Although this was in 2013, it is very much true for today. Read on…

THE HARLEM SHAKE (a phenomenon)



I get so much joy out of seeing people smile, laugh, DANCE and enjoying themselves through radical self-expression. It makes me so happy to see the world independently getting their friends, colleagues, pro-sports players, parents, grandparents, animals, cartoons characters, bobble-heads, unicorns, hot chicks in bikinis, army mates, politicians, and newscasters to go out of their mind, even if it’s just for 31 seconds. (According to my son, who YouTube all the time, that was the requirement for the video to keep us engaged.) This, of course, got me thinking— WOW, this is GREAT! 

People are getting into their body and out of their thoughts. They are dancing, laughing, moving blood around, moving cells around, producing healthy ENERGY out of CREATIVITY. Let’s talk about that for a minute…

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. World Health Organization.

If the body is moving, then the cells are moving. When there is movement, there is a regeneration of the cells creating more health. We are WAKING UP the cell system giving more life to our body, opening up neural pathways for receiving information creating avenues towards a new perspective on life!

When cells in the body regenerate, become alive, they send messages to the brain — [Hollywood style script] CELL: “Hey brain, SOMETHING IS HAPPENING there is movement, we must respond!  [The brain responds in a Tom Cruz voice] BRAIN: “We need to keep up with the body and produce serotonin!!!!” Increasing serotonin arises from the increasing recognition that happiness and wellbeing are important, both as factors protecting against mental and physical disorders.

My BLOVE Theory

“Community events focused on music, dance, and creativity support healing and health.”

I LOVE MUSIC FESTIVALS! Music festivals are mostly multiple days of the movement, the sun, sound, community building of like-minded individuals releasing from the regular grind, some call life.

I LOVE VOLUNTEERING. GIFTING and other practices of care and helping others produce serotonin.

  • Did you know low social support is associated with higher levels of stress, depression, dysthymia, and post-traumatic stress disorder?
  • Did you know studies have shown volunteering produces higher serotonin levels?
  • Did you know exposure to bright light (sun) is a second possible approach to increasing serotonin without drugs?

Between the HUGH movement of activities in the electronic dance music scene, the online-Harlem Shake, social groups like crowd funding, crowd sourcing, music festivals, and volunteering growth SOMETHING is brewing… Are you seeing what I am seeing???

  ****** “A global healing is taking place.”  *******

RECAP on the GLOBAL “PHENOMENON” healing movement of the HARLEM SHAKE, (EDM) Electric Dance Music, FESTIVALS, and COMMUNITY using a radical self-expression to produce a medicinal cocktail we call serotonin.

If the ENTIRE WORLD produced this natural healing for themselves, could we then respond to others needs once we are in a better state of health? I think so.


My offering to you is to go outside TODAY, put on your headphones, dance under the sun, radically and release the healing juice!
