Today’s class will be held by the lovely India (me!). I’m Lalah’s daughter, for those who don’t know, and I serve as a VHD team member. I’m so overjoyed to be sharing my insight on the desert terrain, as I’m currently journeying through one in this season of my life. Being that I am indeed a millennial, 21, I’m fully aware of the significance of acknowledging, recognizing, and knowing how to navigate through your desert early on in life.
Throughout life, we may be called to go to a sacred place within ourselves, with ourselves, to purge, receive, release, make space for new, disconnect, become “you” again, open ourselves up for spiritual growth, enter a new season/ chapter in your life, and so much more!
In this video, I’ll be giving you a fresh perspective on how to successfully recognize and/or overcome your terrain to assist you in reaching your fullest potential. Because ultimately, that’s what it’s all about! :)
“Sometimes, you have to go be alone to come back and be better. Solitude is sacred. ”

Mindfulness: stay mindful of why you’re being called to be in your desert.
Are you recognizing the signs that you’re being lead to the desert?
Are you in the desert now?
Are you staying away from the things that no longer serve you?
What does your environment look and feel like? Is it supporting your terrain?
Are you honoring the process?
What are the things that make you vibrate higher daily? Use these tools to keep you not only sustained, but empowered in the desert.
What are your goals and intentions for this terrain? Keep in mind that your desert has a higher purpose.

Women Supporting Women
As women, we are taking our place in the world more and more daily.
We are rising out of lives and relationships of all sorts that no longer serve us, or that never have, and making space for lives and relationships that will.
Vibrating higher daily, also looks like being a great sister friend and creating the necessary community of high vibrations for each other to feel nurtured, held, and supported in. It also means, taking those high vibrations out into the wider world around you, as medicine and nourishment, through all you contribute to the collective.
As we journey in power and grace, we can help our sister friends do the same. We can become beacons and create powerful support systems, so all in the sisterhood thrive and reach higher potentials.
If you don’t yet have the sisterhood, no worries, you can call it in. That’s exactly what I have done throughout my journey. Sometimes, different levels of growth, requires new sister friends to show up in your life. And you in theirs. As you do the work of vibrating higher daily, and living in your purpose and power, they show up.
Through divine alignment, certain higher friendships will only manifest and materialize once you’ve done ‘the work’ and have developed and unfolded in necessary ways, and are vibrating at a certain frequency to match them.
Doing the work is how the sisterhood assembles itself.
Women showing up and supporting other women is ancestral and tribal.
When women remember who they are, the game changes.

WOMEN SUPPORTING WOMEN
How Women Can Empower Other Women:
When women support you return the favor
Give back to the women who give to you
Don't let the other women you care about carry the friendship alone
Send positive messages to each other
Reinforce self-love and self-care culture
Show up, pitch in, and mean it
Do you have a sisterhood? If not, what actions will you gracefully take to call in and manifest your sisterhood?
What is the vibration of your sisterhood?
How can you show up in a supportive and high vibrational way?
Who can you serve, be a reinforcer for, and support ?
Who in sisterhood inspires you? How is this person standing in her power and being a gracious beacon and sister? How can you support her back?
Who is no longer serving you in sisterhood? How will you set firmer boundaries, heal the disharmony, or detach, release, and move on? What way feels highest vibrational to you?
How will you take deliberate and intentional action towards sisterhood?
How will your sisterhood positively serve the collective world?
"When it comes to actually slowing down and taking the necessary time we need out for self-care, we sometimes need reinforcements to make sure we actually slow down and do so," Lalah Delia tells mbg. "Being a reinforcer for one another in this way could look like helping to create the space and container for self-care time to actualize. Such as: covering the workload or chores for a sister friend, picking up her children and giving her time off, helping to extract her from her rigid routine and life for a while, running her a spa-style bath at her place or yours, scheduling her a massage or other spa treatment, making her a nourishing herbal tonic to slow down and gather herself, and just basically helping her to take a pause from her life, and not allowing her to resume until she is refueled, re-nourished, and feeling like herself again. This is a great way to be in service, as vessels, to the ones we love."
