Latonya Swann



Surprise! Been growing this bundle of greatness for the last 7 months. I've been torn between sharing and keeping everything to myself because social media and pouring my energy outward just didn't seem as important as it once did and on the other hand I wanted to share how proud and grateful I am for this new journey. Additionally, I was blessed to work up until 5 months and refrained from posting since I have so many industry friends because I refused to let anybody besides myself decide what I could and couldn't do physically, what I would or wouldn't be capable of in the future, how it would or wouldn't effect my gift. Also felt like I owed it to myself and my unborn baby boy to really focus on my self. I've reevaluated a lot of things, shifted around priorities, gained more clarity in things as well as things that seemed clear to me before, certain goals and conceptions seem more fuzzy, less important to me now. I've focused on extracting the very best out of life and/or creating the paths that will lead me to be able to do the best extracting. Most importantly I've been STILL. Which is basically confronting one of my biggest fears. I've always been uncomfortable with stillness and unanswered questions. I've always looked to my next goal before fully appreciating the door I just knocked down. This pregnancy has forced me to be still. At times it felt dark, lonely, and confusing. At times I felt on top of the world. At times it felt like I was missing out on opportunities. At times it felt like I just booked the greatest job of all time. At times I wondered who I would be postpartum physically, mentally, emotionally.  As my body grows around my womb, as the industry keeps moving, as my mind runs a million miles a minute planning out and pondering the future, my soul has been still. It has allowed me to unlock deep seated feelings and sentiments that I never would've addressed before and I know that is the purpose of this chapter. Stillness has been one of the greatest gifts so far and I can't wait to meet my next greatest gift August 1st.

This is the year where what you love, what you're good at and what is lucrative should all meet up. I no longer plan to be held back by the #2016bestnine as 2017 arrives on the East Coast and sneaks up on the West Coast. Been avoiding all the cliches of the holiday season so the most important thing to me right now is to state just how grateful I am for everything that happened this year, good or bad, all the doors I knocked down, goals I crossed off, epiphanies that struck hard and brought many self discoveries. All the people who came in, touched my heart, and made this year special, all the memories I shared, all the firsts and lasts, even the people who are no longer in my life, all lessons. All the inspirations and depressions, ups, downs, in-betweens. And on top of all that just grateful for where I am right now, all the earthly stuff I have, the love and support I have, known or unknown, as well as my gifts. And now preparing for the many missions God sent me for 2017 so I can exceed expectations, move in silence, and overcome anything that is in my path. For me 2017 is the year for many moves, and little talk/distractions. So with that, I say Happy New Year. Cheers to the future. Be ready. #happynewyear #bye2016 #hey2017 #themission #noprisoners #godsplan #ascension #growth #action #realgsmoveinsilence #thetakeover #preparation #keys #love #peace #prosperity Black Swann. “Perfection is not just about control.

#quotes #ltquotes #motivation #foodforthought #blackswan #perfection #lettinggo #control #goddess #latonyaswann #ltswann #ltnya I'm balancing male and female energies this #supermoon . Balancing the hard exterior that develops in response to plight with the soft interior I was born with. Redirecting my energy to make sure I'm taking the most efficient and gratifying route to success. Supermoons in general shed the most intense light on our scars, bad habits, and discontent. Use this time to decide what you want in your life and let go of the things not conducive to your mission. #supermoon #motivation #fullmoon #transformation #healing #lovefullmoons #sexyluna #adrogynous #masculine #feminine #divinefeminine #goddess #astrology #astronomy #thirdeye #gemstones #ascension #Downtime by @Usher with me and @quitabee shot/edited by @qburdette .

But one resonates hard because it is my greatest fear. I believe in the non-western concept of karma. A positivity system not negativity.  Bad karma is not a punishment it's a contract. Westerners say dumb shit like people have a sucky life now because of choices they made in a past life. Not so true. Karma is about brownie points. Before you come back to your next lifetime you make a contact with your soul family, God, etc about how you're going to achieve your soul mission, who's gonna help you along the way, what type of major life disturbances happen to propel you into your next plane of consciousness to complete your mission.
So being wheelchair ridden for example is not punishment for a past life, it's a contract you have with yourself to gain some type of skill, or insight that will help you achieve your mission. Easy life is worth less karma points than a hard life so it's not a punishment it's a cheat code. Adversity is the biggest teacher and you registered for class, you didn't get sent to detention. Remember that

We say You know those dreams that fuck up your whole day. Yeah, fuck those dreams. Meditate its bitch ass away 
#nightmares #fuckyou #youaintreal #youwack #youtriedit #motivation #lol #dreams #meditation #rest My G, thank you for everything you have done, are doing, and will do in my life. Gratitude is key. Goal diggers tend to always focus on the next achievement, without taking the time to be present. I'm super guilty. Trying to stop and smell the favor. You should too.
