If you are struggling with getting in tune with your creative vision, Akeem provides physical and mental exercises to help you tap into your true spirit. The best way to become more intuitive is to embrace the skills that allow you to add extra intention into your day to day life, and create daily rituals to check in with yourself and stay on track for what is serving you best.

Akeem believes that our ability to achieve greatness is directly correlated to our ability to adapt and create without second-guessing ourselves. By recognizing the patterns in your life, tuning into what your spirit truly needs, and fueling our bodies with the appropriate things we can position our brains onto a path of enlightenment.

Quotes

“I look at tuning in as just being able to listen to the signs that your body and your mind are telling you.” (6:30)

“When we are talking about creation and being creative, it’s all aspects of life. It is not just taking a photo, not just taking videos, it’s also being able to look into your mind and scan your mind and replace anything that isn’t serving you, replace anything that doesn’t make you feel like you can create better.” (13:29)

“The best way to become more intuitive is to understand if this is helping me and if this is not. You just have to go back to tuning in and just asking that question, ‘is this helping me, is this serving me?’” (30:08)

“Our brain is trying to keep us safe, but we got to know when we have to take control and be those creators of our life and of our destiny.” (47:33)

“When you listen to that inner voice, it is just allowing you to be yourself in what you really want to do right now.” (57:24)
