#DoItAFRAID…Beyond hashtags

I didn’t even know it was a hashtag. I just know that this is something God has been telling me for say 5months now.
I get a lot of comments and talks on how I am SUPER HUMAN, so energetic, so on fire, so disciplined, so etc, but what people don’t know is that for MOST of what i do, I DO IT AFRAID!!!

I am talking heart-racing, tummy-running, fingers-trembling A F R A I D!!!

In our Propel 1 meeting yesterday

, of which i had TWO PROPEL groups meet yesterday, the video we saw was DECISION MAKING and Mercy Lokulutu said something, as she explained sticking to her decisions and not being indecisive or emotional about it…

‘Once God says it, it doesn’t matter how i feel, I can EAT my feelings, I can DO LOTS OF THINGS WITH MY FEELINGS, but when God says it I OBEY!!!’

Then Chris said

‘…sometimes we are just paralysed by FEAR thinking we may fail or miss the mark, BUT God can only steer a MOVING ship, and God is really BIG, so don’t worry, IF YOU FALL OUT OF THE SHIP, HE WILL PUT YOU BACK’

Oh i have also heard Gmama Joyce say (or was it Christine Caine)

Do it Afraid until you don’t feel fear anymore… (I think it was Christine, In UNSTOPPABLE)

I hate the paralysis that FEAR brings, and so I get really UPSET about that paralysis and I am now super INTENTIONAL about doing what needs to be done, AFRAID OR NOT!!!

Let me share practically how i get through the PARALYZING FEAR

First, i need to be sure this is something God has told me to do. Not my emotions, not my brokenness or ‘lockdownness’, but God!!! And one way i confirm is to check my motives, WHY DO I WANNA DO IT? Once that is sorted, i move to phase 2

I PRAY!!!

Oh Jesus, I pray up a storm in the Spirit. I pray using Scriptures ooo, so it means i go into the Word first, get a Scripture and start to confess it in prayers. I just pray so much in the Spirit and as i pray, more ideas and clarity forms in me, and gradually the fear starts to give way to FAITH!!!

Then in the course of my regular day to day activities, i FORCE myself to THINK  consciously about it, while muttering Scriptures under my breath. I don’t know about yawl but sometimes, when I am scared of something, i do NOT even want to think about it, so I block out anything that would remind me of it. BUT GOD FORBID THAT fear (and i purposely put fear in small letters lol)

I consciously think about it, while muttering PHIL 4:13 IN AMPLIFIED!!!

download-1

You should hear Joel quote this scripture especially telling the FAITH story of how they eventually got the Compaq Centre, a former Basket ball stadium, as their Church facility. He mostly closes his eyes and fist-pumps. LOVE IT!!! Like, satan NO REASH!!!

So all the time, i think about it, because that means i am taking the power away from it. I think about how i will feel once that is in the bag, i think about how lives INCLUDING mine will be blessed and enriched, I think about how MAD the devil will feel. Ah, i think ooo. So that Scripture is infusing strength in me steady, while my mental faculties are getting used to the idea…

Then i start to read books and messages that talk about whatever I need to do. I let God lead me to those materials and my Teachers  because I truly want to be ministered to. Check my Post on 10,000 Teachers https://eziaha.com/2016/02/03/10000-teachers-guys-stay-hungry-lean-in-go-hard/

I watch videos on YouTube from my Teachers and they usually just speak to my current situation. I recall this message and how it totally spoke to me on something liver was cutting me about. By the time i got to end of this video ehn, AH!!!

Oh and then i TALK ABOUT IT!!!

I certainly talk about it OR blog about it!!! Talking about it puts more power in my hands, and makes me realize NO GOING BACK now!!!

Propel woman Catherine haha

Fear is something that makes us NOT want to talk about it because we think WE ARE NOT ENOUGH or we will come up short or run out of ‘whatever’. We are afraid of what ‘people’ will say and think of you. That is just the devil. 

There is just something about starting. When we start, it is AMAZING how supernatural supply – physical, spiritual and mental and everywise– just start to turn up. But they won’t come your way until you start!!!
So start already. Plus even if we make a mistake and it is genuine, God sees our hearts and He has a way of redeeming stuff for us. See how this motive thing played out between the King who took Abraham’s wife as his, and God in Genesis 20…

Did he not say to me, ‘She is my sister,’ and didn’t she also say, ‘He is my brother’? I have done this with a clear conscience and clean hands.”

Then God said to him in the dream, “Yes, I know you did this with a clear conscience, and so I have kept you from sinning against me.

He made an honest mistake and God let him off the hook…

Which is why my motives are super important.  Shirer said if she examines herself and sees that the ONLY thing stopping her from making a decision is FEAR, She knows that is EXACTLY what God wants her to do!!!

You know, I am working on an INTIMATE seminar for 15 Chicks where I will just pour all my fire into them to start up on their goals, and hold their hands through it for a period. More info will turn up next week but the date is 29th October or 5th November, both Saturdays (or it could be Sunday sef) and it will cost 5k. Loving our location already. 

