Decolonizing without healing, liberation, and imagining becomes destructive.

Beloveds, let me take it to a spiritual & energetic level...

The energy of decolonizing is destructive. It is meant to heal and reclaim, yes. But, the genesis of decolonizing was as a reaction to the colonizer & colonization. Thus, us still playing the colonizer’s game. Did you catch that?

The energy is destructive. And rightfully so, we want to dismantle colonialism. But, if we don’t balance this journey with liberation, with healing, with imagining and visualizing and creating the New Earth. Well then, fk, what is it all for?

Our ancestors didn’t bring us all this way for us just to be reactive, & fight, & stay in the pain. They want us to LIVE.

& the truth is we’ve forgotten & we’ve lost sight of that. & we’re so much in the pain that we don’t see anything else. Folx end up acting out & causing pain to others. We don’t see a way out. & this is going EXACTLY the way the colonizer intended! It’s all going according to his plan.

As Steve Biko shared, “The most potent weapon of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed.

&, you know what, I don’t consent. Yes, we do the collective shadow work of decolonizing AND we DREAM & we BIRTH. Because the truth is this work is HEAVY, and DIFFICULT, & PAINFUL. And we’re repeating colonial patterns if we just live & stay in the pain & the fight of decolonizing.

That is not going to get us to the New Earth, that is not going to get us to the other side. & I appreciate the activists that are in the fight but if you’re just in the pain & not in the imagining, & the joy, the wellness, the healing, the rest, you’re missing the whole point. You’ve been duped by the colonizer & only playing the game half, not whole. See @thenapministry for more.

And this message dear ones is to remind you that you deserve to be whole, well, & free. That we were born warriors yes, but that is not the whole of our purpose and it is not sustainable.

As Angela Davis shares “Anyone who’s interested in making change in the world also has to learn to take care of herself, himself, theirselves.”

I have finally accepted this & I hope you do too love💖.

What can you do differently to make space for imagining the New World?


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.
