ANOTHER BLACK LADY AND A WHITE LADY TALKING ABOUT RACE| CONSCIOUS CONVERSATIONS EPISODE 4

In today’s Conscious Conversation, I’m joined by Alex Allen, who shares her insights and personal experiences of growing up black in America. Alex, who played a major part in inspiring this series, has done a tremendous amount of healing work, and shares her valuable perspective from the other side of healing as well as her ongoing journey. This conversation put a heavy emphasis on “conscious”, and while we definitely didn’t shy away from the uncomfortable bits, it’s also a tremendously uplifting exchange. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we did creating it.

Coaching Call #428 is out! The topic for this week’s call is: Why Isn’t She Pregnant Yet?

This caller has been trying to get pregnant for over a year. Having a baby is both her biggest desire and biggest need. She knows the process of LOA and how to apply it, so why isn’t she pregnant, yet?

Has something gone wrong because she’s not pregnant, yet? Why don’t our biggest desires manifest straightaway? Is there a reason why our desire for something shows up before it is ready to manifest? What energy and beliefs need to be released so that her baby is ready to be born?

Listen in to find out more!

This call is for you if your biggest desire (and need) hasn’t yet manifested.

Thanks so much for watching this installment of Conscious Conversations. If you’re a person of color or other group whose voice needs to be heard, and you’d like to participate in a public conversation like this, or if you know someone who would be perfect for this format, please contact me through my website, (or just reply to one of my emails).

Otherwise, I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below. Did you enjoy this format? Were there any aha moments? Were you left with more, unanswered questions that you may want us to answer in future conversations? Did you get uncomfortable? If you’re a person of color, do you feel your perspective was represented? What about if you’re white?  Let me know in the comments.

All voices are welcome, but we do ask that you keep it respectful and constructive. In other words, what you have to say is important, just don’t be a dick about it.

Until next time, I’m Melody Fletcher, and thank you for bringing your light to the world.

    Melody and Alex, this was just brilliant and heartbreaking and healing. Alex, thank you for being so brave for sharing your stories. I totally lost track of time while listening to this conversation. Thank you both for sharing your wisdom and insights. This was just captivating.

    I know I’m arriving late on the scene here. I just watched this 4th video of the Concious Conversations, and I just wanted to ad that there is a documentary that should be added to the list of Rescources provided in the links below the video.

    13th, by Ava DuVernay and available on Netflix, is a stunning film about the 13th amendment, systemic racism, and too much more to cover in this message. I truly believe it should be viewed by every American (and IMHO all high school students), as it sheds light on and informs much of what was discussed here between Alex and Melody, as well as the discussions in the other three CC videos.

    These conversations are a great way to open up the much-needed dialog between white and African Americans. Thank you, Alex and Melody, for this discussion!

      Hugs!
