finding GRACE for ourselves.
coming back to our humanity 🌍
In my newest Afro-Indigenous dance single called “I AM HUMAN”, I am inviting us to remember our humanity and dance into loving our Black bodies just a little more. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, or YouTube.
As I was producing this song, I wanted to find a playful way to navigate the overwhelming amount of shame that made feel so worthless.
Affirming your humanity using the words “I AM HUMAN” as I do in the song might be one of the most radical things you add to your healing toolkit.
As we move through the world and deal with our silent struggles, it’s natural to beat ourselves up internally with almost everything we do.
Our inner critic or “inner colonizer” is running wild all the time finding the slightest “imperfection” to grab on to and amplify x10.
I say it’s natural when it’s really not because it makes sense that most people are navigating self-hatred.
As a society we put all the value on what we produce rather than our being, which makes it impossible to rest.
To break out of this colonial consciousness, I invite in the Ancestors.
For a moment, take a deep breath and see if you can put yourself in the shoes of your Ancestors thousands of years ago.
They looked to nature to find meaning and purpose in the world rather than what we see on social media, what car we drive, and how big is our home.
This Ancestral consciousness is deeply buried in the cells of all of our bodies.
It takes healing, grieving, and resting to remember.
As the world moves more into the mind and into a survival trauma response, those on the healing path (the “chosen ones”) are being invited back into our hearts to speak our truth.
This is nature’s re-balancing act.
But this process of healing is a very lonely one.
As you dive deeper into your heart, you will begin to become aware that something is really wrong with the world and begin to ask why aren’t more people doing something about it.
You’ll find yourself at times thinking you’re crazy.
You’ll begin to see how imperative it is that we say enough is enough.
But it begins with you in your own daily life.
Saying NO! to that person at work or in your home who constantly is shaming you for your being.
And then celebrating yourself with some movement and dance.
Please use this song to give yourself more permission to not have it all figured out.
To find some way to be kind to yourself because your heart matters.
I need your heart.
We need your heart.
The next 7 generations needs your heart.
