Vulnerability and Dance
This week’s theme is Aparigraha- non-greed. To stay in-line I can’t keep all this dancing goodness to myself. This song is “Lotus Flower” by Radiohead (I do not own the rights, giving credit where credit is due) and since I wore my concert shirt today you are getting a minute of a free form dance that I hope would make Thom Yorke proud.
Lyrics: “There's an empty space inside my heart where the weeds take root. So now I set you free, I set you free.”
I call myself Blissful Butterfly because my life has been a road of metamorphosis. I came from a dysfunctional family, have had a long line of dysfunctional romantic relationships and handfuls of dysfunctional behaviors/coping mechanisms over the years. I studied psychology in college, spent 13 years hands on in behavioral/relationship-based therapy with preschoolers with Autism, practiced yoga for 18 years and have almost 1,000 hours of Yoga Teacher Training hours. All of the education on child development and spirituality has paid off in boundless ways. Specifically, within the past 4 years I have gone from a shell of a human being who lost my sense of self when I lost- a fiancé, a home, step-kids, job and car - to living on my own, single for over a year, building an online yoga business, 6 months away from being a Certified Yoga Therapist and nannying with 2 families. I literally rebuilt myself from the ground up. I learned how to face all the heartache and know that those heartbreaks were where the light was getting in. Now I shine brighter than ever. Transformation is possible- it just takes time, effort, love and compassion for yourself at each step along the way. I decided 4 years ago that I was worth fighting for and for the first time in my life I chose myself as the most important person in my life. I hope every being finds a deep love for themselves so that they can be the best version of themselves possible. We can only give to the world generously when we are full ourselves. I am so happy to have given myself this gift of healing so that I can show up in this world and shine my light. Posting this in hopes that it finds all the people it was meant to. Sending deep love.
