ELEMENTAL FUSION DANCE: WATER I PART II

Play Video

For this 30 minute class, we focus on 2 movement groups within the realm of Water:

~ Figure 8’s and Belly Rolls ~

THE ELEMENT OF WATER AND THE PATH OF LOVE:

Within the Elemental Fusion Dance format, we nurture and sustain our practice with the rejuvenating qualities of water.

Water Part II encapsulates the energies of harmonious development, reciprocity, happy connection and love as reflected in the 2 of Cups Tarot card.

RECIPROCITY:

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”
― John Joseph Powell, The Secret of Staying in Love.

What we put into the the world comes back to us. 

How we treat ourselves shows up in how our bodies and minds give back to us. 

What goes around comes around.

THE FIGURE 8:

The number eight is a symbol for the energetic vibration of personal power, hidden power, shared resources, determination, the pinnacle, recognition of work, rebirth, generation, and transformation.

PREP FOR THIS CLASS:

Please come prepared with your floral essential oil (Jasmine is ideal) and blue or white candle to be ready for our deepening into the realm of Water + smudge, yoga mat, blocks, something to tie around your waist and hydration of choice.

 

 

If you would like to deepen your practice and open the Elemental gate for Water, you can recite the invoking incantation before class:

WATER INCANTATION

(Stand in the posture of Water facing the West within your Temple Space  – Receptive hand at head height like a crescent moon, visualize blue and the fluidity of ocean waves. Projective hand with Natural Athame raised in salute. Shift your conscious connection to your roots dipping into the dimensional aspect of water.)

CALL:

Powers of the West!

Essence of Water!

I summon you to this sacred place. 

Guardians , elementals, undines, merfolk and niksa of the ocean depths!

Be with me now and lend your powers of intuition and emotion.

Open my heart!

Awaken your power of daring and acceptance within me.

Come crashing wave and foggy dusk.

Come glistening dew and river rapids to buoy and carve the way for this magick.

Draw the invoking pentagram of water beginning on the upper left corner and moving to the right, all the way through the star and back to where you started.

Encircle the pentagram deosil (clockwise) unlicking the gate.

Draw the power inward.

Kiss the athame fingers, drawing the essence of water into you.

The portal opens, the circle is flooded with elemental energy and the blue girder encircles your sphere.

Hand over hear, bowing say~

” Water I welcome you with Gratitude. Hail and Welcome.”

FOR CLOSING THE GATE AFTER CLASS:

Face West in the posture of water and say:

Guardians of the West!

“Essence of Water, Undine & Niksa!

I am grateful for your lessons of daring to Love and of Acceptance.

Continue to nurture my heart and Great Work along the Path of Love.

I release you now to your fair and fluid realms.”

See the blue girder recede through the gateway as you draw the banishing pentagram to close the gate begining at the right point, moving left and continue through the star until you reach the right point once again. Draw a circle around it counter clockwise (widdershins). Kiss the tips of your fingers forming your natural athame and thrust any remaining energy out through the gate. Bow and say “Hail & Farewell.”
