A while back I purchased T. Thorn Coyle‘s Devotional Dance DVD so I could start working through Evolutionary Witchcraft and actually know what the heck I was doing. (I can’t learn dance moves from a book. I just can’t.)
It arrived right before I left for Orlando, so I promised myself I’d start with dancing in the morning as soon as I got back. I got back and my back went kaplooey, so now I’ve been bedridden for over a month, thinking I wish I could do those dances.
Well now I can!
That’s right. I’m finally feeling well enough to do some devotional dances in the morning.
I decided to start with the Triple Soul: Sticky One, Shining Body, and Sacred Dove. I did the Sticky One dance for the full time Thorn did on the DVD, but for Shining Body and Sacred Dove I had to stop a little earlier, as I was getting winded.
The result: I feel awesome.
I’m freaking glowing. You can’t even see my acne. (Which apparently is supposed to stop with high school, but my body never got that memo.)
There’s a small pain in my back, but it’s nothing. I haven’t even taken a percoset or a muscle relaxant today, and already I feel like I could conquer the world.
I feel intimately connected to my body (Sticky One), very clear-headed (Shining Body), and thrumming with the life of the universe (Sacred Dove). This is the best I’ve felt in over a month.
Scratch that. Several months.
I have a rehearsal at 2pm today, and I actually feel confident about it. About my body doing what I need it to do, when I need it to do it.
I think this means the verdict on Devotional Dance — just as something to do that I enjoy, nevermind the awesome connectedness to all life that I feel — is GREAT SUCCESS.
