Ever feel like you are trying to find your grounding?
That place that exists within your mind, body and spirit that makes you feel...
at one with the higher universe and your highest self...
It's quite a place to get to and I've managed to find a fun metaphor about it all that relates directly to becoming a better dancer and human being.
Go to any modern dance class, ballet, or contemporary and I hope to God they are telling you to "use your center."
What is a center?
It's that holistically connecting central point of a that axis keeps your body in balance.
It allows you to jump, relevet, turn, leap, shake and shimmy without hurting yourself.
Your center is the energetic force of the ethereal body that keeps your earthly and spirit connection in the physical body.
Centering requires us to use our abdominal muscles, our core, or our solar plexus chakra.
Centering our minds and emotions requires us to dig deep into the core to discover how to release that which ails us or calls us.
Our center in the body and in life is the source of power, freedom and sense of control that we seek.
We go up, we go down, we go to the side.
We keep going.
We keep working our different brain muscles. Emotional muscles. All the energetic frequencies.
Kind of like life.. there are so many directions we can travel, yet if we don't have a sense of connection that keeps us purposeful, we can end up feeling something or doing something which is unfamiliar and possibly undesired.
Once mastered and activated we find that our center allows us to leap and fall.
Succeed and fail?
Our center allows us to DO IT ALL.
We can be connected to our body, mind, spirit and soul all at the same time when we take the time to nurture and be conscious of our center.
It is physical.
It is emotional.
It is social.
It is spiritual.
How are you using your center to take risks, attempt new paths, while staying attune to the WHOLE of you.
