As soon as this week’s Project Joy theme, “Arise” emerged for our Healing, I started hearing bits of Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise” running through my brain (I’ve included it below).
Reading it again in its entirety, I love the fighting spirit that it has and the magic and strength she claims as her right.
As a child, this woman had a mix of both terrible and wonderfully loving and strong adults in her life. She was able to see the difference, find her truth and forge her own unique path, setting an inspiring example and encouraging others to do the same.
This week’s addition to our Project Joy Healing Library aspires to do the same – to encourage you to grow your awareness of who you are, separate truth from fiction and allow new and excellent patterns and habits to emerge.
We bring beautiful reiki healing in to help clear old habits, patterns and beliefs – reiki helps to sweep that old, stale energy away.
What remains is vibrant, healthy, glowing you – ready to speak your truth and honor your passions. Feeling calm, strong, healthy – knowing and trusting your self and your inner wisdom.
You are easily able to create new healthy patterns and habits.
These new patterns and habits support and lift you to new heights.
You can listen to this once, or as many times and as frequently as you’d like. The healing audio is infused with reiki that flows to you, every time you listen, whenever you listen, wherever you are in the world.
Arise, dear lady.

Still I Rise ~ Maya Angelou, 1928 – 2014
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
P.S. Wondering how Project Joy works?
Every week we have a new theme that supports us feeling our best, living, working and creating as our authentic, joyful selves. Then we mix it all up with reiki healing, which helps to supercharge these themes, helping us to feel the shifts physically, mentally and energetically, so we can integrate them more fully into our days. The goal with the weekly healings are to encourage and support us in living fully and freely, with ease and joy, sharing our unique gifts with the world. Making greater impact with our lives, week by week.
