xodvf we’re the skin on each others' backs. the dirt beneath each others' nails. the voice in each others' throats. why deny the connection? | my spirit is threatening to weak bum ass females. ((henceforth termed "fvckgirls".)) eye know this. most come attracted to my light thinking they can somehow dim it or take it. i know this. in this #life, i've been "friending" below my #spirit level. dumbing my ish down for the sake of #female #companionship. #overstandme - it's a rare space that spirits on the same #frequency can find a home in one another. | in this stage. in this space. i welcome complete healthFULL reciprocal #sisterhood. nothing less. nothing. less. #xoDVF #rp #quote 10h

xodvf the earth recognizes people in whom god flowers. there is a sensuousness, a centeredness, a grace to their movement. there is a relaxed gentility of power flowing quietly within and beneath their action. there is a humble assuredness about them, a reverence, a sense of humor and a sense of the sacred entwined. they are the magical people, for whom the earth has longed. | #yogaintheyard @nomadyard | givthx @yogasihnuu @ayescold @thewaterholecommunity @momsorganicmarket + @chefkhepra + @chef_anu + @uber. #nomadyard #namaste #yogadc #dc #xoDVF #quote #changingparadigmsandshit #innadiyard 18h

xodvf the hueman condition cannot be compiled into lists. and i dare say we should not try. we deserve to feel every fear. every success. every indifference. every regret. every unadulterated joy. we deserve the right to selfishly keep these experiences to ourselves. we deserve to be overcome by the liberation of charting our own future and personality, the blatant fear of having no clue about life, and the simple and explicit joy of being hueman - perfect while flawed. we are only obliged to live our lives the way we want to. so, less judging, hand-holding, advice-giving point form abstract mantras and more simply being. doing. living. #xodvf #tokeepandcareityouvegottowaterit #blackrosesinmygarden 1w

xodvf i. there is a guy. (there always is.) some days. he starts to remind me of another guy from another time. and it’s like watching an accident happen in slow-mo. knowing how everything is going to pan out seconds before the crash. except i’m not jumping out of the wreckage this time, even if it means going down in flames together. we could burn bright against the night sky. like shooting stars giving hope to civilisations lightyears away that in the right time and place. and with the right person. love wins. understand the power of an unrushed. an unforced love. #xoDVF #steady #ready #allsmilesinthemeantime #selfie #newvids #sooncome #melanite #knowthyself #aries #blogger #redresonantmoon #auset #changingparadigmsandshit 2w

xodvf r i t u a l. | jan.14.14 marks the 1 year "anniversary" to the #xoDVF "melanin is a blessing" series. the premier video, "k̶i̶n̶k̶y̶ king-ly, my hair that is." was a response to the many who believe the lies sold to them. | as i prepare to relaunch the series...i ask, "how has your hair paradigm changed over the last year?"

  •   lotusprosperous When u change the way you look at something, what u look at will change!! I grew up being very self conscious and disliking my hair because of negative stereotypes, my hAir was short and picky as they would call it in trini, So I grew to not like my hair and didn't even wanna see my hair. covered her up with wigs and weaves my entire teenage life.Many times I would be disgusted in between hairstyles to deal with my own hair because it was literally falling off dry brittle and just weak. I somehow believed that was just the way my hair was and it couldn't grow!! Smdh!!! That was all my uneducated perception tho... Knowledge of self and love of self, overstanding the connection of iself to Ntr has given me greater insight. I love my hair now, it is healthy and thriving, still short, but really soft and manageable. I'm learning everyday how to care for her better. 2w
  •   raquelitaantonia My 8 year old son is growing his hair and he thinks it is so cool that he can place a comb in his hair and have it stay. He is starting to understand how special our hair is 2w
  •   __glenn__coco Over the last year my hair has had some incredible growth despite shedding due to a health condition. Once I told myself ok I have this disease, this disease will not have me my hair responded by not only growing past my expectations but becoming thicker than before. Mind over matter overcomes everything I am what I become and shall be 2w
  •   ddlightfulme Last year I cut off my relaxed hair and begun my natural hair journey in earnest. Once I got the moisture levels in check, I began to enjoy the freedom of the Afro and the ever changing personalities of my curls. My journey is no longer limited by concerns of "messing up my hair"! 2w
  •   fxw12 This pic reminds me of my Mom saying "If they can't use your comb, don't bring em home." Lol 2w
  •   mzshonny1 Over the last year, I struggled and survived transitioning from relaxed to natural. I learned more about my kinky-curly-mind of it's own-hair. I also observed the difference in how people treated me once fully natural. This hair of mine also makes me feel a bit rebellious, in a state of mind that says "im doing my own thing, and I don't need your approval ." 2w

xodvf when "friends" become barriers to your progress. know that they were never friends. when "friends" exist to examine you + judge you + identify your faults to lessen their insecurities. know that they were never friends. | 2014 taught me to once again protect my space. once again. some come to take. to steal. and then get upset when you chop their mvthafvkin hand off. all relationships are built on reciprocity. if you have nothing to offer. fvck off. #straightlikethat #bumbaclat #youvegottowaterit #protectyourmagic #changingparadigmsandshit #xodvf #quote #rp #orishaogun #nuckifyoubuck #goodnight 2w

xodvf there is but one eternal question for which i seek clarity within the hearts of all whom i call lover, "do you see me?" do you see me "as a true living breathing entity, one that is human but made of very fine and moist and magical things as well?" ...if you do not, i must ponder if you possess the gift of sight at all. | #quote #currentread #womenwhorunwiththewolves #clarissapinkolaestes #rp @sugarfreeology #xodvf #mood #melaninonfleek #dvfafterhours 2w
