Your wanting to rush through healing is a byproduct of colonial capitalist patriarchy.
Oh hi there colonial mentality.
I often remind the courageous, beautiful souls I guide that healing is sacred & we must honor our journey. This makes sense on an intellectual level but then that sense of urgency creeps back up. & I want to educate you that this is another way that the colonial capitalist patriarchy shows up in our lives.
Interesting isn’t it? That sense of urgency, that need of wanting your spiritual decolonial healing journey to be “perfect” , it’s all a byproduct of the colonial capitalist patriarchy.
I want to remind you my loves, to have compassion for where you are in your journey. You don’t have to feel like your healing has to be “productive.” Bc this then becomes a block to the sacred process. Honor where you are dear one.
This is why I no longer work as a psychologist, it just didn’t resonate with me anymore , it felt too forced, it put healing in a colonial box. I believe in therapy & in therapists, my close friends are some of them & I respect them & their work, beautiful healing happens in their work with folx. But for ME, it just didn’t align & for some of you it won’t either & that’s ok, healing comes in many forms.
I also don’t resonate with being a coach anymore. I cringe now when I hear that word & again I have friends that are coaches & do great work with folk & facilitate healing. But for me, it feels forced. Like it’s a rush to do something quickly & meet all these goals. That’s colonial.
I’m saying this not to judge or shame because we’re all different & we have different needs & have different ways to heal & none are better than others. I’m saying this in love & for us to allow folx to heal on their terms, to bring back the sacred, our Indigenous ways, to the healing process.
Allow your healing to unfold, it should feel like flow not force. It should feel like a journey not a race. Settle into your sacred spirit dear one.
