Through ecstatic dance I move through the beat into a trance and I vision myself walking into the dark ocean, moonlit and foamy. I hear the soft wash of the current moving on the sand and I walk ever deeper into the sea until I am encompassed by the ocean herself. I stand bare under the moonlight and I wear the sea as my flowing gown. I lay my hands upon the ocean surface, cool and sleek like silk, the foam creating white high lights under the glorious full moon. I embrace the feeling of oneness and I drink in the cool water beneath me and white light of the moon and stars above. I look deeper, I part the sea, step down under until I reach the sea bed. Rich grains of sand that carry the memories of the world they once belonged to, shimmering under the sun. I dip through the sand absorbing the texture of centuries of broken down sea shells and fossils. Under the sand I find a fresh water ocean, a small private lagoon for me. I am swallowed into the purest water I have ever witnessed. I allow this pure energy to permeate my very being. I emerge from the oceans womb and step into the desert. Hot and intoxicating rays beat down on me and I am in bliss. I dance with my sisters kicking up the sand. We enliven ourselves to deep tribal beats that have moved us for eons. We move beyond what we know as earthly beings and we become holy. Above us is the Sphinx newly carved and painted we are reverent, awed and entranced in its power. We dance, unashamedly, raw and we awaken to deeper realities of who we are, moving through time we are connected in our ecstasy. Pure love and joy flows through our veins, we sweat we shriek and we pulsate to the base of the drums. I see a hieroglyph of a snake goddess and I follow her into a tomb underneath the desert. The black snake uncoils from around the shoulders of the snake goddess and begins to coil herself around me. I am hypnotised by the rhythmic movement and encircled by her power until my skin become scales. I am venom, I am stealth I hold secrets so deep they will never be unravelled. The snake goddess gives me sight beyond sight, beyond time. All of the senses are woken. The pure bliss state is fully intoxicating.
I return with the beat of the drum to be surrounded by my sisters dancing under the full moon.
