Star Readings: Iyanla Vanzant.

I'm here to help you do your work. That my friends is life coach and speaker Iyanla Vanzant's mission. She wants to feel but not just your wounds but she wants you to heal your wounds both inside and out. However, instead of taking a look at the people she helps. We're going to take a look at the woman behind the healer. One thing is for sure, her journey just like ours is just getting started.

Iyanla's Love Life

Now, I normally don't focus on this aspect of a person's life but for some reason. I'm begin told to do so. Iyanla is very much in love. In love with life. In love with her journey and in love with herself. Her partner gives her all that she needs and helps her to grow by nurturing and caring for her. Especially mentally. Iyanla is a thinker first, feeler second and actor third. So man who remains private for both of them not only gives her affection but allows her to breathe and just be. I also pick up that for her nature is a lover all it's own. Once she puts her feet on the ground or hears the birds sing. All becomes clear.

Iyanla's Health

Red hot mama! I know that may sound funny. However, when I focus on Iyanla's health that's how she feels. For the first time in a long time. In shape, well and in control. Smoothies, yoga and nutrition have become very important to her in the last 2-3 years. Along with watching her carbs and focusing more on fresh, organic produce. Which is why she's become more slimmer than normal. She also learned just let a lot of shit go. Now, she does workout but she's not a fanatic about it. At least 3 times a week and no running or nothing too heavy. I pick up that her health has gotten better because she has gotten better. You see, Iyanla is the kind of woman that once she gets what she needs she is off and flying. Stay hydrated girl, and learn to balance things one at a time and you tend to carry a lot of clutter in your head. Writing things down more often will certainly solve that problem.

Fix My Life

If we thought that the past 3 seasons of Fix My Life were something. We haven't seen anything yet! Iyanla is playing no games and no fucks will be given, She going to get deeper. Some may say even meaner but it will be the tough love that we need. That they need. She's going to tackle deeper issues and that will have both talking, crying and scratching our heads. I also pick up her taking a more active role in dealing with her guests on and off camera. This next season she will be nurturing but she will also mean business. I also pick up her doing more speaking and workshops around the country and coming with a more tell it like it is approach to certain things. There will be more books as well. 3-6 more. Her goal this year and beyond is to hold up that mirror even closer to not just your face but your soul. Especially when it comes to social injustice. There's so much wants to do, is doing and so much that we don't see.

Iyanla and Spirituality

The ancestors are calling and this time she not only listens. She honors. Iyanla knows that without her faith she could not and would not do what she is begin called to do. She also is begin to led to train others who like her on the same path. She wants to teach but only with those that truly want to learn. She has grown so much in the past 10 years that to tap into her spirit and her divine that is within her is like breathing. Prayer, emotion and music are just some of the ways that Iyanla connects with the divine. The reason she does her work is because she wants us to see and become the greatly divine people that we've always been, Quite time when there is no work to do is when the divine comes to her most and there's a great connection to her mother and grandmother. They speak with her via dreams. Along with her daughter. I also pick up her growing and developing her intuitive gifts more and they are becoming stronger. They been this way for the past 4 years but now, they've led her to where she needs to be and who she needs to help. That what makes fix my life so great, along with her staff. It's a divinely inspired show.

Thank You Iyanla, for helping us to feel, deal and heal. We love you!

Love, Leo Brown :)

Star Readings: Nikki Woods

A woman with a plan, a woman with a purpose, a woman on a mission! Producer, motivational speaker and coach Nikki Woods has lots to say and do. She wants to not only help those around her do better but know better. She seeks to empower everyone around her and to show them that whatever the circumstance there's always another, better and brighter way.

Nikki's Mission

Empowerment. If I could sum up nikki's mission in one word that would be it. There's so much that she wants to do and is going to do. I pick up speaking engagements, 2 more books and I also pick up her doing more mentoring within her community. She truly wants people to see their own potential and to live their truth with honesty. Nikki, thanks to you they are doing just that.

