“remember what you must do
when they undervalue you,
when they think
your softness
is your weakness,
when they treat your kindness
like it is their advantage.

you awaken
every dragon,
every wolf,
that sleeps inside of you
and you remind them
what [warrior] looks like
when it wears the skin
of a gentle human.”

09/22/2021

“study nature’s ways. learn her rhythms, her seasons, her cycles. see how she hibernates and rests during the cold winter, using that time to replenish and heal. see how she bursts forth in a slow crescendo of green and bright colors over the spring, rejoicing in the inevitable new growth. see how she gives her all, her grandest performance, over the summer months before gradually descending into a final burst of changing colors in autumn. watch her cool down, return to her depths, and again take time to replenish.

these same seasons are within us…
and each season,
each time,
leads into the next.

there is purpose
and value
in each day of your life,
in each season of your life.

nurture your times
of action,
of creating,
of doing,
and value your quieter times of going within.

the more you study nature,
the more you will learn
about yourself.
nurture and trust
the seasons of your soul.”
- melody beattie, journey to the heart

happy first day of fall, lovers! 🍁

many of us will experience several initiations in our lifetime, whether it be into adulthood, partnerhood/marriagehood, parenthood, priesthood, etc. every initiation creates space for another version of ourselves to be born.

we cannot neglect who we once were to become more of who we are. i no longer believe that the old version of who we were completely dies, nor am i someone who believes in the concept of killing the ego. some “old” parts may lessen or may no longer be needed at the time or in the same way, but there are some “old” parts we may still need for the “new”. i believe integration is the key. understanding the roles each of the different parts of ourselves play and how they can co-exist in ways that bring more harmony to our being…in ways that allow us to live the life of our heart’s desire and fulfill our destiny. it ain’t light work, that’s for sure…

there would be no me without all the parts that make up all of who i am. denise in her wisdom often reminds adèdoja about the “ground” so that she isn’t just tending to the spirits of people and neglecting their needs as humans. adédoja in her power reminds denise that there is more than what these eyes, mind, and heart can see. the more i embrace all of who i am and understand the purpose of each part, the more all of my parts work together in a wholistic way. i’m grateful for all the ways they show up in me as me and look forward to the initiations to come (mommyhood, wifeyhood, madrinahood, and even more).

trying to be one part and not the other or deny who i was before or seeing one as better created disharmony for me. being “both…and” is what allows me to be real. some seem to think being “real” is just about allowing space for your “bad behavior” or “flaws” to breathe. for me, it’s about integration. it’s about living in harmony. it’s about integrity with oneself. i’m clear that everything i be is godly, even when i’m being the most human that i can be.

human + divine. i love it here.

“she opened her heart to her entire life and loved it all, even the pain[ful lessons]. to her surprise, a new kind of joy flooded her empty spaces. gardens bloomed there. she became a butterfly and drank the nectar of her own existence. she birthed bliss.” - Jaiya John

healing from the pain is what birthed the medicine that is me. over time, the medicine has become sweeter and even more potent. i’m grateful.

“My first encounter with Akoma Wellness was the Intro to Orisha Class. It was a 6-week exploration of the Orisha tradition. I enjoyed learning more about YorubaLand, the Yoruba language, and how the tradition has been preserved over centuries by oral tradition throughout the African diaspora. I loved learning about the 7 main Orishas, but my very favorite thing was learning about how important our ancestors are and how to develop stronger relationships with them. So many things I'd wondered about for years just came alive and made sense. The class was taught with love, a humble wisdom, strength, knowledge, patience, accuracy and most of all, it was taught by EXAMPLE. Thanks for holding space for me to learn more about myself, my family, and how to continue to get closer to God on this journey called life. This class actually CHANGED my life!” - JN

“talking about your pain, fears, concerns, or regrets will not lower your vibration, tangle your chakras, upset your spirit guides, or cause you to attract more of the same.

beyond all doubts, fears, and superstitions, sharing exists as one of the most direct ways to move repressed energy and release all that is ready to be healed through the words only your deepest hurt can convey.

you may not feel like the most capable version of yourself when allowing your hurt to speak, but you will step into greater alignment with your inner wellspring of authenticity, where you are free to realize — its not a matter of dwelling on what you’ve done, but how boldly you own the wisdom gained.” - Matt Kahn
