Moving Beyond Survival

Welcome to podcast episode 41! Many of us are so use to surviving that we don’t know what it means to thrive. Why are we willing to accept surviving as a way of life? What does it mean to let go of this deprivation? In this podcast, I talk about how recovery gave me permission to dream, hope and step into a vision of wholeness. Are you ready to claim yours?

This episode is sponsored by Self Love Rehab, A 12 week course to learn the foundational tools for revolutionary black self love. You will learn a 90 day empowerment system with wellness goal setting, understanding how racism has impacted your self esteem and how to set boundaries and build confidence  as a black women.

3 Daily Essentials for Racial Wellness.

One of the most powerful things I’ve learned over the years is that as long as racism (white supremacy is alive), our pain will be cyclical if it is not managed on a daily basis. We need nurturing tools to help us navigate the impact of our oppression to help us stay connected to our greatness and each other. In this live stream I share 3 core tools, the 3 R’s that should be included in your daily practice. Watch, absorb, go forth and be great!

How ‘Black Time’ Destroys Self Esteem.

Chronic lateness, or  ‘Black Time’ as we call it, is something that many of us laugh about and accept as part of our culture. However, in line with what I’m teaching in the Self Love Rehab course, I believe that chronic lateness can also be a symptom of low self esteem. In this video, I will help you explore your relationship with time and how time boundaries can be a powerful tool for healing transformation.

Surrender to Self Love

When our life experience has been dominated by pain, its hard to trust others, our Higher Power, ourselves. This mistrust makes us vulnerable to the insanity of trying to control  everything. Many of us are so used to suffering that it feels hard to open up to wonder of what it means to be human.

In this podcast, I talk about the power of surrender. Surrender is when we allow ourselves to take small loving actions to self nurture even when it feels uncomfortable and we’re afraid of the outcome.

Today, I will let go of my what does not serve me and surrender to the power of self love.

I love You and I’m Listening…….

I love you and I’m listening…..

Have you ever had that conversation with the wounded part of yourself?

I’m really excited about today’s podcast because I’m sharing some creative parts of myself that I hope you will find comforting. This episode is a mixture of poetry, affirmation and meditation.

I love you and I’m listening…..

Enjoy.

‘How can I embrace black beauty when I’m tired of feeling ugly?’

It’s difficult to love our blackness when we’re constantly being fed that we’re ugly via the system of racism. In this webclass, I break down the truths you need to explore to reclaim your body and celebrate your black femininity.

  1. Where did you learn/internalise that blackness was ugly?
  2. How was racism internalised and acted out as self hate in your family/community?
  3. What are the negative internal scripts you say about yourself and your identity?

Once you have told the truth about these questions in your journal or within a safe space, you will have a deeper understanding of what narrative is yours and what belongs to your dysfunctional environment. Join me and a group of other healing sista’s at the sista circle to share, heal and explore solutions to honour and nurture your blackalicious beauty!

Faith : Kwanzaa Day 7

Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

Faith is defined as having complete trust in someone or something. It can also be anchored in spiritual conviction rather than proof.

Under the system of racism, the unheard, recycled pain within our families mean that many of us have lost faith in ourselves and each other.

The restoration of faith requires us to first rebuild the faith within ourselves. To keep our promises to ourselves. As we begin to believe in ourselves, we will attract people, places and things which will restore our faith.

Affirmation: I have faith in the virtues of my ancestors to restore Maat (balance and harmony), and bring peace within myself, across the diaspora and the planet.

Creativity: Kwanzaa Day 6

Today’s principle is all about Creativity (Kuumba) : To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

Creativity is the sacred expression of Ra in motion. It’s our ability to transcend ‘traditional’ ideas, expectations and patterns to create original, progressive and imaginative ways to externalise our Higher Self.

Affirmation: Today, I will share my melanin magic with the world, and shine fearlessly in my greatness.
