And has been for centuries. You may have noticed a collapse in the man-made systems, structures, industries and institutions of our time. You may know that the history that we were fed in school was written by a certain demographic that kept the hierarchy and pathology of power homogenous and strong. The history of medicine and healthcare is the same. It was written, created and proliferated by the same men who made sure that profit won over people. And continues to. They turned the art of medicine into the business of healthcare. No one gets paid with a healthy populace.
So this patriarchal hierarchy, we all know the names before and now, with their innovations and progress in every possible industry from education to oil to healthcare created magic at the mercy of voiceless and scared and colonized our people, keeping so many oppressed and subjugated.
It continues today with the current landscape that exists with public health in the U.S and this virus. We’ve been conditioned to depend and submit to the external world of drugs, vaccines, ‘the expert’, the healthcare system to save us all. They’ve convinced us that we’re weak, susceptible, vulnerable at every breath and unable to heal without influence from the ones in ‘authority’.
This is the byproduct of a colonial capitalist patriarchy and paradigm. Just like the rest of the institutions that are crumbling all around us, healthcare appears to be the last one to fall.
It may seem scary to so many. What will we do when “papa government” and “mother medicine” aren’t around to tell us how to be healthy with their golden treatments and solutions.
The awe is in the end result. There is an inevitable shift in the paradigm. That’s why there is a select few grasping so tightly to the reigns of the past. It’s going to break. It’s going to fall. Healthcare and medicine as we know it now will be no longer and our souls will not allow anything but the truth to shine through.
The knowing within all of us has the answers. We know that this collapse is necessary to move forward and beyond. The Phoenix rises from the ashes. We must break down all the external variables and influences to realize the power, wisdom, strength and resilience we have as our birthright. This is the good trouble we’re going through to understand that we’re healthy and healed and whole the moment we come into this world and maintain that until our last breath, though the colonial capitalist patriarchy would have us believe otherwise.
You are safe. You are protected. You are free. You are healthy. You are healed. You are whole. The stories are changing to support these truths. The stories have to come from us, from our deep knowing and translate out into the world.
And no amount of censorship will keep these truths from emerging in our human experience. This I know for certain.
