From 👑 @queenafua… “QUESTION OF THE DAY [QOTD]: What is a Sacred Woman? QUEEN AFUA: “Within their wombs, many women are holding years of pain, abuse, secrets rape, incest, anger, resentment and poor nutrition. Because of this their level of creativity, inspiration, stability, success in relationships and fertility levels have become impaired. Within in their wombs they are suffering from infertility, tumors, fibroids, cysts, extreme PMS, clotting and mood swings and are even at risk of having a hysterectomy. A Sacred woman is a restored woman. A healed woman. A powerful woman. A natural medicine woman. A gentle woman. A warrior woman. A vibrant woman. A spiritually mature woman. A woman who knows how to heal herself and her family.” #SacredWoman #SacredWisdom #WednesdayWisdom #KnowThyself #HealThyself #Sankofa #HonorTheTemple #YogaMaat #KemeticYoga #WombDance #YogaSkills #aswanlife
"precious breast so big and round
precious breast so small and profound
you are the mountains and the great
hills of my world
i shall meditate on top of my world
and visualize my breast filled with
vibrant sun energy"
"Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belong to a man-a woman who was ‘one-in-herself.’ The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chasity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past…, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus-they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramatic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chasity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched. When Joan of Arc, with her witch coven associations, was called La Pucelle-‘the Maiden,’ ‘the Virgin’ - the word retained some of its original pagan sense of a strong and independent woman. The Moon Goddess was worshipped in orgiastic rites, being the divinity of matriarchal women free to take as many lovers as they choose. Women could ‘surrender’ themselves to the Goddess by making love to a stranger in her temple."

You Are What You Wear

Increase your magnetism by energizing your natural beauty.
Whatever moved you to wear a garment, let it express your inner beauty. This is how we stay in tune with Nature’s beautiful sky, green meadows, spring flowers, and mysterious ocean— all gifts of the Creator’s elements.
Beauty in dress is a force that we as Afrakans traditionally combined with purpose. It is how we remain in keeping with the natural flow of beauty in womanform. Every wrap, drape, color, gemstone, headdress, or flower that was worn indicated your past history or present lifestyle and condition. Garments made a statement and had a purpose; this was the Afrakan way. Dress that was spiritually directed was worn for tribal ceremonies and rituals. Members of the same family often wore the same colors or made clothes from the same kind of cloth. Women wore particular drapes and jewelry to indicate their marital status. The Ancients understood that what you place on your Body Temple is of great significance. This is why we must wear our clothes consciously. Clothes can ward off demons and summon angels. Observe and keep a mental record of how your world is affected, and in turn how you are affected, by what you wear or what others wear
