Let's talk about PLAY!
Play is a powerful catalyst to move energy through our physical bodies.
For me, physical movement is more than taking care of my body. It’s a body, mind and spirit embodiment.
It wasn't always a priority!
For many years, I didn’t prioritize play. I actually judged it quite harshly. I thought that being playful meant that I wasn’t acting my age and that people wouldn’t take me seriously, as a professional, if I showed my playful side.
I don’t need to tell you that those years truly lacked joy. The more I pushed against allowing myself the opportunities to play and be playful, the deeper my whole self fell into despair.
More than that, when I limited the joy that was available to me, I limited how much I could truly come into connection with myself. I limited how much love I flowed to others. I was living an unfulfilled life, in many ways.
Then everything changed.
My son went through a serious health crisis and it launched me on a journey to find the most authentic version of myself. (PS - It’s an ongoing work in progress!!)
I found that movement equaled play. Strength felt empowering. There was joy awakened in me that I’d never been able to access.
The more I play, the more I feel the aliveness within me. It allows me to detox the energies of the day and come into a deeper connection with my inner-knowing.
And it feels SO good!
How do you allow PLAY to show up in your life?
