National Comadres Newsletter #13 (June 2021)
We must try and begin to give ourselves permission to see, and acknowledge the stories we tell ourselves, or that others have told us and made us believe, about who we are. We must try and begin to weed out all the voices we hear in our minds as well as, the negative self-talk of our inner critic and inner voice that tell us that we’re still not good enough. Who are all those voices that are continuously talking to you? Preventing you from being fully present and stealing your joy and happiness? Instilling so much anxiety, fear, self-doubt, worry, anger, and low self-worth?
By taking steps every day to weed them all out, you will eventually begin to make room in your mind with more clarity, to hear the voices of your ancestors and our creator. Consistently tilling and fertilizing ourselves with good nourishing things that will bring balance, wisdom, and maturity enabling us to live in peace, happiness, and harmony is where we want to go. Committing to the process and seeing it all the way through, through the pain, wanting to give up, feeling hopeless and helpless though difficult, will pass, if we stay committed to the process. Only by going through the fire is gold refined and only by going through the process will we understand the strength, endurance, and tenacity we have inside.
Our healing is a personal lifelong journey that takes a lot of courage, commitment, faith, and trust. Your ancestors have planted many seeds of healing, wisdom, values, and traditions within you. Make time to cultivate them within yourself, as well as for the future and generations to come. May your commitment to your own healing be the medicine that blesses all those around you in, “YOUR GARDEN,” with healing, hope, love, and inspiration.
