With as many memes, meme makers and #Reposts of positive messages, quotes, ways of life, and general ways to find happiness, you would think people are truly getting it. But the sad truth is there are so many hurt and victimized souls, not knowing how to properly process or deal with the incidents or events throughout their lives that created the hurt. They want to hide certain things they've experienced so they're not judged by people. They keep up this facade of I'm invincible.
I'm here to tell you that it is not healthy. I learned to stop giving myself pity parties when things started off crazy in my adult life. Right at age 18, I was raped. He was a 'friend' of mine and yes, weed and alcohol involved but it doesn't make it OK nor make me responsible for the sexual violence that happened.
Adding insult to injury, I didn't get no support from my "boyfriend " at the time who didn't believe me. That's not the only thing. I left home right after high school graduation thinking I was in love so to top it off, I was also living in a crack house and selling crack to survive in college. Coming from a 'poor mentality' my parents biggest cares were fighting over child support rather than supporting me in my educational goals. I had no grants, it was too late to sign up for the dorms and just being on an academic scholarship didn't provide enough extra funds. I cared about being in college. My parents didn't push me. I did.
I'm not a victim. I am a survivor. I did not cower in survival situations, I made a way. Instead of crying, I grew. I learned what to do and what not to do. As far out as the choices were, they were presented and I chose those lessons. I am as strong and resilient as I am today because of each and every one of those incidents or events in my life. I took control of life. I didn't let it control me. I could have been a statistic easy, a few times over actually ... Nahhh... Not a chance. You see, the way my God is set up!! I love who I am. 😇 😆💕👑💖 #Blessed #Trappin#College #Rape #HowRebelRobbWasBorn💯#MYTRUTH
I follow a lot of inspirational people, and I surely consider myself inspirational as well. What I KNOW is that I LIVED life, MADE STUPID MISTAKES, LEARNED from them and used it as knowledge and applied it to my life. If you haven't yet applied, or you're still making mistakes, God is still with you and it isn't too late.
This is coming from the girl who lived in a trap house in college. And the girl who danced for a living and met the #911 terrorist in my strip club. And the girl who went got scooped up by the Secret Service for receiving counterfeit money at the club, amongst other things. Yes, all of this is true.
Clearly this is not my life today, but as you can see I sure learned from those mistakes and became a ROLE MODEL. Not someone telling you to do right because it's good, but someone who did wrong and knows first hand the lessons.
Have a blessed week y'all. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. 💯✌ #RebelRobb 💯👑👀👑😇 #Homelessness #Trappin #Stripping #HowRebelRobbWasBorn #LatishaRobb

With all the talk about government officials in Flint, no one is talking about how to actually help Flint residents get the lead out of their systems.
As a mother, a taxpayer, a business owner and so many other titles, I get a feeling of distress when there is something of this magnitude affecting my community (I just organized a protest in Atlanta over a racist dry cleaning business in a predominantly Black neighborhood called Ben Hill.) There is no way I can sit on the sidelines and do nothing. The same as many of you are feeling. So, with the Might of God behind me, I’ve done what has been asked. I've donated money and water, yet still, it doesn't feel like that’s enough. As a community, we are lacking knowledge. The old adage, “knowledge is power’ is 100 percent true. We are also lacking the reflexreaction of “do something”! We’ve got to stop waiting on the sidelines for others to step up to the plate and start doing for ourselves.
That leads me to this...did you know, you can remove the toxins of lead from your body naturally? I’ve been on a healthconscious kick for over 5 years. Genetically, I have a small frame but I started getting healthy after the birth of my youngest daughter because I would break out in skin rashes while breastfeeding. I started to drink water and noticed a change in my skin after a couple of weeks. I routinely detox with a concoction of water, lemons, cucumbers and onions so it’s right up my alley to share what I know. Also, my good friend, Dr. Joy Edwards RN, NMD, PHD, MPH, practices holistic medicine and I often seek her out as it pertains to natural remedies. As it relates to treating lead poisoning, she shares, "When discussing the potential treatment of lead poisoning one must first know what some of the signs and symptoms of lead poisoning are. One issue with this particular condition is that sometimes the symptoms are hard to identify or may be asymptomatic until the damage is actually done. However, there are things you can do now to start removing lead from your body.
