💌Not sure if I've ever intoduced myself | My name is Nefertiti 💛 i love hard. i love pure, and in the rawest form; this can overwhelm or make those dizzy who aren't capable of my dosage. i am the lover all of my past lovers currently reminisce about.. which has been in NO way a compliment to always be "the one who got away," 'cause during these exchanges, at times i lost myself. my memories of them are not as positive as theirs of me. so to heal, i write. not to forget them, not for them to see. but for ME. and in the end i learned to protect my heart. now i am well aware that my Scorpio Sun ♏🌞 and my Leo rising ♌⬆ frightens the weakest of men, and excites the strongest of Kings.
you may not understand how "real" or strong you are, until you meet or come across a plethora of individuals who are not. this will both humble and excite you to know that your vessel is special on this Earth and that you need to embrace this quality & share it. being loving and having heightened sensitivity is not a flaw.. never let anyone make you think this, because people who disrespect such beautiful qualities are hurt.. & this has NOTHING to do with you.
you can tell that i believe in karma by the way that i treat you. with every personal relationship i have ever had; be it with a lover, friend or family- i can honestly say that i try. i give my all. i respect you. and i'm always honest with my intentions. i want others to do the same. even if their "losing" me had to be the way that this was taught. naw i ain't perfect, and there may be a relationship or 2 where when i ended things i could have handled it better, of course. living & learning.
today, i am surrounded by light beings who are patient with me, who have learned to understand me. i am blessed with friends + family + a lover who protect my heart. and appreciate + love everything about me, even my "flaws". therefore my long road of pain was worth it. ase. ☺ #signedbynef 👑 #HoodooBoo 💘 #hoodoohealer 🌹 . . 👕: authentic dashiki from @homeofblkbooks59 🎯
💌 It isn't just called "the MOTHERland" for no reason 🌍 all these bitches is our sons 😹 lmao 🌾👀🌾 Nah but great read... #Regram: @the.kraal The people that rewrote history wanted us to believe that Africa was a land of savages. No one can deny that before coming into contact with the continent, European civilization was either barbaric or non-existent. This is not emotions speaking. Africa is the source of everything. In today’s context, Africans really need to go back to an understanding of who they were before their history was disrupted. But that knowledge of greatness is already somewhere in your DNA. All we do here is remind you. “The Past is the Future” ✨ . . During his visit to Mali from 1352 to 1353, Ibn Battuta, Moroccan scholar, noted: “Amongst their good qualities is the small amount of injustice among them, for of all people they are the furthest from it. Among their qualities, there is also the prevalence of peace in their country. The traveler is not afraid in it, nor is he who lives there…” . Interpret it as you wish, but this quote alone tells us a lot about how Africans organized themselves and what it was like to live in that region. . At that time, trade was the basis of the empire’s economic power. Gold, present in abundance, was exchanged for wool, copper, and beads with merchants from North Africa. Mali also imported blades, horses, and silk from Egypt. Cities with which Mali traded included Kano (in present-day Nigeria), Tripoli, and Cairo as well as other trading centers within the region. Mali had diplomatic relations with various states (including the kingdom of Portugal) with which they exchanged embassies and emissaries. Now, go call Africa primitive again…. 🌍
💫💫💫 What up doe #MercuryRetrograde (November 16 - December 6) 💫💫💫 It is written in the stars for all of us to chill the FUCK out. #MercuryRX happens a few times a year (3 in total this year) and I think I have said before that we tend to think only negatively when it happens.. but positives come from it as well! ❤ Have no idea what I'm talking about? Let me explain: . . With Mercury Retrograde.. sometimes the other planets appear to be traveling backward through the zodiac; this is an illusion. We call this illusion retrograde motion. Mercury's retrograde periods can cause our plans to go.. just fucking weird! The planets are swinging around at all times, and their movements affect us all in DIFFERENT ways. All planets go retrograde, but Mercury’s journey seems to impact people much more than any other.
What happens when Mercury goes retrograde? There are communication breakdowns between you and others, there are logistical challenges, technological difficulties, also it isn't a good time to start anything new.. You may feel much more irritable and frustrated and things just don’t seem to go how you want them to.