Nikki's Career

Wearing many hats. I don't know how she sleeps at night. In addition to her continuing to produce in the world of radio. I also pickup her doing a podcast. I see, that her writing is going to start to take center stage more as I feel that it gives her more freedom in terms of saying what she feels. I also pickup her maybe lunching a production company as she sees what's on our small screens and wants to change that. I pick up a great deal of growth when it comes to her career but I also feel there's so many things that she wants to do. Girl, just pick one, the world is your oyster.

Nikki and Spirituality

Even though she's not one to shout real loud when it comes to her spiritual path. She is definitely a believer in something greater than herself. There's a reason that you wake so early too, it's not just for work. You get your greatest insights and your intuition comes alive during that time of morning. Even though, it drives you nuts sometimes, just take the time to listen to what you need to know for you. I pick up that you're very much an empath and you try not to feel for everyone but you can't help it. There's also a huge connection to someone who has crossed over, I get a lot of faith from this woman and biblical scriptures are just screaming in my head. You may not have known her but you get your faith and strength from her. She's keeping an eye on you too.

Nikki and Health

Fresh greens, smoothies and things like jogging and walking are what I pick up for Nikki's health. She doesn't have a problem with keeping the weight off upper body wise. Even though the lower areas like her hips and butt are another story. Do lots of cardio, drink more water and embrace your curves chile' I also pick up that she needs to get more restful sleep. Meditate more and calm your mind down as you are unwinding for the day. That will help you get more sleep. Journaling does the same as well. Also don't be scared to say no as you tend to be everyone's superwoman. Other than that you're good and I also say, yoga is a good thing for you as you have some stiffness in your joints sometimes.

Nikki and Family

Family is everything. That's sort of a motto for you girl, Also family to you is more than relations. Family means your sister friends to the newspaper boy. I pickup that it's time to catch up with some of your friends and I also pick up a girl's trip because I'm seeing a beach. Sometime this summer. Take the time to call the ones you love and though this may sound odd, write them too. When it comes to your children they're good but with one of them you need to let get go of your tighten of the reins a bit. Believe me, they listen to you more than you think. I pick this up with a male child. Also when comes to your children and certain family members. Stop worrying so much! As you live in Nikkiland meaning your head. You're doing the right things. Just remember to make time for you more and that no one is perfect.

Nikki girl, you are a diamond and though it may be hard and at times rough. Never stop smiling or shining. We love you!
Love, Leo Brown :)

Star Readings: Donnie Simpson.

The man with the eyes of a cat! Radio host and VJ Donnie Simpson is back in more ways than one. Every since gracing our television screens with his charm and quick wit on BET's Video Soul. Donnie has always been like a gentle breeze before a storm. Today he shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, he's just getting started.

Donnie's New Show Donnie After Dark.

Old school meets new school. What I pick up for Donnie's show is it not only will it be a hit but it will showcase many of the artists that we have grown to love and that under the radar. Donnie wants the show to be fun but very grown, sexy and laid back. Although, I do pick up some ego coming into play when it comes to his show but that's because he's a big perfectionist and tends to nitpick over the small things. It's going to be something that he will love to do and look forward to doing each week. I pick up at least 3 seasons and there's going to be some travel involved with this show as well. As he wants to showcase many different types of music festivals.

Donnie's Health

Clean eating and cardio. Lots of cardio is what I pick up for Donnie when it comes to health. Donnie darlin', try to focus on both mental and physical health. As you live in your head and you really should be journaling if you aren't already. Donnie knows that when it comes to his body where his strengths and weaknesses lie. Don't overdo it on the weights Donnie and do more squats as you have awesome legs. I also see you cutting back on your carbs and drinking more tea and water. You're on the right track. However, allow yourself some wiggle room and eat some cake. You'll be much happier and stick to your diet better.

Donnie's Marriage and Family

When it comes to marriage and family. It's the little things that truly matter for Donnie. There have been some issues regarding trust and communication in the past. However, that's over and done with as both he and his wife know that they are works in progress and process. I pick up a lot of love and now understanding between the two of them along with lots of laughter. His children, especially his newly married daughter are everything to him. He just wants them to not only be happy but safe and healthy. There is some guilt I feel from not begin either around enough or open emotionally enough with them. Donnie darlin', don't worry, your children love you more than you will ever know.

Donnie and Spirituality.

