If the Sankofa Journey to Rena’s Moan enlightens the soul. Then this next journey (album) takes us one step further – to work at reconciling sexuality and spirit. I count every person met (I love you!), lesson learned, tune and poem written on this latest path a gift from Goddess and my ancestors.
With great spiritual support, I tapped into the power within ALL things to integrate the divisions of mind, body, and spirit – as it relates to my femininity. This did not come easy. It took some time, but I had to do away with old, played out, traumatic journeys and lure the fragments of my sensual soul forward into this present time.
I had to remember who I was – before pain, rejection, niggas (um yeah, I said it), sexism, racism, and patriarchy took root in my mind, validated my wounds and hardened my heart. In this context, I had to claw an entire faction of my person away from neglect…from doubts…insecurities and lack – to a place of nurture and love. I was…and I am…a sexual being. And it is a matter of fact that I don’t want to create anything without this energy.
I now know that I am naturally deserving of my greatest pleasure.
Likewise, the Spirit of Truth begs you to use this divine era in time to call your whole self into the present world …and to come to know who you are from that angle. Only then can you offer your authenticity to them who need it most. Become clear that you are the only one who holds the key to entering the sacred spaces of your sexual character – as fashioned in your body, your own Temple.
Through this blog, I share Gaia. In fun and love, this mythological name was given to me by womb Shaman Diva Mama Tonya, whose interest played a compelling role on my unique path to peace. The female character, Gaia, presents intimate situations (that most women share) in a way that shifts the mind – from a place of shame, moral indignation, paralysis, and fear – toward a place in Spirit – where we are empowered, where we no longer hate ourselves, judge others or allow ‘good and bad consciousness’ to block the road to sexual sophistication.
I pray that reading each installment will spark thought and discussion…to the end that no matter where you are in your process toward sensual renewal, maturity and evolution – you are reminded that your erotic expression matters…that it is real…that you are okay, that in it you are a wonder to behold and yes, you are worthy.
