These eight inch high pair of red Pleasersare one of my favorites. When ‘eye’ put them on, She Ba, my alter dance ego, transcends and ‘eye’ am no longer responsible for that vixen – because red shoe diaries become real ….
sometimes you gots to try new shiFt. it is why we are here – as spirit in these ‘hueman’ bodies – to explore new thangs.
i started poling when i turned 50 years old. my mind kept telling me ‘eye’ was crazy – and that i was too old and it was to late to be taking up such a strenuous and yes, taboo ‘sport.’
but thanks to meditation – ‘eye’ know how to quiet my rambling mind and listen to my spirit – so i continued on with my seemingly crazy pursuit. i clearly remember being so exhausted from my daily training – that i would wake up every morning and literally – not be able to move. waking up so many new muscles had me feeling like i had been hit by a train. but my vision was bigger than my soreness.
today at 54, i am mastering my pole technique and have incorporated aerial hammock and aerial hoop ( lyra ) into my practice. and my body ‘thAnkhs’ me for it!
but we are unlimited beings in an unlimited ‘you-niverse’ – and there is always and all ways new shiFt to explore.
being in the aerial community, i happened upon a new exercise regimen called Silkstream. per their facebook page:
“Silkstreme creator Rachel Bowman of @womackandbowman dreamed of a workout that could combine the physical benefits of Pilates and Barre (core, legs, butt) with the exhilaration and freedom (and awesome upper body toning! ) that she experienced as an Aerial artist…”
i am finding that i am loving what silkstreme is doing to my body, mind and spirit. it is toning me, defining my physique even more and lending me incredible strength and stamina as i continue to pursue pole and aerial arts.
yes, sometimes you have to try new ‘shiFt’ …. your soul will love you for it!
