To me, dance is magic.  While dancing, the words fall away and I can remember who I am. (And this is true; I often can’t remember words while dancing, as anyone who takes my class knows!)  Dance brings up joy and also buried emotions.  It has gotten me through challenges and it heals my spirit.  It is magic the way dance can bring people together. My parents really seemed in love when they danced together, and I believe those were some of the few moments they really were happy with each other.  Dance allowed them to really “see” one another in a way that was beyond words. 

It was magic.

At the risk of sounding completely childish, I confess that one of my favorite authors is JK Rowling.  There, I said it!  Yes, I love Harry Potter.  I want to BE Harry Potter, or at the very least, Hermione.  I want to enter that world.

I want to go to Hogwarts.

I had a dream where I actually was at Hogwarts and I thought, “What am I doing here? I wish I could do magic!” And then the thought came to me, “I wouldn’t be here if I couldn’t do magic. They wouldn’t have let me come here if I couldn’t do it….….” 

We are all magic.  We are here to do our own brand of magic, or we wouldn’t be here at all. 

What is your magic?

You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t have it.  You know what it is.  You just need to articulate it to yourself. 

Trust it. 

Use it.

You are magic.
