On the morning of Sunday, June 12th, at my coaching class, the ±70 of us in the class spread out in a large circle around the perimeter of the huge room we met in, sitting on mats or cushions or in chairs on the ground, with backs on them. After a guided group meditation, our instructor put on a song - inviting us to sing along, as 'the lyrics are simple'.
I sat in one of those on-the-ground chairs, but sitting upright in a seated mediation position. Relaxed, from the mediation - so relaxed.
The song began, easy drums, a female voice I liked immediately. Then ... that rhythm, that sensual, sultry, funky, bluesy rhythm. I began noddin' & boppin' in place, and very quickly couldn't contain it. I stood up, stepped back behind my chair, behind the group, and closed my eyes.
I danced. I danced with the rhythm, the relaxation, the connection, with my SELF. I danced, all sensual and sultry and bluesy and funky. I danced my rhythm. I danced my vibration. I grooved. I forgot everything else, until about 90 seconds in, when I cracked my eyes and noticed 3 or 4 other women, in the center of the circle, getting their own groove on.
It was ... A Moment. I sang along with the entirety of me, body and soul and heart and vibration and emotion. It was inspired & divine & easy & perfect - and it was mine.
