Hola world! Welcome to the mark of my spiritual journey’s plateau of discovering, cultivating and celebrating EverythingShaquana! And thank you sincerely for sharing in my experience and learning more about me and my vision of EverythingShaquana.com.

A beautiful reflection of God, a spiritual being awakening to a flesh experience, I am Shaquana!
A beautiful reflection of God, a spiritual being, awakening to a flesh experience, I am Shaquana!

I am Shaquana Gardner, known on stage as Essentially Unique, by family as Quana, and by homies as Shaq. A growing seedling from the cracked concrete corners of the Big Apple, I am a jack of all trades extraordinaire, poised to embrace all that comes my way. Once a twisted soul, encompassing a tormented heart, I am now in a wonderfully glorious place of inconsequential peace seeking to stake claim in the army of love, beauty, and compassion, and fight in the war against hate, envy, and greed.

Thus, I offer you EverythingShaquana, a conundrum of experiences, thoughts and universal truths, reflective of the life and times of a self proclaimed ‘Modern Age 20 Something Visionary‘. EverythingShaquana offers a unique conduit into a space of soul piercing conversation and mind blowing conceptualization on every elephant in all the rooms of everyday life.

When I say “every elephant in all the rooms of everyday life”, I am talking about the family secrets that undeniably enable the hyper prevalence of multi-generational sexual abuse that occurred in my family, my friend’s family, and so many more families than anyone ever cares or dares to mention. I am talking about the huge elephant squashing the ugly truth about Los Angeles’ homeless population that’s edited out of every cinematographic portrayal of  Downtown Los Angeles and New York City’s slaughterhouse of equal and affordable housing protection, development, and maintenance for it’s residents.

I am also referring to the elephant that crowds a world where the news’ top coverage are reality TV celebrity trending topics, propagandized opinion saturated “current event” updates and FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s latest fashion jaw dropper, while the White House attempts to initiate the beginning of World War III with North Korea, Nikki Minaj, Beyonce, and Katy Perry pose as feminists and literally, everyone wages all out war against Black youth.

There is no longer any room to breathe the purifying air of universality and spirituality, let alone any room to grow into the divine beings we are all meant to be, in a congested world of realities that no one will acknowledge, be aware of and accept as not only truth, but as the source of the poison currently decimating the world as we know it. These conversations and mind benders are meant to be an addition to the mission to reconstructing the spiritual and metaphysical direction of my brothers and sisters throughout the world.

Soooooooo….. Without much ado, I present to you, EverythingShaquana.com!!!!!

Blessings & Peace to you all!!
