If you had told me last year, that at this time this year....I'd lead a mother flippin ecstatic dance on Oak Island...Well I would have laughed in your face at such an absurd thought.
BUT...it just happened. And WOW! The energy from the women who showed up- blew me away and flooded my heart with some much needed reassurance that I am right where I'm supposed to be, and that shit IS changing.
People are waking up, getting in touch with something bigger than themselves, and seeking connection and light. I see it EVERYWHERE I go, and now to witness it here in my hometown island community, just rekindles hope for a collective shift in consciousness. Sure it might not be in mass proportions, sure it might not happen overnight, but damnit I'm still a believer.
I just facilitated an incredibly beautiful ecstatic dance, on Oak Island! I mean that sentence just sounds so crazy! When I was discussing whether or not there'd be interest in Ecstatic Dance here, I thought, there's only one way to find out- build it and they will come. And tonight we did it. And we all soaked up the power of music, movement, and the goddess within. I love all the women who showed up tonight ✨❤️✨I'm still glowing!
Now I'vee been hearing quite a bit of negative banter about this area recently- both Wilmington and Southport/Oak Island- people feeling underwhelmed with these places, dying to get away, go somewhere else, and just talking down on the area. And Ive felt like that too. But you can't depend on an external place to bring you internal joy, happiness, peace. You'll never find that 'perfect place' to call home. It doesnt exist. And this area just like ANY area, will become whatever you make of it. The people that have joined me for my spiritual development workshop, the ecstatic dances, are so potently refreshing- they appreciate the growing community, they see the good in themselves and us. They see the beauty all around. Sure it's not perfect. There are lots of issues here, as there are everywhere else in a world ruled by corrupt politics and dirty money. But you create your own world, no matter where in the world you are. Choose to create that which you want, that which you love ❤️
