Moment of Silence to give gratitude to all the Asian folks in your life!
I am constantly working on myself. Breaking harmful patterns both generational and personal. Loving my own intersections and ways of being as well as others. These liberation for all posts are a glimpse into our community; praising our authentic selves, honouring our ways of being and uniting to remedy our struggles.
We at Authentic Creations believe liberation is ONLY available for all or none. So we want to highlight our intersectional community. Please know discomfort may arise. Notice where and how it is in your body and release it! Consider exploring links where discomfort originated in an attempt to break the cycle, break the system.
A great way to stay on track with your self growth is by making Moonly Intentions. Usually creating these intentions on the New Moon and reflecting upon them as the Moon waxes and wanes. I make work intentions as well as personal. My personal intentions are have playful + spiritual baths, explore the town i live in, and continue shifting my relationship to rest.
I am not sure how to actually organize all of this. We are so valuable and intricate. I want everyone to feel validation and praise from this listing.

A resurrgence of violence towards Asians is apparent since the origination of coronavirus in China. Much of this violence and discrimination is happening to Asian elders and family members during Lunar New Year. If you are deeply concerned with the targeting of Chinatown seniors and businesses, you can help keep them safe. Because we know, community safety starts with us – not the police. If you are in the “Oakland, Caifornia” area consider taking security shifts.
