Indus Valley Civilization: A Woman's Worth In Society Revisited










Indus Valley Civilization "The Cradle of Civilization"
By Emily Imani Yamenita

 

Our Ancient societies revered the Goddess.  Woman was clearly respected not only for her ability to give life, but her ability to think and act for the better good of her world. If nothing else the artwork tells the story as no book can. If you seek into yourself you will remember and understand. For any person who says a woman power is simply her vagina I beg to differ. The true gift a woman gives her man..is her mind. A woman can share with her third eye what her man cannot see. Overtime even the most brute warrior or King relies on her steady stream of insight into the most difficult situations, balancing ethics with love and consideration.
 It is not sex in the end that keeps a man in love, but the mind.
 "As is Above So is Below" in the femiNINEbody lies both pleasure and wisdom-

  THE INDUS VALLEY STANDS IN OURSTORY AS
One of the earliest civilizations. As maps and boundaries drawn in dirt with blood the mysteries of "history" ( a mass flooding or whatever secret buried so much) it has become increasingly difficult to source out information that clearly stated the Indus Valley was an African civilization. It seems the obvious can quickly be distorted and hidden primarily because the study of the migration of mankind is cloaked in a variety of conflicting details. However ...lets us take a look at the source of the Dravidian Language.....
 
Dravidian language is reformed primitive African Language, the words can be traced in Cameroon. Perhaps Homo Sepians had developed communication skill into language, “Cameroonians speak Dravidian language(Youtube).

.“Lost Feather - Black Chinese - The first Shang Dynasty was the Shang-Li (Black Shang) it was ruled by the LI-Qiang “Black Qiang” founded by Dravidian and Manding speakers”. Black Chinese Dynasties – A recent International study carried out by Shanghai scientist and International academics has confirmed that the Chinese did not originate from Peking man in northern China, but from black east Afrikan who migrated through South Asia to China some 100000 thousand years ago”.

Zig Zag Swag: The Perfect Pattern For All Body Types

Zig Zag Swag

 
Is It True that Patterns Don't Lie ?


Zig Zag is a nice print for all body types! You will also notice  the zig zag pattern lends itself to a variety of styles that might fail in horizontal or verticle stripes.
 I love the metaphor!
 Learn to zig zag in life.  You can still get where you are going but unlike walking in straight line all the time you are less likely to walk into a tree ..or pot hole-
Yamenita Rose Quartz
 
 Summer is a perfect time for Zig Zag and any other classic Black and White combination.

Thinking Man In African Art And Life Sciences By Emily Imani

Thinking Man In African Art and Life Sciences

Often  carved in Mohogany, the Thinking Man or Thinker Man is a  timeless projection of African ethics, tradition and leadership.
"After deep thought I knew what to do. Whatever I have done in haste I now know how to correct. After deep thought I know the direction, when before I did not see the path "- Yamenita Rose Quartz


In African Culture the ability to think instead of react is essential for Kingship. This statue comes in many designs in a variety of countries, tribes and families. The distinctive characteristic is the figure of a man in sober meditation, either with his head in both hands or resting on one hand. It represents the internal battle that is required to function at ones best. Do you agree that no decision is easy?  Do we take enough time away from social media and others "thought projections" (energy) to go within before "acting out" ?  Indeed there is a great  quality to this piece for the people who have descended from Africa. Let's give thanks that keys to culture and leadership our carved in wood and available for us to integrate into our lives.

Ashanti Fertility Dolls


 Fertility and Positive Cultural Explorations By Yamenita







Ashanti is a Akan Tribe of Ghana West Africa. This image is a  fertility doll of the tribe.
Ashanti Fertility Doll is called Akuaba, Akan Tribe, Ghana West Africa

