Energy Musings. Here. Now.

Today!

Rhythms & Cycles are up today and this weekend.  Particularly around the number 12.  Think of what this number means to you. What is your perspective? As you consider the number 12 and its relationship to your life, ground through the soles of your feet.  Now round through the SOULS of your feet.

You may need to first open up the bottoms of your feet.  You can do this through massage.  Maybe you need to remove calluses for better blood flow to the feet? See what care your feet need today.  Make your feet happy!  Maybe they need to dance or be elevated?  This is a vital piece before connecting in and grounding through the feet.

Then consider rhythms & cycles. YOUR rhythms and cycles.  How they move, how they flow, how they repeat.  Notice the patterns in your life and week and day.  Notice the patterns in each moment.  Think of the number 12.  Where and how does it play out in your world? These rhythms have something to show you in the next few days.  Be open to their personal messages.

Energy Musings.  Here. Now.

Today!

Look into the places where you feel afraid.  Peer inside with tenderness and care.  Be willing to see the places that scare you.  The dark places.  The shadowy corners.  What lurks there?

These hidden fears are often representations of something tender, raw, vulnerable.  We make them into monsters in our mind, but they are more like prey.  If we ask these places what they need, we can shift them and bring ourselves into deeper levels of balance in the process.

What are you concerned about, worried for, right now?   Remember this:  All of us, ALL of us, regardless of class, race, upbringing, religion, belief systems, share in this human quality of wanting to survive.  In this survival place, we all have our concerns which sometimes get triggered into fears.  We wear these fears very similarly:  as anger, pride, self-righteousness, stubbornness.  But really, we all just need to be safe.  If I look around at those yelling the loudest, at those who are most accusatory, at those who have been ignored or those who have the most, I see people who just want to feel secure. Who just want to know they, and their loved ones are protected.

Are we, as a Human race, able to look beyond the chasms of our differences, and see this common need for stability , this shared interest of being healthy and whole, as a unifying trait?

Start with you.  Start with now.  Start right here.

Energy Musings.  Here. Now.

Today.

Wake me up inside.  From the inside out.  From the outside in.  From all around at once.  From every direction simultaneously.

Like a wind sweeping through the trees,  dance me in this wakefulness.  Like a rain let loose from above, soak me in this wakefulness.  Like a sun, rising to its full strength, bask me in this wakefulness.

Wake me in from the outside.

Like the breath, rising and falling in each and every moment, without hesitation, wake me up from the inside.

Wake me out from the inside.

In every cell, in every sound,  in every taste, in every touch, in every sight, in every sensation,  in every moment, in this moment

wake me up.

Energy Musings.  Here.  Now.

Today!

What a week so far!!  I could write a book for you this week with all that is happening! The opening created by the alignment of the Full Moon leading into the Fall Equinox, has brought up the past, the past and the past.  Call “it” what you will, many have been experiencing this as pressure, pain, sickness, tiredness, etc.  This is happening on every level, from the personal to the planetary.  Focus today on the personal.

Movement is the key.  In particular, circular movement.  As in Bellydance or QiGong, circular patterns are UP.  And it is taking a LOT of movement to keep the body from seizing, gripping or going into old patterns.  This could be on a subtle internal level or very literal.  Its important to not get discouraged or judgemental if you do find yourself in one of these “stuck” places.  Perhaps you are there because you need to pay deeper attention to what it actually is or where you are actually stuck?  In all cases, remain vigilant, clear minded, and accepting.  And keep moving!!!!

The more you can clear today, the cleaner your transition through the rest of the week will be.  As the last “official” day of Summer, dance, sing, move, play and celebrate all that you have experienced and appreciated from the past season. Give thanks to what you have created, what you left behind and what is coming.  Dance your prayer, alone or in a group, maybe even outside to the moonlight!  And let it go.

Word of the day:  Clear!  (using circles!)

Today! 

Take Care of You today.  With the work of the season, of this beginning period, it is all too easy to have self care slip through cracks slowly or fall to the bottom of the chasm in an instant!  When you take the time out to notice JUST WHAT YOU NEED, you can put a stop to that slippery slope and reclaim your health and well being fairly quickly.

Notice where you might be off today.  Tired?  Achy?  Sore throat?  And then sit with those sensations to see what it is you need.  Maybe this is a long known pattern attributed to allergies and you know exactly the remedy that will work but just haven’t bothered to take it or purchase it yet?  Maybe its something new that you are feel too tired to deal with? Whatever the case, some fresh air and sunshine, a moment or two of silence, and a quick check in with your breath, will help guide you in the right direction for healing.

Areas that are under a lot of pressure today and this week include the middle back (particularly left side) and deep in the pelvis.  This is also manifesting in the throat with dryness and hoarsness.

Movement that rotates or gently twists the body in yoga or dance (or Tai Chi~) helps release the middle blockage.  Allowing that movement its natural access up the spine through the throat and down the body through the pelvis will help release the upper and lower blockages.

Access your own healing knowledge and take care of yourself today for a wonderful week ahead!

Energy Musings. Here. Now.

Today!

Sometimes you just need to Dance.  Move into that formless state of energy.  Listening deeply to your bodies needs.  You really don’t even need music for this kind of movement.

It is meditation, yoga, transformation, prayer, sweat, tears, rhythm, cleansing, grounding, freeing, filling.  It is a place where thoughts don’t interfere with your connection to the Divine, your connection to your Soul.  It is a place where no ones opinion matters. Where there are no politics or politically correct.  Where there is no judgement, fear, expectation, copying, teaching or need to prove anything.

You can do this by yourself ANYTIME.  Just keep letting go into your body and move it!

Dance until you sweat, until you feel your muscles, until your breath is deep and fuller than you ever imagined.

Today (or tomorrow 😉  Just Dance.

Today, the energetics of Bellydance.

The Art of Bellydance is both an introspective reflection of oneself and the Divine (looking inward) AND an outward creation of Joy, Grace and Gratitude (expressing out). In this way it follows all great traditions leading to balance and enlightenment through understanding the flow of energy In and Out. Like the Breath itself, it contains all the information our bodies and consciousness need to be awake and aware in this life here and now. The fitness, strength and confidence that also result from the bellydance are to me like Icing on the Cake.

This is Sacred Dance.StudiointheWoods©DianaSherblomPhotography-803-3
