Classic***messymandella***Remembrance Of The Spiritual Life With Janet Jackson***messymandella***

   

 

          In our society if you are single on Valentine’s Day, you are a failure according to the diamond companies, Hallmark and commercialism of Valentine’s Day.  If you do not receive  an abundance of materialistic presents on Christmas, then you may feel inclined to lie about everything you received. More gifts, means you have more loved? People assume that after a funeral that you are gone. In the casket, it is a shell of that person and even though you may not be able to hug or talk to them, they are not spiritually gone. Your spirit and energy doesn’t die, just the shell of your former self, you still have that person and you can feel when their is an indication that your loved one is still loving you, looking over and protecting you.

        It was a story of a man that entered a home and was about to burglarize and assault a woman but he ran away. The police did eventually located the fleeing burglar, but asked him, “Why did you run?” He told the police,”Because of those two men standing behind her.” Later they asked the lady about the two men that were there and she was puzzled because she was by herself the entire day. NO ONE was there,or so she thought… 

        We don’t leave this world, and you can be confident in knowing what ever you believe about the spiritual world,realize people can share connections even if they never have met. If energy doesn’t die, and the spirit doesn’t die then your loved ones are still here in spirit. NO, not like a ghost town or anything like that, but a spirit that will give you strength when you feel you are alone.

         You can feel their energy hovering around you and just understand that you will behold their smile again and you will have a opportunity to hear them laugh again. They are fully aware of your bereavement, but they are no longer in anguish and unrest, we are the ones that suffer,now.     

             If the connection is that strong you know that their presence is not far behind you and you can feel their love around you. You may be devastated in this point of time, but their spirit is dancing in the moonlight, so just try to dry some of those tears and don’t hold on to blame, mistrust, or arguments that were never resolved. They are still here,even if you don’t recognize your loved ones presence they are still smiling back at you.

 

Nelson Mandela: Our “Madiba” Tribute With Love ***messymandella***

Nelson Mandela lived behind bars 27 years, to break boundaries for us!

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela

 

Yes, of course we are sad. But it’s like when your grandfather passes away, we celebrate their life work and we smile and we dance. We do this for him even more,” Celina Makoba told me as she clapped her hands to the traditional music that has transformed the street in front of Mandela’s home into a festival.”-people of Johannesburg

“Do not judge me by my successes. Judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” Nelson Mandela

 

Unsung Model And First Black Cover Girl, Lana Ogilvie***messymandella***

          I would flip through magazines growing up and blossoming into a petite little woman with a colossal personality, and noticed someone too intriguing and confident for further description at that moment.

         While striving and demanding equal right are important to leave your mark, even if unsung by the greatest, her legacy has proof and she deserves her acknowledgement for not only involving her body  just her nude Instigram photos every other day,  to become “famous!”

           We are more than that just  how are thighs are and how much are body can be shown for people who don’t deserve a peek at it. Our appearances are only a miniscule block  of the foundation that composes our existence, and makes you that woman you will become and you will regret the time you wasted, on the superficial. You have the right to love your body, but there is so much more than that, you could be advertising on-line.

I already made my mind of what Gorgeous meant, and who was the fashionable woman who would be my fashion muse until I gazed at Lana.

           Once I left my high-end job of cooking chicken at Hardees and smelling like a chicken pit and covered with flour every other day;I still maintained my hair styles and kept my Cover Girl powder and wet and wild lipstick on stand by.
I would escape into my on world and buy myself three magazines with my Hardees check, because I was filthy rich. Yup, rolling in chicken flour and dough…

  Lana Ogilvie created a vast amount of opportunities for women of color,and she should be paid homage to buy every model of color.

Lana  still remains current in the model agency and as stunning as she was  over 20 years ago.

    Lana  has appeared in Mademoiselle, Essence, Sports Illustrated, Elle, Vogue, Glamour, and Harper’s Bazaar. She has also created her own  jewelry company,”Sabre.”

 

 

             We women must remember  those that were integral in our perspective as children. Every one that inspired you in the past are of course the reason and inspiration for the person you have become!

In this fashionable and ever-changing world, talent and class never can be forgotten and self-respect and inspiration should be celebrated.

Don’t Forget About Kyam Livingston, Oscar Grant, And Eric Garner All Died While In Police Custody.***messymandella***

Kyam

This is a letter I received from the family of Kyam. They had a march on 21st and I was not able to come but I wanted them to know they were in my thoughts and prayers with LOVE!


Thank you for telling the story of my relative, Kyam Livingston. Our family understands that medical neglect as a form of punishment in our city’s holding pens is nothing new.

That’s why, in addition to demanding justice for Kyam we are asking for changes in the arraignment process and in the inhumane and filthy conditions in central booking holding cells.

To that end, we are having a Community Speakout on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 6 p.m. at the Flatbush Reformed Church, 890 Flatbush Avenue (at Church Avenue), in Brooklyn, NY.

If you are an organizer and you are concerned about how citizens (mainly citizens of color) in NY are treated as they wait to see if they will even be charged with any crime, please join us.

If you have been through the arraignment process and have a story to tell us about your experience or an experience you witnessed while in central bookings, we urge you to come before your elected officials and tell your story.

