This morning, my container for holding my anxiety burst open. I shared my anxiety nightmare with Patty. She didn't like it much, but even with my strategies, this COVID has infiltrated my energy. It's time to explore other options because that is not something I like laying on someone else. So, I made a vow to myself to up my protocols for well being today. I woke up and turned to my learning about Chakra Dancing. Sounds funny, right? It's not. It's a simple, uninhibited showing up for your body and your energy. It is moving to release blockages and allow energy to flow.
The root chakra, Muladhara in Sanskrit is located at the base of the spine and supports our feelings of security and connectedness with the earth. Red and Adventurine (crystal) are associated with healing and balancing this energy center. I applied patchouli and cypress to the base of my feet and closed the curtains. I put on my music and danced. 12 minutes. No one as an audience, just a chance to inhabit my body without judgement. There is hip movement, there is a rhythm to it, but the rhythm is ours to create.
A few years ago I spent four days with Dr. Jalaja Bonheim, a circle leader and healer of women across the world. Our work was in essence, connecting with our inner divine feminine and the first thing we did was dance without a routine, without a plan. I was like a lump of coal- completely afraid to be in my own body. By the time the weekend was over, I knew dancing without worry had to be a part of my healing process and world.
If you're curious and would like to try it out in an unrecorded, judgement free zone, check out my Sunrise and Smiles group. We will Chakra dance on Saturdays- three in a row so you can get a sense of what it is. The first dance- the root will offer grounding benefits. Get something red to wear or inspire you. If you have patchoulis or cypress oils, they will deepen your experience. Join me. It's actually quite fun! It's grounding and freeing at the same time.
