cultural Resistance.

She also happens to be an activist.

I met her in Guadeloupe in December, 2016. I went there to do a spiritual ceremony for her, and she introduced me to her culture. Going to Guadeloupe and meeting her was the catalyst for this book.

After my visit, it became clear to me exactly how I wanted to write the book. Without Omitola’s help, Meditations Across The King’s River would be a different book. I’m grateful my ancestors allowed us to meet when we did.

I can’t tell you who will come into your life, or when, or even why…

But I know someone will come at some point.

Some of the people that will help you fulfill your destiny might already be in your life — but it takes time for the ancestors to set things up and manifest them on a spiritual level.

Divine timing is a powerful force, and it’s very real. Divine timing is playing out in your life right this very instant. Don’t worry about the big picture; it will be revealed to you when the time is right.

The most important thing you can do right now is:1. Follow your inspiration wherever it leads. 2. Be dedicated to your dream. 3. Don’t allow others or life to distract you from the path you feel inspired to walk.

In order for others to commit to helping you, the first person you must convince to get on board is yourself. When others sense your commitment and determination, in time the right folks will step aboard.

That’s what continues to happen for me. The journey toward a more fulfilling and empowering life isn’t just for some of us — it’s for all of us. I hope you are open to it,  and I am here to support you.

I promised I would be in touch each week until we launch this book and I intend to keep my promise. Each day brings us closer and closer to the publication of Meditations Across The King’s River.

If you respond to this blog, I will definitely write you back.

Sending you warm thoughts and good energy. I look forward to connecting with you again soon.

Yes, You Have A Soulmate!

Yes, You Have A Soulmate!

I believe you have a soulmate…

In fact, I think most people have more than one soulmate. If you haven’t met them yet, one day you probably will.

I’ve been thinking about soulmates a lot lately, because my book, Meditations Across The King’s River: African-Inspired Wisdom For Life’s Journey, will be published in a few weeks, in early December.

My wife, Stephanie, my soulmate, has been helping me get the book ready. She used to work as an editor for Essence Magazine before we met. She also worked as an editor for Parenting Magazine when we later moved to California.

Back in the day with Stephanie, Malcolm and Tulani

Like most couples, we’ve had our share of ups and downs over the years…

Stephanie helped launch my career as a writer back on St.Croix when I was in my twenties. That’s where we got married, and that’s where the family pic in this newsletter was taken.

Lately, as we spent hours and hours reviewing and tweaking every chapter of this book, I’ve come to the realization that this is part of the reason why the ancestors brought us together in the first place.

Not only were we destined to have children together, we were destined to bring Meditations Across The King’s River into the world together, too — it just took decades for it to happen.

I believe there’s a divine reason behind the soulmate or soulmates in your life, too. Sure, It’s not easy to believe there’s a divine purpose in your relationship/s when things get rocky.

But trust me — your soulmate or soulmates didn’t wander into your life accidentally. You are meant to help each other grow, discover new things, become better in some way.

A soulmate isn’t always a romantic connection. Some of my soulmates are friends and business partners. And guess what — at times those connections have been challenging too. But good things have come out of those connections – beautiful things – but none of it happened overnight

So don’t be so quick to give up on your soulmate, whether it’s a spouse, a friend, a co-worker or a business partner. Sometimes, things happen for reasons beyond human understanding.

Hang in there…

What isn’t clear to you now will be clear later. The ancestors see the bigger picture. In time, you will too.

I’ve got to run because we are finalizing things on the book . It will be ready for you very soon. We are both very excited. If you respond to this blog, I will definitely write you back.

You matter to me…

Thinking of you and your loved ones as we get ready to launch Meditations Across The King’s River.

I’ll Be Launching My Book Soon

I’m excited to tell you that I will be launching my book soon…

Meditations Across The King’s River: African-Inspired Wisdom For Life’s Journey, will be published later this month, or in early December at the very latest.

I will provide more details in a series of emails that you’ll receive in the upcoming weeks.

As I mentioned before, Meditations Across The King’s River is a collection of inspirational affirmations, but it also includes 16 essays inspired by my travels in Africa and throughout the Caribbean as a priest in the Ifa spiritual tradition.

But there’s more…

To support you in 2019, every month I’ll expand on a core idea in the book and will also share other insights that I did not have time to include in the book. I believe these insights will help you navigate through 2019 with more confidence and peace of mind no matter what spiritual tradition you practice.

If you’re struggling with something right now, have faith and just know there’s a solution for it — even if you can’t see it at the moment. I’ll be sharing a lot of tips in my book and in the months ahead.

I am grateful you are in my life and that our paths have crossed. Please reach out to me if you have any questions. I’ll be in touch with you again very soon.

All my love

Talk soon,
