And, together, we are building a community where everyone feels a sense of belonging, connection, meaning and purpose. This is a safe space where all are welcome.

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.
