Featured Artwork: The Otolith Group, The Nucleus of the Great Union, MP4, 32 minutes 35 seconds, 2017. A project by The Otolith Group for Streams of Consciousness: Recontres de Bamako Biennale Africaine de la Photographie, 12eme edition. __________ On 16 June 1953, Richard Wright, the renowned African-American novelist, essayist, dramatist and critic arrived at the busy port of Takoradi in the Western region of Gold Coast on the shop Accra. For ten weeks, Wright travelled throughout the Gold Coast, where he witnessed Kwame Nkrumah’s Convention People’s Party, West Africa’s first mass socialist party, as it campaigned for independence from British rule. In September 1954, Wright published Black Power: A Record of Reactions in a Land of Pathos, a text whose conceptual restlessness registered his existential alienation from the Gold Coast and challenged readers expecting a meditation on racial belonging. The Otolith Group returns to this archive to compose new links between its unseen images, its digital formats, its historical texts and subsequent critical texts, The Nucleus of Great Union reimagines the digital afterlives of Wright’s images by plotting the trajectories of their movement through the networks of black internationalism in the age of platform capitalism. ___________ #theOtolithGroup #otolithgroup #otolith # NucleusoftheGreatUnion #streamsofconsciousness #RichardWright #1954 #videoart #historical #decolinization #WesternAfrica #GoldCoast #BlackPower #Repost @madamekoyo • • • • • • Streams of Consciousness is a touching edition of the Bamako Biennial of Photography ——— The Nucleus of the Great Union, 2017, #theotolithgroup #kodwoeshun @saga_a_saga_

#divinegoddessthoughts Happy Rising luvs. This message is to remind you that there are some seasons in your life that requires your stillness and your focus. ⁣ ⁣ When you are in that season of becoming it is dark.It is uncomfortable, and most times lonely.⁣ ⁣ Sometimes during that period you are broke, jobless, homeless, friendless and cant get along with family. PAUSE.⁣ ⁣ What you are forgetting is the applications you sent out, the phone calls you made to find a place, the silence you endured to not give your energy to arguments.You are becoming. You planted seeds but sometimes you are in the thick of the earth that you can't see the sky.⁣ ⁣ Remind yourself that the same day the seed is planted won't be the same day you will eat the fruit.The same day the Caterpillar goes into his cocoon won't be the same day he will turn into a butterfly.⁣ ⁣ Your season of becoming will stretch you and have you questioning everything you thought was real. It is this time you must stay focused and keep going. You are in the bowels of creation and to manifest your reality takes work, time and unwavering belief that it will come.⁣ ⁣ Be sure to remind yourself that life works in waves. Sometimes it swells and there is a period of abundance and then sometimes it crashes and you must gather, plant your seeds, water them and wait on them to grow.⁣ ⁣ Be patient with yourself. All is not lost. You need to be your own best friend during this time and if you have people in your corner even better. Breathe.⁣ ⁣ Allow the season to happen and prepare yourself for what's coming. This season requires your faith. Unwavering faith. You have to see it before it happens. Bank on yourself. Kill the distractions and feed your focus.⁣ ⁣ You are loved.⁣ ⁣ #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

We all want to be loved and accepted for who we are underneath it all but sometimes out of shame and fear we hide ourselves.⁣ ⁣ We think if people really see us they wouldnt truly love all of us. So what do we do? We bend, twist, turn and try as best as we can to give people as much of ourselves as they would accept. This my loves is a disservice to self. If we live our lives like this all the time we never truly get to see who genuinely accepts us.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ It is not easy by any measure to be fully vulnerable and visible or to accept vulnerability from others.⁣ ⁣ Vulnerability is a gift and that isn't for everyone. The ideal recipient of your gift of is someone who has proven themselves to be trustworthy, non-judgmental, patient, compassionate, kind, and they have your best interest at heart .⁣ ⁣ By allowing yourself to be seen and making the effort to see others and accept them for who they are you give yourself and others permission to take up space, to liberate their gifts, gifts hidden out of fear. Gifts sometimes we ourselves don't even know is present.⁣ ⁣ So here is a challenge, let's start off small...the next time someone asks how you are doing tell the truth. Share honestly how you are feeling without being afraid. ⁣ ⁣ I hope we all will find our tribe of people who will make it comfortable for us to light up our darkness and share all sides of ourselves.⁣ ⁣ You are loved guys...so loved and I mean ALL of you...the good, the bad and the ugly.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

