Sometimes we can't see our unique Life Dance, or Soul Dance, for the mist. Sometimes there are moments when we catch a glimpse and can see the dance more clearly; what seemed like 'going round in circles' actually becomes important steps in following a thread on the way towards a more conscious and authentically witnessed engagement with yourself, the lover of your own dance in your one one wild and precious life. See Soul Dance image below.
Michael White says: "When a caterpillar first begins this transformation, an entirely new kind of cell begins to appear inside the caterpillar that scientists call Imaginal cells. These cells contain the imagining or blueprint of a whole new being. At first as these cells appear, they are attacked and resisted by the caterpillar, but gradually as more of these appear, they grow stronger and begin to cluster together to form the first organs of the new creature. Eventually clusters of cells will form extensions of connective tissue that bridge these small groups of cells into a larger form. The old form literally dies, as a new being is born from within the old." I experience this process with Imaginal cells happening with work l offer people and provide a supportive and encouraging space to be with the discomfort and hope. My experience is that this process is vital both for you and our world as more people go through this process being unhappy with the world as it is right now; this process is happening personally and in our culture.
If you are curious and want to find out more about your self and your Soul Dance (though it may not feel like a dance right now). Give me a howl.
