You need to pay attention to how you use your spirituality and what you are consuming. Knowing where and what something comes from is important because not all from a good place.
Two of the one’s that bugs me the most are Spirit Animal and smudging. Native American’s have asked more then once to stop using those terms. They have very specific meanings.
Does this mean you can’t work with Animal energies or allies?
But it does mean that Brittany Spears is not your spirit animal.
Don’t go there.
Can you use incense? Yeah, you may be cleansing your space or energy but call it cleansing or clearing. So many words to use for this one. I go with censing as that is closet to what I do when I use something that burns.
It also means knowing what racist language looks like and not the outright racist shit. The stuff that looks and feels almost okay. You may want to let it slide, don’t!
You will keep learning what’s okay and what’s not. Which symbols you want to avoid and which are fine. It is up to you and me to figure it out. If a person of color tells you it is a problem, then it is a problem.
You are responsible for working out any triggering emotions around it, not the person of color. It is worth the work.
BTW: See you in June between treatment week and regularly scheduled downtime! You won’t see a card reveal until then.
