This time we talk about dance! Aaaa I am starting to smile just by mentioning that word, it’s such a powerful practice for me. Which is why I’d like to share 3 ways in which you can use dance to bring more joy and empowerment to your life.
– Dance teaches us how to commit. It shows us how to stop trying and give our best right here, right now. I believe there is no right or wrong movement in dance – what makes a difference is our choice to remain unsure about how we move or to fully commit to what we are doing. Once we learn how to do it in dance, we have a clear benchmark of how it feels to give our absolute best, so we can embody it in other things we do.
– We can create a powerful anchor for joy with dance that can help us lift our spirit up on demand. Dance has the power of relieving pressure and bringing joy and happiness to our lives. Which makes it a perfect candidate for creating an anchor. Try this: hold the fingers of one of your hands in a certain position and recall a moment when you felt really happy dancing (or doing something else). Repeat this daily for 10 days. What you get at the end is a powerful trigger – just by holding your hand in this specific position you will be able to experience the joy and happiness from a past experience in the present moment, on demand. How awesome is that?
– Through dance, we can learn how to express with flow & confidence regardless of who is around. This holds true especially for Ecstatic Dance and Contact Improv where you get out of your comfort zone and practice expressing yourself in front of others without alcohol, talking, choreography and the safety of your group of friends. Coming back in Cluj I missed those kinds of dances so much that I found myself dancing during my walks. And with that came the awareness that we can also use dance to inspire and invite others to express themselves more in public. Or get labelled as crazy. Or both 🙂

About Lessons in Paradise
I believe we already are in paradise, regardless of where we are and what’s going on in our lives. I believe life is a journey towards becoming aware of this and enjoying as much of it as we can in the limited amount of time we have here. The ‘Lessons in Paradise’ vlog is the space where I share my process of shedding patterns and beliefs that obstruct our view in order to replace them with presence, awe and wonder. It’s also my invitation to you – an invitation to connect and journey together by sharing what we are going through and helping each other see through to the greatest expression of ourselves. Drop me a line or comment below or on youtube – I’d love to hear how what I’m sharing relates to your experience.
