Dance. Dance. Dance.

Ever since I was a child, dance was my “go to” for feeling the most connected to myself. I put on my mother’s off white eyelet robe, go outside and dance around the cherry trees. It wasn’t about technique, but rather expression. While I am trained in dance, my favorite to this day is more improvisational.

Also, I connect to something even larger than myself. It feels holy. Sacred.

Feminine. Freeing. Belonging. Beautiful.

So movement is key to my trauma healing and recovering of my original self.

I encourage you to connect to your body in this way. Dance like nobody is watching is a common expression used to encourage us to be free.

I say dance like the whole world is watching and welcoming your existence. Why not?

Simple. Just put on your favorite music and move. Move from the inside out. Feel what’s going on in your body. Pay attention to your mind. Is there any judgement? Just notice. This is your time. Enjoy!

When you are finished just check in with how you are feeling. Yay!

Let me know how it was.
Love, YeYe

Trauma tool kit

I can shake off everything if I write. My sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn. Anne Frank

As I shared, I experienced a trauma setback. So what did I do? Along with a friend, I went to Union Square in San Francisco where I live. They were having an outdoor dance party.  I danced “as if no one were watching”. It worked.  Dancing for me is as writing for Anne Frank.

What about you? If you feel hurt or even broken, what is in your tool kit?
