Circle Addiction

I am Vividly Woman! I want to shout it from the roof tops and throw my bra out the window!

I feel compelled to share yesterday’s Ah Ha moment with my Sisters because I want this for all of us.

Life happens each and everyday, thank Goddess. Yesterday happened to be one of those days that challenged my nerves and tested my resolve. At midnight my youngest daughter woke me up with the news that her belly hurt.

For the next five hours she proceeded to throw up thanks to the stomach flu she picked up at school. It was an agonizing, exhausting night and an even harder morning getting my other kids up and off to school.

The clean up began and I was feeling quite cranky. In the midst of the chaos I looked in my agenda to make sure I wasn’t missing something and I saw that I had scheduled a call with my business partner and Vividly Woman Sister, Leela. A smile crossed my lips. Yeah! I get to have a little sister time.

The familiar tingles rose through my body. It was then that I reminded myself to close my eyes and bring myself back to my circle of sisters who I had just left a few weeks back while at Vividly Woman Leaders Circle 1 in Ojai, California. I held my left hand up and my right hand down and I was transformed back to ME in all my Goddess glory, mop in hand and all.

Another jolt of joy and calm rose up when I reminded myself that I would be once again physically in circle in just a few weeks when I assist at Sacred Sensual Splendor in Mexico. Ahhhh, yesssss!

I know for sure that participating in circles as often as possible, live and virtual, is an indulgence, verging on addiction, that I’ve consciously chosen to give/gift myself. I am worthy of the support, the love and the sisterhood that fuels my soul and ignites my spirit. I am in true awe of how I’ve peeled away the layers that had built up over time and I’ve allowed myself to bring back that little girl that was buried deep inside; the excited, sensual, curious, playful and hopeful girl – the girl who knows not to just get through a day, but to dance through it.

I am living breathing proof that Vividly Woman & sacred circle changes lives.

I”m embodying and exuding what I’m learning from each circle. I’ve become a beautiful example for my family to see how I value taking care of myself physically, emotionally and spiritually. The peaks and valleys I experience come much more smoothly. In return, those around me serve ME, the Goddess, in reverence and respect. I love my life, I love my sisters, and I love being Vividly Woman.

Why Do We Resist What is So Good For Us?

Many sisters have signed up for the Dance Your Power for Darfur Daily Dance-A- Thon, yet In spite of our best intentions to dance for 15 minutes a day, 15 measly minutes per day, even the most devoted of us are challenged to live up to this meager commitment.

Well, it is precisely because we are challenged that we must do it. If it were easy, there probably would not be women in parts of the world who are denied the basic right and freedom of dancing. If it were easy, we ourselves would likely not be suffering from burn out and chronic disease and lack of self care the way so many of us are.

If it were easy to prioritize our self care and healing self expression, the world would be a profoundly different place.

So, these are the things to understand and accept:

1. It is not easy, and that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it.
2. Community and sisterhood help.
3. Reaching out and sharing the challenge can inspire us beyond the resistance.
4. Most of us do not have self-care wired within us. It needs to be learned and practiced in order to get the hang of it.
5. Dancing together, even if only in spirit, is easier than dancing alone.
6. Remembering that you dance for your sisters when you dance helps alot

Please keep this list handy. When the impulse occurs to you not to dance, remember how blessed we are to live in a world where we can, and then find the dance that most wants to flow from within you in that moment. And remember that there is dance even in stillness!
