I don't know about you, but I feel a metamorphosis happening in my life! I have been discovering so many truths, nurturing my spirituality and mind, growing and energizing, so I can cocoon, and bust out and fly!
I have been a bit reclusive lately, which is representative of the cocooning stage. I have went inside of myself, giving me time to digest the knowledge that has been bestowed upon me, so that it is a part of me.
It will be the very fibers of my wings as I breakout! Please believe me that this is coming soon. There are many things in place that are going to take me to an entirely new level.
God's will is being done in my life. Just like the caterpillar who eats too much of the farmers vegetation, some people do not like it or will not like it. It doesn't matter, because it is pleasing God.
If you are inline with God and are doing the right thing, you too are feeling the transformation happening now. It is so pleasing to see people discussing transformation and metamorphosis now, as it is the holy spirit moving through us and we are listening. This is a sign of the awakening. That we are tuned in to the frequency of spirit and starting to live in PURPOSE on PURPOSE!
I am looking forward to the moment I am cleared to "TAKE OFF"! I KNOW I'M ON THE RUNWAY!!
Have a fantastic Friday everyone and embrace the TRANSFORMATION!! It's happening NOW! It is REAL!
TURN ON THE LIGHTS!
With Labor Day on the way, marking the unofficial end of summer, it is on my heart to write about seasons.
Seasons are so important for the continuation of life. When fall comes, trees become bare so that the branches can be pruned in anticipation for the new growth come Spring. If trees are not pruned in the Fall/Winter, the potential growth for the Spring is directly effected by not removing the old and dead.
Some people and situations come in your life for only a season. It is important to recognize the season, the reason, and the mark of the end of it. If we do not "prune" these situations in our "fall", then we can not expect as much growth as we can get in the spring.
There will be darkness, but light comes in the morning. There is no one who goes to bed thinking that the sun may not rise in the east. It is a promise. The knowing that GOD has something better for you, yet the pruning must take place, is the same faith that we must have knowing the sun will rise. Even if we do not.
God wants us to have that same faith as we do everyday letting the sun go for the night knowing it will shine in the morning.
What's so awesome to know, is that the sun never ceases to shine, only moves out of our view for a night. This is how our blessings are set up. Have you seen the picture of the little girl holding a teddy bear, and Jesus has a bigger one behind his back for her, if only she would give up the one she has?
We become so attached to the fruit that comes from a season, we don't realize that that fruit has a shelf life and will expire and spoil if we keep it too long.
Solid faith in God is what is needed as we transition from one season to the next. It may seem dark at times, but GOD will make it light in the morning!
If you are reading this, I hope you have a fantastic day full of faith!
TURN ON THE LIGHTS
If you have read my book, TURN ON THE LIGHTS, you should know that I had my share of Daddy issues.
Now as a mother, my own daughters have their own issues as well, which has prompted this blog topic.
My ex husband was never there, especially for my 14 year old daughter who doesn't remember living with him.
The older girls have had their bonding times with him, as they are about 7,6 and 3 years older than her.
She recently started High School and is also working on an emotional song that was written out of her pain from not having her father. In no capacity.
For the past couple of weeks, I noticed a change in her attitude. Very quiet, short responses to questions, and a look of distance and anger or resentment in her eyes. Like if you're talking, you are irritating her.
As a mother, I was not going to let the change go unnoticed or not confront it, so on our ride home Thursday, I asked her what's the deal? I've noticed a change in your behavior, and it seems that you are not grateful for what is being done for you. (She is driven to Fulton County from Cobb to attend a Charter Magnet School for Math and Science that I have to pay for)
When we got home, she asked to talk to me.
She said that she IS grateful for what I am doing for her. She knows I do not have to drive her or pay for school, she could have went to the local high school, caught the bus, and it would have required nothing extra from me. She said she appreciates me for everything I do. She went on to explain that she is stressed out from school, it is A LOT more work than Middle School, and she's not resting properly. She also mentioned that working with her vocal coach on her song, her father has been on her mind a lot lately.
Before now, I've heard her say that my dad is my sperm donor and he's a liar. She's said that she doesn't care about him because he doesn't care about her.
THERE IS THE PROBLEM:
The words of the song are very emotional and are not reflective of a "I don't care" attitude. In fact, the first time I heard the words, I cried. She is hurting inside and is trying to deal with her feelings.
I realized that High School, and the vocal coaching on the song started at the same time. She wrote the song a couple of months ago, but just now started gearing up for the studio.
I told her that this is very healthy. You are dealing with your feelings about your dad in a proper way, not lashing out, but making art out of your pain. Something beautiful. I also told her that I want her to do this now, here at home with me, because these feelings must be dealt with and will be dealt with, one way or another. She has no males in her life except my dad.
My brothers aren't uncles to her, only by blood. So when she gets out in the world and wonder why she can't trust a man, why she won't think they'll care about her, and think they're all liars, she may or may not relate it to her dad.