#divinegoddessthoughts Some of us are so hard on ourselves. We second guess everything and when we make a mistake we ruminate, we beat ourselves up. We talk down to ourselves daily and most times we don't have the self confidence to believe when people compliment us. PAUSE. We need to stop being our own enemy and instead extend some compassion. Most times the way we doubt and put ourselves down we would never do that to anyone else. Learn to become your own friend. Write down the doubts as they come up and sit with them. Most of them you'll find are b/s. Sure you may have failed at something or screwed something up. So what? Some of the most successful people failed or effed shit up. You deserve better than someone in your head always putting you down. Separate yourself from those thoughts. Be kind to yourself. When they come up realize you have the power to follow them or replace them with good things. Understand that you are human. You will fail but dont stay stuck because you defeat yourself in your head every day. You are loved. P.s. read this as many times as you need to for it to stick and when you start doubting yourself again...your magical effing self come back to this post. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

I remember when I was younger I felt people had to earn respect. I felt that they had to have a certain status, speak a certain way, dress accordingly, and fit into some kind of imaginary box to be worthy. Then I unlearned that way of thinking. Respect should be given. Disrespect should be earned. No one deserves your disrespect because they don’t behave in the manner you’ve convinced yourself to believe is respectable. People, especially black people (MaGes especially) owe the world nothing. We don’t owe you assimilation or “respectability.” These are all social rules that people have put into place in order to have reasons to be above others. It’s a way to police the bodies and identities of those around you. Just because you choose to live differently or partake in different activities doesn’t mean you get to look down on, police, or disrespect others. #RoseSpeaks #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationalTrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #blackpower #social justice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #BlackLove #Blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #sayhername #blackliberation #supportblackbusiness #carefreeblackkids #carefreeblackgirl #blackboyjoy #blackbruja

December To-Do List Repost : @divinegoddess2511 It's the first day of the final month of 2019. Dont let that scare you. You still have time. Take a minute and breathe everytime that anxiety comes up. There are 12 more months ahead of you to do more. Don't sweat it. Take one small step every day. One tiny one. It will get done. Don't judge your chapter 5 by someone else's chapter 25. You got this. Be patient with yourself and realize that your life is yours and it's okay to operate on your own timing. The money will come, the job will come, you will figure it out. Write the goals down, then write down the steps you'll take to get it done, then get it done bit by bit. You got this! 2019 is a hellavuh year. 2020 will be a great one. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

There will be times when you can't be bothered with another discussion about another problem. You may even question whether or not your relationship can work. You question yourself, your partner and in the midst of all of the frustration you probably will shut down. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐚𝐧. 𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐞. It is normal to feel resistance especially when you are being asked to face yourself. ⁣ ⁣ Who wants to get up and deal with discomfort? Certainly not our brain. It's wired to protect us, keep us safe and comfortable. But guess what? Sometimes that comfortable position keeps us stagnant, unhealed and broken. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Relationships stretches us. They are hard. They can be stressful.Many of us leave and seek salvation in other relationships thinking maybe the problem was with our partner. Moving from person to person doesn't remove the problem. ⁣ ⁣ Conflict is inevitable. Sometimes it's down right exhausting but it has the power to bring you closer together if you go through it healthily. ⁣ ⁣ If we listen, if we try to understand, if we let go, if we show up being respectful.Give yourself some time. Give your partner time. You won't always have it figured out but if you and your partner show up every day to do the work you will make it to the other side.⁣ ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

Understanding your partner's triggers is a whole love language. So is holding space, standing in the gap when they are working through some tough things, being supportive instead of meeting them with shame and judgement, being aware of our responses, understanding the ego stories and holding ourselves accountable. It isn't always easy. Relationships almost always will trigger us. It exposes us if we let it to a deeper understanding of ourselves and what we need to work on. So are you focusing on understanding or are you focusing on being right and winning? Are you only meeting your partner with judgement? Are you really hearing them when they speak? Or are you shutting down to avoid doing the work? Are you repeating your problems to outside sources and letting external influences determine how you show up? Are you really intune or did you turn away? It's not always easy facing the truth. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

