You gotta do the right thing, here...

...One hand is always fighting the other hand, and the left hand is kicking much ass. I mean, it looks like the right hand, Love, is finished. But hold on, stop the presses, the right hand is coming back. Yeah, he got the left hand on the ropes, now, that’s right. Ooh, it’s a devastating right and Hate is hurt, he’s down. Left-Hand Hate KO’ed by Love.
— -Radio Raheem {Do The Right Thing}

I don’t know what you were doing in 1989…

But I for one was watching people of color on the big screen in a way I’d never been able to see before.

Imagine growing up with TV shows, radio, media, publications, school, etc all showing you a very specific ideal of beauty, art, love, and success…

An “ideal” that was 100% impossible for you to ever achieve.

Because you looked nothing like the people it showcased and revered.

This made portrayals like Do The Right Thing by Spike Lee so life changing for little Black and Brown kids around the world.

We got to see people who looked like us, moved like us, had family scenarios like us…

All on the big screen.

Reflecting something back to us that we often didn’t see up until then:

That we, too, deserved a seat at the table.

Spike Lee won his first Oscar last night.

I didn’t watch the show {I rarely do}, but I obviously heard about Spike. And I got to see how he jumped into Samuel L.’s arms after winning.

I felt like it was me jumping into Samuel L.’s arms!

I know a lot of people felt that way.

Suffice to say, this is a win that has been a very long time coming.

And it matters for everyone, not just BIPOC.

Everyone.

Why? I’ll tell ya:

Because when we begin shifting the overarching idea of what art is, of what bodies can look like, of who can be a perennial success with their gifts…

We raise the vibration of our planet together.

And we make it safe for ALL people to be in their own skin.

I mean...

Have you ever felt you like you just didn’t belong?

Now, amplify that by generations of ancestors who were uprooted, enslaved, tortured, stolen, vilified, appropriated, and dismissed.

What do you think that legacy would that do inside of your body?

Now, on the flip side, imagine that it was your ancestors who played a part in this atrocity.

What do you think that would do inside of your body?

This is not about color or lack of color.

It’s about healing the systemic traumas {racialized and sexualized} in our pain bodies.

Together.

That’s where the inaugural April issue of my upcoming program, Body of Work, will be blowing the roof off the stadium.

It will show you how to curate a sovereign experience within your body, one where you understand how to heal ancestral lineage and have full agency over your own ecological thriving.

This is about calming your nervous system in ways that get you out of the constant fight or flight distress that has become the norm for modern day Creators everywhere.

There’s a shit ton of nonsense being sold as Truth, about how hustle is the only path to impact and success.

Yes, you gotta work.

But you need to do it in a way that integrates your primal body with your creative process…

So that you can drop into a space of belonging, pleasure, and alignment within your own body on every level.

From the physical body to the emotional body and everything in between.

And?

This is also how you become 100% free in your creative expression.

So, do the right thing here {I had to}...

And when I send out the invitation for the presale, scoop it up post haste.

AKA: Don’t sleep on the One Thing that is going to shift Everything.

Keep your eyes peeled.

Invitations will be sent out soon.

Loving you,

N
