    Default Dance!



    Everyone who is about to read this knows well enough what I am about to say. It just seems the opportunity to say this is coming around a lot right now, and, well, it could only do us more good to hear it ( again ). To keep hearing it – until we either finally do get on with it, or simply let it be the validation and enhancement to what we are indeed already getting on with. We simply have to get moving. We have to move more. Even if we think we move plenty right now, we have to move more. Movement has never been so important. Times have changed. We live in a mostly indoor, sedentary, computer driven age. So we have to somehow creatively push through this.

    I don’t often talk about myself in the everyday sense of what it is like to be a person living in Earth space in present time, generally I find it neither necessary nor interesting but I am going to do a bit of this now. For more than a decade I have been working with a chronic myalgia in my shoulders, neck and back of the head. I know a lot of us are working with various body ailments, aches and pains these days. Not just fibromyalgia, – autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases are rampant. As a naturopathic minded person, my essential “medicines” for staying fit, or at least as well and fit as possible are the basic essential elements :

    Sunshine, water, movement, the breath and love.


    When it comes to movement,

    Dance seems to come into a category all its own, doesn’t it? There really is nothing else that spans the expanse of the full spectrum of being, quite like dance. And that it generally is inclusive of the use of music makes it all the more far reaching. All the more powerful and uplifting. The frequencies up here, I feel truly are capable of healing all ails. I was born in the 60s which makes this body near to 60 years old now. I carry myself heavy and am no Goldie Hawn on my feet but I do glean the magical and mysterious ways of dance and I know it can help me overcome my pain.



    Now there is a reason why right now I am sitting here, typing, bringing DANCE into limelight and front of our attention. It is a curious experience that occurred back in 2017, when David Bowie, shortly after his passing began intersecting with me in out of body states.


    Quote David Bowie. Sandy. G. -others who are newly passed, infirm, injured, disabled, needing care. I am magnetically being called in to Bowie by a strong force. (highly pleasant). I note he is wearing white pants, no other clothing. My people are always dressed in stark white like this, like Meshahare and the others when they come. He has a male person who is working with him, working with his body, seeing to his bodily state of being. I am drawing in to this position, attracting to it, when he introduces us—me to him, and we shake hands. Combine. (I have lost the name. too much data in the event and which I am about to find is prophetic). Bowie is bringing my own bodily state of being to my attention. There is the suggestion to move more. In particular, to dance. This is enacted in an additional frequency within the event.

    Somehow, somewhere within my soul template I connect with the one who we knew here on the planet as David Bowie. He, for some reason made the connection with me and the connection remains both present and intact. He is the one who tells me I need to move, not just move but DANCE. I am hearing and feeling the need to pick up on, align and be moved onto my feet more by these transmissions. To get up and dance. While dancing tune to the guidance which suggests that as a more regular, if not daily practice we can, if the focus is correct begin to ameliorate what is causing my shoulder-neck-and-head pain. It is at such a level that I am motivated to have a whirl. The work will be in growing this motivation into the constructing of, and discipline to daily practice. This is me beginning the construction ( even ) as we speak.

    I want to invite everyone along into this as well. Into just getting up and dancing. It may not be an every day thing, but I think you will notice if motivated to do this even just once, even for just a minute or two you will find you are glad that you did. Life is pretty serious out there right now. Let’s help balance this by creating little light and uplifting moments that help put perspective back in order. Anytime you feel contrary to the way you feel when you dance, it is time to wiggle those toes, shuffle those feet, shake those hips and shimmy those shoulders. Be honest, you smiled reading that last line, right? – ride the wave of those little joy bubbles, put on some music,

    AND DANCE!

    yes to all

    Anyone wants to up health to next level, movement is not enough. gotta do some cardio. I do basketball, jog walk sprint, swimming, dancing, singing and biking. I'm not good at any of them does not matter.

    good thing about singing and sometimes dancing is that I can do it while working

    What I want to know is if you two who posted the excellent DANCE songs actually got up to dance to the them before posting? ( I did !! ). That would have bee a fun recording, hahahaha.. I can remember a day when I was a teenager singing Safety Dance to the radio while in the tub. Right after it Hotel California came on. I could never really figure out those lyrics when I was a kid but I knew they were important.

