A Dance To Behold

Moist with sweat and a smile of complete joy radiating on so many faces I joined the ecstatic dance community this morning in Nevada City, California to celebrate the deep feminine rising.

Yesterday saw 1,000’s of women (and men) marching through the streets of their cities and towns across the globe. The posts on Facebook revealed the empowerment within women’s expression on behalf of equality, dignity, justice, compassion and love. 

The connection and energy that was generated swept the planet.

Even I, who was in deep meditation and prayer – holding the space for those that were marching – felt the rising and embodiment of something that has been pulsing under the surface for awhile now. 

We must take a look at the unfolding here.  Would this have happened in just such a way if the catalyst of Donald Trump being elected President of the U.S. was not present? 

Perhaps.  Yet trusting the unfolding versus living in fear is something to consider.    

The journey we are all on right now, at this pivotal turning point in our human and planetary history, is meant to bring the dark into the light to be seen more clearly, to face the challenges head on, and for effective collaborative action to be taken.  

The bubbles that some of us have been hidden in are broken wide open…. and there is nowhere to hide. We are not alone.

We are moving beyond our own limited self interest to embody the deep interconnection that holds all 7 billion humans on this planet.  To take action in sisterhood and brotherhood. To become deeply rooted and collaborative with the natural world – the Earth – that sustains our very being. 

What happens next?  Continuing to wake up and connect.  And within that waking up finding the dance steps that match our soul’s purpose here.  Joining others that would welcome us in as the missing piece that they have been looking for.

Any rigidity that we hold must soften.  For hidden in the rigid, frozen, unsustainable and repetitive breath holding patterns that so often hold us in their grip is a new way of being. 

A way of being that like ecstatic dance releases our fullest expression and potential – our joy in connection, collaboration and solidarity.  A fertile landscape for the change that is being called for.

There can be no sustainable strength for the many tasks before us if there is tension and fear keeping us prisoner.  There is literally no breath – no life – in those spaces. 

Yearning for freedom to dance as if no one was watching…. and as if everyone is watching. 

These next steps we take as women, and with the men that join us, must come from the fullest breath possible. Acknowledging the challenges before us and being willing to fall on our faces if must be.  No longer quiet. 

Expressing with powerful dignity…. and vast compassion and love that holds each being we touch as ourselves.

I help you reveal new possibilities in your creative work

Language is fundamental to who we are as biological beings and is the primary vehicle for taking action that produces effective results.   It inherently carries within it our identity in the world and the potential for connection and collaboration.

As an advanced practitioner of Jin Shin Jyutsu I am able to see and work with the connection between the body’s energy system and that of language. Conversations actually live in our bodies. Words hold energy that stimulate our biology in various ways.

Transformative writing opens spaces, triggers possibility and stimulates your reader to take effective action.

This is Language as Energy Medicine.

86,400 Seconds

14192518_10211024910316622_2531422532774769202_n

When did we as women in this lifetime forget who we are….and who we are not.  Granted older age allows space and time for reflection however, something that is so important it escapes our everyday consciousness brought itself to me today.

We are life givers, hand maidens to the Divine, passionate sexual beings, love incarnate, and grounded indigenous Earth stewards.  It is not what we do, but who we are in any given moment.

Life seems to stream from us as if there is no tomorrow and yesterday has been lost for all time.  The 86,400 seconds we are blessed with each day are ours to squander, to get things done….or to drop into in such a way that “time” seems to stand still.  Our attention drops into the stillness and motion of creation.  Into our bodies, our breath, our hearts…..sourced from Soul.

14938159_10211024910396624_7439794073390358778_nThe agendas, “to do” lists, committees for this and that, obligations, demands from others, and endless expectations of our own keep us enslaved by their very nature.  Not to say that right livelihood and courageous work in the world is not important.

More importantly it is the moment where we realize that this is it.  That we have no other moment except this one to deeply honor, appreciate and bow down to the sensations, thoughts, feelings, sounds, and beauty that inhabits even the darkest and most challenging experiences.

14956041_10211024910716632_27172533540421828_nThis is now.  This is our life.  Our pleasure.  Our pain.  Nothing about these moments demands that we prove we are enough, up to it, beautiful, competent, strong, courageous, have it together, or even know what the heck we are doing.

This is life by the way.  An experiment in living in the moments that are given to us.  And we never know when they will be taken away…..forever.

14915630_10211024910076616_7660976248441203953_n How many seconds of this lifetime will you allow to simply pass on through without noticing the moss on the rock by the creek and how soft and green it is, the sound of water flowing through your body rocking you from within, the softness of an extra layer of pine needles that has gifted you with a spongy path to walk upon after the rains, the majesty of trees married together forever for as long as you touch them with love, the smells of rich earth rising into your nostrils to ground you into the very roots of your being….
