In honor of African American History Month, it feels really timely to address the shadow of oppression that has woven into our collective and personal histories and to also recognize the treasured gifts of humanity's struggle to rise up despite it all.
The roots of oppression are deep and we are ALL somehow connected to and through them through our own experiences and our inheritance from our ancestors. As many of us wake up to the fullness of this reality, we find it difficult to accept ourselves and be with each other in authentic ways.
To address this issue I am working with and through the World Peace Hologram project to invite us to come together and share our personal lens on our inherited issues with oppression, so that through the work of Resonance Repatterning we can unlock some of the energy that is bound up in this area of our lives. The way it works is that:
1) You fill out the survey found HERE
2) On February 26th a group of resonance repatterning students will be coming together and actually do a repatterning on your behalf using all of the answers collected
3) With your consent, your energy will be proxied into the session and will be added to shifting our collective resonance with our history of oppression
4) A summary of the session will be posted on the World Peace Hologram site, so you can see what the outcome of the session was.
When I think of oppression, I think of its roots as being our own natural tendency to not love and accept ourselves, each other, and our lives exactly how they are. The video below is one I have posted before, but I love it so much and it captures this sense of acceptance we have lost, that I can't help but post it again. It is a spoken word performance by Climbing PoeTree describing this tendency so playfully. Yes, oppression is also about larger economic systems that encourage grasping and taking from other peoples (including non-human peoples and future generations), but my feeling is that as we learn to authentically love and value ourselves (realizing that we are a part of this earth and everything on it), we naturally disengage from these systems and live in more earth and people-honoring ways.