The first course of action, is to get a blood test to measure the amount of lead in your blood. Once you get the results, you can proceed with treatments. “There are different treatments depending on your level of lead toxicity. The treatment also is based on if you are still in the contaminated area consuming the lead or if you are no longer exposed to the lead. Such as in cases of lead dust ,or lead paint consumption, exposure, water contamination etc.”, shares Dr. Edwards. “According to the Normative aging study, it suggests that low intake of Vitamin D and Vitamin C may contribute to higher lead levels in elderly and middle age consumers.” Increasing your intake of Vitamin C rich foods and taking a vitamin D supplement and consuming foods fortified with Vitamin D can assist with the bodies natural ability to remove lead from the body.
You should also increase your calcium and Iron rich food intake, and use supplements that can assist with detoxing. Dr. Edwards explains, “These are things that will assist your body over time to remove lead levels. Any form of oral chelation is not an immediate fix so one must be careful if your child is exhibiting symptoms that are presenting as a sore throat, irritability, stomachache and you are aware that they have been exposed to lead.”
She recommends some easy low cost ways to detox naturally with simple items from the grocery store.
● Cilantro can be put into your bottle water and consumed 34 times daily(take 3 stalks per bottle water).
○ you can also just chew cilantro or make a garnish on your food..
● Kale greens can be cooked or consumed raw and taken daily
● Spinach added to your eggs, spinach salads or spinach cooked with garlic with a little bit of water in a pan daily. (if you are on certain medications you may have a limit to how many servings you can have of green leafy vegetables. Please consult your physician). These greens can reduce buildup of lead in your body along with other heavy metals.
*It is important to note that one should not eat canned vegetables or any canned foods as a substitute as they are filled with unnatural preservatives.
● Cook with garlic and onions daily if possible. (this helps the liver detoxify itself of heavy metals such as lead daily).
● 8 oz vegetable juice is also another healthy option daily(not canned) every two hours or filtered bottled water every two hours to flush out toxins daily. (this is great when you have continued exposure to reduce buildup)
I use the following supplemental routine to detox prescribed by Dr. Joy Edwards. Keep in mind this is not to replace medical care but a preventative and complementary way to assist with the detoxification process.
● Chlorella 48 caps daily
● Vitamin C 3000mg daily.
● Probiotics 50 billion units daily
● Milk Thistle 150 mg 2x daily
● Vitamin D 1000 ius 3 tabs daily
Conveniently, these products can be purchased low cost at your area drugstore.
While sending bottled water is good, I think sponsorships from water filtration companies, health food stores, and wellness centers should consider donations and services to the residents of Flint. The grocery store is a great place to get a lot of the above recommended natural preventative ingredients. Also recognizing key symptoms in children is important and you can find that on my blog at www.latisharobb.com.
I simply want to do my part and share my knowledge. When we know better, we can do better.

Continuing from my last post, these are signs and symptoms of lead poisoning according to my good friend, Dr. Joy Edwards RN. NMD. PHD. MPH.
She shares, "When discussing the potential treatment of lead poisoning one must first know what some of the signs and symptoms of lead poisoning are. One issue with this particular condition is that sometimes the symptoms are hard to identify or may be asymptomatic until the damage is actually done."
In children some more acute symptoms present as follows:
If you see your child exhibit these or you have any or a number of these symptoms you need to seek medical attention to prevent further neurological damage.
First and foremost I would like to send a prayer of love and compassion to every man. woman and child affected by this tragedy of lead poisoning. Flat out, it is criminal what has happened, and at the same time that we are sending bottles of water, the problem is far from being addressed with a solution on the horizon.
This feels like a piece of the systematic extinction of war on blacks, but I digress. I get a feeling of distress when there is something of this magnitude affecting my community the most. I feel like I'm supposed to help as much as I can with the might of God behind me. So, what have I done? I've donated water. I've donated money. Yet, still it doesn't feel like enough. So I started scouring the internet looking for articles of how to remove lead from the body. Because you can actually do this on your own volition.
Surprisingly, I thought there would be a lot of information out there considering this current event which is seemingly popping up in a different state every week. First Michigan, then Louisiana, Baltimore, New Jersey and who knows where next.
Here is some info I found from an article online providing ways to remove lead from the body naturally.
