Absent From Blogging: A New Direction in My Healing Journey

Some my wonder why I have not been blogging every day like I was and where I have been. This summer has been a summer of soul searching, spiritual journey and healing for me. As I have continued on my healing path, I have found that my calling is doing Reiki Jin Kei Do, Nia, sharing my video poems and being more present to the people in my life.

Right now, I am a creative bend as I choreograph my first routine. I have a gift for finding healing music, putting together a playlist and sharing with my community. As I do this process, I am finding my true calling which is dancing and sharing from my heart. Dance is a huge part of my life. Nia is a huge part of my life and has helped me heal so much. This summer, I have retaken Nia blue belt, went to Soma Ranch in Montgomery, Texas to take Floor Play with Debbie Rosas and then traveled to Michigan to retake blue belt.  I have been surrounded by unconditional love, support, compassion, strength, understanding, and community that has helped me to come even more home to my body.

This routine I am creating is my way to freedom. As I listen to the music, I am realizing just how much I have released, continue to release, dance with the emotion that shows up, allow myself to sound and feel my feelings. So, I will not be blogging as much. If you want to find me, I am still on Twitter, Instagram, You Tube, and on my facebook page. Healing is the most important thing to me. Helping others to heal is very important to me as to why I must finish my routine.  Please come check out my other pages and twitter feed.

Heart Felt Message From Julie Jewels Smoot


My book tells more then just what happened to me. It’s my healing path. It’s me realizing that I can speak my truth, feel my feelings, express my feelings and heal from everything that has happened to me. It’s me stepping into to coming back into my body. It’s how I have healed and continue to heal. It’s me realizing that I am an empowered Warrior and I not be silenced. It’s me becoming visible and not afraid to be seen for who I am. It’s a book that is meant to be a guide to help survivors, doctor, nurses, nurse practitioners, law enforcement officers, professors, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers.  It’s about me stepping into my purpose and taking all of the pain I feel to help society to understand.
