This blog is for all my sisters in my life and the ones I have yet to meet who know what it’s like to travel to the belly of the beast and still triumph every single day. For all my sisters who are awake in a world where so many are asleep. For all my sisters who are extraordinary just by taking a breath. This is for you.
Roughly 3,000 years ago, the Tribe of Judah was thrown into chaos when the actions of their King and one woman changed history forever. Bathsheba, known as an adulteress, a temptress, a harlot even, caused the death of her husband Uriah, the near overthrow of a King and countless other tragedies that ensued after her affair with King David. Later on, Bathsheba was known as Queen Mother, her son Solomon one of the greatest kings Israel had ever seen next to his father. Her faith in God and perseverance despite her failures and shortcomings changed her and elevated her throughout time. Bathsheba is just one of many stories of women in the bible. Hers and many more women’s stories are looked over for so many reasons time and time again. It’s a common story that all women alike know. Bathsheba, Leah, Rahab, Ruth, Mary Magdalene and countless other women share this common theme.
Failure and Redemption.
I chose Shhheba because I Am Her.
But aren’t we all? I’ve met many of my fellow sisters who have thought themselves past redemption and broken beyond repair. We are all souls here sent down to earth countless times to learn lessons until we are able to ascend. In this short lifetime, I’ve had the extraodinary opportunity of meeting women who have conquered situations, even themselves, that seemed impossible.
I’ve had the extraordinary opportunity to overcome myself.
I have the extraordinary gift of being a medium, a seer, a traveler of the other side and the angelic realm, a mystic and more in this lifetime.
I have the extraordinary opportunity of being a daughter, a sister, a friend, a cousin, a niece, a lover, a confidante and more in this lifetime.
And lastly, I have the extraordinary opportunity of having breath in my lungs today and a shot at tomorrow.
My name is Adriana and I am Shhheba.
