Dance with Joy to Raise Your Vibration and Feel So Much Better

I love to watch dance shows because when the dancing is wonderful and breathtaking, as it so often is on these shows, my heart is uplifted and my soul feels as though it is dancing along with the dancers. When you watch contestants on shows such as “Dancing with the Stars,” “So You Think You Can Dance,” and more recently on “World of Dance,” the competitions mean so much to those competing. These competitions also often grip the hearts of those watching and following the progress of the dancers and dance teams.
I think part of the reason that these shows are so popular, in addition to the great talent that provides such wonderful entertainment, each of us is dancing too in some way and on some level, even if only vibrationally. There is something so healing about dance and the movement of the body. When dance is performed at a very high level of excellence, there is almost a thrilling kind of resonance that takes place, transporting those watching to the lofty zone where the dancers are.

There are also so many health benefits to dancing, from improving your mood and balance, to weight loss and a healthier heart. To learn more about these benefits, check out an article here.
I love to watch the brilliance of Derek Hough, one of the former performers on “Dancing with the Stars” and now a judge on “World of Dance.” He is so dynamically gifted and perhaps comes closest to a modern-day version of Fred Astaire. His choreography is also always top-notch. His best friend Mark Ballas, who has also been a professional dancer on “Dancing with the Stars,” is an amazing dancer and also a very creative choreographer. As if their extraordinary dancing and choreography gifts are not dazzling enough, both are also talented musicians and singers who were once in a band together called The Ballas Hough Band.
With both being so abundantly multi-talented, it is no surprise that one of my favorite performances of all time from “Dancing with the Stars” is one where Derek choreographs a Paso Doble dance that begins with Derek playing guitar and has Mark performing throughout the dance with fiery flair on his guitar as Derek dances with Chelsie Hightower in a very powerful performance. Please check it out here. I know however you are feeling before you see it, after watching it, your spirit will be transported somewhere else and your vibration will definitely be higher.
Imagine yourself caught up in the emotion and excitement of this fabulous and intense dance. When I watched it again, I had to watch the next YouTube dance video that came up just because it felt so good watching Derek and his incredibly talented sister Julianne Hough, now a judge on “Dancing with the Stars,” doing a high-powered jive. What fun that was! You can check it out here.
Too many people don’t have the time to move and dance, or they may be ill or have some other limiting reasons why they are not able to dance or move their bodies to music in some way. “Dancing with the Stars” often selects a contestant who has some major physical or emotional impairment that becomes even more inspirational to watch as the audience week after week sees what the contestant can do and how he or she can succeed when they have the will to do it and are teamed up with the right instructor. Nyle DiMarco, a model who is deaf, beat out every competitor to win the famed mirror-ball trophy with professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd. To learn more about his win, click here.
Another “Dancing with the Stars” competitor, Amy Purdy, who is a double-amputee and snowboarding champion, came in second place with her dance partner Derek Hough. The winner that year was Olympic champion gold medal ice dancer Meryl Davis. To learn more about Amy’s success as a dancer, click here.
For even those with limitations, there are gentle ways of moving the body while listening to music.
For my birthday last year, my husband Sharbel and I went to see two of the stars from “Dancing with the Stars,” Maksim Chmerkovskiy (known as “Maks”) and his brother Val, perform live in their touring “Maks and Val” dance show. It was a lovely way to usher in another year and to set the tone for an upbeat resonance. Both brothers are also extraordinarily talented and their love for one another raises the vibration even higher. To see Maks and Val performing a fun dance segment from that show, you can click here.
Attract More Love E-book
In my e-book, “25 Ways to Attract More Love Into Your Life,” one of the ways is to have fun and dance. The best way to attract more love into your life is to raise your vibration and be in joy. It’s the way you can start attracting so many good things into your vibrational vortex. So what better way to raise your vibration than to put on your favorite dance music and start moving to the beat?
I was so inspired when my instructor, Dr. Amy Rothenberg, who is both a homeopathic and naturopathic doctor, sent a link to our class of her dance with our other instructor, her husband Dr. Paul Herscu, the night before she was scheduled for some major surgery. They have been taking ballroom dancing lessons for years and did a beautiful “two-step” that brought tears to my eyes while watching the poignant video. Very inspirational indeed! I am sure that their dance uplifted both their hearts during a very difficult time and inspired so many others who viewed it. When talking about homeopathic remedies for anxiety and depression, they also shared that moving and exercising the body is one of the best ways to help improve both anxiety and depression.
My husband and I took a few weeks of dance lessons so we could do our first dance together at our wedding. Our dance was to John Legend’s song, “All of Me.” We plan to take some dance lessons here in California too because it just is fun to move and play. You can listen to his beautiful song here.
On weekends, when we have more time, we are now choosing a song to dance to before we have our breakfast. Our dog Harry joins in the fun too. It’s a great way to start our day. Even if Sharbel wakes up in a serious mood, I see all that seriousness melt away as he gets into his own rhythm and begins moving and smiling. We both spend many hours sitting in front of a computer, so it’s very healthy to have this additional way of exercising. I dare you not to feel better by dancing to an upbeat song that you love. It will raise both your mood and your energy level.

High-powered entrepreneurs who hold inspirational events all know the power of music and how it makes attendees feel so good and keeps them energized and attentive. Fabienne Fredrickson, of Boldheart Business, loves to dance and does it so well. The night before she hosts her Mindset Retreat in Fort Lauderdale, FL, she has a party for attendees. At the one my husband and I attended a few months after we were married in June of 2014, she was dancing non-stop on the dance floor and loving every minute of it.
She also integrates music and dance into her events to uplift and inspire others and just for the joy and fun of it. At the Mindset Retreat, she often played “Roar” by Katy Perry during breaks. Whenever I hear that song, I am transported back to a time of fun and high vibration.
I watched Katy Perry’s performance at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester, England to raise money for the victims of the terror event. She sang “Roar” and it had new meaning in the wake of so many terroristic events. I hope she raises your vibration as you dance to her heartfelt rendition of the song. She put so much love and energy into it. You can see her singing it here.

When my husband and I attended Brendon Burchard’s High Performance Academy event, music was played during every break. One song, “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, became the event’s anthem. That’s the song that my husband and I often like to dance to. To listen to it, click here. It got everyone up and moving, excited to learn, and interested to see what was coming next.
You can check out his video as this song played when Brendon walked out on the stage. It certainly energized the crowd. I think it will do the same for you!
Sara Bareille’s “Brave” is another great song to sing and dance to. You can watch it here on YouTube. Sometimes to attract more love into your life and to manifest what would make you happiest requires that you step out of your comfort zone and be BRAVE.
Another song I always love and that always gets me up and moving and feeling so good is the song by The Black Eyed Peas called “I Gotta Feeling.” You can listen to it here. We played it at our wedding and brought so many of our guests up onto the dance floor to join us in this celebratory song. It’s hard to listen to it and not begin to move and dance.

So dance. Feel free and let your inner child out to play. Just show up and start dancing. When you do, you will feel lighter and brighter. Having fun, playing and getting your body moving is a great way to begin attracting more love, joy, health and abundance into your life. It’s also a great way to raise your vibration. And when you do, you open up pathways for all that you desire to begin making its way to you in physical form.
So let loose with abandon and JUST DANCE as Lady Gaga shares in her video below.
Wishing you so many blessings, so much joy, and so much fun dancing and moving around,
With gratitude, love and light,
Rev. Donna El Haber
