You are welcome here, sister <3 ⠀ ⠀ It's not too late to join our next Women of Color Healing Circle on Thursday, 9/27 at @wmnspace from 7pm to 9pm. Use the link in my bio to save your spot. Tickets are $25.00. See you then! xoxo, Heather⠀ ⠀ What to expect: There is a powerful individual, collective, and intergenerational impact to living in a world that systematically oppresses women of color. Regular exposure to microaggressions, colonization, loss, as well as direct/indirect violence create embedded layers of trauma in our bodies leading to burn-out, dis-ease, numbness, depression, anxiety, body shame, and cycling through the same relationship patterns over and over again. ⠀ ⠀ However, for many women of color, self-care is perceived as a luxury. Oftentimes, when we step into healing spaces, we feel as if we cannot truly be ourselves or even invisible. Through a guided process, we gain clarity around the limiting patterns created by oppressive forces and core wounding around slavery, racism, misogyny, sexism, etc. in our lives and lovingly transmute them into intentional and actionable change within ourselves, our communities, and the world.⠀ ⠀ In this safe, non-judgmental space you will experience a deeper connection to yourself, an increased sense of resilience, self-love, self-determination, and inspiration to liberate injustice within your own body. Women have the opportunity to share, journal, dance, and listen to the experiences of others. *This space is for cisgender, transgender, and gender non-conforming identified Women of Color.⠀ ⠀ #wmnspace #wochealingcircle #healingispossible #selfhealing #healingtogether #womenscircle #womenscircles #womenofcolor #transformation #decolonizeyourmind #decolonizeyoursexuality #internalizedoppression #heatherrebeccawilson #racializedstress #racializedtrauma #intergenerationaltrauma #ancestraltrauma #sexualshame #sexualtrauma #decolonize #jadeegg #jadeeggs #jadeeggpractice #jadeeggcoach
This is sickening, I looked into this case and found out that #SamuelWoodward actually struggled with his own sexuality, which probably makes this even worse. Like imagine hating yourself so much that you go out your way to harm someone for being open about the thing you're so deeply insecure about. But I can’t even pretend like our society doesn’t play a part in this type of self internalized hate, a lot of us grew up in a time where anything LGBT related was completely deemed as being wrong & shameful and was outcasted from society. Still that’s no excuse at all, which is why I can’t stress how important it is for queer people, especially younger ones, to take safety precautions when going out looking for hookups & while dating (it’s sad af that we even have to) with there being so many people similar to these self proclaimed “DL” gays that be struggling with their own internal issues and ragging with toxic hyper masculinity to hide their true sexual identity. Not saying that all queer men on the DL are like this of course but there’s too many that are, that let that internalized homophobia and self hatred make them commit similar hate crimes. Whether they do it out of fear of being exposed or as a outlet for their anger or whatever. This case is just tragic af and my heart goes out to #BlazeBernstein family and loved ones, may he RIP #lgbt #lgbtcommunity #lgbtq 🌈 #homophobia #internalizedoppression #internalizedhomophobia #selfhate
Patriarchal conditioning has gotten us away from trusting ourselves, especially if we’re empaths and HSPs. I just talked more about this in my LIVE video here on Insta. CLICK MY PROFILE IMAGE to watch the replay. 🌴 🌴 🌴 Self-trust is what I guide you through in my online program, Thrive & Shine. Trusting your feelings. Trusting the energy & wisdom you pick up on. Trusting your sensitivity. Trusting your intuition & inner voice above anyone else’s. Trusting yourself to OWN your gifts and learn & KNOW *how* & *when* to use them in ways that serve you best (which will then serve the rest of the world). 🌴 🌴 Trust that you already know what to do. 🌴 🌴 Trusting yourself is a feminist act. It’s part of getting free.. 🌴 🌴 P. S. If you’re wanting to develop your self-trust more with a trusted guide (AKA: Me 😉), own your gifts & learn how to set healthy boundaries, be with your emotions & trust your intuition (and get free from internalized oppression), then I invite you to enroll in Thrive & Shine today! 🌴 🌴 You have a few more days to get Thrive & Shine at its current, lower price before it increases significantly (Wed, Sept 26th). Imagine feeling more free, at ease, and confident in your gifts, mind and body! You can get started right away 💋 🌴 🌴 CLICK THE LINK IN MY BIO TO ENROLL NOW, beautiful soul💋
“I don’t want to go to school. I feel stressed out. I’m so stressed. Mama, why am I not as smart as the other kids?I don’t understand what’s happening in math. I’m the dumbest one in the class. Why am I so dumb?” Second week of school and this is what I’m hearing. 💔💔💔💔💔 And then I dream of leaving......selling EVERYTHING and traveling the world with her. It’s an unclear and vague idea. I question why I’m staying in this country, living this life. Is it because I’m SUPPOSED to? Who says? And why do I listen? There’s more to life than tests, school, suburbs and the usual American ideals. I’m torn and I’m tired and I don’t want my daughter feeling this way at such a tender age. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #unschooling #thesystemsucks #toomuchhomework #bs #beatthemdown #americaneducation #sohard #internalizedoppression #homeschool #isthisnormal #letsgotobali #letsrunaway #heartbroken #singlemomlife

