In the Wilderness

“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.” Revelation 12:14

…it is me being,  the account of ancient African times, my belief in the spiritual work of Jesus Christ, and all who mirror that path, which confirms that I am a royal priestess.  As one reflection of  God/dess, I flow with an “oomph” that speaks to what naturally is…what’s true.  I am often misunderstood, as this way of thought is counterbalanced by how most of us feel about the truth…when we haven’t managed to escape it altogether.

I am content to create what I am purposed to in my corner of the world.  I write, speak, and sing my truth… I study, I pray, I eat, I laugh, I cry, I wife, I mother, I teach.  Get closer to me and you’ll learn that I discern spirits, I ‘know what I know’, I listen, I empathize, I prophesy, I harmonize, and I care.  I gather lessons from the bushes and plants just outside my door.  I honor what ‘is’ without as well as what ‘is’ within.  Like, when I oil my inner-bark browned skin with Shea Butter to entertain angels.  Like when I respect what my womb creates as a natural regenerator of breath and life.  Or, like when I wash my kinky hair with sunlight and the wind to thank God for my natural tresses, my crown. I am forever grateful.  But arriving here, on this tree stump was no easy feat.  More than ever in my life, I am sweeter, better, nobler…yet my journey is far from over.        – InnaRae
