Creative Expression.  What does it mean to you?

My entire life I have been a dancer.  Moving in some form.  Which is interesting to me when I look back in my childhood I felt lazy (which is entirely different blog).  You can ask my best friend who has known me since I was a child, I was always moving.  In my living room, in my bedroom, in the shower… it  didn’t matter.  There was always a beat to dance to whatever noise was going on even if it was only me humming a tune.

Now that I’m a big, bad adult, creative expression has come and gone sometimes moment to moment and sometimes days to weeks.  I don’t envy those who rely on their creativity to make a living like a tattoo artist or something.  As a massage therapist, there are many creative aspects to my business and I most definitely delve into creative expression on a regular basis.

Today I woke up feeling inspired to tickle that area of my brain.  The best idea I’ve had all day was turn on music.  I know it’s silly but I sometimes forget that MUSIC is such a great way to tap in to the stream of creative energy.  Now I’m moving and feeling connected to others who feel inspired.

I remember the days when I had hours of “free time” to get lost in movement and music.  There is no feeling like it.  To put your feelings in a movement… is the deepest form of communication to another human.  A intentional glance with your eyes and flick of your hip along with tracing the floor with your toe.. says something very specific.

After dancing, my blood is moving and I’m breathing different.  I feel wrung out and a loving, tight squeeze from the Universe.  I feel alive!

GO! Move! Dance your little heart out!
