Hey y'all is Jada welcome back to another weekly word. Y'all, I'm looking at these cards and
just what the messages that are coming to me are just something else y'all. So let me just get into it I don't have a fancy introduction or anything like that the card that we have on the table is strength reversed. And for our weekly word, the strength reverse the first word that came to me was the first words were you know, honing our inner strength and then the next word that came to me was rage and the holiness of our rage and then I started to receive this download of the insidiousness of the systems of oppression that we are forced to live in and the way in which we have been silenced and tamed over time and as I look at this beautiful lion on this card
with this angelic being dressed in white shutting their mouth I think of how this lion maybe trusting this human
that this lion may have been told no you don't have to roar or maybe even No, you shouldn't roar that's not very kind are polite. That's not very civilized view. Oh, you're in pain. You shouldn't cry. Big Girls Don't Cry, boys don't cry.
You and so that's the question has come to my mind is what has been silencing you and your rage? What has been silencing you and your morning?
you beautiful, divine human being? What has tried to tame you? What has tried to convince you that your wildness is vanity? That your wildness is uncivilized that your wildness or your sensuality is carnal, sinful? Ugly, that your voice is too loud that your opinions are unwanted who has tried to silence you?
Do you not know that your wildness is your strength that that this is the power of your being? The voice that they try to silence the wildness that they want to attain that is the source of your strength.
When they want you to fall in line they try to silence you. But then how do they make this happen? They keep us tired, y'all. They keep us tired by working. They keep us tired by forcing us to go to work every day. Because if we don't, we won't make money. If we don't make money we won't eat. We won't live. They shackle us to capitalism. And they know that if we're too tired, we can't fight back. We won't have enough strength to roar. When our safety is threatened, we may not even know that there's danger to be threatened by. They want us to be lulled to sleep to believe anything they tell us. They want us to blindly follow the CDC they want us to believe that we're not living in the middle of two raging pandemics.
They want us to believe that there is no humanity. There's no beauty in the trans community, in our trans babies.
They want us to be lulled to sleep. So they keep us tired. They keep us working. They keep us busy. So that we can't connect with our bodies, we can't we don't know how to regulate anymore. They mess with the time Grace calendar. They decide when we have to spring forward and when we fall back.
And it's by design.
Now ain't that about something. The energy for us to embrace this week is the six of pentacles in reverse. This is already talking about the power dynamics. We already see the hierarchy. There's very strongly stated in this car. The person who's clad with fancy clothes giving out giving handouts to to folks who are in need. In his reversal, we are asked to really pay attention to the power dynamics that be really pay attention to what's really going on, really focus on what's not being said. Pay attention to our government officials and what's really going on. I don't know if you'd like me, maybe you'd like to stay out of the news because the news is just very depressing, and heavy. But sometimes, we need to stay informed. There are a lot of things going on. And I believe that it's important for us to know what's happening in our world so that we can combat it. So that we know how to pray so that we know how to organize. And so with the six of pentacles as energy to embrace this week, how can we get our stuff back?
This week, how can we focus on The inequality that exists in our in the systems today? And how can we extend our hand to someone within our community who needs help? Who needs us?
How can we actually share? And share and give to one another? This week?
How can we carry each other? Now the car to answer this question is the four of cups in reverse. I love this one. Because the four of cups in reverse to me is speaking about discontent, I don't want this anymore. I know that I can use my intuition. knowing who I am, now that I'm waking up, that's what happens in the strength car. At least the way that I'm seeing it today. That if we don't allow whiteness, capitalism, patriarchy. If we don't allow white supremacy, we don't allow anti blackness if we don't allow these systems of oppression, to silence us to tame us to lull us asleep, if we awaken to ourselves. If we join arms with one another, as friends, as community as Comrades, we will not be content and what they're serving us. We will realize that the lot that sits before us is not enough. We will look at the systems and the government officials and the end the way that things exist today and say, This is not doing it anymore. And many of us are already awakened to this many of us already know. Some wondering what is it in our own individual lives that have caused us to fall asleep? And how can we awaken the inner rage? How can that inner rage radicalizes to cause us to show up for one another this week? And yes, it's great to be a shoulder for someone to cry on is great to offer support, emotional support, spiritual support. We need that. And how can we show up materially? We're talking about pentacles, the six of pentacles How do we show up? How can we give our money to a cause? Can we get to someone's mutual aid fund or GoFundMe this week? Sharing is good. Giving is great too. $1 from your account could drastically change someone's life $5 could change someone's life if we all do it. If we all do it together
I believe that when we as we continue to awaken because I think that we slowly come back to our wildness and realize that this whole time there have been agents of capitalism and whiteness that have been trying to control everything. And as we awaken ourselves as we awaken our neighbors as we come back to our bodies we recognize that the wild ms never went away, even if it was silenced. We know We have a roar even if we have to clear our throats a little bit even if we have to wet our tongues a little bit we know how to roar yeah remember that scene in Lion King? When when Simba is practicing his roar and it sounds like a little
sometimes you just gotta practice because the roar maybe immature now but as you grow as time goes by as you hang out with other lions you know exactly how to roar. And it will be mighty and it will reverberate and it may even surprise you the sounds that come out of you the voice that makes it different difference when you speak the whale that comes out as you mourn
there's a reason why our voices have been silenced. There's a reason why they want us to be detained because we will knock this whole thing down when we join in together Yes, we will. Yes, we will.
I know that's a little different today. Different mood, kind of mellow. But um important nonetheless. So I always want to close with either Biblio Mansi, or prayer. And today I have a prayer card. And it is the card of intuition. says God finds a way change me divine beloved, into one who can offer all major decisions to you. Let me trust you're always guiding me in the right directions. We are always remember that if something is meant to be out of no way God finds away. When the reason why I think that's important is because it is our intuition. That is being silenced of many things, our intuition, our inner knowing our inner understanding that has been silenced. Or they've tried to silence it. They've tried to tame that or cause us not to trust ourselves anymore. But spirit is saying that as we tune back in to one another, and ourselves, our intuition will be heightened or we can trust ourselves again. And in trusting ourselves we will learn that we cannot trust anything or anyone that will cause us to turn on our fellow man fellow person
we will not forsake each other for we need one another. And so this week, I hope that in the midst of your life, maybe you find or locate your inner rage that causes you to roar because of the injustice is in the world and that you will find just a small way because something doesn't your contribution doesn't need to be large to be impactful, but a small way that you can contribute to building up someone in your community this week. And with that I hope you all have the most wonderful week and one thing about it I am really looking forward to hearing just how mighty your Roar is have a good week
