I, along with everyone, is in a place of uncertainty and turmoil right now. Mine is more of a moment of resounding clarity and big change pulling me into uncharted waters unlike I never even really imagined for myself. It's exhilarating, exhausting, and can wear even them most resilient brotha down.
Thankfully, COVID has provided my unprecedented time to be with and around myself unencumbered by the gazes that felt so oppressive pre-sheltering. Along with weekly therapy, I have deepened my understanding of who I am and feel more integrated between mind and body. This newly nuanced conversation I've been discovering between rational mind and feeling body has been giving me access to moments I'm "feeling" should happen in a multidimensional way. There is a physical component where I am experiencing a sensation but it's coupled with a deeper knowing that reminds me of the feelings of sound ringing through the body when a large bell is rung. When I feel that I know I'm primed for experiences like tarot readings.
The moment and feeling this morning compelled me to pull out a wonderful tarot deck I have and put on my Elevate playlist. The cards themselves are beautiful hand drawn illustrations of plants that are thoughtfully related to the major and minor arcana.
The music were a perfect compliment and it's words amplified my knowing state as I did my reading. Music is like that for me: the ultimate seasoning.
I am reminded that the more things change, there are always part of you that you can be grounded in. My love of music and it's prevalence in my life is one of those things, and it makes me extremely happy to share it with you. 🙏🏾