BUT turning this into a positive: this is a good time to become one w| yourself ☺ Now, more than ever, the time is great to look at things with clearer eyes. Fresh perspectives are revealed. We often have major breakthroughs — intellectual, emotional or spiritual during this time. This is a GREAT time to reflect, reorganize, relax and/or recalibrate. Also use this time to practice forgiveness.. use this time to process what's unresolved so you can let it go.
Just “go with the flow” is the best way to cope. When you fight Mercury retrograde, that’s when life gets really ugly LOL take time, go slowly, be careful, don’t freak yourself out by expecting to be super productive or perfect right now. Be good to yourself & the people around you, now more than ever! ♻ Hope this helps!
STONES TO AID YOU DURING THIS TIME.. for protection & grounding: Black tourmaline, Hematite, Smoky Quartz. For communication: Amazonite, Blue Lace Agate, Aquamarine. For memory & mental focus: Fluorite or Emerald 💎. #HoodooBoo#hoodoohealer
Motivating self while slangin' candles in the lab big fella 😹🕯💫 | Had quite some experiences these past couple days. It's interesting to me how condescending, negative and overcritical a lot of people in this "Spiritual" community are. They have transitioned from religion that is already judgmental as it is, but then create these personas for themselves (mostly only online 😒) rooted in the negative sense of their egos. They look down on some of us who have not been practicing as long, or who may not have as many followers and constantly post negativity about the way we practice or choose to promote OUR healing methods. Why? If you out here REALLY tryna HEAL, why you trippen? ESPECIALLY if those you judging are REALLY not fraudin and are FOR the people. What really is YOUR motive?
Some if these high and mighty ass "lightworkers" are livid that there are Queens and Kings from the hoods of Amerikkka SPEAKING to the hood and vibing with the hood on a spiritual level.. WHY? We really need that shit more than anybody because of the shit we see EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Many of us are traumatized. Many of us have literal PTSD and need to know there is an alternative method to HEALING our spirits other than this imaginary white Jesus. Yeah I said it.
i want y'all to keep doing yall, cause it's working for you.. and I do wish you well. But dont look down on us for the different approach and moves we are making working for us. Your light is dimming in the process. "Peace." 💌 #HoodooBoo#hoodoohealer | LINK IN BIO to get your candles (new addition added) or rose water fix Family 🌹🕯 . .

💫💫💫FIXED CONJURE CANDLES💫💫💫 A "fixed" or "conjure" candle is a candle that has added herbs + oils and/or minerals that have been charged with intention and/or prayer by self or by their practitioner. Each candle has a different need or manifestation, and works according to your wants or needs, depending on what it is you're looking to cultivate into your life (i.e., self-love, prosperity, good health, protection, healing, success, etc). . . Candle Magick has been used for hundreds of years to gain results. Although not as steady as Rootwork (which is more costly and a lengthier service), Candle Magick is great to utilize when looking to see some action at a somewhat faster pace.
Some practitioners, myself included - personally love to "fix" candles FOR clients and have them set their own lights, which gives YOU the power to manifest your OWN intentions and your own needs - cause you ARE the POWER 🕯💛 (*Disclaimer: if you set lights for clients, this is not knocking your work). . . It is a beautiful thing to work with Spirit, and I am honored that I am trusted by clients to aid in their journeys + manifestations 🕯💫 Your candle can be lighted on the day that corresponds with the intention that you are seeking. Each day is ruled by a planet and the energy of that planet can be used to help your manifestation flourish. While lighting your candle, speak to the Universe or to Spirit(s), and request for your manifestation to be brought forth. Spirit should be spoken to daily with candle steady burning so that the workings are being SPELLed and brought forth.

