There is a little rhyme that goes:
Two prisoners looked through the bars One saw dirt, the other saw stars.
What this story seems to imply is an either/or situation. One either sees dirt (or the negative in life) or one sees the stars (or the positive in life). My question is: Who
is this person and why are they in jail?
Most of us have at one point in our life felt imprisoned. And what we often do not realize is it is a prison of our own making. We are both the jailer and the prisoner. And we hold the key to our escape. Do you feel like you hold the key to your prison? Your prison is a program or belief about life, often given to you by parents/grandparents, religions, institutions, and especially your culture. You may not know exactly what the false belief systems are, but you’ll know you have them when you experience:
• The feeling of being stuck
• The perception of not being in control of a situation • A physical issue such as pain or fatigue
• Stress, overwhelm
The cool thing is that we hold our own solution. It is inside of us. We hold the key to getting ourselves out of these prisons.
Everything in life is energy. Energy has a vibration and resultant frequency. These patterns guide and influence every aspect of our lives. Even solid things are mostly space. This space occurs between the elemental atoms and molecules that make up our bodies, our physical environment, and beyond. We can influence these frequencies through music, our thoughts, movement, our breath, and in so many other ways.
Everything changes when you start to listen to your body’s wisdom!
The pillars of traditional healing are (according to Dr. Bruce Perry in the book, “What Happened to You?” co-authored with Oprah Winfrey):
1) Connection to clan and the natural world;
2) Regulating rhythm through dance, drumming, and song;
3) A set of beliefs, values, and stories that brought meaning to even senseless, random trauma; and
4) On occasion, natural hallucinogens or other plant-derived substances used to facilitate healing with the guidance of a healer or elder.
This methodology can be used in private, group or corporate settings, in person or online. Movement can be done as a dance, standing, or sitting in a chair; however a person is inspired. The music creates a backdrop for the guided meditations. Artistic methods are used to integrate and summarize the sensory experience.