Just seeing it pumped more fire in me to get this done. I think i will call it THE P413 XXXX Seminar. P413 being Phil 4:13, XXX is still unknown to my Spirit and I don’t even think I want to say SEMINAR!!! Either ways, we are sooo doing it!!! You may wanna book a slot down already by emailing eziaha@eziaha.com (and I might have TWO of my friends already running hard on LANE PURPOSE join me)

LADIES, NO TIME TO SLACK OO. God is up to soooo much in His Chicks so this is the time to RUN UNSTOPPABLE

 LITERALLY after your dreams. Leave fear and feelings alone. 

They truly are NOT as powerful as we think!!! Plus trust me, you can feel fear and have a BOLD FACE too. I recall sharing somethings with my accountability partner Aijay and when I said ‘I am afraid ooo’, she looked at me wide eyed and said BUT YOU DO NOT SOUND AFRAID!!!

That’s true. I didn’t care to let the fear show…

Ladies, PLEASE DO IT AFRAID… Whatever your IT is…

Ok a few more things

My Propel 1 meetings were EVERYTHING

With our Super awesome host in Propel 2 and her baby

In Propel 1; 

Ugo, our in-house photographer in Propel 1 did an awesome recap here.More Propel small groups are springing up. Propel was something i started in FEAR ooo, forget all the ginger you saw on my blog posts here https://eziaha.com/2016/09/06/eziaha-propelled-lessons-from-my-life/ and here https://eziaha.com/2016/08/27/say-hello-to-propel-lagos/. But now see, more small groups are starting and hopefully by end of the year, we should have between 15 and 20 up and running. AMEN. I will share my PROPEL fears sometime later.

Check out those posts above and then email propel@eziaha.com for details if you wanna start one and need some help. It is really simple. Grab 5 or 10 of your friends together, ONCE A MONTH, watch the videos and discus them amongst your selves. The conversations are just AMAZING!!! Propel CHANGED my life and I truly want to see more Chicks be PROPELLED into their worlds FOR JESUS!!!

OK SECONDLY,TFS Academy is open again.

Ok I am off to get my hair and nails done

I have a video and photo shoot tomorrow

I am dying my hair RED HOT because I need a FIERCE look for my #ChicksWithSwords Devotional haha

As per video, gosh I have an exciting message on Mommy Guilt, Mommy Fears and Mommy Wars… The Holy Spirit is AMAZING!!! This will resonate with moms all over not just stay-at-home moms but the deal is SAHM usually find themselves saddled by these because they have relatively more time and if you don’t guard your heart, the devil will just come and be throwing nonsense thoughts in.

CoachE’ (haha)

The FAB Sistership Academy… Warrior Chicks, Loving Life, Serving JESUS!!! 

(Ok I am so sorry but any mail that comes after now will have to wait for the next set. So technically, the FIRST set is FULL)

Marshawn Evans Daniel is such a phenom!!!
Gosh!!!

I was watching one of her many videos (and I watch her daily because she is one of my Teachers) and a line jumped at me from this video.

START BEFORE you are ready!!!

Can I just tell yawl that I am NOT ready for this?

But frankly I don’t see myself ready till March next year, if then sef, BUT that is just because I am trying to find PERFECT conditions to start.

I wanted to do a nice flyer, a photo, a big online launch and maybe be ‘more born-again’ (read PERFECT) before launching this.

I wanted the 3C’s PERFECT too…

The Curriculum

The Culture

The Confession

I really wanted to be 100% READY!!!

But my inbox won’t let me be.

It is like they released everyone at once to send me emails that make me realize that I need to step up and step out… Ready or NOT!!!

But it’s all good…

John Maxwell said something… Well he also said the START BEFORE YOU ARE READY line but what followed made my soul sing…

‘Even if it is not perfect, my SOUL will sing and DEEP DOWN, I will feel satisfied…’

All that preaching above to say this…

HELLO!!!

The FAB Sistership Academy…

Warrior Chicks, Loving Life. Serving Jesus!!!

God dropped this idea in my heart March 15. I recall exactly where I was.

And what I was doing.

And how strong it came.

And how I furiously started writing and writing.

And how I mis-heard somethings and was going to commit crazy errors but thank God two of my mentees and I did this 1 month long 2am prayer meets DAILY for 1hour just to get more clarity for the Vision and prepare for the journey.

And my God, things truly became clearer, almost crystally, for me.

Can I just share my heart here?

I am NOT perfect!!!

Hahaha. Whenever I hear Lisa Bevere and Shirer say ‘I am NOT perfect’ , I wanna SHAKE them and say YES YOU ARE!!! Lol.

I imagine some of you wanna shake me and say YES YOU ARE Lol.

But really. I am NOT perfect.

