Dance Mind: Dear Janie, Proud of you!!!
Sanna has been featured in Dance Spirit, Dance Studio Life and Stepping to Sleep has been recommended by Dance Magazine, June/2008.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~You said so many good things in your last post. I will recap and expound on a few now.
1. Thanksgiving. I know that where you live there is no Thanksgiving celebration. How can you take a moment in your day to offer gratitude for what you do have right where you are and back here in the US? This is a good time to remember precious times, ie parties with friends, Thanksgiving dinners as a child, your favorite dish, family events, how far you have traveled in miles AND maturity.
Create your own meal. Teach the dancers where you live now the joy of Thanks - Giving! That would be a really nice experience for you and your new friends! Offer them a piece of our culture. You can start your own traditions. Just as immigrants traveled here to the USA and continued their traditions.
I will be sending love your way tomorrow - and thanks for being here with me and our readers.
2. PREPARING FOR PERFORMANCE. I am so happy to hear that you are tuning into FOODS that nourish your body and mind for performance. We all have different needs, taste and thresholds, yet, if we all ate consciously and powerfully we would be more efficient and successful. Food makes a difference. For those of you who do not think it is important, make a few changes and see what happens!
Even in my work, I know what I can eat (whole simple foods) to be highly intuitive and effective. I plan for it and do not deviate. Just like you, Janie, I owe my best to client who pay me for services. Every sessions demands attention because every session is healing and very empowering.
In the Audition CD program is a review of this and a place where you can put all the foods for performance that work for you ... Pay attention. See how you feel. What works and gives you the energy you need.
Consider - chicken, eggs, grains, fruits and veggies. Lots of water of course. Save the high calorie drinks, burgers, sodas and junk foods for another time.
Stop eating SUGAR! Sugar can increase jumpiness in the body (Central Nervous system takes a huge hit). Memory can be impaired. (YES!) When the body does not feel right then the mind and emotions feel the dis-ease.
Times when I am back stage I see so many cookies and cupcakes. Not to mention weight gain, it is best to stay away from those sweets.
Pay attention! to what you put into your mouth - if you want to perform your best. Diet makes a difference.
I am going to close for now and address the other things later.
I do want to mention that I am gearing up for audition season myself. (as a Performance Specialist!) If you feel worried and afraid, there is no need to feel that away about something you love and live for. If you need assistance to clear out fear so you can be pure power, call me. We can work on the phone. (I have clients all over the country!) There is no reason for you to continue in that way.
Gotta love ya!
