Today, during my movement practice I was surprised by the sudden rage I felt to a seemingly sweet song by P!nk.
Her and her daughter sang “Cover me with sunshine” while I found myself wanting to punch a wall.
I dug deep into my muscles – the way I’ve learned to release energy – and before I knew it I was on the floor weeping.
I was weeping for the loss of innocence.
In all of us.
With the veil truly lifting on all the darkness in the world, we are being faced with a loss of innocence – collectively.
We are being asked to do such deep shadow work in this moment of history that we’ve had to grow up and sober up real fast.
Every day is arduous work.
To stay regulated.
To stay updated.
To stay connected.
And so my body would like to remind you today to do 2 things:
1. Make space to grieve the loss of our innocence (which may include wanting to punch a wall because you don’t really want to grow up.)
2. Make space to bring it back with play, with silliness, with sweetness, with unabashed love.
Because that will be the most revolutionary thing you can do right now.
To recalibrate the duality.
To embrace the polarity.
To balance out the disillusion with innocence.
*Oh and to clarify….I’m not suggesting you ACTUALLY punch a wall. If you need to punch something, punch a pillow.
