Core Wisdom Heart Healing DanceThere is a flow to all life, a striving for growth and an invitation to surrender into deep peace.

Imagine you’re flowing down the river of life and suddenly you get caught in a branch that spins you around and you’re no longer in the flow. There are many branches that may capture you on this river, each one with a different characteristics, this one represents how you MOVE your physical body.

Lack of movement creates a stagnant body system, effecting your health, energy levels and emotional state.

Often our main focus of movement is as exercise to burn fat, build muscles, improve cardiovascular health, move lymph and detox the body. These are all great steps towards health, inner peace and finding your flow, but this is only the beginning. Movement can also connect you to your emotions, energetic nature and spiritual self, through this re-connection amazing healings takes place. This is when movement becomes therapeutic eg. Dance Movement Therapy (DMT).

One DMT experience that had a dramatic affect on me was while dancing with my daughter who was 3 at the time. We were participants in a parent and child class. In this session the aim was to provide an environment for creative expression and connection. The teacher had laid out Mexican style hats around the room and we were invited to skip around the hats to Spanish music. It became a dance of leading and following. The music became gentler and we were asked to stop momentarily, make shapes with our body, and then move again.

The shapes we made could be anything; arms open wide, scrunching into a ball, lay flat out on the ground. Then we added making shapes with each other; me down on all fours (hands and knees) and my daughter flopped over my back, my daughter doing a handstand against the wall and me wiggling in under her. It was a magical time of co-creativity, my heart suddenly exploded with pure joy and love in the moment. It was incredibly healing for me, like some aspect of my closed heart had broken open and I allowed deep love to penetrate into me. This was followed by deep peace and acceptance of all that was and all that had been. I had “let go” and was in the flow.

Movement is an unsung hero when it comes to personal development and healing. We can discover so much about ourselves, release energy blockages and move towards a peace filled state and return to the flow. Hugs and shaking hands are movements, laughing and smiling are movement too. These can be done everyday if you allow them to be a part of your life. You have your own way to move, I dare you, get up right now and move a little ….. even if it’s just to shake your body before you read the next article.

The flow of life is always there. Allowing it to move unrestricted through your life is the challenge and the journey.

Love and Wisdom
