Revolutionaries and Liberators...



Sorry, I have not posted as much lately - it has been pretty busy for me and there are many new doors opening in my life. I feel very grateful to the Spirit World for giving me the opportunity to re-experience love inside of myself and share it with others...

The Ancestors have told me that this new "Turning" - this new cycle that we are entering has its strength in relationships. It is a time for us to really stretch ourselves and begin to practice cooperation and reciprocity now - not later. Live tomorrow as today and today as yesterday. This "Turning" is also about honoring those Ancient Female Spirits and Ancestors that have stood upright, many times "alone" within a silent majority.

All too often the Warrior Mother Spirit is ignored in the fight for liberation of our people. I see countless websites, books, speeches that speak of the greatness of Afrikan men in glorious detail (which is very well deserved...) AND when it comes to the Warrior Mothers there is only a reference to them as "Strong Afrikan Queens" with very little analysis of their lives, their scholarship, their impact on the whole Afrikan community. We need more than honorable mentions...a token few...The Spirits of these Warrior SistahGoddesses stand at the gates with swords in hand ready to infuse us with their spirit of unfailing victory. Will we greet them? Will we bring offerings? Will we converse with them? Seek their advice and guidance? Perhaps, yes...If so, then we must know who they are...

A friend shared this powerful website with me called Suppressed Histories...Below is a video from the author Max Dashu. Check out her website which is also a wealth of information on Rebel Shaman Warrior Women...
