these are a collection of spells from radicals, generated in the spell casting workshop today at the allied media conference!
Console our childlike memories
Caress it’s hood, drink tea with the child
Repeat the emotion of lovemaking
Speak in love into our existence
we call on earth, ancestors and friends to hold us, to stand at our backs
give us ground and give us cover
nurture what we instinctively and lovingly knew as children
for the ground to hold people with privilege as we face the reality of the ancestral and active harms of racism and colonization, for a spark of possibility to push us into transformative action
share your pain, I’ll hold it with mine, release it towards ones that play with your power, a discomfort heered
Clear the illusion and make space for love.
Clear the air surrounding our bodies, identifies, and broken pieces.
Together we will practice forgiveness in the service of creation
And accept uncertainty and all that it brings.
“a flickering light ignites the spark to our rebirth / growth pulsates as we tend to the fires at our center, / illuminating our way so that others are guided by / this ever-deepening love for our eternal liberation.”
— co-created with lucecita cruz, yvonne gail estolas, tara scott-miller + katherine tom
let us counter fear with radical love and generosity
healing our wombs with fierce care for ourselves
going beyond binaries, birthing the revolution
we follow the sun like sunflowers carrying our ancestors wisdom
as the light dawns on you
when the wind disrupts your leaves
carelessly dropping your former fruits to the ground
from the top of your crown
down to your sturdy roots
in the nourishing clarity of the earth
your branches are still growing.
peace, love and gratitude,
Quito, Ayshea, Clare, and Mary Joyce
I am whole in all I bring
Smoke and water flowing things
Protection like a sacred skin
Letting go and letting in
