i hope you are celebrating our freedom journey today Black loves, definitely by not working, hopefully by being involved in radical acts with your mind, body, heart, and spirit.
i am extending my heart protection over every Black person who needs it today. i invite those who aren’t/can’t be on front lines today to join me in this spell:
i dedicate my life force to Black people
that we may celebrate and leap forward,
know freedom without waiting,
that when our chance to be courageous comes,
we feel no hesitation
i extend protection over our freedom fighters
pulling up from the earth mountains around each cluster of Blackness
i lend speed and flexibility to our body and mind for moments of adaptation, a river of Black liberation
i cast away all effort to harm us, today and all days, may it fall away as pollen no creature will carry
today we continue the work of burning down slavery
today we cannot be distracted from the target
today we cannot be kept from the joy
today we cannot be made small
today we can only be free
hold on to your collaborators, dance in the face of provocateurs, ignore those who try to draw your attention from the collective target of defunding police/evolving beyond policing. keep love at the center, and enjoy your precious Black life all day long.
if you wonder, worry or doubt about how you’re doing the day, listen for harriet whispering to you, “my people are free.” not will be, but are. act accordingly.
