I don’t spend a lot of time pretending I’m someone else cause I like who I am. But that has come at a cost. In order to maintain emotional and spiritual stability I have to clean my emotional corners and those sharp edges can really hurt when I bump into them.
As a teenager my drug of choice was music and I was willingly addicted. I’d set my alarm for 5:30am so I could listen to the radio for a full hour before getting dressed for school. I needed the sound to move through me and make me whole.
Years later I would find myself in the middle of a dance floor crammed with people all bouncing to the beat of a favored local band. Again, the music would act as a healing device for my soul. I could really move because I didn’t care what I looked like: it was all about how I felt.
Fast forward to my middle age. I’m a published author and have come out of the psychic closet and am on television showcasing the beauty of the intuitive process. I’m asked to do something charitable, something dance related, something that terrifies me.
I can talk to dead people and not flinch. I can talk to my teenagers and barely flinch. Formal dance I cannot do.
When in December, 2015 I was asked to participate in a fund raiser called Dancing with the Twin Cities Celebrities I said no. No thanks.
On a hunch, I said yes to the dance.
Because of a nudge from a friend on the other side, I agreed to be front and center, under the lights.
I said yes to opening myself up to an insurmountable level of criticism.
And yes to raising money that would aid in finding a cure for the cancer that took my friend out at 37-years-of-age.
I learned some sweet samba moves. I learned some things about me I didn’t much like. My body image, and my self-esteem disagreed with my choice to dance. Really, one could say they revolted. During every single dance lesson that critical part of me sat in the corner,clucking her tongue and shaking her head.
I danced anyway.
And when it came time to dance under the lights some things were intuitively revealed to me that shook me from my perfectly manicured toes to the top of my (borrowed) seven-thousand-dollar sparkly dress. Fear grabbed hold of my throat and darn near tripped my feet.
I danced anyway.
I danced for my dad in celebration of his beating blood cancer. I danced for Colleen who could dance no more and I danced for every single person who has dropped a tear over losing a life or a moment of it because of cancer. I danced for everyone who has battled that critical part of themselves and danced anyway.
