About GirlrillaVintage the Blog

vintage graced my bones before i ever knew what grace was. humility. mama shopped free. had us convinced that we made the clothes worth something; during a time when rocking rabbit fur and knitted hats in 4th grade could get you stomped out (schoolyard pizza lol). when all the kids had the latest (bk's, guess, reeboks, gold chains), mama glorified the ‪#‎handmedown‬, dark spots on bananas. took bleach and water to mothball and avon stink, her and the scrub-board worked it out. that's why i'm so girlrillavintage-girl real with her vintage. vintage was my first home on earth and it cost me nothing. gave me courage. taught me bout grace before i even knew who she was.

Circa 1997

I was 17 yrs young and never seized to find who I was back then. We were visiting my brother David at Devereaux and learned that he was a person living with schizophrenia the paranoid type. We asked so many questions. How beautiful, David tried to answer. Our love and strength during that time mirrored each other. ⁣

KA Energy

4BB59E16-6D67-4E5C-B4DB-C82D915010AC

Ancient Kemetism teaches us about the importance of Ka (life force) activation. How to vibrate higher, let go of denser energies and to join forces with our higher vibrational selves. There are 13 levels to this shit.⁣ Be of service to yourselves and research that. It’s been mind blowing to me this far.

I start my mornings with breath

I’m no expert on breath work. However, I start my mornings with breath to awaken my mind, calm my nerves, reduce stress, and to settle into my day. It’s something I look forward to each day. In the video I’m practicing Nadi Shodhana, one of many alternate nostril breathing techniques. ⁣Breathe y’all. Life won’t always be like this. ⁣

Thank you black yogis of Instagram for the introduction to @londrelle beautiful song, Morning Asana. It blessed me right on time! 🖤🤎🖤 ⁣⁣

My block was hot

Summers in Philly were hot as giraffe nuts lol! I remember the elders on our block turning on the water with a big wrench or how somebody would block the hose to make the water spray on us. Everybody was in the streets to cool off, even the hood dudes and drug dealers lol! That coupled with the water ice truck and soft pretzels (when everything was 50 cents), playing wall ball, double Dutch, man hunt, and racing each other as fast as we could around the block are the few good memories I cherish from my childhood. 🙏🏾 for this priceless 📸 from 1963 Blvck Vrchives. ⁣Brings back so many memories. ⁣

Soulmission: They dont need eyes to see you

Be encouraged to use this global time out to remove yourself from toxic people (family, friend or foe). A lot of these folks are energy vampires, pulling you away from your souls mission because they’re selfish and don’t want to lose you. Don’t want you to stop fulfilling their needs or working towards their legacy.

Far too long many of us have been “supporting actresses or actors” this whole time and now that we want to step into our full power folks are resenting that. They’re resenting that you no longer want to sit there and clap for just them. They see the opportunities coming your way and there’s a lot of gossip and chatter against your choices. Don’t be distracted. Don’t take it personal. Put yourself first. Everyone can’t come along on your journey. Be at peace with that, knowing you’re in-line with divine purpose. Building your life’s legacy. Remember, they don’t need eyes to see you.

Breaking generational curses

Working on making friends with my fears. Alchemising a really core, foundational-vibration of myself. Those underdeveloped. Scars no longer bleeding. Those vulnerable spaces. I’m learning that so much of it is familial. From my past. In my lineage. ⁣—Breaking generational curses⁣

Don’t crumble into a lump of sorrow

Remember, what is going to come will come. Don’t destroy your peace or crumble into a lump of sorrow and fear. Even down to your last breath.

Return to your natural state. No anxiety lives here. This is you. Calm center. Eternal. Beyond soul. Self. ⁣

Thank you. Thank you god. Thank you ancestors. Thank you universe. Thank you stillness. Thank you existence. Thank you clarity. Thank you calm. Thank you breath. Thank you scars. Thank you love. Thank you restoration. Thank you rest. Thank you death. Thank you earth. Thank you healing. Thank you…
