Trusting the Process of Practice

Find deeper self-acceptance and self-love while building the capacity to hold whatever challenges arise.

I’m the founder of the Right Within Experience where we herald and celebrate the power of reclamation, the spirit of Sankofa, an Adinkra symbol, and Akan word from Ghana that essentially means go back and get it. Our time together is to support you in reclaiming the disparate pieces of yourself, calling yourself back to yourself, so that you can have the life of clarity, calm, and well-being that you desire. Today we are going to talk about Emani which is a Swahili word that means faith. 

Trust the Process

We are going to take everything that we have done and put it together in a wonderful stew called “Trust The Process.” You know that you can sit, you can stay on the spot, that you are all you need, and you are enough. You know that you have a purpose, that your purpose may change over time, and that there are many reasons why we do things. Finally we take all of that together and add faith. Faith is putting one foot in front of the other, believing and trusting that in so doing, you will have benefit.
