I prepared the room as always with lights, candles and a selection of music which felt right for the moment. A small uncertainty crept up just moments before the class started. Will someone come today? My classes are new, and I’m still building my tribe in Berlin. So, far It hasn’t happened that no one has shown up, but no one ever knows. Maybe this will be the day that I dance alone.
I hear a knock. “Hello, Welcome” – I say.
There is a moment of hesitation. “It’s just you and me today. We have the whole room and each other to explore. Let’s have fun”.
It wasn’t difficult. She took my invitation and went fully into exploration.
She was very sensitive and familiar with her body. I didn’t have to urge or explain how she should connect to her body. We started to communicate immediately without words.
After two hours of dynamic dialogue, I felt as if I had known her for a long time, even though we had never spoken before.
She said, “I was attracted to your flyer that said, ‘Moving with Desires’.
I’m so full of emotions, and I don’t know what I want. I don’t know what my truth is.”
I took a breath and I thought to myself, yes – it can be very confusing when your heart is speaking loudly, and your mind wants to wander. I know that place. I’ve been there. It used to be so hard for me to answer, “What do I want in my life, what do I want for myself?” Trying to find the answer to that question was like hitting my head against a wall.
When we disconnect with ourselves and allow our minds to take control, we punish ourselves . We might experience a disconnect that is hard to name or describe.
How can you stop it? Get out of your mind, let go and have the courage to listen to your heart!
Desire speaks directly about what it wants. It doesn’t say, “I don’t want that, or maybe I want this.” Desire is positive and unapologetic. This, it says. “I want this. I won’t settle for less than what I want.”
“Desire is the messenger of the soul. If you trust it, listen to it, respect it when it arises, and act on it, it will lead you to become the person you want to be – the person you truly are”. Hiro Boga
Connect to your body, dance, let your thoughts flow, listen carefully to the wisdom of your heart. – You know.
Next Friday April 10th the floor is open for you! Come to the next class Moving with Desires and see what will arise.