"...Once lead toxicity has been confirmed, there are various things you can do to detoxify it from your system. Here are five recommendations:
1. Increase your dietary calcium intake. Calcium and lead compete for absorption in the intestine. Therefore, if the diet contains adequate calcium, ingested lead will pass through the gastro-intestinal tract and be excreted from the body.
2. Invest in a Vitamin C with bioflavonoids supplement. This helps to neutralize the effects of lead in the body.
3. Infrared sauna therapy has a deeply detoxifying effect on the body. Infrared saunas are becoming widely recognized for their detoxification benefits. They can be found in healing centers, spas, fitness centres, etc.
4. Bentonite Clay is an excellent substance to help pull heavy metals out of your body. Once ingested, the clay binds to the positive oriented molecules (in this case the lead) and pulls them out of the body through waste elimination. Since clay is negatively charged, the positively charged molecules are instantly attracted to it. This has proved to be a very effective way to eliminate other waste products from the body. Essentially, Native tribes , and some birds and animals have been ingesting clay for many centuries.
5. Chlorophyll is a great substance to help chelate heavy metals out of your body. Foods like cilantro, chlorella, spirulina, and wheat grass are all excellent food to help boost the nutrient content in the blood in an effort to provide the body with the appropriate tools to flush harmful substances out."
The Mayo Clinic has a good article on it as well.
I think we should also start sending vitamins, wheatgrass, cilantro, clay and whatever else counteracts the effects and detoxifies the body of lead. This is how they will actually combat the lasting negative effects on the body.
I also think that we should start to educate ourselves more and spread the knowledge. I know that we need to do better with owning knowledge as a society and help ourselves. Remember, knowledge is power.
Please share this with your peers and then think of ways that we can continue to spread this awareness. Remember, we all have a role in this. Let's be a blessing to one another.

Fasting, or the process of consuming no food, has been a part of our cultures for thousands of years. Christians, Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, Buddhists, and people of other faiths have practiced fasting since the beginning of time. For many, fasting is a form of deep meditation and spiritual healing, but modern science is beginning to think it’s so much more than that.
A study conducted at the University of Southern California suggests that prolonged fasting helps prevent damage to the immune system and can produce hematopoietic stem cells which generate bloods cells and immune cells.
Fasting for 2-4 days at a time over a six month period was also found to destroy aged and damages cells. This could theoretically be applied to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, since chemotherapy kills cancer cells and damn near every other kind of cell in your body too. Fasting could help combat chemo side-effects.
“We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system,” wrote Edna M. Jones, a professor of Gerontology and Biological Sciences at USC Davis School of Gerontology.
“When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged,” added Valter Longo, director of the USC Longevity Institude. “What we started noticing in both our human work and animal work is that the white blood cell count goes down with prolonged fasting. Then when you re-feed, the blood cells come back. So we started thinking, well, where does it come from?”

In my second book, "What You Don't Know About Your Soul" I touch on this very topic. The Pineal Gland is the actual 3rd eye! It's where the soul lives in our body. Close your eyes and say ommmm. Do you feel that vibration in the middle of your forehead behind your nose? That's the location! It is essential to understand what is happening around us and in us to fully harness the power within us that is our birth right. I truly appreciate this article, and Spirit Science in general, as it backs up the content in my book, and it also goes deeper. I encourage people to do their own research even after they hear something from a trusted source. Only then will you own your knowledge. Get into it! The knowledge is available to devour! Let's eat!

Humans are bestowed with a certain part of their brain known as the pineal gland or also known as our third eye. The reason as to why it is called pineal is for it’s shape, like a pine cone.
A tiny pine cone that is in charge of producing serotonin derivative melatonin that has to deal with our hormones that affect the modulation of sleep/wake patterns, including our seasonal functions.
This tiny pine cone can be found near the center of the brain in place between the two hemispheres.
The reason as to why higher up’s keep this information from people is so they do not find out the fullest potential that this part of us has.
The pineal gland is essentially the portal between the physical and spiritual world for humans. When activated, the sensation of euphoria and oneness fills the persons mind, giving them a sense of all knowing. One can achieve this activation through yoga, meditation and variety of other occult methods.
Once activated, that person is able to freely travel to other dimensions, or otherwise referred to as astral projection or remote viewing.Through ancient methods and advance practices, one could even control the thoughts and actions of other people in the physical world.