When it comes to spirituality. There is a huge connection for Donnie as I pick up two people on his mother's side that are in spirit. They're very protective of him and want him to call on them if he needs to. There is also big connection to faith and religion. He's not a fanatic but he does believe in a higher power. Especially, when it comes to prayer. I see that Donnie prays about everything and I do mean everything. There's a huge connection to a grandmother or someone who was like that in his life. Donnie, she wants you to know that she not only loves the fact that as she says “Loves the lord.” but she is very, very proud of you and always knew that you were special. You're a good man Donnie Simpson. A very good man.

Love, Leo Brown :)

Star Readings: Tavis Smiley.

Tavis Talks.  Author,talk show host and commentator Tavis Smiley has a lot to say when it comes to both the world and black community at large. Although many of us may not agree with him or his point of view. One thing is for sure, he is a man on a mission of self expression, improvement and reflection. Not just for himself but for everyone around him.

Tavis' Mission.

Empowerment and uplifting his people, all people. The reason he is at times gruff is because he's seen countless times how the world treats black people as well as men and it bothers him on a deep, emotional level. He's going to write more books 2-3 more and in them you'll see his growth and frustration. I also see him speaking at many rallies in the coming months. He's mad as hell and isn't taking it anymore. He wants to change the world and that's exactly what he is going to do. I also pick up him doing more work with Cornel West and Roland Martin. There are going to be more speaking engagements and television appearances.

Tavis' Love Life.

When it comes to his love life. That's a private matter. Tavis doesn't kiss nor does he tell. Even though I do pick up a few women in his life. He's not a player but he crushes a lot. However, when it comes to relationships he's a one woman man but that woman has too be able to get him on every level. If you can't stimulate him mentally, spiritually and then physically. Then it will not work. You either give him your all or it's nothing. Also contrary to popular belief. He's a very soft hearted man who loves, love but he's not an easy catch. Which is why it always appears as if he's single.

Tavis and Spirituality.

Tavis' spirituality is deeply rooted. I pick up a huge connection to his grandmother and his ancestors. Spiritual growth is very important to him and keeps not only grounded but very sane. I pick up a great deal of prayer and affirmations. I also pick up a great deal of reading and meditation. He's been a life long seeker when it comes to different faiths and beliefs as he feels that it's answered many questions He questions everything and everyone but god.

Tavis and Health.

Tavis, Tavis, Tavis. Chile' get more sleep. Learn to put away the paper and pin and just relax. It will do you good in the long run. Also add more greens to your diet and do more cardio. It will ease your sometimes crippling anxiety. Also look into journaling. You really need to unplug and laugh more than think. When was the last time you let your hair all the way down? I see you starting to relax more as we go into the new year. Trust me darling, everything is going to be alright.

Tavis, we thank you for your hard work and service. Even though they may not always agree. Your audience is there and they're listening with their ears, eyes and hearts wide open.

Love, Leo Brown :)

Star Readings:Jerome Braggs.

A soulicious life, a soulicious heart, a soulicious experience. That is what medical intuitive medium and spiritual teacher Jerome Braggs is all about. He not only wants everyone to live their truth but their lights to shine. He sees beauty and healing in everyone and in everything. That is his mission and it is his passion.

Jerome's Love Life

When it comes to Jerome's love life, I don't pick up a person. I pick up experiences. Jerome wants to let his hair down and just have fun. Not from a hookup point of view but a energy connection. In other words if the energy don't fit, he's not doing it. Love to Jerome means freedom and openness. Not restriction. He knows when the timing and the energy will be right to commit to someone. For right now, he's surrendering to what love truly means and for him it is means peace and balance. Don't worry Jerome, the universe hears you and loves what you're doing.

Jerome's Mission/Career.

Core healing. Jerome's mission is to heal. If you're looking for someone who will pussy foot with you. Look elsewhere. Be prepared to go deep and yes honey, even to weep. However, don't ask the questions you don't want the answers to. Cause with him you're going to leave a different person than who you were before. I pick up speaking engagements within the next two years, books (at least 4) and I see him interviewing people who like him, are changing the world. There's also a connection to him and the huffington post and there may be some overseas travel. I pick up either London or Ireland. I also see him recording meditations and a spiritual album. Get ready world, because Jerome's coming!

