Black Goddess Magic: Melodies for the Divine Feminine
Black lives matter today, tomorrow, and every day that follows. As we continue the conversation on equality and justice, allow this melodic curation to provide a deeper perspective during the Black Lives Matter movement. Our voices are strong and it’s time to speak up—now more than ever. Speak up against police brutality. Speak up against racial injustice. Speak up against the things that do not ring true to your highest good. However, when we feel like we don’t know what to say, the best option is to listen.
Listen to Black Goddess Magic for a deeper inner-standing of history, the divine feminine, truth, and personal power. Let’s amplify the voices that need to be heard. Listen, share, and vibe.
