The colonial capitalist patriarchy wants you depleted so that its easier to take away your power.
My love, I want to remind you that you need to protect your energy, your power. Why?
Because the colonizer will do everything possible to keep you away from it.
Keeping you busy, overwhelmed, and depleted is part of their strategy.
Can you see through this?
It’s easier to take away your power beloved when you’re exhausted. You’re less likely to put up a fight, You’re less likely to SEE, you’re more likely to give in.
Rest, slowing down, self care are all ways you can resist & protect and DISCERN their colonial games.
Rest, slowing down, self care are all ways you can set up energetic boundaries so that they do not siphon your power. So that you can be a clear channel.
Do you see this love?
Does this give you the permission you need?
Rest needs to be part of our strategy too.
Rest is protection, rest is resistance, rest is shielding.
Rest allows you to stay in your power.
And us all being in our power is how we get to collective healing and liberation.
They taught you that you don’t have power and they made you afraid of it. All of that is intentional love.
Owning our power and protecting it and sharing it are how we get free.
What comes up for you as you read this love?
Depleted no more, we are worthy of dignity. We rest for ourselves and for our ancestors who weren’t allowed. We rest because it strengthens our power. This was one of the messages that came through our TDHC call. Here’s to hoping you receive it too.
Loving you 💖
