I don't mean just romantic relationships. I mean all. The relationship with you "friends", the relationship with family, etc. It's important to not only recognize when a relationship ship is toxic but also remove them from you life.
Removing toxic relationships from your life is difficult for several reasons. Often time we are dependent in some way on those people. A place to stay, financial, mentally, physically. So it makes separation difficult.
Also the truth that nothing is bad all the time. There are moments of reprieve in the worst situations. Abusers don't always abuse. So we justify. We barter with ourselves. We stay. And the cycle of abuse continues.
I've been there. Arguably still am.
The thing to do is to keep a goal in mind to remove yourself from that situation as soon as possible and never lose sight of that goal. Note I said goal, NOT wish. NOT prayer. GOAL. Goals should have dates of completion. Goals should have plans. Goals should have steps. Come up with your exit goal. Maybe it with resources you have and ones that arent quite available but are attainable. The put your plan into motion.
It isn't how slow you move, just that you never stop moving.
Giving thanks to the #DivineFeminine Inner-G. 👸🏿 As the black women heals, the world heals... The powerful, #DivineMasculine energy of black men, though in its own process of healing, is still overwhelmingly suffering from #Megalomania , due to a societal infrastructure that’s designed to invert our masculinity, and usurp our #Power . Hence why we crave it with such imbalance. We have the want for knowledge, but we need to incorporate the want to heal. 🔑
Women biologically and mentally mature quicker, so we need to have the spiritual fortitude (and patience) to learn from their example. As a culture, we’re all recovering from the same generational trauma, but women’s intuition, empathy, and overall more expansive range of e-motion, and communication is quickening their journeys. Now it’s plenty of fake ass women healers out here, just like it’s plenty of men out here hustling consciousness.. But it’s up to the individual to take whatever information they need and apply it to their circumstance, rather “Worshipping” the messenger... 🔑
Men are the designers of civilizations, but woman are the material in which it’s built from... The design of a pyramid is functional within itself, but the material it’s made out of is what gives it the longevity... The key is to properly coalesce these energies and create #DivineBalance ⚖️ -KhepeRa ✨

Fear has always been something to plague me. Fear is a nasty thing. It's like smoke- even when it's gone it lingers. Just trying to not be afraid is like telling someone to stop blinking. Fear is quite possibly what separates those who make their dreams come true and who do not.
There are also different types of fear, a healthy fear and an unhealthy fear. Healthy fear puts fire in your heart. Gets you off your butt to do what you have to do. Unhealthy fear prevents you from doing things and going after things. That's how you can tell the difference.
And if you find yourself stuck under the unhealthy kind of fear, turn it on itself. Remember why you started. Remember what you've already accomplished. And remember how amazing it felt to accomplish it.
If you were brought to it you can get through it. Fear be danmed
Almost didn’t post this. The longer I looked at this beautiful pic; I found so many things wrong with myself; and felt a lot of old dumb ass insecurities pop up. Then I stopped... and said “WTF! If you don’t like something; fix it. You know how; with your unmotivated ass.” WE (you too) HAVE TO enjoy life until we change the shit we don’t like! The opinions of a few MF’s who don’t matter are keeping some of us from living our best lives. Get out! Live, work towards some dreams and be a better version of YOURSELF everyday. 📷: Johnny Jones @35mmeye

I’ve really been feeling Nephthys lately so I made a collage of her with a picture that I took. Some more about her: *
Nephthys is often considered a protective goddess of the dead, but she’s much more than that. As twin to Isis, who embodies the birth experience, Nephthys embodies the death experience. For this reason, she is often overlooked modernly, in the shadow of her sister. Pairs of deities often represent dualities of phenomena. In my mind, she embodies the medial place between life and death, between material and immaterial. She is the limit, the boundary, the threshold we must all cross be it in death or rebirth, and she is the force that keeps that sacred space. She is the boundary of metaphor and reality, guardian of in-between places, and ways of being. As most Egyptian deities, she is complex, paradoxical, and often considered in tandem with other deities including and outside of Isis. *
In my personal journey, I have often connected to psychopomps (Anubis, too, holds a special place in my heart. Perhaps she remembers this). So the arrival of Nephthys is not out of the ordinary. As an anthropology major, i have been interested in midwives and women’s studies. Nephthys, too, is a protector of women and midwife. It is as if she heard my call and came. *
She is also Mistress of Renewal. Lady of the Limit. The Joy Filled One. One Who Speaks Through Silence. The Revealed. Mighty One of Words of Power (in this form she is connected to Seshat). *
Because her hieroglyphic name translates directly to Lady of House (most likely Temple or sky) she is sometimes conflated with Hathor (house of Horus) or even the Greek Hestia. The original meaning is not known. Interestingly, it’s quite possible this is just another one of her Titles and not her actual name. It is for this reason I feel she introduced herself to me in a whisper on my mind as Nameless One. *

I’ve always resonated with W.B. Yeats. His poetry and writings are infused and steeped in the occult, metaphysics, the paranormal, the otherworldly, Kabbalah, reincarnation, and communication with the dead. He became a founding member of the Hermetic Society, met occultist Helena Blavatsky (Theosophical Society), and joined the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn along with the Welsh author I love, Arthur Machen. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ As a writer who uses poetry as a manifestation and transformation tool, and inspired by Yeats and the Automatic Writing sessions he held, in future I‘d like to hold workshops on writing lyrical poems and poetic invocations that we can utilize in our magical practices, which can act as powerful springboards for personal transformation. We would discover how to summon our muse in order to heighten our manifestation abilities. Variants of this practice would be calling on dead poets, seeking one’s daemon/duende (the potent power of artistic inspiration and expression), using imagery, and working under the guidance of Hekate, Orpheus, goddesses Seshat and Brighid, and Hermes/Mercury. We would develop our stream of consciousness writings and hold sessions of automatic writing, which would then be formatted into personalized, lyrical invocations to infuse the magical rites we perform and help us connect deeper with spirits and deities. #mission#yeats#wbyeats#poetry#magic#occult#transformation#lyric#creativewriting#automaticwriting#streamofconsciousness#mercury#hekate#seshat#muse#daemon#duende#edmunddulac ~ image: WB Yeats's 'A Vision'
Quem foi Seshat? 🤔😶😯
Vocês sabiam que existem deuses em várias religiões que estão fortemente ligados a planta cannabis? Um bom exemplo disto é a deusa Seshat.
Seshat era uma deusa do antigo Egito que leva uma folha de maryjuana em sua cabeça nos hieróglifos que retratam sua imagem. Segundo os egípcios ela trazia sabedoria, além de ser responsável por dar vida às construções sagradas do Egito.
Quando a construção de um templo sagrado está concluída, estabelece-se a conexão com o divino, uma comunhão com o sagrado que pode ser sentido a partir da terra. Seshat é responsável pela abertura do “portal cósmico”.
Em um dos escritos antigos encontrado nas explorações feitas nos sarcófagos tem o seguinte dizer: Seshat abre a porta do céu para você. Muito misteriosa esta Seshat! 😄🍁
