What does being fully embodied mean to you?
For me, it means feeling and expressing myself in my entirety.
Physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. ALL of me.
I had a few really hard days in Bali.
A place like that for a person like me can be very opening, and as we know, opening to all your shadow, traumas and patterns can be scary and... Well, it is a lot for one woman to confront her deepest, sneakiest layers of demons while traveling on her own.
On the hardest day, I found a medicine I had never quite discovered at that dosage - ecstatic dance.
So for you non-woo-woo-moonbeams reading this, exactly WTF is ecstatic dance?
For two hours, you move freely. Luscious tribal and house beats, fully expressed humans, no phones, no speaking with words. All this at 11am on a Sunday morning (it’s church fasho).
All communication was through movement and presence. In the three ecstatic dance sessions I participated in, I met myself and healed on an entirely new level.
I felt fully embodied.
All of me was welcomed home.
I cried, laughed, and felt the breath move through my body.
I felt sexy, empowered, free, expressed, magnetic, open, safe and loving.
I felt like a powerful woman, an innocent child, and a siren goddess all at once.
I had deeply intimate interactions with humans I had never seen before, and felt more safe and held than I have with many past lovers and friends.
It showed me the power of being fully EMBODIED.
To welcome home ALL parts of yourself.
To reflect and display our wholeness.
To celebrate it all, every bit fully integrated into your you-ness, as a divine symbol of our oneness.
Friends - especially my fellow healers, lightworkers, and coaches - I would love to know:
What does being embodied mean to you? What rituals or actions do you take (or offer) to get into that space?
If experimenting sounds fun, I highly recommend throwing the entirety of your being onto the dance floor - even if that dance floor is your bedroom.
Just as an experiment.
Let me know how it goes 💛😘💃🏻🕺🏽✨💫
