Amp Your Spirit

21 comments

This week a client of mine told me that listening to music, “Amped his spirit.”  This phrasing lingered in my head and I fell hopelessly in love with it. Today I share with you a video that I have watched countless times and each time it amps my spirit.

Hope it amps your spirit!

It features Amanda from Kind Over Matter. I wrote a guest post for her last summer: Kindness Comes From A Heart Without Fear.

Women Heal

When we dwell on our ledge before leaping
When we love ourselves on the way down
When we let our undeniable wildness shine
When we get comfortable being uncomfortable
When we tap into our infectious gusto & ride
When we stand in our integrity sustaining a vibration of love
When we let our strength propel our vision
When we embrace our wild dancing beauty
When we no longer give a f*&^ about what ‘they’ think
When we realize there is no they
When we gather and connect with other women
When we meet our men in the middle
When we raise our fists & fight for what we believe in
When we choose transformation over transaction
When we dig up every single one of our roots and replant them
When we fill our pockets with the paraphernalia of romance
When we lift pen to paper and bleed all over it
When we listen to the voices of the mothers who came before us
When we let our joy guide us
When we aren’t hemmed in by rules
When we dig in & start to snip away to our shambolically-stitched spirits
When we bow to the domino-effect of our surrender
When we are consumed by music & let go
When we do what feels good
When we are devoured by uncontrollable laughter
When we see each other for all we are instead of what we are not
When we embody our divinity
When we love so hard that it sharpens all of our senses
When the back doors of our heart are flung open
When our hearts are spilling over with spirit
When we get deliciously carried away
When we don’t filter our creativity
When we tear down our walls
When we realize that we are all one
When small shuddering bodies grow beneath our skin
When we choose love over fear
When we surrender to the constant give & take
When we immerse ourselves in the jollification of our spirits dancing together
When we notice that we sometimes get in our own way
When we learn to love ourselves through our defeats
When we learn to love the journey more than the results
When we choose progress over perfection
When we let our humanness show
When our courage is unleashed
When we can laugh our asses off at ourselves
When we don’t let mistakes ruin our lives
When we realize it is not about how we fall but how we get up
When we love
When we love
When we love
When we believe in the power of our own healing

Thanks, Amanda for being brave and creative and beautiful.

That was such a lovely video – amped my spirits too Jodi!

I guess it’s the smallest of things that can amp our spirits, provided we are in that right frame of mind and receive things positively and happily too – isn’t it? Yes, in our down times, we need such things for an instant energy booster and it does uplift us instantly. 🙂

Thanks for sharing. 🙂

It sounds silly, but, getting thinks done amps my spirits. Xo

I agree that music can be very uplifting and get me out of funk when I’m in one.

I always forget to use it for this! I must remember!

Thanks, Jodi, for sharing this healing video and the accompanying WOMEN HEAL poem. I especially like the lines: “When we get deliciously carried away; When we embrace our wild dancing beauty; When we let our undeniable wildness shine.”

A beautiful video and poem. Thank you for sharing it! I especially love the line, “When we dig up every single one of our roots and replant them.” It amped my spirit!

Music and watching my cats and other bits of nature amp my spirt and soothe it. Reading poetry does, too.

Her lines are powerful. I love that one, too! Plant them in good soil!

Hi Jodi,
Music definitely has a way of swaying our moods for better or for worse. My taste in music is definitely more refined now. If it makes me feel good and lifts my spirits then it is okay in my book. 🙂

Thanks, Carol! Welcome to Heal Now!

Great video! I’m telling Jodi, there’s a lot to be said for the power of music to heal. Listening to music helped me recover from my divorce. There are certain songs that resonated for me, which I once wrote a post about. And now these songs I have compiled into a playlist on my iPhone. I still enjoy listening to it.

Music has so much power since it taps in to our proverbial mind and memories, straight to our heart. <3

I amp my spirit at my cabin, where I just spent the weekend. I always love the solitude and quiet there.

I remember you mentioning your post at “kind over matter”. Love the video and the verse in your post. Thank you Jodi. I need to find my hoola hoop now.

I love to walk on my terrace watching the sunset, quietly chatting with my son or husband or friend 🙂

This post amped my spirits nicely! Especially since I am not mobile right now!

Excellent post. You really dialed that in. It’s the simple principles that worked for people that have already been where we are heading and desire to be that we should pay close attention to.Thanks for keeping it real and I always look forward to your next post!

This is pretty funny. Airport security…. is Airport security. It doesn’t make sense and unless you want to throw a fuss, you just have to deal with it. Let the children show their viewpoint on the security standards.
