"I use poetry to love, create, heal and teach."

I'm Jaiye Empress!*

I am a spiritual storyteller, creative visonary, master manifester, and prolific poetic prophetess!


I am also the uniquely self-proclaimed G.R.I.O.T-Soul Seer (G.S.S.), which stands for:


I envision, write and spit potent poetic sh*t!

*Jaiye is a Yoruba word that means to enjoy life.  

I pronounce my name like "jay,"


NOT the traditional way,  "ja/yey"

Poet, Coach, Authoress, G.S.S...

From public speaking performances, 1-to-1 and group coaching/mentorship, virtual and in person events and workshops,  I bring people together and I help connect individuals to their own personal power through the powers of art and creativity.

Put very simply:


I want to inspire you to inspire yourself!

To learn how to love and heal yourself unapologetically!

Check out my first book!

My very raw, candid self-love story told through a series of poems, quotes & journal entries.


This is the soul anchor you've been looking for! 

Your sacred self-guide for healing, accepting and embracing your sensual, sexual and spiritual selves!


May my story inspire you to delve deeper into your own. 

To own ALL parts of yourself unapologetically: 

your wildness as well as your softness...