Y’all. I’m really 30. Like. Someone decided I should be grown. A whole adult. My twenties were one hell of a learning experience. I loved, I lost, I grieved, and I grew. 3 years ago I wasn’t sure I’d see thirty because I had decided I was done with life. However life said she wasn’t done with me. My doctor had no idea how I walked into the hospital with the amount of blood I lost...but I made it. Every day since then (12/27/16) has been a journey. A fight even. I’ve been intentional in my healing and with my growth. I’ve learned how to let go of things that do not serve me and how to embrace those that do. My twenties taught me about myself. I learned what I like. I learned what I loved. I learned who I was beyond the realm of pleasing others and it’s magical. Taking time to truly discover who you are and what you require is the highest form of self love. My twenties took me on a journey of heartache and healing and it made me look forward to stepping into this third decade of my life with dignity, peace, power, and poise. I felt that 30 was going to hurt because I hadn’t reached my full potential. I haven’t achieved anything miraculous. I hadn’t made my mark....then a voice asked me, “by whose standards?!” From 20-29 I climbed and moved mountains. I walked through hell and smiled. I created a life from nothing. I did pretty freaking good. My twenties prepared me for the marvel that I’m going to call my thirties. I was scared...but today I woke up ready. #RoseSpeaks #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationalTrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #blackpower #social justice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #BlackLove #Blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #sayhername #blackliberation #supportblackbusiness #carefreeblackkids #carefreeblackgirl #blackboyjoy #blackbruja

#divinegoddessthoughts There is common misconception that good relationships come effortlessly. While we may wish it and Hollywood may sell it, it isn't so. You've got to work at love to keep it alive and well. Love takes real work. It takes effort to make time and space for another especially while balancing everything else that life throws at us- our job, business, kids, friendships etc. Love taps into our deepest vulnerabilities. Sometimes it reveals some harsh truths about us. It can be uncomfortable. Resistance is normal. The thing is sometimes when it gets hard we abandon ship. I am not talking about abusive or toxic relationships now. I am talking about working through the discomfort of finding a common ground. Balancing two different souls who both feel the need to be seen and heard in their union. Love takes dedication.We have to show up ready to be seen and ready to dig deep if we want things to work. It takes respect and being attuned with each others needs. Sometimes it's a delicate balance between giving and taking,between generosity and personal satisfaction. Other times its holding space for each other, being aware of the ego and the stories it tell, being self aware especially of how we project our wounds. When we find someone who is ready to dig deep and roll up their sleeves and work through things then consider yourself blessed. When you both show an interest in making the unit better, in being united against the problem instead of tearing each other down then you would've been actively showing up in love. Time, patience, understanding, communication, openness and honesty, respect and trust are key components of a solid relationship.See and be seen, hear and be heard. I hope we will all get to experience love with effort. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

Things I learnt this week:⁣ ⁣ ❤ If everyone is waiting to be heard then no one is being heard.⁣ ⁣ ❤ Breathe through difficult moments. Breathing helps us to regulate and come down from high emotions. It will be painful, you may cry but the discomfort will pass. Feel it or you will repeat it. The only way forward is through.⁣ ⁣ ❤ Forgiveness means releasing the anger, pain and resentment. It requires us to grieve. Committing to forgiveness as a default answer instead of being honest about where we are in the grieving process will create problems. Give yourself time to arrive at forgiveness.⁣ ⁣ ❤ Honour your feelings. Question them. Sit with them. Hold them. The feelings came for a reason, find the reason and you will find the answer. ⁣ ⁣ ❤ Everyone needs something from us as well as we have needs of others. Discover the need and you will see through everything. ⁣ ⁣ ❤ Silence tells you most things you need to know. People say a lot when you just listen. Listen to their body language and their words. Everyone has a story to tell.⁣ ⁣ ❤ Adversity tests the depth of our relationship with others and ourselves. ⁣ ⁣ ❤ Saying goodbye to the things that do not serve you can be one of the best things you will ever do for yourself.⁣ ⁣ ❤ Your life is a gift.Do not lower your vibration to fit in or be accepted. Let others rise to meet you.⁣ ⁣ ❤ Love is possible but it requires two persons showing up everyday committed to understanding the depths of each other's soul, being honest with themselves about who they are, honouring each others need for autonomy and being conscious of the stories the ego creates to protect self.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

