The Balanced Choreography of Energy wheel describes the most balanced way to use energy. Why do we as humans want to be balanced? Think about the ways we experience stress, pain, fatigue, anxiety, worry in our bodies, our minds, our emotions and within our spirit on a daily basis.
We know when we don’t flow, and we inherently know when there is something off. We are walking out of balance and, therefore, can’t determine how to best choreograph the dance that is our life.
In the Sweet Medicine SunDance path, the Balanced Choreography of Energy is a wheel and movement around the circle of directions that help remind us what we naturally need to do to be in balance and harmony with all aspects of ourselves.
If we could master this balanced choreography of giving with the emotions, holding and transforming with the physical body, receiving with the mind, determining with spirit and open, heart-to-heart sexual communication, we would be walking around this planet in balance and harmony with all things.
In the West, we hold with the physical body with intimacy. This does not, however, mean to hold as in hold on tight. It is holding in the sense of transforming energy for stability, endurance and use.
Think of it as an electrical cord. The body is the structure through which electrical energy moves like a conduit, and provides the transformed energy to turn on the fan, work a toaster, or move the body parts.
Therefore, when we hold and transform with our physical bodies, we are in the energetic flow.
