Sometimes you have to be assertive with spirit. Demanding to a certain degree. Fetch things with might.

It's not a terrible thing if the intention is still pure.

Sometimes you really do have to fight, in a real way, for your things.

Soft doesn't always get the work done.
And it's ok.
It's ok not to be soft at times.
It's ok to know that you deserve more. And to be hard for your more.
It's ok for you to shout if you feel you are not being heard. Sometimes you have to shout. And be thunder. To be a strong gust of wind that knocks things over.

The universe gets these things.
It's the good war.

The healing of Black families and all that is tied to black families is in the details. We receive stories from our elders about how certain things connect, but there are crucial details that are left out of these stories.
It's in the details that we will understand conflicts, feuds and curses. It's in these details that we see who or WHAT the real enemy is. Sometime it's not just the person/spirit who is the enemy but also the circumstance they were in.
This is not an excuse, but all facts count in making sense of things.

We do all kinds of rituals to fix things, but we will be doing that forever if we don't know the details.

Spirit's artistic nature is not just there to be pretty and comforting, it's also an intelligent protective function. The encoding of messages in symbols, riddles and metaphors allows for confidentiality. This secrecy was one of its objectives in ancient times too.
When a divine worker relays a message in this way, it's for you to get enough pieces to put together for yourself , without being fully exposed. It's not really a choice, this is how amadlozi tend to speak and it is generally spirit's language. (We're not trying to be deep lol)
The confidentiality can also happen through the divine worker's amnesia when they are out of their trance. Other times one can give you a crystal clear message but still not have the full context or background - only you would have it.

It's quite a challenge to sit with the task of helping someone, while the painful memories you still hold around them also sit right next to you. Spirit has the audacity to humble you in that way;
making you reach a level of forgiveness you were not interested in going that deep for.
Our capacity to forgive is bigger than we may realise. Most times we refuse to realise this and believe that our hearts can only open so much.

Don't make healing your life long story. Make space for the shift from healing to becoming.

You're not here to only heal. You're here to become. Healing is only a part of the process to that becoming.

Don't get comfortable with only being a wound. You were not created broken.
More than anything, healing is an inconvenient necessity resulting from circumstances we were dealt with.

Some of these circumstances were not our fault and were beyond our control.

Healing was never the original purpose.
Becoming was and still is.
Don't lose focus and get attached to healing.

Allow yourself to become.

You can persuade amadlozi wakho. You can teach them, you can lead them and you too can guide them in as much as they guide you. You are well within your rights to exercise a level of control in this relationship.
We live in a time that was different to theirs so there are some instances where it is on YOU to advise and guide them so that you can all work in harmony. You have experiences and thoughts, you're not a robot.
The relationship doesn't have to be a dictation where you nod to every single thing. You have life experience futhi umdala so nawe ngesinye isikhathi ungabafundisa.

But remember, you're still an independent spirt. Not everything that you feel, think and dream about is messages from your guides. It can also be your own spirit's wants and needs.
Alot of what you reject or struggle to follow through with is stuff that your spirt actually requires and that's why you feel conflict.
It's not always that the guides are punishing you, the truth is that most times you are just moving against your own current.
