I AM FEZEKA.
Please do share with me also 😊. Dope exchange, we learning 🙏🏽
That I truly believe in. I’d also be the first to say I am out of touch more than I would like to with my ancestral foundations. However, stumbling across your website and some of your content, I’ll be making a concerted effort to fix this. Might you know where else to look for similar teaching/learnings?
I am also on my journey of reconnecting to my ancestral roots, we are many and I am also here for support. I'll email you some resources as well as names of other profiles to follow on social media. Would love to hear more insight from you regarding your journey as you embark, Mvelo 😊. And welcome, home mu(Ntu) omdala.
I think it all begins with a solid foundation. Just like a tree cannot stand without its roots, so must we go back to our roots to remember who we are. Only then can we navigate forward with purpose to restore & reclaim that which is lost.
@Fezeka Mkhabela I fear the idea of reclaiming what is lost might be the reason many do not take the steps to reroot themselves. It leans on the idea of scarcity where we should be thinking in abundance. True empowerment takes time and breaking away from the idea that what needs to be claimed as our own is held somewhere by others, is essential in the journey.
@Mvelo Hlophe I appreciate your thought provoking points. Maybe I should clarify and be more specific. I have said this before that there is no African emancipation or African economic expansion without African ancestral healing. I say this because when we reclaim our ancestral teachings on values, morals, family, wealth creation & spiritual practice it informs how we rebuild our own structures and systems in a modern world. Systems that will benefit us and provide African solutions to African problems. Currently we look to colonised systems to teach us, inform us and to govern us, no wonder we are so lost as a nation. Without going to back rediscover who we once were, what knowledge will act as a foundation for our empowerment?
