One of the most important lessons I've learned is that life is a dance.
Sometimes you lead and sometimes you follow. When you lead, you do it gently, firmly and clearly, and when you follow, you do so with trust.
The amazing thing is that each one of us is involved in many dances at any one time - and we are the leader in some and the follower in others!
Some dances are slow and majestic and others are crazy and frenetic and still others are somewhere in between.
Some last a lifetime - others are over almost as soon as they begin.
Most of the time we manage not to fall flat on our faces, which is even more amazing and requires some pretty fancy footwork.
And sometimes we do trip up or our toes get squashed and we get hurt - but the important thing is to keep on dancing - no matter what.
Just keep dancing!
Even if you can't hear the music or you just don't don't feel like it or you have acquired two left feet, keep on dancing!
Reminds me of the words of a Garth Brooks song: 'Our lives are better left to chance. I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance.'

Today I placed an angel stone on the energy share list. For each of you there will be an angel dancing in your energy field to give you all the energy you need. The gentle and soothing boost will flow continuously for the rest of the week. Thank you for being a part of the share and all you do as healers and friends. I joyfully acknowledge the boost of energy from you and welcome it with open arms.
And speaking of dancing...my sister and her husband enjoyed their first dance as husband and wife at their wedding earlier this month and came back recently from their honeymoon in Puerto Vallerta. I remembered my vacation there years ago with 2 of my friends from my former hula school and mentioned my fun experience. I guess they were inspired by it so, after a brief hiccup with a travel visa, they headed south and had a fantastic time.
Enjoy the previous posts - I think you'll enjoy the latest Beacon of Light from Steve and Barbara Rother. Relish every moment and live the passionate life you intend it to be.
Namaste (I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells),
