Power! It’s something we all want more of for it’s exhilarating charge, its promise of fulfillment and its relief from victimhood and suffering. Though power looks different for each of us, we all access it through freedom of thought, curiousity, and courage to explore the road less travelled.
Power is often misconstrued as a finite commodity that some have more of than others. Yet suppose all the power you need is already inside you. Perhaps all that’s missing is the courage and hutzpah to get up and dance it?
When you dance, you move your body in a patterned or random combination of movements that’s different from how you usually move. You step out of every day functional ways of body maneuvering into gestures that are artfully, emotionally or sensually inspired. This triggers activity in a different part of your brain, giving access to a creative, body centered wisdom & power otherwise largely untapped.
Dancing literally takes you out of the box of your own limitations, into the limitlessness of your imagination, a profound portal to your personal power. So when in search of more power, just dance it!
