Daily Aligning with Love, Abundance, and Peace #311

I’m grateful for dancing. Dancing has this way of moving all the energy around in my body to get in flowing in the right direction again. Sometimes all I need to do is enjoy a good shake. Other times, I need to shake, bounce, and swing my arms. I get in touch with who I am in the vibrations of music and movement. Dancing helps me to release all the thoughts, beliefs, and energy that are getting stuck in my body and mind. Stuck energy is never a good thing. What way to better to jiggle it loose than to dance?

When I was going through the very challenging phase of breaking free from a toxic relationship, I danced A LOT. I would go over my best friend’s house and we would just dance to Black Eyed Peas, “I gotta Feeling”. We would bounce, shake, sing, and swing our arms all around. I’m listening to the song as I’m writing these words. My head is moving with the music. I just can’t sit still. I just have to move when I hear this song.

This song helped me awaken my soul when I thought I had become just a shell. Dancing was a tool that helped me lift my spirits when the thoughts going through my head were too overwhelming to process. Now, all I have to do is close my eyes and picture dancing—my soul is lifted.

Today, I commit to dancing to align my energy with love, abundance, and peace. Sometimes, I forget what a powerful tool dancing is for my well-being. Sitting here, I’m brought back to how much fun I had with friends and family dancing my heart out. I think of all the times that dancing and moving to music helped me get past some of my most turbulent times. When I’m doing good, I forget that it’s still a good time to dance.

As I talked about yesterday, I love my music playlists. A dancing playlist is essential for me. I put music on it that I will dance to in my car, while I’m cleaning, while I’m doing laundry, etc. I love being able to engage in my full joy even when doing everyday tasks. When I’m dancing, my head is not spinning in the dread. For me, dancing can improve any task and any mood. I feel joy just thinking about it. Today’s plan, dance every chance I get! When I feel joy in a moment through dancing, I’m instantly connected with energy of love, abundance, and peace.

With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

  1. I smiled while reading this! I am also using dancing and music to be aligned with myself. I always feel like dancing is a complete exercise where you put your mind, body and soul. In traditional exercises, apart from cardiac and related, we miss that part of rythm and flow. And yes it a wonderful way to release blocked energy within our body.

  2. I also wanted to ask something. As you have mentioned many times that you came out of a toxic relationship. What were the first signs or things that made you think it is toxic. How did you recognized this?

    • The first sign was my lack of self-worth. I didn’t realize how unlovable and unworthy I felt, so when someone put me on a pedestal and made lots of promises of a perfect future, I jumped in with two feet. Next, I wanted to be on the pedestal, so I would do anything to be this “perfect” girlfriend. I did things to gain my worth and be loved. Those took me a lot longer to figure out, but they were what got me into a toxic relationship. With him, he started getting controlling over where I was going and what I was doing. When something good was happening in my career, he would do something to start a fight or belittle what was happening. The relationship moved super fast. There were a lot of broken promises, verbal abuse, and secrets. A huge sign was he wasn’t able to take responsibility and accountability for his actions. Everything he did, said, or reacted to was someone else’s fault. He was being who he was and I was sick in my own thinking and beliefs about what love was. I would take blame in order to get back on the pedestal, which was my own issues. I’ve learned that there is never one unhealthy person in a relationship. When one person is healthy and the other is not, the healthy person leaves. Only when I got myself emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually healthy, could I leave the relationship. There was no looking back, and I didn’t engage in any revenge games. Revenge is not a healthy mindset. If I found myself daydreaming there, I knew my mind wasn’t in a healthy place and I would do what I needed to do to get myself out of it. I found myself in my toxic relationship, and for that, I will be forever grateful. Now, I know what love is, how to show love, and receive love in a healthy ways.

      • Thank you for replying in such a detail. I can see some patterns here with some people I know. Blaming others for evrything is one of them. I can understand your position. This relates to what lessons I am learning right now. We need to be more authentic. I was able to do well with most people. But some people are really better at playing games and showing a personality that they actually are not. I have shut how I feel just because I couldn’t speak at the moment and then feeling totally crap and being fooled. I am learning to say and express what I really feel. This answer will help me in this🙂
