Time to Dance

Thank you to Sister Goddess Jewel for writing these words of wisdom and to Sister Goddess Cecilia for BEing a LOVECAT and creating a ripple . . . .

We Have Come to be Danced

We have come to be danced
Not the pretty dance
Not the pretty pretty, pick me, pick me dance
But the claw our way back into the belly
Of the sacred, sensual animal dance
The unhinged, unplugged, cat out of its box dance
The holding the precious moment in the palms
Of our hands and feet dance.
We have come to be danced
Not the jiffy booby, shake your booty for him dance
But the wring the sadness from our skin dance
The blow the chip off our shoulder dance.
The slap he apology from our posture dance.
We have come to be danced
Not the monkey see, monkey do dance
One two dance like you
One two three, dance like me dance
But the grave robber, tomb stalker
Tearing scabs and scars open dance
The rub the rhythm raw against our soul dance.

We have come to be danced
Not the nice, invisible, self-conscious shuffle
But the matted hair flying, voodoo mama
Shaman shaking ancient bones dance
The strip us from our casings, return our wings
Sharpen our claws and tongues dance
The shed dead cells and slip into
The luminous skin of love dance.

We have come to be danced
Not the hold our breath and wallow in the shallow end of the floor dance
But the meeting of the trinity: the body, breath and beat dance
The shout hallelujah from the top of our thighs dance
The mother may I?
Yes you may take ten giant leaps dance
The olly olly oxen free free free dance
The everyone can come to our heaven dance.

We have come to be danced
Where the kingdoms collide
In the cathedral of flesh
To burn back into the light
To unravel, to play, to fly, to pray
To root in skin sanctuary
We have come to be danced! We have come."

These words gave me goosebumps. They stirred up my passions and got my juices flowing.
"to root in skin sanctuary" - Wow!!! What OMazing imagery and spectrum of feelings.

CAT OUT OF ITS BOX dance - that's so totally me - thank you for languaging those feelings that had no names. Thank you for waking me up and helping me feel and reclaim all part of ME.

Sometimes it's the simplest things in life that have me stumped.
PRIORITIES is one I have been working on for a while now.
Learning how to balance my family, my JOB (joy of being) and myself.
Finding that space where all can co-exist
and still leave me space to breathe and grow.

Wanting so much to participate and add new things to my life.
So many fabulous activities and opportunities and healing modalities available.

Knowing I must create SPACE for this to happen
by letting go of what no longer serves me.
Breathing - deep breath as I clear my mind and surrender.
Letting the answers come to me.
Changing my habits and creating the sacred space to manifest a new reality.

Focusing on what is truly important for me,
what aligns to my values and vision of who I am.
Breathing into the change, the space,

the place that I can feel is coming.

Stepping back and within so I can emerge whole and
healthy so as to better give and receive.

Like a pendulum - going from one extreme to the other -
anticipating the slowing down and finding my center.
