Oh hey, well look it that, it's Wednesday, so that means it's time for Cuties' #WordsoftheWeek again! #TwoSpirit
Two-Spirit: refers to a person who has both a masculine and a feminine spirit, and is used by some Native American people to describe their gender and/or spiritual identity. As an umbrella term it may encompass a wide variety of gender variance, including people who might be described in Western culture as non-binary, transgender, gender queer, or who have multiple gender identities. The term is a translation of the Anishinaabemowin term niizh manidoowag, two spirits.
Note: If you are not Native American/a First Nations member, the term is not yours to adopt.

#RepostSave@2spirit_medicine_souljah with @repostsaveapp ・・・ I’ve been doing so much inner-work, man! It’s really easy to blame others and see the world as damaged, but once you realize that it’s all a reflection of something within you, you take your power back. You can’t control what’s out there, but you can cease the war within.
I want to send a big shout out to all my friends whom are doing the work; looking in the mirror; slaying your demons; sitting with grief, pain, fear, loneliness; feeding your Self Love all the while; and then bringing that newfound peace and Love into this world. It’s a revolution that starts on the inside, and we are taking over the world.
I see you shining your Light, and I am honored to be on this journey with you all. 💙🙏🏽
Daily Draw - Seven of Gardens (Pentacles) If you are feeling like you are stood at crossroad not knowing whether to turn left or right, whether to carry on moving forward, or even turn around completely and go back the way you came, then it is time to do a bit of an evaluation of your current situation and consider seriously as to where you are and where you would like to go. Check your progress to date, have you done the things that you set out to do? Have you met some of the goals you had in mind before starting on this particular journey? If not then what will be your new strategy? It doesn’t matter how many times your plans change, what’s important is that you are constantly checking in with your progress and reevaluating when needed. Don’t be too hard on yourself either, remember that you are already seeing the results from your endeavours and the benefits are having a positive impact on your life. Take a break if needed and use the time for some self reflection and planning. Life is all about endless possibilities and new opportunities, so what if it means tearing up the to do lists and action plans and starting afresh! Enjoy a little downtime to appreciate your successes so far, you will know when you are ready to continue on.