You've realized your house is messy.⠀ There's dirt and clutter everywhere.⠀ Or maybe it's hiding in the nooks and crannies of the space.⠀ ⠀ What do you do then? Do you keep talking about how your house is messy? Do you spend your whole time trying to find out who created the mess? Or maybe you already know it and spend your days complaining about how others caused all the mess in your house?⠀ ⠀ Some people spend their lives like that - talking about how their house is messy but never realizing that it's up to them to pick up the freaking broom and clean it if they want it clean!⠀ ⠀ And yes, maybe the job will require a lot of moving stuff around and a lot of scrubbing, but it is YOUR house and your responsibility to deal with it as it is now. ⠀ ⠀ And not until you decide you want it clean and you are willing to do whatever it takes to get it cleaned, you will sit in a mess.⠀ Nobody can decide that for you, but you can get the support and resources that you need to get through the process however arduous it may be.⠀ ⠀ Don't waste any more precious day feeling powerless to get out of the chaos.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ . ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #internalizedoppression #internalizedmisogyny #emotionalfreedom #abusecycle #intergenerationaltrauma #domesticviolencesurvivor #freefromabuse #traumahealing #relationshipaddiction #loveaddiction #selfcompassion #selflovecoaching #chooseyourselfeveryday #setyourselffree #rewriteyourstory #kundaliniactivation #therebirth #havecourage #spiritualawakenings #bebravewithyourlife #ownyourpower #selfrespectfirst #liberateyourself #itsonyou #mondaymotivational #mondaymorningmotivation #selfresponsibility #problemsolver #crisiscoach #fiercewomen ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Here is a clip from my Gender Reflection Video in my NEW Program: Gender Aware + Action. . . In order to be a more gender conscious human, leader, entrepreneur and creative, it’s important to reflect on how you’ve been affected by gender and what you’ve been taught about gender. . . In this program, I guide you through this reflection offering you the support that you need. . . “Cameron has taught me a lot with great compassion, grace and wisdom.” ~ @darlaantoine ❤️ ❤️ I appreciate this feedback so much because it’s definitely my intention to teach and guide with compassion and empathy because confronting this gender stuff can be challenging, and it’s a systemic issue, not an individual one though we have an individual responsibility to make a difference and create new freedom. . . I love working with cisgender and nonbinary entrepreneurs and creatives to help you enter this next level gender awareness and integrate it into your business, projects, community and everyday life! . . If this sounds like you, then I invite you to ENROLL TODAY! Just CLICK ON THE LINK TO ENROLL & get started right away with the material! . . This program includes video material + 1:1 sessions with me + a written guide + Extra resources + check-ins & follow-ups. . . And, there’s STILL TIME to get $200 OFF with the code I sent to my email community. Not in my email community? CLICK THE LINK IN BIO to hop on & get it! ❤️ ❤️ If my program feels right for you right now, then I so look forward to working with you 💋 💋 . If you know someone who would love to work with me and be in this program, feel free to share it with them! ❤️

A little alignment cleanup moment strolling through the neighborhood with @angie.the_rehab_queen I’m working through a back spasm resulting from finally energetically letting go of walking on eggshells as a result of various intersections of #internalizedoppression and external oppression aggravated by falling into a mysterious hole in city property a couple weeks ago. Now that I’ve released the oppressive force from my energy body—what I call slaying demons—it’s working it’s way all the way out of my physical body in a clear and uncomfortable way. Enlightenment is simple and not necessarily easy! #nevernormal #quantumnegresstantras
Don’t u hate it when sometimes every normal thing you do comes out super sexy no matter what , ugh. It’s a nice problem to have but it’s still such an affliction #internalizedoppression #stopthesexy #supportgroup #MorMor
Fine Arts Faculty Genevieve DeLeon: "I unconsciously draw figures whose skin tone is lighter than my own. Each note in this installation reflects an attempt to draw a brown figure or to understand what that might mean. Each also explores the construction of whiteness. Some are studies from photographs. Others are invented. I have arranged them in the proportions of a Mayan ceremonial cloth. I like to think this cloth could be used in a ritual to end internalized oppression." See 320 Notes Toward Drawing a Brown Figure at this Friday's reception for the 2018 Faculty Biennial, on view through September 23. ⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ #makemcad #figuredrawing #portraitdrawing #internalizedoppression
