Justice - What Is Worth Fighting For? Black History Month Series 3

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.” -Frederick Douglass (Speech on the twenty-fourth anniversary of emancipation in Washington. D.C.)


Justice: the maintenance or administration of what is just especially by the impartial adjustment of conflicting claims or the assignment of merited rewards or punishments (Merriam Webster)

The date of this insert is February 24, 2019 and what a week this has been. During Black History Month, you hope to not be rigged with injustices and judgement, but compassion and love. At the height of this week, was the Jussie Smollet allegations and the indictment of R. Kelly. 

Public Service Announcement: I am not choosing a side, I am just watching the news as the facts unfold.

Part 3 of this series, focuses on Justice and is asking you to evaluate what is justice and how has it played a part in your life.

The tarot is designed for you to intuitively reach deep inside to find your soul purpose. Each week for the month of February, a theme has been chosen and I invited you to find a quiet space, and meditate with the tarot cards represented by the weekly theme.

Card 1: Tower –What injustices have affected the foundation of your Tower? This card represents tearing the old, unsteady ground to rebuild a new, stronger base. The experience is intense, the energy and vibrations are real, and you will come face to face with your ego. This experience is something you must go through; a healthy destruction symbolizing the removal of what is no longer for you. The Tower is here to remind you that through destruction comes creation. Let’s create something powerful!

Card 2: Judgement – do you choose to place judgement on yourself or others? As a card of self- reflection, you are being invited to take the time out to redirect your thoughts by not jumping to conclusions. Keep with a clear mind. Evaluate life decisions that you have made or are about to make and take heed to your inner calling by being true to yourself. You have the information in front of you. Use this process to transform self judgement, or judging of another, into compassion and understanding.

Card 3: Justice - What is fair and true at this moment in your life? This card wants you to be available to make decisions in your life by bringing in balance and alignment. Do right by yourself and by others, acknowledge when you’ve wronged another and be the one to change it. Learn the lessons in this game of life and know that whatever you go through is meant to teach you something powerful.


Crystal: Lapis Lazuli is a gemstone that is deep blue in color. The healing properties of this crystal allows self-expression, brings awareness of your spiritual purpose to the light and reveals inner truths. 


Meditation: Come to a comfortable seat. You can sit in a chair with your feet grounded into the earth or lie down. Close your eyes and take a deep breath in and breathe out the tension in your body. Allow your breathing to fall into its own natural rhythm. Invite in the color blue – tapping into your throat chakra and imagine speaking your truth with no inhibitions. This blue color gives you the strength to express yourself with confidence. Sit with this feeling, imagining a cool breeze floating towards you from the deep blue ocean... see the faint color of blue painted across sky accompanied by white fluffy clouds... the warmth of the sun... now inhale deeply and exhale feeling your throat release. Silently repeat the affirmations: "I am able to speak my truth with ease", "I am balanced in speaking and listening."