I had a meltdown when I was 25 and called my dad and step-dad and broke all the way down about how their actions effected me. By that time, my relationship with my husband, who was 10 years older than me, was over.
I don't want that for my daughter. I want her to have healthy relationships with the males, and break the cycle. I have not had great relationships with men, and I believe that is contributed in part by the relationships I had with the men who were supposed to love me and show me how I was supposed to be treated. (dad and step-dad)
Daddy love is so important! A girl who has her dad has a hero. Every girl needs to feel protected not only by her mother, but her father as well. Especially her father, because there is a physical strength that a man has that a woman will never possess. He also is her first example of how a man should treat her. Without this experience, she starts off with a callus that is disguised as strength. Filling that void. "I don't need a dad", turns to "I don't need a man."
The absence of a father makes the mother have to be a lot more than what she is meant to be. Mommy and Daddy.
I pray she is able to really deal with these feelings healthily and forgive him in time.
I am a pro active mother. We're going to address this now, with or without him. She is talented, smart, beautiful, affectionate, loving, and nurturing. Beautiful qualities that need to blossom. If I can help it, he will not effect her adult life as he has in her childhood.
Stay tuned for the song to be out. It is a HIT because it is REAL! You heard it first here at LatishaRobb.com

Blessings are so unique! I appreciate understanding that God loves me so much, that my blessings are MY BLESSINGS!! No one can take them from me!
Yours are yours as well! The spirit of envy and jealousy are detrimental to our growth and actually receiving what is for us. Being jealous or envious of another persons blessings is equivalent to being upset that when I ate healthy, you didn't lose weight! It makes no sense, it is a breeding ground for evil to enter, and it is the wrong spirit to entertain.
See, it is written that NO GOOD THING WILL HE WITHHOLD FROM THEM THAT WALK UPRIGHTLY (Psalms: 84:11)
One of my favorite light switches in my book is Intention vs Deed! Doing the right thing is directly related to your blessings, even when others don't do right by you. There will be people who take our kindness for weakness, there will be situations where you were blatantly used! But if our intention was pure, rest assured that balance is on the way. The Universe balances itself all the time, and the blessings always come from an unexpected direction. The next time you are blessed out of the blue from an unexpected direction, know that your deeds earned you that blessing. God put us here on PURPOSE with a PURPOSE! Our blessings are ensured to continue if we just do the right thing. There are lessons to be learned before the next level of lessons are presented. There is a store house in heaven with blessings for us as we continue to grow, pass tests, and be faithful.
The homeless person is prepared for his mansion by getting an efficiency or studio from working at a store emptying trash and doing odd jobs at night. He was grateful for his shelter, new home, and just a place to live. Continued good deeds, still doing odd jobs, he gets a raise and it now pays enough to allow for an apartment. Overjoyed, now with more space in the apartment, he is allowed to have an office so he can work on his passion in his spare time. Thankful every moment for more space, he's diligent and passionate, and goes on to sell an idea and gets major recognition. Now the idea has turned into a lot of money which allows him to buy his mansion. Along our journeys, we are distracted and misinformed, tricked, and uneducated, which stagnates us and doesn't allow for the faith/blessing machine to flow well-oiled. Not only will we continue to be blessed, but any weapon formed, any trouble, trick, -as long as we LOVE and BELIEVE that GOD is ALMIGHTY, he will rescue, protect, honor, give long lives and salvation!
This is what my education of living life, self discovery, and the holy spirit has taught me. I have just given you a recipe to favor. We all have the potential to be anointed!!
If you haven't already, please read my book TURN ON THE LIGHTS SO YOU CAN SEE!
When I hear the word "Vampire" it immediately takes my mind to darkness and stealing or taking something vital to life.
Energy Vampires are just that.
They come in many forms, and are usually done by the people closest to us.
When I googled Energy Vampires, I was surprised to see so many blogs and articles on the concept. In my book, I talk about Control Dramas, just some of the ways that people steal your energy.
I like this excerpt from one of the blogs I read:
How to Avoid Being Drained by Energy Vampires By SOPHIE HENSHAW, DPSYCH
"At first glance, energy vampires can seem highly attractive. They often are good-looking, bold, flamboyant or intelligent, and may appear to have a high opinion of you as indicated by their flattering attention. Drawing you into their inner circle may seem like just the boost you need in your usually drab work environment.
However, be aware that they are “grooming” you — setting you up to exploit you in whichever way best suits their purposes later. What seems quite innocent at first, such as finding a good friend, may lead you to compromise your ethics, morals and values against your will — maybe even breaking the law in due course. And because energy vampires are masters at avoiding responsibility, you could be the one who takes the blame when things go wrong."
It's crazy because I look back on all of the relationships that I had that were toxic and had an element of Vampirism, they were all of those characteristics described above. I feel it is my purpose to let everyone know about these terms and issues, and help us all grow.
