It's been a while. Since my last post I have been healing, mothering and re-evaluating each part of my life. And I am still in the midst of this all. I have a beautiful daughter now, I have left my relationship of 9 years and I am on a healing and processing journey that is dealing with all that has surfaced in these deeply transformational times.
Next to awakening as a self-posessed, sovereign woman, I am also awakening to my black skin and what it means to be a black woman, black mother, black single mother and black spiritual midwife. This has been a deeply confronting and freeing part of my journey. I am looking into what it means accepting this skincolour and how it influences the way I show up in life and love. One thing I do know; for too long I have been a puppet to the white gaze. I am looking at my work as a guide, coach and medium through a new lens now.
I am ready to center my own voice and those of my BIWOC community (Black Indigenous Women of Colour).
For now I am still in the proces of deep healing and processing. I only write during this time. No sessions. No readings.
I have decided to no longer share my writings here. But to share my writings through Patreon (www.patreon.com/sharonalautoe) . So that the labour I put into it is being compensated and I am able to take care of me. And to create a community that is committed to really listen, process, ask questions, learn and join the conversation.
I talk about race, motherhood, my journey as a woman and more.
