Honoring my gifts and talents

For the past decade or more I have poo-pooed my gift as a free form dancer.

I have always honored my gift as a “freestyler”: someone, in my definition, who can get down street style, like hip-hop and funk styles of dancing or in Latin or W. African dance.  Someone who can just really get down without choreography.

I am a great freestyle dancer.

Tonight I realized that I have always thought of “free form” movement as something so simple, so easy.  It is not difficult; it doesn’t require any technique or “skill”, so it doesn’t showcase my talents.  Anyone can do it.  Wow, what a judgment!

What I am inquiring about here is: what was my purpose for dancing free form?  What was I looking to gain or hope to attain by dancing free form?

Was it fame?  Recognition?  Love, attention, affection, accolades?

I don’t know.  I don’t think so.  I have always just wanted to dance the way I dance and be full of life that way.  I don’t want to “have to” do it someone else’s way.

Now, I do derive great pleasure from learning other dances and “doing it” like someone else would.  It can be a great achievement to master someone else’s choreography or the style of a new dance form and just go for it!

However, there is something so sweet, so personal, so spot on about free form dance, just MOVING Spiritually, just how your spirit might dance if you were outside of your body.

In this moment I am valuing my gift as a free form dancer for pure expression.  It is a gift and I want to share it with all of life.  I want to support myself and others to let our Spirits soar, let our lights shine and move freely, how we truly want to.  It doesn’t have to look good or be cool.  It can just be.  Be what it is.

What is pure expression?

When you are moving purely, what does that look like, feel like?

When will you start exploring this in your own life?

    We each have a unique soul signature, and while we all share common needs, there is no other who can sing and dance like we can throughout the cosmos, shine on!