    Older boodies also need to do some stretching , dynamic yoga hanging on the bar or anything that makes the pieces supple.

    I was at the live band dance party last night. there are lots of beer But I palyed basketball this morning. I use to do this routine with no problems. Problems arise when all beers and no excercise. So yeah I guese if more beers then also more excercise.

    Yes I certainly agree with the stretching, Bubu.. I tend to be good there and am still somewhat bendy. We all need to pay better attention to the body, we have gotten quite lax as a society. I would highly recommend not waiting until the body begins giving pain signals to begin. But once it does, surely diving in to see what more we can do to help alleviate whatever may be happening is prudent. Is anyone else out there working with pain? chronic pain? deeper diagnosis? What are you working with and how are you coming at it? There really is so much we can do to potentially reverse and even erase pain. Let's talk about it.

    Nice sharing! I admire those professional dancers but I do love free dancers.
    Yes, I danced when I was a child in the kindergarten and then I hadn't danced until I was 22 years old when I had the chance to perform on the stage of the 3rd branch of New Oasis for Life in Yunnan, China. I never learned the dancing before and I finished my first dance at that time after five tries...LOL And it let me win the second place in that party.
    I like dancing but I can't remember very clearly about the pace. I am bad in maths. So, I would like to dance with the melody of music.
    I am now learning two dances called Ballet in Spring and Arab Night.

    Ballet in Spring


    Arab Night


    I may make a video about my dancing when I dance them successfully.
    Keep sharing your nice dance, Casey, you dance well and it keeps you beautiful and enegetic.

    I'm having Scenar therapy for chronic fibro and other pains. Early days yet, but for me, its the only answer and makes a helluva lot of sense.

    No matter how much you've discovered there is always something new. I hadn't heard of this therapy before, Mari, I just looked into it a bit. The closest I can come in relative experience is with PEMF, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. I just happened to be working with a client whose daughter worked with the inventor of one of these. The devices were always at the house, I used them on my client but never myself until one day I threw my back out to such a degree I could not walk. It got worse overnight and the next morning Maria finally said for me to sit down with the PEMF device. It was like some kind of miracle. I was not expecting a FULL correction of the problem in just one 10 minute session with the thing but that is exactly what I got. I was never so grateful in my life. I don't know what happened, but it happened. I wish you the same kind of success. Are you still able to move about with your fibromyalgia? Including movement therapies, yoga, DANCE, things that elevate you and lift the mood are incredible therapies in themselves. Going into the GUT is also so helpful. You might incorporate some things like this if you are not already. I would be interested in your process with the Scenar therapy. Have you thought about opening it up as a thread? You could maybe help a lot of people in the process. --Casey.

    I think your interpretation sounds more correct wondering, but according to the lyrics it's safety dance.

    As a fun bit of trivia it's the Chippenham Morris Men you see performing on the video

    Lol I wish! I know about them when I did contracting in that area some years back.
    Specifically while relaxing in the Jolly Huntsman Inn I witnessed them practising their moves in the car park around the back.
    It looked a lot of fun.

    Well any dance will do. Just put on some tunes, feel the music and the beat and move to it. ( hit that record button )

    This thread has really inspired me to move more. One of my favorite songs that I love to dance to is "Best Day of My Life" by the American Authors. I'm making it a personal resolution to play it every day. It can easily be found, sorry I can't post it here like I'd like. It may be the best day of my life, but I am still a tech dummie. ☹️

    Oh good !! good good, this is exactly as I'd hoped it would do ( thank you! ). This, in truth, is how we really change the world. One body system at a time. ( for real ).

    Excellent song to get your groove on. Let's see it. ( whoooo
