Across generations, backgrounds, colours, shapes and sizes

We were singing along…shaking booty… with P!nk.

The atmosphere was electric.

People from all walks of life were connected.

Because when lyrics, melody and rhythm tap into the soul…

… it transcends barriers.

It’s the power of a universal language.

And there’s no mistaking the energy it releases.

When plugged into something that connects minds, hearts and bodies:

That’s flow.

Could we … approach Life… the same way?

Imagine tuning into your thoughts, feelings and sensations

Imagine knowing your inner ‘lyrics’… your thoughts and beliefs well enough…

… so you’re not caught off-guard and sabotage yourself?

Knowing emotional ‘triggers’ well enough

… so you’re able to appropriately express yourself without getting flooded or losing-it?

Knowing your body’s signals well enough

… so you can read it’s signs and learn to ‘self-soothe’ and take action before it’s too late?

In 2004, I tuned in and cranked up the volume

(Illness – is a great wake-up call)

By connecting to my inner ‘lyrics’

… shame, guilt, grief, fear, desire, anger and pride…

I released emotions

… humiliation, blame, despair, regret, anxiety, hate and scorn.

By paying attention to subtle sensations within me,

I made better choices… each moment, day, week, month, year.

It wasn’t easy. But with right support, courage, practice, patience and persistence:

I am here.

As P!nk says, I’ve already seen the bottom so I’ve nothing to fear

Life… like music.. is about connection.

Tap into your thinking, feeling and sensations,

and you tap into flow.

And when you touch Freedom, Acceptance, Trust, Optimism, Forgiveness, Love, Joy and Peace…

… there’s no mistaking the energy it releases.

The atmosphere is electric.
