“We have been Nesu and Nesa (Kings and Queens) for thousands of years! Greatness is in our DNA! Genius runs through our veins! This pic is exactly how I feel! Keep shinin’ powerful YOU!! 😘😘👑 👑🌟🌟” — Alicia Keys
We can’t all be steeped in the sands of Egypt, but Alicia’s post takes us along for the ride and reminds us of our highest possibilities.
Alicia’s family trip to the desert — complete with wanderings through time-old pyramids — is a lot more than just an adventure: it was a pilgrimage prompt for any follower looking to reconnect with their own history, lineage, and power.
Claiming our genius is just the first step towards shining our light in the world. Alicia’s journey encourages us to hone into our past to find healing, truth, and reclamation at every turn.
By looking to our past and the work of those before us, we can better understand the unlimited power and untapped potential of ourselves and those around us.
It doesn’t take a trip to Egypt to have this revelation (But tag us if you go!). Just remember to honor your history, trust in your process, and recognize the greatness within you!
