i have experienced many rebirths throughout my journey.

each birth
left me feeling brand-new.

what i now know is
that “new” feeling
is simply me
being more
of who i’ve always been.

the newness.
the rebirth.
is moreso
a remembering…

remembering
the me i had forgotten.

remembering that
some of the traits
i had picked up
along the way to “make it”
are no longer required.
or never were.

remembering that
no matter where i go,
or how many times i am reborn,
i will always find myself.

and because i have made
a home within myself,
i don’t ever have to fear
losing my way.

this past week i was invited *home* to greensboro, nc by the provost of north carolina agricultural and technical state university to facilitate a meditation session and discuss ways to practice mindfulness in the workplace at the annual dean’s retreat. what an honor it was to bring indigenous practices into the academia space and to assist others in re-memebering our ancient ways and be well received. many thanks and blessings to provost dr. tonya smith-jackson for her incredible leadership!

wherever i go, there i am.
a teacher.
a wellness guide.
a priestess.
supporting others in
being whole.
being love.
being free.

grateful. 🙏🏾

we are human + spirit.

when we came earthside
we were granted
the opportunity
of integrating
these parts of ourselves.

what a gift.
to experience
such a sacred union.
to be able to engage
in such a sacred dance.

my love, you don’t get brownie points for neglecting your human to pursue spiritual matters or “godly” things.

grace is knowing
that perfection isn’t required
of our human.

wisdom is knowing
we can do more
and go further
when we take care
of this human vessel.
mind. body. heart.

sustainability is key.

the greatest ebo (sacrifice)
often occurs
when we are tending to
our physical, emotional
and mental health.

this, too, is spiritual work.
this, too, is how
we honor
and commune
with god,
our ancestors,
our guides,
the orisha, etc.

my prayer for you
is that your life
be filled with
sweetness
and joy
and laughter
and fun
and pleasure
and ease
and that
you may come to know
an even greater
depth of love
each time
you tend to yourself.

you are worthy
of such divine love
and care.

praise be to the god
that lives
in you and me,
as you and me.

as above, so below.

may your inner fire remind you that you are the light of heaven. light doesn’t have to fit in because all things already fit into the light. the sun does not apologize for its brightness and neither should you. no more hiding or remaining in spaces that try to shade you. do whatever it takes to cultivate and protect your light + shine brightly, my love.

“we use breathing with yemoja to tap into who we are as nurturers and protectors. her movements challenge us to flow through our limitations, dancing with our boundaries feeling the full extent of our reach. yemoja is about creation, and to create, we must expand and stretch to our limits of discomfort for results and growth.” - oludaré bernard of Kiire Wellness

There’s no defined way to process grief. The path to healing is immersed in the unknown. Death, grief and trauma are not something we discuss regularly until a loss or significant change happens to us. We’re rarely prepared for the journey that proceeds. And that is ok. Be gentle with yourself. Allow yourself to feel every possible emotion that surfaces. Allow yourself extra time to rest and process. There is no right or wrong way to grieve and move through all the emotions. Embrace your process as you re-discover yourself continuously.

We had written an article a bit ago on grief, and information provided by therapists on coping with death. If you feel inspired to dive deeper you can keep reading within our blog. ❤️
