Recovery Step 1 Reflections.

It’s one thing to know that we live under the system of racism, and another to consciously feel it’s devastating impact on our lives.

White fear of genetic annihilation has made us prisoners of war inside our black skin. The longer we swallow our oppression, the more unmanageable our lives have become.

When we affirm the power to change our lives through the steps, we challenge the core parts of ourselves still bleeding from internalised self hate.

In Step 1, we admit that we are powerless over those who practice white supremacy. We surrender to the truth and let go of our compulsive need to escape the vulnerability of our blackness.

As we use the tools and peel back the layers of confusion, we experience a new hope and begin to find the courage to show up in our regal divinity.

In this moment, I will honor that I am alive. I can find the way home to my blacknificance, by asking for help from those who have walked the path before me.

Affirmation: I choose to live in the light. I am worthy of healing.

 

Till next time,

With Blackalicious love.