The name of this fertility doll  is Akuaba. Many of these West African dolls are available in America now. I purchased several from a thrift store and placed them my bedroom. All my other statues are in the living room but I felt these would be good to keep very close for some reason. It was months later when researching the Ashanti Tribe that I learned about Akuaba. The first thing I saw when I googled Ashanti was the  image of the Ashanti Fertility Dolls that I wake up to everyday!
The Circle on top ( the head) represents fertility, the elongated oval in the upper chest area represents a women's cleansing power. The oval appears to be arms and are located between the heart and communication ( throat) centers. As we work from our lower selves perhaps we will move into our higher selves only thru our ability to cleanse our energies ( powers) prior to communication. There are many ways to opinions and many explanations for both the symbolism of the Ashanti fertility doll and the similar Ancient symbol of Life ( Eternal Life) The Ankh.
 In my practice  of Energy Healing it the nature to move energy upwards cleansing each chakra up to the crown chakra where our full power may be manifested ( birthed). I can connect such concepts as I look at the Akuaba, especially as the head is (a circle) an African symbol of eternity as well, that  represents the womb. As opposed to our physical womb, in Akuaba  the womb is placed in the "upper" self and there is a cleansing center that must be passed thru before entrance to the womb ( the head).
It is indeed a powerful fertility doll that is known to bring a woman a beautiful child. Without too much thought we can accept the traditions of African culture exactly as they are. As unique spirits we will be called to our inner wisdom which varies from person to person. Yet as branches of the same tree we must be free to come home and sit in the comforting shade of that tree and eat of its fruit to nourish oursleves. Strong tree, strong roots   -Rose Quartz, Yamenita

Ethnic Passions Summer Fashion ( Ethics and What to Wear In a Heatwave) by Emily Imani Yamenita




Let's be real whatever your body type is, it will give your fits flavor. There are some things I will wear in Hawaii or Miami that I would never wear in another type of city so it is important as well to dress for the culture and sensibilities of where you are. When im surrounded by sunshine and brownskin I'm goin to feel very natural cause I am among my fam who understands the naturalness of sensuality without making everything about sex  all day..! Lets get off that triffliness of over sexual stimulation thats so promoted in American culture and enjoy.  I like to be around the Sun and brownskin cultures. It's really up to you how you carry yourself and where you go with it. This article will further explain how I modify this fit to be more conservative!

One of the nicest things you can do is dress for your body type. Summer heat offers alot of unique opportunities to step out in skin baring outfits. It's a sweet time to soak up the sun and be free. I love an outfit with a theme so here is my Skittles deluxe look. Really it's  two tank tops one size large and the other a size extra large which I'm wearing as a short ( but not mini) skirt. This stretchy fabric lasts a long time and is comfortable.


Now I have the time and money to find the perfect matching accessories. I love waist beads and though they are worn all over Africa, I have to say in my opinion the Senegalese and the Congolese do it best. Will I go outside in this fit ?  Sure, but I will pull the tank top down to cover my mid-section and use the waist beads as more of a belt laying over the top of my skirt.

 Don't you love rainbow colors ? I do and I want to say Wtf  gay people! Rainbows are for everyone stop claiming a rainbow as your symbol.  I'm down for human rights, im not gonna go around screaming gay rights . Peace and Positive Explorations from Rose Quartz!

Javeon Byrd At Rose Quartz 
Seattle Drummer Javoen Byrd aka Tunji Awodi, was back in  Seatown this weekend. I was blessed to host him at Rose Quartz during his busy four day stay. Javoen was in town to perform with Northwest tap Connection at the Moore Theater in Downtown Seattle . Javoen was mostly raised in the South Seattle New Holly neighborhood. He recalls New Holly as being a Mecca of African cultures. While others may only think of the gangs and violence, Javoen has positive  memories of growing up in the Southend that inspired him to seek out more in life beyond the boundaries of the Pacific Northwest.



That's me second left on stage with Javoen in 2011
For the past few years he has been living and studying in Africa and most recently Louisiana. Next step is getting his Ph.D. Yes he has decided to go all the way! We had a great time building on topics such as Gentrification, Yoruba,the Chakras and Traditional healing.  We also  discussed the differences in the nightlife and dating scene, Seattle vs. New Orleans.

Javoen In Nigeria


 New Orleans just might be the place to be according to Javoen, especially if you love people, culture and a laid back environment. At any rate its great to see a old friend making new moves in the right direction. This young brother is really down for the future. He brought up some good points about more of us continuing our educations in the  sciences and getting our Doctorate Degrees. Apparently alot of programs will pay your way if you study math or the sciences, which includes psychology. Not a bad idea at all. By the way he is really heating things up with his drumming! His study and practice in Nigeria of the complex Yuroba Bata rhythms along with performing and teaching in Louisiana have enhanced the natural skills we know him for. As he moves towards mastery we got our eyes on Javoen aka Tunji Awodi!  His life story thus far is a positive message: Let's keep growing and elevating ourselves by any means possible. Inquiries and Positive Explorations can really build a successful life.
