Hi! Are you watchin? 😘😘 🙋🏻♀️ No fancy yoga video today.
It’s only in the last few months I’ve started to physicalize my practice again. For years, I was busy tinkering internally. Sitting quietly in meditation, shifting worlds within, there wasn’t much to see from the outside. Most describe my approach as “subtle”, a nice way of saying “we have no idea what you’re doing”. It’s okay. I no longer take it personally.
It’s actually Instagram, that’s helped draw me out of my cave and reinvigorated my movement. I love being able to share movement and since I never studied dance it’s all stored up in me. Every gesture holds galaxies of insights, uniquely our own and also undeniably linked to a collective consciousness far beyond calculation. And, well, in order to make my work visible and heard ... I need to amplify the volume, exaggerate the subtle, let go of comprehension, trust in the bigger picture and tell my story.
This whole social media phenomenon is fascinating.
Last February, when many aspects of my life were in flux, I made the decision to pour my heart into Instagram. It wasn’t overly strategic or pre-meditated, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have more of a personal brand but to be honest it was calling from my soul. I know that is so melodramatic! But it’s true.
The soul is always right. (What’s that Rumi quote? Something like “respond to every call that excites your spirit”) Yup. Thanks to you, I have made many beautiful connections and cherish the creative playground this platform inspires in me. I am touched by the caring messages I receive and by the vibrant ideas arising from collaboration. I am so grateful to you for reading what I have to say and sharing your perspective and wisdom. Even though I haven’t met many of you in person, I feel an inexplicable life-force from your friendship.
It’s been a #TLC (tough love conditioning) kind of year and you’ve all made me feel a lot better! But even more importantly, you continue to motivate and inspire me to express my truth.
