It’s pretty hard to review theatre during a global pandemic of the corona virus!
However, what about re-viewing reality.
Welcome to my 'In Theatre' Audio Healing Sessions, where we re-hear and talk about issues pertaining to our realities.
Because: “All the Worlds a Stage” – he says.
At its foundation Sharla Reviews aims to be part of a collective - online;
To create a space from a unique… (not really unique - but seldom heard) perspective.
As his-story is loud and white!
I decided to review Theatre and Films, as they are great platforms that imitate a zoomed in (microcosmic) story of our zoomed out (macrocosmic) reality.
And so...the birth of Sharla Reviews happened.
Over the last few months though – our world has felt very much like a Film or a Theatre production – and the majority of us are zoomed in on our devices;
the moment that is Corona.
I’ll actually go as far as saying that now, more than ever we all are very much reliant on hardware technology ( and not spiritual technology) to communicate.
What was once a Physical world – has just entered into a Technological one – and although we differ in opinion on whether we want to
or even rewind
the beast that is the Internet… It is play-ing
whether we like it or not!
Check out my film review of Love and Basketball and how I differentiate between Play-ing and Sports.
And so… let us review or even re-hear our current reality starting (of course) with the title.
And there is a power, despite the chaos
Given by the crown chakra (the grand queen of all chakra’s)
also known as the Corona to improve ourselves even when our idea of normailty has been paused!
Let us begin…
To not just rely on his-story,
but in addition,
self-isolate our own narrative and begin to heal!
Because that is the only way we can survive… this virus.
Healing Session A
During the lockdown - one of the things that we probably discovered is the need for routine.
Without it – everything around us (including people) can become equally as chaotic as this virus.
And whist I’m not big on control - there is a routine and discipline we owe ourselves before we offer it to…
Healing Session B
Once our routine is in place – a space to hear opens…
I’m now 21 months loc’d now.
And the locs are symbolic of my conscious growth and spiritual journey!
I’m learning so much about myself – and I’m always shocked about how much I don’t know and still need to discover!
It’s a conscious journey because my whole belief system has changed, and I am constantly un-loc’ing new things.
On the journey one step I’ve learnt is my own need to be heard…
No surprise then, that in my synchronized existence with the universe, that I came across this Therapy for Black Girls
And Black and Girls because
White and Male
Has made my voice a whisper.
As we turn up the sound
It is quite profound
That the healing starts
a great listener!
And as I listened, in particular to these two sessions:
Session 132: Reimagining Single Life with Dr. Jessica D. Moorman
Session 134: The Impact of Racial Trauma with Dr. Candice Nicole Hargons
This podcast specifically gives space to Black Women's realities. As some of my hardest issues to work on have been racial trauma and finding validity in singleness and being my own hero(ine).
Check out my review of Black Lightning and how alongside the protection from our melanin, electromagnetics are real and are our God given super power!
Therapy for Black Girls is hosted by Dr. Joy Harden Bradford confirms common issues faced by the duality of being Black and Female; guiding us to know that our experiences are very much a reality and offers, something quite unique to other podcasts in the fact that Dr Joy Harden Bradford always has another guest (usually a Black Female doctor) that she has a coversation with.
Because: "Where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I with them" He says
These Black Women doctors offer therapy just by uniting. Healing Through conversation, piecing together our her-story and inviting us to be architects of our own future through the sound of their voice.
And I heard my existence being -
Birthed through divine femininity
Validated with intellect and
Celebrated by unity!
Because even though my voice is a whisper, I’m not ever really in self isolation.
Because accumulated whispers make a thunderous ROAR!