Jerome's Health.

When it comes to his health. Both the mental and physical are important at the moment. Jerome baby, focus more on juicing, yoga, weightlifting and a little cardio. Also, don't be scared to give yourself a day of cheating. Just don't overdue it. Especially when comes to meats and dairy products. More leafy greens and use that spice cabinet more often and you'll be right as rain. Your daily naps are good for you as they release stress and make your more creative. You're on the right track.

Jerome and Spirituality.

Spirit is all around you. You have nothing to fear. I know you know this but it doesn't hurt to be reminded. Your ancestors are watching you from both sides of the family and you need to talk with them more often. Don't just talk to them. Weep. Just like you go deep with clients, go deep with yourself and don't be scared. Trust me all is becoming clear. Just listen. You have more friends and people that love you than you know. Reach out to them and they will give you what you need.
You've done well Jerome but this is only the beginning. Now I want you to pull those shoulders back, stall tall in all that you are and let everyone have it! You are on this planet for a reason and trust me, it's a great one. You sir, are fierce!

Love, Leo Brown :)

Star Readings: Jenna Jameson.

Finally free! A new year, a new life, a new jenna. Former adult actress/author Jenna Jameson is back but in a whole new way. Life for her has opened up and taken on a new meaning. The days of her riding hard and high both literally and figuratively are long gone and behind her. She now sees herself as a powerhouse in every sense of the word. Why? Because after everything she's been through. She doing the one thing she's never truly done. Love herself unconditionally.

Jenna's Love life.

This time Jenna has found a man that loves Jenna the person. Not Jenna the star. I pick up a lot of blending for both of them. A blending of cultures, faiths and even personalities. It may seem odd to some but it actually works out quite well for them. This man does something that not many men can do or have done. He calms her down as she's always in her own head. He also makes her laugh and brings out the nurturing side of her. Which is not an easy feat when it comes to her. I pick up that this engagement will not but short or quick as they both want to make the right decisions in every way possible. They both are marrying for life and for love. Jenna feels for the first time that there is a sense of completion in her love life. I also pick something to do with her kids this winter (february) either way it's going to be great news.

Jenna's Sobriety.

Sober for good. Sober for life. Does she have her bad days? She does but, her goal is to remain clean and healthy. I see her helping many other young women and men with this disease and I also pick up her doing a documentary about her journey. She really wants to help other people as she has seen a lot of suffering and a lot of loss from people that she's loved and cared about. I also pick up her speaking or doing a tour about this in the late spring early summer. One thing is for sure, she's not looking or going back to who she once was.

Jenna Jameson.
Jenna's Career.

Social media. Youtube. Jenna is going to be more personal and hands on. I pick up a lot of behind the scenes stuff for her. I also pick up some deals and contracts coming her way as well and she may be hitting the airwaves with a radio show. The spotlight matters to her but not in the same way it used to. I also up either a cooking show or some cookbooks coming as well. Food I feel has helped her stay sober and she loves to both eat and cook. The only way Jenna would get back in front of the camera a full force way is if it was something that was life changing and constructive. I do pick up books but the publishing world isn't really her cup of tea right now so we'll see. When it comes to business. I see her mentoring and helping others. She'd be a great agent or manager because she can horse trade like no one else. We also may see her dabble in music.

Jenna's Health

Clarity and energy. That's what I get that matters the most to her. Things like hiking, meditation and laughter are what keep her going. She doesn't mind getting a little thicker but she also knows when to rein it in and maintain her shape. Even though she's in her 40's she doesn't feel it. She likes where she is health wise. Although I would say to you girlfriend, allow your mind to relax along with making sure you sleep soundly and you'll be fine. Add more teas and greens to your diet.

Jenna and Spirituality.

A new found sense of self. Jenna is not an extremist but her faith next to her children are her lifelines. Her conversion to the jewish faith wasn't a fluke. If anything it has been one of the things that has saved her life. She's very psychic or as she would say psycho herself. She feels things in the pit of her stomach and her body may react by getting chills or shaking. That's how she knows she's on the right track. There's a deep connection to her mother and her faith. I pick up that she thinks of her often and her mother comes to her via dreams or whispers to her while she is in rest. Jenna knows that is more than what we've been told. Which is why she loves her new faith because it allows you to go within.

