There are always going to be times when our sovereignty and our ability to thrive come under threat. While it doesn’t come as a surprise to many of us, the rage that many of us feel is daunting.
It must flow within us and we must be able to use it strategically.
A Sovereign Chant
Today, as Roe v. Wade was overturned, Ivy and I sat with our rage. The difference is that this is not a new rage and it is not a new rage that has echoed through generations before us. This is a primordial rage and it is sacred. However, it is imperative that we meet this rage in all its glory from a place of grounded-ness, rootedness, sovereign-ness, and above all else – we use it to take strategic action.
When you need clarity and strength, strategy and protection, use this chant:
I call upon Themis, she of wise counsel
I call upon Athena, strategist that beats them at their own game
I call upon Medusa, a gaze they cannot hold
and protectress of sisters
I call upon my ancestors, may their energy and protection roar through me
I call upon the Dark Goddesses, their righteous rage
To remove the bindings those in power seek to place upon us and instead resolve to stay:
And strategically powerful with the reverberations and actions of millions of women before me
Strategic As I speak it, it is so
