Acknowledgement

It’s mother’s day here today, love to all mothers especially sole parents and loves that have lost children. Thinking of you lovely ones 🌹 have a fantastic day.

The rest is for those that don’t have a relationship with their mother and their family.I want to acknowledge the loves that a day like mother’s day presses on, the loss of family and never really fully understanding what it feels like to belong to a family because you were scapegoated, and you either had no choice to leave or was pushed out. This is for you.

I want to acknowledge all the navigating, introspection, healing, the exhaustion and the pain and consistently rebuilding the foundation of what self is without abuse. Your commitment to your love of self not just for you, but if you have children you chose better for them too. I acknowledge your loss and I also acknowledge your resilience.

People do not understand what it’s like to heal such deep wounding from relearning what family is. Who you are without the abuse and the space to breathe and know who you are within and underneath the pain. To learn what community looks like for those that have no idea what it feels like to be accepted, all of you not just what you can do for others when you’re caught in the people pleasing trauma response out fear of being abandoned again. I want to acknowledge the loves that learned the destructive side of mother in her wounding and had an intimate relationship with her from a young age and learning to accept the power within this pain.The time you’ve taken to heal you.

Let’s also never forget our Mother the earth. Our all and everything. Please love and spend time with her. Love yourself by loving her. She desperately needs our presence and connection.

Community and Earth

Community is one aspect that takes centre point 2021. I will go more into it when I upload the reading on my FB page on the 30th.
Below are a few self reflective questions, and we begin with looking at the relationship you have with the earth and the land you live on. I’ve seen people speak about having a relationship with the earth but not knowing anything about the land they live on and it’s history and if they do, the importance of respecting it and there’s a whole heap to talk about here too.

Your relationship with your ancestors gives you a strong foundation to build on and the earth you are made of. How well do you know where you come from? What do you know? What can you do to strengthen your relationship to self, your ancestors, to the land/s your from? Do you have connection to the ethnic communities you’re made from?

 optimal user experience.

What’s your relationship to family? This is not to say if you don’t have one it hinders your growth as a person. That shit needs to stop. There are other ways of establishing roots besides staying in contact with toxic family members. Not all ancestors and future ancestors are going to like you or get along with, facts but
there is a way of honouring family and your roots without being made to feel guilty because of those that are too wounded to have healthy relationships with. People have to understand that not tolerating toxic and abusive behaviour from family members is also liberating ancestral threads. Sometimes the most peaceful and respectful thing to do is walk away.

Looking at the relationship you have with self but also with others. What needs your attention to transform to come into relationships with others that hold depth and meaning?
What are your boundaries like? Do you offer the same loyalty,safety and presence others give and vice versa?

And, have you begun decolonising? Understand upholding christian holidays and why.te supremacy (is also ws) isn’t liberating our earth, ancestors or self. Whyte colonisation and structures have much pain associated with our ancestors which we feel deeply of we’re paying attention.

This is some examples of the depth of looking at grounding to build solid community and support for yourself. It really is getting to know you so fucking well that when you step into community you feel safe and not bypassing unhealthy patterns out of need that deep down you feel resentful for. It’s getting crystal in these areas & walking it.

I remember

I yearn to take up space in a wilderness that lives inside me, the lands I’m made of. When water wasn’t monetised and placed in a poison called plastic. And nature wasn’t hurting the way she is now, and live the feral that I know I am. The wild that screams for expression and not live under a code of oppression, of falseness and superficial happiness.
Hearing the internalised screams of grief and rage suppressed under materialism and capitalism with every living being you connect with just wanting to breathe and burn away the sickness too many believe in.
Feeling the sadness from the lack of connection and interconnectedness our ancestors are screaming to return to. To remember the respect and integrity we had for all life and the soil we honoured, and the celebration through ceremonies of life and death.
I remember, and we fight on.

Spider Woman with Claws

You’re like a spider woman with claws trying to rip open shit with a nastiness and distaste that drips fierceness from your tongue.

Tracking for threads of truth within her rage from a blinding pain that is all consuming when she’s misunderstood and her grandmothers that live inside her are not seen.
Polishing her finds with the saliva of her ancestors, delicately placing each piece of wisdom on the shelf to lead her back to who she is. Collecting magic with her hands from deep within the earth, her elbows begin to grow roots and she becomes the wildness that she remembers.

Protector from violence she becomes, as she soaks up the volcanic liquid that meets the lava inside of her and spills from her mouth and between her legs and that’s when the world wills her death when she becomes more than can ever be understood.

A power that fills her from the mud she likes to smear over her body. A reminder that her ancestors live inside of her as she reaches for their bones deep within the earth.
And with everything she knows, they still try and silence her rage from being heard, even from women that say they understand but haven’t ventured deep enough to know it in their bones.