Jenna Jameson or should I say Jenna Marie. Has been there, done that and lived to tell us all about it. This moment and this year is all about love and empowerment. Both for herself and others like her. We thank you for begin our inspiration and motivation. Great job girl, you fucking rock!

Love, Leo Brown :)

Leo Revealed: My Life With Cerebral Palsy.

Healing The Wounded Child.

Everyone has something "wrong "with them. It could be a lazy eye or an odd looking toenail. No one is perfect. No matter hard we try to strive for it. Now that all sounds good to hear but the truth is that for some of us. We hide our imperfections by pretending that they don't exist.  For years this was me.

My Legs. (Right is longer than the Left)
You see, I was born with a disability. I have spastic cerebral palsy. I will admit even writing down those words was and is hard for me. I've never embraced my disability. All my life, I wanted to blend in, be normal and treated like everyone else. I can remember as a little boy having to go to adaptive physical education and hating it.

I can remember thinking "I'm not like these people." I'm not different." "I don't walk funny." All my life I've run away from my disability or overcompensated because of it. I always thought I had to work twice as hard as the next person to show them and myself. "See, I am just like you."  For many years I have carried around guilt, sadness, shame and anger. I've hated the way I've walked or that I needed assistance to do tasks that many take for granted.

However, as hard as this is for me. I realize that's time for me to stop running from my disability, from me. Like it, Love it or Hate it. This is part of who I am. Today, I now embrace cerebral palsy, my cerebral palsy with open arms and an open heart.

For many years, I've thought of myself of begin alone, poor and unloved. All because of the fact that I walked funny and if I were were to have people around. They would be forced to take care of me. For so long I've seen myself as undesirable, unwanted. Odd.   I realize now that by me talking about this. I'm putting my fears to bed, Which is where they belong in the first place.  Today, my healing starts now.

How CP Impacts My Life.

When people ask me why I have a cane. I always give the simple answer. Which is I have cerebral palsy. I've never gone into detail about it until now. As I've said before I have spastic cerebral palsy.
My left leg with surgery scar

My right arm.
It basically means that my reflexes can be very exaggerated and muscle movement is stiff. I also have issues with things such as balance, coordination, flexibility and muscle tone. Because of this. I've had 13 surgeries, had my calf muscles cut in half on both legs, had my ankles broken and then reset with pins in them. Worn and slept in braces. One of the reasons I use a cane is to aid with things like balance.

My right leg. With surgery scar.
Left Leg with Hamstring scars from surgery.

Right Leg With Hamstring scars from surgery.

When I walk I tend to drag both of my feet. So shoes don't last very long with me. I am also partially paralyzed on my right size as it is the weaker part of my body. If you were to see me to walk. You'll notice that I trend to drag my right foot along.  Which is not easy for a thick bitch like me. It wears me out and one right leg is a couple of inches longer than my left.

When it comes to things like dating or even just meeting friends. I won't tell people about my cp because I would think that they would either leave me or they wouldn't want to be around me.  I  am not trying to be dishonest. I just was protecting myself and begin stubborn.

Even though, there are times where I trip and fall or I have to stop rest to catch my breath from dragging my right leg. All the while, I'll tell the person I'm with that I am okay. When that wasn't /isn't true. This truth is. There are times that I do need help. That I do have to stop to rest.

My Wheelchair. (We've been through a lot together)
There even times that I use wheelchairs or scooters to get around places like theme parks or big grocery stores.  I have to admit that I get a kick out those things. They're fun!!

The reason I am writing about this because it's time for me to come clean and left go of the pain. I've been carrying this around for too long. We all have limitations and you what? That's okay. It's not only okay. It's normal. We wouldn't be human if we didn't have something that makes us stand out.

None of us are meant to blend in. So don't! I hope that these words have/ will inspire someone to stand out and not blend in. From the bottom of my heart.

Love, Leo Brown :)
