one of the most difficult parts of our divine path as women is the darkness that comes and goes throughout our lives. sometimes this darkness is confusion, other times, it’s trials of health, faith, grief, or sorrow. something that can help tremendously is a special sisterhood relationship. a gift, when it happens within one’s family, but even more powerful at times can be that bond of sisterhood found in unexpected places. when that friendship sparks and grows, we can see more clearly as a group through the darkness, we can bear the burdens together with our combined strength, and we can collectively accomplish the seemingly impossible. the dance team depicted did just that. they faced pandemic times together, supported one another, and danced through it all. that movement took them places physically, but also spiritually and mentally. dance can unite us as a group, but also with divinity. these girls and their teacher showed their families, studio, community, and even those beyond that we can find joy and fulfillment in the darkest times of our mortal journey. may they continue to find this joy, peace & love together, and continually share it with everyone around them.
the lotus flowers and pond are a representation of life, fertility & creation. the pond remind us to rely on the Infinite Atonement of Jesus Christ and partake of His Living Waters. their ability to dance on the waters also reminds us that the group can do the unimaginable through Christ. the antelope represents those watching over this sweet group: the Father & His Son. they can also remind us of those who’ve passed on, watching over the girls and providing them strength. the largest tree on the left is Asherah, our Divine Feminine & Heavenly Mother. the other trees represent Her daughters, the mothers of these dancers, also looking over, surrounding them and giving them life, love, and support.
