10 Things Being a Cruise Ship Dancer Teaches You About Spirituality

Being a dancer isn’t really a spiritual existence especially on a cruise ship but it provided a huge challenge that really showed the holes in my spiritual practice that we can all work on. Over the last 3 months I have realized 10 useful things that have grown my spirituality by tenfold:

1. Spend time daily outside – never before has it been so easy to stay inside and look insipid. Get outside, make it happen and you will always feel better.
2. Spend time alone – living on top of each other (literally in bunk beds) makes it a challenge to spend time alone in the company of yours truly. Actively planning time to be alone now provides an opportunity for really powerful messages to come through.
3. You always have a choice – In a place that needs a lot of rules for harmony its very empowering to use your power of choice and really actively chose how you react and live.
4. Love your family for who they are – not who you want them to be – as a cast we live like an adult family. We are always going to be us but we work very closely. Acceptance and allowance of how other people are going to be is key to harmony in our family.
5. Spend time exploring possibility – in a confined space it’s very easy to complain about what isn’t right rather than looking for space of see the possibilities. Be active in finding the possibilities and bigger visions for the future.
6. You make your space beautiful – every time I have moved I have always felt disjointed until I make the space my own. It needs it, you need it and other people notice it. We always get comments on how lovely and spacious our cabin is because of the energy we put into it.
7. You can help – every night I do a mini prayer/meditation for my cast and those who need it. I imagine white and pink light surrounding those that need it to make life easier for the rest of us involved. It always helps and you stop being annoyed at the people that are being challenged at the moment.
8. Have compassion for everybody – there is always someone out there that would love to have our worst day ever. Never before have I been so grateful for my life the way it is because I see the alternative in front of me every day. I always greet and smile to those lovely people that are doing a job I couldn’t.
9. Have something interesting to do – having an outside life is super important for realizing how piddley some of your ‘problems’ are. If you have something more interesting to focus on other than your job/kids/husband/outside work (no matter how lovely they are) then it’s a great escape and human feeling world to go into and just revel in being you.
10. Give quality time – simply being there or with other people doesn’t mean that you will develop a relationship with them or make them feel great. Spending your attention wisely and with focus will create relationships that give love.

Self love, Spirituality and Growth is an interesting path full of bumps on the road and is definitely more than this little list here so now I want to know where have you gained spirituality from that’s unusual?

  3. Thanks for the advice on credit repair on this amazing site. Some tips i would tell people should be to give up a mentality they will buy right now and fork out later. As being a society all of us tend to try this for many issues. This includes trips, furniture, and items we would like. However, you should separate one’s wants from the needs. When you are working to improve your credit score you really have to make some sacrifices. For example you may shop online to save cash or you can visit second hand suppliers instead of high-priced department stores intended for clothing.

  4. I have seen a lot of useful points on your website about desktops. However, I’ve the thoughts and opinions that laptop computers are still not nearly powerful more than enough to be a good option if you generally do things that require a lot of power, just like video editing. But for world-wide-web surfing, microsoft word processing, and many other common computer work they are fine, provided you do not mind the screen size. Many thanks sharing your thinking.

  5. Thanks for another informative web site. Where else could I get that type of information written in such a perfect way? I’ve a project that I am just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such information.

  6. I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content in your case? I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome site!

  7. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We grabbed a book from our area library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there…

  8. The very core of your writing whilst appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not settle properly with me after some time. Someplace throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and one would do nicely to help fill in all those breaks. In the event you can accomplish that, I could surely be fascinated.

  9. Thanks for the a new challenge you have revealed in your blog post. One thing I’d like to comment on is that FSBO relationships are built as time passes. By releasing yourself to owners the first end of the week their FSBO is actually announced, prior to a masses start out calling on Monday, you build a good connection. By giving them equipment, educational resources, free records, and forms, you become a good ally. By using a personal curiosity about them and their circumstances, you develop a solid interconnection that, oftentimes, pays off if the owners decide to go with a real estate agent they know and also trust — preferably you.

  10. A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to write more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but usually folks don’t talk about these issues. To the next! Cheers!!

  11. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.

  12. Spot on with this write-up, I honestly feel this amazing site needs far more attention. I’ll probably be back again to read more, thanks for the information!

  13. I do not even know the way I ended up here, but I assumed this submit was good. I don’t realize who you might be but definitely you’re going to a famous blogger in case you are not already ;) Cheers!

  14. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
