Bustin’ A Move — Roth Five Rhythms Style

It’s 4 am quiet here. But, I’m whispering this so loud you can probably feel my vibes in Denmark , yes?

Today’s moving day…..   in other words, I can’t sit still. So, I’m not even about to try.  The energy within me stirs, as the energy around me stirs. We’ve got big  plans for a big constant MOVE that will take our family around the country and eventually around the world.

Sounds major, huh?

It is. We will be combining my autism healing practice with our life coaching and energy healing, and  bringing the whole shabang to a city near you — so that we can hug you, support you and dance in the streets with you.

One major lesson I’ve learned through improving my life and helping clients  is that our inner world is a complete reflection of the realities around us. Our bodies physically and emotionally react to the energies we surround ourselves in — for better or for worse.

In planning a move, I realize I gotta move my butt. If I want things to go smoothly, I gotta make sure everything flows smoothly in this temple.

Have you guys discovered the Roth Five Rhythms, yet? Holy Shnap! is this practice beyond words amazing!  I teach them to  nearly every client and use them daily in my life.

Everyone’s natural rhythm is unique and will also probably change. Gabrielle’s Five Rhythms take us through every emotion, every natural element, every chakra, every body part — and shake it all up. In the end, we come to stillness — and this is where major healing and refection can take place.

Stillness totally rocks. But, I am one who believes that we can MOVE into stillness and receive tons of benefit on the way there.

You don’t need rhythm to do the Roth Five.  You don’t need grace. In fact, as I do them more and more – I find mine.

The rhythms go like this:

  • Flowing (flowy, watery never ending movement) : Represents the water element and emotion of fear
  • Staccato (start and stop motion, like punching or stomping): Represents the earth element and the emotion of anger
  • Chaos (wild movement with no plan): Represents the fire element and saddness
  • Lyrical (airy, breezy movement, like skipping, fluttering):  Represents the air element and  joy
  • Stillness (what does this mean to you?): Represents space and compassion

Each rhythm helps work you up from root to crown chakra, clearing out energy blocks and helping you feel centered. I am so grateful for my shamanic training, because this movement has been absolutely necessary for our health, and now I get to share it with you. Movement therapy has helped Dougie  feel comfortable and grounded in his body, and we  even use it for brain development.

Gabrielle Roth has a book called “Maps to Ecstasy”, and another called “Sweat Your Prayers”, which do a fabuloso job of helping you teach your body to remember its natural state of BLISS, by moving into it.

So, tell me, are you gonna bust a move today? What tunes will you play? Will you sing too, like at the top of your lungs? I hope it’s that kind of amazing day for you too.

Sweet Vibes,