Decolonizing the Mind Part 3B Due to centuries of British colonization, the English language spread around the world and is now an international language. English became a common language for communication within South Asia, which is home to hundreds of languages and dialects. While Great Britiain colonized the South Asian continent and formed a government to govern its colony, English became a language of prestige. Slowly but surely, English became crucial for local South Asians who wanted to go into business, government, law, civil services, or high ranking positions in any industry. English had become a language for the "well educated", while South Asian languages were viewed as inferior to it. The world's languages are all somehow connected, and English itself has a root connection with South Asian languages. For example, the world cash is derived from the Tamil word Kasu, and the world mother derives from the Sanskrit word Matr. The South Asian community needs to be proud of the languages that have come from their regions. Not knowing English does not make people uneducated or inferior as they may speak, read, and write in another language. Two plus two will always equal four, regardless of which language we solve it in. It is the knowledge of an individual that makes them educates, not which language they choose to convey their knowledge in. As a community we must stop degrading those who are not able to speak English well or with an accent and look beyond these barriers. We must stop viewing our mother tongue as an embarrassment or a language inferior to English as many people within the community do. #Language #AncientLanguages #SouthAsia #Colonization #Decolinization #onepeople #Knowledge #Tamil #Sanskrit #Hindi #Urdu #Punjabi #Pashto #Malyalam #Telugu #Gujarati #Kashmiri #Bengali #Nepali #Marathi #Sindhi #Assamese #Kannada #Persian #Dari

Everyone at some point of their life has felt worried. Worry is defined as " feeling or caused to feel anxious or troubled about actual or potential problems." ⁣ ⁣ I am a recovering worrier 😂 I can laugh now but having anxiety from as early as I could remember, I'd think of the most horrible things that could happen and then work my way through how I'd protect myself from what my mind created as a threat. It wasn't easy. I'd bite my nails (still do), pens, pencils etc.ironically to calm down lol.⁣ ⁣ According to The Essence of Success by Earl Nightingale only 8% of the things we worry about actually become a reality. 8%! Worrying is linked fear. This morning I was reminded to focus on my breath during these moments. To breathe, come back to the present and realize that the future I am anxious about isn't here as yet and I have within my power the ability to shift how I think of the future. ⁣ ⁣ The sky wont fall, I wont lose everyone in an instant and life will go on regardless. Pain is inevitable but knowing this doesn't mean that we should hold our breath and focus on what could happen. If anything knowing this should mean that we squeeze as much joy out of life right now and lean into it. It means we should laugh more, train our thoughts, observe when our fears come up and realize them for what they are...the brain trying to protect itself. Tell yourself that you are safe and you'll be alright.⁣ ⁣ How I am this picture (acting silly and carefree) that's how I'm trying to be when the bad moments come and the worrying grab hold. I will feel my fears but I will also realize I have the power to change the channel. Hope you will too. ⁣ ⁣ Feel it but don't get carried away by it. Leave the worrying and focus on the reality you want to create. Tell yourself that you are safe.⁣ ⁣ #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

Happy Rising everyone. Today as you go through your day try to see people for who they are and not who you desire them to be.Remove the tint. Not everyone will give like you, love or even live like you. People are unique in their own way and just like you they do things differently. Try to appreciate them as they come instead of trying to filter your experience with them through the choices you would make. When we allow ourselves to really see people we quickly learn if they are for us. There is no illusion. Have a Happy Tuesday.

Decolonizing The Mind: Part 3A A Small History of Language South Asia is home to the world's oldest languages of Tamil and Sanskrit, with Tamil still being used in the modern world. Tamil, beloning to the Dravidian language family, is the oldest language in the world, tracing its roots back 5,000 years. Tamil is said to have influenced many languages in South Asia, including Sanskrit, as you can detect ancient Sanskrit texts borrowing some words and grammar structure from Tamil. The Sanskrit language, although not being commonly used in modern-day, is still used to study ancient Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist scriptures. Sanskrit has also influenced many Indo-Aryan languages as well as English to an extent. Although Tamil and Sanskrit influenced many South Asian languages, Farsi and Arabic have also contributed to South Asian linguistics. Tamil, Sanskrit, Farsi, and Arabic have given birth to some of the most beautiful languages spoken in South Asia, such as Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Telugu, Malayalam, Bengali, Marathi, Nepali, etc. Over the years, many South Asian languages have also transformed due to different cultural influences. Regadless of this fact, these languages have always been apart of the identity of 1.89 billion people residing in South Asia. People are being educated in these languages and are excelling in their communities even today as their ancestors did for centuries. Be proud of your mother tongue! #Tamil #Sanskrit #Farsi #Arabic #Hindi #Urdu #Punjabi #Bengali #Kashmiri #Telugu #Malayalam #Marathi #Pashto #Sandhi #Bangladesh #India #Pakistan #Afghanistan #SriLanka #Nepal #Language #AncientLanguages #OnePeople #Unity #Diversity #Love #Community #Colonization #Decolinization