Gentle Reminder 💌 #Regram@neweradetroit: (SWIPE 👈🏾) Seasonal Depression with #NEDWellnessWednesday 🌬❄ | As it gets colder & colder, it's important to ask: How does Winter make YOU feel? 🤔 Did you know that #SeasonalDepression is real af? and is most damaging to those of Afrikan descent? 🌾👀🌾 . . Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) effects changes in our mood, energy, appetite, weight and sleep. Winter SAD is tied to sensitivity to light deficiency. 10 million people in the US experience severe cases of SAD, while 10 to 20 percent suffer from milder cases. Unfortunately, women are 4X more likely to develop SAD compared to men (if you let me tell it, this is simply due to us being a bit more tapped into our emotions and feelings). . . Lack of sunlight during the Winter months is believed to be the cause of SAD. Sunlight is an activator + nutrient for melanated people and it has an effect on the brain's chemicals. #Serotonin is a chemical nerve that cells create. The #serotonintransporter (SERT) is a protein in humans that carries serotonin in the brain. As the seasons change, the brain tries to adjust; The SERT carries serotonin back into the nerve sells where it is not active: so the higher the SERT activity = the lower the activity of serotonin. While sunlight usually keeps this setting at a natural wave - as the nights grow longer, the SERT levels increase, resulting in diminishing active serotonin levels.
Symptoms for SAD: irritability, low energy, difficulty concentrating, fatigue, weight gain, and feeling an increased need for solitude, sleep + eating. Some invest in aromatherapy. Essential oils can influence area of brain responsible for controlling moods + body's internal clock. Light therapy (with a special light therapy box that causes brain chemicals to change for the better. Reasearch before trying), or many dip tf OUT on vacation in a warmer climate. Medication is a go-to for some (least fave option), psychotherapy for treatment, dawn simulators & exercise!
Do research on SAD family & take notice of how you're feeling during the Fall & especially Winter months. Dont sweep your feelings under the rug, they are valid and should be addressed 💛
Completion. The last WEEK has been quite irratic and overwhelming, but worth it. I am speaking from Self and to those who can relate 💌. Keep in mind that life is NEVER easy. Even if you have millions of 💰, SOMETHING is always not aligned with what YOU feel like would make your life "perfect." Therefore - breathe easy. Even in the midst of chaos - breathe. Be present. Be patient. Be mindful. Realize that life is going to go on whether youre upset or whether youre ecstatic, whether youre angry or elated. So the added stress is only hurting you. Take a look at how far you've come; give yourself credit! & it's absolutely okay to assess what needs to be done strategically, so that you can move forward on your journey.
I'M READY, BABY. 😜😏. | Sure it's only November, but 2018 of the Gregorian calendar year has been so RUFFFFFF that I'm already planning and setting shit up for year 3 (2+0+1+9= 3). . . In Numerology, the number 3 is associated with achivement of goals, creativity, growth, ABUNDANCE, expression, and communication. 3 is the cementing factor of 1+2 and goes through to 4 (structure, foundation, stability) to bring about what's desired and envisioned. . . You setting yourself up some 2019 goals?? Whether physical, mental or spiritual? If so, what are they? 🙌🏾🤗 #HoodooBoo#hoodoohealer

Byeeeee 😚👋🏿👋🏿👋🏿👋🏿👋🏿 'cause NOPE. Only love & light? That is unrealistic. My page and posts represent BALANCE. I want to touch on ALL aspects of our journeys/lives, which where I'm from = both bad and good, the beautiful and the ugly. In order to HEAL, we gotta touch on ALL OF IT to be able to move forward in growth. How we gonna heal the hood talkin' about cupcakes and unicorns, when the cupcakes are GMO and the unicorns are starving?
Also - I may be a little more uncut or raw than your average practitioner when it comes to Blacktivism, but peep: if you are not BLACK and I make a post in alignment about Black issues and/or Black empowerment, and you are offended, I have no sympathy. It is NOT my fault that majority of you choose to not understand or turn a blind eye to the oppression that my people face and that the truth is unbearable for you to admit or accept. You can either learn some shit from PEOPLE WHO GO THROUGH THIS EVERYDAY or move along. I will have no problem dragging you if you choose to disrespect myself or anyone in the comments if I do happen to see it. Your attempts to silence us while we are in our spaces discussing our issues is WEIRD AF and yet another example of A FORM OF OPPRESSION. It is not hard to grasp that although you may not be your ancestors and you may not have physically done what yours did to mine - but as a white person present day, you are in the position you are BECAUSE of said history. You say you aren't racist? Then talk to your fellow white friends because their asses be the one's in my comments wailing about how "but blacks kill blacks too!!" and "i have black friends! i am doing my part!!" But I'm trippen?
