The Vehicles To Change


Some time ago I began to understand that I was purposed to be an Inspirationalist; an agent for self-love, self-growth, and change. The platform and ideas the creator would give to me later became vehicles to be used to empower the world to change, build, and grow.

In early 2015 I began to plant seeds into two creative ideas that my spirit was undoubtedly passionate for. One was to create a network of everyday people that would inspire the world to change and transform through their undeniable gifts. Recently I realized that this passion had started long ago. As a young adult I had always been a person of inspiration from the loving words of encouragement to loved ones that I’d give, to becoming an adult and writing books, posts or articles that would question others to delve inside themselves; many of which I would pose through social media. The vehicles began to grow as a strategic plan came from within to construct an internet TV network called The Live Network through a company I would start called Elevation Nation Media Group.  That however was not the beginning though. Through starting a company in 2011 called Scriblical Vibez Publishing, it became apparent that I be intentional about publishing the works of inspirational and transformational authors who dared to scribe with a certain type of vibe.  From SVP a masterful, organic company called Eyeology INC was bornEyeology INC is the glue to both Scriblical Vibez Publishing and Elevation Nation Media Group. It seeks to serve the authentic tribe of gifts used to populate both companies in unique and innovative ways. Eyeology INC assists in the building of The Live Network from a branding, coaching, marketing and promotions stand point to a media based platform that would allow for a visual component to boost the reach of each individual or brand through content driven shows, shorts, commercials, video profiles, documentaries, and movies.

This fall Elevation Nation Media Group presented to the world the first of two of its inspired developments in late October called “Conversations With Kai Mann” and “Ready Set Flow”. Conversations With Kai Mann, an internet talk show that bridges the gaps in society by conversing with today’s thought leaders, spiritual leaders, transformational speakers, authors, artists, movement shakers, and moment takers. This unique show places light out into the world by speaking with guests whose lives have transformed in inspirational ways.

 

Ready Set Flow another inspired development, is a poetic gumbo of sorts, created to highlight and expose the brilliancy and energy behind some of today’s talented poetic voices while bringing awareness to what’s happening poetically in the beautiful city of Detroit. To show that the city is filled with creative geniuses whose genius is sometimes overshadowed by how its portrayed in the media. This season introduces you to ten phenomenal poets, talented wordsmiths and spoken word artists whose powerful Spoken Word Artistry, mind blowing metaphors, and Uniquely delivered pieces incites a ‘Movement’. This ‘Movement’ begins in Detroit and is scheduled to soon capture poetry in every major city in the U.S. To watch these shows you can tune in by logging on to http://www.watchthelivenetwork.com/.

where there is LIGHT


where there is LIGHT

there is LOVE

there is warmth

a safe space

a time of healing

comes from light

energy focused on

shedding the old

to get to the new

we get distracted

just as we’re about to

see a bit of light

keep going

into the light

Evolve Stretch Grow

to get to the next Dimension

the funny part is

we’ve all got to go

or we’re not going to

make it

alone

Don’t be distracted by what

you’re uncomfortable with

fearful of

there’s no such thing

that can overtake you

open up to the light

let it in

illuminate your heart

show through

your skin

resonate in your being

and allow

others the same

walk in light

in peace

where there is LIGHT

there is LOVE

#KaiologyInk

 

That’s how you do it


We didn’t finish our love story

Somewhere as it was unfolding

I let go

I thought I was ready

I understand that this is what

this season is for

getting back to you

I think I’m falling in love

with you

Slowly

intently

without even really knowing it

I’m falling in love with you

Gently

you made me love you

showing yourself to me

revealing me to me

Opening my heartstrings up wide

for all to see

I don’t even care

but that’s how you do it don’t you

 

Afraid


In the past

I’ve been afraid

Afraid to say “I need more”

thinking that you’d

think I was weak

Been afraid to be ‘happy’

thought I didn’t

deserve it

not really

I never said it

to myself

at least not out loud

but all of my

actions said so

carrying old wounds

scars

bruises

and

bites

like a wounded SOULjah

Every piece of negativity

stuck to me

but I wouldn’t

allow myself

to feel it

so I wore it

like a badge of HONOR

today I’m scraping off

dead skin

and picking sores

I know it sounds gross

it is

I’m letting myself

feel

and

deciding what I

want to do with that emotion

by evoking some

personal healing

“Heal thyself”

is all I

can think

of

it’s not easy though

you have to tell on

yourself

to yourself

be HONEST

and deal from a different

level

you gotta open yourself

more than you ever

have

checking with you

to see how you

feel

so you don’t

get lost

Been lost

a lot

too old for that

don’t have

long enough

for it

either

But I  now choose

“Happy”

I remind myself when I forget. ~ KaiologyInk

in every

language

the upper Eschelon

of ALL

things

great

and Small

do add

up

I hold your hand

in all that

you do

wish you well

a gentle

kiss

upon your forehead

Go get em’

Lioness

you are PROVERBS 31

in its totality

brought to me

in true

reality

you are

all

that one could

HOPE

for

or ever

DREAM

God had to have done

this

the Sweet Spot


I just want to get to the Sweet Spot

but you can’t get there

without ‘growing’ through

the rough patches

life…boy,

sometimes my Heart

gets full

I want to get it

right

so bad

and when I don’t

I want to retreat

but I’m trying

so hard to do

something

different

even with things testing

my resolve

needless to say

I get some right

and I get

some

wrong

but I told myself

I’ma keep trying

something in me won’t

let me go

pull the covers up

over my head

like I know

the Sweet Spot

is close

Do you think that too?

Radical Transformation


Shifting isn’t always easy…

It is not easy to change

you have to be in agreement

with it

in order

to do so

otherwise it’s a fight

to the death

but even when you’re in

agreement

sometimes the nakedness

of the change

effects you like cool air

when you’re not feeling

warm & fuzzy

but you want to

be naked

because you know

that the level of

transformation

you’re looking to get

takes radical

change

and a willingness

to be open

and

naked

when it doesn’t feel

so comfortable
