Decolonizing Means Unlearning All The Ways…

“Who taught you to hate yourself?” - Malcolm X
"Decolonizing means unlearning all the ways you've been taught to be violent to yourself and others." Dr. Rosales Meza

Our ancestors were violently colonized. We carry this intergenerational colonial trauma in our DNA, in our minds, in our bodies, in our energy field.


Because of this intergenerational colonial trauma, the colonial capitalist patriarchy has convinced us that we are inferior, that we only exist for the ways they can use us , that we only exist to serve others, that our worth lies in our ability to tolerate pain, in our ability to work deny our selves and our truths in service of their agenda. & so we end up experiencing emotional, physical, mental, & spiritual exhaustion. We end up being unhappy with a life that we created because we believed that what they told us would lead to success and happiness, but it was just for their benefit. We have been manipulated, lied to, exploited...colonized.


It is not your fault love, you have done the best you can with what you knew at the time, with inheriting colonial pain.

But now, it is time to unlearn, to heal, not just for ourselves but for our collective healing & liberation.

We were made for this. We were born for this uprising, for the collective awakening. You were born to end the 500+ year cycle of colonial trauma.


It is my deep honor to do this work. It is my life’s greatest mission along with being a mother. I am all in, & now I’m building a collective of decolonial healers who are ready to unlearn the colonial voice, to shed their colonized selves, & to reclaim their power, for our collective healing and liberation.


The Decolonial Healing Collective is a movement, a force. My soul was born for this work & yours was too. Do you feel the calling?


Loving you

Saludos Beloved,

I am Dra. Rocío Rosales Meza, a Xicana/Mexicana muxer, mother, feminist, womanist, muxerista. I am a Seer, a medicine woman, energy worker, writer, psychospiritual/intuitive coach, decolonial healer. I am here because of my ancestors, Creator, guides, the spirits, the elements, the land. I am here because of the love of my mama, my abuelita, my sisters, my teachers, my mentors, my child, my husband, my family.

 

I am also a student, always open to learning and unlearning. I honor my teachers on my path as a medicine woman, Pampa Mesayoq Don Alejandro Apaza of the Q'ero Inca Nation, of the Apaza family lineage, Mesa Carrier and medicine woman Marilu Shinn, and Traditional Japanese Reiki Educator, Marika Clymer. My mentor Dr. Jeanett Castellanos and Dr. Joe White and his freedom train.

 

While I have a Ph.D.  in Counseling Psychology, I have chosen not to pursue licensure as a Psychologist as I am not aligned with the colonial field. It is not the medicine I am meant to carry, my path is that of a medicine woman. I believe in therapy as it is an Indigenous practice afterall, though have intentionally decided to not work in a field that pathologizes folx of color for problems that are deeply rooted in colonial trauma. My work now is to help BIWFOC (Black, Indigenous Women and Femmes of Color) be free from colonial programming rather than having them internalize colonial labels.  

 

My work is at the intersections of decolonizing, spirituality, and wellness. I walk and work in between the earthly and spiritual realms. I often feel my work is “too decolonial for the spiritual world and too spiritual for the decolonial world.” I live at the intersections to bring in the new that is being asked to be born in this space and time.

 

I deeply believe in dismantling the colonial capitalist patriarchy and oppressive systems that make us unwell. I know this is the only way we will birth the New Earth to bring in the times of harmony and balance. I also deeply believe that we must do this liberatory healing work in ourselves as we can only extend the energies we embody out into the world. And so it is crucial that we unlearn how we’ve internalized these harmful systems in our body, our psyche, our energy field, in how we live our life.

I also believe that we must heal the colonial pain. AND we must not be defined by it, or the oppressor wins. And so I deeply know that this work must also be spiritual. We must liberate our spirit for true healing and liberation, to reclaim our intuition, we must reconnect to the divine in us and in all beings.  If we can remember that we are a sacred soul, infinitely powerful, a co-creator with the spirit realms, than we would not allow others to keep us in a colonial, spiritual prison. We would see that we are sovereign, that we are a part of all a part of creation, together weaving sacred life through the gifts we were born to give.

 

The work I am honored to carry is transformational, life changing, liberating. I am so honored to serve as a vessel. I co-create with the sweet, courageous souls that are deeply called to work with me. It is my deep honor to witness them begin to heal themselves, love themselves, and reclaim their sovereignty. This work is not intellectual, it is deeply spiritual. It is beautiful, potent, shadow work and a spiritual remembrance. 

What I bring in my work with folx is my Seeing abilities or psychic medium, claircognizant, clairsentient, clairvoyant, clairaudient, channeling/oracle abilities, as well as my clinical doctoral training, psychospiritual/intuitive coaching, and teaching experience as a tenured professor.  I have 20 years of experience conducting cultural, social, and psychological research, 17 years of experience as a healer, and 16 years of experience teaching courses in anti-oppressive work and helping skills. And, I am a born Seer.

I have a Ph.D., and I am a Seer, yes, and also this work is my life, my lived experience. My work is very intuitive, I make space for the way that it is being asked to be shared through me.  My work now is almost the antithesis of who I was as an academic. I trust in Spirit and I let them show me the way. I am multiskilled and yet, what I feel are my unique gifts are my heart, my deep sense of compassion, my visionary leadership, and my ability to tap into the spiritual realms.

 

If you are here to walk the path of decolonial healing, I deeply believe you were born to do this work to bring in the New Earth. I deeply believe that your ancestors chose you to do this work so that you could heal your lineage and REMEMBER. I deeply believe your ancestors, Great Spirit, and your soul are calling you to step into your higher purpose.

 

It is my deep honor to walk with you and guide you back to you. My work is to help you unlearn colonial programming so that you can liberate your spirit and reclaim your sovereignty and your wellness, through remembering who you were before colonization, reclaiming your intuition, honoring your soul’s call, and living in harmony with all beings, Mother Earth, and the elements.  Welcome home, beloved, may we heal together and get free.
