In times of confusion, overwhelm and great change, knowing who you are and what you stand for goes a long way in navigating the world (and your emotions) when the winds of change blow. Take a look at my own personal manifesto to connect with what matters, bring healing, awaken to new levels of consciousness, and express what a new earth could be like.
Remember that doing the work is not always the same as showing you’re doing the work.
Black lives matter
Seek to understand the interconnectedness of capitalism, climate change, inequality and injustice. Take action steps to dismantle oppressive systems while recognising how I benefit from them.
Don't let the problems of the world swallow you.
Be willing to give things up: beliefs, comforts, status, pride.
Sit with discomfort and anger. Channel this energy into small but potent actions.
See everyone as a mirror to the parts of yourself you’d rather keep hidden. Practice compassion.
Move very, very slow. With patience the path will unfold. Do not force your way out of pain.
Rest is resistance. Opting out of narratives that tell you your worth is in serving, “showing up”, fixing, doing, creating, producing is based on lack and fear. I am enough, exactly as I am.
Holding space for others without an agenda allows them to be their own magic.
Fuck goals. Embrace intention.
Be gentle with your and others trauma responses. Approach with curiosity.
Be an obnoxious breather. Make no apology.
Explore how I can atone for the mistakes of my ancestors while honouring that they, too, were flawed people doing the best they could.
Support one or two local causes campaigning against injustice with money, energy, my voice.
Vote for parties who seek justice, love, environmental conservatism, equality but know that no political party is the solution.
Promote collaboration over competition. Feminine medicine isn’t always called feminine medicine, but be wise enough to recognise it when it shows up in unlikely places.
Buy less, buy local, or buy from women doing good in the world. Content and peaceful people make terrible consumers - celebrate this.
Practice forgiveness (and keep practising)
Set boundaries around your health: mental, emotional, physical, spiritual.
You are not bad for feeling joy and pleasure. You are not broken if you can feel neither.
Redraw what a life well lived looks like. Embrace the sacredness of the ordinary, mundane and "small".
Use my platform and my voice, no matter how small I think it is, to promote the work and voices of black and marginalised voices, especially in the world of healing, yoga, womb work.
Lovingly call out injustice when I come across it in real life, but maintain boundaries around online interactions. Choose where to channel your energy carefully.
Return to the body
Recognise that people you disagree with believe they are coming from a place of love too. Be curious about their point of view and lived experience.
Learn, ask questions, learn some more.
Regulate. Spend all damn day regulating your nervous system if you need to. Understand what triggers you and what soothes you. Make a list of both and pin to the fridge.
Call people I love more often
A smile at a stranger is a direct achievement. When you feel you're not contributing enough, remember the contagiousness of good energy.
Seek out and celebrate all that is glorious in the world.
I invite you to consider my manifesto for creating a new earth as inspiration to write your own. Allow it to become a touchstone to return to again and again during times of challenge and uncertainty.
This is pretty personal to me, but would love to know what might be on your manifesto too? Or if anything on my list feels exciting/uncomfortable for you?
