Need a Safe Black Healing Space?

Hey Fam,

After publishing the recent podcast about loosing my brother to addiction, I received some powerful responses about how it moved and motivated you to get sober. There was also talk of struggles with experiencing racism in the recovery rooms.

With December and the holidays upon us, it’s also a very triggering time for those of us raised in abusive, addictive families. This means that our need for support and a sense of belonging is even more important.

The kickback around having safe black spaces has always had its challenges because white supremacy will often shame us into believing we’re practicing ‘reverse racism’.

We need a safe space to address our cultural needs without the gaze of white fragility. No one ever questions men or women only groups that want to explore gender, so this is of course another racist hurdle we have to deal with.

Many of us are so worn down by the pressure to conform, that we end up in inappropriate kumbayah spaces where our needs are ignored, and our historical wounds continue to bleed.

I promised my brother that I would stay committed to my own recovery and serve you by sharing ways to emancipate yourself through personal empowerment and racial sobriety beyond the 12 steps. You deserve the right to enjoy this planet without fear.

That said, if I created a space online for us to have some honest, solution focused conversations about internalised racism, recovery and empowerment would that be of interest to you?

If yes, sign up below on the wait list to register your interest.

YOG26:10 Ways to Manage Black Pain

Greetings Family,

The reason why so many of us struggle under the system of white supremacy, is because we don’t understand our pain or what to do with it. When we’re triggered by all the racist aggression, we deny, avoid and stuff down the emotions in order to cope with the abuse and feelings of powerlessness. The unheard pain is internalised, and it’s energy leaks out in how we care for ourselves and those we love.

A crucial part of our healing requires us to honor our black pain. It’s essential to find healthy, sober ways to listen to what the pain is trying to tell us, and transform it into behaviours which restore our sense of balance. Our suffering can teach us where we need to set boundaries around the  people, places or things which undermining our serenity. In this session, I share 10 tools to manage your black pain.

Listen up below.

 

Till next time,

With Blackalicous Love,

June

YOG23: Addiction, Pain and Recovery Solutions.

Greetings Fam,

Yesterday, was the anniversary of my brothers death.

After many years of using drugs and alcohol, his body gave up on 6 November 2012.

He was 46 years old.

In today’s podcast, I share how the impact of his death keeps me committed to SLAYING in recovery and serving my community.

How do you define addiction? Do you think it’s all about drink and drugs?

In this episode, I also teach how black pain under the system of racism, manifests as different types of addictive and compulsive behavior.

Black self respect means being truthful about your pain.

Black self love is about asking for help.

If you’re struggling with addiction and want to learn more about 12 step recovery,

Be open. Be willing. Be the change.

Finding The Courage To Change

Greetings Family,

Imagine 25 years from now……

Do you want the next generation to still be struggling with self hate and white supremacy?
Will you be the armchair activist only expressing keyboard outrage?
I know you don’t want that.

You want to live in a world which honors your culture, accepts you for who you are, and rewards your God given gifts. Challenging this system is scary, but you do have the power to destroy it.
If you really want to manifest a legacy of empowerment, your future needs you to find the courage to start taking action today.

Take one moment at time, to face your truth and own how you enable white supremacy.

There was a time when I was terrified of opening up because of my black shame.

The pain and fear of passing old trauma onto my daughter became the catalyst for building a legacy of hope and freedom for her and my community.

I certainly didn’t know what I was doing, but my surrender and searching for answers told the Universe that I was ready to change my life.

Your courage will seed, the moment you become open to your truth.

The late Dr Maya Angelou said,
“One isn’t born with courage. One develops it. And you develop it by doing small, courageous things.’

Just for today,

I will remember that often the things that cause me the most pain, can turn out to be my greatest triumphs.

Every baby step of courage is also a revolutionary act of self love- June Allen

Your affirmation today is.
Courage is my classroom for lessons of self love and black self respect.

Till next time, take care of you, so we can take care of each other.

With Blackalicious Love
