Dance through the eclipse of possibility towards all you seek.

I dance. Without embarrassment. In full view. A spectacle. I love it. I’ll dance to just about any sort of music, as long as it has a beat. Dancing brings out my energy, boosts my stamina, brings me closer to Source… to myself. I dance to release. I dance to express. I dance because it feels good. And, usually, come early morning or late evening – even under the stars of a dark as shit night you can find me dancing in the streets, yards, on the decks, and along the pathways around wherever my current place of residence is.
Dancing, like singing, smiling, and feeling the frequency of joy and love and gratitude, is a cog in the mechanism of the creation process for me. I need to generate the juice to create, and then I need to wind down once creation is complete. I also like to surprise people, and dancing in the streets when it is least expected is one way I do that.
The mood to dance usually strikes in the early morning hours of pre-dawn, or those so late that the light of day and the dark of night have already shaken hands. Its light and silly and sorta stupid, but that’s what I like about it. With my iPhone and a set of ear buds, I’m good to go with any audibles that are dance-a-rific.
I’ve been dancing since I could walk. My mom enrolled me in tap lessons when I was in pre-school, I think. By the time kindergarten rolled around I was already performing in school variety shows. Tap was eventually exchanged for horses and other activities, which were exchanged for… which were exchanged for…, but I kept dancing. My audience? The unexpecting, exacting man on the street… his kids, their friends, and the neighborhood cable guy. Whomever happened to be around, or not. It’s not like I go out and look for a crowd, then set off in dance. I’m glad to do that. But, it is me, usually just feeling so happy and full of energy I want to express it creatively. So I dance on the front lawn, or in a little cubby in an otherwise crowded area, or street-side, if walking or just plain caution-free. There are even a number of nights you could have caught me in the middle of the street in AZ, or OZ, or SF, or LI, under the light of a street lamp, just kickin’ ass on the concrete. It makes you feel like you’re on stage, in the silence of the night, with the blasting notes crashing in your head. You’re dancing for you and you’re disturbing no one. So, why not make good use of these outside scapes? They’re cotton for the candy.
What’s my point in talking about dancing in a blog about consciousness, creation, and the collective imagination? Simple. Dance is creation. It is also the generator of creative OJ. In other words, if you’re in a slump, or you can’t seem to connect outside 3D find that “thing” that inspires. Creativity begets creativity. For me, I dance.
Same goes if you need to shake loose the negativity, the stress, the voices of others in order to find that frequency of you. Find that “thing” that offers release to you. That could be dance, or singing, or pounding out a wall in your home renovation. Something creative that is also physical, or expressive (like drawing or singing), clears out the 3D crap and opens up the space for you to come back through.
My son gets embarrassed when he sees me dancing in the yard, down the sidewalk, or blocks down the street while walking. He can often be found rolling down his truck window, furiously, trying to yell at me to STOP! I just smile and keep going. Why?
…and, he does.
Be yourself. Allow your evolution. Find your frequency. Create.
Oh… and if you can squeeze in a quick two-step next time you’re in an elevator, think of me. 🙂
