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,
