To integrate the Earth & Star elements within our own beings.
Earth-Star Dance by Omashar.
Music for the EARTH-STAR DANCE: Now available on CD or Download!
Time: 33 minutes.
Earth-Star Dance symbolizes the Sacred Union between Earth & Star
which takes place within the core of our beings. Each of us is composed
of both Earth Being and Star Being. When we can fully express our merged
polarities, we are ready to unite into even greater conscious Oneness.
The powerful Earth-Star Dance enables us to do that.
Be prepared to be
uninhibited, to look weird, to throw yourself into this wondrous dance
as you activate parts of yourself you haven't felt before. All your
movements should be emphatic, almost exaggerated, while you bring alive
the energies of Earth & Star. The more you EMBODY these primal energies,
the more you will be transformed.
Before you begin
this dance, choose a partner. Take a good look at the feet of your partner
because this is how you will find them later on in the dance.
ONE: EARTH BEINGS
The music begins
with the deep, pulsating rhythm of the primordial Earth Beings who live
beneath the surface of the planet. We dance by ourselves with a heavy,
stomping motion, first with one foot, then with the other, low to the
ground with knees bent. Earth Beings feel the heavy weight of gravity
and ALWAYS look only at the ground. With each step, the Earth Being
merges deeper into the Earth; stepping heavily, breathing heavily, they
are of the Earth.
The Earth Beings
make low, grunting noises or growls while they dance. Their hands are
curled up in fists or paws. Remember: Earth Beings only look downwards!
TWO: STAR BEINGS
Soon, the music changes
to the lighter rhythm of the Star Beings who rotate gracefully with
arms uplifted to the sky, eyes ALWAYS looking upwards, with an expression
of unbridled joy and ecstacy. They are light as a feather, elongated,
barely touching the ground. When the music changes, we all become Star
Star Beings make sounds of bliss, delicate songs of lightness.
Each time the music
changes, all the dancers shift between embodying Earth Beings or Star
THREE: FINDING YOUR PARTNER
After about 5 minutes,
there will be a noticable change in the music as a flute-like (or is
it bells?) sound is introduced. This signifies that it is now time to
find your partner. (During Phase One and Two, you should stay fairly
close to each other & recognize each other by your feet while you
dance as Earth & Star Beings.) You join your partner by taking hold
of each other's left forearm. You will grasp their arm right below the
elbow. Earth Beings will hold onto their partner with a heavy grip while
Star Beings will hold on very lightly.
OF YOU WILL NOW BE AN EARTH BEING AND THE OTHER WILL BE A STAR BEING.
(This means that one of you will be dancing to the appropriate
music, and the other will not.) You need to choose this either beforehand
or in an instant.
And don't forget
to make the sounds of the Earth & Star Beings while you dance.
is VERY IMPORTANT that you NEVER look at your partner during this phase
of the dance. Each time
the music changes, the partners will switch positions, letting go of
their partner's forearm and changing arms. The Earth Being rises up
and effortlessly becomes a Star Being while the Star Being will slowly
sink downwards and become an Earth Being.
FOUR: THE SACRED MERGER
After a further 7
minutes or so---which will seem like an eternity if you are putting
everything you have into this dance---the music will change yet again,
opening up and becoming quite celestial. As soon as the music begins
to change, we stop dancing and remain in position as either Earth or
Star. VERY SLOWLY we let go of our partner's forearm and the Earth Beings
go deeper into the Earth while the Star Beings rise higher into the
VERY IMPORTANT TO TAKE YOUR TIME DURING THIS PART AND REALLY FEEL IT!
You can take ten minutes for this phase of the dance if you like.
Then the Earth &
Star Beings begin to feel their first impulse of massive change.
A deep yearning washes through you, calling the Earth Beings to rise
upwards into the Unknown. At the same time, the Star Beings feel something
pulling them downwards to a place where they have never been before.
Very slowly, the
Earth Beings begin their journey upward towards the stars while the
Star Beings feel the urge to descend into matter. Ever so gradually,
you are being drawn into the Unknown.
After awhile, you
become aware that you are not alone, sensing the physical presence of
another being so very different from you. This is an amazing revelation.
PLEASE TAKE YOUR TIME, as a major transformation is taking place in
the core of your Being. This experience will be as deep as you allow
it to be.
Until this moment,
neither of you was aware of the existence of the other. You are amazed
that such an incredible being could ever exist. This is the strangest
being you have ever seen. The first contact between you can be a light
touch or a fleeting glance. The first eye contact will often feel excruciating,
so let it happen slowly and gently. A fear of the Unknown soon gives
way to a sense of wonder as you open up more and more to your partner.
You are merging Earth & Star into full Sacred Union, until you finally
become One Unified Earth-Star Being.
FIVE: THE ONE HEART WALTZ
The now complete
Earth-Star Beings raise their arms into the One Heart position and slowly
dance from side to side as One. (You can step to the left with your
left foot, then bring the right foot closer to the left foot. Next,
you can step to the right with the right foot, then bring the left foot
closer to the right foot. And keep on repeating these steps.) Your upraised
hands are slightly apart with fingers aligned, but not touching.
THE KEY IS TO BE
DELICATE AND SUBTLE, serenely rejoicing in the feeling of sublime Sacred
The partners now
gently dance away from one another, going backwards and thereby expanding
their Oneness, feeling their One Heart as a great pool of shared Essence.
AVOID STRONG EYE CONTACT at this time as it will only weaken the energy
of the One Heart. Concentrate on the pool of your One Heart.
It is now time to
randomly change partners, aligning as One Being with whomever you encounter
until you all become One Vast Earth-Star Being. Once this is achieved,
we can move freely amongst each other in the One Heart position, softly
splashing love over one another.
Second EARTH-STAR DANCE:
The Earth-Star Dance
takes about thirty minutes and should be danced twice whenever possible.
If you wish, you can begin the dance at Phase Three when the partners
come together. Choose the same partner and make sure that you start
Phase Three as the opposite being to the one in which you completed
the first dance. (For example, if you finished the previous dance as
an Earth Being, you would now begin Phase Three as a Star Being.) This
lets you experience both of your polarities.