All though this seems impossible, the former Soviet Union governments as well as various shadow organizations have been researching these effects for a really long time, keeping the information under lock from the public eye.
The reason we are unable to achieve this amazing feat within our brains is because of the amount of sodium fluoride we digest on a daily basis. The pineal gland absorbs most of the sodium fluoride that enters our bodies.
This essentially dumbs the pineal gland down by no longer being able to balance our hormonal processes in the body. Click here to read more...
Hey everyone! It’s been awhile since I did a blog! I have been living life - being a Mother, pouring into my children. And, I’ve been writing my new book - it’s coming out in a couple of months. I’ve also been an activist on the ground In this Black Lives Matter movement - in my own way. Overall, becoming more aware.
There is So much going on in our world that I want to address. So let’s get started with a topic I was paying attention to recently. I was on Twitter and noticed a story Black Enterprise tweeted, “College Not Closing the Wealth Gap for Blacks” I’ll admit, I didn’t read the article in it’s entirety. The title alone is everything I already know. So I responded, “Sadly I’m not surprised that college is not closing the wealth gap for black people. #OwnSomeLand. In response to my response, many people retweeted, favorited and responded back to me, basically wanted me to expand on my tweet. So, . I wanted to expand on my view in a blog since there is only so much you can say in 140 characters.
The wealth gap in America has to be looked at outside of the imaginary box called the “ American Way”. You go to college, get a degree, get a job, happy ending, right?. Nope. That’s not how it goes down generally for Blacks trying that formula. I know because I tried it.
I am a college dropout, and a single mother of 5 girls and I do things the other “American Way”, not as I’m told, but how I’m taught. I’ve always had a rebellious spirit, I always wanted to know the other ways you can “skin a cat”. How to work smart and not hard. The real American Way. #ThinkOnIt.
However, even though I dropped out of college, I have been successfully earning a six-figure income for several years now after being homeless in 2006 with 4 kids at the time I also went to college on an earned academic scholarship, so I wasn’t in debt to Sallie Mae.No student debt or loans for me.
I did a lot of things but eventually got into investments and real estate. When I understood that land/property is something that holds value forever, I knew one day I would own a lot of property. When we as a race start getting into the mindset of creating our legacy, we will start accumulating property and things of value that can be passed on and kept within our family. That’s the only real way of closing the gap.
Owning land is just one way to get permanent wealth. The focus should be on achieving a level of financial freedom instead of looking at how others do it.. The grass could be greener but it could also be an illusion.
I also read another article on Black Enterprise about Serena and the blonde who makes way more than her even though Serena has won more. I love Serena's answer. There’s enough for everyone. If you have more than enough to survive, what does it matter who has more? Are we in competition for who has the biggest bank account, or are we simply trying to be able to enjoy life however that looks to each of us?
Society and social media has created this one “wave” of thinking, like we all should be thinking the same thing. That could not be farther from the truth. That’s called being a sheep or “sheeple”. Free thinking is FREE y’all. Own your own feelings and opinions about everything. Don’t feel as though you need to go with the flow and succumb to being a sheep.
I understand what being Black in America means. It is clear as day that most institutions are built with the intention to keep us suppressed and contained. I get it, so I decided to write my own life and not go with the outline. I tell a bit of my story in my first book, “Turn On the Lights”.
We as Blacks generally have been going about things in a begging mentality instead of a I’ll get it myself mentality. I believe in not being a statistic and making the best of my life against the status quo. I was in the United States Navy, the became a stripper, ended up homeless and now a successful business owner and realtor.
Though I am considered a “college dropout”, I like to say I graduated from the College of Life. I have my residency. It’s like a doctor who went to school to be a surgeon. No one allows that doctor to do surgeries until they put those hands on hours in.
If you don’t have my first book, “Turn on the Lights”, get it! It will be able to shed more light on who I am and prepare you for my next book “What You Don’t Know about Your Soul” that will hopefully help shed some light on who you are.
Hello everyone! I am very excited to start coming to the world live and direct! I look forward to sharing my personality, along with my knowledge, and I pray that someone somewhere will benefit from my experiences. Please check out my welcome video, which sets the tone of what I will be discussing on this youtube channel. Blessings and Faith to you all!