As her lava spills and hardens to create new surface, she collects all the fuckers that try to destroy her and suffocates them with her fire.
Give no fucks, be the bitch that only the earth understands because of the love you hold and have for Her.
She understands why death is important and why woven skins that violate her is fucking necessary.

The War that’s Coming

It’s a stirring that never goes away. A chaos that’s deep in the marrow. A burn that’s lived through the rage of all the women before you. A scream that’s eternally lived from centuries of pain from the tribes I am from.

No matter how you expect a woman should be, she will never be what you want her to be no matter how hard you try to make her fear her fire. It’s a furnace of heat that will melt your fucking insides with the sting of her words and the trickery of her niceness.

Understand, if you take the light out of her eyes you’re creating something you don’t want to fuck with no matter how meek and complying you think she is. A darkness is stirring that will swallow you both whole, but only one will make it out alive.

I’ve had my bones broken in many places and set them back together with the wisdom from my grandmothers loved back with the chaos I was born and taught to fear.
You can’t destroy a woman that is made of death that enjoys inflicting pain and sewing lips with whispered words of hate that she is made of. The misconception that you’re going to be some fucking nun when you rewild and come back to the woman you are is a fucking lie. You live the rawness of nature and the ferocity of your ancestors honour. Think before you try to smack a bitch down because she will rise with her people behind her.
When the fuck are cunts going to learn that we don’t break, we burn.
I ain’t going to pretty it up for the war thats comin.

Change

Choice and change. Saying so because of the panic and unrest so many get caught in fearing the chaos of change and right now we’re surfing one of those deep pockets of transformation. Or change in general even if it goes smoothly.
I understand the panic and fear, it goes with old wounds associated with trauma and change and navigating unknown territory.
I understand anxiety gets hooked on feeding these beliefs which only amplifies the fear you’re already feeling so kind reminders to ground a fuck load through it and take many breaks where you can to do so.

In my ancestral practice, we look at anxiety as an opportunity to strengthen how to ground and stand in power, to strengthen inner sight and to see and be connected to knowing while we’re in it. It’s one of the most important practices to navigate through, taking you deeper each time to understand and to know, strengthening with clarity your relationship to fear, to your body, earth and ancestors. This is just another practice to ground energy and to pull up more power and it’s continual through journeying through each layer of ancestral trauma when it’s triggered.

Give yourself space to process the internal changes to embody the knowing of it.

Woman: Darkness & Transformation

The experience of guilt when transforming away from those you have felt connected to, whether family, friends or partners, or all of the above is a wound and trigger we revisit over and over again each time we grow and we feel the pain of letting go, of death.

So let me speak about shame, toxic behaviours, care taker role, guilt, rage and depression/oppression.

All the above is saturated with shame, grief, rage, PSTD, anxiety, fear and the fear is fearing self rejection and the isolation that women we’ve experienced one too many times.. when we choose or have chosen to step into our power and value ourselves. We don’t know how long we’ll spiral down into the depths of our darkness each time we break open again.

We’ve been shamed, ridiculed, put down, abused and abandoned if we have chosen ourselves in the past. For some women growing up, we have experienced this pain again and again, then in adulthood and it has been a reoccurring pattern to the point of really fearing stepping into and reclaiming her power until she decides no more. That is not to say you won’t experience it again each time you choose you, it means you choose you and feel the emotions with presence so you can grow from them.

Now, this grief, even the shame and fear of reclamation of our power, there are gifts within our power within each layer emotion and wound.
See the fear and emotion you need to navigate through as the potency of your power. Each layer needs to be worked through, felt, and understood to reclaim wisdom and knowing for you to stand grounded and solid in your fire. For your power to be earthed.

You know darkness, which is the feminine, why our matriarchal lines are more dominantly felt because our experience is primordial. We know what it is to be woman. We hear the whispers of knowing through our bodies, our wombs, our breasts. We know how our bodies relate, speak and know the earth. We don’t feel the disconnection or separation with Her because we know.
Why we feel our Mother so deeply…and the darker and oppressive your experiences in life has been my loves, it is the potency and grounding your power needs for you to be able to carry and walk it.
You were never broken, we don’t break, we die, we weave and rebirth over and over again just like our Mother.

Ancestral healing: let’s talk about shame

How long have you been hiding in shame not knowing it?
The dense feeling of I can’t be too much, what does it matter if I stand out or not? It’s safer here in the dark not saying too much, as you laugh nervously to hide the rage you feel from yet again another fucking comment to silence your voice. Common as fuck for women. We have to deal with this shit show a lot and whether you’re a woman walking her power or not, it doesn’t matter. The influential and ingrained toxicity of patriarchy will make sure your voice is small, and fuck off to that.

Let’s look at the ‘not be taken seriously’ and the expectation to not to take up space women. And that becomes a fearful belief for so many women incase oppressing toxic cunts have some bullshit to say so you can slip quietly back into the box of not too much which is exactly what they want you to do, and that can get fucked too.

