break out of the depression with Nina Simone
If I reflect back on my history with depression what is consistent in those dark seasons is this feeling of being misunderstood.
This is why Nina Simone’s Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood is cracking my heart open right now.
This deep loneliness I have felt in the past and sometimes still do today.
When I was doing inner child work at the height of my depression all I could see was this little boy alone in a living room with no furniture just crouched over in a fetal position with his head down.
I’ve been through so many of these seasons that now I have more of an awareness that something is being ask to be released or die.
In the midst of the inner colonizer saying I’m worthless and I don’t belong, something happens where I snap out of it and remember — ah I’m being asked to stop giving a fuck what people think about me and to trust MY HEART.
Some of us are selected to lead others into feeling free.
This remembering in our bodies that our Ancestors once felt a long long time ago.
Some people might admire the platform but trust me you don’t want this lol.
So if you feel like you’re so misunderstood by the world and you’re thinking you don’t belong here — please let me tell you, you belong.
If anything, it means you are chosen by The Ancestors to love you so unapologetically as I witness Nina Simone did. What a fierce African QUEEN.
You have to find that in yourself though. Breaking out of the depression requires you to save yourself. To do the work, to listen to your inner child and re-teach yourself to PLAY.
It’s hard. It’s long AND it’s worth it.
The feeling of freedom that Nina Simone talks about is so sweet. It’s the nectar of my life.
The chase is what drives me and to keep sacrificing a stable and secure lifestyle for the alternative path.
The spiritual path.
The path where we develop a stronger bond with The Most High.
The Divine Mother’s love is love like no other and I’m addicted 🤣
We’re having another campfire this Sunday and I’m considering leading a Wednesday night pop-up campfire. If at least 3 people comment on a good time for them in EST I will do it! It will be 60 minutes long.
I’m also playing with bringing the drum’s to our great Ancestor’s spiritual wisdom. This is a real early version of a potentially my next single called MISUNDERSTOOD
