How to Awaken Your Ecstacy

http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/ca/d0/a0/cad0a0384a08d470f59ccdaae7b9ac99.jpgDuring winter months, we need nourishment more than ever and to find our flow and light from within. There are so many awesome ways to awaken our inner energies of love, power and light, but the one that really sticks out these days is movement. The power of movement can be found in running, sex, yoga and dance to name a few. These practices open us up to greater love within ourselves and in sharing our love with others. On my own journey of finding more flow with movement, dance has recently really stuck out.

Dance brings together so many beautiful elements. We are given space to express, have fun and connect with our own body and intitution while also connecting with others.

How magical.

It is in the body that we come alive.

I attended an ecstatic dance event recently where a community of like-minded people connect over the power of expression through dance. Ecstatic dance is an intuitive-based practice where we dance barefoot to the music in whatever way feels right. There is no right or wrong, just what we feel and our truth.

Dance, in this form, is like life when we let go of the "shoulds" and rules and allow ourselves to live our  truth, vision and values. We walk the path that feels most right to us, act according to our heart and express our truth every step of the way. In doing this we free ourselves and open up to greater love.

We give ourselves the permission to be free, because it is in freedom that love grows. And the more love we have within us, the more love we have to share.

I attended a dance event and realized that movement moves us into greater ecstasy, but I also realized that we have the ability to take freedom and love further than the dance floor. It is not just on a dimly lit dance floor that we express our truth. We find the courage to shine our light in all other areas. This is really Wholehearted living (Brene Brown) because we realize that in any situation, we can lean into our intuition, free ourselves and find love.

We can find our presence and love in even the most chaotic situations and challenges we are faced with. And even in the midst of winter, we find within us lies an invincible summer.
