The Merging of Souls ~ The Power of Black Love

A lot of Men have millionaire potential, but need a strong woman to help birth that thing out!

-Juanita Bynum

is a lot of truth in this statement, but one must be careful to understand the
dynamic through which this takes place. I believe every man (person) has
millionaire potential. I have witnessed those with autism, down syndrome, and
other conditions that most would feel limits them do extraordinary things.

our men have millionaire potential, and a significant part of reaching that
potential will be the woman they choose. However, there are some things that
must be considered.

Before a woman can enter the equation, he must have a lucid knowledge of his
“work” (this will not likely be his current job). A man’s work is
what was designed to do.

He must be able to clearly articulate his vision, as well as explain how he
will integrate her into the equation. Instead of asking what he drives, where
he works, or where he lives, she should ask him what his vision is. His vision
explains where he is going, which should be important to her because if she
chooses him, she will be going in the same direction.

He must be committed to his work, not sitting around waiting on her to come
along. She should be able to easily identify his potential by observing him.

The spiritual birthing process is not magic. It will not happen overnight. So,
both will have to be patient and committed. No matter how honorable the purpose
of this now united vision, there will be forces at play that seek to destroy
the work.

The woman’s role is that of an incubator. If a man plants his genetic seed, she
returns to him his offspring. If he buys groceries, she will create a meal. If
he gives her a house, she will transform it into a home. If he trusts her with
his vision, she will carry it in her spiritual womb and birth the manifestation
of his potential. In the same way, if he gives her sorrow and pain, she will
give him hell.

your wives (significant others) are not surrogates for your mother. They are
your partners. It is your responsibility to determine how to integrate both
roles so that the partnership works. It is your job to create an environment
that allows her to thrive in her gifts and talents.

your man is not a project. He is not there for you to mold and shape into what
you think he should be. In fact, if he has not figured out who he is and
committed to it, he is not ready for you yet. Your role is that of a provider
of peace and support as he provides you with safety and security. Challenge him
to grow and live in the fullness of his potential. In return, he will provide
the space for you to live in your own vision and purpose as dictated by your
design and relationship with God.

Together, there is nothing that the two of you can’t do, but you must work in unity toward common goals while giving each other space to be who you inherently are. When feminine energy merges with masculine energy, a synergistic force is created, allowing the couple to accomplish what they could not accomplish as individuals. This is about much more than romance. It is about destiny! ~ Rick Wallace, Ph.D., Psy.D.
