Dear Radiant Sister,
Each one of us comes to movement for a difference reason. Some days it's to release tention, some days it's our time to play and explore. Some days it's about diving into our emotions and sensuality and some days we aren't even sure of the reason, but we know our SoulBody is asking to be heard and felt through movement.
Movement is a natural and vital form of expression. The number one reason we feel we "can't" dance is because we have forgotten what it feels like to feel free in expression!
For thousands of years we have come together and danced! Shamans dance for rain, people dance for religious ritual. Woman danced for the crops to grow, tribe danced to celebrate a birth or transition to the afterworld. Still in many places in the world people use Movement as Prayer. Dance is a form of Soulful expression. It can act as a medicine to restore our personal power, the power of our communitiy, and the power of the earth.
Our world right now is at a time where power needs to be rebalanced. True Power. The Power that is Soulful, Loving, Inspiring, Life-Giving, Compassion and in Communion with all of life. Not the "power over another" that is life-taking, full of greed and corrupt energy, but the power that comes from joining together and connecting to our deep roots.
True Power unites us as one collective community.
With the Power~Full #metoo movement unifiying many women to come forward and speak their truth, I have also really been inspiried to move toward greater truth with both myself and all those in my life. I am speaking up for what I believe and taking right action to make postive changes in the world.
It has also inspiried me to
Take up even MORE F*CKING SPACE
MAKE NOISE (#timesup)
Let my Body express in ANYWAY she desires
And... My Movement has become My Prayer. I dance to nourish the earth, I dance to pray for a situation I need resolution with. I dance to restore equalitiy on our planet.
Movement As Prayer.
Under the Fullness of Full Blue Blood Moon, what do you want to Pray for in your Movement? Allowing your Body to unapologetically express, ask for your deepest Soul Desires with the curve of your hip. Feel into your emotions as you toss your hair. Unleash and Celebrate while your feet stomp....This is your SoulBody's Prayer.
All you have to do is Let Go and Allow.
Shine, Sister, Shine.
I will be dancing along with you under the fullness of the Moon.
