It’s time we stop. That we put an end to the defamation of women and the labels whispered in the rise of the feminine and the awakening of the witches. The outdated, malicious gossip we’ve all heard before - that an empowered woman is intimidating. A beautiful woman is vulnerable to assault. A direct woman is rude. A strong woman is too masculine. An intelligent woman threatens your ego. A fun woman isn’t responsible. A serious woman is too uptight. An attractive woman is shallow. A woman with a voice is too opinionated. A bleeding woman is crazy. A motivated woman is selfish. A managerial woman is bossy. A self-made woman is too confident. You know what? Enough is enough. Because we bleed or don’t bleed, we are VALID. Because we speak or don’t speak, we are valid. Because we work or don’t work, we are valid. Because we exist, we are fucking valid. We do not need to strive to be desirable for anyone if we don’t choose to be - we do not need to enhance or alter who we are nor censor what we say to make others feel comfortable. Our responsibility is to be true to ourselves. To see to the cultivation of characteristic morals and values, in which ever way we choose to develop them. To establish a loyalty to our fierce, beating heart.
The ultimate rebellion in a mechanical world is self-validation. To stand, straight backed, in our authenticity. To know that because WE ARE - we are bloody VALID.
No more hiding and shrinking and sneaking around in the dark. Drop the invisible cloak. Hold your own. Respect your story and a sisters story. Take a sisters hand. Band together. Our wildness should not be feared, but revered. The machine has long been broken. Beat your drums with pride and rise, witches. RISE 🖤 @tree_of_stars C xx #witches#selfempowerment#virgovibes#newmoon#authenticity#carriefisher#womensempowerment#femininerising#healedfeminine#witch#pride#awakenthewitches
12 years ago today I was walking back to my dorm room in New Orleans after a concert when a man that I considered a good friend - a man that I trusted - tried to kill me... because I rejected him. The next year and a half was a horrifying mess of manipulation and abuse, followed by ten years of stalking and intimidation. And that barely scratches the surface on that story.
This has affected every single day of my life - along with every romantic and platonic relationship that I've had - for the last 12 years. I am still dealing with the long term effects of a traumatic brain injury from the concussion/coma. The entire left side of my face has been reconstructed (I'm an actual metalhead, ha!). I finally saw a therapist for the first time a few years ago to deal with the PTSD I wasn't even aware that I had. This is the first time I've mentioned it on the internet since it happened. It's a little scary, not going to lie. .
The square root of two is a rather profound mathematical concept that proves the existence of the irrational. It states that "the whole is more than just a sum of its parts" - and today of all days, this resonates extra strongly. Three dots, because 3 is indivisible. I am more than what has happened to me. I always have been - it just took me a while to forgive myself enough to believe it. 🖤🖕🖤 . .
. .....Oh, and.... Fuck you, Will Hunt. I win.
Thanks for doing this for me, @delphififthsun. It's perfect.
Happy death day to me. ☠ #metoo

When they tell you that you can’t be 👽 show them with your actions what your name means & why god has you exist 🌞 in palmistry the middle finger is governed by the planet Saturn & represents discipline & balance ⚖️ in mudras when the middle finger aligns with the thumb which to me represents the will , it become SHUNI which represents the seal of patience. In the Bible scriptures they call patience long suffering. The middle finger also represents courage to hold duty & responsibility. In Japanese sign language the middle finger means brother. I enjoy this gesture as a reminder of personal energy & intention. In what ways are you serving yourself the bird? Are you telling yourself no? Are you refusing the opportunities given to you? Are you grateful for what you have now? Are you showing yourself love & making a choice change for the positive of all? Are you always doubting yourself or cursing? Are you honoring your individualism? Are you courageous to be you & follow through with your dharma ; your destiny? Are you on the flip side & in too much of an oppressive nature? Are you hesitant to tell others no or are you always in a cycle of doing? How do you balance? What is your at it tude? How are you looking at it and coming at it? Are you self doubting & restraining yourself from authenticity? I’m willing to assist you to honor & love yourself & recognize your purpose & power of your awareness by offering personalized healing sessions of guided meditations & intuitive readings. Intentional focus on triggers & emotional turmoil & mental agitation. Give yourself permission to lighten your heart load & allow your mind to be at ease & rest. If there are expressions that continually resurface they are coming up to release. Attempt to not suppress & condition the human experience. Simply notice your repulsions & your attracted tos. Know that you are not your thoughts or your actions ; you are the ever present witness. Be kind. Enjoy the process of refinement & growth. Release your attachments & end suffering. Do because you love not because you fear or have an expectation of a desired result. You are loved. You are forgiven. Be at peace by seeing us all as family 🐝
