Apryl Yvonne Scott

Apryl Yvonne Scott considers herself an artist, activist, and healer who enjoys expressing herself through an array of mediums. She describes herself as, “kindly but reserved, pleasant yet stern. I am rationally irrational, imaginative, and determined. But the word I feel that best describes me is passionate.”

In her debut collection of personal, curated poems, Apryl Scott has already proven herself to possess a unique voice. Filled with self-introspection and rich and varied verse, the book of jade is the artistically interpreted manifestation of her own spiritual awakening. And in this volume, she expresses her love of words through well-crafted verse that she hopes will give her raw emotions voice and inspire others.

You can purchase Apryl’s book at Stillwater Books: https://www.stillwaterbooksri.com/book-jade-used

  1. Congratulations Apryl on your new book! I love poetry, I used to write poems for myself or for when a loved one passed away as a remeberance. I have a fear of drowning, I don’t swim, so I don’t get in pools, even though, I have gotten in my sisters spa, which is only 5 feet deep, but just thinking that I could drown because I do panic , when all I have to do is put my feet down and stand up and not drown, while I am in her spa. Have a great rest of the week and stay safe. Best wishes in your writing and in every thing you do, it sounds like you are doing Great! ❤

    1. Thank you for the well wishes Alicia and for sharing your thoughts. I find it interesting that you chose to share your fear of water, when I just finished viewing Jungle Cruise, where the main female character has a fear a water and never learned to swim. My heart goes out to you and know that you have the power to overcome anything. Namaste. – Apryl

  2. The word fear itself is something I wished I didn’t fear. I don’t like looking over a balcony from up high, nor do I want to be near the edge of a drop off. I wished I didn’t panic in large crowds. I don’t like being around a lot of people anyway. I keep away from large crowds by choice.

    1. Hello Bonnie,
      Wishing is most definitely part of the process of manifesting ANYTHING. However, the wish is just one ingredient. You’ll need all the right ingredients to bring that dream into reality. It’s less about the choices we make, and more about the intentions behind them that have the power to create miracles and rapid transition. Namaste. – Apryl

    1. Good morning, Thomas!
      The fact that you are getting in the water regardless of your fear is a good sign. It’s all part of the “lessons” life is meant to teach us, in order to master the “self” and the “mind”. The mind is simply another tool we have been gifted with to facilitate the fulfillment of our purpose. Namaste. – Apryl

    1. Hello Portia,
      You don’t have to be afraid. Any fear can be overcome.
      That is part of the purpose of life, to teach us how to properly utilize the energy around us and within us (as within, so without), so that it does not overwhelm us. This is part of my purpose and the work I do. Thank you for the accolades and namaste. – Apryl

    1. A fear of heights is one of the most common fears Karen. The cause or “root” of the fear widely varies from person to person however. I wonder what might be the root of your fear. Regardless, know that your fear has very little to do with heights and everything to do with how you have energetically processed past events and life experiences. Namaste. – Apryl

    1. Hello Debra!
      Thank you for leaving a comment. If you’re having a fear of crowds right now, that’s because the universe is telling you that you have negative energy you need to release, the anxiety you feel around others is the “force” of resistance. When their energy tries to mingle with yours, you are feeling the friction, which is usually unpleasant or uncomfortable. Healing and reprogram of one’s mind is a process. Be patient with yourself. Namaste. – Apryl

    1. Interesting comment Leslie. I mentioned this in another comment, that it is less about the choices we make and more about the intention behind them. Though your intention is to stay positive, the act of avoidance can be a negative one when out of balance. Fear is healthy when in balance with intuition and logic, that is, the heart and the mind. An excessive amount of fear causes us to be irrational, but a lack of fear causes us to be reckless. The key again is balanced. Once we better understand the energy we have the power to wield, we are able to utilize and manage it more effectively. Namaste. – Apryl

  3. Happy Thanksgiving, Apryl. I have been afraid of heights for as long as I can remember. Can’t climb ladders, can’t look over balconies even with a rail in front of me. I’d love to overcome that fear.

  4. I would like to overcome fear itself! I feel like many of my decisions have been negatively affected by being afraid, leading to being overly cautious and thus I lived a safer but less adventurous life. Good luck with your writing.

  5. How apropos that you would be featured on Thanksgiving Day. Poetry, passion and spiritual awakening – perfect! Truthfully I don’t even like to give voice to my greatest fear in case it’s listening…
    Happy Thanksgiving Apryl Yvonne Scott! Yvonne is my mother’s name… and I hope she’s listening to my prayers from the heavens above…
