Reflections from the First Fall Healing Circle …
I'm not a victim, I am FREE!
The smell of agua florida will hit you the minute you walk onto 140th st. It is a sure sign that a healing circle is happening at casa. There will be awom(y)n dressed in white throwing water away on the side walk engulfed in the smoke of the sage seeping through the communities windowsgently nudging them to wake up and breathe in the fall wind. As you get closer you can hear the drums pounding the walls of the building inviting everyone to dance in celebration cause we are alive. InsideCasa, there a community member cooking up a storm, reminding us that we are hungry, hungry for justice, hungry to forgive, and hungry to healso we can accept the powerful wom(yn) we are in spite of our past.Today, I come to let go of fear, to not be afraid, to start over , to stop running, and to forgive myself. I want to let go of letting go, of letting goof abandonment, of fear, and of insecurities. Tears, screaming voices once lost, punching pillows, imagining, reclaiming untold stories, sacredbodies, repairing war zones. White fabric dancing, laughter, safe touch, hugs, community and affirmations.In front of mirrors we are scared to see our new selves. To look into eyes oncefilled with judgment and blurred perceptions of ourselves. But with holdinghands and our breathe we share...1. What I have to say is worth being heard and I shouldn't be afraid to say it.2. You know who you are and who you want to be. That person is beautiful!3. Its okay to make mistakes. Its okay to stay and I don't have to run.4. I am good enough and I am loved.5. I did the best I could.6. I am successful no matter the outcome.7. I am not going to be held down.8. I'm not a victim and I am free!Thank you!On Sat , Oct 4th, 2011, Casa organized its first Fall Healing Circle for the year 2011.
