On our journeys it is easy to feel solitary. We can feel as though we are the only person facing this struggle and that it is up to us to soldier on, alone. This is an untruth. Whether you believe it or not, there is spirit or energies constantly circling us, just waiting for us to request their help, their power. Many aboriginal cultures believe that the spirits of our grandfathers and grandmothers are stored in the trees, herbs and animals hat cover the landscape. What if this is true, and we can tap into our ancestors strength when we are facing a tough problem? Think about the internet. We can connect with people across the world in seconds. This is a simple way to understand the flow of energy we are lucky to have.
When I sing or dance, I can often feel connected to these ancient spirits, as though I have opened a portal through creativity and movement. Up until one year ago, I was not able to notice these things, but I now feel part of something bigger. I feel part of the great spirit that surrounds us. It takes a bit of risk, of surrender, before we can open ourselves enough to the possibility of an energy larger than our small bodies. No matter where you are on your journey, may you know that you are never alone.
