A Merry Solstice to All! One of my favorite InterPlay forms is DOBO (Dancing On Behalf Of) and in this morning’s Wheeee! tele-fun call, we danced on behalf of where we will invest our attention and energy in the coming year.
The Winter Solstice marks the darkest day of the sun cycle and like the new moon, it’s an opportunity to reflect and then hit the “Reset Button” on our lives through intentionality and action. We humans are creatures of energy and since we are gifted with discernment and higher consciousness, we can invest our energy in making stuff happen locally, in our lives and communities, and in positive support of what we want to transform in our world.
Here we go…putting your left hand in the air, take a breath and sense the connection to your visionary right brain. Breathe into that connection until it feels clear and strong. Now notice your hand’s response to that connection – moving, dancing, shaping, finding stillness. Breathe and sigh again, relaxing into the dance and lightly noticing – you might visit places, people, ideas. Allow any sounds that arise to have voice. After a minute or two, find a place of stillness to end.
Journal to reflect and gather up your experience. Finish your journal entry with a 3-sentence story or by drawing an image.
Now, to ground this vision in the current moment, write down what you are dancing on behalf of this week.
And there’s nothing quite like the power of being witnessed, so I recommend that you communicate this intention to someone you know. Call them up. Have a cup of tea together. Email them if needed. Just make your statement out loud to another human being. To Change Our Lives, We Have To Change Our Practice!
And lastly, I offer a Wordle of all that this morning’s Wheeeee! participants are dancing on behalf of in this new year. Enjoy!
