Lessons of Dandelions

Lessons of Dandelions

And that’s what they do – they derail your self-worth on purpose so that all your many accomplishments become overshadowed by the idea that you’re a nuisance to their perfect order.

They mark your resilience as irritating.

Your adaptability and persistence as annoying. They cut your voice at the stem and demand your silence. Pump you full of poisonous chemicals. Erase your story and what it took you to get here.

Dandelions are the plant of the Witches, and hardly anyone remembers.

They are the plant of the Women – all women – who have ever had to fight their corner just to exist. Who are chased and harmed for simply being. Who are ripped out by the roots for daring to shine brightly or laugh loudly.

Who others see their shine and dump concrete ontop of them to try and ruin their worth.

But we are powerhouses of medicine, my friends. We will form cracks in your concrete lines and tear through your conditioning.

Poke holes in your patriarchy and with a smile on our face declare:

Yes we are the wyrd wild old weeds.

And we cannot be contained.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
