Black Lives Matter

Below you’ll find a list of articles, educators, resources, organizations, healers, and businesses to buy from. This is by no means an extensive list but I do hope this gives you a place to start. I am absolutely not an anti-racist or racial justice educator.  I’m a person who is white and will forever be messing up, learning, unlearning, and relearning. 

Please do your research. Read. Listen to podcasts. Google all the things. Pay for classes/workshops/books/Patreon/Podia/offerings by Black and Brown women anti-racism educators (click the links in their bios). If you find value in what is shared on a social media account, consider sending money to their Venmo, PayPal, Patreon, etc. Do not show up in the spaces of Black, Brown, and Indigenous folks expecting free emotional labor from them. 

Email and call your representatives. If you are in a position of privilege, donate money and/or supplies. 

Pay for the work of BBIWoC+. Follow the lead of Black women. Buy from Black and Indigenous businesses, entrepreneurs, writers, artists, etc.

Dismantling racism and white supremacy is spiritual work. It is active work. It is ongoing work. This work is forever.

Black lives matter always.

Black Astrologers, Tarot Readers, Psychics & Healers

Not listed in the below list and I recommend:

  • Jordiana – She offers incredibly insightful readings. I was blown away by the reading I had. She used a combination of numerology, card pulls, and her psychic talents. I loved that the messages she provided were so on point and she had a ton of practical tips and exercises for me to implement which was super helpful.
  • The Spirit House Collective created by Aja, the Spirit Guide Coach. If you are white or white passing, find out how to become True Wellness Ally to help provide free and discounted workshops for BBIPOC+. If you are BBIPOC+, you can find out how to join the True Wellness Sponsorship Program.

Protesting Safely

Repost @AOC Caption:

BE SAFE. Here’s our guide on being prepared for safe protests. PLEASE READ ⬇️
.
1. LOOK OUT FOR THINGS THAT DON’T SEEM RIGHT. There are increasing reports and investigations that white supremacists may be infiltrating these protests, breaking windows and destroying property. If anything seems off to you, DOCUMENT IT. Always check who is organizing.
.
2. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS OF GRASSROOTS BLACK ORGANIZERS. They have been at this a long time and are disciplined in the ropes of community organizing and demonstration. It IS a discipline. Follow trusted leaders whose goal has been the focused pursuit of justice. If they just showed up, that’s a red flag.
.
3. HAVE A BUDDY. Make sure someone is keeping an eye on you and check in on them.
.
4. STAY SAFE and take care of each other. 💜
