It's Shanti, your queer baby sister here! 

A brown girl befriending brown liquor and green herbs. They trust what moves them as truth. You can find them deep in the earth of things, fully involved and stimulated by how they view change and create it. A digital archivist  by trade, oracle by birthright, they are of the elements and with them, deeply.

HANDLING CHAOS WITH CARE

HANDLING CHAOS WITH CARE

How do you care? And what causes it to happen? Care implies trust. What do you know about someone’s needs to attend, be with them? What are you willing to find out? Most importantly, how? This vulnerability is earned, not to be expected.

Why do you want the information of someone’s needs? What are your intentions now? The inquiry and energy necessary to seek this information is determined by the person’s vulnerability with themselves. We either project the healing or the hurt, both with the same intention - to comfort the loneliness. Vulnerability as we see fit or need it to be is a reflection of the feelings we encourage or ignore. How are you exhibiting grace?

How are you mutually allowing space to care and be cared for? Balance is in everything; when you realize this your understanding will transform from a burden to a blessing. Yes, even chaos is balance. It teaches you to be intuitive with the experiences, both favorable and unfavorable, that come your way. How are you learning from the world, in the world, with the world?

Gratitude is a practice in being open. Not stopping or slowing down you or they break and reach a new space. Continuing a curiosity that ignited excitement and passion in the first place. It’s brave to a be a reflection of someone because you see yourself twice and differently. Acknowledge and work to understand yourself or be destined to ignore and evade your truths. This fear allows you to be complacent with being shaped by other’s opinions of you. The persistence of this particular fear is dependent on who you want to be and what work you are willing to do (or have to happen to you). The work of understanding, the work to understand requires you to really see yourself from multiple perspectives: in your circumstance, doing the work, and finally beyond your circumstance as reflection. You have the power to determine what defines you.
