VOTE!

Tomorrow, November 2 is the Day of the Dead. The day we all gather to honor our ancestors. To meditate and remember them. To ask for clarity on our path, strength on our decisions, for courage and support for our integrity.

Our life, our existence, is the result of thousands of other humans before each of us that in many ways struggled, fight, cried, laughed and made love to each other so to continue our species and to persevere on an invisible journey toward a mysterious direction.

Our struggles continue and we still are in many ways in a very primitive and savage phase as humans, sadly so in an otherwise amazing possibility to live in a glorious heaven, to all get along peacefully and enjoy this fabulous planet and the wonder of human intelligence.

We all come from a long lineage of barbaric conflicts and cultures and some steps have been done to get in a true harmony with earth and with each other but in this moment it seems to me that we are actually slipping back into a dark and muddy slope. A tidal wave of stupidity and greed is looming at the horizon.

So much we can do, so much we do so much we don't. One thing for sure I keep doing is dancing.

Dancing helps our bodies, our minds and our hearts. It's a good medicine for solitude and for moments of hopelessness. It's a way to celebrate our life and our unity.

Dancing is magic and invigorating. Transformational and supportive.

Let's keep dancing, let's keep being together. Let's honor our lives and our ancestors.

And on November 6 in the US, let's not give up our power. Let's go to vote for a better new world. 

We'll become one day the ancestors of this generation and we want to be celebrated by our survivors, in a better, more just and cleaner world, because we made a difference and believed in the possibility of true evolution. Let's be remembered as peaceful, strong warriors, paladin and dancers of Love.

This Fall I Fell In Love

Fall Heart.jpg

'Fall In Love With Your Heart' was the title of my very first Heartbeat workshop I was honored to facilitate. And here, in the beautiful Columbia Gorge, surrounded by rivers, waterfalls, mountains, trees, colorful autumn leaves and together with other 44 amazing hearts I adventured in a three days journey through the 5Rhythms map of the emotions.

"In the empty space between the beats of our hearts rest the essence of our deepest emotional being. A heart that surrenders to its feet fills a body that moves in its essential rhythmic beat." Jonathan Horan

And I, we, explored that empty space.

We walked. We danced. We screamed. We cried. We laughed. We stepped in with our humbleness and vulnerability, showing ourselves openly and witnessing the others, with gratitude and full attention in a safe and welcoming space. Together. In sacred unity. Guided and supported by commune intents, reciprocal trust, deep respect and care for each and everyone's courageous heart that embarked in this journey.

So I also did (again and again) fall in love with my heart. 

I did have the opportunity to offer my own vulnerability, my imperfection, my full presence and my learning. And to navigate through this map trusting my feet, my breath and the rhythm of my heart. 

How can one not fall in love with his/hers/their hearts? And be fascinated by it? And desiring to take good care of it? And be inspired. And feel. Feel. Feel. Feel. Everything. 

And that. Of course. It's just the first step in our conscious life's journey. Moving towards Love for another. Towards Love for All. Toward Spirit.

Grateful for you all. Stepping forward. With more Love in my Heart. Ready to share it all. Again and again.

"Dance to fall in love with the spirit in all things." Gabrielle Roth

May Day Many Meanings

FORZA DELICATA blog.jpg

Today is May Day that is referred in northern hemisphere as traditional spring holiday, and in many cultures and traditions as the ancestral celebrations of spring into summer and many pagans variations of it. "Dances, singing and cake are usually part of the festivities." -from Wikipedia

May 1st is also international day honoring workers and that is something that might be seen as too close to socialistic tendencies to have it moved officially to labor day.

"Mayday" also is a code for request for help in distressed situations.

Many meanings that I would actually condense together in a moment of communal reflection.

It's great for our spirits and our bodies to tune with the change of the seasons. It's a wonderful moment to actually enjoy the nature around us, in this time of the year, in the northern hemisphere, when flowers are blooming and all the energy accumulated in the ground is bursting out with all the possible vital enthusiasm.

It's very much a great day to honor all the honest hard workers in the world. And in particular to extend extra gratitude and to pledge support to the ones that perform the most humble tasks, at the lowest, and sometime unfair wages.

And to send a Mayday to the Universe asking for a breath of sanity to refresh the heart and soul of so many individuals that have lost the memory of the concept of the unified field that has held us all together, animals, plants, elements.

May we start re-thinking of the way we treat each other and the Planet.

May we bring in way more compassion, respect and love for each other.

May we really believe in peace.

Imagine that.

Words, words, words. I'll celebrate today with all of that in mind, now and I will be dancing and offering my heart to it. Would you join me?