Somehow though, both accidentally and incidentally, I am doing this life WELL!!!

Well enough for God to give me some assignments, one of which is this!!!

My journey has not been smooth but it has so far been fruitful as it keeps moulding me into the image of God!!!

Whenever I talk to people even if casually, and i see very profound reactions from what is just me ‘gisting’, I realize that maybe, just maybe, I have something to give. Like we are gisting and the person i am gisting is writing down what i am saying.

Haaaa!!! God has a sense of humor!!!

Maybe, what I think is not a big deal in the way I live my life, if certainly a HUGE deal to many and they would love to learn how to navigate this life too.

Phew!!! I recall one of the Chicks in my weight loss classes asking me to share how a typical day with CoachE’ goes… Looool. It was funny sha. I didn’t believe it.

Phew…

So ladies, let’s do this.

Are there Chicks who wanna lean into my life, and I do mean ALL THE WAY IN (real tears) and just grab all you can from me and apply to your life and season, as we navigate life together.

The ‘SISTERSHIP’ part is a HUGE part of the vision because God told me was He truly wanted that Sister-spirit among us, barring age, marital or financial status or past. Just Sisters, Loving life and Serving Jesus together. No drama. No attitude.

While it is such a HUGE honor to be the Sister who gets to run this, I am not there to be deified… I am just there to share my life with yawl and be ridiculously enriched and blessed by yawl too.

I am such a FUN human being so I tell ya, this will be a LOAD of fun, you would hardly believe it. But we would also grow in every way together.

I feel like I am babbling… Lol

Anyways, this is how this would work.

I would take in 15 ladies for a start and we would just be in TFS Academy for 6weeks (or 4). In which time you get to ask me questions on how I do life practically, share challenges, find answers, and we all get to fellowship together as Sisters.

All online via Whatsapp.

We will have rules and all to ensure a smooth running of stuff within the Academy and hey in 6weeks, we believe God that we graduate a totally ON FIRE set of ladies who have been transformed in every way!!! Then they go into their world and set more ladies on fire. Oh and of course, we would pray together, study together, worship together and just do life together…

And hey, you will hear my voice A LOT because i hold the franchise for sharing Voice notes haha. And hey, i understand that some people will have really private stuff they dont wanna share in the group so they can share with me personally BUT i will answer within the group so people can learn too, but i will also apply wisdom.

But hey, it is a GROUP Sistership NOT a one-on-one.

You should NOT spam me with issues personally daily. i might not be able to keep up with you, because whatever your issue is, another Chick is going through and will learn from it. So hey, GROUP not PERSONAL!!!

So what is the criteria to apply?

Nothing!!!

You don’t  need any criteria. Just be a Sister with a heart to grow into more, and an absolute aversion for drama. Be sure to let God lead you though.

And hey, you should also be ready to play a major role in the upgrade of your own life. Don’t just think i wave a wand and your life upgrades itself. Nah… You have to be ready to discipline yourself too to take steps that enrich your life.

I will come back to this post and add a CLOSED after I get my first 15, even though it won’t necessarily follow a ‘First come, First serve’ way.

Plus, after the first set graduate, i take a little break and then  we start the next and that is how we continue to grow.

Just send me an email Eziaha@eziaha.com and tell me a bit about yourself, your story and what your expectations are from TFS Academy.

And if you have emailed me before and I told you to wait for this, please use the same mail trail… I will give you some priority.

Hey, it doesn’t matter what your walk with God is like. Hot, cold, lukewarm, whatever. This is an all-comers affair. Just understand that you are in a group with Sisters and because we have a world to reach, we don’t have time for drama!!! Plus the good thing is i also believe God that solid friendships and relationships will bud from this. The kind that legit give us SQUAD GOALS

But hey, Warrior Chicks, Loving Life, Serving Jesus? Bring it on yo!!!

And hey, if you know any Chick who may need this, share with her. I will reply every mail ultimately whether you get into this First set or not. But hey, don’t hate me if I don’t add you up with this First one ooo.

 

Phew…

Lezzdodis… I am about to have soooooo many Sisters, Besties, Squad’ships, etc…

 

P U M P E D!!!

E’

Ok so i will NOT have a September weight loss group. I will be RESTING lol. Thought to share for those planning for September. I have to return a Client’s money who wanted to push to September because no show till October after August. So hey, join August now ooo.

Whether for Abs (N7500)

Or for Arms (N5000)

Or for general weightloss (N10,000)

Conditions apply for each so check out my IG @eziaha to know which you need…

Plus this Shaw Academy online Course on Nutrition and Fitness is INTENSE!!! But i am LOVING every single DROP of it.

September it even notches up, so i need to concentrate.

Plus I will love to PROMOTE the meal plan and prep part of my Coaching. I am learning a TON about food and how we can ‘manipulate’ it lol. So i will be creating and selling more meal plans depending on your fitness goals. A one-month meal plan will now cost 10k so holler!!!
