Last night I had a dream about a large old building that was getting ready to be demolished. I’m pretty sure the building represented my old life. I got everything out that mattered and then I watched it fall. When I woke up I started looking through old photos and ran across this picture from two years ago. My husband, a few close friends and I were attending a conference called “Evolving Faith”. That conference marked the beginning of the end for me and it was a last ditch effort to try and hold on to the beliefs that seemed to be crumbling around me.

For as long as I can remember I’ve always been fascinated by the moon and large bodies of water. My earliest spiritual experiences were beholding the beauty of the ocean or laying under the stars on a camping trip. A little over a year ago I started tracking the moon and aligning my life to flow with her cycles. In the process I’ve become even more taken by the fact that no matter how much or how little we see if her in the sky, the tides still come in and go out like clockwork.

Sometimes I feel like I’ve spent most of my life on this never ending quest to find other people like me. Someone with the same spiritual gifts, perceptions, and experiences. Anyone who might speak the same spiritual language that I flow freely in. I think that maybe if I found someone like me, that it would somehow validate my journey, validate me as a person, and make me feel less weird. But I have yet to meet that someone. And what I’m beginning to realize is that I’ve been searching for me this whole time. I’m here on this planet to teach and to share my unique gifts and perspectives. Doing so requires me to use my voice, to come out from behind the curtain, to do hard things. 

Today is the Autumn equinox - one of two days per year when we have equal parts of light and darkness in the sky. After today, the nights get longer and the days get shorter. Some celebrate this day as the first day of Fall, some see it as the beginning of Libra season, and others celebrate Mabon the second harvest. I celebrate ALL those things.

I’m currently an apprentice in the Journey Dance teacher training program. I was drawn to Journey Dance because it seemed so similar to what I had been teaching in the Christian community with prophetic dance and dance ministry.  However, their program isn’t confined to one spiritual path, which is something that was super important to me. I knew there was deep healing power in the work that I had been doing and I wanted it to be accessible to all peoples.
