Last night I was invited to join a friend at an ecstatic dance. If you don’t know what ecstatic dance is, well it isn’t quite as racy as it sounds. It’s an open, free form, dance party where everyone is invited to dance in the way they would like, in any way they choose. There isn’t any talking on the dance floor and most people dance by themselves for just the joy of dancing.
Once on the dance floor, I found myself slightly uncomfortable and feeling a bit out of place. These people were friendly and inviting, and I can dance, so I asked, “What is this and why am I feeling it?”
I noticed that, because I wasn’t fully “comfortable” in the space, I had been making myself small and my being was only partially filling my body. No wonder I was feeling uncomfortable. I was only partially there.
Have you ever done anything like that? Gone into a place where you didn’t fully feel comfortable and then you made yourself smaller so you wouldn’t stand out?
To quickly change this say, “I claim all my body’s space, I claim all the space my body occupies!” You can even go as far as claiming more or even all the space around you. After I did that, I started to have more fun dancing. Yeah! That was until I saw myself in the mirror.
Now I consider myself a pretty good dancer, I can even partner dance, but looking in the mirror I saw that I was pretty rigid, and even jerky in my dancing. I started hearing, “White boy can’t dance,” in my head. I wondered, why I am so rigid, so jerky? What things were making my body rigid? Were there energy blocks or physical blocks causing this?
I then got that my body needed to clear his blocks. I clear energetic blocks in my being every day, but I was getting that my body needed to clear blocks in body ways. So I shook my body by dancing, jumping around, moving my arms, hands, feet and legs. I also asked for universal energies to move through my body, my joints, and clear out any and all stuck and stagnate energies.
What things have you been clearing or trying to clear mentally or with energy work, that your body needs to clear in her or his own way with movement? What energetic blocks have we thought needed to be cleared with energetic clearings that actually could be cleared easier with body movements?
Now it doesn’t have to be dancing that clears body blocks, so what stepping, jumping, skipping, twisting, stretching or other moving would your body like to do that would also clear what you or your body have been trying to change and clear?
What if you could have fun moving your body and clearing at the same time?
Let me know how it goes.