#divinegoddessthoughts Sometimes the only blockage in our way is our refusal to let old patterns of behaviour go, friendships that have long expired and beliefs that no longer serve us. We can't move if we are standing still and a lot of the things we complain about is by our own hand. We say we want love, true love but fail to commit to love once it shows up. Halfway in and halfway out. Still flirting with people online, still entertaining exes. We say we want success but we don't invest time in our craft, network or get financially literate. We wait for things to come to us and do not put in the work. The universe responds to our energy. We have to be willing to let go to allow other things to flow. Letting go requires us to step out in faith. Everything that doesn't serve where we are going in life has to go. Once we clear the path things will start to flow. Once we get unapologetic and committed about our goals+ being in alignment it will flow. Let's stop standing in our own way. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

Not everything is meant for everyone. The sweetest parts are meant to be unfolded to those who understand sacredness. Those whose hands will build you up, whose actions will serve your greater good.

Quality Time Words of Affirmation Physical Touch Acts of Service Gifts 5 ways scientist discovered that people commonly express love. You may receive love as undivided attention and your partner as gifts. No matter how much time you give your partner unless they are receiving gifts they won't feel as loved. Love requires understanding of each other...our wants, needs and differences. May we all find and receive love the way we want it. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

@tinys_journey

#Repost @rosespeaks_ For those who are new to Tiny’s journey I’ll try to give a condensed version. Tiny was born in March or 2013. Her pregnancy and labor was pretty rough. I had HG and we were informed she had a heart murmur. I was already in shock about her because *drum roll please* I had my IUD in when I conceived. Fast forward to her delivery. She somehow got stuck during the c-section and I had to have an extension to the scar. My internal scar has a J extension. When she finally came out she wasn’t breathing. They administered CPR and gave her O2. I don’t remember too much after that because I passed out. I may have to have my sister fill in those blanks. Tiny couldn’t regulate her body temp when we got to the room and she was really yellow. The nurse tried to convince me she was just a “yellow baby”. She began having some issues in the hospital but they brushed me off. After I bought her home she began having seizures. At one point she was having about 30 a day. She would also randomly stop breathing as well. She was on an apnea monitor for the first 6 months of her life so that we could monitor her respirations and her heart rate (she would randomly go tachycardic also) While she was in the hospital for the seizures we discovered she has neonatal hypertension. They believe she may have had a stroke while I was pregnant. She was around 3 or 4 weeks old when we discovered this. While all of this was going on we learned that her GI system was giving her issues. She was unable to tolerate dairy or anything with traces of it. She was also aspirating and has had aspiration pneumonia over a dozen times. We later learned that she has an arachnoid cyst on her brain. She also has severe GERD that contributed to her feeding issues. She was also diagnosed with cardiomegaly which was a side effect of her hypertension issues. Most of her first two years of life were spent in the hospital, at appointments, or in therapy. As she got older we learned that she has ASD and sensory processing disorder. We began therapies and she’s doing great with them. As she grew we were told she would outgrow many of her issues. (Continued in comments)

Happy Rising my luvs and a Happy Thursday. Today is another day filled with tremendous possibilities. Just want to remind you of your power. We all have the ability to shift energy. Decide which cup you would want to pour into today. Visualize the day from start to finish. It's easy to be moved to anger but to process, set boundaries and channel it elsewhere that's magic. Create the type of day you would want. You are magic. Have an awesome day. You are loved♥️ #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

