Whenever I watch a TV show about witches I' find myself torn. I love seeing women operating in their power, but the word association makes me cringe. The word witch feels like the N word at times: a term intended as an insult., It was originally meant to oppress the same people who use the term to identify themselves today: the Spiritually Gifted. If you research history, Indigenous people of every nation on Earth have deep spiritual roots. These ancestors were in touch with nature and the Universe in a way that predates and possibly inspired modern religion. Those who sought to exploit the land and the people called indigenous practices witchcraft. Isn't it the victor of the war who decides history? And what measure was savage and civilized based on?. We've been stuck in that lie ever since.
On another note, a pleasant surprise is when I watch a movie that's not intended to be magical at all. The character "Priest" in the remake of Super Fly, and "Harriet Tubman's" character in the new biopic both used their intuition to navigate through some very dangerous situations. This is how natural magic. really works.
Black Girl Magic" "is a new movement that I love just for the celebration of oppressed women learning to embrace their natural beauty. One thing ALL WOMEN have in common is the natural gift of knowing they call womens/ mothers intuition. Diversity is one of lifes treasures. Our gifts are expressed in infinite ways. The beauty of Spirituality is that it welcomes all cultures, races, and lifestyles. Spirituality is not limited by religion. It is expanded by it. So all people can enjoy the mystical benefits of life and finally reach a level of mastery attained only by the masters of each religion.
All the cool movies with powerful female leads were mostly about witches in the 90's. The stars were always white and I loved them all! Didn't we all love the Charmed sisters, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and my all time favorite The Craft who had a kick-ass black girl Rachel True in a main role. Today we see more diversity and I look forward to more stories of powerful magical women of all cultures. The prayer warriors, medicine women, shamans, fortune tellers and the like all have a story to be told. We are magic without props or Satan worship. The gentrification of spirituality came to divert us from our sacred paths. Through trauma programming like project monarch and mind control programs like MK Ultra, we learned to fear our ancestral connection. Paralyzed between fear of the unknown and believing that magic is only fantastical over the top tricks that you see in minstrel shows. There is magic in getting a good parking spot, or being ushered to the front of the line to make a flight you were sure to miss. These small wins lead to a life of big magic! I offer workshops on how to strengthen intuition and 1 on 1 coaching sessions that help you tap into your higher self? Wellness is a lifestyle personal to each individual. There's no one right way. Finding a good spiritual practitioner is always a great start to empower your higher self. A good one will guide you toward your own power. Interested?

Everything in nature is magical. It is the subtle sides of ourselves, our nature, that we often take for granted. Whether you admit it or not, deep in your heart you know that you have a gift. It’s natural. You’re probably doubtful especially with television shows constantly exaggerating the gifts with theatrics. We have traded knowledge of Self for thoughtless entertainment. You will never find the truth advertised in popular culture. You will only find clues
The gift is real. Most people know at least one person who has natural magic. It’s the praying Grandma you always call when someone’s in trouble. It’s the lady in the church who lays hands on the sick. It’s in the flavor of a simple meal prepared by new hands, although you had it 1,000 times before, this time it tastes so good it feeds your soul. It’s the little kid on the block with the imaginary friend, or that time you had deja vu.
If you don’t know someone like this then, that someone is probably you. Most people live their whole lives without experiencing the awesome power that they possess.
My mission is to lead you to the truths hidden in plain sight. There are numerous books accessible to all, but only a certain type will take interest. The words are written in your DNA. You seek knowledge only to remember what your higher self already knows. You’re here, reading this blog at this exact moment because you are ready to be set free. True freedom is found within. It's important to stay connected to others who are operating in their gifts. My workshop a great place to start.