For more information about this event, email us at Justice4Kyam@gmail.com.The restraining order only said that Kyam couldn’t be drinking or arguing loudly with her grandmother in the home the two women shared.

Kyam had been out at a birthday party for her boyfriend on that Saturday night and had a few drinks. She came into the apartment to shower and go back out again.

When she came into the apartment there was a VERBAL DISAGREEMENT between her and her grandmother over a remote control she was accused of breaking.

The argument ENDED and Kyam went in to take her shower.

When she got out of the shower there were two officers from the local precinct there to arrest her for allegedly having violated the restraining order.

The allegations that she went buck wild and destroyed property are hearsay.

The allegations that Kyam was alcoholic are also hearsay.

Kyam never had a chance to tell her side of the story in court because she was executed by the police prior to coming before a judge.

However, her mom, Ms. Anita Neal, was on the phone with Kyam during the entire incident (and can prove it) and has explained the other side of the story.

 

Oscar Grant

Innocent bystanders knew that Johannes Mehserle and the other BART Lynching team members , were under no circumstances dealing with a man who was resisting arrest. The officer defiantly and criminally created more of a mental segregation of police and ethnic men in this society. 

           Thankfully for cellular phone footage; the  life of Oscar Grant and his legacy  will  be remain untarnished . Oscar  has a daughter that will one day watch this video, and realize that no one can flip  flop this story.  Her father is not to  blame, The  police mans’ defense,  was a travesty and no accident, and there is not a reason in hell, or any other justification for her daddy’s  death.  We need atonement  and  ACTION!

       Her father, Oscar Grant III died  innocently and in a racist  nature that reminds us just because we believe in unity, some of us will never embrace all races and backgrounds. Urban men and police have this fine line, and it will always get crossed. No matter the action,  the officer will get a slap on the wrist, while urban men are getting a casket door closed above their heads.

Eric

It is evident he is already dead on the ground, but instead of admitting they murdered Erin Garner on the sidewalk, they have an impromptu conversation, and give the world  guilty banter to appear naive of what they  just did…

Killing a grandfather in broad daylight with absolutely no reason, and still making it home for dinner. Hit, withholding breathing room tackling and chocking moves while Eric obviously could not breathe. No need to call the ambulance. Their mission was complete. It was time to call the coroner and they knew it and now the entire world knows the outcome. Police protection should not send you to the Coroner’s office.

Don’t Let Fear Destroy Your Destiny!***messymandella***

 I started this site to express myself.

I have so many parts of me including love art, music, and laughter. I thought about what my friends and family would say about ***messymandella.com.*** I know that when I told people I had this site,  it would be confusion. I have only been doing this for a year. I don’t know what will happen in the future? I just know that national sites link my articles.

 

 I just knew that at first I wanted to prove to myself that I could do anything.

After I realized I could, I decided to connect with other artist and free thinkers.

MY people know  that I purposely change punctuation and verbiage because ART HAS NO RULES.

Some people laughed, or dismissed it as being crazy, or dumb.

Every writer, actor, or artist will tell you that the last people who support you are your own people.

I knew it was a joke to some people then  you get recognition. You look around and your life has completely changed, and you did it your way.

Don’t be afraid, a wise but crazy man stated, “Danger is Real, fear is in your mind.”

You will never know if you don’t embark  on that journey to find you. 

 

 I knew that there were stories that would never get told.

I also had to set so much time aside to get started, but with love and dedication hood heros, ill begotten and victims will have their say.

I know also that when I thought people had my back  some just left me stranded.

 I think the hurt is the motivation to keep going.

Don’t let anyone make you think that the problem is you, or question your artistic style.

 You can’t be free, until you are comfortable with yourself. 

There is nothing wrong with you if you spend your day listening to Wu-TangKate BushNas, and  Ray Lamontagne.

Don’t worry about close minded people.

You just have to live, and a leave a positive legacy.

If you lay under your covers, scared of the world that is your fault!

Nothing comes from just dreaming, and hoping. Actions  and positive energy have to combine.

Be You!

Keep Going!

Thank You for linking and loving me.

I love y’all for advice, respect and truth.

It means so much to me, that you except me, for being me!

I say “love” because “You are beloved” by me and every moment on this Earth is a blessing.

Enjoy your time here and think about your growth, and follow the golden rule and you will live a better way. Never compromise your artistic freedom out of fear of backlash. Just tell them to kiss your ass. Here is some inspiration from the late great FRANK.

Really what do you see
When you looking at me?
See me come up from nothing,
To me living my dreams
I done been to the bottom,
I done suffered a lot,
I deserve to be rich,
Headed straight to the top
Look how I ride for the block,
Look how I rep for the hood,
I get nothing but love now
When I come through the hood
Getting this fortune and fame
Money make all of us change
The new benz is all white,
Call it John McCain
How the hell could you stop me?
Why in the world would you try?
I go hard forever,
That’s just how I’m designed,
That’s just how I was built
See the look in my eyes?
You take all of this from me,
And I’m still gon’ survive
You get truth from me,
But these rappers gon’ lie
I’m a part of these streets
Till the day that I die
I wave hi to the haters,
Mad that I finally done made it
Take a look and you can tell
That I’m destined for greatness…