#repost When two imperfect people come together it is common for unintentional harm to occur, especially when they do not know themselves well. This is not the same as intentional abuse, which arises out of unwholesome mental volitions that are based in greed and hate— this type of behavior should not be tolerated. On the other hand, it is important to accept the reality that when two people form a partnership, it is natural for friction to arise as they best learn to love themselves and each other. Unintentional harm in relationships often occurs because of a lack of mental clarity, when we do not see/know ourselves well it creates a significant distance between us and the person we care for. Through misunderstandings, a lack of complete honesty and undeveloped emotional maturity it is easy for conflicts to arise that strain the connection and tests the commitments. When two people in a loving partnership commit to doing their personal internal work while they simultaneously work on supporting the harmony of their relationship they are more likely to succeed in treating each other better. As we heal ourselves, our relationship will naturally become healthier. Sending love to all beings. May we all heal ourselves deeply. May we all be happy and free. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

Happy Rising. Here is a gentle reminder that you are in control of your peace. If it makes you unhappy do not entertain it. If you get that uncomfortable feeling inside when some people call it's literally your spidey senses/ intuition tingling. Listen to yourself. Honour your feelings. We often like to put other people's comfort and needs ahead of our own. STOP. It's critically important that you are honouring yourself. Everything else feels like betrayal. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

From an early age I learnt that not everyone responded well to depth. Some people couldn't swim, some could but only at the shallow end, some were strong but had little endurance and then there were those who would wade and chat and do synchronized swimming with me forever. Feed your soul. Align with your tribe and fucking thrive. Your life was not meant to be experienced in survival mode. THRIVE. Choose the swimmers who will explore your depths. Deep dive and LIVE. Anything less is a disservice and you'll be 80 wondering where the hell did your life go🤔 Refuse everything that doesn't make you live fully or get in alignment. The good stuff can't flow until you show up for yourself and keep only the deep swimmers. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

#divinegoddessthoughts It is a beautiful feeling to be in a space where you can unfold. A space where you are encouraged to be your whole self. No holds barred.A place of acceptance.A space where you can share all the thoughts that run through your head. Who do you trust with that? Who sees the tears and your shame? Do you always have to edit your story to feel accepted? Are you being your true self with the people you love? It's difficult sometimes to show everything. Scratch that...its terrifying. It's rare you aren't judged but nothing is sweeter than encountering those that speak so deeply to your soul and those who show themselves and let you know its safe. The feeling is beyond words. Be fucking pure and raw luvs. Strip down to the core and show yourself. You have truly not LIVED until you have experienced the terror and joy that comes from that deep trust. Thankful for my little tribe. - random thoughts on a Sunday 📸 random WhatsApp images 1/4 "Show me yourself"😊 #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

My luvs, sometimes you may get discouraged but remember being down in the dirt gives you a chance to look up at the stars. You are not your circumstances and you can have an amazing comeback. When you are ready to get up and do ONE small thing for yourself everyday itll be a massive comeback. Dont be discouraged. You have time. Dont know who needed this today but just know you are loved as always ♥️. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

#divinegoddessthoughts As children many of us were never taught how to regulate our emotions. Most times what we saw was anger as an outlet for high emotions or sadness. Two extremes. Most people I know never had parents who would walk them through down regulation that is the process of reducing intense emotions in the body. So we get upset and we either cry or lash out. Underneath all of that is pain and intense emotions we can't describe but feel like we should honour. There are other things we can do to help us down regulate like breathing, practicing mindfulness, meditation, progressive muscle relaxation etc. In the moment though if you were never wired to process like this you'd feel like these are nonsense. I promise though it helps. As we become more conscious and are triggered we must try to be a standing witness to ourselves, try to sit with our emotions and try to communicate what we feel without the intent to shame, hurt or be abusive to the other person. It takes practice to reprogramme and it takes discipline to try. You can do it and you are worth it. We are all learning. You are loved ♥️ Here are some tips on what to do when feeling overwhelmed. Hope you're having a good Friday and will have an amazing weekend. #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

