Several months ago, I put it out there to become a mother and had begun exploring the necessary steps to become one despite not having a partner. Sadly, circumstances have forced me to abandon my efforts for the time being. However, since putting out that intention, every bell pepper I've cut into contained a "baby pepper". I saved this one to use for an intention setting ritual. In this ritual, I didn't ask for a baby. I didn't ask for the conditions to create a family. I asked for healing, surrender, and openess... If you look closely, you will see three seed attached to my pepper. This is significant! Girls, while in utero, already carry all of their eggs! This means that while my grandmother was pregnant with my mother, my mother had the eggs that would eventually become my brother and I. That said... my grandmother was also pregnant with me! Aren't Women fucking magical?! As a trauma informed practitioner, I know trauma is inherited. Trauma changes our DNA and our Cellular Memory. Trauma expresses itself through the worldviews and behaviors we pass onto our children.
Through studying the intergenerational patterns within my own family...patterns of motherhood, of relationships with men & sexuality, of losing fathers, of hysterectomies, fertility, reproductive cancer and disease... my inability to create the conditions to successfully conceive and carry a pregnancy to term stems from trauma...my own, as well as, those experienced by the women in my family.
So I asked for healing of the Womb and to be able to hear what She needs. Well, She's been speaking!
I may plant those three seeds as a symbol of nurturing those generational memories wounded by the past, but still strive to thrive.❤️
Cumin & thyme spice chicken curry. Woke up wanting comfort food but I didn’t have coconut milk so I tried the unsweetened almond milk I had in the fridge as a base. It worked well but I do miss the coconut flavor mingling with the spice. Chop onions and garlic and sautée in your pot. Add cumin, curry powder, salt, cayenne and thyme. Stir in the almond milk to boil. Add chopped potatoes. Bake lightly seasoned chicken slightly. Cut and place in boiling mixture. I let it simmer for awhile come back and add veggies when the flavor and the consistency is right. I usually like my curries thick but a light one will do too. I got into a conversation the other day that had me referencing Dr. Wynter and this amazing research paper. It’s online for free: http://coribe.org/PDF/wynter_socio.pdf it’s dense but worth it she literally changes the entire game. And because I danced last night and missed sister Nancy, I had to play her excellence this morning. This is a West Indian lady appreciation post.