For clarity in your life, and a general idea of Energy Stealing, I attached a link to a quiz.
Take the quiz below!
A CHILDREN'S PARABLE
This has become one of my favorite books to read to my babies. It has so many lessons for adults as well. A lot of us are "babies" if you will, when it comes to our OWN understanding of spirituality, so this book is a great place to start!!
When I first read it, I got a rush of KNOWING! I knew that this was absolutely correct and that this was definitely SOUL FOOD for my babies. My 3 year old always compares herself to the "little soul", as if she is imagining her life before this life. She tells me that she was in heaven with God before she came here. If you have read my previous posts, her favorite book is called, "Together Again", which is about a little girl becoming reunited with her mother here on earth. That book starts, "Do you remember where you lived before you were here on earth? I do. I lived in Heaven with God."
Please know that the influences that our kids get from us are the habits and life style they will adopt and be "programmed" to do in the future as young adults and adults. I teach SPIRITUALITY to my babies, and I PRACTICE it as well. Kids do not as they are told, but as they are taught. Instead of watching pointless challenges, youtube videos of fights, worldstar, poison tv, and listening to defamation music, idolizing Ho's and wanting girls to aspire to be "Bad Bi**hes", how about pouring some soul positivity into our youth so that we can ensure a legacy of strong minded soulful children and future leaders! Just looking at what is happening in the world today, this surely goes toward the solution and not the problem.
BE BLESSED AND PLEASE TURN ON THE LIGHTS!
I wanted to formally say that YES!! I am a life coach and a motivational speaker! I have been blessed with the communication skills necessary to execute these two functions effectively, and have been doing so on a small scale for some time now!
Time to make me available to you ALL.
I have some family, in particular, my dad, who I have been coaching for several years now. I have taught my dad so many things about who he is! He always tells me that every time we end our conversation, he feels so charged up and powerful! He says that he is so confident that day and things are really bright. The effects last as long as he does what I told him. He hasn't read any of the books I recommended which has him growing at a slower rate than my mom, who I also coach.
My mom goes on to read not one but two books at a time, like me, and because she lives with me, she has access to my library. My parents, the ones who raised ME, are at ease with me as their life coach and motivator!
That tells you that there's a grace there that I use in the way I coach and motivate that has my parents comfortable with now, following my lead. Not only following my lead, but telling everyone they know about the light switches in the book. It's not just that they're proud of me as parents, they KNOW me and are truly benefiting from the priceless light switches.
Like- recognizing control dramas in peoples lives. My dad cracks me up when he randomly says "They need to read your book" or "You know he didn't read your book". It became second nature to refer to the book and the Light Switches.
Very Important to NOTE: I went to the school of EXPERIENCE! I know what I know that I know because I have been there. I am experienced and I have been chosen by GOD to do this
Stay tuned. I will be announcing a way very soon that I will be offering me to the masses!
I'm excited for this! I know there's a need and I'm up for the challenge! Get started now by getting the book, "TURN ON THE LIGHTS" (so you can see)
Reciprocity in Turn On The Lights refers to Karma and doing unto others as you want done to you. Whatever you say or do to a person, good or bad, you shall be rewarded. - Latisha Robb
The word I'm teaching my kids this week is Reciprocity. I love to use "big" words a lot in the way I speak because articulation ( the action of putting together words to form an idea or a feeling) is vital when communicating to others. I want my children to be the best! I make sure that the vocabulary that they hear at home will be above the standard outside. I pour a lot into my children because I know that they are carrying our families legacy. They also have purpose here on earth, so why not equip them with some armor to get ready?
Its definition is above, both in a general sense, and in social psychology, and Latisha Robb's sense. It is important as a human race, that we know this word, the definitions, and the application of the principals.
I know you all remember doing math and the teacher teaching the reciprocal while doing fractions. Flipping it over, it is the same. 2/3 =3/2 By multiplying these fractions, we get 1. WHOLE. BALANCE. EQUAL.
When we look in the mirror, our left hand is now on the right. The type of life we have, our children's behavior, the friends, the job, the love, the respect all is a reflection of what we are putting out. It is the reciprocal effect.
I listen to the universal language and I can understand a lot without words. Our senses are a lot stronger than we give ourselves credit for. Pay attention to you and your surroundings. You attracted that. What we are attracting is what we are putting out. You can tell what is being put out by what we're attracting!
I only want to attract the best. I realize that darkness is attracted to light, so I have to be careful in how I spend my energy. I intend to pour so much of my energy into helping people everyday, that I am attracting my most positive life. I understand that to whom much is given, much is required.
My energy is inside of me bubbling to get out! It is a requirement of mine to shine, so that all others may shine.
All the while I am executing these things, I keep in mind that my children are watching and learning from me. I am putting positive in them so they can know how to put it out.