#divinegoddessthoughts ⁣ ⁣ The wounded me would show up in relationships overextending myself to prove my worth. I think somewhere deep inside I believed that if I did all these things ( be domesticated, ignoring my own needs, self sacrificing) then maybe just maybe this person will love me and won't leave. How wrong was I for that🤦🏽‍♀️.⁣ ⁣ As I started to observe myself I realized the pattern and traced it back to my parent's break up and being separated from my Father at an early age. I realized that I was unconsciously trying to create conditions to correct my feelings of abandonment. ⁣ ⁣ I observed how I would tell my partner stories of how other person's desired me and while this may be true, it was rooted in the fear of abandonment. I wanted to ensure they knew I was desired so they wouldn't leave. Life doesn't work this way and living life from our wounds causes us to be limited in what we truly can get out of life and from others. ⁣ How many of us truly feel that we are enough in our friendships, relationships and even with family? ⁣ ⁣ 𝐁𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐬, do you feel like you are enough and will be accepted as you are without spending copious amounts of money in relationships? ⁣ ⁣ 𝐒𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐬 do you feel enough if you aren't having performance based sex or wearing makeup,designer clothes, driving the flashiest cars or having someone spend on you? ⁣ ⁣Do you feel enough if you aren't giving your family money?⁣ ⁣Where did all of these feelings come from? Are they yours? Are you trying to fulfill a need? Are you living someone else's pattern? ⁣ ⁣ Sis/ Bros, let me just remind you right now, 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐀𝐑𝐄 𝐞𝐧𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡. You don't need to have a diamond cat or loads of money to be accepted for who you are, you dont need to be the tall guy or wear designer stuff. You are simply enough. You are a whole human. You are special. When you start believing this and acting accordingly you will attract the people who truly reflect this. It all starts with you. ⁣ ⁣ Do some introspection and see how you are showing up. Are you attracting the right people? Are you betraying yourself? Enter a state of awareness. Observe your patterns.

Everything I wanted was already found inside of me. All the love I desired, the way I wanted others to show up for me, the trust I wanted to share with someone, the consistency, the belief, the love...it was all found inside me.⁣ ⁣ The last 5 years has been a journey back to self. One of confronting my shadow self (all the things that carried shame, regret,disbelief and dissatisfaction) and of pouring the love I so freely gave to others back into myself and my life.⁣ ⁣ I watched myself unearth the wounds, sit with them, hold them, cry and then heal by loving all of me. As I started to love myself and move in that vibration, life responded. ⁣ ⁣ There was a fundamental shift in the things I would and wouldn't accept. Friendships and relationships ended and in the thick of it I felt broken but I wasn't. What I was doing was clearing the path to plant the seeds that my soul had thirsted for.I was issuing a call to the universe to say "this is all of me. I deserve ONLY the best, I give myself only the best and by doing so I attract only the best." ⁣ ⁣ I regret nothing. Doors have opened and continue to open in my life, I attracted a whole tribe of people who see me and pour love into me, I manifested love and alignment with my life purpose. Things are falling into place and it's all because I realized it starts with me.⁣ ⁣ So now, I want to share this gift with the world. I am working on establishing a practice and providing resources that will help you manifest the life you so desire. We are in this together!Look out for more in 2020. Thank you for rocking with me for these past years and seeing me unfold through these posts. I have gained a whole new family. Love you guys♥️ ⁣ #generationalhealing #generationalcurses #generationaltrauma #ancestralhealing #blackhealing #blackmentalhealthmatters #blackmentalhealth #radicalselflove #socialjustice #decolinize #decolinization #blackpride #communitylove #selflove #communityhealing #blacklove #blackpower #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #freedomfighter #sayhername

#divinegoddessthoughts 𝐒𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐦𝐞𝐞𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞: So what do you do?⁣ ⁣ 𝐌𝐞: What makes your heart happy? What are your self care rituals? What's your relationship like with friends and family? Are you putting yourself first?⁣ ⁣ I believe people show us who they are all the time we just refuse to see. You see it in the way they treat themselves and others. ⁣ ⁣ The thing is sometimes we are so caught up in materialism we do not see the people in front of us. My observation has been that most people enter into relationships with a dependent mindset instead of one of interdependence. ⁣ ⁣ We first listen out for cues on how individuals can make room for us and be resourceful instead of drilling down to the depths of the person and seeing beyond the mask. This is why a lot of us find ourselves in relationships and start saying " oh you changed on me." No Sis/ Bro you simply didnt take the time to see beyond their social/ economic status. ⁣ ⁣ People are more than their jobs/ bank accounts. Like you, they are bringing a world of experience and getting to know someone takes a present and mindful mindset. You have to look in order to see. ⁣ ⁣ So look beyond the surface stuff. Look deeper and see how they treat themselves and others...you'll learn most of what you need to know there. Remember most masks expire after 90 days.
