This is atabey(r)Evolution.
I would like to begin by explaining why I’ve have decided on a “lite launch”, of what will unfold into a much greater vision. Atabey(r)Evolution is my newborn baby, and much like the new birth process, I want this expression to reflect and build on the naked, raw and messy aspects of mothering growth. It is my intention to nurture this new born baby to the best of my abilities, while allowing it to teach ME about myself along the way. For quite a while, I was obsessing over the “right” aesthetic to release this content, clinging on to an illusion of what my work should look like for it to be “valid”, rather than simply BEing the expression that is fluid and authentic to my soft and malleable Piscean moon heart. Pero, don’t get it twisted! It’s a “lite launch” for a reason, cause I’m also a Aries Rising/Leo sun, so the extraness and transformative flares are coming soon.
And so, newborn lesson number one: a messy unfoldment serves as a valid truth.
Secondly, I would like to introduce Atabey. Atabey is the Mother Earth Goddess of the Taino peoples, indigenous to Quisqueya, Ayiti, Boriken, Cuba and Xamaica, currently recognized for their colonized names as: Dominican Republic, Haiti, Puerto Rico, and Jamaica. Atabey is the divine spirit of fertility, our wombs, and the waters. She is the great mother of the natural world. She is to whom we owe our sustenance and nourishment. And she is calling us back home.
This call home is one of the many inspirations for this work. I seek help serve in the liberation of Mother Earth, which calls for the death of capitalism and exploitative economies, from which, by default, lies the liberation of the people. By exercising my true expression, through Atabey(r)Evolution, I seek to move us (myself included), through the journey back home, to the circle, to the self; which in essence is the journey towards love and freedom. A mental, emotional, spiritual and physical freedom that is imprisoned in – the terrorist white supremacist regime and settler colonialist – prison industrial complex.
On this journey, my intent is to explore all the ways to decolonization, and (r)Evolutionize our relationship to our higher selves, our loved ones, our medicine and the land. I hope to move away from the shadow of terror and trauma that have and continue to haunt and persecute our peoples for 500+ years, and pierce through to the next phase of our collective evolution, which is the actualization of our infinite and brilliant potential. Through this channel I intend on helping build power from within, by applying the ancestral wisdom that is lying deep within each one of us, seeking to continuously heal and elevate us; in order to create the self, community and Earth sustaining futures of our dreams.
This journey may take on many forms and as I mentioned above, is reflective of the natural and cyclical unfoldment of growth. Through storytelling and critical thought of the cosmos, metaphysics, love, tantra, magic, health, folklore, music, alchemy, jokes, family, poetry, emotional outbursts, and everything throughout and within, we will strengthen and deepen our roots into Atabey and build on the warming flames of the sacred fire of hope – in this era of cold darkness.
