In the spirit of the new year and spring, I wanted to share with y’all the importance of true internal cleansing. In order for us to move forward we must let go of our old selves whether that be physically or spiritually. A proper detox and or cleansing is needed. Our best self cannot truly manifest without making new room for that growth to truly be. All the pain, trauma, and toxins we ingest over the months/years have a way of collecting within us internally and will not remove itself unless we do the necessary root work to remove the waste. 🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃
Detoxing on a spiritual level can look like:
Having a shamanic clearing
Grounding or earthing (touching bare feet to earth)
Spiritual baths with herbs(not to be used in replacement of a shower or washing yo ass)
Moon bathing 🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋
Physical detox can look like:
No food fasting
Sauna or steam room
Consuming raw foods for extended period of time 🌞🌝🌸
Always do your research on anything before trying something new! Happy spring cleaning people.
Today I was asked by a cis man, if I have made my bracket. -He is aware that I am trans and has known me throughout all of HRT.-
My response was “nah, I’m not into sports.” He replied “What? You have to be now!” “Now that what?” *nudge* “You know!” No. I don’t know.
Being read as male has encouraged cis men to feel okay forcing their ideas of what my identity as a man should look like.
Some may say that he was trying to be inclusive. I say inclusion would embrace diversity.
I have caught myself forcing my feminine side to stay hidden in groups of men. It’s so scary to stand out, but it’s also empowering. I feel powerful when I let myself exist as I do when I’m alone, in an environment filled with toxic masculinity. When I stop filtering my words and actions so I can fit into the environment and decide to just fit into myself. I will not force myself to try and fit in with a group of men. I will not put myself into a box so that others can see me as a man or even masculine.
Days that I fully embrace my feminine side are days that I feel most whole. I am a femme boi that couldn’t care less about sports and loves nail polish, glitter and fairies. I will not apologize for that.
Fuck gender stereotypes. Be yourself. Live authentically. Don’t apologize for loving and embracing your true self.
It takes work to remember this daily, but this is well worth the effort.