There’s not a person that hasn’t experienced shame, the healthy kind but then there are loves that have experienced toxic shame, and we know this don’t we women, but also please spare a thought for BIPOC, trans and queer women. The shame and trauma is layered and can become heavy and dense and we learn how to exist in the shadows, we adjust to not having a voice and not being seen hoping no one will notice so they don’t poke at the pain of belittlement again because we know the spiral of grief attached to this.
This is why women we need to take up as much space as we can to slowly break the shame cycle.

Deep deep ancestral wounds my loves, shame has two distinct components of push pull of reacting on the anxiety and adrenalin that comes from trauma of it and it can be a reactive bitch as panic and anxiety is. You can’t sit still and you don’t wanna sit still and there’s a good chance you may either self destruct from overreacting or sink too far in grief to hide again if you’re not paying attention and healing with presence when the wound is triggered.

It is also layered with rage and contraction, pulling our self expression so far in we don’t want to be seen or heard, and self doubt festers as does the confusion.
I take my clients into working with the two distinct threads of working with shame that feeds the panic when we experience toxic shame. Toxic shame belittles a person to a point they feel so bad about who they are that in extreme cases it feels like it’s breaking them too fearful to be seen, to speak how they feel out of fear they will be put down again. Overtime, people adjust walking to this heaviness making excuses why they can’t or shouldn’t speak up or be seen no matter what the circumstance. I’m going to take you deeper to understand shame a little more whether on here or my facebook page Snake & Wild Roots
or here. Shame feeds in the hidden, and it’s a deep ancestral wound for all of us and for some us deeper than most. It’s a big layer of where freedom lives and necessary for our happiness, peace and well being.

Descent into the lower worlds

Her eyes are black, full of wisdom and spirit and endless opportunity to sink further and further with each question you’re intrigued to ask. Her hair is full of questions from those that got lost in her magnetism losing themselves in their own delusion of her, sacrificing their own peace for a slice of life that will never be their own. Seeing their future in her presence as the whispers of their own insecurities weaves the next thread of inner adventure coloured with distraction and anxious promises to what may never be.

Losing consciousness, her mouth moves slowly to sound out each word like you can’t hear. Spellbound, you follow her into the web she touches lightly and you feel it moving through parts of your body.
She smiles and touches one of the threads while giving you the look you know when life changes again.
‘Move like the serpent,’ as you feel your eyes heavy drawing you into shamanic worlds. Warm earth and bones with ancient markings tells you it’s time to dream only to wake in nothing but dark. Smoking herbs and the sound of rattle taking you further into the land between now and forever.

‘Look to the ocean when it’s dark, the answers are waiting for you there’ is what is etched on the cave wall and I read it on my stomach.

Trickery & Pain

The slippery choices that can be offered standing in the crossroads is neither here nor fucking there, because we all know how it can be smeared with fear and pain dressed like a sexy bitch luring you into believe the escapism you’ve created for yourself so you can have that fix and tell your pain you’re worth something if the picture is just fucking so. The stickiness of emotional bullshit, pulling on neediness that is desperately seeking love in all the wrong places that look all fucking shiny and pretty. This shit, is what is coming up for many and it’s saturated in deep grief, pain and anxiety which can be masked with too many things and one too many distractions feeding the unsettledness and the rage which is also very much part of these deep ancestral wounds.

Sticky as fuck I know, but it’s one that can change your entire direction and life if you choose to face it head on, and not just once, keeping your attention and presence around it as you move through life in your isolation box. The pressure of stillness is not one that comes up in conversation much and one that should. Living in a world that is consistently putting the pressure on to keep doing which obviously also creates a fuck load of problems which we witness everyday and it’s thrown in the fuck it bucket and seen as ‘normal’ everyday living. It’s not living it’s surviving with a huge weight on our health. The opposite of that is really looking at our well being when we stop and see the overload of what too many people carry and give very little attention to, yet it is crucial to our health and peace of mind. You can’t not expect to feel a lot and not know why or where it’s coming from if it isn’t part of your practice to keep yourself healthy from the inside out, it’s not something we’re usually taught but that also needs to change. And the anxiety and grief is to be expected and not just because of being triggered with the changes happening right now, it’s deeper and more than that. Much more. Time to turn in.

We all need to do something very different with how we live. If this isn’t obvious as fuck, then we truly are just driving ourselves towards our own destruction lead by narcissistic greedy fools that will never know the difference between their face and their arse.

These deep ancestral pains is wanting our presence and liberation, to change shit from the inside out which is the only real change because all that unresolved emotional energy creates more unconscious bullshit no matter how many times it’s squashed down in the dark, it will only grow and it keeps a person unmotivated for change stuck in shitty patterns, read that again.
